Question:

Spoken English relies on many "separable verbs" such as "take on and take in" whose meanings are distinct: can you describe a technique for teaching these verbs to a native French speaker?

Answer:

Many of the Anglo-Saxon and Germanic seperable verbs have a French equivalent which has a cognate that English adapted after the 11th Century Norman Invasion: "assumer, assimiler" are synonyms of "take on and take in" but "assume and assimilate" can be more easily be assimilated.

Question:

Jasper John's 1954 painting titled "Flag" surprised its audience in several ways and MOMA in New York calls it an "icon... [with] historical specificity;" Describe these two reactions to the painting.

Answer:

The painting surprised the audience by its correct, measured representation of the 48 star flag of the USA in a time when abstraction was the dominant activity of most leading New York painters. The melted wax or encaustic colours of the painting reflect an ancient technique from the Roman Empire but Johns also sealed strips of the daily newspaper within the surface making it literally specific to those bits of the printed news.

Question:

In order to follow the Critical Path on a commercial new-build project, how would one best coordinate the Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing [MEP] packages with a reinforced concrete structure of columns, flat slabs, and sheer wall stair cores?

Answer:

The Critical Path of constructing vertical and horizontal routes for MEP services are best coordinated by a professional team using identical BIM modelling software such as REVIT or AECOSIM [alongside their Engineering software platform] in which the services are fully modelled within the BIM 3D model by the relevant engineer.
