Library hours across England slashed by austerity | Books | The Guardian
Data gathered by the Labour party shows that over the past eight years 117 local authorities have jointly cut access to books and other public services by more than 230,000 hours. And more than half of the 2,208 libraries that submitted information admitted they had shut their doors for 21% of the time they were normally open in 2010.

The Big Mac index - Burgernomics
Burgernomics was never intended as a precise gauge of currency misalignment, merely a tool to make exchange-rate theory more digestible. Yet the Big Mac index has become a global standard, included in several economic textbooks and the subject of dozens of academic studies. For those who take their fast food more seriously, we also calculate a gourmet version of the index for 48 countries plus the euro area.

Scoop: Forbes is trying out the blockchain - Axios
How it works: Forbes will plug in Civil’s software to its proprietary content management system called “Bertie.”

Once plugged in, Forbes journalists will be able to upload their metadata to the Civil network early next year, while simultaneously publishing to Forbes.com.
The company will begin uploading cryptocurrency content first — an editorial focus they’ve increased investment in lately. If the experiment works well, other topics will follow.

This Election Offered A Window Into WhatsApp's Wild, Sometimes Fact-Free World
Benevenuto said that attempting to track misinformation on WhatsApp has been extremely hard, due to the social network's encryption, but he said the fake news his monitor collected became increasing politicized as the election drew closer.

Over the weekend, the monitor was able to record groups sharing the rumor that Bolsonaro supporters would be turned away from polling stations if they wore any merchandise supporting the candidate. On both Saturday and Sunday, several versions of the rumor were among the top five most shared posts across the 350 public groups.

What Europe could learn from the way Africa treats refugees | Alexander Betts | Opinion | The Guardian
Neighbouring Kenya’s refugee policies are generally regarded as far more restrictive than those of Uganda. Its “encampment policy” has denied its 500,000 refugees the right to work or move freely since the early 1990s. However, there has been recent progress, with Kenya recently opening a new refugee camp in Kalobeyei along a similar self-reliance model. In contrast to the country’s established camps, it creates greater opportunities for agriculture and entrepreneurship, and a shared marketplace for refugees and the local population. The evidence suggests the model leads to higher incomes and better food security than in more traditional camps.

Report: News organisations still favour Facebook despite feeling the pinch of algorithms | Media news
Based on 21 interviews with editors and mangers at 12 newspapers and commercial broadcasters in Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and the UK, Private Sector News, Social Media Distribution, and Algorithm Changefound that the impact of the Facebook's algorithm changes has varied amoung news organisations, with those posting more content seeing less decrease in audience interaction – and in some cases, growth.
French publisher Le Monde was found to have been hit the hardest with a 32.5 per cent drop, unlike the 13.6 per cent rise found at The Times.

Why The New York Times TL;DR’d its own 14,218-word Trump investigation » Nieman Journalism Lab
at the same time that it published the investigation that was a year in the making, it also aggregated itself — publishing “11 takeaways from the Times’s investigation into Trump’s wealth.” The TL;DR version is by the same authors as the full investigation (Russ Buettner, Susanne Craig, and David Barstow), and, at over 2,500 words, it’s pretty much a longread of its own. There’s also this much shorter interactive version, with audio and video.

How news organizations can guide through the “information jungle” » Nieman Journalism Lab
Younger focus group attendees highlighted email newsletters for useful information curation, with six out of the 64 saying they read a morning newsletter almost every day. The subscribers described the value of the newsletters to them as reliably delivered summaries of important news where “you feel like you are talking to a person.” Participants were also not fans of paying for a bundle of news (like, uh…subscribing to a newspaper?) because of time and cost efficiency. The most effective print information, in the majority’s perspective, was a free paper that could be read in its entirety in a 10-minute train ride.

Reflections on The Uber Game, one year on
But I think there is still a long way to go before newsgames become an established news format, or a class of content like video or audio. There is a big difference between making one good newsgame because everything happened to have come together in just the right way, versus being able to do so consistently at a high level.
Compared to other formats, newsgames remain complex and expensive to produce. This makes it hard to find sustainable business models to support and scale it beyond one-off or passion projects.

Too few children receiving treatment for ADHD, figures suggest | Society | The Guardian
Ofsted’s chief inspector of schools, Amanda Spielman, claimed too many children were being given Ritalin, the main drug for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. She said reliance on drugs meant behavioural problems were not being addressed.
But new figures released to the Guardian by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) under the Freedom of Information Act show that just 61,000 boys aged between 6 and 17 were prescribed ADHD drugs last year – about 1.5% of the population of boys in that age group, and far below global estimates that indicate 5.3% of children have the disorder.
