He was suppressing a part of his Indian roots, his culture, so he could fit in in Australia. That is the thing that I did growing up in London. When I went to school. It was only when I went to shoot Slum dog that I experienced this country and could appreciate.

Imitating or understanding? Previous research has shown that children use articles, such as a and the, early and in an overwhelmingly correct way. But, Frank says, it is difficult to sort out whether children are just imitating adults or if they actually understand that articles should be used before nouns like dog or ball—and can use them appropriately with new nouns that are unknown to them. To address that difficulty, the team created a new statistical model to measure changes in a child's grammar over time. The model relies on Bayesian inference, a method that helps estimate the level of certainty in results. In addition, it takes into account the relationship between what the child says and what the child has heard from adults, separating imitation from generalization. Team puts weird' grammar on the map Researchers applied this model on data sets available for 27 toddlers and found that rule-based grammatical knowledge in their speech wasn't constant and was more present in older children.

Some people need a really good dose of karma sometimes! A comedian who was confronted with an extremely thoughtless and careless woman at the airport had the best revenge for her awful behavior. Related: #BootBae Is The Most Dramatic Viral Saga Of 2017 In a story posted to Reddit , Steve Hofstetter chronicled the HIGHlarious tale of how he gave a woman her comeuppance after she let her dog poop inside LAX and didn't clean up afterwards! Hofstetter related how the woman had been "loudly face-timing with her back to the dog" and didn't notice that her pup was going number two. When a man pointed it out to her she just rolled her eyes at him. When she walked away without picking up the poop, another woman asked her if she was going to clean it up, and our lovely antagonist said, "They have people for that." The gall!!! The story got even better when Hofstetter got to his gate and saw the same woman loudly listening to music without headphones.

The existence of daggits, the original Battlestar Galactica's space-dog, bought that show a special place in my heart. I just learned Muffit the daggit was played by a chimpanzee, named Evolution, in a really uncomfortable suit. I spent a lot of years thinking "Galactica knew humanity couldn't survive without dogs!" not knowing they'd jammed a monkey in a hot suit to make the point. Sigh.

In today’s Fiver: Claudio Ranieri, a Mexican stand-off and the Dele fail Winning is for losers. That’s why The Fiver follows the Mr Roy survival plan for getting along in today’s dog-eat-dog world. Keep expectations at a minimum, avoid pressure at all costs, embrace mediocrity. Let it wash over you. Easy does it. No one will expect anything from you if you dont give them a reason to. You wouldnt catch Mr Roy doing anything as silly as actually winning the Premier League with Leicester, would you? In fact, he wouldnt dream of doing it anywhere. You only need to look at history to see how dangerous it is to win a trophy. Like Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini and José Mourinho before him, Claudio Ranieri is merely the latest manager to win the Premier League and receive his P45 less than a year later. Even Manchester United spied a chance to get rid of Lord Ferg when they found out David Moyes was available in 2013 (it’ll all come out one day). Continue reading...
