Ethics in journalism work is always a stormy debate. So it's no wonder that the same thing happened today at the end of our Journalism seminar.

'Forward, not back'

'Forward, not back'

Even before applying to WPI, there was a plan. If I was approved, I would stay almost one month more to cover the United States elections. It would be two dreams at a time, since I’ve always aspired to both participate in a fellowship and to cover the American elections.

Newspapers of the USA. #2: The flashy gals

Newspapers of the USA. #2: The flashy gals

This is my second post about the visual appearance of U.S. newspapers, actually a continuation to my previous post which was mainly about New York Times. To read the whole story, start from "Newspapers of the USA. " also available on this very blog.

I took a task of observing how four different U.S. newspapers look at the same date (3rd of October), and what we can learn from that.

Seeing your own country as a foreigner

Seeing your own country as a foreigner

One of the goals of the WPI Fellowship is to make America understandable for the ten foreign journalists who each year travel throughout the country to get in touch with the different aspects of its society, its politics, its media, its people, its partisan divisions.

On Oasis for Democrats

Published at The Australian online, September 6

BOOKER welcomes me to the Oasis and wanders barefoot through the space. She points out the restaurant, the lounge, the meditation centre and the yoga studio. We stop for a while at the "lyfe kitchen" and check out the steel-cut oatmeal and wholegrain pilaf. This menu hasn't been designed by anything as clumsy as a chef. A team of experts has worked on it to produce the tasty low-calorie food, with its gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Democratic National Convention and Brazil

Democratic National Convention and Brazil

It was a tiring three-day journey, but it was worthy. As I have been working with international issues for ten years, I've always wanted to cover the United States elections, and I am now in USA doing exactly that.

Dance for eternity

Dance for eternity

As we, me alongside my host parents Tom and Lou, approach the Sioux Trail at Prior Lake, I'm getting more and more excited. This tiny hill is the location of the 2012 Wacipi, also called as 'Pow wow', the annual meeting of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community near Minneapolis. Year by year, hundreds of native americans, from all over the country draw near this area to meet the local indian tribe community and to celebrate their culture and traditions.
