Rise of the Technology Class

This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Veena – News on TV

I am going to be starting college in the fall, and I plan on majoring in journalism, most likely broadcast journalism. Because of this, I’ve been starting to watch news shows on TV more and more, to get a feel for the kind of reporting they do. In a normal news broadcast, they cover a ton of wide-ranging stories, but because of the limited amount of time, they barely delve into the issues, they mainly just give headlines and a few words of information before moving on to the next topic. A major news story may be allowed 5 minutes of air time, but not much more. If you just want the basic idea of what’s going on in the world, this kind of reporting would suffice, but it is not detailed enough to give anyone a good grasp on the issues.

Does anyone on here stay up to date with current events? If so, what forms of media do you usually get the information from?

That´s true, not much time is devoted to news.
They should devote more time and talk more about some important and interesting news .
