Trump's new Mexico envoy stirs hornet's nest with Frida Kahlo jab

Trump's new Mexico envoy stirs hornet's nest with Frida Kahlo jabThe new U.S. ambassador to Mexico has taken aim at Mexican icon Frida Kahlo for her support of Marxism, stirring up a fierce social media debate with a tweet asking if the painter had not been aware of atrocities committed in the name of that ideology.

These two Alexa-enabled smart thermostats cost way less than Google’s Nest

Remember how exciting it was when the first Nest Learning Thermostat came out? Holy moly it can adjust your temperature automatically based on your habits and preferences! It'll save you so much money! Those features are still compelling, of course, but they're no longer advantages for the Nest. Rivals have caught up with the Nest, and even surpassed it in some ways. But the biggest blow is the fact that rival offerings are so much more affordable.

In this post you'll find two smart thermostats that are as good or even better than Nest, but they cost much less. One is the 2nd-generation Ecobee3 Thermostat with Sensor, which is on sale for $ 50 off right now on Amazon. Then you've got the even more affordable Sensi Smart Thermostat, which is even cheaper. And best of all, both models work with Amazon Alexa!
