    2. 文法的には問題がないんだけど。。。日本語で言いたいのはなんですか? "I had a book from the library, but I only flipped through it quickly since it seemed boring." ってことでしょうか。 flick より flip の方が自然でしょう。 "a borrowed book" + "from a library" : 重複です。Books from the library are always borrowed, so there's no need to add "borrowed" here. "from a library" → "from the library". "a" を使ってしまうと「え?どこの図書館?」になる。「どっかの図書館」って感じ。いつも行ってる図書館なら「the」にするのがいいでしょう。

    2. #1 and #2 are ok but they mean different things. #3 is ok but #2 is a better way to say it. #4 is so-so; #5 is a better version. These also mean something different from #1 and #2. #6 should be "a word from another country." It's ok but also means something different. #7 is good, depending on what you're trying to say. --- It's hard to say what's used most often since they mean different things. A "foreign word" is a word in a language other than your own. To English-speakers, for instance, "keitai" would be a foreign word. A "loanword" is a word that comes directly from one language but is used in another language, without changing the meaning. For instance, English uses the German word "kindergarten" for "幼稚園." It's not just a foreign word anymore because you'll find it in English dictionaries as an "English" word. A "foreign origin" word would be a word that comes from another language, probably many years ago, but is not a loanword because it's only the origin that is foreign, not the exact word or the exact definition. English is full of words of foreign origin, including Greek, Latin, native languages, etc. An example would be "school," which originally comes from the Greek "skhole." "School" is English, not foreign, but its origin is foreign. A "word from another country" isn't always tied to language, since some countries speak many languages and some languages are spoken in many countries. For instance, Americans use the word "truck" but in the UK they say "lorry." To Americans, "lorry" would be a word from another country, although that's not the term they'd use. They'd just call it "a British term" or "a Britishism."

    2. Valuation: How much all the shares are worth. Float: how many shares are tradeable. We create company AAA with 10 shares in total. An investor comes and lets us borrow some money. The investor thinks that our shares will sell at $200 each. Our pre-IPO valuation is $2000. 10 shares times $200. During IPO we sell one share at $100. Our valuation after the IPO is $1000 (10x100). Our float is one share $100. We received $100 in the IPO to finance our operations. Next day we sell one more share at $150 Our valuation is $1500 Our float is $300 (two outstanding shares at $150 each) Our proceeds from the IPO is $250. Q1: Uber last borrowed some money from Toyota. We do not know how much. Toyota thought the valuation will be $76B. Some shares were sold at the IPO. We don't know how much. From what I was able to find it is around 27m shares, or $1.27bn. Float is 27m shares, or $1.27bn. We do not know how much of that went to Uber, as some shares may have come from investors. Q2: we do not know how much debt or cash Uber has. They will have to disclose it later, as they are a public company now. DIfference between $76B and $74B is not related to this.

    2. The expression "to be on borrowed time" (or "to live on borrowed time") means that a disaster (such as death) should have happened to you already, but still hasn't. However, it can happen any moment now. In this particular case, it means that the stock market should have crashed hard as soon as the yield curve inverted, but since it still hasn't, the real crash is coming any day now. The literal meaning is that you should be dead, but you borrowed time to live from someone else, so you are still alive. Once you run out of the time you borrowed, you will die.
