    Suggest grouping news by type- headlines, politics, financial, sports, entertainment, tabloid, etc.. The best organization would be to have sections which are incomplete- top stories, then maybe just headlines that stop with a "continued" at the bottom (clickable). That way I can quickly scroll through all sections, to see what catches my attention (as I do now), but faster becuase the sections are organized and familiar. Functionally- I suggest that if I click on a sports story, I would be taken to my story and below that, all sports news (also sub-organized by sport). If I go back to the home page and click on a financial headline- same thing. It takes me to all financial news (looks like the home page). I only need to go back to the home page to scroll again. The format which mixes stories is messy and a bit annoying- think in terms of small sections, leading to focused pages. The user can get to engaging articles much faster (see all of the best stories by category on the home page), then extend the time on the site, because we no longer need to scroll through mixed stories.

    Later- you can add an option to not view sections (like entertainment which I don't read)., but maybe keep it there labeled so I can add it back. My page then becomes very focused and personalized. The next step- give users the option to order the sections- like financial first, sports second. Then I have a must read personalized page unlike anything on the web. Thanks for the hard work- Yahoo finally improving- there is a lot of room to make Yahoo highly relevant again. Keep it up- great job Verizon!
