Finalmente

FINALMENTE!

Quanto tempo stavo aspettando l’occasione giusta per accaparrarmi un Raspberry Pi? L’occasione è arrivata… e i Raspberry Pi sono due!!!

Da adesso in poi si potranno fare i veri test. Era ora.

They know more than that

Red: “People love to decry big brother…
the NSA, the government listening in on their most private lives,
yet they all willingly go online and hand over the most intimate details of those lives to big data.”

Liz: “Most people don’t care that Google knows their search history.”

Red:

“They know more than that.
They know your habits, the banks you use, the pills you pop, the men or women you sleep with.
Every piece of information is worth something to somebody.
And in the hands of the wrong person, that could be deadly.”

[From “The Blacklist”, season 2, episode 1]


“All the days became so long.
Did you really think I’d do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you’d realize, I would know, I would show…”

Point of view

“Just as with anything else, the closer and more involved you are with something the more you see distinctions between different categories of that thing. As a total outsider your categories tend to be large, all encompassing and dominated by the loudest, most visible or most discussed sub category.”

English pronunciation – Una poesia

Ho trovato on-line questo “poem” sulla pronuncia inglese… E’ alquanto “tricky” 🙂 Enjoy!

“Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it’s written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation’s OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.
Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.
Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.
Doctrine, turpentine, marine.
Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.”

[cercando, mi sembra che l’autore sia Gerard Nolst Trenité. Correggetemi se sbaglio]

EDIT: @___bazinga___ da twitter mi linka un video con la pronuncia corretta di tutta la poesia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1edPxKqiptw
