New Times Internship Day #10: Tuesday, June 22, 2010. Worked 10:00 am-5:00 pm.

Today I received a new project. I was assigned to add what are called “cutlines” to pictures Devin Dejarlais (a staff member) added to a slideshow for the website. Cutlines are captions that are usually seen under pictures. For instance, in the slideshow, there was a picture of the hookah bar “Off the Hookah” under the category “After Dark”. This hookah bar won “Best Hookah Bar”, so under the picture I wrote “Click here to read about the Best Hookah Bar winner!” and added a link to it. This link will lead readers to a story about that place on the website. I did this for all the pictures in this category as well as all the pictures in the other categories for “Sports and Recreation”, “People and Places”, “Music” and “Dish”. I learned that by pressing the buttons “Ctrl C” I can copy words. I also learned that by pressing “Ctrl V” I can paste words. I thought this only pertained to the Paint program when copying images from Adobe Flash Player, so I was very happy to learn I could do this in every day life. This is due to the fact that it is faster to copy and paste things this way as opposed to right clicking with one’s mouse and finding the copy and paste options there. Overall, today was much busier than yesterday but was rewarding when I completed my task.
