The Bulletin was an Australian journal that debuted on January 31, 1880 in Sydney. It was resurrected as a modern news magazine with Newsweek in the 1960s as The Bulletin, and it was Australia's longest-running magazine publication until the final issue was issued in January 2008. The magazine focused on politics, arts, literature, business, society, and sports.
Its first editor was George Robertson (who also co-founded the Australian Broadcasting Corporation), and the magazine was published by a committee of directors. Its main office was in Melbourne, but later offices were opened in Perth, Adelaide, and Hobart.
The original aim of the magazine was "to afford a medium for the expression of opinions on matters of public interest". It included articles written by individuals who represented various views on issues such as women's rights, labor laws, political reforms, and more.
In its early years, The Bulletin had a large circulation due to its quality content and its exclusive distribution in retail stores. However, as television became more popular during the late 1950s, The Bulletin's audience began to decline. In addition, other magazines started appearing on the market so there was less need for another publication. By the end of 1968, the last issue of The Bulletin was printed.
Even though the magazine is now gone, The Bulletin name continues to be used by several organizations in Australia.
The News Chronicle was a daily newspaper published in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1930 by the merging of The Daily News and The Daily Chronicle, and it stopped publication on October 17, 1960, when it was absorbed by the Daily Mail. Its headquarters were located at Bouverie Street, off Fleet Street, in London, England, EC4Y 8DP.
The News Chronicle had considerable influence during its existence, being described as "the paper for intelligent people who like news". It was also noted for its editorial policy of campaigning for causes supported by its readers.
In 1955 it became known as the paper that gave the first published use of the word "scud" (an obsolete term for "shame"). In an article titled "Why I Am Scudding", author Roald Dahl explained that he was scudding away from his career as a writer to live on game, fish, and vegetables because "writing books is not very profitable".
Dahl's action caused some controversy because it was believed that the News Chronicle would lose trade if they started publishing articles about crime and violence. However, Dahl's article showed that the paper was already covering such topics, just not under that name. After this incident, the word "scud" began to be used frequently by the editors of the News Chronicle in other articles, which led to it becoming popular among sports fans in Britain.

The New York Times The Daily News was a British national regular newspaper published on a daily basis. Charles Dickens, who also served as the newspaper's first editor, launched The News in 1846. He remained its editor until his death in 1870.
His wife, Catherine, took over as editor after his death. She is credited with making many improvements to the paper and expanding its circulation. In 1872, she sold her share of the paper to John Thomson, who had been acting as managing director since the death of her husband two years earlier. Catherine Dickens died in 1890.
The News became a popular topic for writers during its lifetime. It is mentioned by Thackeray in his novel Vanity Fair (1847) and by George Eliot in Middlemarch (1871-1872). Today, it is considered by many to be one of the best newspapers in English history.
After editing The New York Times for several months in 1946, Charles Dickens returned to edit The News from July 4 to December 16, 1946. This period covers the election campaigns of James Roosevelt, son of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., the candidate favored by many Democrats.
The Boston News-Letter The Boston News-Letter, which was originally published on April 24, 1704, is considered to be the first continually published newspaper in British North America. The British government largely funded it, and it had a limited circulation. The governor signed off on all copies. It was also one of the first newspapers to use paid contributors.
It was started by Robert Godfrey, who owned the paper until his death in 1731. His son John took over and expanded the paper, moving it to new offices at the corner of Summer and Milk streets in 1732. In 1735, John Godfrey sold the paper for $100,000 to Joseph Greenleaf, who operated it with his sons as partners. In 1812, the last copy was printed before the city was hit by a major fire. When the paper returned from hiatus, it was renamed the Boston Daily Advertiser. In 1816, the name was changed back to the Boston News-Letter.
There were other newspapers circulating before The Boston News-Letter, but they were not being published continuously daily like today's papers. Some were local publications that covered news around a particular town or city, while others were broadsheets that covered national or international events.
In addition to its publication schedule, what makes The Boston News-Letter unique is that it is the only newspaper that has been in continuous publication since its inception.
I have a conveyer paper from 1947 with Don Bradman on the cover. In 1945 and 1951, two Australian weekly periodicals focused on poultry farming, as well as daily difficulties (The Leader). Weekly farming and stocking in Australia at that time included information on chicken farming.
Don Bradman was an international cricket player who was regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of the game. He was born on March 15, 1911 in Morley, South Australia and died on February 24, 2001 in Melbourne, Victoria. He played for the national team from 1933 to 1950 and scored 5200 runs in test matches alone. In domestic cricket, he represented South Australia from 1931 to 1950 and averaged over 50 with both bat and ball. He also coached South Australia from 1948 to 1949 and Western Australia from 1950 to 1952.
He started his career slowly but after the end of World War II, he dominated world cricket taking all ten of his tests against England between 1946 and 1951. During this time, he scored hundreds of runs and took many wickets out side the home country. In 1947, he was named the captain of the Australian team which toured England. The tour ended in failure as England won the series 2-1. However, Bradman's reputation as a batsman remained intact despite the loss.
