  • HOW DOES A 3D PRINTER WORK?

    07/30/2016 8:12:03 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 6 replies
    Community Magazine ^ | July 30, 2016
    3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a method of creating almost anything you can think of by using a computer-controlled printer. 3D printing takes digital files and transforms them into real, three-dimensional, solid products. With a 3D printer, you are able to design and manufacture everyday items such as shoes, jewelry, auto parts, medical equipment, homes, and even artificial organs right in your own home or office! The process begins with creating a virtual design of the object you want to make. This design is made in a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) file, using a 3D modeling program which...

    Chelsea Manning may face charges relating to a suicide attempt this year, which could lead to indefinite solitary confinement or transferral to a maximum-security facility, according to a civil rights group. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced on Thursday that Manning, who is serving a 35-year sentence in military custody for leaking state secrets to the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, was under investigation for three charges related to her 5 July suicide attempt: “resisting the force cell move team”, “prohibited property”, and “conduct which threatens”. Manning confirmed through her lawyers in July that she was receiving medical care after having...

    Sure seems like they're afraid. One of the most telling things about the last few days has been the severity of the collective left-wing freak-out. When Donald Trump made his comments about Russian hackers releasing Hillary’s now-destroyed “personal” correspondence, the reaction was swift, vitriolic, and way, way over the top. But why? If their candidate (who they claim is consistently honest and trustworthy) is telling the truth, the 30,000 messages would only serve to prove what she’s been claiming all along.

    3D Printing Industry ^ | July 28, 2016 | Nick Hall
    3D printed organ transplants have been in the cards for a while, but deep tissue printing has proved problematic. Now a team of scientists in Korea think they have cracked the code for producing functional liver tissue by printing functional mouse liver cells. Simply put, we need more livers than we currently have as hepatitis, cirrhosis and liver cancer are increasingly prevalent. The donor system, meanwhile, is inherently flawed. Patients face agonising treatment while they wait for a suitable liver. There is simply no guarantee they will get a matching organ in time and even if they do, there can...

    ABC News ^ | July 25, 2016 | Alana Abramson and Shushannah Walshe
    WikiLeaks leaked nearly 20,000 emails on Friday from top Democratic National Committee officials, exchanged from January 2015 through May 2016. Several emails released show that although the DNC was supposed to remain neutral during the primary contest, officials grew increasingly agitated with Bernie Sanders and his campaign, at some points even floating ideas about ways to undermine his candidacy. The source of the leak has not been revealed, though Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, said on ABC News' "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" on Sunday that he believes the Russians were instrumental in it. "Experts are telling us that...

    During an interview with NBC’s Richard Engel, Julian Assange said that “there is no proof whatsoever” that Russian intelligence sources are responsible for hacking thousands of Democratic National Committee emails. The emails were posted by WikiLeaks over the weekend. The FBI is investigating the hack. Three cybersecurity experts told the DNC that the emails were hacked by Russian intelligence. ‘There is no proof of that whatsoever. We have not disclosed our source, and of course, this is a diversion that’s being pushed by the Hillary Clinton campaign. That’s a meta-story. The real story is what these emails contain and they...

While Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook has suggested that Russia is behind the DNC email publication by WikiLeaks, Priebus told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Monday that he does not know "if we can definitively say who has them and who’s taken them." "But the point is, the Russians didn’t write the emails and neither did whoever else. The WikiLeaks people didn’t write the emails,"...

    NEW YORK — Redditors will get a chance to ask Donald Trump anything they want on Wednesday evening. The Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to host a Reddit AMA (short for Ask Me Anything) session starting at 6:30 p.m. ET, his campaign announced Monday. The questions and answers will be posted on “The_Donald” subreddit, which has over 180,000 subscribers, instead of “IAmA,” where most high-profile AMAs are hosted. (Hillary Clinton’s subreddit page has about 21,000 subscribers.) Moderators of The_Donald subreddit celebrated the news with a post that called the candidate “our God Emperor, the Nimble Navigator, Mr. Donald J. Trump!”(continued)

Just grab a cell phone and download Pokemon GO, then play to your heart’s content while you casually wander across the border. The worst that can happen under the Obama Administration is that they’ll call your mother, since they’re certainly not going to treat you differently because you adhere to radical Islam. That would be discriminatory. These two set the standard:

    DNC officials threatened to out Sanders as an atheist to hurt his candidacy in believer-rich Kentucky and West Virginia It turns out Bernie Sanders supporters were not paranoid. The Hillary Clinton machine, which dominates the Democratic National Committee, never had any intention of allowing a fair primary contest. The race was fixed. We already knew this but the treasure trove of 20,000 internal emails from within the DNC that were freshly document-dumped by Wikileaks shows just how determined the Clintonistas were to rig the primary process.

This is what journalistic integrity is in the twenty first century. This wasn’t just for bashing Donald Trump. CNN Tapper was given stories to bash Ted Cruz too. Why am I not surprise?

    3D printing technology allows users to easily replicate small items like paper clips, coat hangers and broken refrigerator door handles. Unfortunately, some creative criminals have taken advantage of the declining price of 3D printers to make the lives of law enforcement officers extremely difficult. Security company G4S has discovered criminals are using 3D printers to aid in stealing shipments of goods. In as little as 10 minutes, criminals can print replacement cargo seals, decoy security devices and replica locks and keys. After breaking into cargo containers, the criminals use the 3D-printed items to help cover their tracks. For law enforcement...

The problem of "cyberbullying" is certainly a very real problem - and a symptom of a larger cultural collapse in public schools. However, the problem of "cyberbullying" (and other forms of bullying) was largely created by the public schools through the evolutionist curriculum (read more about evolution here) and other factors.

    Hillary Clinton granted non-cleared people access to classified information, FBI Director James Comey testified Thursday. But he could not definitively confirm that those with access, in this particular instance, her attorneys, had actually read the classified material, and a spokesman for Clinton sharply contested the assertion. “Did Secretary Clinton's attorneys have the security clearances needed?” Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked Comey, who responded, “They did not.” Asked whether that concerned him, the FBI director said, “Oh yeah, sure.” But Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted, “To be clear, the lawyers who sorted through Clinton's emails had Top Secret-level clearance."

    FBI Director James Comey stood before the nation and issued a list of Hillary Clinton’s astounding wrongdoings Tuesday as regards America’s national security — and then said he was not recommending prosecution because, in essence, what Mrs. Clinton did was “extremely careless” but not criminal. As he spoke, I recalled F.

    Even as the FBI said Tuesday that it would not recommend charging Hillary Clinton for putting her work email on a private server when she was secretary of state, a federal court may have just opened the door to more scrutiny of the Democratic presidential candidate. The facts of the court ruling -- in the case of another government official -- have little to do with Clinton herself. But the decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit appears to hold significant implications for the presumptive Democratic nominee as she seeks to deflect attention away from her...

    Subterfuge A day later, I’m still trying to make sense of why James Comey would choose to do what he did yesterday. If you just don’t want to recommend charges against Hillary, the logical move would be to say as little as possible, talk about how the case doesn’t rise to the level of prosecution, and leave the stage. By talking at length about all the evidence that clearly shows Hillary was guilty of at least gross negligence in her handling of classified information – which is absolutely a criminal violation regardless of intent – he might as well have...

    Now galloping full-speed toward the White House, is Barack Obama’s third term. The only way out of the hell where Alinsky Twins Barry Soetoro and Hillary Clinton have abandoned America starts with Americans breaking out of the state of denial in which they’ve been living. There was never even a sliver of a chance that the law-breaking Hillary Clinton would be indicted for her flagrant email felonies. Once Obama stepped up to openly stump for her, Hillary Clinton would never be brought to justice. That should have been everyone’s first clue.

Not because anyone thinks she didn’t do it. The FBI director knows damn well she did it. He even said in the presser that her statements about a) never sending or receiving classified e-mails; and b) turning over all her work-related e-mails were clearly not true. He absolutely lambasted her lack of care for the security of classified e-mails, even up to and including the use of non-secure devices when overseas, when...

    Penn State researchers have used a custom 3D photolithographic process similar to stereolithography to 3D print micro-patterned anion exchange membranes. The membranes, patterned for improved performance, could be used in energy, water purification, desalination, and other applications. Although they might resemble small pieces of run-of-the-mill kitchen plastic wrap, ion exchange membranes play a vital role several different practical processes. The thin, flat polymer sheets can be used in fuel cells and batteries, while food processing, heavy metals removal, and water purification can also benefit from the membranes. While these polymer membranes have traditionally been made flat and smooth, scientists have...

    We picked up a Sony DSC RX100 and I was wondering what the techies on this board are using for video editing software. I do a solo musician thing and wanted to splice live clips together to create a montage of songs. I was thinking of the fade in, fade out thing. Also hoping for something free off the internet. Any help would be appreciated.

    Don't worry. There is nothing wrong here He came over and said hello. He talked about his grandchildren and his travels. He never brought up the Hillary investigation. Hey, everything Bill Clinton does is legal and above board. So when he just happens to show up on the tarmac where the private plane of the attorney general - who by the way is investigating his wife for possible felonies involving national security breaches - the fact that he just happened to board the plane and talk to her for more than half an hour shouldn’t raise an eyebrow for you...

    As president, Hillary Clinton would support the automatic granting of green cards, or permanent residency, to foreign students who earn advanced STEM degrees in the U.S. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, said she wants the U.S. to "staple" green cards to the diplomas of non-citizens who earn master's or Ph.D. degrees in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering or math) "from accredited institutions."(continued)

    The bootcamps promise 12-week immersive training programs, but critics say high job placement numbers may not be credible. Will federal loans help or undermine credibility and costs? To many students and career-changers hoping to gain programming skills and break into the lucrative tech world, coding bootcamps can seem like a promising option. Since 2012, such bootcamps have offered hands-on, intensive technical training in as little as 12 weeks, boasting job placements as high as 98 or 99 percent once students complete the program. But while advocates pitch them as an alternative to a traditional degree program, critics point to their...

    Why so shy, Bryan? I guess he really needed that immunity deal. I guess there must have been some hella lawbreaking going on in HillaryWorld. How else do you explain why a guy who’s already been told by a judge that he can’t take the Fifth just because he doesn’t feel like answering questions, but can only do so to legitimately protect himself against self-incrimination, nevertheless does so 125 times in a discovery deposition? That’s what Bryan Pagliano, who set up Hillary’s schlock, homebrew e-mail server in her home in Chappaqua, New York, did in a Wednesday deposition - which...

    Local Motors, the Arizona-based automaker that crowdsources vehicle design, has introduced a 3D-printed, autonomous, electric shuttle bus that is partially recyclable called Olli. Local Motors says that it's the first vehicle to use IBM Watson’s car-focused cognitive learning platform, Watson Internet of Things (IoT) for Automotive. It’s a boxy, far-out concept that may be the first of its kind, but that’s the point for a company that isn’t focused only on making vehicles — it’s about remaking the car manufacturing business. If all goes according to plan, Olli will be giving autonomous rides at the company’s introductory event on the...

    If you’ve been worried that there isn’t an easy enough way to help your kids understand the thorny issues of overt racism championed by presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Netflix — as it often does — has a show for you. The Emmy-winning Netflix original show “All Hail King Julien,” based on the popular DreamWorks movie-series “Madagascar,” debuts its third season Friday. And there’s an episode about Trump. Although the King Julien character was not originally intended to be a Trump parody in the “Madagascar” universe, the show’s creators decided the royal lemur could be a perfect teaching tool...

    Reddit has announced a change to its algorithm on /r/all, the page that is meant to rank the most popular posts trending across the site’s user-run communities. According to Reddit, the algorithm will be changed to promote more “diversity” on the subreddit. The change is an explicit response to the Islamic terrorist attacks in Orlando, Florida. In their aftermath, /r/all was dominated by posts from /r/The_Donald, the primary community for Trump supporters on the site. /r/all collects and ranks posts on Reddit according to how many “upvotes” they receive from users. A post typically requires several thousand upvotes to reach...
