House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 election felt like "a mule kicking you in the back" and convinced her to remain in politics, according to an upcoming biography. Assured that the Democratic contender Hillary Clinton would prevail over her GOP rival, Pelosi had an eye on retiring and spending more time with her family, according to the book written by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page. But despite her confidence that she would be able to step down after 30 years in Congress and no longer hold the distinction of being, at that time, the highest-ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government, she described her visceral shock when Trump had won. She told the author that the feeling "was physical; it was actually physical," adding that it was "like a mule kicking you in the back over and over again." "I was like, 'How could it be that person is going to be president of the United States?'" Pelosi said, according to … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi Was Set To Retire From Politics Before Trump Election Win in 2016: New Book

When I was 16, I spent a summer studying Spanish in Spain. Armed with a pocket-sized Spanish-English electronic dictionary—high-tech at the time— I stumbled through the country. Now language translation apps for smartphones can do much, much more than that old plastic device with the rubbery buttons and one-line display. Many of them let you speak or type a question in English and have that instantly translated into a foreign tongue, which the app can speak out loud or display on the phone’s screen. A response from a local can be translated right back into English for you. A single app may include the ability to translate dozens of languages—more than a backpack full of dictionaries. I put these promising features to the test by heading into Korean, Chinese, and Japanese neighborhoods in San Francisco with three translation apps—two on the iPhone and one that works on the iPhone or Android phones. The results were mixed. It’s quicker to use these apps than to look up words in a … [Read more...] about Apps That Keep You From Getting Lost in Translation

Email was invented in 1971 and has changed very little since then. In that time, it’s managed to become a major security risk to individuals, governments, and private companies around the world. This might explain the rising popularity of so-called “secure email” providers. So what exactly makes secure email different from regular email? What Is Secure, Encrypted Email? Secure email is essentially regular email with a few security enhancements on top. The technology behind the scenes is ultimately the same, which means that you already know how to use a secure email provider. You still send messages to named addresses with an @ and a domain, and you still get plenty of spam. For that reason, anyone can call themselves a secure email provider. There’s no dictionary definition, and most major email providers like Gmail and Outlook would also consider themselves “secure” despite falling short of the mark. Most providers who use the term to describe their service go much … [Read more...] about What Is Secure Email, and Should You Switch?
