Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

October 21, 2013

Steven asks…

Mormons, why is it no member of the First Presidency went on a mission?

Monson choose to go to college at 19 instead, and neither Eyring or Uchtdorf chose a mission either. Young men today are told that it is necessary for all of them. Why was that different for all the leaders at age 19?

admin answers:

President Monson joined the Navy because he was going to be drafted into the war, he didn’t have the opportunity.

When Elder Eyring was of age to serve a mission, the amount of missionaries was limited because of the Korean war and he went into the airforce. But while stationed he was called as a district missionary while stationed in New Mexico and he was able to serve for two years.

I don’t know why Elder Uchtdorf didn’t serve a mission but I would bet it would have something to do with the family being twice impoverished refugees of WWII, the Iron Curtain, the Cold War, the constant threat of Russian invasion and his being in the Air force.

Back then you also didn’t submit papers like you do today. The call for every worthy young man to serve a mission came from President Hinckley. In Monson’s time if you were called it was at the discretion of your bishop to select you call you into his office and discuss it. Similarly in Brigham Young’s day if you were called on a mission you found out in general conference.

Currently they are serving missions as apostles, special witnesses of Christ in all the world.

Thanks

William asks…

In mass effect 1, Is romance dependent on the ones I take in missions or dependent on dialogue only?

If I want to have a relation with ashley, do I have to take her with me on missions or does the romance and story line depend on the dialogue, rather than who comes with me on missions, or choosing my squad mission members significant for the story line?
The same goes for the story line of all my team members, does their storyline depend on taking them on missions, or I chose the squad based on the best combination for the mission without caring about the storyline?

admin answers:

Romance along with other dialoge becomes available as you progress through the main plot. But these dialog options being available have nothing to do with who goes with you in teams, with some exceptions. Choose your team mates as needed depending on what you need.

Talk to everyone after finishing a mission in the main story to get more dialog options. At some point though you will have to choose between taking Kaiden or Ash on a mission (while helping the salarians) and your choice at the end of the mission has a direct affect on the romance with Ashley.

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

October 20, 2013

Ruth asks…

What should be the title of this summary?

Over the past two weeks, all of Asia watched as China caused problems for Japan and India. China, once officially committed to rising peacefully in cooperation with its neighbours, now seems determined to show its neighbours that it has growing military and economic interests that other countries ignore at their peril. China’s aggressive behaviour represents a sea change in longstanding Chinese policy. In some ways, the change in attitude is an extension of China’s enduring interest in protecting its sovereign rights. The global economic crises has left China in a far stronger international position than many of its neighbours or the U.S. The Chinese have become more willing to make public demands from other countries. The biggest reason for the change in Chinese behaviour is the tension around the leadership changes in Beijing, planned for 2012, when Hu Jintao is expected to step down. The new leaders may be less able than in the past to control a defence establishment now pushing for its own interests that aren’t always consistent with China’s broader diplomatic goals. However, all of this could cost Beijing a decade’s worth of accumulated good will, and many Asian nations are making deals with each other to create a balance against China.

Nancy asks…

Name a Disney Character who portrays loyalty?

Besides Simba, who else is a character that portrays loyalty, braveness, and courageous. Thanks in advance!

admin answers:

Pinocchio. While he had been led astray twice by Foulfellow and Gideon, he intended to find his way back home to his father. When he learned that his father was in mortal peril (swallowed by the whale), instead of mourning, he walked right into the proverbial lion’s den (or perhaps, whale’s sea?), gets swallowed by the whale, and finds a way to help them escape.

Tiana. She was loyal to her family, especially her father. Even after he died, she stayed true to his dreams of running his own restaurant (now it would be her own). After the mishap with Prince Naveen, and being turned into a frog, she faces down alligators, frog hunters, and a voodoo priest to obtain her goal.

Merida. She was also loyal to her family, but she had her own rules, and blazed her own trail. When she was set to choose a suitor, she stood up to both of her parents, especially her mother. Even when she caused her mother to be turned into a bear, she stayed by her mother’s side, helping her become human again. She also stood up to adversity, stating that she should be free to choose who she loves, and not let other choose for her. All the suitors were in agreement with her.

It’s funny you mentioned Simba. His daughter Kiana and the lion Kovu were also loyal and brave. While they were loyal to their families, they became loyal to each other, and also stood up to their parents, thus combining the two prides into one. Many would say that the second Lion King movie mirrors “Romeo and Juliet”, with one tiny difference: The lovers live in the end.

Ken asks…

Lyrics to Portal credits

Spoilers, read at own risk!!!

This was a triumph
I’m making a note here
HUGE SUCCESS
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction
Aperture Science

we do what we must because we can
for the good of all of us except for the ones who are dead
but there’s no sense crying over every mistake
you just keep on trying until you run out of cake
and the science gets done and you make a neat gun
for the people who are still alive

I’m not even angry
I’m being so sincere right now
even though you broke my heart and killed me
and torn into pieces
and threw every piece into a fire
as they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a wonderful line
and we’re out of beta, we’re releasing on time
so I’m glad I got burned
Think of all the things we learned for the people that are still alive

go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
maybe you’ll find someone else to help you
maybe black mesa
that was a joke, haha, fat chance
anyway this cake is great, it’s so delicious and moist
look at me still talking, when there’s science to do
when I look out there it makes me glad I’m not you
I’ve experiments to run, there is research to be done
on the people who are still alive

and believe me I am still alive
I’m doing science and I’m still alive
I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive
While you are dying I’ll be still alive
and when you’re dead I’ll be still alive
STILL ALIVE, still alive

Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

October 18, 2013
By

Helen asks…

When should you go to the doctors for tonsillitis?

Another health related question from me, ha. (I have a crap immune system).

Today is Sunday. On Thursday I started to get a bad throat but it was gone after about half an hour. On Friday in the afternoon it started to feel a bit sore, like the sort of bad throats you get with a cold but then at night time it started to hurt. Yesterday it was even worse and today it is worse.

My throat feels a lot bigger than it should do. I tried looking in the mirror this morning to see whether I had any more spots on my tonsils because when I looked yesterday I could see one but I couldn’t open my mouth wide enough to see without coughing.

I have hardly drunk in the last two days even though I am thirsty because I can feel the spots when I swallow etc. and it feels disgusting, it makes me want to be sick. I have a bad neck and a headache. It’s interrupting my sleep and I haven’t eaten much since Thursday. I don’t know what my temperature is because we don’t own a thermometer and I couldn’t find my sisters yesterday but my face is burning even though I’m cold. I have taken paracetamol.

I’m still going to try and go to college tomorrow because I don’t want to miss any more days. I know I shouldn’t go in but I have a bad attendance and need to get work done which I can’t do at home.

When do you think someone should go to the doctors with tonsillitis? I read on the NHS website if it doesn’t get better after three or four days, tomorrow will be the fourth day I have had it. Is this true? On the website it said you should go if you have a weakened immune system too, I haven’t gone a week without there being something wrong since the start of February (Since then I have had a cold, a bad cough for two weeks, feeling sick, stomach aches etc).

admin answers:

“When do you think someone should go to the doctors with tonsillitis?” — I don’t think you should go to any doctors who have tonsillitis. They’re sick! Just joking. See your doctor as soon as you’re able. If you can get in on Monday, so much the better for you. Try sipping icy cold water all day long. This can numb your throat and help reduce your fever.

Are you certain your immune system is impaired? When was the last time you were drawn for IgGs and IgMs? Is it possible that your diet and lifestyle have something to do with it?

A burning face can indicate surface temperature but it’s an unreliable indicator of core temperature, the one that counts. However, I’d be surprised if you didn’t have a fever. I hope you get well soon, okay?

John asks…

What foods have been proven to help build strong immune systems?

admin answers:

Organic 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 , and acai.) 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, and white teas are excellent drink choices to boost your immune system. The best health drink is MonaVie juice.

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.

If interested, here are some foods to avoid.

Sugar
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.

Michael asks…

How do I best clean my fish tank?

I have a single goldfish and a few baby snails. I want to take the tank down and replace the rocks and scrub the glass clean (it’s been a while since it has had a really good cleaning). There are a few of those fake plastic plants and they have a black goo substance on them. I have tried scrubbing with hot water but it hasn’t helped. I also have algea on the side of the glass. My question is this, what if any, cleaning agents can I use that will help with the gunk and goo but not harm the fish?
I am afraid to get another fish, even a sucker fish, my current fish is nuts and kills other fish.

admin answers:

It’s really not a good idea to remove and replace all the water in a tank. You will destroy the good bacteria that’s growing in the tank and have a mini cycle. Also, removing the fish from the tank and then replacing them is stressful for them and stressing fish impairs their immune system and leaves openings for disease. It’s much better to do more frequent, smaller water changes, like 20-25% once a week (for newer tanks) or once a month (for established, cycled tanks) and vacuum the gravel with a gravel siphon or a turkey baster if your tank is small.

However, if you are really disturbed by the condition of your fake plants and ornaments, you can take them out and scrub them with a mild solution of 10% bleach and water. If you have problems with hard water stains (these can make other things stick more) you can also use vinegar to scrub them. Just rinse them well with conditioned water before putting them back into the tank. I’d suggest you get a good algae scrubber from a pet store or your local fish store to scrub off the algae on the inside of the tank. Then just let it settle and siphon it up off the bottom.

Oh, and please don’t listen to Kaori and get an Otocinclus catfish, they are very unsuitable to keep with goldfish! Not only are they warm water fish while goldfish are cold water fish, but they have been known to suck the slime coat from the sides of goldfish!

Your Questions About For Those Who Have Heart

Sharon asks…

Why has Heart Disease has been the number one killer in the US for decades, without decrease?

Even though we know that Heart Disease has been the number one killer in the US for decades, how come we have not made more headway in decreasing the rates?

admin answers:

Heart Disease will always remain a large killer of American people most likely.

People need to realize that certain kinds of heart disease have few or no controllable factors.

However, changes in lifestyle habits especially with movement and eating can potentially reduce not only heart disease but many other significant diseases.

This is not easy to do though. Changing the way you have lived for many, many years is very hard to do.

Also- most things go undetected for a long time with the heart, sometimes (but unfortunately) leading to death.

They usually are detected at heart attack and stroke time, which leads to death early or heart failure which may not be reversible. Then, they could die on the transplant list.

Many, many things that have overcomplexity at this point in time.

Laura asks…

What’s the difference between heart disease & heart failure in dogs?

My Cavalier has heart disease (I think it is MVD). She has been on tablets for several months for it. On the packet it says that they are for the treatment of heart failure in dogs. I used to think that heart failure was when the heart just stopped working and the dog died, but that is obviously not the case. What does heart failure actually mean? Thanks xx

admin answers:

Http://www.cavalierhealth.org/mitral_valve_disease.htm
This has lots of info.
Heart disease in cavaliers means the mitral valve(and occasionally the tricuspid valve)is diseased and leaking.Heart failure means the disease has progressed till the heart doesn’t pump efficiently and the fluid builds up in the lungs,also known as chf.
The most common drugs for mvd are ace inhibitors.enalapril and benazapril,with lasix added when failure occurs and pimobendan added as they hit later stages of the disease.
Try and find a vet experienced in heart disease.

Charles 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:

There is only one to unlock and recieve the compassion emanating from my heart. Thousands try, you,key, are the one.
