TED Talk: Go Ahead, Make Up New Words

No Comments

first_imgWhen I was in grade school, I was fascinated with words. We had a Webster’s New American Illustrated Dictionary in our house, and it was common to see me sitting on the floor, reading the dictionary to learn new words. My parents couldn’t understand my fascination. Why would a nine-year old girl sit inside on a beautiful summer day to read a dictionary? Throughout school, I kept exploring words, finding out their origins in my high school and college linguistics and foreign language classes. In grade school, my friends and I made up new words to speak in our own language. Which didn’t please our teachers. Years later, I haven’t lost my love of learning about words.So this week when I saw the title of Erin McKean’s TED talk, Go Ahead, Make Up New Words, memories of school friends, made-up words, and high school Spanish and German class came flooding back. McKean begins her talk with:I’m a lexicographer. I make dictionaries.as she explains what she does, how we use words, and how you can use six methods to make new words in English.Did you know we (English speakers) stole the word “kumquat” from the Chinese language? Or that electrocute is a blend word made from “electric” and “execute?”It’s a short video, less than seven minutes. If you accept her suggestion to go forth and make new words, I’d love to know what new words you create.Source: TEDThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading…RelatedTEDxUofM 2014: What Makes a Word “Real”?At this year’s TEDxUofM event, University of Michigan Professor Anne Curzan finished out the day with her talk, What Makes a Word “Real”?

South African dairy body takes top accolade

first_imgSouth Africa’s dairy industry is provingto be as innovative as any in the world.(Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. Formore free photos, visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS • Tessa WeissnarConsumer Education Project of Milk SA+27 12 991 4164 or +27 83 967 4160RELATED ARTICLES• Southern Africa’s greenest dairy• Rooibos yoghurt fights cancer• Research to boost rooibos exports• No headaches for wine lovers• Honeybush industry set for growthEmily van RijswijckSouth Africa’s dairy industry shone at the International Dairy Federation’s 2011 Innovation Awards in Parma, Italy recently, producing both finalists and winners.The Consumer Education Project (CEP), an initiative of local dairy industry body Milk South Africa, took two first prizes for its innovative advertising and marketing campaign, while local dairy producer Fair Cape Dairies was named a finalist in the Best New Dairy Drink category and also contested the Best New Functional Dairy Product title.In the former category Fair Cape was recognised for its innovative Rooiboost Shots, a drinking yogurt flavoured with rooibos tea, and in the latter category for its rooibos yogurt.Rooibos tea has been the subject of numerous studies, which indicate that it does indeed assist in the fight against cancer and as a result, Fair Cape’s products are the only yoghurt to be endorsed by the Cancer Association of South Africa.“We are thrilled at this achievement,” said Louis Loubser, Fair Cape Dairies’ marketing director. “We have always believed in our products – however, to have them recognised as some of the best new dairy products in the world this year eclipsed our greatest expectations,”The CEP was launched by Milk South Africa to promote the health and nutritional benefits of dairy. Milk South Africa represents both the Milk Producers Organisation and the South African Milk Processors Organisation.The cow dealerThe CEP advertisement, titled The cow dealer, was produced by Cape-based advertising agency Fox P2. It was well received by the judges and took first prize in the categories of Best Generic Dairy Marketing Campaign and Best Consumer TV/Cinema Advertisement or Social Networking Marketing Campaign.In the charming advert, an indigenous cow dealer convinces first a Dutch settler and then a Zulu warrior of the benefits of milk, an added bonus which they will receive when they buy his latest “cow” model. Upon tasting the milk the settler and warrior smack their lips in delight, declaring the sale to be a done deal.CEO of Milk South Africa, Nico Fouché, said the awards have shown that the local milk industry can deliver world class products, to the benefit of both consumer and industry.In the Generic Dairy Marketing Campaign category the South African winner beat Canada’s Federation des Producteurs de lait du Quebec and its Cream campaign and the Luxlait Association from Luxembourg with its Vitarium campaign.In the Consumer TV/Cinema Advertisement category it saw off competition from India’s Gujarat Cooperative Milk with its Amul Master Chef TV campaign and Federation des Producteurs de lait du Quebec from Canada with its Milk campaign.CEP co-ordinator Christine Leighton expressed her pride in the accolades as, she said, the initiative strives to educate citizens about the health and nutritional advantages of dairy products.“This achievement has involved leading South African experts in fields such as dietetics, nutrition, dairy technology, marketing and advertising.”This year’s awards attracted over 100 entries from 25 countries in 14 categories including products, packaging, marketing as well as environmental sustainability.The judging panel was made up of 10 industry experts and was chaired by American Bill Bruce, editorial director of the UK-based FoodBev Media food and beverage industry publishing group.last_img read more

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ As expected, Roma pair Bryan Cristante and Nikola Kalinic will be out for at least a month with injury setbacks. Roma’s official website confirmed Cristante tore a tendon in his right adductor muscle against Sampdoria yesterday. Kalinic, meanwhile, suffered “a fracture at the top of the fibula bone”, although the Giallorossi assure the striker does not need surgery. Nonetheless, the midfielder will sit out the remainder of 2019, while his Croatian colleague should be back in a month. The Giallorossi now have seven players on the treatment table, with Lorenzo Pellegrini, Davide Zappacosta, Cengiz Under, Amadou Diawara and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also out.last_img read more

5 players to make an impact at World Cup 2015

No Comments

first_imgThe February 14-March 29 World Cup will be staged in New Zealand and Australia for the first time since 1992, when Pakistan won the title. Expect to see some clean hitting and high strike rates in conditions that are expected to give the bat slight advantage over the ball. Here are five players to watch:AB de Villiers (South Africa):The South Africa captain is clearly the most feared batsman heading into the World Cup. The versatile de Villiers sounded a warning to bowlers around the world as he recorded the fastest ever century in a limited-overs international during a breathtaking knock of 149 off just 44 deliveries against the West Indies at Johannesburg last month.De Villiers reached triple figures from just 31 deliveries, after setting the record for the fastest ODI half-century – his 50 coming off 16 balls. He also equalled Indian batsman Rohit Sharma’s record of 16 sixes in an ODI innings.The kind of incredible impact de Villiers can have is gauged from the fact that he had walked in to bat only in the 39th over. His ability to judge the ball and move into position quickly gives him a vast advantage over other batsmen, particularly with the restriction of only four fielders outside the 30-yard circle through the 50 overs.The top-ranked ODI batsman goes into the World Cup with two centuries and six half-centuries in the last 11 games.He can sweep, reverse-sweep or hit pre-meditated heaves to the leg side – even to deliveries pitched outside the off, irrespective of the ball speed.advertisementWith second-ranked ODI batsman Hashim Amla batting before him, there is every chance de Villiers will get opportunities to start whacking the ball straight away. De Villiers, who has 7,459 runs from 179 ODIs at an average of over 52, has scored three centuries in his two previous World Cups, including back-to-back hundreds in 2011.If South Africa are to end their drought in World Cup knockout matches, much will depend on de Villiers.Virat Kohli (India):The fact that all-time great Viv Richards has described the Indian vice-captain as “already legendary” is a fair indication of the potential Kohli carries into his second World Cup. Kohli is a proven performer in all forms of the game and recently notched four centuries in a four-Test series in Australia.He failed to get into double-figures in four innings during an ODI tri-series that followed the Test series, as captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tinkered with the batting order, although Kohli can control any game from his customary No. 3 position.Kohli was a youngster at the last World Cup but still tallied 282 runs including a century and a half-century.With the likes of retired great Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh not around, Kohli is expected to take command of the batting lineup. Kohli has the ability to dominate bowling without taking undue risks and that can prove vital on the grounds of Australia and New Zealand which can be a challenge for batsmen from the sub-continent.Though the team also boasts the only two-time double-century maker Rohit Sharma and acclaimed finisher Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the batting line-up, Kohli remains the vital cog in the wheel with his consistency and ability to blend caution with aggression.Kohli, ranked No. 3 among ODI batsmen, has slammed 21 centuries in only 150 ODIs at an average of almost 52.Mitchell Johnson (Australia):Mitchell Johnson is not the type to worry about exactly when he enters the attack. Be it with the new ball or first change, the left-arm paceman can change the complexion of a game rapidly with his menacing blend of express pace and aggression.Johnson can not only swing the ball late but also extract sharp bounce to unsettle the best of batsmen. He has proved himself in crunch situations with both bat and ball in Tests and ODIs.He was recently out of action for a month due to a hamstring injury but returned in style for a tri-series final against England, when his three-wicket burst put Australia on track for an easy win.That spell came after left-armer Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood were used to open the bowling. Home conditions and the aim of regaining the Cup should be incentive enough for Johnson to be at his best.Johnson, who has 224 wickets and 920 runs with a highest score of 73 not out from 145 ODIs, will be part of the World Cup for the third time – though he did not get to play a game in 2007 when Australia won in the West Indies.advertisementIn 2011, he took 10 wickets from seven matches, including four-wicket hauls against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.Brendon McCullum (New Zealand):The Black Caps captain could be the best batsman on view if he can even get close to the form he hit in Tests last year, when he scored more than 1,000 runs. McCullum became the first New Zealander to score a Test triple-century and also notched two double-hundreds to join a select band to have done so. He capped the year with another huge knock of 195 off 134 balls against Sri Lanka.Co-hosting the World Cup also presents McCullum the opportunity to ensure people remember him as much for his ODI efforts as for his Test and Twenty20 performances.McCullum, who also kept wickets until recently, is among the most feared T20 batsmen. His lofted shots, scoops and reverse-sweeps make him a tough customer. He is the only player to have scored two T20 international centuries and also the highest scorer in the format with 2,105 runs from 70 games.McCullum averages over 35 in T20s but only around 30 in ODIs – a figure he’s determined to improve. In three previous World Cups, he has 414 runs from 25 games with only one century.Shahid Afridi (Pakistan):The veteran allrounder will take on extra responsibility in a squad missing the off-spin of Saeed Ajmal and useful allrounder Mohammad Hafeez. Ajmal has withdrawn from the team while Hafeez will not be able to bowl, leaving Afridi to lead the spin attack with his fast leg-spinners.While the focus will be on seam bowlers in Australia and New Zealand, leg-spinners can always benefit from the bounce. Afridi is capable of creating and seizing opportunities and was the joint highest-wicket taker at the 2011 World Cup with 21 wickets.A former record-holder for the fastest ODI century – off 37 balls – Afridi has failed to notch a half-century in four previous World Cups but he is the kind of player who can inspire his lineup.He gave glimpses of his erstwhile batting with two decisive last-over sixes against India in last year’s Asia Cup and more recently during a half-century against New Zealand. Afridi, who led Pakistan to the semifinals last time, has announced that he will retire from ODIs after the World Cup and wants to go out on a high.last_img read more
