    Humans have figured out lots of ways to shape metal -- casting it with a mold, stamping it, drilling holes and milling surfaces in a machine shop, even zapping it with a laser. Well, now you can add a new method: 3D printing. A number of companies offer metal 3D printing, which creates products and components layer by layer with a computer-controlled system tracing its lineage to ordinary inkjet printers. But on Monday, printing giant HP announced it's entered the market with the ambition to dramatically lower prices, courtesy of a $400,000 product called the Metal Jet. "We're really going...

    An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University went on a profanity-laced Twitter rant against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing a sexual assault as a teen. Dr. Carol Christine Fair is an associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown, according to the school’s website. Fair referred to “Kreepy Kavanaugh” as a “perjurer” and a “rapist” on her verified Twitter account, adding that “nothing has changed since Anita Hill.” Fair also said the “GOP doesn’t care about women. We knew this. F--- them.” In another tweet about Kavanaugh, Fair referred to the GOP as “pro-rape,...

    "Hell no, I don't agree with that" Ryan Bundy Responds To "Rape For Rape" Content Placed on His "Ryan Bundy For Governor" Website By Web Designer Of Site Cardiff Gerhardt When someone runs as a "third party" like Ryan Bundy is for Governor of Nevada as an Independent, one can expect the established political machines to either spy on the campaign or actively try to cause damage if the third candidate poses a serious threat.

    There's no better way to practice than going to South Korea. But this might very well change, as teams are already trying to recreate the Korean boot camp experience. The 2018 World Championship is coming! With that, many Western teams have already taken the first customary step to prepare for the event. Of course, I’m talking about the Korean boot camp. The boot camp practice is widespread, and competitive powerhouses like TSM, Fnatic, Immortals, G2 Esports have all spoken out on how much better it is to train in South Korea compared to their home regions. For one, Korea has...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised that "this year's efforts to ensure the proper election outcome will be more successful than our 2016 intervention." "In 2016 our security safeguards didn't prevent all nonconforming content from reaching voters." Zuckerburg admitted. "Some anti-Clinton messages weren't detected and blocked. Likewise, some pro-Trump messages still managed to get through. In the intervening two years we have tightened our measures. I am highly confident that we will have the maximum possible positive influence in determining who wins." As an example of the "tightened measures" Zuckerberg pointed out that "we have banned the #WalkAway movement that seeks...

    Google, owned by the same parent company as YouTube, is arguably the most influential social media company in the world, with a power to affect the public dialogue across the globe in ways unimaginable just a handful of years ago. The question is now being asked: Is Google flexing its muscles to do just that? Conservatives have pointed to mounting evidence that Google is waging war on them. They’ll cite everything from YouTube banishing conservatives for espousing their beliefs, to Google partnering with left-wing organizations to disparage conservative thought itself. All along, Google has issued bizarre, barely understandable statements denying...

    A video posted to right-wing media site Breitbart showed Google executives bemoaning the election of President Trump at a company meeting in 2016. Wednesday’s release of the leaked video is the latest volley in an expanding campaign by Republicans and allies in the media to demonstrate that Google and other Silicon Valley firms are biased against conservatives. Last week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he will meet with Republican state attorneys general this month to discuss whether social media companies are stifling conservative voices. Google has come under increased scrutiny in recent weeks since Trump accused the company of...

    Powerline ^ | 12 Sep 2018 | John Hinderaker
    Someone leaked to Breitbart an hour-long video of an “all hands” Google meeting that was held just after the 2016 election. The video features Google’s co-founder, Sergei Brin, its CEO, Sundar Pichai, and numerous other high-ranking “Googlers” speaking in turn about the election’s tragic outcome. It is stunning. All of the speakers express grief over Donald Trump’s election. All of the speakers assume that every Google employee is a Democrat and is stunned and horrified that Hillary Clinton–the worst and most corrupt presidential candidate in modern history–lost. There is much discussion about what Google can do to reverse the benighted...

    We live in very interesting times ladies and gents, and today there were 2 major news-related events, which made my skin crawl. And I am very serious about this, because both “happenings” are going to influence our lives in a significant way for the years to come. If nothing changes, the ‘interwebz’ as we know it will never be the same. And we’ll all be forced to go on the dark side of the web, where there are cookies and malware. First, it was that neo-communist structure, also known as the European Parliament, passing what has been mildly described as...
  • ‘Catastrophic’: EU Passes Copyright Directive Including Internet ‘Link Tax’ and ‘Upload Filter’

    09/12/2018 2:38:01 PM PDT · by PFW · 32 replies
    The European Parliment has passed a controversial copyright directive that contains provisions which force tech giants to install content filters and sets in place a potential tax on hyperlinking. The bill was passed in a final vote of 438 – 226 and will need to be implemented by individual EU member states. Critics of the directive have been laser-focused on two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13, which they have dubbed the “link tax” and “upload filter.” "The most important parts of this are Articles 11 and 13. Article 11 is intended to give publishers and papers a way to...

    When you watch the news about these storms, they always hype it up such that you'd think everyone in the hemisphere has five minutes to live. I don't want to minimize the severity of the storm, but I like to have a better perspective on how bad it actually is. To accomplish this, I avoid the news and use the snapchat app. After opening the app, you can "squeeze" the screen by putting two fingers near opposing edges of the screen and pull them together to make a map appear. (Sometimes I get a search screen instead, so I close...

    Robert Mueller and his staff may be covering up the biggest act of espionage in the United States since the acquisition of atomic secrets by the Russians at the start of the Cold War. Mueller is supposed to be investigating what the Russian hackers called "Fancy Bear" did during the 2016 election. However, he continues to ignore an Associated Press expose indicating Fancy Bear focused on non-partisan email users including defense industry employees and those in the intelligence community. According to the AP, Department of Justice employees were aware of what Fancy Bear was doing, but didn't warn those whose...
