    @Troy No, the Kindle handles Amazon's ebook format, Mobi. Kobo uses the open format Epub. Epub is not Kobo's epub is for anyone to use, Kobo reads epub and pdf's. Kindle read Mobi and pdf. That is what i meant about amazon. They knew being first to have an ereader, they had a chance to use their own ebook format exclusively. Epub was made and is used mostly throughout the industry. But in the usa, the market of amazon pulls toward mobi while outside the usa it is epub.

    Hello Mel! I cannot find the thread where you offered my wife and I some suggestions re: an editor last year. I thanked you then and thank you again. We did find an Editor right here in Panama, where we live and she did a great job. Here's our website: Clandestine-Life.com We will soon self-publish as an ebook. Very soon. Thanks to you and to Troy. He was also quite helpful to us.

    Allow me to share an essay by my wife and me published on Medium.com.. How The Lies America Has Told To Herself About Herself Paved the Way for Accepting Trump’s Lies https://medium.com/@damaniwvk/how-the-lies-america-has-told-to-herself-about-herself-paved-the-way-for-accepting-trumps-lies-89b2c67a6f31?source=friends_link&sk=f8e1c923ddce61098dbe8d37fd56dd6a Damani

    @Pioneer1 this sounds wrong, historically inaccurate, on its face. Perhaps a Biblical historical scholar like @Chevdove can lend a hand. I'm not familiar with the Freud's "Moses and Monotheism," but help me understand why we should care about what Freud has to say about the origins of Christianity?

    @Delano I see you got the news before I did. Still, unless it is revealed that 45 raped and murdered a baby, no one thinks the senate will boot him from office. Do I need to create another count down clock?

    When we can compare oranges to apples we can rightfully compare women to men and it's not bad for women. The problem began when women not knowing her role tried to step into his role. Women seek men stronger physically, but to compliment the man she maybe wiser it is how we even one another out. It one of the mysteries women are trying to figure out.

    That is what I have to figure out before I can sell eBooks -- even if it means few authors will take advantage of the option and fewer readers will purchase these types of ebooks. There many authors, usually the selfhelp type, who seem to do well selling their own ebooks. I'll look into what technology the are using nowadays.

    Movement, The stride, the ride, the existence of the curvature of the spine. The dip, the crawl, the spin into the slide. The catch right before the fall, tossing the world to tumble into the trap, where the spin is the ending to the dance as the eyes bounce and the fingers curl and the tips of the toes are a gift to the world. The box trot that takes the tap, as jazz became each man’s picks of how she would describe her wish, which is where he found her standing at. The clap of hands, the bending of backs, the swirl into the sambo, a frontal attack. The jumping jacks while the melody unfolds and all engage in the poetic movement both young and old. The flexing of knees, extending of arms, touching of elbows while setting off alarms. No foul, no harm, no siting it out, in the movement the wallflower is not allowed. The elegance in the eyes of the silhouettes song where partners are graceful and oblivious to the perils of the rights that can go tenderly go wrong. The two step into the floss of time where rock was the music that settled young minds. The blues and rap where stripping thoughts away in the vibrant description that ease stressful day. The lifting of skirts and dropping of pants. The mambo a soulful movement designed to entrance. The bounce before we ignore caution as we play, because it’s in the movement we stay living and to be alive is the movements we make every day. Keep moving.

    Fire Passion Heat. Coal, the doorway to the soul It only takes one match to ignites an infernos glow What is done is done to reach the fanatical domicile that fear controls What is left behind but ash like cinders that embrace the wind as it blows to and fro Kindling the energy that fuels and intensifies. Dry resources the catalyst that leave nothing to compromise. Yet it is essential to contain the flames that blazes red dancing blue and gold in contrast to the jumping embers Yes there is beautiful in the mist of the scorch as it lay waste to unopened gifts that are the hangman’s noose called out as remorse Caution made friends with a destructive moment where the burn left eternal marks as evidence that cleanse the smoke cloud filled by memories that took the flicker by surprise Harmless is distant when escape is the seat that captivates with allure as the destructive purge that is the melody of the scald that had he mesmerized. The heat came only to wake she up, the choke from the smoke was but a signal to his dreams to please stand up. The cravings are courage-burning sleep to the ground and the spirit came to filter out doubt, your visions are calling you out, it is amidst the burn that the diamond is actually brought out. Fire

    I never said it was "non-event." I never even said it wasn't treason. All I'm asserting is that he will serve out his term. Even the Democratic speaker of the house does not want to impeach. Surely Nancy, who knows more about the subject than both of us, has good reasons.

    Right, but nothing you shared explains how do you make the leap from Musaeus to Musa (who is Musa anyway) then to Moses.

    Kareem California was an open-carry state until 1967 when former GOP god before Trump, Ronald Reagan, signed the Mulford Act into law as governor, banning open carry. He had the full backing of the NRA. He did so specifically to disarm the Black Panther Party of Self-Defense and stop their armed Copwatch patrol and stop them from walking around with their guns. On top of what you said, it's also my understanding that what really pushed him for this action was the Panthers storming the California legislative assembly.

    It is interesting that is how you interpreted my comments. Lets not start with Fox News as a source, for what should be obvious reasons. Besides polls have nothing to do with the laws and process for removing a sitting president.

    Excellent information! North Africa wasn't always a desert. Much of it was lush tropical wetland before the major wars that destroyed many of it's ancient cities. The Taureg are one of many African ethnic groups who are native to North Africa or came out of ancient Kemet and were in that land for thousands of years BEFORE the arrival of the Caucasians (Arabs, Persians, Assyrians, Amazigh, ect....) I personally believe that just about ALL African peoples on the continent have their origins in ancient Kemet and can be traced back to one of the 42 "tribes" of that great kingdom. They all share some aspects of ancient Kemetic science, language, and social customs.

    cool @Mel Hopkins if you are on writing life, let me know. I have placed books on overdrive, placed books overseas. you have to comprehend, kobo lists books based on the language in different geographies. Tell me what you think of my Nyotenda :) it is a screenplay, but that is a whole other multilog:)

    WOW! I will have to get my mind right to watch this. I remember when I worked at a shipyard, how some of the men told me to look at certain areas, and THERE in plain sight were gigantic metal signs still propped up or leaning in corners that read WHITE'S ONLY and COLOREDS ONLY. I was so stunned. some of the men were older and said that they remember how it was in those days. I heard a lot of stories... about those times but now, it seems like we have reversed and are back to those very days. Anyway, thank you for posting this.

    @Pioneer1 Before I address everything else, I want to point out another black cop story. "Officer" Gerald Goines (Houston) shot and killed two white people in a raid last month. He was IMMEDIATELY charged with murder. https://abcnews.go.com/US/houston-police-officer-gerald-goines-charged-counts-murder/story?id=65165276 I don't want to keep beating this horse. But I think its foolish for black people to join these imperial gangs. We all know if Goines was white, he would be sitting at home on paid vacation. Is what it is. You don't need a permit in Arizona to open-carry. In fact you don't even need a permit to conceal-carry in AZ. I don't even bother with their little "2nd Amendment." I own several firearms and never had a background check. All private sales, which is legal in Arizona. You and I both know laws in the USA are fickle at best. Further all so-called "gun control" has ALWAYS been about keeping guns away from black people. California was an open-carry state until 1967 when former GOP god before Trump, Ronald Reagan, signed the Mulford Act into law as governor, banning open carry. He had the full backing of the NRA. He did so specifically to disarm the Black Panther Party of Self-Defense and stop their armed Copwatch patrol and stop them from walking around with their guns. In other words, white people will sacrifice their precious "2nd Amendment" laws allowing open carry to ensure black people ONLY use firearms to kill each other; not for protecting themselves against imperial government.
