President Trump embarks on 17-day vacation


PUBLISHED Sat, August 05, 2017 - 9:34am EDT


President Donald Trump departed for a 17-day "working vacation" at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Friday. While he's gone, the White House is getting some TLC. The minute Trump leaves, workers will begin around-the-clock renovations to the West Wing. These include structural repairs to address a ceiling leak, HVAC work and repairs to the South Portico steps on the South Lawn. Additionally, renovations to the Navy Mess kitchen, the West Wing lower lobby, the IT system and generic cosmetic upgrades including fresh paint, carpet and curtains will be completed before his return later this month.

 1 yr   Yahoo built a special scanning tool to view emails for the government

              According to a report from Reuters, starting in 2015, all of the emails Yahoo users received were being searched for a particular set of characters at the request of the security state in an unprecedented real-time wiretap of email. Reuters's Joseph Menn reports that three sources, two of which are former Yahoo employees, have confirmed that Yahoo built a custom tool to scan "hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI." The government was apparently looking for emails that contained a certain "set of characters." One can only assume that there must have been something alarming to have warranted this kind of government request.
