Alton Sterling's Family Demands Action From Baton Rouge Officials
Huffington Post - 5 months
Alton Sterling’s frustrated family members and their supporters confronted Baton Rouge officials this week, demanding an update in the nearly 3-month-old investigation into the 37-year-old black man’s death. A police officer fatally shot Sterling near a convenience store where he sold CDs in July. The shooting sparked protests across the country against police misconduct. On Monday, 50 demonstrators had gathered outside City Hall to march to the governor’s mansion when they realized they had an unexpected opportunity to speak with officials in the building. “While we were outside, we found out a police reform meeting was being held inside,” Arthur Reed told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. Reed is founder of Stop The Killing, the group that released cell phone footage of Sterling’s death. The protesters, including Reed and several members of Sterling’s family, decided to go inside. “We’re concerned by a lack of answers in the shooting,” said Reed. “The famil ...

UCLA Campus Report: UC's New Investment Chief and More
Bruins Nation - about 3 years
A look at some of the non-sports stories making headlines around campus An occasional report from around campus that recognizes that UCLA is a school with a world-class reputation for research and innovation and whose people make real impact on the real world: This week's news includes news of a new hire by the UC system earning a million dollar salary, diversity among undergraduate applicants to UCLA and the development of a risk calculator that predicts survival in heart failure patients. UC's new investment chief's compensation could top $1 million I'm going to lead with something a little different in this version of UCLA campus news. The Los Angeles Times' Larry Gordon is reporting that the University of California's compensation for its new investment chief could top $1 million. Now, this isn't out of line for some managing a pension fund of over 82 billion dollars, not at all. I'm not suggesting that it's too much money. I just felt that with all the talk about ...

Where Is The Cast Of 'Newsies' Today?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's hard to believe "Newsies" has been around since 1992. Directed by choreographer Kenny Ortega (who you can also thank for the the "High School Musical" series), the film was a major box office flop, but later gained a cult following on home video. Now, it's been turned into a Broadway musical that has earned eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, winning Best Choreography and Best Original Score. For those of you who have been waking up every day for the past 21 years with "Seize The Day" stuck in your head, this is for you. Scroll down to see where the cast of the beloved Disney movie is today. David Moscow, "David Jacobs" (youtube/getty) Oh hey, Duncan, from your favorite failed 1999 TV show "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane."

Too Good to Ignore
The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Portland Center Stage's JAW playwrights' festival is too good not to cover. by Alison Hallett BACK IN NOVEMBER, Portland Center Stage made it known that they would no longer be extending press tickets to the Mercury, explaining that they were dissatisfied with the level of coverage they'd been receiving from us. At the time, we promised to continue to review shows at PCS by purchasing tickets on our own. Fast forward a few months, and that hasn't actually happened yet, because... Well, it's kind of like in grade school, when everyone but you is invited to a slumber party, even the girl who always smells like egg salad; and though you weren't invited, your mom tells you to stop by anyway to drop off a birthday present. You don't really want to do it, because you feel bad you weren't invited—and besides, there are a ton of other fun parties that night—but you also feel like you should, because... the girl has cancer, or something.

Doc: Judge accused of misconduct has mental issues
Fox News - over 3 years
The doctor of a Michigan county judge accused of misconduct says he suffers from a mental condition that led to abnormal, overly confident public statements. Dr. David Jacobi testified Tuesday that he diagnosed Wayne County Judge Wade McCree last year with a condition called "hypomania." The diagnosis came after McCree sent a shirtless photo of himself to a courthouse employee and told a reporter, "No shame in my game." McCree is undergoing a hearing in Ann Arbor stemming from a different matter that will help determine whether he keeps his job. The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission says he acted irresponsibly when he had an affair with a woman while presiding over a case against the father of her child. McCree testified last week he should have transferred the case immediately.

Pushing Editorial Into World of Apps
Wall Street Journal - almost 4 years
By Jackie Bischof The small startup 29th Street Publishing is quietly trying to revolutionize magazine publishing, one app at a time.The Midtown-based company promises to take the technical wizardry out of app making, easing the pathway to subscription revenue for those with eager—if nonpaying—online audiences. With clients drawn largely from New York City's deep ranks of freelance writers and independent editors, 29th Street helps develop and maintain simple apps for serialized content. The publishing staff also provides gentle nudges to get new editions out on time."It's the combination of the publishing industry shrinking, the technology and the New York 'get-it-doneness' right now that's making [this model] possible," said David Jacobs, a company co-founder. The goal, he said, is to help writers and editors "own and communicate directly with their audience. Also to pay writers fairly without compromising the quality of the experience."Kevin Nguyen, editor of the website Bygone Burea ...

Why we won’t have tablet-native journalism
Reuters.com - about 4 years
Last week, when the Daily died, I declared that the reason, in part, was that tablet-native journalism was impossible. And I got a lot of rather vehement pushback, including some smart commentary from John Gruber, taking the other side of the argument. That most existing iPad magazine apps are slow, badly-designed, can’t search, etc. does not mean iPad magazine apps cannot be fast, well-designed, and searchable. Salmon says “This wasn’t The Daily’s fault” but he’s 180 degrees wrong. All of these problems were entirely The Daily’s fault. All impossible tasks have not been accomplished; but not all tasks that have not yet been accomplished are impossible. When it comes to media, what strikes many as The Daily’s cardinal sin is eschewing the open Web for the closed garden of a subscriber-only iOS app. The idea being that you can’t win without a web-first strategy. But that’s what “everyone” said about social networks too — until Instagram came along and became a sensation with an iPh ...
