Woman hit by car while crossing Memorial Drive has died

State Police report Molly Doub, 31, of Cambridge, died of injuries from a crash on Sunday near the Micro Center.

Doub, a math teacher at the International School of Boston in Cambridge, was crossing the highway when hit around 5:15 p.m. by a car heading west, driven by a Boston man. State Police say investigators are still looking at whether any charges are warranted.

In a Facebook post, Doub's brother, Mike, writes:

molly lived in pursuit of knowledge. she was in school for most of her life and was excited to start taking classes again this summer at harvard (her first was going to be on james joyce, which was classic, over-ambitious molly). molly took on her other passions with the same verve. she was a fitness enthusiast (yoga of all varieties, half- and full- marathons), an avid reader and a great cook. she traveled all over the country and all over the world. in every way, molly was always pushing to learn more and be better.

Spawn of a Dalek and a vibrator now patrols the Pru

Neil the roving UHub photographer couldn't rove much past Mr. Roboto here yesterday. He dug up the background on Tobor:

Allied Universal, a leading facility services company and the largest security force in North America, has partnered with Boston Properties, to pilot a robot patrol program at the Prudential Center from May to August 2017. Technically called an Autonomous Data Machine, the Knightscope K5 model security robot will support the Prudential Center’s existing security team with a patrol route over the next three months. Prudential Center will be one of the first in Boston to introduce this sophisticated technology to enhance its current security program. The security robot is scheduled to start patrols within the Prudential Center retail area only on Tuesday, May 16.
