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.

Get Cooking: Pancakes around the world 10.11.2020 Denver Post: Food
Nearly every culture or country cooks its take on what we call pancakes. France has its crêpes; Eastern Europe, their blinis. With those, we are familiar; with Finland’s pannukakku or Hungary’s palacsinta, not so much. Likewise, by and large, for Ethiopia’s teff flour-based injera or Colombia’s corn meal-based cachapas.

Warm and flaky sausage rolls: A childhood favorite reimagined 22.10.2020 Denver Post: Food
Warm and flaky sausage rolls, stuffed with savory meat and striped with ketchup, may not have been school cafeteria fare in Brooklyn while I was growing up. But they were in Australia for Paul Allam, where, as a kid, he used to long for one to appear at his primary school lunch table, tucked into a crumpled brown paper bag, steaming and a little soggy in the best possible way.

Letters: Ginsburg could have retired (10/4/20) 4.10.2020 Denver Post: Opinion
Ginsburg could have retired Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had the opportunity to select the president that would replace her. Had she retired during the Obama administration, I’m certain she would have been happy with her replacement. A Republican Senate would have been more inclined to confirm the replacement of a liberal with a liberal. The overall makeup of the Court wouldn’t have changed. Instead, Justice Ginsburg made a conscious decision to hold onto her seat until she died. She had no intention of retiring. Her retirement date was under her control. Her date of death was not. Her time ran out. And now, she has no control over the selection of her replacement. There will be a drastic change in the makeup of the Court. She allegedly told her granddaughter, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”’ She was really saying her most fervent wish was to have more time on Earth. Don’t we all have the same wish?
