The Daily Update consists of substantial analysis of the news of the day (~1800 words) delivered via three daily emails in addition to the free weekly article (four total articles per week).

Daily Updates are also available via RSS or on this site. Please see the Daily Update Schedule for more details about delivery times and planned days-off.
