Subject: Inuit research project help
I am an anthropology student at the University of Connecticut. I am involved in a research project about how language affects culture, and am having a hard time locating a local Inuit speaker to do a translation for me. I was wondering if you or anyone in your organization would be willing to help me? I would really appreciate your help.
Thank you for your time.

Subject: "Means, Motive and Opportunity" - for malamute project in Spain
I write you from www.malamutedealaska.com, a project in Spain to promote the malamute as a working dog.
Early all here in Spain think that malamutes aren't good for work (mushing or pulling). That's why we created this portal web to promote the Alaskan Malamute, and show all that it's more than a beautiful dog.
We have read your article "Means, Motive and Opportunity" and we think it's a very interesting opinion. If you let us, we would like to translate it to Spanish, and publish it at our website. Of course, we'll add the link to the original article, and your name as author.
I have read some very interesting articles on your site. I am glad to have found people who really know the spirit of this special dog, and this kind of life. I think we can learn a lot from your experiences and your ideas.
Have a nice day!
