Is there a news website that focuses on news most people can use right now? No Kardashians, but also no lost girls, pets, or polar bears? Focusing on the top ten things that statistically kill people, and no mentions of Ebola or Zika? Focusing on best practices for managing your checkbook, and no mentions of Brexit or Grexit or deficit reform? Focusing on ways to deal with depression and substance abuse, while ignoring Sasquatch and the latest crazy dashcam footage from Russia? [more inside]
Hoping to find at least one ostensibly liberal news website that has not yet collapsed into a pit of Buzzfeed-ification or gossip column nonsense masquerading as current events. I don't want to read about the latest offensive off-the-cuff remark made by some random state representative or Joe the Plumber or Sarah Palin or any other totally irrelevant GOP-friendly media personality. I only want to read in-depth stories about U.S. politics with a liberal bent: candidates, issue positions, polls, all that fun stuff. Can you help? [more inside]

Yahoo News seems to have re-designed their site in a way that's removed the ability to enlarge the text of its news articles on an iPad... Is there a way to get around this? The person behind this question is nearly blind and doesn't want to re-learn a non-Yahoo news web portal....
I'm looking for examples of media outlets and organisations which do quality labour and industrial relations reporting. [more inside]
Can I have the headlines from my wordpress blog show up on my website? [more inside]
I am trying to remember the address of a website I used to use daily. It's a one-page site, updated early each morning with a selection of links to Australian and international news stories. It's not just an aggregator; the links are carefully chosen by a woman who I believe used to be a newspaper reporter. It's called something like 'morning news' or 'breakfast brief'. Maddeningly, it seems to be un-Googlable. Any ideas? Or, failing that, any suggestions for similar sites?
How do I find pre-news information about topics for my website, either via research papers on the subject, or by press release? [more inside]
