Biohybrid micro-robot: the biological robots

Mirobio robot

Scientists led by Oliver Schmidt created the biological robots or biobots powered by sperm in the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences in Dresden, Germany on December 2013.

It is also called as biohybrid micro-robot.

The researchers created magnetic nanotubes that were 50 microns long by 5 to 8 microns in diameter and dropped these into a fluid containing bull sperm.

The tubes were narrower at one end to stop the sperm from escaping and can be rotated by using magnetic fields.

The tail-like flagellum of the sperm cell sticks outside the end of the tube and power the bibot like a propeller

Benefits

These "biobots" can be used to guide individual sperm or to deliver targeted doses of drugs or fertilizing an egg. Schmidt Said that sperm cells are an attractive option because they are harmless to the human body, do not require an external power source and swam through viscous liquids.

Till now researchers has only managed to persuade groups of cells to cooperate with the help of chemical gradients and magnetic fields.

World News: Fast and Furious Actor Paul Walker Dead at 40 in Car Crash

1451392_458009454305184_1989262231_nSanta Clarita, California (CNN) – Actor Paul Walker, who shot to fame as star of the high-octane street racing franchise "Fast & Furious," died in a fiery car crash in Southern California on Saturday. He was 40.

Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a racing team partner, that slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

Walker's publicist Ame van Iden confirmed his death Saturday. The driver, identified by CNN affiliate KCAL-TV as Roger Rodus, also died.

"Thank you all for your condolences and prayers while we mourn the loss of our loved ones," read a message posted on the Facebook page for Always Forever, the high-performance car shop owned by Rodus.

Los Angeles Coroner Investigator Dana Bee told CNN on Sunday it would likely take 48 hours to officially identify the remains taken from the twisted wreckage. The families are gathering dental records for use in the identification, which is necessary because of the condition of the bodies, Bee said.

Speed was a factor in the crash, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said. A 45 mph speed limit sign was attached to the light pole knocked down by the Porsche.

The car, which sold for $450,000 when new, is a notoriously difficult vehicle to handle, even for professional drivers, according to Autoweek magazine. A top driver called it "scary," the magazine reported Sunday. It is powered by a V-10, 610-hp engine.

The wreck took place about 3:30 p.m. just a few hundred yards from the shop owned by Rodus. Both men had attended a holiday toy drive for Walker's charity, Reach Out Worldwide, hosted at the shop Saturday afternoon.

Antonio Holmes told the Santa Clarita Valley Signal newspaper that he was at the charity event when Walker and Rodus left for a ride in the Porsche.

"We all heard from our location," Holmes told the Signal. "It's a little difficult to know what it was. Someone called it in and said it was a vehicle fire. We all ran around and jumped in cars and grabbed fire extinguishers and immediately went to the vehicle. It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried. We went through fire extinguishers."

A crowd of grieving fans, curious onlookers and media surrounded the crash site for hours, watching as investigators and firefighters worked to extract the bodies from the wreckage. A memorial of flowers, left by fans, remained on the charred roadside Sunday.

Walker and Rodus had planned Saturday as a day to help survivors of victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The car shop website invited customers to the Charity Toy Drive & Automotive Social Gathering.

"During the holiday season, many economically disadvantaged children from around the world are faced with the same dilemma year after year; the lacking of joy and cheer," the invitation read. "Our goal here is to be able to provide aid to these less fortunate children in hopes of helping them grow up to become confident, responsible and productive young adults."

Walker's charity is described as "a network of professionals with first responder skill-sets who augment local expertise when natural disasters strike in order to accelerate relief efforts."

The website lists Rodus as captain and lead driver of the shop's racing team. Walker is also listed as a team driver.

Hollywood left stunned by Walker's death

Walker's generosity

Tales of the actor's philanthropy are not new. CNN confirmed one story from a decade ago when Walker noticed a young U.S. military veteran shopping with his fiance for a wedding ring in a Santa Barbara jewelry store.

"The groom was just back from duty in Iraq, and he was going to be deployed again soon and wanted to buy a wedding ring, but he said he just could not afford it," saleswoman Irene King told CNN. "I don't think the soldier realized how expensive those rings are, about $10,000."

Although Walker noticed them, the couple apparently did not know who he was, King said.

"Walker called the manager over and said, 'Put that girl's ring on my tab,' " she said. "Walker left all his billing info, and it was a done deal. The couple was stunned. She was thrilled and could not believe someone did this."

King called it "the most generous thing I have ever seen."

Box office success

Walker's career began on the small screen, first with a commercial for Pampers when he was 2, and then with parts in shows such as "Highway to Heaven" and "Touched by an Angel."

Tech Use: Google Calendar to remember important dates and plan your study schedule

Students and Aspirants can make effective use of Google Calendar to remember Important Dates


The method is really simple, and can be properly executed in three simple steps:

 Step 1 Collect the entire schedule

Before you start using Google Calendar as a study planner, you must have the entire schedule of forthcoming events at your disposal. You can go about that objective by locating an official copy of the important dates and times on the Web.


https://www.google.com/calendar/

For the sake of simplicity, we have enlisted the entire schedule for JEE 2014 below:

The results of JEE (Main) will be announced on May 3, 2014.

  • JEE (Advanced) registrations commences on May 4, 2014.
  • JEE (Advanced) registrations ends on May 9, 2014.
  • Admits cards will be available online from May 10, 2014 till May 24, 2014.
  • JEE (Advanced) will be held on May 25, 2014.
  • Answer keys will be available online on June 1, 2014.
  • Results will be available (online) on June 19, 2014.

Step 2: Identify the important dates

Just like the previous one, this one is also pretty simple. All you would require doing is identify the most important dates (such as date of the exam, date of receiving admit cards, and so on). Keep visiting the official JEE website regularly so as to make sure that you don't miss out on any new or updated information.

 Step 3: Get organized

This is the most important and slightly complicated step(if you have never used Google Calendar before). To access Google Calendar, you must have a free Google account. If you don't have a Google account, click here and fill the form to create one.

Once you can access Google Calendar, straightway go to the important dates that you want to highlight and create reminder for. For example, if you want to add a reminder for the JEE (Main) pen and paper exam, choose April 6, 2014 by navigating through the calendar on the left hand side of the screen.
