In another window, looking up Lauren Jiloty a row of photos show an attractive smiling woman who could be mistaken for model. The first entries are about Hillary's email. The very first link to the Guardian "Hillary Clinton: the best of her emails"
That article lists.
* Hillary having trouble hanging up a fax machine
* A coat Hillary bought in Kabul and wore when visiting later
* Twittering in the Secretary's name
* Call Sarah and ask if she can get me some iced tea.
* Decoding diplomatic Jargon P5+1 and E3+3 (E=Europe, +US, China, Russia same as P5+1
* Apples for personal use.
* White House standing up Hillary. She was told there would be a meeting, she shows up but no meeting. She frets that Kissinger met with Nixon every day but she meets with O only once a week
* Surreal message from senator Barbara Mikulski (all about being a woman)
So then, all ordinary things, nothing damaging, nothing juicy, just ordinary inconsequential emails. Presumably these were all to Lauren Jiloty although that's not stated, presumed because it is first result under her name, she is never mentioned in this Guardian article.
So apparently this is who Jiloty is and by Guardian standards the most interesting among Hillary's emails.
Back to Wikileaks and the email I'm looking at, the article in the Economist that Hillary sent to Jiloty, It is a good article, but hardly a "must read."
I'm always disappointed in those. Now, someone says, "must read" is fair assurance I can do fine without reading it. This is such because we know all this already.
The article is about the tsunami that wiped out the nuclear facility and the effect it had on Japanese society and their response to it, and what might come of that. The article compliments Japanese civility, their observed habits, the awe this inspired in the rest of the world. It reviews their history in social terms stating that large events do have long lasting effects that change their society, a 1923 earthquake turned the country to militarism, the US dropping the atomic bomb on them turned their society to peaceful growth. The nuclear disaster may restore confidence while demanding corrections to secretive systems of governance, it may lead to political reform, and so on.
The thing that caught my attention though is the opening sentence. This is a small thing, sorry, nothing damaging to Hillary to report, just a matter of my own picayune interest, the author, Burns Strider begins, Japan's hydra-headed disaster, the fallout (see what he did there?) Some natural disasters change history, Japan's tsunami may be one.
That "tsunami" is one of the few Japanese words in global use points to the country's familiarity with natural disaster.Oh really? See? I told you it cannot be an actual "must read." The author doesn't know what he's talking about.
Seems there are a lot more loanwords from Japan than that at least in English. I can list several off the top of my head.
[loanwords from Japan] The search must be worded just so or else you get words adapted by Japan from other languages, those words are called gairaigo in Japanese.
I think we know all of these.

There are a lot more at Wikipedia, but I don't know those. I picked out the common ones. The others don't seem so common to me as these.
