The one-day Pay Your Age promotion last year saw Build-A-Bear stores closing early following the chaos that ensued due to popular demand After last year’s inaugural event left stores closing early due to the chaos surrounding popular demand, the company announced an altered offering that will allow a limited number of child customers to “pay their age” (e.g., $5 for a 5-year-old) for any stuffed animal in the store (excluding toys in their Pokémon and How to Train Your Dragon collections, outfits and accessories). Build-A-Bear’s new plan is a sweepstakes, where Bonus Club members can enter by June 16 to win a special ticket that will allow them to return to the store sometime between June 24 and 28 to take advantage of the deal. Up to two people can use the ticket to pay their age for a new plush toy. According to the toy company, more than 200,000 customers will be awarded the one-time ticket — and 10 extra-lucky entrants will win a birthday-party experience valued at $250, which kids can use anytime over the next year.

Giriraj Singh, Union Minister: Congress Buried Mahatma Gandhi’s Policies

Khadi sales increased three-fold from the 2014-15 sale due to PM Modi’s appeal, Giriraj Singh said (File) Union minister Giriraj Singh on Thursday accused the Congress of burying Mahatma Gandhi’s policies despite using his name for political gains. “Mahatma Gandhi not only boycotted Manchester clothes but he also provided khadi as a medium of earning source for women and independence struggle,” said the union minister of state for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. “But after Independence struggle, Gandhiji was used by political leaders, particularly the Congress, to take political benefit. It buried Gandhiji’s policies,” Mr Singh alleged while addressing a gathering on the inaugural day of ‘Rashtriya Khadi and Saras Mahastov’ at Ranchi’s Morahbadi ground. Mr Singh said Mahatma Gandhi’s policies were to provide jobs in every household through khadi. He alleged that after the Congress came to power khadi slowly was considered as ‘netaji’s dukan’ (political leaders attire). However, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, he appealed to the people that khadi is not just a clothi...

How much do you know about 3D printing’s subtractive rival, CNC milling? We take a deeper

How much do you know about 3D printing’s subtractive rival, CNC milling? We take a deeper look into the technology, including what it is and what types of machines and tools exist. Computer numerical control (CNC) is programmed code that represents instructions for precise movements to be carried out by machines. Indirectly, this code defines how to automatically create, produce, or transform a virtual object into a real one. Based on this definition, a CNC machine must interact with a computer equipped with software that transforms numerical code into Cartesian coordinates. This allows the machine to work with a high degree of precision, just like a robot. A CNC machine transforms raw material into a finished model through different methods, either by adding (additive) or removing (subtractive) material. The available techniques depend on the type of machine. A 3D printer or CNC milling machine are fine examples of additive and subtractive CNC machines, respectively. Milling is the process of cutting and drilling material (like wood or metal). A milling machine, regardless of whether it’s operated manually or through CNC, uses a rotating cylindrical tool called a milling...
