3D Printing Ted Talk – Using AI and 3D Printing Together

What do artificial intelligence and prostheses have in common? The software uses artificial intelligence algorithm to customize 3D printable prostheses and orthoses to fit the individual wearers’ needs. It allows creating individual supportive devices based on a 3D scan of the limb and does it in minutes rather than hours.

Janis Jatnieks believes that involving AI and advanced technologies, has a huge potential to help people with special needs. Technology advancements and human creativity will open up new horizons and possibilities for human body. Janis is passionate to push the limits and be in the frontline of adapting these technologies.

Janis Jatnieks is one of the creators of a new artificially intelligent 3D modeling software, which enables mass customization of designs based on a 3D scan.

According the 3D Printing Trade Association: “3D Printing Is 33 years old and still in it’s infancy. Watch the technologies converge.

Customer Reviews – Beauty Smart

“I was referred to Deana through my doctor for a small spot I had on my nose. I didn’t know what it was, but every time I looked in the mirror, there it was, for almost one year. I went in and in 2 treatments that each lasted probably 5 minutes each, the spot disappeared after the second treatment in only days. The nice part of the experience was that Deana checked in by text EVERY DAY to see how things were moving along for me. I was so impressed by her follow up and that she really wanted to make a difference for me. She is professional and really cares about her customers. I would recommend her and her services to anyone that wants to feel and look better. I can’t wait to go back for some of her other services. Thank you!” – Lauren Golen

Visa, Mastercard Expectations High But Maybe Not High Enough

Clearly, Visa is a believer that grass doesn’t grow on a rolling stone. It’s harder to stay at the top than it is to get there.

A recent article lauded Visa but wondered if it wasn’t being overvalued. We report but don’t comment here on the stock market or individual stock performance but we are a big fan of the card brands and would like to compile the reasons Visa has a bright future.

Podcast: Beneficial Ownership Defined And Analyzed

As Rich Consulting president Deana Rich explains in this week’s paymentfacilitator.com podcast, the Treasury’s beneficial ownership rule announced in May will require banks to perform KYC on all owners with more than 25 percent ownership as well as the person that manages or runs the business, and banks will likely turn that extra work over to ISOs or PFs underwriting merchants or submerchants.

There are different impacts to banks and their PF partners based on the size and ownership/operation structure of the merchant. The largest category of submerchants are sole proprietors or owned by one person, who also runs the business. All PFs are performing KYC on these owners and therefore there is no change to this category.

Millennials, Seeking Uniqueness, Flock To Klarna To Pay Their Way

Millenials’ decreasing use of credit cards and increasing use of debit opens doors for companies like Swedish company Klarna, a payment facilitator that offers mobile and online buyers the choice of traditional payments – charge now-or within 14 days or in installments.

Klarna works seamlessly at checkout, says Klarna North America CEO Brian Billingsley-an email address and zip code is all a shopper needs if not paying immediately. Once that info is inputted it doesn’t need to be entered again at Klarna merchant partners. Billingsley says Klarna gives millennials a little of what they’re looking for when shopping, control and uniqueness.

Tanzania Loses More Than Half Of Elephants In Past Decade

Proposed Program Will Defend Ecosystems, Wildlife

The Kilimanjaro region of East Africa is one of the most threatened ecosystems on earth. Millions of people and several endangered species depend on the snows and rains of Kilimanjaro for survival. As land use encroaches further into local forests, water flows are changing and conflicts with wildlife are rising. A nonprofit organization in Tanzania hopes to reverse those trends with a comprehensive forest conservation, reforestation and community-engagement program.

wildlife conservation Africa

The Mellowswan Foundation Africa-Tanzania will defend the greater Kilimanjaro ecosystem with more than 10 million new seedlings, community engagement, wildlife conservation strategies and more. They will educate local stakeholders about sustainable forestry, sustainable agriculture and wildlife management. Unlike past reforestation efforts in the region, it will focus on local needs and long-term sustainability. The seedlings are indigenous species that can help restore and protect the integrity of the ecosystem, while helping rural communities thrive as stewards of the land.

Unfortunately, forests across the region are retreating under the pressures of agriculture and communities that depend on firewood.

Climate change is impacting every continent. Deforestation and intensive agriculture are contributing to the problem. Fortunately, forest conservationreforestation, and sustainable agriculture are part of the solution.

The foundation plans to save wildlife, capture carbon and reduce deforestation on a massive scale. This investment will benefit the entire planet, while preserving a world treasure.

water conservation Tanzania

Tanzania lost more than half of its elephants to poachers over the past decade. They could be wiped out entirely in just five or six years. Adding to the crisis, there has been loss of wildlife habitat and biodiversity as a result of fragmentation and loss of critical ecosystem linkages and over-exploitation of the natural habitats. This loss of habitat brings humans and wildlife into more and more conflict over food, water and space–which means more bloodshed.

“We have some powerful sponsorship packages,” said Crossbow President Gary Chandler. “We also have some very unique rewards for donors. Please help spread the word to your friends, families and favorite companies. This is a very important program to the entire world.”

Reforesting Tanzania To Defend Ecosystems

Program Hopes To Mitigate Climate Change, Wildlife Extinction

Ecosystems around the world are under assault like never before. The collapse of any ecosystem impacts life around the world–especially when the ecosystem is an anchor in Africa’s greenbelt.

The greater Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania and Kenya is one of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. Millions of people and several endangered species depend on the snows and rains of Kilimanjaro for survival. If these ecosystems collapse, it will have a ripple effect across Africa and around the world.

Tanzania deforestation and climate change

Conservationists are demanding more efforts to protect endangered species now. In a letter published July 27, 2016 in the journal BioScience, 43 wildlife conservationists warn that elephants, lions, rhinos, gorillas and many other species will become extinct without urgent intervention, which must include habitat conservation, community engagement and more.

We will plant trees for sustainable timber, rainfall management, groundwater conservation, food, wildlife habitat and other regional needs. We will include an urban forestry program that will help “street kids” generate food and income. The urban canopy can help capture pollutants and water runoff, while making the cities more resilient and energy efficient.
