Do's and Don'ts for bipolar friends When someone is depressed, it is difficult for them, but also difficult for family and friends to know what to say and do. Below is a list of suggestions that I hope you will find helpful. Do learn everything you can about this disorder. The more you know the better equipped you will be to know what to expect. Do realize I am angry and frustrated with the disorder, NOT with you. Do let me know you are available to help me when I ask. Do understand why I cancel plans, sometimes at the last minute.

Do continue to invite me to all the activities. Do feel that you have the right to ask about my doctor or therapist appointments...but DON'T ask me if I'm taking my medications if I'm legitimately upset about something. Do continue to call me, even when I only seem to want a brief conversation. Do send cards, notes, and other reminders of our friendship or relationship. Do offer me lots of hugs, encouragement, and love, even when I seem to withdraw.

Let them eat cake. "Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was made from dough enriched with butter and eggs, making it more expensive than bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess's obliviousness as to the condition of the people. Enfin je me rappelai le pis-aller d’une grande princesse à qui l’on disait que les paysans n’avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit : Qu’ils mangent de la brioche.[2] Finally I recalled the stopgap solution of a great princess who was told that the peasants had no bread, and who responded: "Let them eat brioche. " Rousseau does not name the "great princess" and he may have invented the anecdote, as Confessions was, on the whole, a very unreliable autobiography.[3] Attribution[edit] However, there is no evidence that Queen Marie-Antoinette ever uttered this phrase.

Apostrophes are those little curved marks you see hanging from certain letters. They look harmless enough, so why do even well educated people throw them where they don't belong and leave them out where they're needed? Until apostrophes disappear from English altogether, you can take one step toward apostrophe reform by perfecting the art of showing possession. Most other languages are smarter than English. To show possession in French, for example, you say the pen of my aunt the letters of the lovers the fine wines of that corner bar and so on. My aunt's pen the lovers' letters that corner bar's fine wines All of these phrases include nouns that express ownership.

Ownership for singles Here's the bottom line: To show possession by one owner, add an apostrophe and the letter s to the owner: the dragon's burnt tooth (the burnt tooth belongs to the dragon) Lulu's pierced tooth (the pierced tooth belongs to Lulu) the sharp tooth of the crocodile = the crocodile's sharp tooth and so on.

Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained. Hippocrates: Because of an excess of light pink gooey stuff in its pancreas. Jacques Derrida: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD!

Hello. J. L. Austin. John Langshaw "J. L. " Austin (26 March 1911 – 8 February 1960) was a British philosopher of language. He is remembered primarily as the developer of the theory of speech acts.[1] Prior to Austin, the attention of linguistic and analytic philosophers had been directed almost exclusively to statements, assertions, and propositions — to linguistic acts that (at least in theory) have truth-value.

This led to problems when analyzing certain types of statements, for example in determining the truth conditions for such statements as "I promise to do so-and-so. " Austin pointed out that we use language to do things as well as to assert things, and that the utterance of a statement like "I promise to do so-and-so" is best understood as doing something — making a promise — rather than making an assertion about anything. Life[edit] The second son of Geoffrey Langshaw Austin (1884–1971), an architect, and his wife Mary Bowes-Wilson (1883–1948), Austin was born in Lancaster. Work[edit] According to JL.

One of the most asked questions that we get at english4today.com is about the placement of the apostrophe for possessives. This is a 'young' blog so I'm going to answer it here for Trish Upham from Australia who writes: I am a Virtual Assistant working with lawyers and regularly come across the problem of multiple possessives in legal documents.

For instance, when a group of people is buying a company, none of us can agree on the correct way to type something like "Smith, Dunn, & Bradstreet's ownership". Or should it be "Smith's, Dunn's, and Bradstreet's"??? I would REALLY appreciate some expert opinion on this. Thanks in anticipation! Starting with your question first, Trish, the rule is that For joint ownership, show possession only on the last noun.So your second example,'Smith, Dunn, & Bradstreet's ownership', is correct.

Some other rules for the possesive apostrophe are: For singular and plural nouns that do not end in -s, form the possessive byadding -'s. Hope that has helped Trish. Einstein for everyone.

Answered. Do astronauts age more slowly? Image credit: NASA/Sandra Joseph and Kevin O'Connell Nov. 16, 2009. Downloaded from Dec 26 2011 How can special relativity know that these effects will happen? At first this seems impossible. What about another observer that chases after the light signal at, say, half the speed of light. How can that be? So rapidly moving clocks slow. Can a finite universe have no edge? Contrary to appearances, this is not a medieval woodcut, but a 19th century wood engraving mimicking the medieval style.

What is this question asking? Can both be possible at the same time? Image credit: NASA Can time have a beginning? 2. 35 Inspiring Quotes from Albert Einstein & Always Well Within - StumbleUpon. Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955), the famous theoretical physicist, developed the theory of relativity and is considered the father of modern physics. The nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer shared his impressions of Einstein by saying, “He was almost wholly without sophistication and wholly without worldliness . . .

There was always with him a wonderful purity at once childlike and profoundly stubborn.” Due to his brilliance Einstein was often called upon to offer opinions on topics beyond the realm of physics; thus the wide range of inspired quotations. “Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” “Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.” “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” “Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.” Author Shel Silverstein Quote There Is A Voice Inside Of You That Whispers All Day Long.
