A dedicated group of runners in Louisville pounded the pavement yesterday in the name of hunger relief. Hailing mostly from the Yum! Treasury team, members made an extraordinary 18-mile relay run to support World Hunger Relief Week.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, known as DARPA, offered 3.5 million in prize money to the robot building teams who could build the safest and most precise autonomous robotic land vehicles. The 60 mile course set in an urban environment, had 50 "traffic" vehicles driven by stunt drivers, four-way intersections, blocked roads, sections of unmarked pavement, and other robots simultaneously running. The robots were also required to obey all the traffic laws of the State of California.
35 teams arrived to the qualifying event just prior to the Urban Challenge. There were 20 slots allotted to start in the Urban Challenge, but that was not the number to qualify. By the middle of the first mission of three, as vehicles began to drop from the running, there were rising doubts that any 'bot would finish.
Randy brought us over to his his Amish friends so Bill could reshoe Blackie. We had been looking for Drill Tech/ Borium for quite some time, and the shoes Blackie had on needed to be replaced. Without Borium the shoes will not have the grip needed on pavement or concrete. In this video Bill removed the old shoes and prepares the hoofs.
This tutorial shows you how to "pass through a wall".. A really neat editing trick.
Difficulty: 3 out of 5
(It's easy to do, but Tough to make it look good.)
Editing Requirements: Crossfade, (keyframing in some cases)
--Start at one location and move the camera up to the wall as smooth as possible.
--Film various objects that may look like the inside of a wall (brick, pavement, etc.)
--Film in the second location (anywhere) and move the camera at the same speed as when you first went into the wall.
--Take your brick, pavement, etc clips and keyframe it so that it looks like you are moving toward it.
--Take all your clips and apply crossfades between all of them, letting your brick/pavement clip play for only about 1 second each.

12. La Figlia che Piange
O quam te memorem virgo…
STAND on the highest pavement of the stair—
Lean on a garden urn—
Weave, weave the sunlight in your hair—
Clasp your flowers to you with a pained surprise—
Fling them to the ground and turn 5
With a fugitive resentment in your eyes:
But weave, weave the sunlight in your hair.
So I would have had him leave,
So I would have had her stand and grieve,
So he would have left 10
As the soul leaves the body torn and bruised,
As the mind deserts the body it has used.
I should find
Some way incomparably light and deft,
Some way we both should understand, 15
Simple and faithless as a smile and shake of the hand.
She turned away, but with the autumn weather
Compelled my imagination many days,
Many days and many hours:
Her hair over her arms and her arms full of flowers. 20
And I wonder how they should have been together!
I should have lost a gesture and a pose.
Sometimes these cogitations still amaze
The troubled midnight and the noon’s repose.
Going down a huge snake run I fell over a wall and then my wheel fell off. I was doing at least 30MPH! That could have been a lot worse! Imagine going 30 MPH in a car then jumping onto the pavement like a slip and slide (OUCH)!

BMW got the resurrection of the Mini right. Being a third larger than the original, this thoroughly modern Mini could hardly be a slavish copy of that Issigonis-designed vehicle in which everyone from rock stars to the Royal Family (all behind darkened windows) darted about London in the swinging '60s of the century past. Nonetheless, designer Frank Stephenson caught the sassy, can-do attitude of the first Mini and made the new one a striking statement in style when it was introduced in 2002 as well as an e-ticket carnival ride. Not to mention a serious vehicle that can tote more than seems likely, can dry out wet pavement with its excellent handling and can stimulate more smiles than a precocious three-year-old at a grown-up party.

Critics and consumers alike have praised the Volvo XC90, and the vehicle is quite popular with upper-middle class families looking for an alternative to the traditionally clunky SUV. About the size of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but decidedly more stylish and designed for travel on, rather than off, the pavement, the 2005 Volvo XC90 will nonetheless traverse medium difficulty terrain when coaxed. Opt for the more powerful engine and the XC90 runs fine; standard models may struggle when loaded with people and cargo. We recommend a look at the XC90 if this kind of vehicle suits your needs.

hello pavement while skateboarding goodbye pavement
The Carolift 40 hoist arm from Autoadapt is bendable both ways, providing an almost endless variety of positions for loading the wheelchair. This way the wheelchair is able to pass through narrow door openings, bypass wide bumpers or be picked up from the pavement beside the vehicle.
Carolift 6000 and 6900 from Autoadapt is a wheelchair hoist designed to fit even in vehicles with a sloping or narrow rear door. The hoist arm of Carolift 6000-6900 has an off-set design (like two elbows) which enables loading from the side of the vehicle. This means you can keep the wheelchair placed on the pavement, not needing to descend to street level.
