Americans can legally download 3-D printed guns starting next month – CNN

The settlement ends a multi-year legal battle that started when Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a post-left anarchist, posted plans for a 3-D printed handgun he called “The Liberator” in 2013. The single-shot pistol was made almost entirely out of of ABS plastic — the same stuff they make Lego bricks out of — that could be made on a 3-D printer. The only metal parts were the firing pin and a piece of metal included to comply with the Undetectable Firearms Act. The US State Department told Wilson and his non-profit group Defense Distributed to take down the plans. It said the plans could violate International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which regulate the export of defense materials, services and technical data.

In essence, officials said someone in another country — a country the US doesn’t sell weapons to — could download the material and make their own gun. Wilson complied, but said the files already had been downloaded a million times. He sued the federal government in 2015. U.S. requires group to remove 3D gun instructions from its website The settlement The settlement, which is dated June 29, says that Wilson and Defense Distributed can publish plans, files and 3-D drawings in any form and exempts them from the export restrictions. The government also agreed to pay almost $40,000 of Wilson’s legal fees and to refund some registration fees. The settlement has not been made public, but Wilson’s attorneys provided a copy to CNN. “We asked for the Moon and we figured the government would reject it, but they didn’t want to go to trial,” said Alan M. Gottlieb with the Second Amendment Foundation, which helped in the case. “The government fought us all the way and

Trump uses Google fine as ammunition against the EU – Vox

President Donald Trump on Thursday used a recent fine against Google to fuel his complaints about the European Union. In a tweet, he seemed to suggest that this penalty was yet another sign of the EU’s abuse of the US — an argument he’s increasingly stressed in recent days as he makes the case for imposing potential auto tariffs on the longtime American ally.

“I told you so! The European Union just slapped a Five Billion Dollar fine on one of our great companies, Google,” Trump wrote. “They truly have taken advantage of the U.S., but not for long!”

I told you so! The European Union just slapped a Five Billion Dollar fine on one of our great companies, Google. They truly have taken advantage of the U.S., but not for long!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2018

The “Five Billion Dollar fine” Trump is referring to is a record penalty the EU levied against Google for antitrust violations this week. On Wednesday, the EU concluded a multiyear investigation and announced that it would punish Google for trying to bundle its own apps with its Android operating system.

Basically, the EU argues that Google forced phone makers to preinstall its Search and Browser apps onto Android phones, giving its products an unfair advantage over those of competitors. It’s the second multibillion-dollar antitrust-related fine the EU has hit Google with this year.

Trump’s attack comes as the US continues to navigate a strained relationship with the EU, one of several allies that the president has become more combative with in the past month. In early July, he called the EU “as bad as China” when it comes to trade practices, and more recently, he’s threatened impose sweeping auto tariffs as “retribution.”

3 New Yorkers Land on National Eater Young Guns List – Eater NY – Eater NY

Eater’s annual nationwide search for the industry’s top up-and-coming talent is over, and three people in New York won spots in the 2018 class of Young Guns — a crew that represents who’s shaping the restaurant world across the country.

Out of more than 2,000 entries, MáLà Project restaurateur Amelie Kang, Union Square Hospitality Group cafe Daily Provisions’ pastry chef Daniel Alvarez, and DeVonn Francis, the creator of culinary and art event company Yardy, have been named Young Guns.

Kang opened her Sichuan hot pot restaurant at the end of 2016, and the success inspired an entire crew of young restaurateurs to open atmospheric Chinese restaurants in the East Village. Now, she has three restaurants and has plans to at least four more in the next year. Read all about Kang’s rise here.

The man behind Daily Provision’s addictive pastries — including that cruller — is Alvarez, who spent time working at Dominique Ansel’s bakery and previously was the pastry sous chef at Gramercy Tavern. Find out more about his goals and background here.

And Francis has become known for sold-out parties with an ethos of uplifting black and brown people within the food industry. The Jamaican American chef sees Yardy as a way to increase visibility and allow people to celebrate themselves on their own terms. See more on him here.
