She chooses to change her name andhijack a trendy but fake African identity, rather than strive tounderstand and accept the beauty of her true heritage. (MORE)

Be very careful when I or ME is part of a compound phrase. Ifyou're not sure which one to use, try leaving out the other partsof the compound phrase and see if the sentence sounds correct. For example, is the sentence "My dad spoke with he and I" writtencorrectly? Here, "he and I" is the compound, …so try the samesentence with only one of the two words: Both "My dad spoke to I"and "My dad spoke to he" make no sense grammatically, so thecorrect wording must be "My dad spoke to him and me.

The difference between EBIT and EBITDA is depreciation and amortisation - why include or exclude depreciation and amortisation? In both cases we are trying to estimate a base level of cash flow from the business. The two key components of calculating this base level of cash flow are the profits that… the business produces and the on-going investments required by the business to achieve these cash flows - the capital expenditure that the company needs to undertake to achieve the profitability. EBIT includes depreciation and amortisation, which are not cash items, but that act as estimates (imperfect - but an estimate) of capital expenditure. EBITDA removes depreciation and amortisation and thus just focuses on the profitability of a company without considering the investment required to achieve the profitability. peace nz (MORE)

"I" is a subject pronoun and normally goes before the verb (e.g., I speak.) "Me" is an object pronoun and goes after the verb or after a preposition (e.g., Wait for me.) Sometimes I can go after the verb in a question using the verb "be" (e.g., Am I late?) Some people can become confused about usin…g "I" or "me" when more than one person is involved. Perhaps you are wondering if "John and I" or "John and me" is the correct form. To make sure the pronoun you are using is correct first say the sentence without the other name. For example: " John and I are going bowling ." So first say the sentence without John, " I am going bowling ." ( Are changed to am because the subject is now singular) It doesn't make sense to say " Me am going bowling ." as the pronoun is before the verb and should be "I" instead. Accordingly, you know that "I" is the correct term to use. Of course there will be sentences where me is the correct pronoun. For example, you might say ' John came bowling with Jack and me' . You'd say, 'John came bowling with me' rather than ' John came bowling with I' , so you know that in this kind of example, 'Jack and me' is correct, while 'Jack and I' , would be wrong. (MORE)
