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.

If you need to access any data, email me: subbu at newsrack.in

Will a Biden administration be able to reverse Trump’s climate damage? 30.9.2020 Business Operations | GreenBiz.com
Will a Biden administration be able to reverse Trump’s climate damage? Hannah Murphy Wed, 09/30/2020 - 01:00 This story originally appeared in Rolling Stone  and is republished here as part of Covering Climate Now, a global journalistic collaboration to strengthen coverage of the climate story. When he talks about the Trump administration, David Doniger likes to say: "Imagine where we’d be if they knew what they were doing." The climate lawyer and senior adviser to the NRDC Action Fund spends his days defending the environment from the U.S. government, and for the past 3.5 years, that’s meant a front-row seat to the Trump administration’s relentless attacks on any regulation that’s meant to slow the  climate crisis .  But it’s also been a window into the hasty, sloppy and legally dubious ways that it's gone about it. "One of the hallmarks of this administration is how incompetently they’re doing this," says Doniger. "It shows up in how slowly they’ve been able to work, and how flimsy their legal ...

Why sustainability professionals should embrace Black Lives Matter 21.9.2020 Business Operations | GreenBiz.com
Why sustainability professionals should embrace Black Lives Matter Charles Orgbon Mon, 09/21/2020 - 00:45 Long before corporations acknowledged Black Lives Matter, they championed the plights of specific endangered species. Corporate conservation campaigns used phrases such as "Save the [insert your favorite animal]," which have been catchy, effective and oddly similar to the language we’re now using to educate people about the status of Black life in America. The Disney Conservation Fund protects lions, elephants, chimpanzees and thousands of other species. Ben & Jerry’s brings awareness to declining honeybee populations. Coca-Cola appropriately is the longtime ally of the poster child for climate change, the polar bear. As a kid, I, too, was influenced by Coca-Cola’s messaging. At just 11, I thought I could stop global warming, so I created a blog with articles urging people, "Save the polar bears." No one challenged me by asking, "What about the tigers? The tigers...matter, too! All endangered species ...

Where there's hope for speeding up business action on plastics 26.8.2020 Resource Efficiency | GreenBiz.com
Where there's hope for speeding up business action on plastics Elsa Wenzel Wed, 08/26/2020 - 02:01 In 10 short years, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) arguably has done more than any other group to define and advance the circular economy. Its landmark report,  "The New Plastics Economy" (PDF),   sounded the alarm in 2016 that if "business as usual" continues, by 2025 the ocean may hold more plastic than fish by weight. Its commitment by the same name has attracted many of the planet's biggest brand names, among 450-plus signatories, to dramatically slash their use or production of plastic by 2025. PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever and even Tupperware  have signed on with governments and NGOs to do away with "unnecessary" plastics and innovate so that other plastics will be reused, recycled or composted; and kept out of natural systems. Only five years ago, few corporate leaders had plastic pollution on their official radar. Yet Dame Ellen MacArthur herself is floored by the rapid pace of change in ...
