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

New Report Questions Fire Plan Logging 12.6.2009 NewWest.Net Development
A new report on the effectiveness of thinning forests under the National Fire Plan shows that most logging occurs far from communities, thus questioning their effectiveness. Plus the majority of lands that should be treated lie not on federal lands, but private lands. The report gives new credence to critics such as myself who maintain that most fuel reduction logging operations are wasting tax dollars and causing more harm than good.

Salazar Taking Stewardship Seriously 3.5.2009 NewWest.Net Travel & Outdoors
To hear the public relations arm of the oil and gas industry describe it, Ken Salazar’s first few months on the job as Secretary of the Interior have been a disaster. But if you ask the country’s sportsmen and women, you’ll find they emphatically disagree. Since his confirmation by Congress in January, Salazar has restored some common sense and responsibility to the process by which America’s public lands are loaned to industry for oil and gas extraction. Hunters and anglers in states that hold the majority of BLM and Forest Service lands are applauding the more balanced approach taken by Salazar’s Department of the Interior in considering the detrimental effects irresponsible development can have on fish and game habitat.

Architect Michael Tavel and the Subdivision of the Future 10.4.2009 NewWest.Net All Headlines
Michael Tavel gerw up in Ohio and Colorado, and after training as an architect at UC Berkeley (and getting the chance to work with the now-famous new urbanism planner Peter Calthorpe), he returned to Denver as an architecture professor in 1991. His focus was the integration of town planning and the natural environment - something that seems like it should happen as a matter of course, but usually does not. "How do you take new urbanism and integrate it with the natural and historic conditions of the place?," asks Tavel. After years of teaching and studying the issues, he decided it was time to practice what he was preaching, and he launched Michael Tavel Architects six years ago. One of his first major projects was the award-winning Solar Village ...

New Drilling Rules Put Colorado at Forefront 1.4.2009 NewWest.Net Politics
Colorado has long lagged behind in mitigating oil and gas drilling impacts, but new rules passed by the state legislature have thrust the state into the forefront and created what conservationists hope could be a model for others to follow. While tougher energy regulations in other Western states foundered, Colorado blazed ahead with a controversial set of rules meant to better safeguard landowners and the environment. They came after 18 months of discussions and years of failed attempts. Despite threats from the energy industry that the rules would spell doom for thousands of workers, they passed the Democrat-controlled state Senate last week along party lines. Advocates for the rules say the problems don’t stop at the state line. After watching oil ...

1,000-Mile Journey Carries Montana Wolf to Colorado 26.2.2009 NewWest.Net Travel & Outdoors
A gray wolf from a southwestern Montana pack has traveled to the Colorado high country on an incredible journey that carried her across 1,000 miles and five states into a place where native wolves had been wiped out some eighty years before. A global positioning satellite collar attached to the 18-month-old female’s neck pinpointed her in Eagle County, on Colorado’s Western Slope, home to the Vail ski area. Montana wildlife officials received the information last weekend, but the data comes with a two-week time lag, meaning the wolf’s whereabouts since then are unknown. “Two weeks from now, who knows where she’s going to be?” says Carolyn Sime, wolf program coordinator for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
