Are you a fan of the serial comma? If so, you'll be happy to know that a missing comma determined the outcome of a recent court case.

"The House voted to replace the words 'hearing impaired' and 'deaf and dumb' from state law and replace it with hard of hearing, deaf or deaf blind.

According to an analysis of the bills, the terms in current state law are outdated and offensive and hearing impaired implies that a person is somehow broken.

'The deaf community often feels left out of just about everything because they have such difficulty communicating and hearing what’s going on,' said state Rep. Jim Runestad, R-White Lake, a sponsor of one of the bills."

"Speaking more than one language has been shown to not only impart knowledge and cultural understanding but to come with health benefits such as mental agility. One study even showed a 4-5 year delay in the onset of dementia in bilingual older adults.

But what hasn’t been studied is if learning a minority language—one that is not dominant in a community—can have the same effects as learning a major language. Researchers explored this at this weekend’s annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science."
