Ten Years in an Hour

Time lapse footage of a decade's worth of images from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. At the speed of the video, every second is a day.You can see by the end that we've entered an extremely quiet period for solar activity.In other news, our planet's magnetic field is acting wonky, but this is 2020, so nothing's really surprising. .

eBook viewer not opening in Ubuntu 20

Hi, have been looking for a post about this, but apparently I'm the first. Yesterday I was tweaking with folders at /etc/apt and some other stuff to solve an epson printer problem. Today calibre's eBook viewer doesn't work I reinstalled the viewer, but still. Calibre does open all formats that I haven't selected to be opened by eBook viewer, but those that have been don't. For example pdfs are opened by the document viewer, but mobis and epubs don't open. No error message appears. Any ideas? ...

"In a seminar... Mary [Trump] and her 15 or so fellow students analyzed the Compson family portrayed in novels such as 'The Sound and the Fury.' The Compsons bore some similarities to her own family..."

"...Like Donald Trump’s mother, the Compsons immigrated to the United States from Scotland, and the family was riven by dysfunction. At the time, Donald Trump was running his Atlantic City casinos, which went into bankruptcy, and preparing to divorce his first wife, Ivana, and marry Marla Maples."From "Mary Trump once stood up to her uncle Donald. Now her book describes a ‘nightmare’ of family dysfunction" (WaPo).The Compson family, eh? Here's the rundown of the supposedly Trump-like clan:Jason ...

Where's the option to mark new books?

No more x-ray

Since the 5.12.5 update, the x-ray function seems to be permanently disabled on my Gen. 10 Paperwhite. I also have a Gen. 7 with 5.12.4 installed, and it's fine. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Thanks.

Forma I will use whatever the default font face is set for a book. Here's why.

Whatever a book's default font face is (labelled as Publisher Default in the dropdown list in Kobo's settings), I won't change it. You know why? Because if you change it to Kobo Ember or Calibri or whatever, then you lose the variety of fonts that come with "Publisher Default". For instance, I was reading a book last night whose chapter headings were sans-serif and block-like and whose main text was svelte and serif. If I go with something other than "Publisher Default", I get a boring, homogen...

Who Will Secure the Right of the American People to Keep and Bear Arms? PART ONE

Who Will Secure the Right of the American People to Keep and Bear Arms? PART ONE U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- We begin with one simple basic, indisputable, but melancholy truth: No Branch of our Government cares deeply about preserving and strengthening the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; neither Congress; nor the U.S. Supreme Court; nor, for that matter, the Chief Executive of our Nation, President Donald Trump.

What’s in a Name? Derringer vs Deringer

Pistol made by Henry Deringer (Morphy Auctions) U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s not uncommon for brand name objects to assume the role of catch-all term for their generic equivalent. The two most obvious and ubiquitous examples are when you refer to all facial tissues as Kleenex and all cotton swabs as Q-Tips. While not nearly as common in the realm of firearms, the same thing does happen from time to time. That’s the case with the terms “derringer” and “Deringer.” If you didn’t know that there ...

Recommendations? Books/stories to read to elderly dementia patients

I am looking for things to read to someone in the middle stages of dementia who has lost the ability to read on their own. I was thinking short stories, because holding their interest for very long is difficult. And I'm thinking simple, fun, easy to understand stories since mental processing power is no longer a strong point. Does anyone have any suggestions for individual stories or collections of short stories? I would think ideal might be something that could be read in 20 minutes or so -...

Troubleshooting I got a brand new Kindle Keyboard 3G, and it won't turn on after hours of charging.

So I want to verify something someone told me. I was told to leave it charging for 48 hours so the power management chip can reactivate. Is that true, because my window to return it is gonna get real small by then. Also, the amber light is on, but it isn't pulling much power at all, apparently. Does that signify something?

Basically I have downloaded a dictionary (The Oxford Thesaurus - An A-Z Dictionary Of Synonyms by Mansoor Al Matrafi) it's in PDF, I converted it with calibre to mobi but it still wouldn't work, it doesn't function as a dictionary.
