Google announces AMP, a much faster way to load news articles on smartphones This page appears largely as it would on the mobile web, but has been cached by Google and its code stripped down, meaning it loads almost instantly from search results. Google has also designed the technology so editorial content will always load before ads, and ads won’t automatically re-size themselves as you scroll. It should in theory provide a faster, cleaner reading experience. The service is expected to go live early next year, but can be trialled at g.co/ampdemo on mobile browsers. Searching "Telegraph" for example, will load up a carousel of news stories, which can be clicked on and swiped through. How AMP stories will appear in search results

Executive Summary - Reuters Digital News Report 2015 This year’s data see a quickening of the pace towards social and mobile news, a decline in desktop internet, and significant growth in video news consumption online. At the same time, we see the continued centrality of traditional platforms – particularly television – and ever more stark country-based and generational divides over the way news is found, consumed, and distributed.

Our data suggest it provides an environment dominated by a few successful brands, with others struggling to reach a wider audience, both via apps and browsers.The move to online video, new visual formats, and social media coincides in many countries with a fall in audiences for traditional TV bulletins.

What is Obamacare? - Everything you need to know about Obamacare Obamacare led to the cancellation of some individual health plans, but new research suggests that the individual marketplace was very disruptive and prone to churn prior to the health-care law. Obamacare requires insurers to offer better plans than they did before the law. As a result, some old plans, many of which didn't meet the new criteria, were canceled or replaced with other plans. Insurers projected Obamacare's new regulations would lead to 6 million cancellations overall. But a study published in Health Affairs found, by looking at Census data, that the individual marketplace was already characterized by a lot of disruption prior to Obamacare, and only 42 percent of people with individual health plans kept their coverage throughout the typical year. Ben Sommers of the Harvard School of Public Health extrapolated his findings to other Census data to conclude that 6.2 million people left the individual marketplace each year — before the enactment of the health-care law.
