“We use computers for everything from banking and investing to shopping and
communicating with others through email or chat programs. Although you may not
consider your communications "top secret," you probably do not want strangers

Grammar: Chapter 9 - Modals and Phrases of Request, permission, desire, and preference. Use CAN, COULD, WILL, and WOULD to make requests. CAN and WILL are less
formal than COULD and WOULD. We usually use CAN and WILL in informal
conversations with friends and family. We use COULD and WOULD to make
polite requests in formal situations when we speak to strangers or to people in
The distance that two people who are kissing keep their hips apart can tell you something about the relationship that exists between them. Lovers press their torsos hard against each other and move within each other’s close intimate zones. This differs from the kiss received from a stranger on New Year’s Eve or from your best friend’s spouse, both of whom keep their pelvic area at least 15 centimetres away from yours. One of the exceptions to the distance/ intimacy rule occurs where the spatial distance is based on the person’s social standing.

The Art of Public Speaking an apposite anecdote has saved many a speech from failure. "There is no finer opportunity for the display of tact than in the introduction of witty or humorous stories into a discourse. Wit is keen and like a rapier, piercing deeply, sometimes even to the heart. Humor is good−natured, and does not wound. Wit is founded upon the sudden discovery of an unsuspected relation existing between two ideas. Humor deals with things out of relation−−with the incongruous. It was wit in Douglass Jerrold to retort upon the scowl of a stranger whose shoulder he had...
The aim of this book, announced in the first edition, is to give a bird’seye
view of undergraduate mathematics and a glimpse of wider horizons.
The second edition aimed to broaden this view by including new chapters
on number theory and algebra, and to engage readers better by including
many more exercises. This third (and possibly last) edition aims to increase
breadth and depth, but also cohesion, by connecting topics that were previously
strangers to each other, such as projective geometry and finite groups,
and analysis and combinatorics....
Chapter 10.Communications and Presentations. Presentations can range from a short talk before a small group of acquaintances or colleagues to a lengthy speech to a group of strangers. No matter the audience or the setting, formal or informal, small or large, the best presentations leave the audience informed and interested.
"Computer, draw a robot!" said my young cousin to the first computer he had ever seen. (Since I
had instructed it not to listen to strangers, the computer wasn't receptive to this command.) If
you're like me, your first thought would be "how silly" or "how funny"—but this is a mistake. Our
educated and modeled brains have learned how to work with computers to a certain degree. People
are being educated to accommodate computers, to compensate for the lack of ability of computers
to understand humans.

One Sunday morning, about the year 1661, a group of Indians was gathered around a noble-looking man,
listening to a story he was reading. It was summer and the day was beautiful, and the little Indian children
who sat listening were so interested that not even the thought of their favorite haunts by brookside or meadow
could tempt them from the spot. The story was about the life of Christ and his mission to the world, and the
children had heard it many times, but to-day it seemed new to them because it was read in their own language,
which had never been printed before....
A lot should be written as two words. Although a lot is used informally to mean "a large number" or "many," avoid using a lot in formal writing. Example: "The crook had many (not a lot of) chances to rob the stranger."
Less than twenty years ago photolithography and medicine were total strangers to one
another. They had not yet met, and not even looking each other up in the classifieds. And
then, nucleic acid chips, microfluidics and microarrays entered the scene, and rapidly these
strangers became indispensable partners in biomedicine.
As recently as ten years ago the notion of applying nanotechnology to the fight against disease
was dominantly the province of the fiction writers.
I have always relied on the knidness of strangers. This book would be about parrots had I not had the good lucky to study with Master Larry Sang and to meet Master Yoseph Yu, Yoey Yap and Grandmaster Yap Cheng Hai.
