    1. Meanings of words and phrases
    2. This is also called "lapping." It is fraud involving delaying the posting of receipts to hide the misappropriation of money (or sale item or whatever else was stolen.) For example: I work for your company, which sells widgets for $10. Customer A buys a widget. I steal the $10, and mark Customer A's payment as "pending" in your company records. Customer B buys a widget. I put Customer B's $10 in Customer A's account, then mark Customer B's payment as "pending." Customer C buys a widget. I put Customer C's $10 in Customer B's account, then mark Customer C's payment as "pending." You review the books. You see Customer A bought a widget with a $10 payment, Customer B bought a widget with a $10 payment, then Customer C bought a widget with payment pending. Everything looks normal, but I still have the $10 stolen. This continues until either I return the money I've stolen without being noticed (maybe I was just borrowing the money until my next paycheck) or until I can no longer keep the chain going and get caught. Either way, it is fraud.

    2. Рифма утеряна, но вот: Что касается того, кто долго смотрел, то утро, Приближаясь, медленно предупреждает начало грядущего дня. (В это время юный и цветистый май Украшает зеленую изгородь и влажную, нестриженую траву. Бледными губами коров и отбеленными кустами, А теперь солнце восходит наравне с ровным лучом,) Окрашивая в золотистый верхушки деревьев и гор; И когда оно поднимается, луга преображаются в лучшую сторону: Реки блестят от танцующего луча, Пробужденные птицы начинают своё влюблённое напряжение, И холм, и долина полны радости и аромата. Вот, каков вид этого; этого желанного возвращения, Для таких глаз, как мои, которые давно проснулись, чтобы оплакивать, Которые долго ждали света, и плакали напрасно. Если надо объяснить что-то или расписать подробнее, скажи.
