Since your copy editor friend isn’t available 24/7, take knowledge into your own hands with the life-changing Grammarly extension. It’s grammar know-it-all, spellcheck extraordinaire, and dictionary all-in-one. Never again will an accidental use of “you’re” instead of “your” defy your smarts.

DTES unexpectedly cooperative, bound together – Vancouver Police Department

“This community has soul, victimising the vulnerable is far beneath the people of the Downtown Eastside. For the very rare, and despicable person who is willing to victimise vulnerable people, you should know.”

The VPD isn’t considering this a failed operation. Instead, Horsely took the opportunity to warn that people who look to victimise the vulnerable will be met with heaps of resistance.

“The police are watching — but more importantly, the people of the Downtown Eastside are watching.”

Even a relatively simple neural network can be used to over-interpret an image, just like as children we enjoyed watching clouds and interpreting the random shapes. This network was trained mostly on images of animals, so naturally it tends to interpret shapes as animals. But because the data is stored at such a high abstraction, the results are an interesting remix of these learned features.

One ground robot nicknamed #μTug weighs just 12 grams, it can drag a weight that's 2,000 times heavier – "the same as you pulling around a blue whale", explains David Christensen – who is in the Stanford lab.

Another 9-gram bot can hoist more than a kilogram as it climbs. In this video it's carrying StickyBot, the Stanford lab's first ever robot gecko, built in 2006.

The super-strong bots – built by mechanical engineers at Stanford University in California – will be presented next month at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Seattle, Washington.

The secret is in the adhesives on the robots' feet. Their design is inspired by geckos, which have climbing skills that are legendary in the animal kingdom. The adhesives are covered in minute rubber spikes that grip firmly onto the wall as the robot climbs. When pressure is applied, the spikes bend, increasing their surface area and thus their stickiness. When the robot picks its foot back up, the spikes straighten out again and detach easily.

The bots also move in a style that is borrowed from biology. Like an inchworm, one pad scooches the robot forward while the other stays in place to support the heavy load. This helps the robot avoid falls from missing its step and park without using up precious power.
