“In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their language.” – Mark Twain

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators. JOTW is a cooperative service that relies on the contributions of its members, like you, to share the wealth and “free the jobs!”

*** Ned and his family are on leave in the City of Lights – Paris, France – this week. I have commandeered the airwaves as your guest host for the week.

Who am I? Well, that is a question I ask myself all the time and I have yet to get a straight answer. If you really want to know, visit my business’s website, www.hollandcomm.com. My site is also the host of the JOTW FAQs, so check them out while you’re there (follow “Our Network” on the left navigation rail).

JOTW is dedicated to the positive and unanticipated consequences of

“nedworking.”

How does it work? First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent. If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to Ned at

(lundquist989@cs.com), and he'll share it with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. All free. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. It's free for them, too.

Ned never gives out, rents, or sells his list, and neither does Topica.

*** Daylight Saving Time began this weekend. Did you remember to set your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night? If not, you’re reading this issue of JOTW one hour later than you should.

*** Ned does it, so why can’t I?

Shamelessly promote himself and his IABC chapter, that is. I’ll be the guest speaker at the April 3 meeting of IABC/Richmond, my home chapter. “Making Sense of New Social Media” will introduce you to the business applications of online communities. Find out which companies are embracing new social media and how they’re doing it. Discover whether or not your organization should get on board with this trend that’s changing the rules of communication. The chapter meets at the offices of LandAmerica, 5600 Cox Road, Glen Allen, VA, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Visit www.iabcrichmond.com for more information.

*** Remain seated at all times

This week, in honor of Ned’s Paris vacation, we feature quotations about Paris. Orville Wright said, “No flying machine will ever fly from New York to Paris … [because] no known motor can run at the requisite speed for four days without stopping.” This bodes ill for Ned’s journey.

*** Mystery solved

Hi Ned,

I have to respond to your quote:

“The only mystery in life is why the kamikaze pilots wore helmets”

– Al McGuire

My husband is a pilot and here’s his response:

That is no mystery, they were still listening to their wingman and flight commander (for target instructions), and their headsets were part of their helmets!

So there you have it and you also got my attention!

Have fun in Paris,

Sheila Taylor, ABC

(Roger. Tell your pilot hubby he's no fun. Ned. Out.)

*** Making a world of difference in Ethiopia:

Ned and the JOTW network are collecting communication resources (books, manuals, CDs, DVDs) to expand the materials available at the Population Media Center resource center in Ethiopia. PMC is using strategic communication to reach mass audiences to improve the lives of people in the second most populated country in Africa. Dr. Negussie Teferra was the minister of population for Ethiopia and has a PhD in communications. He was a member of Ned’s panel discussing the use of serial dramas, soap operas and telenovelas in developing countries to make positive changes in social behavior. His article on the subject is in this month’s Communication World magazine. Ned’s article on the subject was published in the September/October 2004 issue of CW.

PMC is active in Ethiopia, among other countries:

http://www.populationmedia.org/programs/ethiopia.html

We all have an opportunity to donate current items in good condition that we ourselves would be proud to have in our home or office library. Anyone who has written books or manuals should donate a copy and autograph it to the communicators in Ethiopia.

To help things along, Bill Ryerson of PMC’s offices in the U.S. offered to be the collection point. Shipping to Vermont, Bill says, will be less costly and will lessen the possibility of customs problems. Use either the P.O. Box or street address below.

*** Blog this!

Hi, Robert.

I was asked to be one of the bloggers for the IABC Communication Commons, focusing on employee communication. As far as I can tell, this blog is open to nonmembers. The Commons doesn’t seem to get much traffic, which I’d like to change, because the point is to engage people in dialogue. I am especially looking for comments to the one I posted most recently, in which I ask for suggestions about the teaching of business writing, which I do for the University of Maryland University College (UMUC). Would you ask the JOTW audience to visit the blog and add their comments?

Thanks very much.

*** Pre-travel advice to Ned from Susan Burnell, APR:

Hi Ned,

Before you head out of town you might want to take the following security measures…from an e-mail that's been circulating:

Subject: HOME SECURITY SYSTEM

HOW TO INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM IN THE SOUTH

1. Go to a second-hand store and buy a pair of men's used size 14-16 work boots.

2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns & Ammo Magazine.

3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.

4. Leave a note on your door that reads:

Hey Bubba,

Big Jim, Duke, Slim, & I went for more ammunition. Back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls – they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part in it but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside.

Cooter

Enjoy Paris,

Susan

*** Weekly Piracy Report:

Before he left for Paris, Ned passed along the Weekly Piracy Report. It’s a good thing, too, because I was prepared to report on the Pittsburgh Pirates’ spring training, Johnny Depp’s newest movie role and the implications of illegally downloading songs to MP3s.

02.03.2008: 0237 UTC: 09:40.2N – 057:38.9E, 390 nm off Somalian coast.

An orange painted dhow with white stanchions, while drifting, called up a vessel five nautical miles away requesting them to stop because they had no food or water and they had 25 persons onboard. As the vessel altered course, the master noticed that the dhow had increased speed and was heading directly for them. Seeing this, the master suspected an attempted attack, altered course, and headed away form the dhow. The vessel and the dhow were both doing around 7 knots and after around 3.5 hours, the dhow altered towards Socotra Island. The same dhow returned to its original position and was later heard calling another vessel to stop.

02.03.2008: 0045 LT: Nacala Bay anchorage, Mozambique.

Robbers in three boats boarded a tanker at anchor. They were in the process of lowering ship’s stores when duty crew spotted the robbers. Alarm raised and crew mustered. Robbers jumped overboard and escaped. Port control informed.

27.02.2008: 1100 LT: 13:05.6N-057:49.44E: 197nm East of Socotra Island.

A suspicious boat approached a yacht, sailing with two other yachts. The yachts downed their sails and used their engines to increase speed. The suspicious boat with about 16 people on board approached closer and offered fish in exchange for cigarettes but the yacht crew asked them to move away. The boat chased the yachts for about 15 minutes before moving away
