Extract news headlines and display in table

This script will find headlines from danish soccer website www.bold.dk.
The pieces of news are then rendered in a UITable and has an onTab on each link, allowing you to visit the piece of news to read the rest.

Sharing so that others can be inspired :slight_smile:
