first_imgThe Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism collaborated with two private health foundations to create a fund supporting journalists reporting on subjects related to children’s health.Annenberg, the California Endowment and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health created the fund, which offers a $2,000 to $5,000 grant to professional print, online or broadcast journalists.The projects designed by applicants should shed light on critical health or policy issues that affect children’s health in California, said Michelle Levander, program director of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship.“For example, how kids make their way through the health care system, and [how] kids before wouldn’t have lived as long as they’re living now with the [same] level of severity of an ailment are rich areas for reporting,” Levander said.Levander said stories about children’s health have changed greatly as health care has changed, specifically the increased impact of chronic diseases on the lives of children.“What you see now is that the children who are severely ill have chronic diseases, but not necessarily fatal diseases,” Levander said. “They are very costly for the health care system and they are complex to manage.”Levander said one example is a decrease in schools providing full-time nurses for students.“One example is that every school used to have its own nurse, [and] that’s one arena that has been cut back greatly,” she said. “You also have kids who might have something like Type 1 diabetes where they need insulin, and so now who is going to administer the insulin? [This debate] made it really tough for the parents and the kids.”The California Endowment Journalism Fellowship has other programs that offer reporting stipends as well. This, however, is the newest award and is distinct for its focus on children’s health Levander said.“This is all offered under the offices of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship and we are a professional education program at the Annenberg school, and we’re geared toward professional reporters and editors and we offer short training programs with mentoring over many months on story projects all focused around health,” Levander said.Levander said if students are accepted, they will participate in a fellowship program.“It’s a new fund that will fund reporting projects around children’s health issues,” Levander said. “[Professional journalists] will be competing to secure both a place in a weeklong national fellowship program and, based on the strength of their reporting proposal, to receive a reporting stipend for the project that they would embark upon.”last_img read more

Missed opportunities will haunt the Orange, as forwards Chris Nanco and Ben Polk both advanced the ball into dangerous areas before whiffing on their respective shots late in the match.Syracuse was tagged with its first loss since Oct. 30 against Boston College, but this one ended its season.Additional content: Syracuse’s improbable season shattered by Clemson in Final 4, penalty-kick lossSt. John’s ousts Syracuse in upset win after SU beats Colgate earlier in weekSyracuse flashed it’s 3-point prowess against Colgate on Tuesday, sinking 14-of-30 shots from behind the arc in a 78-51 win. The Orange was beat up on the boards a bit by the Raiders — who equaled SU’s 32 rebounds — but was lifted primarily by Malachi Richardson and Michael Gbinije’s 17 points. It was the first win for Mike Hopkins as Syracuse’s interim head coach.Richardson followed up his revival game against Colgate with a dud against St. John’s, shooting 0-for-11 from 3 in the 84-72 loss on Sunday afternoon in Madison Square Garden. It was a trend for Syracuse in the contest, who simply missed too many shots to keep up with Red Storm. Part of the blame also falls on the defensive side of the ball, where the Orange yielded 12 3-pointers and 32 points combined between Amar Alibegovic and Federico Mussini.Additional content: What we learned from Syracuse’s win over Colgate and what we learned from Syracuse’s loss to St. John’sQuick hitsFormer Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt is appealing the NCAA’s denial of a sixth season of eligibility, because he thinks its unfair.Syracuse women’s basketball put up it’s worst offensive performance of the season in its Saturday afternoon loss to No. 24 Arizona St.Philo Germano’s last-gasp effort pushed Syracuse Cross Country to lay claim to its first national championship.last_img read more

first_img Richard FitzGerald steps down as RMG CEO August 6, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Share Related Articles SIS expands into the numbers game with 49’s takeover  June 29, 2020 Submit SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 The Bookmakers Technology Consortium (BTC) has confirmed that its audio channel, which will incorporate content from both the SIS FACTS and TRP channels, is scheduled to go live by January 1.The audio channel, which has signed up over 450 shops in less than a week, will be managed from the BTC studio in Ashington, Northumberland and delivered by SIS via the FACTS satellite decoder.The service is available to any bookmaker who subscribes to both these channels. The new BTC Audio channel will provide independent betting shops with a centrally managed switching service for commentaries on both the FACTS and TRP channels.Initially this will be a simple switching service to enable the commentaries from TRP to be inserted into the SIS FACTS audio. However, it is intended that over a period of six months the service will develop to provide additional content such as promotional offers, prices and tips.As a not for profit co-operative, BTC are pricing this service on a cost recovery basis to ensure it is affordable for all shops.Howard Chisholm, BTC Director, commented: “We think that £20 per month for this service represents very good value for money. We aim to provide a service that will add value to the separate TV channels that independents now require to provide full coverage of UK horseracing.”BTC will be working with Manny Bernstein to ensure that there are no content clashes in the audio channel. Richard Peett, a subscriber to the Manny Bernstein EP service, has confirmed that Joe Jennings has signed up to the service for their shops in the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.He said: “This is a service which I have thought to be long overdue for the independent bookmaker. We are confident that BTC will produce a service that works well with our Openbet systems and Manny Bernstein prices.”Euan McCormick (Managing Director) made the following comments about why the recently re-branded Megabet UK (previously Stan James) has signed up to the service: “We have been looking for a centrally managed audio service and this fits the bill perfectly. It will add significantly to the proposition when we roll out our re-branding nationally in the new year.”last_img read more
