Hitchhiking robot to journey across Canada this summer
Toronto Star
With pool noodle arms, a plastic bucket for a torso and a limitless wealth of retrievable knowledge — at least while in 3G network range — a curious entity is getting ready to put out the thumb and bum rides across Canada this summer. It's HitchBOT, the genderless hitchhiking robot that will rely on the kindness of flesh-and-blood strangers to safely complete a 4,480-kilometre odyssey that starts in Halifax on July 27 and is supposed to wind up at an art gallery in Victoria.

Nanowerk News
Lung cancer causes more deaths in the U.S. than the next three most common cancers combined (colon, breast, and pancreatic). The reason for the striking mortality rate is simple: poor detection.
