Texas prisons to start 3D-printing dentures for toothless inmates




David Ford has teeth. Theyre not real, and theyre prison issued. But the 58-year old wants you to see them, flashing a full smile at every opportunity. I feel like Im back, he said. The Harris County man waited four years before finally getting his dentures in November after a Houston Chronicle investigation revealed that toothless inmates in Texas prisons were routinely denied dental prosthetics and instead forced to gum their food or drink it, pureed in cups. But Fords new pearly whites could mark the end of an era for the states prison system.

GoPro to move production out of China over tariff concerns




SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) Action-camera maker GoPro says it will move production of U.S.-bound cameras out of China by the summer over tariff-related concerns. Companies have been voicing concerns over a looming trade war between China and the U.S. as both countries have been threatening tariffs against one another. GoPro did not say Monday where production was moving or how much the move would cost. The San Mateo, California-based company did say that it owns its own manufacturing equipment, so it will only be changing the physical location of where production will take place. Production of international-bound cameras will remain in China. GoPro shares slipped nearly 2 percent to $4.88 in morning trading.

Business owners need to teach staffers about password safety




NEW YORK (AP) It may seem obvious: Companies' computers, mobile devices and accounts need secure passwords. But many small business owners don't take the time to educate staffers about these very basic forms of cybersecurity. And staffers may not know that their passwords could be easily guessed by hackers and cyberthieves. Whenever there's news of a data breach at a big company, or people hear of a friend's email being hacked, many computer users realize they need to change their passwords. It's a good start, but not enough. A study by researchers at Virginia Tech's Department of Computer Science found that it's fairly easy to guess how people modify their passwords after a breach.
