We can’t stop constantly checking it on our computer screens, but what is this doing to our minds?</p><p>We are never really taught how to make sense of the torrent of news we face every day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The Architecture of Happiness), but this has a huge impact on our sense of what matters and of how we should lead our lives. In his new book, de Botton takes twenty-five archetypal news stories—including an airplane crash, a murder, a celebrity interview and a political scandal—and submits them to unusually intense analysis with a view to helping us navigate our news-soaked age.</p><p> Tue, 08 Apr 2014 15:12:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 87613 at http://wamc.org "The News: A User's Manual" By Alain De Botton Morning headlines with Judy Patrick of the Daily Gazette http://wamc.org/post/morning-headlines-judy-patrick-daily-gazette-49 <p>WAMC&#39;s David Guistina gets the morning headlines from Judy Patrick, managing editor of the Daily Gazette.</p> Wed, 18 Apr 2012 11:04:18 +0000 David Guistina 37044 at http://wamc.org Morning headlines with Judy Patrick of the Daily Gazette Morning headlines with Mike Spain of the Albany Times-Union http://wamc.org/post/morning-headlines-mike-spain-albany-times-union-44 <p>WAMC&#39;s David Guistina gets the morning headlines from Mike Spain, associate editor of the Albany Times-Union.</p> Tue, 10 Apr 2012 12:00:24 +0000 David Guistina 36477 at http://wamc.org Morning headlines with Mike Spain of the Albany Times-Union Morning headlines with Judy Patrick of the Daily Gazette http://wamc.org/post/morning-headlines-judy-patrick-daily-gazette-47 <p>WAMC&#39;s Ian Pickus gets the morning headlines from Judy Patrick, managing editor of the Daily Gazette.</p> Wed, 04 Apr 2012 11:11:49 +0000 Ian Pickus 36103 at http://wamc.org Morning headlines with Judy Patrick of the Daily Gazette Morning headlines with Mike Spain of the Albany Times-Union http://wamc.org/post/morning-headlines-mike-spain-albany-times-union-43 <p>WAMC&#39;s David Guistina gets the morning headlines from Mike Spain, associate editor of the Albany Times-Union.</p> Tue, 03 Apr 2012 11:09:42 +0000 David Guistina 36019 at http://wamc.org Morning headlines with Mike Spain of the Albany Times-Union
