    TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ -

    November 12 to 18, 2007
    - Learning Kosovo -
    (FIRST PERSON) Concordia University journalism student Kinia Adamczyk
    recently spent three months in the former Yugoslavia. Here this
    journalist-in-the-making relates her trepidation before traveling to
    Kosovo and her surprise at finding that press reports about the region
    are not accurate.

    -The new news...-
    (LAYOUT, GRAPHICS & DESIGN) ... is how technology is giving photogs an
    edge in creating and delivering multimedia content. Greg Locke looks at
    some recent examples and tools to get the job done.

    - The Irvings and the courts -
    (MEDIA OWNERSHIP) Deb Jones tracks the story of a New Brunswick newspaper
    family's legal struggle against an ex-employee who allegedly stole their
    publishing secrets and now wants to start a competing newspaper.

    War reporting: Lest we forget, great war journalists have always brought
    humanity to the foreground of their reports.

    "I found a great way to boost my career in journalism was to leave
    Canada. Sad, but true. We produce a lot of great journalists, but there's
    not much work for them, let alone at a decent wage."
