Russian Invasion of Ukraine - Russian Forces Retreat From Lyman

Source: New York Times

Here’s what we know:

The loss of the strategic rail hub in the east is particularly poorly timed for the Kremlin after its internationally derided illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions.

Russia’s withdrawal from Lyman comes a day after Putin said he was annexing the region.

Broken glass, blown-out tires and a crater show the violence of a deadly attack in Zaporizhzhia.

At least 24 are dead, including 13 children, in an attack on a convoy in northeastern Ukraine, the authorities say.

Here’s why Russia’s retreat from Lyman matters.

Russia has detained the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant’s director general, its operator says.

Intercepted calls reveal the Russian army in disarray.

I want to create a video tutorial showing screens as I move through the program. S/w ideas?

I have a couple of tutorials that I use to show seniors the steps to use in certain applications.
I would like to “film” (capture) them onto a DVD so they could be shown in our senior center library without me having to conduct the Help session.

1. Want to capture video of going through the screens
2. Would then like to add a voice-over.

I’m pretty good at business applications and even setting up networks. But have never done any video or audio “recording”.

Any software suggestions? Free or reasonable price, please.
I would really appreciate some guidance. A quick search left me overwhelmed with software options and I don’t know enough to evaluate them.

The stupid, it burns! Postal worker came by at 8 PM, delivering districts

And said he was so angry at Biden, it was Biden's fault that worker cutbacks have increased the workload so much.

Told him he should be mad at Louis DeJoy, the Postmaster General, or at Trump who pushed for him.

He said that wasn't the issue at all, it was Biden's budget cuts that were causing this.

Explained that the President has no say in operations.

No use.

Help needed with ".ico" file. Trying to save one to use with a link on my home page.

I have a link to an ".ico" file. Trying to save that file to my thumb drive so that I can install on other users Windows PC's. Haven't done that for years and I thought it was pretty straightforward then. Not so, now.

using Windows 10, to open the link it opens it in MS Paint but .ico is not one of the file types I can "save As".

"Nice state you have here. Be a shame if something happened to it."

Trump with his usual “quid pro quo” to Dem governors. Be nice to me or I won’t let you have what you need.

My 41 yr old son died of a massive heart attack after "severe indigestion".

It wasn’t indigestion, it was the signs of a heart attack.

Why do so many incompetent men become leaders and what can we do about it?


Biologist Explains Biological Sex

Interesting explanation about how biology, hormones, and genetics apply

Just finished "The Fifth Risk" by Michael Lewis. Great book. Well written and very, very interesting

Highly readable, as are all his books. Covers some of the “buried” functions that our government performs and how important they are. Based on real profiles of and interviews with people who work in these functions. I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
It’s really, really interesting and I learned a lot. Didn’t want it to end.

“What would you name as the top 5 risks?
Lewis asks this question to former government employees from the departments of Energy, Agriculture, and Commerce about their agencies.
The former chief risk officer at Energy answers: 1) a broken arrow (a lost or damaged nuclear missile/bomb), 2 and 3) North Korea and Iranian nuclear aggression, 4) the vulnerability of the electrical grid.
It is the 5th risk that Lewis focuses on, and it where the book’s title comes from. That risk is bad project management.
Most of what the government does, as Lewis points out, only makes the news when things go very badly. The real work of government involves dealing with enormously complex challenges that can’t be managed by the market.”

I'm reading Andrew McCabe's book, "The Threat". It's excellent, informative, and very readable.

I highly recommend it. Much more readable than I expected and also much more informative.
I checked out the e-book from my local library.
