*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I'm a dynamic spokesman, accomplished communicator, energetic ambassador for my organization, and former reporter who is seeking his next opportunity. My 16 years in public, media, and government relations includes experience in the energy, insurance, and government sectors gained at a Dow Jones 30 company, mid-sized public and private companies, and federal and local government agencies. I've led the full range of public relations and communications activities: designing and implementing strategic PR plans; crisis communications; serving as company spokesperson to the media; coaching and training senior executives; scripting, shooting and producing videos and podcasts; utilizing social media; writing and placing articles and news releases. Prior to entering the public relations field, I was a journalist and have significant experience in radio and TV, print and the Web. More details and work samples are available on my VisualCV at http://www.visualcv.com/carldombek.

Ideally, I'm seeking a full-time position with a company that provides its products/services while embracing the highest degrees of integrity and social conscience. However, I'm in the fortunate position of also being available for short-term opportunities (either remotely or on-site) as well as free-lance assignments. Please contact me at CarlDombek@sbcglobal.net.

You are an amazing man, Ned. Who else could get me writing silly limericks when I'm up early to do client work????

There once was a writer termed freelance

Who toiled away in her sweatpants.

The ideal was fleeting;

She went to a meeting.

And that was the end of the romance.

What a fun way to start Monday morning! Here's my haiku for the competition. Thanks Ned.

Bee out there!

Leave a sticky trail

So buzzers can pollinate

Using your nectar.

*** From marge Kumaki:

Facebook and Twitter–

I understand both of them.

Others? Not so much.

*** From Tim Delaney:

Hi Ned. Glad to be a part of the JOTW network. Here are a few haikus and

limericks on the subject of social media for your consideration.

———————

HAIKU

Feeling too Linked In?

Keeping up with Facebook, blogs,

I'm all a-Twitter

Social Media

Way too much information

Turn off the PC

Want to know 'bout me?

Join my new Facebook friends list

Then you'll get bored fast

———————

LIMERICK

A new Facebook friend would detail

Her every move without fail

Each turn she'd confess

Like a sad GPS

Made me want to unfriend her and bail

A new PR team was trashed

For helping a golfer who'd crashed

His car late at night

After maybe a fight

It seems all their styles badly clashed

———————

Have a great day.

Upon the layer,

Forever spring eyes.

Some say social media is sweet.

You can share where you are, what you eat.

But exercise caution,

For many are watching.

It turns out you are what you tweet.

*** From Tom Heapes:

*** From Bruce Blake:

Frittered twitter,

Could not facebook,

Never felt LinkedIn.

Your Tube not mine,

feeling way behind.

Gotta get social with my media!

But email or text,

billboard or satellite radio,

is not content still the king?

The medium's the message

and pen and ink are dead,

but can 140 characters really ring?

So tell me what's next,

speed of thought hypertext?

An Apple rfid tag in my head?

Deliver the message,

clear, clean and precise.

Technology changes nothing, and everything:

A necessary evil, on the latest device.

Meg North Taylor

There was a supercilious marketing honcho,

Who was clueless when it came to things Web 2.0.

He thought Facebook was for models,

and Twitter was giggles and twaddles,

But he decreed, “We need that new media stuff to grow.”

*** From Marta Bennett:

Haiku

Twits tweet tellingly

Find friends you never wanted!

My mind bursts open

Hi Ned! Hope you enjoyed the snow.

A well-timed fire drill arrived just after your contest announcement, providing a chance to think in the brisk air. My submission requires one to count each letter of the initialisms:

NIH tweet tweets!

Thanks for the mental health break!

*** Trail Ethics:

In the next issue of YVNS will look at differing view of proper behavior and outdoor etiquette. YVNS wants to hear your perspectives and expectations on trail and camping ethics. What is appropriate behavior? A lot of people go far off the beaten path to do as they please, only to find somebody else there who complains about them. Others make a considerable effort to go far off the road to carry their coolers of beer, then lightening their load considerable by leaving their beer cans where they drank them (okay, maybe throwing them some distance first). Some want to enjoy a peaceful walk on a crisp autumn day only to be shot at by hunters. Some want the solitude of camping in the wilderness only to find themselves parked next to an R/V with floodlights, stereo, and a noisy generator. Some go camping with the family to find themselves camped next to an all-night party with sex, drugs and rock and roll.

We'd like to hear your thoughts on the issue, and examples where you have been in unusual or unacceptable situations, and what you did about them.

For example, what do you think about taking your dog on a long hike or backpacking trek in the back country?
