You may find this difficult to believe, but 2013 is winding to a close. That’s right. There are just two awkward family functions, one parent-teacher conference, one fight over a space in the mall parking lot, six holiday parties, three vicious hangovers and a partridge in a pear tree remaining, and it’s over. It’s also time for another end-of-year tradition: the Oxford Dictionaries Online online list of new words. Much like the technology to which many of them refer, I don’t know how long some of these will be around. Nevertheless, the distinguished people at Oxford seem to feel they are worthy of an entry. As a service to our readers, I will use each word in a sentence…and also because my children bet me that I couldn't.

The Saint Louis Zoo has plenty to be excited about, including the $15-million polar bear habitat, which is set to open in 2015. Construction on the 40,000-square-foot McDonnell Polar Bear Point began last month. When completed, it will more than double the space of the zoo’s old polar bear habitat, and house an adult male and female bear, as well as a couple of cubs. Among the features of the new space is a seamless transition from sea to coastline to land, allowing the bears to swim, dive, rock-climb and dig in the sand. There also will be a 22-foot visitor viewing window and an Arctic cave room for viewing the bears as they swim in a 13-foot-deep pool. The habitat also includes a state-of-the-art life support system that recirculates and treats exhibit water, saving the zoo some 2.3 million gallons of water each year.
