In the face of the news, one sometimes has the impression of being in full intellectual tsunami. Where, when, how, what conflicts, what actors? Deciding to follow what is happening in the world can be a daunting task. Yet this year, you decided to put yourself in it. For studies or for your culture G, you are ready to take the bull by the horns.Step by step, here are some ideas and tips to tame and even tame the torrential flow of information.
Beginner level: quality rather than quantity
When we want to take a closer look at the news, we are full of good resolutions. It subscribes to the World, we read some articles, and soon not even unpacked copies pile up in a corner. It does not take more to make us give in to discouragement and soon the TV news of 20h becomes our only source of information, and again if we have time.
To start gently without getting overwhelmed, we advise you rather to focus on the quality of your information to its quantity. Of course,unity ingot news is a high quality newspaper but it may not be the most obvious way to start.
Choose, according to your interests, a weekly or even monthly magazine rather than a daily newspaper. Whatever your interests, there are magazines planned for. For example, you can choose to be interested in economics with Alternative Economies, or international news with CourierInternational that translates newspaper articles from the press around the world.
In the end, the subscription is cheaper and the reading is more fluid thanks to more important articles and folders. As long as you do, choose a newspaper to the model (presentation) nice, we are not there to hurt the eyes.
Choose a TV show and, if possible, get some regularity
Multiplying the sources is good. Taking the time to understand an editorial line, an information processing is better.
Rather than zap, so fix your appointment of the day or the week and honor it for a few months. In the end, you will know the tone of the show, its positioning (rather liberal, left, etc.) and the different points of view of its chroniclers.
One of the most appreciated shows in this area remains C in the air, broadcast on 5 from Monday to Friday at 17:45. The presenter, is recognized for his pedagogy: no doubts, with him you’ll understand everything. In time, you will know the various regular columnists and you will be able to better understand their positions.
Beware of smartphone apps
A push notification every ten minutes, and you think to know the news permanently? Classic mistake. Applications are very useful in transport, or when you cannot afford to invest in the daily press, but do not be fooled: the news requires more to be understood, that a vague blow between two parts of Candy Crush.
