Opening ceremony of 13th Chinese National
While language is there to help us communicate Andrus Peat Jersey , it can also sometimes have the side effect of separating "us" from "them". Some groups intentionally develop slang to repel outsiders. Most technical subjects have their own terminology, especially hard sciences with their wealth of "big words." But the same kind of thing turns up in the arts and even sport: Only another golfer will really understand what you mean when you ruefully tell him or her that you were "hitting fat" today.

The world of the internet has created its own strange wrinkle on this phenomenon. Numerous acronyms and related shorthand expressions have been developed for efficiency or as a way to form online cliques. This can be annoying when you want to participate in, for example, an online chat. Therein you will discover a wealth of that most favoured linguistic device of the armed services: the acronym. Thus, rather than typing "fouled up beyond all recognition" Trey Hendrickson Jersey , you could just use the expression "FUBAR". In fact, this particular acronym became very popular early on with computer programmers, who often used it to refer to a piece of computer code that had gotten so convoluted and buggy that it was deemed unfixable.

While computer geeks, dorks, nerds Sheldon Rankins Jersey , and their ilk love their acronyms, the internet is now populated by users of all types. To get by in the silicon universe, they'll need to know a few simple phrases. For instance, one can type LOL to let others know that one is "laughing out loud", which basically just means one is amused. If the amusement deepens Alex Anzalone Jersey , type out LMAO to clarify that now you are "laughing my ass off". In the most extreme case, ROFL states unequivocally that you are now "rolling on the floor laughing". As you can see, the internet can be a very funny place.?

If you are confused or taken aback by something someone says, type WTF, which translates to "What the f***?" On the other hand if you are amazed Marcus Williams Jersey , you should go with OMG to convey "Oh my God!"

One thing you will notice is that a large number of the expressions employed are used for the purpose of conveying emotion. This is necessary because others can't tell whether you are being serious online when you use sarcasm, for example, which can lead to misunderstandings. A variant of acronyms used to handle this problem are emoticons. Originally, these were character sequences like :) for a happy face, :( for a sad face Ryan Ramczyk Jersey , or ;) for a winking face to indicate tongue-in-cheek. On many systems, you can now insert little face icons to get many different emotions across.

Nearly 80,000 people in India's financial capital Mumbai attended the Global Citizen Festival headlined by British rock band Coldplay Saturday as part of an anti-poverty campaign.

Top global megastars including rap megastar Jay Z, pop singer Demi Lovato and British band The Vamps performed at the event, alongside Bollywood names including superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

The Global Citizen Festival is an annual music concert established in 2012 which is part of a broader campaign to end extreme poverty by 2030. Coldplay's Chris Martin is the concert's creative director.

Concertgoers formed long lines early in the day outside the venue Marshon Lattimore Jersey , causing major traffic congestion in Mumbai's already-congested business district.

Martin ended the concert by singing India's national anthem 'Vande Mataram' (Mother, I salute thee) with help from India's Oscar-winning music director A.R Rahman.

Nearly 80 percent of tickets to the event were given away to people who support organizer Global Poverty Project's campaigns, including improving sanitation, gender equality, and education in India.

The event was attended by Hindi screen legend Amitabh Bachchan and Nelson Mandela's grandson Kweku Mandela.

In a televised address Cameron Jordan Jersey , India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had appeared at the festival in 2014, quoted lines from Bob Dylan's famous songs to refer to changing political climate in the South Asian country.

But he kept his comments brief, saying "I know that I stand between you and Coldplay," but heaped praise on India's young population Michael Thomas Jersey , saying they "bring an energy and idealism that is unparalleled."


Tripoli, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Eight people were killed and two others injured in clashes between armed groups and residents on Sunday in Rqe'at town, 40 km southeast of Libyan capital Tripoli, a security source revealed.

""The clashes broke out at dawn today in the Rqe'at town between young residents and armed groups from the nearby city of Trahona,"" a source from the interior ministry told Xinhua.

The clashes started after the militants killed Saturday a resident of Rqe'at Alvin Kamara Jersey , sparking anger in the area. Residents attacked a number of militants stationed at the administrative order of the area and the militants retaliated by launching a large-scale armed attack with tanks and artillery, the source said.

The source confirmed that the casualties are likely to rise due to inability of ambulances to access the area of the clashes and to transfer victims.

""The clashes continue intermittently. The militants viciously attacked residential neighborhoods and destroyed civilian homes. There is a state of chaos in the streets of Rqe'at,"" he added.

There was no official statement from the government or municipal council of Trahona about the clashes.

Libya suffers escalating violence and chaos since the uprising of 2011 that toppled former leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime. The country is plagued with insecurity and unrest.
