Rating of news Items

I like this hour. Preparing this blog post. Once a week I go through all my collected news items and articles I wanted to read for the whole week and finally I have the chance. Usually I have to skim another 50 or more articles to find some which have really reveal news or insights which interest me.
I hope this weeks selection fits your interest as well!
