Everyone’s busy, and everyone should keep up with the news–to do both, subscribe to your favorite media aggregator (daily or weekly emails that summarize key updates and then, often, link to longer articles). Here follow my favorites (and all of the following charge nothing for the emails although might charge for the longer articles). The QR codes should work to take you to each periodical’s subscription page. Details and direct links follow below the image.
- Select updates or alerts from the Wall Street Journal by interest–on topics you pick from many choices
- Daily summaries about campus and the world from the Daily Tar Heel–great source for Tar Heel sports info
- The Skimm offers daily looks into culture, media and current events–summaries of longer articles
- The Morning’s Brew’s slogan says you’ll become smarter in 5 minutes–not bad : )
