Hi everyone and welcome.

Let me start out by inviting any new people to feel free to jump in with your questions or comments. We're pretty informal.

You will have to create an iReport account to comment.

Chris Morrow has done a phenomenal job recently in Vancouver and should be commended and rewarded for her professional work.  Are there annual awards that are given away to iReporters and if so I would like to nominate Chris Morrow for one of these?

Hey iReport land!

Here's something I would like to address today. 

 

I have uploaded many pictures to the Travel section in the last year and a half and many of my submissions have been vetted and used in the weekly travel collages.  However, there's never a link to my original post and the collages only sometimes include my full name, many times only my last name is shown and other times neither my first nor my last name are shown at all in the collages.  Also, the travel collages do not include my user name (JoyfulGypsy), so anyone that sees "Lulis Leal" doesn't know that Lulis Leal is "JoyfulGypsy" and doesn't have a way of linking to my original post or profile.  Because of this, despite the fact that I have 213 vetted iReports, only 372,000 page view counts are reflected in my profile, which is a very inaccurate count, considering people look at my pictures in collages.  Is there a way photos in the weekly travel collages can be linked to the original posts so that when people click on the collage pictures they go to the original post and see the entire report with text and multiple pictures?  Since you're keeping track of page views, it would be nice to have an "accurate" count.   Also, would you include the person's user name, along with their real name, so people will know where to find more of our work? 

 

Here's a typical gallery example:  http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/03/17/gallery.st.patricks.festivities/index.html  Pictures 5, 6 and 7 are mine.  In picture #5 my full name is used.  In picture #6, only my last name is used.  In picture #7 my first name, my last name and even my location are not shown.  This is not a complaint, just an observation I would like to address.

So gang - a few new CNN iReport assignments to tell you about.

 

First, CNN's newest show John King, USA launches Monday - with an online sneak peek tomorrow at Noon. They're going to invite iReporters to take part in a weekly discussion. They call it, Make Your Case, America.

 

This week's topic is health reform. The question they want you to ask is whether President Obama is doing enough or too much to push health care legislation through Congress. You can add your voice to conversation here:

 

http://www.ireport.com/ir-topic-stories.jspa?topicId=420613

 

John King's producers are eager to use your iReports on air.

Hi all:  Protocol question?  Yesterday, while having a group sign releases for pictures and setting them up for a group shot, I was PUSHED out of the way by one of our local TV channels. The cameramen are always great to me and even offer tips on shots, etc., but the reporters love to push.  Here's the question, can we have some type of badge to wear, so they know we are Reporters as well.  My camera is so small, that I think they think I'm just a tourist taking pictures.

Click to view nsaidi's profile

@MarieSager -- We don't have any official badges for iReporters. My advice to you in that situation is, regardless of whether you're wearing a badge or not, you have to use your judgment and try to get the best camera position that you can. Being safe, of course. I know that when I've gone out on shoots independently, it can be difficult to grapple with someone who has a larger camera, but you can usually find a spot between people or use a zoom lens to zero in.

OK gang, one more assignment to plug - and this one is BIG!

 

It's our Weekend Assignment and we need your help.

 

This Saturday we're inviting you to join CNN on a special project called "A Walk in Our Shoes."

 

The idea is to film a 60-second video of a favorite place to walk. It can anywhere and any time during the day.

 

We're really trying to get as many people from as many places in the world to join in. Then we're going to take the videos and try to make a walk around the globe!

 

So - please join in on the fun (I'm going to find an awesome hiking trail) - and also tell your friends from all over the world.

The way we'd suggest you refer to yourself is as a "CNN iReporter." I think that keeps it simple. And yes, it's very good that you ask for permission for people's stories and images to potentially be published on CNN. I guess the key is to distinguish yourself as an iReporter who posts content at CNN iReport.

I think CNN is falling under the mantra of appeasing to Right a bit too much even when they are simply wrong by given them a platform as if their point of view of bad information deserve a platform. I think some of the older anchors have bought into the country being Center Right and if you look at the guests they lean a slight bit Right. That is Fox's territory. Unless CNN comes across as really being objective and authoritative not giving credence to the absurd (death panels), or using party nomenclature (Cornhusker kickback), cable folks will go MSNBC/CSPAN(123) for left leaners and Fox for Right Leaners. Just my humble opinion.

the success of ireport is the fact that both sides are represented. Not having the topic window like before sucks. It's real hard to find reports you may actually want to comment on.

 

CNN the tv network, is going down the tubes basically because they pick a choose what to report on. A news network shouldn't appease a political machine, but the people.

Here some questions I've asked but never got an answer to. Maybe CNN can.

If health care is so dire in America, why isn't there a national charity to help? We have the human society to care for animals in need. We have charities for most major ailments.

 

If Health care is so dire in America, why are we sending doctors without borders, instead of receiving them?

 

If health care in America is so dire, why isn't there a charity concert? Bruce Springsteen and John Cougar Melloncamp have sounded off about health care, both involved in Farm aid and Live AID. Yet, nothing?

We are the most charitable nation on earth, Yet, instead of helping our brothers, we are asking the government too.

 

If we had a national charity for health care cost assistance, performers donated time to generate donations to such a national charity. And both sides agreed to use there resources to develop and assist such a national private charity, would we need the government interfering?

 

The only reason this wouldn't work, is if the whole health care bill isn't really to help the poor get medical.

 

Now such a charity wouldn't bail out unions who have promised benefits they can not deliver.

Hi everyone,

I am new at this and I am enjoying it.

My question is on comments.

What is the proper protocol to observe when someone comments on your posting? Do you thank them or respond? what is the proper thing to do?

Thanks,

Sidney

The proper protowhat?...sindey, you are a very polite little doggy and I am sure you will be welcome with open arms by the rest of the dogs. Say whatever comes to mind...no biting, growling or grumbling profanities.

rasguy, I don't believe in charity. I think all Americans should be protected by the government against greedy corporations who are using their power to oppress the people. Labor (real work) is very undervalued in this country and the poor and homeless are forced to live on unlivable wages. IF they are lucky enough to get a job that is not taken by an illegal alien or sent overseas for slave labor.

This is why we have the poor in America...they don't want charity, they want to be treated fairly.

Are the makers of the US Census Racist, or do I have a wrong understanding of the word Negro???

 

Hi every body, I know this is off topic, but i was feeling up my copy of the us census, and was a little bit shocked to the fact that they had put down in the race section "Black, African-American,or NEGRO". See, this is my first census and I don't know if this is suppose to be normal. However, I was a little bit disturbed and offended by the use of such word. I personally do not see the reason for adding such a description when one can easily be identified as as Black or African-American.

Electronic commerce, commonly referred to as e-commerce or e-commerce, basically refers to the buying and selling of items and services over the Web. Modern e-commerce design uses the internet on the core of the solution. Web based retail is referred to as e-tail and the retailer is identified as e-tailer. In this regard it is worth noting that the Birmingham e-commerce industry has noticed a stable increase in last couple of years..
