The Nightshift publishes direct links to the world’s greatest English language newspapers to facilitate research and encourage understanding of the world’s events of the day as well as provide resources to follow certain segments of sports, business, society, art, and weather. Don’t forget that we have a direct link to the National Weather Center’s the next to the last of our news links. Click for your updates. We also added today a link  to Street&Smith’s Sports Business Journal site, which covers U.S. athletics.

We thank them for sharing.  This post is number 2178 for this site (we stay busy overnight). The Nightshift is a continually evolving experiment in news communications and is a production of Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker. Currently, The Nightshift staff is developing a very streamlined graphic/display approach to news distribution and it will appear from time to time. That doesn’t mean we won’t publish in the People, Places, and Events for Today format that we have used for the last year  (and are using today) but it does mean that constant development of the site is one of the reasons we produce it. We also re-freshed links to the top five, which had been de-activated (for some odd reason) right before our previous news server went down (31 December 2018). We are still battling technical issues, but the Media Bunker crew will get it sorted….The Nightshift is rapid iteration within a surprisingly wide bandwidth. Thanks for reading. Now–catch up on the world .
