The evolution of the pronunciation of Byfuglien. | Markosun's Blog | Our Refugio | Scoop.it
I just call him Buff. Dustin Ray Byfuglien (/baɪfuːɡliən/ by-FOO-glee-ən or local /ˈbʌflɨn/ BUF-lin;born March 27, 1985) is an American professional ice hockey player for the Winnipeg Jets of the National Hockey League.
Alice Wujciak's insight:

My last name is 'Wujciak'.  In Poland, that was a normally spelled word which anyone would easily pronounce as / vwi - chak /.

 

In the U.S. it evolved into / wu - jack /.  Read about Mr. Byfuglien's name.

 

Can you see that the pronunciation is not obvious, and depends upon the nationality? How would you say it? How might Mr. Byfuglien feel about that?

The Most Powerful Thing About You -- Your Story

The Most Powerful Thing About You -- Your Story | Our Refugio | Scoop.it

Do you participate in Social Networking?


"The most powerful thing about you is your story. But don't talk about yourself all the time; you'll be a bore.

Well, that all depends on whether it is all about you bring the "center of attention" or the "center or exposure". "Exposure" mesans being vulnerable and also being willing to be changed by the story. That is what this article is really all about.

The questions posed here will help you keep on track and avoid situations where you end ups telling your story from your ego instead of the place of service. It is a great checklist to keep in your back pocket."

Alice Wujciak's insight:

I love these chalk drawings on the sidewalk. 

 

Here is where the artist is sketching it out. I think it shows clearly how it's done.  Remember, all the chalk lines are on the road!

Aubrey Smythe's curator insight, August 17, 2013 4:35 PM

Any business person knows that's it's often quite difficult to find good royalty-free images to use on a business website. Pixabay is a great resource. Just been through it briefly and I've already downloaded 2 or 3 images. No attribution and I'm quite happy with the creative commons licensing too: http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/deed.en ;
