Gun Rights Are Women’s Rights, Join Our WomXn’s March

Gun Rights Are Women's Rights Colorado – -(AmmoLand.com)- Why do the same politicians who claim to support women's rights want to take away a woman's right to defend herself with a firearm? Saturday, January 19th, 10am, is the nationwide WomXn's March (the X is apparently to be MORE inclusive, which we assume means even us too!). Well, gun rights ARE women's rights – and we're going to join the Denver march to let them know just that! Anyone is welcome to join us under our banner…we're non-pa...

CTL Announces $300 Rugged Chromebook Tablet for the Education Market

The Chromebook Tablet (seriously though, why can’t get rid of the “book” in that title?) education revolution is here. Acer started it, ASUS got in on it, and now CTL is getting in the game. Here’s the skinny. You’d be forgiven if your first thought was “…who is CTL?,” because honestly, they’re not as well known as some of the other companies that are active in the Chrome OS market. Still, they make some fantastic Chromebooks and Chromeboxes (see, we don’t say “Chromebook Desktop,” so why aren’...

How to Change How Excel Displays Negative Numbers

Microsoft Excel displays negative numbers with a leading minus sign by default. It is good practice to make negative numbers easy to identify, and if you’re not content with this default, Excel provides a few different options for formatting negative numbers. Excel provides a couple of built-in ways to display negative numbers, and you can also set up custom formatting. Let’s dive in. Change to a Different Built-In Negative Number Option One thing to note here is that Excel will display diff...

Other Fiction Bremer, Fredrika: Nina. V1 [German] 16.1.2019

Die hierzulande so gut wie unbekannte schwedische Autorin Fredrika Bremer, die den Roman "Nina" im Jahre 1835 in ihrer Heimat erstveröffentlichte, genießt in Schweden den Status einer Initiatorin der nationalen Frauenemanzipation, und durch Übersetzung ihrer Werke ins Englische fanden diese im gesamten angelsächsischen Sprachraum einen bemerkenswerten Widerhall, was 1851 sogar dazu führte, dass ein County im US-Staat Iowa ihr zu Ehren den Namen "Bremer County" erhielt. Wenn man "Nina" heute mit...

There are sofas past and present that are priced upward of $60K, but in our book, expense alone does not merit quality.

Oyinkan Braithwaite’s serial-killer thriller: would you help your murderer sister?

The Nigerian author’s darkly comic debut novel, My Sister, the Serial Killer, has become a literary sensation. She explains her struggle with the moral ambiguity of her writingWhen Oyinkan Braithwaite sent an early draft of her debut novel to a few friends, one of them told her it was the best thing she had ever written. “I was offended,” Braithwaite says, her voice heavy with irony. “I knew how I had written it.” She might not have thought much of it at the time, but this quick draft ended up u...

Firearms Regulation Always Misses the Target

Gun Confiscation U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The mass murderer at the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas used something called a bump stock. In theory, a bump stock allows a gun to fire faster. Some politicians say that is too fast. In fact, the fastest shooter alive today fires a semi-automatic gun so quickly that it rivals some machine guns. Government regulators, and some anti-gun Democrat politicians, then concluded that civilians should be denied the use of all semi-automatic weapons. They cl...

U.S. Judge Rules Fingerprint, Face Unlock Are Protected Just Like Passwords

The Fifth Amendment of the US constitution forbids police from forcing you to disclose your phone’s PIN or password, but courts have ruled that protection doesn’t apply to a fingerprint or face unlock. Now, that might be changing. Here’s how it went down: a warrant was filed in Oakland requesting a raid and seizure of personal property, which included access to all mobile devices—even ones that are locked with biometric data. But a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of C...

In the face of such ridicule, why would any sane women run for office?

The recent election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress has evoked a fair amount of ridicule among persons taken aback by her youth and ideology. She is the “telegenic it girl of the left” according to Daily Beast columnist Matt Lewis. CNBC notes that she has only $7,000 in savings; this is a millennial who is so financially irresponsible that she cannot afford an apartment in D.C. until her first congressional paycheck. And because she wears “that jacket and coat [she] don’t look like a gir...

HP and NVIDIA Made the $5000, 65-inch Monitor Your $5000 Desktop Deserves

The cheekily-named “BFGD” program—for “Big Format Gaming Display,” and nothing else—was announced at CES 2018, a full year ago. We expected these overpowered, gamer-friendly screens to hit shelves before the end of that year. The wait was worth it. Technically, the HP Omen X Emperium 65 is only a “display,” not a TV—a distinction required in the US because it lacks a tuner for over-the-air TV programming. But what it lacks in rabbit ears it makes up in every other category. Looking at it purely...

DEEP WAR by David Poyer – Review

Opinion DEEP WAR by David Poyer USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- My first David Poyer book was Hunter Killer.

So, I found the book Onslaught that was written just before Hunter Killer, wanting to get a better grasp of the main characters. The author of these books is Captain David Poyer, US Navy retired.

How women really got the vote

In 2018 we commemorated property-owning women over the age of 30 getting the vote in the United Kingdom. Two years later we will mark 100 years since all women received the vote in the United States.These are important parliamentary milestones but the lauding of campaigners has given priority to organised women’s movements in gaining the vote. This edges women’s suffrage off the main stage of world politics and makes it a pressure group issue; interesting enough in its way, but of no great conse...
