Practical: Photo essay

Three alternative headlines of the Week 8 press release.
Assisting authorities in wake of violence – Since writing news headlines relies on accuracy, I have opted for an accurate statement of what is being actioned as a result of what has occurred at the event.
Security scrutinised at Brisbane event – This option is relevant, as the purpose of a news headline is to summarise the contents of the article, including the subject, verb, and object in a few short words.
Support for victims of vicious attack – It is vital to grab the attention of the audience with a headline which is my reason for choosing this one.
Technical: Quiz 10 – Punctuation
After the excitement of getting full marks first go last week, this week was a let down. I found some of the questions a little more difficult and my result was 70%. After revisiting the chapter, particularly the correct use of apostrophe ‘s’, I managed 100% on my second attempt.
