Title: Error Spotting
Post by: adarqui on March 06, 2017, 06:53:53 pm
so.. just a potentially fun thread: if you find "errors" in something you read (with paid authors/writers), post em` here.

When reading, I often find spelling & grammatical errors. I actually report them back to the authors for fun - none of which have ever been fixed.. lmao. If this were "github" (where programmers live), you simply fork their repo, fix the typo, and send them a pull request. Programmers are happy to receive little fixes like that... Journalists or the companies they work for though? Doesn't seem like they notice the feedback - or they simply do not care.

anyway this isn't a typo/grammar thread to call anyone out, humans make mistakes.. these little mistakes are just fun to catch (IMHO). It feels somewhat like finding a small but mostly insignificant bug in a piece of software. Significant bugs would be things that would fail to actually fact check, that's a very different situation.

When I can't catch a single typo/grammatical error in a massive article, i'm extra impressed.

if you find any while you're reading (articles/books with professional authors/journalists/etc), drop em` here.



Kudos to anyone who finds the most obscure typo/grammatical error in a massive, yet beautifully written article.

I just remembered this.

1. NASA’S MISSING HYPHEN

The damage: $80 million

Hyphens don’t usually score high on the list of most important punctuation. But a single dash led to absolute failure for NASA in 1962 in the case of Mariner 1, America’s first interplanetary probe. The mission was simple: get up close and personal with close neighbor Venus. But a single missing hyphen in the coding used to set trajectory and speed caused the craft to explode just minutes after takeoff. 2001: A Space Odyssey novelist Arthur C. Clarke called it “the most expensive hyphen in history.”

yup exactly. most of their stuff was coded in C, fortran, cobol, ASM etc.. easy for stuff like that to happen.

- building infrastructure building
-- Furthermore, I would argue that everything Trump has done so far or plans to do fits perfectly well within the neoliberal model: massive tax cuts for corporations; cutting back Social Security, Medicare and essential social services; privatizing healthcare;
handing over the task of building infrastructure building to the private sector; and repressing immigrants by driving them underground or expelling them.

- There is no an external enemy to fight
-- There is no an external enemy to fight, the enemy is all the liberal institutions (which in a perverse way is exactly what Trump is saying too).

- "Cordesman says can't think" -> "Cordesman says *he* can't think"
-- Other than national security implications, Cordesman said, he can't think of any reason Sessions would keep mum about his contact with Russia's ambassador.

Fixed:

I think I commented on the tweet for that one. I forget though.

There's tons of little issues in the CIA "press release". I think this (and other choices of words like "infest" and "infested") could probably be used to point out the country of origin of the author(s).

Here are a few:

https://wikileaks.org/ciav7p1/#ANALYSIS
- should analyzed -> should be analyzed
-- Wikileaks has carefully reviewed the "Year Zero" disclosure and published substantive CIA documentation while avoiding the distribution of 'armed' cyberweapons until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should analyzed, disarmed and published.

- ten of -> tens of
-- These redactions include ten of thousands of CIA targets and attack machines throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States.

- &mdsh;
-- By hiding these security flaws from manufacturers like Apple and Google the CIA ensures that it can hack everyone &mdsh; at the expense of leaving everyone hackable.

- There are very considerably more -> There are considerably more

If you put my current zip code in as your location on LinkedIn, it autopopulates your location as "Federal Capial &AJK," which is wrong in a three ways:
1. Obviously, this is the federal capital. There is no such thing as capial.
2. There's no space between "&" and "AJK."
3. There's no logical basis for lumping AJK in with the Federal Capital. AJK is a disputed territory, claimed by Pakistan and India, which is at least a two-hour drive from Islamabad.

What the hell, LinkedIn?

President Donald Trump's White House has produced more than its share of spelling errors and other typos. This may seem trivial, and even ticky-tacky of me to point out. But I'd like to argue that these point to larger and more systematic problems in this administration.

I've seen a few articles related to that.. it's definitely a bad sign.

Above all, to me it indicates sloppiness. I pretty much proof read everything I write.. You've pointed out several typos from me over the years, most notably bear vs bare - lmfao. But for the most part, I enjoy proof reading what i've typed. If i'm sending out an important email to someone, i'll proofread it several times over.

So, all of the typos in the Trump administration point to rushed, sloppy, careless behavior. What & how we write, is a lens into our brain.

I've also had a theory that some typos are deliberate - but just some, not all. I feel like Bannon & Co. theorize that typos help create a bridge to the "common man" -> "hey, they're (Trump et al) just like me! I make typos too!" :/

most news sites seem to force HTTP (redirecting HTTPS to HTTP). insane:

https://www.cnn.com
https://www.msnbc.com
https://www.foxnews.com <- has HTTPS, but shows insecure because of mixed content
https://www.nbcnews.com
https://www.cbsnews.com

lol.. wtf?

here's a funny one, just for fun:

Most of these news sites are such crap .. mutant adware frankensteins. Look at this janky foxnews.com output:

Refused to execute script from 'https://d.agkn.com/pixel/2387/?ct=US&st=FL&city=0&dma=30&zp=&bw=4&che=2039274217&col=20088066,834537,201260254,401255557,78244429' because its MIME type ('image/gif') is not executable.

LMFAO.

back to https://www.foxnews.com .. tons of broken links when it's in HTTPS mode.

ie clicking Fox News Insider:

https://foxnewsinsider.com/

doesn't work at all, no server listening on 443.

other links that work, are using invalid certs.

hahaha:

first of all, read this because it is hilarious: https://www.scribd.com/document/355296510/ACLU-Brief-on-Behalf-of-John-Oliver

second of all, they misspell "squirrel" on page 9 of the document.
