    The United States has announced plans to withdraw from a 144-year postal treaty that sets lower international shipping rates. The US claims this treaty gives countries like China and Singapore an unfair advantage that floods the US market with cheap packages. The BBC reports the withdraw of this treaty will increase shipping costs from China by between 40% and 70%. The treaty in question is the Universal Postal Union, which established that each country should retain all money it has collected for international postage. The US Chamber of Commerce has said this treaty, ‘leads to the United (...) -- News, china, e-packet, shipping, tariff

    ICs have certainly changed electronics, but how much do you really know about how they are built on the inside? While decapsulating and studying a modern CPU with 14 nanometer geometry is probably not a great first project, a simple 54HC00 logic gate is much larger and much easier to analyze, even at low magnification. [Robert Baruch] took a die image of the chip and worked out what was going on, and shares his analysis in a recent video. You can see that video, below. The CMOS structures are simple because a MOSFET is so simple to make on an IC die. The single layer of aluminum (...) -- Misc Hacks, 54HC00, cmos, decapsulation, IC fabrication, reverse engineering

    Most CNC workflows start with a 3D model, which is then passed to CAM software to be converted into the G-code language that CNC machines love and understand. G-code, however, is simple enough that rudimentary coding skills are all you need to start writing your very own programmatic CNC tool paths. Any language that can output plain text is fully capable of enabling you to directly control powerful motors and rapidly spinning blades. [siemenc] shows us how to use Grasshopper – a visual node-based programming system for Rhino 3D – to output G-code that makes some interesting patterns and (...) -- cnc hacks, Software Hacks, 3d, CAD CAM, cnc, grasshopper, Rhino

    Marijuana became legal in Canada on Wednesday, and authorities are still trying to get used to it. Toronto's police have been pretty blunt about the matter, telling people to stop tattling on their neighbours for smoking weed or possessing pot plants. SEE ALSO: Pass the poutine: Weed is now legal in Canada and everyone's celebrating The directive came in a series of funny tweets, comparing the reporting of smoking or possession to trivial matters, like calling 911 to ask for directions or what one should do with frozen meat in the case of a power outage.

    Elizabeth Warren's announcement that she took a DNA test to prove she has a Native American ancestor likely inspired countless people to pursue genetic testing to investigate their own family lore.  Yet there's a reason why the Democratic senator's declaration was met with harsh criticism, including from the Cherokee Nation's secretary of state Chuck Hoskin Jr., who said Warren was "undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage." Indeed, there are sensitive, appropriate ways to talk about potentially having Native American ancestors.

    A student in Davis, California has claimed that around two weeks ago, she and a co-conspirator gave nine classmates cookies containing her grandfather's ashes. At least some of the students were aware there were ashes in the cookies before they consumed them, police told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. Others were apparently unaware and were "horrified" when they found out.  So far, it is unclear why the student felt motivated to bring desserts with human remains in them to school.

    Back in July, Tesla announced it had signed a deal in China allowing it to build up to 500,000 vehicles a year there. Now Elon Musk's company has acquired the land to build its manufacturing facility in Shanghai. The location of the Chinese Gigafactory was set as Shanghai because it has a free-trade zone, which means there's no need to partner with a local Chinese company before manufacturing can begin. As Reuters reports, the Shanghai government sold Tesla a plot of land that's roughly 860,000 square meters (213 acres) in size.

    Hard Refresh is a soothing weekly column where we try to reset your brain and cleanse it of whatever terrible thing you just witnessed on Twitter. In my opinion, one of the only reasons for YouTube to still exist is animal videos.  Otherwise a cesspool of screaming vloggers and disturbing children's content, pages like the Sunflower Farm Creamery and the Cincinnati Zoo (home of Fiona the hippo) lend the overstuffed platform a little joy. One of my favorites, though, isn't a page but a genre: dog show clips.

    Using a tractor, state and town officials in coastal New Hampshire attempted to drop the carcass of a minke whale into a dumpster in mid-September.

The minke whale — which can weigh up to 20,000 pounds — is one of 55 that have turned up dead on East Coast shores of the United States since January 2017.  The strange die-offs have officially been labeled as an "Unusual Mortality Event" (UME) by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

    It’s been four months since Facebook launched IGTV, with the goal of creating a destination for longer-form Instagram videos. Is it shaping up to be a high-profile flop, or could this be the company’s next multi-billion-dollar business? IGTV, which features videos up to 60 minutes versus Instagram’s normal 60-second limit, hasn’t made much of a splash yet. Since there are no ads yet, it hasn’t made a dollar, either. But, it offers Facebook the opportunity to dominate a new category of premium video, and to develop a subscription business that better aligns with high-quality content.
