Occasionally, We Get Internal Pronunciation Emails

npr:

Hi there

As we approach the Scottish referendum, may I please remind you that the correct pronunciation of Edinburgh is <ED-in-BURR-ah>

+++ if you are Scottish you can say ED-in-BRAH  +++

However it is NOT a an animal’s den “–burrow” or a  large lump of ice    “-berg”

Cheers 

Kevin*

An imaginary conversation between Terry Gross and Gwyneth Paltrow: http://nyr.kr/1jw1hLT

PALTROW: It’s always a pleasure to be here. Remind me that I have some Tracy Anderson DVDs and a few samples of Restorsea in my bag for you.
GROSS: Oh, thank you, thank you. I’ll try to put those to use. So, I gotta ask: Is conscious uncoupling anything like jazz?

For one week. J.P. Morgan promoted a “Twitter Q&amp;A” where people could ask questions to one of its executives, who would then answer them on the J.P. Morgan account for an hour on Wednesday.
When it started receiving questions like the ones seen above, J.P. Morgan canceled the event.

Twitter Q&amp;As are not good ideas when you’re hated.
