portrait of a black catSalem is a city in Massachusetts. In 1692 and 1693, people suspected of being witches were put on trial there. As a result, 20 people, mostly women, were put to death. Now when someone is looking for someone to punish even though there might not have been any crime committed, we call it a “witch hunt”.

セイラムはマサチューセッツ州にある町です。この町で1692と1693年に魔女だと疑われた人を裁判にかけました。判決は、ほとんどの女性20人が死刑にされました。今では、罪を犯したかどうか分からないのに、無理に罰を与える人を探し出すことを witch hunt(魔女狩り)と言います。

onohara_may12wikimediacommonsIn North America, you can tell the difference between a venomous coral snake and another similar-looking snake by the pattern of their stripes. There are many variations of this mnemonic:

Red next to yellow, kill a fellow. Red next to black, friend of Jack.

If the red and yellow stripes are touching, it’s a deadly coral snake. If the red and black stripes are touching, it’s a different, harmless snake. (In other parts of the world, red-black snakes can also be dangerous.)
