Shame over Trump's Election » antworten
von polarjud (US), 2016-11-10, 04:32  like dislike  Spam?  
For my international friends, I would like to share my deep shame over America's vote.  I voted for Hillary.

I expected to see my American neighbour come over yesterday shaking with anger and disgust, but she is quite likely still curled up in bed sobbing. Quite a few American long-term residents of Australia, who had not taken out Australian citizenship, or even dual nationality, are saying that they now want nothing more to do with America. For those who missed earlier discussions see: #857949 and #858056.
I suspect that few Americans have any idea of the international repercussions that this will cause. And even fewer would care. After 1945, Britain had to get used to the idea that the Empire was going, going, gone. America will have to come to terms with the fact that, former industrial and military might notwithstanding, she has only about 4.5% of the world's population. Both India and China have more than one billion more people than the USA. America's hegemony is passing, like it or not, and the future belongs to Asia. Get used to it and plan to cope with it.

Not really related to the topic, but very interesting. Especially the median age of the population. From 47 in Japan to 15 in Niger. There must have been a terrible death rate there, but a lot of people are coming into breeding age.

We had a couple good 3rd party candidates, but they are shut out and usually underfunded.
It takes big money to win.  The two worst candidates had, or could get, the necessary money.

Nothing of this will really happen. remember Obama who wanted to close Guantanamo and failed.
Politics isn't that easy as Trump may think. And the "Establishment" he condemned will only be replaced by an other "Estalishment". As long we have democratically elected governments there will be a kind of "Establishment". That's just a part of the game. Trump managed it to convince the people that an "Establishment" is something evil.  We are all curios how he will explain his "Establishment" in 3 or 4 years.

In case no one looked it up (which probably nobody did), here's the quote from Thomas R. Marshall (Vice President from 1909 - 1913 who came from Indiana): "Indiana is the mother of Vice Presidents; home of more second-class men than any other state". Also: One of his favorite jokes was about a woman with two sons, one of whom went to sea and one of whom was elected vice president; neither was ever heard of again.

I always liked the Hoosier state, because Kurt Vonnegut (jr.) is among my favorite writers, but I guess his kind is gone.

Many people had high hopes when Adolf Hitler rose to power. He was greeted as a new savior. Since Trump is a narcissist, he will never admit in doing something wrong. So he will have to find another minority to blame for his failures. Since the Latino population is not really a minority, he will have to find others for his angry mob to kill.

At least, I know now why tech companies are so desperately researching Artificial Intelligence. The natural resources seem very scarce.

Trump won because people voted AGAINST Clinton.  This is the weakness of a 2-party system.
So we will see what happens.  I'm not in a state of dread, as some are.

It was obvious that if Trump won there would be a drop in share prices followed by a rise, the question being "how far". It was also likely that, if Clinton had won, there would have been a rise followed by a drop. For a smart trader with a lot of money, there was a fortune to be made over the past few days. (I am a holder, not a trader.)

A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B: Yes, they are. They are two different boys.

von timfefe (AU/AT), 2016-11-10, 01:49  like dislike  Spam?  
Agree with Catesse, there's a logical problem with B's reply in your EN original. Would this fit:

A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean WERE the same person. But (now I have realised that) they are not.
B: Yes, you are right. They are two different boys.
von spacer33 (UN), 2016-11-10, 01:51  like dislike  Spam?  
A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B. No, they aren't. They are two different boys.

Would that be correct?
No.  #858090
von Catesse (AU), 2016-11-10, 01:58  like dislike  Spam?  
No, I agree.
Your answer, "yes, they are" has no logical antecedent.
If you are replying to the statement "I thought J and D are the same person", then "yes, they are" would mean they are the same person, which contradicts the following statement: "They are two different boys."
If you are replying to "But they are not the same then", then "yes, they are (the same)"? reads as a contradiction of the statement, not agreement.
Does this help sufficiently?
Thank you, I am just not sure what you mean with the first sentence "No, I agree." to what do you agree?  #858091
von spacer33 (UN), 2016-11-10, 02:03  like dislike  Spam?  
And is this version correct?
A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B: No, they aren't. They are two different boys.
Not  #858095
von Catesse (AU), 2016-11-10, 02:25  like dislike  Spam?  
You would be agreeing with the negative statement "they are not the same".
von spacer33 (UN), 2016-11-10, 02:28  like dislike  Spam?  
So if the two boys are the same:
A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B: Yes they are. They are the same person.

And if the two boys are different:
A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B: No, they aren't. They are two different boys.

Are both versions correct?
von spacer33 (UN), 2016-11-10, 02:33  like dislike  Spam?  
And what did you mean with "No, I agree" 4; 01:58?
No, I agree.   #858098
von Catesse (AU), 2016-11-10, 04:28  like dislike  Spam?  
That would be OK. I think we have got a bit muddled here between quotes and comments. The problem lies in the response to the two original statements, one positive, one negative.
Your entry, 02,28. Your second entry is correct and clear. You are contradicting the first statement and agreeing with the second negative statement.
The first entry is correct. (Yes, they are.) But you might need to think for a moment to be sure what was meant. You are contradicting the second negative statement.
I hope that I have this right. I don't know whether your hear is spinning over this. Mine is.

I suppose, Catesse meant it as a heading at 04:28, i.e. to indicate that she is referring to it.
As to 01:58: I suppose she meant that your version wasn't right, referring to your question "Would that be correct?" (> "No,") and that she agrees with timfefe (> "I agree.")

von spacer33 (UN), 2016-11-10, 16:06  like dislike  Spam?  
But when 4;01:58 it was meant as an answer to my question "Would that be correct?" (> "No,") then this version is wrong? As this was the conversation I asked for after correcting my first version:

A: For a while I thought Jeff and Dean are the same person. But they are not the same then.
B. No, they aren't. They are two different boys.

Thank you so much, now hopefully the final step towards full understanding. I asked if this "correct version" was correct 4;01:51 and you answered 4;01:58 "No, I agree". What was the meaning of that? I hope we can solve it now. Would be very friendly if you can use easy language, I am German.

Korrekt kann man etwas nur 'auswendig können'.
Allerdings wird 'auswendig wissen' auch oft verwendet, vor allem bei Adressen, Telephonnummern etc, im Sinne von 'das brauch ich nicht nachschlagen, das weiß ich auswendig'.
'Auswendig kennen' wird umgangssprachlich auch verwendet. Es ist wahrscheinlich eine Zusammenziehung von 'das kenne ich' + 'und das kann ich auswendig'.

Es hängt ein bißchen davon ab, was man auswendig kann, weiß, kennt.
Man sagt tatsächlich eher 'ich weiß die Nummer' und nicht 'ich kann die Nummer'.
'Können' auf jeden Fall bei Liedern, Gedichten etc.
oder: Ich kenne die Bibel auswendig = eher: ich habe sie xmal von hinten bis vorne gelesen, bin sehr bibelfest
Ich kann die Bibel auswendig = ich kann den gesamten Text auswendig aufsagen.

I noticed that Vale began dancing with Josh, but they weren't stuck as they usually did, she kept her distance, so he asked her if everything was okay. I moved a few steps in a clumsy way, perhaps because of the heels that I wasn't used to wear, but I wasn't also a big fan of loud thumping nightclubs and all that mess in that room.

I had noticed that this user was also using the nick "SouSou" and was using Italian on other forums, but I did not think to look for this on DE-IT in dict.

"Or would this be too drastic?" I'm not sure. -- At least, (s)he thanked for answers at the beginning and gave a own try (at least if (s)he was asked to post one), but on the other hand it's a bit strange that (s)he deletes sometimes the text out of his/her questions when they are answered and that (s)he post them on several sites (without thanking), too. Another thing which is strange, are the language skills of this person. In the IT-DE-Forum, (s)he's "Halbitalienerin", at Italian native speaker and so on. I myself will only give the standard answers anymore if (s)he is asking without an own try etc.
But it's Paul decision as he see's if (s)he is posting with other nicknames, too.

Regarding the IPs it's not so easy in this case, because it's not one IP, it's a dynamic IP range, but all from one provider. (That means when users connect to the internet, they get a random IP assigned by the internet provider.)

There are 13 user accounts on that use IPs from this range (meaning they are using this internet provider in Switzerland). That includes Toffifairy and S0USOU. The others are most probably not connected to these two accounts. So, in order to block that user I would have to block other (innocent) users as well. I can do that, but only if it's really necessary.

Now Trump is the President-Elect, even the most stand-offish Republicans seem to warm to him and to the careers he may have in store for them.  #858068

Lady Macbeth, on the other hand, is equally unlikely to stage a comeback in US and in Scots politics.
The Donald sounded quite resolute about pressing the case against Lady Macbeth, but for this delightful operation he will have to be in office.  #858071

incredulous more like. But established Democrats and Republicans must have worked out by now that they did not govern for the majority of the electorate, especially as the Republicans retained majority in both houses. At least the US is in a better position than the UK with regards to protectionism. Interesting times ahead.

I find it remarkable that some people seemed to have voted for him because he is not a politician. Politikverdrossenheit? As Martin Schulz, president of the EU parliament, said - campaigning is not the same as governing. In German "die Suppe wird nicht so heiß gegessen, wie sie gekocht wird".....

bei einem Satz komme ich leider nicht weiter wie ich den im Englischen sage, ich hoffe, ihr könnt weiterhelfen!? ;)

"Der Preis ist zu 80% ausschlaggebend für die Entscheidung." oder auch (gleiche Bedeutung):
"Der Preis hat einen Anteil von 80% bei der Entscheidungsfindung."

Lässt sich sicher auch anders formulieren, wichtig ist aber die Bedeutung.

Danke euch! :)

The best I can come up with is:
the price is 80% of the reason for [making] the decision
I sometimes translate "ausschlaggebend" as "the decisive factor", but I can't think of a way to link "(decisive) factor" and a percentage.
The price had an 80 per-cent share in determining the decision taken.  #858057

80% of the decision making is based on price.

"We met at a drop-in for the Nursing Home ..."
Aus dem Kontext geht hervor, es handelt sich um freiwillige Helfer in einem Altersheim, die kommen und gehen können wie sie wollen.
Gibt es da einen deutschen Begriff? "Stippvisite" fällt mir ein, aber das passt hier nicht. Sonst muss ich ein wenig umschreiben, kein Problem, aber beim Suchen habe ich auch noch "Christmas drop-in" gefunden, so ein Kurzbesuch auf einen "eggnogg" z.B. und da müsste man auch umschreiben: "schauen Sie auf ein Gläschen (oder einen Sprung) herein (kommen vorbei), aber ein wirkliches deutsches Äquivalent haben wir nicht oder habe ich einfach nur ein Brett vorm Kopf?

It's probably short for "drop-in centre" Google: drop-in centre
a place run by a welfare agency or charity where people may call casually for advice or assistance.
If it's an event, then it means an event where you don't need a prior appointment to attend, and is likely to be something along the lines of an event at a day centre for the elderly designed to increase social contact (for instance a coffee morning).
