Smith & Wesson: Reputation Among Gun Supporters Is Main Concern

Fox Business: Alienating firearms backers would “cause the greatest reputational and financial harm” to American Outdoors Brand Corp., the manufacturer disclosed in a federal filing on Friday “The one overriding factor mitigating the effectiveness of gun control groups to damage the reputations of those in the firearms business is the passion and strength of firearms owners in defending their rights at the ballot box, in the course of legislative debates, and in the marketplace,” Smith & Wesson...

Cheapest with light?

A friend needs a cheap e-reader with a light. I can't think of any specific other features they need. Slight preference for Amazon. Probably would go for a used older one on eBay. I'm thinking a 3rd Gen Paperwhite? Is there an older one that's worth it? They don't want the absolute cheapest, if there is a better one for only $5 more, that could be worth it, but they want pretty cheap. Thank you in advance!

Lady Pillow Doll, some design tweeks

I’m trying out a few little tweeks in my lady pillow design. This lovely Poppy Lady is in a summer dress- scoop neck and sleeveless. She is pretty much all cashmere- everything except her hair and shoes. It is so nice to get something finished. It has been too long! I have visited my favorite Thrift Stores recently to check out if the rumors were true- tons of donated everything, inspired by Marie Kondo‘s show on Netflix. The pickings were excellent and I think I’m probably all set for...

PDF Files; Metadata & File Names; Adding Physical Book Info

Hello All: I'm new to calibre, but have been playing around with it all day (about 8 hrs now).

Kindle 1 (1st Generation) Battery

I'm looking for a replacement battery for an old original Kindle that's still in service. I know newpower99 has these, but they are $25. A quick google shows people selling then from $10-30. I don't understand why there is such a spread on pricing. Can anyone recommend a reliable dealer that maybe isn't double the price like newpower99?

The WPA's horseback librarians

During the 1930s, the WPA sponsored horseback librarians -- all women -- to visit rural Americans, bringing them books; the librarians were only allowed to make deliveries in counties that had existing libraries, so schools and other institutions donated materials to establish libraries that would make their counties eligible. The program ran until 1943, and, as with many WPA programs, it was lavishly documented by talented photographers, as a reminder to all of us in their future that Amer...

Audiobook not syncing with ebook.

I purchased it at the same time I purchased the ebook. I went to the page I purchased the book and the audible I purchased is Whispersync for Voice enabled. Any ideas? Any noticeable change I see is they updated the cover of the book https://www.amazon.com/The-Regulator...9916636&sr=1-1
