Guess I'll have to stop watching The Today Show.  They, as well as GMA, do almost daily royal stories.  I'm sure they'll move them into the first half hour, which is usually reserved for hard news.  They've obviously done research that viewers eat that up.

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy that is different from the more common nausea and vomiting known as morning sickness. Dehydration, malnutrition, and other serious complications are the result of the "unrelenting, excessive pregnancy-related nausea and/or vomiting that prevents adequate intake of food and fluids."[1] Hyperemesis is considered a rare complication of pregnancy but, because nausea and vomiting during pregnancy exist on a continuum, there is often not a good diagnosis between common morning sickness and hyperemesis. Estimates of the percentage of pregnant women afflicted range from 0.3% to 2.0%.[2]

ABC World News led with this story.  I think that is absurd! 

They had experts saying women who have HG are more likely to have a girl or twins.  Then, they went into the need for a c-section, and then obviously one will be delivered first.  So, that child will be the next in line, bumping Harry.  And, of course, they had to discuss how Kate drank water recently for a toast, instead of wine like everyone else.

I wouldn't be surprised if this health issue is all made up.  I mean, they need a compelling story, so they look like everything isn't perfect and they have the same issues as everyone else.  ;)

Seriously, I was kinda disappointed William wasn't staying by his wife's bedside and sleeping there.  It isn't like he has to punch a clock to support his family.  Perhaps she didn't want him there.  See, I've already been sucked into this story, when I loathe the coverage.  I suppose it is like people who say they hate negative campaign ads, but use them to make voting decisions.

Good Lord, Theodora. The future King is not going to stay overnight in some bed bug infested NHS shit hole. Ms. Middleton is a commoner and used to roughing it. I just hope those kindly nurses are pumping her body with some extra feeding tube protein so she doesn't walk out looking like Bride of Skeletor.

It was a joke meech.

When this story first broke I actually went to the trouble of looking up the King Edward VII Hospital and it said on wikipedia that it was private. Now, of course this being the UK where they don't know how to speak proper English and call french fries "chips", private schools "public schools" and really, really fuck up the pronunciation of "aluminium" maybe, just maybe, a private hospital actually what a Socialist Workers Party NHS hospital is called.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who was working on reception when Australian DJs made prank call, dies in suspected suicide

How awful.
Poor, poor woman- she didn't do anything wrong (I don't think it was even her who said anything about the patients condition, she just put the call through) No one got hurt.

My thoughts are with her family.

She was obviously already troubled.  It is awful, but I don't think the DJs are to blame.  It was a harmless prank call.  If it gets to where they can't do prank calls, then I guess everything is off limits.  Did she grow up in a Japanese family?

That link is only measuring by post-secondary education so it's not a very accurate measurement of overall education comparisons. You'd have to use several more markers (less than high school, high school only diploma, etc.) for a useful comparison then aggregate them. Plus it's very difficult to compare what a high school graduate in the US knows upon receiving their diploma with what someone knows once they pass the standard baccaulaureat in France, etc.

As someone with a post-secondary education you should know this.

Jan

Are you serious?  I'm not saying her suicide is funny.  I am saying it was a harmless (or should have been) prank call.  If someone made a prank call telling someone a family member died, then I would say that was outrageous and vile.  If that person committed suicide after being told his wife died, then I would say we could blame the people making the prank call.  Calling pretending to be the Queen doesn't rise to that level.  I am saying these DJs shouldn't be blamed for her suicide. 

If making a prank call pretending to be the queen is off limits, then everything is off limits.  The nurse had to already be very troubled.  From what I understand, she isn't even the nurse who gave info about Kate.  She was the nurse who transferred the call to the nurse.

My thoughts exactly. So sad and shocking. She put the call through, when she shouldn't have, or wouldn't have if she knew better. A tiny error in judgment anyone could have made.

Given that Potassium is pronounced as "pota-see-um", Magnesium as "magnee- see-um", and so on and so forth, logically "Aluminium" should also be pronounced likewise.    :)

Like a cab driver in Manhattan?

There is no one Indian accent. Fluency in English varies with economic status as well as with different regions of India depending on whether one comes from a large city or a small town or village somewhere. The majority of educated Indians from big cities would speak English fluently but tend to freely mix in their own Indian regional language when speaking to each other, although most are well-capable of conversing free of colloquialisms. Since India is home to several regional languages English also functions as a "link language" between people from diverse parts who would otherwise have no local language in common.

An Indian who goes to NYC to become a cab driver would likely belong to a vastly different socio-economic background as compared with a dentist trainee in the US of Indian origin, and they'd speak entirely different brands of English; perhaps some of these cab drivers only learn English after arriving in the US.

I suspect I've given an overly long response to a facetious question but anyhow, here it is.  :)

Incidentally (according to wiki), India also has the largest number of English speakers after the US (and rising), most of whom speak it as a second or third language though. And quite badly, if I may say so myself.

The status of English in India is very complex, it's not by any stretch a foreign language but it's not quite native either, even though it is for a certain segment of people. The accents range from a refined sort resembling British RP to one possessing a distinctly vernacular flavour and which sounds very little like English to a native English speaker.

I basically realize all of that darling, but then explain if you will why I had to drop a classed in mathematics as a freshman at Penn State because the Indian professor's accent was indescifrable. And I wasn't alone -- probably half of us dropped out of the class by the early cut-off date. Isolated example I admit, but I can't imagine she was from a lower caste. But you're right -- the paltry 1% of immigrants from India are vaishyas (traders caste) while I'm sure someone in higher education is from something else. Still, nobody can understand them :)

From what I've read the industry nationally that Indians dominate in is motel ownership. Like to the tune of 70%, and this is mostly from Indians who migrated in the 80's and 90's.

And while we're at did you know that most porn shops in NYC are run by Sri Lankans? I know I'm cheating for blaming India for this, but it's still fascinating :)

From what I've read the industry nationally that Indians dominate in is motel ownership. Like to the tune of 70%, and this is mostly from Indians who migrated in the 80's and 90's.

And while we're at did you know that most porn shops in NYC are run by Sri Lankans? I know I'm cheating for blaming India for this, but it's still fascinating :)

You had to drop the class because you were a big dummy and upset because Sandusky would not pay any attention to you.

I think the accent is beautiful when Indians speak English . There is a man at my dentist office that's an intern learning to be a dentist , hes from India and so very handsome . When he talks to me with that accent my heart does laps in my underwear  ;) .

Indian accented English is wonderful, I agree.

What I feel dense about at the moment is I still don't get how the title of the thread matches the story.   :o

William was such a handsome young man. Maybe he'll rally for a good looking and bald 30's.  He looks happy in so many pictures these years.  I'm glad he married Kate - he seemed to want it for a long time, wasn't it her who played a bit hard to get?  Also it would seem to be a love match and they really got close before they finally made it to the alter. 

James Middleton was looking foxy this week.

I'm a bit hard of hearing so I'm forever asking people to repeat themselves . I hate for people from other country's to think I cant understand them simply for the accent so I hide my embarrassment with humor and tell them I don't hear well and they are going to have to yell at me like Americans do to them when they think they cant speak English .

It never fails to work and get a nod and a laugh .

How does this relate?  Anyway, he's provided me many hours of diverting entertainment, this "model". In 15 minute bursts.   8)

Child please. I can't understand you half of the time when we're on the phone. Your accent is worse than any Indian's. It's like needing subtitles to watch Mayberry R.F.D..

Have we ever spoke on the phone without your ears stuffed full of Klonopin residue ? . It also may be heard to make out what I'm saying hanging out the window of your tenement chain smoking .

You don't sound like Padma when you speak?



LOL.  That's exactly how I'd picture Space!  Colour me vexed.


the Indian professor's accent was indescifrable.


Gerrrrl, you're hanging out too much with las colombianas and dominicanas by La Roosevelt.  The word you were trying to come up with was undecipherable, but you used the Spanish word instead  :)


Oh, completely related to this fiscal cliff thread... any updates as to whether that nurse who fell for the prank call actually killed herself?  Or was she conveniently eliminated by some perverse branch in charge of security for the British monarchy?

LOL, I was also going to point this out but then I remembered not so long ago Miss P used the word "irregardless" instead of just "regardless" so I assumed it was some sort high-flying lingo I couldn't understand.  ;D

They are mostly traders from the Gujarat State in Western India. They have a strange accent in which "cock" and "coke" are homophones.
