Writing for Reporter
Ever dream of having your name in print? How about getting access to star-studded concerts, FOR FREE!? What about getting paid to hang out at all the coolest events at RIT or travel the country to conventions and world news headquarters? How about constantly being high-fived everywhere you go by your adoring fans?
Okay maybe not the last one, but writing for Reporter is still a pretty sweet gig. Think about it. You get to address the whole campus, you can express yourself through the written word and most importantly, it’s a way to earn a paycheck on campus without wearing a hairnet. It looks great on a resume, you find out all the good gossip before anyone else, and you can subversively stick it to the man with your witty commentary on university policies. Plus you get to hang out with me. Which is awesome, BTW.
STREAM OF FACTS
The number one movie on this weekend in 1991 was “Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.” Grossing just shy of 13 million dollars domestically, the film was the sixth film in the popular “Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise that began in 1984. “Freddy’s Dead” featured a CAMEO by Johnny Depp, whose screen debut was in the original “Nightmare” back in 84.
The word CAMEO
comes from the cameo brooch, a brooch or pin that featured the likeness of an individual. The cameo is a carving usually designed to have two colors, though more than two are acceptable. Stones and seashells that naturally feature two colors make good bases. Dyes and bleaches are then often used for ENHANCING

In 2007, the WRITER’S Guild of America East and the Writer’s Guild of America West united with a strike of radio, television and motion picture writers. Over 12,000 writers joined the strike to protest the wide gap between the pay given to writers and the profits by large studios. The strike started on November 5, 2007 and ended FEBRUARY 12, 2008.
FEBRUARY is the shortest month and the only month with less than 30 days. This is because the Roman calendar started with month of March. Their attempt to synchronize their calendar with the crescent moon resulted in a shortened period for the last month, which left February a little short. The name February comes from the Latin word februum, meaning “purification”.
