On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

GM to cut more than 1,000 US jobs tied to small cars 14.4.2018 General News
General Motors will cut more than 1,000 jobs in the US tied to production of sedans that are in low demand, the automaker said today. The cuts will affect GM's factory in Lordstown, Ohio, where the biggest US automaker produces the Chevrolet Cruze. Sales of the vehicle have dropped 32 per cent in the last four years, the company said, part of a broader trend in the US that has seen consumers ignore small cars in favour of sports utility vehicles and larger "crossover" cars amid low gasoline prices and a recovering economy. The Ohio plant, which currently employs around 3,000 people, has built cars in two shifts. The ramp-down follows an "historic" shift in the market, a GM spokeswoman said in an email. "As we look at the market for compact cars in 2018 and beyond, we believe a more stable operating approach to match market demand is a one-shift schedule," the spokeswoman said. "Consequently, we will suspend the second shift of production at Lordstown late in the second quarter of ...
