mind-controlled robo suit allows man to walk again

A robotic suit controlled by the human mind has allowed a man to walk and move his arms for the first time in two years. It was worn by a 28-year-old French man called Thibault. Four years ago, he was injured in a fall, which left him unable to move his body below the shoulders. Thibault said his first steps in the suit “felt like the first man on the Moon”. This is the first time signals from the brain have been used to control a robot suit in this way. What is the robot suit? Since 2017, Thibault has worked with scientists from the Grenoble Alpes University Hospital in France to create a robotic suit that he can control with his thoughts. The suit is a type of exoskeleton, which means…

reading your mind

Earlier this year, scientists proved that they could predict decisions people were about to make 11 seconds before they made them. A study carried out by the University of New South Wales in Australia put volunteers in a machine to monitor their brain signals. They were then given a choice between two patterns and had 20 seconds to press a button to make their decision. Scientists studied the activity in their brains and could say which pattern a person would pick before they made their choice.…

the duke and duchess of sussex accuse newspapers of illegal activities

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) have accused some of the country’s newspapers of publishing their private information without permission. The royal couple are threatening to take the newspapers to court. Markle claims that The Mail on Sunday newspaper unlawfully (illegally) published a private letter she sent to her father. The Mail on Sunday published the letter shortly after Markle married Prince Harry, in May 2018. Not only was the letter published without her permission, it is also said to have been altered. In a statement on 1 October, Prince Harry said that the newspaper had made some changes to the letter to “mask the lies” that it had written about Markle in the past. A spokesperson for The Mail on Sunday said, “We categorically deny…

international day of the girl

The International Day of the Girl is celebrated every year on 11 October. The event highlights the achievements of girls, and some of the serious challenges they face. It is organised by the United Nations (UN), an organisation of 193 countries that takes action on global issues. The theme for this year’s International Day of the Girl is “GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable”. Many girls face challenges like child marriage and not getting a proper education. More than 650 million women alive today were married before they were 18, and about 130 million girls are not in school. This is often because, in poorer parts of the world, families haven’t got enough money to send all their children to school, and will choose to send only their sons. Girls are often made…

eu rejects the pm’s brexit plan

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s current proposal for how the UK could leave the European Union (EU) with a deal has been rejected by EU leaders. The EU is an organisation of 28 European countries that work together and follow the same rules. The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 October so time is running out for the two sides to agree a deal. What’s the problem? It’s mostly due to something called the Irish backstop. This is a plan to keep the shared border between Northern Ireland and the Ireland open so that people and goods travel freely across it after Brexit (the name for when the UK leaves the EU). Both countries currently follow EU trading rules, but after Brexit, Northern Ireland should follow the same rules as…
