Boston marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsanarev died from “gunshot wounds of torso and extremities,” said a funeral director.
Funeral owner Peter Stefan also listed Tsanarev’s time of death as 1:35am on April 19, 2013–four days after the bombing in Boston, which killed three and injured over 260. Continue reading

Soldiers will not always be prepared in times of unexpected battles. It is the main reason for the existence Army’s Rapid Equipping Force (REF). This division ensures that the soldiers will always be prepared. Their team of engineers is very fast but with the use of 3D printers, they just must become a little faster.
The military will set up what is called the Expeditionary Lab - Mobile to select Afghanistan locations. The lab is made up of shipping containers that are 20 feet long and are filled with the latest in technology, including plasma cutters, industrial CNC machine, 3D printer, and more.
The tools inside the lab let the engineers make new parts for guns and other equipment on the spot in Afghanistan instead of having to ship the new equipment from overseas. It reduces the cost of shipping, but also means that soldiers will get immediate access to potential life saving equipment.
The CNS machines and 3D printers will be used to create custom made parts for armor, guns, and other equipment which the soldiers will use in the field.
Currently, there is only a single lab in Southern Afghanistan and the military plans to deploy another one in the Eastern region come fall. There will also be one in the US as support for natural disasters.
The options available for smartphones these days will make anyone dizzy. It is extremely difficult to choose a single model immediately, because there are so many choices to choose from. This article will give you an idea of where to begin–whether you’re buying a smart phone or a simple device for texting and calling, the tips below will help you get more insight on the most important things to consider and the important questions you need to ask.

Finally, someone has come up with a productive use of 3D printers. The plastic somethings that they have been creating from these machines are not really giving that much justice to 3D printing and its promises of being of great use to us.
This will definitely be a great developments for those who have an inexplicable love for sweets.
British taxpayers will no doubt be tickled to know that the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the UK government’s leading funding agency for research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, has produced this video about chocolate printing.
As the scientists explain, consumers who download a piece of software will easily be able to sketch the kind of chocolate they’d like to make. Then they can send the 3D CAD file to a machine in a local shop and pick up their chocolate 10 minutes later.
Now, getting your own daily dose of chocolate can simply be downloaded and printed, sparing you the big feat of going to the store to get it in the exact kind that you want.
Of course, as most of us probably know, printing will always not go as smoothly as it is advertised. Sometimes, it will have to experience jams. And in the case of making chocolate, it can get pretty messy.
With the growing popularity of 3D printing, we have been made to believe that whatever we can draw, we can make. This might be easier said than done but with some practice, anyone can fabricate almost anything with a 3D printer.

In the latest episode of Always On, CNET’s Rich Brown, ventured into 3D printing to print his own Phone case. Here is a brief overview of the process of 3D printing.
- Acquire a 3D model file via download, by designing a model yourself, or by scanning a physical object.
- Send that file to the 3D printer, generally via your Windows, Mac, or Linux-based computer.
- The printer then draws from a spool of 1.75-millimeter or 3mm plastic filament, printing your design by building up layers of heated, extruded plastic.
- Bask in the glow of having brought into existence an actual 3D object.
Unless your line is into serious prototyping, anyone who wants to print 3D things will have to shell out at least $1,500 for a good machine. You will also have to deal with maintenance, mechanics, and programming language.
One popular option is to just outsource your 3D printing job to companies like Shapeways. You just have to upload your design to them and they will take care of printing it.
