Researchers develop car for a goldfish to drive




WE know goldfish are skilled at some things, but always thought it was limited to swimming, eating and hiding in underwater castles. However it now seems they can also be surprisingly good drivers.

A team of tech wizards at Studio Diip, which specialises in innovative image-recognition projects, have kitted up a goldfish tank with a camera and computer vision software, turning it into a robot car for their finned friends.
As the goldfish swims around in the tank, the system detects which way he’s heading and directs the car there, essentially allowing the fish to control the vehicle. “By swimming towards an interesting object, the fish can explore the world beyond the limits of his tank,” Studio Diip says.

AZ Bill Would Make It A Crime To Use A Bathroom Without Proof Of Citizenship

An Arizona republican, Carl Seel, recently introduced legislation that would make it a crime for a ‘person in the state illegally’ to use any public resource or facility. This would include sidewalks, roads, parks and yes, even public restrooms.

House Bill 2192 would make a crime to do anything, without proof of citizenship.
The 22 lines Seel wrote as part of AZ House Bill 2192 (2014) would allow the state to charge any person found to be ‘unlawfully using public resources,’ with a misdemeanor crime, for a first offense. A second offense would result in felony charges. The bill would also allow the state to seize cars found to be driven on a public road, by a person deemed to be ’not lawfully present’ in the state of AZ.

But why stop there? Seel’s proposed legislation would throw out those pesky little rights of the accused, namely, the right to present a defense. Seel’s addition to HB 2192 reads:

“Any record that relates to the immigration status or illegal presence of a person in this state is admissible in any court without further foundation or testimony from a custodian of records if the record is certified as authentic by the government agency that is responsible for maintaining the record.”

Anytime I hear a person call themselves a Republican, I know for a fact that they're about to be an asshole.

Looook into my eyes!
