The word God is rarely defined with any degree of accuracy. Book Why We Invented God When asked, the majority of individuals resort to repeating timeworn phrases that merely promote a particular religious point of view.
In fact, even scholars are uncertain of the source of the word, let alone its definition. Most rely on citing the various religious perspectives to convey some idea as to the meaning of the word. However, in concert with the major religions of the world, the word God can be defined as follows: a super-natural entity conceived as the omnipotent originator of the material universe. Some overt polytheistic religions such as Hinduism regard the multitude of separate deities as various aspects of an underlying One that, in the case of Hinduism, is Brahma, the universal or cosmic base.
Pantheists, for the most part, view the Cosmos as the be-all and end-all of existence. Although in their case, God seems to be deemed synonymous with Nature although few venture to define the connection between the material realm and the entity that gives rise to it.
A best-selling linguist takes us on a lively tour of how the English language is evolving before our eyes – and why we should embrace this transformation and not fight it.Language is always changing – but we tend not to like it.
We understand that new words must be created for new things, but the way English is spoken today rubs many of us the wrong way. Whether its the use of literally to mean figuratively rather than by the letter or the way young people use LOL and like, or business jargon like whats the ask?
– it often seems as if the language is deteriorating before our eyes.But the truth is different and a lot less scary, as John McWhorter shows in this delightful and eye-opening exploration of how English has always been in motion and continues to evolve today. Drawing examples from everyday life and employing a generous helping of humor, he shows that these shifts are a natural process common to all languages and that we should embrace and appreciate these changes, not condemn them.Words on the Move opens our eyes to the surprising backstories to the words and expressions we use every day.
Did you know that silly once meant blessed? Or that ought was the original past tense of owe? Or that the suffix -ly in adverbs is actually a remnant of the word like? And have you ever wondered why some people from New Orleans sound as if they come from Brooklyn?McWhorter encourages us to marvel at the dynamism and resilience of the English language, and his book offers a lively journey through which we discover that words are ever on the move, and our lives are all the richer for it.

The Yearly Planner is for office workers who want to manage their holidays and absences on a chart with functionality to make basic but essential calculations. Included in the e-book is a link to download a copy of an excel file to manage your holidays, and record absences and training.
This Yearly Planner is for the Fiscal Year (April 2016-March 2017), for up to 25 employees. Book Yearly Planner: Fiscal 2016-17 (Office Planner) Yearly Planner The year is set out in one long row, and there is space for up to 25 people to be recorded on the planner.
Once you have entered their names and the amount of holiday they are each entitled to during the year, you can begin to record their holidays, training and absence. The planner is designed for people who work office hours. E.g. one shift Monday to Friday. The planner can be used if you work weekends as well. There are four types of activities you can record on the planner; РІвЂ”С•H for Holiday РІвЂ”С•S for Sickness РІвЂ”С•T for Training РІвЂ”С•A for Authorised Absence Using these shifts you can see at a glance, how many people will be in the office each day, how much holiday each person has taken and is entitled to, how often they have been sick or absent and the amount of training each person has received during the year.
These can be for whole or half days. Calculations The planner does a number of calculations for you. You can enter the number of holidays, Bank Holidays and Carry Over of holidays from last year. Then the spreadsheet will automatically calculate how many holidays each person is entitled to during the year.
As holidays are taken the Holidays Left column will count down. The planner will also add up the number of sickness days, absence days and training days each person has taken during the year. At the top of the planner the number of absences are calculated, and the number of people in complete attendance each day.
At the bottom of the planner, the Absence and Sickness Rates for the year is automatically calculated for you. The Absence Rate is the number times everyone is sick and absent over the number of times they were scheduled to be in attendance during the year. The Sickness Rate is the number times everyone is sick over the number of times they were scheduled to be in attendance during the year. These are calculated separately so that you can help plan your workload and absence arrangements better in the future.
Holidays Holidays are always difficult to manage. This planner calculates the number of holidays each person is entitled to and then counts down as holidays and even half days of holiday are taken. This way you can manage your office better. You can see at a glance how many other people are either absent or on holiday each day and how much holiday they are entitled to.
This will make the choice of accepting or refusing each holiday request quicker. If a person requests too much holiday during the year, they will automatically cause the holiday calculator to turn red but continue counting. This means that if you allow holidays to be brought forward, you can still record the holidays and then enter a negative number in the Holiday Carry Over cell next year.
Many countries have a minimum holiday requirement. This means that by law, dependent upon the country you are working in, you need to legally ensure that all of your employees take or have the opportunity to take their minimum holiday entitlements. In the UK for example the current minimum holiday entitlement is 5.6 weeks.
