"Since 2004, I’ve been compiling multiple lists of sewing term definitions. It’s the writer in me. And the sewer. And the list-maker. I have problems! Actually, my biggest problem is that my computer files are all over the place: two laptops, one desktop, two external hard drives, one Dropbox account, Google Drive, etc. AHHH!! The organizer in me (I may have a touch of OCD, too) has known for a while that I need to eventually amalgamate my lists. So… here goes! Below, I’ll keep a master glossary of sewing terms. If there’s anything I’ve forgotten (I’m committing to this for the long haul!), please let me know in the comments below. I’ll add to this list regularly to keep it up to date so it can act as a go-to for sewing definitions!"
"What's the difference between a college and a university? Who are undergraduate students versus graduate students? What's the FAFSA? Studying in the United States can be confusing if you don't fully understand the words used in U.S. higher education. With that in mind, U.S. News has compiled a glossary of important terms specifically for international students and parents. While this list is not exhaustive, it offers a key starting point as you explore the best U.S. universities for you."
"Small-scale and domestic solar energy installations are widely used but only little attention has been given to the associated occupational safety and health (OSH) aspects so far. Many workers’ groups in various types of workplaces and sectors are involved with such systems. The E-fact 68 provides information on the work-related risk factors and OSH issues associated with domestic and small-scale solar energy installations across their life cycle. The document was already published in English and is now available in the following additional languages: EL | ES | FR | IT | PL |PT The E-fact 69 aims to help identify the potential hazards to workers’ safety and health from small-scale and domestic solar energy systems throughout their life cycle, from manufacturing, installation and maintenance to decommissioning and recycling. It also gives examples of preventive measures to address these hazards."
"With a whole new year ahead, politics and economy experts are discussing again the need to bring Europe’s monetary union to its “logical conclusion” by “creating a true banking union with depositor protection and a European investment fund”.
That’s because EMU (European Monetary Union) is, for now, more theoretical than practical: for example, an unintended consequence of recent years was the formalization of two parallel (euro-denominated) currencies in Greece, which, combined with a punitive taxation, produced “unforeseen incentives for informal transactions in a country that ..."
"Two days into the COP21 Paris climate talks, and there has been no shortage of presidential speeches, big-dollar financial commitments and haggling over policy proposals. Unless you're a real climate change wonk, however, it can be tough to understand what's actually going on. At a high level, national delegates are looking to agree on individual emissions reduction targets and new mechanisms to increase accountability for climate commitments. Big business also has been brought into the fold of the United Nations proceedings more than ever before, with the government looking to corporations and NGOs to help hit new climate targets."

We have begun to compile an on-line glossary of the architectural terms used in our reports on the buildings which we record. Although the timber-framing terms will not seek to be as comprehensive as the glossary published by the Council for British Archaeology (see Booklist) our glossary will also include terms used in Brick & Stone buildings. We plan to provide photographs in addition to line drawings to llustrate actual occurrences of some of the features described, but while the glossary is being compiled some terms will be undefined or not illustrated . We hope visitors to this website, and particularly those newly interested in the subject of Domestic Architecture, will find this new component of our website both helpful and instructive."
"TourisTerm is the terminological database of the translators of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). In addition to showing equivalent terms in the five official languages of the Organization (Arabic, English, French, Russian and Spanish), some records contain definitions, links to online references and other useful information.
Furthermore, thanks to an agreement with the International Forum of Travel and Tourism Advocates (IFTTA), we have also added this organization’s English glossary."
"Ce lexique germano-français et franco-allemand des termes pédagogiques est destiné prioritairement aux enseignants et aux professeurs stagiaires de l’IUFM de Créteil et de ses partenaires allemands des universités et écoles supérieures de pédagogie, ainsi qu’à tous ceux qui sont engagés dans les échanges entre la France et l’Allemagne avec l’objectif de formation de citoyens européens. Il propose la traduction de la plupart des termes utilisés couramment dans les deux systèmes éducatifs que l’on ne trouve que difficilement dans les dictionnaires, permettant ainsi d’approcher au plus près les réalités pédagogiques respectives et de les comparer."
"The French Government has just published a Guide pratique pour une communication publique sans stéréotype de sexe. It has been produced by the Haut conseil à l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes (HCEfh).
The 36-page guide gives a summary of relevant European and national legislation and guidelines on the subject, briefly addresses arguments against the feminisation of terms, and then shows how to apply the guidelines, together with further references. There are also a number of “right & wrong” examples."
