Mesmerizing 3-D Printer Forms Objects Out Of Ooze, And Fast, by Tim Moynihan, at wired.com. The innovation in the field of 3D printing is amazing. Carbon3D’s Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology is mind-blowing. This technique is mush faster than printing an object layer by layer. The object actually grows out of a tray of resin. Watch the video below.

 

Solar Industry Fiascos Continue, at instituteforenergyresearch.org. When Governments try to bring a technology forward before it’s time through tax breaks, tax subsidies, and tax payer backed loans, fraud is ultimately the result. When politicians and bureaucrats are handing out a big pile of tax payer money, there will be no shortage of con artists trying to get their hands on it. Government officials make bad venture capitalists, because they never have to pay the cost of their failures. Tax payers do.

More oil is being transported via rail and trucking which increases the chance of a spill. “Unintended” consequences?

German Court Places Nationwide Ban On Uber, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Government always tries to prop up the status quo. Government by its very nature is always tardy.

More Than 52,000 Canadians Left The Country For Medical Care In 2014, Bacchus Barua, at fraserinstitute.org. Government always produces a decreased supply of a lower quality product of service.
