The Assassination of a President #128

Editor: Christopher Brennan
This week the president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, was killed at his residence in Port-au-Prince. Though media around the world carried the basic details, I decided to use our algorithm to highlight stories that are adding something to the conversation. While filtering on quality and substantiveness does a good job of retrieving information from reputable sources to keep you up to date, it also provides information from outlets you haven’t heard of, such as English-language papers in neighboring countries, that provide important perspectives and depth.

CCP Turns 100, Regulating Big Tech, and Troops Leave Afghanistan #127

Editor: Christopher Brennan
Though Digests like this one chunk up articles into falling into different categories, the issues that they discuss often intersect. This week’s topics are the Chinese Communist Party’s 100-year anniversary, regulation of Big Tech and the departure of U.S. and NATO troops from Bagram airfield in Afghanistan. While they take place in different regions of the world, I think one of the benefits of dealing with subjects in-depth (and being able to find those articles with our algorithm) is that delving into complexity often reveals the connections between disparate strands of news.

Long COVID, Apple Daily and Ethiopia #126

Editor: Christopher Brennan
As summer gets underway, people often disengage from the news, spending time on the beach or on a hike instead of in front of their screens. The world never stops, however, and there are stories that do not get the attention that they deserve. This week I decided to use the Digest to pull in interesting articles you might have missed (from sources you might not read otherwise) that touch on three different topics where you might want to get up to speed: further research into “long COVID,” the crackdown on Hong Kong including the pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily, and fighting in Ethiopia’s Tigray region

The Danger of Delta

Editor: Christopher Brennan
After long being isolated, this week the international arena kicks off again face-to-face, from football to global finance. The G7 is meeting in Cornwall, the first in a sprint of summits for Joe Biden as he heads to Europe for the first time as president. The world is watching for movement on issues like vaccine access and global tax deals, though many eyes will be drawn elsewhere, to the countries jostling for glory on the pitch. This week’s Digest used our technology to pull in articles on Euro 2020 (actually in 2021) as well as the G7, US-EU and NATO summits.

Deepnews Double Feature: Euro 2020 & Biden in Europe #123

What Money’s Made Of #122

Editor: Christopher Brennan
Even as the pandemic continues in many parts of the world, some countries are entering a new world of recovery, with new issues to tackle from supposed labor shortages to inflation to international tax reform to worries about evictions as benefits end. It is a lot to take in or make sense of, so this week we used our algorithm to pull in pieces you might have missed that are worth considering as you figure it all out.

For Amazon Subscribers’ Eyes Only #121

Editor: Christopher Brennan
The Everything Store has been everywhere, from Jeff Bezos’s departure as CEO of Amazon to antitrust suits to continued campaigns for better working conditions to the purchase of MGM, the studio behind James Bond and other titles, for more than $8 billion. This week we set our algorithm to pull together stories that touch on Amazon and add something to the conversation, scored with Deepnews quality scores.

This Too Shall Passport #120

Editor: Christopher Brennan
One of the first areas to suffer from the pandemic was the the interconnectedness of the world, with airport flight boards going empty as international travel was cut off. Over the past couple weeks countries faring well with their vaccination campaigns have begun looking at “vaccine passports,” and debating issues such as privacy, feasibility, where they should be used and where they shouldn’t. This week’s Digest includes well done reporting and analysis on all the angles on vaccine passports, as well as some in-depth articles on vaccines more generally. Gathered and rated with Deepnews quality scores.

Watch This (Office) Space #119

Editor: Christopher Brennan
Along with falling coronavirus rates in many countries come questions of when “normal” returns and what exactly we want “normal” to mean for our working lives. It’s a subject where many news outlets have written a piece or two, though it can be hard to get all the angles on the issue without something like Deepnews to spotlight reporting and analysis. Here is what our algorithm gathered this week on the subjects of working from home and the return to the office.

Giving Everyone a Shot #118

Editor: Christopher Brennan
As vaccine rollouts start to suppress the coronavirus in some countries, others are wondering when it will be their turn. With any global topic, such as patents, there is a lot to take in. Deepnews can be particularly useful in these sorts of media monitoring situations, as by focusing on quality it finds articles that are contributing to the conversation with reporting and analysis, rather than putting forward the same content as everyone else. Here is a selection on the subject of vaccines and vaccine patents.
