Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

November 13, 2012

Maria asks…

What’s a really good name for this kind of game?

I’m trying again with this question WITH the additional details from last time because 3-4 of the people who answered the question didn’t give me good suggestions but it seemed like no one took the additional details on board. But anyway, back to the point. I’m planning on making a video game in the future and I’m looking for the perfect name for it. I hope the information below helps:

Far into the future, a global virtual reality called the ‘Dream Network’ was set up. It was originally meant to be a large-scale online RPG-style social networking community, but it became more than that. People started using it to have fun and even cure the stresses of daily life in the real world. It became extremely popular with high schools around the world. But then problems began to surface. When it was discovered that the Dream Network could be used to fulfil certain causes or achieve certain ends, people started hijacking the network for their cause, while other governments feared the network would become too powerful and began blocking it, but a few have started spreading viral programs into the system. Very soon, the real problem emerges. Chaos and conspiracy begins both online and offline and society begins to fall apart. The society that used to be can never come back. Society can now only be preserved or changed. The US Government is calling upon organisations create a unifying blueprint for a new society and take charge of the world alongside it, but others have plans for the world as well. Now you play as young high-schooler, Alex, and his friends are investigating the Dream Network and once Alex discovers that the Dream Network to change the world as he sees fit, all bets are off.

What do you think the best name for a game with this plot would be? Try not to use a name that’s already been used. This game is probably not an RPG, or at least a normal RPG. In the game, you get access to powers you won’t be able use in the real world and acquire them through Mantras (which are similar to Magatama in Nocturne except that this game is not a role-player, like Nocturne is). In the real world you get to socialize, access the Dream Network and take part in covert missions if you so choose. Basically, the virtual world is a high-octane, action-packed, superpowered, fantastical world, especially for a cross between a social network and an online game, while the real world has, other than covert missions, socialization, dates and lots of elements from a visual novel. The game’s ending is dependent on the actions you take throughout the game’s plot. Whether it’s a one-off game or a series depends on a few factors, such as story and the success of the first game. The Dream Network was created to be a social network and online game community (genre not specific). But then something unexpected happened: a new program is launched called Core which gives Dream Network users superhuman powers of their desires through use of Mantra programs, but it goes far and people start discovering secrets within the network. In addition to that, it is discovered that the Dream Network could be used to create and practice blueprints for a new society and spread people’s ideologies. This is taken advantage of rapidly. The four organisations are as follows: the Righteous Order, a religious organization, the Reunion Group, an organization advocating natural principles in human society, the Crimson Phoenix Movement, an organisation that advocates a free society without law and the High Frontier, an organisation advocating an elite society. You have the option of supporting one or none.
Oh, when I said “you have the option of supporting one or none” after describing the four organisations, it meant that you can support one of the organisations or reject all of them to pursue the character’s own idea of a new society.
@Jack Richardson I think I prefer The Dream but I haven’t decided. Is The Dream taken? I was thinking Dream Hackers or Mind Hackers, which could refer to the virtual reality and the fact that high school teenagers were serving as the heroes. But now the emphasis is less on high school heroes and more on the game’s backdrop or story. How about VR, or VR Network which refers to the network itself. Or how about Reset or R3S3T, which refers to the rebirth of society and of the world.
@Roland Slight problem, apparently Dream Network is copyrighted by other companies.

Just before I give a name, I want to tell you that you can sell video game ideas to companies and you can make a percentage profit and have a say in the development. I think you should call it ‘The dream Network’. Good Luck.

Linda asks…

what’s a good naruto based mmorpg something u just made up but follows the realistically of the naruto series?

mine would be the basics of everyone who have ever answered this question u make ur character start off as a academy student and make it up threw the ranks taking on different missions and fighting against neighboring villages and of course the thingz that 90% of all mmorpg’s have

u would be able to make it to jounin but u wouldnt be able to make it to kage unless u beat the kage at the time and there could only be one kage of that village at one time

the blood lines would be given out randomly off of a questioner when ur making ur character(s) and it locks that bloodline into ur IP address so no going out so u can get sharingan or something like that but the down side would be if u get to be a normal nin ur normal 4 ever but lets say u kill someone with a bloodline afer kills a certain amount of people with that bloodline you get that blood line but the number would be in like the hundreds or something of course there will be good thingz to having a bloodline but there would also be the weaknesses shown in the anime and if u were just a regular nin u would have advantages and didadvantages just like the regular nin in naruto

your born into a random village

the kaze of what ever village ur in gets the most of the work like taking care of negotiations with a enemy village making war against another village and so on and so fourth but unlike in the anime the kage will have most of the power instead of the elderz but lets say the kage at the time wants to start a war but most of the people in the village refuse or one person refuses they can try and organize a coudeta but if there plan fails executed lose a rank, or exiled what ever the kage chooses…

the demon’s will roam the entire naruto mmorpg universe and if ur stong enough to take it on and seal it into u u can do that but the demon’s would be like immune to poison and have almost unlimited chakra with a healing ability thats always in afect so the best way wold be to organize a small or large squad of the villages best and go try to capture it and seal it into one person except the hokage at the time but it can be some one who was kage then lost it

lets say u answer the questioner and u dont get to be a ninja youll be the normal people that make the weapons the scrolls build monuments and stuff simple little thingz that make a big diffrence

akatsuki and other small groups would be made by anyone who decides i want to leave my village or people who want to be a spy for them of course the biggest one would be akatsuki the leader would be the same as the kage’s the strongest at that time and the same thin for the smaller ones and they choose what they want to do kill random people, take over villages, get all the demon’s, and so on

the attributes would be like ninjutsu, taijutsu, genjutsu and what ever other type of jutsu there are and a few fake ones like for weapons smarts and what ever you would get a certain amount of abilty points that u could choose to put on/into any one you like u would start off getting a little bit of ability points at first then when u start getting to higher lvl’s(not ranks) u would start getting more and more AP at a time but to every good thing there is bad so when u make ur character u start off with a reasonable amount in every thing but not just random its based off of ur questioner so if u got sharingan most of ur starting off AP would be in ninjutsu and im not sure wether gen or tai but what ever ur questioner said u should be ur begining AP would mimic that so lets say u should be a weapon type person and most of your AP is in weapons but u dont like weapons u want to be gen jutsu u can put all of ur AP in gen till the point in witch just walking past someone puts them in a daze but ur weapons AP will NOT change almost for got ur chakra nature will be based off ur questioner just like most of the thingz so if it says ur going into what ever clan haku is/was in ur main 2 chakra nature’s would be wind and water to create ice and u can work urself from there with CP(chakra points) and u can put them into what ever nature the questioner said u have but most people will only start off with one nature and work your way up to having more but only a select few that the questioner does not selct get negan and can master all the elements but if ur not that like 1/9999 people then u can only master like 4 if there are 6 chakra nautres all to gether but if there are 99 u can only master like 97 if there are only 5 u can only master like 3 or something along them lines the jutsu them selves will have JP(jutsu points) so each time u lvl u get them and put into what ever jutsu u fell like putting it into that u can perform at the time and at some point in the game u can reset them but each jutsu has a limmiter so no putting every single JP u get sense u left the academy into shadow clones to completely over welm ur opponent by over comming him/her with like 1million clones of your self that take like 5

admin answers:

A perfect naruto mmorpg would be one like this: It is exactly like naruto ( like there are all the characters and stuff and things happen just like in naruto) but the thing is that you make and design your own character. After it is made you go through your brand new ninja life just in the naruto world. If that game is created I would pay 500 dollars to play it.

Susan asks…

What do you think Illegal immigrants a financial burden on Michigan ?

For several months now, alarm bells in Lansing have been ringing uncontrollably as we are warned of the state’s impending financial collapse should we fail to balance our budget and keep the cost of doing state business down.

Unfortunately, many in Lansing are only willing to pay lip service to the problem rather than finding solutions to it. I choose to focus on the concerns of the taxpayers from the 74th district and their agenda, rather than the Lansing agenda of raising taxes and partisan bickering. For this reason, I am happy to join other Republicans in support of the Taxpayer’s Agenda. An important part of this Taxpayer’s Agenda is the creation of several task forces to address the issues that many in Lansing choose to neglect.

I am excited to be a member of the Border Security and Immigration Reform, which focuses on homeland security and seeks ways to limit the negative impact that illegal immigration has on Michigan’s economy.

Taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidize illegal aliens in this state, and state programs are the vehicle that allows this. Medicaid costs have been increasing by millions annually, and the last thing we need is the added cost of care for people who should not be here in the first place.

Other Midwest states have gone to a system where a Medicaid applicant must prove their citizenship before receiving assistance. After doing so, those states have seen a 5 percent reduction in Medicaid expenditures. If Michigan were to implement a similar program and achieve similar results, we could see a drastic decrease in Medicaid spending totaling roughly $125 million.

Illegal immigrants who go to hospitals for emergency care rarely have the means to pay for their care. However, due to current laws, hospitals are not allowed to deny treatment based on inability to pay. As a result, the hospitals must count this “free” care as a loss, therefore passing the cost of this care onto other paying customers.

Spectrum Health incurred charges of more than $700,000 last year alone on illegal immigrant health care, and they expect that figure to increase this year.

Michigan’s employment environment is also polluted with illegal immigrants. In fact, there have been several instances in which new projects have been hijacked by illegal immigrant workers. In the Thumb area of Michigan, the Harvest Wind Farm project so highly touted by Gov. Jennifer Granholm was being staffed by a contractor who hires not only out of state workers, but employs illegal immigrants as well.

After first chiding the Republicans for forming the Immigration and Homeland Security Task Force, the Democrats have recently introduced legislation embracing some of our ideas. However, their half-hearted attempts don’t stand up under scrutiny.

Although they say they want to punish employers who hire illegals, they would only do so by canceling state contracts with these companies and requiring them to pay back incentives. No other punitive action would be taken. This is unacceptable.

The latest task force hearing held in Jenison focused on homeland security threats that Michigan is now plagued with because of illegal immigration. Testimony included representatives from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Ottawa County Sheriffs, 9/11 families for a more secure America; and Jon DeWitte from Congressman Peter Hoekstra’s office.

The discussion centered on of law enforcement personnel, security officials and other concerned community members. We were successful in our mission to conduct a frank discussion in ways that we can end the unnecessary burden of illegal immigrants on our state.

As my colleagues and I travel the state we look forward to hearing ideas from a diverse background.

– Rep. David Agema represents the 74th House District. He lives in Grandville.

Mark asks…

How do you insert voice recordings in a google docs presentation?

We’re doing a project using google docs ? Were making a PowerPoint on google docs and i don’t know how to insert my voice recordings… It’s due tomorrow so I need to do it now..

admin answers:

Answer: The short answer is no. Right now, Google Presentations do not support importing audio. Also, PowerPoint files added to Google Presentations will be torn to shreds…no graphics, animations, transitions, audio, templates, etc…all gone. So moving your PowerPoint files into Google Docs for storage is one thing, converting them to Google presentations is another, and is not recommended for any reason, sorry

Robert asks…

Is there way to download google docs and save on computer?

These are not my own google docs.
There is a fanfiction novel I’ve read online that I would really like to have on my computer in case anything happens and the links no longer work. Is there a way to download the doc files to either pdf or doc files and save them on my computer from the links?

admin answers:

Yes there is! I have had to make PDFs from web pages before. The problem is that it PDFs the entire page. You will need Firefox and a plug in called “PDF It”. To get them just use Google. There are tons of plug ins available out there. You can start with my recommendations and then go from there until you find one that works for you.

Plugin: PDF It

The use is simple. Just go to the desired page, click Tools from the Top toolbar, and select the plug in. Then it gives you the option to download the entire page or visible area. In my experiences, sometimes it doesn’t work, but all you have to do is keep trying it until you get the desired effect.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

May 26, 2012

Mandy asks…

messed up military exp read?

read this tell me if it was messed up or not

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in the Delayed Entry Program for the United States Marine Corps (DEP).

I have to meet the physical requirements of the USMC, so they sent me down to Portland for my physical and ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery – A ****ing annoying but simple test).

After I passed that with flying colors, they took us (roughly 20) back to the hotel where we ate, went swimming, played PS3/360, hung out with hot Airforce chicks, and made fun of the National Guardsmen. :D

Anyways, after we had our fill of fun, my roomate and I went outside and smoked a couple ciggs, played hackysack, and went to bed.

At 4 ****ing o’clock that morning, we have to wake up, we go to the front lobby, have an all-you-can-eat bacon, sausage, egg, cereal, pancake, and fruit breakfast, then got on the bus to Portland MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station).

We go in, I get my ass chewed out by the Gunny (Gunnery Sergeant) because my name tag was on the outside of my hoody. After that I go in for my physical. This is where the REAL fun begins.

I got my picture taken, blood pressure read, hearing tested, vision, and then talked to the head doctor, who asked me about past injuries and scars.

THEN they make us (like, 15 of us) strip down to our skivvies, and do the “duck walk” across the room. 20 minutes of freaky-ass exercises later, the doctor takes us into his examination room one-by-one, and after each person came out, they looked slightly less-happy than when they went in.


So they call my name, and I go in (still in my boxers). He asks me to sit down on the table, and I do.

He listens for my heart, gets my total body fat %, looka in my eyes, ears, and mouth, then says, “Alright, take off your underwear”.

So I do, and he starts grabbing my now shriveled nuts (it’s cold in the MEPS building!) and then places his forefinger and middle finger on my groin and tells me to cough. I do, and then he says “Okay.”, so I started putting my boxers back on.

He wasn’t having that.

He said, “Turn around, bend over, and spread your cheeks.”.

I feared for my brown-cherry, but did as he said. He again said, “Okay.” and told me to put my boxers back on.

I then walked out of that room so fast I nearly tripped on my feet.

I got dressed and went to the next station.

Which wasn’t really any better.

This Cambodian guy was like, “oh here, take this cup and follow me”.

The ****er watches me while I TRY pissing in a ****ing cup, and won’t take his eyes off my Leeroy Jenkins, ya dig? So I ask him why he was checking my meat out, and he says he has to do it to make sure I’m not using an “Artificial Urination Device”.

I pissed in that cup like nobody has pissed before. I filled that ****er up to the brim and walked with honor to the (HOT) asian chick who was going to seal my urine.

They took my blood to test for the AID’s, and I got the results back. Negative. I don’t have AID’s ;3.

I ended up waiting for 10 more hours, watching Full Metal Jacket on the TV, and playing Pool.

At like, 7 pm my ride got there and I fell asleep in the van, feeling violated and abused.

I ****ing LOVE Portland MEPS.

What happens when you are first diagnosed with Diabetes Type II?

I am 29 and I am going to be tested for Diabetes soon. Here are some of the things happening.

I am seeing spots, and my vision is somewhat blurred. I can’t really see objects that aren;t close. Also (not sure if this has to do with it) My eyes always feel like theres fluid in them. Its a weird feeling.

I have tingling in my feet, especially when I sit. Its in my hands and it tingles incredibley in the left hand every morning when I wake up.

I don’t pee alot, accept at night after I’ve gone to bed. I wake up 3 times at least to pee. And again, not that this may have anything to do with it but, it always smells like cereal….?

So, my question is, if this is diabetes, what will happen? WIll they give me medications? Btw, yes I am overweight, and thats probably why I have it. I started seeing these floaters a onth ago and made an eye appointment (app. is next week) and after some research got concerned that it could be diabetes. So I started eating healthy and exercising (sad that it takes something so dangerous to motivate some people) and have lost 25lbs, but still have a ton (not literally) to go. Will loosing all of the extra weight help at all? Will I still need meds? I’m fine with medication, I want to do everything possible to get better.
I did mention that I get up a lot to urinate. I also go a lot in the day, I just didnt mention that because I drink a lot of water… I figured it may have something to do with that.

I know blurred vision is a sympton of HBP, but tingling, never heard/read that. Both ARE symptoms of diabetes.

First of all it is a MISCONCEPTION that diabetes is cause by being overweight. Recent research by the BDA has found that up to 20% of type 2 diabetics are overweight. Type 1 Diabetics tend to be younger but it can develop in anyone, this type of diabetes is due to a problem with the production of insulin, where as type 2 is a problem with the utilisation of sugar in the body it tends to run in families and is more likely to develop if you are overweight, but not everyone who is overweight and has a family tendancy for diabetes will develop it.
Sorry on to your question yes it could be diabetes, you doctor will do either a Glucose tolerance test or a HBa1 test the first measures how glucose is absorbed by taking blood before you have eaten (fasting blood sugar level) and then you will be given a drink with a measured amount of sugar in it and blood will be taken at intervals and the behaviour of the glucose level noted. HBa1 measures the average blood glucose level over the last 6 -8 weeks (names may vary depending where you live). |The doctor may also do a finger prick test and check the blood glucose level there and then as both the other two need to be sent to a lab for the results. If diabetes is confirmed you will be given advice on diet,exercise and medication. You will either be advised to get a blood glucose monitor or have one given to you and told how and when to check your levels.
Diabetes can be managed in various ways and depends on how severe your symptoms are and will include one or more of the following change in diet( No foods are banned but you will be encouraged to eat a healthy varied diet) more exercise and medication, normally tablets but sometimes type 2 diabetics need Insulin (not often) You may find that you changing to a healthy diet and exercising that you may not need drugs. There is a huge wealth of knowledge of diabetes about these days and it can be confusing but you will soon work out what foods affect your blood glucose levels and can avoid or limit them. I found using the Glycemic Index levels of foods to help me decide what foods to eat/try and experimented as time past.
Well done for losing the weight and keep on exercising but believe me it is a lot easier to manage diabetes these days.

Daniel asks…

HELP!! high bloodpressure?!?


I’m 15, female, 174~cm and weigh 58kg. I am fairly healthy with a good size. Exercise 3 time a week, nothing serious (just for my health).
I’m not really sure how long I’ve had this but for quite some time.
I am prone to getting head rushes, sometimes I’m just sitting down and I sill get them.
I have actually passed out from this maybe two or three times.

What happens:
- things start to spin/tilt in my head
- I have to walk very slowly and/or grab a hold of something so I won’t fall.
- I get tunnel vision or more common… blackout vision (like a darkness creeps in from the corner of my eyes)
- it feels as if I have pressure inside my head.

I have headaches sometimes (sometimes accompanied by nosebleed), I have had an extreme, stabbing headache that lasted for a while.
I think my headaches are more to the left of my head, I can sometimes feel it throbbing.
As I can see, there is no connection to this and my activities.

P.S. I wear glasses but this started way back when I still had perfect vision.

admin answers:

Go to the doctor to make sure it isn’t serious.. But the EXACT thing happens to me very often. I’ve been to the docor several times about this but my blood pressure is normal.. They say it has something to do with my sinuses and its nothing serious, but I don’t know. But try experimenting with your diet, it may have something to do with your sugar intake. I say this because with me, I’ve noticed that the more things I eat that have more sugar in it, the more I get thooseee ^^ symptoms. I’m not sure what it is… But if you haven’t been to the doctor go just to make sure its nothing serious.

Michael asks…

Apart from google scholar, are there any good search engine for free professional and good academic resources?

Apart from google scholar, are there any good search engine for free professional and good academic resources like some papers or works?
Iam going to write my paper (12000 words) in this summer but I only know how to use google scholar and sometimes it is not enough.

admin answers:

Many of them depend on the specific field. I could point you to one for astronomy and physics, but that might not be helpful. You could stop by a university library and ask the reference librarian to help you find papers.
