Why do I need to know Oh là là? Any caricature of the French involves someone saying Oh là là and the best thing about this cliché is that it's actually true. Living in France you hear it at least once a day, probably more, and after a while you find yourself saying it almost as much. So, what does it mean? There are several meanings for Oh là là and to work out which one you're hearing you'll need to rely on context. One important thing to note is that unlike in English (when we say 'Ooh la la') when the French use this expression it is never intended to express that someone is sexually attractive. Here's a look at the different ways it is used. There is the 'traditional' method, most known to foreigners and often (though not exclusively) used by women, which is the prim and proper Oh là là. This is used to express admiration, almost in the same way we anglophone girls of a certain age use the phrase 'Oh my … [Read more...] about French Word of the Day: Oh là là
I think I said recently that there have been way too many dinosaurs on Tet Zoo lately. It isn't that I don't like dinosaurs: it's just that I aim to provide balance and, let's face it, writing about charismatic megafauna all the time - especially dead charismatic megafauna - doesn't help. However, I'm sure you'll all forgive me for discussing my own published research. Last week another new paper came out with my name on it; hey, I'm fourth author of four, but it all counts, right? It's on another new bloody dinosaur... Given that I write on Tet Zoo about such diverse subjects as the global amphibian crisis, lake monsters, bird anatomy and the impending death of the oceans, you might be forgiven for thinking that I lack any sort of area of speciality in the zoological sciences. As it happens, I do have one: I am the Leading World Expert on the theropod dinosaurs of the Lower Cretaceous Wealden Supergroup of southern England... and, no, I don't expect you to take this claim at all … [Read more...] about Oh no, not another new Wealden theropod!

Angelique S. Chengelis The Detroit News Published 3:06 PM EST Nov 11, 2018 Piscataway, N.J. – With two regular-season games remaining and plenty still at stake, in the aftermath of Michigan’s 42-7 walloping of Rutgers, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about the composition of his team and whether it has a chance to do something great. With the addition of quarterback Shea Patterson, an overhaul of the offensive staff, the addition of strength coach Ben Herbert, and a consistently top-ranked defense engineered by coordinator Don Brown, are all the pieces in place for a championship-level run? “Oh, yeah. Good chance? Sure. Good one,” Harbaugh said after the win at Rutgers. “Just keep preparing, keep focusing, keep taking it one game at a time and see how good we can get.” Michigan is No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings, and at 9-1 overall and 7-0 Big Ten, is atop the East Division. The Wolverines face Indiana on … [Read more...] about Is Michigan football a championship-level\u00a0team? ‘Oh, yeah’
