mnemonic food

I encountered both “homogeneous” and “homogenous” in my studying tonight, so I thought I would investigate the difference between the two. Homogeneous items are all of the same kind; homogenous items correspond in structure because of a common origin. So….a bag of M&M’s would be homogenous, but a bag of all pink M&M’s would be homogeneous.

Then I ran into “concomitant,” which is, incidentally, a really great word to say. This one means almost the same thing as “concurrent,” but with a decreased emphasis than its accompanying item/event. So for dinner this evening, we’re going to have soup and a concomitant sandwich.

  1. Good points raised here. I am grateful to you for that, however you deserve more thanks than that. I suffer from color blindness (deuteranopia in my case). I mainly use Opera browser (no idea if that changes anything), and a considerabland a number of web sites are challenging to comprehend thanks to a careless range of colours used. However, here, as the range of colors is good, the design is extremely tidy and pleasant to comprehend. I don’t know whether it was a premeditated and conscious undertaking, or just the ‘luck of the draw’, but I still thank you.

  2. First of all I’d like to say, this is a really informative post! I’ve got a small question bothering me, I really love the design of your website and tried to download the same design on my WP website. Anyhow, there is some kind of weird coding error in the sidebar. Do you have any hints, which version are you using? Please PM me on Twitter @FitnessHealthGuide or via e-mail.
