News analysis

I need to do a rough and ready news analysis. I want to go to a specific news site and see the frequency of certain words and phrases before and after a certain date. Ideally, I'd be able to do this in a slightly more complex way, with combinations of words and phrases. I want to do this for free. Does such a tool exist? [more inside]

Where is radio news guy Bill Crowley working these days?

Where is Bill Crowley -- former WCBS, WINS, and Air America Radio news guy -- working these days? I always admired Bill Crowley's ability to keep his head in the midst of madness, but I've lost track of him since Air America Radio shut down its news division. Given his long career in radio, he's kind of an unheralded treasure. I'd really like to know what he's up to these days, and to find a way to hear his voice again if possible.

My Gmail acct. hijacked to send spam

Twice recently my Gmail acct. has been hijacked by someone who is sending spam emails to some, but not contacts --seems to be only recently emailed (by me) people. The spam is an ad, as seen on Fox News for Raspberry drops weight loss aid. How do the spammers access my Gmail account? Could it be through my brand new Android cell phone? I am unaware of any other problems on my (Macbook) home computer. I have a secure WiFi router at home. No evidence malware or virus. I've changed my Gmail password, FWIW. Any suggestions on how/where to find a way from this happening again?

I want to learn about the birth of dystopias, fictional and real

I'm looking for books, stories, films, documentaries, articles about the birth of dystopic societies. Examples could be a prequel to the Hunger Games (how did this fictional world come to be?), an article about people's lives in a nation where democracy was overthrown, stories about how Jews and non-Jews reacted to the early days of Hitler's rise, explorations of the slow realization that an ostensibly democratic nation is now really run by a strongman or single powerful party.

How do I find reputable, factual, unbiased sources of information? Anything from breaking news (global or local) to current issues to scientific studies.

Help me remember this website!

Long shot question: I am trying to remember a news/interesting stuff website. The content has pictures, linked essays, sometimes both. The essays are along the lines of Longform.org. The design is yellow and black ... of this, I am sure. The "about" states that it is curated by one woman, please donate. I think the logo has a brain in it, but don't let that throw you off.

Online News Service Recommendations?

I'm looking for an international news program service that I can access online. I don't have TV, so ideally i'd like a list of videos that give me the gist of what's going on in the world, preferably from multiple sources. I'd like something like a video version of Android's pulse app, where I could choose my sources, make a playlist of stories and sit back and watch/listen. I don't mind paying for it, but I'll need it available in both the U.S. and China. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I would like to improve my ability to make sense of the news and form an educated opinion. So what are the techniques you have for connecting the dots in today's news stories to get the big picture?

Do you read rely on select trusted sources ? Or do you quickly go through a whole lot of Google News Stories / Wiki entries etc. [more inside]
