How to write a speech for any occasion There’s nothing worse than staring at a blank screen and wondering how you’ll begin to write a speech. Oh wait, there is something worse: Staring at a blank screen and wondering how to start your speech—while your deadline is hanging over your head.

Avoir l'esprit de l'escalier - French Idiom Usage notes: The French expression avoir l’esprit de l’escalier refers to an inability to think of a witty comeback (or any sort of intelligent response) until it’s too late to be of any use. Esprit means wit, and escalier, or staircase, symbolizes your departure from the gathering where the response was needed. But you can also use this expression while still at a party; for example, if you come up with a response only after the topic has changed and it’s too late for you to make your oh-so-brilliant comment without looking foolish.
Eisenstein's montage theory Montage--juxtaposing images by editing--is unique to film (and now video). During the 1920s, the pioneering Russian film directors and theorists Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov demonstrated the technical, aesthetic, and ideological potentials of montage. The 'new media' theorist Lev Manovich has pointed out how much these experiments of the 1920s underlie the aesthetics of contemporary video. Eisenstein believed that film montage could create ideas or have an impact beyond the individual images. Two or more images edited together create a "tertium quid" (third thing) that makes the whole greater than the sum of its individual parts. Eisenstein's greatest demonstration of the power of montage comes in the "Odessa Steps" sequence of his 1925 film Battleship Potemkin.

French idioms Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary List of idioms in the French language: A B colonizing virtual reality Chris Chesher Introduction New technologies do not appear from nowhere as a mystical spark of inspiration from the mind of one individual. Nor are they inevitably accepted for their self-evident benefits. A technology emerges through a process involving broader cultural, linguistic, institutional and technological contexts. One clear illustration of this process can be drawn with the appearance of "virtual reality" in 1989, and the subsequent popularization of the idea through the media.
