Hearing aids, prosthetic limbs, even guns… 3D printers are certainly the creators of the future.

But now they are driving in a new direction.

American company Local Motors has built the world’s first 3D-printed car, made from a mix of carbon fibre and plastic.

The car’s body was created over two days, in a giant printer at a Chicago trade show.

It then took one day to refine the shape and two days to assemble the lightweight vehicle… which weighs in around 1,000 kilograms.

Local Motors engineer James Earl was part of the team which followed the design process from its beginnings in May this year.

Just four months later, he said he was excited the first, printed electric car was rolling off the production line.

“It’s not a very long time frame from conception to design to production, especially compared with traditionally-made vehicles,” he said.

Although other car…

The richest 1% of the world’s population are getting wealthier, owning more than 48% of global wealth, according to a report published on Tuesday which warned growing inequality could be a trigger for recession.

According to the Credit Suisse global wealth report (pdf), a person needs just $3,650 – including the value of equity in their home – to be among the wealthiest half of world citizens. However, more than $77,000 is required to be a member of the top 10% of global wealth holders, and $798,000 to belong to the top 1%.

“Taken together, the bottom half of the global population own less than 1% of total wealth. In sharp contrast, the richest decile hold 87% of the world’s wealth, and the top percentile alone account for 48.2% of global assets,” said the annual report, now in its fifth year.

The report, which calculates that total global wealth…

“We consider that our European partners, the European Commission, also can and must lend Ukraine a hand to resolve this problem,” said Putin on Friday at the end of three rounds of negotiation over a gas row with his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko, in Milan, Italy.

British Big Pharma warns Ebola vaccine will come ‘too late’ to halt spread

Originally posted on The Extinction Protocol :


October 2014AFRICA One of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies says a vaccine to tackle Ebola will “come too late” to curb the current epidemic, as the UK and other European countries begin screening passengers for the virus at international airports. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), a British multinational that produces pharmaceuticals, biologics and vaccines, said a working vaccine would not be readily available until late 2015, by which time the epidemic may have spread far beyond West Africa.  The statement follows warnings from the United Nations and World Health Organization (WHO) that there could soon be more than 10,000 new cases of Ebola per week if the spread of the disease is not curbed quickly. “We either stop Ebola now or we face an entirely unprecedented situation for which we do not have a plan,” said the UN’s Deputy Ebola Coordinator Anthony Banbury on Wednesday. “The WHO advises within 60…

SENTRY EAGLE: NSA’s “Core Secrets” Re: Covert Activities Inside Companies; Access Sensitive Data, Compromise Networks, Subvert Encryption

Peter Maass/Laura Poitras/TheIntercept:

The National Security Agency has had agents in China, Germany, and South Korea working on programs that use “physical subversion” to infiltrate and compromise networks and devices, according to documents obtained by The Intercept.

The documents, leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, also indicate that the agency has used “under cover” operatives to gain access to sensitive data and systems in the global communications industry, and that these secret agents may have even dealt with American firms. The documents describe a range of clandestine field activities that are among the agency’s “core secrets” when it comes to computer network attacks, details of which are apparently shared with only a small number of officials outside the NSA.

Previous disclosures about the NSA’s corporate partnerships have focused largely on U.S. companies providing the agency with vast amounts of customer data, including phone…

A doctor claims that he developed a successful drug to combat Ebola with the U.S. Army at Ft. Detrick Maryland but that the research was inexplicably shut down two weeks before the first outbreak of the virus in West Africa.

Richard C. Davis, M.D., a former flight surgeon with the U.S. Navy, told Infowars that he was leading a project to develop a drug called RC-2Beta, which according to Davis works, “at the core of our cells to enhance mitochondrial efficiency and promote gene signaling to stimulate cellular self-repair and pathogen destruction.”

In the fall of 2013, Davis’ company began collaborating with the US Army at their Level 4 bioweapons facility at Ft. Detrick, Maryland to develop the drug, with astounding…

“Regrettably, in some European countries the Nazi virus ‘vaccine’ created at the Nuremberg Tribunal is losing its effect.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the current low oil prices are “no tragedy” for the Russian budget, stressing that they may soon see an upward correction.

Speaking at a press briefing following talks with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Milan on Friday, Putin said the current price of US$80 per barrel is not profitable for producers and should rise in the near future.

The Russian state budget is drafted based on the price of $96 per barrel, he added.

Putin also reassured that that there will be no sharp rise in Russia’s budget deficit. He did, however, state that some corrections to the budget may be made, but that welfare spending won’t be affected.

“Maybe we’ll have to correct something in the budget. Maybe cut down some items but it surely won’t be connected…

Kiev and Moscow have failed to resolve their gas supplies dispute, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said after meeting Russia’s leader. According to Putin, only an agreement for winter supplies has been reached, but details are still to be worked out.

“We agreed on the basic parameters of the gas contract,” Poroshenko told reporters in Milan where leaders from Europe and Asia gathered for the ASEM Summit. According to the Ukrainian president, the Ukrainian side is looking for sources of funding to pay off the arrears.

US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki and Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby have been challenged over the Department of Defense’s claims that the US must “deal” with “modern and capable” Russian armed forces on NATO’s doorstep.

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu expressed“grave concern” and“surprise” at a Wednesday speech made by US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel during the Association of the United States Army’s annual conference. Hagel declared that US armed forces “must deal with a revisionist Russia – with its modern and capable army – on NATO’s doorstep.”

Now that Ukraine wants to receive Polish coal, and not Russian gas, free of charge, the Kremlin said it is surprised at Warsaw’s inconsistency towards Ukraine’s energy crisis.

“Our Polish partners have reacted in such a lively way to news of Ukraine wanting to get Polish coal almost free of charge,” Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said. The Russian President was in Milan Friday with European and Asian leaders at the ASEM summit.

Peskov sees a major inconsistency in Warsaw’s attitude towards Ukraine in terms of which resources can be obtained for free and which cannot. The aide told Poland it shouldn’t be surprised that Ukraine wants to receive coal without paying, since Poland thinks that giving Ukraine Russian gas for free is fair.

On Thursday, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Janusz Pehochinsky expressed disappointment that…

BREAKING: Obama Just Declared This Month ‘International Muslim Awareness Month

Well, it appears that President Obama has decided to designate August of each year as “International Muslim Awareness Month.” And his reasoning is as shocking as ever.

“The Muslim community around the world deserves our full acceptance, respect, apologies and most important, our awareness,” Obama told reporters during his announcement. “The world has done horrible things to the Muslim people since the beginning of time. Americans have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11 attacks. They are not all bad, in fact, most of them are good, hard-working folks just like yourself, living day to day, trying to survive and for that they need to be celebrated. So from now on, the world will know the month of August to be a month of celebration for the Muslim community, the Sunnah and the amazing teaching of the Quran.”
