Past Words of the Day

Refers to the gentrifying effect of the University of Pennsylvania on the West Philadelphia area.

1. Hafa Adai (pronounced "half a day") is "hello" in Guam's native Chamorro language. It's used more or less the same way as "aloha" is used as a greeting on the Hawaiian Islands.

2. Can also be close to "what's up" in its meaning. Just "hafa" is often used, but it's the informal usage.

New Orleans cemeteries (due to the high water table, people in New Orleans are buried above ground).

Tacoma's claim to fame, caused by the gross, caustic fumes from the local paper mill. Although sulfur emissions have been greatly reduced, the Tacoma Aroma can still be smelled in the city, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

Sarah Palin was the Wasilla mayor from 1996 to 2002. She was elected governor of Alaska in 2006 and has been wildly popular in her first term with about an 85% approval rating. She was recently selected by John McCain as his Vice-Presidential candidate in the 2008 election. She has since energized the conservative base, as Palin is both fiscally and socially conservative. The other side, however, has pointed out Palin's lack of experience--especially in foreign policy--as well as several questionable moves as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska. Included in those alleged scandals are "Troopergate", in which Palin is accused of wrongly fire the Alaska head of safety, as well as a controversial butting of heads with the Wasilla librarian over book-banning policy. Palin claims no wrongdoing in both cases.

Palin is a native of Idaho, but has lived the majority of her life in Alaska.
