I thought print was dead

About a year ago I started getting teenagers at my door, claiming to be from an "inner city", out here to get people to buy magazine subscriptions so they can have a better life, etc etc obvious scam etc. In the past month it's ramped up and last week I've had three of these guys at my door. My question isn't so much how can I get them to stop - they're not scary or anything - but how can I help these kids get out of this scheme without giving them money? [more inside]

Please Recommened (And Classify) Political Magazines

Quarterly Essay is mentioned here and sounds really interesting. I've read The American Interest, The Economist and Foreign Affairs while stuck in airports, and currently subscribe to Z Magazine. What other political / current affairs exist and how would they be described (format / political position)?

Current Kid's Magazines, physical copy edition?

When I was a kid, I got Ranger Rick and Dynamite and Highlights and Cricket and a bunch of other magazines in my name, and it was thrilling for me. Well, Christmas time is rolling around and I have a couple of new kids in my life, a girl age 5 and a boy age 8, and I'd like to get them actual physical magazine subscriptions because that's fun and exciting. What kids magazines actually still exist today as physical get-in-the-mail products? Im looking for a wide range of interests so I can work from a broad pool of possibilities.

What are good examples of good and inventive annotation on websites?

I'm looking for newsy/magaziney/commentary/journalism websites with good, interesting, even inventive, uses of annotation (more interested in notes made by authors/editors than comments by readers, but that is also interesting!) in their articles. Grantland's use of annotation is a good example. Thanks for any tips!

Free app-based magazines?

Hi, I'm not utterly delighted w. The Economist's general tone and editorial leanings, but they don't strike me as horrid and I like all the free content -- seemingly at least most of the weekly magazine -- via the app. Any recommendations for other good app-based magazines w. lots of free downloadable content? I'm mostly looking for news/current events/entertainment content, but I'm open. Thank you for taking a moment to help me.

College student in 2014: Which periodical should I subscribe to?

I'm a college sophomore and I want to be well-informed about the world. Which periodical should I subscribe to? Requirements: not US-centric, broad and well-written coverage. I'd love something like Lapham's Quarterly, but I'm also considering something that might condense important, current world news because it's hard to keep up with the newspapers. [more inside]

What are you reading besides The Atlantic?

A long time ago, Time Magazine used to provide moderately thoughtful, longer form articles about current events and culture. For the past few decades, that niche has been filled for me by a mix of Harper's, The Atlantic, and The Economist. None of these are perfect, but they provide a nice mix of interesting content on a monthly basis. What else is out there that you'd recommend? It doesn't need to be print, online would work as well.

Woman's Day From 1970's worth selling?

I'm going through my father's garage, and have come across two waist high piles of magazines from the 1970's, most likely waiting room material left over from when he owned a small business. They seem to mostly be "Woman's Day" and "Woman" magazines from 1970-1974. Should I separate the decent ones from the yellowing and crumbled ones, and try to sell them? [more inside]

How best to store and preserve old magazines?

I have a dozen old Omni magazines that I'd like to take better care of. They're over thirty years old now and the covers are starting to come off, the page edges are slightly worn, etc. Right now they're just standing on my bookshelf. I'd like to keep them in good condition but also be able to read them, without worrying too much that they'll be damaged in the process. Can they be rebound somehow? Should I just keep them in plastic sleeves, or is there another idea I haven't thought of?

FeMENist magazines

Are there any magazines out there like Bitch or Bust, or Ms., but targeted toward the hetero-male gaze? I'm talking about magazines that hold values inherent in third-wave feminism in relation to current events, topics like bypassing heteronormativity, overcoming masculism, fighting homophobia, speaking out against domestic violence, working toward gender equality, supporting reproductive rights, ending rape culture, etc. Zines are also ok.

The best (non-academic) periodical text-search engine?

Dunno if it exists - I'm looking for a searchable periodical database that will let me scour say, all magazines put out by X publisher, for a particular phrase. I see Google Scholar, but not something that lets me search typical magazines (Like Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Wired, etc). Does it exist? If so, point the way! (I realize I could try going to sites of each individual magazine and seeing if they will let me search all their online back issues). Thanks mefiters. : )

Good magazines for young teenage women?

What to do when your daughter has outgrown New Moon Girls, but you don't want to buy her a subscription to Seventeen or Teen Vogue? What magazines would you recommend for young teenage women that have fun quizzes (and probably sell stuff) and that aren't too heavy on literature or academic rhetoric? (Not that she can't read them, it's just that I know that's not what she's looking for, and she's smart enough to know when I'm pushing "school" stuff towards her.)

Formatting of US print magazines

So this has been bothering me for a while: I am living in Germany and had and have some subscriptions to US Magazines (Wired, Locus, NY Times Magazine). Why do they have this strange formatting where they interrupt articles in the middle and continue them on the end of the magazine? No German or other European magazines I came across do this and its uncomfortable to read. Is it some kind of remnant from ancient times, where every section had a predetermined allowance for pages and once an article exceeded its allowance the rest got tucked onto the end?
