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

Julian Assange has now been in the maximum-security facilities of Belmarsh prison for over 1,000 days.

Binoy Kampmark: The Mauling Of Novak Djokovic
Rarely can the treatment of a grand sporting figure by officialdom have caused such consternation. Novak Djokovic, the tennis World Number One, has always had a tendency to get under skin and constitution, creating a large following of admirers and detractors. But his current treatment by Australian authorities, and his subsequent detention as an unlawful arrival despite being granted a visa to participate in the Australian Open, had the hallmarks of oppression and incompetent vulgarity...

Binoy Kampmark: Voices Of Concern: Aussies For Assange’s Return

With Julian Assange now fighting the next stage of efforts to extradite him to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 of which are based on the brutal, archaic Espionage Act, some Australian politicians have found their voice. It might be said that a few have even found their conscience... More>>



Forbidden Parties: Boris Johnson’s Law On Illegal Covid Gatherings

It was meant to be time to reflect. The eager arms of a new pandemic were enfolding a society with asphyxiating, lethal effect. Public health authorities advocated various measures: social distancing, limited contact between family and friends, limited mobility. No grand booze-ups. No large parties. No bonking, except within dispensations of intimacy and various “bubble” arrangements. Certainly, no orgies... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Question Time Is Anything But
The focus placed on the first couple of Question Time exchanges between the new leader of the National Party and the Prime Minister will have seemed excessive to many but the most seasoned Parliamentary observers.

Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>
