Topic: Expenses manager
Posted: Monday, November 4, 2019 1:51:42 AM
Imagine you've arranged to a restaurant with your friends and you're going Dutch. But one person is in charge of the overall expenses; he pays the restaurant and later on people pay their shares to that person, or beforehand.

Is any phrase for such a person English? Expenses manager?

Hi,

Would you please check this process essay of mine?

It's not homework, only personal practice.

I've tried to write a process essay based on the following YouTube video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNZb7CXUjs0



The diagram illustrates the mechanism behind lithography to print newspaper. Overall, there are a total of six stages to this process, starting with sending individual sheets of paper to the press units and ending in sending the dried papers to the delivery section. The main process of printing is done by the four printing units, each carrying the responsibility of printing one of the major four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.

The first unit is in charge of separating single sheets of paper with the help of blowing air. Meanwhile, a combination of cylinders and rollers work together in each of the four printing units to press the specific image color onto the sheet.

Each printing unit shares a similar mechanism. The plate cylinder, on which an image is etched, is dampened by a set of water rollers, covering only the non-image parts. Then the ink rollers stick paint to the image area, after which the cylinder passes through a second cylinder (blanket). Not only is the damp on the non-image area picked up in this stage, the image part is also transferred to the blanket cylinder. Now a third cylinder co-operators with the blanket in order for the image to be offset on the paper, which is pushed between them with the help of sheet transfer drums.

This same process is repeated for each of the four printing units one by one before the final paper is dried with hot and cold air. The final output is then sent onto the delivery pile in the sixth unit.

As the press plate rotates, its first point of contact is the dampening unit. This has a mixture of water and other chemicals. This dampens the non-image area of the press plate. Starting from the ink fountain, the ink will pass through multiple rollers called a roller train, which then sticks to the image-area of the press plate. It is then passed to the blanket cylinder, which squeezes the water, and the inked image-area is picked up. It is then passed to the final cylinder called the impression cylinder. The paper runs between the impression cylinder and blanket cylinder pressing the image onto the paper.


Why has the writer used "will" in the above? Why not the simple present "passes"?

I'll certainly be elated.

But hedy, isn't it 'IN the saddle'?

That's really great hedy that you're passionate about your job. Not many people are blessed with this privilege. Most of my friends do their jobs solely for the money and they look forward to retirement.

I wish you and your family a long and happy life. Happy birthday, many happy returns.

Warm regards, Ata!

Other reasons for the pollution is that some boats and even countries release/discharge/dispose/dump their waste directly into the ocean.

Are all the verbs correct in the above? Could you think of any other alternative?

Combustion, mining, factories, power plants, farming, fires and automobiles all pose threats as potential air pollutants.

Are factories pollutants? Shouldn't it be 'polluters'?

This is a global issue as the compounds affecting the ozone come from other parts of the world to where the problem lies.

Can 'to' be dropped in the above?
