Good afternoon CAPT Lundquist,
Can you reveal your source for one of JOTW’s most entertaining features, the weekly piracy report? I sometimes cut-and-paste it in an email for my father and uncle, a couple of former merchant mariners who’ve worked in shipping ever since…and it seems more complete than anything they regularly see.
If you cannot, it’s no problem…I’ll just continue to pass on what I receive from your outstanding mailing.
Thank you, DH
(I gather these reports from the International Piracy Reporting Centre in Kuala Lumpur, which posts them on the International Maritime Bureau’s website (IMB is part of the International Chamber of Commerce.)
Thank you, sir! I appreciate the reply, Ned, as will my curious shipping relatives.
Much obliged — and please keep up the outstanding networking.

*** Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event
Friday, April 20, 2012
Diederich College of Communication, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
The inaugural Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event will focus on the relationship between corporations and society. What expectations do key stakeholders have for corporations as purveyors of social value and how do we communicate in ways that allow these stakeholders to understand and believe the ways corporates can and do meet these expectations.
The Corporate Communication Commons will provide an opportunity for corporate communication professionals to come together to consider how corporations embody social human values in ways that resonate with key stakeholders. The conference will consider issues that exist at the intersection of corporate identity, shared values and stakeholder trust.
To register for the Corporate Communication Commons Conference, please visit our registration page on the Marquette University website or email Meghan O’Leary at firstname.lastname@example.org.

*** SNA Maritime Security Forum
The Surface Navy Association and the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association
Maritime Security Forum – March 14 2012 United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut
The Surface Navy Association along with the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association are sponsoring our second Maritime Security Forum, entitled “Maritime Security: Guarding Our Country and Our Way of Life” to be held March 14, 2012 at the United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut.
This event will bring Navy, Coast Guard, Industry, Inter-agency and International stakeholders together to discuss the Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Sea power and how it applies to maritime security.
At this event we will examine the threats to America and its allies, both large and small. We will look into how disruptions to maritime commerce have global implications and how homeland defense begins far from our shores, and involves a broad spectrum of participants, each with vital capability and capacity. We will see how armed services and civilian agencies cooperate to share information and act upon that information and how industry contributes to global maritime domain awareness. We will show how technology, operations, policy, and information sharing must be coordinated to achieve maritime security.
We are presenting leaders who can address operations, policy, technology, and above all the importance of partnerships to achieve maritime security. No individual service or organization can solely ensure maritime security.
Details and registration for this thought provoking event can be found at http://www.navysna.org/CGForum/Index.htm.
