Preparing For Our "Chelsea" Moment

Chelsea Schneider, 2004 Indiana Student Journalist of the Year, says she can’t wait to come home for her “favorite holiday,” the IHSPA State Convention.

First as a Warren Central High School student, then a Franklin College journalism major/IHSPA assistant, and now as a session leader representing the Arizona Republic, Chelsea represents many who look forward to an annual gathering at Franklin College.
My office is a reflection of Chelsea’s holiday comparison. There are boxes of awards, bags and bag stuffers, table decorations, and lists of things yet to do before everyone converges next week for the 87th annual gathering at Franklin College.

Registrations went over the 500 mark early last week to prove that despite limitations on field trips and finances, advisers still think it’s important to bring students to an event where they can learn new things, share ideas, and celebrate successes.
As I look at the session topics, I wish that I could attend them. I think students will enjoy the leaders and their approach to a variety of journalistic areas and issues, and I think advisers will be energized by several initiatives that will be presented at the adviser business meeting/luncheon.

Must go…things to do…see you soon!

McCain and Obama Photos Available

In addition to the Obama photos available through our IHSPA photo service, Sarah Bumbalough, a junior on the Richmond High School Pierian staff, has sent photos of John McCain and Sarah Palin (see photo above) that she took when McCain announced Palin as his running mate at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Anyone who wants to use them for the price of Sarah’s photo credit (including her staff and school) can contact me.
I hope all staffs will send PDFs of their special election coverage for our Web site and articles about Indiana high school newspaper reporting.

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......filing chapter 11 protection.

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?

They bailout trouble finance company, but they will not bail out your credit card bills……You got no choice, and no point pointing finger but you can prevent similar things from happen again……

The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......because the top management will be concern about their own pay check……
Meanwhile if company was being acquired, there will be a great movement in terms of staff……eventually staff suffer also.
Some might feel that it sound stupid….. as there is long and Short position…but in reality there is still many different caliber CEO…..so there is still long and short…..They can ban short selling definitely they can do something about this.......

Are you a partisan?

Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member, House of representative again and ask for their views to not just comment on this, and what regulations they are going to commit and implementation the regulation, see who is hypocrite, which don’t implement after just mentioning in the election campaign.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible.... Finance and Media are the two only industries can shaken politics ( Maybe Hackers can ), please help to highlight also...
