Shoptalk: Future of Newspapers is Still in Print

I’ve got news for the newspaper industry.

Your future is in print and not in the killing fields of digital media where the Duopoly is choking off the blood supply.

I learned this the hard way, giving birth to and then resuscitating during the crash of 2001-2002. I promulgated the “digital first” mantra, a fatuous promise if there ever was one, as if an eponymous change could cure our ills.

Almost 25 years into this “experiment,” I get feint nausea as publishers and editors take precious resources out of their newsrooms, even though most newspapers still get two-thirds of their revenue from print. Consider the recent missive from the Wall Street Journal that senior editors must re-apply for new jobs in its latest reorg.

“Reorg”—now that’s a word which has crept into our lexicon without much

The boyfriend didn’t do it

DNA test says Singer slayer was Hispanic

By Diana McFarland

Managing editor

The man who killed Carrie Singer was not her boyfriend but an unknown Hispanic man.

That’s the conclusion presented last week by the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office concerning the unsolved 2004 murder of Singer, 28, whose body was dumped in a farm field off Blount’s Corner Road.

The revelation was part of the Discovery Channel’s series, “The Killing Fields,” which will feature the Singer’s unsolved murder this season.

Isle of Wight County Sheriff Mark Marshall said his investigators had tools available to them now that did not exist 13 years ago — namely DNA phenotyping that can pinpoint a person’s ancestry, coloring and some semblance of facial features based on DNA evidence.

That same technology was also able to eliminate Singer’s boyfriend, Robert Dezern, as a suspect. Dezern died in 2013.

Now more than ever, Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) sees increasing urgency to foster respectful and thoughtful conversations about the social, economic and political challenges we face around the globe.

Halifax ceremony sends one-tonne ‘Canada Gate’ off to Passchendaele

HALIFAX — One hundred years ago this week, tens of thousands of young soldiers from across Canada were preparing for a battle in western Belgium that would prove to be the bloodiest in Canadian military history.

By the time the fight for the ridge near Passchendaele was over on Nov. 10, 1917, the carnage endured by the Canadian Corps. had reached a level that would leave a deep scar on this country’s collective psyche. Among the 15,000 casualties were 4,000 dead — most of them later buried in Flanders.

“Canadian soldiers fought like hell for this country and for each other,” Ken Hynes, curator of The Army Museum in Halifax, said Monday during an unusual ceremony inside a business park warehouse. “The last 700 metres, from Crest farm to the final capture of Passchendaele, took them 10 long, terrifying days.”

Hynes was among 30 people who gathered for a ceremonial send-off for a

Great Barr gardeners in centenary tribute to their adopted ‘lost soldier’ – with VIDEO and PICTURES

The centenary of the soldier’s death was commemorated with full honours at Thornbridge Allotments in Great Barr where his service medal was dug up several years ago. Growers at the site were intrigued by the discovery and set to work to find out who owned it.

After identifying Private Richards through his army number, they learned his military honours had been distributed among family members, including his brother-in-law Emrys Davies who later moved from the Rhondda Valley in south Wales to Great Barr and had an allotment plot at the site.

Uncovering the story of Private Richards, of the 7th Battalion King’s Shropshire Light Infantry, was taken on as a research project by the allotment committee and over the years they have even traced relatives of the miner’s son who could never have realised he would be commemorated in this way.

After joining up in August 1914, at the outbreak
