This week Awesome Stories brings you Teddy’s teacher, cool batteries, Danny’s gang, sustainable zoos and smooth magic. Enjoy!
Get your tissues ready! This is a very touching story about the power of one person to change the direction of another person’s life. It’s hard to say whether Teddy or his teacher, Mrs. Thompson was more impacted. Mrs. Thompson became the kind of teacher we all want. And Teddy turned his life around. I’ll leave the details for your enjoyment!

Here are some brand new batteries that could truly be a game changer for solving all the challenges with batteries. These batteries use only carbon with no toxic metals, last about 10 times longer, charge 20 times faster, cost less and don’t heat up or require cooling, meaning they’re very safe. If testing confirms their performance, Power Japan Plus could transform the markets for EVs, batteries and energy storage, allowing renewable energy to be much more competitive too. Here is the PJP promo video if you’re interested. Keep your fingers crossed!
Meet Danny’s gang and learn how they stood up for Danny and helped teach others students a valuable lesson. Danny Keefe had been getting bullied at school for wearing suits and his speech impediment. When Danny’s pee wee football teammates heard about the bullying, they decided to do something to stand up for Danny and offer a lesson to other kids. Watch the video for the rest of this story that tugged at my heart.
Look at this wonderful project at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, DC. Next time I go see my family, I plan to see this Elephant Trails exhibit. The National Zoo has totally rebuilt their habitat and buildings for the elephants to be much more healthy and sustainable. They’ve created geo- thermal walls, natural lighting and many features to make the habitat more natural for the elephants like larger communal rooms, natural ventilation and lighting, sand and earth floors and varied terrains. This LEED sustainable model is being duplicated at zoos around the country to both save energy, protect the animals and serve as a model of good stewardship for endangered animals like elephants.
This ghetto magician will dazzle you or at least bring a smile to your face, especially the judges’ reactions. Enjoy a Smoothini treat. XD
