If you’ve been struggling to find things in our new layout, this brief tutorial video should help you to get your bearings.

These images no longer auto-rotate, which gives more time for people to read the headlines and excerpts. Every time we add a new story to the featured content area, it pushes the oldest of the top 10 down into the full site feed below.
The second area of concern is the sidebar – specifically the search field. We hid the sidebar to minimize the visual distractions on screen, but it’s still there. Just click here, which is located at the top-left of the page:
Then you’ll see the full sidebar. Just click again to close:
Those are the big changes. There are category menus at the top and the bottom of the website (click the button at the top that says “Browse Our Articles & Podcasts” to see the dropdown.
