WWW: Big Society Network, acción en la red



Mancheta de Big Society Network, Uk.

About:

The Big Society is a society in which individual citizens feel big: big in terms of being supported and enabled; having real and regular influence; being capable of creating change in their neighbourhood. Does our society pass this test at the moment?

Well, only 4 out of 10 of us believe that we can influence local decisions. Only 1 in 33 of us attend public meetings. We feel anger and frustration at the recent behaviour of both the City and Westminster and relatively powerless to change them. We are often anonymous tax-payers without a real sense of how our money gets spent. Most of us try to be reasonably good citizens but our influence seems very small.

The Big Society is a powerful vision to change this, creating a nation of empowered citizens and communities. It has been articulated by Prime Minister David Cameron, but is linked to some of the best ideas across the political spectrum.

We believe that by working in partnership with communities, businesses, charities and foundations and statutory bodies we can generate innovative solutions which can strengthen local neighbourhoods.



Big Society Network is a not for profit group who aim to help organisations deliver the practical benefits of civic engagement.

Retrato de Bibi Aisha, Time Magazine

Her winning picture shows Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old woman from Oruzgan province in Afghanistan, who fled back to her family home from her husband's house, complaining of violent treatment. The Taliban arrived one night, demanding Bibi be handed over to face justice. After a Taliban commander pronounced his verdict, Bibi's brother-in-law held her down and her husband sliced off her ears and then cut off her nose. Bibi was abandoned, but later rescued by aid workers and the American military. After time in a women's refuge in Kabul, she was taken to America, where she received counseling and reconstructive surgery. Bibi Aisha now lives in the US.

En el libro How to Run The World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance
Parag Khana


The world is entering a perfect storm of calamities: a great game for scarce natural resources, financial instability, environmental stress, and failing states. In some respects, it isn’t far off from that medieval landscape of almost a millennium ago. It is a multi-polar, multi-civilizational world in which every empire, city-state, multi-national corporation or mercenary army is out for itself. Esteemed adventurer-scholar Parag Khanna’s How to Run the World is a bold account of our current global chaos and a road-map for creating a truly resilient and stable world.


Parag Khanna is a leading geo-strategist, world traveler and author. Presently a Senior Research Fellow at the New America Foundation, he is author of the international best-sellers How to Run the World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance (2011) and The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order (2008). In 2008, Parag was named one of Esquire’s “75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century,” and one of fifteen individuals featured in WIRED magazine’s “Smart List.”

GRAPHICS: One More Graphic



ONE MORE GRAPHIC
Abayan Newspaper
Dubai

My comment:


That´s a fantastic work.
Visuals are really important on journalism nowdays.
Minute by minute, new readers don´t have time to read everything is comming to their email, twitter account, blog selection, traditional newspaper, Facebook page or any other source of information.

Infographics, interactive graphics, data visuals, diagrams or little charts helps a lot on that hurricane news season.
Readers love them.
Readers appreciate them.
Graphics help companies to develop a big brand.
People talk about graphics, and if they are fine, people get a good impressions on the company's name.
Graphics attract the ads and the money.

The Abayan graphics I show here are really impressive.
That´s a real power for the Dubai new media.
Believe me, not all graphics in the world are good.
We see everyday a lot of nasty and ugly graphics.
You need the best people on your team to shock the world.
You need time and ideas to present the best graphics.
You need your editor´s support to keep calm on your department.
And you need patience to see the results.

Looking at your work, I see all these things.
Man, Abayan are shocking the world with these stunning works.
They are clear.
I see a great art direction.
They are not only infographics, they are amazing posters!
Illustrations are admirably excellents.
That´s quality.
That´s different.
That´s the Dubai´s true visual gun.

Congrats for all your team!!!!

GRAPHICS: Infografía y literatura





"La infografía proviene de información gráfica, es decir, pretende explicar con imágenes y no con palabras. Unas veces simulamos cosas que aún no existen (edificios, etc.), otras veces recreamos hechos (un accidente, una batalla, etc.) y otras, buscamos desentrañar el significado oculto de las cosas, hallar patrones de conducta como por ejemplo que cada x tiempo, una película de guerra gana el óscar y coincide con un gobierno tal. Ésta es la parte que a mí más me gusta. Para todo esto nos servimos de programas de ordenador y de elementos como flechas, tartas, barras, líneas de tiempo, dioramas, etc. Los esquemas realizados para 'La virgen albanesa' aúnan mis dos pasiones: infografía y literatura. La primera me da de comer y la segunda me da de soñar".

Campaigns & Elections: MEJOR SI LO VEO
Buenas palabras de Ángela Paloma Martín sobre infografía y elecciones.

'Pero, he aquí la pregunta: ¿todas las empresas de análisis cuantitativo tienen infógrafos? ¿Se le da importancia a este elemento?'

'La infografía no es solo una herramienta, no es sólo un género de comunicación visual de lenguaje no verbal. La infografía va mucho más allá. Confirma y certifica el mensaje que se quiere transmitir. Estamos ante un mensaje reiterativo que nos dice mucho más que el qué y mucho más que el cómo. Gracias a la presión generada por la competencia audiovisual y al desarrollo de las nuevas tecnologías, aparece la infografía como género adicional de comunicación'.

Code of Ethics

View our internationally recognised Code of Ethics.



Being a globally oriented media service, Al Jazeera shall adopt the following code of ethics in pursuance of the vision and mission it has set for itself:

1. Adhere to the journalistic values of honesty, courage, fairness, balance, independence, credibility and diversity, giving no priority to commercial or political over professional consideration.

2. Endeavour to get to the truth and declare it in our dispatches, programmes and news bulletins unequivocally in a manner which leaves no doubt about its validity and accuracy.

3. Treat our audiences with due respect and address every issue or story with due attention to present a clear, factual and accurate picture while giving full consideration to the feelings of victims of crime, war, persecution and disaster, their relatives and our viewers, and to individual privacies and public decorum.

4. Welcome fair and honest media competition without allowing it to affect adversely our standards of performance and thereby having a “scoop” would not become an end in itself.

5. Present the diverse points of view and opinions without bias and partiality.

6. Recognise diversity in human societies with all their races, cultures and beliefs and their values and intrinsic individualities so as to present unbiased and faithful reflection of them.

7. Acknowledge a mistake when it occurs, promptly correct it and ensure it does not recur.

8. Observe transparency in dealing with the news and its sources while adhering to the internationally established practices concerning the rights of these sources.

9. Distinguish between news material, opinion and analysis to avoid the snares of speculation and propaganda.

10. Stand by colleagues in the profession and give them support when required, particularly in the light of the acts of aggression and harassment to which journalists are subjected at times. Cooperate with Arab and international journalistic unions and associations to defend freedom of the press.
