'Gaslighting' chosen as Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year 2022

As 2022 comes to a close, many brands & organisations begin to unveil what defined their 2022 and Merriam-Webster dictionary is no exception, choosing ‘gaslighting‘ as their word of the year.

The term ‘gaslighting’ reportedly dates back to the 20th century and means “psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that causes the victim to question the validity of their own thoughts, perception of reality, or memories.”

While the decision sadly shines a light on the state of the world in 2022, the act of gaslighting seems to have become more common than ever before, with many within communities of LGBTQ+, women, people of colour and more using the word to describe acts of oppression.

Searches for the word blew up in 2022, with Merriam Webster themselves reporting an increase of 1,740% in searches.

South Korea beat Portugal to make it to Round of 16

 - News - Dec 2 SHARE ON:


South Korea have managed to qualify to the knockout stages after narrowly beating Portugal with a last minute goal.

This means that both Uruguay and Ghana have been knocked out in what will be described as a disappointing tournament for both teams.

The game started with Portugal dominating the Asian scoring an opener as early as the 5th minute from attacking midfielder Ricardo Horta.

However South Korea managed to equalize in the 27th minute after Ronaldo from a Korean corner  mistaking gave the ball to Kim Young-gwon  who smashed it past Diogo Costa.

In the dying minutes of the game Korean striker Hwang Hee-chan shocked the entire footballing world giving South Korea the lead against Portugal and a place in the knockout places when nobody expected it.

South Korea will now most probably face Brazil in what will be a tough task to complete whilst Portugal will play one of Serbia, Cameroon or Switzerland.



Airplane mode could very soon be a thing of the past

Passengers travelling in the EU region will soon be able to make calls while flying.

Airlines can provide 5G technology and slower mobile data. This means passengers will also be able to stream music and videos.

The specifics of how this will be implemented are still unclear.

This could mean the end of airplane mode as we know it!
