By https://www.facebook.com/eilperin

The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said.

Gerard Pique launches his “Pique +” series

In January Gerard Pique launches his “Pique +” series on The Players’ Tribune website where he will interview footballers, including Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, and athletes from other sports. It would be fair to say that he has strong views on the media, and he sees his new platform as a place to talk about politics and sport.

[Billboard] The Best K-pop Songs of 2017: Critics’ Picks

Between the start of 2017 and its close, the K-pop world has notably fluctuated: prominent acts have disbanded or lost members, BTS has made history multiple times on Billboard charts and in the American music market, new sonic trends have risen to prominence and new artists found their place in the spotlight while others have faded away.But while K-pop in 2017 has been defined by change, one thing that’s always stable about the Korean music industry is that it always offers new and exciting songs. As in previous years, Billboard’s team took a look back at the best songs of 2017. Reflecting both personal tastes and chart achievements, this is our take on the best Korean music of the year – featuring tunes from some of the most popular acts, like Wanna One, IU and BTS, as well as some surprises from less-established artists.

11. Sons of People, “Never” (Produce 101 - 35 Boys 5 Concepts)

One of the most robust Korean releases of the year, “Never” came out of the latest season of Produce 101 as a one-off performance, but it endures thanks to its immense popularity. With layered vocals, powerful raps, and propulsive drops flowing into a blend of subtle, melodious instrumental elements and frenzied synths, the deep house track proved to be one of the best sonic moments of K-pop in 2017. Sons of People may not have lasted longer than an episode or two – though all but one member made it into the show’s final lineup to go on and become Wanna One – but they’ll certainly live on with this hit. – T.H.

1. Wanna One, “Energetic”

No one watching the K-pop scene can deny the power of Produce 101, the reality singing competition that whittles down 101 K-pop hopefuls to a temporary superband. Season 2 winners Wanna One perfected the sensational formula with their debut release, as “Energetic” utilized the EDM theme pervasive throughout the show, but in a slick, emotionally tinged style that allowed the guys to showcase their personalities and individuality. After watching the full season and voting these 11 individuals into their group, fans even got to choose “Energetic” as the single to release, picked over the more bombastic and aggressive “Burn It Up,” making Wanna One’s story all the more meaningful to their supporters.

Yes, “Energetic” is a pristinely produced, dynamic electro-pop gem that secures its performers as next-generation superstars. But all that went into its release – from the season-long support from viewers to the song’s genre and how fans got a personal say in the promoted song – all represent the different pieces that make “Energetic” more than just a powerful pop single. It has a deeper story and meaning, all making special hallmarks of a year-defining K-pop track that undeniably celebrates a key moment in the music scene’s history. – J.B.

— Official: Colton Haynes Is Returning To Arrow

“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper for a short arc on Arrow this year,” Executive Producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim said in a statement. “Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team. His short visit turns into something surprising when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences…”

So… this is how and why Thea departs Star City, eh?

Klonoa Chronicles #20
Hideo Yoshizawa, as promised, is going to tweet stories about when he was developing Klonoa games every Saturday in August. As much as I’d love to give a more accurate translation, I simply cannot. So for now a google translation is provided with the original Japanese. What is here shouldn’t be too hard to understand but again, I apologize.

クロノアクロニクル 第20回! 今回も語源についての裏話を。

Klonoa Chronicles #20! This time is the etymology of the backstory.

ファントマイルのスペルで気になった人はいませんか? PHANTOMILE。よく「O」を抜かす人がいるのですが、この語源は仏語のファントムと英語のマイルの合成語なんで、Oが入るのが正式なのです。

Is there anyone who was interested in spelling of Phantomile? PHANTOMILE. There are people who often omit the “O”, but this etymology is a compound word of the French word for “phantom” (fantôme) and English world “mile”, and it is formal for O to enter. (In Japanese, Phantomile would be pronounced Fantomairu.)

ファントムというのは「亡霊」とか「幻」という意味。元々はこれもラディア戦記からの引用だというのはあまり知られていませんね。 ラディア戦記が初めてファミ通に載った時、タイトルが「シャトー・ドゥ・ファントーム」といいました。フランス語で「幻の城」という意味です。

Fantôme means “ghost” or “phantom”. Originally it is not well known that this is a quotation from Radia Senki. When Radia Senki first appeared in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, the title was “Château de Fantôme”. It means “Ghost Castle” in French.

その後、「漢字混じりのタイトルに変更しろ!」というテクモの社長の鶴の一声で「ラディア戦記」に変更されました。もう商標も取ってファミ通にも載ってるんですが、と言ってもまったく聞く耳持たないので仕方なく変更。

After that, it was changed to “Radia Senki” by the then president of TECMO, “Change to the title mixed with kanji!”. Even though we already revealed the name in Famitsu, I had no say in the matter so I had to change it.

「シャトー・ドゥ・ファントーム」ってかなり気に入っていたんですけどね。 そこでこの話をすると、当時の部下の企画のK君が幻の国に、遠い所にあるという意味を込めて「マイル」を加えてファントマイルと命名してくれました。 つづく

I liked “Château de Fantôme” quite a lot, though. So when I told this story, K who was planning at the time, adds “Mile” to the name, meaning that it is far away, and thus was christened Phantomile. To be continued.
