Interesting job: who's never dreamed of creating their own Atlantean language? :P
 
Language Needed for Book Series
Archaeologist and author Dr. Scott Viguié is looking for a language expert to create the Atlantean language for his Tex Ravencroft Adventures series. Book #1 of the series, The Tears of Poseidon, was released in August 2014. The story is told in an action adventure style evoking the pulp adventures of the ‘30s and ‘40s. While this is an adventure story care has been made to address as many aspects of the practice of archaeology as realistically as possible. The Atlantean language will appear for the first time in book #2, where it is learned that Atlantis’ chief export was its knowledge, thereby explaining scientific, technological, and cultural similarities throughout the younger civilizations.

Pretty nice for someone looking for a long-term collaboration!
 
Collaborator Needed to Further Develop Language for Theater Troupe
The Riddlesbrood Theater Company is looking for a long term collaboration with a language creator to further develop their conlang Brooding. Brooding is a central part of the troupe’s identity, and they wish to further extend its use in their various ventures. In order to achieve this, they need a language expert to further develop the language.

The Brooding language has already been developed by a conlanger, but that person lacks the time to collaborate on a monthly basis with the theater company, and for this reason they are looking for a conlanger to help them grow the language on a more consistent basis. The language is well documented, including a well-written grammar, a small lexicon, and a document on how to extend the language. The job of the new collaborator will be to familiarise themself with the existing material and extend it while keeping to the spirit of the language. Brooding is still a new language with a small vocabulary, so there is room for creativity, and the new collaborator will be given credit for their work as fit (including co-authorship as time goes on).
For full details, check out the link!

My thoughts exactly. Don't forget: without Israel's aggressions, there would be no Hamas.  Hamas was created as a reaction to Israel's illegal settlements. Israel created its own enemy, and now uses it as an excuse to oppress an entire people. Disgusting!
 
Israel simply doesn't give a fk of what UN says or does, because they know that they have the full support of US. They can bombard hospitals, schools, churches and kill innocent children, women and elders. They can use toxic gas and do whatever they want with the prisoners and their huge prison called Gaza.

This country is the epitome of nationalism, racism and apartheid politics. The true antizionist is the state of Israel and with the unfair and brutal treatment of Palestinians for decades, Israel created and sustained antisemitism around the world, and that's not fair for the Jews in general. Israel has the right to have a land, and so does Palestine. Palestinians are not second class citizens or second class humans, but yet they are treated as such. No people on earth could live under the conditions that Palestinians did and not take actions against their occupiers.

Yes, Hamas are radical Islamists and as an atheist it's obvious I don't support their cause to create a Sharia-based state. I don't support their kidnappings of Israelis and attacks against Israel, but I completely understand why Palestinians fight also with their weak militant forces against their occupier. It's been almost 50 years since the occupation began and year by year their land becomes smaller and smaller, their rights are ignored, Israel defies UN multiple times and goes on with settlements and makes a huge number of unilateral decisions enforced by brutal force alone. This unfair treatment cannot continue forever.

It's not about supporting a nation over the other. It's about supporting human rights for all, not only for the strongest one.

'But as for the question “Why aren’t there more female conlangers?”, I really have to say I feel the more accurate question is “Why weren’t there more female conlangers?”, because there are a ton of female conlangers now—much more than there were in the past.' -+David Peterson

In other news, I got my right ear pierced today :P . Was something I've been thinking of doing for years, but it was just today that the conditions were ideal and I actually went through with it.
After going through it, I'm now wondering why it took me so long to make that decision! I'm really happy with the result :).

Introduction
I'm French, living in the Netherlands with my husband. A language geek and a conlanger, I find linguistics fascinating, although in my daily life I'm an engineer. I'm a voracious reader, but you will also find me often watching Japanese anime and live-action series. I write, and you can find the results of my writing on my blog. I am also the current President of the Language Creation Society. And last but not least, I'm the proud owner of the sweetest dog in the world!
Bragging rights
I've directed 4 theatre plays and played in 3 others. I was also the local organiser of the 4th Language Creation Conference.
