Two outside layers of a special polymer called polyurethane, and a concrete inner layer make for extremely effective insulation. Once you've printed the material you've used very little material, and produced zero waste. The other reason why we can say the material is good, is that this material once it's laid down allows us to achieve efficiency in the house which means that the wall is so insulating, you'll use very little energy to heat this house for 100 years."

Backers say it’s progress in green construction.
The first tenants are expected to move into this five-room house in June 2018.
Wahl, 47, who won the Mega Millions drawing in March, was introduced Friday, April 13, at the lottery’s headquarters. He’s opting to take the $220.7 million cash payout after taxes.
He told The Associated Press: “It was truly amazing. Some of my family members were sleeping so I didn’t go and scream out. I walked upstairs. I saw my wife … and said, ‘Baby, we get to go on vacation.’ She said, ‘What are you talking about? Don’t be an idiot.’”
He told NBC New York that the ticket was “life-changing.”
“We cried a lot together as a family,” said Wahl. “We didn’t sleep that much. The nerves, the shock of everything. I don’t think it’s still settled in for us.”
"Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama," Trump wrote on Twitter. "No Collusion, so they go crazy!"
The president's comment came shortly after he warned Russia that the United States will be attacking Bashar al-Assad's regime. Trump's warning was in response to an earlier threat by Russia to shoot down any missiles America launches into Syria.
The presence of Russian forces in Syria has long complicated American efforts there, but the latest remarks bring the two world powers to the brink of armed conflict at a time when relations between Washington and Moscow are in decline on several fronts.
At this crucial juncture, Trump would do well with a full range of diplomatic options, but his message appears to suggest that the Russia-collusion investigation is limiting what he can do and puts the global order in peril.
"Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this," Trump tweeted on Wednesday. "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together."
Millie Smith knows only too well what the feeling is like. Not only that, she knows how it feels to hold her newborn daughter, knowing that she would be snatched away from her only hours later; she knows how time flies when she only has three precious hours to love her daughter.
The young couple from Surrey, England, Millie Smith and her husband, Lewis Cann, were excited, and not so surprised when they discovered during Smith's nine-week check-up that she was carrying twins.
“We had a couple of weeks of excitement,” Smith explained.
“Twins run in my family. However, so far, there has not been a set of twins where both have survived. So I was almost prepared for the worst.”
At least 100 people have been left with severe bleeding amid the fake marijuana epidemic.
“Each day we’ve seen the number of cases rise,” said the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Nirav D. Shah in a statement.
Shah added: "Synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe. They are not regulated and people don’t know what chemicals may be in them, like rat poison. While efforts are underway to get the contaminated drugs out of circulation, it’s possible they could re-emerge. We urge people not to use synthetic cannabinoids now or ever."
Parrot Steals Roommate's Pillow celeste.li 2018-04-120 views This little green parrot was jealous that his roommate had a nice pillow to sleep on. In fact, he was so jealous, he stole it from their cage and dragged it back to his sleeping area to lie on.

The stadium also has a new beer, the NY Pinstripe Pilsner, that not only has the Yankees logo on it, but some of the players' faces as well. It's made by Long Island's Blue Point Brewing Company and will only be available at Yankee Stadium's Blue Point Bleachers Bar.
"We're making sure there's a wide variety of options and that we're keeping current with food trends," said Matt Gibson, executive chef at the stadium.
The Yankees will have their first home game of the season on April 2 against the Tampa Bay Rays.
They decided that adoption would be one way to do this, to make a difference for even just one child living in a world "inundated with loss, hardship, and a vast array of obstacles" could bring some "goodness, peace, or healing to [the] world," Jessica wrote.
The Davises did not make the decision lightly; they knew it would be a lot of work to support another child not just financially but emotionally, but they wanted to do this. They had done their research on adoption, domestically and internationally.
They remembered reading Uganda was one of the highest need countries, with almost 3 million orphans. So they opened their hearts and home to a little orphaned girl from Uganda named Namata, whom they nicknamed Mata. It was a long and difficult process to ensure an above-board and ethical adoption. That meant stacks of paperwork, nearly $65,000 of expenses in total, and a year of formalities before they were able to meet their child.
Nothing about it was easy, and it was a long and arduous ordeal just to bring the 6-year-old home.
Two woman heard a tree crash in the woods when she was working at a horse farm. She then started to hear cries and eventually went to investigate. She found two baby squirrels who had a nest on the fallen tree and were now helpless on the ground, their mother not in sight. Two woman picked them up and called the Orphaned Wildlife Center in Otisville, which documented the story on its Facebook page.
The charity’s employee found one of the squirrels had its front leg swollen. It was taken to Catskill Veterinary Services in Rock Hill, where a vet fitted a tiny cast on the broken limb.
“Hopefully a week or two in this splint and he will be as good as new,” the vet practice stated on Facebook.
The Orphaned Wildlife Center has since named the squirrel Katarina.
We all cheer happy endings, but the scene --- captured by a dashboard camera --- that unfolded on a freeway in Eastern England is down-right absurd. And I do not know whether to applaud, or laugh.
53-year-old Russell Dagless was driving his truck down a highway in Norfolk, England, when he noticed something: a white van was speeding down the road, and the driver’s head was slumped down onto his steering wheel --- he was unconscious.
Dagless did not hesitate. He had a plan to stop that van.
