"The fate of all those apple varieties is not uncommon. "In the last century, nearly 75% of our agricultural crops have disappeared. They're simply gone. Today, farmers primarily grow 12 crops. And of these, we mainly eat potatoes, rice, corn, and wheat."" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Why the OED are right to purge nature from the dictionary - http://www.theguardian.com/science...
Why the OED are right to purge nature from the dictionary
If the pen is mightier than the sword then words are probably more lethal than bullets, and that makes Oxford Dictionaries the most powerful military force in the world. This metaphor helps explain two things: why I’m not a very successful writer, and why a group of authors are so concerned that a variety of words relating to nature were culled from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. - Halil from Bookmarklet
the job of a dictionary is to document words and usage, not dictate them. The Oxford English Dictionary is a historical record, analyzing contemporary writing and parsing the results according to strict guidelines to provide its users with an accurate depiction of how language is used. - Halil
Attacking a dictionary for removing these words is like punching your thermometer when it’s too cold, or shouting at journalists because you don’t like the news from Syria. They’re simply reflecting reality, and if that troubles you then maybe you should be out confronting these issues in the real world rather than in the pages of a book. It isn’t the job of the OUP to get kids to play outside: that’s called parenting, and maybe that’s where campaigners should be focusing their attention. - Halil
Wow. Looking at the list of culled words, I'm a little surprised. There are still plenty of words left in that junior dictionary that are used far less than words like fern, acorn, adder, or dandelion. But then, maybe we need to take a hard look at what we're raising our kids with that these kinds of words fall to the wayside while tech words take their place. - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm surprised to see acorn and dandelion dropped given their ubiquity. - John (bird whisperer)
Using Google's ngram viewer to state one's case seems inaccurate at best. Google Books has a fairly low percentage of total published works scanned. Besides which, published works leave a whole lot of spoken and class work language unrepresented. I am certain my six and twelve year old nieces have used the words acorn, beech, dandelion, fern, heron, ivy, mistletoe, otter, pasture and willow, and probably a couple more, and not rarely. - Michael W. May
Whoa. This is all kinds of messed up. Our kids use those words plenty. - Big Joe Silence from iPod
Wait, wait, wait. They took me out of the dictionary? WTF. But seriously, at least half of those are common words. I don't understand this at all. - Heather

The Time Nature And Racism Teamed Up To Wipe Out A Whole Town http://flip.it/S9S8Q
In the 1940s, Vanport, Ore. was the center of a booming World War II-era shipyard industry, quickly becoming the second largest city in the state. But both its origin, and its destruction, came about thanks to the racially discriminatory housing practices of neighboring Portland across the river.

As I brushed Emily's hair this morning, she said to me "Now I will be beautiful like you, Mummy." <3 #fb
I'm wearing a t-shirt that's been slept in, no bra or pants, messy greasy bed hair, oily spotty face, huge eye bags, I probably smell, and she still thinks I'm beautiful. - Melly
That's because she (like kids everywhere) can see your inner self. - Bren from iPhone

I'm seeing it in her already Stephan and it makes me sad. She will put a dress on and say "Now I'm pretty", like she wasn't before. - Melly

Compound from Chinese medicinal herb shows promise for Ebola | Reuters
"A drug derived from a Chinese medicinal herb is showing promise for combating Ebola infection, effectively imprisoning the virus inside cells so it cannot do its usual damage, scientists said on Thursday. The researchers said the compound, called tetrandrine, blocked infection of human white blood cells in lab dishes and prevented Ebola virus disease in lab mice. More research is needed, including monkey studies, before it can be tested in people, they added." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

No, I like them! Any larger and they get heavier but any smaller and they lose detail. I would like one slightly larger one with a leaf for a necklace. DM me details on price if you like! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from FFHound(roid)!

It seems that Jess Ainscough, The Wellness Warrior, has succumbed to cancer aged 30. It's sad but I'm also so fucking angry.
If you want to turn your back on conventional medicine, fine. But to turn your journey into a business, let people believe you are cured, hide the fact that your cancer has furiously returned until it's impossible to do so any longer, and take people's money the whole time? No. - Melly
And then at the end she did a 180 and started working with an oncologist again. Sadly it was way too late. I do hope the modern medicine she spurned was able to bring her physical comfort and relief from her pain in her final days. - Melly
I was unfamiliar with who she was, so I had to do some reading on her. Yeah I agree that it is not cool to profit on a whack "healing" system that you know personally doesn't work. I think she was in a terrible situation having to choose alternative medicine versus having her entire arm + shoulder/shoulder blade removed (the first step in treating the rare cancer she had) , especially... more... - Chris Topher
When she made the announcement her condition had worsened and she was seeing an oncologist again, some of her own fans/followers turned on her, basically telling her she was doing it wrong, and if she just tried harder and stuck more closely to the Gerson regimen she'd beat it. I have no doubt many of these same people will think it was the end stage medical treatment that killed her... more... - Melly
I also find it strange that all her social media accounts etc have disappeared. She had such a massive following, and now they've all been left in the dark. - Melly
But it's sad, sad, sad. - Melly
I feel like when it comes to the various "healing" methods, they all just lump every kind of cancer into one sickness and try to "treat" it as a whole, regardless of where it is, what kind it is, how aggressive it is, etc. I agree though, it is sad. - Chris Topher
My view is very much biased due to what my MIL went through after her MND diagnosis, I fully admit that. Her experience made me aware that this kind of thing went on. If someone wants to use these kind of therapies, that's their choice. But they are too often peddled as cures and successful treatments. Caveat emptor, I guess. - Melly
