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

Letters: Equality for all (10/12/20) 13.10.2020 Denver Post: Opinion
Equality for all I have heard from some that all the lives matter. But in the next sentence, they complain about protests about racial inequities and how people are messing up a sports game with protests. They value a game more than life. Some complain of having to wear a mask, yet they do nothing about racial inequities. They are more concerned about having to wear a mask and having the right to protest wearing masks when we have lost over 200,000 people to the virus.
