Grammar

It has been suggested that cellular phones will be the tobacco of the 21st century. It appears that their use is almost as addictive as cigarettes, with psychologists’ reports claiming that there is evidence that users display withdrawal symptoms if deprived of their cell phones for more than 24 hours. There is certainly no doubt that cell phone use in public is just as annoying as smoking. Phone-free zones are already being set up in movie theaters and restaurants, and it would seem that trains will soon be following suit, with “cell phone” and “non-cell phone” cars available on all commuter services. On a more serious note, it is now widely believed that excessive cell phone use may cause cancer, and it has been proposed that all cell phones should carry a government health warning similar to the one displayed on cigarette packs.

Sonia must have complained about problems at work; probably that she was being overworked and that she was thinking about quitting her job.

New American Inside Out

2

Hi Sonia,

How are you? You sounded really low in your last letter. Are things getting any better? Were you serious about quitting or were you just going through a bad patch? Look, if the job’s really that bad, I think you should give it up. Nothing’s worth getting that stressed out about. But if you’re really determined to stick it out – and I know you, you can be really stubborn sometimes – you should really try taking care of yourself a little better. I’m sure you can find ways to delegate some of your work or to cut down your workload. They really are asking too much of you.

I think the best thing you could do

would be to sit down with your boss and talk about the situation. Maybe she doesn’t realize the pressure you’re under. Or maybe you could try asking for a vacation before you work yourself into the ground. You can’t keep working the way you have been; you’ll get sick.

OK, sorry, I sound like your mother! But seriously, if there’s anything I can do, please let me know. Whatever you decide to do, I’m sure you’ll make the right decision and it’ll all work out fine in the long run. In the meantime, call me. I’d love to hear from you and maybe we can make some plans to meet up. Take care and don’t let it get you down.

A huge hug,

Steve

light business people who and home for a small can carry have to carry don’t want Speech recognition navigate your computer write documents you could keyboard and mouse

Netbooks are inexpensive and light They appeal to a wide audience. They appeal to business people who travel frequently. They appeal to kids and home users. They are looking for a small laptop. They want to be able to carry it from room to room. They also appeal to students. They have to carry heavy books around with them all day. They don’t want the extra weight of a full-size laptop.

Speech recognition has reached an important point in its development. With speech recognition you can navigate your computer without a keyboard and mouse. You can also write documents without using the keyboard and mouse. It’s much faster with speech recognition .

a)

The perfect computer would be one that is so small and light it can fit comfortably in your pocket, but at the same time can open out to give you a full-size screen. I think speech recognition could do so many good things, such as help people with physical disabilities to access all the functions on their computer quickly and easily. I would love to have a car that can park itself, lining itself up in the parking lot, and doing all that awkward maneuvering for me!

He hates the fact that he has to work the night shift and so does his wife, who has to spend the evenings alone. Such was the confusion over the new voting system that many people voted for the wrong candidate. So bad is his reputation for not paying his debts that no one will lend him any money.
