Amanda Knox is a freelance reporter now

Amanda Knox, who in January was reconvicted in absentia for the murder of Meredith Kercher, has been given a job as a freelance reporter for small weekly American paper the West Seattle Herald. 
 Speaking to the Daily Beast, The West Seattle Herald’s web editor, Patrick Robinson, said
“We simply asked her as we would ask anyone of that age and stage, if they would be interested in writing for us as a qualified writer of that scale and this level of journalism.”

He said the paper approached her “to give her the opportunity of a normal life.”
Robinson described her as a “very bright, very capable, highly qualified writer.”
Knox initially wrote using a pseudonym before switching to her real name.


Very British Problems may become TV show

The twitter account @SoVeryBritish may be turned into a television show.

The account has 892,000 followers, including Stephen Fry and Ricky Gervais.
British dilemmas it has tweeted about in the past include “Apologising profusely for allowing your foot to be trodden on” and “Accidentally touching a fellow commuter’s hand and recoiling as if you’ve just been bitten by an adder”.
