Doing It Right

HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTIONSfrom professionals who have studied violence by children and journalists who have overseen coverage of such events:

Don't censor details from the public. Provide as much ``what'' information as possible.

  • Don't focus too heavily on the suspect. Don't lose sight of the victims. Show the impact on the entire community.

  • Don't jump to hasty, facile conclusions about what prompted the tragedy. The answer is often complicated and sometimes unknowable. Explore many possible explanations.

  • Don't spend too much time reliving the episode.

  • Put the incident in context. Answer questions such as ``how rampant is such behavior?'' Run stories on efforts to avert violence by children. And don't ignore positive stories about young people.

  • 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.
