*** What all the flap about?

Last week I posed this question in DEFCON 1: “Tom and I were cleaning the gutters on the Harwich house when Tom mentioned that he noticed that airliners extend their flaps more on landing than take off. I don’t think I had noticed this, so I thought we could ask the DEFCON 1 network. What the flap about flaps?”

*** Custom shopping bags:

At Doctor Gravity’s Kite Shop, I notice some of the shopping bags have the store’s name handwritten on the bag. “Do you have these custom made in China,” I ask him. “No, the kids do them when they haver a free minute. The just write on the side of the bag with a sharpie.” I knew this of course. I was just being a wise guy. “I go through a thousand bags a week,” he says. “I’ve gone through more than a hundred already today.”

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one another. The JOTW serves 9,931 professional communicators, and growing every week. Please help contribute job opportunities so that this information can be shared with everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by the golden rule. Do something to help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.

How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. As long as it is a communications job. I reserve the right to refuse any submission. Why would I do that? Well, I will not accept anonymous submissions. Also, some jobs are just too long. And some are so totally formatted they try to format everything else and can’t be untangled, so I have no choice but to move on to those jobs that are sent to me in a way as I can just cut them and paste them into the newsletter. Did I mention it was free?

Your cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.
