The city of Wuppertal in Germany's Rust Belt of old-era industrial towns has been chosen to test the driverless car of the future on regular city roads among pedestrians. Wuppertal is a far cry from California or Nevada, where Google has been putting its automated cars through their paces. The birthplace of Friedrich Engels, a father of Marxist political theory, and Friedrich Bayer, who founded the huge Bayer pharmaceuticals group, lies in what was once Germany's industrial heartland.

Having a mobile phone stolen is no reason to panic, say German experts who have put together a handy action list. But it's vital to act fast to secure phone numbers, addresses, personal notes and all other manner of intimate information and keep the upsetting surprises to a minimum.
Isaac Newton would never have hit upon his theory of gravitation if he had to constantly check his email inbox on a laptop. According to legend, Newton (1643-1727) was sitting relaxing when he saw an apple fall to the ground, asking himself what made it do so.

In Bridge, human vulnerability is a part of the defensive errors that help a declarer make an un-makeable contract. Just to induce that factor of human error to surface up, a good declarer offers the opportunity and the scope for the defenders to make that slip in defense, which could be of immense advantage for the declarer enabling him to bring home a contract that otherwise had little chance of success. One of the key gadgets in Bridge is the deceptive play `that is based on the human psychology, which would surely leave a trail that could well deceive the defenders into the web of human vulnerability to err.
