Notd is a new kind of public media network that does not rely on ads. Anyone can publish a stream for free, and readers create their own customized publication by subscribing to individual streams. Stream owners can charge for subscriptions, and keep 90% of the revenue (if they charge at least 10 cents per month). Many streams cost only one cent per month, and often have excerpts that are free to read. Since new users get $3 in free credit, you can check out most streams without even providing a credit card.

Why Settle for Just an Email Newsletter?

Many writers are trying out email newsletters to monetize their work. While this could work out well for some of them, relying on email as the only distribution channel limits their audience, and potentially, their revenue. Also, some newsletter services have minimum subscription rates so high that most writers will not attract many subscribers.

It was an appropriate introduction for a bunch of world-class skaters who will represent the best aspects of this American-born sport in Tokyo: No leaders, no followers — and plenty of love and support for the whole crew.

Crowds gather at Stonehenge for Solstice despite advice

Dozens of people have ignored advice not to travel to Stonehenge for the annual summer solstice celebrations, which were cancelled Monday due to coronavirus concerns. English Heritage, which looks after the Neolithic monument, had planned a live feed of the sunrise at Stonehenge for the second year in a row. But the organization said that program had to be interrupted because of safety concerns after "a number of people have chosen to disregard our request to not travel to the stones this morning."

In Argentina, pandemic exacts a heavy toll on tango culture

In a huge ballroom in a Buenos Aires basement, the tables are stacked. On the orchestra stage, the piano lid is closed near unplugged speakers and billboard images of tango celebrities. The empty, dark dance floor at the Viruta Tango Club is a symbol of the pandemic-induced crisis facing dancers and musicians of an art form known for close physical contact and exchanging partners. Like other venues of its kind, the Viruta club has been closed since March 8, 2020.

Help wanted: Labor crisis plagues US restaurant industry

California fully reopened its economy on June 15 and did away with limits on capacity at restaurants, retail stores and other businesses. People are eager to return to sporting events and amusement parks and enjoy a meal out. But instead of full dining rooms, many restaurants are being forced to cut operating hours or leave tables open. Some businesses are offering cash bonuses to workers who recruit new employees. The worker shortage is also affecting restaurants across the U.S.

Some used vehicles now cost more than original sticker price

When it was new, the window sticker price on a typical 2019 Toyota Tacoma SR double cab pickup was just under $29,000. Two years later, dealers are paying almost $1,000 more than that to buy the same vehicle, even though it's used. Then they're selling it to consumers for more than $33,000. Welcome to the wacky world of U.S. car and truck sales, where the pandemic and a global shortage of computer chips have pushed prices to record levels.

Hottest seller at GameStop is its own stock, $1B raised

GameStop raised more than $1 billion in its latest stock sale, capitalizing on a newly arrived and fervent army of online investors. The video game retailer has taken center stage among a handful of companies that have come to be known this year as meme stocks. The phenomenon has pitted smaller investors who snap up shares of beleaguered companies, against large, institutional investors who have shorted shares of those companies, or bet that shares in those companies will fall.

Turtle carcasses wash ashore in Sri Lanka after ship fire

Nearly a hundred carcasses of turtles with throat and shell damage, as well as a dozen dead dolphins and a blue whale, have washed ashore in Sri Lanka since a container ship burned and sank, raising fears of a severe marine disaster. Ecologists believe the deaths were directly caused by the fire and release of hazardous chemicals while the Singapore-flagged X-Press Pearl burned for 12 days and sank last week off Sri Lanka's main port in the capital Colombo.

Amid clamor to increase prescribed burns, obstacles await

In the 1950s, when University of California forestry professor Harold Biswell experimented with prescribed burns in the state's pine forests, many people thought he was nuts. “Harry the Torch,” “Burn-Em-Up Biswell” and “Doctor Burnwell” were some of his nicknames from critics, who included federal and state foresters and timber groups. Six decades after Biswell preached an unpopular message to those who advocated full-on fire suppression, he is seen not as crazy but someone whose ideas could save the U.S. West’s forests and ease wildfire dangers.
