O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

–  America the Beautiful

Words by Katharine Lee Bates,
Melody by Samuel Ward

Today is Memorial Day in the United States

I will remember my family members who have served their country during their lives, including my great grandfather, who was a 16-year old drummer boy during the Civil War, then joined the United States Marines; my father, Henry Lundquist, who served in the United States Navy in WWII; and my uncle, Charles Kirby, was a Marine during WWII.  I also remember my friends and shipmates whom I have served with who are no longer with us.

***  From Love to Bingo in 873 Images

 

To illustrate the power of the picture, Getty tells the story of life, from love to bingo as it were, using 873 images displayed in quick succession over a one minute period. Gathering the right images and creating the ad took AlmapBBDO six months to complete.

 

“It was a labour of love”, says Paranoid BR director Cisma. “Although it uses still images, we tried to make it dimensional with movement and by playing with perspective. All images are 100% from the Getty Images archive. The only thing we did was change the scale and rotation to build the stop-motion sequence. There’s so much in there that it’s a spot that should be watched frame by frame.”

Hi—

 

Hoping you can include this in an upcoming JOTW.  It’s a redefined version of a position you were kind enough to run for us about four months ago.  I was lucky and filled another opening (we’re building a dept…) with someone who brought more skills than anticipated, enabling me to move around some responsibilities and fine tune this, below, to what it should’ve been.

 

Thanks and have a great, safe holiday weekend!

83.)  Camp Host – 2012, Yukon River Camp [Summer], Sukakpak and Northern Alaska Tour Company, Yukon River Camp, Alaska

 

Responsible for assisting with all front-of-the-house activities [including greeting, serving, bussing, cashiering] related to both menu and buffet service in a fast-paced roadside cafe.

 

$7.75 / hour  +  room and meals  +  $1,000.00 transportation reimbursement season completion bonus

 

Spend your summer living and working on the banks of Alaska’s famed Yukon River!

 

In mid-may, eight-foot thick ice on the world’s fifth largest river will grunt, groan and crack before breaking  free and beginning the long journey downriver towards the Bering Sea. By mid-June, both commercial and subsistence fishers ply the Yukon’s water as they work to set up seasonal fish camps in preparation for a season of netting the legendary Yukon River King Salmon as they pass by on their 2,000-mile long spawning run. By late-July, adventurers in canoes and rafts pass, retracing the route of gold seekers who rode the waters of the mighty Yukon on their way to gold fields 100 years prior. By early-September, hunters and their boats descend on the Yukon River en masse, using its extended waterways to full advantage in an intense search for the mighty Yukon moose and the critical food source it will provide for the long winter ahead. By early-November, cold temperatures have once again formed a thick icy cap over the Yukon’s now frigid waters, signaling that winter has settled in once again.

 

At the center of all this activity is Yukon River Camp, providing food, lodging, fuel and other services to both visitors and residents of the region. Yukon River Camp is a summer seasonal operation located at mile 56 on the Dalton Highway [Alaska’s wilderness highway to the Arctic Ocean] at the north end of the only bridge to cross the Yukon River in Alaska and just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

 

The focal point of Yukon River Camp is a popular and busy restaurant open from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.  The diverse menu caters both to the tastes of those guests satisfied by a juicy flame-broiled burger, and to the tastes of those guests who instead wish to indulge in a meal of grilled salmon with melon salsa and three-pepper risotto or horseradish-encrusted halibut with mango salsa and soft polenta [a dish recently featured along with Yukon River Camp in the National Culinary Review]. The top-notch menu items and friendly service makes Yukon River Cafe a travelers oasis along the Dalton Highway.

 

The small coworker population and seasonal status of Yukon River Camp is ideal for a person looking to enjoy the profound simplicity of summer along the banks of Alaska’s Yukon River.
