Police in Washington, D.C., are promising tight security for Sunday's "Unite the Right" rally. White nationalists and counter-protesters both plan to gather across from the White House to mark one year since the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia. One woman was struck and killed by a car driven by a white supremacist. The governor of Virginia has declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville ahead of the anniversary. Last year's rally was to protest a plan to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. That statue still stands in Charlottesville. Other cities, whoever, have removed Confederate statues, and they're finding the controversy doesn't end there.

Richard A. D'Aveni, The Washington Post Published 9:57 am PDT, Friday, August 10, 2018 Like any fast-developing technology, 3-D printing, described more technically as "additive manufacturing," is susceptible to a variety of misconceptions. While recent debates have revolved around 3-D-printed firearms, most of the practical issues in the field come down to the emergence of new manufacturing techniques. The resulting culture of innovation has led to some persistent myths. Here are five of the most common. Myth No. 1: 3-D printing is slow and expensive Early 3-D printing was indeed agonizingly slow, requiring expensive equipment, pricey materials and tedious trial-and-error fiddling to make improvements. In 2015, Quartz magazine said that 3-D printers are "still slow, inaccurate and generally only print one material at a time. And that's not going to change any time soon." When the stock price of the leading printer manufacturers was free-falling in 2016, Inc. magazine … [Read more...] about Five myths about 3-D printing
Law enforcement and city officials are preparing for protesters and counter-protesters to descend on Washington, DC, this weekend.
