list, Eurasia-l, is moderated, but open to all readers. Can you please

Sender:  Merrill  ( merrill@fmnh785.fmnh.org )
Subject: 2nd call!!

Dear Friends,

Several weeks ago, I asked for anyone who would be leaving for
Moscow "in early June", who might be willing to hand carry a
manuscript to a colleage there.  I received several replies, and
would like to thank everyone who responded for their willingness
to help.  Unfortunately, there were delays in finishing the
manuscript, and I was not able to take advantage of any of these
kind offers.

I would like to ask again, if anyone who is going to Moscow in
the near future, would be able to help us out.  I will send
you my friend's telephone number and the manuscript in the next
several days.

Thanks again, and my apologies for the false alarm.

Subject: job searching

 I've been looking for work in Russia for a few months now and I can't
seem to find any really good sites  that advertise. Is there some
place out there I've missed? As well, does anyone know of any possibilities
that would allow me to use my degree in Russian and two years
experience living in St.Petersburg to at least pay off some of my
student loans? Well enough whinning.
 Any advice would be welcome.

Sender:  Sacramento Bee  ( sacbee@netcom.com )
Subject: U.S. Reporter Visiting Ukraine

 Friends in Ukraine and Belarus:

 My name is Stephen Magagnini, multicultural affairs writer for the
Sacramento Bee newspaper of California. I will be visiting Ukraine and
Belarus from June 27 through July 20, and am looking for English-speaking
contacts who can help introduce me to this fascinating, little-known part
of the world. I will be arriving in Kiev June 27 with a photographer.
After several days in Kiev, we plan to visit Rovno, Novovolinsk and Lvov
to meet families with relatives in Sacramento. From there, we hope to
spend five days in Belarus, followed by 10 days in Odessa, Nikolay and
Crimea. We would enjoy swapping tales and trading travel tips with
artists, writers, intellectuals, students, business people, etc. If you'd
like to meet us, please send me a message by Friday, June 23rd.

Subject: Russian speaking wool hair consultant needed (x-post from RUSAG-L)


     RUSAG readers:

     If you are or know of a fluent Russian (or local language) speaking
     wool hair specialist that is interested in doing an assignment in
     either Kyrgyzstan or Tadjiskistan, please send a resume to ACDI, 50 F
     Street, NW, Suite 1100, Washington, DC  20001, USA, fax 202/626-8726,
     ATTN:  Wool specialist.

     This is for work with an international agriculture development
     organization and the scope-of-work will be built around the
     capabilities of the person that ultimately does the assignment, so I
     don't have ANY specifics about the assignment.

     Russian speaking micro-credit, micro-enterprise and production
     agricutlure specialists are also encouraged to send in their resumes
     for a possible future assignment.  Mark these resumes ATTN:  Russian
     specialists.  Note that these resumes will be to build up a database
     of consultants, and are not for a current project.

     For the above positions, either Russian language fluency or fluency in
     the local language is an absolute must; no interpreters will accompany
     the specialists to the field.

     Thanks

     Ernest Bethe
     ACDI
