NOTICE:

You may have noticed that we haven't posted news for a while. Due to certain occurrences recently, NSHN will end it's first season as your preferred news source on the latest not well known stories/developments.

We will be back in early September, 2015. The news will not be posted until then. This also means that all emails or applications will still be accepted but will not be checked regularly until late August, 2015.

 If you would like to apply to help NSHN next season be sure to check out our link below to "Join the Team" page. We are looking for people to help find the news and some editors.

Just so you know, all news that transpires over the summer months will not be covered by NSHN. 

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.

And now a message from our founder:

"I personally want to thank you for supporting NSHN for it's first season. I hope to get more people involved with the production of this site and am glad that you have enjoyed it so far. I am looking forward to the coming years with NSHN."

Thank you oh so very much,

-Newton, Founder of NSHN

BREAKING NEWS:

We here at NSHN believe in giving you the news that you don't hear, but today we are going to make an exception. A new vaccine blocks every strand of HIV tested. It works by using a protein that surrounds the virus, trapping it from infecting cells. In all of the tests it has blocked every single strand of HIV.

ANOUNCEMENTS:

We will be offline until March. We may still post a few posts like the one above, but we are going through another changing phase. It is not sure what/if we will change but, the result, we hope, will be terrific.
