***  From Sonja Johnson:

Hi Ned –

Maryland Delegate Smigiel is putting forth House Bill 206, which would
give a scholarship to Eagle Scouts and Gold Award winners that are
accepted into Maryland colleges.  There is currently an effort to gather
support from the scouting community to help persuade our legislators
that reaching that level of scouting is an achievement and that
recipients should have every chance possible to attend college. However,
while the Eagle Scout and Gold Award are both significant achievements,
the Camp Fire USA equivalent, the WoHeLo award, is not included and
requires the same amount of work and effort. I would like to encourage
everyone to contact the Maryland delegates to both support the bill and
add the Camp Fire USA WoHeLo award as a credential for the scholarship.
Any questions regarding this bill please contact Jesse Hartline at
Delegate Smigiel's office in Annapolis 410-841-3555.  Additional

Ned –
We have a great event coming up on Thursday-if you can post in JOTW to
let the gang know, I would be VERY grateful!
Thank you!
Don't miss IABC/Washington's February chapter meeting: “The Name Game:
Are You Leading With a Firestarter or a Wet Blanket?”
“What's in a name?” Ask Tate Linden, Principal with Stokefire Consulting
Group, who will join us in February to discuss a non-traditional form of
business communication – the naming of companies and products. Linden
will give us a peek at the keys to successful names and show us a simple
way to classify every name you've ever heard.

He'll also discuss one of the secrets most professionals will never tell
you (and many don't know) – the one thing you need to be sure you do
after you find the perfect name. Even if you're not in the process of
naming or renaming something, you'll find information you can put to use
immediately to improve the reception your existing names receive.

Linden has spent more than a decade honing his craft by leading
marketing and product management teams for Fortune 500 companies before
founding the Stokefire Consulting Group. Located in Springfield, Va.,
Stokefire has helped more than 100 organizations ignite their brands –
from major corporations like the Tropicana hotel chain to the smallest
startups, non-profits, and service firms.

Stokefire's consultants have sparked some of the strongest and most
identifiable brands in the world, including General Electric, ADP,
Martha Stewart Living, and Centex Homes. In addition to stoking the
branding fires, Stokefire also operates one of the world's most
influential and widely-followed blogs on the topic of naming and
branding – Thingnamer.

***  From m d s dreyfus:


While I am grateful for your service, I am upset and deeply alarmed by
your listing of the last job today, #72, which is listed as for the UN
in Ramallah, “Occupied Palestinian territory.” It is not occupied
anything, it is known as the Palestinian Authority, and the property was
never  “Palestine” as that name traditionally, for thousands of years,
refers to Hebrew/Jewish/Judean land, and the group of Arabs known as
“palestinians” were dubbed that only by fiat by a kleptocrat and
terrorist in chief, Yassr Arafat. To call the job origin “Occupied”
etcetera invites political associations that are outright lies and
unpalatably biased on behalf of a mendacious 'narrative' that benefits
from naive recapping by those uninformed by history and fact. That the
position is supposedly for the UN is additional reason to be strictly
neutral, which is the UN mandate, though they fall regrettably far short
of fairmess and neutrality, uncorruption and untaintedness. Perhaps the
malfeasance of the past  rancidly corrupt head, Kofi Annan, will be
corrected by the so-far industrious and reform-minded Ban ki-Moon.
The usage of such a provocative and moot a term means the likelihood of
bigoted overreaction by those damaged in such calculated, incorrect

I would  respectfully request an amended version of that incendiary and
fallacious posting to a more acceptable neutral term: [UN-mediated]
Palestinian Authority. Or simply “the PA.”

Thank you for your immediate attention to this important and critical
issue. This is exceedingly significant, and ought not go unmodified.
Again, thanks for your daily efforts on our aggregate behalfs.

About AARP

AARP is committed to making life better for people as they age. Dr.
Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired educator, founded AARP on the principles
of collective purpose, collective voice and collective purchasing power.
We still champion those principles in a world that is rapidly changing.

The experience of aging has changed a lot, too. People are living
longer, more productive lives.  Medical advances, changes in work and
the workplace, more opportunities for fun, increased community
involvement and many others changes are opening whole new ranges of
possibilities. A world that provides 24/7 global access to information,
products and services is the reality of the 21st century. The
expectations, needs and aspirations of AARP members,
future members and society will continue changing at an amazing pace.

In the face of these changing realities, we constantly find new ways to
engage and deliver to our members what they want, need and expect — 
financial well being, health, contribution to society, a role in their
community and ways to fully enjoy their lives. We lead by taking a
stand, getting things done, seeing ahead and standing up for the truth.
We care about our more than 37 million members, which is why they come
to us for many different things.

AARP Services, Inc. leads the way in the marketplace by being a force in
influencing companies to offer new and better choices for AARP members.

We meet the demands of our members and the marketplace, and we are proud
of what we do. Our members tell us that they rely on our endorsed
providers to provide high quality products and services they can trust.
We make the marketplace better and will continue raising marketplace
standards to meet the changing needs of our members. By providing high
quality alternatives through our endorsed products- some of which cannot
be found elsewhere in the marketplace — AARP helps members live the way
they want to live.

AARP, a membership organization, is driven by our mission — making a
difference — not by making a profit.  There is no conflict between our
endorsed provider's products and our advocacy– which are always
separate —  with policy always first. Our endorsed provider's products
and services are consistent with our public policy positions. We make
available the products our members need and we advocate for the things
that will make their lives better.

For example:

– We work to influence the marketplace. AARP Financial was created to
give investors a fair shake through a simple investment program that
provides information in plain English has low fees, and a $100 minimum
investment to start. With their products, Americans have the opportunity
to address their financial futures. AARP Financial is working to help
people invest for their retirement.

-We lead change the marketplace. Over the past 50 years, AARP has
transformed the health insurance market through its endorsed products. 
Once we were the only choice for older Americans when it came to health
insurance; today they have many choices.

– We serve member needs. The marketplace is not perfect, which is why we
still make available health insurance that cannot be cancelled
regardless of age. This often serves those who may have no other option.

As we face the challenges of a new century, we provide solutions that
reflect the changing realities of our members and the world. All of our
assets whether our advocacy, information, or endorsed products and
services– are used to serve our members. Regardless of where they are
on life's continuum, no matter their race, age or gender, we strive to
help our members have the collective energy, commitment, voice and power
to make life better for themselves, their family and everyone. Together
we can do what no one person can do alone.
