Career Update

As some readers may know, I recently applied for a job with 2CC, I will put you all out of your suspense, and inform you that I didn’t get the job…I came close, but I was beaten by somebody with more experience.

My SNAP (School based New APprenticeship) position in IT support expires next week, so negotiations are ongoing for future arrangements. I have enough “points” to finish year 12 early (which would be nice…mainly for the stress releif) and still gain a year 12 certificate, which makes it possible for me to get a better paying school assistant position, which would probably be less paperwork for everyone.

My voluntary (and eventually paid…eventually) newsreading position with Australian Independent Radio News remains stable, currently on Saturdays.

Oh well …. there may be a ‘ Karmic spinoff ‘ as a result of not getting that position .

Well, it’s another way of saying — What you lose on the roundabout you pick up on the straight (or something like that ) .

By the way …. as a matter of interest ….SNAP also stands for Systems Nuclear Auxiliary Power .

The SNAP-27 radioisotope thermoelectric generator is one of several atomic-powered electric generators developed jointly by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Atomic Energy Commission. (SNAP stands for Systems Nuclear Auxiliary Power.) It is fueled by plutonium-238. The fuel capsule, containing 3.8 kilograms (8.36 pounds) of fuel, was carried to the Moon in a separate Fuel Cask attached to the side of the Lunar Module. The fuel cask provided thermal insulation and added structural support to the fuel capsule.

Well, eebl, I could have used the comment in its original context, where I was talking to myself about the new wooden poles near the Ainslie shops, but I didn’t document that.

Sounds like they invented the acronym before the meaning to me John.
