A movie director chose the task of researching pre-1800's Algonquian language in order to include it in a movie about colonial era Virginia. "The best source was a list of Indian words and their meanings compiled by a Jamestown colonist in the 1600s. But it had been recopied by some of the 17th century's most incompetent scribes. Their N's looked like A's, which looked like U's, and they had a serious problem with spelling. The Algonquian word for 'ants' had been mislabeled as 'aunts,' and the word for 'herring' had become 'hearing.' " 12-06

- -06-11-10 Editorial: Where Are the Cleanup Crews? (iReport.com)
"When I looked for the first time at Grand Bess I was shocked. The outer booms had come apart in two different places and in another area, the boom was sinking. The inner soaker boom was totally saturated in oil and needed to be changed. The saturated booms were on the rocks where pelicans were sitting, floating haphazardly or sinking, twisted around, and laying over the outer boom. I looked around me and thought again… Where are the people BP has hired to oversee and maintain this boom? Where are the people they hired because, as far as I could see in every direction, there were at most five boats in the entire bay."
"There doesn’t seem to be a strong chain of command overseeing the clean up. BP is reactive instead of proactive. They appear overwhelmed and unable to handle the tasks of the day to day clean-up. Someone should have reported the boom and it should have been changed and properly placed around the island."

- -Raising Confident Kids (Huffington Post)
"The point isn't to criticize children. But it's to recognize that self-esteem really, truly comes as the result of achievement -- in the classroom, on the field, at home -- rather than false accomplishments. Instead of praising your child with "you're so smart!" be specific. Tell him, "You did a great job on your spelling quiz," or simply, "You tied your own shoes!" Instead of telling him he's he best on the team when you really don't mean it, tell him you could tell he tried hard. Next time, he'll try even harder -- guaranteed." 08-12
