    what is the meaning of is up
    "to be up for" something means "to be ready for it" or "to feel like it" or "to be able to do it." If you're not up for something, that indicates a physical reluctance or inability usually, but it can also refer to a psychological reluctance to tackle the work.

    - I was supposed to wash the floor today, but I just wasn't up for it.
    - We can visit Beth in the hospital if you're up for it.




    4)pagel =a hard bread roll shaped like a ring
    (the word is bagel, not pagel)
    i don't understand the meaning of roll shaped

    It is a roll that is shaped like a ring. It is a hard bread roll that is formed in the shape of a ring.




    Here is a candle shaped like a flower

    what is the meaning of Teamster.

    The Teamsters is a powerful labor union -- an organization of 1.4 million workers that bargains collectively with employers to improve the wages and conditions of work for its members.

    If the employer tries to underpay the workers or to give them bad working conditions, the Teamsters can call a "strike" -- a refusal of the workers to work. This stops the employer's business, so employers try to go along with the union.
