A Major Investment
The Scripps Howard Foundation pumps money into Hampton
University's journalism program.

Scripps Howard Foundation, Hampton University and the National Association of Black Journalists join forces, thanks in large part to foundation dollars, to upgrade the Virginia university's journalism program. Scripps Howard invested about $6.3 million to endow a professorship, purchase equipment, establish scholarships and the like, and construct a new building, the Scripps Howard Center. The curriculum at the historically black college has been revised to focus on hands-on skills, says Charlotte Grimes , the new chair of the mass media arts department and Scripps Howard Professor of Journalism. NABJ's five-year $300,000 grant from the foundation will go toward training programs, to be held at Hampton, for journalism students, soon-to-be interns and working minority journalists. Grimes, 51, who worked at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for 20 years, recently served as founding director of the Scripps Howard Foundation's Semester in Washington Program, which brings college journalism students to Scripps' D.C. bureau. "I like to create things, especially things in journalism education," she says. "To be able to do something about diversity, really help change our profession with the talents of these young minority journalists, that's a wonderful opportunity. That's something you can't turn down." ###
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.
