Here are some interesting reads from this week:
The French are fighting back against 24/7 on-call work culture.
Reducing your language learning baggage, or: “All you need is to keep going.”
An interesting article about the E.U.’s swelling language roster.
The most misused words in English (I am forever getting bemused and nonplussed wrong).
And finally, the New York Times has just released its annual “52 places to go” list, and it has me feeling slightly possessive and territorial because Botswana is on there. Stay away, please; it’s all mine in 2017!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. The photo is apropos of nothing, really. I saw the can in the supermarket and thought it looked like gorgeous art. Also, this week I did roast chestnuts for the first time ever. They were delightful even though half the joy of eating them is the wintry feeling and it is in no way, shape or form winter here. (Thank you, Mark Slomiany, for that one time you made them and I saw how easy it looked!)
