News From revolutions to news items In recent weeks we have seen the winds of revolt blow across part of the world and the commitment of the people and the youth in their quest for democracy. This news has also been heavily marked by attacks on journalists. These journalists were only doing their job by being there to witness History unfolding and reporting back so that we can find out what is going on in the world. The next edition of the Bayeux-Calvados Awards is an opportunity to reflect on those revolts, difficulties experienced by journalists in the field and how the internet has affected the news, from citizen journalism to the appearance of Wikileaks. A new web journalism prize With the rise of digital technology, technological developments and changes in the way in which news is broadcast, new forms of narration have been created. There has been a vast increase in the number of multimedia projects in recent years, with the introduction of web documentaries, short multimedia works, video-graphics, etc. These new formats provide opportunities for finding out about international news in other ways (new information methods, new audiences). The new Web Journalism Award will reward these new types of multimedia reporting.

CHARLES NUZIALE To the Editor: “Holy cow” and “Oh my” are famous expressions to describe an astonishing event. Well I just heard that it is “alleged” that Soupy Sales (remember him) was once seen sitting on a bench in Bayonne County Park! Should the BBOED start the “re-naming” process?Am I serious? No! Is this utterly ridiculous? Yes! Is this scenario related to a recent article that appeared in the newspaper? Probably.All the accomplishments of Tara Lapinski and Dick Savitt will forever be praiseworthy. Mr. Korpi and Mr. Broderick moved in a different spotlight. Still, all four were distinguished by an unquestioned commitment.For Broderick Courts, it was never about Ws and Ls but rather to impart the love of a sport to the young and not so young.Korpi was director of community education for Bayonne, which enriched the lives of adults.By the way, Mr. William Lawson was president of the BBOED, who dealt with major issues too, but he was always kind, patient, and willing to listen. This was most appreciated by one and all.Finally, finger-pointing and name calling only lead to negativity. It’s actually simple: children want to learn, parents want security, teachers want fairness, and citizens want transparency. As with the title of that oldie-but-goody, it is time to come together.
