US$30/CDN$33 for Internet enrollments). Applications must be *received* at the San Francisco Headquarters office during the month of September to qualify.

*** Survivor:

Hi Ned, fellow virtual potluck attendees and other JOTW readers, we are SO fortunate to have come through Hurricane Ike with only frayed nerves and one bent shingle! Our sturdy brick house in NW Houston stood up to the storm beautifully. It will probably take awhile before we hear from other communicator colleagues around Houston, we pray everyone's OK. Please keep Galveston area residents in your thoughts, parts of the island have been leveled http://www.click2houston.com/slideshow/news/17466546/detail.html and

there are a lot of folks throughout the region whose lives have been

devastated. One way people can help, if they feel so inclined, is with a donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund

http://american.redcross.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ntld_main

We are truly among the lucky ones. No electricity here yet, but we have a gas range so can heat food and water for coffee. With an inverter hooked up to car battery we can run small appliances including laptop. And with mobile broadband I can get online. We have plumbing and safe water supply which is also a blessing. The weather has cooled, humidity's down and there's a nice light breeze, so we have to be thankful for that.

I cooked and baked for two days before the storm, so we have had plenty of food in the coolers. And yes, I did take plates of hurricane cookies around to all the neighbors in the cul-de-sac on Friday before the storm. Neighbors have rallied to share ice, food and encouragement post-storm.

You will be sad to hear our favorite restaurant, Brennan's, at which

IABC/Houston has been meeting for years, was destroyed by a fire during the storm. Firefighters tried valiantly to save it but high winds made it impossible.

And, I don't think anyone will be able to convince me to go camping for awhile!

Forward, into recovery mode, from sunnier Houston,

*** Piracy Report:

Ned,

Am I wrong or has the piracy report become longer lately?

Buddha

(Your observation tracks with mine. You’ll note how many incidents are off Somalia and Yemen. The waters of the Gulf of Aden are virtually ungoverned, and those two countries are haven for criminal activity. The people are so bad off that they will resort to just about anything because nobody stops them.)

*** Communication Resources to Ethiopia:

Ned and the JOTW network are embarking on an effort to obtain

communication resources (books, manuals, CDs, DVDs, to expand the

materials available at the Population Media Center resource center in Ethiopia. PMC is employing the strategic communication method to reach mass audiences to improve the lives of people in the second most populated country in Africa. Dr. Negussie Teferra, former minister of population for Ethiopia, has a PhD in communications, and currently heads up the PMC office in Addis Ababa.

*** Kommunicators in Search of that Special Someone (KISSS):

Tall, attractive SBF, 58, working in an issue-oriented nonprofit as a p.r./news media outreach professional, seeks SM 58-60, in the same field for a long term relationship. Must be over 5'10″, average build (not overweight), politically liberal/progressive, and love children (because I have one!). Shared interests would include music (blues, jazz, reggae, soca, classic R & B/soul, progressive hip-hop), films (feature films and documentaries), fitness, swimming, reading, politics. Sense of humor a must! Religious belief optional. E-mail photo(s) and responses to margaret512@verizon.net.

(What’s soca?)

It's short for “soul calypso”, and it's popular in Trinidad and Tobago. It adds elements of hip-hop and R & B to the basic musical form, and is much faster than calypso of old.

(Who is the celebrity you most closely resemble?)

I don't think I resemble any celebrities. Can't I just look like ME?! Do people post photos on your site? Where IS this site?

Drying socks cause fire on Finnish Navy minelayer

Friday, 01 August 2008 13:56

A fire broke out on Finnish Navy minelayer Pohjanmaa, the largest ship in the navy, in the early hours of Friday morning but was put out before causing much damage.

Lieutenant Commander Jon von Weissenberg, the captain of the ship, confirmed to the Finnish News Agency (STT) on Friday that the cause of the fire was rather mundane; a pair of socks left too close to the radiator to dry.

“Conscripts had left their gear in the wrong place. There was no hardware failure,” Captain von Weissenberg said.

The crew of the vessel were able to put out the fire and the ship is considered fully operational.

*** Ned cannot say no to Barbara Puffer when she looks at him like that:

Barbara Puffer: Hi, Ned… We're down to the last three weeks before our 2008 Heritage Region conference…and I'm stumped about why we have a few seats still left. You know me… I'm never happy with less than a full sellout!! Did you see the lineup?

Ned Lundquist: Can't you just fill the seats with totebags and survey forms?

Barbara Puffer: Our totebag is a nice one this year… honoring the “green” trend. But, no, we're saving those seats for professionals and students to come and participate. We've worked on this for nearly two years, and I don't like ANY unsold inventory. We'd like to maximize our total experience for even bigger and greater sessions in years to come. Next year, we're heading to Cleveland!

Ned Lundquist: Maybe you could sell your extra seats on eBay?

Barbara Puffer: Pay Pal… Cvent… I'm not sure we've got that software in place. But we could take a cashier's check and I think credit cards are still working…at least yesterday they were. Anyway, Ned, we are hoping you'll push the conference — push the fine quality and the great pricing.

Ned Lundquist: Well, I'm not speaking, and Robert Holland is, so what does that say about quality? How cheap is this conference, anyway?

Barbara Puffer: Now, go easy on your friend Robert Holland. Is it a roommate you're pining for?

Ned Lundquist: I never have trouble finding roommates, but I need to check with the wife first. Seriously, what will it cost me…

Barbara Puffer: It is one of the best deals out there and with the economy such as it is, well, even our hotel rooms are an outstanding price. Students $99 (including their meals!!) Member Monday pass is $299. Full reg. for members is $425 and there are discounts for groups. It's your REGION, Ned, for Pete's sakes. Get up here to Hartford!! Turning foliage, a gorgeous river view and some casinos about 40 minutes away! Spin that wheel! Roll those dice!

Ned: Casinos do nothing for me, but foliage… Ooo la la. So, besides Robert Holland, who are some of the presenters?

Barbara Puffer: We kick off with Peter Prichard, president of Newseum, in D.C. near you; and then there's Bob Dilenschneider on Monday morning; Matt Broder of Pitney Bowes at lunch, John Foley Tuesday morning and we wrap with Carol Kinsey Goman PhD Tuesday lunchtime. There are:

24 75-minute sessions

3 in-depth sessions

5 keynote speakers

Our presenters come from across the US and the Region, and include recognized, respected communicators tackling focus areas such as employee communications, technology, skills development and even strategy and management.

Ned: Strategy and management? Anything that can help them on Wall Street?

Barbara Puffer: NYC is our Region too. We'll need to ask those guys. Lee Hornick is coming.

Ned: Our Region, eh? You make a case…but Hartford, hmmm… How will you keep Lee “Baby Shark” Hornick out of the casinos?

Barbara Puffer: Hartford is a convenient, easily accessible location. It's also very affordable and rich with restaurants and attractions. Our venue is the four-star Marriott Hartford Downtown, a hotel that's part of Hartford's new convention center complex alongside the Connecticut River. Great move in this tight economy. And I told Lee to leave the baby shark at home.

Ned Lundquist: The economy such as it is what?

Barbara Puffer: Tight. Stay an extra day and Tom and I will show you around historic Guilford. Come on, Ned. Take a look at www.iabcheritageregion.com/conference.

Ned Lundquist: I love Guilford. That's where my old “award-winning” newspaper, the Dolphin, was published. You recall, the “paper with a porpoise?”

Barbara Puffer: We even have introductory PODCASTS for some of our speakers!!

Ned Lundquist: Podccasts schmodcasts.

Barbara Puffer: aaackk..You and I have been good friends for a long time. I brought my Meximush and homemade clam chowder to your virtual Labor Day bash. What'll you do for me?

Ned Lundquist: Don't look at me like that.

Barbara Puffer: Does Starbucks in the Marriott lobby do it for you?

*** “Another brilliant idea, and I got loads of ‘em” — Commentary by Ned Lundquist:

I bought two pairs of shoes from the Bostonian store at Fair Oaks Mall (after a big lunch at Todai). Did you know that their socks (on sale, six pairs for $24) have a lifetime guarantee? If they wear out, get a hole, lose their stretch, whatever, just bring them in and they’ll replace them.) This got me thinking. You could by one pair, and wear them every day, and wear them out completely, then bring them in and replace them, so you would never need more than one pair of socks. That would free up the cock drawer, and keep you from trying to match socks, or not match them as is the case in my house.

*** From Stephanie Tsai:

1.) California Communications Director, The Wilderness Society (TWS), Los Angeles Metropolitan Area

The Wilderness Society (TWS) (www.wilderness.org), founded in 1935, is a national non-profit conservation organization. The mission of The Wilderness Society is to protect wilderness and inspire Americans to care for our wild places. With more than 300,000 members and supporters, 170 staff, and an annual budget of $26 million, we are the largest and most effective public lands conservation group in the country. We seek a highly creative, skilled, and experienced communications expert to direct a broad range of regional communications efforts for the California/Nevada region. The Communications Director will be a key member of a dynamic, creative, and skilled team working to protect the wild landscapes of California and Nevada.

QUALIFICATIONS

The ideal candidate has at least seven to ten years of experience in advocacy, environmental, and/or political communications work and a proven record of success with media relations and broader communications initiatives. He or she must have outstanding strategic instincts, excellent writing and speaking skills, and an ability to integrate complex scientific, legal and policy analysis into communications campaigns. Knowledge of the legislative process and public policy is helpful; experience with conservation, public lands and/or forestry issues is desirable. Experience working in California and/or with Spanish-language media is preferred. A strong conservation ethic and proven familiarity with the use of new media to move issues is essential. The ability to lead initiatives, juggle competing priorities and work effectively within teams and coalitions is important. The position is fast-paced and challenging, and offers a wealth of opportunity to diversify skills and experience, exercise leadership, and pursue creative ideas. Some travel is required. A Bachelor’s degree is required, preferably in communications, political science, environmental studies, or related fields.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Communications Director is responsible for leading comprehensive communications efforts that advance The Wilderness Society’s national and regional agendas, including:

• Developing and implementing national and regional communications strategies and outreach campaigns;

• Crafting messages and media outreach materials including op-eds, press releases, fact sheets, and briefing packages for print, electronic and broadcast media;

• Creating or overseeing development of other communications materials such as web content, brochures, reports, alerts to members, and paid advertisements;

• Initiating and maintaining excellent working relationships with key media and effectively reaching out to new media audiences;

• Developing new messengers, through outreach and training, to effectively deliver conservation messages from diverse constituencies;

• Producing and managing media events such as radio tours, reporter conference calls, and one-on-one interviews;

• Working closely with local and regional partners on strategic advice, message work, and general grassroots assistance;

• Working to strategically leverage TWS resources, especially our original science and policy analysis;

• Translating scientific concepts into understandable material for a lay audience;

• Coordinating closely with other TWS staff, particularly the nationwide conservation communications team and the director of marketing, to fully integrate regional campaign communications efforts and strategies into nationwide priority campaigns;

• Improving message research, development and discipline;
