General second order differential equation:

With independent variable t and unknown function y(t), our general form is

If this is nonlinear, there is no single general method of solving; however, there are two special sub-cases that allow reduction to first order equations (which in turn may or may not be solvable).

As indicated in this article, a team at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology is developing a powered robot suit for use by agricultural workers. From the article:
"The new power assist robot suit was specifically designed to multiply the productivity of workers using it, while minimizing the strain on their waist, hips, and arms. The suit includes 8 motors on its rigid ABS resin frame structure and weighs 18 kg (just under 40 pounds), yet carries most of its own weight and places a minimum load on the operator."
They expect the suit to be in use by 2012. This is very cool.

There's been some buzz about this Enova™ oil, a brand of "diacylglycerol oil", an oil blend with more than 80% diacylglycerol lipids. However, one can easily find that "diacylglycerol" is the more technical name for what have traditionally been called diglycerides, commonly used as a food additive (along with monoglycerides), usually serving as an emulsifier. Amazing how new names and fancy terminology can make a "new" popular product from something used for quite some time already.
