As Obama enters the second year of his presidency, he's dropped some expressions -- "war on terror", "Af-Pak", even "Middle East". His administration has invented a few too: "remotedly piloted aircraft" (drones) and "overseas contingency operations" (wars). Also, a special screening of Avatar in Ecuador for indigenous groups. What did these Shuar and Achuar speakers think of Avatar's invented language, Na'vi? Finally, a new online satirical movie is all the rage in China. It features a Chinese double-entendre phrase aimed at avoiding government censorship. The movie also includes a fantastic "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" rant.<img id="pri-insights" src="http://api.pri.org/insights/?story=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pri.org%2Fstories%2F... />
