Britain’s Collins Dictionary Declares “NFT” Word Of The Year 2021

It’s hard to believe now, but it was only this March that Beeple sold his original non-fungible token artwork for $69 million, setting off the NFT madness. Collins reported that it’s one of the few words that’s “broken through the COVID noise,” with usage up 11,000%. – The Guardian

Collins and Bilge—It Takes Skills and Time

Intersectionality (2016) Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge p. 116-123—on Hip Hop as youth culture One point of affinity here with "the neoliberal status quo" (117) is this: art is worthy of mere mention only in the context of a (very questionable) theory of youth . Do any adults make Hip Hop?! Does their work aspire or achieve in simlar or different manners? Youth "rarely have the skills and time to get elected to public office" (117), but somehow these limitations are not only surmountable...

Collins and Bilge—The Applied Focus and Its Discontents

Intersectionality (2016) Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge p. 37—"To varying degrees, scholars and practitioners in social work, criminology, public health, law, and education recognize that knowledge production in their respective fields cannot be separated from professional practices. ... Because they straddle scholarship and practice, academic disciplines with a strong clinical or applied focus have been especially receptive to intersectional frameworks. Intersectionality often finds a we...

Ireland Is One Country That’s Done Well For Classical Music Online

Or so says pianist Finghin Collins, who’s also artistic director of Music for Galway and the New Ross Piano Festival. Collins: “Ireland has done extremely well in the arts, in the sense that many, many classical music organisations, and others, have pivoted very quickly into the online space. If I speak to my colleagues in France, Germany, Switzerland, continental Europe, they haven’t. … We really managed in August, September, October to get ourselves into this online space where we were able t...

November linkfest

It’s Word of the Year season, and two British dictionaries are leading the pack. Collins picked lockdown – a word we threw around here in the US but never experienced the way they did in the UK and elsewhere. (A friend of mine is literally confined to her London apartment after spending a month in France: she can’t go outdoors at all.) And Oxford Languages, publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, chose a phenomenon instead of a single word: the impact of the COVID-19 on language. “What struck the...

When All the Zingers Were Fit to Print

Andrew Wheeler confirmed as new EPA administrator

Andrew Wheeler is taking over the reigns as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Wheeler, who used to work as a lobbyist for the coal industry, became the 15th EPA administrator after a Senate vote confirmed his appointment. Shortly after the vote, Wheeler took to Twitter to post his thoughts on becoming the new EPA administrator. Wheeler thanked several politicians for helping him obtain the appointment and vowed to move forward with President Donald Trump’s agen...

OED’s 2018 Word Of The Year: ‘Toxic’

“The word was chosen less for statistical reasons, [the U.S. head of Oxford Dictionaries] said, than for the sheer variety of contexts in which it has proliferated, from conversations about environmental poisons to laments about today’s poisonous political discourse to the #MeToo movement, with its calling out of ‘toxic masculinity.'” The runners-up were “gaslighting” and “incel.” (Last week, rival dictionary Collins declared its word of the year to be “single-use.”)

'Single-use' is announced as the Word of the Year 2018

Collins Dictionary has announced its choice for 2018 Word of the Year — single-use. This term describes items, often plastic, that are made to be used just once before they are thrown away. The frequent use of these items has been blamed for damaging the environment and negatively affecting the food chain. Since 2013, use of the word has increased fourfold with a rise in public awareness thanks to news stories, images of plastic items adrift in oceans and the global campaign to reduce the proli...

Edible plants surround the curvaceous Barangaroo House in Australia

Completed just last year, the eye-catching Barangaroo House has already become a visual landmark for the inner-city suburb of Barangaroo in Sydney, Australia. The competition-winning design is the work of Australian architecture firm Collins and Turner, which created the sculptural building to house a contemporary restaurant and bar of the same name. Located near the waterfront in a high pedestrian-trafficked area, the curvaceous building mimics the appearance of three stacked bowls rimmed with...

Wintersmiths' Crystal Clear Sphere Ice Maker Is a Kickstarter Hit

For many, an ice cube is simply a tool to help keep your drinks cool, but to professional and passionate home mixologists it can be a creative opportunity. This is one of the reasons why four years ago, brothers Chris & Pat Little started prototyping models for the perfect ice mold that not only would create a perfectly spherical ice ball, but also one that was entirely transparent. What started as a fun science experiment between two brothers quickly turned into a commercially viable business c...

The First Of 2017's 'Word Of The Year' Winners Is Here (And It's One We've Heard Too Much Of)

"Collins Dictionary's lexicographers, who monitor the 4.5bn-word Collins corpus, said that usage of the term had increased by 365% since 2016. The phrase, often capitalised, is frequently a feature of Donald Trump's rhetoric." (Can you guess it?)

Measure For Measure - A cup more than half empty

Reviewed by Judd Hollander Elevator Repair Service, known for taking literary classics and adapting them to the stage - with results ranging from somewhat interesting to completely astonishing - makes their first foray into the world of William Shakespeare with a production of Measure For Measure.

An Exercise in Trust is the Big Reason why Nourish Snacks Look So So Good

Snacking is usually put into two categories: “punishingly healthy or junk,” Tom Wilder of Collins said. So when faced with the challenge of designing Joy Bauer’s line of snacks, Nourish—which are both healthy and incredibly delicious—Collins wanted the packaging to reflect that.

Seeing Joy by the Fountains

Joy by the Fountains 11×14″ oil on canvas   What I brought on a bike This painting was completed last week during a paint-out I had in Ft. Collins.  There was an art show usually put on by local artists in the town.  What I didn’t know was that there were two locations the show was in.  I was at the old town square, the heartbeat of Ft. Collins.  I soon found out that one other artist showed up.  But today wasn’t meant to be for sales or exposure. It was the coming out of my easel display.  ...

Trump breaks campaign pledge by asking Congress for money to build Mexico border wall

In a direct contradiction to his campaign promise, President-Elect Donald Trump recently said that he will ask congress for funds to build a wall across the U.S. - Mexico border. The move breaks with Trump's repeated campaign promise that he would make Mexico pay for the wall by October 2017. Meanwhile, Mexico's leaders have maintained they will, under no circumstances, pay for the wall. CNN reports that Trump’s transition team signaled on Friday to congressional Republican leaders that he wo...

Houdini's big secret: the sidekick who was more skilled than his master

When Houdini got lowered into water, who padlocked his trunks? A British carpenter and locksmith called Jim Collins. Now a magician has written a play about the forgotten hero of escapology‘There are,” says Paul Zenon, “only so many permutations of a playing card vanishing. I wanted more of a creative challenge.” The magician is explaining why he is breaking into acting, with a one-man show about escapologist Harry Houdini – or rather about his assistant, Jim Collins. He insists that the new wor...

10 Musical Theatre Titles We Take for Granted

Because I was practically singing show tunes coming out of my mother's uterus, I never really stopped to think about a lot of things in classic musicals. Because I first encountered them, got to know them, then memorized them while I was too young to really think about them in any serious way, it didn't occur to me until much later that there were things there worth thinking about...For instance... My Fair Lady I grew up thinking this was kind of a dumb title for a show, if we're being honest...
