Tips for Utilizing Reports

SCANNING is a VITAL SKILL in today’s information-packed world. Learning to be a good scanner will help you throughout your life. These reports are designed for easy scanning. You determine what is interesting and/or useful.

Just scanning this page will help you be informed. However, deeper reading is nice as well. It is up to you.

Each item has a number of elements including a headline with link to the original that will open in the same tab/window, the domain or site it came from, the country or US state the item is relevant to (if applicable), an open/close excerpt link, a link to open the item in a new tab, excerpts and sometimes media.

Excerpts & Media Most items have excerpts and some include media like video, audio, or screenshots. You can open and close ALL of them by clicking on the link right above the first headline. Also you can open and close each individual one by clicking the open or close link below each headline. Please note that clicking on an individual excerpt with close another you may have open. Here is a shortcut link to: View this report with excerpt of each article (like Google) .

Note about Media: videos, screenshots and other media don't always fit perfectly within the report's design. This is a known issue especially on mobile devices.

Tabs Trick: Opening a link in a new tab in the background while you stay on the same page is a great way to augment your scanning. Scan the headlines and click while holding down a key (Windows: ctrl+click Mac: cmd+click) to do this. You don’t break your scanning and can then later go through the tabs you have opened at your own pace.

Saving Articles: You could of course bookmark articles but I highly recommend either of these for saving the articles you want to keep or read later: GetPocket.com or Stash. Either way organization is key.

A “PR” in front of a link means that link goes to either a press release, sponsored post or native ad – in other words something that someone was paid or compensated for in some way.
