encoding abbreviation    
Dear  fellow teachers,   
How should I understand the abreviation   for Rs. in the sentence : The maximum fine for cruelty under this legislation is only Rs. 100 ‒ so yes, it’s high time we did away with this archaic law. Thx for your reply.

Rs would normally be the rupee, Indian currency. Cheers, AB

Cheer up. We all have bad days. I ´m in a very unpleasant place at school at the moment due to no fault of mine so I totally understand. We cannot control what happens to us..only how we react to it.

Just a message to make you smile, dear colleagues :)   
This is the answering machine message the Pacific Palisades High School (California) Staff voted to record on their school telephone answering system.

This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children ´s absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children ´s failing grades changed to passing grades even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough school work to pass their classes. This was voted unanimously by the office staff as the actual answering machine message for the school:

"Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting the right staff member, please listen to all your options before making a selection:
  • To lie about why your child is absent, press 1
  • To make excuses for why your child did not do his work, press 2
  • To complain about what we do, press 3
  • To swear at staff members, press 4
  • To ask why you didn ´t get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you, press 5
  • If you want us to raise your child, press 6
  • If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone, press 7
  • To request another teacher for the third time this year, press 8
  • To complain about bus transportation, press 9
  • To complain about school lunches, press 0
  • If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework, and that it ´s not the teachers ´ fault for your children ´s lack of effort ... hang up and have a nice day!"

  Hahahahaha, gorgeous!
Sad things must be faced with humour; and good humour is the best way to make people understand ... unless they ´re dumb enough not to catch the message :)

Rhyming words   
Are hence and difference rhyming words?

26 Apr 2016

...There is 1 previous answer...

alien boy

For them to rhyme, you ´d have to pronounce the final ´ence ´ in difference the same way you do for for hence. You can force it as an artistic contrivance (as was often done in Elizabethan poetry, for example), but it would not sound like natural English to the majority of native speakers.


hence: hɛns
difference:  ˈdɪf(ə)r(ə)ns
The Wikipedia entry for rhyme is very good at describing all the different understandings of what constitutes a rhyme
Daria, to me neither ´chance´ (tʃɑːns) nor ´glance´ (ɡlɑːns) would rhyme with  ´hence´ (hɛns)
Some words that may rhyme with hence, depending on your accent, would be sense, cents, pence, tense, tents, fence
Here ´s a site that apparently specialises in rhyme: http://www.rhymezone.com/?loc=bar
You should be able to explore many alternatives using it!

Edit: here´s another interesting site specialising in pronunciation http://www.dictiome.com/

I haven´t thoroughly explored it yet, but I intend to soon!
