Feeling Hungry?

Feeling Hungry?

Feeling a little peckish? Wondering what you can dine on at home tonight? Click to connect with the PortMac.News 'Order Cuisine Online' section & choose something nice to nibble on tonight!

Our new 'Order Cuisine Online' section on the 'Eat' tab above is just one of the new features you'll find on PortMac.News.

When we launched the PortMac.News web portal just before Christmas 2018 we were unsure of what format the site should take.

Now, after 6 months of online activity some trends have become obvious, and the new version of our software reflects the preferences revealed by those trends.

Launch of ‘The Globe’ and the end of ‘Sports Reporter’:

As news providers we aren’t often blessed by a deluge of news, but thanks to two elections, Donald Trump & Brexit things have been pretty rosy up until now. The unexpected problem that resulted from that news flood was how to categorise those news stories into appropriate news sections within the PortMac.News website. 

What has become obvious to us is that we need to have a clearer definition of what constitutes a ‘Local Story’ and therefore, what does not.

‘The Independent’ news section has ended up carrying local, state & international news stories, where as it should really be focused on The Hastings (And perhaps to a lesser extent on State news).

Our general news coverage on topics such as global economics, climate change, international affairs and trade etc., whilst impacting on our local community both directly in some cases & indirectly in others, really needed a home of its own.

At the same time it must be said that our ‘Sports Reporter’ section has failed to gain traction in the marketplace.

Thus in PortMac.News V3.0, the ‘Sports Reporter’ section has disappear and has been replaced by ‘The Globe’, whilst ‘The Independent’ will be re-focused on the Hastings and regional news.

‘The Globe’ will be our new home for relevant world news, economic trends & analysis, climate & environmental news etc.

Sports coverage will be rolled into the ‘Citizen Reporter’ news section.

The ‘Citizen Reporter’ section itself will be the subject of a forthcoming major social intuitive by PortMac.News (TBA).

Our popular ‘Street’ section will shortly be sub-divided into three areas: ‘Fashion’, ‘Tech & Lifestyle’ & ‘Seed’ – stories focused on global young achievers.

‘Classified Ads’ & ‘Crowd Funding’ :

Unfortunately we have not had the time up until now to do these two categories justice. As soon as time permits both will be re-launched.

VideoWeek:

As Users will have noticed we are ramping up our video production.

We now have the capacity to produce 1–2 fully edited 2-5 minute mini-documentaries p/w – the problem is finding suitable ‘Subject Matter’.

We need news stories or events to video that warrant the effort (Note: a 5 minute video takes approx. 7hr to produce). Let us know if you have subject matter!!

Thanks for your support and we look forward to delivering even more quality, FREE Local news direct to you in the future.

    Just love the story you wrote on Ashley, very well put together. I have to agree with you in saying that Tennis Australia has just been gifted an ambassador and at long last one without an attitude.
