***** NOT A TEACHER *****
I only wanted to gently remind you that in American English, the word "news" is considered singular.
Thus, "There has been no news of him." (No news has been of him.)
Here is a reportedly true story:
Many years ago, a famous American newspaper owner insisted on using "news" as a plural word. One day, he sent a message
to his office that read something like this: "Are there any news?" Someone in his office answered: "Not a new."
