    FIELD NOTES
    (xxx)The riot survival guide for journalists(xxx)
    Freelance journalist Dominik Bärlocher has spent the past three years on
    "riot duty" at a Swiss newspaper. He's turned his experience covering
    violent football riots and May Day protests into a handy survival guide
    for journalists about what to wear, how to behave in protest crowds and
    minimize the effect of crowd control weapons, and what to do if you're
    arrested.

    TOWN HALL
    (xxx)What's in an anchor?(xxx)
    When CTV and Global both announced, within days of each other, that they
    had found new hosts for their flagship newscasts, a big part of the
    storyline drew on the fact that they had chosen women: Lisa LaFlamme at
    CTV and Dawna Friesen at Global. But what's the story behind the story?
    Susan Newhook reports.

    VISUAL JOURNALISM
    Afghan photojournalism gets Canadian support

    As the war in Afghanistan drags on, Canadians have seen a lot of photos
    depicting violence and soldiers through the lens of international
    photojournalists. But what about Afghanistan as seen through Afghan eyes?
    Enter the Canadian Embassy and the editor-in-chief of Kabul weekly, who
    co-created a photojournalism course in Kabul. One of the teachers, Ahmad
    Zia Kechkenni, writes about the class and shows off some student work.

    STUDENTS' LOUNGE
    (xxx)Factchecking: Off the rails(xxx)
    Prue Hemelrijk and the golden age of fact-checking - and why magazines
    will never see such rigour again. This week we feature Suniya
    Kukaswadia's feature for the summer issue of The Ryerson Review of
    Journalism.
