Linguistic necromancy: a guide for the uninitiated | OUPblog
"It’s fairly common knowledge that languages, like people, have families. English, for instance, is a member of the Germanic family, with sister languages including Dutch, German, and the Scandinavian languages. Germanic, in turn, is a branch of a larger family, Indo-European, whose other members include the Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, and more), Russian, Greek, and Persian." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Being part of a family of course means that you share a common ancestor. For the Romance languages, that mother language is Latin; with the spread and then fall of the Roman empire, Latin split into a number of distinct daughter languages. But what did the Germanic mother language look like? Here there’s a problem, because, although we know that language must have existed, we don’t have any direct record of it." - Maitani
"The earliest Old English written texts date from the 7th century AD, and the earliest Germanic text of any length is a 4th-century translation of the Bible into Gothic, a now-extinct Germanic language. Though impressively old, this text still dates from long after the breakup of the Germanic mother language into its daughters." - Maitani

Judt on Brooks and Friedman’s role in pushing the criminal invasion of Iraq -
The late Tony Judt on David Brooks and Tom Friedman pushing the Iraq war: "catastrophic acquiescence in authority and plain, old-fashioned dumb ignorance masquerading as commentary. These were the circumstances which allowed a criminal political action to be pushed through the public space with very little opposition."

Israel wields ‘significant US domestic power’ to foil peace process — NY Review of Books -
The NY Review of Books leaves till the last paragraph of an article on the failed peace process that a "domestic" power of Israel in the U.S. foiled the efforts. When is the journal going to address the Israel lobby directly? are missing my pissing contest with Moser.

Where do American and Mooser rank respectively on the ethnocentrism index -- the number of times one mentions one's ethnic identity, issues, problems, conflicts and enemies? That's all you need to know about this subject. It's all about several thousand years of extreme ethnocentrism (often expressed as ethnic or ethno-religious nationalism). Some people are much more ethnocentric than others -- some people even make a messianic religion out of their self-obsessed ethnocentrism. - Sean McBride
lol-- Mooser keeps trying to get something out of me that he can condemn and wont accept my honesty about my views which I describe and admit are just my views, not expert opinion. He seems to want me to either totally 'condemn the Jews or totally 'capitulate to the or his Jewish view. - American
Hummmm...where do I rank on the ethnocentrism scale? I would say pretty low most of the time .Lately in keeping with my new theory of 'desensitizing' the Jewish - Gentile enemies thing I have been using my gentile hat to describe how we see certain Jews or certain statements made by Jews just to see if any commenters object to it -so far no one has...except Mooser that is. - American
Quite low, overall. Mooser, extremely high -- in fact, it is his only topic of interest. - Sean McBride
Sometimes one gets the impression that Jewishness is the condition of being recursively preoccupied with being Jewish -- it's not a religious or secular issue -- more a psychological issue. - Sean McBride

"When two friends created the site I Can Has Cheezburger?, in 2007, to share cat photos with funny, misspelled captions, it was a way of cheering themselves up. They probably weren’t thinking about long-term sociolinguistic implications. But seven years later, the “cheezpeep” community is still active online, chattering away in lolspeak, its own distinctive variety of English. lolspeak was meant to sound like the twisted language inside a cat’s brain, and has ended up resembling a down-South baby talk with some very strange characteristics, including deliberate misspellings (teh, ennyfing), unique verb forms (gotted, can haz), and word reduplication (fastfastfast).

""If you look around the world in 1900, and someone told you, 'Guess what the universal language of science will be in the year 2000', you would first of all laugh at them. It was obvious that no one language would be the language of science, but a mixture of French, German and English would be the right answer," says Princeton University's Rosengarten professor of modern and contemporary history Michael Gordin." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Bill Maher Isn’t a ‘Politically Incorrect’ Liberal, He’s Just a Bigot -
The talk-show host's bizarre unraveling over the past several years has been agonizing to watch. The post Bill Maher Isn’t a ‘Politically Incorrect’ Liberal, He’s Just a Bigot appeared first on The Intercept.
Maher is a liberal ziotard. The occasions that he's hosted Netanyahu on his show Real Time , it was a big show of loving affection, no critique for the Likud party told you he wasn't a serious person/moderator. - Chu_

# personality traits 1. abusive 2. arrogant 3. bullying 4. fanatical 5. hectoring 6. narcissistic 7. obscene 8. preening 9. self-congratulatory 10. strident - Sean McBride
At some point, Bill Maher jumped the shark. - Sean McBride
Bill Maher has been using libertarianism and liberalism as a cover to promote his real agenda -- neoconservatism and Likud Zionism. Many of us were taken in by the scam for quite some time. He's clever, but too much drug use has apparently made him incautious -- he's fully out of the closet. - Sean McBride
Bill Maher is a militant Jewish nationalist who hates Christians and Muslims. End of story. He is basically a Kahanist who specializes in especially vicious hate speech against his ethnic enemies. Forget about the liberalism and libertarianism -- that's a sham. - Sean McBride
Getting this guy into focus -- a challenge -- but worth the effort -- and quite a revelation once all the tumblers click into place. - Sean McBride

It should be embarrassing for most Jews, they are destroying their cred. I've stopped talking to a lot of pro-Zionist morons because they are warped/deranged when it comes to Israel.

Read the genocidal sermon a notable Atlanta rabbi gave this Rosh Hashanah -
Last Thursday Rabbi Shalom Lewis of Congregation Etz Chaim outside Atlanta gave what can only be understood as a call to genocide in his Rosh Hashanah sermon to welcome in the Jewish new year. The sermon calls for a war on Islam and Muslims worldwide. Lewis says a "holy crusade" against Islam is needed to"exterminate it utterly and absolutely." Lewis is no fringe figure. He has served this popular suburban congregation for nearly 40 years and was given a commendation by the US Congress
By now, my mind shouldn't be boggled by stories like this -- I've seen hundreds or thousands of them -- but it still is. He couldn't possibly have said that. - Sean McBride
Will the ADL strongly criticize Rabbi Shalom Lewis for trafficking in extreme hate speech -- genocidal hate speech? Watch and see. - Sean McBride
Make note that a week has gone by and not a peep from the ADL. Funny how the media largely ignored this as well. If it were Obama's Pastor Jeremiah Wright it would be front page news. But Jewish creeps like this rabbi get a pass. Rabbi Shalom Wright: “The fury of ultimate evil is upon us and we must act – not to contain it. Not to degrade it. Not to manage it. Not to tolerate it, but to exterminate it utterly and absolutely,” he added. Isn't this incitement to his Jewish congregants? - Chu_

I would "like" it but, as is typical with Google Trends, the total lack of a vertical scale means that we don't know whether "interest" dropped from "so little as to be not worth mentioning" to "even less" or something more interesting. - Walt Crawford
100 = its peak search value. 29 is 29% of peak. - Louis Gray
Louis: Well, sure, I can interpret from the graph that the current value is around one-third of the peak--but the peak doesn't *mean* anything, even if you label it "100." (Heck, you could just as easily label it 1,000,000: it would be precisely as meaningful.) - Walt Crawford
See, to me the concept that "interest has dropped 70% from its peak four weeks ago" is a meaningful stat in and of itself. I understand both sides (people wanting to know how many total searches there were, and Google not wanting to share that proprietary information) but I think all Amit was trying to get across with his post is that there is data to back the impression some of us have discussed here that interest is waning. - Stephen Mack
But if at the peak, interest was infinitesimal, what does it really mean that it dropped 70%? It doesn't seem like it would be statistically meaningful if that were the case. - Victor Ganata
Thank you, Victor. That's what I'm trying to say. It's like sales of ebooks going up 200% from one year to another when sales were $100 in the first year (a mythical example)--just having the numbers (Exploding sales! Up 200%!) doesn't mean very much, statistically or otherwise. - Walt Crawford
I understood that point when Walt first stated it. But Google is intentionally not populating the scale, presumably to keep the data proprietary. In this case, we know there was a flurry of interest in Ello, and we know it dropped. The scale doesn't need to be filled in for Amit's post to prove a point and to be interesting. - Stephen Mack
Oh, I agree it may be of interest, but I'm not certain it's meaningful. Without the absolute numbers, I really think it's impossible to interpret. #MoreStudyNeeded - Victor Ganata
If I knew it was 50 searches per minute, what would I conclude differently? What does 50 mean? - Amit Patel
You're right, even the absolute number isn't much context. Ideally, it would be in comparison with other dominant trends. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Looks like I got the URL wrong for being able to compare with other words and phrases. Try - Amit Patel
The comparative trends graph is at least somewhat meaningful; thanks, Stephen. - Walt Crawford

Fish failing to adapt to rising carbon dioxide levels in ocean | Environment
"Rising carbon dioxide levels in oceans adversely change the behaviour of fish through generations, raising the possibility that marine species may never fully adapt to their changed environment, research has found. The study, published in Nature Climate Change, found that elevated CO2 levels affected fish regardless of whether their parents had also experienced the same environment. Spiny damselfish were kept in water with different CO2 levels for several months. One level was consistent with the world taking rapid action to cut carbon emissions, while the other was a “business as usual” scenario, in which the current trend in rising emissions would equate to a 3C warming of the oceans by the end of the century." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
