Breaking News stories: Current events
Investigated stories: Take a lot of time, and you have to do a lot of research about a certain topic.
Consumer News stories: Stories about what you buy and how it affects your life
Also when you are going to do an interview you should make sure to make some research about who you are interviewing before the day of your interview so you could be prepared and know to ask questions that are on a harder level scale. Make sure to answer the 5 W's too.
I can apply what I learned in my future stories. It would help me be more prepared for writing and interviewing people.
For the future class I think we should make an activity that will get us more involved with the class. Like for example: pick a topic and each person has to write a sentence about what they know and try to make sense of it with the collaboration of everybody.
She gave us this advise too “Good writing comes from good reporting."

Hey, it took me a while to post this, but I've been so tired lately.
On Thursday, Nana, Nyeisha, Sely, Emily, and I went to Nick News. Nana, Nyeisha, and I were interviewed about the topics that have been the most talked about lately: the Iraq War, the economy, health care, terrorism, the environment, and immigration.
There was a van that picked us up from HL and drove us down to Lucky Duck Productions. In the van, we talked about what we were most comfortable talking about on camera. When we got there, everyone was super nice, and we got sodas (to eat with our pizza,) from a really cool, vintage soda machine.
Nyeisha was the first to go. The woman who interviewed her said she did a great job, and said that I was up next. I was really nervous at first, but I knew I would be happy I did it after it was done. They ran a microphone through my shirt, and put powder on my face (real star treatment : ) JKJK) And then the interviewer started asking me questions. I talked about the war in Iraq, terrorism, and immigration. I think we all did pretty well, so hopefully they don't edit us out :)
The Nick News that we did is coming on April 13th, I'm not sure what time, but check it out!
It was such a good experience, and opportunity to be able to talk about my opinions, and hopefully make a difference. Hopefully, this will just be the beginning of opportunities like this for HL. I am so grateful to have been chosen, good thing I made the age limit. Usually, I don't like speaking in public, or being on camera, but I think I'm getting a lot better at it.
P.S. I'm sorry I couldn't come to the staff meeting.

Fur has been considered royal wear since pre-historic times . Every one from Queen Elizabeth the first to princess Diana have worn fur. Somewhere in the process of the fur attire era it came over to N,YC. I have to be honest going uptown from 42th fur isn't even spoken of. So why is it that people wear fur in the first place? . Is it to feel like a rich madmoselle or an old hollywood star;Wearing fur is something I will never understand .No I am not the type to take away a persons individuality . If you like it feel free to wear it just know that it looks like you killed your pet an a wearing it on your back.

OK! After a long dormancy, HL is about to wake from its slumber. After a year of being mentored, Associate Director, Melvin Johnson and the Director of Operations, Gisely Colon-Lopez, are ready to rev the program up to a more fevered pitch. Within the next week or so, we'll be launching the new interface. We're moving our site to a new server which gives us more ways to manipulate the content. We've already established more classes, many new students, new roles. It's time. Stay tuned.
