Horrible versus Normal

In haar poëzie schrijft prinses Dephine:

Pushed to my last resort
I took my father to court
It was all over the news
The family was not amused
Some people were horrible
It was terrible

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 
 
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
 

Slant

To present information in a particular way, especially showing one group of people, one side of an argument, etc. in such a positive or negative way that it is unfair:

The police claimed that reports in the media were slanted against/towards the defendant.
