The EU is a very woody carrot, but though it is mostly stick, it is all the carrot the remainers have. I actually think it is a spanking wooden spoon that was used to stir carrot soup.

I've raised a few times (heh heh) my annoyance that gospel library takes a wake lock (or screen lock) when active.

I've even offered to donate to charity as an incentive to prioritise configuration of this feature, but with no effect. (It used to be configurable in earlier releases).

Could it at least release that lock when a low-battery state is reached so that gospel library doesn't entirely drain what is left in the battery?

"When my ISP increased the bandwidth to my house several years ago (at no cost, without warning me), they made my service much worse, as the usual bottleneck moved from the broadband link (where I had bufferbloat controlled using SQM) to WiFi in my home router. Suddenly, my typical lag became worse by more than a factor of ten, without having touched anything I owned and having double the bandwidth!"
The Blind Men And The Elephant Bufferbloat is responsible for much of the poor performance seen in the Internet today and causes latency (called “lag” by gamers), triggered even by your own routine web browsing and video playing. But bufferbloat’s causes…

Oppressed? Woman has always had power. Consider the eternal paradigm: only after Eve convinced Adam to eat the fruit did mankind fall. I.e., man does anything to make woman happy, even if it's in defiance of God. There’s power for ya! Without a decent womankind, mankind is lost. As Mae West said, "When women go wrong men go right after them!"

I’ve known women who fell for this creed in their youth who now, in their fifties and sixties, cry themselves to sleep decades of countless nights grieving for the children they'll never have and the ones they coldly murdered because they were protecting the empty loveless futures they now live with no way of going back.  “Where are my children?  Where are my grandchildren?" they cry to me.

"Your sister's books destroyed my sister's life!"  I've heard numerous times. "She was happily married with four kids and after she read those books, walked out on a bewildered man and didn't look back."  The man fell into despairing rack and ruin. The children were stunted, set off their tracks, deeply harmed; the family profoundly dislocated and there was “no putting Humpty-Dumpty together again.”

Karen Straughan's analysis of the things that Peterson couldn't say because he was a man, or couldn't see because he was a man.

Follow the link for more. Extract:

The journey of Lehi and his family out of Jerusalem and into the promised land is a type. It describes a spiritual process undertaken by every one of us.

* Leave Jerusalem before you die in it
* Struggle in the wilderness for a while
* Rest in the land Bountiful, provided to you for the sacred work of constructing a vessel
* Build the ship according to God's instructions with the tools you have
* Sail over the ocean, braving the storms and troubles
* Reach the shore of the promised land, leave the boat and walk up the shore
* Bring the Kingdom of God into the world - a New Jerusalem, Zion.

Scott Adams suggests that Cathy Newman was not dishonest, but literally hallucinating as an effect of cognitive dissonance.

This is not the gender bias you were looking for.

"Results revealed a 2:1 preference for women by faculty of both genders across both math-intensive and non–math-intensive fields, with the single exception of male economists, who showed no gender preference."

$100 : 100 day challenge feature incentive:

1. Give Gospel Library the option for Android screen to go off as it normally would, probably with the intermediate dimming screen before it goes off (as is normal). (Probably means not holding the bright lock).
2. Also allow option for Android screen to also go off as normal when playing audio only.

I'll donate up to $100 to Foyer de Sion Orphanage in Haiti when
a. this feature is released to beta
and
b. is scheduled for the next regular release.

I'll deduct $1 for each day it takes; so if it takes 30 days to meet these conditions, I'll donate $70. The clock starts at midnight GMT tonight, at the start of the 16th Jan 2018.

I'll make the payment on the actual release. but calculate the amount based on when conditions a & b are met for features 1 & 2

If only feature 1 is met I'll make a reduced payment at my discretion.

On my honour, I'm the judge as to whether or not the feature requirements have been met.

If the feature is withdrawn again (it used to exist) after I've made the donation, then I'll go Seal Clubbing in Alaska.
