April was another slow month for the Newsviner's Picks Group, there were only four articles clipped. The first and most important is an article giving some instructions on how to use the new Editor on Newsvine. A Brave New Editor, By Newsvine Blog (Clipped by Scott (Scoop) Butki) gives detailed directions on the changes and the new features on this editor, "We're very excited for this release, and we hope to see you using it to write and share news even more. Click 'Publish' on the black bar, the former 'Write Article' - or just click here, since this was such a long walkthrough - and get to writing, previewing, embedding, uploading, and publishing. Then let us know how it was for you in the comments!" I have to say that I had been off Newsvine for a while and really did not see the moment the new editor was introduced, but as soon as I used for the first time thought it was a good change.
Cutting the cost of government while expanding entitlements IS indeed possible, By Citizen Kane-473667 (Clipped by Vintage Viner), gives some interesting thoughts about getting the overall costs that the government currently has, many of the ideas are not only bold but against common beliefs of the American population, like "we can cut the cost of government and expand upon entitlement programs at the same time. As we struggle to reduce our Federal Deficit and reduce State budgets many are casting about for ways to do so." Very good read, you don't have to agree with all the author's ideas but some do make you think.
