As we start to 3D-print everything — including houses, of all things — it’s pretty impressive that a company built one in just 24 hours. Located in Russia, this 400-square-foot home (37 square meters) was built in just a day, at a cost of just over $10,000.

Americans reject the ‘homeschool myth’ — experts say it might be better than public or charter schools
During Betsy DeVos’ recent three-hour confirmation hearing to become President Donald Trump’s education secretary, charter schools came up no fewer than 60 times. Homeschooling was mentioned once.
