Manic Monday

It’s the start of a new week and some of us may have the Monday Blues.

No one likes getting back into the grind of work or school but don’t worry because things will pick up through the week; one way or another.

Have a Manic Monday, everyone!

The Tuesday Talk – University of Texas should have used Ginger Software

In case you haven’t already heard, a very embarrassing typo error occurred on a program brochure at one of the University of Texas’ commencement ceremonies. The typo occurred on the front page of the brochure: Lyndon B. Johnson School of ‘Pubic’ Affairs.

To paraphrase from the article by Eric Pfeiffer, it is interesting to note how much fuss the omission of one letter can lead to. The university’s public affairs assistant dean issued an apology, everybody went into overdrive when the mistake was realized, and they went to work to reprint it.

The critics of the world will no doubt be expressing their outrage at the fallibility of others. Although it it is probably bad karma to revel in someone else’s unintentional mistake, truth be told, they should have used Ginger Software, which would have prevented this snafu from ever coming into existence.

The free Grammar & Spell Checker would have detected a contextual error in the use of the word ‘pubic’ in the sentence: Lyndon B. Johnson School of Pubic Affairs.

So do consider using Ginger Software because you can never be too careful. Moreover, it’s free, seriously.
