basics

“I think women have the advantage over men - they tend to be much more in touch with their feelings and understand the dynamics of how relationships work. Men are much more cold-blooded and less willing to explore what makes a marriage or a relationship work. We like to deal in results and women are interested primarily in the process of the relationship, the little things which are actually the basics of how men and women interact.”More [07/03/2006 12:07:00]
Mr. Shidler:
Now class, as we are going on a field trip, it's most important we know the basics of nature. Can anyone tell me, what are the four natural elements of the universe?


[Lisa raises her hand]



Mr. Shidler:
Lisa?



Lisa:
Earth.



Mr. Shidler:
Right. That's one. Um, Kevin?



Kevin:
Uh, air.



Mr. Shidler:
That's right. That's two. Uh, Christine?



Christine:
Um, fire!



Mr. Shidler:
Right. And now, Vanessa. Can you tell me what the fourth element is?



Vanessa:
Yeah, but I'm not going to.



Mr. Shidler:
Well, Vanessa, either you tell me what the fourth element is, or you tell me you don't know.



Vanessa:
Well, either way, I get something dumped on me.


[Gives in]



Vanessa:
Okay, water.


[And you know the rest]



Mr. Shidler:
Oh, it's moments like these that make teaching worthwhile.

[Max is listening to Huey Lewis while playing with miniature robots and watching a screen showing the very basics of humans kissing and making love]



Dr. Daniel:
[over the intercom] Max.


[Max switches from the video to the scanners]



Dr. Daniel:
Max?



Max 404:
Yes, Dr. Daniel?



Max 404:
Max, what is that noise?


[Max turns off the music]



Max 404:
I was doing some research, Sir.



Dr. Daniel:
On what?



Max 404:
[sounding a bit panicky] Earth. The twentieth century.



Dr. Daniel:
Have you logged in, Max?



Max 404:
Uh... no... but, I was...



Dr. Daniel:
Then do it now, Max, and make sure we have shut down for the night.

[two judges come in the trial room]



Lena Foster:
Morning.



Daniel's judge:
Good morning.



Daniel's judge:
Good morning.



Bob Diamond:
Good morning.



Daniel Miller:
Good morning.


[Bob Diamond signals Daniel to be seated]



Daniel's judge:
Mr. Miller, I'm sure your defender has explained all of the basics to you, but let me just say. Even though this feels like a trial, it really isn't. It's just a process that helps us decide, and as inperfect as it may be, we think it works quite well.



Daniel's judge:
What you're going to see on this screen, Mr. Miller, will look and feel so real to you you might be a little uneasy at first. But just relax. After a while, I think it will become pleasurable to you. They tell me it feels something like 3-D.


[female judge chuckles]



Daniel's judge:
Any questions, Mr. Miller?


[Daniel shakes his head "No"]



Daniel's judge:
Ms. Foster, you may begin.



Lena Foster:
Thank you, your honors. Over the course of the following four days, I will attempt to show that Daniel Miller, while he's a quality human being, is still held back by the fears that plague him lifetime after lifetime. I believe that I can show, without a shadow of a doubt, that he must once again be returned to Earth to wrok on his problem. May we begin in childhood, please? Could we go to 11419?



Daniel's judge:
By the way, Mr. Miller, that signifies you're 11 years, four months, and 19 days old. Is that clear?



Daniel Miller:
I think so.

With nobody over 30 in the last Test, it is a young side but a very talented one. A lot of great things came out of that match and we outplayed India for the bulk of it.

In terms of the way I was striking the ball it was a different level to the last two tournaments, way, way better.

That's when we're at our best. Teams have to say, 'who are we going to stop?' We know we've got kids capable of putting up numbers. Most of the time, we're very unselfish. It's something we didn't do our last outing. It was one pass and shoot. Sometimes they get too caught up in listening to outside factors. We got back to basics. We got the shots we wanted.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I think part of that is because we're trying to push the ball a little more. But by doing that we're giving up more easy baskets than by just walking the ball up the court.

We've got to get back to the basics.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

You can teach almost anyone determined to learn them the basics required to write sentences and paragraphs that say what you want them to say clearly and concisely.
