Sie alle zieht das alte Anwesen in seinen Bann, längst überwunden geglaubte Spannungen lodern wieder auf, und neue erotische Verwicklungen bahnen sich an.

Over 1,300 total pages ... To the young man or woman choosing a Navy career field, whether for one enlistment or for 30 years, the journalist rating offers endless avenues for an imaginative, yet mature, thinker. Many of the duties and responsibilities of the journalist rank among Americans’ favorite hobbies and pastimes, such as writing, broadcasting and photography. The Navy journalist learns and practices a distinguished profession and becomes an official representative of the Navy in public affairs matters. The first enlisted specialists to work full time in the field of Navy journalism were Naval Reserve personnel selected during the early years of World War II. They were designated Specialist X (Naval Correspondents). In 1948, under a major overhaul affecting almost every enlisted rating, the journalist (JO) rating was established. MAJOR TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the major tasks and responsibilities of the Navy journalist, the personal traits required for one to best perorm the duties of the rating, the applicable NECs, and the purpose of the JO 3 & 2 training manual (TRAMAN). In our democratic society, government depends on the consent of the governed. This important principle means that, in the long run, the United States government does only what the people want it to do. Therefore, we can have a Navy only if the people know and understand the importance of the Navy and support it. The Navy, like the other services, depends on this country’s citizens for the four key tools of its trade — personnel, money, materials and the authority to carry out its mission. As a Navy journalist, your main function will be to make the facts about your Navy available to the Navy’s three main publics — the people at your ship or station, Navy people in general and the people of the United States as a whole.

Blogger or Journalist? Evaluating What Is the Press in the Digital Age

ISBN: 1448883741

Category: Juvenile Nonfiction

From the Introduction: The days of relying on the newspaper delivery boy to deliver information to households are long over. The Internet and mobile phone technologies have changed how information is gathered and delivered in ways that can't be overstated. They have allowed people worldwide to gather, share, and access news as it's happening. The Internet and sites such as Facebook and YouTube have made it possible for anyone to reach a broad, global audience and for anyone with a computer to be a news provider. There is an enormous amount of content available online, on just about any topic. Viewers and readers must weed through this information to find sources that they trust and that they can rely on, in the same way that people read their daily paper or watch their favorite television news broadcast. The difference is the people who write for newspapers or television news are journalists-people whose job it is to research and deliver news to the public. When you go online, you find content from lots of different people, many of whom are not actual journalists, but interested citizens who want to share information with the public, much like journalists do. These non-journalists include writers of blogs and producers of independent news stories-people who are not working for official media outlets like established news channels or publications. Here, we will look at the differences between journalists and this new breed of news providers. We will discuss what professional standards journalists must follow that bloggers are not bound to, as well as what laws protect journalists but do not offer the same protection for non-journalists. Also discussed will be the roles different types of news providers serve in society, and how our definition of journalism is changing. The purpose is to help consumers of online news better understand where the news they read is coming from, what news they can trust, how to tell the difference between fact and opinion, and how to put together everything they read to form their own ideas about current events-and then perhaps even to share their ideas in their own online publications or blogs.

Ein gefeierter Künstler, ein liebender Sohn, eine Suche nach dem eigenen Leuchten Mit einer einzigen beiläufigen Bemerkung wischt Bear Bavinsky (gefeierter Maler, zahlreiche Ex-Frauen, siebzehn Kinder) jede Hoffnung seines Lieblingssohnes Pinch beiseite, auch nur halb so viel Talent zu haben wie er. Desillusioniert zieht es Pinch raus in die Welt, in Kanada versucht er sich an einer Biografie über Bear, als Italienischlehrer in London hat er es fast geschafft zu vergessen, dass auch er einmal Großes vorhatte. Seine wahre Begabung findet er schließlich doch noch, und er schmiedet einen schier unmöglichen Plan, nicht nur sein eigenes Leuchten zu entfalten, sondern auch das Andenken seines Vaters zu retten. Kann man gleichzeitig ein gefeierter Künstler und ein liebender Vater sein? Muss ein Sohn seinen Eltern verzeihen, nur weil sie bedeutend sind? Tom Rachman hat einen elektrisierenden und immer wieder auch nachdenklich stimmenden Roman geschrieben über das Streben nach Anerkennung – im Leben und in der Kunst.
