    2. What are the name for those punctuation: *, ^, &, ~,`, _, - ?
    3. What is the difference between measure and measurement?
    4. Supposed you are an Asian American who wants to have your family come and live in the US because they are still stuck in their country. Thus, you have to do some paperwork. What is the verb for that action?

    Re: Questions (help!)

    1. To care for is to have responsibility for the subject. To care about is simply to be concerned about the issue.

    2. # What are the name for those punctuation: * - asterisk, ^ - caret, & - ampersand, ~ - tilde,` opening single quote, _ - underscore, - -dash or hyphen

    3. Measure, as a noun, is more figurative, a standard of comparison, judgement, estimation. "The measure of a man." Or a bill: "The House passed the budget measure." It has a lot of other meanings, as well (Music, printing, math). Check the dictionary.
    Measurement is literal. "I'll take his measurements."

    4. You would have to start the immigration process. I don't know of a verb for this.
