Golden Fairy Tale Classics - The Three Billy Goats Gruff

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Norway

Once upon a time there were three billy goats, who were to go up to the hillside to make themselves fat, and the name of all three was “Gruff.”

On the way up was a bridge over a cascading stream they had to cross; and under the bridge lived a great ugly troll , with eyes as big as saucers, and a nose as long as a poker.

So first of all came the youngest Billy Goat Gruff to cross the bridge.

“Trip, trap, trip, trap! ” went the bridge.

The Mysterious Pin The Trump Campaign Won’t Explain

David Morgante It probably identifies the people who protect him. When there are so many people who would like to do him harm its probably a good idea to have it so his people are easily recognizable.

Alan Shippee I would generally say you are correct it is a well-known fact that the secret service has a large book of lapel pins that they choose a different one every day and those who wear that pin are the ones that are allowed to actually be physically next to the president

Dom Price It’s a herald insignia. Possibly a symbol Trump intends to use for his political movement. Fascist regimes make heavy use of symbolism and badges to identify supporters. It’s likely to identify members of Trump’s inner circle, in much the same way the See More

Dave Emerson It identifies Trump private security staff, as well as campaign “inner circle” staff who are allowed to get close to Trump. The Secret Service uses the same method with a red pin. It’s an easy visual identifier to allow his security to pick out people who don’t belong quickly. Simply look at their left lapel, if they don’t have the pin there, they aren’t allowed close.

Amy Boring I volunteered at the Bernie Sanders rally in San Diego. They had them on too. It’s simply Campaign staffers. Much like a lanyard it made it easy to identify people that could move freely from place to place on the rally floor.

As much as I disagree with Trump this video is propaganda.

Frank Newberry Wow… people will go to any length to attack Donald J. Trump… or to cast a shadow of doubt around him… those are not Campaign aides… they are Secret servicemen… not affiliated with Trump’s campaign, but assigned to protect him

‘Three sides to every story’: Behind Trinity Mirror’s news-aggregation app

   

When launching a mobile news app, publishers don’t usually start by aggregating other publishers’ news. But that’s what Trinity Mirror is doing with its latest app, Perspecs.

The publisher, which already has 30 tablet editions and 14 news apps (Android and iOS) across its national and regional titles — including its biggest, Daily Mirror app — is now testing audience appetite for its own curation of third-party news and opinion aggregation.

The plan is not to offer breaking-news updates but to manually curate 10 stories from other publishers, which will run as a daily edition. Three different articles, often with opposing viewpoints, will run on each story, representing the left, neutral and right-wing political perspectives on the same story.

List-Construction as a Task and Resource

By Gail Jefferson

This report is a preliminary examination of lists occurring in natural conversation. It focuses upon the work which list-construction, as a task, allots to speakers, and some uses to which list-construction, as a resource, can be put by speakers.

The presence of three-part lists are first noted. Speakers and hearers orient to their three-part nature. The completed list can then constitute a turn at talk and the hearer can monitor the third component as a sign of turn completion. Lists can thereby’ be a conversational sequential resource.

By virtue of the three-part structure of some lists, members can orient to such matters as a “weak,” “absent,” or “missing” third part. Third items can be used to accomplish particular interactional work, such as topic-shifting and offense avoidance.

Further, a list can be constructed by more than one speaker. This feature may be used for a range of activities, including the achievement of interactional accord in situations of impending discord.
