The Genius Award

Posted: August 9th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: | No Comments »

The MacArthur Fellows Program or MacArthur Fellowship (nicknamed the Genius Award) is an award given by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation each year to typically 20 to 40 United States citizens or residents, of any age and working in any field, who “show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work.”

According to the Foundation’s website, “the fellowship is not a reward for past accomplishment, but rather an investment in a person’s originality, insight, and potential.” The current amount of the award is $500,000, paid as quarterly installments over five years. As of 2007, there have been 756 recipients who have received a total of more than $350 million.

Perspective or Prospective?

Posted: August 4th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: | No Comments »

Часто в переводнах на английский встречается: “complete business perspective”…

Perspective means “point of view, especially the ability to see the whole of something.” In art, it specifically means the ability to present three dimensional objects using a two dimensional medium. Perspective is normally a noun.

The prefix per- means “completely.”

Prospective means “future or potential” and is normally an adjective. The noun form is prospect.

The prefix pro- means “forward.”

The Latin root of both words, -spect-, means “to see.” So perspective literally means “seeing completely” and prospective means “seeing ahead.”

Dewey Decimal Classification

Не поверите! Сморю я тут “Френдс” на досуге (“энный” час подряд), и тут Чендлер произносит : “Dewey Decimal System”… полезла смотреть…

The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC, also called the Dewey Decimal System) is a proprietary system of library classification developed by Melvil Dewey in 1876. This system organizes books on library shelves in a specific and repeatable order that makes it easy to find any book and return it to its proper place.

The system is made up of ten main classes or categories, each divided into ten secondary classes or subcategories, each having ten subdivisions.

Has been greatly modified and expanded through 22 major revisions, the most recent in 2004.  Besides its frequent revision, DDC’s main advantage over its chief American rival, the Library of Congress Classification system developed shortly afterward, is its simplicity.

Ночь.

Дремлет сокол, дремлют пташки.

Дремлют козы и барашки,

А в траве в различных позах

Спят различные букашки.

Дремлет мостик над водой,

Дремлет кустик молодой,

Пятаков Борис петрович

Дремлет кверху бородой.

1931 г.
