4 student journalists to receive Awards at SPJ meeting in OKC

Oklahoma, 14.03.2006 15:38

Four World Internet News stories were selected by the Society of Professional Journalists for the prestigious Mark of Excellence Awards. Four World Internet News stories were selected by the Society of Professional Journalists for the prestigious Mark of Excellence Awards. Three students from the UH School of Communication are to receive Mark of Excellence Awards in late April from the Society of Professional Journalists, Region 8 for stories they produced about Houston in 2005. Matt Dougherty, Curtis Delaney and Jenny Yau will be given awards for their reporting work.Dougherty, a broadcast journalism major, was selected for two pieces. “Questions Linger Over the Effectiveness of Prop. 12,” a story that investigates the effects of lawsuit reform on the medical insurance industry in Texas, was tabbed in the TV General News Reporting category. “A Day in the Life of a Male Prostitute,” a story that profiles male sex workers in the Montrose area of Houston, was chosen in the TV Feature category. Delaney, also a broadcast journalism major, was selected in the Radio In-Depth Reporting category for his investigative piece, “Houston’s Water Quality Improving.” The story examines the quality level of Houston’s main reservoir, Lake Houston. Yau, meanwhile, is a theatre major minoring in journalism, who was chosen in the Radio News Reporting category for her localized coverage of the break-away union movement in “AFL-CIO Splits Over Do-or-Die Unionizing Strategy.” “We are happy to receive the SPJ awards. It’s one thing to be recognized by the general public, but when it is by your colleagues it is especially meaningful,” said Dougherty. All the work was produced as part of World Internet News, UH SOC’s convergent newsroom that is the brainchild of professors Fred Schiff and Craig Crowe, and alumnus/managing editor Aaron Racicot. The half-hour, multi-media news shows were broadcast locally on Channel 17 WTP-TV and 90.1 FM KPFT. They can also be viewed on the Internet at www.worldinternetnews.org. “What makes us different is that we’re not covering events. We’re covering the enduring, unresolved issues in the Houston metro region,” said Schiff. “And we’re also trying to put issues in historical context. Basically, the commercial news media are flat. We have more depth than the corporate media because we have the advantage of writing the first draft of history with all the expertise that a major public research university can offer.” Racicot said he hopes the awards are a step in raising the profile of UH’s journalism program. “World Internet News is a project that is unique to the University of Houston,” said Racicot. “Other universities are attempting convergent newsrooms, but none have integrated investigative and depth reporting like we have. I’m very happy for the students that won, but I’m also proud of the people that have supported the project since it started in 2003. I think we have a good thing here. It is an enriching educational experience for the students and I hope this is just the beginning and World Internet News will continue to thrive for years to come.” Dougherty, Delaney and Yau will be presented with their awards on April 28 in Oklahoma City and will be told then if they have been chosen for the prestigious SPJ MOE National Awards to be presented in Chicago in August.

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.03.2006 15:10

1,800 Santa Cruz County workers have launched a one-day strike against a Board of Supervisors which they say, "so far refuses to provide wages comparable to that of comparable workers in comparable counties." Their struggle is the same struggle facing all working families in local communities, and this strike is seen as an opportunity to build solidarity across the Central Coast.

Frankreich - Proteste, Besetzungen, Streiks im ganzen Land

Austria, 14.03.2006 12:07

Was ist los in Frankreich? - Seit die Regierung das neoliberale Gesetzesprojekt CPE verabschiedet hat, kommt Frankreich nicht mehr zu Ruhe: am 7. März gingen etwa 400.000 auf die Straßen; 1 Million Menschen demonstrierten dann am 10. März; ein drittel der 80 Unis sind besetzt und/oder im Streik, die Pariser Sorbonne wurde besetzt und brutal und unter heftigem militanten Widerstand geräumt. Und das scheint erst der Anfang zu sein...



FBI names Indymedia, Food Not Bombs and “Anarchists” to Domestic Terrorist Watch List

Portland, 14.03.2006 11:39

In a guest lecture at the University of Texas School of Law on Wednesday, FBI Supervisory Senior Resident Agent G. Charles Rasner listed Indymedia, Food Not Bombs, and the Communist Party of Texas as "Terrorist Watch" cause groups in Austin.

Rasner gave a presentation entitled "Counter-Terrorism Efforts in Texas" to a U.S. Law and National Security class at the Law School. He used PowerPoint slides to illustrate the nature of the terrorist threat in Central Texas. The word "Unclassified" appeared prominently in bold red letters on the opening PowerPoint slide...

Rasner then placed the FBI's Central Texas "Terrorist Watch List" on the screen. On a list of approximately ten groups, Food Not Bombs was listed seventh. Indymedia was listed tenth, with a reference specifically to IndyConference 2005. The Communist Party of Texas also made the list. Rasner explained that these groups could have links to terrorist activity. He noted that peaceful-sounding group names could cover more violent extremist tactics. [ read more ]

OMSI and the promotion of animal testing

Portland, 14.03.2006 10:38

I was lucky to chaperone a group of middle school students to OMSI on Friday. The students got this special 3pm-6pm field trip due to their extra-curricular participation in MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Academy) at school.

The first display inside the doors was an OHSU display promoting animal testing. The sole purpose of the display was to talk about the supposed benefits of animal testing. Besides a 4-panel display going on and on about the glories of animal testing, they also had an interactive display where a question would be asked and the children were to guess the answer before lifting a panel to reveal the correct answer. To provide a hint, above each panel was a small bag that said "Push" which would provide a recorded animal sound when pushed.

Report Back: Presentation By Capt. Yee, Former Muslim Millitary Chaplain At Guantanamo

Portland, 14.03.2006 10:38

Captain James Yee is the former Muslim military chaplain for the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Cuba, where the military is holding nearly 600 suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban operatives captured in Afghanistan and elsewhere. In December of 2005 Yee spoke at the First Unitarian Church. He had a sad story to tell concerning his treatment by the U.S. military.

After an exemplary service as chaplain, Yee was suddenly arrested when traveling to visit his family here in the U.S., held in solitary confinement for 2 1/2 months, and then released without charges. He has written a book about his life and his experiences called, "For God and Country: Faith and Patriotism Under Fire."

A program from this presentation is currently playing on Public Access television. At the end of this report, I've included audio files of his remarks.



LETTER TO ME LOVES

Portland, 14.03.2006 10:38

Dear Agnes and Denis,

I miss you both and hope you have found all the answers to the questions we are all haunted with, like what and who are we?

Things here are changing so fast it takes your breath away, our country--- the United States of America has become the terror of the world. We now are in the midst of preparing for another war in Iran, will it happen? I do not know.

Our President is hated throughout the world, Americans visiting other countries use foreign passports if they can get them, our military is being slowly destroyed in Iraq and our leaders are now trying to convince the people that it is a good idea to have our ports run by a country who has traditionally hated the U.S.



Schumacher Furs Protest Report (Vanity thy name is Fur Hag), March 11

Portland, 14.03.2006 07:39

Throughout Saturday about 45 protesters arrived to hold signs, leaflet, enthusiastically chant, and eat some of the best vegan doughnuts ever made (thanks to Food Fight! Vegan Grocery and RiseUp Doughnuts).

One protester drew beautiful pictures of foxes on the pavement with sidewalk chalk. ( http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/03/335596.shtml) Others wrote about the cruelty of the fur industry. Several protesters staged impromptu street theater showing the killing, skinning, and wearing of a fox near the front entrance of Schumacher. Meanwhile Schumacher people scurried around with cameras inside the store filming us, occasionally coming out, no doubt looking for any possible reason to call on the police. But no luck - to the apparent dismay of the Schumachers, our protest was vigorous but well within the bounds of our First Amendment rights. The Schumachers seem to be desperate to get rid of us (evidenced by numerous threats to protesters) as we educate the public about fur. And they have reason to be worried:

Education will work on most anyone with a compassionate heart. Hardly an AR radical, Martha Stewart has come out against fur after her vegetarian daughter made her aware of animal issues. Martha recently publicly stated, "So much violence in the world seems beyond our control, but this is one cruelty we can stop by being informed consumers."

1,800 Santa Cruz County workers have launched a one-day strike against a Board of Supervisors which they say, "so far refuses to provide wages comparable to that of comparable workers in comparable counties." Their struggle is the same struggle facing all working families in our communities -- farm and food processing workers fighting for decent pay and basic human rights, UC workers fighting for pay parity, Ralph's employees fighting the company's scheme to de-unionize their workplace, Natividad workers fighting the privatization of the Monterey County Hospital, hotel workers rising up to fight for a living wage -- and this strike will be an opportunity to build our solidarity across the Central Coast.

February Protests - Calls for Impeachment Rising

In New Orleans, "anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan staged a protest at one of the city's shuttered housing projects Tuesday, a day after 12,000 families left homeless by last year's hurricanes were forced to leave their federally funded hotel rooms." [ read more ]

No Justice for Fouad Kaady-six months since his killing

Portland, 13.03.2006 13:39

Six months have passed since Fouad Kaady, a 27 year old Lebanese American man, was brutally shot and killed by agents of the Clackamas County Sheriff's office, and the Sandy "Police" department.

Much has happened since this killing of an innocent, unarmed, badly burned, injured, bleeding, and naked man. Much has not.

First, many of us, shocked at the crass "reporting' from the "Main Stream" media, upon hearing that a naked man had been shot and killed by police, and that, in usual fashion, the police were awaiting toxicology reports to explain the victim's "bizarre behavior," began the process of attempting to learn the real story before the MSM and the cops could bury it. What we learned was truly frightening:



WWeek article on BTP/PDX Press Benefit

Portland, 13.03.2006 10:38

Jason Simms, an independent reporter, has been persistent in trying to contact me about the event that happened last weekend. Simms is writing the article for the Willamette Weekly. I've refused to contact him except to tell him that I won't talk to him due to my perception of his biases based upon his questions. Simms sent me the copy of his article. I think that it will probably get cut up and rearranged significantly by the WWeek editors. Therefore, I feel that it's important to lay the entire copy out here beforehand.

salaud adds: So here's how it went in draft: "Our friends at PDXPress.net (click here!) tried to save a charity on the verge of ruin, some activist named "Topher" gave a speech, he was heckled, thank you for your views activist, now let's move on to the music."

Se here we are in the spun-chop final version: "A innocent local band of high school punks was targeted only by activists who only work online at an event put on by the altruistic promoters www.PDXPress.net (click here!), but why?"

March 13th Prayer Vigil For Tre Arrow

Portland, 13.03.2006 04:38

Tre encourages all supporters across the world to join in a prayer vigil on Monday, March 13th at 6pm, to gather strength for his upcoming 24-day hunger strike. Every person's focused intention makes an impact. If you can't make it to Victoria, feel free to gather yourselves at this time and tune into us who will be gathered outside the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre.

Tre asks respectfully that his designated spokespeople in Canada represent the message of this vigil to the media. It is very important for all in attendance to honor this request and not engage with the media, for the purpose of not allowing our peaceful intentions to be distorted.

Over the course of the past fourteen years, Tre has lived a life dedicated to peaceful activism in social, environmental and political realms. As an extremely effective and outspoken organizer, Tre found himself at the forefront of an environmental movement, which successfully interfered with industrial powers. As a result, he has fallen victim to what appears to be a widespread campaign to silence the voices of conscience that choose to speak truth to power.
