*** 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.

*** Surface Warships 2012

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. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

Ned,

I noticed that the employer on this is anonymous. I do not ever recall seeing a non-identified employer on your list before. Without divulging the name are you familiar with the person, business or recruiter that submitted the listing? Your listings are so much better and provide quality leads but anonymous listings are something I expect to see on Monster. This position looks goods but I hate to give out my personal info to a possible scam or entity trying to collect marketing data.

Thanks,
