Idioms, Cliches, and Slang

What is the sports lingo in basketball?

This is a fascinating question, because slang is always changing, and the "lingo" of any sport will also adapt, as rules change and playing styles change. Today, one of the most common expressions is "slam dunk"-- where the player jumps high and slams the ball into the basket. Fifty years ago, this play was not seen, so there was no expression for it.

Basketball announcers use various slang expressions, and here are a few of them. To "drain a three" is to successful shoot a basket from a long distance, which means you get three points rather than the two points you get for making a shorter shot. You may hear "player X took player Y to school" or "player X really schooled player Y"-- this means that one player showed himself to be superior on a particular play and made the other player look inept or foolish. "All net!" or "Swish!" means the player made a shot that went right through the net, not touching the rim or bouncing off the backboard. You may find it helpful to watch a game on TV but turn down the sound and listen to the play-by-play on the radio (the radio announcers will do more describing). That way, you can learn what the slang expressions mean and see how they apply to what the players just did.

What is slander in journalism?

Slander is a surprisingly specific term. Most people assume that it is when someone lies in any form of media.

Slander is specific to something being fleeting, or once it is said then it can't be taken back. Plus it does not have anything to do with printed material. Slander must be something that is false and damages reputation of the individual.

Most of the time, in order to prove a slander case, the victim must prove falsity, identification, broadcast (or at least one person heard it, even if you aren't talking to them), and monetary harm.

Basically, slander = false harmful speech. Libel = written false harmful words.

How do you earn respect from your husband?

Respecting each other in a marriage is one of the moste beautiful things in a relationchip. Unfortunately many households of married people do not have the required respect and this is why they go down sooner or later.

But earning the respect of your husband or wife isn't that difficult.

To answer your question:

Firstly, you should show your husband the kind of respect which you are expecting from him.

Because nobody wants to be disrespected!

Secondly, just be yourself! That means follow your goals, for instance. When you respect yourself, he will in reverse respect you too.

And finally, be independent! Nobody wants to have a adultchild at home who only wants to be cared of. Show him that you are strong. He will respect your strength.


What courses should you take if you want to study journalism?

Many colleges offer a degree in journalism. If you plan to major in journalism but are still in high school, you might consider taking classes in English and writing. Here is more input: * I have looked into that major too. If you want to be a news anchor or something like that, you want broadcast journalism. If you just want to be a reporter then a regular journalism degree is what you want. That would include a lot of English classes, some journalism classes, and probably some public speaking or communication classes. Many newspaper editors indicate that they prefer to hire reporters with English majors rather than journalism majors, as English majors often have stronger writing skills. Warning: Attending journalism classes does NOT make you a better journalist. The benefits of taking these programs is dubious at best. It is recommended that you simply start writing for any possible publication, such as a student newspaper, local community newsletter, or start your own blog.

Another viewpoint: I studied journalism at Langara College in Vancouver 20 years ago, and found that it did, in fact, improve my journalistic skills tremendously (I still have an active career in writing, although I now write fiction and poetry as opposed to news). In addition to the core courses, we also studied history, economics, English and political science. I would strongly recommend you include as many of these "peripheral" subjects as possible in your studies. Being a journalist carries with it a responsibility to your readers: the broader your base of education, the more well-positioned you are to report the news accurately and knowledgeably.



Mass communication courses are there for journalism. Mass communication courses are degree as well as diploma.

Pulitzer Prize Winners

What news story won the Pulitzer Prize but was completely made up?

Janet Cooke (born July 23,1954) was an American journalist who became infamous when she won a Pulitzer Prize for a fabricated story that she wrote for The Washington Post.

In 1980, Cooke joined the "Weeklies" section staff of the Washington Post under editor Vivian Aplin-Brownlee. To secure this post, she said she had a degree from Vassar College, studied at the Sorbonne University, and was the recipient of an award at the Toledo Blade newspaper.

In an article entitled Jimmy's World, which appeared in the Post on September 29, 1980, Cooke wrote a gripping profile of the life of an 8-year-old heroin addict. She described the "needle marks freckling the baby-smooth skin of his thin, brown arms." The story engendered much sympathy among readers, including Marion Barry, then mayor of Washington, D.C. He and other city officials organized an all-out police search for the boy, which was unsuccessful and led to claims that the story was fraudulent. Barry claimed that Jimmy was known to the city and receiving treatment.

Despite growing signs of problems, the Post defended the veracity of the story and Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward nominated the story for the Pulitzer Prize. Cooke was named winner of the prize on April 13, 1981.

When the editors of the Toledo Blade, where Cooke had previously worked, read her biographical notes, they noticed a number of discrepancies. Further investigation revealed that Cooke's credentials were false. Pressured by the editors of The Washington Post, Cooke confessed her guilt.

Two days after the prize had been awarded, Washington Post publisher Donald Graham held a press conference and admitted that the story was fraudulent. The editorial in the next day's paper offered a public apology. Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward said at the time: "I believed it, we published it. Official questions had been raised, but we stood by the story and her. Internal questions had been raised, but none about her other work. The reports were about the story not sounding right, being based on anonymous sources, and primarily about purported lies [about] her personal life -- [told by three reporters], two she had dated and one who felt in close competition with her. I think that the decision to nominate the story for a Pulitzer is of minimal consequence. I also think that it won is of little consequence. It is a brilliant story -- fake and fraud that it is. It would be absurd for me or any other editor to review the authenticity or accuracy of stories that are nominated for prizes."

Cooke resigned and returned the prize. She appeared on the Phil Donahue show in January 1982, and said that the high-pressure environment of the Washington Post had corrupted her judgment. She said that her sources had hinted to her about the existence of a boy such as Jimmy, but unable to find him, she eventually created a story about him in order to satisfy her editors.

Cooke was the subject of an interview by Mike Sager, appearing in GQ in June 1996. Sager's article was republished in an anthology Scary Monsters and Super Freaks. The movie rights to her story were reportedly purchased for $1.6 million by Columbia TriStar Pictures, to be divided between Cooke (55 percent), Sager and their agents. The film has not yet been produced.

What country in the world has most lawyers per capita?

Apparently, the statistics are not entirely forthcoming on the internet. But according to The Economist, a study of 29 countries was conducted in 2006 that showed the USA only behind Greece in terms of per capita lawyers.

More recently, the American Lawyer reported that Israel has the most lawyers per capita, and India has the most lawyers total. Of course, the US isn't too far behind on either count.

I'm not sure where the information below came from, or if it is reliable, so take it with a grain of salt. (I think someone just looked up the population and lawyer count for a these 8 countries)

U.S.A.: There is one lawyer for every 265 Americans. Brazil follows closely with one lawyer for every 326 Brazilians.

Country Lawyers Population People/Lawyer

1) US: Lawyers: 1,143,358 Pop: 303MM P/L:265

2) Brazil: Lawyers: 571,360 Pop: 186MM P/L: 326

3) New Zealand: Lawyers: 10,523 Pop: 4MM P/L 391

4) Spain Lawyers:114,143 Pop: 45MM P/L:395

5) Italy Lawyers:121,380 Pop: 59MM P/L:488

6) UK Lawyers:151,043 Pop: 61MM P/L401

7) Germany Lawyers:138,679 Pop: 82MM P/L: 593

8) France Lawyers:45,686 Pop: 64MM P/L: 1,403

Among the 8 countries listed above, the US only has about 50% of the lawyers (37 percent of the total population). India alone has over 1 million lawyers (more than the USA). Therefore, the US does not even come close to having 70% of the world's population of lawyers. Myth busted.

But, with 2.2 million people in prisons, the US has a lawyer for every two inmates. Considering the ridiculous rate at which the United States incarcerates, that is saying something.

The lawyer number for the US comes from the ABA (active) for 2007. The lawyer number for Brazil comes from Brazilian's ABA equivalent OAB (active) for 2007. The population numbers were pulled on Jan 2nd 2008 from Wikipedia.


What are the role of campus journalism in promoting digital literacy?

Promoting Digital Literacy through Campus Journalism means that journalists should promote technology to improve man's life. As a saying goes "Technology is Power." But why is technology power?

In communication, for instance, cellphones, telephones, and others can help us communicate with people from far places. In transportation, for example, airplanes, cars, and other help us go far places. In medicine, for instance, x-rays, computers, and others help us in our health. In school, for instance, LCD projectors, CD players, and others help us learn and understand what we have learned and understand what we have learned.

Indeed, technology really is power because technology makes our lives so easy. As journalists it is our vole to help the people to be equipped with necessary knowledge on technology to make their life so easy and well developed.

Colleges and Universities

Which colleges offer good journalism courses?

If you're seeking advice for colleges that offer "good" courses of study in the field of journalism, the University of Southern California's School of Journalism has produced some of most successful news, sports, arts and entertainment journalists in both broadcast and print media. The alums consistently make-up the largest percentage of the AP, Washington Bureau and run (at the executive level) more seats in our World's leading journalism entities including CBS, ABC, NBC, BBC and NHK to name a few.

If you're looking for courses to improve your writing, thinking about writing a best seller, got a great screen play in mind, or just plain interested in journalism, check out the many Extension courses offered at such fine public institutions as UCLA or the CalState system.

Columbia, Northwestern, and Univeristy of Missouri at Columbia are probably the top three journalism schools in the country.

The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at The Arizona State University consistently beats all other journalism schools in competitions. ASU has won the Society of Professional Journalist's Intercollegiate News Contest four years in a row, including this year's 2009 competition.

Why stick to North America? There's plenty of choice of journalism programs in Australia. Colleges have been ranked by graduating students in an article in the Australian newspaper, "What makes a good school of journalism."
