Referenda & Referendums Definition: a public vote on a particular issue Latin has given English a sizable portion of its vocabulary, and one of the reasons that so many of our words are descended from that language is that they have entered our tongue at a number of distinct points. Some, such as butter, date back to the Roman invasion of Britain. Others came to us in the middle ages, from the Norman Conquest. Others still did not arrive until the 19th century, often as part of an expanding scientific vocabulary. Referendum is one of those late arrivals, initially used to describe a vote … Continue reading Which Is The Correct Plural Spelling?

Actually, it killed the person who was with me. Some random person. But it didn’t kill me and I escaped. At least I didn’t get myself killed this time. Then … Continue reading One Nightmare

IN BRIEF North Korea is a “small country, far-away, about which we know little,” to paraphrase a fateful comment in defense of appeasement from the 1938 crisis over Czechoslovakia. But there is one thing every American needs to know about far-away North Korea: its rulers are on a methodical and relentless quest for the capability to hit America with nuclear weapons. The nuclear campaign that North Korea is planning against the United States is one it intends to win. It is formally known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK. Washington is badly unprepared to meet this threat, because too … Continue reading The North Korea Threat – War Against America

The scourge of renaming streets, avenues, alleys, and cities is not unprecedented, neither is the idea of renaming an airport. However, what is unprecedented is renaming an entire city after an airport. To rename the airport of a city, you could just rename the city? It is trite to say that there is no absolute protection against such extreme reclassification. In the present political world, the airports in the cities are named and classified after political personalities, celebrities, freedom fighters or on the basis of local political history. In order to elude any naming… Continue reading Why naming cities after airport is a bad idea? (Pun)
On a river, a frog and a scorpion meet. The Scorpio would like to go to the other side of the river. Since he can not swim, he asks the frog who sits at the edge of the road to take him to the other shore.
How am I supposed to do that? Asks the frog. Quite simply, the scorpion replies. I sit on your back and you swim over. No! Says the frog, I would be pretty silly! You’ll stab me in the back and I’ll die. Why should I stab you in the back, asks the Scorpio. When we swim in the river, and I stab you, you will die and perish, and I will die with you, because I shall perish as well. I can not be interested in that. Right, says the frog, you’re right.
And he allows the scorpion to sit down on his back. In the immediate vicinity of the other Continue reading “The Force of Character”
