Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language Is Known As

December 21, 2012

Sharon asks…

What Do you Think Of This Beginning? Does It Make You Want To Read More?

Harry’s date, as opposed to his other dates, went pretty well. He had pointed out the mistakes he made accidentally on the last ones and encouraged himself to build up his confidence anew; it was impaired by the girls who had turned him down. Harry was positively sure nothing could ruin it this time as he’d taken precautions against everything that might. His date had improved his temper entirely that anyone that was used to his old attitude would have noticed the change in his behavior. Harry did not think for a second that his exaggerated courage could turn out to be a lethal weapon to his relationship. His parents knew that and wanted to warn him, though he was already warned, but he tended to ignore anyone who tried to admonish him.

“Harry, I know you’re in love- I acted the same when I was in your age, but maybe you take it a bit too seriously? You sound as if you’re going to marry her.” A smile cracked his face as he thought of what he’d said. “Which I’m sure you’re not…

Billy, Harry’s father, mumbled in a low voice. Harry broke him off mid-sentence and put aside the arm his father had curled around his neck to hug him.

“Oh yes I am!” Harry said, emphasizing each word. “If you think it’s not serious- you’re incorrect!” he continued in the same level of tune.
Billy started at him for a long moment, repeating the words in his mind as if he had spoken them in a foreign language. He opened his mouth to reply but Harry pushed his palms down against the mattress to get up, angling his body towards the door.

“Sit down!” Harry commanded as Harry’s butt was lifted a few inches off the sheet. “IT’S AN ORDER” he shouted, reaching out to grab his arm. His eyebrows pulled together and darkened his stare as his forehead puckered up into tiny creases that accentuated the frown lines across it.

“Never, but never ignore me. Have I made myself clear?” Billy asked, holding up a finger as if to reprove him.

“Yes, sir” Harry answered, making a military salute and looked down at the pavement that was shaded by his father’s mighty figure. He let his right leg hang off the bed, swinging back and forth while the left one was folded under his butt, and fiddled with his necklace, pretending to be listening.

“Look son” Billy began, Harry rolled his eyes, making the “whatever-you-say” expression, could not wait for his boring lecture to come to an end. “I know it’s the first time you unexpectedly enjoy dating, but ignoring your friends? Your family? I’m sure she doesn’t want you to do that too…”

I am trying to be honest here so don’t try and let it get you down too much but this is not a beginning that would make me want to read the book more. It’s not a bad passage at all, it’s just not what I would use for the start of a book, there’s not reason why with a bit of tweaking you couldn’t use it later.

Who is the main character here in this book, is it harry? I don’t think many people will find a teenage boy wanting to marry a girl from a first date relatable, it’s not very realistic, sure a teenage boy a bit obsessive with his first good date but I think marry is a little bit extreme.

Also there are a few parts that are a little bit confusing, I think you needs to proof read e.g. “”Sit down!” Harry commanded as Harry’s butt was lifted” is that meant to be “sit down” bill commanded?

Another extreme section is the way his dad reacts, it’s very OTT considering his son has done nothing wrong. If he is meant to be like that, very bad tempered then that’s fine but there needs to be more of a gradual lead in perhaps harry doesn’t listen to him or he answers back a bit ETC think of fights you have had with your parents and how they escalated.

If this story is going to be focused on harry and his date personally I would start the story with one of harry’s bad dates that you mention at the start and put this passage in somewhere later. Perhaps start it with harry in a really embarrassing situation and then go back and explain to the audience what happened over the date to cause that. The more bizarre and cringworthy the situation, the bigger the laugh factor and the more the audience will want to find out what happened.

Another way of starting the story in a way that would hook the audience in would be perhaps to start it with a fight with Harry and Bill and let the plot unfold this way.

But to me at the moment a story that started with a teenage boy wanting to marry a girl he had just met would be a book shutter it just doesn’t have that hook

Thomas asks…

Is this story I wrote a good example of irony (long)?

I wrote a paper for my junior honors English class. This is the rough draft, but we are supposed to write a story that uses irony. She, my teacher also told us to write something foreign to us. We will be reading these aloud, so dont worry about the format. Please let me know if I did this correctly, and critique it as well. Thanks!

“Dancing is a Type of Love, Love without Pain”

The answer to the question you have following such an insignificant title is the hope in one individual taking something from it.

I took a night for myself. It isn’t everyday I love a stranger. I loved her for all the wrong reasons. Right?

A brilliantly dark room occupied by music is where i want to live. Her name is unimportant, but her ferocity is bold. Much like a winter night, her intentions are cold. Behind those brown eyes lies temptation, but in front of those brown eyes I found myself.

She had beauty that set her apart from everyone else at the club. Her hair was red and flowed harmoniously to every natural curve of her body. An invigorating scent flooded my nostrils and I was impaired. I was now live bait dangling from the end of desire’s hook.

“Come here often?”, I said.
As often as necessary.” Her voice penetrated my ears with such force that i was momentarily deaf.
I heard not her next few statements, but felt myself caught up in the voluptuous movements of her lips.
“Would you like to dance?”
I took the motion as a yes and followed after her swiftly.

She began moving. Well everything but her eyes, which were locked into my own. I know what I wanted from the start, which was beginning to look very possible. As if I needed to be seduced, she lightly grazed her beautiful body onto mine. The only thing in our way was paper thing clothing. All it did was prevent direct contact, besides, an imagination is what gets most men through much of their lives. The movement was quickly followed by movements of my own. Dancing isn’t it? She smiled at my inexperience on the dance floor, but what she didn’t know is that i had a lifetime of experience in other areas to make up for it.

We danced for hours, losing track of our time, body, and mind. I could not remember a single song I had heard that night. I could tell she felt as if she was in the driver’s seat. I found a devilish grin overtake my face at the thought of this. Oh how I had been here so many times before…

She was different than the other girls. I will have a hard time letting this one go.

I hadn’t yet heard a name, but she didn’t know mine either. We had spent the last 5 hours talking in a different language, body language, and it was clear what we were both saying.

The moon shone when the doors of the nightclub were behind us… still, a word hasn’t left either of our mouths. She follows me to my car and gets in.

Next thing I know we are at her apartment… I never take a woman to my apartment. As soon as I turn back around from closing and locking the door i find her body, as apparent as the sun in a clear, blue sky. The light hits half of her body, as if i was getting a preview. She was the most beautiful sight to ever hit my eyes. For the first time in my life i felt i was in love. Well with her body at least.

We spent a night above the covers… swimming like two fish out of water. Two bodies intermingled so tightly that it felt as if we were one. Hours and hours until finally it was over. I dreamed beautifully that night. Something about a dove over open water…

I awoke, happily seeing she was still asleep. I made my escape, which had became a Sunday morning ritual. As soon as I touched that door knob i felt something so fast that it was inexplicable. It doesn’t matter though, because it was a bullet through the back of my head. Dead I fell to the floor, put to sleep after years of longing for it.

Her name was temptation and i had had my final dance with her.
I am trying not to be too dramatic with it… it is a narrative expressing the main character’s night on the town.

I’m talking a highschool french class (french 1&2) But I feel like were going to slow. We’ve spent the past 5 weeks going over grammar and proper use of you and I and us and we. I know how to pronounce most of the words. DO you think I could learn quicker learning french words off of google translate? And do you know of anyone whos learned a whole language using only / mostly Google Translate?

When I access Google Translate using Safari browser on iPhone it takes me to the standard interface that is just meant for PCs, rather than the iPhone optimised interface, and this is annoying. It was working before but not anymore.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises To Improve Vision

admin answers:

Good vision is a vital part of feeling your best. We rely on sight more than any other sense to enjoy life to the fullest. Your vision changes naturally throughout your life. There are also three steps you can take to help take care of your sight:

Visit an eye doctor regularly.
Make changes to help yourself see better.
Take care of yourself.

Donna asks…

What should i do?eye problem?

i am on playing computer for like 12 hours or so a day for about 3 month and now my eyes are really and tired and sometimes they really hurt …what should i do is there any eye exercise or something…i want to improve my vision but i don’t to do those laser ,operation etc. when i was small my eyes where super good and now i ruined them can someone help me?i want eye exercise to improve vision and heal eyes…10Q
i said eyes you know the 2 balls on your face under forehead

admin answers:

Well, firstly, 12 hrs in front of a computer game, unless that is your job (and even still) then this is pretty unhealthy for your eyes and the rest of your body! Never mind exercising your eyes, try some actual exercise!

Cutting down the amount you sit in front of a computer screen ought to help first, you are probably straining your eyes.

You may need glasses to stop the strain, im not sure about exercises though, im no expert but i doubt there is anything you can do other than stop straining your eyes as much

I have to be on the computer a lot due to studying a lot. I make sure I have a 15 min break for every 45 mins. In that time i shut down the computer and do something completely different, like close my eyes and listen to some music – thus giving my eyes a rest

Maria asks…

Bates method of perfect vision?

I was reading online about bates’ method to improved vision through eye exercises and diet etc. And I want to know how true it is. I mean it seems pretty easy to do and if it’s true I will definitely try it.
What is the medicine called?

admin answers:

Yes, I used a similar method that worked well. Improving the muscles helps with eyesight as long as that is the problem.

There are also supplements to help the eyes repair themselves.

Don’t buy into the “no cure” ideology pushed by many doctors who only use drugs. Of course a drug can’t cure anything, it can only handle the symptoms.

Your Questions About Ways To Naturally Improve Eyesight

January 5, 2012

Lizzie asks…

What can i do to improve my eyesight in the quickest way?

i just went to get a eye check and my doc told me i had nearsightedness of 275 on both eyes. i dun wanna wear glasses, what can i do to get better eyesight in the quickest way other than surgery. i wanna do it naturally. currently, im doing a lot of eye exercises and not wearing my prescribed glasses cause i think that will just make my eyes worse. is it because i use the computer too long. i don’t want contacts either. if you guys have any personal experience with this stuff please tell me! thx in advance to those who wanna answer
i no there are a lot of scam out there claiming they work. im using bates eye exercising methods i just absolutely hate glasses and contacts

admin answers:

Yeah – well you and about 50% of the population don’t want to wear glasses and want an easy fix. That’s why there are lots of scams out there.

Be very skeptical of any claims that eyesight can be improved naturally or by special exercises.

“…no type of eye exercise can improve a refractive error or cure any ailment within the eyeball or in any remote part of the body. If you are considering a vision training program, request a written report detailing the problem, the proposed treatment plan, an estimate of the time and costs involved, and the prognosis. If the plan is not targeted toward a specific visual problem (such as amblyopia), or if it includes a broad promise such as improving I.Q., forget about it.”

Spectacles or contacts are ok – they are based on 100% natural ingredients! You’ll get used to them.

James asks…

how can i improve my eye sight naturally?

so my teacher changed everyones seat and put me in the back of the room but i can c from there and when i told her 2 times she said she wont change it back . i wear glasses but i think my eye sight might be getting worse. is there anything i can do to make my eyesight better.

i cant get new glasses right now or go to the eye Doctor because i cant afford it….

so is here any way that i can improve my eye sight naturally?
i get the biggest headache ever after that class !!

admin answers:

Jay, I am truly sorry to hear that your teacher would not accommodate you by moving you closer to the front. That is quite mean of her.

About improving your vision, I’m afraid there is really no proven way to accomplish this. I would however, suggest that one of your parents write the school a note explaining your situation and hopefully, the teacher will move you.

I’m really sorry I couldn’t be of any help.

Robert asks…

Can you improve your vision naturally?

In my experience, my eyesight used to be sort of bad, there were certain things I couldn’t see from a distance. I decided to eat even more healthy and do eye exercises. In about lets say a couple of months my eyes got slightly better. Things got a bit clearer, I started to see some differences.

I heard a person once had bad eyesight and went to 20 20. And I heard another one went in a range from -3.75 to -1.25 over doing some eye exercises.

A lot of opticians say once you get them bad, you can’t get them back. But a lot of people have improved theirs. So is there a possible way you can get it back to 20 20 or close? Naturally?

admin answers:

It may be possible to get 20/20. But it does require a few little things to be right. There are bad vision habits to get rid off. (staring being the major one). Relaxing in the head and not allowing bad attitudes to take over are other areas to consider. I find looking down on other people to make sense of a situation makes eyesight worse. It’s also a bad idea going around with an arrogant attitude that you know the right way to do things and your approach is always perfect. That’s a sign of a person unable to look at his own errors/mistakes and is generally being ignorant.

The other issue is how bad is your prescription. You might be dealing with having an eyeball that has elongated which means there’s nothing you can do to get closer to 20/20. I tried myself to use reading glasses to help encourage the eyeball to regain a sphere shape. I haven’t been able to check what shape my eyeball is now but it definitely makes a noticeable difference to the vision after wearing the glasses for a few hours.

I’m.willing to accept that some people did officially manage to reach 20/20. (like the author of ‘secret of perfect vision’) but it seems a period of 10 years would be a more realistic length of time for the eyeball adjustment to be finalized. I find it easy to wear plus power contact lenses everyday but I do feel while wearing them that i become very withdrawn with occasional oddness in my behaviour. I definitely would say I act like a completely different person with the lenses. This is probably very confusing for friends and family.

Regarding your question about opticians saying eyesight never gets better. They would be lying if they suggest EVERY person that undertakes an eyetest with them ALWAYS get a result of worse vision. If there is an explanation why this fact should be ignored then let them explain why.
People online in this site have said it happened to them. You may know friends or family who had this experience or most crucially you yourself have your own evidence in the form of your prescription.

So this stand off between two sides must indicate someone is being ignorant of the truth.

In my opinion if someone is talking about a subject and can be completely independent in their opinion then their answer is more likely to be a genuine one. If someone relies on money coming into their bank account from the sale of a product/service then that persons opinion is likely to have been compromised.

I would also like to say that it makes it harder to quit a habit when living with someone who continues with it at the same time. It applies to many things such as smoking, alcohol etc. While at first it may seem easiest for the person quitting because they face the rewards of their hard work. If the other person chooses to look down on you for your decisions it can change to a situation where they are making life harder for you. Also they might choose to make you feel like an idiot for what you’re doing (if they don’t agree with it) And in a way (in the example.of wearing glasses) they know there is no doubt about them ever having to struggle. Wearing glasses can appear a very easy option (because for them having bad eyesight comes easily.)

Your Questions About Improve Vision Naturally

November 22, 2011

Ruth asks…


Hello everybody. I have a big problem on my hands. I can’t see thing very well from far away. They all seem blurry. Like today in my geography class, we were writing things down from the projector, and i couldn’t see it well. It all just looked blurry, so i had to copy of my friend. I need something that will help to improve my vision naturally. I CAN NOT get glasses, I play a lot of sports, and they’re mostly violent, so I would probably just break them constantly, so glasses are a BIG NO. I have thought about wearing contacts, but I’m not sure. I would have to constantly keep buying new one’s, are there a type of contacts that you can wear for a very long time, like over months? But I would REALLY like a natural solution, I will not get laser eye surgery, and most importantly, are there types of food that you can eat which will help your eyes. Please I really need help.

admin answers:

Sounds like you are starting to become nearsighted which is best suited for contact lenses. The ones that last the longest are gas permeable hard contacts or extended wear soft contacts.

Carol asks…

Can your vision improve?

My prescription is 150 and I was wondering if I can naturally improve my vision. If there is a way, please share it!

admin answers:

Not really. What they say about carrots improving your eyesight is not true. They can’t make you see better. They contain some substance that is important for the body to create new eye-cells. But that only means that it could make a situation stable, not improve it.

Lisa asks…

Can your eyes naturally heal from bad vision?

well not from extremely bad vision, but where:
your seat in the classroom is in the middle, and all you can make out on the board is a few words, nd u have to strain your eyes to see it?

are there any excercises OR SOMETHING NATURAL that can help improve my vision?

admin answers:

There DEFINATELY is a natural remedy, and do NOT get your eyes lasered.

I know a guy who manages the dance class I go to, his eyes got lasered, but after 10 years, he’s 55 now, he’s suffering from the breakdown of the retina… Which is supposed to occur at 70. Laser surgery will greatly decrease the longevity of your vision in the long run.

Your eyes have low numbers, which is easyy to fix.
The natural remedy, which I SWEAR TO GOD works, is this:
-Splash your eyes with colddd water everyday in the sink for about 3 minutes a day. This will cool the eyes, hydrate and let them relax from daily strain and within 8-12 months, you’ll have perfect vision.

My family. B/c of genetics has bad eyesight… God didn’t make us perfect. The numbers are genetically supposed to be around 4-6. There’s a fruit called “aamla” or in english known as “gooseberry” it’s very sour. But it has magic in it. Get a juice machine, juice 8-10 of them, and it’ll make about 100mL of juice. Drink it…everyday, for 4 months. Your eyes will become 20-20. My guarantee. My mom in 8th grade has 5.5 on both her eyes… That’s like you can’t read the time on your wristwatch without glasses. She drank it for 4 months a year, because it’s a seasonal fruit, every year. Her numbers are 0.75. I had 4.75, and now they’re 0.5, in 4 months.
