A San Diego valedictorian took the opportunity to shred apart adults at her school in her commencement speech. San Ysidro High School's graduating senior Nataly Buhr called out her guidance counselor for leaving her to "fend for herself," the school's office staff for their "negligence," and one of her teachers for being "regularly intoxicated."

The speech Buhr delivered was not the one she submitted for approval before graduation, Rubio added.

Theoretically, there’s never been an easier time for marketers. The ubiquity of social media means a good word – or a good brand – can spread like wildfire with very little effort. But as limitless as the internet is, there’s a lot of competition and noise to contend with. And the vast graveyard of failed […]

When it comes to passwords, there’s no such thing as paranoia. You want them secure and complex, and you definitely don’t want to repeat them on all your accounts. The trouble is, the internet seems to keep growing. And so do those accounts. Just one lockout from an important email or banking site is enough […]
