Word of the Day
Breach (noun) -- a violation; an infraction; the breaking of a legal promise; a rift in a legal obligation; a gap in a structure (from Old English "brecan" meaning "to break")

Word in a Sentence: In the Choices fantasy trilogy, Odda Taiman set up a spell that protects the ships sailing into Arcana's harbors so long as his family is alive to keep the spell active, thus there is no breach in the geasa.

Your turn! This word is applicable today because Sandy can get out of her lease because the landlord is in breach of contract for a variety of not-so-good reasons. This is great because not only has the place started leaking each time it rains (thus she's convinced the mold is not just on all the surfaces she scrapes every week, but also in the walls), the air conditioner crapped out this weekend. Let us check the weather channel...oh, yay, 95 today. Woo-hoo! What fabulous sentence can you come up with to take her mind off the heat and humidity?

A little word to the wise here. If you default on payment for a major debt and things go into foreclosure, did you know that you can end up having to pay INCOME TAX on the money you didn't repay and on which your loan had gone into foreclosure? And of course, no one EVER wants to end up with a debt to the IRS cause if you breach that payment plan, you're really in deep doo-doo, aren't you? ARRGH.

Breach is a common word for me. I work in the area of privacy advocacy, where breaches of the Privacy Act are common, by government and companies.
