DO YOU KNOW THAT GOOGLE CAN PAY YOU $1M FOR A GREAT NEWS IDEA?


Google’s investing in Africa in a big way. Its startup incubators — Umbono in South Africa and Edba2 in Egypt — are great examples of this investment. Now it wants to give journalism on the continent a boost. The internet giant today announced the US$1-million African News Innovation Challenge (ANIC) which it says is aimed at helping African journalism “flourish in the digital age”. The project will provide grants from US$12 500 to US$100 000 for projects aimed at strengthening and transforming African news media…

Google’s Head of Communications for Sub-Saharan Africa Julie Taylor says the company is “committed to working with journalists across Africa to help them use technologies to gather and tell important stories”.

The challenge is being run by the African Media Initiative (AMI) — an association of media owners and operators.

“African media have a tremendous opportunity to leapfrog the business disruption faced by media in Europe and the U.S.,” says AMI Chief Executive Amadou Mahtar Ba. “The growing reach of mobile networks and improving Internet access is beginning to reshape the media landscape in Africa. We believe this competition will help African news organisations stay ahead of the curve.”

Google says the challenge is part of ongoing efforts to improve the way news is done in Africa and claims it “is already working with newsrooms across the continent to show journalists how the internet can help them be better reporters — whether it is doing advanced searches and analysis for investigative stories, or incorporating great data-based visuals or citizen voices into their reportage”.

Some of the challenge’s partners include the Omidyar Network, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the US State Department, the Konrad Adenheur Stiftung, and the World Association of Newspapers & News Producers.

“Omidyar Network is delighted to be supporting the African News Innovation Challenge,” said Stephen King, partner at Omidyar Network. “Across the continent we are seeing innovative ways in which technology is providing people with greater access to information. This challenge is a great opportunity for journalists, entrepreneurs and technologists to join forces and help enable the African media to hold their leaders to account.”

Although the competition is open to entrants from around the world, they must have at least one African partner. Entries must be submitted to the ANIC website by 10 July.

Google also sponsors the Nordic News Hacker prize in the Nordic region and supports the Global Editor Network’s data journalism prize and International Press Institute media innovation prizes.

This is absolutely free, very easy all you need is an internet facility.

I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts

“The reward for hard work is success”

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

1. open a liberty reserve account at http://www.libertyreserve.com ( this is free)

2. Open a perfect money account at http://www.perfectmoney.com (this is free)

3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

(Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to http://www.google.com to search for an exchanger close to you.)

4. Go to http://www.fast-goldex.com, and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

5. Go to http://www.superchange.ru or http://www.swapgold.com , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD

6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR .

You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.

The only place where success comes before work is the Dictionary.”

Disclaimer

How much money you make depends on your capital and the amount of time you put into this venture.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
