Google's founders picked the name Alphabet because language is “one of humanity’s most important innovations.” And also because buying Google’s stock is an “alpha-bet”, or a bet that Google will outperform the market http://econ.st/1Mmg5dh

By the mid-1990s Mr. Gandolfini had made gangster roles a specialty, playing burly but strangely charming tough guys in films like “True Romance” (1993) and “The Juror” (1996). He had an impressive list of character-acting credits, but was largely unknown when Mr. Chase cast him in “The Sopranos” in 1999.
到上世紀90年代中期,甘多爾菲尼把飾演 黑幫角色變成了自己的專長,在《真實羅曼史》(True Romance, 1993)和《危險機密》(The Juror, 1996)等影片中扮演了高大粗魯但擁有奇特魅力的硬漢角色。他演過的性格角色之多讓人驚嘆,但在蔡斯於1999年讓他出演《黑道家族》之前,他在很大程 度上處於默默無聞的狀態。

hustings

発音
hʌ'stiŋz
[名]((単数・複数扱い))((主に英))
1 (1872年以前の)政見発表台.
2 ((the 〜))選挙演説[運動];選挙手続き, 投票

hustings (HUS-tingz)

noun
1. Political campaign trail.
2. A place where campaign speeches are made.
3. A local court formerly held in some localities in Britain and still occasionally held in London.
4. A local court in some parts of Virginia.

Etymology
From Middle English, from Old English husting, from Old Norse husthing, from hus (house) + thing (assembly)

Hustings is the British equivalent of the US word stump. Originally, campaigning politicians conveniently used the stump of a large tree to stand on and to speak from. Today, it's metaphorically used in expressions such as stump speech (campaign speech) or on the stump (on the campaign trail). Until 1872 Hustings was the raised platform from which candidates were nominated for the British Parliament, and where they addressed electors.

Usage
"By this time next Monday, after all the hurly-burly of the hustings is done, Malaysians would have cast their ballots in the country's 11th general election and the results will be known." — Warren Fernandez; Election Numbers to Watch; The Straits Times (Singapore); Mar 15, 2004.

"A lot can be learned about candidates from their speeches on the hustings: not what they say, but how they say it." — The Way He Talks; Economist (London, UK); Mar 4 2004.
