Lizzie asks…

What is taking all of the oil out of the earth doing to our earth???

admin answers:

Nothing that the earth hasn’t been doing without us for millions of years. It’s called the carbon cycle.

Most of the oil ever formed on Earth has already been released back to the atmosphere by plate tectonics. Billions of barrels of oil have been formed and released by natural processes, often very gradually, but sometimes catastrophically. Evidence of this can be seen all over the world. In terms of ocean oil spills alone, about 63 MILLION gallons of oil naturally seep to the oceans surface each year. TEN THOUSAND gallons a day seep up along the coast of Santa Barbara in California from natural seeps. Many oil seeps are not under the ocean, so that figure does not include surface seeps on land, which are considerable. I drive past a natural surface oil seep regularly that seeps about 50 gallons a day. Most of this oil evaporates and is broken down in the atmosphere. Other seeps contain microbes that digest the oil and naturally convert it to carbon dioxide and some methane.

Here is an example of natural oil seeps in California:

http://geomaps.wr.usgs.gov/seeps/

There is even a significant amount over time of natural gas and oil that actually migrates naturally upwards through the earth to the surface. This can and is measured by oil companies who are looking for places to drill. Chances are, if you live above an oil or gas field, there are very small but measurable amounts of oil and gas in the atmosphere around you that have seeped naturally to the surface.

The issue that you are alluding to is that by removing oil very rapidly over the last 150 years, we have created an excess of carbon in the earth’s atmosphere that may change our climate. Keep in mind that during many periods in the ancient past, long before man had evolved, there were periods of higher carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere than today. Life did thrive on the planet during these periods, it just wasn’t us. The earth, and its life forms adapted and evolved. The threat today is if WE can evolve quickly enough to survive the changes we may be causing. Obviously, if we cause a rapid enough change that affects sea level and climate, most of our cities will be in peril and the devices of human civilization are likely to fail. The Earth, however, is likely to continue to exist and change as it has for billions of years.

What are 5 other famous shipping disasters apart from the Titanic?

^^Thanks

admin answers:

The Sultana – On April 27, 1865, the steamboat Sultana, some seven miles north of Memphis, Tennessee, carrying 2,300 just-released Union prisoners of war, plus crew and civilian passengers, exploded and sank. Some 1,700 people died.

The Eastland – Early on the morning of Saturday, July 24, 1915, with a light rain falling and the air filled with much anticipation and excitement, thousands were gathering along the Chicago River for Western Electric’s fifth annual employee picnic. In fact, over 7,000 tickets had been purchased.

The S.S. Eastland, known as the “speed queen of the Great Lakes,” was part of a fleet of five excursion boats assigned to take Western Electric employees, their families and friends across Lake Michigan to Michigan City, Indiana, for the day’s festivities.

But the Eastland, docked at the Clark Street Bridge, never left the Chicago River. It instead rolled into the river at the wharf’s edge with over 2,500 passengers, including crew members, on board. Over 800 people lost their lives, including 22 entire families.

The USS Indianapolis – There are few tragedies at sea that capture one’s imagination and fear more than the nightmare which took place under the glow of the moon, on a hot and steamy summer’s night, just after midnight on July 30, 1945. This tragedy took the lives of 883 souls. Only 316 survived to tell of the horrors.

The Mary Celeste – On December 5, 1872 the Mary Celeste was found adrift with all soles on board missing and no signs of violence. This one incident among many was made famous by being the subject of a book authored by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle(pre-Sherlock Holmes).

The Edmund Fitzgerald – On November 10, 1975 the Fitzgerald left Superior, Wisconsin carrying 26,000 tons of iron ore pellets, bound for Detroit. Though the day was bright, in her path lay a terrible storm with 60 MPH winds and waves in excess of 15 feet. As the storm built, her experienced Captain Ernest McSorley bore north across Lake Superior, seeking the relative shelter of the Canadian shore and Whitefish Bay.

Luck was not with the ship or the crew. The radar system and its backup failed. The storm took out the power to Whitefish Point’s light and radio beacon. Though the light was brought back on line, the radio beacon was not. The Arthur M. Anderson, another ship within 10 miles of the Fitzgerald, received reports that the ship was listing to the starboard and of other structural damages to the vessel. At 7:10 PM, Captain McSorley delivered what was to be his final message:
“We’re holding our own.”
The Arthur M. Anderson lost the Fitzgerald’s image on its radar screensat 7:25 PM. The ship and crew of 29 men, sank to the bottom of Lake Superior.

It was made famous by a song in remembrance of the ship by Gordon Lightfoot:

When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin’.
Fellas, it’s too rough to feed ya.
At Seven P.M. A main hatchway caved in, he said
Fellas, it’s been good t’know ya
The captain wired in he had water comin’ in
And the good ship and crew was in peril.
And later that night when his lights went outta sight
Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Andrea Doria, Oceanos, and Achille Laurel are some famous sea disasters.

James asks…

Spiritually, do you ever feel like Sisyphus?Like you are pushing that rock up the hill until it rolls over you?

Try try try again seems futile can anyone give me scripture verses referencing triumph over adversity?

admin answers:

Personally, I feel more like the rock. I’m being shoved and pushed, and every time I fall down the hill, little pieces are being chipped away.

And that’s how it’s supposed to be. Every trial refines us. Every hardship makes us stronger. We may not WANT to be stronger, of course, but isn’t that the goal of this life?

Someone else already gave you a scripture that fit what you were looking for. However, if I may add a few:

2 Ne. 2:11

11 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so…righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad…
12 Wherefore, it must needs have been created for a thing of naught; wherefore there would have been no purpose in the end of its creation. Wherefore, this thing must needs destroy the wisdom of God and his eternal purposes, and also the power and the mercy, and the justice of God.

2 Ne. 2:22-25
22 And now , behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were created, and they must have remained forever, and had no end.
23 And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin.
24 But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things.
25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.

And there’s nothing more comforting then the words given to Joseph Smith in Liberty Jail.

D&C 121: 7-9:
7. My son, peace be unto they soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment;
8 And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all they foes.
9 They friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail the again with warm hearts and friendly hands.

D&C 122: 5-7
5If thou are called to pass through tribulation; if thou art in perils among false brethren; if thou art in perils among robbers; if thou art in perils by land or by sea;
6 If thou art accused with all manner of false accusations; if thine enemies fall upon thee…
7 And if thou shoulds be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep…and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.
8 The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than He?
9 Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what they can do, for Go shall be with thee forever and ever.

You may feel that your trials aren’t doing anything for you, but you’re not God. As an imperfect, limited human, you can’t see beyond your pain and your exhaustion. God, though, sees the big picture. He knows what you’re gaining from each trial, even if you don’t. He knows what you stand to lose if you don’t go through this. Have patience and trust in Him. Whether you’re Sisyphus or the rock, He’s still beside you, watching over you.

Helen asks…

Does God hide himself because humanity has evolved to be superior to him?

Especially morally and ethically?

admin answers:

God is not hiding himself. Man has rebelled against God’s rulership. Man is still rebelling in all their forms of ism’s that don’t work. God is allowing the rebellion to continue in a hands-off-policy to demonstrate that no form of human self governance can achieve good. If he helps mankind with all their perils, then he would be intervening. That would make human rule look good. He will not help the rebellion of man look good by helping with hurricanes, earthquakes, pestilences. Etc. . .

This is what he will do:

(Proverbs 2:22) . . .As regards the wicked, they will be cut off from the very earth; and as for the treacherous, they will be torn away from it.

(Proverbs 2:21) . . .For the upright are the ones that will reside in the earth, and the blameless are the ones that will be left over in it.

(Revelation 11:17-18) . . .“We thank you, Jehovah God, the Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun ruling as king. 18 But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give [their] reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth [like the greedy capitalists].”

When god begins to show his face, just hope you have been a decent person because there will be an accounting:

(Jeremiah 25:31-33) 31 “‘A noise will certainly come clear to the farthest part of the earth, for there is a controversy that Jehovah has with the nations. He must personally put himself in judgment with all flesh. As regards the wicked ones, he must give them to the sword,’ is the utterance of Jehovah. 32 “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘Look! A calamity is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest itself will be roused up from the remotest parts of the earth. 33 And those slain by Jehovah will certainly come to be in that day from one end of the earth clear to the other end of the earth. They will not be bewailed, neither will they be gathered up or be buried. As manure on the surface of the ground they will become.’

Then this is the kind of life decent people will be able to enjoy forever on earth:

(Isaiah 11:6-9) . . .And the wolf will actually reside for a while with the male lamb, and with the kid the leopard itself will lie down, and the calf and the maned young lion and the well-fed animal all together; and a mere little boy will be leader over them. 7 And the cow and the bear themselves will feed; together their young ones will lie down. And even the lion will eat straw just like the bull. 8 And the sucking child will certainly play upon the hole of the cobra; and upon the light aperture of a poisonous snake will a weaned child actually put his own hand. 9 They will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.

(Revelation 21:3-4) 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things [human rule] have passed away.”

Ruth asks…

What are the differences between Mermaids, Sirens and Nyads?

I was just wondering what the main differences between those three are because apart from mermaids having tails they all sorta run into one

admin answers:

**Sirens**

The Argonauts escaped them because when he heard their song, Orpheus immediately realized the peril they were in. He took out his lyre and sang a song so clear and ringing that it drowned the sound of those lovely fatal voices. When on another journey the Odysseus’ ship passed the Sirens, had the sailors stuff their ears with wax. He had himself tied to the mast for he wanted to hear their beautiful voices. The Sirens sang when they approached, their words even more enticing than the melody. They would give knowledge to every man who came to them, they said, ripe wisdom and a quickening of the spirit. Odysseys’ heart ran with longing but the ropes held him and the ship quickly sailed to safer waters (Odyssey XII, 39).

Homer mentions only two sirens, but later authors mention three or four. They were regarded as the daughters of Phorcys, or the storm god Achelous and either Melpone, Sterope, or Terpsichore. Libanius on the other hand relates that they were born of the blood of Achelous when he was wounded by Heracles.

According to Ovid, they were nymphs and the play-mates of Persephone. They were present when she was abducted and, because they did not interfere, Demeter changed them into birds with female faces (Ovid V, 551).

**Mermaid**

A marine creature with the head and upper body of a beautiful young maiden and with the lower body of a fish. She can be found in seas and lakes, or lying on a rock and combing her hair with one hand while holding a mirror in the other. Mermaids sometimes foretell the future and are often accompanied by seals.

According to myth, they lure sailors by singing and with lovely music. They live in a kingdom on the bottom of the sea, and it is here they take their prisoners to. From this story, the fear amongst the sailor grew and they thought that seeing a mermaid would cause bad luck: it could predict death by drowning.

The belief in mermaids is not limited to a few countries, but there are tales from all over the world (in India, for instance, there are the Apsara, beautiful water nymphs). However, most of those tales were told by sailors who “saw” them on their long journeys. The idea of mermaids and mermen, the male equivalent, could be based on creatures from Greek and Babylonian mythology: Sirens and Tritons of the Greeks, and the fish gods, who were half human and half fish, from the Babylonians.

**Naiads**

The Naiads were nymphs of bodies of fresh water and were one of the three main classes of water nymphs – the others being the Nereids (nymphs of the Mediterranean Sea) and the Oceanids (nymphs of the oceans). The Naiads presided over rivers, streams, brooks, springs, fountains, lakes, ponds, wells, and marshes. They were divided into various subclasses: Crinaeae (fountains), Pegaeae (springs), Eleionomae (marshes), Potameides (rivers), and Limnades or Limnatides (lakes). Roman sources even assigned custody of the rivers of Hades to Naiads classified as Nymphae Infernae Paludis or the Avernales.

Naiads

The Naiad was intimately connected to her body of water and her very existence seems to have depended on it. If a stream dried up, its Naiad expired. The waters over which Naiads presided were thought to be endowed with inspirational, medicinal, or prophetic powers. Thus the Naiads were frequently worshipped by the ancient Greeks in association with divinities of fertility and growth.

The genealogy of the Naiads varies according to geographic region and literary source. Naiads were either daughters of Zeus, daughters of various river gods, or simply part of the vast family of the Titan Oceanus. Like all the nymphs, the Naiads were in many ways female sex symbols of the ancient world and played the part of both the seduced and the seducer. Zeus in particular seems to have enjoyed the favors of countless Naiads and the other gods do not seem to have lagged far behind. The Naiads fell in love with and actively pursued mortals as well. Classical literature abounds with the stories of their love affairs with gods and men and with the tales of their resulting children.

Stories of the Naiads could take the form of cautionary tales with unhappy endings. The Naiad, Nomia, fell in love with a handsome shepherd named Daphnis and could not do enough for him. He repaid her love with unfaithfulness and she repaid his inconstancy by blinding him. The Naiads of a spring in Bithynia took a liking to Hylas (companion of Heracles) and lured him into their waters. The cautionary element is uncertain here. The fate of Hylas could have been either an abrupt death by drowning or everlasting sexual bliss.

Other stories of the Naiads were explanations of the origins of immortals and mortals. The sun god Helios mated with the Naiad Aegle (renowned as the most beautiful of the Naiads) to produce the Charites. Melite, a Naiad of the Aegaeus River in Corcyra, had a liaison with Heracles and became the mother of Hyllus. Naiads we

What can my grandfather take for a sinus head ache, when he takes medication for parkinsons?

Please help.
My grandfather is having a lot of trouble. He went to the drug store to get over the counter medication since it is 11 pm here. But when we got home we relized he cannot take it. Since he is on medication for his parkinsons. I need to know what medication he can take that will not have any negative side effects with his current medication. Please help. Thanks

admin answers:

Wow that can be an unpleasant surprise but this is a problem. I share that issue when I go grocery shopping, when shopping for OTCs for my husband.. One does have to be aware of drug interactions for PD

Not all Parkinson’s disease medications are the same so to determine the best answer to your question we would need to know if your grandfather was taking a dopaminergic, an MAO inhibitor, a dopamine agonist, a dopamine antagonist, a COMT inhibitor or an anticholeringeric.

That said, if your Grandfather is taking a drug such as Selegiline- eldepryl (MAO-B inhibitors) he cannot take anything with pseudoephedrine in it – and that is a common ingredient.

Http://www.healthcaresouth.com/pages/askthedoctor/sinus.htm

He can use a saline nasal solution although I don’t find those that effective. Another thing to consider is a vaporizer – Eucalyptus is an effective additive to assist breathing. It can be used alone or with camphor and menthol. Being able to breathe easily is often a problem which impairs sleep for PD patients. There are also eucalyptus room sprays which can be used.

Another vaporizer additive would be vinegar. Despite to salad aroma, this is an excellent natural aid to addressing symptoms and causing the sinuses to drain:

http://www.homeremediesweb.com/apple_cider_vinegar_health_benefits.php

You are correct, he cannot take just anything so if in doubt, pick out a handful of medications and take them to the pharmacy and ask them to look up the contraindications. You must already have the list of everything your Grandfather is currently taking. It’s good to keep this list updated because sometimes there will be supplements which won’t appear on a prescription list and sometimes there are prescriptions for other conditions which might not be on the PD list.

In the future, whenever your Grandfather is considering an OTC (over-the-counter medication) he should take it to the pharmacy counter for review. Scroll down the next link for a sample of possible drug interactions under the heading: What other drugs will affect carbidopa, entacapone, and levodopa?

Http://www.emedicinehealth.com/drug-carbidopa_entacapone_and_levodopa/article_em.htm

The medicine info for the product you are considering should indicate if there is a contraindication with an ingredient. But often there is no complete list on the packaging. Which is why it needs to be pulled up online – don’t expect that the pharmacist will know it all off the top of the head.

You grandfather should also consider some high quality anti-oxidants as well as Vitamin D3 for both the Parkinson’s and to assist in strengthening his immune system.

A nice cup of green or black tea with honey will also soothe his throat as well as providing antioxidants with the health benefits of honey. Just one thing about honey – you should always buy local honey if you are looking for health benefits. You can read about it below:

http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/health-benefits-of-organic-locally-grown-raw-honey/

There are also some acupressure points that can help relieve blocked sinuses I like the ones at the side of the bridge of the nose and the one just between the upper lip and below the nose. There are also forehead points and a good one on either side of the cervical spine at the back of the head.

Http://www.ehow.com/how_2090862_use-acupressure-points-sinus-relief.html

The next links are to natural sinus remedies and sinus massage techniques:

http://www.chinese-holistic-health-exercises.com/natural-sinus-remedies.html

If used in combination these points can be very effective:

It is wonderful that you are involved with your Grandfather’s care. I hope you will continue to be informed about his condition.

Betty asks…

Why does my throat always burn when I eat bananas?

I used to be able to eat bananas with no problem.

Then, I went for a while without eating them.

Now, my nutritionist says I need to eat more of them because I’ve been getting cramps lately during workouts.

However, once I tried to start eating them, my throat burns really badly :/

could I have developed an allergy or something?

P.S. – also, what other natural foods would be high in potassium?

admin answers:

Allergy,u may have others,,,,,like havin only one mouse in th’ house,,,usually a few,,,,,,,,,an exercise in confirming that state certified allergists,nutritionists,,and a lotta mds are not minimally qualified to deal with allergies is to look up the entire class/genus of fruits to which bananas belong,,,,the complexity of the immune system(8 to the tenth power of immune cells in the adult human…..the biological heredity of humans,,,,,,common illnesses that have immune correlation,hence ,often improve based on a correct reading your own biological make up,then suppose a food/protein source may be causative in weakening the mucous membrane throat and GI tract lining thru damage to dna strands or ligands of immune cells in this area,causing inappropriate actions against a common foods as if they were an invading pathogen,,,,avoidance of bananas is axiomatic,other foods in this group should be avoided for six weeks,,,,,,stay away from chemicals,like bleach,alcohol,insecticide,phenol,aerosols,petrochemicals,sodas,pops
bleached flours,herb type drugs antibiotics,buy either mineral water,or use only good quality tap water,,,,,process of elimination may help ferret out other foods that are a problem,,,,,eat whole grains,veggies,,,,see if a protein source like chicken,fish,beef,lamb
might be the “hidden” immune system damager,this means the food itself is no problem,but impairs you tolerance of other foods,,,,

The most common complications are pneumonia and secondary bacterial skin infections. There are also neurologic and hepatic complications. The risk of complications or death is highest in people with compromised immune systems, to fetuses (early & late pregnancy), newborns, and adults. You are not at risk.

“I am asking this question because I heard people can get blind, or even DIE!!!” — Impaired vision is part of neurologic complications and also pregnancy complications.

How to get disability payments for the following?

I have a total of seven diagnosed disorders, but would I qualify for disability insurance or any of those awesome benefits? Should I be put in an institution as well?

1. I have severe OCD which makes it so I can’t go ten minutes without washing my hands, and the medication was proven to fail.
2. I have mild ADD which impairs my learning
3. I have severe Hypochondria that adds to my OCD and it adds in the fear of getting brain damage, and the medication was proven to fail.
4. I have moderate Dyslexia which obviously impairs my ways of spelling words and of reading written language.
5. I have been diagnosed with severe Anxiety Disorder.
6. I have been diagnosed with moderate Narcolepsy which puts me to sleep at uncontrollable times and caffeine has been proven to fail.
7. I have been diagnosed with impaired vision, but I’m not blind at the moment.

This has got to qualify for some real good disability payments, especially with the dimwitted ‘OCD and Hypochondria’ combination. What institutions take folks like me as well? I’m obviously insane with all of these disorders if Hypochondria happens to be one, so there has got to be one for me.

Is it smart to be a Spanish major and the once I get my undergrad degree, Master in Speech Language Pathology?

I want to be a SLP, but I am confused. My advisor isn’t helping to much either.

admin answers:

Wonderful question.

I ran a search on collegeboard.com and came up with 147 accredited 4-year universities in the USA that offer an undergraduate major in one of the following:
Communication Disorders ,
Education of Speech Impaired ,
Speech-Language Pathology

Amend your question to say which state you are in and I can give you a more specific recommendation. In general, look for schools where you can major in one and minor in the other.

You are wise to recognize that you will probably need a Masters in SLP, but there is no reason why you can’t get your pre-requisite coursework completed as part of your Bachelors.

How to understand that a heart attack was caused by an acute stress reaction?

How to understand that a heart attack was caused by an acute stress reaction?

admin answers:

In healthy subjects, acute mental stress simultaneously activates coagulation (ie, fibrinogen or von Willebrand factor) and fibrinolysis (ie, tissue-type plasminogen activator) within a physiological range. In patients with atherosclerosis and impaired endothelial anticoagulant function, however, procoagulant responses to acute stressors may outweigh anticoagulant mechanisms and thereby promote a hypercoagulable state. Chronic psychosocial stressors (job strain or low socioeconomic status) are related to a hypercoagulable state reflected by increased procoagulant molecules (ie, fibrinogen or coagulation factor VII) and by reduced fibrinolytic capacity. There is also some evidence that points to hypercoagulability in depression.( http://www.psychosomaticmedicine.org/con… ).

There is good evidence to show that stress can increase a person’s heart rate, lower the immune system’s ability to fight colds and increase certain inflammatory markers but can stress also raise a person’s cholesterol? It appears so for some people, according to a new study that examines how reactions to stress over a period of time can raise a person’s lipid levels.

Why is green tea better for you than regular tea?

They both have antioxidants, so whats the difference?

admin answers:

I have answered this question a few months ago …this is my answer
Best Answer – Chosen by Asker

both teas are good for you, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

cancer
rheumatoid arthritis
high cholesterol levels
cariovascular disease
infection
impaired immune function
The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke.
Green tea can even help dieters
Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay! Just as its bacteria-destroying abilities can help prevent food poisoning, it can also kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque. Meanwhile, skin preparations containing green tea – from deodorants to creams – are starting to appear on the market.
The only negative side effect reported from drinking green tea is insomnia due to the fact that it contains caffeine.

You would need to find this out from someone that has more complete information on the situation. There are all sorts of possible systemic failures that can occur, so whatever system is most impaired will probably fail first, and different systems fail at different rates. Ascites can persist for months or cause the circulatory system to collapse within days, depending on the severity. Liver failure varies in severity, and could take weeks to months. Bone cancer can affect blood characteristics in a variety of ways – a common effect is loss of the immune system, so people often die from an infection like the flu or pneumonia.
