    Default The Beatles Penguins

    The Beatles penguins are part of a public art exhibition called "Go penguins" which will feature 235 fibreglass penguins decorated by artists, celebrities and............ They will go on display around the city as a finale to Liverpool's year of the environment.

    I wonder whether I've got all the meaning of these 4 words correctly.

    Go penguins = go rightaway penguins ,don't stop
    feature = show/express
    finale = conclusion/ the last show
    environment = this year Liverpool realize in having a react towards environment's maintaining
    Clarify me please.

    Go penguins = go rightaway penguins ,don't stop Go >> take on the concept of "penguin"
    feature = show/express The penguins are the objects that are most evident.
    finale = conclusion/ the last show
    environment = this year Liverpool realize in having a react towards environment's maintaining "Liverpool's Year of the Environment" >> The end of the year in which Liverpool has been promoting awareness of the environment to its population.
    Clarify me please. Please clarify for me

    I understood the word "zero" meant "non" but I wonder what this reader would like to criticize about this idea of kissing this big Penguin. What did the reader have in mind "pro" or "con" towards this picture ?
    Please clarify it to me.

    'Patient zero' is a concept taken from (popular?) epidemiology. For reasons of numerical convenience, a computer count starts not a 1 but at 0. 'Patient zero' is the original carrier of a disease.

    'Who' is a typo for "WHO" [the World Health Organization'].
