The word "Hello" has its origin back in 1827, if we go by the Oxford dictionary. It is extensively used as one of the most common conversation starters around the globe, along with "Hi" and "What's up?" over the phone or in person.
Different cultures have translated it into their language like it's "Hola" in Spanish, "Bonjour," in French, and "Konichiwa" in Japenese. Everyone uses it atleast two to three times a day as a greeting mostly, but back then people used this word to attract attention from folks or to surprise someone like "Hello, What do we have here?"

On the other hand, "Ahoy,"(synonym of hello) at that time was there for a longer span but personalities like Thomas Eddison urged people to use "Hello" as a requisite.

This depends on what email processor you’re using. Microsoft Outlook will certainly allow Microsoft Word, as will Gmail and a few other email providers - such as Verizon and Yahoo. Some kinds of files can have viruses or other things in the files that will harm the computer. As technology has gotten smarter, many of these are detected as you download the attached file, but some can still be missed.

In all, if you know for certain your email provider will allow you to attach a word processor file, then double check to make sure the person you are emailing it to can receive it. Sometimes, you will not be able to retrieve a file if the provider doesn’t allow that kind of file to be attached to emails by its users.

When you hear conservation and preservation, it may appear to you that they have the same meaning. Both terms are used by people who are giving protection to their environs but often miss them up. The fact is that these two terms are entirely different, though both have similar methods but are differ in their ideology. The conversation is the sustainable use of natural resources like water, wildlife, air, and all other resources we can get from earth. Some of these resources are renewable while some are not. While preservation means to maintain the present state of something.

Public communication is a common way of saying public speaking. Public speaking usually makes people scared even when they hear the term. However, it certainly doesn’t have to be if the person prepares the speech completely. To do this, the public speaker must take into account many things. The first things that a public speaker must do is to think about their audience. Knowledge of the audience will help dictate the writing for the speech and topics that need to be covered.

There are other crucial factors, but audience is the most important. If you don’t take this into consideration, you can’t progress to the next step in creating the speech. Writing a captivating speech with the audience in mind is important too.

Communication between the nurse and patient can be very important. it is true that one way communication is highly structureed as it is also true that one way communication has very little place in a patient nurse relationship. It can be said that even when a person hears a message but does not respond communication has taken place.

However, it is not true that one way communication is very important in a patient nurse relationship. Especially in an emergency situation it is in fact a good idea for the lines of communication to be kept open as much as possible and it is a good thing if the patient is able to communicate back to the nurse.

NTSC stands for National Television System Committee, which is the television broadcasting system used in North America and Japan. PAL stands for Phase Alternate Line. The significant difference between the PAL and NTSC version is compatibility with older television sets. The NTSC PS3 will only work with NTSC television sets. The PAL PS3 will only work with PAL television sets.

The NTSC PS3 cannot play PAL PS2 games when connected to an SDTV and vice versa. The NTSCPS3 has thirty frames per second, while PAL provides twenty- five frames per second. Both work equally well with HDTV sets and LCD screens.

The correct answer is C. To have a successful communication, one must relay his or her message to another person and must get feedback in return. This is vital between humans to convey their feelings and needs to avoid misunderstandings.

Communication also has been a tool in sharing information and knowledge for centuries thus we learn how ancient people lived through their writings that we read in textbooks or on the Internet. Through communication, we learn how to speak in our native language and can learn new ones by speaking with other people and interacting with them. It is great that humans and animals can communicate with their species as it promotes unity and harmony.

Nonverbal communication can be referred to as a process or method of passing information without the use of words, either written or spoken. Nonverbal communication is also known as manual communication. It was introduced in 1956 by psychiatrist Jurgen Ruesch and author Weldon Kees in the book Nonverbal communication. There are several nonverbal languages. However, Judee Burgoon recognizes six different nonverbal dimensions, which include:

1. Kinesics or body movement - involves facial expressions, eye contacts, body language, gesture, posture, nodding, and behavior.

2. The vocalic includes volume, rate, and message. A perfect example of this is sarcasm in which the tone of what a person says is different from what they mean.

3. The personal appearance.

4. Our environment and its component.

5. Our personal space - people are very sensitive to their personal space, which is normally reserved for intimacy; this passes a message to a stranger without been said that the other party should keep off.

6. Haptics or touch and chronemics or time.
