NANCY: Happy New Year!  Hopefully 2022 has gotten off to a good start, even if the world around us seems crazy and unstable right now.  As for us, we are controlling what we can and doing our best - and we hope you are too!  On that note, if your new year's resolution is a new job in the logistics industry, you’ve come to the right place!  Or, if you’re in charge of staffing, and your company needs new employees, you have also come to the right place!  

CHRIS: Pinto Employment Search is an executive recruiting agency specializing in Logistics & Supply Chain Jobs. Whether you are a company looking to hire someone, or a professional looking for your next opportunity, check out pintoemployment.com for more information. 

NANCY: You’re listening to a special episode of the Job Search SOS podcast. I’m Nancy Pinto and this is my husband, business partner and Gomez to my Morticia, Chris Pinto.

CHRIS: We’re going to let you know which jobs we are working on right now across the US. For more info, you can find the full job descriptions and requirements for all the jobs we’re working on at pintoemployment.com. 

NANCY: The best way to be considered for any position is to apply through our secure website, www.pintoemployment.com. When you submit your resume, we do NOT automatically send it to our client. We don’t do that until after we have a phone conversation with you. 

CHRIS: If you do not match the requirements of a particular position, you can click the big red Submit Resume button on the Home Page so we have you in the system to be considered for future opportunities. Also, check back frequently to see if we have something that your experience does match. 

NANCY:  Disclaimer:  Chris hasn’t read any of the trivia, so he’s learning this stuff along with all of you!

CHRIS:   We begin in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California, near the Nevada border.  During the summer months, the snow on the mountains is pink!  They call it “watermelon snow.”  It’s not actual snow.  It’s the microscopic algae Chlamydomonas nivalis, which thrives in cold conditions. Its red color protects it from the sun at such high elevations.  This algae is actually food for small mountain creatures such as rotifers, rotifers, nematodes, ice worms and springtails. Let’s go hiking!

NANCY: Edgar Allan Poe is most closely associated with Baltimore and Boston, but he also made his mark in South Carolina. For a year, from 1827 to 1828, he was in the Army, stationed at Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island, which is about 10 miles from Charleston.  He enlisted under the alias Edgar Perry, and though he did well - he was promoted to Sergeant Major - he chose to hide this part of his resume and instead say he was off having adventures in Europe! Not sure why. Anyway, there’s a restaurant on Sullivan’s Island called Poe’s Tavern, where some of the offerings are named after his works.  Drink a Devil in the Belfry before enjoying a Tell Tale Heart Burger!

CHRIS:  If, like my wife, you are interested in doomsday cults, and you find yourself in Philadelphia, check out the Cave of Kelpius, located in Wissahickon Valley Park. The Cave of Kelpius is named after Johannes Kelpius, a Transylvanian mystic who was born in the same town as Vlad the Impaler - Sighișoara, on January 1, 1667, and moved to the colony of Pennsylvania in 1694.  In the 1690s he predicted the end of the world twice, first in 1694, then in 1700.  Kelpius amassed 40 followers, who all moved into this cave with him and called themselves “The Society of the Woman in the Wilderness,” after the biblical account of a woman who fled into the wilderness to await the rapture.  The group soon earned the less elegant nickname “The Hermits of the Wissahickon.”  They passed the time in the same way I myself would pass the time if I knew the world was ending:  by studying stars and plants, writing poetry, and crafting a pipe organ.  Interestingly, he died on his 41st birthday, January 1, 1708.

“A time capsule in Texas contains a passbook to a bank account expected to be worth $1 quadrillion by the time it opens in 2968.

The Helium Centennial Time Columns Monument was built in 1968 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of helium. One of the time capsules sealed on the monument is set to open 1,000 years from that date and has a passbook to a bank account with a $10 bill.” end quote
