What is RSS?
RSS or Rich Site Syndication (also 'Really Simple Syndication) feeds are free content feeds from web sites that contain headlines, summaries and links to the full page on the web site.

How do I use RSS?
Special news readers, called 'news aggregators' are required for you to be able to use RSS feeds. We do not endorse a particular reader, you can locate RSS readers via web search engines such as Google or Yahoo. There are also several reviews of the various news aggregators available.

Why use RSS?
RSS is an easy way to gather a wide variety of content in one place on your computer. Rather than having to visit many web sites to find out if there is new content, the RSS agregator shows it all to you in one screen. Many RSS readers also 'alert' you when new content from your favorite web site is delivered. RSS also has the potential for replacing email lists.

Email lists allow users to subscribe to and receive new content via email. But subscribing to the email lists can result in a clogged inbox in your email application. And you have to separate the subscribed email from other email. Subscribing to our RSS feeds can eliminate that email entirely. However, subscribing to the RSS feeds (you subscribe using the tools in your chosen RSS reader) does not unsubscribe you from the email lists; you must manually unsubscribe, if desired. You can maintain subscriptions to both services simultaneously.

If you have a news reader and wish to acquire our feeds, click anywhere on an RSS feed logo (see logo at top of page) in an area of a web page that interests you. Note that these feeds are coded in a format for news reader software to interpret and will not render correctly in your web browser. You will only see raw code. To subscribe, read the instructions that came with your reader application.
