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

Boulder County’s populations of native bird species decline in the face of development 12.1.2020 Denver Post: Local
The Northern Hemisphere lost 3 billion birds, or 29% of the overall population, in the last 50 years. While the warming climate has played a demonstrative role in this decline – and will continue to do so with ever-increasing power – ornithologists in Boulder County have pointed to urban sprawl as a more immediate threat to the survival of the area’s native bird populations, without which local ecosystems cannot properly function, adding to the affects of climate change.
