Seperate wheat from Chaff for big picture

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? For e.g. if you want to get an idea about Greek defaults - Is it through reading select big picture blogs/sites or reading a whole lot of random stuff related to the topic? 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]

Model releases in news

I'm working on a news story for the local alt-weekly that involves a childcare center, and may be taking photos in the center. I've done child photography before, but it wasn't 'news' and we did model releases. I'm a bit nervous about parental concerns about privacy, and since I'm freelance I don't have a capital-N-news-organization to back me up, so I'm looking for advice. What's Standard Operating Practice for news photography of kids?

How do I make an RSS feed for Bloomberg News?

I'd like to have an RSS feed for Bloomberg News, specifically for their environment reporting, that I can put into Google Reader. The problem is, Bloomberg News discontinued RSS feeds in 2006. None of the workarounds I've found are satisfactory: This one, for example, tries to use Google News, but it wouldn't really work for my purposes. (Using "environment" site:bloomberg.com as my search string wouldn't necessarily return all news items related to the environment -- a story just about renewable energy, for example, not its environmental benefits, wouldn't show up at all.) There's also Feedity, but they want you to pay to have feeds with any sort of functionality, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to. Page2RSS is closer to the mark, but the output is messy (multiple stories in the same feed item). Businessweek.com, which is owned by Bloomberg News, offers RSS feeds with Bloomberg News, but they don't allow for narrowing down on just the environment reporting. Is there a solution out there that's better? [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.
