Bi-Weekly Interview: Michaela Kron, WSN University Editor

Comm Club has decided to begin a bi-weekly interview column featuring influential and interesting people that are connected to Media, Culture, and Communications. For our first interview, we sat down with Michaela Kron on September 10, 2009. Michaela is a sophomore MCC major and the University Editor at the Washington Square News.



How did you get involved with the paper?

Michaela Kron: I was the editor of my high school newspaper at North Springs High School in Atlanta, Georgia. Also, the summer after my senior year I interned with the publisher of three local newspapers in Atlanta: The Sandy Springs Reporter, The Buckhead Reporter and Brookhaven. It was a natural progression for me to work for WSN.


What did you cover?

MK: The summer after my senior year they gave me lighter stuff, more feature-y fun stories. This past summer I covered more in-depth, serious stuff.


How are those newspapers doing this year?

MK: Really well, actually. Local newspapers are thriving because people want more local news.


So you already have an amazing portfolio to show your work; that’s wonderful. How did you first get involved with journalism what made you want to write?

MK: I’ve always liked writing. It’s interesting because English wasn’t my first language, Russian was my first. My family is from there and they decided to teach me Russian when I was young. I started learning English in Kindergarten and got better by second grade. I was determined to be good at it so naturally it happened for me. I was never a good math or science person, anyway.


Why didn’t you apply to NYU’s Journalism school?

MK: I didn’t necessarily want to go into journalism; I wanted to look into the broader scope of communications. When I saw the program Media, Culture, and Communications those three words were so interesting and all those things are something I am so interested in. NYU was my first choice and I applied early decision.


When you started covering for WSN what did you first write about?

MK: I was a contributing writer. My first couple of stories were for the city/state section then I gravitated more towards university issues. My first story never actually ran. I worked on it with a partner. At the time, there was a study done saying that there was a higher probability of earthquakes occurring in Manhattan. We spoke to some professors and students, but it never ran. Then I wrote about a program at Columbia requiring students to do community service, and that one did run.


What were you doing during the “Take Back NYU” event last year?

MK: Our desk editor had emailed everyone. The second day I was out there at 6am. It was very cold and my legs were very numb. They never came out to the balcony like we had hoped but we waited there for a very long time.


What do you have planned as an editor this year?

MK: We have a bunch of new freshman writers and writers in general. I’m really focused on working on WSN conventions with them in terms of writing and making sure they understand what it takes. I’m mostly just focused on finding a lot of good stories and searching in places where you wouldn’t think to look.


What are your plans after NYU?

MK: It’s kind of tough because I am considering a bunch of different paths now. I might consider media law and going to law school after this.


What advice do you have for Media, Culture and Communications students?

MK: Get involved in WSN or outside internships. There are so many opportunities. Put yourself out there. Journalism isn’t very easy and it definitely takes some work and dedication. Always be willing to learn!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

When it comes to playing video games, you can literally be any character you want. There are many things that you can do, but you must master the right skills to succeed. These ideas can help you.

Take a few breaks when you start playing a game that you're not able to step away from easily. Video Games are addicting and can damage your overall health. Playing a game should remain fun and light-hearted. Think you're addicted? Seek help.

Create a safe online gaming environment for your kids. Keep track of the people they're playing with. Certain unsavory individuals have been known to reach children via online online games. It is up to you to protect your children and limit their playmates to those you both understand.

If you have a kid and they get too aggressive when they play too many computer games, you may need to put them into some sort of a time out. Give him a 10-minute warming, and then call an end to the game. Suggested activities include exercise or playing outside. This will focus his mind on something less stressful.

When you save your game, do more than just saving it on the same slot. Every now and then, save it in another one. You may find in the future that you would like to resume your game from a different point. However, you will be unable to do so if your games have all been saved in a single place.

Ask for suggestions from the game store employees about games you will like. A lot of people like different kinds of video gaming, you should look to branch out. You will find that the clerks can offer a variety of recommendations that you can enjoy for many happy gaming hours.

Today, there are a lot of online games where you may be asked to purchase something with real life currency if you want to get more out of it. Make sure to evaluate these purchases quite carefully. They may not do much to improve your game-playing experience on one hand. While that is true, they may save some time.

To save money, consider purchasing used games. The cost of new video games are $60 or higher depending on the title. This price is bad enough as it is, but it can a real downer when the game is delivered and you find that you absolutely hate it. By purchasing a used game, you could save 25-50% on the game you want.

If your child gets a game as a gift or if you are buying a gift, make sure to verify its ESRB rating. These ratings are designed to help you assess whether the game is appropriate for the players it is being bought for. This should be a definite consideration before making the purchase.

It can be tempting to go all out buying expansion packs, add-ons and upgrades for your new game. This can get very pricey! Instead, be disciplined with your spending. Check out what you've got in the game you bought and only add on what you can afford.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

You will find playing computer games to be quite fascinating and enjoyable. These games can increase your speed, increase your brainpower, or simply help you escape stress for a while. Take you game higher with the great advice in the article above.
