Describe how the data gathered during the mission help scientists to better understand the universe. Be sure to include details describing how the mission progressed, the data gathered, and the end of the mission. If your chosen mission is ongoing, provide details on the current state of that mission.

Long years ago I was playing a game Landing on the Moon. It used a line containing the amount of fuel, speed, height. You mustn’t run out of the fuel by consuming it and also avoid lifting up and crashing down.

How do I play with Travor again after killing him in the final mission of GTA 5?

I chose to kill Trevor instead of Michael or the No one option on the last mission and I’ve tried to reply the last mission choosing not to kill everyone else and i still cant play with him?

Mark asks…

Call of Duty World at War freezes at every mission?

Whenever I transition from one mission to another the system freezes on my xbox 360, so I turn it off and turn it back on and choose the mission from mission select and it works fine. Is this problem happening to anyone else, I tried whipping the disk? Is it the Disk problem or the game system’s problem?

admin answers:

Does it happen with other games?if so it’s the system, if not then it’s the game. Contact the store you bought it from and then do an exchange if it is the disk.

I have the same game but, on PS3 and it works fine.

Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language

February 15, 2014

Carol asks…

What is a good book to learn American Sign Language?

I am Deaf/Hearing Impaired with a Cochlear Implant, and English was my first language. I would like to learn ASL since it is so interesting, so I am interested into buying a book.

I was thinking of this book, but not too sure yet:

But do you have any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

admin answers:

That looks pretty good for a book, but, if possible, it would be much better to go to a school or take lessons at some sort of centre.

If taking lessons, private or classes, is possible, then you should start by looking places up in your phone book. Places that have to do with Sign Language, deaf/hearing impaired people might either hold classes or have possible information on where you could go.

If you are unable to take lessons, then that book would probably be an OK start for learning some of the basics, but you won’t be learning how to have actual conversations well.

Ken asks…

How do you deal with your ADD?

I tend to forget to do things like turn off the lights and don’t pay attention to detail sometimes. I was doing rosetta stone to learn another language and I do all 11 lessons at once and it was driving me crazy to concentrate and I would get things wrong that I knew the answer to. So I’m pretty sure I have adult ADD. Is there anything I can do about it besides taking medication?

admin answers:

Is it a disorder? Does it impair your daily functioning? Did you feel that way before you started labeling yourself ADD?

I was diagnosed with ADHD, which means a doctor talked to me for 5 seconds and gave me some meds. I felt like a slug. I couldn’t think, I couldn’t sleep, I lost weight (I’m scrawny by nature so that was really rough) and I felt awful all the time. Even when I used sleep aids which had never made me groggy in the past and remembered to eat, I still felt horrible.

Things that have helped me immensely:

-Take a look at your diet. When I have more magnesium in my diet I am much calmer and happier. I also have an easier time focusing. When I take flax oil regularly I also think more clearly. I don’t take some capsules and feel like Superman two seconds later, rather, after a week or two of regularly taking a few supplements and/or paying more attention to nutrition, I feel better. If you notice something has improved after you;ve taken a supplement for at least a week (mood, focus, etc) then that means you weren’t getting enough of that nutrient before. It’s not magic, it’s just treating your body right.

-Are you getting enough sleep? I need 9-10 hours a night. I rarely get more than 6, but when I get those 9 hours I’m a totally different person. (I’m 17 so I have a really high need for sleep and a really low chance of getting it.) Sleep deprivation makes it harder to focus. If you need 8 hours of sleep and get 7 every night, that sleep debt builds up. You can ‘pay back’ your sleep debt over time, which is good. Sleep is important. Don’t minimize it.

-Work out. Get your heart beating and get sweaty at least every other day. You can do bodyweight exercises which require no equipment. This also makes a huge difference in your ability to focus, and it improves the quality of your sleep.

-Avoid caffeine and other stimulants completely or as much as you possibly can. Your mind doesn’t need any help speeding up.

I also have problems remembering little details sometimes. My mind wanders, I fidget, I forget obvious things, I lose track of time, etc. I’ve done more through what I mentioned above combined with strength of will than I ever did with medication.

Two years ago, I took AP American History, immediately fell behind, and dropped the course two months in. Last year, I took the same course again, got a 5 (that’s a perfect score) on the exam and an A- in the class. According to my teacher, if my final essay hadn’t sucked (it focused on one of my weak points and the prompt was worded strangely) I would have gotten an A. There was no A+ in that class.

Two years ago I was on Concerta and that directly led to my abysmal class performance. Last year I was drug-free and feeling good.

I find that when I can manage it, scheduling to a rather extreme degree is the only way I can stay on track. Establish routines as much as you can, learn to recognize when you start to go off-track, and really engage yourself in everything you’re doing. Yes, I’m an actual ADHD person, though I don’t believe in the disorder myself. (Personality type? Yes. Disorder, like BPD or OCD? No.) You are a self-aware person and as such you’re capable of changing your actions.

But let’s look at this another way. We ADD/ADHD/whatever people have high levels of ideation which we can use to our advantage, if we can tame it. Maybe Rosetta Stone wasn’t right for you- I found it boring. Yes, I have a very low tolerance for boring things though I’ve learned to deal with them. However I consider the fact that my mind leaps around a lot to be a great advantage, since 95% of the time I can control where it goes, or at least direct it. There are plenty of downsides (I’d like it if my brain would just shut up sometimes, I wish I didn’t have to devote so much mental energy to sitting still and not doodling or daydreaming, etc) just like with everything else in life, but why would you take medication to get rid of an advantage?

George asks…

Why would people continue to insist on people first language when the group expresses they don’t want it?

Blind people say that they don’t want to be referred to as “people with blindness” “visually impaired” or “person with a visual impairment.”

Autistic people do not want to be referred to as “people with autism.” They say their autism is part of their identity and “person with autism” separates autism from the person. Yet a university professor takes off 15 points when one of her students use the term “autistic.”

Same goes for the deaf.

Why would people continue to insist on people first language for these groups if the people who have these conditions made it clear they don’t want to be referred to as “person with _____”?
@pioneer_grrrl1979: I am not talking about people with epilepsy. I am talking about the blind, deaf and autistic people.

admin answers:

I have no idea what you’re talking about. I am a person with epilepsy–and notice I did put person first language. I also researched what people with autism/autism rights groups call themselves, since you specifically wanted to know.

Generalizing about ‘the group’ ignores that there are people with disabilities who do use person first language to refer to ourselves.

It’s obvious that you are not one of us. And you’re just an observer. Plus not a very good observer either.

Yes, you are talking about people with various kinds of disabilities. I happen to be among them. And people with autism are another,. We consider ourselves person first. If you can’t deal with our being a ‘person first’. This is your problem. Not ours.

What university would honestly take off 15 points if a person uses a term—without even first giving the person a chance to at least attempt to first explain the utilized term in context of their written paper? .

Some written research papers do require the using of terms which are now considered racially/ethnically stereotypical.

For example ‘To Kill a Mockingbird” is chock-full of now-stereotypical racial terms. We do not hear/use these terms in our current day society. They are considered offensive to contemporary society merely by themselves.

But the terms as printed in the book would have to be printed in a paper to accurately and properly cite certain quotes from the characters in this particular book

Telling me (or other people) what we’re supposed to call ourselves–when you are apparently not even a part of ‘the group’ is absurd. I’ll call myself a person first, thank you very much.

Be honest and just admit if you’re in over your head with the question. .

Your Questions About Carnitine

February 4, 2014

Donna asks…

Hey i m going to the seaside and i want to train there really hard tell me some good supplements for training?

I want to use L-carnitine for weight loss,and also thinking for buying amino acids and i want something for endurance and strenght please help

admin answers:

Eat well but only when hungry and not more than thrice a day. Include plenty of uncooked vegetables and fruits in each meal, preferably 50%. To have more satisfaction out of ur food, Chew each morsel at least 32 times. This will also activate ur body to generate signals of hunger/fullness. Obey these signals. Do not go on fast or starvation diet.

Nothing other than water in between.

No special diet, call it by any name or program helps as one cannot adopt them on permanent basis. Diet pills are chemicals and per se bad and shud be avoided unless the doc considers it necessary looking at ur condition.

Take light exercises and brisk walks for 30 min.regularly preferably on empty stomach and twice a day. Do not overdo.

U will achieve what u have not even dreamt and that too in a reasonable time and hassle free. If aiming at weight reduction, it is desirable not to go beyond 1lb/week.

Be patient and not in a hurry.

U cannot choose spots for reduction.

This schedule can be adopted on permanent basis to lead a healthy life and maintain weight.

Chris asks…

Can people with heart problems drink fuze?

I’m 14 female and I have SVT (Supraventricular tachycardia). Can I drink fuze drink or will it lead to palpitations? The ingredients are filtered water, fruit juice, malic acid, natural tropical dragonfruit flavor with other natural flavors, veggie juice, garcinia cambogia, rind extrat, ascorbic acid, acesulfame potassium, sucralose, L-carnitine, chromium polynicotinate.

admin answers:

Fuze is very healthy. It’s packed full of vitamins and minerals and certain flavors have L-Carnitine and Super Citrimax which aid in controlling appetite so you don’t over eat and also boost metabolism, and some flavors have electrolytes such as calcium and potassium. And the teas have enough antioxidants to equal two of your daily vegetable servings in one bottle.

There is no evidence to suggest that people with SVT should not drink it. Nevertheless, ask your doctor.

Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language

January 24, 2014

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’.

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

January 19, 2014

Mark asks…

Farewell to false love by sir walter raleigh? Who is it talking about?

In the poem farewell to false love by walter raleigh who is being described as a mortal boy with enemy to rest and all the other things in the poem? is it raleigh’s love, or the concept of false love or somethin else? any help on this poem much appreciated.

admin answers:

Here is the whole poem:

A Farewell to False Love
a poem by Sir Walter Raleigh

A Farewell to False Love

Farewell false love, the oracle of lies,
A mortal foe and enemy to rest,
An envious boy, from whom all cares arise,
A bastard vile, a beast with rage possessed,
A way of error, a temple full of treason,
In all effects contrary unto reason.

A poisoned serpent covered all with flowers,
Mother of sighs, and murderer of repose,
A sea of sorrows whence are drawn such showers
As moisture lend to every grief that grows;
A school of guile, a net of deep deceit,
A gilded hook that holds a poisoned bait.

A fortress foiled, which reason did defend,
A siren song, a fever of the mind,
A maze wherein affection finds no end,
A raging cloud that runs before the wind,
A substance like the shadow of the sun,
A goal of grief for which the wisest run.

A quenchless fire, a nurse of trembling fear,
A path that leads to peril and mishap,
A true retreat of sorrow and despair,
An idle boy that sleeps in pleasure’s lap,
A deep mistrust of that which certain seems,
A hope of that which reason doubtful deems.

Sith* then thy trains my younger years betrayed,[since]
And for my faith ingratitude I find;
And sith repentance hath my wrongs bewrayed*,[revealed]
Whose course was ever contrary to kind*:[nature]
False love, desire, and beauty frail, adieu.
Dead is the root whence all these fancies grew.

Sir Walter Raleigh

Here you have the answer:

Farewell false love, the oracle of lies,
A mortal foe and enemy to rest,
An envious boy, from whom all cares arise,
A bastard vile, a beast with rage possessed,
A way of error, a temple full of treason,
In all effects contrary unto reason *

It’s the absence of understanding of his life.
He says his life is a big and horrible mistake, which he despises.
Non acceptance of his inner self.
It’s a very sad and interrogative poem.

Best luck!

William asks…

Can a hunter capable of loving pets?

Can a person whose hobby is hunting is capable of having pets at home? Isnt it an irony?

admin answers:

Hi Sal,
A very philosophical question. A ladyfriend used to say to me, when discussing the need for this one special loving relationship, “this love should be such that it increases your love for everybody else”. I thought this was very profound, what she said. I think that there is a kind of selfish love that concerns itself with “myself and those that are connected with myself ONLY” and doesn’t care what happens to anyone or anything else. I think that this is the kind of love that hunters have for their pets. I’m not talking about people who shoot animals for food. Personally, I wouldn’t want to consume animal carcasses for food but some people feel that they need meat in order to survive. That, to me, is not the same thing as people that go out with lots of horses and packs of dogs and chase a poor helpless and terrified creature, totally outnumbered by the big host that is following it, for hours to absolute exhaustion, with no chance of escape, only to finally watch it being torn to pieces, while yet alive, by the dogs, just for the fun of it! This is nothing but cowardice and sadism, and sadism is, by definition, a form of perversion of the mind. Therefore the logical conclusion is that you have to be a pervert in order to enjoy this sort of cruel “sport”. There are quite a few highly educated, well-spoken and nicely dressed perverts walking around in suits!!!
As regards overpopulation, the human race is probably the most overpopulated species. Man forever encroaches on the habitat of the wildlife, squeezing them out of their homes. Then when they wander into his dwellings because they have no place else left to go, he complains that they are overpopulating! Or, he builds huge motorways through their lands and across the passages that they have used for thousands of years. Now they suddenly find that their territory has been dissected by this terrible death trap that they must cross at the peril of their lives. Man complains about them damaging his noisy, polluting, carbon-emitting vehicles!!! And then there’s the one about the “vermin”. That one really gets to me (I don’t actually carry that word in my vocabulary). A bit like the guy that goes out shooting magpies. Man’s greed, the intensification of agriculture, the use of monocultures, pesticides, etc has caused a huge decline in the variety and number of wild birds. Now apparently, according to this guy, magpies are a pest because they take the baby birds. Which is the bigger problem, the magpies or all the things man has done to destroy their habitat? Their they come, driving up with their 4×4′s, polluting the environment, in order to shoot the “vermin” that causes so much “damage”. By driving up in their big cars they cause more damage than all the “vermin” they have shot in a lifetime, together! (By the way, magpies have an important function to clear up all the carcasses of the animals hit by speeding cars and left dead by the roadside. If there were no more magpies, crows, etc, then these carcasses would be left to rot slowly and become very toxic and dangerous.)
I mean, how do you define a “vermin”??? Is it, by the amount of pollution they cause??? By the amount of destruction of the rain forest??? By the amount of oil spills in the sea??? By the amount of nuclear explosions??? By the amount of artificial diseases created??? By the amount of devastation through wars??? By the number of species extinct through them??? By the amount of climate change caused??? By the amount of poverty and misery through exploitation??? Etc??? Perhaps those that are so quick to label other species “vermin” should take an honest look at themselves and examine themselves for what they really are. Perhaps those that go out to shoot the “vermin” can start by first turning the guns on the biggest vermin… Perhaps then the world would become a happier place for the species that remain…


David asks…

is it true that actor danny glover blamed the haitian earthquake on global warming?

admin answers:

No he didn’t. If you actually listen to the audio (and ignore the headline) in the link below, he’s talking about the perils island nations are facing due to global warming (and sea level rise). Then he says:

“What happened in Haiti could happen to anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming,” Glover said. “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”

He never directly linked the earthquake to global warming, he was just talking about the perils facing island nations like Haiti in general. The earthquake is one example, effects from global warming are another. The latter we can do something about.

Anyway, he’s just an actor. Frankly whether or not he blamed the earthquake on global warming really doesn’t matter.
