Like the content - but the formatting is kind of hard to sift through quickly.  Headlines, bylines, and lead-in sentences are all kind of intermeshed inside the balloons/frames.  Is there a way to distill the balloons/frames down to just headlines?  Or maybe use different fonts for headlines, bylines, and lead-in sentences?

And for the record - I completely suck at website authoring, so I am WAY not throwing stones...  I wish that I could actually be more helpful.  But the content does look good - and the "Facility News" link in the "Related Pages" balloon complements the page contents well.

Well... the Google feed (which is what that is) mashes everything together, so we can't differentiate one part from another.  I know what you are saying, and I agree that it's annoying.

I usually sift through the ANS news pages.  Which is just the same google feed, right?  Most of the hits I see over there are international, sort of fringe stories.  I don't really care about uranium mining in Kazakhstan or stolen soil density gages.  I think what you have is more user friendly with the pre-set filter buttons up top.  Lazy man friendly :)

Something I can identify with. ;)

I like the looks and feel of it Mike.  Another great improvement.

G-reg,

I made a few changes, what is there now is probably the best I can do.

I also made a few tweaks to the algorithm for the news feed on the home page.  It should have more good stuff ,and less bad stuff.

lack of user interface with the new system.

I don't understand, please explain.

 The current news page just has all the feeds on one (long) page.  The new page has buttons on the top that let you pick which feeds you want to see.

"What is there now" looks good to me!  (I certainly couldn't have done it.)  Kudos to you -and karma, too, in about 9 hours when that 24hr Karma Clock resets.

And I'm sorry about the lag time getting back to you on this.
