Look at this map of Paris
printed in the Dec. 24 issue of the New York Times.
The Champs-ElysÃ©es is shown in the wrong place (what is labeled as
â€œChamps-ElysÃ©esâ€ is actually Avenue de Friedland/Boulevard Haussmann).

Here is a suggestion. If you send a homework assignment or a resume as
an attachment, please consider that the person receiving it (an
instructor or potential employer) is likely to get such submissions
from other people as well. If you name your submission â€œHW1.tar.gzâ€ or
â€œresume.pdfâ€, chances are that your recipient will have other files
with the same name. It is much better to name your file with some
identifying information about yourself, e.g., your name or user id, e.g., â€œHW1-CS499-johnson.tar.gzâ€ or â€œAlice.Smith.resume.pdfâ€.

Sophia and Bulgariaâ€™s pronunciation in Bulgarian to â€œbulgariaâ€?
The ACL wiki is now reality. A large portion of the existing ACL Universe will be folded into the Wiki and the â€œUniverseâ€ will likely disappear
