Though deprived of his big online megaphones, Trump does have alternative options of much smaller reach, led by the far right-friendly Parler — even if Google removed it from its app store Friday and Apple threatened the same. Trump may launch his own platform...

Can you hack yourself happy? Five DIY health crazes put to the test

From cold baths to burning sage, there’s a self-improvement hack for everything. But do they work? This is a productivity fad that has become popular with Silicon Valley types, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
