World News - 3

Date: 2023-01-13

It's an interesting note that most countries had an English speaking news site that I could get an rss feed from. However, specifically parts of South America only had options in Spanish and parts of Africa only had French. Parts of the Balkans also only had Russian.

Everywhere else there was always an English option. I wonder if this says something about those places.

I'm going to have to add a translate flag to the data to trigger the titles to be translated and the links to route through google translate.

The project is definitely pretty fun. The first article I saw in China was that they had a group of Muslims from UAE come and take a look at Xinjiang and they said that everything was good there. The place was a multicultural place and everyone was accepted. Interesting.

I want to try and travel to all these places some day. There is just a stupid amount of world out there.

When I was looking for some news from Tuvalu, I ran into a reddit thread where the PM of Tuvalu was talking to people and trying to hype it up. That is so cool. Especially since this was in 2012 when Reddit wasn't as big as it is now.
