[Kobo] "update reading progress" suddenly not working?

up until yesterday, whenever I connected my device to Calibre, it would automatically start updating the reading progress, and would show me the books whose progress had changed, then offer to synch them on Goodreads.

Fading Beauty . . .

For almost a month the amaryllis have bloomed and bloomed -- thirteen blossoms on three stems -- and now they are fading. Delicate petal edges crumple inward and colors grow more nuanced. Another few days and I'll move the bulbs into the bed in the greenhouse in hopes of an eventual glorious resurrection. Along with the pleasure their beauty has given us, has been the delight of hearing Josie say Ama-RILL-us! [Author: Vicki Lane]

Group news items from the same source

In Calibre News view, how can you customize the view to visually group multiple news items from the same source? For example, say you download daily from the the New York Times. You end up with multiple dated New York Times items in your News view; it gets cluttered over time. It would be handy to be able to create a custom view that groups all news items from the same source. ETA: Here's a screenshot showing the problem of multiple dated entries from different sources.

Keep Telling Your Members of Congress to Oppose “Universal” Background Check Bills

Opinion Universal Background Checks Don’t Work, so Why Do We Want More of Them? Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On January 8, 2019, two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called “universal” background checks.
