      I use Feedly to collate my various news subscriptions. Works pretty well and allows you to skim through the articles quickly.

        What would you subscribe to V? Just have a sub to FT and Wired at the moment. Ditched WSJ for FT as found it so weak on stories compared to FT. Feel I need one proper real news subscription to round out the sub list. But have always hesitated over NY Times - feel I already have too many US news stories in my life and want some decent insights into what is happening in the growth of Africa for example, or real insights into Asian perspectives.

          The Economist has always been the standard bearer for me, far superior than WSJ from my experience. That said a person I worked with up until recently swears by WSJ. The Economist is only hard copy publication I subscribe to atm.
          It has some regional specific sections covering the areas you mentioned. Well worth a sub imo.

          I had New Scientist and The NewYorker up until recently but I don't care enough for the Arts in the latter which makes up a large enough proportion while the former can be a little gimmicky at times.

            99 would have been great value

            Nice to splash out though every once in a while.

                I guess it should be The Economist. Just hard to find the time to read that many stories every week or so! But they have a strong global perspective.

                    Hope mum is doing good as well. What age is your other little boy? how is he with the Usurper in the house?
                    They older lad was 2 at the end of July. He hasn't been too bad although has tended to put blankets over the baby's head, which isn't great. I'm back to work on Monday and herself isn't looking forward to that. The toddler is a mad bundle of energy and there is nowhere to really expel it other than indoors at this time of year, and she can't drive until Christmas either after the section, so not great.

                    Changing nappies on the two kids consecutively makes the older lad seem like a monster.

                        SPOILERWow.
                        Someone in work said to me wed night, " i dont know...too much talking..."
                        Yeah, fast and the furious for that man.

                        Some of the visuals were sketchy, one or two, the grocery owner beating, but the acting and dialogue from everyone made it very nearly perfect.

                        Im judging it as a major fan of goodfellas and its up there, missing that 1%, that bite the actors has back then, that snap they may be missing in this, but overall very happy.

                        Wife even watched it, and enjoyed it.

                        Made me want to stick on goodfellas after it, that narrative storytelling i really enjoy.

                        Robbie Robertson did the score, i enjoyed the few songs i remember but must seek it out for that sound.
                        This too shall pass.

                              I've gone the opposite way, I've tried to remove news as much as possible. I've muted any mentions of IT/Indo/RTE from my feed. NYT is next, and Bloomberg is skirting the edge.

                                        Well the wine was €36 so the food worked out at €65 each which I thought was good for a 5 star hotel restaurant, 3 courses each and a couple of surprises like a prawn and leek amuse bouche and some mince pies that came with the tea after dessert.

                                        All that said, meh it's not like we do it regularly and neither of us really drink so enjoy splurging on a good meal every now and then

                                                    Luiz and Mustafi at the back is scary. Give him a few weeks to see where Pepe fits in, and if he sees Torreira as a midfield mainstay.

                                                    Funky VAR result there. We don't usually get them our way

I’d be interested to see it as the Fitz is my favorite place to play poker.
                                                                                                                    Did they formally release anything yet does anyone know?
