    American Thinker ^ | Dec. 23, 2016 | Dennis Lund
    During a performance at Yoshi’s in Oakland, the late legendary Texas wordsmith Guy Clark asked the question: Is there a synonym for ‘Thesaurus’? He added that he never found one, but the word ‘lexicon’ was about as close as he could find. The lexicon, the words and phrases used on a daily basis, constantly evolves as words may go in and out of vogue. There is no decisive governing body determining which words to use or not use, but I sometimes wish there were. Words often need to be dropped, either from over usage, laziness, or because of misrepresentations of...

    Smart women don’t show cleavage — or at least that’s what one high-powered Manhattan law firm is telling its female employees. The legal firm Clifford Chance sent female associates a bizarre memo advising them to stop giggling, squirming and showing cleavage while speaking in public, irking female employees who called the tips sexist, the legal news website Abovethelaw.com reports.

    I have long held suspicions that the Like button on Facebook is not your friend.I’m sure you’ve seen some of the pictures floating around Facebook that seem to make no sense. There seems to be no end to the litany of crossword puzzles asking you to “type the first word you see.” Maybe you’ve seen a picture of… well, almost anything that might elicit a reaction, asking you to “share if you agree, Like of you don’t.”How about the innumerable political posts, calling for impeachment or support? Are all those posts really put out there by people who care? Then,...

    As debate about whether ObamaCare is a good idea continues, rejecting four major misconceptions about healthcare is crucial to any chance of our eventually emerging with a better system. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare decision, we must refocus. The Court’s decision was never about whether ObamaCare was a good idea, only about whether it was constitutional. The Court found a convoluted way to uphold the law.That’s done, but the debate on whether ObamaCare’s provisions are good ideas will continue. To date, this debate has been unable to shake off a lot of mythology—things believed about healthcare and...

    Before you click that "like" button in Facebook, you should know that a judge in federal court asserted that this is not protected under the 1st Amendment. In what boils down to a wrongful termination case (Bland vs. Roberts) brought before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, four former employees of a sheriff up for reelection claimed that they were fired after, among other things, he discovered that they "liked" his opponent's campaign page on Facebook. "According to the Plaintiffs, after learning of their support of their opponent, the Sheriff called a meeting in which he...

    We’ll leave you to decide for yourself what you think of the political analysis Meghan McCain — daughter of Sen. John — offered on MSNBC Wednesday night with Lawrence O’Donnell. In short: O’Donnell was trying to convince her that everyone hates Mitt Romney, but McCain explained that she really doesn’t like the “moron” Rick Santorum. She followed that up by saying what she would have done had Sen. McCain, who just endorsed Romney, endorsed Santorum.

    Dolphins "talk" to each other, using the same process to make their high-pitched sounds as humans, according to a new analysis of results from a 1970s experiment. The findings mean dolphins don't actually whistle as has been long thought, but instead rely on vibrations of tissues in their nasal cavities that are analogous to our vocal cords.

    Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter. "They just said 'Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,'" said Perry, 22, who was attacked at Kilbourn Reservoir Park over the Fourth of July weekend. Though Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn noted Tuesday that crime is colorblind, he called the Sunday night looting of a convenience store near the park and beatings of a group of people who had gone to the park disturbing, outrageous and barbaric.

You know as in the like icon on the popular Palo Alto-based social-networking site. "To me it is important to give my children names that are not used anywhere else, at least not in Israel," the father told the German Press Agency dpa."If once people gave Biblical names and that was the icon, then today [the Facebook Like] is one of the most famous icons in the world." Like is Lior and Vardit Adler's third child. The other two are...

    INN ^ | 4/4/10 | Hana Levi Julian
    (IsraelNN.com) During the week of Passover, in which Jews are commanded to eat only matzoh – unleavened bread – one would be hard-pressed to find anything other than the flat, cracker-like wafers in any Jewish store in Israel. In the Passover Haggadah, which tells the story of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt, matzoh is described as the Bread of Affliction, because Jews had no time to allow the dough to rise properly for baking before fleeing their Egyptian taskmasters. In the Arab sector, however, – 20 percent of Israel's population -- Muslims and Christians are not obligated to observe Jewish...
