    Wisconsin reached over 300,000 active concealed carry weapon permits in 2016.  The number of permits issued reached 300,000 by the end of March, but the number of active permits is a bit behind the number of permits issued.  People die.  People move. People forget to renew their permit. I obtained information on the number of active permits from the Wisconsin Department of Justice.  As of 1 January, 2016, there were 276,011 active permits. Three months later, as of 1 July, 2016, the number of active permits was at 305,463. 92.5% of all applications received in the first six months...

    "[Three-dimensional] printing brings something to magnet design which we could previously only dream of," said researcher Dieter Süss. VIENNA, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- From a technological perspective, making a powerful magnet is no problem. Precisely controlling the shape of magnet's magnetic field, however, has proven difficult -- until now. Engineers at TU Wien have for the first time designed and produced magnets using a 3D printer. The method offers scientists newfound control over the size and shape of the magnetic field, allowing them to produce magnets that better meet the needs of a range of technologies.

    Real Clear Politics posted an article about why WikiLeaks email attacks “fizzled.”Writer Bill Scher downplayed the exposed machinations of the Clinton campaign, and even Hillary’s handsomely rewarded speeches before big banks and Wall Street. He explained how “WikiLeaks tried to take down a candidate with embarrassing private emails and failed.”Scher wrote that the only thing “exposed” by the Podesta emails is the “grist of political life.” This is just the way things are. “It doesn’t make our politicians or our Democracy a sham,” he stated.In fact, if we were to uncover the emails from the Ted Cruz campaign, or some...

    Yes, the democrats. Specifically the husband of communist plant and Alinsky-ite representative Jan Schakowsky: •Democrats have used trained provocateurs to instigate violence at Republican events nationwide throughout the 2016 election cycle, including at several Donald Trump rallies, using a tactic called “bird-dogging,” according to a new video investigation released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The goal of “bird-dogging”: to create a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value. O’Keefe’s extensive video investigation reveals that the...

This happened after the ninth consecutive day of releases of emails from the hacked account of John Podesta, the chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign committee. It also comes on the heels of a potentially serious campaign finance problem for the Hillary for America committee, the primary fundraising vehicle for Clinton, according to an email released by WikiLeaks just yesterday.

That achievement grew out of the appeal of the all-metal Trinus 3D printer, the first all-metal 3D printer to dip below the $500 price point. In fact, early bird pledgers picked one up for just $199. While huge Kickstarter successes sometimes create equally huge logistic challenges, Kodama seems to have thought of everything and the first...

This anonymous poster claims that the 33,000 deleted Hillary Clinton e-mails will be the undoing of the Democrat party.

The emails also revealed that back in 2015, the Clinton campaign strategized about ways to elevate Donald Trump and other “extreme” Republicans — as “Pied Piper” candidates who would ultimately be so “unpalatable,” they’d help her win. These “Pied Piper” candidates also included Ted Cruz and Ben Carson, according to the email, sent to the...

Even at the end, while highly dubious about his conclusion, I found myself having at least a bit of sympathy...

    In 2014, a small start-up shook SOLIDWORKS World with a game-changing technology capable of reinforcing nylon 3D-printed parts with continuous carbon fiber. Markforged, out of Cambridge, Mass., demonstrated that for about $5,000, any machine shop, manufacturing facility or lab could produce carbon fiber–reinforced parts on-demand. The company has since upgraded its system with the Mark Two 3D printer and released a number of new materials, including Kevlar reinforcement and a chopped carbon fiber-nylon composite. Now, however, Markforged aims to change the 3D printing game once again with a new printer dubbed the Mark X. spoke to Markforged CEO and...
  • Time Warner Cable versus ATT Uverse

    ATT was in my neighborhood today promoting U-verse. I haven't had any experience with it and have been on Time Warner for a long time. Is Uverse any better than Time Warner? Time Warner over the past year has been a disappointment in a lot of areas. I'm more interested in data and internet than TV and plan to keep the POTS line. ATT offers a dedicated 24 meg line. TWC is 20ish and a lot of times I don't think it's that much. It's probably shared through the area. I've run speed tests and got anywhere from 15-19.

    BERLIN — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange once again promised the anti-secrecy organization would publish "significant" information involving the U.S. presidential race before the November election — but revealed no details Tuesday. "We are going to need an army to defend us from the pressure that is already starting to arise," Assange said via video link in an event the campaigner said was timed to coincide with the group's 10-year anniversary. He said WikiLeaks aimed to publish previously unreleased material weekly for the next 10 weeks, but did not say exactly what it would be. The organization also declined to say...

    Julian Assange's ‘Hillary October surprise There is no pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow, but most in Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” already knew that. Slick-talking Julian Assange and his ‘Hillary October surprise’ came to an ignominious end early this morning with Assange making a fool of himself while sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with the word, ‘Truth’. Most useful idiots claim truth as their own. While he had nothing new to report before the sun was up over America, count on Assange coming back with ‘teasers’ to keep people believing there is something significant about Clinton coming...
  • Google promotes controversial claim it’s NOT possible for ethnic minorities to be racist

    GOOGLE is promoting the idea that ethnic minorities CANNOT be racist toward white people. The tech giant’s search results appear to foreground left-leaning answers to this highly controversial question, rather than giving a view which reflects the fact there is debate over this contentious issue. It is not clear whether this is conscious decision from Google, or whether it is a result of the algorithms it uses to compile search results America is currently locked in a passionate argument about whether some supporters of groups like Black Lives Matter are actually racist towards white people, with people from different sides...

    What had been billed as an address to the gathered media from the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has been changed to a video presentation that will be shown in Berlin — not called off, as some had reported, but changed to Germany. The reason for the shift in location and the fact that Assange will not appear live? “Specific information,” presumably about a credible threat. Assange has been hinting for some time that the proverbial “October surprise” for Hillary would have a huge impact on the viability of her presidential campaign. He appeared on Fox News last...

    Presenting YAUGU (yet another urban grow unit). We've highlighted many variations of indoor gardening systems over the years, some of them simple and low tech and some of them with decidedly 'smart' features, and all of them with the same goal: to help people grow some of their own food inside their homes. You don't necessarily need one of these purpose-built growing units to start an indoor garden, as DIY versions can be much cheaper to build (although perhaps lacking some of the automated features), but for those who aren't into making their own indoor planters, there are certainly many...

    United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Welcome to Day 1 of the World Wide Web under new—foreign—management. As quickly as you could say Barry Soetoro the Internet was all but officially stamped ‘Made in China’ at midnight last night. No notice of the dramatic change was made by the New York Times, Washington Post or any of the other mainstream media power brokers. But Andrea Zelinski of the Houston Chronicle did report at 7:20 p.m., Friday that a federal judge had rejected Attorney General Ken Paxton’s 11th-hour attempt to keep the internet address book under U.S. control:
