Spring Has Sprung – And Scoop Gets A Facelift!

Spring is the season of renewal. And Scoop, as you will know, is constantly listening to its readers, as well as pondering the significance of the seasons, and weather.

Over the past few months many of you have expressed views on how we might improve navigation of the Scoop site. Your ideas have now been incorporated into a major upgrade to the Scoop interface design which went live today.

See…

http://www.scoop.co.nz/

Key improvements to the new design include:

- a new front-page which is continuously updated as soon as new items are posted to the site – the new front page displays the five most recent headlines from each of 11 Scoop wires;
- a new navigation system which is no longer frames based;
- two new front-page search boxes, one connected to the existing Scoop search engine - and a second powered Google - the world’s most popular search engine (also used by Yahoo!);
- a realignment of the Scoop wires to better reflect the expanded range of Scoop coverage and make navigation simpler and more consistent;
- a more consistent display format for Scoop’s feature pages – now all accessible via a new Features section;
- a new My Scoop section improving access to Scoop’s customiseable news-by-email services;

Scoop invites its users to have a look at the new Scoop design – if you haven’t already done so.

We also encourage you - if our improvements are to your liking - to assign Scoop as your home page.

To view the new Scoop design simply visit Scoop at:

Scoop would like to express its enormous gratitude to the following people for their considerable efforts in implementing the new design:

- Andrew McNaughton – Scoop’s technical director;
- Miles Thompson – assistant technical director and general trouble-shooter;
- Douglas Bagnall – designer.

Finally, if you have any problems with the new design please contact us at editor@scoop.co.nz as we will be continuing to improve it over the next few months.

In the spirit of renewal

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted. Finally, such an honour is netted, in all likelihood just to shut that overly keen individual up. More>>

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren. In fact, that solidarity is mutual. More>>
