JOTW 52-2012

December 24, 2012

This is JOTW newsletter number 947

 

“People to whom nothing has ever happened cannot understand the unimportance of events.”

― T.S. Eliot

 

“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

T.S. Eliot quote

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

 

***  This issue of JOTW comes to you from the JOTW Remote Operations Center in Auburndale, Mass.

 

***  Note:  I am experiencing difficulties in sending the newsletter via Topica.  Please be patient as we work through this problem.

 

One solution will be to create a new list and migrate all subscriber emails to the new list.  Please sign up by sending a blank email to joboftheweek-subscribe@topica.com.

 

***  To post a job, just send the position, organization and location with a link or contact info for follow-up or replying to Ned at lundquist989@cs,ciom.  Posting a job is free.  Jobs will be sent out in the free weekly newsletter, which usually comes out on Mondays for free.  The newsletter, with all of these great employment opportunities, is then posted for free at www.nedsjotw.com, which is a free website.  Recruiters can submit up to three jobs for free.  Each job listing may be posted once in the newsletter for free. Did I mention that all this is free?

 

You can send job or other announcements to the entire list of 11,600-plus communication professionals right away using the exclusive JOTW “Can’t Wait” posting for a very reasonable cost of just $300.  “Can’t Wait” announcements are also posted to the website (www.nedsjotw.com) and will be posted in the next JOTW newsletter, too.  So if you can’t wait until the next newsletter, or have more than three jobs to share, or you want to repost a position, or just want Ned to make a few dollars for all of his effort, then the “Can’t Wait” option is right for you.  Also, it gets immediate, high-impact results.  To send a “Can’t Wait” announcement, contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  Top Jobs:  Stand above the rest.  Your job can be right here, at the top of the weekly JOTW newsletter.  Top job placement costs $100 per job per week.  To be on top, contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.  Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

 

You are among 11,607 subscribers in this community of communicators.  While this level has been pretty flat over the past year or so, this does represent an all-time high for the JOTW network.
***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  I can’t change your e-mail address for you.  But you can.  Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.  Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

 

***  The general JOTW policy is to submit three listings per corporate recruiter or executive search firm submission.  If you have more than three listings, I suggest sending out a Can’t Wait posting.

Ned,

I am as frustrated as you are but our contractor has made no headway, so it seems like we are out of options.  I will speak to my team next week on what they suggest, but it may be best to find an alternative solution at this point.  Everyone we have gone to cannot pin point the errors.

Thank you,

35.)  Executive Director, Outdoor Writers Association of America

 

OWAA Initiates Search For New Executive Director

 

The Outdoor Writers Association of America, the nation’s oldest and largest association of professional outdoors-focused communicators, is seeking a new executive director.

The 1,000-member association, formed in 1927 at a meeting of the Izaak Walton League of America, counts among its members the nation’s foremost outdoor writers, photographers, artists and broadcasters.

Current OWAA Executive Director Robin Giner submitted her resignation in November. Giner, who began her affiliation with OWAA in 2001, assumed the role of executive director in 2010. She plans to embark on a career more closely aligned with her agricultural roots.

“During her tenure with the organization Giner helped navigate OWAA through difficult times as it confronted challenges facing the entire media industry,” said OWAA President Mark Taylor, outdoors editor of The Roanoke (Va.) Times.

“However, this presents us with an opportunity to find a new director with the special vision and skills needed to keep moving us forward.”

An eight-member committee of OWAA officers and individual members is heading up the recruiting effort.

In the past, the organization’s leaders felt strongly that the position should be based in Missoula, Mont., current location of OWAA headquarters. That requirement has been adjusted to accommodate skilled individuals who might not find it possible to relocate.

“Our priority is finding a skilled, experienced leader who is familiar with the outdoors industry and outdoors-related communication,” Taylor said. “We are trying to do everything we can to ensure that our pool of candidates is as good as it possibly can be.”

The application deadline for the position is Jan. 21, 2013.

289-12

 

18.12.2012: 1030 UTC: 11:18.1N – 049:09.26E, Bossaso anchorage, Somalia.

 

A general cargo ship was detained on the 23.11.2012 by Somali authorities and ordered to anchor off Bossaso. Eight Puntland Maritime Police Force (PMP) personnel (four police men and four soldiers) were detailed to guard the ship. The four soldiers took over the ship and forced the Master to sail to another port. It is believed that these four soldiers were paid by a pirate gang to hijack the ship. While en-route one of the soldiers re-joined the four policemen, regained control of the vessel and sailed back to Bossaso. The vessel arrived and berthed at Bossaso port on 20.12.2012 where the PMPF personnel were replaced.

15.12.2012: 1458 UTC: Posn: 24:36.2N – 057:32.3E: About 80nm NW of Muscat, Oman (Off Somalia).

 

Armed pirates in a skiff approached and opened fire on a tanker underway. The Master raised alarm, commenced evasive manoeuvres, called UKMTO, sent distress alerts via VHF and SSAS and all crew retreated into the citadel. Navies in the vicinity responded to the distress and a naval boarding team was sent to rescue the crews. On boarding the vessel no pirates were found and the crew regained control of the tanker and continued their passage.

11.12.2012: 0150 LT: Posn: 01:17.59N – 104:08.31E, Around 3nm South of Tanjung Stapa, Pengerang, Johor, Malaysia.

 

Eight robbers armed with one gun and long knives approached and boarded an anchored tanker. D/O raised alarm informed the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) and crew secured all access doors and went into a safe room. The robbers forced their way into the bridge, engine room and Masters cabin and stole crew cash and personnel belongings. The MMEA responded immediately by sending two patrol boats, boarding the vessels and arresting the eight robbers. During the incident, the ship’s watch dog was killed and three crew injured.

 

285-12

 

14.12.2012: 2105 LT: Posn: 32:00.24N – 120:45.56E, Nantong Working Anchorage, China.

 

Three robbers tried to board an anchored bulk carrier via the gangway but were challenged by the alert crew and denied access to the ship. The robbers then managed to gain access to the ship via the barge working cargo. The alert crew spotted the robbers as they tried to lower ship stores and raised the alarm. On seeing crew alertness the robbers left the ship and entered the barge. Local agents informed.

 

284-12

 

11.12.2012: 0300 UTC: Posn: 06:04.43N – 001:16.33E, Lome Anchorage, Togo.

 

Eight robbers in a wooden boat approached an anchored product tanker at high speed.
