What was likely intended to be a quick smash-and-grab property crime turned into a nightmare for three Florida men last week when the homeowner defended the private property by opening fire on the intruders, authorities say.
Rather than walk away with someone elses belongings and before they had the chance to potentially harm anyone, two of them were shot one fatally. The third was quickly arrested
I have a PowerPoint presentation done in Windows that I want to play in a loop on an iPad. I know how to save it as a .ppsx file but it play on the iPad. I tried saving it as a .mp4 - no luck there either.
I'll start ...

A heck of a lot of Lets Go Brandon being worn by young people.

I agreed to help a friend's 4th grader with math.
She is doing okay, her parents want to be in the advanced program.
Met with her teacher - he thinks she is where she should be.
Working on angles and number patterns now.
Any advice or interesting exercises?
I taught college for eight years and 20 years of teaching engineers and network folks - very different audience.
Thanks in Advance,
The FBI conducted nearly 3 million background checks associated with the sale, transfer or permitting of firearms in April, making it the fourth highest month for background checks since the bureau began keeping statistics in 1998, according to new data released by the agency.
Figures from April were down from the record-shattering spike of 3.7 million FBI background checks in March 2020, but still higher than checks done in the first two months of the year.
The states with the highest number of background checks conducted were Illinois, Kentucky, Texas, Florida and California.
Under US law, federally licensed gun dealers must run checks on every buyer, whether a purchase is made in a store or at a gun show. A buyer presents his or her identification to the seller, fills out a form from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), which lists the buyer's age, address, race, and any criminal history and then the seller submits the information to the FBI for checks against databases in order to ensure a criminal record does not preclude the purchase.
So, what will the gun-banners say when the gun violence rate doesn't increase?
"A Queens grandmother is crediting her smartwatch for saving her life.
Marie Bourque, 74, woke up in the middle of the night in October with an alert from her Apple Watch buzzing her wrist, informing her of an irregular heartbeat. She immediately got herself to the hospital an act that saved her from a potential stroke or heart attack, had she waited too much longer."
My Apple watch is absolutly amazing - I can't imagine being without mine!!!
California Supreme Court says law requiring presidential candidates to turn over tax returns is inva
"The California Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously ruled the state's new law that requires presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns for the previous five years to get on the ballot is invalid."

If we can't get this done in CA, it doesn't look promising for the rest of the country.
Of course, I expected it to be upheld and Trump would simply ignore the state since he had no chance of winning it.
I really didn't expect a unanimous ruling on this.
Any ideas on how they can amend this to pass scrutiny?
