The 116th Congress was seated Thursday, with Democrats taking the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives after eight years out of power. The first order of business was electing Rep. Nancy Pelosi to be House speaker for the second time. Within hours of Pelosi taking the speaker's gavel, the House voted to reopen the government without funding for the border wall. But the legislation is considered dead on arrival in the Senate and President Trump has insisted he will veto any legislation that does not include border wall funding.Mr. Trump congratulated Pelosi on her victory in a surprise statement to reporters in the White House briefing room Thursday afternoon. Live updates of the new Congress follow below: House passes bill to reopen the government ...

This will likely go down as the year in which technology, once envisioned as an empowering and equalizing force, finally went headlong down the path toward dystopia and oppression. Our story this summer about Google planning to return to China with censored search at first shocked Silicon Valley, but it was the dark nature of what followed — internal dissent squelched, executives dissembling, Chinese users to be closely tracked — that proved most surprising. Other depressing developments seemed right out of an ominous sci-fi film like “Blade Runner,” whether it was reporting that revealed the National Security Agency’s prowess at voice recognition, Facebook’s plans to use artificial intelligence to predict users’ future behavior, or just how badly ultrawealthy Amazon CEO J

Voting in the 2018 Midterm elections for the House and Senate are well underway, while on the state and local level there are a slew of gubernatorial races and various ballots.

On the off-chance you didn’t realize that today is the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November, the Google app yesterday sent a reminder about Election Day and “where to vote.” That query presents a Knowledge Panel in Search where users can enter their street address to find voting locations and hours, including early voting sites before today.

If you access your new Google Search Console report, specifically the Index Coverage report, you will see a notation around July 14 about a “Google Search Update.” It is not about the big core search algorithm update that happened last week; it is about a system change to the reporting within Google Search Console. Google has noted it upgraded the Index Coverage report to a “new, more accurate system.” I really wish Google hadn’t written “Google Search Update” there because SEOs, webmasters, publishers and site owners are going to be confused about the terminology added to that screen in Google Search Console. This was a reporting update to Google Search Console’s Index Coverage report; this is not about a Google search algorithm update. Between the dates o
