comment Term for competitor that is not the favourite
Actually, I think dark horse simply means it is less known to the bettors. Usually that also implies it has long odds but it's not always the case - only that it is an unknown entity.

comment Should we avoid a “double passive”?
Agree; in the examples shown, the active voice would require specifying the agent(s), which is sometimes unwanted. "<Someone> expects that <someone> will hold an emergency meeting soon", or "<Someone> has proposed that <someone> build a new highway across the swamp" - very awkward.

comment “Soccer mom”: why soccer?
Sounds reasonable, but I'd love to see some evidence back these ideas up. Is soccer a much more popular sport for American kids for these reasons? Is it overrepresented for girls' sports? Are inter-school tournaments less frequent for the other sports?

comment “Soccer mom”: why soccer?
This doesn't answer the question of why soccer was chosen instead of another sport. Did Susan Casey have some reason to choose it over others?

comment What's a “brace” in the expression “brace yourself”?
None of the answers here mention this, but I've always thought that "bracing" also means to physically brace yourself, because on particularly bad news the recipient might collapse, so it makes sense to physically brace. This is similar to other expressions telling the recipient of bad news to sit down first.

comment What's the opposite of “bootstrap” (in business)?
Outsourcing might be too narrow; I like corner cutting but it's a loaded term.

Elaborate that it's not simply antonym of bootstrapping

comment What's the opposite of “bootstrap” (in business)?
This only covers one aspect of the "not-bootstrap" approach though. One could use loans instead of investment for startup capital. Another aspect of "not-bootstrapping" is using COTS instead of developing in-house products, which is orthogonal to financing.
