D.C. Communications Professional Seeking New Opportunity

My talents in writing, editing, media relations, online, and other

communication realms need a new home in the nation's capital!

I recently completed a one-year position enhancing transportation

now pursue longer-term employment in the world of Washington public policy. My career interests include working for government, a trade association, interest group, or firm. Particularly enjoy transportation and environmental subjects.

My work prior to EPA was as a newspaper reporter, including covering commuting issues for The Boston Globe and the Houston Chronicle. If any JOTWers can help with networking and identifying open positions of interest, please contact me. Thanks for your help!

*** Connection:

Ned,

I've subscribed to JOTW for a long time just to keep up with opportunities in the communications arena. So I was happily surprised to get a “must read” email from a colleague here at Population Action International — an article written by you on climate change that talks about age structures in countries and the effects of the youth bulge. These are issues we are working on here. So I just wanted to share with you what a small world it is. And as you return from Ethiopia, I'm preparing to head to Nairobi for several weeks. Perhaps someday we'll wind up in the same transit lounge somewhere!

*** Apology not needed:

Dear Ned,

Never, ever apologize for a tardy or scant JOTW listing. Your reports of your travels enrich us as we see the world vicariously. You deliver JOTW regularly and robustly. Shame on your ned-work if we can't wait a day or be satisfied with 30 postings instead of 90.

Oh, and thank you for representing Americans so well. My personal goal when I travel is to disprove the “ugly American” stereotype. I salute you!

*** The hole truth:

Ned,

Just as long as you get home safely – your description reminds me of a trip I made from Chicago O'Hare to D.C., except that instead of hitting the engine, the baggage handlers punched a hole in the side of the plane with one of those luggage loader things. I went from a tiny seat in business class to an even tinier seat in the back, scrunched next to a woman who should have had two seats all to herself. But at least we made it.

*** Jim Brumm says it clearly, both orally and in writing:

Ned,

When did “verbal” become a synonym for “oral?”

That's what it was in tonight's CME “Can't Wait” posting, which reads, in part:

Requirements:

– Strong written, verbal and online communications skills.

Aren't written and online communications verbal?

*** Trip Report:

(See www.yourverynextsept.com for photos.)

May 10, 2008 – I bought batteries for my camera this morning from the shop in the hotel. The young lady was listening to Jennifer Lopez. “She is very good.” “J-Lo?” I asked. “”Yes,” she smiled. “J-Lo.”

One of the treats with my breakfast at the Sheraton today was some kind of mango-lemon-mint smoothie. Surprisingly good.

The toilet in the bathroom in my room is right next the phone on the wall, which if you inadvertently bump up next to it will do something that starts making beeping noises. Maybe I was calling the front desk, or Rangoon.

There are cabs all over the city, all blue and white. Some are large vans packed with passengers. Others are small Yugoslavian “peoples car” or Soviet sedans, fashioned upon a long-since obsolete FIAT 124 design that was made by Lada and sold throughout the socialist world.

Speaking of socialism, and communism, my conversations with Ethiopians about the Mengitsu regime were guarded, because politics can lead to trouble if you don’t agree with things. But Ethiopians spoke very negatively about the Derg regime as it was called, and how it resulted in numerous wars and conflicts, suspension of rights, and arrested development of the nation. Even that name, “Derg,” sounds like something evil from Star Trek.

I went to dinner with Brook and Belai. We ate at a traditional Ethiopian place called Hebir Cultural restaurant with music and folklore dancers who were very, very good. Belai invited me to try some mead-like wine called tej, made with honey and hops.

(This is somebody’s home video of Hebir: http://ourboymose.wordpress.com/2008/02/24/ethiopian-tourism-cultural-restaurant/.)

Our waitresses, including Nunu who served us, wore one type of traditional dress, but the woman who brought us our small brazier of incense and out aromatic coffee wore something different. The dancers changed for each number, each time representing a different one of the many tribes of Ethiopia. It reminded me a little bit of the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, except with coffee, and tej. At one point somebody walked right through the performance, and I was puzzled about her costume until I realized she was the toilet lady.

In addition to the fragrant frankincense, our coffee was served with a small herb used to stir in the sugar. It’s called tena adam, says Belai, and every family grows some in the backyard for coffee, and for yogurt. In doing some research online, I see that “The plant Ruta chalepensis, also known as Tena Adam or rue, is a leafy, branched shrublet with an aromatic or pungent odor..

When we left Hebir last night, we were assisted with an umbrella. Could it be raining? No, it was not raining, but it seamed to be doing so if you stood on the steps. In fact, somebody left the water on in an office up above and the water was cascading out of that office’s balcony and down to the sidewalk below. They’ll be in for a surprise when they come to work the next morning.

Mount Entoto is the highest peak overlooking the city of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Mount Entoto is part of the Entoto mountain chain, reaching 3,200 meters above sea level. The air is cool and clean here. It is also a historical place where Menelik II resided and built his palace, when he came from Ankober and founded Addis Ababa. It is considered a sacred location and holds many monasteries. You can visit the church of Saint Mary here, and tour a museum that has many items from the reign of Menelik II.

The mountain is densely covered by eucalyptus trees, from Australia, planted during the reign of Emperor Menelik II partly because they are fast growing; thus it is sometimes referred to as the “lung of Addis Ababa,” I’m told in Wikipoedia. The forest on the mountain is an important source of firewood to the city. Women will hike up the steep road to these forests to gather firewood. It is forbidden to cut the trees, so only “down and dead” material may be harvested. That is a matter of interpretation, as the forests are pretty well picked over because the scarcity of firewood below. We saw three women hiding in the trees when I came to the lookout near the summit. We called to thgem, and they reluctantly came up and talked to us. I shook a woman’s hands and saw how rough they were from her toils. On my way up, as well as on the way back down again I saw streams of women coming down the road which huge loads on their backs. I wondered how much they weighed, and so we stopped by several women who were taking a break along a wall by a switchback in the steep road, and one of them let me strap on the load and try to lift it, something I could barely do. A tourist stopped her car and took pictures of me. She didn’t even pay me anything.

The tomb of Emperor Haile Selassie is revered in Ethiopia

An Orthodox Christian priest at Trinity Church in Addis Ababa stands between the tombs of Emperor Haile Selassie and his wife, Empress Menen of Ethiopia. Haile Selassie was known as the Conquering Lion of Judah, Elect of God, King of Kings of Ethiopia. He was born Lij Tafari Makonnen, and later became a general (Ras), and became Ras Tafari (from whence the Jamaican sect that worships him got its name).

Although I don’t believe I tried this while I was in Ethiopia, I did see it being made by women in the Mercato. It’s called ensete, or 'false banana.' It’s a palm like a banana tree, but the fruit is inedible. The stem and the underground rhizomes produce a starch that is made into a paste similar to yam and taro. It is formed into large clumps then cut to reduce the stringy fibers, then formed up again and cut again. There were women under tables doing this at the market, and many women watching and buying. This was a hot spot.

*** How did I miss this?

Triumph International, a Swiss-based underwear maker, has developed a bra which it claims helps women quit smoking with embedded perfume capsules that react with cigarette smoke making it unpleasant smelling. The capsules contain lavender which has a sedative property as well as jasmine which alters the taste of cigarettes. The bra is also treated with liquid titanium to break down cigarette smoke.

The bra was presented at a trade show in Tokyo but Triumph has not yet decided if it will actually produce the bra. One wonders when Triumph will develop a bra to either attract men or repel them depending on the woman's mood.
