How your town got its name .

Reasons for the establishment of the town .

Importance of your town today .

9. Write a brief biography of a local hero or well-known person.

  • You will need to include:

Personal details such as full name, date and place of birth, etc .

Reasons why he or she is well-known.

His or her connection to your town.

Anything else of interest about the person .

10. Collect statistics concerning tourists who visit your town, i.e. where they come from, why they came to this town, etc. (You can ask the local tourism body or at the municipality.)

[LO 3.1, 4.2]

Activity 3:

To work with sentences (using a range of punctuation)

To work with sentences (tenses)

[lo 6.2.6]

  • While studying tourism, it is no good ignoring language rules, so we do need to look more closely at how to use punctuation and how to use the past tense correctly.

1. Rewrite the following paragraphs filling in the capital letters and missing punctuation marks.

mr peter arendse a tourist from new york arrives in happyvale he is staying at happy farm guest house in main street on tuesday he visits the winery and the national history museum then he goes to cine 1 to see pearl harbour

he says i always enjoy touring but the san paintings on a cave wall in the happiness mountains are the most exciting thing i have ever seen

2. When you have completed this activity, write down FIVE punctuation rules that govern the changes you made.

3. When you have punctuated the paragraphs above correctly, rewrite the paragraphs in the past tense. Identify the verbs first before you start. That will make it easier!

Activity 4:

To write to communicate information

[lo 4.1]

’Have passport. Will travel’

  • When you travel abroad or to a neighbouring country, you have to have a passport. Perhaps you have never filled in a passport application form.
  • Your educator will give you an application form for a passport. Fill in the necessary details.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
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.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
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.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

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.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
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
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
