Net Neutrality Dangers

Problem

The next round in the Battle for Net Neutrality begins today. http://technology.doseofnews.com/

Nearly 200 companies including Amazon, Netflix, and the ACLU will attempt to show users what the Internet could look like without net neutrality rules to protest the reversal of Obama-era regulations.

Regulations prohibit Internet service providers from slowing down certain websites or giving special and some preferential treatment to others, potentially for their profit.

Websites and apps are posting memes, GIFs, and alerts that show slow loading of content, the blocked symbol, or requests for payment for faster service.

Don’t worry, your Internet won’t actually slow down. The goal is to encourage users to send comments to the Federal Communications Commission.

Creating Content

Other

The Ws and H, are six questions to answer in information gathering for journalism research, and investigations. The facts formula.

What is the purpose of disseminating this content? Does the presentation of the material clarify or improve the audience's understanding? Is there a question of public policy, community benefit or social importance? Is the use of this material the best way to tell the story? How to justify your decision? Are you ready to explain the reasoning to your audience? How might this material be used later? Do you plan to use the material in promos, and social positions? When to notify to your audience, warning them that they are about to see or hear questionable content? How much detail should the warning provide? Under what circumstances are bodies of victims of accidents or crimes displayed? How much detail is needed to convey the look of the story? Do you cross the line to attract the desire of the spectators? How can you tell the story accurately respecting the rights and privacy of victims or their families? Do the images add to the perception that an area is violent or unsafe? Can you discuss the pros and cons with a diverse group? Would you be willing to include everyone in that discussion, as you are more likely to be representative of your audience? Should you also call others who may be able to give you a view of a stranger and perhaps a media ethics expert who can help with talking points? When covering live events that change quickly, have you taken enough precautions to prevent inappropriate images and sound from being emitted? Is anyone else available to help decide what and how are they used? Have crews been taught to stay out of the picture during transmissions?

Nude Recreation Week

Idea

I first became acquainted with it, when as a young reporter I attended a Miss Nude World Pageant at The Seminole Nudist Camp in Davie Florida. I brought along a friend who suddenly showed much interest in journalism.

Seminole Health Club & Resort, Broward's sole remaining nudist camp, converts to campground - http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2013-09-13/news/fl-nudist-resort-closes...

Mall Chaos

Problem

NYPD evacuates a New York City Mall after shots were fired inside. As the danger increases and folks stay home while shopping online, countless of malls across the US are closing down, there’s a Web site devoted to “dead malls” that are out of commission.

Global Warming Woes

Problem

Although some so-called world leaders claim it is a hoax, global warming continues to worry climate experts.

Record-breaking and dangerously hot weather continues to affect part of our planet as it is forecast for much of California and the Southwest over this weekend, as temperatures soar well above 100 degrees in many spots.

In Los Angeles, a temperature record that's stood since 1886 95 degrees may be broken on Saturday. Excessive heat advisories and warnings have been posted for much of western Arizona, southern Nevada, and The Southland of California, with 120 degrees.

Green Card Eligible?

Issue

A young American boy has found himself caught in the middle of an immigration quagmire after a judge ruled the immigrant child, who was abandoned by his father ought to get a green card under a special status created by Congress in 1990.

However, US Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement aka ICE officials, under the Trump administration, says no way, Jose.

Nobody Really Knows?

Idea

@Potus believes Russia meddled in US election but also other countries 'nobody really knows for sure'

The question on the eve of meeting a man he claims he knows, but may not really know him is... Does he know what he is saying?

Trump, on eve of Putin meeting, says 'nobody really knows' about Russian hacking https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/07/06/trump-eve-putin-...

The Mourning After

Problem

Hours after July Fourth celebrations had ended in NYC, an officer was executed while sitting inside her police cruiser.

The Bronx is apparently going back to those bad days of violence. The northernmost of NYC's five boroughs has had it's up and downs, but most recently has seen a spike in murder by shootings.

A member of the NYPD was shot to death early Wednesday morning after being ambushed in a marked patrol car by a man with a revolver who was later killed by police officers.
