News feeds

Every time we post a new article or update a story on you can stay informed by following our news feeds. News or RSS feeds [usually known as Really Simple Syndication]  carry a short summary of an article that links to the full article on this site. You can set  RSS feeds based on your own interests.

To read feeds you will need an RSS Reader. This is a piece of software that monitors the feeds you have subscribed to and alerts you to new content as soon as we publish it.

Most browsers – including Internet Explorer and Firefox – have RSS Readers built in and make it easy to follow your chosen feeds. If you have a Google Account, you can use Google Reader to follow your feeds. Additionally, many mobile phones have RSS Readers as part of their software and allow you to keep up-to-date on your feeds while you're away from your computer. If you use an iPhone, the App Store has many different RSS Readers available.
