What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and allows you to stay up-to-date with news feeds from our web site by delivering headlines as they are updated right to your news reader. You will be able to quickly read the headlines and then visit our site for the full story. RSS feeds automatically deliver direct links to our most updated content on demand to your desktop.

How Do I Use RSS?
In general, the first thing you need is a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added to them. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feeds from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want to receive in your news reader, by finding and copying relevant RSS feed links to your news reader.

Popular News Readers
There are many news readers available, most are free. For web based news readers, try My Yahoo. The Mozilla FireFox browser has a built-in news reader also.

This Week in Labor History

November 19

Joe Hill, labor leader and songwriter, executed in Utah on what many believe was a framed charge of murder. Before he died he declared: “Don’t waste any time mourning. Organize.” - 1915

(The Man Who Never Died: The Life, Times and Legacy of Joe Hill, American Labor Icon: This is the definitive, well-illustrated biography of Joe Hill, legendary American songwriter and labor hero, with explosive new evidence pointing to his innocence of the crime for which he was executed nearly a century ago. In 1914, Joe Hill was convicted of murder in Utah and sentenced to death by firing squad, igniting international controversy. Many believed Hill was innocent, condemned for his association with the Industrial Workers of the World—the radical Wobblies. Following four years of intensive investigation, William M. Adler gives us the first full-scale biography of Joe Hill, and presents never before published documentary evidence that comes as close as one can to definitively exonerating him.)

The Great Recession hits high gear when the stock market falls to its lowest level since 1997.

Officially, the recession lasted from December 2007 to June 2009 - 2008
