Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 22, 2022 is: galumph • guh-LUMF • verb Galumph means "to move with a clumsy heavy tread." // After long days at his landscaping job, their teenage son galumphs into the house and flings himself onto the couch, sighing heavily. See the entry > Examples: "One moment he'd be pitter-pattering…; the next he'd be whirling and galumphing about the stage." — Jeffrey Gantz, The Boston Globe, 8 Feb. 2022 Did you know? Bump, thump, thud. There's no doubt about it—when someone or something galumphs onto the scene, ears take notice. Galumph first lumbered onto the English scene in 1872 when Lewis Carroll used the word to describe the actions of the vanquisher of the Jabberwock in Through the Looking Glass: "He left it dead, and with its head / He went galumphing back." Carroll likely constructed the word by splicing gallop and triumphant (galumph did in its earliest uses convey a sense of exultant bounding). Other 19th-century writers must have liked the sound of galumph, because they began plying it in their own prose, and it has been clumping around our language ever since.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 21, 2022 is: paradox • PAIR-uh-dahks • noun Paradox refers to a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true. It can also refer to something or someone having seemingly contradictory qualities or phases. // The statement "less is more" is a common paradox. // It is a paradox that computers need time-consuming updates so often since they are meant to save people time. See the entry > Examples: "Demand for semiconductors has never been higher…. Yet chip stocks are one of the worst-performing sectors in the U.S. market this year. That paradox reflects the cliff that investors see looming for the economy and the stock market...." — Subrat Patnaik and Jeran Wittenstein, Bloomberg, 12 Apr. 2022 Did you know? The ancient Greeks were well aware that a paradox can take us outside our usual way of thinking. They combined the prefix para- ("beyond" or "outside of") with the verb dokein ("to think"), forming paradoxos, an adjective meaning "contrary to expectation." Latin speakers used that word as the basis for a noun paradoxum, which English speakers borrowed during the 1500s to create paradox.

What happens when you don't learn your “heritage language” — the language your parents or grandparents speak? Like many of us who are multiracial, or children of immigrants, our intern Izzy Bloom gets asked all the time why she doesn't speak her heritage language, Japanese. She usually says she's not as good as she'd like to be because her mother didn't teach her older brother, and because he wasn't taught Japanese, neither was she. It sounds simple enough, but the story is actually much more complicated. We hear about Izzy's journey to get to the real answer, and find out what she discovers about her family along the way.

Dr Mary Travelbest Guide

In this episode: .The FAQ is: FAQ How do I find out if the place I want to visit is open?   Today's Destination : Iceland Today's Mistake- Allergies  Travel Advice:  Before you travel, get your finances in order.   In this episode: FAQ How do I find out if the place I want to visit is open?   Answer: This is not the easiest question to answer, because the place you may want to visit could be open only during certain times, seasons or with certain weather conditions. It's best to call ahead, to email, and to check the website for updates. You may also want to check social media and do a search for any fresh news. If the place you want to visit is closed, you may want to have a backup plan ready. For example, in Paris, the Louvre is closed on Mondays. I was planning to go that day, but made other arrangements for my first time in the city. Now, I know the days they are open. Destination:  Iceland  My sister Ellen was in Iceland in Winter 2020, at the start of the pandemic and says it is warmer than Iowa, where she lives, in the winter season. Thanks, Ellen, for this recap of your trip and advice. There is a lot of wildlife, which I will mention in a bit. Ellen and her husband had hurricanes with 70 mile per hour winds and a Blizzard. They were not allowed to go outside. They called it a Red Condition. While they were huddled inside, Glen got a spot of COVID as a souvenir, but he didn't know it at the time.   Normally, the 9:15 sunrise is typical in winter, so there is a lot of DARK.  85% of people live in the city, for a total of about 360,000. It's the lowest population density in Europe, at just 3 people per kilometer. Why? The geography is harsh in this Viking country. She went to the Blue Lagoon, and experienced a non Geothermal heated luxury experience, Water beautiful, Stunning color. Soak Culture, she called it. They saw remains of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, lava, moss, snow,  and of course, glaciers. The Iceland Ring Road goes 800 miles around the country   They saw a lot of Animals: puffins not in winter, but would see them in summer, horses, arctic seagulls, yak, birds of many kinds   https://www.nordicvisitor.com/blog/in-focus-icelands-beautiful-wildlife/ https://icelandtrippers.com/animals-in-iceland/   They had to let go of food prices and what they thought. That was life. They said to themselves, “$10,000 was 100. `` Just accept it.  Lamb and fish are very good. Some tips include: Prepare for any weather year round.  Need a coat.  Lots of tourists. Bhe glacier was aqua. Language not a barrier Make jewelry from lava   https://a-z-animals.com/animals/location/europe/iceland/   Iceland is on my bucket list.  Today's Mistake -Allergies My son forgot his allergy pills in Hawaii. We were outside almost the entire trip. I didn't realize it for a few days, and he was miserable. I had never taken pills before, so I did not realize what a difference it can make for a trip. Don't forget your allergy pills when you travel, especially if you will be outdoors. If you do forget them, be sure to pick some up when you arrive. That is a mistake you should not have to suffer through.  Today's Travel Advice: Before you travel, get your finances in order.  Pay your bills ahead of leaving for a big trip. That makes your head clear and your desk clean when you return home. There's no worries about people calling for their money, because the check is on the way already. Leave your concerns behind when you travel.  I want to bring meaning to your travels.  Send a question or travel tip to info@drmarytravelbest.com.

What is climate change?

What is climate change? What is causing climate change? How do you cool down the earth? How is climate change affecting the oceans? Kids are hearing about climate change and they have lots of questions. In this episode we explain the science of climate change and look at how humans will adapt to a rapidly warming planet. We speak with Dr. Claudia Benitez-Nelson, oceanographer at the University of South Carolina and Dr. Jola Ajibade, a geographer at Portland State University. This certainly isn't a comprehensive look at the issue, but it's a good way to start a conversation about this issue for families and teachers. Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript Climate is the long-term trend of temperatures and weather. You can think of the difference between climate and weather like a dog walking down a sidewalk: The dog might go from side to side of the sidewalk - that's kind of like the weather - it varies. But the general direction of the dog is forward - that's the climate. Since the 1800s we've had a lot of changes in technology that mean humans are burning a lot of fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal, to power engines, run our cars, heat our homes and create electricity. That puts a lot of greenhouse gasses and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The atmosphere is like a blanket around the earth. The increase in greenhouse gasses means that the blanket is getting thicker, making the earth warmer. Think of the earth like a human body: when a fever increases our body temperature by a few degrees, it can make you feel really sick (sometimes really hot, but other times with cold shivers). It's the same thing for the earth! Even one or two degrees difference in average global temperature can make a big difference, including changing the amount of rainfall that a region gets or the overall temperature of the ocean, throwing our systems out of balance. Climate change can increase sea levels. As polar ice caps melt because of increasing temperature, the water levels rise, which can cause higher tides and more flooding. A good experiment you can do to visualize this is to grab a mixing bowl and turn a smaller bowl upside down inside of it (like an island). Pour some water and several ice cubes into the big bowl and see how high the water goes up the side of the smaller bowl. (You might need to weigh the smaller bowl down so it doesn't float up.) As the ice melts, observe how the water level rises up the sides of the small bowl. Increased water temperatures are bad for coral reefs and other ocean animals. The best way to stop climate change is to stop burning fossil fuels. People will respond to climate change through coping mechanisms, including migration and relocation. The people most affected by climate change are the people least responsible for greenhouse gas emissions. If you're concerned about global warming, find ways to consume fewer resources and to burn fewer fossil fuels. And lobby your government officials to make policies that benefit the environment and those most vulnerable to climate change.

Untimely Reflections #15: William Kaiser - Language, Memory & Psychoanalysis

The Nietzsche Podcast

William Kaiser is a sociologist, a pupil of Peter Berger, a student of the philosophy of Wittgenstein, and an autodidact in all things Freud, Nietzsche & Kaufmann. His dissertation on the topic of Wittgenstein was entitled, "A Wittgensteinian Critique of Realism in Social Science Methodology", and to this day, Kaiser maintains his skepticism towards what he characterizes as "naive realism". He expresses the common thread he sees in many philosophers, from Nietzsche, to Rorty, to Wittgenstein himself: rejection of the idea of obtaining some sort of objective knowledge and the re-centering of our philosophical orientation on the human psyche. All these figures cut through abstruse confusions to reach concrete insights about history and the human condition. Central to this project for Wittgenstein (especially Later Wittgenstein, aka "Wittgenstein II", who was Kaiser's focus in his work) is the way in which language shapes human thought. Through this conversation, we discuss the commonality between Nietzsche's ideas and Wittgensteins, on the issues of language, on memory and forgetting, self-identity, and what it means to learn and live an enriching life. We also spend some time discussing Freud and the influence Nietzsche had on the famous Viennese psychoanalyst.

Fights over language have always been a part of Quebec politics, and of life in the province in general. For the most part, they tend to end in a begrudging compromise, with French protected and English available but not given equal billing. A new bill about to be passed by the province's majority Coalition Avenir Quebec government is threatening to change all that.The government says it's necessary to protect the province's official language. Everyone who isn't a native French speaker, from Indigenous people to Anglophones to new immigrants hoping to make a home in Quebec, say that the bill is far too harsh and will make things like doctor-patient relationships, workplaces and institutional services far more difficult to navigate. So what's in the bill? What does it actually mean? And what happens next?GUEST: Christopher Reynolds, Montreal-based reporter, The Canadian Press

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 20, 2022 is: ad hoc • AD-HOCK • adjective Ad hoc means "concerned with a particular end or purpose" or "formed or used for specific or immediate problems or needs." // An ad hoc committee was formed to investigate the matter. // There was an unexpected change of plans and ad hoc solutions had to be made. See the entry > Examples: "The council voted unanimously last fall to establish an ad hoc advisory strategic planning board tasked with writing a new long-range plan for the town." — Jodie Wagner, The Palm Beach (Florida) Daily News, 12 Apr. 2022 Did you know? In Latin ad hoc literally means "for this," and in English it describes anything that can be thought of as existing "for this purpose only." For example, an ad hoc committee is generally authorized to look into a single matter of limited scope, not to pursue any issue of interest. Ad hoc can also be used as an adverb meaning "for the particular end or case at hand without consideration of wider application," as in "decisions were made ad hoc."

Following two centuries of forceful assimilation policies, the existence of the Blackfeet Language was threatened as of 20 years ago, as there were no young speakers remaining. With efforts from within the community, such as The Piegan Institute, started by the late Darrell Kipp, there are over 100 new language learners who are carrying it on. Jesse shares the hope he gains from witnessing the young members of the community connecting to their culture.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 19, 2022 is: kibosh • KYE-bosh • noun Kibosh refers to something that serves as a check or stop. It is usually used in the phrase "put the kibosh on." // The rain put the kibosh on the Fourth of July fireworks display. See the entry > Examples: "The state Senate last week put the kibosh on up to $60 million more in aid for school districts." — Kevin Landrigan, The (Manchester) New Hampshire Sunday News, 24 Apr. 2022 Did you know? Evidence of kibosh dates the word to only a few years before Charles Dickens used it in an 1836 sketch, but despite kibosh being relatively young in English its source is elusive. Claims were once made that it was Yiddish, despite the absence of a plausible Yiddish source. Another hypothesis pointed to Irish caidhp bhais, literally, "coif (or cap) of death," explained as headgear a judge put on when pronouncing a death sentence, or as a covering pulled over the face of a corpse when a coffin was closed. But evidence for any metaphorical use of this phrase in Irish is lacking, and kibosh is not recorded in English as spoken in Ireland until decades after Dickens' use. More recent source theories include a heraldic term for an animal's head when born with only its face fully showing, and an Arabic word meaning “whip, lash,” but as the note at our etymology explains, no theory has sufficient evidence to back it.

Then when I notice headtrash or notice fear, worry, anxiety, and emotions that are creeping up, I do something with them, certainly, it usually means I need to communicate with someone in some way to decrease the stress associated with it. Thoughts on Breathing Most importantly, breathing is a really good thing. Even just starting today, a nice deep breath in and letting it out just gives me a sense of power in my body and clears my head. Therefore when I go to bed, it really helps to decrease that emotional stress. It goes back to that model that I shared. So when you decrease emotional stress, you gain clarity. And that allows you to take productive action. So even if the productive action is sleep, that breathing allows me to decrease and step outside of whatever is going on in that crazy brain. Suggested Resources Book: The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book) App: Chopra App Bullying Story My daughter was bullied in eighth grade. She was a gifted speaker, and she won the national speech tournament. She was number one and was doing amazing things. That is to say, one of the foundations of bullying is jealousy. If another person doesn't feel whole, then they feel a need to bring other people down. Then she went into ninth grade, and she experienced what I would call jealousy, and as a result, it came out as bullying. Consequently, it was social media causing a really difficult time for her. As a mother, you have to step back. You can't control everything. You ask how can you love, ditch your headtrash and decrease the stress?

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 18, 2022 is: indoctrinate • in-DAHK-truh-nayt • verb Indoctrinate means "to teach (someone) to fully accept the ideas, opinions, and beliefs of a particular group and to not consider other ideas, opinions, and beliefs." // The goal of the professor is to teach politics, rather than to indoctrinate students with a narrow set of political beliefs. See the entry > Examples: "Moreover, in a pluralistic society, parents from varied backgrounds want to know their children can receive a public education without being indoctrinated into a faith not their own." — David Callaway, The Parsons (Kansas) Sun, 26 Dec. 2020 Did you know? Indoctrinate means "brainwash" to many people, but its meaning isn't always so negative. When the verb first appeared in English in the 17th century, it simply meant "to teach"—a meaning linked closely to its source, the Latin verb docēre, which also means "to teach." (Other offspring of docēre include docile, doctor, document, and, of course, doctrine). By the 19th century, indoctrinate was being used in the sense of teaching someone to fully accept only the ideas, opinions, and beliefs of a particular group.
