    Word of the Day – 16 Nov 2011 – Yob BKA Bay Bay Kid ;) 


    A.Word.A.Day

    with Anu Garg

    yob

     

    PRONUNCIATION:
    (yob) 
    MEANING:
    noun: A rude, rowdy youth.
    ETYMOLOGY:
    Coined by reversing the spelling of the word boy. Earliest documented use: 1859.
    NOTES:
    There are not a lot of words in the English language that are coined from the backward spelling of another word. Another example is mho, the unit of electrical conductance, coined by reversing ohm, the unit of resistance. Fiction writers sometimes come up with names for their characters by spelling another name or wordbackwards.
    USAGE:
    “Like a yob who starts a fight in a pub by saying you have spilled his pint, the Russians offered pretexts that both parties knew were ludicrous.”
    A.D. Miller; A First-Hand Account of Life in Modern Russia; The Guardian (London, UK); Oct 21, 2011.

    Explore “yob” in the Visual Thesaurus. 

    A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

    Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. -Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and philanthropist (b. 1954)

    Motivational Quote of the Day – 16 Nov 2011 – Making A Decision – Ralph Waldo Emerson 


    “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”

    Ralph Waldo Emerson

     

    *******Have you ever decided to do something and all of a sudden every time you turn around, there was an opportunity pertaining to that decision, waiting for you to grab it?  In accordance with the law of attraction, this happens to me all the time!  As soon as I make my mind up to go for the gusto, I see open doors everywhere.  That doesn’t mean obstacles don’t pop up, it just fuels my fire even more when I’m challenged.  What decision are you on the fence about?  Go ahead and make up your mind and you’ll see all the opportunities you’ve been oblivious to all along.  Remember, nothing gets done without decision-makers and movers & shakers!!!*******
