Boss’ private office (What a modern day office should look like)

In the designers’ community there is a clear dividing line between “Westerners” and “Russian traditionalists”. Minimal furnishings and high-tech office equipment are typical of the boss’ private offices in the West. The majority of Russian company directors firmly believe that their private office should convey a sense of awesomeness. The furnishings of the boss’ private office include a dark-wood table, with inlaid designs and other high-end furniture. The whole set-up of the boss’ private office gives you to understand that he is a man of considerable stature. 16 Декабря 2013  Тип работы: контрольная работа  Скачать

The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill near Gloucester in the Cotswolds region of England It is traditionally by and for the people of Brockworth – the local village, but now people from all over the world take part. The event takes its name from the hill on which it occurs. The 2010 event has been cancelled due to safety concerns over the number of people visiting the event but it is hoped that it will be held on the late May Bank Holiday in 2011. Due to the steepness and uneven surface of the hill there are usually a number of injuries, ranging from sprained ankles to broken bones and concussion. Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling has been summarized as “twenty young men chase a cheese off a cliff and tumble 200 yards to the bottom, where they are scraped up by paramedics and packed off to hospital”. 12 Июня 2015  Тип работы: лекция  Скачать

British English

British English (or BrEn, BrE, BE, en-UK or en-GB) is the broad term used to distinguish the forms of the English language used in the United Kingdom from forms used elsewhere. The Oxford English Dictionary applies the term to English "as spoken or written in the British Isles; especially the forms of English usual in Great Britain", reserving "Hiberno-English" for the "English language as spoken and written in Ireland". Nevertheless, Hiberno-English forms part of the broad British English continuum. Others, such as the Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary, define it as the "English language as it spoken and written in England." There are slight regional variations in formal written English in the United Kingdom. 20 Октября 2013  Тип работы: реферат  Скачать

British English versus American English

A long time ago, I flew with my husband and two babies from Texas to London, in Great Britain. We flew at night so that our two babies would sleep and we could rest. But as it turned out, the babies cried the entire 11 hours, so we walked the Atlantic Ocean, my husband marching up and down one aisle, carrying the 17-month-old, while I staggered up and down the other aisle with the 6-month-old sprout. Both infants had colds, so I had asked the pediatrician for medication that would help them breathe better. He had prescribed a cherry-flavored, liquid medicine that I hope none of my gentle readers will make the mistake of giving to their innocents. 28 Октября 2013  Тип работы: реферат  Скачать
