Removing sources in Google News

I am getting news articles on my google news page that are, frankly, homophobic and transphobic. I can't see a way to block these news sources from my Google News page, is there any way to do that? These are not "right of center but mainstream" news sources like WSJ. They're more like Brietbart and Christian Broadcasting News. I suppose it's possible that because I have "religion" as a header for one of my interest areas, they're feeding me what I consider to be extreme religious "news". I did search Askme and it seems like answers to blocking include "no", "don't do that" and many of them are old anyway. As a separate question, I tried finding an email to write to google on their site and even though they have a page titled "contact us" there are no contact emails or forms on that page. Is there a help email for google at all?

I have used the phrase "cold dead hands" in fear of this day.

I'm starting a new job in a few days, and it occurs to me that all the machines in the office will likely be Windows 10. I've never touched Windows 10. Since I've been hired as a senior document processor, this could be a bit problematic. What can I do to learn this OS in 5 days or less? [more inside]

Looping GIF plays only once in email client or browser

I've created an animated GIF in Photoshop for Mac OS X that was set to loop forever. If I view it in Quick Look it loops forever. If I send it to someone in Messages it loop forever, both for me and the recipient. If I send the GIF in an email (Mail app or Gmail web mail) it plays once and doesn't loop. If I open the GIF in a browser (Safari or Chrome) it plays once and doesn't loop. Any way to fix this? [more inside]

How to set up shared folder desktop sync in OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business recently (finally!) implemented shared folder desktop sync - previously you could only sync to your desktop if the folders were created by you but not if they were shared to you. I can't find instructions for setup anywhere despite detailed searching including limiting results to the last month. Any ideas? [more inside]

Help me loop and slow speed a video selection on an ipad

I've been using video tutorials to help me learn songs on guitar. I'm seeking an app that I can use on ipad or iphone that will allow me to import a video file and make a selection with A-B markers, for instance, and have the video play between them. I would also like to have the option to slow the video down if I choose. I know there are apps that allow this with audio but I'm hitting a wall finding such an app for video Do you know of such an app?

Digital content management platform that's free.

Hello, I'm looking for a digital content software that will allow a closed set of contributors post displayable files in a variety of files formats, such as jpeg, PDF, and other common types. Ideally they would be able to tag these posts and comment on them, as well as link them hierarchically to each other. Honestly, it sounds like a private Facebook group might be good for this, but I'm looking for something with a bit more possibility for innovation and that isn't Facebook. [more inside]

Where do people host their wordpress sites these days?

I've been a Dreamhost user since 2002. In the last few years, They've moved me over to virtual servers and my sites (about 10 of them, all pretty low-traffic in the realm of 3-8k visits/site/month) are constantly getting out-of-memory errors. Their tech support has not been helpful and I'm feeling like it's time to move. [more inside]

Help pick a name for a maybe future business?
