Help with News Feeds

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". An RSS feed or news feed is an online file in a special format (not a web page) used by a range of devices. A news feed reader or news aggregator software collects in one place current items from many news sources. Feed readers allow you to quickly follow any topics you are interested in. On our news page

Many feed readers are integrated into email programs or Web browsers, and have an alert option if you want to know immediately when a new article is available. Software such as Thunderbird, Firefox, Internet Explorer have feed readers built in. Services such as Google and MyYahoo allow you to add feeds to your home page. Once you have a feed "address" set up in your feed reader, new article titles will automatically be added. Just scan the subject lines and read only those that interest you.
