Then of course, there will be fewer, if any wars at all and civil disturbances are less likely.This Bulldog ant that was brought over from Australia 33 years ago, was the inspiration for an 8 foot (2.4 meter) robot, estimated to be able to sprint at near 20mph. Then, 33 years later the specimen should look as good as the day it was preserved.About 33 years ago in late 1981, Max Askaroff, the son of a Russian migr, came home to Eastbourne from an extended tour of Australia, bringing with him a large tarantula, a scorpion and a bulldog ant (that is about 25mm long) in a jar.We are not sure if that was entirely in keeping with quarantine restrictions, but the specimens were dead on arrival in the UK anyway - and in a sealed glass jar.The Bulldog ant (also known as the jack or jumper ant) above came all the way from Australia to be given to an inventor in Eastbourne. The case above is proof of that theory and is part of a display at Herstmonceux (working) Museum in Sussex, kindly loaned to us for this article.Note the engraved brass plate with the Latin: Ponerinae Myrmecia inscribed below the common name for this animal.
Its chief historical origins as narrative, philosophical or didactic device are to be found in classical Greek and Indian literature, in particular in the ancient art of rhetoric.
The name comes from the fact that some ants are virtually unchanged since prehistoric times, hence: Dinosaur = Dino, and it is of course a giant robot = Bot.
Put together this gives us 'Dino Bot.' In the workshop we calling the prototype, affectionately: 'Dino,' after Fred Flintstones pet dinosaur.2015 - One day, low cost insectoid robots may replace soldiers on the ground for (trauma free) battlefields of the future, or peace keeping missions at volatile geographical regions.

But the ones most likely to be telling you the truth are the ones that admit that their dating algorithms are also powerful marketing tools. The notion became a wonderful marketing tool–red meat for the media. ’ Then you go meet her and most of the time you put your head in your hands because she was so ugly–and she was thinking the same about you.” (This was the pre-Internet era, mind you, when computers had 12K of memory.
People of type A are compatible with people of type B. They speak at online-dating conferences, describe their unique matching approaches, and promote their books. EHarmony has refused to reveal its algorithm, Finkel said, and therefore the company should not advertise a scientific approach to matching until it can show, publicly, that its system works according to the standards of scientific rigor. Finkel spoke with imploring volume and speed, as if an elaborate show of authority might convert the crowd to his cause. For nearly 50 years, ever since computers were first used to help college kids hook up, people assumed, or hoped, that the fact of technology as mediator would mean not just .
