    Coefficient of Friction, or COF: It is the number rating system used to indicate how slippery a flooring is. Tiles for example would be rated with a COR number. People who design public spaces have to take the COF into consideration when selecting the flooring. It was more interesting than I am making it sound. LOL

    Here's a word I have never seen, but guessed at:

    Gyre - a circular or spiral motion or form; especially : a giant circular oceanic surface current.

    "The author explained the Pacific's tides and gyres."
    A long surcote of pers upon he hade, / And by his syde he baar a rusty blade. - Chaucer

    Apparently that line after the title of a news article that's kind of like a subtitle is officially called a standfirst. That's what I learned today.
