    Does anybody else miss the choice SciAm news tidbits on upper right?

    In there place we now have links to Physics Today articles. However these are mostly restricted access or pay-per-view, so one cannot read most of what is offered unless one is a subscriber.

    Perhaps this change to the main page was discussed elsewhere and has reasons I don't know about. Anybody have a link to some conversation about it?

    Marcus I will change up the RSS again, I didn't realize they were pay-per-view. I switched out SciAm because they seem to have tweaked their RSS feed and it's messing with PF's formatting.

    I'm sorry to cause trouble (and hope the contact with SciAm does not continue to mess us up!)
    just to make sure, I tested and found 6 of the 8 Physics Today links were subscriber only,
    so if that is typical of them it does not seem like a good deal.

    I've been appreciating the newslinks in the upper right and hope you find a workable solution.
