Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and coward took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

The Raid 2 Sundance reviews:

"The Raid 2 is one of the best action films ever made. It might even be THE best. Holy f***ing s**t."

"To deal with THE RAID 2, the MPAA is gonna need something heavier than NC-17. And probably some adult diapers."

"Gareth Evans is the best action filmmaker working right now. Full stop. Bow."

"My everything hurts."

"THE RAID 2 is just fucking insane. Some of the best action sequences I’ve ever seen. And I don’t know how it gets an R. Wow. Just wow.”

Everyone just talks at each other. Or, in my case, I get a combination of moaned / screamed at. 

It really is quite depressing.
