DEADLINES:  07-17-1998

OBJECTIVES: The sponsor provides support to facilitate a partnership
between a U.S. college or university with either the Samara State Aerospace
University's International Marketing Institute in the field of public
administration; or with the Togliatti Academy of Business and Banking in
the field of business education.  Participating institutions exchange

interactive distance learning programs at foreign partner institutions.

Projects should involve the development of new academic programs or the
building and/or restructuring of an existing program or programs, and
should promote higher education's role in the transition to market
economies and open democratic systems.  Feasibility studies to plan
partnerships will not be considered.

RESTRICTIONS: In the U.S., participation in the program is open to
accredited two- and four-year colleges and universities, including graduate
schools.  Applications from consortia of U.S. colleges and universities are
eligible.  Applications from nonprofit service and professional
organizations or non-governmental organizations proposing to facilitate a
partnership between a U.S. university and a foreign partner are also
eligible.  Participants representing the U.S. institution who are traveling

graduate students from the participating institutions and must be citizens.
Overseas, participation is limited to the Samara State Aerospace
University's International Marketing Institute and the Togliatti Academy of
Business and Banking.  Participants representing the foreign institutions
must be faculty, staff or advanced students of the partner institution, and

foreign partner, and be qualified to hold a valid passport and U.S. J-1
visa.

the cost of travel and per diem with an allowance for educational materials

organizations with less than four years of experience in conducting
international exchange programs will be limited to $60,000.  The sponsor
anticipates awarding two grants.

This is to answer people looking for a book about Russian cultural habits

Customs of the Russians by Zita Dobars.  It is a must for any traveler to
familiarize themselves with Russian life and people.  The publisher is
Passport books, (NTC Publishing Group), 4255 W. Touhy Ave., Lincolnwood
(Chicago), Illinois 60646-1975.  It was published in 1995.  Also, to answer
John George, as to what to give as presents (#27 in the book)...they
suggest flowers, illustrated art books, chocolates, cassettes, T-shirts and
pens.  The book contains info on dachas, Russian privacy, friendships,
dealing with Russian transportation etc.  Hope this is helpful to all.

Greetings, I greatly respect the work you've done on your web site.  I have
an internet site called Mama Lisa's House of Nursery Rhymes, the address is
http://www.bway.net/~lisee/mamalisa/ .  The site contains illustrated old
English nursery rhymes.

I'm currently working on creating a sister site to it which will be called
Mama Lisa's International House of Nursery Rhymes and Children's Songs.
The new site will include nursery rhymes and traditional children's songs
from as many other cultures as possible.  I would like to include a rhyme
from Russia.  I'd be grateful if you would help by sending me a Russian
nursery rhyme, with a translation into English.  If nursery rhymes do not
exist in your culture, a traditional song sung to or by young children
would be great.  If your native tongue has a non-Roman based alphabet
system, I can scan in a hand-written version of the rhyme.  If you would
like me to include a link to your site I would be glad to do so.  I would
also appreciate it if you could refer me to any site you know of concerned
with the folk tales, mythology or traditional songs of your country.  As an
aside, I'd consider posting an illustration with it, if it fits in with the
design of the site.  Thanks very much for any help you can give.

Lisa Yannucci

To whom it may concern:

A subscriber of our free service "Run The Planet" asked us to find
information on where to run or walk in Kyrgyzstan but we don't have any and
we couldn't find anywhere.

"Run The Planet", started in March 1996, is an Internet free service that
provides runners and walkers with information on where to run or walk in
the main cities of the world (not running events, just running routes). The
project works on a cooperation base, therefore everybody could contribute
by sharing their knowledge with the rest of the runners.

If you have two minutes to spare, would you please write down four or five
lines where to run in any Kyrgyzstan main city that you know about?

The information will contain your name and your e-mail address and will
look like this:

>SAN FRANCISCO (USA/CALIFORNIA)
>- By John Smith (Smith@example.net): Possibility of running over and back
>across the main bridge early in the morning. Great course.

The lenght of the text is up to you, and if you know other cities well
(anywhere in the world) and would like to submit more than one, it is more
than welcome.

In exchange for your cooperation we would be glad to provide you with a
link to your website if you have one. To link your webplace in a proper way
to "Run The Planet", we would like to receive from you the official name of
the webpage and a short description of it. Plus the e-mail address of the
website.

Subject: Financial Journalists in Moscow, Russian Federation

Hi Friends,

Wish to post the following listing on your JOB bulletin board. Can you
kindly post it.

Thanks & regards
s. joel


Financial Journalists in Moscow, Russian Federation ( English)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

We are a leading Russian language Finacial weekly newspaper, established
since 1993 with a circulation of over 60,000 in Russian Federation. We
have, with foreign investment, started an English Language Weekly,
focussing of Russian securities, investment banking, finance and
economy.

We intend to make our paper upto the industry standard and THE final
word on financial journalism in and from Russia. The competetion and the
circumstances of operating a foreign language weekly in Russia make it
an extremely challenging job for every one involved in the publication.
It is imperative that persons reading further and interested must be
highly charged, driven and competetive individuals.

Our current team has English speaking persons but for giving a wider
perpective, better flair to language and reporting, analyses based on
experience and instincts we would like foreign journalists and Editors
to join us.

The posts open are :-

Assosiate Editor   (1)
Sub Editors      (2)
Staff Writers    (2)
Re-Writers    (2)
Journalists/Field Reporters
Advertising Manager   (1)
Internet Edition Manager (1)

Relevant experience of 3-5 years is necessary but writing style, clarity
of thought, simplicty of expression and ability to write on this rather
dry subject of finance in interesting and inviting prose would be most
important considerations.

Computer proficiency and at least 300 Hours of experience on internet
are essential.

Understanding of Russia, Russian language (beginner to middle level -
spoken and written), Russian culture and of the evolution of Russian
Economy for the last 5 years would be important.

We are looking for a young team, that can be cohesive and take the paper
forward into the next century. We wish to keep the team small and close
knit.

Patience, ability to listen & adapt, accomodate and adjust to harsh
natural conditions, work and find way through the slow, murky and opaque
conditions in economy and politics of a former communist ruled country
are essential traits in personality if you wish to succeed in Russia.

People used to too many comforts, easily irritated by bureacracy,
stone-walling & inefficiencies of system will not be able to survive and
need not apply.

We are keen on applications from the UK & Ireland but shall consider ALL
genuine candidatures.

We must forewarn that living and working conditions in Moscow will be
completely different from anywhere else in the world and can be tough on
families. We prefer single applicants.

The selected persons shall be required to move to Moscow in August 1998.

The promoters are young and ambitious. They have a hands on approach
towards business and the coporate president has had a chequered career
in Russia. He is a team leader and demands as much from his team as he
himself contributes (which usually is a lot). The promoters are open to
share options and the pay shall be in line with the present remuneration
trends in Russia.

All mail, CVs shall be considered in confidence and any further requests
shall be respected.

Further details shall be provided after receipt of firm interest and CV.

Subject: SEEKING HOST LIBRARIES- OSI Network Library Program, Fellows Program

Thanks to Craig Zelizer for posting this.



SEEKING HOST LIBRARIES- OSI Network Library Program, Fellows Program

The Open Society Institute Network Library Program welcomes proposals from
libraries, information centers, and schools of library and information
science to host librarians and information professionals from the following
countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Hercegovina,
Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakstan,
Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland,
Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan,
Yugoslavia. The Fellowship should last from three to six months. Hosts may
be in English-speaking, French-speaking, German-speaking, Italian-speaking,
or Russian-speaking countries.

The aim of the program is to familiarize Fellows with the practice of
librarianship in other countries, and to give them some work experience in
libraries or information centers, or to help teachers in the LIS field to
broaden their knowledge and upgrade their skills. Proposals that focus on
helping Fellows to develop skills and strategies for sharing their new
knowledge with colleagues upon their return home will receive top priority.

Please address the following points in your application:

 * Why are you interested in hosting Fellows?
 * What do you hope to accomplish?
 * What does your institution have to offer NLP Fellows?
 * What is your institution's experience in LIS education and/or continuing
   professional development for librarians? If you have had any experience
   with international activities in this area, please describe it.
 * What program will you offer Fellows? (Describe how you plan to orient
   them to your institution and community; what kinds of work experience
   you can provide)
 * How many Fellows are you prepared to host?
 * How will you recruit and select Fellows? (Note that recruitment must be
   done in conjunction with the Soros Foundations Network.)
 * What are the benefits to Fellows?
 * What are the benefits to your institution?
 * What are the living conditions for Fellows you host? (Describe housing,
   community)
 * What is your plan for evaluating the success of your Fellows Program?

Proposals involving groups of fellows and multiple countries will be
especially welcome.

The application must be submitted in English, and the budget must be in
U.S. dollars. Budget should include accommodation, stipend for the Fellow,
health insurance, local transportation, airport transportation, attendance
at additional training workshops, conferences that could be part of the
Fellowship, package of training material.

Please note that the NLP does not pay overhead costs. Please note that this
program is for working professionals, not for students. If you are
interested in an exchange or twinning program, please apply under the NLP
Matching Funds Grants Training Program.

Applications must be received by the NLP office in Budapest by 1 August
1998. Decisions will be made in the middle of September.

 This is more a question than a comment...  Would you by any chance know
 the E-mail address of the magazine Polska Zbrojna?  We hope to acquire a
 Polish-built MiG-15 jet fighter later this year and we have to find photos
 to accompany the aircraft.  Any assistance you can provide would be most
 appreciated.  Sincerely yours, Renald Fortier Curator, Aviation History
