Severe burn damage from California wildfires seen from space

https://www.livescience.com/california-wildfire-damage-2020.html

I adopted an adult cat awhile back and am besotted by her. Only problem is...

in her last home, she was let outdoors anytime she wanted. In my home, that's not an option-- she is and has been an indoor cat since I brought her home (it's been a year and a half). The closest she comes to seeing the outdoors is when I prop open the front door or open the patio door (both doors having screens) so she can look out.

She is going on eight years old.

I remember reading somewhere that it's cruel to keep a previously indoor/outdoor cat strictly indoors. I guess I was hoping that she'd adapt. Lately she seems quiet and rather lethargic, which concerns me. I know cats get depressed (I've have friends who have had depressed cats and they were put on an antidepressant by the vet).

I guess my question is: am I being cruel to insist she stays inside? Where I live there are coyotes and raccoons, as well as cruel little boys who like to hurt animals.

I have lost cats in the past by giving them outdoor access and I really don't want to go through that again.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks

8 Tips to Stay Sane in the Final 15 Days if the Campaign -- Five ThirtyEight

We’re in the final stretch of the campaign, with just 15 days to go until the election. Indeed, “the election” is something of a misnomer, since early or mail voting is already underway in most states and about 30 million people have already cast ballots.

This is a period of high anxiety for almost everybody. So here are a few tips on how to process news and polls over the final two weeks. I’m going to keep these fairly short and sweet; we’ll save the more philosophical stuff about election forecasting, etc., for elsewhere.

Is anyone else having problems with watching videos on YouTube?

I can no longer watch videos because now they run in fits and starts and that round disk is constantly turning so it's really impossible to access videos, which I could do 3-4 days ago.
