Sign up to the Daily Brief for news, explainers, how-tos, opinion and more.More than 140 offenders were housed in hotels and B&Bs after being released from prison during lockdown in a “last resort” by the government. The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) said the decision to move freed inmates into hotels was made in a bid to prevent offenders becoming homeless and to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19.Of the 304 prisoners who were due for release and provided with accommodation, 136 were housed in hotels or B&Bs after all other options were exhausted, the MoJ said.Meanwhile, of the 172 offenders released under the End of Custody Temporary Release scheme – in which prisoners who are within two months of their release date are temporarily released from custody – six were housed in hotels.An MoJ spokesman said: “All offenders due for release are thoroughly risk-assessed and hotels have only been used as a last resort to reduce any potential spread of coronavirus.“These temporary measures are part of the unprecedented response to the pandemic which has helped protect the NHS and save lives.”The MoJ has been using hotels as part of its Conditional Release Date accommodation (CRD) scheme which launched in May and will run until the end of this month.The ministry said the scheme also helped former prisoners with their long-term resettlement and rehabilitation.It comes after a survey by NHS England found that inmates at the closed category women’s jails HMP Send and HMP Downview in Surrey felt their physical and mental health had “deteriorated” due to lockdown restrictions.Chief inspector of prisons Peter Clarke said: “The suspension of visits has had a particularly acute impact in the women’s estate; many prisoners in Send and Downview had not seen their children for over three months.“Video calling provision had only recently been rolled out in both sites, which women appreciated.” Related...

(Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) Electric field modulation of the graphene-adsorbate interaction induces unique van der Waals (vdW) bonding which were previously assumed to be randomized by thermal energy after the electric field is turned off. We show that the vdW bonding lasts for hours after turning-off the electric field, exhibiting a charge-transfer and carrier scattering memory useful for 'beyond sensing' applications in molecular identification, memory devices and conformational switches.

Let’s face it, robots are cool. They’re also going to run the world some day, and hopefully, at that time they will take pity on their poor soft fleshy creators (a.k.a. robotics developers) and help us build a space utopia filled with plenty. I’m joking of course, but only sort of. In my ambition to have some small influence over the matter, I took a course in autonomous robot control theory last year, which culminated in my building a Python-based robotic simulator that allowed me to practice control theory on a simple, mobile, programmable robot. In this article, I’m going to show how to… This story continues at The Next Web

It only takes a few weeks of living in a busy city where the streets and pavements are crammed with tourists to appreciate the genius behind Yosef Lerner’s Pedestrian Horn invention.It makes the most useful feature of a car – its blaring horn – available to those who prefer to walk.The Pedestrian Horn is worn around the neck with a seatbelt strap so that the steering wheel – which appears to have been lifted from a swanky Cadillac – hangs at the perfect height to make the horn button readily and easily accessible.Lerner demonstrates the extreme usefulness of his creation in a video shot in and around New York where, not surprisingly, it’s just as effective at grabbing the attention of drivers as it is at startling selfie-snapping tourists.Why do people feel the need to frame their photos in the middle of a busy pavement when visiting a different city?Lerner has listed the Pedestrian Horn as being available for sale – in a limited run of 10 horns – on his personal website for $699 (£544), which sounds a little expensive until you find yourself trying to fight your way past a group of people who’ve decided to catch up on the past 30 years of their lives at a busy intersection.
