Thanks Clare for sharing.

Experience shows that nearly every locally or globally relevant event 'stirrs up' the language in some way.

Be it election campaigns, natural (or other, indeed) disasters, new scientific discoveries, etc.; they make our job frustrating and painful at times, but think of the 'creative factor'!
