We talked with our friend Nolan Gray, a city planner, about how the COVID-19 pandemic led to many transformations in big cities, such as New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. Many people are moving away from big cities as they are not required to work there anymore. Big cities are facing enormous challenges today, due to the heavy regulations on how businesses can operate, as well as the financial burdens they inflict on residents.
Let us know in the comments below if you or any person you know moved away from a big city and how they feel about it.

COVID-19 has upended life as we know it. Now more than ever, the world can feel confusing and chaotic. We wanted to cut through the noise and hear real stories from real people all around the world, so we decided to interview 12 people, in 6 countries. The only stipulation was that they had to be willing to speak openly and honestly about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We realized that despite the polarization around this topic, and intensity of opinions being shared, no one person really knows what’s going on. To move forward we need intellectual humility and empathy –– with a focus on our shared humanity –– especially at a time like this. T

It has been echoed that such free access to untraceable blueprints could threaten world peace and national security.
However, it has also been argued that If blueprints are speech, then 3D files are speech too. That means that, according to the constitution we have today, the government can’t prohibit them.
So what is 3D printing exactly?
3D printing is a process where a computer-aided-design (CAD) is sent to a printer where it is produced in three dimensions out of plastic or resin.
Matthew Larosiere, Director of Legal Policy Firearms Policy Coalition and Senior Contributor for Young Voices, explains what the future of 3D printing could mean for the gun industry.
