*** From Dan Carpenter:

Ned, loved Alice's response and second her motion/emotion. danno

*** What makes a great internship:

Ned,

Here is my response to what makes a good internship.

Thanks,

Jacquie Leeker

There is no definite answer to the question of “What makes a good

internship?”, but I would enjoy sharing some of the things that have

worked very well for me as an intern. I can't say enough good things

about the internship that I have experienced at MPRI in the Strategic

Communications Division. This internship has proven to be a very

positive symbiotic relationship for both me and my employer. MPRI

interns are not thought of as someone who is there just to make copies

or get coffee. Instead, we are treated as complete equals by the

wonderful team of professionals that work here. Since I have been at

MPRI, I have gained so much knowledge about public affairs and the “real world”. I've learned how to manage my time, the culture of working in an office and the politics that exist. Most importantly, I've gained invaluable tips on how to conduct successful interviews, network with others that are in my career field, and how to create a professional resume.

MPRI realizes the true talent and the value that an intern can offer.

They understand that interns have the ability to think “outside of the

box”. Interns are usually enthusiastic and energetic feeling that we

can take on any task at hand. My supervisor is a strong believer that

student interns bring what he calls “the currency of the classroom” into the workplace. This can be anything from new technology, to theories and case studies.

In closing, employers that are inspired to have an internship program,

should realize that they, in essence, will become a mentor. If they

invest the time it takes to help teach and guide their interns, the

return on their investment will be priceless. They could have

emissaries promoting their company, just like MPRI's Strategic

Communications Division's has with me and the 26 previous interns.

Overall with a little cooperation, inclusion, education, sense of

openness, and proper guidance from a mentor, any internship can be

rewarding and beneficial to both the intern and employer.

*** Best Internships:

Excellency,

My summer internship in the office of a Houston criminal lawyer, at the age of 16, launched my writing career. I was hired as a runner for minimum wage, and my job was to take bail bonds to the city and county jails, walk the new “clients” back to the office, and write their statements for the lawyer’s review. Without the benefit of all 5-Ws to guide me, the only question I could ask during the interview was, “Tell me, what happened?”

Invariably, every criminal defendant’s statement began, “I wasn’t doing nothing,” so much so that I once thought of making a rubber stamp of that initial comment to speed up the process. But, as I was writing down their ramblings, they would eventually reveal the crimes they committed, sometimes in great detail, as well as the actions or activities that led to their arrest and confinement. The statements ranged from comic to tragic, yet the common theme in nearly every one was an overall lack of intellect and planning. The lesson from that experience is that everyone has a story to tell if you simply ask them, “What happened?,” and show enough interest to write it down.

Years later, as a police reporter in Austin, I learned from a homicide detective that the best way to keep people talking is to only say “uh-huh.” The detective said it works better than a rubber hose to get information out of people. And this is a valuable interview tool that I use to this day.

Bill Ainsworth

Houston, TX

(Are you suggesting that with a little more smart planning some of these perps might be more successful?)

Exactly.

(What tips do you have for would-be crooks?)

The Japanese have a saying, “It takes 10 years to become a (good) thief.” FDR once said, “A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car. But, if he has a university education, he can steal the whole railroad.” And finally, a U.S. Attorney General once told a high school audience that the average bank robber gets around $3,000 and 10 years in prison, while the average bank embezzler gets around $200,000 and is rarely prosecuted.

So, my tip to would-be crooks is to stay in school.

(You make this advice upon your own foundation of a solid education?)

Yes, but like my hero, Mr. Nixon, I am not a crook.

*** Moxie:

I was up in Maine a couple of years ago with my hunka (pron. hoon-KA) brothers from the old Taskiagi Lodge (part of Area 1A because Sections are for Grapefruits), Clay Campbell and Bruce Ward… Clay lives out in Montrose, Colorado now and decided he wanted to bring a case of Moxie back home. I'd never tried it so he cracked open a bottle and handed it to me. I took a swig and immediately spit it out. I've never had a more fowl-tasting drink in my entire life. “Acquired taste”? I can't for the life of me ever imagine acquiring a taste for the medicinal, weasel piss that they call a soft drink. Clay's still my best friend but I now question his judgement.

Barbara obviously has good taste.

Larry Bearfield

(Larry also adds: over the weekend Robin met someone at the store who was apparently in town visiting a friend…. he said that he gets JOTW and asked about his free coffee which Robin was glad to provide him…. I wish she'd gotten his name!)

Ned comments: So, if you were recently at Ferns Country Store in Carlisle and invoked your JOTW “free cup of coffee” privilege, please step up and give us a full report.

(Ned also wants to know…anyone else ever tried Moxie?)

*** Paul Hart notes the source of last week’s JOTW quotes:

Always glad to see you using quotes from the founder of Scouting.

Paul Hart

San Antonio

(Our 100th year!)

Factoid: The oldest Scout troop in the United States was founded in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, in 1909 — a year before the U.S. Scouting organization was formally organized. The local Episcopal church had a new priest from England who modeled the unit on what he had seen in England while working with Lord Baden-Powell. The unit's original charter was issued by the British Scouts. As Troop 33, it is still in existence and a part of the Osage Hills District of Oklahoma's Cherokee Area Council, where my adult years in Scouting began.

(I had some great stuff from Mike L’Abbe at the World Jamboree but it fell out of my inbox.)

*** Water on a grease fire:

*** Staying with the network:

Dear Ned

Please remove my “pitch” from the JOTW cue. Thanks to networking, I have received two job offers from two excellent companies. However, I intend to remain subscribed to both DiD and JOTW newsletter, because I hope to be able to help someone else out someday.

Thanks for all the great work you do

*** From Heather Murphy:

Ned,

Here are a few jobs for your next edition. I can personally testify that this first one is a challenge! I’ve been manning this station for almost eight years and four election cycles. The vacancy occurs because I recently accepted the post of Communications Director for Pinal County. Pinal County is about the size of the Connecticut and lies between the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas. It’s experiencing extremely rapid growth and I’m thrilled that I will be a part of defining its image and guiding its future.

I am aware of the optional, highly encouraged policy. Alas, I do not have anything with the ACC seal to offer. I will have to get creative and send you something very or perhaps a matted photograph. Do you have any favorite subjects? Lighthouses? Wildlife? Landscapes? Florals?

*** From Phillip Raskin in Korea:

Hey Ned — web writing/management job for our many DC sports fans. Encouraging that they want specific journalism experience in addition to the usual technology alphabet soup (HTML, DNS, ABC, 123). As an additional bonus, I'd be happy to help the JOTW subscriber who eventually nets the job write the inevitable stories about my hometown Miami Heat whupping the Wizards time and time again. I would also advise that any interviewee avoid mentioning “the Curse of Les Boulez” during the initial meeting.

Anyway, hope things DC are going well (you must have had some sort of camping vacation by this point in the summer). Here in Seoul it's officially “rainy season,” so days are sticky and nasty and interspersed with thunderstorms. On the plus side, Cebu, Borokai, Thailand and Bali are all pretty quick flights from here.

Take care and talk soon,

Phillip

05.08.2007: 0119 LT: Ango-Ango, Matadi port, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Armed robbers, in two canoes, boarded a refrigerated cargo ship at anchor. They threatened the deck watchman with a knife and chased him; luckily, the watchman managed to escape and raised the alarm. Meanwhile other robbers stole ship’s stores. On seeing the alerted crew, the robbers jumped overboard and escaped.

05.08.2007: 0225 UTC: 06:18.6N – 003:23.9E, Lagos anchorage, Nigeria.

A boat with six robbers approached a tanker at anchor from the stern. The watchman on duty spotted the robbers trying to board the ship by hooking a bamboo pole onto the ships rail. He informed the bridge. The alarm was raised and the whistle sounded. The robbers aborted the attempt and escaped. An investigation carried out later found nothing stolen.

11.08.2007: 1200 UTC: 01:13N – 052:38E, Somalia.

Pirates, in a trawler, attempted to attack a refrigerated cargo ship underway. The ship altered course and the trawler altered onto a collision course. The ship took evasive manoeuvres, increased speed and attempted to contact the trawler on VHF, but without any response. After following the ship for one hour, the pirates aborted the attempt and moved away.

07.08.2007: 1910 UTC: Posn: 01:24S – 050:45E, Somalia.

A suspicious boat crossed the bow of the ship underway from stbd to port. There was no data found in the AIS. The boat altered course and headed directly for the ship. The ship increased speed. Another suspicious boat approached on the port bow. The boat was chasing the ship. After more than 1 hour, the suspicious boat reduced speed and stopped the chase.
