RSS feeds (sometimes called "Web feeds") are a way of presenting changing content in a format that can be understood by a computer program.

EITHER Go to the Mass page or the About Today page. In your browser's address bar you will see a feed icon next to the page address. Click on it, and your browser will give you some options for which feed to use and how to use it.
