"The use of smartphones cannot be overlooked in the current era."
How to Transfer Data from Sony Xperia to Samsung Galaxy S9, S8, etc
Please explain the use of modal "can" in "cannot be overlooked"
Can we replace "can't be overlooked" with "shouldn't be overlooked"?
I get confused by "shouldn't be vs can't be"

When I do medicine reconciliation, often I have to ring the GP and other clinic and hospitals in order to get some information for an accurate drug history on admission.
What are the best alternatives to the phrase I commonly use:
When I ring the GP, I start off:
I was wondering if you could...?
I am looking for good phrases to ask or get some information from the patient's gp and other clinics or hospitals over the phone?

Please explain the use of an indefinite article before "ready-to-drunk..."?
Does "a" modify the noun supplement?

Thank you all!

Thanks. Would someone please elaborate on the past progressive vs past simple in the context? I thought, "last night" a signal word suggests the use of simple past.

The following is from today's Metro uk
https://ibb.co/fo301K
Why have they used "being held" and not was held as "last night" warrants the use of simple past -in the paragraph starting with "a 32 year-old man was last night being held on suspicion murder, while two other men-aged 28 and 60- were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, according to Staffordshire Police."?
