Activity 2:


[lo 3.2]


1. Della stood at the window of her shabby flat and looked out dully at a grey cat walking on a grey fence in a grey backyard. Tomorrow would be Christmas Day and she had only one dollar 87 cents with which to buy a present for her husband, Jim. She had saved every cent she could for weeks, with this result. Twenty dollars a week does not go very far. Expenses had been greater than she had calculated. Only $1,87 to buy her Jim a present! She had planned for months to give him something fine and rare and sterling.

2. Suddenly she whirled from the window and stood before the mirror. Her eyes were shining brilliantly as an idea flashed into her mind.

3. Rapidly she pulled down her hair and let it fall into its full length. Now there were two possessions of the James Willingham Youngs in which they took a mighty pride. One was Jim’s gold watch which had been his father’s. The other was Della’s hair.

4. So now Della’s beautiful hair fell about her, rippling and shining like a cascade of brown waters. It reached below her knee and made itself almost a garment for her. Then she did it up again nervously and quickly. Once she faltered for a minute while a tear or two splashed on the worn red carpet.

5. On went her old brown jacket; on went her old brown hat. With a whirl of skirts and with a brilliant sparkle still in her eyes, she fluttered out of the door and down the stairs to the street. Where she stopped, the sign read: “Mme Sofronie. Hair Goods of All Kinds” and Della entered.

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?
