THE RAINBOW PASSAGEWhen the sunlight strikes raindrops in the air, they act as a prism and form a rainbow. The rainbow is a division of white light into manybeautiful colors. These take the shape of a longround arch, with its path high above, and its two ends apparently beyond the horizon. There is ,according to legend, a boiling pot of gold at oneend. People look, but no one ever finds it. Whena man looks for something beyond his reach, his friends say he is looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Luke…Luke and Jack were close pals. Luke would lock the liquor in the locker room, which quite irked Jack. So to get back at Luke, Jack closed his ducks in a dark room. When Luke got to know about this, he went to Zachary, to complain. Zachary was cool, and a calm person, but Zachary concluded by saying that Jack is right. When Zachary cascaded the sequence of his conversation with Luke to Jack, Zachary and Jack decided to teach Luke a lesson. They locked Luke with his ducks in the dark, closed room, and drank his liquor, sitting on his sofa, the whole night.
Communication hitch... Sentence shaping/Pitch raise… Refers to the movement in pitch across a sentence. If the pitch goes up at the end of a sentence, mistrust and uncertainty are created in the listener. This often results in sounding as though a question is being asked. Energy Drop Energy and enthusiasm slumps when ending sentences. Speeding Talking too quickly, creating an impression of nervousness, irritation or even dishonesty. Braking Punctuating sentences with inappropriate pauses, creating impression of uncertainty and even irritation. Content Dilution Meaning someone who waffles or uses mitigation, neutral and unnecessary words unconsciously. Word Drag Over-elongates the vowel sound of a word.
