*** Drug free work place:

I have some questions for the network about “Drug Free Workplaces” and companies that say you must agree to urinalysis drug testing. I’ve worked for several of those companies. The Navy was very consistent, and fair about testing. The civilian companies I’ve worked for that said that testing was required have never tested, nor do I know anyone who has ever been tested. Can anyone shed any light on drug testing in your companies?

*** Shades of green?

Ned,

(Not at all. Both flights up to and back from the OPLATs were delightful two hour hops covering the 230 miles from Bahrain to HMAS Stuart on station.

Hello Ned,

Been a subscriber to the list for a long time. Keep 'em coming! I was wondering if you knew of any groups/job listing sites and/or people I could contact regarding jobs in the network operations, quality management/ network analysis field. My father has about 20 years experience but, as you can imagine, is having an uphill battle in his job search. I greatly appreciate your time and any help you are able to give.

Very best,

*** Trip Report:

During my recent trip to the Middle East and Africa I was remotely exposed to some of the unrest in the region.

This is why my 10 May Lufthansa flight from Addis Ababa to Frankfurt wanted to avoid a scheduled stop in Khartoum:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7394033.stm

http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/51DF8D2C-009B-4262-BCC2-C59F07219ABB.htm

We took off a day later, and stopped in Cairo, instead.

*** Djibouti:

Djibouti is largely undeveloped. No doubt because Djibouti doesn’t have oil, gas or minerals, or trees or fresh water. It has lots of parched desert, and it has location, at the “Horn of Africa.” It’s chief occupation is nomadic animal herding, but today more than two thirds of the countries 700,000 people live in urban areas, which means they live in the capital city of Djibouti. Djibouti is a small nation, about the same size as Massachusetts, but strategically placed across the Gulf of Aden from Yemen at the Bab el Mandeb which is the straits that lead to the Red Sea. France once ruled this place as a coly, French Somaliland, and then later as a territory, French Territory of the Afars and the Issas. When the population opted for independence, the Issas opted to be part of Somalia, and the Afars stayed tied with the French. The French still have a military presence here. When my plane arrived from Addis Ababa I watched French Mirage fighter doing touch-and-gos.

While nearby Yemen, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia have “issues,” Djibouti seems remarkably calm, so much so that refugees from those places come here for respite. One senior Djiboutian naval officer told me that Djibouti is like the eye of a cycle. In the middle, nothing is moving, but all around is chaos.” But even enigmatic neighbor Eritrea wants some of Djibouti.

http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/05/24/africa/25djibouti.php

http://www.strategypage.com/qnd/ethiopi/articles/20080515.aspx

I went to the Djiboutian Institute with some American from Camp Lemonier to join with the students there who take night classes in English. I though this would be a good way to get to know and understand Djibouti and it’s people. But what I found was that many of the students from Eritrea, or Sudan, or Somalia- all places where there has been much strife. One student said “I am from Ogaden.” I knew that Ogaden was part of Ethiopia, so I said, “You mean Ethiopia,” he looked at me, hard, and said, “No, Ogaden.”

(Here are some stories about the English Discussion Groups in Djibouti:

*** Sharing is caring:

Hi, Ed.

A quick question – do you mind if people send your JOTW listings out

to other groups? I ask because someone just did that on one of my

lists, and I wanted to make sure it's OK with you. If it isn't, I'll

send a gentle note to that list to that effect. JOTW is a wonderful

service, and I don't want anyone to abuse it.

All the best,

Ruth (fellow IABC/DC member)

(Sure you can share. That's what “nedworking” is all about.)

Good to know – just didn't want people taking advantage of your

generosity inappropriately.

All the best,

Ruth

*** Memorial Day, from Larry Bearfield and Robin Emerson at Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle, Massachusetts, the official country store of the JOTW network. Stop in and tell Robin or Larry you are a member of the JOTW network and enjoy a free cup of coffee:

Memorial Day in Carlisle. It's small-town America at its best. And our flags are out in remembrance.

This coming Monday is Memorial Day. When you're out and about this next week, like say, stopping by for some fresh-baked pastries or a scrumptious sandwich at the store, notice that many of the graves in the 1784 Central Burying Ground across the street from Ferns as well as Green Cemetery on Bedford Road are adorned with a small American flag to recognize and honor our war veterans. These are put there by a small, quiet group of volunteers who take on the task every year. With a detailed list of Town Veterans in hand and fistfuls of flags, they pass through the gates of our peaceful cemeteries and go about the task of marking the graves in an orderly, respectful manner taking especial pains to ensure that no vet is forgotten.

And while these kind folks give up a few hours every year to do this they don't do it for words of praise or recognition… They'll tell you it's the right thing to do or as one said “we live our lives because of our veterans”… However, we believe that Doug & Mary Beth Stevenson and Mrs. Barbara Culkins deserve our thanks for their many, many years of quiet service. Indeed, Mary Beth recalls that her second date with Doug in 1993 was to go to the cemetery to place the flags (ask him or her to tell you the story). Here she is, 15 years later, now with triplets who also help out, and once again, they will place over 250 flags, of which 7 honor women, at Green Cemetery. Incidentally, Doug, who we all know is on our Board of Selectmen, has been placing the flags religiously for over 20 years. The task was passed on to him by Mr. Ivan Yeaton formerly of Judy Farm Road. And Barbara Daisy-Culkins remembers her time as a little girl growing up in the center of town above her parent's store (now Ferns – where she still lives and works on Sunday afternoons) and being captivated by the annual event. She takes on the annual marking of the dozen+ veteran graves in the old 1784 Central Burying Ground where the names on the stones are reminders of our town's heritage. You'll surely find names that match our road and conservation land names. Each year she still makes sure her that her social calendar doesn't interfere with her flag-placing duties.

Three people (with three young kids). None are veterans. Yet all have a strong sense of duty and obligation. And Memorial Day observances in Carlisle will once again carry on in its traditional small-town way.

None of this is about celebrating or glorifying war. Nor is any of this a statement about our current policies. It's everything about stopping our lives for a time to thank others. How much more simple can it get?

Robin & Larry

The Science of Communications: Connecting Researchers & Practitioners

The National Association of Government Communicators presents a workshop

on risk & crisis communications. Monday, June 2, 2008, 8:00am-4:30pm;

Reagan International Conference Center, Horizon Ballroom, Washington,

DC. www.nagconline.org

What happens in someone's mind when they have to evacuate a burning

building, are told to shelter in place while authorities check out a

suspicious package, or hear rumor of a release of dangerous chemicals or

biological agents? What triggers the 'fight or flight' response? What

do they listen to in an emergency situation? The National Association of

Government Communicators, with technical support from the U.S.

Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate, is

offering a full-day workshop to bring researchers and practitioners

together to discuss focus on the science behind people's reactions, how

communicators can evaluate the effectiveness of what they say and how

they say it in crisis situations, and how to reach people who may be in

panic mode. Visit www.nagconline.org for

program details and to register.
