Once you select a story, you then click “next” to reveal a story, chat by chat.
It’s fascinating (and sobering) that even the young people writing these chat stories know what sells (remember, ATTENTION is the new currency of the web). The quick answer is YES – HOOKED has a search function that allows you to look for search terms, including inappropriate ones like “naked” or “sex.” The chats include X-Rated language and images for the story covers that can include nudity. There’s just too much adult content and Apple is surprisingly incorrect with its seldom used 9 rating.
If after all of this, you still decide to allow your teenagers have the app, then I would recommend mom or dad spend an evening just flipping through the stories.
Terry Blackhawk is retiring as director of Detroit's acclaimed Inside Out Literary Arts Project, a writing program that encourages thousands of kids to express themselves through poetry and art every year. Blackhawk is turning over to someone else a mighty mission that began 20 years ago as a Detroit Public Schools classroom project. Ask Kennedie King, a 17-year-old senior at Chippewa Valley High in Macomb County who, for two years, traveled every week to the Detroit Public Library in Midtown to attend a weekly poetry club meeting."It took me a while to convince my parents, but thankfully I did," said King, who is headed to New York University in the fall to study economics and sociology. I couldn't see my life without the poetry and the performances."King praised Blackhawk, saying "whoever takes her place must do their best to continue on with her vision and what she did with the program from the start."Over 20 years, the arts program has worked with more than 50,000 K-12 Detroit kids by sending professionally trained poets and writers into their classrooms to help them understand self-expression by writing poetry.
And talent agents and managers should never charge upfront fees; they should only be paid via a percentage-based commission when they book work.
Keep an eye out for projects that try to "bait" with a cool-sounding casting notice and then "switch" things around at the last minute by trying to charge for something that wasn't mentioned in their original notice. However, depending on the situation (and state law) the fees may be legal.
Love people, and love what you do Luckily I was never asked to do a photo production for free. It’s better to turn down a project and stick to your principles than to hope for a career boost which will never happen (trust me).
Description: HOOKED allows you to read stories in chat format for free*.
After I checked out her website and visited the RJ Resort & Marina, it was clear that Rhonda and James needed a brand new website that showcased the resort for what it really was: a dreamy retreat away from everyday city life.
‘Working for free’ is a charged topic for creatives and for photographers specifically.
One side of the discussion claims that getting your name out there, getting exposure and creating contacts and networking is worth working for free, while the other side says that no work should be unpaid and that ‘working for free’ is essentially the industry’s way of ripping photographers of their well deserved compensation, while devaluing the entire market for everyone.
What happens next is that they'll either ask for banking information so they can deposit money into the account (but instead they'll try to steal the money).
Or, to make themselves seem less suspicious, they'll send a check in the mail.
