I have just uploaded a new activity on Lessonstream. It is titled 'A Killer Product' and it examines the story of Lorenzo Maggiore – a Santa Monica artist with an unusual obsession and a multi-million dollar business.

The activity also examines the fascinating world of crowdfunding – something that is close to my heart right now as I am currently running my own 'Videotelling' campaign on Indiegogo. Many of you have already got involved (thank you so much!) If you still intend to do so, there are now 5 days left.

Vocabulary as the humanizing Everest
David Crystal says that the vocabulary of a language is its Everest
How can we select and use words that are humanizingly the best ?
By classifying our vocabulary in terms of positivizers
and organizing our phraseologies on the basis of interactional optimizers
If our vocabulary in a language is indeed an Everest
To enhance our lexical competence,let´s always put our choices to a communicative-dignity test
by Francisco Gomes de Matos, a peace linguist, Recife,Brazil
As language users ,we may know how to use languages appropriately
but do we know how to use languages PEACEFULLY,NONVIOLENTLY,NONKILLINGLY FOR THE GOOD OF HUMANKIND ?
May this be a plea for global attention to a still little probed dimension in our co-responsibility as peaceful language users.
