Une nouvelle étude s'en prend aux jeux vidéo violents. Selon les auteurs, ils rendraient les participants plus agressifs et surtout, ces effets s'amplifieraient dans le temps.

Free images for your student site

Create your own newspaper from every school in the world

Prof JML's insight:

However, there are a few sites that offer news-related images for free on your site. All you have to know is where to look and how to search them correctly.

Here are some of the options to consider.

1. Picapp

Picapp is less of a site and a search tool and more of a plugin for your site. Working with WordPress, Blogger, TypePad and other sites where you can edit the template, PicaApp automatically looks at your post, finds relevant images for it, and creates a widget that looks somewhat similar to Coverflow on various Apple products.

But what makes Picapp interesting is that it doesn’t merely locate public domain or open-licensed images. Instead, it pulls from a variety of paid stock photo libraries including Getty Images, Newscom and more. In short, these are many of the same photos that newspapers, magazines and mainstream media outlets will be using in their coverage, and likely cost them a decent amount to license, available to you for free.

The big problem with PicApp is that you don’t get to control which images are displayed, PicApp makes the choices for you. It is also worth noting that the embed is in Flash so that there isn’t much hope for SEO benefit from having the content on your site.

Still, if you regularly discuss current events on your site and have a hard time finding good stock photos to use, this may be a good way to add some visuals to your site.

2. Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons is the media wing of Wikipedia and its related sites, including Wikinews. It boats well over 10 million items in its database, including many millions of images.

For its images, Wikimedia Commons pulls from a wide variety of sources including public domain images, meaning either they are very old or were taken by the U.S. government, and Creative Commons-licensed images, usually provided by the photographer.

Though nearly all of the images in Wikimedia Commons are available elsewhere, Wikimedia makes it easy to search them and even offers tools for easy inclusion in your site.

The only caveat with Wikimedia Commons is that you have to be careful with the license of the image you are looking to use. Some, namely CC-licensed images, will require attribution and may be limited only to certain uses. As such, take a moment before you put the image in your site and make sure that you can comply with the license.

All in all, it’s a great repository for a variety of images, including many that are related to current events.

3. Wylio

Finally, virtually any time a current event unfolds in front of any large group of people, it’s almost assured that they will be taking pictures and video of it and, as they do, they will be uploading those images to Flickr. Even better for you as a blogger, many of those images on Flickr are made available for free reuse via a Creative Commons license.

Though you can easily search for Creative Commons images via Flickr’s advanced search, embedding and attribution can be a bit of a mess. As such, you may want to look at Wylio, a service that makes it easy to search for and embed Creative Commons images into your site.

Since Flickr won’t have images for every news story, you may have to be a bit more creative when using Wylio. For example, if a story you’re writing about involves a celebrity, you may not be able to find an image directly from the event, but you should be able to easily get an image from an appearance by them to use.

That being said, with a few creative searches, you can likely find a good image for any story on a current event.

Bottom Line

All in all, if you want to get news and current event-related images into your blog, there are many ways to do it and without paying for a licensing fee or worrying about being sued for copyright infringement.

The only caveat is that you will, in many cases, have to comply with additional licensing rules and make sure that your particular use of the image is allowed under the law.

Still, this is a small price to pay for timely, relevant and powerful images of ongoing or recent news stories. Historically, many of these images have cost quite a good deal to license and to have them available for your site for free is a very powerful and amazing thing.

If you’re a current events bloggers, this is, almost certainly, not an opportunity you want to pass up.

El maestro José Antonio Abreu lo aconsejó para que participara en la competencia de dirección Gustav Mahler, que se lleva a cabo en Bamberg, Alemania en el año 2004, "Anda a esa competencia que tú puedes ganar" y Gustavo le había respondido "Si usted lo dice así, entonces voy".
