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.

Blackdog Speed Shop Announces New Engines - There's No Replacement for Displacement 26.8.2017 New Kerala: World News
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Aug. 26, 2017 : "There's no replacement for displacement" is the old adage in hot rodding. Turbos, superchargers, and nitrous challenge this statement, today. But, whether you want naturally aspirated, or you choose to use a turbo or super charger to increase power, you will always be limited by the engine that is at the heart of your project.

J'khand dam to eat into land for tiger habitat 24.7.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The National Board for Wildlife (NBWL) has cleared the construction of the incomplete Kutku Mandal dam, as part of the North Koel irrigation project, that will submerge and fragment over 1,000 hectares of forests and 15 villages inside Palamau Tiger Reserve (PTR), Latehar district, Jharkhand. After the Ken-Betwa river linking project in Panna, Madhya Pradesh, this is the second big project NBWL has recently cleared inside prime tiger habitat. The project has been in the works since the 1970s, but got a renewed push from the Centre and the Prime Minsiter's Office from 2015 onwards. A substantial portion of the Kutku dam was built till 1997, but it came to a halt after intense protests by local tribal communities against the impending displacement. The project will submerge 116 sq km of Palamau habitat out of a total of 1,129 sq km. The reserve has seen its tiger population dwindle from 42 in 2003 to a mere 3, owing to grossly weak staff strength and strikes caused by Left-wing extremist groups. ...
