Subject: Janet McNeill - Found Her

I posted a message over this past weekend asking for help
in locating Janet McNeill who had been working in
Nizhny Novogorod, Russia and has since moved to Kyrgyzstan.
As luck would have it, I also sent a message to her
email address in Nizhny, and it was still active and
forwarded to her new address in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan.

Thanks anyway, maybe next time it will not be so easy.

Subject: information on Minsk

Dear Friends,

I'm not sure if this is the best format for my request, but I thought I 
should give it a try.  I have a friend in Minsk who I have been writing 
to for several years.  Now I'm in Finland and am planning a trip to 
visit Belarus sometime in May.  My problem is that I'm not sure if the 
mail is going through and I do not have my friend's phone number.  

I'm hoping that someone who lives in Minsk will read this newsletter and 
be able to help me.  My friend is Anna Butyrchik, she is a student of 
English and American literature, and she's been very active with 
international groups that visit her city.  She lives on Rokossovsky 
prospect.  If anyone in Minsk reads this and knows of her, could they 
please forward her phone number to me.  If not, they could notify me 
(via E-mail) and I could send a fax number to her.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: Student Exchange Partners Sought

I am in contact with a group of 20 high school and college 
students from Moscow who are planning a cultural exchange/ 
language study trip to the United States in June/July 1995 
for approximately 3 weeks.  They are looking for a group or 
person who organizes such programs, preferably but not 
exclusively in the New York area.  If you have any ideas on 
whom to contact, please respond by e-mail.

Thanks very much.

Subject: Modem adapters for US laptop to Soviet telephone jack (fwd)

Thanks to all who helped with the question of where to find a modem adapter
such that an American laptop can be plugged into a Soviet telephone jack:

Magellan's in Santa Barbara 1-800-962-4943 or fax 1-805-568-5406 or Internet
75713.2463@compuserve.com lists a "TeleDapter" for Poland and Russia (item
number ET131D) which does exactly this for $22.50.  Shipping ranges from 
$4.95 (normal) to $9.95 (air).  List subscribers noted that Magellan's 
catalog, Access Russia, is a must-see, full of useful software and books.  
All kinds of different phone adapters.  Customers of Magellan all seem to 
be pleased, both with customer service over the phone and also with quality 
of goods received.  Beyond computer stuff, Magellan's also apparently 
provides "the sorts of things that are not really needed by tourists 
to nice hotels (check out the water purifiers)..."  Also line testers, patch 
cord kits, compact surge suppressors for other countries, and so on.


Another source is Russian Information Services, 89 Main St., #2 Montpelier, 
VT 05602.  Same price.

Another source is Glasnet (info@glas.apc.org), which apparently charges
$10, but since they are in Moscow they can't help me much.

And several people noted that in Moscow, Radio Shacks, department stores, and
electronics stores carry these adapters for from $1. to $4.

A million thanks to Steve Gardner, Stef Monington, Michael Hale, Sarah 
Kight, Paul Richardson, Joseph Curro, Richard (in Moscow).

Rule of Law Consortium/ARD-Checchi Joint Venture

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Rule of Law Grants Program for Ukraine, Moldova, or Belarus


The Rule of Law Consortium (ARD/Checchi Joint Venture), under the auspices
of the United States Agency for International Development, announces a
Grant Program to support the creation of a stable legal and political
environment for facilitating the transition, through the rule of law, to a
democratic, market-based society in Ukraine, Moldova and/or Belarus (grant
activity must take place within the host country or countries).
Specifically, projects should be designed to strengthen core legal
institutions and processes of the justice sector, as well as civil society
as it relates to legal development, in order to support general legal
reform, encourage an orderly transition to a market economy, and protect
human rights and limit the potential for arbitrary exercise of government
power.

Types of projects which would meet this criteria might include, but are
not limited to the following activities:

        1) increasing public awareness and knowledge of laws and legal
        procedures through a variety of mediums, e.g., library and
        information systems development, including electronic networking
        or the mass media;

        2) promoting the development of citizens' organizations to
        advocate for changes in the legal system;

        3) strengthening representative institutions of the people to
        ensure effective protection of their individual and property
        rights;

        4) assisting citizens to utilize the legal system for the
        adjudication of conflict;

        5) developing organizational management and strategic skills; and

        6) developing professional and trade associations.

Proposals are requested from U.S. not-for-profit (501 C 3),
non-governmental and private voluntary organizations and groups in
co-partnership with corresponding entities in Ukraine, Moldova and/or
Belarus.  Official public institutions (educational institutions,
libraries, etc.) may also participate in special circumstances.

The applicant(s) must demonstrate the following with the submitted
complete application package:

        1) experience in providing assistance to indigenous groups through
        domestic or international projects;

        2) a capacity to manage program logistics in a challenging
        environment;

        3) an understanding of the critical needs of the ROL Project as
        manifested in the solicitation;

        4) experience working with PVOs/NGOs in the NIS generally and in
        Ukraine, Moldova and/or Belarus in particular; and

        5) a capacity to field staff persons with local language
        capability.

Although applicants are welcome to discuss projects with ROL staff--or
submit concept papers two-to-three pages in length--they are advised that
an official application package is required for funding consideration.
Grants are awarded through an open, competitive, and merit-based review
process.  All proposals require a 25% match from non-federal sources.  The
deadline for complete official applications is April 10, 1995.  Decisions
are anticipated in June 1995. Awards may range anywhere from $5,000 to
$100,000 depending on the actual needs of the project.

Subject: Moscow 1995: An International Conference on Distance Learning
         (fwd)

Dear Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to a timely and substantive meeting
planned for this summer in Russia.  Organized by AAC&U and a set of other
key organizations, Moscow 1995:  An International Conference on
Distance Education will be held in Moscow, July 9-13, 1995.  It is designed
for all those in colleges and universities as well as in foundations,
government agencies, corporations and schools interested in exploring the
prospects for distance learning, and especially for providing and/or
receiving distance learning internationally.

The interest of many institutions in finding off-campus educational markets,
a growing need to internationalize programs, the emergence of powerful
low-cost educational technologies all of these are fundamental trends in
higher education currently.  Moscow 1995 will be of value to those
interested in planned, thoughtful and innovative responses to these trends
responses that take advantage, specifically of the potential benefits of
distance learning both domestically and between and among institutions in
different countries.

This five-day conference features an extensive and informative program
touching every dimension of the topic curriculum, pedagogy, faculty
development, marketing, management, technology, funding, etc.  The
program will include live demonstrations of state-of-the-art technologies that
bring distance learning within the reach of any institution.  A particular
focus will be on cooperation with the New Independent States, and the
conference will afford opportunities to interact with interested colleagues
from across that region.  There will be an engaging cultural program for all
participants.  A companion's program and post-conference trips to St.
Petersburg or Kiev are also options.

The attached materials describe Moscow 1995 in more detail.  We hope
that you will indicate your interest by completing and returning the attached
information form; you will then receive registration materials.  The organizers
expressly invite those who would like to be considered as presenters or
moderators to indicate this on the information form, as well.

We look forward to your reply and to welcoming you to Moscow this
summer!

Sincerely,

Paula P. Brownlee, President
Association of American Colleges
    and Universities

                             MOSCOW 1995:
           An International Conference on Distance Education

              The Presidential Academy for State Services
                            Moscow, Russia

  Moscow 1995 reflects an extraordinary convergence of
  developments.  Among them:  the search by colleges,
  universities and schools for new, off-campus educational
  markets and ways to enrich and internationalize their
  programs; the evolution and widening use of effective, low-
  cost educational technologies that bring distance learning
  within the reach of virtually any institution or
  organization; the emergence of new educational markets, as
  institutions around the world and notably in the countries
  of the former Soviet Union seek partnerships in providing
  quality education through distance learning; and the
  availability of major funding to assist in the development
  of distance learning internationally.  Because of the
  importance of the opportunities these developments create, a
  diverse set of organizations has joined together to plan
  this conference.

   East West Business Association, Portland, OR  Will Sponsor meeting
           on The Wine Industry in Central Europe and Moldova
     
          With wine making traditions going back centuries, and unique
resources as well as unprecedented opportunities for growth, wine making
countries of the former Communist world are already known.  The wines of
Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovenia are already on the
supermarket shelves.  Others may follow.

     Presenting at this meeting to introduce us to this area are:

     Josef and Lilli Fleischmann, the owners of St. Josef's Wine Cellars in
Canby, are natives of Hungary who have recently returned from a EBRD
funded mission to Moldova to assess the market potential of their wine
making industry, which used to provide most of the wine in the Soviet Union.

     Bob Liner, aka Bikaver Bob and co-owner of Liner and Elsen in NW
Portland, has been a wine merchant for seventeen years.  As a student of

Subject:  travel to Moscow and St. Petersburg

I will be going to Russia (Moscow and Petersburg) for the
first time this  June.  I will have been studying Russian for
about one year in June.  The trip is purely for pleasure and I
would be interested in any tips, suggestions, warnings, etc.
any of you may have especially concerning:

1.  Accomodations (especially in private homes or rented    
rooms)
2.  Travel between Moscow and Petersburg,
3.  Safety issues for a woman traveling alone
4. What to bring and/or NOT to bring.
5. What one simply MUST see
6. Some of your stories.

Any tips truly appreciated.

that matter would be greatly appreciated.

This message concerns the Moscow travel course on 27 May-27 June and is being
sent to people who:
--are at some stage of deciding whether to participate
--have requested detailed information but have not responded further
--requested information on behalf of others or are information distributors
--received the notes & observations from the 1994 trip

The present status is that there is not yet a sufficient number of
participants to cover fixed expenses without raising the cost to everybody,
and time is running short because deadlines are approaching: Airplane space
has to be confirmed and deposits paid, accommodations and the NATO seminar
for the Brussels stopover must be confirmed, I am ready to print the Briefing
Book, and so on.

I therefore encourage those still deciding to act and those in a position to
inform others to do so.

Eastern Michigan University and George Mason University--both of which will
offer the study trip for credit for participants who are students and desire
that--continue their recruitment, while I am coming back to this more diverse
group.

The people who have come on the course over the last 15 years pretty much all
think it was the experience of their lives and wonder why people aren't lined
up to go, but it doesn't happen that way.

There are, as usual, many people who would like to go "next time" when one
condition or another has been resolved. I have accumulated a list of hundreds
over the years for whom "next time" never comes because life always presents
another hurdle.

Those who wait for everything to fall into place assume implicitly that
others will keep the program going until they are ready. It is not a good
assumption because there is now the risk it will be necessary to stop the
course altogether. That would be a pity at a time when our own future may be
increasingly dependent upon Russia's. (I suggest, for example, reflection
about the implications of the current extra-legal penetration of Western
financial institutions by Russian players in the light of the impacts of the
destabilization of Mexico's currency.)

If you need another copy of the details concerning the course, please let me
know.

Thank you,
Eric
