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

Endorsement: DeGette, Neguse and Perlmutter deserve another term in office 30.10.2020 Denver Post: Opinion
The U.S. House of Representatives is a mess. Americans feel the lawmaking institution is controlled more by party interests than it is the elected officials sent to Congress to represent them. Critical issues are not being dealt with – climate change, health care, gun violence, immigration and pandemic emergency aid -- and the body struggles to even pass a working budget on time.
Krista Kafer: Vote yes on 2J and let good dogs stay in good homes 28.10.2020 Denver Post: Opinion
Dog jail is how I referred to the place when I was a volunteer. The big East Coast city dog pound was a bleak concrete and chain link operation. The air smelled of pee and disinfectant. Incessant barking reverberated against the bare walls. Rats darted through open doors. While on duty, I would step into cages to pet the pit bulls and give them extra bones. They would lick my hands. No matter how gentle or waggy-tailed, these dogs were all destined for death row. Every one of them, even puppies, were euthanized because of the city’s ban on pit bulls and dogs unfortunate enough to resemble them.
