SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by globalnews.ca.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Breaking news Confidence: 74% Arrow up

Breaking news, interchangeably termed latebreaking news and also known as a special report or special coverage or news bulletin, is a current issue that broadcasters feel warrants the interruption of scheduled programming and/or current news in order to report its details.

Its use is also assigned to the most significant story of the moment or a story that is being covered live.

It could be a story that is simply of wide interest to viewers and has little impact otherwise.

Many times, breaking news is used after the news organization has already reported on the story.

When a story has not been reported on previously, the graphic and phrase "Just In" is sometimes used instead.

Television in Canada Confidence: 73% Arrow up

Television in Canada officially began with the sign-on of the nation's first television stations in Montreal and Toronto in 1952.

As with most media in Canada, the television industry, and the television programming available in that country, are strongly influenced by media in the United States, perhaps to an extent not seen in any other major industrialized nation outside the U.S. As a result, the government institutes quotas for "Canadian content".

Nonetheless, new content is often aimed at a broader North American audience, although the similarities may be less pronounced in the predominantly French-language province of Quebec.

Global News Confidence: 72% Arrow up

Global News is the news and current affairs division of Global Television Network in Canada, overseeing all local and national news programming on the network's twelve owned-and-operated stations (O&Os).

In addition, it provides news programming to Corus' three CTV affiliates in Ontario.

Weather forecasting Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location.

Human beings have attempted to predict the weather informally for millennia, and formally since the nineteenth century.

Weather forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change.
