Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language

David asks…

I have hearing aids, can I still be a flight attendant?

I am looking into being a flight attendant once out of Highschool. I have hearing loss, but I wear hearing aids so I hear more than most normal people do. My hearing loss isn’t that severe. Will airlines hire someone with hearing loss? I am planning on taking sign language for the next three years, to be fluent. Will knowing sign language help my chances of getting hired?
Thanks!

admin answers:

Sign language would certainly come in handy if you were working a flight and their was a hearing impaired passenger who was fluent in sign language (not all are), but other than that it wouldn’t be of much use in the day to day job.

Whether or not your hearing loss would affect your eligibility to be hired depends on the policies of the particular airline, and if you could pass the physical requirements.

Since you are not yet graduated from HS, you should know that most airlines require you to be 21, with a solid work history and some customer service experience.

Mark asks…

How are Psychologists able to distinguish the differences between being a Schizoid and Asperger’s Syndrome?

After working with both, I will just share what I’ve acquired and I would like to know if the two disorders are commonly confused?

Similarities:
1. Social problems that include social isolation, major issues with approaching people, difficulties with social boundaries (and rules) and issues with holding a conversation. They have major struggles with forming peer relationships as well.
2. This is unnecessary, but people with both are more prone to Anxiety and Depression.
3. People with either often have the unique flat tones.
4. People with either often appear to be indifferent to others.
5. One unique thing to Asperger’s Syndrome that would generally make it distinguish the differences from other disorder is the inability to read facial expressions and language. People with Schizoid Personality Disorder have the same struggles as well.
6. People with both tend to work independently.
7. Limited speech patterns
8. Limited thought patterns
9. People with either tend to be somewhat indifferent to praise or criticism.
10. People with either hardly express jokes.
11. Attention problems (well, this isn’t exclusive for either disorder)

These are the only ways of distinguishing the symptoms? The symptoms aren’t even required however:
1. The motor coordination deficits in Asperger’s Syndrome kind of make it unique. However, this isn’t even required for a diagnosis.
2. The sensory issues in Asperger’s Syndrome, but these are far from required as well.

How do they distinguish the difference between the two disorders since the symptoms look to be similar? Do they have a way of measuring how the person socializes or something? I certainly don’t see a unique difference.

admin answers:

I’m not a qualified psychiatrist or psychologist. So, what makes me think I might know the answer. Well, I’m 68, which means I’ve been around a long time. Additionally, and without trying to prove it by boring you with chapter and verse, as my condition inclines me to do, I’m highly intelligent, probably autistic (high performing), very well educated and exceedingly versatile.

At age 15, following a very serious head injury, which occurred on premises of the local education authority for the county in which I was born and raised, I was examined by that authority’s principal educational psychologist, who diagnosed that I had Autistic Psychopathy, an IQ of over 200, and a holographic land use, transport, and socio-economic development model of the entire world inside my head, so he even got someone from the Hudson Institute in America to come and confirm it.

I used that model to the great advantage of my birth nation, and its neighbours and commonwealth until my physical and mental health broke down at age 38. I suffered acute retrograde, anterograde, psychogenic, and dissociative amnesias, due to the onset of hypothyroidism, and the diagnosis and remedial treatment were so delayed that it severely impaired my memory recovery. Consequently, I had a very severe nervous breakdown at age 49, for which I needed psychiatric attention, and was diagnosed as “probable autism spectrum disorder, most likely, asperger syndrome” and counselled accordingly, with resounding success, as it enabled me to recover virtually all of memory, including my holographic modelling tool, so the treatment was ended, as it was being paid for by my employer at the time. The process of memory recovery continued, but at age 55, resurrected suicide attempts from my infancy and childhood, and I attempted suicide again, though in a different and much less spectacular and hence noticeable way, which also did not succeed, so I continued living and working as before without anyone except myself knowing that I had tried to kill myself again. About three and a half years ago, I had another nervous breakdown, but the consultant psychiatrist / psychologist my employer commissioned to examine and treat me could find no indication that I was suffering with a mental disorder. I therefore sought a second opinion, which I paid for myself, from an internet-based psychiatrist / psychologist, who diagnosed that I might have schizoid schizoidal personality disorder. Consequently, I sought a further opinion, this time from the National Health Service via my General Family Practitioner, but that turned out to be totally inconclusive – I was told by my GP that the NHS could find nothing wrong with me, but the lady who had examined me had told her that she had not found anything wrong with me, however, the NHS had no-one sufficiently well-qualified to whether I have an autism spectrum disorder or asperger syndrome.

In all cases except for the Head Teachers of the Nursery School and the Primary School, and the Principal Educational Psychologist of the local education authority for the area where I was born and raised, all of whom were fully aware of my family history, and interviewed my parents, the specialist has said that it was not possible at the time of their diagnoses to state categorically what disorder I have, indeed, if I have any disorder at all, without corroborative evidence of my baby-hood, infancy, childhood and teenage memories.

So, I conclude that the only way of telling whether someone has asperger syndrome or schizoid or schizoidal personality disorder depends on corroborative evidence of baby-hood, infancy, childhood and teenage memories.

Michael asks…

What is the difference between subtitle and caption?

It is confusing to me. I thought the function that can show us what the TV says is capition but some say that it is subtitle. In my opinion, subtitle has to be translated in some other languages…Is that right? And the closed capition and just capition are different?

admin answers:

In your example, there isn’t any meaningful difference.
By convention, however, subtitles are the translations that would appear underneath frames in a movie.
Whereas the expression “closed-captioning”(for the hearing-impaired) is used to describe the ongoing translation of a TV broadcast.

To repeat, there’s no meaningful distinction, but by convention, the word subtitle is used in one context and the word captioning is used in the other.

In another context, printed matter for instance, there is a greater distinction.

A subtitle is an alternate, second title for an article or book.
A caption explains a picture or a cartoon. It usually appears below the graphic

Paul asks…

What does a heart with a lock or a key represent?

What do you think when you see a heart and there’s thousands of keys around that heart but inside that heart there’s a key in it, what exactly do you think that means when you see that?

admin answers:

It means that the person is an emotional person on the inside but shields it from the world.

Donald asks…

What Are The Chances Of Surviving A Heart Failure?

my uncle had suffered a heart failure, and he’s in the hospital fresh out of surgery. after this i went online to check out information of heart failures and such. and i have seen some yahoo answer users saying that heart failures = death. and they said that he was better off with a heart attack. im just curious. thanks

ps. happy holloween! 1 day late i know.

admin answers:

Hi James,

Heart failure (cardiac failure) just means that the heart is unable to pump enough blood to the organs of the body. It can be due to many diseases eg MI (heart attack), extremely high bp over a long time, valve disease (eg aortic stenosis, narrowing of the aortic valve), diphtheria, etc. Etc.

It depends how bad it is as to what will happen, and the cause. It can lead to death, but most patients live for several years on medication.

Hope this helps. For more info, IM.

Donna asks…

Do you believe that heart and teamwork can beat talent?

I do.

Look at the Golden State Warriors! I firmly believe that talent is nothing in any situation if you dont have the heart (the fire, like Rudy Ruettiger ) and teamwork. This applies to anything in life. You see this even in nature. Ants bring down larger, stronger insects with heart and teamwork.

I guess I just love the underdog.

Do you believe that heart and teamwork can beat talent?
GO WARRIORS!

admin answers:

I do. I think the chemistry that teamwork can bring will prove formidable because there is brotherhood. They will bleed from the same veins. The heart will be the fire…the engine that drives the body to be at its maximum and beyond. Now as long as talent is not too overwhelming….teamwork and heart will always prevail.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Pull The Trigger

October 29, 2013

Maria asks…

Can federal agents or state agency choose any gun of their choice?

Can federal agents choose any firearm to use in the field for example can they choose between a Glock and a Heckler and Koch USP or a Sigarms?…or are they stuck with what the agency give them?

admin answers:

Most departments will specify both the make and model. This in many ways has to do with limiting liability. The reason that guns like the Glock are popular with departments is that it requires a fair amount of pressure on the trigger to fire the gun. That is because these guns are trigger cocked (Double Action Only). Guns such as the 1911A1 have light trigger pulls from the single action position and so are more easily discharged under stress. This makes for more accidental discharges, which leads to more lawsuits. The ability to shoot the gun accurately is less important to the departments than the ability to reduce lawsuits.

Paul asks…

Can a Demon cause a Christian to sin, or do they just plant the idea and provide the temptation?

Can a Demon make a Christian “pull the trigger” in a situation, or does the Demon have to just mess up their head a bit?

admin answers:

According to scientific research the sub-conscious brain has a biggest impact on behavior and thinking than previously thought. They demonstrated how it was possible to know via brain scans what action or selection would be chosen before the person did it.

The test was rudimentary but it shows that the mind is still not properly understood. As far as religion goes most “evil” is just the persons own deepest avarice manifesting itself. The “devils” have little to do but steer him on the track.

Laura asks…

What are the pros and cons of electric and gas powered paintball guns? Which do you recommend?

Hey there. I am really trying to choose wisely on what kind of paintball gun I am going to buy. I just wanted to know which one is better in quality and performance. Do you know of any good paintball sites where I can buy any pb markers and gear? Thank you.

admin answers:

Ok let me help. You have a lot of things to sort out here.

All paintball gear runs off of some type of propellant (air). The most common is CO2. There is also HPA which is compressed air. It is cleaner and is needed on higher level guns.

The electronic guns that you’re seeing still need one of these air systems. The electronic part of it is the trigger. Instead of a mechanical trigger where you physically pull the trigger which releases the hammer, in an electric marker you pull the trigger which works a solenoid or pneumatics…no matter what you have you still need some type of air.

To get started I would recommend to you maybe a Tippmann 98 Custom or a Spyder Pilot ACS. Both are solid markers that are pretty easy to use and work on and clean. They’re pretty solid markers.

As far as online purchasing….I would suggest

http://discountpaintballgear.actvil.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/BrowseCatalog-Start?CategoryName=paintball

http://www.firstcallpaintball.com/pages-main/index.html

Before you go buying stuff however, might I suggest a couple other websites to you so you can get some info about what it is that you’re buying.

Http://www.pbreview.com/ before you buy anything check it out here first and see what other players are saying about it

http://www.warpig.com/ LOTS of info here. Huge knowledge base about most everything.

I hope this helps a little bit. Good luck.

admin answers:

[Selena Gomez - Verse 1]
It’s the boy you never told I like you
It’s the girl you let get away
It’s the one you saw that day on the train
But you freeked out and walked away
It’s the plane you wanna catch to Vegas
Things you swear you’ll do before you die
It’s the city of love that waits for you
But you’re too damn scared to fly

[Chorus]
Hit the lights, let the music move you
Lose yourself tonight, come alive
Let the moment take you, lose control tonight
Hit the lights, let the music move you
Lose yourself tonight, come alive
Let the moment take you, lose control tonight

[Selena Gomez - Verse 2]
It’s the time that you totally screwed up
Still you’re trying get it out your brain
It’s the fight you had when you didn’t make up
It’s the past that you’re dying to change
It’s all the money the you’re saving
While the good life passes by
It’s all the dreams that never came true
’cause you’re too damn scared to try

Lose yourself tonight

So let’s go go go go
All the way, yeah let’s go go go
Night and day, from the floor to the rafters
People raise your glasses
We could dance forever

Let the moment take you, lose control tonight
Hit the lights, let the music move you
Lose yourself tonight, come alive
Let the moment take you, lose control tonight

Sandy asks…

What is this song called with the lyrics of can you hear my heart beat beating faster? its kinda tenchno?

The lyrics are something like “can you hear my heart beat beating faster” … it has a lot of “beep”s in it… a little help here? but its not everytime we touch by cascada. its sorta of techno-y.

admin answers:

The name of the song is “Gravity” by the UK band Embrace. Please see the following information from Wikipedia (link is in Source) after the lyrics:

Embrace (UK) – Gravity Lyrics

Honey,
It’s been a long time coming,
And I can’t stop now
Such a long time running,
And I can’t stop now
Do you hear my heart beating?
Can you hear that sound?
’cause i can’t help thinking
And I don’t look down

And then I looked up at the sun
And I could see
Oh, the way that gravity turns for you and me
And then I looked up at the sky
And saw the sun
And the way that gravity pulls on everyone
On everyone

Baby,
It’s been a long time waiting,
Such a long, long time
And I can’t stop smiling,
No I can’t stop now
Do you hear my heart beating?
And can you hear that sound?
’cause I can’t help crying
And I won’t look down

And then I looked up at the sun
And I could see
Oh, the way that gravity turns on you and me
And then I looked up at the sun
And saw the sky
And the way that gravity pulls on you and I
On you and I

Can you hear my heart beating
Do you hear that sound
’cause I cant help crying
And I wont look down

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

“Gravity” is the lead single from Out of Nothing, the fourth album by British band Embrace. Originally written by Chris Martin, the song was first performed live by Coldplay in 2002. Ultimately, Martin gave the song to Embrace. “Gravity” peaked at #7 on the UK Singles Chart. It was released on CD format and red 7″ vinyl. It later became the theme song to the TV show Mike Bassett: Manager, starring Ricky Tomlinson.

The b-side “Wasted” started off as “Logical Love Song” and was originally conceived during the Drawn from Memory sessions.

“Gravity” was re-recorded by Coldplay in late 2005 and is included as a b-side on their single “Talk”.

The songs “Too Many Times”, “The Shot’s Still Ringing”, and “Waterfall” are featured on the b-sides compilation Dry Kids: B-Sides 1997-2005.

Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language Is Known As

Paul asks…

Can i be allowed to teach even if im hearing impaired?

Im a preschool teacher with a master’s degree, but also with profound hearing impairment in both ears. What are my chances of getting a job in the US or Canada as a teacher? Will my impairment affect my chances?
Im a preschool teacher with a master’s degree, but also with profound hearing impairment in both ears. What are my chances of getting a job in the US or Canada as a teacher? Will my impairment affect my chances? I do wear hearing aids but of course, they don’t work quite as well as normal hearing.

admin answers:

Absolutely! You can teach the hearing impared! In all honesty your “impairment” might actually make you more eligable for classes dealing with the hearing impaired. Do you know sign language? That’s a plus! And you’d also be able to understand, more than say me, on what it’s like being hearing impaired… That right there speaks loads, no pun intended ;-) . Students always respect most the teachers who’ve shared similar life experiences and gotten through them. You’d be perfect!

Helen asks…

How do you feel about people with disabilities? Do you think they need to have more rights?

I am hearing-impaired and I am doing this project for my American Sign Language Club. It would really help them to know of what the general population thinks.

admin answers:

I think that if we continue to give them more and more special rights, we are more separating them from everyday society and I feel that is kind of counter-productive. It ends up segregating them more. They should be able to live in and enjoy the good and bad of society like everyone else…or as close as they can get.
I hope this helps. :)

Robert asks…

what is it called when a person constantly shakes?

i have a kind of condition that causes me to constantly shake.. i don’t know what its called.

admin answers:

Saint Vitus Dance: WHAT: Chorea. Chorea (Sydenham’s): a neurological disorder characterized by purposeless, rapid, involuntary movements, emotional lability, and muscular weakness. WHY: Sydenham’s chorea is seen in rheumatic fever. The chorea may be associated with other rheumatic manifestations or it may present as the sole expression of rheumatic fever. HOW: Typically, the onset of chorea is gradual, with irritability, uncooperativeness, fits of anger, crying, and inappropriate behavior present before the choreiform movements are noted. The movements are rapid and jerky, unlike the slower, rhythmic motion seen in athetosis. Characteristically, on raising his arms above the head, the patient turns the arms so as to oppose the backs of the hands. The patient is unable to sustain a tetanic muscular contraction. On squeezing an examiner’s hand the patient can only provide a repetitive, spasmodic grip which is overly pronated and is similar to the motion of milking a cow (milk-maid’s grip)

Or Parkinsons disease.
Parkinson’s disease (also known as Parkinson disease or PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer’s motor skills, speech, and other functions.[1]

Parkinson’s disease belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders. It is characterized by muscle rigidity, tremor, a slowing of physical movement (bradykinesia) and a loss of physical movement (akinesia) in extreme cases. The primary symptoms are the results of decreased stimulation of the motor cortex by the basal ganglia, normally caused by the insufficient formation and action of dopamine, which is produced in the dopaminergic neurons of the brain. Secondary symptoms may include high level cognitive dysfunction and subtle language problems. PD is both chronic and progressive.
