Jane Goodall Wants You To Stand Up To Those Who Belittle Science

WASHINGTON ? Famed anthropologist and conservationist Jane Goodall wants everyone to stand up to those working to undermine scientific research by joining this month?s ?March for Science.

In a video posted to Facebook on Friday, Goodall spoke of the important role science has played in her own life. She she said she finds it ?disturbing? that today there are people belittling scientists and the role they play in our understanding of ourselves and the planet. 

?Many scientists have spent years collecting information about the effect of human actions on the climate,? said Goodall, who turns 83 on Monday. ?There?s no question that the climate is changing, I?ve seen it all over the world. And the fact that people can deny that humans have influenced this change in climate is quite frankly absurd.? 

The video message comes a few days after Goodall, a United Nations ?messenger of peace,? traveled to Washington, D.C., where she spoke with media before addressing students at American University. That same day, President Donald Trump, who?s described climate change as a ?bullshit? ?hoax? and who?s vowed to withdraw the U.S. from the historic Paris climate agreement, signed an executive order to reverse Obama-era policies aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions. 

Asked by The Huffington Post about Trump?s climate actions, Goodall called them ?immensely disturbing.? However, she believes the Trump administration has woken people up, citing the numerous marches and demonstrations.

The ?March for Science? is supported by a nonpartisan coalition of scientific groups and is scheduled for Earth Day ? April 22. While the main rally will occur in Washington, D.C., satellite marches have been organized in more than 400 locations around the globe. The D.C. event is ?a call for politicians to implement science-based policies, as well as a public celebration of science and the enormous public service it provides in our democracy, our economy, and in all our daily lives,? according to the official website of the march.

?I really hope that everybody who can will take part in this march,? Goodall said. ?I so wish I could be marching with you. I can?t, I will be far away. But there will be a cardboard, life-size Jane marching, showing everybody that I want to be there and that I shall be there with you all in spirit.?

This Word Is Harder To Define Than ‘Schadenfreude’ Or ‘Antidisestablishmentarianism’

What words give a Merriam-Webster lexicographer the most consternation?

Some people might envision a list of 10-dollar terms like ?verisimilitude,? ?nidifugous? or ?poniard? as true dictionary stumpers, but as word maven Kory Stamper explains in her new book Word by Word, the hardest definitions are those attached to simpler letter combos. Think ?but,? ?be,? or ?the.?

The challenge for lexicographers, Stamper explains, is not only to provide a concise, clear definition for the average dictionary user, but also to make sure the definition comprises the many uses of a word. Is ?do? used the same way when someone suggests you ?do dinner? and when you ?do your homework?? That?s for the editorial staff at dictionaries like Merriam-Webster to nail down.

Stamper makes it clear in her book that the job of Merriam-Webster and other dictionaries is to be descriptive, rather than prescriptive, when it comes to chronicling language. That means instead of delivering instructions for ?proper? usage from on high, lexicographers aim to document and define language as it is actually used. That?s right: As much as ?irregardless? feels like the typeset equivalent of nails on a chalkboard for some, its use is widespread enough to deserve a spot in the dictionary. (Same goes for ?facepalm? and ?binge-watch,? two recent additions.)

In recent months, Merriam-Webster has shown that dictionaries can be punk rock, too ? the dictionary?s Twitter account has trolled Kellyanne Conway for her definition of ?feminism? and Scottie Nell Hughes? ?mazel tov cocktail? slip, and became the fact-based watchdog we needed during the chaos of election season. In this political era, we are reminded daily of the power of words, and Stamper?s book is yet another example of that.

A book about dictionaries could likely seem like a dream to a certain sect of book-lovers and a snooze-fest to others, but Stamper?s accessible yet pragmatic writing falls somewhere in the middle: A pleasant, yet realistic, view of the challenges that come with working at one of the best-known dictionary publishers out there. Despite the mid-century coffeemaker Stamper says is still present at the Merriam-Webster offices, ruminating on usage in a quiet office sounds ideal for the average bookworm ? until one is tasked with reviewing the definition for ?take,? as Stamper is in a middle chapter of the book.

?Sometimes these small words are pulled from the regular batches and are given to the more senior editors for handling. They require the balance of concision, grammatical prowess, speed, and fortitude usually found in wiser and more experienced editors,? Stamper writes.

Seriously: ?Take? is no joke. If you?re not convinced, though, don?t take our word for it: Pick up Word by Word and see dictionary-making in a way you hadn?t before.

Word by Word is out now. Pick it up on Amazon or your local indie bookstore.

Twitter Is Shook That Han Solo’s Name May Not Be Han Solo

Han Solo stole our hearts with his badass space-pirate persona in ?Star Wars? but, in true pirate fashion, he may have been hiding something from us over the years: another identity.

Disney CEO Bob Iger dropped that bombshell Thursday during a University of Southern California lecture where he discussed the upcoming, untitled Han Solo anthology film. Iger stated the project, which begins with an 18-year-old Han Solo and follows him through age 24, is currently in production. 

?There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo?s life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee that will happen in this film,? Iger said. ?But you will also discover how he got his name.?

?How he got his name??! 

What?! Sure, we knew that Han turned to the smuggling life after being orphaned at a young age, but this is MAJOR.

Twitter agreed, and users have been conveying their shock.

Some have even ventured a few educated guesses about what his real name might be …

The ?Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film? is scheduled to debut on May 25, 2018.

Without the satisfactory feeling satisfaction we would just be showing up for work just for the sake. This in turn leads to low productivity. It can also lead to inefficiency and so many other disadvantages which could lead to low growth of the business leading to your sacking . Honestly who would want that? I bet we would all want to keep our jobs and at least save our mode of earning.

Time is going by so slowly now that I’m working at home near We met with Pat from LiceMagic.com this last week. It’s such a blessing to be much more relaxed than I was before.

I have been doing squats every day. I think my legs are so sore, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do them again. It really feels good to work out.
A friend of mine from Lice Happens helps keep me accountable.


up early

has done such great things for the environment. They have been doing this for many years. Knowing someone has been in business for such a long time is really reassuring. If I need them in the future, they seem like a company I can trust .

barely know

I finally found a company that can help me with my debt . I had some student loans that I’ve been carrying throughout the years. I have been looking for a good company I could trust. It’s hard to know who can really help. I also saw this recently too :http://weirdscholarships.co/ but I am not sure I would qualify since I consider myself normal..lol

This weekend

We cannot wait for this weekend. It’s going to be the belated celebration and we are going to the park to watch the fireworks.

It’s going to be a really good time, lots of food and hanging out with family. We are so excited we can hardly wait. I was just thinking that I needed to do my review of this site: ( http://lefthandedscholarships.co )

Hopefully, things will work out.

Football Now!

Football is so much fun to watch in person. I have a difficult time watching it on T.V. There are so many commercials and time outs that it’s slow to watch. At a real game, you don’t have that and you can get hot dogs and soda also. They have really good hot dogs in LiceHappens.com

Understanding Math

Whew..one thing is for sure, I am glad I learned math, I know it seems funny, but I remember watching those cartoons on Saturday mornings where we had to learn a few things about math and equations…I guess it is the little things. Ah, can’t wait to go to the beach tomorrow! Going here next week too! http://www.licehappens.com/lice-removal-service-roswell-ga-serving-all-of-atlanta-and-surrounding-areas

Excited

How do you know which company to choose to work for!? I am so glad that I was able to finally get my debt eliminated fast.I am so excited that I only have two more years until I graduate.I like to mix my ketchup with mayonnaise and dip my fries in it. Ah…just some random thoughts for the day. Anyway, I am going to see Dr. Overton – http://chiropractorofcolumbus.com this next week. I am sure it will be a great visit.

Lice Removal Brookhaven

Question: We got rid of the head lice, but my head is still itchy. Does this mean I still have lice?+

Answer: Not necessarily. If you’ve done the combing over the appropriate amount of time and have no signs of the bugs, you’re probably still reacting to the bite. When you get a mosquito bite, the bug doesn’t have to be around for you to itch, right? But the itch bothers you for quite a while. Same with lice. You also could be itchy because combing and blow drying and picking can irritate your scalp. And if you are a person who also did some sort of chemical treatment, this could be irritating as well. And then there is simply the possibility that after having head lice, you are now hyper-sensitive to any itch on your head. Hey, I’m scratching my head right now just writing this. This is normal. But when in doubt, call a professional.

Lice Removal Alpharetta

At Lice Happens Atlanta our goal is to safely and effectively rid your family of head lice using only pesticide-free products, so that your life can return to normal!

Not only do our experts use a comprehensive approach to our lice removal services, combining thorough, meticulous combing of the hair with our effective, non-toxic products to remove lice and nits, we guarantee our services 100%!

That means that you don’t have to worry about those pesky pests, we get the job done the first time!

I combed and got rid of the lice but found no nits. Am I lice free?

Answer: Where there’s smoke there’s usually fire and where there’s lice, there are usually nits. Not always, but you should keep on wet combing every few days just in case a missed nit turns into a unwanted bug. When you have been regularly combing for 2 weeks with no new bug sightings, that’s when I think you can breathe a sigh of relief and reduce your combing to routine lice checking.+

Do Selfies Spread Head Lice? Take your best shot.

Are you creeped out by cautionary tales of kids getting head lice from group selfies? Some say the cultural phenomenon has reached new heights in popularity and originality, but the concern over selfie-spread lice takes it to new lows. Isn’t it just like adults to spoil all the kids’ fun? Sheesh. If you are looking for lice removal Alpharetta , just give us a call!

Lice have a strong will to live. Head lice are highly contagious and they are, in fact, passed by head-to-head contact. There is a slight, though unlikely chance that shared pillows, hairbrushes and hats can facilitate their transfer. But the human scalp is not simply where head lice prefer to live, it is required for survival. Human heads are a lifeline. The louse will hold on for dear life rather than give up a wellspring of food to go on some haphazard search for better eats.

The louse is a wingless insect that cannot fly. It moves by crawling and cannot jump from person to person—or anywhere, for that matter! When paired with the low desire to move away from prime real estate, they’re not winning any marathons in the world of bugs. “Slow as a louse,” should be an expression more people use.+
By further educating our clients, not only are they getting the knowledge they need for prevention, they are SAVING in the long run by not having to re-treat!

If you or someone you know is in need of our services, give us a call, we are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Are you Failing Anatomy and Physiology?

When a student enrolls in anatomy and physiology, they have high expectations of doing very well in this class. However, for many people, this is not the case. In fact, a majority of people will drop out of this class the first two weeks and then the rest will follow all the way up until the cut off time that a particular college allows. This is why an anatomy and physiology study guide is so important. Often, a teacher will not connect with every single student and every student will not learn the exact way that the teacher is teaching. Some students are visual, some are audio, in some or a combination of the two. In this class, because many class periods are one hour or less, students are just taking notes and having to review them later.

This results in a lot of self teaching that may or may not be beneficial to every student. Again, for those students who have acquired an anatomy and physiology study guide that can help them decipher some of this information, their grades will reflect this. The demand to get a high grade in this class is very important because some majors will require a student to pass this class with a letter grade of a C. or higher in order to enroll in anatomy and physiology II and subsequent classes beyond this.

The fact is, every anatomy instructor is different and every student will respond to their instructor in a different way. It has been known for many years that school only addresses one or two types of learning and for students that do not possess that type, they may be at a disadvantage unless they get an anatomy and physiology study guide that can help them wade through the information that is important which will in turn help them learn additional information that is supplementary to each concept.

The question is, where do students find a good study guide that can help them pass this class? To answer this question,http://anatomyandphysiologystudyguide.cohas created a reference website that can help students find the help that they need when they are looking for a guide that can help them get a better grade in this class. More often than not, at least one to two hours per class period of studying is required in order to at least get a letter grade of a C.

But with the right guide, studying will be much easier and even fun for those who are currently struggling in this class.

Applying for No Essay Scholarships For Your College Education

If it seems like the cost of earning a college degree just keeps climbing higher and higher as each year passes, it’s not just your imagination. It really is. The cost, in fact, has increased by over 1,100 percent since 1978 according to a Bloomberg study, the year that records of college costs began. The cost of earning a college degree has increased much faster than other things such as general inflation, medical care, and even food. Today, aside from purchasing a home, earning a college degree is the single most expensive thing most people will spend money on in their lives.

Despite such depressing statistics, there are proven ways to lower the cost of higher education. Some people, for example, choose to go to a community college for the first two years of school and then transfer to earn their bachelors degree at another school. Still others make use of challenge exams in their degree plans such as CLEP, DSST, AP and others. Although these strategies can lower a person’s total college bill substantially, it still leaves many thousands of dollars that have to be borrowed to graduate. What’s a person to do?

Good news: There is a way to obtain extra money for college that can dramatically lower and in some cases even eliminate your college expenses. That way is through no essay scholarships.

Scholarships are money that is given out to college students by various companies and organizations for meeting certain criteria. This money does not have to be repaid. It is not a loan. Many scholarships do require applicants to write essays of some kind stating why they deserve to receive the scholarships. These essays can be tedious and time-consuming to write. Because of this, it is often difficult to apply to many scholarships that have an essay component; it simply takes too much time and effort to do so.

No essay scholarships, in comparison, are very easy to apply for. If you meet the criteria of the organization awarding the scholarship, you simply fill out and submit an application and wait to see if you are chosen.

There are so many organizations that award these scholarships that if you spend enough time searching, you are sure to find one or more you qualify for. Some are merit based and will want to confirm your GPA while you may qualify for others for a variety of other reasons such as having membership in a certain organization, possessing a certain skill, or even something you may never have even considered, like having red hair or being left-handed.

Higher education planning can certainly seem daunting with the constantly-increasing costs. Rest assured, though, that there are ways to lower the costs and no essay scholarships are one of the best ways to accomplish this.
