Subject: Good Morning..

I am Edward R. Carr  a geographer and anthropologist whose career and research focus 
on exploring alternative ways of achieving meaningful and enduring improvements to 
human well-being. I worked in rural sub-Saharan Africa on issues of development and 
global change among various rural communities. My scholarship and teaching encourage 
students and development professionals to reexamine the sometimes-damaging 
preconceptions embedded in development theory; in my book Delivering Development: 
Globalization’s Shoreline and the Road to a Sustainable Future, I demonstrates how 
these commonly held beliefs about globalization and development have failed the 
global poor, and how to redefine what assistance to developing communities really 
means in an ever-changing world.

You have been selected to work with me through the UFL HR deparment as my PA while 
I attend to a United Nations Environment Programme in Australia. You will only Mail 
letters, Reply emails and run errands on my behalf at $500/wk. I will meet you on 
campus upon my arrival by the last week ot September for one on one interview and 
possibilities of making it a long term employment if you impress me while I am away. 

In addition , I am the author of more than 50 publications on issues of development, 
adaptation to climate change, and the changing global environment. Of particular 
note, I was the lead author of two global environmental assessments (the Millennium 
Ecosystem Assessment and the The United Nations Environment Programme's Fourth 
Global Environment Outlook) and was review editor for a chapter of the 
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report. So you 
understand you are working with a very busy person.  To apply for this position, 
Please send your Full Name, E-mail, Alternate E-mail and Mobile _here_. 

Note: I will communicate via email frequently and you must be able to check your
