    1. Becauseでしょう indicates guess, it can be used for current events and past events that we are not certain.

      This is like the subjunctive in English and Spanish, but instead uses a form or the copula, です, instead of conjugating the verb into another form.

    1. ています can be used to mean an action (instantaneous or continuative) takes place on a regular basis.

      For example, "Every year, many people die," or "Every day, he goes to work."

    2. For English, telling the difference between instantaneous and continuative verbs is easy, because we seldom, if ever, use “be +ing” form for the former. For Japanese, however, the situation is complicated, as ていますcan be used with both kinds of verb.

      There is no way to tell the continuity of a verb by simply looking at it. One must understand the concept before knowing the full meaning when paired with ています.

    1. use ‘本を貸していただけませんでしょうか’ to make it even politer.

      book PRT-OBJ lend/give-TE_FORM it-is-acceptable-NEG COPULA-SUGGESTIVE PRT-INTERROGATIVE. "Is it not acceptable to give me your book?"

    2. ‘本を貸してくださいませんか’ (Can’t you lend me your book?)

      (your) book PRT-OBJ give-TE_FRM please-NEG (cannot) PRT-INTEROG (?). "Can't you give/lend me your book?"

      Using くださいません is the negative of ください which, when coupled with か makes a polite order in the form of a question: instead of "Please give me your book," it is "Can't you lend me your book?"

    3. when you ask the same people to do something FOR you, e.g. lend you a book or sign a recommendation letter for you, you can’t just use ください.

      This is like a homeless person saying "give me money, sir." It is still an order.

    6. Annotated Bibliographies This post is regarding the AIDS quilts found at the NAMES project. The questions are marked by bullet points. These questions are the basis of my research, and the thought process that went into why I made this entry. The inverted pink triangle for many years has been a simple to the LGBT and the struggle they have been through. Originally just a pink triangle, the symbol was used to identify homosexuals in Nazi controlled prison camps. Later that same simple (just inverted) would be a hope and beacon to the anyone who has been affected with HIV/AIDS. The movement would be to send a message of “Silence=Death”, that if nothing is done then people will surely continue to suffer and die. How did the inverted pink triangle push the LGBT community forward and improve awareness for HIV/AIDs from its dawn to the present? Morris, Charles E. “ACT up 25: HIV/AIDS, Archival Queers, and Mnemonic World Making.” Quarterly Journal of Speech, vol. 98, no. 1, Feb. 2012, pp. 49-53. EBSCOhost The author Charles E. Morris lll, takes the remembering history as a great importance to society and see it as path way to a better future; stating that AIDs “significance and transformation” show the “welter” of “futurity” (Morris 1). Morris then goes on to present that the government did nothing  as the Reagan administration passed no new orders or bills to help the infected and the supreme court case Bowers v. Hardwick’s, which didn’t allow lawful protection of homosexual sodomy,  and so the people had to take matters into their own hands starting the ACT UP movement in San Fransisco, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and several other cities. The evidence provided is documented historical content of the events that happened during the inception of the ACT UP movement.  All throughout the essay Morris has a certain tone about him, the same way a proud American might talk about the Revolutionary war, his purpose is to reembody the history the the LGBT and AIDs awareness on to the present generation so they won’t forget and continue to the fight the good fight. The intended audience would be the younger demographic of the U.S today, as the younger generation of millennials continue to progress, Morris wants them to remember the history of that progressive era that led to them.   The article can be specifically tailored to those who fear the concept of them being homosexual. If someone was “still in the closest” this article is show that they are not alone and never will be, and for them to embody the ideals and passion that these innovators envisioned for America. The source connects with my personal quilt by showing the passion that the inverted pink triangle represent. In a way it honors those who came before and those who have struggled but in more deeper sense it imagines a world that could have been or has still yet to come. A world that Renard did not live long enough to see it become a reality. The Valkyrie helmet is iconic symbol of the opera, often the tradition go to outfit for opera performances. The norse viking helmet is often associated with the opera through it many appearance on stage all throughout Europe and popular opera theaters in America like the New York opera. How has the HIV/AIDs virus affected the opera and its fan base? Brass, P (2016, February). Did AIDs kill New York City opera?. Huffingtonpost. Perry Brass is 19 times published author and have won several literary awards: IPPY awards, Lambda Literary Awards, and Ferro-Grumley Fiction Award from New York’s Ferro-Grumley Foundation just to name a few
