"The Confederados represent a human treasure trove for modern-day linguists. Throughout the past century and a half, scholars have puzzled over what the Southerners of the Civil War era actually sounded like. The Brazilian descendants’ English, in the words of one latter-day rebel, has been “preserved in aspic”; in its purist form, it stands virtually frozen in time, reflecting the pronunciations and speech patterns of their forebears, dating from the third quarter of the 19th century."

Expats are good at preparing for their next exciting post, whether it’s in Burundi or Boston. They’ll study the language, find the best place to live, read up on the food, the climate, and the currency. But the deep, dark secret of the expat experience is that coming home – repatriation – can be even harder than leaving.

Web journalism. (h/t @stripesdcchief)
The best headline templates for maximizing readership can quickly become ubiquitous, over-familiar, and cloying to their own writers.

'They are approaching middle age with stories as complicated as the two countries that gave them life. Growing up with the face of the enemy, they were spat on, ridiculed, beaten. They were abandoned, given away to relatives or sold as cheap labor. The families that kept them often had to hide them or shear off their telltale blond or curly locks. Some were sent to reeducation or work camps, or ended up homeless and living on the streets. They were called “bui doi,” which means “the dust of life.” '

Quiz: Match the #dog  to the owner:
Do dogs really look like their owners? Put the theory to the test by trying to guess which dog from the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show belongs to which owner.

The Army hasn't charged Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn with a crime, but it has thrown him out of Special Forces and stripped him of a prestigious combat award.

Story
Introduction
I've been a print journalist, on and off, for the majority of my career, in both news and sports. I started my life in journalism as a part-time sports clerk at the Orlando Sentinel when I was a senior at university. That position eventually transitioned into a full-time copy-editing and page-design job when I graduated with a B.A. in journalism and minor in computer science. That was when the World Wide Web was still "browsed" with a text-only browser called Lynx. I hopped on board the 'Net in 1993 with the first computer I bought on my own, a Macintosh Quadra 605 (the first my family owned -- and the first one I taught myself simple BASIC coding on -- was an IBM PCJr).

Meanwhile, my interests outside of journalism include rowing, fitness and working out, so I decided my journalism backup plan would be to become a sports and medical massage therapist and work with athletes at local 5Ks and rowing events. So several years ago, I went to and graduated from massage school and became a licensed massage therapist (Florida license #MA44501).

It's an odd juxtaposition, but I'm blessed to have been able to pursue that second career. I currently have my hands back in career No. 1, so to speak, all the while keeping my massage license up to date "just in case." Time will tell how long my second stint in journalism lasts, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm a curator of content on science, animals, nature, journalism, technology and rowing. Just warning you. (And I actually am amused by animated GIFs, but I promise not to innundate you with those.)
