If a toughened glass window breaks it covers you in tiny splinters of glass, so don’t brush your clothes with your bare hands. Close your eyes if you have to pull clothes over your head because the material is full of splinters that might harm them. You might even have to throw clothes away, especially knitted garments, because the glass splinters won’t wash out. As soon as you can, brush or comb your hair, no matter how little you have, with your eyes closed and head tilted forwards, then wash it thoroughly.
There isn't much difference in meaning between the two examples but whereas in English we use intonation to emphasize something, in Japanese you use sentence order to achieve this with the more important or emphasized information normally coming towards the end of the sentence.
Carry a cloth and a combined squeegee and scraper so you can clean glass and lights if you need to. In summer, a ‘bug sponge’, which has a mildly abrasive surface (not a pot scourer), can be kept damp in a Ziploc bag for removing splattered insects the screen washers can’t shift. Debugging also gives you something to do when you stop for a break.
Luckily, verb irregularities often sound so strange that they are easy to remember: я хоч́у (I want) sounds rather like a sneeze and the sound of я любл́ю (I like) might remind you of the character in Andy Pandy, Looby Lou.
You will often see the 440 Hz reference printed on electronic tuners, pitch pipes, tuning forks and the like. It's such a ubiquitous international standard that you don't need to check that tuning aids conform to it – you can safely assume that they do.
It's a good idea – for all sorts of reasons – to read to your child from an early age. But one particular benefit it will bring is that it will make introducing a book on toilet training seem like a natural thing to do.
The surge in the popularity of caravanning in the UK means that it’s even more of a good idea to book your pitch at your chosen site (or sites) as far in advance as possible. Some long-standing caravanners bemoan the fact that it’s becoming increasingly hard to turn up on spec at a site and find a pitch, especially at peak times. School holidays and Bank Holidays – Easter in particular – are when the pressure is most on. If you haven’t booked in advance, I still recommend phoning the site on the day itself. Not only may this save you a wasted journey, but the site warden may be able to suggest an alternative.
Expressions with wenn: Da gibt's kein Wenn und Aber, du wirst das tun - No excuses (No ifs and buts), just do it! Wenn das nur gut geht! - I don't think that'll work out. Wenn es nur wahr wäre! - If only it were true! Wenn schon – denn schon! - In for a penny, in for a pound!
Almost every object in the Windows system has Properties, which define what it looks like and how it works. These can be seen, and often changed, through the Properties panel. This is normally reached through the context menu.
Filters are essential for landscape photography, allowing you to balance contrast, improve colour saturation and clarity and enhance the light. The two main types you need are a polarizer and neutral density (ND) grads. For more information on filters see Chapterﾠ4, Filters .
