'South Africa’s financial sector operates in a challenging economic environment. Despite
remarkable progress since the end of apartheid in 1994, South Africa still has one of the world’s
highest unemployment and income inequality rates. Slow economic growth since 2008 has further
aggravated unemployment, real disposable income is stagnant, and households are heavily indebted.
As a result, banks are increasingly exposed to credit risk, while households and firms are vulnerable
to a rise in interest rates. The large fiscal and current account deficits, a weak growth outlook, the
reliance of banks on money market funds (MMFs) for short-term wholesale funding, and banks’
active trading in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market make South Africa susceptible to
contagion and sudden stops of capital flows. This susceptibility and potential for spillovers have been
exacerbated by the significant concentration and interconnections in the financial system, and the
substantial expansion of South African banks into sub-Saharan Africa....'

Content Beyond Text: The Multimedia Features Journalists Seek in an Online Newsroom

Content Beyond Text: The Multimedia Features Journalists Seek in an Online Newsroom | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

In our last post, we looked at three content features— PR contacts, press releases and breaking news—that journalists ranked high in importance in the 2015 Online Newsroom Survey Report. But in today’s digital world, “content” is defined more broadly than “text,” so in this post we’ll explore the multimedia elements of an online newsroom—things like photos, videos and audio files—and their relative importance among the journalists we surveyed. We’ll also take a look at online newsrooms that do multimedia well.

A photo is worth a thousand words
Given the budget cuts at media outlets over the past several years, it’s not surprising that 96% of journalists said photos are important, making them the #5 feature to have in your newsroom. High-quality photos can make the difference in getting a story published about your company or organization, so providing an easy-to-access, well-organized photo gallery on your news site is crucial....

As the journalist job continues to be complex, collaborative and evolving these news rooms offer a glimpse into the future of journalism. It is moving to an experience where the journalists is a conduit of information which can be shared and accessible to all in a very short period of time. The inclusion of  photos, videos and audio allows a consistent product day in and day out.
