Smartphone og app er eksempler på ”ikke-danske” ord, der er blevet en selvfølgelig del af det danske sprog. Samtidig forsvinder andre ord. Næsten ingen yngre mennesker ved, hvad en bødker laver, hvad en nefalygte er for noget, eller hvad en gylp skal gøre godt for. Hvem husker de stille piger? Og hvad vil det sige at være bjergsom eller undseelig? Ord og vendinger kommer og går. En gang vidste de fleste, hvem cirkusministeren var, men nu er forestillingen slut. Til gengæld kan man drikke sig i hegnet, hvis man da ikke er arbejdsramt. Betydninger ændrer sig. Hvem husker fluesmækkeren som betalingsmiddel? Ændringer af udtalen kan skabe afstand mellem generationerne; der har nærmest rejst sig et oprør mod de yngre skuespilleres hængemuledansk. Det er lidt awweligt.Medierne er ved at afskaffe samtaler til fordel for forudsigelige verbale hanekampe, og mange pædagoger forskanser sig bag stadig skiftende modeudtryk; snart har de deres læringsrum helt for sig selv!I Dansk i skred fører Jørn Lund muntert og skarpsindigt sine læsere gennem mange forskellige sproglige landskaber, fra Karen Blixens Afrika til magtens korridorer, fra erhvervslivets bonede gulve til krejlernes kræmmermarkeder og atleternes arenaer.

Har du overvejet at leje et værelse ud i dit hus? Eller at lease en fed bil? Ved du, hvad al virakken med taxaselskabet Uber egentlig handler om?Deleøkonomien er over os.

Man ønskede at eje flere forskellige biler til forskellige formål, eje huse/lejligheder rundt om i verdenen: i storbyer; under sydens sol og i bjerge med skiløjper: Ens velstand blev målt på, hvor meget man ejede. Sådan er det ikke længere."

Læseren kan lade sig inspirere af hver artikels unikke perspektiv på skrivelyst og læring, men også af artiklernes form og udtryk.Skrivelyst og læring henvender sig til lærerstuderende, lærere, læsevejledere, læsekonsulenter og alle andre, der beskæftiger sig med eller er optaget af børns læsning og skrivning samt skrivelystens betydning for børns læring."... Der er noget for alle, der beskæftiger sig med skriveprocesser ... Bogen bør læses af alle undervisere, der arbejder med kommunikative processer, både konkret som dansklærere men også inden for andre områder, hvor der arbejdes skriftsprogmæssigt ..."Lise Christensen, Læsepædagogen nr. 4/2012.

It is my first so perhaps a little rough around the edges, ~ A scientifically religious and spiritual approach to our reality and how our perspective and thoughts create the environments of our social and physical humanity. including my thesis on the evolution of the big bang and life's energy cycles through eternity. To change your perspective is to change your life. The value of having a positive and progressive one is that the journey becomes more joyful and compassionate along the way. Humanity creates the mental and physical environments that we all collectively coexist in thus we must individually but collectively create a proper perspective and attitude before we can effectively make change in a constantly positive and beneficial direction. The key to happiness and proper attitude is our personal perspective, This only you can adjust. Compassion shown to another person is reflected back at you through karma and society. The real battle is with ourselves. When we can admit our own faults, we can solve the issues that affect our destination effectively and not arrogantly. By understanding the nature of matter and creation we can logically understand the connection between things that exist in our environment. From this knowledge of a continuous connection we can solve the problems of humanity, with Compassion, Physics, Logic, Mathematics, Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Theology in hand. We can do this as well as keeping our Equal rights to believe in our individual Religions. Evolution and Ecology are constantly advancing our practical applications in science and health. We have and will progress relevantly to the speed at which we can discover ourselves. Beneficial steps towards the progress of humanity and our future are continuously being made. But at times it seems the right hand does not keep the left up to date. This may, or may not be an intentional lack of control. But, It is thoughtless, and slows humanities progress no matter the cause. We should all work as a team and pass the ball around, so that everyone can enjoy the game. If you know what I mean.~<3~ People Are free individuals with the freewill of choice and determination at their grasp. If we can work together by our own choice while correcting our past errors, Both in our human knowledge and in society. Then this will ultimately contribute to a better future for humanity by changing our attitude towards life. The knowledge of our interconnected unity, The living universe around us, And those within it provide us the foundation for improving the ecology and life on Earth. Our preservation of Nature is critical for our future and survival. By knowing our true nature we realize that we are a part of nature and the ecology of life on earth. We then realize how important it is to reverse our current destruction of nature, and our environments. This is effectively destroying us and our future. The duality of emotional influence and personal perspective that lie within our path during the journey is something we all face. This is called life. If we keep a positive perspective within or mind then we can find the path enlightening along the way. The energy of our conscious thought can be applied in many ways. Memories and past experiences are just a couple. Time carries on while you are in thought. No matter where your head is, Your body is a reflection of reality. Time is the frequency of energy waves within our life that creates reality. The key is to enjoy not only the moment but the journey of life during the time you have as well.

This is the story of one womans courageous struggle against the relentless encroachment of darkness. Helen Harris, after a childhood marked by unplanned clumsiness, skinned knees, and being known as the class klutz, discovered she was a victim of retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a disease causing progressive blindness and having no known cure. Devastated by this prognosis of ever-growing darkness, this brave and stoic young girl determined nonetheless to make the most of her future.She was galvanized to furious activity, driven by anger at the abysmal absence of knowledge of RP in the medical community and, in fact, this world. But what could one woman do? Plenty. For someone with no experience in business, public relations, volunteerism, or recruitment, Helen Harris undertook to master them all. One lone woman with the mission to move the mountains of ignorance about a disease even Helen had never heard about, all the while trying to cope with the ever-growing darkness surrounding her and her sons. She came to know that RP was one of a family of related genetic diseases, one more terrifying than the other. These diseases, being of genetic origin, often strike multiple siblings in a family.This book will lead you through Helens amazing success in recruiting celebrities to their cause and shedding light into the darkness of RP, involving the medical world in the fight, and garnering support from the political world up to and including a president of the United States. Information on all the new technology that has been developed since Helens journey began are enclosed within the pages of the book.

The principal reason for my doing this project was simply because I wanted to do it! Ive long been interested in toponomy - the science of placenames - and until now, with the priviledge of retirement, was afforded the time to do it. It was mentally laborious, time consuming, ( a guesstimated 10,000 hours over a 6-year period), highly educational and greatly rewarding. I have always had an interest in dissecting things, analyzing them and then restructuring the information gathered into a new form with the hope of producing a pleasant result. In order to do this, I had some help. My best helpmates in gathering the information I sought were things seen on paper, not things seen on a screen. I feel good about the fact that I, coming from another era, did not employ any electronic means to accomplish the task. And it was all formed out with the use of an antiquated device known as a typewriter!My principal information buddies were the 2-volume U.S. Postal Service Zip Code and Post Office Directory, the 50-state Rand McNally road map inventory, and each states official road map. The indices to each of these individual road maps followed by a thorough hand-and-eye scanning of their surface provided the means to lift the names of these entries - nearly 22,000 of them!The names are a smattering of old names and new names, common names, usual names and unusual names but basically this is a study involving physical geography, with placenames formed from lots of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, and a few conjunctions. Its physical! Many of the placenames chosen for inclusion in this piece were chosen because they involved things essential to the early settlement and survival of this country.

Guilty as Charged!At one time or another all of us have been guilty of committing atleast one, and perhaps several, of the most common communicationfaux pas that are aptly illustrated in Paul Bovinos opus with a tooth,Hoots and Grunts.The author holds up the mirror, and it is impossible not to recognizeourselves as we interrupt, off er unsolicited opinions, use communicationdevices inappropriately, and unknowingly continue to tarnish ourverbal communication-the image of ourselves that we project, andconsequently, the depth of our relationships.As we learn through direct, sometimes somewhat caustically off eredexamples and anecdotes throughout the book, we come to realize thatvery often our communication slips are showing, and what comesfrom our mouths in the form of words and attitude can inadvertentlybe annoying, off -setting, and even a complete turn-off .While so many of Bovinos observations should ring a bell with mostif not all of us, Hoots and Grunts, with its own somewhat off beatstylings, off ers solutions for how much of the off ending behavior canbe refi ned, and even demonstrably rectified.Hoots and Grunts spares few words (and even fewer thoughts andopinions), and is, at its very least, pointed, and, at its extreme, biting. But the mirror doesnt lie, and aptly refl ects how we might be beingperceived and subsequently received by others; and, that there is alwaysroom for improvement, resulting in vastly better, and possibly evenprofound, communication.
Though I don't have legal clearance to give juicy details, through much incredible family dysfunction, both of my girls spent a significant amount of years in the custody of their grandmother.This precarious situation led me to, though court-appointed, at first, psychotherapy. Several years later of therapy led me to explore and process my own ambiguous childhood that was riddled with sexual abuse. This exploration spawned another realm of self-discovery that led to an extreme appreciation for radical forgiveness (see next section), for which I am eternally grateful, for the maturation of my own emotional health.The realm of emotional-processing and self-discovery, along with the deisre to leave a by-product of said disocvery to my kids (& others) re: the value in character/value building and steering one's own moral compass, that they may have missed out on, is the largest inspiration, for writing this book.The contents of these pages represent the conversations, experiences and the transference of knowledge of your mothers morals, standards and values via tough and expressed love that we have had up until your 18th birthday(s) respectively. I also want to selfishly, prepare and/or reserve my inevitable place in heaven, by fulfilling my charge as a mom. It is my fervent hope and prayer that every person, who has experienced a fragmented relationship with his/her parent/guardian, can gain enough practical and spiritual advice offered here, to build their own moral compass to live their lives fully and completely in love. Take the necessary steps to heal your relationship(s); it is possible and worth it. When I make the transition/die, dont cry (much) because Im gone; smile in gratitude for having had me in your life for whatever time we had together. I maintain a posture of gratitude for everything and everybody--whether positive or negative. The positive people and events, have created an enormous and expansive sense of gratitude (including, but certainly not limited to, my readers); the negative people and events, have spawned an enormous and expansive perplexity of forgiveness and love. I hope Ive completed my plight as Gods charge as a mother to my own children and many others as well.
