Journalism has taken many different approaches, and international reporting is a very essential and crucial aspect of journalism. York College recently had a seminar about international reporting, which makes up a large chunk of the news.  As long as the idea of media goes back, international reporting has been covered by journalists all over the place, and about all types of events globally.

International journalism is a great area for journalists to explore. There is so much more going on in the world and beyond your country’s borders. International reporting enables millions of people to know about what is transpiring in other countries and how global activities affect the rest of the world.

As a journalism student and a writer for my school’s newspaper, I strongly believe that more journalism students should be engaging in international journalism. Foreign policy and diplomacy is a subject that affects people all over the world and being able to report internally allows you to interact and meet people from all walks of life.

Journalism and international affairs allows you to enter into a world of an increasingly globalized, technology-focused workforce which is the reality that it all comes down to. Also, I would say taking a few classes in political science is great for a journalism portfolio especially if you are interested in international reporting. Both journalism and politics are designed to give students a strong conceptual understanding of both communication media and international politics.

Business And Law Reporting, a Global Phenomenon!

In the world of journalism there are many aspects that can be taken into account when you are reporting stories. Business and law reporting are two main types of stories that are covered on a daily basis by journalists globally. The business journalist or reporter covers in-depth reports about the latest in business, launch of products, stock markets etc.

There are many shows dedicated only for business news on television whereas in newspapers, one can find a special section dedicated to this subject. Without business journalism, there is a lot of information regarding the economy and the business world that the public will be unaware of.

High-quality business reporting is at the heart of strong and sustainable organizations, financial markets, and economies.

It allows organizations to present a cohesive explanation of their business and helps them engage with internal and external stakeholders, including customers, employees, shareholders, creditors, and regulators, while also promoting better internal decision making, the International Federation of Accounts reported.

Like business reporting, legal reporting is essential to almost every media organization. Covering court cases that affects the lives of members of the public is an important task for news media. The judiciary is one of the three branches of government, and covering what goes on within our courts is one of the overseer roles of the media.

Also, the public has a great interest in what the courts do, especially in criminal court cases. Criminal justice coverage is necessary for the public so that they can know that justice is served and criminal are punished for their crimes. Also, this type of reporting can also expose the unfairness in the legal system for victims or defendants.                                       Both legal and business reporting play vital roles in media organizations.

After reading the New York Times’ piece on How Facebook Is Changing the Way Its Users Consume Journalismand taking it into consideration, it occurred to me that traditional news is really taking a lot of competition from social media and news feed engines.                 I personally use several forms of social media and nonetheless, I gather a lot of news updates and information about news stories locally and globally and it does come in quite handy for me.

Social media sites such as Twitter and Google News, can also exert a large influence, Facebook is at the forefront of a fundamental change in how people consume journalism. Through social media a lot of news organizations are taking a beating against miniature citizen journalism through social media. Also, since more people are joining social media, they have a tendency of gathering more of their news stories from these sites, instead of looking for a newspaper to look for news stories or to know what is happening outside their window.

I find that through social media people are finding out more about what’s happening in the news and they are receiving the information they want or need about subjects they finding interesting, or have a preference in.

Hybrid systems like News Feed that are helping you find the things that you care about, which most people will find more appealing than having to search for their news through a traditional news method. However, social media’s news standards are not comparable to traditional news.

However, why is there such a craving for nail art? Well, the fashion industry has adapted nail as an essential part of fashion at the moment. The different seasons follow stylish styles and designs that play along with the other trends. For instance some designers, Henry Holland’s models had blue and black houndstooth patterned nails whereas Meadham Kirchoff used specially designed nail wraps featuring eggs and ghosts and other cutesy motifs.

Dating back to its use in the ancient world, about five thousand years ago it was used in India. In ancient China, it was made form a combination of beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes, and gum arabic and rose petals. The Chinese would dip their hands in this mixture until their finger nails turned red or pink. In 1300 BC, the color of the nail polish reflected social rank in Egypt.  Cleopatra wore red.

Nail polish sales in the US were up 67% between 2010 and 2011, with non-traditional shades and textures becoming more and more popular according to the New York Times. The nail art industry is growing more than ever, both sales and popularity. Nail art is a way for women to make a fashion statement. Women are looking to make nail art one of the next best things apart from diamonds.
