Kindergarten poison

TWO girls have died in China after eating poisoned yoghurt placed outside their kindergarten by a man from a rival school. Police believe the poisoning was motivated by competition for pupils between the schools.

The girls' grandmother found the books and yoghurt and took them home. The children suffered convulsions after drinking the yoghurt and died later. Police detained the woman and the man.

Buzz over 'Robobee'

A WINGED robot the size of a housefly has taken its first controlled flight. Dubbed the "RoboBee", the tiny 80 milligram device has a pair of buzzing fly-like wings that flap 120 times a second. The robot, developed over 10 years, is the first working model of a flying insect.

Dr Sawyer Fuller, a member of the US team at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences said: "Flies perform some of the most amazing aerobatics in nature using only tiny brains. Their capabilities exceed what we can do with our robot, so we would like to understand their biology better and apply it to our own work."
