Anyone who’s seen the Terminator movie franchise has got to be at least a little scared of the idea of robots taking over the world. Of course, these fears are easily dismissed by the fact that the field of robotics is still pretty primitive in many ways.
Then again, that isn’t stopping companies like the Google-owned Boston Dynamics from experimenting with robots.
The Atlas is one of Boston Dynamics’ most sophisticated creations and is capable of traversing a variety of different terrains. As impressive as that sounds, imagine encountering this thing while out for a nice stroll in the forest…
Life gets scary at times because normal, everyday situations can turn deadly at the blink of an eye. That’s why this mom and her children are lucky to be alive today.
Anne Monoky Goldman was taking a walk through New York’s Central Park with her three sons on August 15 when out of nowhere, a huge elm tree started falling right above them. It could have very easily killed the small boys and baby, but because of their mom’s amazingly fast reaction, they all survived.
When Goldman saw the tree crashing down, she used her body to shield her two-year-old and four-year-old, who were sitting in a double stroller, and the baby strapped to her chest.

Seeing Buddy cuddle and play, you’d think that he’s always been the happiest dog in the world. In reality, his life has been filled with homelessness, surgery, and now, cancer.
Six-year-old Buddy was living on the streets of Romania when he was picked up by the rescue organization Howl of a Dog. While veterinarians at the non-profit were checking him over, they realized that he had a tumor on his spleen. Immediately, he was rushed into surgery.
Surgery went well, but unfortunately, a biopsy of the tumor revealed more bad news: Buddy had cancer. Since it was detected early, vets are hopeful that he’ll be able to live for several more years. The only problem now? Trying to find a forever home for a dog with medical issues.
Despite his many hardships, Buddy is loving, gentle, and happy. These days, there’s nothing he wants more than hugs from the kind humans who rescued him.
If I was able to, I would adopt Buddy immediately! The medical expenses would be tough to handle, but his love and affection would make every last bill worth it.
If you or someone you know would like to give Buddy a forever home, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The organization does have ways to facilitate international adoptions. You can also make a donation to their cause by clicking here.
Where did the moon come from, and how did it get there? The prevailing view is that a planet named Theia entered out solar system and banged into our planet with sufficient force to push some of the molten material from our planet into orbit. Over time, that material coalesced to form the moon. Now, new research from geophysical scientist Junjun Zhang and colleagues, suggests that such thinking might be wrong. In their paper published in Nature Geoscience, they find that in comparing titanium isotopes from both the moon and the Earth, that the match is too close to support the theory that the moon could have been made partly of material from another planet.
And that is your daily minimum requirement of titanium isotope news.
Army Specialist Chris Adams went to a lot of trouble to make it home in time for his 22nd birthday. Stationed in Afghanistan for ten months, Adams hatched an elaborate plan to surprise his mother, father, and girlfriend when he found out he’d be returning home to Groveland, Massachusetts, just in time for the big day.
Working as a firefighter before his deployment, Adams got his old work buddies to tell his mother that there was a gas leak at her house. Once she was outside and police and fire trucks began arriving with sirens blaring, she was overcome with shock and joy at the sight of her darling son getting out of one of the trucks.
I don’t know about you, but I just love watching videos of soldier homecomings.
