“An age is called Dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.”

First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent. How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network.

*** The PMC Media Resources Library in Addis Ababa:

You may recall that many JOTW Ned-workers sent books and other resource material to the Population Media Center in Vermont to be forwarded to the PMC Media Resource Center in Addis Ababa.

Hi Ned,

Good news. While I was in Ethiopia last month, Negussie and I went to DHL and asked for a donation of shipping. They responded with an offer of 40% off, which we accepted, and all 14 boxes of books were shipped a week later to Ethiopia and are now in our library.

Best wishes,

Bill

*** Piracy figures for 2009 surpass those for previous year

Wednesday, 23 September 2009

The number of piratical incidents reported so far in 2009 has surpassed the total number reported in 2008, according to the ICC International Maritime Bureau (IMB). Over half the worldwide attacks are attributed to Somalia pirates according to IMB.

(Ned notes: Today's piracy report posted below also shows a number of incidents in locations other than the Gulf of Aden, such as India, Indonesia and Nigeria.

*** From Deborah Corey:

Hey Edward,

I was wondering if you knew-does the IABC offer association health insurance? I am looking for something to take the place of the COBRA I have been using since the Washington Times laid off my department.

-Deborah

(I believe that IABC offers some insurance options for self-employed communicators. Let me put you in touch with our friends at IABC to see who might be able to answer your question. In the meantime, stay healthy!)

Hi Deborah,

We had an arrangement at one time with an insurance provider that supposedly provided a discount to our members, but it really wasn’t any better than pursuing individual insurance (and the service was bad), so we discontinued the partnership. In particular, you could still be excluded for pre-existing conditions and rates were comparable to those on the open market.

IABC would love to provide an insurance option that is similar to what you get when you work for a company: no exclusions and group rates. Unfortunately those types of products are no longer available to associations. At least, we haven’t been able to uncover one.

I hope that you find something that meets your needs. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

*** I was going though some old newsletter. Here’s something interesting (to me) from JOTW 34-2002 Add 1:

My family is back from the west coast. I spent three weeks picking up all the Legos from around my desk and putting them in a big bin and putting them over on the toy box. The box is already back next to my desk and partially emptied out. My son also wanted to install a new computer game, but there wasn’t enough memory, so he deleted a bunch of stuff, like everything from “My Documents.” Needless to say, as a writer and a presenter, I have lost a lot of valuable Word documents and PowerPoint presentations and some other stuff, too. I had most of this newsletter put together, so I have to reconstruct it all. If I lost something you sent for inclusion I apologize. You can try sending it again.
