JOB: South Asia correspondent of Windpower Monthly

Windpower Monthly is looking for a South Asia correspondent.

The candidate's duties would include, but not necessarily be limited to:

* On a monthly basis, pitching stories about wind energy companies, government policy and market economics primarily in India (the world¹s fifth-largest wind power market and expanding) but also in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, etc. We are also interested in energy economics - in particular, wind¹s role in relation to gas and coal across the region. Depending on the importance of news developments, story lengths would range from 80 words to about 1,500 words. * One in-depth annual market status report on India, to be filed every January on India, and, depending on developments, possibly on neighbors as well. * A handful of Indian wind energy conference reports, yearly.

Stories will be published in print and online. The candidate would need to demonstrate journalistic experience and a professional attitude. Reliability, integrity and responsiveness to queries will be key. I am in discussion with my superiors about what per-word rate we will offer and should know that within the next week.

Kindly invite your contacts to review our newly redesigned Web site: We¹ve just done a soft launch so there may be some minor ³issues.² (We¹d love to hear of any, if encountered!) Keep in mind, though, that the magazine itself is a quarter century old, with a Web presence also of a decade or so.

Here is our bio:

About Windpower Monthly

Windpower Monthly is the leading news magazine of the international wind
energy business, publishing non-stop since 1985. Fiercely protective of its
independent status, the magazine provides balanced quality information on wind
power and only wind power.

Our focus is on business, policy and economics. Windpower Monthly's
authoritative articles from around the world provide a concise yet detailed
overview of the essential political, industrial, environmental and technical
developments in the global wind energy arena. National news updates are backed
by regular charting of market forces, thought-provoking editorials and
incisive analyses of business and economic trends.

No other publication offers the same depth and breadth of global news
reporting in this specialised field of power production. We provide a magazine
for as broad a readership as possible, which nonetheless remains an essential
tool for all involved in the job of clean power supply.

It is our aim to increase your awareness of the role being played by an important new technology in electricity generation - and of its potential to play a far greater role in meeting a fundamental need of tomorrow: the clean,
safe and economic supply of electricity to all.

Bruce Springsteen Feat. Tom Morello - Ghost Of Tom Joad

I've never been much of a rock and roll music enthusiast, but this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert blew my mind away. I'm only now understanding the genius that is Bruce Springsteen, for example. I have yet to even scratch the surface of the treasures the Beatles have provided us. The list goes on...

But this performance, for all of us novices and lay people out there, is a great introduction to socially conscious music that is energizing and uplifting. And what to say of young Tom Morello! My goodness, his guitaring and mastery over the art of playing a simple instrument such as a guitar renders one speechless. Check out his raw talent at 4:00 and then at 7:00 till the end. If you're not a rock n' roll convert, what will you be after seeing this video?

All hail!
