What Are The Top Challenges Facing Digital News Publications In 2020?

The decline of the printed press is nothing new. I mean, hello, it’s 2020. Are you going to buy a newspaper from your local newsagent or are you going to pick up your phone and scroll through Facebook/find out what’s trending on Twitter? If you’re under the age of 30, I guarantee it’s the latter. In fact, I’d bet my pet Chihuahua on it… …Cue a shameless excuse to include a photo of my pet Chihuahua Boris – cute, isn’t he? Anyway, back to the matter at hand. As a former Journalism student, lesso...

Is Bernie Sanders a deep cover Communist revolutionary? Uh, no.

Bernie Sanders has a problem. On a few occasions he has given qualified praise to dastardly Communist regimes in the Soviet Union and Cuba, thus proving his sympathy with the Red menace. So says both the army of Never Trump conservatives (numbering in my count at maybe two dozen, every one of which has a newspaper column somewhere), and various Democratic elites, including some of Sanders' presidential opponents.But this is just the latest flailing attempt of a political establishment desper...

What we talk about when we don't talk about our salaries

Back in November, I shared a piece about the "Real Media Salaries Spreadsheet" that was started by one of my colleagues and publicized the incomes of more than a thousand people working in media. Now the New York Times has published a great new piece about this movement, on the breakdown of the taboos around pay transparency: Open discussions of pay lay bare some of the basic contradictions that govern so many workplaces, which claim to embrace their workers like family while insisting, all the ...

The Devon Kershaw Show: Stage 6 Ski Tour 2020 — Waxing for Hell or High Water

Stage 6 of the Ski Tour 2020 was, by any stretch of the imagination, a steamroller for Norway. A clean sweep on the men’s and women’s podium. On the men’s side, that’s not exactly what we expected. Russia’s Alexander Bolshunov looked like a sure thing for the overall win. A 30 k classic for the 23-year-old, I mean who would have predicted anything different? The weather was all over the place. As Devon has said several times, the weather in Trøndelag can be a mix of everything unpleasant. And t...

Hovland sinks long putt for first PGA Tour victory

Viktor Hovland became the first Norwegian to win on the PGA Tour when he rammed home a 25-foot birdie at the final hole for a one-shot triumph at the Puerto Rico Open on Sunday. Hovland, who won the 2018 U.S. Amateur Championship and was making just his 17th start on the Tour, reacted with glee when his putt crashed into the back of the cup at considerable speed and dropped in at Coco Beach in Rio Grande. "To win the first tournament from Norway is really special.

All Norway: Pål Golberg takes the Ski Tour Overall as Bolshunov Stymied by Tricky Conditions

Yellow bibbed as the overall leader of the World Cup, out first on Sunday’s 30 k classic pursuit in Trondheim, and Norway’s Pål Golberg starting 34 seconds back: this was the situation Russia’s Alexander Bolshunov found himself in as he pulsed from the start. Thrown into this mix of tension was a helter-skelter mish-mash of weather. On and off again snow, blustery winds, and temps hovering right near that wax tech’s no man’s land of 0 °C. We are not used to seeing Bolshunov falter. He has bee...

Therese Johaug, untouchable during Stage 6 of the Ski Tour 2020. (Photo: NordicFocus) We’ll start with the weather: think all over the place. A moving target for meteorologist with moisture spitting from the skies, and air masses swirling this way and that making the trees sway like a mamba line along the course. A wax tech’s nightmare scenario? Yes. It certainly trended in that direction.   By all measures, this was Therese Johaug’s, Norway’s latest version of a cross-country skiing record-...

Can these giant dams keep Europe from drowning?

The Northern European Enclosure Dam (NEED) would cut off the North and Baltic Seas from the Atlantic Ocean.It would save 15 countries, and up to 55 million people, from sea level rise—but at a cost.The idea is a warning more than a plan: NEED will be necessary if we don't stop global warming now. Unprecedented scale Climate change is real, and it's bad. It's also gradual and impersonal. That's why it's both tempting and easy to stick your head in the sand. Do that long enough, though, and you'...

Stage 5 Ski Tour 2020: Championship Style Classic Sprinting

A full-on championship course in Trondheim, Norway where the World Championships will go down in the mid-2020s. That’s a long way off.

And yes, with all the fans, it seems this might be a venue to revisit in the near future.

Falla Steps up For the Trondheim Win; Five U.S. Skiers in the Heats

The day began in Trondheim with a centimeter of snow, which then transitioned to big blue skies for the thousands of fans attending the fifth stage of the Ski Tour 2020, a 1.5 k classic sprint.  The Norwegians can throw a cross-country race party. The scene, despite the different setting, was reminiscent of the festive cowbell and camp-out sideshow of Holmenkollen’s Frognerseteren . It’s not quite the Yankee stadium of cross-country skiing, but a sign that in the hot-beds of the sport, fans...
