This new wonder has optical image stabilization for the camera, and a longer battery life, and an iPad-style landscape mode that displays more content on the screen. How could a business owner not want to communicate through this beautiful new technology? Well, have these business owners considered the consumer is looking at the phone and not the content? You need to use a clear form of communication. A tested, sound, reliable form of communication, uncluttered from trends, noise and flashing lights.”

Students also shadowed such U-T staff members as photographer David Brooks, U-T TV anchor Luis Cruz, pop music writer George Varga and Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Breen.

The U-T arranged for press credentials for the students to spend a day at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials annual conference in San Diego, where they sat in on panels covering such topics as binational issues, education technology and civil rights.

For six weeks, the professionals at the U-T San Diego take these bright and talented high school students under their wing, teach them the tools of their trade, and show them first-hand what its like to work in journalism, stated Frank Urtasun, Regional Vice President of External Affairs for SDG&E. It is an extraordinary program that inspires these students to be tomorrows leaders in journalism, and SDG&E is very proud to support it.

Alexander is editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, The Augustinian, attended a student journalism camp at Stanford University and is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
