The Greek word “kakistocracy,” #noun, according to Peggy Noonan, describes a state or government run by the most unscrupulous or unsuitable people — #corrupt, dishonest and incompetent regulators put in charge by self-absorbed, selfish and ignorant citizens. IOW, the world we live in today. #wordoftheday via @forbes @merriamwebster #wotd #kakistocracy #wordporn

"If our democracy is to work in this increasingly diverse nation, each one of us must try to heed the advice of one of the great characters in #Americanfiction, Atticus Finch, who said 'You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.'

The word “ampersand” itself is an alteration of “et per se and,” which became corrupted to “and per se and”, and finally "ampersand." The ampersand has relatively limited uses. #CMOS doesn’t address ampersands, except to say that it’s OK to spell them out. @associatedpress explicitly bans the ampersand from anything but a proper name or an abbreviation like “B&B” for “bed and breakfast.” But while playing fast and loose with ampersands isn’t a good idea, there are times when a little ampersand creativity can produce excellent #typographic results. #happytuesday #punctuate #tipsandtricks #style #tips4life #instagrammar #and #style #books

@subwaybookreview #repost | Karyn, reading The Good Immigrant: "I’ve never come across a collection of essays on race, immigration and the narratives around them. They're written by 15 emerging British black, Asian and minority ethnic writers, poets, journalists and artists. Especially in today's political climate it's important that these voices are being published. I'm half Malaysian-Chinese and half British. I was born in Malaysia and raised in the UK. I like hearing the points of view of people from multiracial backgrounds, especially an essay titled ‘Beyond Good Immigrants’ by Wei Ming Kam." @karynbly edited by Nikesh Shukla. #essays #bookstagram #globalcitizen #fridayreads #onthestreet #london #subwaybookreview 🇬🇧

In 1972, Shirley Chisholm was years ahead of her time; a woman of many firsts — first woman to run for a major political party, 'the first African American congresswoman. The first black woman to run for #president.' So why don't we know more about her?" #boss #throwback #bosslady #ShirleyChisholm #equality #inclusion #iKnowHer Link in bio.

Compound predicates help to make language more advanced. A compound predicate has two actions for the same subject, which is doing more than one action. Look for a compound #verb, which occurs when two or more verbs share the same subject. An example: 'The kids climbed and played on the jungle gym.' Thus, the #compound predicate is 'climbed and played on the jungle gym.'" #instagrammar #tipsntricks
