News and articles are everywhere. Almost every day you hear or see a news story about a natural disaster, crime, political turmoil or some other topic that captured your attention. But do you know what the word news really means? Have you ever wondered what is considered newsworthy? In this article we will look at definitions of news as well as how to tell if something is really newsworthy.
NATIONAL NEWS: A term referring to any news story that involves the general public. News related to national issues tends to be more long time affairs. Such as the long time national politics that has transpired in the U.S. over the last 100 years. Examples of long-time news stories on the web which has been on hold since the new moratorium was put in place, that is now on hold as a result of the new government.
SPORTS LEGENITY: A news story that is used since the start of a sporting event to either support or oppose a particular athlete or to endorse a product or service. For example, in regards to the upcoming NBA basketball finals, sports figures and commentators have been widely calling for the fans to boycott the finals. In an attempt to increase awareness, the NCAA has already made public statements condemning the move. This is only one example of a sports-related story that has been used since the beginning of time to either support or oppose an individual or event.
EURO TRADER: A person who trades currency for profit, in the same way that someone would trade stocks. A recent news story explained that a number of European Union citizens plan to leave the country in large numbers in the months leading up to the prom night. As expected, the European Commission has begun moves to curb the influx. EURO trader reaction to this news was swift and has so far focused on speculations regarding the impact on the EU as a whole. Some EURO traders have indicated that with so many people leaving, the economy will suffer as a result. Other traders feel that with the influx of people coming from Northern Ireland and other places, the potential economic benefits from increased trade will outweigh the losses of the influx.
GERORIE: One of the most common topics of discussion surrounding any US event or country is immigration. Any US citizen who is here illegally could face deportation. Therefore, any news story on immigration should focus on the impact of deportation and how it will affect the US economy. It should also mention that the United States is a nation of immigrants, and with so many of them coming to California and other wealthy states such as New York, this means good news for those hoping to live in those states.
GILGASSHE AND JAZZ: There is no doubt about the fact that both these two terms are used by Irish speakers, but there is some confusion as to what they actually mean. Anagrams of the word Gaz and Shte are often confusing because both begin with the same letter, G, while the word Jazzy comes from a different alphabet. Either way, both refer to music that is popular among the Irish. Jazzy is often used to describe today’s more racy songs, while Gazzy refers to traditional music that is popular among the Irish. Both are words that are heavily used in Irish culture so it makes sense to look at how they will impact the US economy.
