My dad (68) and older brother (38) have been in business together for the last 10 years or so, and while business is booming, their relationship took a nosedive within a year or two of opening and has gotten progressively worse. My brother is the hardest working person I know, and he is 99 percent responsible for the success the business has had. He describes my dad as lazy and unmotivated, and they have argument after argument about how little my dad actually works or contributes, all while earning more than everyone else at the company and getting distributions at the end of the year as a part-owner. They signed a contract a couple of years ago that my dad would sell back part of his shares, and then he refused to do so when the time arrived. distributionsとは何のことでしょうか?あと、sell back part of his sharesの意味も教えてください。よろしくお願いします

1。distributionsとは何のことでしょうか?  (年末の利益の)分配、日本のボーナスのようなものでしょう。株主だから余計に貰っているということだと思います。 2。あと、sell back part of his sharesの意味も教えてください。  (父の)持ち株の一部を売り戻すこと > 持ち株の割合を減らし配当額を減らすこと、要するに仕事をしている息子を筆頭株主にする契約でしょう。

    My mom recently passed away at 91. She had a great life and went peacefully at home in bed during the night. I took charge of her medical care and finances after Dad died 10 years ago. After Mom's funeral, my brother insisted he would move into her house while he remodeled it, which could tie up the house for a year. It made no sense to me. I am Mom's executor, and I felt it was unfair to me and my other brother. When I said no, he got really angry, accused me of many mean, untrue things and announced that he disowned me. I responded that I love him and he will always be my brother, but it was his choice. The pain of losing my mom and my brother has been awful. Now I'm working to sell the house, and he interferes and is mean every step of the way. But I have to move ahead and do my job. I don't respond to anything negative he writes. Have you some advice on how to repair our relationship? tie up the houseはどのような意味でしょうか?あと、Have you some adviceはDo you have some adviceと何か違いはあるのでしょうか?よろしくお願いします

    My 7-year-old stepson has been having a lot of nightmares lately. I know he crawls into his mom’s bed at her house, and when he’s staying with us, he sometimes snuggles with his dad. The other night my husband traveled on business and my stepson asked to sleep in my bed. I felt weird about it and said no, but he could try the floor. He feared monsters would be able to get him down there, so we both spent a sleepless night on the couch. Was I heartless, or can a 7-year-old sleep in bed with his stepmom and not have it be weird? monstersとは何のことでしょうか?あと、get himはどのような意味でしょうか?あと、have it be weirdはどのような意味でしょうか?文法的解説もお願いします。よろしくお願いします

    My brother is 30 years old and has a history of making bad choices, including a DUI and probation. After several years adrift, he finally seemed to be getting his act together. He got accepted to graduate school and did well enough that he was offered a teaching position upon graduation. However, I recently found out that my brother was accused of sexual assault by a female undergraduate student. The college rescinded his teaching contract, and basically told him that if he disappeared, no charges would be filed by the institution or the accuser. My brother didn't fight it or get an attorney, he simply packed up and left town. I talked to him about it briefly and he shows no remorse, regret, guilt, or desire to defend his name. In fact, his attitude was cavalier and entitled, as though he was baffled that anyone would make a big deal about it. While I have no proof, his attitude toward the situation makes me fairly confident that my brother is, indeed, a sexual predator of some nature. 1 なぜbad choicesにprobationが含まれているのでしょうか? 2 remorseとregretはなにが違うのでしょうか? 3 his attitude was cavalier and entitledの意味を教えてください。 4 of some natureの意味は何でしょうか? 以上、よろしくお願いします
