Nikolai Berger's curator insight, April 24, 2013 9:32 AM

Here's an example of good news. Things are told as they are. Why can't people patiently wait for news like this? Why do they have to jump to conclusions and label things? how does that solve anything? The News' agencies try to get information as quickly as they can not because they want to, but because the public is demanding for this. If everyone began to act patiently and waited for concrete information while leaving their imaginative minds at bay, we would get proper news and avoid unnecessary conflicts that could do more damage than the issue the news is covering in the first place.

Poor no more? Oxford study says global poverty decreasing | Deseret News

Poor no more? Oxford study says global poverty decreasing | Deseret News | Global news | Scoop.it

The world's poorest people are becoming significantly better off, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative. Researchers estimate that countries with the most poor, including Nepal, Rwanda and Bangladesh, could see acute poverty erased within 20 years if development continues at current rates.

The Oxford study uses a new, multidimensional measure of poverty. "Poverty is often defined by one-dimensional measures, such as income. But no one indicator alone can capture the multiple aspects that constitute poverty,"according to the Initiative's website.

This article includes too much sensationalism. The public have the right to know about the suspects origins, but how much is enough? The one who shared the information included too much information on the bombers' mother. This is the kind of news we should try to diminish. Draw a line between important/valuable information, and merely sensational/trivial information that could cause more harm. Sensationalism is gossip. Gossip creates anger in many that are blind to its subjectivity.
