SovereignVoice's insight:

Kate McClymont on being an “incorrigible gossip” and an ASIC addict,

'gossip'

The term is sometimes used to specifically refer to the spreading of dirt and misinformation,. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gossip

Modern media

In 2012, a 16-year-old named Amanda Todd committed suicide after a long string of gossiping and bullying both online and at school. Her parents moved her to different schools to try to solve her problems. "Slut shaming" is a type of gossip when one person's perceived sexual behaviors go against group social mores. In Todd's case, the gossip about her continued at all the schools she attended. This type of gossip is inherent in girl bullying. Such attacks can start online, in school or in person. Gossip and bullying are almost alwayslinked, leading to great emotional harm to the victim. We know about Todd from a video she put online in social media telling her story, shortly before she committed suicide.

King Plates

King Plates | Sovereign Voice | Scoop.it
In the early days of colonial Australia the governors and the land holders saw advantage in singling out certain Aboriginal people as leaders and distinguishing them in some way, so as to ensure their cooperation in the Europeans' efforts to open up the land. A type of mili-tary gorget was chosen as a suitable badge of office. It had already been used in North America for the same purpose. In Australia these became known as 'king' or 'brass plates'. They were presented not only to perceived 'chiefs' but to faithful servants and to the specially courageous -- to anyone, in fact, who helped in some way to ease the white people's progress in the new land. They were presented from the earliest times through to the first decades of the twentieth century. The main purpose of this book is to describe and illustrate the large collection of Aboriginal gorgets held by the National Museum of Australia. But the author, Jakelin Troy, has produced far more than a mere catalogue. She gives a comprehensive history of king plates, describes other gorgets not in the collection, and provides a list of references to pictures of Aboriginal people wearing gorgets. She also includes a useful bibliography. "King Plates" provides not only encouragement to scholars to engage in research in an area that has had little attention, but to Aboriginal people seeking information about their forebears.
