And just as Miss Oprah predicted, the Government French has banned the Twitter term 'hashtag' from all official documents.

The Government's powerful Académie française has decreed that the French word 'mot-dièse' must be spoken when the '#' symbol appears in print.

But critics swiftly pointed out that the two words are technically different, with the English hashtag symbol leaning to the right and denoting an abbreviation for 'number', equivalent to 'no.', while the 'dièse' - the French term for the 'sharp' sign used in music - is vertical.

Users of Twitter took to the site to air their views. Some complained that you can't hashtag mot-dièse because it contains a hyphen. Another noted the news with the mocking hashtag #fightingalosingbattle.

Critics charged if a French word must be found for the contentious symbol, then it should be 'croisillon' (meaning cross-piece or lattice) rather than a dièse (sharp sign).

The hashtag is just one foreign invasion l'Académie is wishing to see off. Even such obscure terms as 'shadow-boxing', 'detachable motor caravan' and 'multifunctional industrial building' were blacklisted over 65 pages of forbidden vocabulary on the Journal's website.

Scientists were told to no longer refer to 'serial analysis of gene expression' and 'suppression subtractive hybridisation'.

The most pernicious illegal words, found on Le Demi-Sac de la Disgrace and punishable by the revocation of rosbif privileges, include
'email', 'blog', 'supermodel', 'chewing gum', 'parking', and 'low-cost airline'.

Living legend Leonard Nimoy has been catching up with some old friends lately – and tweeting about it. For example, OG Spock sat down for a meal a couple of weeks ago with Kirk Thatcher. Who? The twitpic caption says it all: “Had lunch today. Remember the guy on the bus in ST IV ? Kirk Thatcher. LLAP”

Yup, Thatcher was the punk with the boom box who flipped Shat the bird. Thatcher, by the way, also served as an associate producer and Nimoy’s assistant on Zurück in die Gegenwart, and he wrote the classic song, “I Hate You,” which his punk character blares on the bus.

STTNG‘s Patrick Stewart was at the New York Stock Exchange today for Twitter‘s initial public offering.

Stewart is an active participant on the Twitter.

Twitter is expected to do well in its public offering. With an initial IPO of $23 to $26, the social media site expects shares to rise to $46 per share.

“Twitter is a significant aspect of my career,” said Stewart.

... twitter I do, yeah I love twitter
- What's the difference between facebook and twitter?
- I don't know, I've got no facebook.

In twitter you just have twitter friends, and you talk from time to time. I don't twitter enough probably. But I tell them what I'm doing, and ask them what they're doing... it's a feeling that there's many together
- And you like group communion...
- I do in a way because I think, you know they say there's a collective consciousness, and every single thing that people think and feel and do feeds into this collective consciousness

A LIFE OF ERRANDS Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation 


If You Are Lucky
You Will Grow Old
And Live
A Life Of Errands.
You Will Discern
What People Need
And Provide It
Before They Ask.
You Will Drive Your Car
Here And There
Delivering And Fetching
And Neither The Traffic
Nor The Weather
Will Bother You
In The Least.
You Will Whip Down The 405
To San Diego
To Pick Up An Acorn
For Someone's Proverb
And So On And So Forth.
In Spite Of The Ache
In Your Heart
About The Girl You
Never Found
And The Fact That
After Years Of
Spiritual Rigor You Did Not Manage
To Enlighten Yourself
A Certain Cheerfulness
Will Begin To
Arise Out Of Your Crushed
Hopes And Intentions.
How Thirstily
You Embrace Your Next Commission:
To Sift Through The Sunglasses
At A Lost And Found
In Las Vegas
Just A Few Hours
Across The Desert.
Your Hair Is White
You Have Breasts
And A Gut
Over Your Belt
You Are No Longer A Boy,
Or Even A Man
But A Sense Of Gratitude
Enlivens Every Move You Make.
Yes, Sir, These Are The
Very Gold-Rimmed Pair
She Left In The Plastic Tray
Beside The Dollar Slot Machines.
No, Sir, I Am Not Lying.  Question  Question  Question

there is the toll on sociality, also troublesome could be the cognitive drain on kronic multitasking, especially on the young; the professors are noticing all the student papers now have no depth, and are made up of short disconnected paragraphs

CLASSIC RICK

Last week, former Star Terk executive producer Rick Berman tweeted a photo of a script cover page that read Star Terk: The Next Generation -- "The Movie," which credited the story to Berman and Maurice Hurley and the screenplay to Hurley. Berman captioned the tweet as follows: "Never seen, never produced 'first' TNG movie. Story by me and Hurley, screenplay by Hurley. Wasn't half bad."

Several fans tweeted Berman asking for additional details, imploring him to share the whole thing publicly or to at least "Give us the pitch. 140 characters or less." Berman let the mystery hang in the air. StarTerk.ru reached out to Berman to ask what prompted him to tweet that photo now and to try to pry from him a couple of plot details.

"What prompted me was that I found the story of one version and the script of the other in a box," Berman wrote back. "The studio wanted two scripts written. They and I chose the one to be produced (which, of course, was Star Trek Generations). No elements of it (the unused script) went into any film we made."

Fair enough. But how about some small tease of the unused storyline? "Nothing about the plot...," he added. "Sorry."

We know, of course, that it isn't really funny. But then you can read the comments, and see all of these insightful comments on the subject of life and euthanasia:

" ... they shouldnt use the term "brain dead" when she can still respond through text messages i personally beilive they couldve tried harder." bounce

Прекрасно. Потрясающе!

"They could of just shut her phone off and the cable off." Neutral 

" ... why would anyone let their daughter slip into this kind of state in the first place. I'm all for people have keeping their distance and giving other people space but you can't be so  that you don't even know what's happening to someone(unless they want you) especially if it's your own daughter. How can she have know ife if she can enjoy music. Can they really deal with guilt of taking their own daughters life away." Neutral

" ... those parents need to learn what "depression" means. When you're depressed, you really don't want to talk to ANYONE, you just want to be left to your solitude and maybe browse the web a lil'."

 
" ... that little girl can talk she said she had cramps was on the phone txting and talking,,,,the little girls parents should be set on fire for this and the girl freed to live and that station that reported this shut down and never hired by anyone again ,,,this whole thing pisses me off fucking assholes man geezz!"

"... fking stupid ppl, sick of these bastards, no one has a right to end someone's life like that..."
