Make no mistake, we are at war

Twenty years ago, during the Reagan administration, I encountered a young producer at National Public Radio who said she and her husband had decided not to have children because they were convinced they'd die in a nuclear war.

Immediately, I told her, ''Please, have children. There's not going to be a nuclear war.'' I have no idea what she did.

Today, I might give the same advice, but not so swiftly. Children born into the 21st century face a far more perilous future than those in the 20th century - partly because adults now seem to lack the courage and wisdom to protect them.

There are too many couples not having kids

In Europe and Russia, and all because of birth control. I wonder what will happen if these countries eventually collapse.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
