***  JOTW Safety Tip of the Week:

What’s happens when hammer meets hand:

http://www.safetycenter.navy.mil/photo/archive/archive_101-150/photo125.htm

***  Thursday was a great day for baseball.  We had good seats at RFK to see the Nats comes from behind and beat the Braves.  The bullpen actually got a save.  Red Sox took two from Detroit while the Yankees lost.

***  Tom and I spent the weekend at Camp Moss Hollow in Markham, Virginia, where the Order of the Arrow was performing service work.  Tom was the “Ordeal master” for the Old Dominion Chapter Spring Ordeal to induct 48 new members of the Order of the Arrow.  I worked on creating a new overnight campsite.  The Ranger said our work would benefit 600 campers this summer.  Imagine growing up and not catching a frog or a salamander or crayfish, or watching a bluebird or seeing a sky full of stars.  Camp Moss Hollow is operated by Family and Child Services of Washington D.C., and provides a place where an at-risk child can be safe, so that for one week they can be a kid.  I slept out in the open on Friday night.  It rained some, but the stars did come out in the middle of the night.  Before the “Pro Ordeal Ceremony” of Friday, I was standing on the porch looking at the candidates when I felt something between my legs.  It felt like a cat was rubbing up against me.  I looked down to see a raccoon crawling up my pants. 

***  From Marty Welles:

I was sitting at the Cantina Marina bar the other day, here in Washington, DC, with a group of people and someone mentioned they were looking for a communications job.  I referred here to JOTW and she said with great pride – I've been on that list for, like, 5 years.  She's originally from Arizona but now works in DC.  I said, well I know Ned.  That put her in her place.

Marty

***  Get a life…for me:

Hi Ned,

I’m a longtime subscriber to JOTW but I hate reading through all the listings that don’t interest me. In the future, could you please only send me the listings of vice president positions or higher that pay $150,000 a year or more?

Thanks in advance and God bless.

Mike Sorohan

***  From Robert Holland, ABC:

Capt. Lundquist:
 
Mr. Sorohan has a point, but it does not go far enough. Please send me only the listings I'm interested in. And only the funny jokes. I'm sure you know which ones I'm talking about.
 
Robert J Holland, ABC

***  More from Robert:

Regarding this comment, “I would suggest that whoever volunteers for the position agree to do the job as you do it, or not volunteer at all.”
 
Robert says:  And I would suggest that this person volunteer to do it
next time.
 
Some people need to get a life and learn to appreciate the kindness —
and the occasional sarcastic humor — of others.

Regarding this comment aimed at Uma:  “This is a list for PROFESSIONAL
COMMUNICATORS, a group to which you presumably belong.  Are you
seriously communicating this way to THIS audience?  Ned is not
“catering” to anyone's “whim.”  “OMG” is not professional; nor is it a
word.  Just look at the folks who send in submissions – top employers
and executives throughout the country, who  have come to depend on this excellent resource. And perhaps rethink  your response to valid concerns about the new format that you unilaterally selected.  And then hope that you don't find yourself in a position to have to interview with anyone on this list for a job!”

Robert says:  “And this person must not read anything but the ads. Since when has JOTW been a model of decorum?  And that's just the way we like it!”

Robert adds:

OK, now that I'm over my anger at the small but vocal minority of
complainers, I want to volunteer to produce JOTW next time you need
someone to do it. I will require some training. But just let somebody
complain. They think Uma was a smartass???

***  From EE:

Mr. Lundquist:

What you are doing for people in public relations and the communications fields is very helpful.  I know what you do for the job postings and your newsletter is a lot of work, but I wanted to know if there was some way that you can just send the entry level jobs to people like me who just graduated from college separate.  It is discouraging to see all the job postings and not be able to apply for them because us recent graduates have lack of experience or be turned down from the employer because our internships and part time jobs do not cut the standards. 

I would really appreciate any feedback on how I could help you out as well.  It would be a dream of mine to find a public relations job in Pittsburgh, Pa., without being a saleswoman.

Thanks!

Elizabeth

(I am happy to share the jobs that I find out about with anyone and everyone.)

***  From PK:

Ned
I love the newsletter – I'm a freelancer and it gives me a great idea of who is hiring what, etc.
Your vacation replacement was fab
I also appreciate the “can't wait job opportunity”
 
thanks!
Peggy

***  From Steve Slater:

I'm thrilled you posted the comments generated by last week's replacement. (You should also take it as validation your newsletter means so much to so many).

Meanwhile, I recognize it's easy to fuss, not so easy to step up.  I'm happy to volunteer to put this together for your next vacation — if only to read the next installment of Ned and Laura's adventures. Thanks for sharing.

Steven

***  It’s good even when it’s not so good:

Hi Ned,

I appreciate everything you do to get this newsletter out to its many
anxious subscribers, I appreciate the numbers when they are there and
still appreciate the e-mail when they are not, I appreciate the fact
that you can take a vacation and that someone is willing to step in in
your absence so we could still get the weekly e-mail, and I appreciate
the “can't wait ” listings.

Thanks very much!!

Becki

***  From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Ned –
 
I just read—and in some cases, had to re-read—some of the e-mails that were sent to Uma.
 
Having guest-edited JOTW a couple of times, I can tell everyone this much: no one can even BEGIN to imagine how much work it takes to put this together (and I've told you that personally several times).
 
I think I did it a couple of years in a row for 3 or 4 weeks each time… and by God, what I didn't reap financially, I surely earned in karma. If anyone thinks trying to put collate a plain text e-mail, including those last-minute, frantic “OMG I hope you haven’t sent it out is it too late to include this” notes; putting the listings together so that they make sense; and then format the whole thing so that it reads clearly; is easy—well, my friends, think again. I even remember getting a couple of e-mails asking if I'd ever thought of grouping the listings together by state. (I didn't respond to those, for fear I would lose it.)
 
The upside to all this is, of course, that it's a great sign as to how highly JOTW is regarded, and how critical it is to the subscribers' Mondays (and probably some other days).
 
But the fact remains—rather than let a JOTW hiatus take place, Uma stepped into your shoes—so hats off to her!
 
And, quite frankly – I thought the “chill pill” comment was funny. FWIW.
 
Shonali
 
***  From Doug:

Ned,
 
How's it going? I just read through the litany of e-mails. I especially liked the lady, Sarah, who wanted to be removed. Wow.
 
First, where did the spirit of the Internet go?
 
Second, have these guys never had any rain falling in their lives?
 
Third, I am volunteering to do it for you — for free — the next time
you need a sub.  Really. 
 
I'd even put in the index.
 
I really loved your description of Florence. I haven't been there in
twenty years.  My wife and I met in Bologna. 
 
I think they are important to point out.
 
Doug

***  To-ing and Fro-ing:

Ned,

Oh, please, oh please, oh please send the photo of the Holy Cat or magical kitty or whatever you called that adorable cat you described seeing in Italy.  By the way,  Fiesole and, of course, Florence are some of my FAVORITE places anywhere — delighted you all had a chance to mill around there!

And, to the fellow (Hal) who was asking about the video — if you produce one (I have done), keep it to 20 minutes or less.  Saves money and holds your audience.   Plenty of time to tell a story and not too much time for an audience to pay attention.

What a lot of to-ing and fro-ing over Uma!!  My goodness, folks, she was doing us all a favor!!  How presumptuous to dictate the terms of the favor which she was doing for us!!!!

And, obviously, the “regular” version reached me just fine this time so problem over, if there was one.

Thanks,

Mary D.

***  Who loves you?

Ned –

Thank you, the lovely people at Imre Communications, and all your wonderful JOTW readers who participated in the AHA contest. I was really touched by your efforts, and the Target gift card Imre sent me was blown through in one major retail-therapy spree this week.

The girls got clothes, books, and office supplies (for some reason, this is their second favorite section of Target, after clothes) and I got a funky elaborate waffle iron, something I’ve been toying with getting for a while. I lead an exciting life.

BTW, on Mother’s Day weekend, the Washington Council of Governments named me Foster Parent of the Year for Arlington County. Big gala, local political and media luminaries, cool swag … but did I get a Target gift card? A waffle iron? No!

So, thank you all!

Would you consider posting this?  I didn't realize we could post volunteer positions, but I saw one and this is a great opportunity for the right person – people…by the way, I've sent your newsletter to 23 people in the past 7 months since I got my job (not through JOTW, but JOTW was and is great)
 
35.)  Volunteer Communications Positions, LD OnLine, Shirlington, VA

LD OnLine (ldonline.org) is the world’s most-visited website on learning disabilities with over 200,000 unique visitors a year. We want to provide correct information to parents, teachers, and other professionals who are helping people with learning disabilities. We also want to be a place where people with learning disabilities can learn to help themselves.
Although we have a tremendous amount of information, we need volunteers to help us package it so that it is easy for our audience to find. This is a great opportunity for a communicator who is reentering the workforce after an absence and wants work experience. You can come to our office on a regular basis and do a specific job that you can show to a future employer through a link.
It is also a great opportunity if you want to volunteer, but need more flexibility than most volunteer work allows.
Here are some examples of what we need:
Article abstractors: We need communicators who can write compelling copy that summarizes articles and encourages ur readers to click on them.
Section organizers: Several of our web sections need to be subdivided, because they have too many articles that are hard to find.
Web Writers: If you have expertise in learning disabilities and/or education, we have a few opportunities for bylined articles. We also have opportunities for people who like to make complicated professional articles easy to understand. And you can help write some of our web pages.
I am great at writing references and am a lot of fun to work with. This is a project that helps people. Although you may not see the parent who is desparately searching the web, your words may be the key link to a chain that starts their child reading and writing. You might be the one who gives a person with learning disabilities the hope they need to succeed. So please let me know of your existence if you are considering offering your time to help other people.
Write me a detailed letter telling me your strengths and needs. Please study our website and tell me why it appeals to you. Write me at
