When Philipp Plein donned his models, according to Yahoo! Style, he put them on himself.
I imagine he looked something like this model, who has donned another model:
Someone needs to explain to the writer than don means “to put on.”
What month would you select in the Dylann Roof trial? According to yahoo.com, a July selection begins in the trial.
But what is the selection for? Personally, I’d prefer to see a jury selection start now for Mr. Roof’s trial.
If you’re a writer and your beat is fashion, shouldn’t you know how to spell the name of luxury brand Bottega Veneta? Not if you work for Yahoo! Style:
If you think that’s a typo, you would be wrong. In the article, after misspelling model Raquel Zimmermann’s name, she mangles Bottega Veneta:
So, how much credibility does the writer — and Yahoo! Style — have?
I must speak out about the writing by Yahoo! Answers staff: It sucks.
Judging by the incorrect word usage, I’d guess that the writer is not a native English speaker. Why do I think that? The CEO of Mylan testified before Congress. Neither the CEO nor Mylan can be accused of “speaking out,” which means to talk freely and fearlessly. Quite the contrary. The expression “in the recent years” isn’t familiar to me, but “in recent years” is. And people aren’t affected about an issue, but affected by one.
This writer just isn’t familiar enough with English to be let loose on the public without the support of a competent editor.
Maybe this Yahoo! Finance writer shouldn’t be writing anything that involves numbers. She’s just no good at it. She claims that a company was acquired for $900 million:
That much seems pretty clear. Then she tells me that the acquired company actually had other offers — including one for $700 billion:
I’m no mathematical genius, but isn’t $700 billion more — a lot more — than $900 million, which the writer claims was the highest bid. I’m so confused. But not as confused as this writer.
While I’m pondering what “capitol letters” are (could they be missives to representatives on Capitol Hill?), you can ponder the mystery that is a mismatched subject and verb on Yahoo! Finance:
The word capitol means only one thing: A building or buildings where legislatures meet. If you mean something else (including uppercase letters), use capital. Maybe someone at Yahoo! can explain why using incorrect words does not matter to the Internet giant.
