Current Events: bundled in a visual way

Browse the news visually
(Thanks for the heads-up, NS)

"View a color-coded [topic-block] page that shows trending news topics.  Buttons across the top allow you to narrow it to a specific country (including Canada) and buttons across the bottom narrow the topics (Technology, Sports, World News, etc.).  If you mouse over the map, you get a thumbnail that gives you the first sentence or two, an image, and the original source of the article (e.g. Globe & Mail).  Bonus: News stories from other countries are displayed in the country's language, so if you select "France" you get everything in French - looks like an excellent, authentic way to get in some reading practice."
