Members of the National Association of Black Journalists elect Condace Pressley as the organization's fourth woman president. Pressley, assistant program director for Atlanta's WSB-AM, a news/talk station, takes office at a tough time for NABJ, which is struggling to recover from an $800,000 deficit in its $2.5 million budget last year. About half of the losses were in NABJ's stock portfolio, Pressley says. At its August convention in Orlando, the 26-year-old organization created a finance committee, which the board of directors made permanent, a move Pressley calls "a good first step." She's also concerned about declining numbers of African Americans in the nation's newsrooms (see "Losing Ground," June). "In many cases we've figured out how to hire a diverse workforce," says Pressley. "News managers need to be better skilled and trained at managing a diverse workforce." A graduate of the University of Georgia, Pressley, who turns 37 this month, started at WSB as a city hall reporter and anchor in 1986 and was named to her current position, which includes managing daily operations, in 1999.###

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet
it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags
early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags
logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
