From the Publisher

This dictionary assembles more than 1450 English proverbs and their Romanian equivalents. Equivalent proverbs are those which express the same concept, be it literally, such as "All that glitters is not gold" = "Nu tot ce sclipeşte e aur", or with completely different words, such as "Every cloud has a silver lining" = "Nici un rău fără bine." The Dictionary is a very useful reference tool for scholars of the two languages, for researchers working in various associated fields such as linguistics, literature, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, and for workers in newer areas such as advertising and contemporary media. The Dictionary is also of interest to diplomats and politicians who try to improve their communication by sharing ideas formulated in some common meaningful expressions; it will assist interpreters and translators, and teachers and students for whom it is important to understand not only what the target culture expresses in the same way as their own, but also what is formulated in a different way. The Dictionary is also of benefit to non-professionals who, for the sheer enjoyment of it, wish to savour the wisdom, wit, poetry and the colourful language of proverbs.

The Advantages of a Closed Social Network for Your Business

Q: What's the advantage of a closed social network? A: All businesses depend on information flow. When employees have the information they need, they make better decisions, save time, feel connected and are more productive. A closed social network--think Facebook or Twitter, but for use by your employees only--encourages a more open work environment by allowing information to move freely within the business. With the transparency such networks provide, executives enjoy a direct line of sight into operations, managers can better direct their team's efforts and employees can collaborate with col
