" There was one unusual disallowed uses clause which may affect some: "You agree not to use a robot, such as ReGet, GetRight, Go!Zilla, or any similar programs, to download content continuously..." The small-print also points out that the service is for personal, non-commercial use. On the plus side, the refund policy mentions no bandwidth limits or other restrictions. If you want your cash back, just email and ask within the first 45 days. Performance Setting up Anonymizer wasn't difficult, at least on our test Windows system. We downloaded and installed the client and it took care of the tricky bits itself. The client's interface was awkward to use. The main window looks like a regular Windows dialog, but can't be moved it's always in a fixed position at the bottom right of the screen. If you click away on another desktop window the client minimises to your system tray, even if you were doing something.

You've got an Android device, either because you didn't want, or couldn't afford, an iPhone - and in years past that meant you had to live with substandard apps. Thankfully, those days are well and truly over, with reams of great little programs standing toe to toe with the best Apple's App Store has to offer. What's the best phone of 2017? Admittedly, the huge quantity of apps doesn't mean they're all quality - far from it in fact. To make sure you never install a duff app here's our selection of the best you should install right now - each one carefully chosen to ensure you'll have a whole suite of fun, engaging and, dammit, useful apps on your phone or tablet. If you're on the hunt for a new messaging app you could do worse than Google Allo , which has most of the basics plus a few features that you won't get elsewhere. Smart Reply, one of the standout features of Allo, suggests responses to messages and photos, learning how you talk over time, so you can send authentic responses without having to type - though it does seem a little impersonal.

One hundred days is an arbitrary period of time to assess a new presidencyblame FDR and the New Deal for that one. Nonetheless, POLITICO assigned its policy reporting teams to handicap the road ahead for the first 100 days of the Trump administration, identifying the policy ideas, the leaders and the obstacles that will be used to define success or failure of the new White House. HEALTH CARE The vision: Trump has promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which he has repeatedly called a “disaster.” He says he’ll replace it with cheaper and better insurance for “everybody.” But Trump splits with congressional Republicans who want to overhaul Medicare by partially privatizing it. He sides with Republicans on proposals to turn Medicaid, the health care program geared to the poor, into lump-sum state payments — an idea that Democrats abhor. He also wants to allow government health programs to negotiate drug prices, a stance sure to alienate Republicans and the powerful drug lobby.

We've been named in multiple countries around the world as the top 50 employers for women. We've been named in multiple countries as well for best diversity employer We've also extended our environmental programs with ISO 14001 certification not only in Europe but in India and other geographies. We have a commitment to make sure that our impact is positive in everything that we do, which has direct impact to our bottom line. This type of mindset and cultural model has clear implications in the business world. Organizations used to be on the S&P 500 for upwards of 50 years. This is no longer the case. We are moving into a time where companies are going to be lucky to be on that list for a decade max. With that level of unpredictability we feel that it is more critical than ever to focus on corporate responsibility and sustainability in a way that has positive impact and implications on global economies.

Great pressure was thus being placed, by the interviewers, upon each nominee, to increase greatly U.S. ‘defensespending, and to exhibit hostility toward Russia and the other countries that are the standardenemies' in the view of neoconservatives. Regardless of whether Trump wants unlimiteddefensespending (and is merely pretending to want to cut programs like the scandalous F-35), Congress certainly does. Neoconservatism can, very practically, be defined by the nations that it places unquestioningly as being America’s ‘friends’ (Israel, Europeespecially the parts that were formerly communistJapan, and all of the fundamentalist-Sunni Gulf Cooperation Council [Arab monarchy] nations); and as being America’s ‘enemies’ (Russia, Iran, China, and any nation that’s allied with one or more of those three). Nothing that either a ‘friend’ or an ‘enemynation does is actually pertinent to a neoconservative’s national favors or hatreds: each of these nations is permanently what it is; and, for example, Russia being no longer communist and no longer the Soviet Union, doesnt really affect a neoconservative’s hatred of Russia.

This week Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the US, taking over as the least popular head of state in at least forty years, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll . Trump's surprise election victory came at the heels of a controversial campaign, which often relied on xenophobic, misogynistic and divisive rhetoric. More than his contemptuous tone, however, it was Trump's stances on issues such as homeland security, immigration, treatment of minorities, and women's reproductive rights or his attacks on the press that shocked and awed. His proposed programs have resulted in opponents describing him as " authoritarian ," a " tyrant ," and a " unique threat to American democracy ," and propelled some to organize a resistance against his agenda. What this unprecedented level of anxiety belies, however, is that some of Trump's most alarming proposals signal a mere continuity of the Obama administration's policies.

Stylized buttons in notifications are now aligned to the right consistent with other system buttons in dialogs. When you use Win + V to set keyboard focus to a notification, we will now show a white focus rectangle around the X to dismiss button if you tab over to it. We fixed an issue where refreshing a PDF displayed in Microsoft Edge would result in a blank page and you would need to refresh it a second time for the PDF to appear. We’ve updated the alignment of the VPN connect button in the Network flyout to be right-justified and fixed an issue where it was unexpectedly displaying a grey border. We fixed an issue where brightness changes made via Settings > System > Display would unexpectedly revert after closing the Settings app. We updated the WIN+X flyout to say “Apps and Features” instead of “Programs and Features”. We’ve polished the animation when dropping a tile onto another tile in Start in order to create a folder.

Ratings are the currency of TV, and President-elect Donald Trump knows it. A TV star for the past decade and a publicity aficionado long before that, Trump, during his presidential campaign, based his cultural relevance largely on Nielsen numbers. The higher the ratings, the better he was doing. In fact, his fascination with ratings is rivaled only by the most passionate of network executives. Trump has been known to use Twitter to boast when programs or networks hes involved with deliver strong ratings. One of the best produced, including the incredible stage set, in the history of conventions. Great unity! Big T.V. ratings! @KarlRove Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 22, 2016 The first general election debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton set television ratings records. The 84 million who tuned in on Sept. 26, 2016 made it the most-watched televised presidential debate in U.

Admittedly, I think about and like taxes more than the average American. When I do my own tax return or a family members' return, I use a few different tax products and to be perfectly honest, I even consult with a tax professional - actually two or even three. However, not everyone is willing to spend their time, effort, and money on learning more about taxes or testing the accuracy of different programs. Your choice is simple: Either make the investment to do it yourself, or risk making mistakes! If it sounds stressful, risky, or you just don't want to do a lot of reading or researching and you hate double-checking, then read no further - hire a Tax Pro. There are scenarios where you should "go pro" - like having self-employment income, experiencing life changes, paying for extended family care, or determining which credits you qualify for, such as EITC, Child Credits, or Dependent Care.

Doing content marketing well requires commitment on many levels. The same Content Marketing Institute (CMI) study mentioned above shows that 90 percent of the organizations deemed most successful were characterized as extremely committed to content marketing. Thats compared to 37 percent of such commitment from organizations classified as least successful. Were committed, you might be saying, Weve allocated budget and a team to getting this done. Good on you. However, there are a number of dimensions of commitment that need to be attained to maintain a content marketing operation that delivers high value for your customers and your brand. Commitment to Insight It is trite to say, quality matters, but what kind of content actually is good content? Too often the output of content marketing programs is a fire hose of crap across every imaginable channel that people dont actually want.

They are not equipped for students like my daughter. They have no place for students like my daughter. I looked to see what schools there were in the Seattle area for children like my daughter. I found none. I also did this when we lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan - again, there were none. Betsy DeVos supports voucher programs. But even if my daughter could attend the one private school in Seattle for children with mild learning disabilities like dyslexia, ADHD, etc., a $5000 voucher wouldn't pay one-fourth of the tuition. And yet, that's a moot point as they won't take my daughter - she's too disabled. I think I have a good reason to be worried and frustrated by this nominee for Secretary of Education. She does not support public schools, she does not understand basic federal laws protecting students with disabilities, and she does not understand that when it comes to education, students with disabilities have few options.
