Donald asks…

How to sign ferret in American sign language?

My daughter is hearing impaired, we need to know how to sign ferret without spelling it out so that she can sign it. I have looked every where and can’t find it.

admin answers:

My friend taught me an “F” handshape, palm down, scampering forward a little bit.

I’m not sure if it’s a common sign or not, so if signing with people that don’t know it, I would fingerspell it and use the sign to establish its meaning.

Mandy asks…

What would you like to know about sign language and the hearing impaired?

I am writing a report for an Honor’s College application on the hearing impaired. I’m polling to see what is of the most interest to a typical audience.

admin answers:

Being hearing impaired myself and not be part of the deaf community, I have always wondered why normal people believe I know sign language. I was never taught and was mainstreamed when I was young so I never had a interest in sign language. I was born with a hearing loss but won’t become deaf because my hearing nerves were not affected. I also hate when people assume that I’m deaf because they see my hearing aids.

Daniel asks…

Is sign language very different in different states or are they generally the same in every state?

I was planning on become a teacher for hearing impaired students and I was wondering if the ASL is different in other states. I’m planning on studying in NY but I might go to Oregon, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, or Maine. Thanks in advance!

admin answers:

Not every ASL is exactly the same.

Although ASL is used throughout the United States and English-speaking Canada and elsewhere where Americans and Canadians have established themselves, but every person has bits of different flavors to ASL. Different expressions, slightly different signs, new vocabulary, outdated vocabulary (often taught in books!), etc. I don’t know if I should compare these differences as “dialects” as sign languages are very different from spoken languages (and this holds true for all sign languages of the world — or as far as I know anyway) but yeah, if you’re just starting out in a classroom, you should first just follow what the instructor teaches because it’s proper and you want a good grade in the class, right? But what you could do in addition to just attending classes is to join a local deaf club. :)

Betty asks…

Help need done by May 21 or get an F?

2. Read the poem below. Consider the figurative language and imagery in this poem. What do they suggest about the poem’s theme? What idea is Lord Byron, the author, communicating, and what poetic techniques does he use to convey his message?
My teacher want it to me two paragraphs long.
thank you sooooo much

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

admin answers:

The first couple of lines can be confusing if not read properly. This is an enjambed line, meaning that it continues without pause onto the second line. That she walks in beauty like the night may not make sense as night represents darkness. However, as the line continues, the night is a cloudless one with bright stars to create a beautiful mellow glow. The first two lines bring together the opposing qualities of darkness and light that are at play throughout the three verses.The remaining lines of the first verse employ another set of enjambed lines that tell us that her face and eyes combine all that’s best of dark and bright. No mention is made here or elsewhere in the poem of any other physical features of the lady. The focus of the vision is upon the details of the lady’s face and eyes which reflect the mellowed and tender light. She has a remarkable quality of being able to contain the opposites of dark and bright.The third and fourth lines are not only enjambed, but the fourth line begins with an irregularity in the meter called a metrical substitution. The fourth line starts with an accented syllable followed by an unaccented one, rather than the iambic meter of the other lines, an unaccented syllable followed by an accented one. The result is that the word “Meet” receives attention, an emphasis. The lady’s unique feature is that opposites “meet” in her in a wonderful way.The second verse tells us that the glow of the lady’s face is nearly perfect. The shades and rays are in just the right proportion, and because they are, the lady possesses a nameless grace. This conveys the romantic idea that her inner beauty is mirrored by her outer beauty. Her thoughts are serene and sweet. She is pure and dear.The last verse is split between three lines of physical description and three lines that describe the lady’s moral character. Here soft, calm glow reflects a life of peace and goodness. This is a repetition, an emphasis, of the theme that the lady’s physical beauty is a reflection of her inner beauty.Lord Byron greatly admired his cousin’s serene qualities on that particular night and he has left us with an inspired poem.The poem was written shortly before Lord Byron’s marriage to Anna Milbanke and published shortly after the marriage

Ruth asks…

pervasive developmental disorder how do you deal with it? Is there away to make his behavior better?

My nephew has pervasive developmental disorder and autism. he is almost 3 years old.

He hits his head on anything he can to the point that he bleeds and has had concussions.

He is very mean to his brother who is 14 months old to the point where he cant be alone with him.

His therapist suggested brushing him from head to toe with a soft bristle brush every 2 hours which we do but it does not seem to help all that much.

We have told her this but all she ever says is “it should work”. we have asked his dr for help but get no where.

This is what PPD is problems with using and understanding language; difficulty relating to people, objects, and events; unusual play with toys and other objects; difficulty with changes in routine or familiar surroundings, and repetitive body movements or behavior patterns. Autism (a developmental brain disorder characterized by impaired social interaction and communication skills, and a limited range of activities and interests) is the most characteristic and best studied PDD.
I looked at that site already thanks.

admin answers:

One thing that can be calming for children on the autism spectrum is deep pressure. When he gets to that point try wrapping him tightly in a blanket and giving him a tight hug. That may be enough to help him regulate himself.

Try reading 2 of my favorite books : “the out of sync child” ( about sensory dysfunction) and “a parents guide to high functioning autism and aspberger’s syndrome: how to help your child thrive” these were 2 books that I found to be very helpful when my oldest son was diagnosed at 11 years old. I was basically given a diagnosis and some prescriptions and that was it. I had to educate myself. You might want to call the local children’s hospital and find out if they have an autism clinic with better doctors and therapists.

I asked in toddler and preschool and only got 1 answer.

admin answers:

I too have a son with pdd-nos. He is now 7 and he was diagnosed at age 4. He did the same things as your nephew. It almost drove me crazy. Continue with the brushing technique it will benefit you in the long run. I recently figured out that dairy products cause a severe behavior problem in my son. We have not taken all dairy away but we do limit it. If you decide to try this remember that dairy is in a lot of foods so just try and limit him instead of taking it away completely. I don’t want to have my son not have any chocolate or any thing like that so we limit his intake. If he gets any extra like going to the cabinet and getting mm’s we know because he gets mean and is almost uncontrollable. I hope this helps you because I have been where you are now. Good luck and hang in there it will get better.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Pull The Trigger

Chris asks…

Springfield 1911 Military spec or para ordinance GI or can you reccomend another?Ever shoot a baby desert eagl?

I am going to buy my first 45 acp. Looking at either of these 2 they are both close in price at cabelas for $750. Was wondering if anyone who owns these could give me some feedback. Which one would you choose and do you have any other ones that would be close in price(within $100) to recommend? Basically looking for the best non poly 45 acp out there in my price range. My brother in law is looking for 1 also. He plans on using his for concealed. What would be the drawbacks of having a large single action for your concealed? I was wondering with using it for concealed carry if it has an 8+1 capacity say you load it to that. With it being a single action do you have to walk around with the hammer back in the the c00cked position ready to fire? or can you have the hammer forward with one in the chamber and just have to do a full trigger pull? thanks. Also still never shot it but i know alot of people on here hate desert eagle’s but does anyone have any experience with say their baby eagle in 40 or 45?
Sorry my bad the price is $650 for both the para GI and the springfield military spec. $750 was for the next para ordance above the GI
How are Taurus’ for 1911′s? I have heard about the same amount of good vs bad for them for their cheaper pistols. Haven’t heard much about their 1911

Here’s a comparison of the Springfield and the Para in a 1911 forum that should help you: http://forum.m1911.org/showthread.php?t=67851#post659831.

Helen asks…

Does God grant humans free will to enter Heaven?

Suppose I, or let’s say a mob boss for the sake of not further antagonizing myself, were to hold a gun to your head and say, “Give me your money or I’ll shoot.” Now suppose you don’t give the mob boss his money and get killed: who’s fault is it that you were killed? Sure, the mob boss pulled the trigger, but you consciously didn’t choose the option that would save you from getting murdered. Is the mob boss innocent? Did you bring it upon yourself? “Of course,” you‘re probably thinking, “That’s clearly murder because I was given an unjust choice and ultimately shot against my will.”

Now consider the notion that God says, “Do as I say or I will burn you in hell for eternity.” Well suppose you don’t do as he says. Are these situations at all different? After all, if given the choice between eternal bliss and eternal torture, few would ask to be sent to Hell. God ultimately makes the decision to send people to Hell just as the mob boss is ultimately pulls the trigger, not the victims.

It’s not exactly free will then is it? It’s do what I say and be forced to live in an inescapable and eternal paradise or don’t do what I say and be forced to live in an inescapable and eternal oven.

admin answers:

If you assume a God, and I don’t know why you would, then you have to understand that said God MAKES THE RULES.

There is never any stipulation in the major scriptures that says God plays by the same rules he sets for humans, nor should anyone expect there to be (if a deity is assumed to be given).

There’s really no way to use human behavior to argue about God. Luckily, God does not appear to exist.

Michael asks…

What do you think about my poem?

Nightmare

Pain controls my life
he chooses my every step
and when I think that I can take no more
I hear the voice of death
he says he’s my way out
he says come be with me
he says just listen to the words I say
and I will set you free
but what will I have to do I say
he says soon enough you‘ll know
just do what I say and don’t look back
and pain will let you go
tell me what to do I say
to finally win this game
just close your eyes and don’t look back
and you‘ll be free of pain
ok now that I’ve done
now have I won the game
no there’s one more thing that you must do
to rid yourself of pain
well tell me what it is
this I need to know
just pull the trigger and don’t look back
and pain will let you go

suicide you speak of
this I ask you why
cause pain will choose your every step
until the day you die
this I cannot do
I’d rather live than die
then pain will choose your every step
and he will take your life
but pain is not that bad
he’s only here at times
only when i see her face
or dream of her hazel eyes
but the pain you cannot bear it
this is why you choose the blade
and you try to hide the dark-red cuts
that the steel has made
I only tried it once or twice
now I turn to friends
but you know that deep inside your heart
they just don’t understand
these words I speak are true
your friends just don’t know pain
and if you never pull the trigger
you‘ll always play this game
but what if I don’t like it
and I want to be alive
well I am death I’ll bring you back
I’ll bring you back to life
well then I guess I’ll do it
to rid myself of pain
well then pull the trigger and don’t think twice
and I swear you‘ll win this game

my hand is on the gun now
and then I start to cry
and halfway there I realize
that I don’t want to die
I try to stop myself
but Death controls my hands
I tell him I don’t want to die
but he tells me its the end
the gun is to my head now
tonights the night I die
and as I’m crying crimson tears
I say my last goodbye
Death makes me pull the trigger
but no one hears the shot
and as I take my final breath
my heart begins to stop
death has made me do it
when he said come be with me
I’m lying on the ground not moving
and don’t feel very free
and with a single thread of hope
as I’m holding on to life
I whisper God don’t let me go
and the dark consumes the light
thats one more lost redemption
and one more boy was broken
my life was lost because of her
because of her words unspoken
and as I’m drifting through the darkness
my nightmare finally ends
I’m lying in my bed now
and the light is shining in
I get out of my bed
and as I fall down to my knees
I say thank you God for showing me
that DEATH WONT SET ME FREE

David asks…

Do you like my poetry? Give me some critique? :) ?

Goodbye

I feel that old familiar sting,
As I return to you.
And I remember everything,
When time just flew and flew.

I feel that ache inside my chest,
And I hold back my tears.
A twisted, knotted, tangled nest,
Of those forgotten years.

As I get closer to that place,
And all those memories.
I close my eyes and see your face,
I barely hear my pleas.

I’m sorry, is all I can say,
Why did I let you leave?
I cannot keep my tears at bay,
I cannot help but grieve.

You let another replace me,
Another take my place.
Death conquered you,
You didn’t fight,
You lost that final race.

But now, seeing that cold, hard ground,
Where you lay, peacefully
I say goodbye for one last time,
And hope you forgive me.

A Farewell ♥

Though I am destined to depart
With dying tears and bitter heart
Will you wait for me, will you not forget?
Though I must leave, have no regret

I leave you with my memories,
My stinging pain and sorrowful pleas
I vow I shall return someday
For in your heart I‘ll always stay.

The battlefield is slick with blood
With dying bodies, dank with mud
There they lie, now put to rest
Now finished with life’s final test

I see your face, I call your name
From heaven comes sweet, fresh, new rain
And with my dying breath, I pray
That you will forgive me, someday.

Wind

I blow, I twist, I swirl and prance
So gracefully I whirl around
I‘m everywere, I move and dance
So beautiful, without a sound

I blow your hair, I cool your face
A fluid motion you can’t stop
I‘m something that cannot be chased,
So fast, I‘m like a spinning top

I climb the mountains, chase the sky
A living, breathing, abstract life
Unstoppable, I cannot die
Not by an arrow or a knife

Alluring am I, so stunning
So unpredictable I am
Myschievous, and so cunning
I ebb and flow like nothing can

Yet sometimes, in the mist of time,
I‘m caught up in a howling rage
Still magical, and still sublime
The sea my audience, the sky my stage.

The man I thought I knew

I feel the sand beneath my toes,
This overwhelming feeling grows
The moon shines down, I think of you
And of the man I thought I knew
Why you left, I cannot say
If I had asked, would you have stayed?
If I had said I loved you so
Would you have stayed or would you go?
As I look at the moon tonight
Its eerie glow, its ghostly light
I just can’t help but think of you,
And of the man I thought I knew.

In my dream ♥

In my dream, I see you there
The wind flies and circles ’round my hair
It seems so real, It seems so true
It seems as if there’s only you.

In my dream, we laugh, we dance
Our eyes meet, I‘m in a trance
You tell me I‘m the only one
Who makes you smile like the sun.

In my dream, you take my hand
as our toes sink into the sand,
The sky is blue, the water gleams,
and everything is as it seems.

I open my eyes, my tears grow stronger
why can’t it last one moment longer?
And everyday as I awake
I see your face, and my heart breaks.

I‘m a 12 year old girl, and I was just wondering what you think. Which is your favourite? I already asked this, but I haven’t gotten any answers.

Thanks, :)

P.S. the “farewell” poem was for school, and I‘m not too crazy about iy…just so you know ;)

Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

December 28, 2012
By

Paul asks…

What can i do to boost my nonexistant immune system?

I had chemo shots back in 2003(methotrexate),and since then,my immune system has been low to the point that i get sick almost everytime i step foot outside of my house.
I drink OJ and eat fruits with vitamin C,but it doesn’t seem to help.
Any suggestions?

admin answers:

YOu may have to try a multi-modal approach.

Vitamin C is one approach, but you need to suppliment it with other thing to counteract any immuno suppressants

one that people do not usually think of is stress. Be sure to get a proper amount of sleep each night and to take some time out fo dealing with stress.

Also, exercise on a regular basis.

Suppliment your vitamin c with a healthy diet.

Try to think of the immune system needing energy to work, and anything that would detract from that energy or impair it would cause issues for your immune system’s performance.
Things like:
-stress
-malnutrition
-out of shape
-poor heating (like in the house)
-self-esteem issues

Laura asks…

How does one build up their immune system?

I’m not a big believer in taking vitamins. I actually do not like taking any kind of drugs of any sort, even for a headache. Can lack of sleep and stress weaken your immune system even if you are eating properly and exercising?

admin answers:

A balenced diet, adeqate rest and physical activity will help build your immune system. Taking vitamins and nutritional supplements is a nonsence option unless one has got problems with food and fluid intake, digestion and absorption. Stress including spending too much time on non physical activities (computer, TV, computer games etc) can impair immune system. Specific immunity can be obtained through vaccinations for certain conditions.

Chris asks…

What is the best way to boost your Immune System?

What foods or liquids can you est or drink to boost your antibodies & immune system?

admin answers:

I applaud you in your interest in strengthening your immune system with food. If you are interested in great ways to boost your immune system without food, go to www.immunesystemremedies.com

Boosting with food…..
As you may know, it is a challenge today to find foods that are mineral rich without added chemicals that are toxic.
The good news is it is possible to find healthy foods that are rich in vitamins, mineral, photonutrients, ect. For you body.

A place to start is looking for raw and organically grown fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Here is a sampling.
Vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, collard greens, and spinach are the great source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber,

Fruits (like blueberries, bananas , acai,and mangoes.) are good sources of antioxidants and phytonutrients

Proteins containing amino acids aids in the growth and repair of your immune system. Some protein sources can be chlorella , eggs, organic meat and poultry, fish especially those high in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, trout and tuna.

Medicinal Mushrooms such as Shiitake, Reishi, Maitake, and Coriolus Versicolor (turkey tail) are wonderful for building your immune system up.

Drinks like Wheatgrass, Aloe vera juice, green tea, white teas, and MonaVie juice are excellent drink choices to boost your immune system.

Whole grains like brown rice, millet, buckwheat, oats, and barley are also a valuable source of the vitamins, minerals and fiber that are an essential part of keeping the immune system healthy. Fiber helps cleanse the colon of toxins and helps prevent intestinal infections.

It is also important to avoid “bad” foods (“unprocessed” and “unrefined”) that will weaken your immune system.

Here is some suggestions:
Sugar contains no nutrients. Excessive sugar intake can deplete your body of several vitamins and minerals. Sugar impairs the ability of white blood cells to sweep up and kill bacteria. It also robs the body of key nutrients such as zinc that is vital for the immune function. Sugars food to avoid include soda pop, candy, many cereals, and ice cream.

Coffee Caffeine is a diuretic that contributes to the body’s loss of important nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The acid in coffee eats away the villi of the small intestine, reducing their effectiveness in supporting nutrient assimilation.

Alcohol (when consumed in excess), is a poison to every system of your body. It depresses the nervous system, inhibits the bone marrow’s ability to regenerate blood cells, is toxic to the liver, depletes B-vitamins, and is dehydrating.

Raw foods such as clams, oysters, sushi, very rare meats, and undercooked eggs contain infectious bacteria and intestinal parasites.

With the advent of pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilizer and green harvesting, our fruits and vegetables lack vital nutrients. Today, it is necessary that our diet will need supplements to the food for the immune system.
