*** Communicating change: The emotional journey

*** This issue was assembled in part while in Memphis, Tennessee. I had a very interesting visit to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Navy’s Large Cavitation Tunnel. I enjoyed dinner at Itta Bena (just above B.B. King’s restaurant) (http://www.opentable.com/itta-bena-at-bb-kings) at Second Ave. and Beale Street (yes, I had fried green tomatoes). My hotel was conveniently located on the Norfolk Southern rail line so I could listen to the locomotives going by all night.

*** From Jake Poinier:

Hi Ned:

It's that time of year — I'm conducting my annual “Freelance Forecast” industry survey, now in its third campaign. The goal is to cultivate and share information that can help improve clients understand freelancers and vice versa. There are two different versions of the survey:

For clients/businesses who hire freelance writers/editors, designers, photographers, etc., the “Client Perspectives” link is:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ClientForecast2011

For freelancers, the “Freelancer Perspectives” link is:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FreelanceForecast2011

As in past years, all participants receive the results of both surveys, and will be entered into a drawing for a $100 iTunes, OfficeMax or STAPLES gift certificate. The surveys close on January 14, 2011.

If you would be kind enough to blurb it again this year in JOTW, I'd be most appreciative. Your readership has always been very responsive.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!

*** Miss Landmine Cambodia Pageant: Provocative Art or Pejorative 'Project'?

by Masum Momaya

From July 2010, this opinion article weighs in on a beauty pageant held in Cambodia for girls and women who had lost limbs in landmine explosions. The author explores gender concerns on the use of beauty pageants as awareness raising tools, the question of whether publicising disabilities through individuals with disabilities enhances their empowerment or agency, and the sustainability and benefits to the disabled of such awareness raising.
