	<?php // $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'category_name' => 'latest-news', 'posts_per_page' => 8, 'paged' => $paged ) ); ?>

	<!-- Start our WP Query -->
	<?php //while ($the_query -> have_posts()) : $the_query -> the_post();
					$args = array('category_name' => 'cat name 1','cat name 2' => 8, 'paged' => $paged );
query_posts($args); ?><?php if ( have_posts() ) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

	<!-- Display the Post Title with Hyperlink -->
	<li>
		<div class='row'>
			<?php
					 if ( has_post_thumbnail()) {
							$full_image_url = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'full');
							echo '<div class="medium-3 columns"> <a href="' . get_the_permalink() . '" title="' . the_title_attribute('echo=0') . '" class="insightsImage" >';
