car cycle bridge

car cycle bridge

Cyclists were stunned to see a motorist driving his car on a narrow cycle bridge over a railway line. They heard the GBP 2 million bridge "creaking and cracking" as the Jaguar driver squeezed onto the famous covered bike bridge in Cambridge city centre. The man, who was in his late 50s, eventually realised his mistake and reversed all the way back down the bridge at the north end of Cambridge station. Cyclist Ruth Platt, 43, did a double-take when she spotted the driver on the way home from her yoga class. She cycled past him, then went back and asked him if he knew what he was doing. "A lot of cyclists were giving him a really hard time, but he kept saying he was really sorry and had made a terrible mistake," said Mrs Platt, who photographed the car.

If you think undecided voters had trouble making up their minds in the last election, that's nothing compared to the choices facing attendees to the January 21 Inaugural Balls in Washington, DC. That's because the little old watchmakers at ObamaWatches.com have been busy since 2008 selling over 30 different versions of Obama for President and Obama Inaugural watches. In 2008, the most popular Obama watch was "Love Your Mama. Vote Obama." In the recent 2012 campaign, "Barack Around the Clock" was the runaway best seller. The watch features the President with a Mona Lisa-like grin, sporting oversized sunglasses. During the campaign, original "Barack Around the Clock" watches sold out so often, ObamaWatches.com produced it in two other colors to keep up with the demand. Obama Watches reports that most of their pre-Inaugural sales have been that watch, too. Does this mean the company should scuttle plans to release the 2013 Inaugural Watch? Not according to company officials. "While many of our customers tell us they're buying "Barack Around the Clock" watches to wear to Inaugural Balls, we haven't started selling the new Inaugural watch yet," said Jack Goldenberg, President, Einstein da Vinci & Goldenberg, the parent company of Obama Watches. "We traditionally put them online a week before the Inauguration." Here is an advance look at the new 2013 Obama Inaugural Watch while it was still on the drawing board, even before the hour and minute hands were applied.

This image from the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows the patch of rock cleaned by the first use of the rover's Dust Removal Tool (DRT).

The tool is a motorized, wire-bristle brush on the turret at the end of the rover's arm. Its first use was on the 150th Martian day, or sol, of the mission (Jan. 6, 2013). MAHLI took this image from a distance of about 10 inches (25 centimeters) after the brushing was completed on this rock target called "Ekwir_1." The patch of the rock from which dust has been brushed away is about 1.85 inches by 2.44 inches (47 millimeters by 62 millimeters). The scale bar at bottom right is 1 centimeter (0.39 inch).
