Sarah Connor saw it coming: Boston Dynamics has been busy working on an entrant for DARPA's Virtual Robotics Challenge, a contest aimed to create robots that can help in disaster situations.

The good folks at Cajun Safety and Survival are offering a brand new but out of the box Zoll AED Plus defibrillator complete with alarmed and strobed cabinet, priced at $2,000 ($1,700 for the unit and $300 for the cabinet.) With the cabinet, this would be an ideal AED to donate to your local church or private school. They have promised to donate 15% of the purchase price to the Memsahib Memorial Fund, benefiting the Anchor of Hope mission school in Zambia. There are no requirements to owning this unit other than having the money to buy it.

Micah Wood of C.R.O.S.S. Ministries wrote to mention the movie "Attack on Darfur." Micah's summary: "You can mostly fast forward till about 40+ minutes in (the first 40 minutes has lots of swearing and violence and too much of setting the stage of journalists being ushered around by African Union (AU) people who have a mandate to not intervene), but then a 'convicted' journalist demands a gun from the AU observer to go back and help defend a village that they just left, knowing that it would be attacked by the Janjaweed. It has an interesting outcome. (I don't want to ruin it for you.)"
