Eleven-year-old child prodigy Huey Carson may not be old enough to vote, but he’ll be learning about politics and much more at Texas Christian University.

The 4-foot-7 student has always been above average. He graduated as co-valedictorian from private school when he was 10-years-old, which comes as no surprise since he was reading by the time he was 2. The young scholar scored a 1770 on his ACT and also speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese.

He even wowed the administration during his admissions interview by playing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” on the piano. He actually had a little trouble getting into college, not because of his academic skills but because the system used for the application forms couldn’t recognize his age (the system does not accept applications from potential students born before 2002)!

Carson is determined to earn his Ph.D. in physics and wants to do research to “discover something huge that will impact our way of life and better our planet,” according to his mom.

Congrats Huey and good luck in college!

US Open Tennis

Seventeen-year-old Victoria Duval is a true champion. The young tennis player recently competed and won the biggest upset in the US Open so far when she triumphed over former champion Samantha Stosur. She won her first ever Grand Slam victory (5-7, 6-4, 6-4) after coming back from 35 unforced errors.

“I just tried to stay in the moment,” Victoria told ESPN after the match. “I don’t know, I’m just really excited right now.”

Victoria’s strength endures beyond the tennis courts. Her father had to be dug out of rubble after nearly being buried alive during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Victoria herself was visiting an aunt when armed robbers held her and her family for hours.

“I am lucky to be here,” Victoria said. “My family is lucky.”

Congratulations on the win!

Check out this short clip that shows Victoria talking about her tennis beginnings.

    Rapper Snoop Lion has enlisted the help of his entire family for his new video. The video for the song, “The Good Good,” features Snoop, his wife and three children, Cordell, Corde and Cori Broadus.

    Singer Mali Nicole also makes an appearance in the video as Cordell’s love interest. Cordell tries to win her heart with a necklace that he purchased from Overstock.com.

    Snoop and family have teamed up with Overstock.com to feature some of the family’s favorite things (such as a Char-Broil Four-burner Kettle Grill and Miadora pink-gold earrings) in their online “Snoopermarket.”

    The slow, cool reggae song is from Snoop’s album, ‘Reincarnated.’

    Check out the video for “The Good Good” below.
