Ben Nuckols, Associated Press Updated 12:29 am, Friday, June 1, 2018 Now Playing: 14-year-old Karthik Nemmani of McKinney, Texas won the Scripps National Spelling Bee. He correctly spelled "koinonia" after runner up Nasya Modi misspelled "Bewusstseinslage." He is the 14th consecutive Indian-American champion. (June 1) Media: Associated Press OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — The end of the biggest Scripps National Spelling Bee in history came abruptly, and it wasn't the conclusion that many expected. Naysa Modi, a poised and charismatic four-time participant whose long spelling career seemed to be building toward triumph, sat next to a newcomer whom she had already beaten this year — at the county level. But 12-year-old Naysa blinked immediately, mixing up the single and double "s'' in the German-derived word "Bewusstseinslage" — a state of consciousness or a feeling devoid of sensory components — and 14-year-old Karthik Nemmani seized an … [Read more...] about Dallas duel: Wild card turns tables at National Spelling Bee

OXON HILL, Md. -- Forty-one spellers have advanced to the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee out of a field of 516, by far the biggest in the 93-year history of the competition. The finalists were announced Wednesday after two days of onstage spelling during which nearly 200 spellers were eliminated for getting words wrong. Scores on a written spelling and vocabulary test determined who advanced to the finals. There were no perfect scores on the test. Bee executive director Paige Kimble says, "We thought it was an easy test. We were wrong." The top scorers were Shruthika Padhy, Aisha Randhawa and Karthik Nemmani. Shruthika already came into the bee as one of the favorites, having finished in seventh place last year. The past 13 champions and 18 of the last 22 have been Indian-American. The Twitter account for the Spelling Bee competition showed the finalists and included details on how to watch the competition Thursday: Spelling Bee pronouncers For 15 years, the Rev. … [Read more...] about 41 finalists advance in 2018 National Spelling Bee competition

ByJ. D. Biersdorfer May 22, 2018 Q. Now that I know how to turn off the automatic spelling correction on my iPhone, how can I turn it off on my Mac? A.

Numerous studies have corroborated the disparity between male and female characters in films, TV shows and ads. But what if there was a way to analyze the gap before a movie hits the multiplex, when there is still time to address that persistent imbalance? Now, a few Hollywood players have developed technology that aims to do that: new screenplay software that can automatically tell whether a script is equitable for men and women. The idea came from Christina Hodson, a screenwriter who is involved with Time’s Up, the activist Hollywood organization addressing inequities in the industry.
