*** My brother wrote this:

It seems like everyone has an Uncle Bud. Mine slipped the chain last night at his home in eastern Washington after a lengthy bout with lung cancer. He was almost 89. He had a long and good life, but was otherwise as ordinary as any of the rest of us. I mention him only as he was a member of the Greatest Generation who left college when World War II began and enlisted in the Marine Corps. He wound up as a tail gunner in Dauntless dive bombers flying missions out of Henderson Field on Guadalcanal and living in Skunk Hollow. The gunner in the two-seat dive bomber got to fly facing backwards and look back at the explosion the plane just created. He survived all that and went on to fly off carriers by the end of the war. I mention him only because I don’t want to forget this generation as its number gets fewer. See you later, Bud. Semper Fi!

*** Help Payless ShoeSource give away $1.2m in shoes this holiday

It's that time of year again. Over the past two years my company, Collective Brands and its business unit, Payless ShoeSource, have distributed $2.2M in coupons (77,000 pairs a year) for new shoes to children of families in need. The program is open again this year, with a streamlined application process and vastly improved website and Facebook presence.

The application period is from now until November 5th officially (a few additional days unofficially); selected charities will be announced later in November and the coupons will be valid for the months of December through February, 2010/2011.

Please forward this email to any charities you think could apply. All the details for the program can be found at www.paylessgives.com and on the payless gives Facebook page.

Last holiday season a lot of deserving kids got their first pair of new shoes ever through this program. With your help we can reach even more this year.

Thanks, so much.

*** Alternative approval:

Hey Capt.,

I love the last few jobs on the list. They can’t say you don’t have a variety. I hope you are well.

Rob Winchester

*** Freaked out:

Ned —

Oh, my freakin' gawd! I can't believe a) someone (or perhaps several someones) complained about the alternative selections and that b) a full 8% of respondents (at this point) say they're inappropriate.

Two things appear to be missing in these folks: tolerance and a sense of humor. LIGHTEN UP!

Sincerely,

Carl Dombek

*** Write-in vote:

Ned:

My screen doesn't show the voting box, but please count me as a “yes” for continuing to post the alternative selections. They are both funny and informative – as in, what might I do next? BTW over the weekend I saw a great documentary called “Lemonade” produced by a bunch of laid-off ad execs. It is certainly worth a watch. Virtually of of the people in it are doing “alternative jobs” now.

Alternative jobs… are they not a viable alternative to “job-postings-that-never-go-away”? The latter seems to be a particularly troublesome feature of many, many communications jobs that get posted (they end up being posted for months or even years). Either the hiring organization can't make up its mind whether it really NEEDS a new communicator, or that “perfect person” just doesn't exist. Which is, really, true.

Bob from CT

*** Narrow view:

I cannot believe the narrow view some people exhibit when ever anything gets out of the narrow channel in which they live. Get a life people, the world is actually round, there are other opinions besides yours and they also are valid. Get excited about something that actually makes a difference.

About Amicus Therapeutics: Amicus Therapeutics is a late-stage

biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and

commercialization of novel small molecule, orally-administered drugs

known as pharmacological chaperones, for the treatment of a range of

human genetic diseases and diseases of neurodegeneration.

Amicus is committed to developing its pharmacological chaperone

technology and has built a robust clinical and preclinical pipeline of

small molecule, orally-administered agents.

As part of Amicus strategic business plan, the Company is focused in

three key areas:

– The Phase 3 development of its lead program, AT1001 for the treatment

of Fabry disease;

– Advancement of pharmacological chaperones used in combination with

enzyme replacement therapies (ERT) for the treatment of lysosomal

storage diseases; and

– Advancement of its lead pre-clinical programs that utilize its

pharmacological chaperone technology for the treatment of diseases of

neurodegeneration.

Amicus is in Phase 3 clinical development with its flagship product

candidate, AT1001 for the treatment of Fabry disease. In the second

quarter of 2009, Amicus announced that the Company reached agreement

with the FDA on the key protocol design elements of its pivotal trial,

including the use of the surrogate primary endpoint of the change in the

amount of kidney interstitial capillary GL-3, the substrate that

accumulates in the cells of Fabry patients. In addition, the FDA is in

agreement that the Company is eligible to seek Accelerated Approval for

AT1001 according to Subpart H regulations. Amicus began submitting the

Phase 3 protocol to investigational sites worldwide in June 2009 and

patient enrollment and dosing are now underway. The Company expects to

report top-line data from this trial in the second half of 2011.

The advancement of the use of pharmacological chaperones in combination

with enzyme replacement therapies for the treatment of lysosomal storage

diseases and potentially more broadly with other recombinant protein

therapies remains a priority for the Company. Amicus is building an

increasingly strong body of preclinical evidence and will continue to

evaluate options for taking those programs forward with the combination

approaches and the potential to move from pre-clinical to clinical proof

of concept.

Amicus has an advanced pre-clinical program utilizing its

pharmacological chaperone technology for the treatment of Parkinsons

disease with unique molecules, a unique target and what has the

potential to be a very ground breaking approach to treating this

devastating disease.

Amicus has broad, issued intellectual property around the methods, use,

and composition of pharmacological chaperones to treat genetic diseases

and diseases of neurodegeneration. In addition to the currently issued

patents, Amicus has several patent applications pending.

Since its inception in 2002, Amicus has assembled a world-class

leadership team with proven expertise in drug discovery, development and

commercialization. The Company completed an Initial Public Offering in
