Jargon Watch: Cowpooling, Tweetups, Dark Trading
Cowpooling v. Teaming up with neighbors to buy a whole cow from a local farm. It's then divvied up as T-bones and sirloins butchered to order. The practice is fashionable with urban locavores who want to eschew feedlot-raised, hormone-laced, corn-stuffed meat.
Tweetups n. pl. Meetups of microbloggers who track one another on Twitter. Most are spontaneously Twittered gatherings of actual friends, but mixers of strangers have become increasingly popular.
Unbibium n. Superheavy element 122, which chemists claim to have found in a sample of thorium. If confirmed, its name would become permanent and the periodic table would expand past 118. In nature, unbibium — potentially the heaviest element — would have a half-life of more than 100 million years.
Dark Trading v. Buying and selling stock outside of public view in pools set up by investment banks such as UBS and Goldman Sachs. The practice allows clients to exchange stock at high volume without moving the market significantly.
