Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

July 31, 2013

Maria asks…

Can you choose what specific missions you want to fly in the air force?

In the Royal Canadian Air Force, could I choose what missions I want to fly on a given aircraft? I want to train on the C130s and I would like to fly SAR with them, but do I have any choice, preference or say in which squadron I’m posted to? Would I be allowed to request to be posted to a transport and rescue squadron, as opposed to something like tactical airlift or transport?

admin answers:

Don’t expect to choose your mission.
You might have a dream list- but remember no matter what you want to do-
if the RCAF needs you doing something else you do that.

Lizzie asks…

How do I choose my mission on 007 Legends?

How do I download and choose the Skyfall mission on 007 legends? Do I have to complete other missions in order to play the skyfall part?

Steven asks…

How can I unlock the extra on Secret Saturdays: Beasts Of The 5th Sun PSP?

When I go to the map where I choose mission, press start and there will be an extra page in there. How can I get all of them unlock? Please Help

admin answers:

I’m assuming PSP is the same as the Wii one so let’s see, if you’re talking about Concept Art, Movies, Secrets or the Cryptipedia, I’ll try to explain the best I can.
Concept Art- Beat the game
Movies- Each movie is what plays at the beginning/end of each level. Unlock those by completing each level and beat the game to unlock a behind the scenes one.
Secrets- Those are unlocked with secret codes. I think the other way was to scan all of the Beast of Bownesses in each level, and according to which level they’re all scanned on, that’s the secret that’s unlocked.
Cryptipedia- Scan the cryptids and artifacts in each level 2-3 times (3 if you want all of the information) and they appear in the Cryptipedia through scans. 5 other cryptids appear and can be scanned after unlocking them, which you need the codes for.

Hope this helps. I only have the DS and Wii versions, so I’m not entirely sure how the PSP one is set up. From what I’ve seen I think it and the Wii have the same gameplay, but not sure about the rest. Adieu~

admin answers:

Look; Tell your parent that you want to get married. But you want to focus on your education first; that you wont be able to balance a family life with going to school. Once you’ve gone to a community college; if you do well you can transfer to a university. Or even if you just get a degree in community college to can get a good job and move away.

admin answers:

No, i dont have strict parents well none of my other asian friends have strict parents too. So i guess its just the few who do maybe its not the culture its just the parents. And the term for arrange marriage is when you see someone you think you’d like to be commited to and you tell your parents and ask them to plan it for you.

Carol asks…

I have wrote a song can anyone tell me if they think its good or not?

Soldiers take it in their stride

What am I doing (pause) in this place its taking its toll on me
Thinking of leaving but that’s not an option for someone like me
Nowhere to run (pause) just stop (pause) and fight like a man.
Charge the enemy give them hell, that’s right its quitting time

Get shot at, beat up, frozen in time
Getting shot is part of the job
Gashes and slashes with pain on the way
Soldiers take it in their stride
Suck up and get on with your life

Finished with learning, I’m ready; let’s do this, I haven’t got all night
What are you waiting for, there’s someone there, I’ve got him in my sight
Pull the trigger back, head shot smack, but why am I sitting on the fence
Just do it (pause) kill him (pause) or does he deserve another chance at life
Live or die it’s easy to choose, don’t forget your handbag with your shoes.

Get shot at, beat up, frozen in time
Getting shot is part of the job
Gashes and slashes with pain on the way
Soldiers take it in their stride
Suck up and get on with your life

Getting darker (pause) light is fading (pause) heaven’s gate is on its way
Reservation with your name, on the table with your mate, don’t give up it’s not too late
Darkness fading (pause) light is shining (pause) family crying (pause) and it’s good to be alive
Second chance is all I need, reconcile with my own creed; deal is done and signed the deed

Get shot at, beat up, frozen in time
Getting shot is part of the job
Gashes and slashes with pain on the way
Soldiers take it in their stride
Suck up and get on with your life

Your Questions About Carnitine

July 29, 2013
By

Sandy asks…

how does the l-carnitine facilitate the breakdown of fats in the body?

According to the article that I have read, one of the side effects that you can get from L-carnitine is increase in appetite. how was that?

guys please help me, this is for my term paper.. your answer will be highly appreciated.. thanks again.
^oo^

admin answers:

Carnitine transports long-chain acyl groups from fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix, so they can be broken down through β-oxidation to acetyl-CoA to obtain usable energy via the citric acid cycle. In some organisms such as fungi, the acetate is used in the glyoxylate cycle for gluconeogenesis and formation of carbohydrates.

Fatty acids must be activated before binding to the carnitine molecule to form acyl-carnitine. The free fatty acid in the cytosol is attached with a thioester bond to coenzyme A (CoA). This reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme fatty acyl-CoA synthetase and driven to completion by inorganic pyrophosphatase.

The acyl group on CoA can now be transferred to carnitine and the resulting acyl-carnitine transported into the mitochondrial matrix. This occurs via a series of similar steps:

1. Acyl-CoA is conjugated to carnitine by carnitine acyltransferase I (palmitoyltransferase) located on the outer mitochondrial membrane

2.Acyl-carnitine is shuttled inside by a carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase

3.Acyl-carnitine is converted to acyl-CoA by carnitine acyltransferase II (palmitoyltransferase) located on the inner mitochondrial membrane. The liberated carnitine returns to the cytosol.
Human genetic disorders such as primary carnitine deficiency, carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency, carnitine palmitoyltransferase II deficiency and carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase deficiency affect different steps of this process.

Carnitine acyltransferase I undergoes allosteric inhibition as a result of malonyl-CoA, an intermediate in fatty acid biosynthesis, to prevent futile cycling between β-oxidation and fatty acid synthesis.

Maria asks…

What can I do to improve my memory? URGENT AND SERIOUS PLEASE?

I’ve been struggling for years to improve my memory (to remember things I saw, ate, and especially, to remember chess moves (like playing 3 games at the same time and remember all moves in all three games after they are over). I’ve taken Max Factor expensive medicine – also L-Carnitine I bought at Wal Mart…. what can I do to improve my memory? Someone told me that food cooked in aluminum pans can affect memory – I’ve eaten food cooked in aluminum pan all my life. What can I do now to have a better memory?

admin answers:

You must connect emotional feelings to the events and the facts you need to remember. It’s a blessing and a curse. But, if you can make your self more emotional — more hypersensitive — your memory will improve. The amygdala (an almond-shaped structure deep within the limbic system of the brain) is intimately connected to both emotional-gatekeeping and memory. The limbic system is an evolutionarily “primitive” part of the brain, and is believed to control instincts and intense emotions such as “fight or flight”. The secret to having a good memory is to deliberately infuse emotional feelings into the events and “facts in life” that you want to remember.

Even a seemingly sterile telephone number could take on emotional meaning if you look for a pattern within the digits, and TRY to associate that pattern with something you recall from your emotional memories.

When I study or read a book, I try to “hear” the words on the page as a spoken voice filled with cadence, inflection, and passion — even if the topic is quite dry.

Your Questions About For Those Tears I Died Lyrics

John asks…

What are the lyrics to the song “Suicide season” by Bring me the horizon?

I just want the lyrics to that specific song actually so other lyrics will be useless. And I can’t open links or go to websites so I need the lyrics as your comment.
Please and thank you!

admin answers:

Hey,

Here you go:

We stare at broken clocks, the hands don’t turn anymore
The days turn into nights, empty hearts and empty places
The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too
For when he died, he took a part of you

No time for farewells, no chances for goodbyes
No explanations, no fucking reasons why
I watched it eat you up, pieces fallen on the floor
We stare at broken clocks, the hands don’t turn anymore

If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way
I would climb my way to Heaven, and bring him back home again
Don’t give up hope my friend, this is not the end

We stare at broken clocks, the hands don’t turn anymore
The days turn into nights, empty hearts and empty places
The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too
For when he died, he took a part of you

Death is only a chapter
So let’s rip out the pages of yesterday
Death is only a horizon
And I’m ready for my sun…
I’m ready for my sun to…
I’m ready for my sun…
I’m ready for my sun to set

This is suicide season!

If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way
We would climb our way to Heaven, and bring him home again
If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way
We would climb our way to Heaven, and bring him home again

If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way
We would climb our way to Heaven, and bring him home again
We would do anything to bring him back to you
We would do anything to end what you’re going through

If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way
I would climb my way to Heaven, and bring him home again
I would do anything to bring him back to you
Because if you got him back, I would get back the friend that I once knew

Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

July 27, 2013
By

Laura asks…

What negative effects does marijuana have on the body?

At school they said that on joint will have 4 times the negative effects on your lungs as 1 cigarette. Is this true? Are there any other PHYSICAL dangers of smoking marijuana?

admin answers:

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in North America. Yet, myths continue regarding its effects on the body and brain. In this article you will learn the basic facts about Marijuana. What it is, what its effects are, what kinds of treatments are available and how to get help if you need it.

What is Marijuana?
Marijuana is a dry, shredded green/brown mix of flowers, stems, seeds, and leaves of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, it usually is smoked as a cigarette (joint, nail), or in a pipe (bong). It also is smoked in blunts, which are cigars that have been emptied of tobacco and refilled with marijuana, often in combination with another drug. Use also might include mixing marijuana in food or brewing it as a tea. As a more concentrated, resinous form it is called hashish and, as a sticky black liquid, hash oil. Marijuana smoke has a pungent and distinctive, usually sweet-and-sour odor. There are countless street terms for marijuana including pot, herb, weed, grass, widow, ganja, and hash.

The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). It is the way THC interacts with brain chemistry that causes the “high” from marijuana.

Effects on the Brain and Body
When someone smokes marijuana, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream, which carries the chemical to organs throughout the body, including the brain. The short-term effects of marijuana use can include:
• Problems with memory and learning;
• Distorted perception;
• Difficulty in thinking and problem solving;
• Loss of coordination; and
• Increased heart rate.

Research findings for long-term marijuana use indicate some changes in the brain similar to those seen after long-term use of other major drugs of abuse – changes that can include withdrawal symptoms when marijuana use is stopped. One study has indicated that a user’s risk of heart attack more than quadruples in the first hour after smoking marijuana.

A study of 450 individuals found that people who smoke marijuana frequently but do not smoke tobacco have more health problems and miss more days of work than nonsmokers. Many of the extra sick days among the marijuana smokers in the study were for respiratory illnesses. Even occasional use can cause burning and stinging of the mouth and throat, often accompanied by a heavy cough. Someone who smokes marijuana regularly may have many of the same respiratory problems that tobacco smokers do, such as daily cough and phlegm production, more frequent acute chest illness, a greater risk of lung infections, and a greater tendency to obstructed airways. Some of marijuana’s adverse health effects may occur because THC impairs the immune system’s ability to fight off infectious diseases and cancer.

Marijuana use has the potential to promote cancer of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract because it contains irritants and cancer causing chemicals. In fact, marijuana smoke contains 50 to 70 percent more cancer causing hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke. Marijuana users usually inhale more deeply and hold their breath longer than tobacco smokers do, which increases the lungs’ exposure to cancer causing smoke. These facts suggest that, puff for puff, smoking marijuana may increase the risk of cancer more than smoking tobacco.

Research has shown that babies born to women who used marijuana during their pregnancies may have problems with brain development. During infancy and preschool years, marijuana-exposed children have been observed to have more behavioral problems and poorer performance on tasks of visual perception, language comprehension, sustained attention, and memory. In school, these children are more likely to show problems in decision-making skills, memory, and the ability to remain attentive.

Effects on Behavior and Learning
Depression, anxiety, and personality disturbances are all associated with marijuana use. Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana use has potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person’s existing problems worse. Because marijuana compromises the ability to learn and remember information, the more a person uses marijuana the more they are likely to fall behind in growing their intellectual, job, or social skills. In addition, research has shown that marijuana’s negative impact on memory and learning can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off.

Students who smoke marijuana get lower grades and are less likely to graduate from high school, compared to their non-smoking peers. In one study, researchers compared marijuana-smoking and non-smoking 12th-graders’ scores on standardized tests of verbal and mathematical skills. Although all of the students had scored equally well in 4th grade, the marijuana smokers’ scores were significantly lower in 12th grade.

Workers who smoke marijuana are more likely than their coworkers to have problems on the job. Several studies associate workers’ marijuana smoking with increased absences, tardiness, accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and job turnover. A study of municipal workers found that those who used marijuana on or off the job reported more “withdrawal behaviors”—such as leaving work without permission, daydreaming, spending work time on personal matters, and shirking tasks—that negatively affect productivity and morale.

Is Marijuana Addictive?
Long-term marijuana use can lead to addiction for some people; that is, they use the drug compulsively even though it often interferes with family, school, work, and recreational activities. Drug craving and withdrawal symptoms can make it hard for long-term marijuana smokers to stop using the drug. Feelings of irritability, sleeplessness, and anxiety are reported by people who are trying to quit.

Treatment
Group therapy that focuses on becoming aware of what feelings or events trigger marijuana use and then coming up with strategies to avoid use has been shown to have the most success. Although there are currently no medications proven to reduce cravings for marijuana, researchers have reported recent discoveries that may make a medication available that can help reduce cravings.

David asks…

What are the consequences of not getting enough sleep?

I have been having trouble getting enough sleep because of school and my big sister sometimes wakes me up while I’m sleeping because she likes bothering me. I’ve only been getting about 6 hours a night for the past month. Is this bad? What’s going to happen?
It doesn’t work. My mom just tells her to stop but she does it again.

admin answers:

Long-term sleep deprivation can be dangerous, but you’re at least getting a little sleep. What you could expect to see in you case might be:
Difficulty concentrating
Weight gain (when we’re tired, we tend to feel more hungry)
Headaches
Moodiness
An impaired immune system (ie you’re more likely to get sick more easily.)

Have your mom sit down and have a serious talk with your sister–and you should have one too.
You should try a sleep mask and/or ear plugs too.

Robert asks…

How can I tell if I have a staph infection on my tongue?

I have a small s shaped sore on my tongue, it began as an inflamed bump and now it looks more like a cut. It is sore like a burn and towards the tip of my tongue. I plan on seeing a doctor but I’m going to be traveling for work all week. I was wondering if anyone has had this before?

admin answers:

You cannot tell for sure if it is staph without being tested. It may be a canker sore. Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in the mouth and often make eating and talking uncomfortable. Canker sores are a bit of a mystery, but they can occur at any age. They are not contagious. You just get them. There are two types of canker sores:

Simple canker sores. These may appear three or four times a year and last up to a week. They typically occur in people between 10 and 20 years of age.
Complex canker sores. These are less common and occur more often in people who have previously had them.

The exact cause of most canker sores is unknown. Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple canker sores. Certain foods – including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes, and strawberries) – can trigger a canker sore or make the problem worse. Sometimes a sharp tooth surface or dental appliance, such as braces or ill-fitting dentures, might also trigger canker sores.

Some cases of complex canker sores are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency; and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Celiac disease and Crohn’s disease.

To relieve pain and speed healing:

Rinse your mouth. Use salt water; baking soda (dissolve 1 teaspoon of soda in 1/2 cup warm water); hydrogen peroxide diluted by half with water; or a mixture of 1 part diphenhydramine (Benadryl) to either 1 part bismuth subsalicylate (Kaopectate) or 1 part simethicone (Maalox). Be sure to spit out the mixtures after rinsing.

Cover lesions with a paste made of baking soda.

Try over-the-counter products that contain a numbing agent, such as Anbesol and Orajel.

Avoid abrasive, acidic or spicy foods that can cause further irritation and pain.

Apply ice to your canker sores or allow ice chips to slowly dissolve over the sores.

Brush your teeth gently, using a soft brush and toothpaste without foaming agents, such as TheraBreath.

Dab a small amount of milk of magnesia on your canker sore a few times a day. This can ease the pain and may help the sore heal more quickly.
