iReport boot camp is back!

As some of you learned at Thursday's roundtable, iReport boot camp is back for round two!


Similar to last year, the iReport community will take part in weekly challenges and learn reporting techniques like interviewing and photography from journalists across CNN, but this year there is a special surprise, which will remain a secret until next week.


If you are interested in improving your storytelling skills by learning from some of the best in the business, tune in next Monday, August 8, to find out how you can take part in this year’s iReport boot camp.


Until then, you can check out last year’s boot camp here.

Sounds interesting certainly. I am still having problems posted edited iReports using Windows Movie Maker (so will probably stick to using raw video as my iReports for the time being) and hope that doesn't create too many problems

I have always been told that the United States government was founded by the people and for the people. No taxation without representation. Have we forgotten already that one of the biggest reasons for the United States to separate from England was the tax issue. We were taxed without being represented. This is how I feel right now. The people elected to represent us either represent their own interest and/or the interest of the wealthy. Let’s face it there is no more middle class in America; there is only rich and poor. The poor can not give anymore than we had given and the rich keep taking everything they can away from us. I fought for this country in the military but, at this moment I do not feel very proud that our senators and congressman are behaving like little kids in the play ground and been absolute “my way or the highway”.


      Senators and congressman are elected to represent us, not just to make their own fame and fortune. Simply the situation we are on today is a shame to all of us not to mention disrespect to all hard working Americans like you and me that have financial trouble and debt but we still have not thrown the towel and declare bankruptcy. I believe we should take care of our obligations. You people have been given a vote of confidence by the constituents you represent to do right by us, but lately that doesn’t seem important. Fame and glory  will follow when you do what is right.


The government wants to save money, here are some suggestions. Stop the government waste fraud and abuse. I was in the military and seen how we waste money when we were in Iraq. The ideology of the military (forced by our own government) states that at the end of the fiscal year you either used all the money in your budget, even if you don’t need it, or you will loose it next year. If we take the money back and efficiently revise everyone’s budgets and reassigned where is really need it will reduce waste. Since the government sign their paperless act it has use more paper than ever before. Invest in technology that can be use for the task at hand and not in the ones that promise bell and whistles. Give tax breaks to the companies that bring jobs back to American and tax to 50% does who don’t. Eliminate tax breaks for oil companies, there are not in need of them anymore. Invest in small business people they will be our future. Reform welfare programs so people are forced to learn, educate, take care of their health and more important become contributing members to society. I was in welfare once and I can tell you the program is not designed to help people to get back on their feet but to make then stay in the hole and dependant on it. It cost me around $5,000.00 to get out of welfare and I promised my wife never again.


Members of the Senate and House of Representatives I urge you to do what is right. Every minute you delay your decision is causing uncertainty on the market place which in turn does not turn into a favorable situation for us. Fix this and fix it right.
