Thanks! :)
Oh, it's a lap top and a mac :) don't think I have a num lock?

admin answers:

Hi sunshine :)

There are three ways of doing this.

1. You can copy and paste special characters from a website like this: http://www.geocities.com/denmarks/SpecialChars.html

2. You can hold down Alt and type 3 on the Numeric Keypad (the keypad on the right, not across the top), then let go of Alt (use the left Alt)

3. You can type & hearts; (with no space) in most webpage or HTML-based spaces. It might work in MSN too, i’m not sure. ♥

Hope that’s just what you wanted!

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

Mark asks…

Why is the language of myth important? What is the purpose of a myth?

Why is the language of myth important? What is the purpose of a myth? What are some dimensions/components of religion that are commonly expressed in myths and how are these dimensions/components expressed?

admin answers:

Myths were before art was, before language or the written word. The Cave paintings at Lascaux and Alta Mira are some 30,000 years old. Were these paintings just stick figures representing a bunch of men and bison and bears and deer? Might there have been a need to paint these paintings? For luck in the hunt, for food, for survival. Wouldn’t these folk have invoked some kind of magic to aid and protect them in the hunt? Were these artists talking to the gods? Were they beseeching aid from the perils of living in those dark times?
Myths sprung up before religion. Every religion’s stories are retelling of universal mythic themes. The Creation of the World, the first Man and Woman, Heaven and Earth, a great flood, stories of heroes and heroines and dragons and serpents. A culture’s myths IS the storied foundation of the culture.
The great mythic themes were known before literature. All great works of literature are based upon mythic themes or stories. Noah’s Ark, Jonah and the great fish, Mo by Dick, and even the movie Titanic are all stories about man’s struggles with the seas the unconscious?). Myths and mythic symbols are the elementary particles of imagination and creativity. The cultural historian Jacques BRAUN has said: What links myth with Literature is … The Imagination.
Myth is before philosophy and science. The same questions that our religions used to ask, now our philosophies and our sciences try to answer. We may be an enlightened, technological society but we have the same needs as ever: protection, warmth, food, sex and love and children, happiness, doing good.
A culture’s mythology is a powerful tool for psychology, casting light on the culture’s shared unconscious. There is no better way to understand a culture deeply than to know and appreciate its myths, its stories, its dreams. Indeed, many of the symbols in our dreams are universal (Jung’s archetypes), or at least culture-wide, symbols whose meaning is invested in the mythic stories that they inhabit. And there are those who believe that these symbols and these stories are encoded in the very cells of our species’ DNA.
This is taken from a beginning of a book about myths.

Richard asks…

How do yall feel about the news that New Orleans will be evacuated many times this year during hurricanes?

I do not think tax payers should have to foot the bill for that. It is pretty obvious it is a bowl just catching water if people choose to go back and stay why do tax payers have to pay everytime to rescue them from an oncoming storm. Happy to have done it for Katrina but, man if you go back to the same place it shouldn’t be a tax payers expense. Not trying to be cruel just honestly don’t understand how the burden can keep falling on the people that actually pay taxes?
I am not a cruel person…I do believe you help where it is needed and yes there are people right here in the good old USA that need help more than we need to be rebuilding Iraq. But, I also know you don’t build a house in the middle of where you KNOW the water will be again and just expect to bailed out time and time again. Put New Orleans somewhere else to rebuild.

admin answers:

Man that is going to be a touchy subject. I am in Houston and I have friends and family on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
So I have seen the devastation and the destruction and the free loading first hand.
Let me fist say that not everyone in N.O. Needs a hand out. Some are good honest people and had the sense God gave a fly to get out of dodge before the storm. They will do so again. The ones that did not are the problem..
Did they learn their lesson the first time – we will see?

However!… If they choose to go back and it is a choice. I.E. There are a LOT of N.O. Residents that are now residents of H town that are not going back.
Anyway… If they choose to go back it should be at their peril.
Contrary to what “lynn” thinks. The Government does not owe them anything. That has been the problem all along. Too many people feel the U.S. Government should pay for their losses. Ahhh have ya ever heard of insurance? If you didn’t have it before and you are going back it should be REQUIRED.
The government is not a charity. It was not established to support and bail out the people who are to stupid to plan for an emergency. It is not like they did not know they were below sea level, it is not like they did not know a storm was coming. An accident is unexpected and catches you by surprise… A majority of N.O residents feel like this was an accident.
How many of them are willing to move back there and pay 2 or 3 times the taxes they were paying to build stronger levees and better drainage systems? I doubt many. So what… The rest of the tax paying U.S. Is supposed to foot the bill?
WRONG.
If they did not know before, they know now. N.O is below sea level and will flood. Anyone that rebuilds there should do so at their own expense and risk.
I would be happy to come spend a few days “helping”, that is what neighbors do… But do not expect me to pay for any aspect of your choosing to live there.
If I build my next home on the rail road tracks… There is a higher than probable chance that it is going to get hit by a train…. Duh.
The people of the US and the US Gov. Have given and given and are still giving… Don’t expect us to do it again.
As to where are they supposed to go…
Anywhere? As I said… There are lots of them here in Houston and to the best of my knowledge there are 49 other states to choose from. I mean come on…
Burn me once shame on you, burn me twice shame on me. NO THEY GOV SHOULD NOT PAY TO EVACUATE THEM.
Don’t look for the free hand out. Make a better choice.

Additional Comments:
I don’t think anyone should NOT move back there. I do however think it should be at their own risk. Put it anyway you want… It is BELOW SEA LEVEL and building there INVITES problems. I just heard on the news not an hour ago that the cost to rebuild the levees is now over 10 Billion.

That money should not have to come from the federal Government and the rest of the citizens of the U.S. Nor should any future federal funds for the next time. The lessons have been taught and should have been learned. If you can’t afford to insure your property to the level of replacement… You shouldn’t live there and expect me to pay for it.

Go ahead rebuild. I am all for it. As I said I would be happy to help. Point in case… I am leaving Tuesday 4/12 for my third trip back to Mississippi to help rebuild… So the work is not the issue. I just think the same values and nuances you and others are so fond of could be relocated to a safer place.

Bottom line it is not the buildings it is the people that make it.

And Yes I have been there several times.

Ken asks…

What makes a person liberal or conservative?

Is it something you are born with? Does it depend on environmental factors? Is it something that is taught?

admin answers:

I would say environmental, but that is not always the case. Education has an influence, but not to the point of full determination.

We all have some idea or concept of what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. A lot of things go into the composition, but ultimately each person must add their own psyche into the crucible, which will ultimately orientate the resultant growth towards either a more liberal or more conservative position.

Needless to say, we begin our journey as dynamic and diverse individuals having great potential for abstract and constructive thought. Our best hope, as Americans, is that the ingenuity and integrity which birthed this nation shall endure beyond mere liberal or conservative constructs.

One of our greatest perils is in the surrendering of that process whereby each person discovers and “proofs” the merits of ideals and concepts. Ignoring failures from perhaps the greatest perspective we have, history, is an open invitation to repeat them once more in our future. Yet, trying to navigate a ship through a mine field while only using a rear view mirror would be as equally disastrous.

We need to use the best of our nation to the very best of our abilities. To avoid the mistakes of the past and see clearly the best course to set for the future. And perhaps even more importantly, be willing to do whatever it takes to ensure the safety and passage of all those who are on board.
What good are the bright sails and the band playing briskly if, when the port calls, all are lost at sea?

Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language Is Known As

Lisa asks…

Being intimate with a hard of hearing guy?

I have been hitting on this guy who is hard of hearing. I’m not sure how much he can hear. I am very interested in him, but I do not know sign language. I was wondering if you would have any tips on how to deal with this in romantic situations (in bed).

Thanks.

admin answers:

What does hearing have anything at all to do with what goes on in bed?!! That’s not talking that’s physical and if he can’t understand body language, not only is he deaf, he’s mentally impaired as well.

John asks…

Spiritually : What is the significance of our breath?

Our breath is the only thing that is constant during our lifetime. When you are happy, sad, angry, sick, crying, laughing, healthy, joyful, in love, in hatred, while sleeping, while unconscious, while subconscious etc, the breath is the only thing that is a constant.

Additional Questions:

1. What is hidden in the language and pattern of our breath?
2. Have you ever analyzed or looked into the mystery of your breath?

admin answers:

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” We know how to breathe. It is something that occurs to us automatically, spontaneously, naturally. We are breathing even when we are not aware of it. So it seems not to think that one can be told how to breathe. Yet, one’s breathing becomes modified and restricted in various ways, not just momentarily, but habitually. We develop unhealthy habits without being aware of it. We tend to assume positions (slouched positions) that diminishes lung capacities and take shortened breaths. We also live in social conditions that is not good for the health of our respiratory system.

The first rule for correct breathing is that we should breathe through the nose. This may seem obvious, but many people breathe principally through the mouth. Mouth breathing can adversely affect the development of the thyroid gland. It can retard the mental development of children.

The nose has various defense mechanisms to prevent impurities and excessively cold air entering the body. At the entrance to the nose, a screen of hairs traps dust, tiny insects and other particles that may injure the lungs if you breathe through the mouth. After the entrance of the nose, there is a long winding passage lined with mucus membranes, where excessively cool air is warmed and very fine dust particles that escaped the hair screen are caught. Next, in the inner nose are glands which fight off any bacilli which have slipped through the other defenses. The inner nose also contains the olfactory organ-our sense of smell. This detects any poisonous gases around that may injure our health.

The yogis believe that the olfactory organ has another function: the absorption of prana from the air. If you breathe through the mouth all the time, as many people do, you are cheating yourself of all this free energy (prana). The yogis say this is a major factor in lowered resistance to disease and impairs the functioning of your vital glands and nervous system. Add to this the fact that pathogens can enter the lungs via mouth breathing, and you can see that it’s impossible to be healthy, not to mention vital, if you breathe through the mouth.

Given the great difficulty of designing foolproof, and cheatproof, experiments involving people, I have grave doubts that this level of significance will ever be achieved by this approach. But why should we rely on human experiments? If humanity never evolved, or if the earth were destroyed tomorrow by a cosmic cataclysm, neutrinos and quarks would still exist. Similarly, if spiritual energy exists, it
should not matter whether or not humanity does. The breath of God should be detectable throughout the cosmos, not just on earth.

The divine language mantras hidden in our breath, say gayatri mantra, Aum, etc., The mystery behind is the breath goes inside and come outside, if not come outside there ends the matter is the mystery.

The japa, meditations and prouncing mantras are the significance of our breath spiritually.

Joseph asks…

How would i write this name in Japanese?

Hi! I would like to know how would you write this japanese female name in Kanji and Hirgana:

Meimi and just Mei

Please give me the most pleasent Kanji meaning as this is my friends name but i dont know how it is spelled at the momnent thank you!

admin answers:

You can ignore most of this answer as an answer to your question, because I missed something in the original reading, but I still wanted you to know it, cause it’s interesting.

Typically, names are written in katakana, not kanji. Japanese expect this in forms you fill out. Kanji can be pronounced different ways, but the use of katakana leaves no doubt as to pronunciation. Hiragana are used for words of Japanese origin, while katakana are used for words of foreign origin and names. Meimi in katakana is メイミ and mei in katakana is メイ. In Hiragana, Meimi is めいみ. Those katakana given individually are as follows:
me メ
i イ
mi ミ

And the hiragana:
me め
i い
mi み

Remember that Japanese uses spaces neither between syllables nor words. You can tell where a word ends by it’s predictable ending (eg. -iru, -meru).

I was once engaged. Her parents didn’t like me. Her father gave me a Chinese name when I asked for one. His name for me meant ” lady cat” . I dind’t figure it out until later. Goes to show you that you need to know what you are doing when you give a name in kanji, hanzi in my case.

A similar thing happened when I informed a deaf-blind-speech-impaired acquaintance that I didn’t have a sign name. He gave me a sign name based on the way my first name sounds. Later, in my studies of sign language and Deaf culture, I found out that sign names based on how spoken language sounds are kinda insulting to the deaf. The man can’t be blamed. He was new to signing, himself. Now, my sign name indicates my favorite sport, soccer! I got it from a woman who has been deaf-blind for her entire life. This is another example of why it is a bad idea to rush a name.

I had to change my answer after re-reading your question, as I totally missed that your friend is Japanese. Among the Chinese community, people in America usually have a Chinese name and an American name. (Note: Chinese Americans where I live use the word “American” to mean “English-speaking”. I would not have chosen to use this word, myself.) I knew several people by their American names but only one by her Chinese name. Are you sure that your friend didn’t give you her American name or that, maybe, she gave you the Japanese word for “name”, 名身 (meimi, lit. “name person”), when you asked her for her name in Japanese? Sometimes this happens due to a miscommunication.

Found the following at http://www.japanese-names.org/japanese-girl-names.php:
Mami (真美) true beauty.
Mei (芽生) sprouting life. The character sei/shoo/i (生) was not easy to type with the Japanese keyboard layout and did not come up as part of the name “Mei” (I had to type it as sheng with a Chinese keyboard layout).
Mi (美) beautiful.

FYI: Remember that vowels are always pronounced separately in Japanese, except for double vowells. Double vowels are pronounced twice as long as their single counterparts.

I hope you can use this!

Lyrics to Promised Call :
Woke up about five o’clock
Had myself a veggie dog and said
Don’t stop

Don’t rot so pretty stop and say…

Slept through that buzzing sound
My schedule’s turned around because
Don’t stop

Don’t stop until I hear the ring

Spit sink I really think
That I might not see you again
Because waiting up is not worthwhile
Waiting for that
Promised call from you
That promised call from you
That promised call from you…

Spend my time at the store
That’s open twenty-four and
I bought,I bought
A lot of semi-permanent

Hair dyes and magazines
Burned eyes and gasoline ’cause
Don’t stop
Don’t stop
Don’t stop until I hear you ring

Linda asks…

What are the lyrics used in Afterlife by Avenged Sevenfold?

I heard that for their live sets, that some of the lyrics in Afterlife where changed to be in memory of the Rev. I was wondering what where the altered lyrics. I tried finding the live video that has them in it, on you tube and failed.
Thanks all for the help, but I’m not looking for the original song lyrics, the ones that are preformed live, in memory of the rev, are the ones I’m hunting for.

admin answers:

Like walking into a dream
So unlike what you’ve seen
So unsure but it seems
‘Cause we?ve been waiting for you

Fallen into this place
Just giving you a small taste
Of your afterlife here so stay
You’ll be back here soon anyway

I see a distant light
But girl, this can’t be right
Such a surreal place to see
So how did this come to be, arrived too early?

And when I think of all the places
I just don’t belong
I’ve come to grips with life
And realize this is going too far

I don’t belong here, we gotta move on, dear
Escape from this afterlife
?Cause this time I’m right to move on and on
Far away from here

A place of hope and no pain
Perfect skies with no rain
Can leave this place but refrain
‘Cause we’ve been waiting for you

Fallen into this place
Just giving you a small taste
Of your afterlife here so stay
You’ll be back here soon anyway

This peace on earth’s not right
(With my back against the wall)
No pain or sign of time
(I?m much too young to fall)

So out of place don’t wanna stay
I feel wrong and that’s my sign
I’ve made up my mind

Give me your hand
But realize I just wanna say goodbye
Please understand I have to leave
And carry on my own life

I don’t belong here, I gotta move on, dear
Escape from this afterlife
?Cause this time I’m right to move on and on
Far away from here

Got nothing against you
And surely I’ll miss you
This place full of peace and light
And I?d hope you might
Take me back inside when the time is right

Loved ones back home all crying
‘Cause they’re already missing me
I pray by the grace of God
That there’s somebody listening

Give me a chance to be that person I wanna be
(I am unbroken, I?m choking on this ecstasy)
Oh Lord, I’ll try so hard but You gotta let go of me
(Unbreak me, unchain me, I need another chance to live)

I don’t belong here, I gotta move on, dear
Escape from this afterlife
?Cause this time I’m right to move on and on
Far away from here

Got nothing against you
And surely I’ll miss you
This place full of peace and light
And I?d hope you might
Take me back inside when the time is right

George asks…

What are your first thoughts when you find out that a Christian male or female is good in the bed?

What if they waited a while to have sex with you, do you call them a hypocrite? What if they have sex with you soon into the relationship, do you still call them a hypocrite? Do you think Christians should be frigid logs while having sex?

admin answers:

It’s not knowing who is good in bed.
Look in the real world.
Decode this lyrics ” You’ll see ”
“Wonderful world”
“Eternal Flame”
It was Salman Rushdie who exposed the misery of the community living in misery with faulty sexual system.
At loss and blurred on why were they living in misery.
Trace it back to idol worshiping the dead Mummy without having any sexual system with hear-say from the Book of the Dead as casualty of the dead Mummy in time.

Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language

September 1, 2013
By

Mandy asks…

Is it sin to be deaf that I continuosly getting rejected by hearing girls?

I have been searching hearing girls these days for relationship but I often get rejected just because I am hearing impaired even though my job is stable and make decent salary. What actually girls want ? I am sick of getting rejected by hearing girls continuously. Man, it is so depressing :(

admin answers:

As for what girls want, it’s simple really: They want someone to listen to them. (Convenient. No?)

It’s sad but hearing people don’t understand what it’s like to deaf. They have sound and cannot fathom a world without it. But there are lots of hearing women who are interpreters or have deaf people in their family, and know sign language. There are also plenty who would just like to learn for the sake of knowledge.

Keep your hopes up. Wear a smile. Be friendly and sociable and surely a nice girl will find you interesting and charming regardless of being deaf.

I wish you the best of luck, may the Gods bless you.

Laura asks…

What are the effects of being socially isolated on brain development. Can it look like Aspberger’s syndrome?

One of the key characteristics of aspbergers syndrome is the inability to read nonverbal social cues. If a child is isolated for much of his/her life wouldn’t this also be they have a difficult time gauging how another person is feeling? Is so, would isolation alter their brain development and leave them permanently impaired? Sorry for the very specific question.

admin answers:

It wouldn’t permanently impair your ability to catch social cues, no. Social interaction is like a language, if you don’t practice for a while you become rusty. But it can be relearned.

Isolation from social activities will stunt your ability to communicate as fluently as others, but it’s not permanent as long as you expose yourself to social activities again.
