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. Also, we have added the gold standard of Coronavirus Coverage, the Dashboard from John Hopkins University, as the first of our links. Use it to stay informed. 

Our other site, is online and posting on peer reviewed COVID-19 research, finance, music, entertainment, sports, travel, design, medicine and whatever….check it out. Also, the playlist for January 2021 is at the bottom of the newspaper links; just click the button and our friends at Spotify will take care of the rest. Music is added to (and deleted from) the playlist everyday. This site is an experiment in journalism/media presentation, and the format changes as we try (and discard) new things. It should also be noted that the Media Bunker staff sometimes highlights news and events that do not parallel what the main media covers; there’s a reason for that, and it’s to expand the range of coverage and interests. Comments always welcome. Enjoy.

We thank them for sharing. We thank our friends at Spotify for enabling our music links for January 2021.  Publication/posting of The Nightshift was suspended while the Media Bunker/Perception Engineering team re-located to a new bunker (not as far fetched as it used to sound, eh?). BTW, it’s not the smartest thing in the world to move during a)the pandemic and b)the Christmas holidays. Try to avoid if possible. The Nightshift is a continually evolving experiment in news communications and is a production of Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker; it is rapid iteration within a surprisingly wide bandwidth.
