Facebook's tipping point of bad behaviour

Sadly Instagram and WhatsApp are both owned by Facebook so ditching only one of the three seems like a token gesture rather than a statement but this kind of thing is atrocious. Discrediting the bad news by promoting conspiracy theories?

With so much personal data at steak I don't think regulation and accountability can come soon enough.

Tiger trailer

Tiger is inspired by the true story of Pardeep Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who was banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs.

I've never heard of Pardeep Nagra but his case dates back 18 years.

Chromeo Tiny Desk Concert

The very first song instantly made me think of Tim Burton's Batman and in particular the song Partyman by Prince. After you've listened to the Chromeo's Tiny Desk Concert, go watch the scene it reminded me of with the Joker in an art gallery.

3D-printed ceramic parts made from lunar regolith

I had to look up regolith, but wow, these are effectively parts 3D printed with dirt.

"Normally their print process is based on materials such as aluminium oxide, zirconium oxide or silicon nitride. What we've demonstrated here is that it can also work with raw regolith, which is a collection of various different types of oxides, chiefly silicon oxide but also aluminium, calcium and iron oxides, among others."

Ground and sieved down to particle size, the regolith grains are mixed with a light-reacting binding agent, laid down layer-by-layer then hardened by exposing them to light. The resulting printed part is then 'sintered' in an oven to bake it solid.
