People, places, and events for today:

NHL Playoffs
Today is National Speak In Complete Sentences Day, so put abbreviated conversations to the side for the next 24 hours.
It’s the last day for the May 2018 News Playlist,  curated, as always, by The Nightshift’s music editor/DJ Miles Geauxbye and his pal Tschugge (from Switzerland). Just click the short link and, courtesy of Spotify, you’ve got a whole playlist of music to get through the news. And remember: Miles and Tschugge add to and delete songs from the playlist on an almost daily basis…so it’s not always the same list twice. Here’s the link for the May playlist:  May Tunes
The front pages (and sometimes more) of the world’s great English language newspapers are linked below. The International Headlines are all at your fingertips, below. As always, thanks for dropping by. We have added the English language feed of Agence France-Presse to the news index along with the McClatchy DC News Bureau. Also new: the UPI international news feed and Xinhua, a newsfeed focusing on China, Asia, and the Pacific. And, finally, we have a link to, which covers the world oil markets. Seems appropriate considering the dynamics of that most necessary commodity.
