Dear Forum members.
May you kindly explain " incentivising inappropriate use".
I read it many times in different newspapers which is regarding contraceptive medicine.
Kindly elaborate this specific phrase.
Thank you so much.

Topic: Political Narrative

Dear Forum Members.
May you kindly explain me the term Political narrative as used in the below sentence:

This victimization of the victim, a political strategy the BJP has near-perfected, helps them to keep control of the political narrative and also consolidate its support base at the cost of social peace and cohesion.

Thank you so much.

Topic: Semi colon
Posted: Sunday, April 16, 2017 3:57:46 AM
Dear Forum Members.
I am confused that why the semicolon is used after Oregon, Washington and Texas in the first sentence of the two and not using the same in the second sentence.

“In less than 10 years, I have lived in Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Paris, Texas; Denver, Colorado; and Washington, D.C.” (correct)
“In less than 10 years, I have lived in Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington, Paris, Texas, Denver, Colorado , and Washington, D.C.” (incorrect)

Thanks.

Topic: Pouched over the slackness in her gut
Posted: Wednesday, February 08, 2017 3:50:09 AM
Dear Forum Members.
May you kindly explain me the following:

(1) She wore a sleeveless silk dress that pouched a little over the slackness in her gut.

(2) I would not miss it. I am hedging my spiritual bets , in case the Samaritans are right.

(3)If you are a child growing up in China in the late nineteens- eighties, you learn fairly early the universe of things that was less than dependable: hot water , the bus schedule and most irritatingly--if you were introverted second grader--the capricious offerings of the itinerant book cart. But one aspect from our lives, from birth until, it seemed to me , death, remained as constant as the sun rise.

Thanks.
