It’s difficult to know what to say to whom and how to say it. Ever try to write a presentation and not know how to start? Ever deal with an incompetent boss? Ever feel you were about to cry in front of your boss? Ever start to interview someone and not to know what to ask? Ever want to confront a coworker?
We've added the new site to the class blogroll, and you can find his site, complete with a Princeton reference, videos and amusing photos, here.

Here are the vital statistics on the "big adventure"...

Ieva, together with Phil's brothers, Marty '78 and Pete, and some dear friends, including our classmate Andrea Baumann Lustig, established the Fund in 2006 after Phil's untimely death a few months earlier. Ieva credits Andrea with inspiring her to create this Memorial. The Fund awards the Prize each year to an underclass rugby player to recognize "his or her unique leadership and sportsmanship qualities, both on and off the rugby pitch, that our friend and teammate Phil personified." The Prize is permanently represented by a stunning two-foot bronze sculpture that shows two hands poised to catch a rugby ball.
Phil and Ieva's two sons are extremely proud of their dad, most especially for his "off the field" accomplishments, being the most loving and nurturing (and nature-loving) dad ever. Oliver, a freshman at Wake Forest, will never forget all the "strenuous for some" bike expeditions with his father, and Colton, who is about to finish the second grade, claims he knows more of Patriot's Path in Morris County than any other 7-year old, thanks to his dad, who took him on Saturday morning hikes for as long as he can remember . . . what a fond memory.
For more information about the Foundation, please visit its website at www.parmrfund.org.

Back on Dec. 28, 2008, El Mundo published an article on a documentary that is being made about the story of an Israeli woman who was raped just seven weeks before she was proclaimed Miss World. And lo and behold, it turned out that the director is '80! Granted, Cecilia plays a supporting role in the article, as you might expect, but she and her latest film project are already making waves over her in ! Here's the link: http://www.elmundo.es/suplementos/cronica/2008/689/1230418814.html

The policy planning staff provides policy analysis and advice for the secretary of state, and its mission is “to take a longer term, strategic view of global trends and frame recommendations for the secretary of state to advance U.S. interests and American values,” according to the State Department’s website.
Anne-Marie , who will report directly to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will be the first woman director of the policy planning staff in the department’s history. Renowned diplomat and scholar George Kennan, a 1925 Princeton alumnus, created the office in 1947 and was its first director.
