Iraq vet gets bionic arm

Iraq war veteran Sgt. Juan Arredondo can grasp tennis balls and door knobs with his left hand again, now that he’s been outfitted with a bionic hand that has flexible fingers.

The 27-year-old former soldier, who lost his left hand in 2005 during a patrol, is one of the first recipients of the i-LIMB.

“To have this movement, it’s – it’s amazing,” Arredondo said Monday as he showed off the limb made by Scotland-based Touch Bionics. “It just gets me more excited about now, about the future.”

Five individual motors power the fingers, allowing the person to grasp round objects. The hand’s gestures are made possible through electrode plates that detect electrical signals generated in the remaining muscles in the amputated limb.

The i-LIMB can be covered with flexible material to mimic the look of human skin, called cosmesis.

Arredondo, of San Antonio, likened the limb to the bionics in “Star Wars” and “Terminator.””My son, he goes nuts about it,” he said. source

Kerry remarks fail global credibility test

images1.jpgThe man who received the 2nd most votes for President in the history of the Republic accused President Bush today of trying to scare Americans about al Qaeda.

Fresh from his now famous assertion that the bloodbath in southeast Asia “didn’t happen” after the fall of Saigon, John Kerry is again trying to fit his foot into his mouth.

In his reaction to President Bush’s speech at Charleston AFB, Kerry said “Bush is trying to scare Americans into believing his rationale for continuing the war in Iraq.” source

Unless Kerry needs produce some evidence to back up his irresponsible and potentially dangerous claims.  Failing that, he needs to STFU.
