World news you missed. We report news that didn’t make global headlines for an international audience. Have a break from the constant flow of information and discover news you didn’t know about.
Who are we?
Newsendip is an independent media created in 2021. It provides a global approach to news and hope you can enjoy serendipity with insightful information you don’t know about.
What we do
We select and publish stories about the most significant news around the world that you would not encounter in your regular media consumption.
Between your national news media coverage and stories attracting global attention, plenty of impactful situations are left behind. We put them at the forefront and make international news easier to find.
Those stories are not yet under the eyes of the world but are the ones that help understand it better. We develop the stories and explain them as if our audience was always an international one.
To do that, we scan news and monitor stories from all around the world with our proprietary tools. We can adapt our world news scanner and use our expertise for you.
We do not display content based on your suggested interests or past behaviors.
We publish news stories that are not covered globally but that can resonate to an international audience to understand a country, a region, or the world better.
They are covered across five large categories:
- Culture & sport
- Health & science
We publish news that has borderless subject matters like environmental issues, gender equity, digital economy that an international audience can relate to. It can also be significant national stories that help understand a country better. We report on news that could also happen in another country. International news is the core focus of Newsendip, even more when it involves multinational companies or politics between countries that is only covered nationally or regionally.
We aim to have neutral coverage, with the main purpose to explain what is happening for an audience who is not familiar with the news story. Not all countries and cultures are similar, and not everything is transposable everywhere. But we cover news based on the fact it is so significant that an international audience should know about it, or that people can relate to the news with their own lives. We publish stories not because we agree with them or want to promote ideas, but because it can help better understand the world we live in and reflect on it.
Ever heard of that word? It can be overused sometimes but the idea behind serendipity is a fortunate but unexpected discovery.
For example, we believe that users scrolling on social media want to be entertained, be fed with news that they don’t know about. They are open to be finding something new even if they don’t know what they will discover.
Moreover, have you ever browsed a newspaper or read something you are not usually interested in?
We believe this is a call for serendipity. You can enjoy serendipity on this page right now.
We believe that’s what makes you intrigued in something, when you sense that you’ve just encountered something new, interesting you didn’t expect. We’d be glad it happens on this website.
By the way, the word ‘serendipity’ comes from the 1557 book The Three Princes of Serendip in which the princes are able to describe a missing camel that they never saw, thanks to their sagacity and a succession of fortunate accidents. Serendip is the old name of Sri Lanka.
Have you ever thought there is the same news everywhere? If that so, you may want to keep this website in mind.
We bet you would be interested in the echo chamber theory and the side effects of the same information being repeated everywhere, too.
We want to be the place where you break that circle, the place where you come because you are looking for news you wouldn’t have known otherwise.
On top of that, with so much algorithm trying to understand who you are, there is no room for discoverability anymore.
There is another theory around that: the filter bubble. The concept is that algorithms trying to predict what you like based on your previous behaviors are actually locking you down with the same type of information little by little.
And guess what? Your friends, family or colleagues aren’t much of any help. Your social groups mostly look like you. In fact, we all create our own bubbles, it’s not so much algorithms at the origin of it, it’s only an amplifier most of the time.
What you have read indicates what you are interested in. But we believe it may not always predict what you will be interested in and want to provide a safe space that still allows you to discover news.
Newsendip is international by essence.
If you agree with the above values, you are probably a curious mind. You already know much about what happens around you and are aware of the biggest headlines.
Most news platforms have a primary domestic audience and would relay information that directly affects you (also called the hierarchy of death). This website is not going to be better that your local news media about your local information.
But it will bring insights about what most media you use don’t talk about, because they don’t necessarily see why it would relate to you.
Because what we see is a curious mind eager to understand what is going on outside of someone’s immediate world, and learn from it.
Other news media legitimately focus first on what is happening close to their audience, which directly affects them. Not only is it legitimate, it is necessary. But we aim to provide news other than based on a geographic scale, and rather focus on subjects that would relate to an international audience wherever it takes place.
You may be a German curious to understand why Norway invests in Ghana’s digital future, a Ghanaian willing to find out why the Australian intelligence agency stops referring to left or right wing extremism, an Australian surprised to see that British would likely refer themselves as coming from the working class even if they are not, a British curious about India using Internet access as a political tool, an Indian eager to learn how Mexico tries to reduce junk food next to schools, a Mexican wondering if Italy really faced more poverty in 2020, an Italian amazed at how an Australian animal can produce cubic poop…
Because we want you to focus on quality content, we try to remove unnecessary features. We want to bring good performances in support of great content.
We aim to be clear, but not simple. As such, we will try to make the best website with a core focus on the user. For instance, our language aims to be understood by many.
One size doesn’t fit all. It’s hard to satisfy everyone and we can’t. However, we try to meet the more universal needs rather than adding complexity.
We believe in balanced revenue streams.
You don’t want ads? Then it’s fair you pay for the content.
You don’t want to spend money to read on this website (other than your internet connection and the device you already bought for this purpose)? Then it’s fair you receive ads.
Time and efforts spent to provide a service we hope you like deserve to be monetized. If you think this website doesn’t provide a good value, you are free not to use it, and our relations stops there. We don’t sell our user’s data anyway. No hard feelings, we will try to be better and welcome you back another time.
Business models only based on advertising revenue can become dependent on external corporations. Business models only based on subscription revenue are vulnerable in pleasing the opinion of their audience.
We want to inform correctly, and for that, we will need to walk with at least two legs. You will soon have the possibility to choose your preferred way of using Newsendip.
We can also offer our services for companies, large and small, and professionals who want to be better informed. We can replicate the use of our tools meant to cover news and adapt it for business needs. Our editorial coverage is totally independent from this service.
