Weekly 5

I'm still not certain what it is that annoys me the most about the English word "folks", but when the current President (Barack Obama) gives a press meeting and says, "...we tortured some folks," it struck a cord with the news media. In fact, his usage of "folks" has been the topic of discussion for quite some time. What do you think? The takeaway, honestly, is #wetorturedsomefolks.

mc/25 Generation Enterprise

Clara, founder and CEO behind Generation Enterprise, comes on The Mancaster to tell the tale of her now three year old not-for-profit that empowers youth in depressed areas and helps them help themselves! Like the old saying goes, "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime."

Weekly 4

Christopher and I discuss a bunch of topics, from bad news reports to the meaning behind "WiFi" to the use of Windows on Apple hardware.

One of my biggest pet peeves is the use of English- wait, no, not really the "use" of English, it's more the understanding of English. I want to educate (and be educated) about terms and their meanings!
