Nov 8 – 14, 2008
Hard to believe we’re entering the final month of the semester. Here are some of the latest results of our reporters’ continuing hard work:
- Joshua Cinelli wrote an article for City Hall about local efforts to boost the economy by luring more foreign investment.
- We all know quitting smoking saves lives and money – Francesca Levy offers a state-by-state look at the dollars kept by kicking the habit in this article-and-slideshow package for Forbes.
- Heather Chin reaped the benefits of hopping on a breaking story with her video piece about the New York Times hoax edition distributed last week. Her video accompanies an article put together in short order by the News Service class.
- Joe Filippazzo’s News Service story about Bobby Fischer’s FBI file was picked up by El Nuevo Herald, and got many blog links.
- Karina Ioffee profiled a popular sari tailor for the Queens Courier. (Note: as of this writing, the link seems to be broken. I’ll check into it.)
- Sergey Kadinsky wrote about incumbent Assemblymember Marge Markey’s reelection for the Queens Tribune (I have a copy in my office – feel free to come by for a look.)
- If you missed our latest podcasts during the week, check them out here: Health Pods, produced by Loren Bonner, Shuka Kalantari, and Djenny Passe-Rodriguez; and This Place Called Home, produced by Linnea Covington, Celina Fang, and Tyler Mitter.
- Collin (Hoops) Orcutt predicts great things for the Lakers in his latest Men’s Fitness blog post.
- Busy Barry Paddock shared a byline on this Daily News story about a drunk driving tragedy.
