Your Not So Super Tuesday Open Thread

As a Canucker on the outside looking in, I Bart Scott* for next Tuesday. All you brilliant folks are going to really bring it-I feel it in my bones/inherent boner. A reality show star may end up representing the GOP…and the corporate media will take the whole situation seriously! [drinks copiously in anticipation]

Games-wise most everything is underway already. As per the usual the NBA gives us a big load of nada. The hockey has NYR/NJ and NYI/MIN-tis good times in the larger New York area, isn’t it? Most of college ball is happening already-ALA/# 16 UK, #2 KU/# 19 BAY and #6 MSU/OSU are the most watchable tilts.

*can’t wait

/all complaints about the open thread posting late should be directed towards Old School Zero

I feel like being high-minded and artsy for a moment.

You might’ve heard about a woman who lived in New York and Chicago. She died a few years back. She spent most of her life as a nanny to some wealthy kids on the Gold Coast, but what most people–including the kids–didn’t know is that she was a brilliant, self-taught photographer. A horde of photos was traced back to her (most of them were in a storage unit that she was in arrears for, and they got auctioned off and found in an attic years later), and bit by bit, we’re seeing what a brilliant photographer she was. She did mainly street photography, some portraiture, and some landscapes. Mostly B&W.

She was immensely talented, and you will be amazed.

Cross your fingers for me, fellas. I got a call that the FBI is back on the case on my background check (which had been put on hold thanks to the GOP and their fucking sequester). Maybe someone uncovered my application and said, “Hey, this guy speaks Arabic, and lived in Syria and Pakistan… maybe we should, you know, finish getting him hired!”

And this happened mere hours after another government agency opened up a posting of 40 (!) jobs I’m qualified for.

With my luck, I’ll do something stupid, like turn down one job thinking I’ll be offered the other, and then the second agency will rescind the offer or something.

(I love teaching, but it ain’t paying the bills. And I’m getting increasingly frustrated by students who are getting dumber and lazier every fucking semester.)

Good thing I have an Android phone, then!

Though, come to think of it, I’ll have to adjust some of my online habits. When I first got the hiring referral and the background check started, I swore off certain web sites. When everything got suspended, I kept my online nose clean for several months, and then when things looked like they were permanently shelved, I resumed some bad habits.

Now I’ve got to expunge browser history, and it might be time for me to change ISPs again.

حظا موفقا

Lothar of the Hill People
Member
Lothar of the Hill People

Heh. Dunno where you got that, but my brain sees that as “lucky luck.”

موفقا and حظ are virtually synonymous. Of course, Arabic does have this mechanic wherein you use the adverbial form of a verb to convey emphasis (e.g., saying the equivalent of “he hit him hittily” means “he hit him very hard”).

It works, though. Thanks.

Sill Bimmons
Member
Sill Bimmons

It’s just SO FUCKING AWESOME that you knew that.

Lothar of the Hill People
Member
Lothar of the Hill People

OK, this is where my less-than-fluency bites me in the ass. So, موفق is the noun/adjectival form (the difference is in short vowels that aren’t usually included; you figure out which form it is from context). It means “serendipitous,” or “chance,” or, in my brain, “lucky.” حظا is “luck.” No ambiguity.

Add the alif to the end of موفقا, and you’re either indicating a case change, or making it adverbial (or you could be making it a dual–referring to two people, but that would be weird). It’s hard to tell, because the difference between the case change and the adverbial are diacritics that, like short vowels, are usually not included and you infer them from context. If it’s an adverb, that would mean that the alif at the end of حظا isn’t there to mark case, but to indicate that it’s the adjective form. So it’s not “luck,” but in fact, “lucky.” And the موفقا is an adverb modifying the adjective “lucky.” So you can’t be “lucky lucky.” You’re “serendipitously lucky.”

Which would be the best type of luck to have, right? That’s where your “best of luck” came from.

This is actually the type of thing that drives me away from Arabic. I remember working hard on translating some stuff, having it not make sense, and then working for hours to hammer it into some coherent form. Except that the third word of the piece I was translating was a word that is colloquially used for “camel,” and my translation was not only 90% wrong, but 10 times as difficult as it would’ve been.

I just came across this job posting for a Policy, Science & Innovation Officer position for the British Government. One of the qualifications was having a Bachelor’s degree with 3+ years of professional experience in a policy, social science and economics setting and either an engineering or science based setting. Also, you need to have knowledge of government, policy, science, climate and innovation in British Columbia as well as the UK.

The duties were also as diverse as the requirements and all for 68K/year. . . Canadian.

This job sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen as it seems like it’s two very different kind of jobs rolled into one and insanely stressful. On a related note, I remember this job position being available 8 months ago.
