(EN) – A Man’s Guide to Cufflinks | Real Men Real Style


Cufflinks are tools for fastening shirt cuffs closed.They’re an alternative to the buttons that are commonly sewn onto shirt cuffs. The defining feature is that cufflinks are separate objects: sew it onto the shirt and it’s a button, but if it’s fully removable it’s a cufflink.Just like buttons, cufflinks come in many shapes, sizes, styles, and materials. They usually offer a little more contrast than a button, and are considered a more ornamental option, but they’re not …

(EN) – What Beer Tastes Like: A Glossary Of Beer Flavors and Descriptions | Bear Flavored


One of my favorite things to do in recent months has been hosting beer tastings with a few friends. It’s cheaper than the bar, the selection is as good as you want it to be, and it’s a lot easier to talk to everyone (about the beer you’re drinking.) Of course, being the intrepid blogger that I am, I’ll sometimes jot down a few notes and take pictures so I can do a review. I also like the chance to get other people’s thoughts on different flavors, though I’ve noticed, lots of times, people say they don’t know how to describe the things they’re tasting. And not that you have to! Many people drink beer on a regular basis without discussing it like some kind of fancy-ass snob; it takes a special kind of dorkyness to talk about what you’re drinking in such specific terms.But sometimes — maybe with a beer that tastes like nothing you’ve had before — you want to put it into words. So here is a glossary of terms used to describe the many possible flavors and characteristics of beer. (I am leaving “off-flavors” out of this list, as that’s a subject for a …

(FR) (EN) (PDF) – Glossaire des termes de la Science des Sols | MINISTÈRE DE L’AGRICULTURE DU CANADA


Lors de son assemblée annuelle de 1966, la Société canadienne de la science des sols (SCSS) créait un Comité de la nomenclature dont la tache était d’établir un glossaire des termes techntques employés en science des sols au Canada. Une édition préliminaire, en langue anglais;, en grand; partie tirée du glossaire de la Soi1 Science Society of America (Soi1 Sci. Soc. Am. Proc. 29:330-351) a été publiée en Partie II des Comptes rendus de la SCSS, de l’année 1967. Le présent glossaire contient quelques nouveaux termes, et quelques définitions ont été revues. II est publié en français et en anglais par la Direction de la Recherche du minlstère de l’Agriculture du Canada. Dans l’édition française, l’équivalent anglais suit le terme français; par exemple, eau absorbée, absorbed water. Dans l’édition anglaise, on retrouve la disposition inverse. Le présent glossaire n’est pas complet et devra être remis à iour périodiquement. Nous prions tous les usagers éventuels de nous communiquer les améliorations qu’ils jugent utile d’apporter aux définitions des termes, de même que les définitions d’autres termes qui devraient être inclus dans le glossaire. Nous remercions les nombreuses personnes qui ont collaboré à l’établissement de ce glossaire et celles qui ont préparé la traduction française. En outre, nous suggérons de consulter les publications ci-dessous mentionnées, en tant que sources supplémentaires de définitions.

(EN) (PDF) – Edvard Munch | National Gallery of Victoria


Edvard Munch, Norway’s greatest painter, began his long career in 1880 at the age of seventeen. He brought art and life together by communicating his own personal experience passionately. His intense expression of raw human emotion and his exploration of psychological states have a universal appeal which still speaks to us today. The scream, Munch’s iconic work, has come to symbolise the angst of modern man in today’s frenetic society and, like the Mona Lisa, is one of the most frequently reproduced images in the world. Munch worked in a variety of media, repeatedly exploring the same themes in painting, drawing, etching, lithography, photography and woodcuts. Potent imagery and dramatic use of heightened colour, both radical in their time, combined with his innovative studio techniques, have secured Munch’s reputation as one of …

Une sélection de termes et de notions utilisés en géographie.

Depuis Accaparement jusqu’à Zoonose, le glossaire de Géoconfluences s’est construit au fil des années, sans plan d’ensemble. C’est pourquoi certains termes très spécifiques y figurent, et pas d’autres mots pourtant plus usuels. Le glossaire s’est enrichi au fil des dossiers, chaque dossier faisant l’objet d’une page intitulée « vocabulaire et notions générales » qui recense les mots relatifs au thème ou à l’espace abordé. Voici par exemple les glossaires des récents dossiers sur l’Afrique, le fait religieux, la Chine, ou encore les océans dans la mondialisations.

(EN) – Synchrotron Glossary | NSLS II


Synchrotron radiation is the name given to light radiated by an electric charge following a curved trajectory, for example, a charged particle under the influence of a magnetic field. Synchrotron radiation is a natural phenomenon that has existed since the Big Bang. It is in the starlight that we see at night, generated by charged particles of matter spiraling through the cosmos. However, a manmade, controllable source of such radiation was not found until the middle of the twentieth century when accelerators for charged particles first appeared. High-energy electron accelerators emerged as viable synchrotron radiation sources because, as electrons approach the speed of light, the synchrotron radiation increasingly is emitted in a narrow, forward-directed cone. Thus, the radiation is concentrated in a small solid angle and can be readily used by researchers.
