The Iconic Language of Star Trek

Image
The sci-fi, action-packed film Star Trek Into Darkness has just hit American movie screens.  The Star Trek franchise is a North American icon that dates back to the original Star Trek TV series created by Gene Roddenberry back in the late 1960’s.  Check out some of the main, original actors (left side) and their latest talented counter-parts (right side) from Star Trek.

Iconic Characters
Captain Kirk

Mr. Spock

Dr. McCoy

Language and Cultural Learning Section Theme: Iconic Style
With iconic movies comes iconic language.  Iconic language or phrases become a recognizable part of a TV series or movie franchise.   Quite often, the iconic language is associated with a character.  So let’s take a look at Spock in the original Star Trek TV series and one of his iconic words including the same word from Zachary Quinto.

Such a simple and easy word “FASCINATING” that has become iconic in North American language.  Now let’s take a look at some recent situations where the Spock character and his langu…

Is the PPI scandal past its peak?

Interest Charges on Credit Cards Transactions

Image
Posted by blogger Amy Lewis :) 

Credit cards acts as a boon for people when they need urgent financial support. However, it has two facets and the weird side of it is that those card issuers charge heavy interest rates and are strict with their policies. Every card owner must therefore be aware of this fact and the interest charging rules of the financial organization or the bank. For those who pay off the balance amount within the grace period provided, it would not be a mind-boggling factor, but those who often fail to do so due t their careless attitude and extravagant nature, might be hit real hard by the concerned financial body.
Let us get it bit more unfolded for you. If we consider an example where a borrower has made a transaction of $2000 and repaid the amount within the grace period (normally 55 days or depends on the card company), they would be exempted from any interest charge. On the contrary, even if $1 is unpaid, the interest charged will be on the actual amount that wa…

X-Wing: Named Pilots- Maarek Steele

Named Pilots- Maarek Steele



Hi guys, i felt you all needed to see this, this is originally from Clint over at the the metal bikini.com so all credit goes to him for this!

Card: Maarek Steele (27)
Card Text: When your attack deals a face up Damage card to the defender, instead draw 3 Damage cards, choose 1 to deal, and discard the others.
Ability is an Action?: No.
Excels at: Uh...
Quick Take:Stele is another one of those guys like Winged Gundark that looks better on paper than he seems to function in reality.

The first, and probably most significant knock against Stele is that he's only two points cheaper than Vader. Not to get completely sidetracked onto Vader, but briefly, for those two points, Vader has +2 Pilot Rank and a second Action every turn. That's a much better ROI any way you want to cut it. Whether Stele should be cheaper or Vader should be more expensive, my opinion is Stele should be cheaper, but whatever.

I want to love Maarek Stele. I want to be the guy w…

Lynhthy Nguyen is on Fire!  From dancing in a Justin Timberlake video to performing with Snoop Dogg, Lynhthy (pronounced Linty) is making her dreams come true in the fiercely competitive, demanding world of dance! 
Let’s take a look at this incredibly talented performer out of California in an interview I call #dancelife!
Interview   Alex Graham: How did you get started in dancing and how long have you been dancing for?
Lynhthy Nguyen:  Ok, my parents put me in dance classes when I was four since I was like basically dancing out of the womb. And I have been dancing since then.  I trained technically until I was 18 and then 19 and 20 I was on a hip hop dance team UC Irvine. Then I started Go Go Dancing and then danced on a scholarship to San Diego (Academy of Performing Arts) and then challenged to make it my profession.
Alex:  Excellent. That is awesome stuff!
Alex:  What styles of dance are in your repertoire? Which one is your favorite?
Lynhthy:  Ummh. I am trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, …
