To hear good news in your dream, signifies that you will be fortunate
in your endeavours and will have many harmonious companions. The
contrary is true if you dream of hearing bad news.
News is the reporting of current events usually by local, regional
or mass media in the form of newspapers, television and radio programs,
or sites on the World Wide Web. News reporting is a type of journalism,
typically written or broadcast in news style. Most news is investigated
and presented by journalists (or reporters) and often distributed
via news agencies. If the content of news is significant enough,
it eventually becomes history.
To be considered news, an event usually must have broad interest
due to one or more news values:
(how many people were, are or will be affected?)
Timeliness (did the event occur very recently?)
Revelation (is there significant new information, previously unknown?)
Proximity (was the event nearby geographically?)
Entertainment (does it make for a fun story?)
Oddity (was the event highly unusual?)
Celebrity (was anyone famous involved?)
News coverage often includes the "five W's and the H"
-- who, what, where, when, why, and how.
derivation of the word "news" is debated. One theory is
that it is an acronym for the four cardinal directions (North, East,
West, and South), but most etymologists believe the more prosaic
explanation that it comes from the word "new", reflecting
the fact that most news involves events that just happened.
democracies, news organizations are often expected to aim for objectivity:
reporters cover both sides in a controversy and try to eliminate
bias. This is not true of all organizations in all cultures. For
instance, British newspapers make little pretence that their reports
are neutral - each has its own political stance, and news reports
generally reflect the company line.
single-party states have operated state-run news organizations,
which may present the government's views. Even in those situations
where objectivity is expected, it is difficult to achieve, and individual
journalists may fall foul of their own personal bias, or succumb
to commercial or political pressures. Individuals and organizations
who are the subject of news reports may use news management techniques
to ensure that they make a favourable impression.

NeWS, for Network extensible Window System, was a window system
developed by Sun Microsystems in the late 1980s. Its primary architect
was James Gosling, who subsequently designed Java.
Based on PostScript (PS), NeWS started by modifing the PostScript
interpreter to run in a cooperative multitasking fashion. Unlike
PostScript in a printer, NeWS would be displaying a number of PS
programs at the same time on one screen, so some form of multitasking
was required. Contrary to popular belief, NeWS is unrelated to Display
PostScript, instead it is a similar product, but generally considered
superior because of it's clean inclusion of commands to create windows
and manage events, and the object system, all of which DPS left
up to outside (and often totally different and platform-specific)
addition, NeWS added a complete view hierarchy system, based on
viewports known as canvases. Like the view system in most GUIs,
it included the concept of a tree of embedded views along which
events were passed. It also included a complete model for events
(including timers and other "automatic" events), input
queues for devices, and other functionality required for full interaction.
But by far the most interesting addition was a complete object oriented
(OO) programming style with inheritance. This eliminated the need
for an external OO language to build a complete application.
all of these additions were added as additional PostScript keywords,
it was possible to write simple PostScript code that would result
in a running, onscreen, interactive program. For instance one of
the common examples was an onscreen clock, which required about
two pages of PS code.
also included a library (several actually) of user interface elements
(widgets), written in NeWS. These widgets ran all of their behaviour
in the NeWS interpreter, and only required communications to an
outside program (or more NeWS code) when the widget demanded it.
The best example of such a toolkit is TNT (The NeWS Toolkit) which
was released by Sun in 1989.
example, a toggle button's display routine can query the button's
state (pressed or not) and change its display accordingly. The button
can also react to mouse clicks by changing its state from pressed
to not pressed and vice versa. All this can happen in the windowing
server without interaction with the client program, and only when
the mouse is released on the button will an event be sent off for
was more sophisticated than a "dumb" X Window System server,
which can only report "mouse clicked on button" events
to a client, which then has to switch the state, and finally instruct
the server to display the new state. If client and server are not
on the same machine, these interactions must travel over the network,
slowing the feedback loop down unnecessarily.
companies licensed NeWS and adapted it for various uses.There were
only a few companies committed to this unproven technology. SGI
used it to replace their proprietary GL windowing system. The OpenLook
version of FrameMaker developed by Frame Technology Corp. with funding
mainly from Sun Microsystems and NSA at the time was one of the
few commercial products successfully run on NeWS. The freely-available
X11 was already quite popular, so the first versions of NeWS emulated
X11 by translating the calls into NeWS PostScript. Speed problems
plus the existence of programs that relied on the exact pixel results
of X11 calls, forced Sun to release an X11+NeWS hybrid called Xnews
which ran an X server in parallel with the interpreter, which seriously
degraded the NeWS interpreter performance and did not really result
in a very good X server either. Sun also attempted to emulate the
look & feel of OpenLook with a toolkit built on the same Xt
(X Intrinsics) base as Motif, called OLIT, so that X programs could
be made to look identical. After it was clear that OpenLook had
lost out to Motif in popularity, and after Adobe acquired FrameMaker,
products on NeWS simply vanished. Most UNIX workstations (including
Sun's) now run the X Window System.
case can be made that a graphics engine where the code can be placed
in either the screen engine or the application code needs to be
considered as well, from any practical standpoint, Display PostScript
offered the same power and flexibility for almost none of the complexity.
Why did NeWS fail? There is no doubt that in many ways NeWS had
a superior design for thin-networked clients, by moving much of
the processing to the display, and separating graphical user interface
semantics from client program semantics.
reasons for its failure in the market include:
is not a good programming language for humans. A "compiler"
from a C-like syntax called pdb (PostScript Done Better) was developed
but was not a supported Sun product.
Writing NeWS apps required coding both client-side code and server-side
code in two different programming languages. Communication between
the two sides was very undeveloped and quite difficult.
NeWS may have been ahead of its time and user requirements in the
sophistication level of its graphical and user-interface capabilities
NeWS had much less of an advantage when the client and server ran
on the same machine, and the network computing model never took
off sufficiently to justify the extra complexity
NeWS needed to be licensed from Sun, while the source code for the
X Window System was freely distributed.
