Betty asks…

What are all of romeo’s lines word for word in the famous balcony scene?

“But Soft! What light through yonder window breaks . . .”

Also, what are some other super romantic lines? (Juliet’s and Romeo’s)

admin answers:

SCENE II. Capulet’s orchard.

Enter ROMEO
ROMEO
He jests at scars that never felt a wound.

JULIET appears above at a window

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!
She speaks yet she says nothing: what of that?
Her eye discourses; I will answer it.
I am too bold, ’tis not to me she speaks:
Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven,
Having some business, do entreat her eyes
To twinkle in their spheres till they return.
What if her eyes were there, they in her head?
The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars,
As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night.
See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O, that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!

JULIET
Ay me!

ROMEO
She speaks:
O, speak again, bright angel! For thou art
As glorious to this night, being o’er my head
As is a winged messenger of heaven
Unto the white-upturned wondering eyes
Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him
When he bestrides the lazy-pacing clouds
And sails upon the bosom of the air.

JULIET
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

ROMEO
[Aside] Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?

JULIET
‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

ROMEO
I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo.

JULIET
What man art thou that thus bescreen’d in night
So stumblest on my counsel?

ROMEO
By a name
I know not how to tell thee who I am:
My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself,
Because it is an enemy to thee;
Had I it written, I would tear the word.

JULIET
My ears have not yet drunk a hundred words
Of that tongue’s utterance, yet I know the sound:
Art thou not Romeo and a Montague?

ROMEO
Neither, fair saint, if either thee dislike.

JULIET
How camest thou hither, tell me, and wherefore?
The orchard walls are high and hard to climb,
And the place death, considering who thou art,
If any of my kinsmen find thee here.

ROMEO
With love’s light wings did I o’er-perch these walls;
For stony limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do that dares love attempt;
Therefore thy kinsmen are no let to me.

JULIET
If they do see thee, they will murder thee.

ROMEO
Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye
Than twenty of their swords: look thou but sweet,
And I am proof against their enmity.

JULIET
I would not for the world they saw thee here.

ROMEO
I have night’s cloak to hide me from their sight;
And but thou love me, let them find me here:
My life were better ended by their hate,
Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love.

JULIET
By whose direction found’st thou out this place?

ROMEO
By love, who first did prompt me to inquire;
He lent me counsel and I lent him eyes.
I am no pilot; yet, wert thou as far
As that vast shore wash’d with the farthest sea,
I would adventure for such merchandise.

JULIET
Thou know’st the mask of night is on my face,
Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek
For that which thou hast heard me speak to-night
Fain would I dwell on form, fain, fain deny
What I have spoke: but farewell compliment!
Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say ‘Ay,’
And I will take thy word: yet if thou swear’st,
Thou mayst prove false; at lovers’ perjuries
Then say, Jove laughs. O gentle Romeo,
If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully:
Or if thou think’st I am too quickly won,
I’ll frown and be perverse an say thee nay,
So thou wilt woo; but else, not for the world.
In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond,
And therefore thou mayst think my ‘havior light:
But trust me, gentleman, I’ll prove more true
Than those that have more cunning to be strange.
I should have been more strange, I must confess,
But that thou overheard’st, ere I was ware,
My true love’s passion: therefore pardon me,
And not impute this yielding to light love,
Which the dark night hath so discovered.

ROMEO
Lady, by yonder blessed

Ken asks…

Why do some Christians deny the forces of good and evil when Christ Himself did not (Isa. 7:15, etc)?

saiah 7:15
Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

also Psalm 34:14, Isaiah 5:20, Rev. 19:11ff. etc, etc.

admin answers:

The first verse that you quoted establishes the goodness of God who is a just Judge who makes allowances for immature ignorance as is also confirmed in this somewhat parallel passage.

Deuteronomy 1:37 The LORD was also angry with me for your sakes, saying, ‘Even you shall not go in there. 38 Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there. Encourage him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. 39 ‘Moreover your little ones and your children, who you say will be victims, who today have no knowledge of good and evil, they shall go in there; to them I will give it, and they shall possess it. 40 But as for you, turn and take your journey into the wilderness by the Way of the Red Sea.’

Bible believing Christians do not deny the forces of good and evil, they only recognize that God is sovereign and while He allow the forces of evil to operate in His creation, He makes sure that everything works together to accomplish His overall will.

Romans 8:28-39 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written: “FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE KILLED ALL DAY LONG; WE ARE ACCOUNTED AS SHEEP FOR THE SLAUGHTER.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Sandra asks…

overseas chinese had suffer the tragic fate like the jew .but why the western media turned a blind eye to it?

Massacre and Slaughter of the Overseas Chinese

A.D. 1602 – Luzon, Phillipines
At least 30,000 chinese merchants were slaughtered
and in Luzon chinese officials and civilians were killed
without authority by what The Ming Shi-lu (明實錄) describes
as the barbarian(spanish) cheiftain of Luzon during that time.
The surviving chinese fled to Wawa, or what is now known as
Guagua, this atrocity is known in Chinese history as the Luzon
Tragedy (吕宋惨案). The Tsaynese inhabitants of Manila set fire
to Legarda and Binondo and for a time threatened to capture Intramuros.

A.D. 1603 – Manila, Philippines
24,000 massacred by Spaniards when Ming Mandarins
visited the islands sparking fears of Chinese dominance.

A.D. 1662 – Manila, Philippines
30,000 put to sea and expelled from the Philippines.
Those caught outside the Parian (Manila’s Chinese
ghetto) were beheaded immediately.

10,000 Chinese massacred in the Tay Son movement’s
retaking of Cholon from Nguyen Anh who in 1780 had
proclaimed himself the new Nguyen ruler.

A.D. 1823 – South Borneo
10,000-20,000 Chinese massacred when Chinese “kongsi”
resisted the withdrawal and reselling of mining
concession to the Dutch by local Sultans due to
monetary jealousy and rivalry.

A.D. 1857 – Sarawak, North Borneo
2,000-5,000 Chinese massacred by Raja Brooke

parties” by unemployed white vigilantes frightened by
the Yellow Peril frenzy.

A.D. 1965-1966 – Indonesia
500,000 killed in anti-communist violence, many were
local Chinese suspected of communist activities, others
were those who joined the PKI (Parti Kommunis Indonesia)

defending worker rights, while many others were innocent
victims caught in the frenzied bloodletting of racial
jealousy and animosity.

under the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, blamed the Chinese
for their sufferings and rioted in the streets of Jakarta.
Untold numbers of Chinese were killed, Chinese girls were
gang-raped and houses plundered. The Indonesian police,
unable or unwilling to stop the violence, prompted residents
of housing estates to band together to erect barricades,
arm themselves and to employ armed guards to patrol the
streets.

Sandy asks…

What are negative impacts of green house gases on the environment?

I’m jiggz I’m doin a n.s assessment

admin answers:

It’s many. Some of which are

Most scientists believe that the increase in global temperatures will cause the polar ice caps and glaciers to begin to melt. This will cause sea levels to rise. In the past 100 years ocean levels have already risen about one foot. Because we have built our cities right on the coastlines, many of them would be in peril of serious flooding – if not outright collapse.

The rise and expansion of the sea would also allow storm surges and hurricane waves to proceed further inland, causing more damage.

Temperature increases can also lead to changes in weather patterns, precipitating more frequent and severe storms. The costs to protect ourselves from flooding and storm damage could be enormous.

Many aquifers which provide our drinking water could become contaminated with salt water, thus decreasing the available supply.

Weather patterns will definitely be changed by this process. Some areas will become drier while others will become wetter. While some areas will be able to increase (or begin) crop production, some major crop producing areas could fail due to less favorable growing conditions.

If too much drying occurs in areas, droughts could follow. This could lead to more disasters like the Dust Bowl days in the prairie states of the United States earlier in our history.

The rise in temperature is occurring relatively quickly. Many animal species cannot adapt to this sudden fluctuation. It is possible that many species will become extinct because of this stress. Some ecosystems like coral reefs, which are already living at the upper edge of their temperature tolerances, are very usceptible to temperature changes. These ecosystems could suffer severe damage or simply die out altogether.

Diseases which are currently restricted to tropical areas could spread to other areas as they become warmer and more receptive to the agents which carry the diseases.

Susan asks…

Did Odysseus in “The Odyssey” have wanderlust or was he just trying to get home?

I often hear about Odysseus having wanderlust, but from what I remember of the text, he was just trying his best to get back home and did not really want to wander anywhere.

admin answers:

The Odyssey by Homer Written 800 B.C.E

Odysseus: The Universal Man

Although Odysseus possesses admirable qualities—including wisdom, bravery, leadership, craftiness, loyalty, perseverance, and endurance—he is quite human. For example, he frequently takes unnecessary risks to satisfy his insatiable curiosity, imperiling his and his crew’s safety. He also brags about his accomplishments. In this respect, he is like the rest of us: flawed, imperfect. Consequently, we identify with him, and his voyage home from war becomes our voyage through life. Many of his adventures end successfully; some go terribly wrong. All the while, he never loses sight of his ultimate goal: to reunite with his wife and son. MORE…

http://www.cummingsstudyguides.net/Guides2/Odyssey.html#Universal

=============================================

Major Characters

Odysseus: Odysseus is the main character of the Odyssey, a tale which chronicles his homecoming and his journeys since his departure from Troy. Odysseus was present in the Iliad but not with the same focus as this poem. The story focus on his trials at sea and on land and how, once he gets home, he must avenge his family’s honor from the suitors who have been besieging his house waiting for his wife to choose a new husband. He is aided by Athena in his journeys but thwarted by Poseidon.

Http://www.bookrags.com/notes/od/CHR.htm

===============================================

The Odyssey Symbolism, Imagery, and Allegory
Sometimes, there’s more to Lit than meets the eye.

The Sea

Odysseus spends so much time sailing home that the sea really takes up a good chunk of his life. This is fitting, since the sea and its perils work much the same way the Odyssey argues that life does; it is full of suffering, but it can’t be avoided. The sea can send blessings like sea breezes to blow him home or obstacles like storms, Skylla and Charybdis, and treacherous islands. Because the sea is ruled by Poseidon, it is also a manifestation of the superiority of the gods and nature over man.

Disguises and Dreams

In the Odyssey, disguises are usually a sign of divine intervention, manipulation, and sanction. The gods have no qualms deceiving mortals and helping their favorites deceive others. They often use disguises themselves, reminding us that the gods, too, can be devious. Dreams as well are the direct result of divine power, but tend to be more straightforward and often comfort the sleeping mortal.

Food and Banqueting

In a culture that holds hospitality as an all-important test of character, feasting and festivities are a measure of hospitality and human civility. Often, defects in the banquet signal some fundamental flaw in the host. For example, Polyphêmos feasts on human flesh, which makes him, well, an inhuman monster. Kirkê seems hospitable because she serves good food, but proves to be a witch by poisoning that very food with a drug that turns the diners into animals. Odysseus’s men transgress boundaries of hospitality by dining on Hêlios’s sacred cattle and suffer death as a consequence. The most obvious example of a misused banquet is the suitors’ pillaging of Odysseus’s provisions. This shows that the supposedly “noble” men do not have the human qualities of restraint and propriety; they are therefore somewhat less than human and worthy of death (or so the Odyssey argues). On the other hand, Nestor, Meneláos, and the Phaiákians serve proper banquets – full of good food, wine, and singing. They are considered not only good hosts, but great human beings.

Odysseus and Penélopê’s Bed

It turns out that Odysseus carved his bed from the roots of a live olive tree. As such, the bed is unmovable. It’s also growing, but evidently that’s not a problem for anyone. The point is that the bed can’t be moved, altered, or shaken – it’s steadfast and constant, much like the love between this royal couple. Odysseus’s sleeping around seems not to count, but Penélopê’s continuous loyalty is represented by the unmovable bed. More…

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

Betty asks…

Realistically how much longer do you think tna will be on tv?

There on a big decline and already get terrible raitings wwe is improving and going up

admin answers:

They wont be cancelled.

What most fans dont know is that TNA is bigger over seas than they are in the United States. Even if TNA lost SPIKE TV and stopped touring in the United States they would still flourish from their over seas sales and TV revenue.

The only thing holding TNA back in the United States is TNA. They just havent taken off like they have in other countries however it’s important to understand that no wrestling company ever became huge in 10 years, 20 years or even 30 years. It took WWE over 35 years before they became the #1 wrestling company in the world. So you can see how TNA being around for only 11 years it would be unfair to expect them to even compete with the WWE at this point.

Besides all that the WWE and WCW didnt have to compete with the UFC which has sucked up about half of the viewers from pro wrestling.

Also, just to give you a quick 411 on TNA. The Carters bought 70% of TNA in 2002 for 250k. In 2006 the Nielsen ratings company offered to buy TNA for 60 million dollars. The Carters turned it down. Today TNA’s value is estimated at 100 million dollars. They have multi million dollar state of the art production studio at their headquarters much like WWE does and they have offices overseas much like WWE does.

As for being cancelled, Despite their low ratings of .9 to 1.5 (1.5 was their highest rating to date when they went head to head with RAW on Monday night) Despite the low ratings TNA is still the highest rated programming on SPIKE TV. Even the UFC came in 2nd to TNA when they were on SPIKE.

TNA just needs to get there name out their nationally.

Years ago WWE released a series of commercials when they launched the attitude era. The commercials aired during the Superbowl and were viewed by 100 million people. TNA needs to do something like that.

TNA is in no danger of going bankrupt.

Also, PANDA ENERGY does not put money into TNA. They do not own TNA. Robert Carter ownes 70% of TNA, Jeff Jarrett ownes 30% of TNA however, he is a silent partner.

FYI – Jeff Jarrett’s estate value before he sold TNA to the Carters was about 125k in 2002. Today the value of Jeff Jarretts estate is a whopping 30 million dollars. He’s loaded BECAUSE of TNA’s success over the last 11 years.

And Robert Carter who ownes 70 % of TNA and also ownes Panda energy is a billionaire. He has already stated that he will never sell TNA because it’s a cash cow. Since buying TNA he’s invested 6.25 million dollars on the company…250k to buy 70% of the company and 6 million to improve production and talent on the roster. TNA cut him a check in full in less than one year after they bought the company. There for TNA is not in debt or in any financial peril.

And many of the talents have debunked the story created by a WWE fan that TNA’s pay check are late. Even a recently fired TNA talent stated that was a lie and that TNA has always paid on time.

You really need to keep a eye out for BS info that is created by WWE fans. They love to bash TNA and make TNA sound like the next WCW when in fact WWE is more like WCW than TNA. TNA is actually more like the WWE of the 90′s. TNA only has 3 talents or staff members who worked in WCW. WWE has over 100 employees, staff members , scouts, production staff, talent and other positions that worked in WCW. Even WWE head of talent is WCW former Head of talent and WWE’s talent trainers are mostly all former WCW wrestlers and not even good ones at that. Norman Smiley, Hugh Morris, Fit Finley, Kidman, Dusty Roades, Arn anderson, Lex Luger and Terry Taylor.

Donald asks…

Are there any other books like Graceling by Kristin Cashore?

I love the book Graceling and the series by Kristin Cashore, but I can’t find any other books like hers. does anyone have any suggestions?

admin answers:

I love Graceling and the whole medieval genre. Other books that I love just as much and that are similar are:

The Study Series by MARIA V. SNYDER. The first book is called “Poison Study” and there are 3 books in the series (there is also a spin off series now as well, which starts with Stormglass) and she has a new series starting with “Touch of Power” that is great as well. Here’s what I can find on amazon.com:

Yelena has committed the ultimate sin and for that, she has been sentenced to die by hanging. Yet when she faces the man whom will send her to the noose, she receives an offer instead to live. Granted, there are catches, first and foremost the duty of food taster. Assassination by poison is ever a favored way to strike at the Commander and as the next prisoner to be executed, and as they need to fill the position, Yelena is next in line for the job. Thinking escape is surely in her future, she takes on the dangerous new duty. Her new handler though, Valek, has many tricks up is sleeve and soon Yelena finds it’s not as easy to escape as she thought.

“The Witches of Eileanan” by Kate Forsyth
6 books in the series ‘Dragonclaw’ is the first. From Library Journal
In a land where witchcraft has been forbidden, young Isabeau learns the old ways in order to take her place in the battle to overcome the forces that threaten her world. Australian poet Forsyth’s fantasy debut details a richly imagined universe with a distinctly Celtic flavor and introduces a resourceful and courageous protagonist. This first novel in a projected trilogy belongs in libraries where the demand for epic fantasy is high.

In the Celtic land of Eileanan, witches and magic have been outlawed, and those caught for practicing witchcraft are put to death! It is a land ruled by an evil Queen, where sea-dwelling Fairgean stir, and children vanish in the night. But in a valley deep in the mountains, young Isabeau grows to womanhood under the guidance of an elderly witch, and must set out on a quest, carrying the last hopes of the persecuted witches.

The “Pellinor Series” by ALISON CROGGON. It goes The Gift, The Riddle, The Crow and The Singing.

Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken there as a child when her family is destroyed in war. She doesn’t yet know she has inherited a powerful gift, one that marks her as a member of the noble School of Pellinor and enables her to see the world as no other can. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true identity and extraordinary destiny unfold. Now, she and her mysterious teacher must embark on a treacherous, uncertain journey through a time and place where the forces of darkness wield an otherworldly terror.

“The Old Kingdom Trilogy” by Garth Nix. It goes Sabriel, Lirael and then Abhorsen.

Darker than most fantasy this is a trilogy to really immerse oneself in. Sabriel is at boarding school until her father goes missing and she is forced to return to the land of her birth and assume the role of Abhorsen, guardian of the nine levels of death and warrior against the evil forces that lurk there. With free-magic an untameable peril that daily confronts the stability of the Old Kingdom Sabriel has her work cut out to develop the necessary skills to survive the onrushing cataclysm. Imagine Harry Potter cast into the wilderness and made to fight Voldemort without the safety and education of Hogwarts and his friends. This is stripped down magical fantasy, spectacularly characterised and awesomely exciting.

I hope you like the sound of at least one of them ^_^

Ken asks…

Can anyone give me a short and sweet summary of the book called A Series of Unfortunate Events Book the 12th?

I really need to have a quick summary, forgot to read this book for reading class and I’m going to be totally screwed, so I need to know a summary of the book A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS: THE PENULTIMATE PERIL – Book the twelfth (12)th.

Any help would be greatly appreciated you guys =).

admin answers:

Okay…let me tell you as much as I can remember. This is going to take you only 5 min…it’s very short and sweet compared to the time it’ll take you to read the book. Oops, sorry for wasting your time.

The Baudelaires go with Kit Snicket to Hotel Denouement, where the Baudelaire disguise as concierges. A VFD meeting with all the noble and treachry people is about to take place and a lot of volunteers are coming to the hotel, including Sir, Principal Nero, Charles, Hal, Mr. Poe, and Olaf and Esme. The sugar bowl is suppose to be brought to the hotel by crows and land inside the laundry room.
The Baudelaires meet a noble person called Dewey, who has a library under a pond in front of the hotel. However, Count Olaf comes and threatens to kill Dewey if the Baudelaires do not leave with him. Count Olaf has a harpoon and points it at Dewey. However, the Baudelaires manage to get hold of the harpoon, but shoots Dewey and kills him.
The Baudelaires are then brought to trial in the hotel by Justice Strauss as the judge. Everyone is blindfolded because “the law is blind.” While everyone is blind folded, Count Olaf takes Justice Strauss away and the Baudelaires chase after them.
Count Olaf forces the Baudelaires to help him unlock the lock to the laundry room, so he can get the sugar bowl. The sugar bowl is not there.
Count Olaf, seeing that there are a lot of volunteers in the hotel, starts a fire in the laundry room and goes to the top floor with the Baudelaires.
At the top floor, there is a giant swimming pool, with a boat in it. Count Olaf forces the Baudelaires onto the boat with him and pushes the boat into the pond (which for some reason leads to the sea.)
The hotel is left to burn and the Baudelaires are trapped on a boat with Count Olaf.

For more information, you can always check on http://en.wikipedia.org or of course, go to the library and borrow the book out.

Good luck and happy reading. Cheers!

With all due respect,

Joseph asks…

I wanted to becum either a signed language teacher or an interrpretor when i get older.What should my major be

i know how to spell!! It only allows you a certain number of letters in your original question. So please get off my ass!

admin answers:

They have colleges that teach those careers specifically.
So combine that with an Education Degree depending on what grade you want to teach elementary or secondary. That is if you want to teach hearing impaired students or maybe you meant you want to teach sign language? Either way those should be good.

Sandra asks…

What are the social affects of impaired hearing in young children?

Honest answers please. I am doing this for a school assignment. Thanks

admin answers:

Depends how much their hearing is impaired.

If they wear hearing aids other children may tease them or avoid them.

If they are unable to use hearing aids (due to severity of hearing loss) then they may misunderstand a lot of the stuff going on in their environment whether through not being able to lip read others correctly or misinterpreting visual clues.

If they only use sign language they may not be able communicate with anybody (including their parents – it’s surprising how many hearing parents of deaf chidren do not learn sign language) and as a result be isolated.

Their choice of TV programs is also limited as not a lot of children’s programs have someone interpreting what is said in to sign (if they are young they may not be able to read so subtitles are useless to them)

If they learn to speak their accent may cause teasing or cause them to be misunderstood.

They may need someone with them at all times to protect them from dangers which are normally heard before they are seen (at which point it is too late to do anything) or to interpret their language for them.

David asks…

How to tell if she is interested in me if you were socially impaired?

One sign that shows a girl is interested is by eye contact…
I’m socially inept so I can’t look into a girls eyes to tell whether she likes me or not…
If i force myself, I find myself staring and then when she looks over, i quickly turn my eyes away.
I can’t approach a girl cuz im always in my confort zone
How can I tell if a girl likes me even though i can’t see the signs?

admin answers:

First try building up your self esteem…girls love a guy that’s assertive and secure,that way you can read her body language and pick up when she flirts…..second,how are you gonna talk to her after you find out that she likes you?

Laura asks…

I have some hearing loss, is it ok to request an interpreter for court?

I ask because the form to request one that Maryland provides asks what language you speak and from what country… there’s no option asking if you are deaf or hearing impaired. I have a trial coming up on a speeding ticket where I am requesting a waiver however I am nervous because of my hearing loss… Also if its ok for me to request one, do I have to pay for the interpreter?
Thank you!

admin answers:

The court has to follow ADA…Americans with Disabilities Act. They must provide an interpreter, ASL, or oral interpreter. If the deaf person does not use a signed language then can use a computer notetaker who types out what is said. Contact the courthouse that you are requesting an interpreter.

George asks…

How to listen to English and understand without subtitles?

I know grammar. I know how to pronounce words. And even write some text. However the only thing I can’t seem to understand is listening without subtitles. I understand a little bit but not everything. No matter what accent it is still a bit hard for me to understand the whole sentence. I want to understand without subtitles because it gives me a feel of victory to understand it correctly. English isn’t my native language. So do you have any tips?

admin answers:

This may sound counterintuitive, but the best way to improve your spoken english understanding is listening WITH subtitles…in English. Most DVD’s / BD’s have English for Hearing Impaired subtitles. They can be a little annoying as they will include descriptions of sound, but they may help you connect spoken words with english texts.

Linda asks…

Are you required to hire an interpreter for a hearing impaired employee in Arkansas?

Is an employer required to hire a sign language interpreter for a hearing impaired employee in the state of Arkansas?

admin answers:

ADA requires ‘reasonable’ accommodations. Hiring additional people to do one job is not necessarily held to be a reasonable accommodation – particularly in a small company, this might be seen as placing an unreasonable burdon on the company.

A lawyer would have to determine whether the request for an interpreter met the test of ‘reasonableness’.
