Teen Jenny

Jenny was designed as a teenager of about 16 years of age (in design and mentality), but it was 5 years since she had been created, prior to the events of "I Was a Preschool Dropout". As her number indicates, she had several prototypes, whom she treats as her "sisters". While she was designed as a teenage robot, presumably with the adolescent mind of a 15-year old or so, she did undergo a period of infancy ("Humiliation 101"). As revealed in the same episode, she also spent some of her early years as a crude steam-powered robot before being upgraded to hydronium-electric hybrid-power (as seen in the blueprints of her Master Plan).

Thanks to having advanced artificial intelligence, Jenny's personality is that of an eager, young, tomboyish teenager. She desires a sense of freedom but also wants acceptance from her peers. She generally possesses a kind personality and likes anything pertaining to teenage activities, but becomes agitated when her mother or her duties get in her way of her enjoyment. Unfortunately, being kind and sweet, she is easily trusting of others and, as a result, can be quite naive. The Crust Cousins, Brit and Tiff, have often taken advantage of this for self-gain or to humiliate Jenny. Despite this, she can also be mischievous, hotheaded, careless, and stubborn at times, but always learns from her mistakes.

Since Dr. Nora Wakeman is the one who designed and built Jenny, she comes to view her as her mother. Like most mothers with teenage daughters, Dr. Wakeman and Jenny sometimes argue with each other, but Dr. Wakeman truly loves Jenny as if she was a biological daughter. At first, Dr. Wakeman confined Jenny in her bedroom in fear of Jenny possibly not being accepted by society, but when she saw that Jenny made friends after sneaking out of the house, Dr. Wakeman decided to give her more freedom.

Brad is Jenny's first and best friend. She usually confides in him on her personal feelings and any other emotions she is going through. He often gives Jenny advice and helps her on missions, as well as normal teenager activities, while causing trouble of his own. He also usually goes on Jenny's side of things and defends her, especially with drama at high school. They often hang out as well.

Jenny first shared a friendly relationship with Misty when they first met in the episode Teen Team Time, and when Misty returned to Earth in Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles. At first, Jenny was delighted to have a teenage girl friend who could stay on the phone all day long and do normal teenage activities with her.

However, in Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles Misty's pranks on the Crust Cousins became extremely cruel and sadistic, and Misty showed a dark, megalomaniacal side of herself in her attempts to terrorize them with their worst fears. Because of this, Misty was expelled from Tremorton High School, and her cruel behavior made Jenny to begin to worry that her teen alien friend was becoming villainous.

My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American animated science fiction superhero comedy television series created by Rob Renzetti for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Frederator Studios and Nickelodeon Animation Studio.[2][3] Set in the fictional town of Tremorton, the series follows the adventures of a robot super-heroine named XJ-9, or Jenny, as she prefers to be called, who attempts to juggle her duties of protecting Earth while trying to live a normal human life as a teenage girl.[4]

Renzetti made 11 shorts during two seasons as a director on Oh Yeah! Cartoons. Five of these starred two characters called Mina and the Count and followed the adventures of a rambunctious little girl and her vampire best friend. He hoped that these characters might get their own series, but Nickelodeon rejected the idea. Faced with an empty slot where the sixth Mina short was slated to go, Fred Seibert tasked Renzetti to come up with three new ideas. One of these was about a teenage girl whose boyfriend was a robot. After further thought, Renzetti merged the two characters to create Jenny, a robot with the personality of a teenage girl.

Sean Aitchison from CBR wrote positively of the show stating, "Aside from the look of the show, My Life as a Teenage Robot had a fun premise that made for some great action comedy storytelling, and it definitely holds up [in modern day]. Though the show's depiction of teendom is somewhat outdated, the cliches actually end up working in favor of the humor. Though there's not a lot of story progression throughout the series, My Life as a Teenage Robot is still a whole lot of fun."[13] Joly Herman of Common Sense Media wrote more negatively of the show, saying that, "Though it looks cool and has an upbeat energy, the show can be a bit of a drag. Some kids may enjoy it for the mindless entertainment it intends to be, but know that there are much better uses of a free half-hour."[14]

The Seattle Police Department is one of a dozen cities nationwide sharing in a $3.6 million Department of Justice grant aimed at putting more police officers on the street to address youth violence. The $125,000 in federal money will pay for one additional police officer for Seattle. In its grant application, the Seattle Police Department said the federally funded officer will focus on ways to address and prevent teen violence.

The COPS Hiring Program provides the salary and benefits for officer and deputy hires for three years. In FY 2012, the COPS Office asked all COPS Hiring Program applicants to target the high priority crime problem of homicide and children exposed to violence/teen violence. The City of Seattle was selected to receive funding based on their strategy to address the specific problem of teen violence.

The use of tanning beds has been associated with addictive behavior and may contribute to a compulsive desire to tan [11]. The brain of a person who habitually tans exhibits activity similar to that of a substance abuser and can experience tolerance, dependence, and withdrawal [11]. The brain responds to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and can differentiate UVR from non-UVR tanning beds.11 When counseling these patients, it may be beneficial to use screening tools including the CAGE questionnaire (Table 1) to determine the motivation and goals associated with excessive tanning [12]. Understanding these desires will improve the ability of a provider to suggest appropriate alternatives to tanning [12]. For example, individuals who tan for relaxation may substitute yoga as an appropriate alternative, while those who tan for aesthetic purposes may choose to use dihydroxyacetone, the active ingredient in sunless tanners, as an alternative. It is also pertinent to discuss tanning in the pediatric and teenage populations to fully understand familial beliefs about tanning. Children whose parents tan indoors are more likely to do the same compared to children whose parents do not tan; a population based survey found that indoor tanning was 30% in the twelve to eighteen year old age group when the caregiver personally tanned compared to only 10% when the caregiver did not tan [13].

Today in Your Health, we're going to take a little better care of your skin. We'll have a new way to detect poison ivy. And we begin with acne - the scourge of many a teenager's life, which is getting harder to treat. NPR's Patti Neighmond reports on why and what doctors are trying to do about it.

NEIGHMOND: For most teenagers with mild acne, over the counter products containing peroxide or salicylic acid are enough to clear up the acne. But lots of teenagers end up in the doctor's office getting antibiotics. And this was the hardest thing for Bagrodia. No matter how much she followed doctor's orders, diligently cleaning her face and using antibiotic cream, nothing worked. Dermatologist Elizabeth Martin says this bacteria, like many others, is mutating quickly and becoming resistant to antibiotics.
