A SLIP-UP:

December 30, 2017

The P.C. brigade has invaded the British forces; Notices have gone up at a military academy advising the use of gender-neutral words to comply with “modern sentiments”. “They include saying “human resources” instead of “manpower” and “humanity” as opposed to “mankind”.” Shouldn’t it be; “hu resources” and “huity” respectively? I’d imagine that women who’ve been abused or feel undervalued or disrespected would be more offended by the way they are TREATED rather than the traditional language which is used. As for the word “chaps”, any civilised organisation would address a mix-gender group with “ladies and gentlemen” as they always have.

But I’ve also made a slip-up. It should of course be “gentleladies and gentlemen!”

HYLAS:

In ancient Greek legend, son of Theiodamas (king of the Dryopians in Thessaly), favourite and companion of Heracles on the Argonautic expedition. Having gone ashore at Cios in Mysia to fetch water, he was dragged down by the nymphs of the spring in which he dipped his pitcher. Heracles sought him in vain; afterward, in memory of Heracles’ threat to ravage the land if Hylas was not found, the inhabitants of Cios each year on a stated day roamed the mountains, shouting aloud for Hylas. The story was a favourite of Hellenistic Greek poets, such as Apollonius of Rhodes, Theocritus, and Nicander, and was also told by the Latin elegist Propertius.

“Space constraints are one reason, but curatorial choices also play a role. “Would we call these choices “censorship”?”

They could be; It may be better to store all the artworks in a computer where the works for a display could be randomly selected by the computer. This would also give “not worthy” pieces a chance to see the light of day. Oh, and the reason why the photo was taken down and the painting not was probably because the photo was of a real child and the painting just a fantasy. [Pyethon]

INSINCERITY:

July 8, 2017

The BBC has come under increasing criticism over its Brexit coverage.

A spokeswoman denies the criticism by saying, “The BBC takes impartiality incredibly seriously and we are covering Brexit developments in depth by examining all the perspectives and arguments. We have a wide range of voices on air and will continue to do so.”
“incredibly” – Why not simply say “The BBC takes impartiality seriously or very seriously “? This over-used word often suggests insincerity. Is the use of this word a superlative or a “Freudian slip”? The word “incredible” means unbelievable! The BBC should get its act together and play fair.

RAPING THE PAST:

An article in some U.K. newspapers feature black and white images from world war one which have been artificially coloured.

The SUN says, “TRENCHES IN COLOUR Haunting new colourised World War 1 pics shine a new light on the horrors of war in the trenches”

The DAILY EXPRESS says, “PICTURES OF WW1 ARE PAINSTAKINGLY COLOURED TO BRING HORROR TO LIFE FOR A NEW GENERATION”

The DAILY MIRROR says, “Breathtaking photos from the end of World War One brought to life in colour for the first time”
“As Britain remembers those who lost their lives in the conflict, pictures from the end of the conflict have been painstakingly brought into the 21st Century”

The creator of the images says, “As they pass from living memory to just remember them as people and not just images in a book or old photographs in a museum is so important and colourisation brings these people into the modern day.”

There’s nothing colourful about dying in a trench for your country. This trivialises the sacrifices our soldiers made for our freedoms. It’s just a cynical exercise to make money.
