It covers news gathering and packaging; writing and interviewing; recording sound and shooting videos; constructing radio, television and online stories; compiling news programs; legal and ethical issues and how to find work.
Reporter genes have played, and continue to play, a vital role in many areas of biological research by providing a ready means for qualitative and quantitative assessment of the activity of genes and location of gene products in different environments. In Reporter Genes: A Practical Guide, renowned researchers describe practical protocols for experimentation with the most useful reporter genes for mammalian systems that are available, concentrating on those marker genes that are currently most commonly used. Among the topics covered in this volume are methodologies for staining and visualization of ß-galactosidase in embryos and tissues, immunohistochemical detection of ß-galactosidase, detection of reporter gene expression in murine airways, and three dimensional analysis of molecular signals with episcopic imaging techniques. Also covered in this groundbreaking text are fluorescent proteins, detection of GFP during nervous system development, fluorescent protein reporter systems for single cell measurements, and non-invasive imaging of molecular events. Comprehensive and illuminating, Reporter Genes: A Practical Guide will be an oft-used reference for geneticists, molecular engineers, and molecular biologists.

A Study Guide Created to Accompany the Film Reporter

Facing History and Ourselves has developed Teaching Reporter to help classrooms explore essential questions about being a global citizen in the information age. The documentary Reporter follows New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on a reporting trip to central Africa. Watching Kristof identify stories that he thinks will galvanize readers to take action to prevent further humanitarian disasters in places such as Congo and Darfur, gives us an opportunity to think about not only the role of the journalist, but also our own roles as members of a global society. To whom do we show compassion? Under what circumstances? How can information be used to encourage action on behalf of others? Teaching Reporter includes materials that help students make connections between the dramatic events presented in the film and the choices they make in their own lives as creators and consumers of media. By addressing issues ranging from journalistic objectivity to psychic numbing, the resources in this study guide help develop students' civic and media literacy skills.
"The book is designed as an introductory text for journalism courses but would also be useful for related classes such as magazine and feature writing, principles of journalism, and news editing."--Jacket.
