Highly Recommended Start Page (or Home Page) for Your Web Browser

A forte of mine is customizing menu’s and start pages to make myself more productive. One of my favorite start pages (or homepage applications) is Symbaloo. Below you will see a sample of my personal start page using Symbaloo.

What I like is that you can customize this application by using your own icons, can group items together and create tabbed groups. It does take a little bit of learning curve, but once you are set up you will not regret it. I have been using Symbaloo for years and my wife loves it. The only negative is the advertisement to the side, but you will get used to it and is only a minor annoyance. Symbaloo also works great on a smartphone, tablet, and chromebook; AND, you can get a browser extension that will assist with collecting your favorite sites.

LIVE MAP by John Hopkins to track global cases of the Coronavirus COVID-19

Background regarding the origins of the Coronavirus (see below) and Map Link — CLICK HERE to track the current status of the virus…

On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of an outbreak of “pneumonia of unknown cause” detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China – the seventh-largest city in China with 11 million residents. As of January 23, there are over 800 cases of 2019-nCoV confirmed globally, including cases in at least 20 regions in China and nine countries/territories. The first reported infected individuals, some of whom showed symptoms as early as December 8, were discovered to be among stallholders from the Wuhan South China Seafood Market. Subsequently, the wet market was closed on Jan 1. The virus causing the outbreak was quickly determined to be a novel coronavirus. On January 10, gene sequencing further determined it to be the new Wuhan coronavirus, namely 2019-nCoV, a betacoronavirus, related to the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome virus (MERS-CoV) and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome virus (SARSCoV). However, the mortality and transmissibility of 2019-nCoV are still unknown, and likely to vary from those of the prior referenced coronaviruses.

Newsprompt Brings You Top Stories From Around The World

Newsprompt is a news aggregation service that I happened across that I think is a keeper. I could not find much information on this service, but you can either go directly to the site or you can set it up through the Google Chrome store as a “new tab” browser extension. In my case I saved the site as a bookmark. There appears to be no sign-in required; however, you can customize what news you would like to see. I am assuming the customization settings are maintained through your browser settings (i.e. cookies). Anyhow, good option for getting the news…

Newsprompt brings to you top stories from around the world and personalized recommendations just for you right in your new tab. Newsprompt delivers highly personalized content without you having to change any settings or customization. From the sports team you follow or the celebrity you love or the company that interests you, get the latest updates for all the stuff that you care about.

Earth View – A Google Collection of the Most Striking Landscapes Found On Earth

When visiting the Earth View site, move your mouse pointer to the top or side of the screen to make the various controls visible. These satellite landscape views make awesome wallpaper backgrounds. There is even a mode called “Leanback Mode” where it will automatically go through the thousands of landscape views as a slideshow.

Earth View is a collection of thousands of the most striking landscapes found in Google Earth. Humans have only been able to see the planet from space for the last 50 years. Yet something encoded in us long ago reacts when we see the world at this unprecedented scale. The enchanted and sometimes surreal landscapes of Earth View have the ability to elevate our minds from our tiny screens to outer space. Hopefully, this can also move us to care more deeply about our fragile planet.
