NEW YORK Women's Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Elemental Rose UK , July 14 (Xinhua) -- Oil prices continued to increaseon Friday as report showed global oil demand has picked up.

The International Energy Agency issued a strong outlook forglobal oil demand on Thursday, saying consumption in China, Germanyand the United States has increased in recent months.

Meanwhile, a weaker dollar also spurred market sentiment for thedollar-priced oil.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 19 (Xinhua) -- Inspired by natural organisms that cover distance by growing Nike Zoom Fly SP Breaking 2 Casual White UK , such as vines, fungi and nerve cells, mechanical engineers at Stanford University have created a new type of robot as a proof of concept.

The robot, which has been through some challenging tests, can grow across long distances without moving its whole body.

"Essentially, we're trying to understand the fundamentals of this new approach to getting mobility or movement out of a mechanism Men's Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Habanaro Red Black UK ," explained Allison Okamura, professor of mechanical engineering and senior author of a paper published Wednesday in journal Science Robotics. "It's very, very different from the way that animals or people get around the world."

The basic idea behind this robot is straightforward. It's a tube of soft material folded inside itself, like an inside-out sock, that grows in one direction when the material at the front of the tube everts, as the tube becomes right-side-out.

To investigate what their robot can do Men's Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Black White UK , the group created prototypes that move through various obstacles, travel toward a designated goal, and grow into a free-standing structure. And in the prototypes, the material was a thin, cheap plastic and the robot body everted when the researchers pumped pressurized air into the stationary end.

In testings, the research group tried to move the robot from one place to another in several ways. It grew through an obstacle course Men's Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 White Grey UK , where it traveled over flypaper, sticky glue and nails and up an ice wall to deliver a sensor. It completed the course even though it was punctured by the nails because the area that was punctured didn't continue to move and, as a result, self-sealed by staying on top of the nail.

A primary advantage of soft robots is that they can be safer than hard, rigid robots not only because they are soft but also because they are often lightweight. Another benefit, in the case of this robot Men's Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Olive Flak Black Orange UK , is that it is flexible and can follow complicated paths.

"The body lengthens as the material extends from the end but the rest of the body doesn't move," noted Elliot Hawkes, a visiting assistant professor from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and lead author of the paper. "The body can be stuck to the environment or jammed between rocks, but that doesn't stop the robot because the tip can continue to progress as new material is added to the end."

Some iterations of these robots included a control system that differentially inflated the body Men's Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 JP Black White UK , which made the robot turn right or left. The researchers developed a software system that based direction decisions on images coming in from a camera at the tip of the robot.

Joey Greer, a graduate student in the Okamura lab and co-author of the paper, was quoted as saying in a news release that controlling a robot requires a precise model of its motion, which is difficult to establish for a soft robot. "Also, using a camera to guide the robot to a target is a difficult problem because the camera imagery needs to be processed at the rate it is produced. A lot of work went into designing algorithms that both ran fast and produced results that were accurate enough for controlling the soft robot."

In the future, the researchers would like to create versions that may also grow using liquid Men's Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 JP Team Orange Black UK , which could help deliver water to people trapped in tight spaces or to put out fires in closed rooms, and possibly with new, tougher materials, like rip-stop nylon and Kevlar. In addition, they hope to scale the robot much larger and much smaller to see how it performs.

I recently found myself in a position where I needed Toyota touch up paint. When I came out of Walmart and saw a scratch on my new Toyota Camry I was pretty angry. I knew that the first scratch had to happen sooner or later, but seeing the scratch on my rear door made my heart sink. Fortunately I found an easy an inexpensive way to repair my car with Toyota touch up paint.

When I went to my local body shop to see if they could repair the scratch Men's Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 JP Casual Black Red UK , I was not surprised to find out that a professional repair would cost me around $450. Obviously, I did not want to pay for this out of my pocket. And of course, I could have put in an insurance claim, but then my premium would go up. That’s when I decided that I was going to have to fix the scratch myself with Toyota touch up paint.

I did my research online and found out that it is really not that hard to achieve professional results with Toyota touch up paint by fixing the paint scratch myself. The steps I learned are outlined below.

The first thing you need to do is to prepare the surface that needs to be repaired. All you need to do is clean the area with soap or some grease remover. Since my car is new I did not have to worry about repairing any rust or anything like that.

Experts recommend doing the painting with Toyota touch up paint in a low humidity location that is dry and not in any direct sunlight. I did it in my garage. It is also recommended that the temperature be at least 50 to 70 degrees.

Now you need to apply either some primer or some clear coat over the scratch. I just sprayed on a few very thin layers of clear coat. Th.
