    two questions

    Hi Teacher,

    Could you please tell me the meanings of the parts in red?

    1.A:I have been getting all kinds of urgent communiqué about you. What
    have you done?
    B: It’s a long story. And I haven’t time. What have you heard?
    A: That you’ve gone private. That you’ve been turned and
    are singing like canary
    B: What?
    A: I heard you’ve made a deal with the Chinese.

    Thanks a lot.

    2. The assistant manger showed her the huge bedroom with a large canopied
    bed in the center. What a waste, Pier thought. In one night,
    I could make a fortune here.
