Best Formatting for Conversion

(This isn't a "crisis" question...just a topic for conversation.) I often create documents which I later convert into Epub/AZW/MOBI formats. I basically use Word to create the documents. Has anyone done any research or testing to determine what the best basic settings (page size and format, fonts, etc.) that produce the most dependable and "closest to original" when they are converted? I have been using 8.5"x11" with .5 margins all around, Calibre or Times at about 10pts, full justified. T...

Admiring Armilla: Fabian’s Beautiful New Blown Glass Lamp

Fabian’s Armilla is a perfectly round and peculiarly beautiful blown glass pendant lamp that pays homage to Copernicus, of all people. Modeled on the “Renaissance depictions of the motions of stars and planets,” Armilla captures the age when early astronomers began to make imaginative models of planetary rings. These “armillary spheres” established a unique artistic form in their own right. Armilla lamps are 36 cm in diameter. The diffuser is glossy white blown glass with metal...

Collusion: The Real Russian Threat

Opinion Collusion: The Real Russian Threat USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Robert Mueller was asked to investigate the charge that President Trump had colluded with the Russians. After a two-year, $25 million effort involving an overwhelmingly Democrat team of lawyers, Mueller concluded that there was no collusion between President Trump and Russia.

ATF: No bump stocks used in a crime

In response to a FOIA request, ATF responds. Since this runs counter to the information about the Vegas shooting, it should make for even more conspiracy theories. Or it’s because ATF wasn’t allowed to inspect those guns.

How Reading a Bible Story Can Help Soothe Your Doubts

Doubts plague our feelings and thoughts. Often these have to do with whether or not living is a good thing at all. Can we count our lives as good and worthwhile, given the deep and various kinds of suffering we endure? It’s not just our own afflictions that generate doubts about the goodness of life and ultimately the goodness of God. We can’t escape the painful realities of friends who are dying, grieving relatives, animal suffering, and even the lamentable condition of people we only see o...

Faltering?

The compact camera market is in free-fall. Outside of specialty gizmos like "ruggedized" cameras that can film underwater or various superzooms, there's hardly a reason to buy a pocket camera for most people these days, given the capabilities of the typical cell cam.The larger-sensor ILC (interchangeable lens camera) market is cooling, too, albeit at a slightly slower pace. But even freshly-launched, much-hyped offerings from biggies like Canon, Nikon*, and Olympus are featuring incentives to so...

Boox Note Pro vs Likebook Mimas

I've searched forums and Youtube for comparisons between Boox Note Pro and the Likebook Mimas but came up empty. I'm really surprised that no one has compared them in a review yet. Has anyone had any experience of using both and, if so, what are your conclusions? I'm particularly interested in: 1) Screen durability for writing (Note Pro glass vs Mimas screen). 2) Ease and reliability of PDF annotation in both. 3) Speed/Power (4GB vs 2GB Ram and CPU differences). 4) Quality of front light in...

AMA uses Study to Push Gun Control, Note Media Role in Mass Shootings

Doctors and Guns U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- The AMA published a study of the effects of “Mass Shootings” on gun sales. The authors found gun sales were about as likely to decrease as to increase after the events. Instead of the traditional FBI definition of a mass murder as killing four or more people in a single incident, not including themselves, the study published by the AMA uses the more wide ranging “Mass Shooting”, which they define as an incident in which 5 or more people are injured or ...
