"Being" is the continuus form of the verb "to be" it refers to a Verbs of being (be, remain, stay) that predict being in a location or in a state. It does not mean anything when it goes alone, except when it is used as a substantive,Eg. "Human Being"

Topic: than is needed

I think it is a kind of passive sentence, and there is the first part of the comparative so I think the sentence is correct:

"You shouldn't jot down more notes than is needed."

Hope this help

Topic: Is this a proper use of 'concern'?
Posted: Saturday, April 15, 2017 6:08:02 AM

i think it is used wrongly in this context because "concern" means preocupation so I think that there are lots of verbs to express the preocupation you have about the delivery.

For instance: I am writing to ask you if/whether the item has arrived on time, if it does; are you satisfied with our products?

Topic: that put things in perspective.

I think that "to put things in perspective" in this context, deals with the moment you see things from another point of view, it has to do with the feeling of being detached from ordinary things and change your worries for some issues which you had'nt realized before.
