Melons, including honey dew, casaba and cantaloupe, contain the SOD enzyme. Wheat, corn and soy sprouts also have high concentrations of SOD. However, stomach acids and digestive enzymes easily destroy the SOD molecule, leaving effectively no SOD to enter the bloodstream.
Zolpidem is used to treat insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep). Zolpidem belongs to a class of medications called sedative-hypnotics. It works by slowing activity in the brain to allow sleep.
The earliest references describe a piper, dressed in pied (multicolored) clothing, leading the children away from the town never to return. In the 16th century the story was expanded into a full narrative, in which the piper is a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizenry refuses to pay for this service, he retaliates by turning his magic on their children, leading them away as he had the rats
Hi jwj, there are bookmarklets and plugins for looking up words from any web page, and a bookmarklet for adding a word to a list from any page (they're all linked to on the tools page). Something similar that let you highlight text and feed it straight into the comment form is a fine idea.
If anyone wants to whip up a bookmarklet or plugin, we'd happily feature it on the tools page :-)
I just got another idea which has hopefully and most likely already crossed your mind. Maybe you can make a deal with firefox so wordnik users can easily post example sentences to wordnik. Maybe we wordnik users don't have to wait for the wordnik admin's to post more example sentences, maybe we can help you do it. Example sentences are more useful when they're in the context the user is interested in, right?
I recently started playing 'words with friends' on the iphone. I'm trying to think of an innovative iphone game that could be developed with wordnik. A way to share new words with friends, test each others vocabulary...
Also, are you going to turn this site into a social site down the road? I hope it can remain simple and professional. I would hate this site if it had tons of advertising on it. But it would be cool to be able to do more with the Zeitgeist page. I like how you can view recently listed words. There is a lot of worthless stuff on there though, a lot of dumb comments, useless words. Can you follow lists? and get updates sent to your profile when a list as been updated? Would it be a good idea to put a book club section in here somewhere? It would be cool to list highly recommended books on vocabulary building, communication, etymology, linguistics, semantics etc.
Feature suggestion: put usage statistics in the definition. let us know how often each definition is used. E.g. definition 1 is used 20% of the time, definition 2 is used 80% of the time with this particular word. Also, this word is used incorrectly 30% of the time.
I noticed on the bottom of the wordnik site it appears you can view words alphabetically, however it's ordered based on occurrences, not the alphabet. When can we view words alphabetically like an old fashioned dictionary?????
