EQ4U UPDATE – MAY 2022
Sobering reflections on the global effect of the chillingly shocking and infinite stupidity demonstrated by Putin’s leadership of Russia’s war in Ukraine are encompassed in this month’s quotes:
‘Two things are infinite: the universe and man’s stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.’
‘Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear and greed.’
Both quotes are listed in EQ4U ‘Philosophy’ section.
That vs. Who
This month’s grammar notes from Kathy’s book, pages 44 & 45, referencing that who is correct when referring to people. Examples as follows where that should be replaced by who.
- “I’m sorry there’s at least one of my colleagues
thatwho can’t take a joke.”
- “You have a friend
that’swho’s got your back.”
Please continue to let me know if you have any grammar or communication notes that you would like me to include or if you have any comments.
*Grammar notes are dedicated to the memory of ‘Ruthless Editor’ Kathy Watson. Kathy’s book: ‘Grammar for people who hate rules’ is a helpful reference source. Link to book: https://amzn.to/2AaV5bE
