added news scraping from google to junglescene

it was pretty easy to do the code is contained in the article:

$news_out =" " ;

$src = 'http://news.google.com/';
$found = 0;
$skip = 1;
$i = 1;
$fp = fopen ($src, " r" );
while ((!feof ($fp)) && (!$found))
{

$line = fgets($fp, 4096);
$line = str_replace(" src=/" ," src=http://news.google.com/" ," $line" );
$line = str_replace(" $line = str_replace(" /a> " ," " ," $line" );
$line = str_replace(" href=/" ," href=http://news.google.com/" ," $line" );
$line = str_replace(" style=cursor:hand;" ," " ," $line" );
$line = str_replace("  " ," " ," $line" );
$line = str_replace("  " ," " ," $line" );
$line = strip_tags (" $line" ," " );
$i = ++$i;
if ($i > 110)
{
$news_out .= $line;
}
}
fclose($fp);
