Summary

    The robot was harmless, in fact couldn't be moved in any way whatever- till a newsman stuck his nose in where it didn't belong!

    Hiram Gilmore "Harry" Bates III (October 9, 1900 – September 1981), born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was an American science fiction editor and writer. He began working for William Clayton in the 1920s as the editor of adventure pulp magazines and Astounding Science Fiction was the result. 

    His short story "Farewell to the Master", first published in the October, 1940 was the basis of the well known science fiction movie The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) because it illustrated the fear and suspicion that characterized the early Cold War and Atomic Age.

    She took her own temperature. With the fancy thermometer that beeped. It was not normal. It was not 98.6. Judy's temperature was 188.8! Judy's temperature was 00.0! Judy's temperature was beep-beep-beep-beep-beep. She, Judy Moody, had the temperature of an outer-space alien! 
     
    Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now, she, Judy Moody, is in a medical mood! It's no secret that Judy wants to be like Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor, when she grows up. So when Class 3T starts to study the Amazing Human Body, Judy can hardly wait to begin her better-than-best-ever third-grade projects: show-and-tell with something way rarer than a scab, a real-live ooey-gooey operation, and a cloning experiment that may create double trouble for Judy and her friends. RARE!
