Interviews - Good and Bad

Good interview
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOtJUmiUZ08
She seems interested in what Katy Perry and isn't rude. She asks a lot of questions and doesn't try to make Katy embarrassed about anything. Some of the time you can see that Katy isn't expecting some of the questions but she still answers them. Most of what the presenter says seem to be written down as notes as that s what she is holding so at least you know she is prepaid.

Bad interview
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X1VIyZe3Ws&feature=related
This interview is bad because of the presenter, he is unable to stop laughing because of the mans voice. No one should laugh at something like that when it comes to interviewing them as the man did look embarrassed, also the woman next to him looked upset the entire time so it looks like something bad has happened. I couldn't understand what was being said because it is in a different language but the presenter did apologise at first but continued to laugh.

Paramore - monster music video

Paramores new music video for their song monster seem to come out of no wear. Throughout the video they seem to have a lot of anger but they do not show it to well. The  video is different for the band as most of their music videos are colourful and bright, in this one there are few colours so that you focus more on the song. In the video they have a lot happening, a lot more than normal and some times there is to much much going on and too fast. Their music hasn't changed to much but the band has, as this is the second song about there band and how they have broken up. In conclusion i do believe that they are still getting better no matter how many of them thetre are in the band

knife crime - whats being done

knife crime

The Restriction of Offensive Weapons Act 1959 banned the carrying, manufacture, sale, purchase, hire or lending of flick-knives and ''gravity knives''. The Criminal Justice Act 1988 contained a list of prohibited martial arts-style weapons and made it an offence to carry an article with a blade or sharp point in a public place. The Offensive Weapons Act 1996 made it illegal to sell knives to children under 16. The Knives Act 1997 prohibited the marketing of combat knives.

knife crime

Up to 60,000 young people, mostly male, may be stabbed and injured each year, the equivalent of more than 160 victims a day, according to a worst-case estimate for knife violence in England and Wales.
On the other hand, the figure may be around 22,000 each year for victims aged 10 - 25-year-old.
The different between the two estimates - derived from the questioning of around 600 under-25s about whether they had been "knifed or stabbed", and then extrapolated to the wider population, with all the statistical vagaries that entails - reflects the lack of precise information about the scale of knife crime in England and Wales.
  • In 2007 - 27 Teenagers were stabbed to death in London
  • The first fatal stabbing that happened in the UK in 2008 was in the early hours of the new year!
  • 3 More fatal stabbings happened in the UK within the first week

She has been appointed a government adviser and in February published a report on tackling knife crime where she said "the key word is prevention, not cure".
Meanwhile, Mr Winnard, joint managing director of the firm which has been making Uncle Joe's Mint Balls for 113 years, said: "It's great to be recognised."
