Your iReports, our tips: #2

iReporter Liberty1955 made an astute observation and did his homework when it came to his iReport about increasing food costs . He compared the prices of the same items over a couple weeks. His video was chock full of examples proving his point. The cost of creamer went up 20 cents. A pack of sausage links cost 40 cents more.

 

Not only did Liberty1955 report on the hard facts, but he also showed us what he was talking about. As he talked about each item, he showed it on camera. The audio matched the visual elements. Hallelujah!

 

But, there's always room for improvement. The next step would be to describe how this trend has affected you. How much more a week are you spending on groceries? Have you had to cut back on something else? We are always looking for your personal story!

 

And one more tip for Liberty1955: Get on camera to talk about the personal impact of the story. Seeing your face as you talk is more powerful than just hearing a voice coming from off the set.

 

Keep up the good work Liberty1955, and we'll see you next week with another tip.

Yes I had complained at stores about the fact that prices were continuing to increase for well more than a year after fuel prices dropped well below 2 dollars having just started to descend a month ago fuel costs being the significant price driver at pos. This was gouge #2 & continues.

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.

      We are asking everyone to say a prayer for "Darkhorse" 3rd Battalion 5th

        Marines and their families.

      

      

        They are fighting it out in Afghanistan & they have lost 9 marines in 4

        days.

        IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE the message spread if more could pass it on.

        Corps...Often Tested, Always Faithful, Brothers Forever.

      

      

        Lindsay Lohan, 24, gets her name and face all over the news because she

        went to jail. Now she's getting it all over again for failing her drug test.

      

      

        But: Nothing in the media about these guys because no one seems to care:

        Justin Allen, 23,

        Brett Linley, 29,

        Matthew Weikert, 29,

        Justus Bartett, 27,

        Dave Santos, 21,

        Chase Stanley, 21,

        Jesse Reed, 26,

        Matthew Johnson, 21,

        Zachary Fisher, 24,

        Brandon King, 23,

        Christopher Goeke, 23,

        Sheldon Tate, 27,

      

      

        All are Marines that gave their lives for YOU this week. Honor THEM by

        forwarding this. I just did.
