Coast Coverage: Day 3 (34 PHOTOS, VIDEO)

UPDATE: April 12

DAY 4 in San Diego began with sessions from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Each staffer attended and took notes to bring back to the staff to share after spring break. The morning was rushed as over 4,000 journalism students from across the country crowded the hallways and floors of the Hilton Bayfront Hotel and Convention Center.

After Feather adviser Greg Stobbe and editors Tynin Fries and Viviana Hinojosa’s session on “Thriving in Cyber Space,” the team ate lunch and headed back to Fresno. While they could not stay for the awards presentation, The Feather Online was awarded Third Place for Publication Website Small School category.
Last year The Feather won an
Online Pacemaker and Best of Show in San Francisco.

For the first full day of the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) and Journalism Education Association (JEA) spring conference, The Feather staff attended many informational classes about the importance of learning different journalistic techniques, April 11.

The Feather staff had the choice of attending seminars which were hosted by award winning and nationally recognized professionals from different fields.

Senior Editor Viviana Hinojosa and Tynin Fries, Editor-in-Chief had the opportunity to chat with a renowned visual artist, Geoff McGhee through a web series in the morning. Later, the duo also attended an exclusive lunch with the President of the JEA, Mark Newton, alongside six other student from around the country.

“Being able to chat with Geoff McGhee was a great experience,” Hinojosa said. “We learned so much about visualization and how we can incorporate it in The Feather. I only wish we had the chance to speak with him at the beginning of the year so we could have been working on visualizations all year. Also, the lunch with JEA’s president was very enlightening. It was great to hear from someone of prominence in the journalism world.”

Over 4,000 journalism students from across the country were able to interact with seasoned professionals, followed by question and answer sessions which were held after each seminar.

During the students free time apart from the conference they experience the vintage culture of Old San Diego. The group toured the local attractions and visited authentic shops and businesses.

Old San Diego attempts to capture the feel of a real life western town, based on San Diego of the 1800s. The pageantry of the settlement extends from its products to its employees where employees dress in old clothing and speak in ornate accents.

A trip to San Diego would not be complete without a seafood meal. The staff dined at Joe’s Crab Shack and enjoyed gourmet seafood together for dinner. The shack was shaking intermittently during the meal, as the staff entertained the customers through dance.

Sophomore Rees Roggenstein loved seeing the culture and trying old-fashioned products like sodas.

“My favorite part of Old San Diego was the old-fashioned sodas,” Roggenstein said. “All we have now is Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, etc It’s nice to taste some of the old ornate drinks San Diego used to offer.”

The editors Tynin Fries and Viviana Hinojosa prepare to teach their afternoon class, “Thriving in Cyberspace” which will educate journalists on how to manage their staff, April 12.

Many overlook disease and disregard their personal health. How one may take care of themselves and their diet can determine many things. Due to these components, the most common and high risk disease Americans are faced with today is obesity.

Obesity is the elephant in the room; everyone can see and identify it, but no one is willing to address the individuals or the pressing issue obesity presents.

Obesity is the top cause of disease and death in the U.S. John Mowatt writes about tempting additions to food; sugar.

“Sugar is a product which the human body does not process well. We are not designed to consume the large quantities of sugar that have become a part of our modern diet.” Mowatt said. “Whether that sugar be sucrose (cane sugar), fructose or glucose it is definitely advisable to keep its consumption to a minimum.”

We are all becoming prisoners to our own cravings, And what has become one of the greatest cravings of all is our desire for sugar.

Candy, carbonated drinks, sweet rolls and preserved food items tend to appeal and temp most because of their enticing appearance and flavorful tastes. Eating habits of todays youth is quickly becoming compromised because of the availability of fast food and prepackaged items. Quick and easy is usually the answer, but because of this, teens, children and young adults are putting their health and lives at risk.

Students lack the understanding and knowledge of the problems that sugar may cause and the effects it has on the human body.

According to Wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar sugar gets its name from a substance found in many natural foods.

“Sugar is the generalized name for a class of chemically-related sweet-flavored substances,” Dietriffic said. “Most of which are used as food, such as fruits, honey, plants, and grains.”

Personal trainer, and new Physical Education teacher Ericlee Gilmore beleives sugar is a poison to our bodies.

“Anytime we have consumed a considerable amount of sugar, there are a stream of bad things that happen to your body, one of those things is cancer,” Gilmore said. “Sugar used to only be found in candy but now it is in everything, making people more at risk to having cancer. Ways students can take care of their bodies is by making healthy choices and also by exercising more.

“Glucose is one of the sugars that are found in our blood.” When we eat foods such as pasta or bread, the sugars and starch from the food is digested and broken down into simple sugars. Glucose is needed for our bodies to function, but it is when we overdose our intake of sugar filled foods, that is when our health is put in jeopardy.

Sucrose and high fructose corn syrup, both of these sugars, are fairly similar in their functions, and in what they contribute to our bodies.

The ingredients that make up sugar, fructose and sucrose contain harmful chemicals that can damage your body, according to lifehacker.com.

“They are both highly sweet and they both contain a large amount of fructose,” Lifehacker said. “Sucrose is 50% fructose and high fructose corn syrup is 55% fructose. These are fairly high amounts compared to normal corn syrup. In most cases, fructose is bad for you because of how it’s processed by the body. Fructose can only be metabolized by the liver, which is not a good thing.”

The more sugar that our bodies take in, the more we crave it. The cravings we have for sugar are not natural reactions. Our bodies also crave carbs; carbs are broken down into simple sugars. School secretary Vicky Belmont explains the functions and sugar.

“We don?t need to worry about our sugar intake,” Vicky Belmont said. “The amount of carbs we consume, is what is most important. Carbs, when they are broken down in your body, become a simple sugar, which in turn becomes sugar which will raise your blood sugar.”

Our obsession for sugar is becoming an issue. It has become an imminent addiction that many people are dealing with, but yet we ourselves do not do anything to fight it off.

As teens high calorie foods and drinks that are drowned in sugar are necessary for a ?satisfying? snack or meal. It has become almost as necessary as sleeping.

Soda is one of the leading causes of teen obesity. It is the favored beverage of many teens. It is high in sugar and high in calories.

There is absolutely no nutritional value to soda. It is water mixed with syrup and the darker it is the more unhealthy.

(PODCAST) Truth about sugar: Oct. 22, 2013–

Junior Ashley Garcia sees the danger of intaking too much sugar but decides to somewhat overlook the consequences.

“I drink soda all the time; I know it’s not good for me but I like it,” Garcia said. “Most of the foods that us teens eat are probably eaten based off of if it tastes good. Thats why I personally enjoy having sugar, I know its not the best for me but I like it anyway.”

Teenage girls are far more at risk to being overweight than their male counterparts. Their bodies finish developing around the age of 18 to 19, bodies expand and they are more easily affected by foods than boys are.

Vicki Belmont and believes students should stay away from the more processed foods.

“Students need to eat natural foods, other than processed foods,” Belmont, said. “Processed foods have a lot of unnecessary sugar, and other additives. Maybe eating a banana or apple.”

The average intake of sugar for adolescent males was 143 grams per day, which is a much bigger amount of total carbohydrates needed for the body.

Sugar is a necessary aliment for the human body. Consuming sugar at moderation is okay and also very much needed for our bodies. Our bodies need sugar for the energy it contains. Carbs have been made out to be a total enemy for our bodies but it is what is put into the carbs that makes it our enemy. We need to be active to allow those fats and sugars to be digested and processed properly.

Doing activities such as biking, running and jogging allows students bodies to combat diseases. It boosts their mood, self-esteem and gives them energy that they can not find in foods.

Making a straight cut, and totally kicking sugar out your diet is not easy, so instead of straight eliminating, it is easier to make a transition to fruits and plants. Fruits contain sugar, but also contain fiber, which is more easily digestible, and allows the digestive system to flow more easily.

Sugar has it benefits, other than its scrumptious flavor but people of today need to be more attentive to what is being consumed by their bodies.

Campus parent passes away in collision

UPDATE: MARCH 8

The memorial service for Mr. Healy will be held at 2 p.m. at The Bridge Church, March 9. The burial services will be held at Clovis Cemetery at 11 a.m., March 11.

The family wishes that all attendees bring a written memory of Mr. Healy, or a written way that he inspired each person. Flowers and donations can be sent to the EECU, P.O. Box 5242, Fresno, CA, 93755. Payable to “James Healy Memorial Fund, account number 11858921.” Funds will go towards his three children, Jessica, Josh and Jake.

The school has provided a sign-up sheet to provide the family with 24-hour prayer throughout the week. Only the slots of 3 and 4 a.m. are still available.

As Mr. Healy was an avid cyclist, a “Mr. Healy Memorial Ride” has been set up by FresnoBikeParty Team. The ride will be eight miles long so to include as many people as possible. Everyone is instructed to wear helmets, and those under 18 are requited by law to do so. The route is currently being re-done to provide a more safe and level ride for the many first-timers attending. Check the Facebook page for more information.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE

The Feather regrets to inform its readers that on the morning of March 5, campus parent Jim Healy (55) passed away after a bicycle collision with a car in Fresno, CA.

The accident occurred around 5:30 a.m., when Mr. Healy was hit by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in the Copper Ave. and Auberry Rd. area. He was then taken to Community Regional Medical Center, but despite efforts, the physicians were unable to save him.

Mr. Healy was the head of the Technology Department at Sunnyside High School, where he is also a teacher. He graduated from California State University, Fresno, in 1986 and attended The Bridge Church in Fresno, CA.

He is survived by his wife, Janine Healy, his daughter, campus senior, Jessica Healy, 18, and his two sons Josh Healy and Jake Healy.

The Feather staff offers its condolences to the Healy family and all families affected in the accident. The Feather encourages readers to leave messages for the families through the comments section below.

Principal Todd Bennett expresses the grief experienced for many campus students because of Mr. Healy’s connection with Jessica’s peers.

“We lost somebody that was very close to many of our students, especially our seniors,” Bennett said. “A lot of our seniors spent a lot of time at Jim’s house, he helped them with the NOTS {Night of the Stars} video, he opened up Sunnyside High School every Saturday for a few weeks and he was just a great guy.”

The student body was presented the news during chapel at around 9:45 a.m. where the students were given the chance to pray for the Healy family and write notes and messages for the family to read later on.

Bennett encourages those wishing to help to pray for the family and possibly take them meals, using a specific website to avoid conflicts. To help with meals visit takethemameal.com, using keyword Healy and password Healy, then click Janine Healy. Though slots are only available for a limited number, more slots will be opened later on.

“It was a very tragic accident that happened this morning, so what we can do to help the family is to pray,” Bennett said. “If you want to take them a meal, there is a website called ‘takethemameal.com,’ the key word is Healy and the password is also Healy. Once you get in, you can sign up to take a dinner to them. As far as Jessica and her family goes, the best thing to do is just let them know you love them.”

Currently no information is available about the services, but will be available in coming days. Check back later for updates and more information.

Anchor offers tips for podcasting

Callista Fries is The Feather’s multimedia anchor. She hosts her weekly announcement video, FC Underground where she reports on each week’s activities. She also publishes a podcast each Friday on her channel Live from Callyfornia.

After weeks of shadowing alumna Brooke Stobbe, ’12, a four-year podcaster, I thought I was ready to go. Sitting down to start writing out my script was both exciting and scary. After finishing, I was so proud of myself, I thought my podcast was great. Then I had my mentor proof read my podcast, and she changed more then what was written in the first place.

Becoming a little discouraged. I began to think I was never going to figure this out, but I tried writing another podcast this time my mentor said it was great, she said it was almost perfect.

So a year and a half ago, I thought I was ready to record for the first time, boy was I wrong.

Starting to record my palms were sweaty, I was thirsty but felt ready. I came to the end of my podcast and I was feeling confident. My mentor said ?wow you did it all in one take,? I looked at her in shock, not aware I was able to pause while recording.

So I began to edit my podcast, I could hear my voice shake, my lack of confidence and the quiet sound of my spit in the background. I then figured out a lot of new, helpful things not only by watching my mentor but also by experience.

Here are some tips and helpful hints on how to be a better podcaster:

1. When you are podcasting, one of the most important things is to speak clearly, enunciate, end all words strong and make sure to speak with punctuation.

2. In your podcast if you say something funny or make a joke, don?t be afraid to giggle during a sentence; it’s not a bad thing!

3. It is extremely important that you remember to speak very very slow. If you speed up it will not only shorten the length of your podcast but it will also be difficult to understand you.

4. Breathing is a big part of podcasting, if you forget to breathe or cut out your breaths while editing, it will sound unnatural or rushed. So make sure while speaking you breathe as though you are in a normal conversation.

5. Making mistakes is inevitable, so when you mess up do not freak out, just start the sentence over again, not just the word, the entire sentence.

6. When you are recording, make sure you are conversational, fluctuate your voice as you usually do in a normal conversation.

7. If you are in the middle of podcasting, and you get thirsty all of a sudden or you have to go to the bathroom, do not be afraid to stop and start again, you can pause and come back later and continue.

8. Before you begin to speak, make sure you have a plan or a script as to what you wish to say, if you are unprepared you will sounds unsure and you will stumble over words.

9. In your script, try your best to not use cliches, if you do use them, make sure it is only rarely, when you use them it makes you look like you did not care to look for other words to possibly use.

10. If you podcast on student life, like I do, make sure you relate it to more people than just yourself or just your close knit group of friends. Make it relatable to people in all circumstances, it will make people more interested in listening if they can actually get something out of it.

11. When finding someone to interview, pick a person who does not have a monotone voice and speaks with diction, someone who is passionate about the topic you want to talk about.

12. Interviewing someone should come natural, you should speak as though there is no microphone and it is just a normal conversation.

These are guidelines by which I podcast, and it seems to work pretty well for me. I hope these tips help and are very useful to you in your future podcasting.
