Word of the Day

Hola mis personas!!!!

Occasionally, I'll post a
Word-of-the-Day! This will not only help me to refine my vocabulary but you as well. Try to use the word as often as possible. Feel free to post your word-of-the-day or a fact-of-the-day.

Today's Word-of-the-day is
PROMULGATE (prom-ul-gate); It is a verb

1) to make (as a doctrine) known by open declaration: PROCLAIM
2a) to make known or public the terms of (a proposed law)
2b) to put (a law) into action or force

I think my next word of the day will be PRONATION!

Looking forward to seeing what words or facts people post.

Quickie Post

Hey Everybody,

I just wanted to write a quick post before I forget my main question. I will come back to this post to elaborate and fix it up.

I am reading a textbook for one of my courses and it says, "Very little is known about why racial and ethnic groups differ in their health-related behavior." Once I read this I immediately thought of the word PRIVILEGE.

Do we really no know why ethnic groups of people tend to have poorer health? Or do we not want to rehash events that have occurred in the past and are still issues today?

Ok, I'll be back to write more. LOL
