Internet training for journalists

Yesterday I went to a seminar at the Centre for Advancing Journalism (where I am studying a Master of Journalism), New Media Entrepreneurs: tales from the trenches. One thing I learned from this experience was that I do appear to have more thorough technical skills and familiarity with internet technologies than even the more tech-friendly journalists and publishers.


Social identity and depression

Sandra Davidson investigated how a person’s social identity affected their ability to recover from depression.

WE HAVE known for a long time that being socially isolated is bad for your mental health. Some of the most cruel and enduring punishments are about social isolation – banishment, exile and solitary confinement. So we know this instinctively, and it’s been used throughout history. But I was interested in finding from a more scientific approach what aspects of the social world were important for recovery from depression.
