1888 Press Release - Frank C. Girardot Jr.'s popular book, "Name Dropper: Investigating the Clark Rockefeller Mystery," has been updated in ebook form to include exclusive, jailhouse interviews with Rockefeller himself. Girardot's story sheds light on the grisly evidence that led to Rockefeller's arrest and conviction for the 1985 murder of San Marino, CA resident John Sohus.
Abstract This paper describes the architecture and implementation of a distributed autonomous gardening system with applications in urban/indoor precision agriculture. The garden is a mesh network of robots and plants. The gardening robots are mobile manipulators with an eye-in-hand camera. They are capable of locating plants in the garden, watering them, and locating and grasping fruit. The plants are potted cherry tomatoes enhanced with sensors and computation to monitor their well-being (e.g. soil humidity, state of fruits) and with networking to communicate servicing requests to the robots. By embedding sensing, computation and communication into the pots, task allocation in the system is de-centrally coordinated, which makes the system scalable and robust against the failure of a centralized agent. We describe the architecture of this system and present experimental results for navigation, object recognition and manipulation as well as challenges that This work was done at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Computer Science and Artiﬁcial Intelligence Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02478, USA.

In this lesson, students will compare and contrast the needs of indoor and outdoor plants. They will take on responsibility for raising three different types of plants indoors and learn their specific needs. They will chart all steps in the plants’ life cycles and make observations on their growth. Students will also conduct a survey and use the results to make a chart. OBJECTIVES Students will: 1. Categorize survey findings and present their results using a chart. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Language for Information and Understanding, Elementary 1 and Elementary 2) 2. Predict and observe stages in plant growth, in chronological order. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Language for Information and Understanding, Elementary 2 and Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design, Elementary 5) 3. Use a calendar and a seed packet to calculate and determine harvest dates for plants. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Language for Information and Understanding, Elementary 2 and NYS Learning Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design, Elementary 2) 4. Demonstrate understanding of vocabulary related to plant growth and companion planting by constructing both simple and complex sentences. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Communication Skills, Checkpoint A and B) 5. Investigate differences between indoor and outdoor plants, concerning their needs and how they satisfy them. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design, Elementary 1 - Scientific Inquiry) 6. Explore rates of plant growth using simple measurement methods, and interpret the data in order to recognize simple patterns or sequences. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design, Elementary 2 and 3 - Scientific Inquiry) 7. Construct an indoor salad garden using familiar materials. (NYS Learning Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design, Elementary 1 - Engineering Design and Standard 5: Technology, Elementary 2) 8. Recognize the differences between indoor and outdoor plants, the interactions between plants, and different growth structures and interactions. (NYS Learning Standard 4: Science, Elementary
