This might be better as:

Leading Garage Band in the Eighties, with the groundbreaking "Faces" album, The Sick Rose evolved through the decades into adulthood as a true r'n'r band beyond any typical stereotypes.

This obeys the sub-clause rule


I have one more question: does "sum total" sound natural? I'm not so sure..

Hi PlanetofGiants,
Thanks a lot for answering me, YOU were really helpful. I'm going to correct the text on Bandcamp right now.

Have a nice day,

Sarah

My only comment is: do you really mean 2017?


Of course not, it's a typo :)

Any advice about the grammar?

Hi,
These few lines are a short bio on Bandcamp's site, would you please help me with the grammar?

Leading Garage Band in the Eighties with the groundbreaking "Faces" album, The Sick Rose evolved through the decades into adulthood as a true r'n'r band, beyond any typical stereotypes. "Someplace Better", the band's 7th album, represents the sum total of all their influences and experiences. It will be released on March 15th, 2017.


Thank you very much,

Sarah

Topic: Ink spillage or deposition?
Posted: Friday, February 2, 2018 7:45:42 AM
Hi,
I have a Silicon wafer with some chips marked by an ink drop (the failed ones); that's the normal procedure whenever the wafers are processed at the final line test. Is it more correct to say the ink has been spilled or dispensed (distributed)?

Thanks

Sarah

I don't get you.Think
What is changing in the solution? What is the difference between 'fresh' and 'before draining?' Does it degrade over time? Just with time, or with contamination from other wafers?

What is your 'control'?




Hi Thar,
I'll try to be clearer (it's quite difficult for me as well to explain it in English): "fresh" solution: the chemical bath has just been prepared, so lot #1 is the first lot to be plunged in. "before draining": the chemical bath has been used a few/several times and has degraded over time, so I'm immersing lot #5 to see whether the bath is still effective before preparing it anew. "Control group": this is a definition for a lot that has been processed with a standard process. Actually, it is not me processing the lots, I'm just the failure analysis tech who's carrying out the analysis on the lots; I tried to get the information from the engineers, but it seems they have no clue about the right translation. Since I have to write an analysis report, I need to define the process steps, focusing on the chemical solution.

Thanks

Sarah

Good morning,
I'm processing three groups of Silicon wafers in a chemical solution (bath) at different times. One lot was immersed in the fresh solution, the second one was plunged before draining the solution, the third one was the control group. I need to name the single process steps in my analysis report. Could you please help me out?

Thanks a lot,

Sarah

Hi guys,
just one thing:

The Lemonheads were an alternative rock band, not a metal band.

Hello

I'm writing a short play locally and some parts of it needed to be in Italian.

After extracting the parts that needs to be translated, it's only about 370 words - let me know if someone has some time and would like to help.

Hi Fly,
I can have a try and take a look at it during the weekend.

Ciao

Hi guys, I would like to ask you if the expressions in bold are correct in the following sentences: In contrast, the virtual coincidence between the Tc of MgB2+16 wt% SiO2 and MgB2+2 wt% C+16 wt% SiO2 and that of undoped MgB2 on the one hand confirms the virtual absence of carbon incorporated into the MgB2 lattice for/(with regard to) the MgB2+2 wt% C+16 wt% SiO2 sample, as suggested by the XRD data. On the other hand/Furthermore, it suggests that silica behaves differently from carbon, in that it does not substitute B in the boron honeycomb layers, hence it does not provide impurity scattering of charge carriers, which (is it clear that which is referred to impurity scattering?) leads to a decrease of Tc.


Hi Carmen,
I've just finished my weekly English lesson with the same question: is "one the one hand" right? Shouldn't we say "on one hand" instead? The teacher told me that the first one, with "the" is more natural, because "one hand" is countable, so it needs an article before.

As far as your last question, I would rather say "hence it does not provide impurity scattering of charge carriers leading to a decrease of Tc".

Bye

Sarah
