College Offers Access to Mideastwire.com

The College of Liberal Arts and Science is pleased to offer to its students, faculty, and staff access to Mideastwire.com, an Internet-based news service that employs a team of translators from around the region to gather important stories from and about the Middle East. Its core product is a daily e-mail newsletter to English speaking subscribers that aggregates key English language stories about the Middle East. The majority of English speaking business-persons, students and journalists who have an interest in the affairs of this region are largely unaware of what the Middle East media is covering.  Mideastwire.com aims to close this gap by offering a daily e-mail newsletter of concise, translated briefs covering some of the key political, cultural, economic, and opinion pieces appearing in the media of the 22 Arab countries, Iran, and the Arab Diaspora.  For more information, please contact Mideastwire.com. To receive the daily email newsletter in English, please send an e-mail to this address — info@mideastwire.com — for immediate activation.
