One who has a stiff upper lip displays fortitude in the face of adversity, or exercises great self-restraint in the expression of emotion. The phrase is most commonly heard as part of the idiom "keep a stiff upper lip", and has traditionally been used to describe an attribute of British people, who are sometimes perceived by other cultures as being unemotional.[1] A sign of weakness is trembling of the upper lip, hence the saying keep a stiff upper lip. When a person's upper lip begins to tremble, it is one of the first signs that the person is scared or shaken by experiencing deep emotion.

    They're nothing new, but in recent years they have taken a more central role in our online radio.  I mean internet radio, by which I mean stuff like iTunes podcasts or things found on Pandora or Spotify. There's been a lot of disruption of the traditional music landscape over the last decade or two, and much of it has come because of the emergence of online radio in general, and podcasts in particular. In between the old giants that were previously holding on to the world (music labels) and their new giant rival (the internet), there's a whole new sort of upstart content creator that is changing things once again.

We will explore some common American idioms that are used today and their origins. You may not think that PDFs play a significant role in this conversation; here, if you want to rotate your PDF, then you need Adobe Acrobat Pro DC software!

    I'm taking a language class and we're learning about idioms. I've always thought of them as funny expressions that make no sense, like "raining cats and dogs." But they actually have very interesting stories behind them! Check out this blog resumes planet post to learn more about some common American idioms.
