Cheetah robot lands the running jump (w/ Video) - In a leap for robot development, the MIT researchers who built a robotic cheetah have now trained it to see and jump over hurdles as it runs—making this the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously. http://ow.ly/2ZdFhT

Killer T Cell: The Cancer Assassin

● Caught on camera:
In this video, researchers at the University of Cambridge have captured cytoxic T cells - a specialised type of white blood cell whose function is to patrol our bodies and kill cells which are cancerous or infected with viruses.

Shown as orange or green in the video, these specialised cells travel around our body using protrusions to explore the surface of the cells they encounter. If they detect the cell as cancerous or infected (blue), they are able to bind to them and inject poisonous cytotoxin proteins (red) to kill the cell.

● Abstract from the source:
Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) use polarized secretion to rapidly destroy virally infected and tumor cells. To understand the temporal relationships between key events leading to secretion, we used high-resolution 4D imaging. CTLs approached targets with actin-rich projections at the leading edge, creating an initially actin-enriched contact with rearward-flowing actin. Within 1 min, cortical actin reduced across the synapse, T cell receptors (TCRs) clustered centrally to form the central supramolecular activation cluster (cSMAC), and centrosome polarization began. Granules clustered around the moving centrosome within 2.5 min and reached the synapse after 6 min. TCR-bearing intracellular vesicles were delivered to the cSMAC as the centrosome docked.

Price cut: now you can get your hands on a Raspberry Pi Model B+ for only $25!
When we announced the Raspberry Pi 2 back in February, we said that we’d continue to support its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi Model B+. Since then, we’ve sold well over a million units of Raspberry Pi 2, but Model B+ has also continued to sell very well, despite also costing $35. A side effect of …

Poor service, poor food. Went in there about 6pn, the waiters could barely be bothered to speak let alone smile. Limited food choice with nondescript names such as 'meat curry', though to be fair they don't have an awful lot of room. Stale naans that were so hard I couldn't cut them with a knife. Actually the 'chicken curry' was edible, almost quite nice, but everything else was substandard. One to remember...to avoid.
