Ambiguous Sentences I came across this headline in the Wall Street Journal: Republicans Grill IRS Chief Over Lost Emails This type of sentence has great possibilities because of its two different interpretations: Republicans harshly question the chief about the emailsRepublicans cook the chief using email as the fuel It’s a perfect tool to: demonstrate careful reading, showcase the need for editing, and encourage creativity and divergent thinking. Even More Meanings The ambiguous headline took me back to my college days, when a professor shared this sentence: I saw a man on a hill with a telescope. It seems like a simple statement, until you begin to unpack the many alternate meanings: There’s a man on a hill, and I’m watching him with my telescope. See how many meanings your students can catch! More Examples Here are some other ambiguous sentences (more at this wikipedia page): We saw her duck. He fed her cat food. Look at the dog with one eye.

Meta viewport "width=device-width" sur iPad Bonjour, Voici ma situation : je viens créer une page dont la largeur par défaut est de 1060px, mais qui doit passer à une largeur de 100% sur les écrans de téléphone. Pour cela, j'ai ajouté à ma page la meta viewport suivante : Voici mon code html simplifié : <body><div class="content"><div class="inner clearfix"> Mon contenu </div></div></body> Et voici mon css simplifié : Et voici donc mon problème : en faisant ça, tout fonctionne très bien sur iPhone, mais ça ne fonctionne plus sur iPad : la largeur du site est alors bloquée à 768px (le reste de la largeur de ma page n'apparaît pas), la page ne s'adapte pas à l'écran de l'iPad. Avez-vous une solution qui me permettrait d'avoir un site adaptée au mobile sur les écrans de téléphone tout en ayant un site "classique" sur iPad (mais adapté à la taille de l'écran) ? Merci d'avance !

20 awesome examples of street art - StumbleUpon If you still need a proof that art can be found anywhere, those awesome examples of great street art should convince you. La melancolía en la literatura Seguramente la melancolía es uno de los sentimientos más presente en la literatura, hija de la nostalgia, prima de las pérdidas y hermana de la tristeza. La melancolía es un sentimiento difuso que no llega a ser dolor, ni tampoco alegría, es un híbrido entre el llanto y la risa y la protagonista en millones de relatos, poemas y novelas. En este artículo la buscaremos en algunos autores, intentaremos acercarnos a ella a través de obras que han marcado la historia de la literatura universal. Melancolía, tele y literatura Hace unos días me preguntaba por qué razón en la tele pasan tantas series de época: “Toledo”, “Águila Roja”, “Hispania”, “etc”. Sin embargo, cabe preguntarse ¿por qué tienen tanto éxito, incluso más que otras series ambientadas en nuestros días? La melancolía tiene una magia única que hace que al recuperar ciertas sensaciones de antaño, podamos renovar nuestro deseo de estar vivos. La melancolía es parte de nuestra historia y por ende no podía faltar en la literatura.

Prefix free: Break free from CSS vendor prefix hell! -prefix-free lets you use only unprefixed CSS properties everywhere. It works behind the scenes, adding the current browser’s prefix to any CSS code, only when it’s needed. The target browser support is IE9+, Opera 10+, Firefox 3.5+, Safari 4+ and Chrome on desktop and Mobile Safari, Android browser, Chrome and Opera Mobile on mobile. If it doesn’t work in any of those, it’s a bug so please report it. Just before you do, please make sure that it’s not because the browser doesn’t support a CSS3 feature at all, even with a prefix. In older browsers like IE8, nothing will break, just properties won’t get prefixed. Test the prefixing that -prefix-free would do for this browser, by writing some CSS below: Properties/values etc that already have a prefix won’t be altered. It’s not ideal, but it’s a solution, until a more intuitive way to deal with these cases is added in -prefix-free. Please note that in unsupported browsers like IE8, no such class will be added. Firefox (and IE?)
