LP – Numero

Numero o ranggo sa eskuwelahan

Kasiyahan na nating mga magulang ang makitang nagsisikap ang ating mga anak sa kanilang pag-aaral. Napapawi ang anumang hirap na ating nararamdaman sa araw-araw na pamumuhay. Higit pa ang kaligayahang dulot kung malalaman pa natin na kabilang sa mga namumukod-tanging mag-aaral ang ating anak. Larawan ito noong nakaraang school year. Napanatili ng anak ko ang pwesto niya sa third-place noong 2nd at 3rd Grading Period, sayang nga lang at kinulang daw ng .3 ang kanyang grado para masabitan siya ng medal bilang 3rd honor noong Recognition Day. Ang sabi ko naman hindi na bale, may ibang pagkakataon pa naman, ang mahalaga napatunayan niya sa kanyang sarili ang kaya pa niyang gawin.

Easy access to ebooks

The most convenient way to send a project or a report to your boss or your professor is by sending the file in PDF or Portable Document Format because it’s like your work is scanned and the person whom you send it to can view it the way you originally saved it on the Internet. And when you are really in a hurry to look for reference materials and you have no time to scan and read all the books that you borrowed from the public library, you can try free pdf download for electronic books to complete your research on time. This works for me when I searched for additional materials on reproductive health. My daughter is also enjoying her first downloaded ebook using the PDF search engine. She is making the most of her summer vacation by reading ebooks. My son, on the other hand, is reading a lot of science fiction and thriller stories lately. Thanks to the free pdf search engine. It really offers convenience in searching for reading materials. We don’t have to go to the bookstore to buy books.

Early Business Cards Versus Visiting Cards in the US

Business cards as we know them today are marks of distinction. Every start-up entrepreneur wants to invest in a cool business card before making a dollar’s worth of profit. It’s a fashion statement to possess business cards; even if many people completely ignore their usefulness.

However, this was not always so in the early days of the United States. Business cards did not always enjoy the high class status that they do today. If you came to a person’s house and left a business card, it meant that you had come to collect bills. For many, bill collector is not a noble profession.

The “noble” cards of those days were known as visiting cards. These were often embossed in gold letters, with ornate coats of arms and other designs, and were carried in sophisticated, expensive little boxes.

According to the rules of etiquette, a gentleman could not just barge into another gentleman’s house for a personal visit. If you wanted to visit someone, you had to send your servant to that person’s house to leave your visiting card. If they sent back a visiting card, that meant that a visit had been granted. If no visiting cards came or yours was returned in a white envelope, social etiquette said that you had been refused a visit.

Visiting cards were mostly used by the so-called nobility in the U.S. “Nobility” may be a strange concept to modern Americans, but it was an accepted social class in those times. A gentleman’s collection of visiting cards told you who had been gracing his residence with their presence; visiting cards, both yours and others, were a status symbol.

Lower classes, merchants, and working people also used a kind of card. People used them to promote their businesses. Socially, such self-advertising was seen to be in poor taste compared to the blue-blooded visiting cards.
