Fourth Year Journalism student wins prestigious award

Gertie Doyle, wife of the late Vincent Doyle and Award winner Craig Hughes.

FOURTH year Journalism and New Media student, Craig Hughes, has been awarded the inaugural Vincent Doyle Award for Investigative Journalism. Mr Hughes won the award for his Final Year Project which was an investigation into the under reporting of suicide by coroners in Ireland.
The award was introduced to honour the memory of the late Irish Independent editor Vinny Doyle. The presentation was attended by members of the Doyle family, as well as senior executives of Independent News and Media plc.
Mr Hughes is also nominated for two student media awards, which will be presented in Dublin tomorrow. Mr Hughes has been widely published in both national and local newspapers including the Irish Independent, the Sunday Independent, the Sunday Business Post, the Irish Examiner and the Connacht Tribune. His investigation, published in the Sunday Independent earlier this month uncovered major discrepancies in the way suicide verdicts are recorded by coroners throughout the country.
Fellow journalism student, Aisling Hussey was the award’s runner up, with her investigation into health services in Co Kerry. Ms Hussey won ‘Journalist of the Year’ in last weeks ULSU Media Awards and has worked as a journalist for the Kerryman newspaper for six months in 2010 and still regularly contributes to that newspaper.
She will be embarking on a placement with the Irish Farmers Journal in August and has been shortlisted for ‘Student Journalist of the Year’ (national media) in this year’s Smedia awards.

    Anytime i start a video call/ web cam/voice call on messenger, skype, google talk, google messenger, my computer totally freezes, and gives an mirror. I have to restart it manually. Sometimes it comes with a blue screen, and it restarts itself.. I was using Windows vista, and this scenario existed after i had XP OR 7 on this computer. What is definitely wrong? Equipment problems? There is no virus discovered after i scanned the computer with Kaspersky..

    If somebody like Julia Roberts or Natalie Portman had a personal blog page where they will posted images of their vacations or something, do you still take the capsules seriously as actors? Do you consider celebrities with personal websites are much less credible and taken less seriously than patients who no longer? Furthermore, would you visit their particular blogs to see what they are up to?.

    It is extremely annoying in my opinion that Opera always starts mp3, wmv, mpg and opther file types in the internet browser window. Will there be a way to set it to always open up these data files in winamp, VLC gamer, or anything else?.
