    3Ders ^ | June 2, 2016
    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.

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...

    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...

    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...

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.

Now it looks like somebody broke it, destroying data collected since 2004.

One of the interesting things about Julian Assange is that, love him or hate him; he’s a guy who never seems to bluff. If he says something is coming, it usually does. The world may pounce on it, or choose to ignore it, but he almost always follows through on his threats/promises. So, if you’re Hillary Clinton, his recent ITV interview must be unnerving. In it, Assange promises that Wikileaks has more of Hillary’s emails ready to go, and that the new info would add to...

As people who have tried to get items removed from the world’s largest search engine already know, high-handed Google “is forever”. Unfortunately so too are the lies that social media is helping Hillary Rodham Clinton cover.

He wants four more years of Obama-but nobody else does!" "Trump's tweet was disrespectful to President Obama and to me," Hillary complained. "This is further proof that he lacks the temperament to be president. Those of us with experience in government know that there are certain things you just don't say in public.

Here’s a perfect case in point. The shamelessness of her lying has to do with the fact that she will say things so completely absurd that anyone who thinks about it for even a second will shake their head and ask, “Did she really just say that?” But Rule 1 of lying in ClintonWorld...

    An analyst at Global Equities Research by the name of Trip Chowdhry has publicly commented that he considers the market value of the Tesla/Panasonic Gigafactory to be $50 billion, according to recent reports. Considering that the projected development costs of the Gigafactory total “only” $5 billion, and also that Tesla’s current market capitalization is around $32 billion, that figure is quite a notable one. Whether one agrees or not, it’s a number that gets one’s attention….

(Conclusion first here) Truven Health Analytics™ and Mercer teamed to investigate whether there is a correlation between CEO compensation and hospital performance on a balanced scorecard. The study showed there is a strong alignment for the highest level of performance. However, the study also found that 80% of hospitals do not perform well on a balanced scorecard.

Her offense was posting a video news report she created for Gatestone that discussed an almost 1,500% increase in rapes in Sweden.

"Okay, she made a mistake and some laws may have been broken, but there's no proof that the way she handled her email has hurt anyone," Albright contended. "It's time for the persecution of this great American to end." The possibility that Hillary's unsecured emails containing classified material might have been hacked and, thereby, exposed covert operatives to potentially fatal risk was brushed aside.

    There are many factors that will play into the ultimate shift of 3D printing as a technology for rapid prototyping to one of end-part manufacturing, but the one area of additive manufacturing (AM) that may stand in the way of mass adoption of 3D printing within the larger manufacturing supply chain is that of metal AM. Metal AM has the ability to produce intricate, streamlined components with physical properties that can sometimes exceed those of parts manufactured by traditional means. Consequently, the technology has the potential to completely shift the way that we fabricate critical components. With it, we can...

The aide, Justin Cooper, served the Clinton Foundation while working for a private consulting firm, Teneo Holdings and Decision Sciences Corp., that served foreign dictators, Morris told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "He has no security clearance — and he had access to every single email either sent by or received by the secretary of state of the United States for four years," Morris...

    Nowhere left to hide. It’s not news to you or to me that Hillary is a shameless liar, nor is it any shocking revelation that she’s fairly bad at it. It’s always obvious when she’s lying - yes, I know, her lips are moving - because she doesn’t know how to appear sincere, she doesn’t cover her tracks very well and she easily gets flustered whenever someone doesn’t just accept her nonsense at face value. But it’s one thing for you and me to know Hillary is a liar. We’ve been there for decades. It’s another thing entirely when the...

    Israeli 3D printer firm Nano Dimension has successfully lab-tested a 3D bioprinter for stem cells, paving the way for the potential printing of large tissues and organs, the company said on Wednesday. While 3D printers are used already to create stem cells for research, Nano Dimension said the trial, conducted with Israeli biotech firm Accellta Ltd, showed its adapted printer could make large volumes of high resolution cells quickly....
  • Ex-CEO of McDonald’s: $15 Minimum Wage ‘To Cause Job Loss … Like You’re Not Going to Believe’

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | May 24, 2016 | Jerome Hudson
    Former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi appeared on Fox Business Network and warned progressive groups against $15 per hour minimum-wage hikes. “I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry — it’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient [while] making $15 an hour bagging French fries,” Rensi said Tuesday. “It’s nonsense and it’s very destructive and it’s inflationary and it’s going to cause a job loss across this country like you’re not going to believe,” Rensi added....

    Busted. At this point, the Hillary Clinton email scandal is so bad that it’s getting difficult to find new ways for it to get any worse. However, the State Department has managed to do so. According to the results of a newly released internal audit, Hillary basically ignored the agency’s well-codified security regulations. ...And thanks to “comprehensive directives” it’s clear she knew exactly what she was doing..

    Mr. Beck. You found Zuck and Company cordial--they just find you useful In the wake of reports that Facebook censors conservative voices, media figure Glenn Beck met with company chairman Mark Zuckerberg and emerged from the meeting, as he put it, “convinced that Facebook is behaving appropriately and trying to do the right thing.” Nothing to see here, move along. Unfortunately, this is nonsense. Beck admits in his article on this subject, “I am not an expert on data or AI or algorithms.” Neither am I. But the Facebook censorship in the news isn’t about artificial intelligence but human intelligence—and...

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity SUBJECT: Those “Damn Emails” – “Really a Concern” Introduction Last Wednesday Robert Gates, CIA Director under President Bush-41 and Defense Secretary under President Bush-43, publicly commented that Secretary Hillary Clinton’s “whole email thing … is really a concern in terms of her judgment,” adding, “I don’t know what originally prompted her to think...

    I hope this does not qualify as Opus that gets me banned. My wife purchased a Lenovo Yoga II tablet along with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse for me as a replacement for an older Samsung galaxy tablet and Acer Aspire laptop because she wanted me to be able to travel with les stuff. The hope was that it would replace two devices (Laptop and Tablet) with one device. Instead it will stay in a drawer (Unless I purposely beat it with a hammer so I can throw it away)and I will use the older devices when I travel. It...

    Half of the European Union's member states on Monday called for the removal of barriers to the free flow of data both within and outside the 28-nation bloc to ensure the continent can benefit from new data-driven technologies. In a letter to the European Commission and the Netherlands - which holds the rotating EU presidency - ministers from countries including Poland, Britain, Sweden and Finland urged Brussels to make sure regulation is not a barrier to the development of data-driven technologies and to avoid one-size-fits-all rules for online platforms such as Amazon and Facebook.

    Italian 3D printing firm WASP is no ordinary company, claiming as its mission to save the world with digital fabrication technology and a new maker economy. To do its part in the World Advanced Saving Project (WASP), the firm has built its Big Delta 3D printer, a large-scale system capable of printing structures made from concrete and meant to produce homes for people in developing nations. It has yet to fulfill this latter goal, but a bit of news announced today indicates that WASP is making moves in the right direction. Together with Siam Cement Group (SCG) and architect Pitupong...
