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

Unnoticed by many, two members of Congress from Washington have decided it’s about time to do something to resolve the seemingly endless debate over the future of our last roadless lands. Senator Maria Cantwell and Representative Jay Inslee, both Democrats, have re-introduced the National Forest Roadless Area Conservation Act (S.1738, H.R. 3563) to codify the Clinton-era Roadless Rule that has been on a legal roller coaster for the past nine years.

Is opposing Obama all that GOP does? 13.10.2009 Custom Search
To the editor: Was there controversy over supporting an Olympic bid? I saw on CNN when reporters were asking whether or not it was a good idea for the President of the United States to support Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympics. The answer is unquestionably yes. Yet why should there even be a question? Republicans and other conservative groups are stooping to a new low. They will oppose anything that our President supports just for the sake of disagreeing with him.
