***  Dots dashed:

Friday marked a turning point in the history of ham radio.  The FCC
announced that knowledge of Morse Code will no longer be required for
any class of license.  (It had been eliminated for the entry-level
license several years ago.)

Having been a ham for 35 years, I have mixed feelings.  Hate to see it
go because it showed that you had a special operating skill (I passed
the 20 word-per-minute test when it was required for the highest class
license in '00, a neat accomplishment after having flunked a
slower-speed code test a couple of times when I first started.)

But as an indicator of one's ability to operate a ham radio station in
the 21st Century, it's relevance was indeed questionable.

Code should survive as an operating mode because it remains a simple,
yet effective way to exchange information.  (Portions of the ham
frequency bands are set aside for code only.)  And as we “professional”
communicators know, simple is sometimes best.

***  Time out!

Ned…

You asked if we'll be using our time off. I always make it a point to
use it. I need the break from the work and pace of work every few
months…so a few days off does a lot for my perspective (and the
maintenance of my house). I think I avoid burn out by doing this. I'll
be interested to see how others think of their vacation days.

Thanks,

***  More Time:

I'm fortunate to work for a company that does not have a “use it or lose
it” policy regarding vacation time. We can carry over up to 22 days each
year. This year I did use most of my accumulated time as we took a
long-planned vacation to Ireland and London this summer before our
oldest son headed off to college this fall. And I'll take three or four
days at the end of the year.

Have a wonderful Christmas season. Looking forward to the new options
for JOTW.

Time off: Yes, I will lose four days …

Maybe the time off loss will balance with time reading JOTW?

***  Trend noted:

Terri Lynn Johnson, ABC, APR, sent along a lead (see job #12) with the
comment, “We are seeing a lot of chiropractors and similar small medical
groups starting these types of full or part-time job openings.”  I asked
her to elaborate:
Hi, Ned,

What I am seeing is that my students who are job hunting are landing
jobs with chiropractors and dentists and even veterinarians. The small
medical practices are hiring their own public relations/marketing people
to build their practices locally in small towns across Illinois. In many
of these towns there are no public relations agencies and the big
agencies out of Chicago, St. Louis and even the smaller Illinois cities
seem to be too expensive or too removed from the small practice. The
students are creating media relations programs, community outreach
programs, and working on making the literature from the offices
consistent. I don't know if this is a nationwide trend or just something
that is happening locally.  The chiropractors seem to be into “wellness”
programs with a lot of outreach to folk who want to avoid problems
rather than those who are experiencing them, thus the need for proactive
public relations.

The students love it because they can be very creative and get to really
set the standard for communications as they are hired on as the expert
in this area.

***  Trane McCloud:

I remember working with him when we were running Operation Ski &
Snowboard (OpSki), a unique civilian/military/ski industry
initiative…. I recall Trane as the consummate professional and more
than willing to always provide more cooperation and assistance then I
asked for. He always went beyond.

Larry Bearfield

(Navy and Marine Corps News provided very effective coverage of OpSki,
doing an entire show from the slopes to show our Sailors and Marines
having a cool time.)

***  Trane McCloud:

Ned,

God bless Trane McCloud.

He was a good Marine. During the brief time that I knew him through your
introduction at the Media Center he was just as you have described. 
your tribute does him justice.

Sadly,
Jack

(This comes from Jack Gallant, a mentor and shipmate, with whom I have
worked over many years in our Navy Public Affairs careers.  “Captain
Jack” is the only Naval Officer I knew who wore the Combat Infantry
badge.)

***  Full military honors:

I attended the funeral and burial of Trane McCloud last week.  He was
posthumously promoted top Lieutenant Colonel, and buried with full
military honors.  The church was over near Mount Vernon (George
Washington definitely slept here).  Turning into the Church of the Good
Shepherd I was greeted, no, assaulted by raucous protesters with
offensive signs.  Then, entering the church, there was a gauntlet of
“bikers” bearing flags.  This, I was to learn, was the Westboro Baptist
Church organization
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church).  Wikipedia
explains, “The group has achieved national notoriety in recent years due
to their picketing of funeral processions for soldiers killed in combat,
which functions as an extension of the Phelps' anti-United States
beliefs.”  The 'bikers” were the Patriot Guard
(
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriot_Guard_Riders).  I was so
disappointed that some chose to take this solemn moment for the family
and Trane's fellow Marines and shipmates to make their own callous
political statement.  America is the home of the free, and free speech
is one of the dearest rights we protect, but it makes you wonder about
those who take this right and use it with such hatred and in such an
inopportune (in my view, not theirs) time.
There were many cars in the procession to Arlington Cemetery.  We passed
Mount Vernon, along the Potomac, through Old Town Alexandria (where we
the procession was unable to stay together), past National Airport and
the Pentagon, and finally into Arlington Cemetery, our blinkers flashing
the entire time.  I followed the blue PT Cruiser in front of me the
entire way.  We were directed to follow several different routes through
the cemetery, back tracking and looping around. 

I've been to burials at Arlington National Cemetery before, but never
one with two full companies of Marines, the Marine Band, a Marine Pipe
Band, as well as the horse-drawn caisson, rifle squad and bugler.
I got out of my car, and the two ladies in the PT Cruiser who were ahead
of me introduced themselves.  They were from Florida, and were in the
prayer group with Trane's mother.

Other funerals were taking place that day at Arlington.  Smaller, less
elaborate.  But just as dignified.  It seems that funerals at Arlington
are like weddings at the Naval Academy Chapel after graduation.  At one
point, while waiting in my car, I saw an Army honor guard and their
horse drawn caisson with black draped coffin come to a stop in a
secluded area.  The sergeant got out four chairs, and handed something
to the soldiers.  They sat on their chairs, and ate lunch in silence.

I admire Marines, and I respect what they do.  The hardest thing a
Marine has to do, I think, is bury one of their own.  On that December
day at Arlington Cemetery I could share this with them, because it is
something best not done alone.

Funerals are not happy affairs.  But a life, no matter how short, is a
thing to celebrate.

I have a friend who turns 30 today, and she said she might just ignore
it, hoping that it will just not happen.  No day is a day to be ignored,
I told her.

***  From Jim Baron:

Ned — I had to work yesterday (Friday), however, I went this morning.
It was nice to be ALONE with Trane. Very peaceful and beautiful morning.

From what I understand, there were several hundred in attendance
yesterday, so I am glad I wasn't in that crowd. It would have been a
little too much, I think.

Anyhow, he's got a nice spot… Washington Monument at 10 o'clock,
Pentagon at 2 o'clock. Temporary marker in place… it's in section 60
(or 66?) — a little hard to find. One of the groundskeepers took me
over as I was wondering around lost. I was way off from where they told
me to go at the welcome center.

One other thing, and it didn't hit me until I was going through
the Mixing Bowl in Springfield on my way home – there were many large
markers there… nearby Trane… entire groups of people (aircrews,
etc.) who went down in aircraft from WW2, Vietnam, Alaska – you name it.
“Aircraft Accident,” I believe was what many of these markers said. As
Trane died in an aircraft accident, I am assuming that this particular
section of Arlington is for this purpose. Me thinks. If not, awfully
coincidental. Next time I am up there, I am going to take a closer look
and ask in the visitor's section.

Take care / Jim

***  Internships:

(See Beth King's internship opportunity below.)  I'm really trying to
get the word out so that I can get a lot of good prospects. I'm also
trying to find a diamond in the rough, because as you know, there's a
great divide between PR people and journalists.

Last year, I lucked out in getting a student who was majoring in
journalism, but was truly interested in learning the PR side in order to
know she was exploring all of her options to the fullest. It was great
having Bridget on my team because she was not only a hard worker who
went the extra steps, but she also was versatile, showing strength in
writing, design, fact checking, research and idea generation. I also
liked that she was able to handle feedback well. I'd love to find
another intern like Bridget.

Thanks!

27.)  Marketing Manager, Spencer Stuart, Chicago, IL

The first is for a marketing manager who would cover several practices
here. The role is very marketing communications-focused, e.g., working
in the areas of program development, intellectual capital/thought
leadership (a big piece), event marketing, direct marketing, a little
bit of media relations, etc.  Of course, it is a consultant-facing role
and involves much “internal client service.”  

In terms of experience level, it  requires a solid experience base
(e.g., maybe around 6-10 years). Our past experience would suggest that
it is quite important that a candidate have experience in the B2B
services world, ideally a business that serves senior executive
audiences (we deal with the C-Suite & Boards a great deal).  The ability
to earn and retain the respect of a bright and articulate consultant
population globally is critical.
Contact: creid@spencerstuart.com.

28.)  Senior Writer, Spencer Stuart, Chicago, IL

The second position is for a senior writer. This person would work with
marketing communications team to write and develop thought leadership
materials and publications including scheduled newsletters, white
papers, studies and collateral material for global firm and industry
sectors.

In terms of experience Spencer Stuart is seeking 5+ years of
professional writing experience. The individual must come from an
environment where he/she is writing every day, preferably for a
sophisticated, senior-level audience. Again, a professional services or
business-to-business experience is preferable. The individual must
possess excellent writing and editing skills as demonstrated by the
ability to effectively cultivate and synthesize thematic ideas. In
addition, he/she should possess excellent oral communication skills and
be adept in communicating with and interviewing consultants, upper-level
management and firm clients.
Contact: creid@spencerstuart.com.

29.)  Marketing Coordinator, Spencer Stuart, Chicago, IL

The third position is for a marketing coordinator. This person would be
responsible for assisting marketing team members with their efforts to
market the firm and its practices through research, development and
distribution of publications and studies, and assistance with events. It
is an excellent entry into a career in professional services marketing
for a recent college graduate. As part of the Spencer Stuart marketing
team, he/she would be exposed to a number of different business
industries and gain experience in a broad range of marketing tactics
while benefiting from the strategic oversight and direction of team
members.
Contact: creid@spencerstuart.com.

Company background
As for Spencer Stuart — it is a private and highly successful executive
search firm (just finished a second consecutive record year for the
Firm, and celebrated our 50th anniversary).  Great culture, which is
very non-hierarchical, highly collegial, not stuffy.  The consultants
are smart and highly personable — many came from management consulting,
and from successful careers in Industry; they sought a less “corporate”
and more entrepreneurial and people-oriented environment.  It's a very
special place (and as some of you already know, quite generous with
holidays and vacation time).

Like most professional services firms, global and organized around
specialized practices: Industry (e.g., Industrial, Life Sciences,
Financial Services, etc.) and Functional (e.g., CMO, CFO, Boards, etc.).
 There are 26 offices in 50 countries around the world — from the US to
Germany to Poland to Brazil to China to India, although only have about
1,300 employees.

development; housing, with a focus on the preservation of affordable
rental housing; juvenile justice reform; and education, with an emerging
interest in how digital media impact learning.

public radio, television, and the production of independent documentary
film. Grants are also made to arts and cultural institutions in the
Chicago area and for special initiatives, currently including
intellectual property rights in a digital environment.

    Ned:
    I worked as a Zamboni driver in Manassas and it is a fun job a times. However, it is not as easy as it looks. If you make ANY mistkae ou can melt holes in the ice or cut it wrong and ruin the ice surface. If you allow the ice clearance device to jam up with meltinmg ice it can freeze up the ENTIRE machine and you get stuck with sending old ice on to the surface AND maybe melting a hole in the ice as you try and clear the device. If you send too much water onto the ice you also create a problem. WHile it looks easy, it is a VERY specialized machine and needs attention while running it. People love to watch it go around the ice, but it is a tricky thing at times.
