Skinnery in die washuis

deur Abdullah Isaacs

Tapsiela met haar groot bek kan baie raas

Sy maak skandaal in die ou wasplaas;

Sy sê Gasbieya is skeel,

Nou wil Gasbieya vir haar verbeel

En verder

Oe Tapsiela, Gafiela en Jamiela,

Pasop! Pasop!

Hier kom motjie Dingie met haar lang snuif lip;

Haar gevreet lyk so plat soos ‘n ou wasklip.

(xiii) Write your own moppie in which you poke fun at a famous person, politician, etc.


A The following item appeared in a local newspaper on 7 March 1995:

CAPE TOWN. Anneline Malebo, a member of the pop group Joy who was responsible for the hit song Paradise Road , is to be buried in Guguletu on Saturday.

It is not yet known at what time the funeral sevice will commence.

Explain the relationship between this news report and the tendency to refer to the song Paradise Road as the unofficial Aids anthem.


Come with me down Paradise Road

This way please, I’ll carry along

This you won’t believe

Come with me to Paradise Place

Just outside and open your eyes

This you won’t believe

There are better days before us

And the burning bridge behind us

By us spoken;

The sky is burning

There’s a woman waiting weeping

And a young man nearly beaten

All for love

Paradise is almost closing down.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
