With 2009 promising to be an exciting, high-growth year for this website, we're putting together the core values which will help guide our web community into the future. Our staff have identified six values so far: 1) We are a community. 2) Listening to our community is critical to our development and success. 3) Our community is strongest when our members support the community and each other. 4) We value and strive to provide maximum reward for the unique expertise and creative abilities of each individual member, in a manner commensurate to the member's contribution, regardless of the member's existing celebrity or financial status. 5) We seek to deliver the most valuable information, as fast as possible. 6) Fairness and a merit-based reward system are the foundation of everything we do. Putting aside all other issues and ideas you may have about this website, what do you think of these core values? Are they the right values for this community? Should they be changed, re-worded, reduced? Are there other values you'd like to see included? And if so, what are they? After receiving your feedback, we will post the results in our "Latest News" section, as well as on a special "Our Values" page, and in our Terms and Conditions. Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and prosperous 2009!

We're pleased to trial a new concept we're calling "You Interview," with the idea of encouraging greater interaction between our community and the people who make a difference in your community. Please read this query carefully, because it's unlike previous queries we've featured here in the past:

We're asking you to contact -- by phone or email -- a journalist or editor in your area and ask them some questions.

This week's topic: What's an important news story which they feel their audience needs to be more aware of? And why is this story so important?

Here are the rules you must follow. (Note: Council members should mark unacceptable any submission which is in breach of these rules).

1) The journalist or editor you interview can work offline, but must be represented (e.g. a staff page) somewhere on the Internet -- and you must provide the web address which contains his or her contact details, or their company's contact details.

2) You must inform the journalist or editor who you interview that you are a member of the network, and that the interview will be published on and its network of sites.

3) You must include the person's name, title, the name of their organization, and their location.

4) Then make sure you include your exact questions and the person's exact answers. The wording must be accurate.

You should also feel free, if you desire, to ask your interview subject additional questions related to the topic.

That's it! We look forward to some fascinating interviews!

In the last week, headlines around the world have appeared about the violent deaths of up to 200 people in India -- not from terrorist attacks, but first a fire in a train in South India; and second, a stampede at a temple. Such types of accidents, which are usually preventable and often the result of negligence, happen daily in India, on a smaller scale and don't appear in the news. In Mumbai alone, about a dozen people die every day on commuter trains. Pedestrians are hit by cars, gas cylinders explode, lorries, tractors, buses and boats are overloaded and crash, liquor is adulterated, patients are misdiagnosed, and so on. Are we as a culture too accepting of these so-called "accidents?" Why or why not? Are many of these "accidents" more preventable, and causing more unecessary misery than we may realize; and if so, what do we need to do ensure that our society begins putting more emphasis on safety and accountability, rather than accept tragic accidents as a part of our daily lives?
