Tonight …

  • Posts are due tonight on Dr. Goldbacher. You got a message about the videos, her PowerPoints,  and some other data earlier this week
  • If you want to download any of what I shot get a download add-on such as Download YouTube as MP4 which is for Firefox; note the Download button added to YouTube video playback. I shot these at 1080p (HD) but the download seems limited to 720p (still HD). For that reason, you should consider scheduling an interview with Dr. Goldbacher for your group
  • Visit from Professor Jule Ann Henstenburg, director of La Salle’s nutrition program in the SONHS; I’ll shoot and post HD video which you can use, but again, try to schedule a follow-up for your final project; as before, you are required to write a 300-plus word post on our guest’s visit tonight; the angle is up to you, but remember that your blog talks about how La Salle (and Exploring Nutrition) is working to help solve issues of health, nutrition and obesity in our area. As always, give your story a news-feature-style lead, a clear conclusion, write a good (SEO) headline, get some sort of art and include at least two links to other articles or resources. Due next Thursday, April 14

    (Lauren Stair)

  • For general use, here are two more issues raised by TakePart: food deserts and SNAP benefits
  • Check in on the piece on urban food markets for the use of audio, customized Google map, optimized photos, depth of research—maybe a model for your final project
  • Assign your group reporting plan for next week (see Assignments)
  • Finish and post slideshows; FTP to and link to that from an optimized still image
  • As part of the reporting plan, bring some footage next week for Ben Kalina’s second visit; each group needs some sort of video footage for Ben to discuss, and an idea of what you plan for your story so we can talk about possible gaps
  • Interviewing resources from last week, PBS on investigative interviews; this from KDMC on source types and my condensed interviewing tip sheet (also a handout)

  • I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
