Story of #Janayugom

Janayugom is a Malayalam (a South-Indian language spoken in Kerala) daily newspaper with nearly 100,000 subscribers and 14 bureaus in Kerala. Previously Janayugom used to depend upon an outdated version of a proprietary software (Adobe PageMaker, final major release in 2001) for their layout and production related works. Moreover it only supported ASCII encoding. When they decided that they should move to a better software with much more essential features including Unicode support, the most recommended suggestion from the software industry was to use Adobe InDesign (successor of Adobe PageMaker). But then they found that, unlike for PageMaker, InDesign cannot be purchased for a one-time license fee but only available for a monthly (or annual) subscription fee which was economically not at all viable for Janayugom. That realization marked the beginning of a historical footstep both in the field of Newspaper Publishing as well as Free Software world.

Bret "bedbugs" Stephens is making the news...


Okay, I fully understand #Twitter is an antithesis to #Federated social networks, but this is special.

This morning I did not know who Bret Stephens (NYT) was. I knew of his work as caustic but didn't even attach a name to it before and barely remembered the #Newspaper it was published through.

Yesterday he got some "comeuppance" and it was delightful. I lost an hour this morning just hitting the heart button ❤️ on replies to his initial tweet attached below.

Die Linke |Wahlprogramm
Für ein solidarisches Europa der Millionen, gegen eine Europäische Union der Millionäre
Die Linken sind für ein soziales Europa, für eine andere Europäische Union, in der alle gut arbeiten und leben können. In dem nicht Ungleichheit und Ausbeutung wachsen, sondern der Zusammenhalt.In dem alle vor Armut geschützt sind. Ein Europa, in dem sich nicht große Unternehmen und Reiche vor der Finanzierung des Gemeinwohls drücken können, sondern sich alle an die Regeln einer solidarischen Gesellschaft halten. In dem nicht mit den Schultern gezuckt wird, wenn an seinen Grenzen tausende Menschen ertrinken.
Die Linken sind gegen eine Militärisierung der Eu und stehen für eine Abrüstung.
Sie wollen den Stopp aller Exporte von Waffen, Rüstung und Waffenteilen in Krisen- und Kriegsgebiete.
Sie wollen die EU-Rüstungsagentur abschaffen und stattdessen eine Abrüstungsagentur durchsetzen.sie meinen,dass Einwanderung kein Krisenfall ist. Sie sind der Meinung,dass Einwanderung zu Wo... Show more...
 
Blast from the past by Bill #Weinberg.
This #2011 critique of #OccupyWallStreet ( #OWS ), published by the local, neighborhood, #NYC, #newspaper, #TheVillager, was very forward-looking, almost prophetic.
#BillWeinberg is a very misunderstood #leftist #journalist, because he is so critical of the #left. Imo, if more #leftists would listen to him, they/we would be stronger.

On the death of local newspapers in the #US


The problem is in full focus this week after news of layoffs at three major media companies. While a lot of the attention is focused on national players HuffPost and BuzzFeed, the cuts at Gannett are the most worrisome, because it is one of the last big newspaper chains that has properties in markets of all size.

People want to blame the internet for the news industry’s troubles, but the seeds go back to the 1980s. To understand this moment and how to fix it, it means understanding three key forces creating this slow-motion disaster.

We focus on the “news” in newspaper, but those needs included things like TV guides, birth and death announcements, and calendars of community events. In the pre-internet world, papers functioned as pseudo-monopolies based on the limits of technology and the radius a delivery truck could travel. Online publishing, with its low cost and global reach, changed everything. Those i... Show more...
 

Another plea deal; this time: National #Enquirer


Federal prosecutors in New York on Wednesday publicly announced a nonprosecution agreement with the company and included that Pecker, through the agreement, admitted that he offered to "help deal with negative stories about that presidential candidate's relationships with women by, among other things, assisting the campaign in identifying such stories so they could be purchased and their publication avoided."

What is funny is that I once read someone stating that the National Enquirer was actually left-winged, which is funny now even more when reading that the boss of this tabloid cooperated with Donnie on negative stories aout his opponents and the women who allege him of anything. Yes, I really need to get into contact with right-wingers, of course.

A #newspaper clipping from 1912 that anticipates the global #warming potential of burning coal is authentic and consistent with the #history of #climate #science.

The furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with #oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the #earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries.
