PSA AK-104 Trigger Time and First Look at The Gathering

U.S.A. -( The true Russian AK-104 is an interesting beast. It’s essentially just a slightly cut-down version of the polymer-stock, modernized AK-100 series carbines chambered in 7.62x39mm. Despite this, it has some mystique about it that makes it oddly desirable to shooters who love modern Russian firearms. Especially given how uncommon the gun – or civilian-legal variants of it – are in the United States. But that all is changing with Palmetto State Armory’s entry into the AK market.

For the uninitiated, the AK-100 series of rifles are functionally identical to the stamped-receiver AKM carbine that has seen conflict on nearly every continent on Earth. But they differ from the wooden-stocked commie-blasters in a few key ways. Mainly the addition of a single port muzzle brake, threaded gas block, and use of polymer furniture. They still use the same die-hard AK magazines, but newer models ship with steel-reinforced polymer magazines.… Read the rest

A mouse embryo has been grown in an artificial womb—humans could be next

The photographs alone tell a fantastic story—a mouse embryo, complete with beating heart cells, a head, and the beginning of limbs, alive and growing in a glass jar.

According to a scientific group in Israel, which took the picture, the researchers have grown mice in an artificial womb for as long as 11 or 12 days, about half the animal’s natural gestation period.

It’s record for development of a mammal outside the womb, and according to the research team, human embryos could be next—raising huge new ethical questions.

“This sets the stage for other species,” says Jacob Hanna, a developmental biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science, who led the research team. “I hope that it will allow scientists to grow human embryos until week five.”

Growing human embryos in the lab for that long, deep into the first trimester, would put science on a collision course with the abortion … Read the rest

How a crypto billionaire made the decision to become one of Joe Biden’s biggest donors

An interview with Sam Bankman-Fried, who uses math for … everything.

One of the people who Joe Biden should thank for becoming president is a 28-year-old cryptocurrency zealot who sleeps on an office beanbag chair most nights, believes businesses focus too much on social responsibility, and has, seemingly out of nowhere, become worth $10 billion.

This is Sam Bankman-Fried, who represents a new breed of entrepreneurs who think obsessively — and, at times, counterintuitively — about the value of becoming rich. Their civic-mindedness doesn’t lead them into do-gooder careers, but into earn-earn-earn careers where they can maximize their fortunes. And Bankman-Fried has ridden the crypto boom to more or less check off part one of his two-part plan, which goes like this:

Make a tremendous amount of money by any means necessary. … Read the rest

ATF Agents Showing Up At Homes of Unfinished 80% Gun Frame Dealers, Don’t Let Them In

ATF Agents Showing Up At Homes of Unfinished 80% Gun Frame Dealers

BALTIMORE, MD –-( Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Agents from the Baltimore Field Office have been visiting the homes of buyers of large quantities of Polymer80 frames and kits.

Five special agents and Detective EE Schwartz of the Anne Arundel County Police Department showed up at the door of one of the co-owners of 2A Builds. 2A Builds is a company that sells unfinished 80% kits at gun shows in the mid-Atlantic region of the country. They recently purchased 65 frames from U.S. Patriot Armory.

The agents wanted to search the owner’s house, and the owner agreed because he had nothing illegal. The agents didn’t find anything against the law in the home but did want to take the owner’s legally owned firearms. The owner refused then the agents said they were just going to … Read the rest

Facebook is making a bracelet that lets you control computers with your brain

Facebook says it has created a wristband that translates motor signals from your brain so you can move a digital object just by thinking about it.

How does it work? The wristband, which looks like a clunky iPod on a strap, uses sensors to detect movements you intend to make. It uses electromyography (EMG) to interpret electrical activity from motor nerves as they send information from the brain to the hand. The company says the device, as yet unnamed, would let you navigate augmented-reality menus by just thinking about moving your finger to scroll.

A quick refresher on augmented reality: It overlays information on your view of the real world, whether it’s data, maps, or other images. The most successful experiment in augmented reality was Pokémon Go, which took the world by storm in 2016 as players crisscrossed neighborhoods in search of elusive Pokémon characters. That initial promise has faded … Read the rest

The number of Americans getting back on planes is taking off

Americans are eager to get back to normal activities like flying. It’s probably not safe to do that yet. | Getty Images

TSA data shows Americans are flying more than last year, despite the threat of another wave of Covid-19 cases.

The number of people flying each day in the United States officially surpassed last year, according to checkpoint data from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). It seems Americans are increasingly behaving like they’re done with the pandemic, even as it continues to wreak havoc on the country.

The number of people who passed through TSA checkpoints at airports in the US surpassed last year’s numbers for the first time earlier this week, with 1.1 million people doing so on Wednesday versus fewer than 954,000 a year ago. That gap was even wider Thursday, with 1.4 million people clearing checkpoints in the US — nearly double what it was a … Read the rest

FOAC Public Statement Clarifying Position on 80% Gun Parts & Sales

AR15 Polymer 80% Receiver Kit

Pennsylvania – -( Public Statement clarifying our position on behalf of the officers / BOD of Firearms Owners Against Crime.

I am writing to clear the air about the most recent confusion surrounding the press release of 3/15/2021 titled “Rep. Amen Brown, Eagle Arms, Polymer 80 Kits and Violent Criminals”.

Firearms Owners Against Crime has not, is not, and will not advocate, promote, or support the registration or banning of any gun part, accessory, unfinished lower, parts kits, kit gun, magazine, or any piece of plastic or metal.

Although FOAC supported and supports Eagle Arms as a private company that made hard and unpopular policy decisions about their own shows, we will not standby while insinuations are made that cast a shadow of doubt upon our unwavering belief that the 2nd Amendment and Article 1 Sections 21 and 25 of the Pennsylvania Constitution shall NOT … Read the rest

Did the coronavirus leak from a lab? These scientists say we shouldn’t rule it out.

Nikolai Petrovsky was scrolling through social media after a day on the ski slopes when reports describing a mysterious cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China, caught his eye. It was early January 2020, and Petrovsky, an immunologist, was at his vacation getaway in Keystone, Colorado, which is where he goes most years with his family to flee the searingly hot summers at home in South Australia. He was soon struck by an odd discrepancy in how the pneumonia cases were portrayed. Chinese authorities and the World Health Organization were saying there was nothing to worry about, but locals in the area, he says, were posting about “bodies being stretchered out of houses in Wuhan and police bolting apartment doors shut.”

Petrovksy is a professor at Flinders University, near Adelaide, and he is also founder and chairman of a company called Vaxine that develops immunizations for infectious diseases, among other … Read the rest

Amazon’s $10 billion NFL deal is huge — and a sign that sports is staying on TV for a while longer

The NFL loves TV and TV loves the NFL.

It’s finally happened. A big tech company is paying really big dollars for exclusive rights to show big-time sports: Amazon is paying a reported $10 billion over 10 years to show NFL games on Thursday nights.

But Amazon’s huge deal — by far the biggest move by a tech company into live sports — also illustrates how closely intertwined big-time sports is with traditional TV.

That’s because the rest of the deals the NFL formally announced today look a whole lot like the deals the NFL has done for years: The vast majority of its games will run on the traditional TV networks owned by Fox, Disney, ViacomCBS, and NBCUniversal. That is: While we’ve been watching viewing habits change over the years — quite slowly at first … Read the rest
