10 Words That “The Simpsons” Invented

10 Words That “The Simpsons” Invented | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
When I was little, I didn’t need a watch. I mean, I eventually bought one (what 7-year old can resist a Scooby Doo wristwatch that sings the show’s theme song at the press of a button?) but I didn’t really need it because I measured my days in Simpsons episodes. A 2-hour car ride was always “4 Simpsons episodes” and an 8-hour school day was “one season of The Simpsons.” It was a quirky quality, one which foreshadowed my interest in television and my disinterest in clowns with raspy voices. Aside from claiming the spot as the longest-running animated sitcom on television, The Simpsons has also left a deep impact on American popular culture through its collection of fictional vocabulary words. For example: 1) Tomacco (n.): a hybrid of tomato and tobacco I’ve witnessed a handful of disturbing things in my life. And yet, one memory that always comes back to me is that of the “tomacco” Simpsons episode, in which Bart and Homer engineer a line of ...

Delicious Home-Cooked Meals from Grandmothers Across the Globe

Delicious Home-Cooked Meals from Grandmothers Across the Globe | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
If there's one thing that reminds us of home, it's the thought of a wonderful, home-cooked meal by Grandma in her cozy kitchen. Since we last posted about Gabriele Galimberti's Delicatessen with Love series in 2012, the Italian photographer has visited even more grandmothers from across the globe, inviting them to share their signature dishes with the rest of the world. Each heartwarming diptych consists of a portrait of the grandma surrounded by the raw ingredients in her home, accompanied by a close-up shot of the delicious meal.
Galimberti, who photographed grandmothers in 58 different countries for this series, was struck by the idea before he embarked on a globetrotting trip for his couch surfing project. To ensure that he had at least one good meal before leaving, the photographer's grandma prepared a dish of ravioli for him before his departure. "In that occasion I said to my grandma, 'You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really…
