You Can Learn to Speak Dothraki Someday, high schoolers may have to decide if they should fulfill their language requirement with Spanish or Dothraki. The words spoken by Khal Drogo and the rest of the Dothraki people on Game of Thrones is a conlang (constructed language), as this TED Ed video explains. Dothraki joins the ranks of other conlangs like Klingon (Star Trek), Na’vi (Avatar) and Elvish (Lord of the Rings). A conlang is defined by its system of grammar, not its lexicon — meaning that any aspiring super-nerd can't just boast a complete command of Klingon by learning a bunch of words. So if you're a geek who really wants to level up and learn Elvish, or to converse with the Dothraki horde, you have to put in the time.

Trastornos ansiosos Clínicamente la angustia es el miedo sin saber a qué. El miedo normal es una reacción con componentes psicológicos y corporales. El miedo y la angustia forman parte de la respuesta normal del individuo, con reacciones necesarias para la supervivencia. Como en todas las neurosis, una reacción que originalmente es normal y útil para la supervivencia se desvirtúa al aumentar tanto en intensidad y frecuencia que, en lugar de ser un mecanismo defensivo provechoso, se convierte en una fuente de sufrimiento y de incapacidad. Si esta respuesta desproporcionada se hace crónica estamos ante una neurosis de ansiedad o neurosis de angustia. Las neurosis de angustia suelen predominar en el sexo femenino y su edad de inicio es entre los 20 y los 40 años. La angustia puede aparecer de dos formas: en un estado permanente de ansiedad o en ráfagas de angustia, separadas por intervalos de aparente normalidad. Crisis de angustia Consiste en la aparición repentina de la ansiedad en su máxima intensidad. Fobias

Nathan Romero Arkitekter, Ignacio Fos Pacheco — Extension Tønder City Hall © Nathan Romero Arkitekter, Ignacio Fos Pacheco. Published on July 05, 2013. “Context: playing it different” A circular building has no facade, or better: it only has one facade. Our extension however offers two very different readings depending on whether we are approaching it from the north, the city or from the open fields. From the city, it is only its particular geometry that reveals the building: both in extension and volume, the new building hardly shows behind the old city hall. In the distance, coming from the west (the festival) or from the river, we were aiming at readability and clarity. The horizontal composition of the existing Halldor Gunnløgsson city hall (1970) is dynamized and strengthened by the cylindrical shape of the extension. As it did to Gunnløgsson, the presence of the river has guided us: the naves of his building seem to be displaced by the Vidå´s meander. Description.

ARCHIST: Illustrations of Famous Art Reimagined as Architecture Federico Babina has unveiled yet another playful collection of architecturally inspired illustrations: Derived from the ”symbiotic relationship and implicit partnership” between art and architecture, Archist reinterprets the expressive language and aesthetic of prominent artists as built form. “Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other, the definition and function of the architecture are changing constantly with the development of contemporary art,” described Babina. “I took pleasure imagining architecture steeped of art, designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist’s language.” Just imagine, what if Dalí designed a house or Miró a museum? See what Babina envisioned, after the break… View more of Babina’s imaginative illustrations, here.
