What's up with Google Earth?

I have/had Google Earth on this laptop for several years. It worked fine and I used it regularly to snoop around and measure distances etc. Suddenly, about 3 weeks ago it quit working...would not boot...nothing. Then tried to download it again etc. Nothing working.

I read that Google discontinued the support and program and there were others offering similar programs.

Is there anything to this or is it just my own problem? If I need another program which is best?

Is the Transgender in the Army thing over with already?

Was that just Trump sleeptweeting or what?

Tell the Senate: Torture memo author Steven Bradbury has no place in government

https://act.credoaction.com/sign/steven_bradbury?sp_ref=323665161.4.181748.f.579940.2&referring_akid=.800173.lUYzBC&source=fb_share_sp


During his time in the Bush administration, Steven Bradbury gave the legal thumbs-up to a harrowing list of torture methods Ė waterboarding, nudity, striking prisoners, exposure to extreme temperatures, dousing with cold water, sleep deprivation for more than seven days, cramped conditions and using these tactics in combination.2 While the military has a longstanding prohibition on torture, Bradbury concluded its policies didnít apply to the CIA.3 His decisions were later overturned, and the Department of Justiceís ethics office would later issue a report citing "serious concerns about some of his analysis."4

Trump might think the public wonít notice if he sneaks Bradbury into an agency mostly unrelated to his prior work. But this attempt to rehabilitate Bradbury and allow him back into public service is not acceptable. No one who promotes and defends torture is qualified to work in our government.

In fact, Bradbury's 2008 nomination to serve as the head of the Office of Legal Counsel was blocked by senators because of concerns with his role in torture and surveillance and whether he could be sufficiently independent of the White House.5 The Senate needs to use their confirmation power again to make sure torture promoter Steven Bradbury is never in a position of government power again.

Tell the Senate: Block and resist Trumpís nomination of torture policy architect Steven Bradbury.
