No Guardian or Telegraph on Yahoo homepage!?

Here below is the question and a selection of comments (but no answers) from disgruntled Yahoo viewers who can no longer see headlines from the Guardian, Telegraph, and Daily Mail newspapers on the Yahoo homepage.
I am one of the disgruntled users who likes/liked the layout of news headlines on Yahoo.
I like to scan news from around the world and I get the Guardian, the Telegraph, and other newspaper headlines from around the world, on iGoogle.
I preferred the format on Yahoo, which if I recall it correctly (amazing how quickly the details of the format has faded from my memory) was all in one central box with tabs for the newspapers and connected links to related images above the tabs.
What's happened to Daily Mail, Guardian and Daily Telegraph tabs on Yahoo UK home page?

Up to yesterday, I could click directly into these newspaper sites. They were the best reason for having yahoo as my home page. Now it's just 'news', 'sport', 'entertainment' and' finance'. Why?
The same has happened to me too and I agree with you.
They feel that they need to keep changing things, for some reason; this is not always appreciated by the users.
Newspapers are losing money are limiting their sites so people buy more papers..
It can't be because of subscription issue. you can still google these papers and read them. Yahoo should stop changing user areas without asking the users. It give you lots of way to "tailor" your yahoo and then just ignores all this "choice" by changing anything it feels like. So so irritating.
I am another user not happy that these tabs have been removed overnight without any warning or explanation!
Tried fiddling around, can't get them back either. Really annoyed by this.
has anyone heard any more about this? I liked the different papers view they just went without any notice/comment or any apparent opportunity to give any feed back
agree with all above - can't even find where to formally query this. Going to wait a couple of days to see if it a glitch then will have to find new homepage. This is rubbish. Does anyone know of a similar news comparison site?Read more at www.searchwords.org

MarsEdit 4

I've been using MarsEdit for just over seven years. I started with version 2, and then upgraded to version 3 in 2010.Now, in 2018, I just upgraded to version 4. This is my first post with the upgrade and I'll report on it in a little while as I get used to the new version.Here is what Daniel of Red Sweater Software has to say about his product:Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor.

Resistance Is Futile

Some of the trains that run from London Kings Cross to Cambridge divide at Cambridge. Part of the train goes on to Kings Lynn and the rest stops at Cambridge and does the run back to London. Perhaps it picks up other carriages coming from somewhere else, I don’t know but it seems likely.When you get on the train and before it sets off, there’s a public announcement announcing how the train divides. It explains that the train is composed of eight carriages and that passengers wanting to travel beyond Cambridge should ensure that they are in the front four carriages.The rear four carriages are of course nearest the barrier, so we choose to sit in one of those carriages if for no other reason than that we don’t have to walk so far to find a seat.So there we are and the voice comes over with the announcement. And then there is a pause and then a voice tells you what carriage you are in. So we hear ‘Six of Eight’ or ‘Seven of Eight’ – and every time I hear it I think of Star Trek, ‘Three o…

Business For Britain Is Concerned With Business For Britain

This report in the New York Times today


LONDON — Is British business fretting about the risks of the country drifting out of the European Union? Or does it crave a looser relationship with Continental allies, one free from meddlesome regulation?
The answer to that question remained unclear Monday after a newly formed group of business leaders argued for a renegotiation of Britain’s membership terms — echoing the policy of Prime Minister David Cameron, who in January promised voters a referendum on whether the country would remain in the Union.
The new group, called Business for Britain, is intended to counter the intervention of pro-E.U. business leaders who have warned of the dangers of Britain slipping out of the 27-nation bloc and its single market of 500 million people. A statement released Monday to announce the group’s formation was signed by about 500 executives.
I think this opinion in the New York Times article is interesting:

Never much attracted to the idea of European unity,…
