JOTW 45-2009

9 November 2009

“November's sky is chill and drear,

November's leaf is red and sear.”

– Sir Walter Scott

Eight miles high and when you touch down

You’ll find that it’s stranger than known

Signs in the street that say where you’re going

Are somewhere just being their own

Nowhere is there warmth to be found

Among those afraid of losing their ground

Rain gray town known for it’s sound

In places small faces unbound

*** Good morning communications and public affairs rock stars of Pinal County!

Are you familiar with Ned Lundquist's Job of the Week newsletter? I am proud to call Ned a valuable part of my personal and professional network. We were introduced years ago through another personal friend and DC-area communications guru, Jim Mitchell. At the time, JOTW had a few thousand subscriber contributors (more on that in a sec). Today there are more than 11,000. So what's a subscriber contributor? Job of the Week works as a cooperative network — if you hear of an opening, you send a note to Ned with the details or a link to the ad. Each week, Ned assembles these contributions into the Job of the Week newsletter, along with trivia, the weekly Piracy report, professional chatter and humor. (It's okay to lurk but it's much more fun to be a contributor. I actually reconnected with a long lost friend from my east coast ad agency days…just by contributing to JOTW!)

Every Monday, JOTW is waiting in your mailbox. November is New Member Month. JOTW is 100% FREE. You can see it for yourself by clicking on www.nedsjotw.com. To subscribe, send a blank email to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com to join our network of professional communicators.

Have a great week!

O Captain, My Captain…

Just wondering.

Hey, Lundquist! Did you really check this out? It came from LinkedIn.

*** Forecastle?

Dear Ned,

Longtime reader of JOTW, thanks for the weekly info. I read with interest a recent item in the Weekly Piracy Report that included the following item:

“Robbers boarded an anchored container ship from the forecastle and stole ship’s stores before escaping. Local authorities informed.”

I was fascinated, as I’d never heard of a “forecastle” before. Is that anything like a “fo’c’sle?” Or am I thinking of “popsicle?”

Sincerely,

Mike Sorohan, First Class BSA (ret.)

(Forecastle is pronounced focs'le, just like a boatswain's mate is called a bosun. And somebody who poops with the seat cover down is called an upper decker. )

What do they call an officer who can’t finish his shower in two minutes?

(Wirebrushed? How about late for breakfast?)

Ouch. Wouldn't keel-hauling be more humane?

(Mike, that sounds like hazing. I’m signing you up for sensitivity training.)

If the captain authorizes it, then it's not hazing. To me, hazing would be something far worse than keelhauling. Like being handcuffed to a tailhook cable.

Which actually sounds like fun, in theory, provided there's plenty of lubricant and kneepads. Or is that not realistic?

1.) Communications Specialist, Alion Science and Technology, Pentagon, Washington, DC

Job ID: 11048

Responsibilities

In support of CHINFO, Media Monitoring collect current published and broadcast reports by news media and assemble into a compilation (CHINFO New Clips) every Monday through Friday early morning for organizational awareness of news coverage. The specific tasks will include:

A. Collecting of CHINFO Clips:

News clips are primarily collected using Internet news search and Microsoft Word, however some clips will be passed to the contractor in advance via e-mail. Broadcast clips will be sent from internal sources, and will need to be checked for proper operation and transcription. Currently, a single article takes two (2) minutes to clip after it has been found/received. Broadcast clips take approximately four (4) minutes to properly clip.

Round the squares huddled in storms

Some laughing some just shapeless forms

Sidewalk scenes and black limousines

Some living some standing alone

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”

– Elizabeth Lawrence

“The sky is streaked with them

burning hole in black space —

like fireworks, someone says

all friendly in the dark chill

of Newcomb Hollow in November,

friends known only by voices.

We lie on the cold sand and it

embraces us, this beach

where locals never go in summer

and boast of their absence. Now

we lie eyes open to the flowers

of white ice that blaze over us

and seem to imprint directly

on our brains. I feel the earth,

rolling beneath as we face out

into the endlessness we usually

ignore. Past the evanescent

meteors, infinity pulls hard.”

– Marge Piercy, Leonids Over Us
