Assignment 1

Find alle verberne (udsagnsordene) i præteritum (datid) i nedenstående tekst, og omskriv dem til præsens (nutid). Skriv hele teksten som dit svar, og markér verberne tydeligt som i eksemplet.

Eksempel: Connie looked down at the scalpel in her hand…

Connie looks down at the scalpel in her hand…

Connie looked down at the scalpel in her hand. Quicksilver-thin blade, ivory handle. To the untrained eye, it looked like a stiletto. In other houses, it would be mistaken for a paring knife for vegetables or fruit.
    Not flesh.
    Connie cradled the dead jackdaw in her hands, feeling the memory of warmth and life in its dead muscle and sinew and vein, in the heavy droop of its neck. Corvus monedula1. Black glossy birds, with ash-grey necks and crowns.
    Pale eyes. Almost white.
    Her tools were ready. An earthenware bowl with a mixture of water and arsenical soap. Several strips of cloth, and a pail on the floor at her feet. Newspaper. Pliers and scalpel and file.
    Gently Connie laid the bird down on the paper. With her fingers, she parted the sooty feathers and lined up the blade at the top of the breast bone. Then, with the anticipation she always felt at the moment of incision, she manoeuvred the tip into place, looking for the best point of entry.
    The jackdaw lay still, accepting of its fate. She breathed in and slowly exhaled. A ritual of sorts. […]
    The perfumes of the trade were pungent – alcohol, the musty odour of flax tow, linseed oil, the paints for the claws and feet, beaks and mounts – too strong for a child’s sensibilities. Over the years, Connie had become accustomed to them and now she barely noticed. If anything, she believed that acknowledging the scent of things was an integral part of the process.
    She glanced up at the high windows that ran the length of the workshop, tilted open today to let in the fresh air. The sky was a welcome shock of blue after the weeks of rain. She wondered if she might persuade her father to come down for lunch. Perhaps a cup of beef tea?

193319_billede_assignment_2 World Health Organization Coping with stress during the 2019-nCoV outbreak It is normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during a crisis. Talking to people you trust can help. Contact your friends and family. If you must stay at home, maintain a healthy lifestyle - including proper diet, sleep, exercise and social contacts with loved ones at home and by email and phone with other family and friends. Don’t use smoking, alcohol or other drugs to deal with your emotions. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to a health worker or counsellor. Have a plan, where to go to and how to seek help for physical and mental health needs if required. Get the facts. Gather information that will help you accurately determine your risk so that you can take reasonable precautions. Find a credible source you can trust such as WHO website or, a local or state public health agency. Limit worry and agitation by lessening the time you and your family spend watching or listening to media coverage that you perceive as upsetting. Draw on skills you have used in the past that have helped you to manage previous life’s adversities and use those skills to help you manage your emotions during the challenging time of this outbreak.

193319_billede_assignment_4 Walter Sears SUCKS!!! They just lost another life-long customer, thanks to their crappy "customer service" (or lack thereof!). Do not buy from Sears- they promise delivery dates, but then fail to deliver, reschedule, and fail- again, then make vague excuses but cannot provide a guaranteed delivery date, all the while gaining interest on your money, and giving a hard time when you demand a refund! I am telling all of my friends- do not trust Sears with your business. This is probably WHY THEY ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS! You have been warned. Like Reply 4w 3

  b)  Write a reply from Sears to the customer (50-75 words) in formal and grammatically correct English.
