Here is a video I’ve just uploaded

It’s very good, I would recommend it, as the articles are well written and don’t seem to follow the normal stories found in most news sources. For example, the lead story was arguing that the United States is not in decline, and that this will become apparent in Obama’s second term. I can’t be bothered to go into any more detail, but I just thought that I should have updated any readers on my progress.
In fact, I’ve decided to take out a subscription with the magazine. For anyone else thinking of doing so, I recommend using the promotional code EB12B to get 12 magazines for £29.99 (which works out at £2.50/magazine, RRP £4.50).

I’ve been on the lookout for a news magazine which I could regularly read. Why a news magazine, you say? Well I’ve always found newspapers a bit rubbish if you want proper analysis of news events, and most papers are rather biased one way or another anyhow. I would prefer read substantial articles that cover single topics, than lots of small reports and the odd ‘opinion’ piece. And a paper goes out of date pretty quickly.
I bought an issue of Prospect magazine, which I don’t think I had heard of until recently. Unfortunately I’ve been busy and preoccupied so have only read a couple of articles, but it looks promising. Plus, it’s monthly, which just about gives me time to read it (though judging by my Empire subscription, I would have to put a bit of effort into getting it read).
It covers a really rather large range of stuff, current affairs politics, arts, science and everything, and so far as I can see has something of an international approach, though not as much as The Economist for example.
Well see how it goes.
EDIT: It’s also a nice size, which is important, and has a spine.

Buy my phone! It is new (as in unused). I only deliver to the UK. Please contact me if you want to give me an offer. I know I posted this a white ago, but it’s been relisted. It’s got a high quality Mugen Power extended battery, among many other batteries and the battery-charging cradle, as can be seen (it’s also unlocked). It is a Galaxy Nexus.
