Getting updated, daily…

In this age where we’re literally drenched with information, it’s actually rather difficult for anyone to claim that they don’t have access to the news. Keeping your current affairs knowledge current is important–not because such information will help you in your essay writing, but because they give you something important to care about.

Getting some kind of regular news intake is vital not only in ensuring your current knowledge is up-to-date, it also indirectly helps you to remember certain key events or phenomena that receive repeated media coverage.

For those of you who claim to be ‘too busy to read the papers’, here are some useful sites to help your daily fix in the shortest possible time.

BBC One-Minute News

Newsy Videos (multi-source news analysis)

Channel NewsAsia Video Clips are pretty useful as well

Enjoy!
