The weekend read

If ever there were a week that needed rounding up, this one is it. Time to gather the herds and head toward the high ground of the weekend, pardner. I've got the best picks right here, found moseying around in my Twitterstream this week: Good reads, jobs, and other finds I think you should see before you light that campfire:
It wouldn't be the weekend without some jobs to peruse and pass along. UNC-Chapel Hill is looking for a public communications specialist in the Office of Research Communications. The World Bank wants an Arabic online communications associate. And the Charles Darwin Center in the Galapagos Islands needs a science communicator/media officer. You know what to do, cowhands.

Jim Garrow, a disaster planner and emergency and risk communicator with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, weighed in, so to speak, on the press release diet. His useful thoughts are here--don't miss his links to other posts of his on using social media with journalists. It's nice to have such thoughtful observers.

It's a long weekend here in the U.S., so I appreciate your help in getting it started. Thanks for reading, as always.
