Even in reporting the triumph of the Russian anticovid vaccine Sputnik V the author, who is the vehicle of the good news, can’t help being malicious – just contemplate the verb ‘gloat’: Russia gloated today that it expected several EU countries to approve Sputnik V this month, saying it could provide 50million shots starting from June if required. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9325197/German-state-premier-calls-use-Russias-Sputnik-V-jab.html

doomscrolling is the word of the last year – 2020. Думскроллингом (или думсёрфингом) называют бесконтрольное чтение негативных новостей, ради которого пользователи соцсетей жертвуют сном и отдыхом, ухудшая своё ментальное состояние. Такую практику считают компульсивной и мазохистской. Doomscrolling can be defined as "an excessive amount of screen time devoted to the absorption of dystopian news." According to finance reporter Karen Ho, the term is thought to have originated in October 2018 on the social media site Twitter. However, the word may have earlier origins, and the phenomenon itself predates the coining of the term. The practice of doomscrolling can be compared to an older phenomenon from the 1970s called the mean world syndrome: "the belief that the world is a more dangerous place to live in than it actually is—as a result of long-term exposure to violence-related content on television.” In common parlance, the word doom connotes darkness and evil, referring to one’s fate (cf. damnation).[10] In the early days of the internet, surfing was a common verb used in reference to browsing the internet; similarly, the word scrolling refers to sliding through text, images, etc. Both surf and scroll suggest the habit of not staying on one site or piece of content (e.g. articles or images) for long.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — A writer who was chosen to translate American poet Amanda Gorman’s work into Dutch has handed back the assignment following criticism that a white author was selected to translate the words of a Black woman who is the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/2021/02/26/amanda-gormans-work-wont-translated-dutch-poet-after-criticism/6835745002/

Indeed, in academia, some men say they prefer to drop their titles to foster more informal relationships with colleagues and students. Not all women can afford to make the same choice, as their expertise is less likely to be taken for granted. Kretzenbacher believes that the gendered difference is “an expression of male privilege – that you as a male academic, you get the benefit of the doubt that you’re an expert, or that you are a professor or a doctor or something”. That benefit of the doubt gets extended to women, and certain types of women, less often. https://www.bbc.com/worklife/article/20210216-why-do-professional-titles-actually-matter

The Google search requests reveal that only a tiny percent of people from the Ukraine use the Ukrainian language for it, while the overwhelming majority sticks to Russian. The official promotion of the Ukrainian has reduced itself to the war of attrition against the Russian language: the 4th in its influence among the 5 major vehicular languages of the world. These are: English, French, German, Russian and Spanish, according to the statistics of the prominent American scholar Lawrence Venuti.

We will not hesitate

to raise the cost on Russia

and defend our vital interests and our people. And we

will be more effective

in dealing with Russia

when we work in coalition and coordination with other like-minded partners.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/speeches-remarks/2021/02/04/remarks-by-president-biden-on-americas-place-in-the-world/minded partners. 1) to raise the cost on Russia = to demolish the economy of Russia 2) will be more effective = will defeat (Russia) 3) when we work in coalition and coordination = when we lead 4) other like-minded partners = our satellites Biden should have studied history first before starting to brandish thinly-veiled threats against Russia. The arrogant sonofabitch!

В то же время я дал понять президенту Путину, в совершенно иной манере, чем мой предшественник, что прошли те времена, когда Соединенные Штаты отступали перед агрессивными действиями России — вмешательством в наши выборы, кибератаками, отравлением своих граждан. Мы без колебаний поднимем цену, которую России придется платить, и будем защищать наши жизненно важные интересы и наш народ.

И наши отношения с Россией станут более эффективными

, когда мы будем работать в коалиции и согласованно с другими партнерами-единомышленниками.

https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/20210209-the-worlds-most-misunderstood-novel If it is so misunderstood, then chances are that it was badly written. And what makes the author of the article believe that his interpretation is the right one? Good books are NEVER MISUNDERSTOOD. If the author lets in the tactic of "plausible denial", then he is either afraid of the repercussions or he simply can't help being ambiguous - then he can't write. Deplorably, the history of American literature abounds in ambivalent writers. But American literature owes its fame to the authors who are absolutely clear in their messages: Mark Twain, Theodore Dreiser, Jack London, O. Henry, Irwin Shaw, Stephan Heym. Herman Wouk and others who do not need brainstorming on the part of the reader.

"In the West, stand-up comedy is about challenging and 'offending' the audience, authorities or social norms," Tony Chou, comedian and owner of Beijing comedy club Humour Section, tells the BBC. But this is still largely seen as rude or disrespectful by some in China. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-55744860
