How to use your cell phone
To make phone calls, turn on your cell phone and touch the "phone" icon. Find your contact in the "Contacts" list or click the dial to insert the cell phone number of the person you want to speak to. After that, click the green buttom and wait.
To send a text message, click on the "message" icon, which is usually a speech bubble. Then click on the "send message" buttom - you may find it as a speech bubble with a plus symbol. Afterwards, type the name of the person you want to send a message to, as it will appear automatically if it is saved in your contacts list. If it is not, insert the person's number. Then, write the message in the box below - the cell phone usually indicates where to type it. Finally, click on "send message."
But we're outside in the sun. My big brother Junior hunkered against the wall with his eyes shut. My little brother Keeks running around in circles. Maybe and most probably my little brother is imagining he's a flying feather dancer, like the ones we saw swinging high up from a pole on the Virgin's birthday. I want to be a flying feather dancer too, but when he circles past me he shouts, “I’m a B-Fifty-two bomber, you’re a German,” and shoots me with an invisible machine gun. I’d rather play flying feather dancers, but if I tell my brother this, he might not play with me at all.
“Girl. We can’t play with a girl.” Girl. It's my brother's favorite insult now instead of “sissy.” “You girl, they yell at each other. “You throw that ball like a girl.”
I've already made up my mind to be a German when Keeks swoops past again, this time yelling, “I'm Flash Gordon. You’re Ming the Merciless and the Mud People.” I don’t mind being Ming the Merciless, but I don't like being the Mud People. Something wants to come out of the corners of my eyes, but I don’t let it. Crying is what girls do.
I leave Keeks running around in circles — I'm the Lone Ranger, you're Tonto.” I leave Junior squatting on his ankles and go look for the awful grandmother.
Why do churches smell like the inside of an ear? Like incense and the dark and candles in blue glass? And why does holy water smell of tears? The awful grandmother makes me kneel and fold my hands. The ceiling high and everyone's prayers bumping up there like balloons.
If I stare at the eyes of the saints long enough, they move and wink at me, which makes me a sort of saint too. When I get tired of winking saints, I count the awful grandmother's mustache hairs while she prays for Uncle Old, sick from the worm, and Auntie Cuca, suffering from a life of troubles that left half her face crooked and the other half sad.
Record any details that relate to the topic of American identity.
There are several details in this passage that could be considered to form part of an American identity. For example, the fact that the brother's name is "junior" reflects an American tradition of naming first-born babies after their father. Another example is that of referencing German soldiers, as well as American airplanes fighting against them. This is a consequence of the fact that the United States has fought against Germany in both World Wars. Finally, the last details that focus on an American identity are the references to characters from American pop culture, such as Flash Gordon, the Lone Ranger and Tonto.
Paying attention to nonverbal communication can ________________. a.
help you be an effective listener
distract you while listening
lead to miscommunication
offend the speaker
The answer is option A (help you be an effective listener).
Non-verbal communication is the message transmitted by facial expressions, body language, eye contact, and smiling among others. Non-verbal communication plays a key role in the transmission of messages, even more than verbal communication.
For example, if we say something we do not believe in, our face will express something different. The interlocutor will perceive that something is going wrong.
Hence, paying attention to non-verbal communication help us be effective listeners.
What is 86880 divided by 82?
While the mistress of the home is gradually subsiding from the first stage to the second, take a look at the home. A furnished flat at $8 per week. It did not exactly beggar description, but it certainly had that word on the lookout for the mendicancy squad. Which word is used in the excerpt above to infer the mood of the setting?
Answer: C) mendicancy.
Explanation: In literature, mood is a literary element that evokes certain feelings or vibes in readers through words and descriptions. We can also say that the mood is the emotional setting of the piece or its atmosphere. In the given excerpt the setting is a furnished flat, and the word used to describe the mood of this setting is "mendicancy" because it reveals the condition of the flat (almost beggar description).
