Best ways to channel the zeitgeist?

What Web sites, resources or tools have you found for channeling the zeitgeist at any particular time? This would be slightly different from reading the "news." For instance, The New York Times offers a good overview of what's happening in the world, but the "Most Shared" sidebar is a far better indicator of what people are talking about. Twitter has emerged as a good resource for this, but there's such a huge amount of data there that I wouldn't know how to comb through that. [more inside]

Really Good Newsletters?

Maybe I am just old-school, but I really enjoy getting well-curated newsletters in my e-mail inbox. My favorite is NextDraft, and I also enjoy Harper's Weekly Review, The Quartz Daily Briefing, and Quora's newsletter (that is apparently customized to my activity on their site). What do you look forward to seeing in your inbox on a regular basis?

Finding international news coverage on a specific topic

I am looking for international news coverage (All forms welcome, but print media preferred) of anything negative about Times Square. Trying to find news articles which would discourage someone visiting the US from going to Times Square. I have tried Google News and some basic internet searches, but of course it's hard to know what to even search for in other languages. I can get a budget for this, and I would love to hire someone to research it for me, but what kind of service do I search for? [more inside]

What news aggregator do you use?

I have tried to get on the RSS bandwagon. Really I did. But it's just too much drama for me. I read The Morning News (www.tmn.org) everyday, and love that someone I trust chooses stories for me -- it's edited, focused, smart, and clean. Does anyone have other aggregators (or curators?) that are similar? (I'm trying Atlantic Wire with limited joy.)

How to find good information.

How do I find reputable, factual, unbiased sources of information? Anything from breaking news (global or local) to current issues to scientific studies. I'm looking for the kinds of sources that will give a good overview or analysis of a topic, and then show me their sources so that I can investigate further if I wish. Websites and printed sources are the most helpful for me as a student, but I welcome any suggestions. [more inside]

What will be in the news next year?

Certain news stories are predictable in advance-- because they cover stories that happen every year (like the Oscars or the Super Bowl); or because they cover events you can see coming a long time away (like the 500th birthday of some historical personage.) Is there any comprehensive list of Things That Will Probably Be In The News Next Year? I'm looking for something like this weekly preview from CNN, but over a longer timescale.
