*** One Paragraph Pitch:

From Darcy Silvers, APR, ABC

Philadelphia suburbs

I’m a Philly-area senior copywriter whose career began as an editor at The Orlando Sentinel. I still get an adrenaline rush from deadline pressure. I “defected” to the advertising world, working for Orlando's Robinson, Yesawich & Pepperdine (the largest tourism/resort agency in the U.S.) and for suburban Philly's Thomas J. Paul marketing services, where I wrote copy for Nabisco, M&M/Mars, Warner Lambert, Johnson & Johnson and more. My passion is PR, and I am accredited via the Public Relations Society of America and the International Association of Business Communicators.

In the past decade my focus has been on ecommerce – SEO copy, blogs, email campaigns, banner ads and online PR product placement. While other writers focus on a niche, I pride myself on the diversity of my portfolio, which you can see at http://www.thehiredhandink.com.

*** Causing a stir:

Ned,

Our new team lead for collecting school supply donations is Captain Angel Casiano (address below). As our Brit friends are beginning to rotate out a group of U.S. service members are taking the lead on the school outreach program. They conducted a supply drop with many of the supplies we still had on hold from the folks who receive your JOTW e-mail so as of now it's all been delivered.

I can't begin to thank you enough for all of the support and we are very grateful to the folks who took some time to mail supplies (and creamer) our way. We're good on creamer but we're still taking donations for the schools; notebooks, crayons, coloring books, pens and pencils. I've attached a letter from the chairperson and the link to some photos from our most recent visit is below.

*** Got a personal problem?

Hey, who doesn’t.

That’s why JOTW has in the past offered the advice of our own Pontoof, the pontificator.

Well, it appears that Pontoof is once again reaching out to sad souls deeply immersed into delicate situations that require a discrete and sensitive analysis and response.

If you are tired, angry, desperate, lonely, loved, wanting love, remorseful, resourceful or you just need a sounding board, you've come to the right place. Here you can (and will) double your sorrows, halve your joys. Bring all problems to Pontoof, an imaginary friend in these times of imagined woes.

Find out your future. Erase your self-doubt! Let Pontoof do the doubting for you! Send your problems of an extremely sensitive and personal nature and he will send to Pontoof, who will ponder your predicament and then pose a superlative solution. Use an alias. Or we’ll assign an anonymous identity for you. Ned is very discrete, and if Pontoof doesn’t know who you really are, then it’s all good. Pontoof’s advice will be shared in the JOTW newsletter.

Pontoof's Podium of Pontification appears in Ned's Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators. You may subscribe for free by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

Like JOTW and the other really good things in life, Pontoof’s pointed advice is free.

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces.
