*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hello Ned:

My information follows below for the next JOTW.

I appreciate at this opportunity very much. I've been laid off since

Sept. 2 — I'm sure you're hearing a lot of stories about layoff these

days. But every little bit of help makes a big difference.

Marina

What's missing from your Communications and/or Public Relations team?

Marina Mathews!

Marina has her B.A. degree in Communication Arts from Concord College in

Athens, WV and has progressively built her communications, media, public

relations, marketing and web experience through her role in corporate

communications teams as a PR Manager, Staff writer and most recently the

Senior Marketing Manager at 1-800-PACK-RAT, LLC. She has excellent

writing skills and spent seven years at The Herald-Dispatch in

Huntington, W.VA. Marina has consistently assumed a leadership role in

every position she has held. At GEICO she introduced a popular news

feature to the company's intranet site, which remains the most popular

news item of associates. She orchestrated a redesign of the corporate

newsletter — adding color, more photos, and “news you can use” stories

— to the delight of associates. At Coldwell Banker, where she was the

regional public relations manager for DC/MD/VA, Marina spear-headed the

roll out of the company's first-ever intranet site and maintained the

site's content as the editor. She also created a style guide for all web

content. At 1-800-PACK-RAT, she was instrumental in identifying key

partners for an affinity marketing program and implemented a highly

touted e-mail campaign which got the attention of management and key

stakeholders due to its sales success and low investment of company

dollars. She implemented a GIS (geographic information system) that

targeted sales territories and supported the expansion of the

1-800-PACK-RAT,LLC footprint across the US.

Marina is results-driven, creative, even-keeled, a highly functioning

multi-tasker and is willing to roll up her sleeves to get the work done

needed to meet your company's objectives. If you (or someone you know)

have an Communications and/or Public Relations opening at your company,

please contact Marina at (240) 277-3803 or marhwv@aol.com. Also visit

her profile at Linkedin to read recommendations concerning Marina's work

*** Hello Keeper of the Subscription Lists:

I have not received a posting from you in a few weeks and wanted to

remind you that I have a new email address that I would like you to use

from now on. btw, I was receiving your emails at my old email address.

If there is a problem sending me the JOTW pls. contact me at your

earliest convenience so we can sort it out.

These listings are very important to me as I am actively looking for a

job.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

R

(Remind me? I can't change your email address for you. If you put a

new address on an out of office reply, understand that some weeks I

receive a hundred out of office replies in ten minutes. I delete them.

Here's what you need to do to change your JOTW email address. I cannot

do this for you. Send a blank email from your OLD account to

JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then, send a blank email from your NEW

account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.)

*** Where's my JOTW?

Ned,

I have been a long time subscriber to JOTW and Defense JOTW.

I have been sending repeated emails with my new email address and

nothing happened.

Now the access to my former email address is gone and I assume the

newsletters are bouncing back.

Any suggestions for what to do?

Thank you.

Mary

(I checked, and do not see your email on the list. I sent you an

invite. Accept it.

Let me know that you got two of them.)

If replying to your email about this doesn't constitute acceptance of

the invite then I am stymied — don't see an invite…???

(No. To “invite” somebody, I go to my page in Topica and enter your name

in the “Invite Subscribers to Join Your List” box. You then get an

email from Topica.

Maybe your spam filter blocked it, or it is in your junk mail folder.

If sending a blank email to jotw-subscribe@topica.com doesn't work, and

you

are not getting the “invitations,” I don't know what to say.)

Ned,

The key turned out to be looking in my spam folder — I am not so

familiar with the way gmail works yet and had not checked that folder.

I am signed up and things are zooming along.

thank you again!

Mary

(See. I am the most amazing man on the planet.)

THAT was never in any doubt!

M.

*** Regarding last week's issue:

What?? No subject for the JOTW (guess that means no predicate either),

AND no scouting report on Marquette's NCAA Tourney prospects? You need

another cup of java, Ned.

JP

(Good point. I noticed that mistake not as I pushed the send button as

usual, but when it showed up in the in-basket.

As for MU, tough call. They play a 30-4 team. True, USU didn't play

anybody really good, but they didn't lose to anybody much either. And

that bracket is playing in Boise, which is almost like a home game for

Utah State.)

*** JOTW Rock and Roll Trivia Quiz:

The origins of this band moved up to a fusion of hard rock and a

classical symphonic sound, and a new name. The “new” band covered a

song popularized by the original group. And as the new incarnation

gained popularity, it cut the strings from it's formula and picked up a

more mainstream pop sound. The band's first Dick Clark TV appearance

featured a Chuck Berry classic. The group had 20 US top 40 Billboard

hits, and sold more than 100 million albums, but never had a number 1

hit. The creative force behind this band later teamed up with Tom Petty,

Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Ray Orbison.

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit

www.nedsjotw.com. Read previous questions and answers at

http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWRocknRollTriviaQuiz.)

*** Last week's Trivia Quiz:

Joe Walsh…

At first I thought it was Glenn Fry.

You didn't post the answer yet!

JH

(You were right. I thought I had posted the quiz, and dated it to go

active on the site at midnight. But I guess I didn't quite get the job

done.)

*** Midnight man:

At first I thought the gangster might refer to the gangster of love, Mr.

Steve Miller, but the other clues led me to the fabulous Joe Walsh!

“How ya doin” was the standard greeting for my friends and I in the 80s

when Joe Walsh hosted an off the wall Saturday night radio program here

in LA.

“My Meseratti does 185, I lost my license now I don't drive” is one of

my favorite rock and roll lyrics. And sometimes my inspiration when I

can't drive 55.

Where do western forces fit into the picture? With the recent piracy

*** How do I open up the job listing section?

Hi Ned-

Love your newsletter/blog. I was a subscriber until I moved and changed

email addresses. I'm looking for employment and see many wonderful

potential positions on your site. But for the life of me, I cannot

recall how to open up the job listing section of the site to see the

detailed information. What am I missing? (I did sign up again as a

subscriber via Topica and as a blog user)

Thanks so much for your response. And please pardon my ignorance!

*** One Paragraph Pitchers:

Are you hearing positive things from other posters? Has it resulted in

some interest, phone calls, interview for them?

(Yes, but there is no way to generalize. Some people don't put their

best foot forward and wonder why they don't get called. Others get

hired. Some get interest or interviews. But all them get the

satisfaction of at least doing SOMETHING! Sometimes, when you are out

of work, doing something positive for yourself becomes pretty

important.)
