Seventeen-year-old Thomas Hunt was one of 20 young people selected through a competitive process to receive $100,000 over two years to forego traditional education and pursue scientific research. The fellowship was created by Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies, through the Thiel Foundation. It offers students under the age of 20 not only financial support, but guidance and other resources. Thomas has devoted the last three years to studying Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres, or ALT, a mechanism that is suggested to be indirectly responsible for all cancers. He said he plans to use the money to buy lab equipment and travel to other labs and meet others in the field.

Activists from the San Jose Brown Berets, who first launched a petition in August to remove it, said the airport would be a far worse location — it would be the first thing people from all over the world would see when they step foot into San Jose. Peter Ortiz, co-chair of the Brown Berets, said he’s disappointed the city has delayed the issue until January.
