Summary

A great many people who want to be writers say that they want to have a career in journalism.  They may envision themselves going to exotic locales to cover stories.  While these things do happen to journalists, it takes a long time to make your bones before you are sent on any interesting assignments.  

A journalist is someone who reports on timely events.  Timing is everything to a journalist.  Whether you write for a periodical or a newspaper, you need to make sure that your articles are timely.  Your purpose is to keep the public as up to date as possible when it comes to news and events that may affect them.  This is the basic concept of being a journalist.  
You should report on all sides of a story, not just take one side, even if it appears that one side is right or wrong.  A good journalist gets all sides of the story, prints it and then lets the reader decide, based upon the article.  A good journalist does not make up the reader's mind for them.  

As you continue in your career, you will find your voice when it comes to your writing.  Do not be surprised if your first articles are rewritten by your editor.  Another rule that you need to learn when you are starting a career as a journalist is to not fall in love with your own work.  Do not feel hurt if an editor does not like a phrase in your article, or makes some changes.  They are only doing their job.  You will soon get to know the editor and they will get to know your style of writing.

    John Wesley Powell was a pioneer American explorer, ethnologist, and geologist in the 19th Century. He set out to explore the Colorado and the Grand Canyon. He gathered nine men, four boats and food for ten months and set out from Green River, Wyoming. Passing through dangerous rapids, the group passed down the Green River to its confluence with the Colorado River (then also known as the Grand River upriver from the junction), near present-day Moab, Utah.The expedition's route traveled through the Utah canyons of the Colorado River, which Powell described in his published diary as having …wonderful features—carved walls, royal arches, glens, alcove gulches, mounds and monuments. From which of these features shall we select a name? We decide to call it Glen Canyon. One man (Goodman) quit after the first month and another three (Dunn and the Howland brothers) left at Separation Rapid in the third, only two days before the group reached the mouth of the Virgin River after traversing almost 1,500 km. Powell retraced the route with another expedition, producing photographs, an accurate map, and various papers, including ethnographic reports of the area's Native Americans and a monograph on their languages.

    Discover the haunted history of this Florida Gulf Coast city with tales of battles, murders, natural disasters and the restless spirits they left behind. 
     
    Located on the coast of Florida’s panhandle, Panama City offers plenty of charm, fun and sun. But it also has a dramatic past that still lingers among its old buildings and historic landmarks. Staff at the City Center for the Arts can still hear the footsteps of inmates pacing the cells of the Old County Jail that once occupied the grounds, and a phantom known as Virginia still frequents the elevators of the historic Bay County Courthouse.  
     
    Not all spirits bring doom and gloom, however—one local family learned how to befriend the resident ghost of their new home that was fond of whistling at night. Using extensive research and interviews, author Beverly Nield details the ghastly history of haunted Panama City.

    Trip to Russia

    Stefan Zweig

    "What journey within our immediate world today would be remotely as interesting, enchanting, instructive and exciting as that to Russia? While our Europe, and especially the capitals, are subject to the inexorably contemporary process of mutual assimilation and resemblance, Russia remains utterly unparalleled." Stephen Zweig, 1928. After Stefan Zweig's bourgeois world collapsed with the First World War, he went searching for alternative forms of society, which culminated in a journey through the at that time still young Soviet Union. His perceptions and impressions during the trip remained ambivalent and moved between the generally prevailing glorification of the USSR by parts of the Western European intelligentsia and the harsh reality of life among the population. Stefan Zweig's non-political trip to the USSR is probably one of the most extraordinary travelogues of the 1920s and appears today almost 90 years later as a kaleidoscope into a past that is once again up-to-date.
