I graduated from UCF about seven months ago and I was lucky enough to find a job that was close to where my Mom lives soon after. I needed to save up some money, so I have been living in her spare room since then. It is not that bad, but obviously when you are a single young man, living with your Mother is going to cramp your style. I have the money to start looking at apartments for rent in Tampa FL, but I am not going to be able to afford what I really want from the looks of it right now. I would really love to live on the beach, or at the least within walking distance of it. Obviously I am going to want to check out the girls in their swimsuits, there is not anything wrong with that. I was looking at how practical it would be to live in Clearwater Beach, but it is not very close to where I have been working. Obviously I do not want to have to drive half an hour to get to work every morning and then drive another half hour to get back home in the evening. In fact I would love it if I could roll out of bed, take a shower and get to work in half that time or less. At the moment I am spending about ten or fifteen minutes going to work and back, depending on how the traffic is on a particular day. I would prefer it if I could stay in that area, but without living with my Mom obviously. That is a big deal, because it is hard for me to get out of the bed in the morning. You have to think about a lot of factors when you get your own place.Read more
My brother in law and I have started to look around for places where we can do different types of fishing. Obviously we want to fish in both the bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. We managed to fix up an old shrimp boat that we found derelict after one of the hurricanes. It was considered abandoned property I guess, because the guy who owned it got his insurance money and forgot it. We fixed it up so that you can live on it for short periods. We even got Louisiana satellite internet because that seemed like the best way to get the emergency alerts and information. Like most people I am brave on a calm sea, but when the waves get big and scary I want to get my feet on high and dry land. I really want to have information about the weather as far in advance as is possible, but I did not think that I could justify the expense of a radar set. We are looking for a nice place to fish from and we are thinking that maybe we should look for something on or near Lake Pontchatrain. That is not that far from the places that I frequent and so long as the traffic on the causeway is not terrible I can get back to the house in a pretty reasonable amount of time. The trick is to find a good place for both purposes. You want to be able to hunt and fish without getting too far away from where you need to be at 8 AM on a Monday morning. That is not that difficult here in this state, especially when you are living and working in the parts of the area where I am at this point in time. So we should be able to figure it all out.Read more
Determining when you need a new septic tank can often feel like you’re playing psychic. Oftentimes, a damaged system can keep working until one day, it suddenly fails – and you’re stuck with tons of repairs, a yard full of septic tank cleaners and a massive invoice. Septic tanks are generally quite hardy, and can last up to three years before they need to be pumped but preventive maintenance and drain cleaning in Bergen County can certainly help avoid these bills. However, a damaged tank can be quite difficult to fix; add years of wear and tear on top of that, and it often makes more sense just to buy a new one altogether.
As previously mentioned, septic systems will only need to be pumped every three years, or even longer. However, if you think you’ve needed to pump a lot more than usual, then it might be time to replace it with a totally new system, as it may be a symptom that you and your family have outgrown your old tank. Go out to the landscape surrounding your septic system and examine the water. Are there any puddles that have collected on the ground? Does the ground seem constantly moist, even when it hasn’t rained for some time? That’s a big indicator that your septic system is leaking out water. If the leak is along the ports, a septic tank professional can easily fix it; however, if the damage has occurred on the tank itself, then it might be time to consider upgrading to a new tank, as these repairs are costly and time-consuming.
While you’re checking the ground, see if any trees surrounding your septic tank system have grown larger over the years. Many professionals report seeing tanks that have been damaged by growing tree roots. If there’s been a change in your landscape, forget calling a tree removal service – contact a septic professional to see if they can install a smaller tank or a new one elsewhere on your property. These simple steps by themselves can help prevent any major septic tank overflow!Read more
I am a pretty competitive person in most anything. I love playing cards, board games, pickup games outside, and so much more. My two cousins are the same when it comes to the inside games, but they are not in good enough shape to play basketball or baseball outside. I decided to challenge them to get healthier, figuring a challenge by me would go a long way since we are so competitive with each other. I even told them about nutritionstrategy.com, which is a site that I visit regularly because it is filled with so many great articles about nutrition as well as exercise.
I knew that the site would help both of them, but I also knew that it would have to come at a high price to me for them to play along. Since this was their health we are talking about, I let them set the wager. They had to do my yard work for a year if they lost, and I had to do both of theirs if they won. Since I don’t mind mowing grass or shoveling snow, I agreed. Like I said, their health was at stake, and I wanted them to be around for many more years.
Well, the challenge was the right way to go about this. They hit the challenge hard, and they both started losing weight. Since they were pretty big, the weight really came off fast at first. I asked them what they were doing, and they told me that they are walking several miles a day, plus they are making sure they are eating enough fiber in their diets. Well, I am happy to say that I lost the bet. However, they are not making me do their yard work. They have both thanked me numerous times for making them change. We all came out winners in this!Read more
My husband was the one who took care of keeping track of all of our financial records over the years. But when we passed away, I found myself at a loss as to how to keep up with it myself. I don’t have a good head for numbers, but he was wonderful with them. Not sure what to do, I asked my new lady friends on a widow’s forum what I should do. Almost all of them said that I should start out quickly with Quicken 2016 to make it much easier on myself. I typically do not use programs on the computer, so I was not sure what to do.
My husband did all the work by hand when he recorded our finances. I sat down with a cup of coffee in my husband’s favorite old chair and began going through the records. I tried to make sense of what I was seeing. Some of it seemed rather easy, but then I found myself wondering why he did certain things. Not because I felt that he did it wrong. Like I said, he had a great head for numbers, and it was me who was having trouble making sense of what I was seeing. I even tried to keep notes as I went along. I spent a few hours going over things, and it became pretty apparent that I had just scratched the surface and I was not getting very far with comprehension.
Wondering if I should listen to my new friends, I went to the Quicken website to look everything over. I was able to download and pay for the software just then. I felt that if they could do it, I could do it, too. It was much easier to use the program than it was to try to learn my husband’s handwritten records.Read more
I got a late start in life. I chose to marry young, and then we had our first child of 6, when I was just 18. Then, the kids just kept coming, and that is how we wanted it. I took care of our home and children in whatever way I could, while my husband worked. But they’re adults now, and I wanted a business of my own. I’ve learned many things through trial an error, especially the online world. I ended up learning how to buy Twitter followers not long ago, and then I waited to see what the full result of my decision would be. I felt like I had so much to learn, but I am committed.
All of my kids use social media. I was always too busy for that. But after I started a business, I was told repeatedly that every business needs to be online and customer engaged. This means making sure to communicate to new and past customers at all times so that they don’t forget about what you are selling. My oldest child sat down with me and helped me get started on Twitter. It was interesting learning how to summarize things that I have to say because you only get 150 characters to post everything you need to say in one post on the site.
When I was not getting very far with getting people to follow me, my son said that I should do what all the big celebrities do, which is to pay a company to have people follow my account. He said that no company or celebrity should bumble along looking like no one is interested in what they have to say. So, getting more followers makes your account more popular. I thought it sounded amusing, but it turns out that he was right. The customers began noticing me after I had it done.Read more
It is pretty crazy how many states have passed legislation that legalizes the use of cannabis recently. We’re in a pretty good place in human history I think, but still not out of the waters. I think that this is a pretty big precedent though. Anyway, I want to figure out what the top rated vape is and I want to check it out, to see if it is something that I might want to buy.
I didn’t smoke for about a decade, but I miss it. I never stopped missing it. I don’t think it is really habit forming, so much as it is just fun to use. Anyway, I am going to buy a vaporizer, if i am going to start using seriously. I think it would be a lot better to use a vaporizer than to smoke it like I used to. I used to just use cigar wrappers, and they are probably about as unhealthy as you can get.
I hate the smell of burning cigars these days though. They just smell so offensive, so I don’t think I could do it that way again, even if I wanted to. But instead, I would like to find a way to smoke that is not so harmful to the respiratory tract. I think that vaporizing might be the right way to go. That is because it does not actually set the plant material on fire, and I think that is important. There are a lot of nasty byproducts of a combustion reaction that you probably don’t want to inhale. At least, speaking for myself, I know that I do not want to inhale that stuff. Rather, I think I would be a lot better off by using a vaporizer. So I am going to check into getting one.Read more
My last period of the day at school is a computer class and it is pretty boring. They teach you how to use word processors and spreadsheets, and all of that sort of thing. It is really kind of nonsense, considering I know how to use all of those programs for the most part. But anyway, I am checking out this site airplanegames365.com to see what sort of games they have on it. It seems like there might be some pretty fun games on here to play, which might be able to keep my mind occupied to the end of this class period, which is also the end of my day at school.
Anyway, I say that it might have some pretty fun games, mostly based on there being a whole lot of games on this site. Not sure how many so far, but it looks like maybe 100. I kind of want to count them, but it might take awhile, and I would rather spend my time playing games, rather than counting how many games are available to play on this website. Seems like a more productive use of my time, if you ask me.
But anyway, I am going to check out a couple of games. It is so hard to choose a game to play. There are just so many of them, that I don’t know where to start. Kind of an annoying problem to have, but at the same time, it is a silly problem to complain about. Maybe I will just pick one at random, and see how I like it. I will give it a few minutes, and then if I don’t like it, then I will move on to another game. I just have to make sure that the teacher does not see me playing games.Read more
I began working in home security after a friend of mine was a victim of a home invasion that left them psychologically scarred and unable to leave their own home for fear of the outside world. After that horrible occurrence I came to a startling realization, a burning need that was stoked by my anger at my friend’s situation, that I wanted to help protect people. I didn’t want to become a police officer but I did want to do something that mattered. Another close friend who worked for ADT home security systems in Augusta inspired me to go into the home security business.
I’ve learned quite a bit in the two years that I have started working in the industry but one thing that I’ve learned which has struck me powerfully is the feeling of vulnerability that many victims of home robberies have. It’s a traumatic experience that leaves them shaken to the core as the very sanctity of the place that they call home has been utterly violated. The anger that I feel for what has been done to these people leaves me feeling helpless as I wish I could do more to help put their minds at ease.
I can’t believe we still live in a society where there are men and women eagerly waiting to take advantage of someone else. They wait within the cracks of our culture lurking in the shadows until the moment to strike presents itself. The majority of the time they break into our homes when we’re not even there to protect it – which is where ADT and myself come into the picture. I want to make sure that even if they do manage to break through the security that will guard your home that they will be caught thanks to the cameras we always encourage clients to install.Read more
With Cox Cable TV being one of the very last cable companies in the industry, it’s no wonder that we are running out of options for quality providers in many states. For the longest time I lived in an area which only had one provider and I thought that the prices they offered were an industry standard and had no thought to the fact that there might be something cheaper out there for me. That might as well have been the truth since I didn’t have any other service available to call and request a price check from.
Unfortunately these companies are quickly becoming a thing of the past as are out right refusing to adapt to the changing nature of the market. With Netflix and Youtube both beginning to show us consumers that entertainment doesn’t have to be offered in the inflexible way which it has always been delivered, they are two models of success that are not just being providers like their competition is but instead are becoming producers of high quality content. YouTube is especially an interesting case as they are investing in small studios who want are creating all kinds of unique content on a micro scale for us to consume.
I think this is going to be the future of media and if the cable companies do nothing to catch up any time soon they are going to begin losing customers to those of us who have devices like Roku, PS4 and others. Even Amazon is getting in on some of the action by providing their own streaming model service as well a device in which they are able to stream it from. Since the cable companies already have boxes in every customers home, if wouldn’t be very hard for them to create a similar content producing business model.Read more
I would like to be a home owner, and I think that living in a house would be the best thing for my family. I had worked for years to save up money for a down payment on a house. I was close to my goal, but I had some unexpected medical expenses that pretty much destroyed all of my savings. It has been rather depressing to get so close to a goal, and then to have it destroyed. But I still have hope, and I think that USDA loans could be the best option for my current situation.
One of the things that I need to figure out, when it comes to being eligible for a USDA loan, is what the income threshold is for such loans. I know that your income has to be below a certain level, but I do not know exactly what that level is. I think that it might depend on the area, and what the cost of living is in that particular area. At least, that would make a lot of sense to me.
I am hoping that this type of loan will cover new houses, or houses that are currently under construction. I would much rather purchase a new house, as opposed to buying one that has been lived in before. I would just feel a lot better about my purchase, if I knew that the house was new. That way, there would not be any hidden defects that I might later run into. It seems like a better investment in every way. I am currently living close to some fairly rural areas, so I think that I should not have a lot of trouble finding a qualifying property. The bigger issue, in my opinion, is whether I will qualify for the loan.Read more
It really is not that hard to get a chauffeur’s license here in Toronto. The really big part is just being able to pass a background check. Not really sure how that matters for the license. For example I can see why the guy who owned a limousine service in toronto would not want to hire a felon or such to drive a car that might be worth as much as a small house. I do not really see what the municipal government would care, although obviously there is a public safety aspect to this in some regards. You would have a lot of people in the vehicle in some of these limos. The largest ones must carry around a dozen people at one time and of course they make stretched vans and party buses that can probably carry even more people at once. In the USA I think you would probably need a class A Commercial Driver’s license to drive a vehicle with a large passenger capacity.
Obviously you would want to do a background check on a guy before you gave him the key to a big van with fifteen people in it. It could be a crazy person perhaps, some guy who might do some crazy thing with all of these people in his care. Or I would guess that you would want to be sure it was not someone with a number of different medical conditions which could potentially cause them to lose control over their conscious thought. That does not sound right honestly, but I mean stuff like epilepsy where a guy might have a seizure while he is driving. I am not sure what the rules about that are when you are talking about driving a private vehicle, but they surely have rules against it for commercial vehicles.Read more
- Whenever I go to an H&M, there are racks and racks of clothes, but online there is practically nothing!
The other day, I saw a really cute blazer I wanted (There were about 25 different blazers), but online, there are only 3.
I am just wondering why this is?
Answer by Alice
H&Ms online store serves the purpose of only showing the newest arrivals and basic things they have stock in their store 24/7 such as camisoles and socks.
- Jacob is h inches tall. Write an expression for each height. Then evaluate each expression if Jacob is 63 inches tall.
Starting with this, I still don’t understand like this one:
10 inches more than 1/3 Jacob’s height
b. 19 inches less than twice Jacob’s height.
Please help. Am I supposed to multiply or something?
Answer by Sayee
a. 10 + ( (1/3)x h)
b. (2xh) – 19
subsitute h=63 you will get required ans.
Note: x means multiply!
- I want to test my car and therefore I need highway that is capable for the test. I want to accelerate gently from 0 to around 225 km/h using a regular sedan (not sport) that is not fast (say, 15 seconds for 0-100 km/h). Anyone can include the formula?
Here in Indonesia there are only a few short ranges highway and I want to test my car in the safest highway of choice possible.
PS: You can make some assumptions.
Answer by just_eon
Key: your car’s acceleration is 6.67 km/h^2
Formula: a = dv/dt
You’ll need to maintain constant acceleration, while anything else constant, and you’ll hit 225 kph in 33.75 sec.
With v = 225 kph and t = 33.75 sec, you need a highway with minimum range of s = 2.11 km
- The full problem is: Let h be the height of a rectangle formed between the shaded region above. Write the height of the rectangle as a function of x. The graph shows a parabola with the equation f1(x) = 4x -x^2 and a line with the equation f2(x) = 2x. The region between where the lines intersect is shaded.
Answer by Mary
I’m sorry I’m having a hard time visualizing where the rectangle is. It says it is “between the shaded region”. Does that mean it is inside the shaded region, slanted? If so we need a little more information, like where it touches the parabola. Or, does it mean that the intersections are the corners of rectangle. If so the height h is fixed, h=4, not a function of x.
- If a chemical compound starts with an H that doesn’t have a 2 next to it, does that mean that the compound is an acid?
For example, HC2H3O2. What is that?
Answer by orisori
If H does not have a number next to it, there is only 1 H atom.
But in the HC2H3O2 there are 4 H atoms (the 1 H atom in the front + the H3 = 4 H atoms.
I don’t that that having an H means it’s an acid.
