Topics, such as families and in-laws, sexuality and intimacy, and communication strategies, are chosen by the couple according to their stated importance. Some preparatory work is completed before each session and these explorations become the basis for the discussions that follow. Typically, couples and I meet together for 6-8 sessions before the marriage ceremony or beginning of cohabitation, with 3 follow-up sessions in the first year of marriage or cohabitation. This is when theory becomes reality and surprising (and often difficult) developments can occur!

[ { "question": "Parents who experience the death of a baby often seek to validate their feelings-is what they feel normal and legitimate, or have they responded in an inappropriate manner?", "answer": "They often have many difficult decisions to make without previous experiences to guide them. Often, the grief and loss felt by parents when a baby dies during the pregnancy or in the first few months of life is not understood and/or accepted by society. Even friends and family members sometimes have difficulty understanding the depth of emotion and grief bereaved parents may by experiencing. Parents are often expected to just pick up the pieces and move on. Others, who have not seen or touched the baby, do not understand that a very real member of the family has died. Often the grief and loss felt by the parents is not understood. The baby is quickly forgotten by others, leaving the parents alone in their grief. The subsequent isolation may create difficulties in the expression of feelings, which can unnecessarily prolong the time of grieving. Share-Quad Cities, through mutual-help groups provides a strong, supportive atmosphere where members can share their experiences, thoughts and feelings. Parents learn that the deeply felt, long-lasting feelings are normal. They gain a sense of wholeness when they realize that their pain and grief is not unique but rather is something which nearly all bereaved parents feel." } ]

[ { "question": "Does anyone remember Gaw's Law?", "answer": "I'm looking for a copy of the text, but I can't use the Wayback Machine because I don't remember the web-host or address. I found this place via google search by way of \"Sylvannas\" making a reference to it. This is, perhaps . . . the most meta adventure for an ancient text I've ever been on. This is something that must be remembered and upheld through all RPG's as the key to surviving to become a classic like the GameFAQs RPG. NO CHEEZ WIZZING. (Named after the king of overpowered.) Cheez Whizzing is making your character an immortal God who can blow anything away in one hit and have absolutely no limitations. That is Cheese Whizzing. There are 2 classifications, really. Overpowering, and Cheese Whizzing. Avoid Cheese Whizzing at all costs, and try to do the same with overpowering. I've noticed some people in magic schools that are creating a little bit of ice at first, but are creating a glacier in a few hours. Overpowering is making your character stronger than all the others, but not 80,000 times stronger than the other characters like Cheese Wizz. That is law number one! The biggest RPG killer, in my opinion, is people who don't know the difference between what the poster knows, and what the character knows. Just because someone posts something doesn't always mean your character learns it. The poster learns it, but not the character." }, { "question": "Such as, if someone on the other side of the world were destroying a village, how would your character know?", "answer": "He wouldn't. I mean, you never hear this in an RPG. No, the main character has no clue what's going to happen, doesn't know that their is a big bad guy, and much less knows what he looks like, until the main character sees him. But then he doesn't necessarily know what he's planning. The smallest form of this is coincidence. Coincidence is having your character do something else because of a post, but it not being irregular to what the character would do. A coincidence would be, the person is wandering in a field, and then a post reveals a battle going on somewhere in a field. (Once again, to the poster.) You could have the character coincidentally end up heading towards the battle and seeing it. That is a small coincidence, to me. Not irregular at all, just a chance encounters. A bigger coincidence would be, a person is sneaking through a castle, then a conversation in the castle is revealed by someone else, which has some very big plot revealers. But the character just happened to be in front of the door to the place where the conversation was going, and heard it perfectly. That is a very large coincidence. Of all of these, I can take a few large coincidences, (Not very large, but large) And a lot of small coincidences. But I've seen too many times now the ''Poster knows, so character knows'' incidents. Please tell me if you agree, disagree, or agree with some of it. My ears are wide open for your comments on my beliefs. Always seek to improve your RPG playing abilities. This doesn't mean get yourself some cool new fire spell. This means improving the quality of your posts. This can be aided by trying to make the post easier to understand, punctuate and capitalize properly, and develop your own style of organizing your posts. I try to make my RPG post style defined, but it seems to go under a few small changes every once and a while. Your character doesn't always have to be special and different from everything else. Though that can be very interesting, if you are careful on how your character is different. Mine, for example, is just a Gaw. An unusually strong Gaw, but just a Gaw." }, { "question": "That doesn't keep me from doing good posts, though, does it?", "answer": "Role-play! It makes your posts more interesting to read. I mean, in an RPG in medieval times, you wouldn't have a person who talks like this. ''Yo, wassup dude!'' Also, you wouldn't be able to get rocket launchers and such in medieval times. That's something that should go under realism, though. Well, also try to give your character a personality. A flat, boring personality isn't good. Also, try to have the way your character acts affected by his past. That can be a very good thing. When you want to join an RPG or battle with a story, just don't jump in without a clue of what's happening. There are normally 2 good ways to get in. 1: Read all the posts to get familiar with the story. 2: Ask someone who's been in since the beginning or someone who knows what's going on for a summary of the story. Knowing the story will make your posts much better. When starting an RPG, make sure you add rules. But not too many. GameFAQs RPG required the posts to be very understandable and nice to look at, with the scene thing on top and the italic post. The GameFAQs RPG has defined my typing style for RPG's, actually. I adopted the <>s containing action, such as And I adopted a very understandable way of talking. Bah, but now I'm getting off subject a little. That should have gone under rule number 3. Well, one thing is this. NEVER limit the player's abilities to be creative. in Anwnn's RPG, he would not allow the other people to describe enemies. Bad move. That RPG is very dead now. Also, try and make the RPG become deeper. Also, remember that sometimes luck is what the RPG's fate is decided by. GameFAQs RPG survived long enough to become interesting. Do NOT talk for other people, or do actions for them, or describe how they feel for them. There are VERY few people who don't mind beings talked for and even less people who like their actions or how they feel described for them. I hate each one. No one else can make Gaw speak the exact way I want him to, or the exact way I want him to act or say the exact way he would feel under certain circumstances. This doesn't just apply to a person's main character; it can apply to other characters a person has made. Before posting, make sure you know what type of RPG it is. If it's a serious RPG, then don't make a post that would make the RPG very unrealistic and odd. Now, if it was an insane RPG, then you could probably do a lot of things without angering other posters. Such as, you wouldn't be able to smash through a brick wall in a serious and realistic RPG, but in an unrealistic and silly RPG you could. Here is one specific way NOT to introduce your character and a related subject as well! I doubt anyone likes the ominous ultra-powerful guy who magically appears and grants everyone strength/healing/etc. One of the most important things in RPG's to remember is that you are NOT the main character. I say this meaning that you are NOT supposed to be the strongest person. No one is. All of the characters should have equal powers, but in their own ways. I, for example, have a lot of weak magic. But, because of how diverse they are, the effects of combining the spells can make up for it. Also, I am a little bit weaker than most others in hand to hand combat, but several advantages such as flying, swimming, and a very powerful (But limited) fire breath. My character has weak points, but if I use all his abilities, he's as strong as any other person is." }, { "question": "Isn't that much more fun to play as than Mr. ominous magically appearing guy who is stronger than everyone in every single way?", "answer": "I think so. Here's something I strongly suggest you NOT do. Kills people for basically no reason. (Remember, I said NO reason, so an evil person who benefits from their death somehow wouldn't break this rule, and accidentally killing innocent people in the confusion of combat also wouldn't break this, etc.)" } ]
[ { "question": "Is this just some copyright experiment?How can I learn more?", "answer": "Educators need to make better use of their fair use rights under copyright law. The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education helps clear away the copyright confusion and, in the process, encourage the use of mass media, popular culture and digital media as a means to build students’ critical thinking and communication skills. Here, the Media Education Labanswers some common questions about the Code." }, { "question": "How is the Code different from all of the educational use guidelines?", "answer": "This Code is meant to offer guidance, not guidelines. Many educators are unaware that rigid guidelines (such as the ‘ten percent rule’ or the ’30 second rule’) are the results of negotiated agreements and are not, in fact, law. When we spoke with over 200 media literacy educators, we found that many found such guidelines to be confusing and restrictive. Fair use was not intended to be an inflexible list of rules. The Code of Best Practices relies on themes and principles based on the everyday needs of media literacy educators in order to help media literacy educators come to their own reasoned conclusions about what is (or isn’t) fair use." }, { "question": "Why was the Code created?", "answer": "1. Less effective classroom teaching. Teachers in K-12 settings have been stymied by school policies that limit their use of taped off-air and digital materials for media literacy education. A number of teachers voiced concern about the dampening effect of these policies on the creative use of media and popular culture to promote critical thinking and communication skills. Teachers are afraid to use real examples of real media in their classrooms, because of the message they have been receiving about copyright compliance. 2. Fewer quality teaching materials. Because many teachers are less familiar with the rapidly changing media tastes of adolescents, they depend on media literacy curriculum materials created by experts. However, these materials are scarcer than they need to be, in part because educators are not taking advantage of the rights that the fair use doctrine affords them. Worried about clearance issues, publishers have been leery of publishing materials for media literacy education. Many high-quality materials are unavailable or hard to access because of the limits of self-publication. Many teachers avoid even informal sharing of media literacy materials they have created with colleagues in other schools. In particular, they feel they must forego the advantages of the World Wide Web as a tool for circulating curricular materials since their materials include excerpts from copyrighted works. 3. Chilling of student work. Because of their fear of violating copyright, teachers make assignments based on their expectation that student media productions will not circulate beyond the classroom, limiting the ability of student work to reach real audiences and address genuine issues of community importance. Students who do produce critical commentaries of contemporary media have difficulty getting these works submitted to festivals and competitions. As a result, this important work is not shared with broader audiences. 4. Misinformation perpetuated. Few media literacy teachers in our study included a focus on copyright and fair use in their teaching, although some expressed a wish to do so. Most told us that they themselves ‘don’t know enough’ to teach about the topic. Others communicate ad-hoc, groundless rules of thumb, and then let students ignore them. For instance, one teacher lets her middle-school students get their material from the Internet but does not let them use any clips from DVD movies in their video productions." }, { "question": "Why are media literacy teachers the subject of this work?", "answer": "Media literacy educators face these problems every day, because of the nature of their work. Media literacy materials, curricula and resources are created by classroom teachers, librarians, educational publishers, leaders of youth media organizations, college professors, media professionals, and especially by children, teens, and students themselves. All of these people need to use copyrighted materials— film and television clips, newspaper and magazine articles, popular music, online images, and other digital media content— as an essential part of their own work. It’s a chronic problem, but it’s getting worse as mediamaking becomes more ubiquitous and as media use in classrooms becomes ever more common. At the same time, concern over running afoul of extended copyright protections severely constrict our educational mission and our expressive ability when it comes to issues concerning mass media and popular culture. As Henry Jenkins has explained, increasingly the amateurs, fans, non-professionals, and citizens making media are reasserting their user rights. The rapid rise of participatory culture has created new opportunities that were not evident when people largely conceptualized media as a one-way medium dominated by large corporations and mass media culture." }, { "question": "How was the Code of Best Practices developed?", "answer": "We conducted in-depth interviews with over 60 media literacy educators in order to determine the scope of the problem. Then, we held small group meetings with 150 educators in cities around the country where we discussed and debated hypothetical situations pertaining to fair use. The themes that arose in those meetings were used as the basis for the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education." }, { "question": "What about the lawyers?", "answer": "Educators need to make better use of their fair use rights under copyright law. The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education helps clear away the copyright confusion and, in the process, encourage the use of mass media, popular culture and digital media as a means to build students’ critical thinking and communication skills. Here, the Media Education Lab answers some common questions about the Code. Actually, the teachers are the ones who really have to decide what they think is fair and reasonable. They’re the ones who know best how to interpret the general conditions for fair use laid out in the law. In assessing what is (or isn’t) fair use, courts are strongly influenced by information about what constitutes accepted practice whatever field is involved. Our project is an attempt to apply this insight by helping media literary educators to develop their own strong consensus about appropriate (and inappropriate) use. The Code was authored by media literacy educators who are familiar with the daily needs of educators and then subjected to rigorous legal review by a team of expert lawyers. Wait a minute." }, { "question": "Is this just some copyright experiment?", "answer": "No, this is an approach that has worked in the past. In fact, recently, Aufderheide and Jaszi worked with documentary filmmakers, in a project that resulted in the Documentary Filmmakers’ Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use. This process, coordinated through the Center for Social Media and the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, and funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Ford Foundation, resulted in fundamental change in business practices and liberated creativity and free speech for documentary filmmakers. Because of the Documentary Filmmakers’ Statement, industry practice actually changed. In less than two years, the Statement enabled films to be released into theaters and on television, enabled new projects to be conceived, saved filmmakers millions of dollars in costs, and convinced insurers, historically extremely cautious about risk, that insuring fair use was good business practice. This project helped filmmakers to better understand the protections afforded by fair use and helped them to rely upon it where appropriate. Through this process, filmmakers persuaded distributors, broadcasters, insurers and other gatekeepers to accept well-founded assertions of fair use in place of affirmative rights clearance. The Documentary Filmmakers’ Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use has also been helpful to copyright owners by clarifying what is fair use, and it now provides potential defendants with a basis on which to show that his or her uses were both objectively reasonable and undertaken in good faith." } ]

[ { "question": "What are the colored belts achievable through your traditional program?", "answer": "There are nine colored belts (Kyus) and ten degrees of black belt level (Dans) at Kick Masters. Testing usually takes place in 3-month increments at the beginning and intermediate levels, and at 6-month increments at advanced red and brown belt levels. The order of our belt system is white, gold, orange, green, purple, blue, red, 2nd kyu brown, 1st kyu brown, and then black belt level. It takes approximately 3 ½ years to achieve a black belt at Kick Masters Karate." }, { "question": "I heard that grades are a big part of becoming a black belt at Kick Masters, is that true?", "answer": "Grades are extremely important in our program, and they should be promoted at any quality studio. In fact, 95% of our junior black belts are straight-A students, and over 80% of our under belt student population are honor-role students. Kick Masters has several academic programs to improve, encourage, promote, and reward great grades. They include the bi-yearly Super Grade Pizza Party for exceptional grades, our academic achievement patch for straight-A student for the entire school year, and the Kick Masters Karate Black Belt Scholarship for high school seniors." }, { "question": "I’m an adult and I haven’t done much physical activity for a while, am I going to able to keep up?", "answer": "Yes! 90% of sticking with an exercise program is mental. Just by asking the question, you’re almost there! We have a fantastic system set up for introducing beginners into our teen/adult class, regardless of their current physical condition. Included in our state-of-the-art, 8,000 square foot facility is a private training room. All first time teen/adult students take their first few classes 1-on-1, in the comfort of a more secluded training setting. After a beginner feels comfortable enough to join the rest of the class, they are encouraged to participate in the group warm-up, after which time they are split again into their smaller rank group. You’ll be able to keep up, because karate is an individual sport and each participant moves forward at their own speed!" }, { "question": "When do you begin sparring in your program?", "answer": "Sparring or “kumite” is not done until orange belt level, or 9-months into the Kick Masters program. Students, dressed in full safety gear, participate in one-on-one timed matches for points in matted floor rings. Required foam dipped protective gear includes hand and footgear, shin pads, mouthpiece, headgear, and groin cup. Some students even add extra safety gear as they wear chest protectors, elbow and/or kneepads, and face shields. After one and two-step drills are established, students spar with junior or adult black belts first, as they exhibit the most control while adding positive feedback in developing skill. If the student demonstrates the ability to control his/her attacks and counter-attacks, highly structured matches between individual students of the same rank or higher then follows. At Kick Masters, sparring is quite fun and safe for younger students, and very challenging, yet non-confrontational for teens/adults. At Kick Masters, weaponry is not taught consistently until purple belt level. Weapon classes are usually forty minutes in length, as instructors teach fundamental blocks, strikes, and movements with each weapon so students can better understand basic handling and central concepts. The history and application of each weapon is established first, before any student is taught the basics. Many students better themselves in weaponry by attending private lesson sessions, or by attending the weaponry specialty program. Weaponry is not required until black belt level and we teach both traditional and modern weapon application." }, { "question": "I want to break boards, when do I get to do that?", "answer": "In order to break boards at Kick Masters, students must be 18 years old or older, or, be 15 with parental consent. Boards are 1-inch thick pine shelving wood, cut to the dimensions of 9 x 11½. Adult breaking does not take place until green belt level, or 1 year into the Kick Masters’ program. Board breaking requires students to demonstrate focus, technique, speed, follow-through, and confidence. It’s done in a controlled and safe environment, with proper black belt supervision. Board breaking itself measures the quality and power of any given technique and is quite exhilarating to watch." }, { "question": "Is it ok that we watch our child participate?", "answer": "One word: absolutely! We encourage all parents/guardians to participate in their child’s training, be it as an observer/coach or as a participant themselves. When you take an active part in your family’s cognitive and physical development only positive things can happen. Whether it’s explaining the “Life Words” in the Little Dragons Program, reinforcing the “Mat Chats” in the Mainstream Program, or implementing the Quote of the Week and Weekly Health Fact in the Teen/Adult Class, onlookers can emphasize the values and character traits promoted by the Kick Masters staff." }, { "question": "Does bowing have anything type of religious reference?", "answer": "No. In general, the martial arts is very “military like” with its commands and structure. Within the armed forces, participants are taught to respect those of a higher rank by saluting and saying “yes sir” and “no ma’am”. Respect is what karate teaches its students on a daily basis through specific actions and verbal responses. More specifically, bowing is one of the main ways to show respect at Kick Masters, other than saying “yes sir” and “no ma’am”. Bowing can be compared to a handshake, and is done when entering and leaving the studio, when beginning or ending a class, and/or at the end of an exercise. My child is 6 1/2 and we're not sure which program to enter." }, { "question": "What are the biggest differences between Little Dragons and Mainstream Karate?", "answer": "Great question! 1) Classes meet more frequently (2 traditional classes and 1 children’s self-defense class per week - the self-defense class is optional). 2) The mainstream program is more performance based (advancement in the mainstream program is based upon knowing and demonstrating a specific set of curriculum at each belt level). 3) Memorization is required (terminology and basic history are taught to encourage a cognitive approach as opposed to just the physical). 4) Practice is standard (practicing at home is necessary for success in the mainstream program - i.e. 15 minutes a day). 5) Games and drills are more substantive (don’t worry, we still have tons of games we play throughout the mainstream program, they’re just more age appropriate). Our best advice, try out a Little Dragons Class first to see if it's too easy for your child. You can always move to a more challenging class at any time!" }, { "question": "What’s the difference between a junior and adult black belt?", "answer": "Very few differences separate a junior from an adult black belt. The biggest distinction between these two ranks is board breaking. Junior black belts have completed all the other requirements necessary for achieving the rank of black belt, but due to their age (i.e. body development), are not allow to break boards. Another difference is responsibility and maturity. Qualified adult instructors, under the supervision of senior leadership, run and facilitate each and every class. Juniors are present to assist the adult instructors, but most importantly attend class to set stellar examples for fellow students in the form of skill, respect, detail, discipline, and attentiveness." } ]

Generally, the Foundation may require additional years of reporting or documentation of other public service activities to fulfill the service requirement." }, { "question": "Does employment before graduate school count toward the service requirement?", "answer": "No. While the Foundation encourages Scholars to spend time in public service before continuing to graduate school, that service occurs before the Scholar receives his or her educational stipend from the Foundation. The Foundation's purpose, and the intent of the accountability policy, is to encourage a public service career after a Scholar completes his or her Foundation-funded graduate education. This purpose is best achieved by focusing only on employment in the public service after graduate school." }, { "question": "Why does the Foundation require three years of public service employment in the first seven years after graduate school?", "answer": "The Task Force on Scholar Accountability examined various public service career paths and discussed alternatives with Scholars, members of the Board of Trustees, and Foundation staff. The Task Force believed that the accountability policy should provide sufficient flexibility to accommodate a Scholar who needed a period of private sector employment to pay off debt or gain experience, who required time away from employment for family or other reasons, or who wished to change careers. The Task Force recommended these periods of required public service as a way to provide that flexibility." }, { "question": "When am I required to file a report?", "answer": "Scholars are required to file an employment report the July 15th following his or her completion of a Foundation-funded graduate degree." }, { "question": "How do I file a report and what should it include?", "answer": "To file an employment status report, please log into the website and click the Scholar Reporting link on the right hand side of your dashboard. Select \"Employment Report\" as the type of report. In the body of the report, please include your name, updated email address, your current job title and employer and whether your work is public or private sector. You do not need to go into a great deal of detail unless your job title or duties are not self-explanatory." }, { "question": "Who determines whether employment is public or private sector?", "answer": "It is up to the Scholar to make the initial determination whether his or her employment is public or private sector. Once a report is filed, the Foundation will review the responses, and follow up as appropriate. Scholars may be asked to provide additional information to support their designation of public or private sector. Any disputed case will be decided by the Executive Secretary. A Scholar will be notified of the decision and given time to appeal to an Appeals Committee made up of non-Foundation staff. I will be taking a fixed term position after graduate school (e.g. working as a law clerk, completing a post-graduate fellowship)." }, { "question": "How should I indicate that on my form?", "answer": "The Foundation does not distinguish from positions of a fixed-term, like clerkships, and other full-time employment. If your employment fits within the definition of public service listed above, select public service. My school requires a period of residency, externship, or fellowship after graduation." }, { "question": "How should I indicate that on the report?", "answer": "If your residency, externship, or fellowship is considered employment (and is not class-bound or dissertation-related), please fill out the form as you would for employment. Medical students should begin filing reports as soon as their period of residency begins. The Foundation is aware that there may be limited choice of residency appointments and understand that Scholars may be placed in private sector appointments that are not of their choosing. In that case, the Foundation will extend the period of reporting to allow the Scholar to fulfill the service requirement." }, { "question": "I am continuing with my schooling, should I submit a report?", "answer": "If you are continuing with school and not using Foundation funds, you should file a report indicating that you are still in school. You will need to file reports until you have satisfied your service requirement. I am not employed." }, { "question": "What should I include in my report?", "answer": "Explain the situation in limited detail (e.g. \"Acting as a caregiver and not working outside of the home.\") and provide a sense of the time frame during which you will not be employed. The Foundation will review your situation and act accordingly. If you are not employed, the Foundation will not make any attempt to collect funds from you." }, { "question": "How will the appeals process work?", "answer": "The second point of appeal would be for those Scholars who have not fulfilled their service requirement. These Scholars can file written appeal to the Executive Secretary within 30 days of the Foundation’s decision. If the Executive Secretary agrees with the Foundation’s decision, the Scholar has three months to file written appeal to the Appeals Panel. If a Scholar appears before the Appeals Panel, he or she must execute a waiver of file confidentiality so the Appeals Panel can look at the Scholar file. If you have a question that is not listed here, please email Deputy Executive Secretary Tara Yglesias." } ]

A: Each have their unique advantages but all are equally helpful and effective, so choose the method which works best for you. Q: I ordered products." }, { "question": "How long will it take for them to arrive?", "answer": "A: We are a small operation, so unlike the anonymity of large corporations like Amazon, we put your order together with personal attention and your needs in mind. This also means that we do not have the ability to ship products out in conveyor belt fashion like the big stores. If you would like to estimate when your order will arrive, you can check out my shipping schedule. As a general rule for shipments in the U.S., please allow two weeks from the time of your order for your product to arrive. For international shipments, please allow four weeks from the time of your order." }, { "question": "Q: What if my package is delivered but I have not received it?", "answer": "A: All packages are shipped through United States Postal Service (USPS). All packages will have a tracking number, and you can follow your package any time by tracking it. Packages reported delivered by USPS are considered delivered by Parlour of Wonders and are the consumer's responsibility at that point.

If you still have questions about your shipment, you may email our Queen of Mail Order, Marlène at marlene@parlourofwonders.com." }, { "question": "Q: What are your ethical standards?", "answer": "A: I am an active member of the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers. We have a strict code of ethics which I abide by. I personally maintain strict confidentiality when it comes to what you discuss with me in our reading and I do not share or distribute your email, phone or other personal information." }, { "question": "Q: What is necessary for you to do spell work for me?", "answer": "A: Complex Candle work requires a tarot reading beforehand. Single Candle Spells and Mojo Bags can be done with or without a reading beforehand, although a reading can be very helpful and is recommended. All spell work and mojo bags require that you agree to this spellwork agreement." }, { "question": "Q: How long does it take a spell to work?", "answer": "A: That depends on the circumstances surrounding the situation: often, more challenging situations require a longer time to turnaround. I was taught, as a general rule, to look for a small positive sign (such as hearing a special song on the radio, seeing a word on a billboard, a special number on a clock or seeing a symbol of some kind) within three days of completing your spellwork; to look for movement toward your goal within three weeks; and to look for your outcome within three months. If, at any point, you are not seeing one of these signs, then you probably have to go back and give it more energy, employ a new strategy, light another candle or do some more spiritual work around your situation. Think about this: not every disease is cured with one dose of medicine; sometimes it requires another dose and sometimes several - the same is true for spiritual work. If you would like to know more specific timing for your particular case or a spiritual assessment of how challenged the situation is, I recommend getting a reading with me or another trusted reader." }, { "question": "Q: Do you guarantee that I will get the result that I want from my spellwork?", "answer": "A: No ethical worker can guarantee a certain result from spiritual work, because of the principle of free will. While spellwork can influence a situation, it cannot turn someone who is willfully opposed to an outcome into a puppet or bring you an outcome if you are not taking the corresponding real world action. Think of spellwork being similar to a healthcare provider administering healing. No ethical doctor will ever guarantee a 100% positive outcome. Some health conditions are simple and easy to turn around, others are challenging and still others may look bleak. And, as with medicine, you must also consider if your real-world action is supporting your good outcome. A person who has emphysema and continues to smoke will not have the same prognosis as someone who decides to quit smoking, eat healthy and exercise. A good doctor will provide the best possible care for your situation to bring in the outcome you desire, but it also requires that you do some action on your part to support the intention of healing. Ethical spiritual workers are the same. We can help with the spiritual aspects of your situation, but for the best outcome you should be supporting your spiritual work with real world action. My approach focuses on both the practical aspects and the spiritual aspects of your life situation. This is why I suggest a reading before single candle spells and require a reading before doing complex candle work. I will take a look at your case, assess whether the outlook is good, workable or if there is little hope for your outcome and suggest both spiritual and practical guidance. I look at all aspects to see what strategy is best for the situation. This way, I can provide the best possible spiritual work for your highest possible outcome." } ]
[ { "question": "What does the clarification mean?", "answer": "There should be no cost to patients. As of October 5, 2015, insurers should treat 3D mammograms in the same manner as traditional two-dimensional mammograms. However, the Pennsylvania Insurance Department recognizes that it may take insurers some period of time to update their systems to reflect this clarification and expects systems to be updated by January 1, 2016. Until systems are updated, we expect insurers to make a good faith effort to comply with this clarification." }, { "question": "Does the state mammogram mandate apply to all health insurance plans?", "answer": "No, self-insured health insurance plans are not required to provide coverage under the mandate. Self-insured, or self-funded, health insurance plans offered by employers are not subject to this requirement as they are regulated by the Federal government and not by the state. An employer is self-insured if the employer assumes the financial risk for providing health care benefits to its employees. Self-insured employers pay claims using their own money instead of paying an insurance carrier a premium to assume the risk. However, check with your employer’s plan administrator to determine if your plan is self-insured and whether your plan covers 3D mammograms." }, { "question": "Does the department’s clarification of the mammogram mandate impact the amount insurers reimburse providers for 3D mammograms?", "answer": "Pennsylvania’s mammogram mandate does not address the amount of reimbursement for these services. That is negotiated between the insurance company and the provider." }, { "question": "What should I do if I receive a bill for my 3D mammogram?", "answer": "Consumers should file a complaint with the Pennsylvania Insurance Department. Consumers may contact the Insurance Department at 1-877-881-6388, or by visiting www.insurance.pa.gov. If you would like to file a complaint with the Insurance Department, you may do so here." } ]

[ { "question": "What Options do Graduates from an Unaccredited College or University Have?", "answer": "If you are interested in learning about your unaccredited degree options, you have come to the right place. With so many different unaccredited colleges advertising their quality programs to adult re-entry students, it is not uncommon for prospective students with little knowledge about college programs to fall victim and enroll in a program that is unaccredited. You will quickly realize, if you want to transfer or apply for a professional license, that your unaccredited college degree is not worth much to professional associations and many employers." }, { "question": "What Are Some of the Drawbacks of Having an Unaccredited Degree?", "answer": "One major drawback of earning a degree from a school that lacks a formal accreditation deals with financial aide. When you attend a college that is not accredited by an agency that is formally recognized by the government, you cannot receive Federal financial aide grants and loans. This often means you must take the school’s high interest loans or pay for school out-of-pocket while attending. If you do not mind paying for school out-of-pocket, this may not affect you. A majority of the drawbacks are long-term. In most industries, employers are looking to hire an individual with a specialized degree earn by attending an accredited program. If you must have educational experience to be licensed in a profession or vocation, the city or state agency will not accept your degree unless the institution or program is formally accredited. You also do not have the option to transfer the credits that you earned to another accredited school because unaccredited credits are not transferable." }, { "question": "What Can You Do With Your Unaccredited Degree?", "answer": "After reading the limitations you can face with an unaccredited degree, you may be wondering what you can do with the piece of paper you spent years earning. While your options are very limited, you still have options. First, not all states require that you disclose that your degree is unaccredited. Check in your state to see if this is a requirement before you write your resume. If it is not a requirement, put your degree in the education category of your resume with the school name. Only let the employer know the school is unaccredited if asked. If you are required to disclose this information, it is in your best interest to look for positions that do not require a college degree. By doing this, you can submit an application that shows you are committed to completing what you start. A degree that is not required will not work against you, but it can when there is a strict degree requirement. It is very important to be upfront and never falsify your resume. When you enroll in school, you are excited for the future. Unfortunately, failing to do your research can affect that future. Be sure you attend an accredited school if you are about to enroll. If you mistakenly choose a school without accreditation, know your unaccredited degree options." } ]

I thought the \"Sceptics\" were intelligent people who asked intelligent questions and based what they believe on scientific facts and proven evidence. I thought they debate the issues and used common sense. But any Sceptic who argues for atheistic evolution destroys any possibility of this." }, { "question": "What proof is there for atheism?", "answer": "You must answer this if you want people embrace atheism. It''s just simply impossible to disprove God. To say ''God does not exist'' is a universal negative. It''s impossible to prove a universal negative therefore atheism is false and impossible to defend [unless you have complete knowledge of everything]. Atheism is a self-refuting statement; no one knows enough to be an atheist so there''s no logical ground for it. You must have total knowledge of all reality and know all facts and truth of existence." }, { "question": "Is it possible for God to exist outside the knowledge you possess?", "answer": "So there''s no way you can defend your case. After reading the Septic Friends website it''s obvious evolution is lacking solid sound evidence. The theory of evolution is NOT a scientific proven theory or fact.

Remove the evidence for the resurrection of Christ. 5. Disprove all the prophecies in the Bible. 6. Demonstrate the Bible is a fraud. 7. Establish the credibility of atheism.

Also, if you understood \"scientific methods\" you wouldn''t hold with Atheistic evolution. Real science can only deal with things that can be observed or measured. It depends on measuring or watching something happen, and checking it by doing it again. Evolution at least in the sense that Darwin speaks of it, cannot be detected within the lifetime of a single observer." }, { "question": "How is it you don''t know this?", "answer": "It''s a scientific fact, life can only come from pre-existent life not from matter alone. The bases for atheism is that matter and chance produced life. The problem with matter is that it''s not eternal. Matter must have originated some time in the past by a method equivalent to creation. You must either say, in the beginning God or in the beginning nothing." }, { "question": "How can non-living matter can jump the many hurdles required to form living cells?", "answer": "That''s why the atheist has no explanation for life, because without God life has no sense." }, { "question": "Can life come from nothing and develop itself?", "answer": "No! It makes more sense to believe that \"in the beginning God created the heavens and earth\" than in the beginning nothing produced something. And then millions of atoms fell together by themselves without a blueprint and made a simple microbe or cell. There must be an intelligence to start with, to direct the atoms. All things left to themselves fall apart, not together. Computers don''t happen by chance and matter, it takes intelligence to produce something intelligent." }, { "question": "How can matter and chance (both void of intelligence) ultimately produce something as complex as the human brain?", "answer": "Information is stored on DNA code, but the code itself is not intelligent nor improved by random chance. Genetic defects or accidents never improve DNA only destroy or damage it. And lost \"Sheep\" need a \"Shepherd\" far more, because \"life\" has no explanation for them. The world doesn''t make sense. No amount of chance and time could produce a world like ours in all its complexity." }, { "question": "What''s the use of a man if he has no final thing to relate to?", "answer": "If there''s no Absolute to give us the measure of right and wrong, we are all like lost sheep. Remember - \"Evolution is a fairy tale for grown-ups. This theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless\"\nI wonder if you really know who you are, or what you believe. While you say these things of yourself yet you can''t hold the position of \"Atheist\" dogmatically. The atheist''s claim that God does not exist crumbles under examination. For a person to \"declare\" there''s \"NO god\", is done in ignorance. You would have to know the universe in its entirety and possess all knowledge. If you had these credentials, then by definition you would be God.

Atheistic evolution argues, \"No! he''s just an animal\". Since animals kill, naturally men would.

The proposition that the universe and world is the product of pure chance and believing everything happens at random without rhyme or reason; is mental suicide. The deeply ingrained perception that a system as complex as the genetic equipment and the origin of living organisms could have been produced by chance must be one of the biggest deceptions ever to occur on earth.

In fact, The Skeptic Friends Network doesn''t have a single atheist on its staff. Dunno where you got that information, but it surely wan''t on our site since there are several areas where we talk about how there are no atheists there. It was more than a little obvious that you did little if ANY reading at SFN. You might try actually reading what you have decided to deride with your \"one size fits all\" anti-evolution rhetoric. I write to you as one who has read the websites like yours and much more \"information\" than your little site. Larry the ''news is out'', evolution is a fraud and the Sceptic Society are the last people to know about it. Think Larry, examine the facts, do some research. Evolution is not universally accepted. Many highly qualified scientists today reject evolution. In the USA alone, it is conservatively estimated that there are upwards of 10,000 professional scientists [the vast majority not officially linked to creation organizations] who believe in biblical creation.

Thanks for taking the time to write to the staff at Skeptic Friends Network. I''m sorry you didn''t enjoy your visit to our site. I feel compelled to comment on some of your \"observations\" about us. I, for one, argue for evolution. Others here also argue for evolution. I don''t think that any of us argues for \"atheistic evolution.\" I''m not even sure of what that is. I have never seen or heard \"atheistic evolution\" mentioned in any science class, book or paper on the subject. I have heard the term used by creationists from time to time, but it''s their term. There is no such subject as atheistic evolution in academia. The articles and letters on our site that deal with evolution are in response to attacks on it by a small but vocal minority who either do not understand the theory or reject it because it does not fit a particular religious viewpoint that everything in the bible must be taken literally. Our site isn''t about atheism. I am not an atheist and to the best of my knowledge neither are most of the other staff members. I agree with you. I also think its impossible to disprove God, so I make no attempt do that. There are no articles on our site written with the intention of disproving the existence of God. That is not what we are about. The Theory of Evolution is supported by a mountain of evidence. And yes, evolution is a theory. But in science, a theory is about as close to a fact as you are going to get. The Theory of Evolution has withstood every test and attack for over 100 years. The vast majority of biologists consider it the cornerstone of their science. Evolution is the favored theory, again, of the vast majority of geologists, anthropologists, paleontologists and more. Many of those scientists believe there is a God and, because they do not take the narrow view, have no problem with evolution. There are no articles on our site that mock the bible. If you are referring to \"The Bibles Bad Fruit\" essay, than you have mis-understood it. The idea is to show how you can take a phrase out of context and give it a new meaning that has nothing to do with the authors intended meaning. \"Bad Fruit\" is a demonstration of a ploy often used by \"Creation Scientists\" to add an appearance of scientific credibility to their incredible claims. We are not the Skeptic Society. We like them though. >Chesterton''s dictum is right. ''When people stop believing in God, they do not believe in nothing they believe in anything''. Atheism is rationally impossible, in order to be a atheist - 1. You must prove there is no God." }, { "question": "Regarding Chestersons dictum, have you visited our claims list?", "answer": "Please do. Oh, and once again, I am not an atheist. However, the above list is silly. Unless you use the bible as evidence for the accuracy of the bible, which is not logical, your list fails. For example, outside of the bible, there is no evidence for the resurrection of Christ." }, { "question": "And just why would all the prophesies need to be disproved?", "answer": "It seems to me that disproving any one of them, to a literalist, should do the job. But really, I do not care to mess with your religion. I have no investment in changing your religious beliefs. I will, however, continue to defend the teaching of science, and not religion, in science classrooms. (Dr. L.Watson Science Digest, vol.90 May 1982 pg.44) \"The fossils that decorate our family tree are so scarce that there are still more scientists than specimens. The remarkable fact is that all the physical evidence we have for human evolution can still be placed, with room to spare, inside a single coffin!\" (J.Reader. (Missing Links New Scientist 26 March1981 pg.802). \"The entire hominid collection known today would barely cover a billiard table, but it has spawned a science because it is distinguished by two factors which inflate its apparent relevance far beyond its merits. First, the fossils hint at the ancestry of a supremely self-important animal - ourselves. Secondly, the collection is so tantalisingly incomplete, and the specimens themselves often so fragmentary and inconclusive, that more can be said about what is missing than about what is present\"\n (Prof.H.S. Lipson FRS Physics, Univ. of Manchester). He wrote, \"In fact, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion; almost all scientists have accepted it and many are prepared to ''bend'' their observations to fit in with it. It remains an unproven hypothesis in the laboratories of science and utterly destitute of proof\". [A Physicist looks at evolution'' Physics Bulletin vol.31 1980 pg.138]. (Dr. Colin Patterson Palaeontologist Museum London Master Books USA 1984 pg.89) \"Its easy to construct stories of how one form gave rise to another, and to find reasons why the stages should be favoured by natural selection. But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test\". (Dawkins) \"The more statistically improbable a thing is, the less can we believe that it just happened by blind chance. Superficially the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer\" [Necessity of Darwinism. New Scientist vol.94 15April82 pg.130]. And - \"We have seen that living things are too improbable and too beautifully ''designed'' to have come into existence by chance\" [Blindwatch Marker pg.43]. It''s amazing how Sceptics think they understand and read the Bible more correctly than theologians. Amazing how they select verses and take them \"out of context\" and suggest the Bible says something many readers know it doesn''t." }, { "question": "If you people are so clever at that, why aren''t you equally clever at examining evolution?", "answer": "To interpret the Bible, you use a problematic unproven theory that changes like the wind. But your desire to level \"Creation Scientists\" reveals a bias and ignores the shambles of evolution. Creationists teach, \"A reptile can only produce a reptile, a horse can only produce a horse, and a monkey can only produce a monkey, never a man\". That has more \"credibility\" than arguing for the missing links." }, { "question": "Where are the missing links David?", "answer": "Don''t worry about messing with my religion, just write and prove evolution plausible. I look forward. Dr. Durant taught in the classroom at University Swansea Wales that, \"The secular myths of evolution have had a damaging effect on scientific research leading to distortion, to needless controversy, and to the gross misuse of science\" [How Evolution became a scientific myth'' New Scientist 11 Sept. 1980 pg.765]. Dr. Laing [Geologist] taught - \"For nearly 30 years working with recent geological graduates, I have to teach each one to forget the theories he was taught, just observe what is actually there and record it\" [The Aust. Geolo, Newsletter no.48 19 March 1984 pg.7]." }, { "question": "Why is that?", "answer": "Because \"In any case, no evolutionist, whether gradualist or punctuationist, uses the fossil record as evidence in favour of the theory of evolution as opposed to special creation\" [M.Ridley [Zoologist Oxford Univ.] New Scientist vol.90 25June 1981 pg.831]. Senior Lecturer in Anthropology Syn Univ. taught, \"One is forced to conclude that many scientists and technologists pay lip service to Darwinian Theory only because it supposedly excludes a Creator from yet another area of material phenomena and not because it has been paradigmatic in establishing the canons of research in the life sciences and the earth sciences\". [Evolved or not, that''s the question'' Quadrant Oct. 1981 pg.45]. We don''t see evolution happening. Every living thing contains a program [eg. DNA - information written on a long molecule]. Even the simplest-known one-celled creatures are mind-bogglingly complex but they never accidentally have an increase of information. That is, a coding for new structures, functions, greater complexity. Changes we do see don''t involve increasing information but a decrease. Consider the ''simple'' E. coli bacteria. If you unravelled the strand of DNA it would go around the equator 33 times!" }, { "question": "How long do you think it would take DNA ''Data'' to randomly fall in to place for it to function?", "answer": "You see, the origin of the genetic code is another baffling aspect for evolution; there are no laboratory models. Yet for evolution to occur it requires an increase of information to the DNA. I have never read of any debate on Sceptic websites about evolution. There are many qualified scientists able to dissect the errors in evolutionary theory, yet I have never read one article on the bankrupt nature of evolution, not one! Yet the evidence against evolution is colossal and persuasive." }, { "question": "Has anyone of your ''Friends'' read the books I mentioned?", "answer": "I think not! Otherwise the Sceptics would not give such a fraudulent deceptive theory such credibility. I no longer believe scientists who are evolutionary are solidly based. More scientists have changing views about evolution. If truth matters, then we are to competently communicate truth." }, { "question": "Surely the Sceptics purse truth in other matters, why not regarding evolution?", "answer": "I never said we believed in God. I just said we were not atheists. You also need to look up what skepticism is about. There is no tie to atheism, though, sure, many skeptics are atheists. I have seen Christian skeptic sites that mirror a lot of our own content. You need a clear view on what skepticism means. Read about it on our home page. You won''t find much about religion there. Much of what skeptics do goes nowhere near religion. Many have, of course, made it their own area of focus. I don''t believe you will find a single comment on our site where the existence of God is refuted. The issue comes up many times, but the statement \"I don''t believe in God\" is not the same as saying one think they can prove it. Why not come to our forum to discuss this. Anyone is welcome and that is the sort of place for debate." }, { "question": "New evidence emerges repeatedly that is devastating to evolutionary hypotheses, none of this would ever be considered by sceptics, why not?", "answer": "E.g. Dinosaur bones that are not fossilised have been discovered -- proving they cannot be millions of years old. Dinosaur blood cells discovered -- blood cells cannot survive millions of years [There''s many examples].

Come on Larry, if that''s the theory sceptics indorse, they should have a little area where people can have a laugh at them. The last Sceptic Society website I wrote to was an atheist den. You people are ''all sorts'' neither here or there. But it''s interesting in what you are quoting and what you are ignoring from my letters. Arguing semantics was not the reason I wrote. And arguing atheistic or theistic evolution is not your intention. But what you ignore is the fact that evolutionary theory is NOT a scientific proven theory or fact. If Sceptics honestly valuated the evidence they would KNOW this. You can avoid the issue all you want but that fact remains. Firstly, Evolution is a scientific religion. Real science can only deal with things that can be observed or measured. It depends on measuring or watching something happen, and checking it by doing it again. \"Evolution at least in the sense that Darwin speaks of it, cannot be detected within the lifetime of a single observer\". [D.Kitts Ph.D Zoology Univs. Oklahoma Palaeontology & Evolutionary Theory vol.28 Sept.1974 pg.466]. While its easy to construct stories of how one form gave rise to another, such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test. So by evolution we mean the non-provable [ie. religious] belief that all things have made themselves by means of their own natural properties without outside input." } ]

[ { "question": "Are there certain cases that require I have legal representation?", "answer": "Is some other type of fiduciary like a conservator or guardian in certain situations. Contact a lawyer if you are unsure if you can represent yourself or must have legal representation." }, { "question": "Can I afford good representation?", "answer": "An experienced lawyer may cost less than you may think. Lawyers typically charge one of two ways, by the hour or a flat fee. Contact a lawyer at Nathanson Hall, Lawyers if you need experienced counsel. All lawyers who practice in the state of California must live up to ethical standards imposed by the California Supreme Court and the state legislature. The State Bar is an arm of the California Supreme Court and as so, investigates and prosecutes complaints against lawyers. You can register a complaint with the State Bar if you feel that your lawyer acted improperly. Unethical behavior as defined in the Rules of Professional Conduct and/or the State Bar Act can result in a warning, probation, suspension or disbarment. Rules approved by the California Supreme Court that are intended to regulate professional conduct of members of the State Bar through discipline. They are designed to protect the public and to promote confidence in the legal profession." }, { "question": "Why hire a real estate lawyer if I already have a real estate agent?", "answer": "Buying a home is one of the biggest transactions in one’s life. It involves a lot of money and there are risks. While a real estate agent prepares a real estate contract and a title company can act as a closing agent, the lawyer is the only party that can legally advocate a position and/or give legal advice. We recommend hiring a lawyer before signing any real estate contract as many issues can arise during a real estate transaction. Lawyers can also advise their clients on issues ranging from title, zoning, financing, inspections, taxes, contract contingencies and help negotiate the contract. When a real estate developer builds units that share common areas combined with individual property rights, a HOA is formed to manage the property. It is created by and operates under legal documents called the declaration, articles of association and bylaws." }, { "question": "Is there anything I should do before purchasing property or land?", "answer": "Have the title searched to ensure that the property or land is free and clear of any claims or liens. A real estate lawyer can do this for you and ensure that it is safe to proceed with the purchase." }, { "question": "As a seller, what defects should I disclose?", "answer": "You should disclose all defects to buyers. If you hide defects during a real estate transaction, you could find yourself in court. Speak to an attorney to discuss your options." }, { "question": "What are my options for structuring my business?", "answer": "Legal structures for businesses vary and include sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations. Each type of structure has its own requirements for both forming a business and maintaining its status. The owner’s personal liability and tax status varies as well. It is a name that is different than the legal name of the business on file with the state. If it is a sole proprietorship, it would be the business owner’s name. Generally, a fictitious business name must be registered with the state and/or county but registration varies from state to state. We recommend reviewing your state’s laws regarding fictitious business names or address questions with a lawyer. A lot of businesses incorporate in Delaware because of the state’s well developed corporate law. You can also incorporate in the state where the business is physically located. Contact us to schedule an appointment with a lawyer. Please bring all necessary documentation to your first appointment. Any details submitted prior to agreement of representation are not covered by attorney – client representation." } ]
[ { "question": "1.What can I do here that I can't do on Etsy/Crafts/Ebay?", "answer": "Save Money! With my own store, I have lower fees, so prices are lower for my customers. Taxes are lower too: as a small independent shop, I don't qualify for nearly all the taxes marketplaces do, which saves around half of my customers up to 27% in taxes depending on where you live. Plus the stuff I had to attach to purchases on Etsy (tutorials, size charts) can be downloaded free! 2." }, { "question": "Are you closing the Etsy store?", "answer": "No!

That depends on your device. For some people, all they have to do is click 'print' and change a box from 100% to say, 125% and their pattern will print out perfectly across 2 pages. If your phone/tablet/computer/etc doesn't have that option, print it at 100% and go to your nearest photocopier. If you don't have a nearby print shop, try your local library (or school/work if you have access to one there). 7." }, { "question": "What if I don't have a printer?", "answer": "A. You can put your files on a phone or thumb drive and get it printed at a print shop/library too. I also offer print services, but it's usually cheaper to do it locally than to pay for shipping. 8." }, { "question": "Do I need a sewing machine?", "answer": "A. Nope. Sewing machines are designed to do common sewing techniques fast, but not as precisely as hand sewing. Since most doll seams are small, there isn't as much of a benefit to machine sewing compared to people sewing, but you can do it either way. 9." }, { "question": "What do the 'Difficulty Levels' on patterns mean?", "answer": "Intermediate=Has something new sewers find hard, like collars or sleeves. Marked with what it is, so if it's collars and you are OK with collars, you should be fine. Advanced=If you try this as your first pattern you may rage quit sewing forever (kidding!) If you're comfortable with Intermediate patterns, these will be slightly more challenging because they need extra-precision, or use tricky fabrics. 10.

[ { "question": "Where are the implants placed how can they be fixed to teeth on the same day?", "answer": "The front segment of the jaws – known as pre-maxilla and pre-mandible – most often has sufficient quantity and quality of bone for the placement of 4 implants – 2 straight and 2 angled. This allows the implants to be extremely stable for your fixed teeth (bridge) to be immediately attached to. We use a world-renowned implant system for this procedure, whose implants and components are best designed for this technique." }, { "question": "Is there any need for bone grafting?", "answer": "This concept is fast emerging as the modality of choice for patients with limited bone. They could have had years and years of periodontal (gum) disease. All of the above combine to reduce the amount of bone available for implants. This used to necessitate invasive and, in some cases, major bone grafting. With Same Day Immediate Implants and Teeth in a Single Day there is no need to harvest bone from the chin/back of the jaw or the hip – as was the case for many years – which in turn avoids major surgery related to bone grafting, and eliminating pain by reducing the invasiveness of full mouth implants. The cost for this treatment from start to finish is £15,000, inclusive of any number of extractions (teeth removal), the Same Day Implants and fixed Teeth, and your final bridge 6 months later. The initial consultation and x-ray imaging to discuss your needs and suitability is COMPLIMENTARY with Dr Hamza Sheikh." } ]
[ { "question": "1. Who is involved in the investigation, what are their roles and responsibilities, and why are they involved?", "answer": "There are several agencies and units, both within and outside the San Francisco Police department, responsible for responding to OIS incidents. The Homicide Detail of the SFPD is responsible for investigating unlawful deaths, officer involved shootings with injury, in custody deaths, and deaths that are deemed suspicious by the San Francisco Medical Examiner. With regard to Officer Involved Shootings, the mission of the Homicide Detail is to conduct timely and complete criminal investigations of all Officer Involved Shootings. The Homicide Detail responds to all incidents of lethal force by an officer. It takes command of the scene and leads the investigation. Homicide investigators are some of the most experienced and highly trained members of the Police Department. Aside from years of investigations training and experience, homicide investigators attend rigorous Officer-Involved Shooting investigation courses, including a two week Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) OIS course. The mission of the Forensic Services Division is to assist in the criminal justice system through efficient and reliable identification, collection, evaluation, analysis, and comparison of physical evidence and to provide clear, objective interpretations of all findings. ○ Crime Scene Investigation (“CSI”), which provides scene processing and documentation; evidence collection; associated field forensic work, such as latent print processing, bloodshed splatter interpretation, trajectory analysis, crime scene sketches; incident reconstruction, if needed; and the securing of officer firearms used in OIS incidents. ○ Crime Laboratory, which performs test firing, comparison, examination and forensic analysis on firearms involved in the shooting (both officer(s) and suspect(s)); gunshot residue analysis; DNA analysis; and any other crime lab work required by the investigation. “The Psychiatric Liaison Unit’s mission is to provide support and education regarding mental health issues” for the SFPD. The Psychiatric Liaison Unit assists at the scene of OIS incidents to defuse the situation, to gather information about the psychiatric history of those individuals with mental illness from family, coworkers, neighbors, etc., and to provide appropriate referrals to medical or mental health professionals." }, { "question": "The Return to Duty Panel is tasked with reviewing the facts surrounding the OIS incident and determining “whether it is appropriate for the involved member to return to duty.”28 The Panel asks: “Are there issues or indicators that preclude the officer from returning to his/her regular assignment at this time?", "answer": "The Panel is comprised of high ranking SFPD officers and incident investigators. It is important to note that the panel does not consider whether the use of lethal force was “in policy” or “not in policy.” That determination is made at a later date by the Firearm Discharge Review Board (“FDRB”). The Chief of Police may either concur or disagree with the Return to Duty Panel’s recommendation. The Chief of Police forwards his or her decision in writing to the Police Commission. At its first meeting after it receives the Chief of Police’s report, the Police Commission meets with the Chief of Police in closed session to review the Return to Duty Panel’s findings and the Chief of Police’s decision. The Risk Management Office (“RMO”) controls all Internal Affairs Units, the Legal Division, and the [Equal Employment Opportunity] Unit in the SFPD. RMO investigates cases that involve officer misconduct and officer involved shootings. The RMO uses a structured system that identifies and manages behaviors that result in performance related problems by individual members. The Internal Affairs Division is responsible for investigating officer misconduct as well as officer involved shootings/discharges. Two units within the Internal Affairs Division are responsible for investigating allegations against SFPD officers: one is criminal, while the other is administrative. The mission of the Criminal Investigations Unit is to conduct thorough, timely, and impartial investigations into allegations of criminal misconduct by SFPD employees, including any potential criminal conduct by SFPD officers involved in OIS incidents. The mission of the Administrative Investigations Unit is to continue to conduct thorough, timely, and impartial investigations of allegations of procedural violations by [SFPD officers]. It is comprised of both sworn and civilian legal staff. Additionally, this unit also administratively investigates all officer involved shootings and in-custody deaths. The function of the Legal Division is to be prepared to assist the Office of the City Attorney for future possible civil litigation in defense of the SFPD. According to the Police Commission website, the mission of the Police Commission is to set policy for the Police Department and to conduct disciplinary hearings on charges of police misconduct filed by the Chief of Police or Director of the Department of Police Accountability, impose discipline in such cases as warranted, and hear police officers’ appeals from discipline imposed by the Chief of Police. Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor [four seats] and the Board of Supervisors [three seats] and they oversee the Police Department and the Department of Police Accountability. With regard to OIS cases, the Police Commission meets with members of the Return to Duty Panel and the Chief of Police to determine whether involved officers shall be allowed to return to duty; receives and considers periodic reports on the status of OIS investigations from SFPD IAD; and conducts disciplinary hearings on any charges of misconduct filed by the Chief of Police or the DPA against any officer arising from an OIS incident. The function of the OCME is to protect the public health and legal requirements of the City and County relating to forensic pathology. It performs the autopsy on the deceased in OIS incidents and determines the cause, circumstances, manner and mode of death. The District Attorney’s role in an officer involved shooting is to conduct an independent criminal investigation. The purpose of the District Attorney’s investigation is to accurately, thoroughly, and objectively determine the potential criminal liability, or lack thereof, of any party involved. In other words, the DA determines if any criminal laws appear to have been violated. The DA’s Office conducts its own investigation, then reviews evidence obtained from that investigation and evidence provided to it by the SFPD Homicide Detail, analyzes the pertinent laws, determines whether any appear to have been violated and considers whether sufficient evidence exists to bring criminal charges against any of the involved officers. The mission of the Department of Police Accountability is to promptly, fairly and impartially investigate civilian complaints against San Francisco police officers and make policy recommendations concerning San Francisco Police Department practices. The DPA was created by a charter amendment in 1982 as a civilian staffed agency charged with the duty to take complaints from members of the public regarding SFPD officer misconduct or improper performance while on duty. All complaints are investigated unless it can be determined from the allegations themselves that the officer’s conduct was proper or the accusations are outside the DPA’s jurisdiction. Historically, the DPA responded to the scene of each OIS incident to obtain a general understanding of what occurred but did not begin any type of investigation unless and until someone filed a complaint regarding the incident with the office. On June 7, 2016, the voters of San Francisco overwhelmingly passed Proposition D, an initiative ordinance amending the Administrative Code to require the DPA to “investigate any incident occurring within the City in which a San Francisco police officer fires a gun killing or physically injuring someone. 2." }, { "question": "What is the investigation’s purpose, what goals does the investigation attempt to achieve?", "answer": "OIS incidents mandate two separate, but concurrent, immediate investigations: criminal and administrative. Two different law enforcement agencies begin immediate independent criminal investigations once an OIS occurs: SFPD Homicide Detail and DA’s Office. If the OIS criminal investigation uncovers or raises significant issues, state and federal agencies may also participate in or conduct their own investigation, typically at the request of the City. These agencies may include the Department of Justice or Office of the Attorney General at the state level, and the United States Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the federal level. SFPD IAD conducts these administrative investigations. The DPA also conducts an independent administrative investigation by: (i) sending their own investigators to the scene to observe; (ii) conducting an independent review and analysis of evidence that is forwarded to it after being collected by the SFPD Homicide Detail; and (iii) performing any additional investigative tasks and interviews that it deems necessary to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident. While investigators from the administrative investigation get all information and evidence obtained from the criminal investigation, the criminal investigation receives no information from the administrative investigation. We were informed, but have not been able to substantiate, that the administrative investigation work, by and large, is completed within a few months following an OIS incident. However, it cannot be fully wrapped up and no disciplinary proceedings may occur until after the criminal investigation is fully completed and the DA’s Office has issued its charging decision letter. 3." }, { "question": "How does the OIS investigation actually work?", "answer": "A. An officer involved shooting occurs. ● Involved officers shall notify their immediate supervisor and Emergency Communications Division (“ECD”), which notifies the Field Operations Bureau, which then notifies key responders to OIS incident scenes, including personnel from SFPD: Command Staff, Homicide, Crisis Incident Response Team (“CIRT”), IAD, FDRB, Legal Division, RMO, Police Commission; DA; and DPA. ● Supervisor shall be responsible for scene until Homicide arrives. ● IAD representatives shall participate in “walk through” of scene and observe Homicide interviews of officers via closed circuit feed. ● CSI shall collect physical evidence, and perform associated forensic field work. ● Legal Division shall ensure evidence beneficial for litigation is seized and document scene. ● BSU shall send members of CIRT to offer psychological support to involved officers. ● Media Relations Unit shall provide information to the media and act as a liaison with the family of the individual shot during the incident. ● Police Range personnel shall replace involved officers’ firearms. ● Medical Examiner Staff, when a fatality occurs, shall provide expert resources to criminal and administrative investigators at scene, remove the body from the scene, and conduct an autopsy on the remains. ● On-Call Assistant DA and DA Investigators, upon arriving at scene, shall meet with Homicide Detail to walkthrough scene, participate in collection and documentation of evidence, participate in non-compelled interviews of law enforcement witnesses and interviews of civilian witnesses, and confer with Homicide Detail regarding investigative process to follow. ● On-Call DPA Investigator, upon arriving at scene shall walkthrough and observe scene with Homicide Detail, so that the investigator has a basic understanding of the circumstances and environment of incident. ● Involved officer(s) shall be assigned to respective Bureau Headquarters for a minimum of ten calendar days and shall not be allowed to return to duty until cleared by the Chief of Police and reviewed by the Police Commission.

[ { "question": "Where does an appraiser get the data used to estimate values in Arapahoe County or other areas?", "answer": "An appraiser performs an estimation that generates an opinion of value. This opinion or estimate is arrived at using a formal process that generally uses the three main \"common approaches to value\". The Cost Approach is one of the processes that real estate appraisers use to find value; it involves discerning what the improvements would cost less physical depreciation, plus the land value. Another of the methods is the Sales Comparison Approach - which involves making a comparable analysis to other similar properties within a close proximity which have recently sold. Being the most popular approach, the Sales Comparison Approach is generally the most precise and best indicator of market value for a house. The third approach is the Income Approach, which is the best method in appraising income producing properties - it involves estimating what an investor would pay based on the capital produced by the property. An appraiser provides an impartial and well substantiated opinion of market value, to be used in making real estate transactions. Appraisers summarize their professional conclusions in appraisal reports. To determine the most probable sales price when selling real estate. Home inspectors do not figure out an opinion of value and are not appraisers. The purpose of a home inspection is to investigate the structure of the property from foundation to attic. The general home inspector's report will contain an evaluation of the condition of the house's heating systems, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof, attic, and accessible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, the foundation, basement, and visible structure. Honestly, they have nothing in common. The CMA uses market trends to create most of their business. Appraisals use comparable sales which are valid resources. The appraisal report will also include area and building prices. A CMA delivers a \"ball park figure.\" Delivering a defensible and careful analysis, an appraisal will give a clear opinion of value. But the most significant factor is the person behind the report. A CMA is written by a real estate agent who may or may not have a true grasp of the market or valuation concepts. A certified, state licensed professional who bases their livelihood on valuing real estate in and around Arapahoe County is behind the appraisal. Likewise, the agent has a vested interest in the property's selling price - their commission - whereas the appraiser is bound by a code of ethics to accept a flat fee for work they perform, regardless of their outcome. Relevant property attributes, including: location, physical characteristics, legal attributes, economic factors, the real property interest valued, and non-real estate items included in the appraisal, such as personal property, items that are more or less permanently installed and even intangible factors. To become a state licensed appraiser, there are strenuous education requirements as well as on the jobexperience that must be logged. Plus, appraisers must abide by a stringent industry code of ethics and comply with national standards of practice for real estate appraisal. The guidelines for developing an appraisal and reporting its results are insured by enforcement of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Regulations regarding licensing and certification of Real Estate Appraisers vary from state to state. In general, licensing and certification typically translates to many hours of coursework, tests and real world experience. Once licensed, he or she is required to complete continuing education courses so the license remains current. To see the specific requirements for any state click here. Mortgage lenders are an appraiser's most likely customer, requesting their services to ensure real estate involved in a mortgage transaction is enough to cover a loan balance in the case of default. Appraisers also provide opinions for legal settlements, tax matters and investment decisions. One of the most important tasks an appraiser must accomplish is to compile data. Data can be divided into Specific or General. Specific data is from the home itself; Location, condition, amenities, size and other specific data are gathered by the appraiser during an inspection. General data is gathered from a many places. Local Multiple Listing Services (MLS) have information on recently sold homes that might be used as comparables. To double-check actual sales prices, we research tax records and other public documents. Appraisers routinely have to report when a property is in a flood zone, so that information is retrieved from a FEMA data outlet such as a la mode's InterFlood service. If you're involved in some sort of financial decision and the value of your home matters, you'll want to hire a licensed appraiser. If you're selling your home, an appraisal helps you set a price that maximizes profit and reduces time on the market. If you're buying, it makes sure you don't overpay. If you're engaged in an estate settlement or divorce, it ensures that property is divided fairly. Simply put, a home is often the single, largest financial asset anybody owns. Don't make decisions in the dark with a professional appraisal. PMI is the common abbreviation for for Private Mortgage Insurance. It guards the lender in the event a borrower doesn't pay on the loan and the value of the property is lower than what is owed on the loan. Once you can prove the amount you owe on your home is less than 80% of the home's market value, you can make a case to your lender to drop the PMI. Does your monthly mortgage payment include a fee for PMI?Call AppraiseRite, LLC today at 303-680-8261 or send us an e-mail. Documentation of your home's present value could save you thousands. The first step in most appraisals is the property inspection. What this entails is the appraiser, after setting up an appointment, personally going through the home - recording the layout of the rooms, taking photos and documenting the general status of its amenities. The best thing you can do to help is make sure the appraiser has easy access to the exterior of the house . Trim any bushes and relocate any items that would make it difficult to measure the structure. On the inside, make sure we can easily access items like furnaces and water heaters. This rule doesn't apply when a home owner hires an appraiser directly. In these cases, the appraiser may stipulate the purpose of the appraisal; for PMI removal, or estate planning or tax challenges, for example. If not noted otherwise, the home owner can use the appraisal for any purpose. As a rule, the best ROI from renovating a home comes in the kitchen. According to one national survey, kitchen remodels returned an average of 88% of the investment. In other words, a $10,000 kitchen remodeling project would add approximately $8,800 to the value of the home. Bathrooms are right up there with kitchens, yielding 85%. Adding bedrooms and baths can also boost the value of your home (when done well) as long as your home doesn't then become an oddball for your neighborhood in terms of size." } ]

For example, a long skinny object (like a pen), or a flat thin object (like a business card) will be okay, but an object like a tiny collar button (which is smaller than 10mm x 10mm x 10mm) is likely to be rejected. The maximum size restriction depends on which material you chose. Check out the specific dimensions in the materials catalog.

These machines have the ability to print objects in full color. They create each layer by using an inkjet head to deposit binder onto a bed of compacted powder. A thin layer of powder is spread over the bed of the machine, and is cured based on a cross section of the 3D model. Once the layer is complete, the bed lowers and a new layer of powder is spread out. The process is repeated until the object is finished. After each build, the loose powder is removed leaving only the object remaining. The finished object is then coated in elastomer which gives it extra rigidity." }, { "question": "What is 3D printing with Stainless steel via ProMetal?", "answer": "3D printing in stainless steel - A ProMetal 3D printing machine uses an inkjet head to deposit layers of organic binder onto a stainless steel powder surface to build up the object. After the printing has finished the object is placed in an oven to cure the binder. Infusion - Excess stainless steel powder is removed, and the object is immersed in a container of bronze powder. This is heated in a furnace to infuse the bronze into the porous stainless steel of the object. This produces a solid metal object that is a hybrid of stainless steel and bronze. Finishing - The object is bead blasted to smooth the surface after the infusing process." } ]

[ { "question": "More importantly, you’re wondering if we now have to pay health insurance and workplace safety insurance?", "answer": "All and any of the recent changes only affect you if you are applying for a Labour Market Opinion after April 1, 2010. If you already have a live-in caregiver, you would (should?!) already have an approved LMO, and would have filled that LMO by hiring your nanny. If you have filled the position prior to the LMO expiring, with a employee who has a valid work permit and employment contract, you are not affected by these changes and do not need to change anything in your existing care-giver employment situation, including paying for health insurance fees (if they apply in your province) and workplace safety insurance. That being said, you should make sure both of the other two other parts of your live in caregiver arrangement 1) a work permit and 2) an employment contract are still valid. If your nanny’s work permit is about to expire, they will need to apply to extend it. Also note that after a live-in caregiver has worked under the Program for two years within three years of their date of entry into Canada, they can apply for permanent residence. They may also wish to apply for an open work permit, which would allow them to work in Canada in any occupation. A Sample employment contract can be found here. And, while we aren't obligated to pay workplace safety insurance, I think its a good idea. If you have any sort of good relationship with your nanny, you would want to make sure they were supported if they were injured on the job, unable to work etc. Like a traditional employer it may be worth providing, or co-paying. Anyway, looks like today, for those of us with nannies in place, there is nothing to worry about for April 1st. Now, if these changes result in the cost of bringing in a foreign worker prohibitive, and we start seeing the kind of ‘nanny-poaching’ that has been seen in some other communities, it will be another story. Share your concerns, comments regarding these changes and any impact you see as they roll out and I'll be sure to post them here for everyone." } ]

Q: I have received my grow kit." }, { "question": "What do I do now?", "answer": "A: Please read or download the detailed instructions on how to proceed. Q: After two weeks I still do not see any mushrooms growing." }, { "question": "Is there something wrong?", "answer": "A: There can be two reasons. The temperature is below 18°C. This means that the mushrooms do not grow in the average time. The mushrooms will still grow, but it will take days or even weeks longer. Try to keep the temperature at the lowest minimal at 18°C. The mycelium wasn’t fully developed when you have received the kit. This is not your fault in any case and also isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It just has to develop a little bit more and thus increasing the growth time by a couple of days. Nothing to worry about. Q: The magic mushrooms are growing." }, { "question": "When should I pick them?", "answer": "A: You can pick them when the hats of the mushrooms are opening up. This is when the membrane just under the hat starts to rip. You will see that not all the mushrooms will be “ripe” at the same time. Just pick the ones that are ready and let the smaller ones mature a bit more until it’s their time to be brought in. Q: I see white fluff at the base of the mushrooms." }, { "question": "Is this normal?", "answer": "A: Yes, this is part of the fungus. Q: I see a blue color appearing on the mushrooms." }, { "question": "Is my grow kit going bad?", "answer": "A: Hurrah! You’ve just made visual contact with the substance psilocybin. This is the stuff that makes the difference between mushrooms and magic mushrooms. You will find out when you pick the mushrooms, they will stain blue at the spots where you've touched them with your fingers. Very good! Q: My grow kit is turning green." }, { "question": "What is happening?", "answer": "The strain of your growkit, and the PD weeknumber you find on the carton box. The 6-10 digit number you find on the lid of your growbox. Number of days before the infection started to show. Attach one or more photo's of the infected grow kit." }, { "question": "Q: What is the best way to pick the mushrooms?", "answer": "A: Do not pull out the mushrooms! You will be damaging the mycelium and endangering any further harvest. What you do is wash your hands first with soap and water and remove the clothespin from the top of the bag. Now place two fingers (your thumb and your index finger) at the base of the mushroom. Apply some pressure and gently turn your hand clockwise until the mushroom comes loose from the substrate. If the mushroom breaks off a little; so a bit will stay attached to the substrate you just leave it. It is too much entangled in the mycelium to be safely removed. Q: The inside of the growbag, the substrate and the mushrooms are suddenly all black." }, { "question": "Is it rotten?", "answer": "A: You were probably a little too late picking the ripe mushrooms. No harm is done, what you see is the millions of spores that the ripe mushrooms have released. They cover everything. You do not have to remove it, even if you would try, you wouldn’t succeed in it anyway. You can just eat the mushrooms with spores and all; they have no effect on the human body and mind. It’s only a cosmetic thing. Q: I see mushrooms growing under the surface of the kit. They are between the substrate and the box and it is difficult for me to reach them." }, { "question": "Should I pick them?", "answer": "A: Don’t do it when it is difficult. When you try to release them from their position, you will very likely damage the mycelium and kill the organism. This often happens when trying this. Some cultivators cover the outside of the plastic box with aluminum foil. When mushrooms grow between the plastic box and the subsrate the foil will prevent them from getting enough light to develop. Therefore saving the energy available for the mushrooms." }, { "question": "Q: How long can I keep the truffles before I eat them?", "answer": "A: On the package you can find a sticker with the best before date. After opening the vacuum package, you should eat the truffles within 5 hours." }, { "question": "Q: Are magic mushrooms dangerous?", "answer": "A: When used correctly, tripping on mushrooms is safe. Make sure that you are well rested and do not participate in traffic while you are under the spell of the mushrooms. It is important that you feel confident in taking them and that you are in good mental and physical health. Never take mushrooms in combination (before, during and after the effects) with other substances. Especially no alcohol! Find more information about minimizing the risk on our responsible use page." }, { "question": "Q: What is a Bad Trip?", "answer": "A: This is when your mushroom trip is affected by negativity. A person might become anxious, paranoid and sometimes even hysterical or violent. Luckily a bad trip doesn’t happen very often. When they do, it is often the result of bad preparation prior to the trip. Also, because magic mushrooms are psychedelic, they can open up doors of suppressed memories and this often comes with the release of strong emotions. This can be so unexpected to the (often inexperienced) user that they get caught in a spiral of negative thinking. Also the addition of the use of alcohol can be responsible for the inability to channel these surfacing emotions. Conclusion: when you take magic mushrooms be in good health and do not use other substances in combination with the effects of magic mushrooms. Find more information about minimizing the risk on our responsible use page. Q: I have heard stories of people that jump out of windows." }, { "question": "Why do they do that?", "answer": "A: You always hear as an answer: “They think they can fly.” (than they should take off from the ground would Bill Hicks say) This is very rarely the case indeed, but in most cases it is that these people get caught in a spiral of negative thinking. See the previous topic for this. Because people cannot control these thoughts they sometimes panic and resort to desperate measures to break this “loop-thinking”. So it is important that you prepare yourself well before you take mushrooms (see the responsible use page) and also that you will never take more than the recommended dose of magic mushrooms. This means not to take more than 15 grams of the fresh Psilocybe cubensis species. If you have another question, please contact us using the contact form." } ]

You are the only one who has access to myVRS and Account Access. To protect your account, never give anyone your usernames and passwords. Monitor your accounts often and change your passwords frequently. Start with a password that is not associated with you. Don’t use your birthdate, address, phone number, a child, spouse or pet’s name or anything else that someone can easily find on social media. Make up a passphrase instead of a password and use a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters, special characters and numbers. Phishing scams try to obtain your Social Security number, date of birth and other personal information to steal your identity. The scammers may appear to be a state, federal or local government agency, your bank or other official entity and can mimic the real thing. Be careful opening emails and attachments, especially from someone you don’t know or unexpected requests from someone you do know. Check links by hovering your mouse over them to see the actual URL.

Designate beneficiaries and allow access to your VRS account information by submitting the Designation of Beneficiary (VRS-2) and VRS Durable Power of Attorney (VRS-901) forms. The Designation of Beneficiary names beneficiaries for your defined benefit member contribution account and your VRS Basic and Optional Group Life Insurance. The VRS Durable Power of Attorney grants your named designee authority to act on your behalf to make VRS-related decisions.

Protect your future by increasing the amount of your voluntary contributions. Hybrid Retirement Plan members have until December 17 to increase contributions for the next quarter, which starts with the first pay period in January. Your voluntary contribution is in addition to your 1 percent mandatory contribution to the defined contribution component of your plan. Each quarter you can increase your voluntary contributions until you reach 4 percent of your creditable compensation. Your employer matches a portion. If you put money in your Hybrid 457 Deferred Compensation Plan account (up to 4 percent), your employer will match a portion of that contribution (up to 2.5 percent). Your retirement contributions don’t just sit in your account — they’re invested. The amount you set aside from each paycheck, plus the amount your employer puts in, is invested in funds that you choose. Your investments could generate compounded earnings, and then compounded earnings on those compounded earnings. Compound interest could make your money go further than if you simply set it aside without investing or spent it now. Even if you can save only a little right now, you can start with small annual increases to your voluntary contributions through SmartStep. If you cannot save 4 percent now for the full 2.5 percent match from your employer, small increases will help you reach 4 percent gradually, with less impact on your paycheck." }, { "question": "Wondering how increasing the amount of your voluntary contributions could affect your paycheck?", "answer": "Check out the hybrid member paycheck calculator. The calculator compares your current contributions to the increase you choose, showing you the effect on your paycheck through a graph or a table. To increase the amount of your voluntary contributions, log into Account Access or call ICMA-RC Investor Services at 1-877-327-5261 and select option 1. Living a healthy lifestyle now will protect your income in retirement. Preventive care, daily exercise and eating well can help you remain fit as you age. And since health care costs are among the higher expenses in retirement, healthy living and preventive care early in life can pay off for your physical and financial health. Get your blood pressure checked at least once every one to two years. Get your cholesterol checked at least once every five years. Talk with your doctor about options for getting tested for colorectal cancer if you’re age 50-75. Talk with your doctor about depression if you have been sad or down, or feel hopeless. If you have high blood pressure, are overweight, inactive or have other risk factors, ask your doctor if you need to be screened for type 2 diabetes. Get help with healthy eating if your doctor has told you that you are at risk for heart disease or diabetes. Get tested for hepatitis C at least one time if you were born between 1945 and 1965. Get tested for HIV at least once. You may need to get tested more often depending on your risk. Ask the doctor about screening for lung cancer if you have a history of heavy smoking and you smoke now or have quit within the past 15 years. Watch your weight and ask your doctor if you are at a healthy weight. If you have fair (pale) skin, talk to the doctor about how to reduce your risk for skin cancer. If you use tobacco, ask your doctor about services to help you quit. Ask your doctor about vaccines you may need, including pneumonia and shingles vaccines. Get a flu vaccine every year to protect yourself and others. Many of these tests are covered by your health insurance and there is little or no out-of-pocket cost to you. However, it’s a good idea to save extra in case costs exceed your health insurance coverage. myVRS Financial Wellness has helpful ideas for setting up emergency funds, budgeting to cover hospital and doctor expenses and setting aside pre-tax savings for health care costs.

A death benefit amount that is equal to your creditable compensation at retirement, rounded to the next highest thousand and then doubled. The benefit is payable if you die of natural or accidental causes. An accelerated death benefit option. If you are diagnosed with a terminal condition and have fewer than 12 months to live, you can withdraw some or all of your life insurance proceeds to use for any purpose. Your beneficiary or survivor will receive any remaining amount upon your death. The amount of your coverage begins to reduce on January 1 following one calendar year after your employment ends. The reduction rate is 25 percent each January 1 until it reaches 25 percent of the total life insurance benefit value at retirement. When you retire or defer retirement, your life insurance benefit is equal to your creditable compensation, rounded to the next highest thousand and then doubled. You retire on December 1, 2018. Your compensation at retirement is $49,780; for your life insurance coverage, that amount is rounded to $50,000 then doubled to equal $100,000.

Your final reduction will be on January 1, 2022, and your coverage will remain at $25,000* for the rest of your retirement. *The final amount of insurance will vary according to your creditable compensation when leaving employment. However, if you have at least 30 years of creditable service, your coverage cannot reduce below an $8,279 minimum. This minimum will be increased annually based on the VRS Plan 2 cost-of-living adjustment calculation. Classroom and webinar courses are posted on the VRS website as they are scheduled.

[ { "question": "Can You Shoot At My Office?", "answer": "Absolutely! Most professionals need a headshot, but don’t have the time to come to the studio. A majority of our business is on-location corporate headshot sessions. We can travel to your location and set up in a conference room, or other large space. We bring our entire studio’s worth of gear. You will get the exact same setup and experience you would get if you came to us, without losing as much time and productivity." }, { "question": "What Is Your New Hire Program?", "answer": "We are a part of a lot of company’s on boarding processes. Once we have photographed a company’s staff on location, new hires or people who were absent the day of the shoot can come to the studio to get a matching headshot at a discounted rate. Yes we do! However, group pricing varies depending on the wants and needs of the group. Give us a call at 773-999-9981 to discuss the different ways we can help that make sense for your budget! Social media is inescapable, and everyone has the ability to find out who you are with a few simple searches. Having tightly branded images that convey the personality you want is necessity for everyone. If you are an actor, your headshot is your number one marketing material. Your headshot is the first impression people will have before meeting you. It takes less than 1 second for the viewer to make a judgment about who you are, and what you’re like. It’s your headshot’s job to make sure that impression is a positive one. Liking a headshot photographer’s pictures isn’t half as important as liking the actual photographer. If you and your photographer do not jive, you won’t be able to be yourself around them. That tension will show in your shots. You are trusting them with your most important marketing tool. You only have a few hours to get the shots you need. Take the time to have a conversation on the phone with them, or set up a consultation. Most photographers will do these for free. Ask questions. Get a feel for who they are, and how they work. Find out how they direct their clients. This is HUGE. Chances are, you aren’t a model and have no idea what to do in front of a camera. It’s the photographers responsibility to coach you towards the shots you need. Your headshot can cost you your reputation. There is a saying that you have to dress for the job you want. If you want to be taken seriously in your field, you have to make sure that you look the part. Take a look at your current headshot and ask yourself these questions." }, { "question": "Would you hire this person?", "answer": "If you didn’t immediately answer yes to all of those questions, your headshot could be holding you back. It is always better to do things right the first time. Spending money on a quality headshot now could potentially save you thousands in missed opportunities." }, { "question": "How Did You Become A Headshot Photographer?", "answer": "I went to college as a theatre major. While in school, I bought my first camera to make short films. One of my friends approached me and said, “You have that nice new camera. You should take some headshots of me for this audition I have coming up.” Even as an actor, I had no idea what made a good headshot. My research led me to the work of the famed NY headshot photographer, Peter Hurley. After his personal training, I began to build my headshot business in 2011. I was recently named a Mentor on headshotcrew.com. Out of the 12k+ photographers worldwide on the site, I am one of twenty-three people to have been given this distinction. This means that I get to help other photographers improve their photographs, and help them build their own thriving headshot businesses. This is where my work separates itself from the rest of the photographers in Chicago. Every single person I have ever shot needs guidance on what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is a very forced and unnatural experience. It’s the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe to be yourself in. I will help take your mind off having your picture taken through my direction, and crazy banter. This will allow us to capture natural reactive expressions. These moments are when you are the most relaxed and honest. This is how we capture your personality. You will leave with the skills to be able to ‘own it’ in front of any camera for the rest of you career." }, { "question": "Do I Need A Makeup/Grooming Artist?", "answer": "In a perfect world, everyone we shoot would use our makeup and grooming artists. Everyone can benefit from a little bit of pampering, and some minor appearance enhancements from a professional. Not only will you look great, but it will also increase your confidence before you even step in front of the camera. Women should come in with their hair like they would wear it for a normal day. No one knows your hair better than you do. Our makeup artists can do minor adjustments during the shoot to make sure the hair stays under control. We will be moving your hair a lot during the session, so it’s nice to have an extra set of eyes on set to take care of any issues. The makeup artists we work with are used to applying makeup for our specific lighting. Headshot makeup is different than everyday makeup. Our lighting and cameras show an incredible amount of detail. If makeup is applied too heavily it will distract from you. Men shouldn’t wear makeup in their headshots, but it doesn’t hurt to have some professional grooming before the shoot. Our artists will help sort out unruly nose hairs, wonky eyebrows, droopy eyelashes, basic skin cleansing, and minor hair adjustments. If you are unsure about whether or not you should use one of our makeup/grooming artists, let me know and we can discuss it before your shot. All of our headshot sessions include at least 1 retouched image. Don’t worry about that blemish…it can removed with the click of a mouse. Wrinkles can be softened, and any minor imperfections can be taken care of. The key to good retouching is for it to remain natural. We will discuss specific retouching concerns during the session." }, { "question": "Do You Only Shoot A Gray Background?", "answer": "The gray background headshot is the signature look I’m known for. It’s clean, simple, and classy. Everything pops off the gray, and it puts all of the focus on the subject. The more simple a headshot is, the more effective it is. Patterned or environmental backgrounds can be distracting, and also look outdated. We know that not everyone needs a gray background however. We are able to match almost any specifications needed as long as we discuss it before the shoot." }, { "question": "Do You Only Shoot Horizontally?", "answer": "We believe that the horizontal crop is the most modern look for a headshot. The typical portrait orientation for headshots is becoming outdated. The best way to stand out in your field is to look different than everyone else, and to be an early adopter of trends. We believe that this crop draws more attention to the subject and their expression. In the digital age, square crops are the standard format for most website profile pictures. Thumbnails are very small, and you want most of that image to be your face. The wider the image is cropped, the less engaging it will be. While we feel most everyone will benefit from this style, we understand that some clients have certain specifications their headshot has to meet. We are capable of shooting any desired format, just be sure to mention it before the shoot so that we are all on the same page. Retouching can take up to 7 business days. The final images will be delivered in an email download link. Be sure to save all files in a safe place. The download link expires in 7 days." }, { "question": "What Should I Wear In My Headshot?", "answer": "Try not to get hung up on wardrobe. (Pun intended.) The most important thing is to bring clothes you love wearing. If you wear something that you don’t feel good in, your discomfort will show in your expression. We can usually tell if something looks good or not within a couple of shots. It is better to bring a few options just in case something doesn’t photograph as well as you thought it would. Avoid clothing with distracting patterns, and overly bright colors. Most jewelry can be left at home as well. You don’t want anything to distract from YOU. We can discuss any specific wardrobe concerns before your session." }, { "question": "Do You Offer Headshot Printing?", "answer": "The final presentation is everything. Go to a lab that specializes in printing headshots. You’re only hurting yourself if you don’t. Print matte or lustre, NOT glossy. Glossy will make you look like an amateur from a mile away. Using cheap prints is like taking a 5 star meal that Gordon Ramsay cooked, and serving it on a paper plate." }, { "question": "Do You Have A Return Client Discount?", "answer": "Your headshot is supposed to be an accurate representation of you. It is a good rule of thumb to update your headshot every year, or anytime something major changes physically. In order to make that an easy process, we offer all of our previous individual clients a discount of 30% off our current rates." } ]
[ { "question": "What’s the difference between an Alter-ego Persona and a character?", "answer": "An Alter-ego Persona exists at any given moment; it isn’t a mask of a character one applies and removes. An Alter must stem independently (but not always voluntarily) from a person and initially, it isn’t intentionally developed. That is to say: Alter Personas already exist within you, and unlike characters, they have the ability to coexist with you as person." }, { "question": "How come some Alter Personas have multiple gender?", "answer": "They just do. We’re not gender bias as to our Alters. All are welcome. Opinions vary. Alter Personas do vanish, but that isn’t to say that they die. We believe they just alter, or that some of their aspects become implemented in new Alter Personas." }, { "question": "How come the Ultra-Viewer Persona and other crowd-dependent Personas know so much about one another?", "answer": "Most crowd-dependent Personas’ alter-histories are known here in The Sewers, as opposed to Alter Personas who rely on alterview-dependent histories.

Q." }, { "question": "What is weaving?", "answer": "A. Also known as a sew-in-weave, weaving is a commonly used method of installing hair extensions by sewing tracks of hair directly to your cornrows. 2. Q." }, { "question": "How long will it take to add extensions to my own hair?", "answer": "A. Depending on what kind of style you want, a sew-in weave can take between 2-6 hours. 3. Q." }, { "question": "Are weaves reusable?", "answer": "A. Yes, but it depends on the quality level of the hair, and how you take care of your weaves. Some lower grade human hair may not last more than 6-8 weeks, so it is recommended to have it refreshed during wear once or twice, and then replaced with new hair. For reusable hair, Outre’s Velvet Remi, Origin and Simply hair are recommended. 4. Q." }, { "question": "After sewing in a weave, how long should I have it in before removing it?", "answer": "A. Your own natural hair will grow about 1 to 1½ inches every 8 to 12 weeks, so depending on how long you leave it in for, you may need to tighten it or remove it as you desire. For high quality hair, you may have it removed to wash and restore, and then get it weaved in again. 5. Q." }, { "question": "How do you remove a sew-in weave?", "answer": "A. To remove a sew-in weave, you can cut the threads where the weave was sewn on your own; however, it is highly recommended to visit your local professional stylist to have it removed and receive a proper treatment for your scalp & natural hair after a long weaving cycle. 6. Q." }, { "question": "Would a sew-in weave damage my natural hair?", "answer": "A. It should not if it’s done properly. It is important to have a licensed professional stylist to install your weave – someone who can properly diagnose the health of your natural hair and scalp before installing a sew-in weave. Before installation, make sure your scalp is clean and healthy. 7." }, { "question": "Q: Do I have to get a lace closure in order to do a full sew-in with no leave out?", "answer": "A. Not necessarily. A lace closure might be easier to finish, and will look very natural. But there are other methods to complete a full sew-in with no leave out without a lace closure. 8. Q." }, { "question": "How long can I leave my weave in for?", "answer": "A. The answer to this question depends on how fast your natural hair grows, and how well you take care of your extensions. 9. Q." }, { "question": "Can you describe the wearing cycle of a weave?", "answer": "Installing the weave can take between 2-6 hours. At least once every 2 weeks, shampoo and condition your weave thoroughly. After 6-8 weeks, relax your edges (if needed), and/or have the weave tightened. After 8-12 weeks, remove the weave and/or deep condition to restore the hair, so you can reinstall it, or simply remove the weave completely. 10. Q." }, { "question": "How frequently should I wash and condition my hair?", "answer": "A. It is recommended to wash and refresh your hair every 2 weeks. For curly textured hair, we would recommend washing it every week because curly hair is naturally drier than other hair textures. 11." }, { "question": "Q: Can I use products in the hair after washing my weaves?", "answer": "A. Yes. We recommend using a non-alcohol based leave-in conditioner or essence spray while the hair is still damp. 12." }, { "question": "Q: Can I use a blow dryer after washing my weaves?", "answer": "A: Whenever possible, always allow the weave to air dry completely. If you would like to speed up drying time, we would recommend using a hood dryer or bonnet dryer. 13." }, { "question": "Q. What’s the best product to use to prevent dryness and sustain a soft feeling?", "answer": "A. For human hair weaves, we recommend using a mild shampoo or sulfate-free shampoo. Avoid using deep cleansing shampoos because they may strip your hair’s cuticles and dry it out. After washing your weave, a deep conditioning treatment is recommended to hydrate your weave. Natural oils such as Argan oil or Moroccan oil is all you need for you daily care. 14. Q." }, { "question": "What kind of brush is best for weaves?", "answer": "A. For straight styles, a soft paddle brush is excellent! For wavy styles, a wide-tooth comb is recommended. And for curly weaves, you do not need to use a brush. Simply finger comb the curls gently. When brushing your hair, always brush or comb from tips to roots to avoid tugging or pulling on the hair. 15." }, { "question": "Q. What’s the best way to take care of my curly weave?", "answer": "A. Curly textured hair is naturally drier than other hair textures, so it needs to be conditioned well with a moisturizing or hydrating conditioner. It’s also important to avoid heat styling tools with curly hair. For more information, visit OutreTalks to learn how to care for curly. 16. Q." }, { "question": "Can I use a hairdryer, hot rollers, hot sticks, tongs and other styling tools on my weave?", "answer": "A. For 100% human hair, yes, you can use all of the above. For synthetic fiber, it depends on the fiber’s heat resistance ability. Some synthetic fiber can be styled using heat styling tools, but others cannot. 17. Q." }, { "question": "Will I be limited if I wear a weave?", "answer": "A. You do not have to limit your lifestyle in any way while wearing a weave. When you are wearing a weave, you can do all of your regular activities including exercising and dancing. However, activities that cause sweating and rubbing will require you to maintain the hair with frequent brushing, especially around the nape and shoulder areas. 18. Q." }, { "question": "Can I swim while wearing a weave?", "answer": "A. Yes, you may go swimming in a pool, but we recommend applying a hydrating/moisturizing conditioner to the hair before and after entering the pool to avoid tangling. We also recommend making one or two large braids to keep your hair in place to further avoid tangling. 19. Q." }, { "question": "How do I sleep with my weave on?", "answer": "A. Loosely braid or twist your weave, and wrap the hair in a satin scarf or bonnet before going to bed to keep the hair from tangling overnight. 20. Q." }, { "question": "How do I take care of my weave when I workout frequently?", "answer": "A. Sweat and excessive friction from workout movements can cause hair to tangle and mat up. You should always tie or braid your hair in large sections before working out to prevent tangling and matting. 1. Q." }, { "question": "Can I curl or straighten my human hair wig?", "answer": "A. Yes, you can curl or straighten a human hair wig to achieve the styles you desire. Before using heat styling tools, please use a heat protectant spray on the hair to prevent hair damage from the heat. 2. Q." }, { "question": "Can I use hairspray on my human hair wig?", "answer": "A. We do not recommend using hairspray on your human hair wig because it will cause products to build up on the hair, which can cause tangling and matting issues. If you insist on using it, please wash the wig carefully afterwards to rinse out the product. 3. Q." }, { "question": "How often should I wash my human hair wig?", "answer": "A. We would suggest washing your wig every 10-14 days. The wash cycle also depends on each individual according to how often the wig is worn, what products were applied to the wig, etc. 4. Q." }, { "question": "What is the best way to store a wig?", "answer": "A. We recommend using a wig stand or mannequin head. They will keep the hair from tangling and will help to maintain the shape of the wig cap. 5. Q." }, { "question": "How can I make my human hair wig last?", "answer": "A. For a longer-lasting wig, do not use heavy styling products such as hair mousse, sprays, and oil sheen. Alcohol-based sprays will dry out the hair and cause build-up over the time. It is best to keep the wig in its original condition without applying any products. Finger comb or gently brush through the hair to keep hair strands aligned, and if needed, you can use a light essence spray or compatible wig products for moisture without the stickiness of sprays, or the heaviness of oils. Washing and conditioning your wig is also a very important step to make your human hair wig last longer. 6. Q." }, { "question": "Can I curl or straighten my synthetic wig?", "answer": "A. You can curl or straighten synthetic wigs that are made of heat-resistant fiber. When purchasing a wig, always look for our heat-friendly icon on the packaging of the wig to make sure you can apply heat styling tools to the wig. 7. Q." }, { "question": "What is high-tex fiber?", "answer": "A. High-tex fiber is a heat-friendly synthetic fiber that allows you to use heat styling tools up to 400°F. 8. Q." }, { "question": "Can I use hairspray on my synthetic wig?", "answer": "A. We would not recommend using hairspray on your wig. But if you must do so, please make sure to rinse it out of the wig thoroughly afterwards. 9. Q." }, { "question": "How can I make the parting of the wig look more natural?", "answer": "A. You can apply concealer to the parting area of the wig so that the parting looks more natural and closer to your own skin color. You can also tweeze the hair around the parting area for a more natural look as well. 10. Q." }, { "question": "Can I color my synthetic wig?", "answer": "A. Many of our synthetic wigs come in a wide variety of vibrant colors, so you do not have to color it! 11." }, { "question": "How can I make my synthetic wig last?", "answer": "A: Synthetic wigs are meant to be worn for a short period of time, depending on how often you wear the wig. The average lifetime of synthetic wigs is around 3-5 weeks. However, if the wig is worn less frequently and is well maintained, the life of the wig can be increased. For a longer-lasting synthetic wig, do not use hair products such as hair mousse, sprays, and oil sheen. Alcohol-based sprays will dry out the hair and cause build-up. It is best to keep the wig in its original condition without applying any products. Finger comb or gently brush through the hair to keep hair strands aligned, and if needed, you can use a light essence spray or compatible wig products for moisture without the stickiness of sprays, or the heaviness of oils. 13. Q." }, { "question": "How can I avoid stress and thinning around the perimeter of my head when wearing half-wigs?", "answer": "A. We recommend taking a break from wearing half-wigs for at least a couple of days if you notice any stress or thinning. Stress on your own hair will need proper recovery time. 1." }, { "question": "Q: How long can I keep braids in for?", "answer": "A: No longer than 3 months. Your natural hair (new growth) will get twisted and start to lock on its own after about a 3 month period. This will cause a lot of breakage, which can lead to severe hair loss. 2." }, { "question": "Q: How many packs do I need to complete a style?", "answer": "A: It varies widely depending on the thickness, length, and style you are looking for. Typically, it could range from 4 packs to 13 packs. We would recommend consulting a professional braider on the type of braid and quantity needed for the specific style you are looking for. 3." }, { "question": "Q: How often should I wash my hair while wearing braids?", "answer": "A: We recommend washing your hair every 3-4 weeks or more frequently as needed to keep your scalp clean and moisturized. It is recommended that you visit a professional braider or stylist for a more thorough wash.\n4." }, { "question": "Q: How long does it take for braids to dry completely?", "answer": "A: It generally takes 2-4 hours depending on the thickness and length of the braids – thicker & longer will take more time to dry. After washing, pat dry or gently squeeze the braids with a towel, and allow the hair to air dry completely. 5." }, { "question": "Q: Is there a lot of hair breakage when removing braids?", "answer": "A: There should not be any breakage if the braids are properly unraveled slowly and carefully. However, you may find some natural hair shedding, which can look like breakage. 6." }, { "question": "Q: Do braids weaken your natural hair?", "answer": "A: Braids are a great protective style and should not weaken your natural hair with proper care. However, it is very important to take breaks in-between braids to give your hair rest, and prevent any future weakening." } ]

We aim to provide prizes only readers in your audience would want (e.g. books in your genre or sub-genre) — not gift cards or money. We don’t force readers to join author newsletters in order to participate. We invite them. They like that!

[ { "question": "• What if I need help or support in an area where a specific expertise is required?", "answer": "Transitional coaching is a short-term intervention designed to help individuals who are stuck, unfulfilled, underperforming or in crisis in their personal and/or professional life. This is accomplished through a collaborative process of self assessment and discovery, goal setting and attainment, and conscious, deliberate movement toward greater overall fulfillment. In each session, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client toward action. Coaching accelerates the client's progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where the client is now and what s/he will need to do to get where s/he wants to be in the future." }, { "question": "What is the difference between coaching and traditional therapy?", "answer": "Although coaching may \"feel\" a little like therapy, the approaches are very different. Therapy assumes the patient is unhealthy and in need of healing. Coaching assumes that the client is healthy, creative, resourceful, and whole, and more than capable of making all the right decisions. Coaching focuses on identifying what the client wants and determining what s/he needs to do to get there. Coaching is less concerned with \"why?\" questions or the past, but rather \"what's next?\" questions or the future." }, { "question": "What is the role of a transitional coach?", "answer": "1. To assist with skill development needs, business projects, or other professional, academic, and personal goals. 2. To serve as a partner to discuss and solve confidential issues and challenges. 3. To understand a client's agenda and focus on his or her vision and goals when other distractions interfere with intention. 4. To facilitate goal achievement by clarifying values, brainstorming, developing action plans, examining modes of operation, making requests, and providing structure and accountability." }, { "question": "Can I be coached for a mental health or chemical dependency problem?", "answer": "Coaching does not treat mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association, nor does it treat chemical dependency. Coaching is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or chemical dependency treatment, and it should not be used in place of any form of therapy or treatment. Nevertheless, it can be a very effective adjunct or addition to more traditional interventions. If you are currently in therapy or otherwise under the care of a mental health and/or chemical dependency treatment professional, it is important that you consult with him or her regarding the advisability of working with a coach and let him or her know of your decision to proceed with working with a coach." }, { "question": "What is your basic approach to transitional coaching?", "answer": "Stage 1: I establish expectations, roles, and commitments with my clients. Stage 2: I gather information on my clients' personal and professional history, assessment of their own level of satisfaction in various areas of their lives, short and long-term goals, and their vision of their \"ideal\" life. This data-gathering helps me begin to discover, clarify, and align myself with what my clients want to achieve. Stage 3: I implement regular telephone coaching sessions with my clients, approximately one hour in length. Cumulatively, my coaching sessions are designed to help clients refine their vision of their \"ideal\" life, motivate them to believe that it is attainable, set very specific goals to actualize that vision, and hold them accountable for achieving each goal. My individual sessions are designed for clients to report on their progress from the previous session, including an assessment of their effort and the outcome of that effort. My clients then set the agenda for the remainder of the session. The session concludes with an agreement on specific assignments for the next session. My clients are free to contact me by telephone or e-mail between sessions. Stage 4: I assist clients to transition into a long-term action plan that they will self-manage." }, { "question": "What kind of forms and questionnaires do you use as part of the coaching process?", "answer": "There are a number of forms that I use to guide the coaching process. The two that I would like to bring to your attention are the Transitional Coaching Intake Assessment and the Coach-Client Agreement." }, { "question": "Can you coach more than one person at a time?", "answer": "I coach couples, families and professional groups. However, in order to avoid possible conflicts of interest and confidentiality breaches, there is a limit to the extent I can do relationship and organization coaching, while also serving as your individual coach. Depending on the circumstances, I may opt to refer you to another coach for couples, family or professional group work." }, { "question": "Can you coach me around relationships without the other party(ies) participating?", "answer": "Yes, I use exercises to help clients explore important personal and professional relationships, even without the other party(ies) present." }, { "question": "How long would you be my coach?", "answer": "It depends upon the client's needs. Typically I work with clients for 3 to 6 months. However, I also work with clients who employ my services for only 1 to 3 sessions to work through an immediate crisis or challenge.

The average temperature reaches 30°C (86°F) in July and 10°C (50°F) in January. Either spring or autumn is the best season for a river cruise.

Over the years, cruise companies have aimed to improve their facilities so that travelers who are physically challenged can enjoy their trip as fully as possible. Handicapped staterooms on ships for clients with special needs are often available. It is a \"converted\" regular-sized cabin fit for the needs of physically challenged customers. On some ships narrow corridors, lips on the doorways, and steps at public area are unavoidable. Ships cruising along the Yangtze River may inevitably docks at some of the rural area like small towns or village, elevator and cable cars are not readily available. Wheelchair access may be limited and sometimes impossible.

To let the ship dock at any other place that is not included in the itinerary will greatly increase the quoted price of your trip." } ]

[ { "question": "Don’t see your answer here?", "answer": "Submit it below, we’ll answer you directly and if it fits here, we’ll add it to the CBD FAQ. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid—or product—from the hemp plant. It can be extracted and used in many different ways. The foundation of almost all CBD products is CBD isolate, which is a fine white powder of pure CBD. This odorless, tasteless product is easily combined with other ingredients and easily dissolvable. CBD has been growing in popularity because of its numerous abilities to help heal the body. CBD has been documented to help with inflammation, pain, stabilizing mood, promoting sleep, preventing cancer, and more. It provides all of the healing effects the hemp plant is known for without giving one a “high.” Like any cannabinoid, the healing effects of CBD are amplified when combined with other terpenes found in the hemp plant. Cannafyl products are made using CBD distillate, which is a far more viscous, liquid form of CBD. Distillate contains trace amounts of other cannabinoids which greatly increases the healing effects of the product. The use of distillate is uncommon in the making of CBD products because it is hard to work with, however the benefits of using this raw material are worth it. We have selected terpenes that are known for being anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and anti-mutagenic to give you exactly what you’re looking for in your CBD products. Not only will you receive the benefits of the CBD, but also the added benefits from the proprietary terpenes blend. Terpenes are naturally occurring molecules found in plants, and are responsible for giving a plant its distinct smell, taste, etc. Each terpene is known to have its own set of benefits, so these benefits are amplified when combined with CBD. Cannafyl products combine CBD with a specific set of terpenes to not only provide you with a full-spectrum product, but increase the benefits of specific healing effects depending on your own unique symptoms. Cannafyl Certified Quality CBD oil has a couple different applications. The most popular is to hold a sublingual dose under the tongue for 30-60 seconds (recommended for fastest absorption). You can also apply the oil topically to your skin (Cannafyl CBD oil can be applied directly to an area needing attention or mixed with your favorite moisturizer lotion or salve). Another way is to blend Cannafyl CBD oil into a smoothie. Yes. Cannafyl ships our organic hemp oil extracts to all 50 states. We take a lot of pride in how fast we get your order out of the door! In most cases ou can expect a to receive your Cannafyl CBD oil in a delivery time of 2-3 business days after you complete your purchase. Please note that we do our best to process your order the same day, however, processing your order may take up to 1 business day after your purchase.

For specific details, graduate students should consult the department or program." }, { "question": "How do graduate students determine if they are performing work at the level required by their program?", "answer": "A university minimum grade point average of 3.0 is required to remain in good academic standing and a 3.0 average is required in all courses to be applied toward a graduate degree. Some departments have more stringent requirements, and the graduate student should consult the department regarding academic standards. Also, departments and programs often list specific timeline expectations for completion of degree requirements under “Time to Degree” in Program Requirements for Graduate Degrees at UCLA." } ]

Here you will also find detailed information on which functions of your mobile phone are supported in your vehicle, as well as further notes on usage." }, { "question": "Can I use a Bluetooth-compatible device in the vehicle that is not listed?", "answer": "BMW recommends that you use the BMW tested mobile devices. Any mobile devices not listed should generally permit use of the basic functions but will not have been tested by BMW." }, { "question": "Why isn’t my mobile device included in the list of BMW-tested mobile devices?", "answer": "The large number of devices on the market makes it necessary for BMW to make a selection on which devices to test. Before a mobile device can be included in the list, it has to undergo extensive testing with all mobile phone operations installed in BMW vehicles. Once the tests have been passed, the device can be included in the list. BMW cooperates with all the leading manufacturers in order to include the latest mobile devices as soon as possible after their launch. Telephone manufacturers implement the Bluetooth standard in different ways. As implementation of the Bluetooth standard differs between mobile devices and may change during the life of a product, there may be limitations in the vehicle for which the BMW Group is not responsible. The software, hardware and configuration of the mobile device (e.g. size of phonebook, power-saving mode), operating status of the mobile device (e.g. battery charge, length of operation, degree of usage), network and SIM card will all have an influence on their compatibility. For this reason, sporadic impairment of functions cannot be ruled out, even in the case of mobile devices which otherwise function reliably." }, { "question": "What happens when there is more than one registered mobile device with activated Bluetooth function in the vehicle?", "answer": "When the telephone system is switched on, it automatically looks for the mobile device last connected.

[ { "question": "What is Laser Vision Correction?", "answer": "A: Laser Vision Correction involves use of an Excimer Laser to reshape the front surface of the eye, which allows images to focus sharply on the retina. The laser emits pulses of cool ultraviolet light to remove microns (small amounts) of tissue from the cornea. Examples of a laser vision correction procedures include LASIK and PRK. A: The laser treatment itself takes approximately 60 seconds or less depending on the amount of correction you need. Expect to be at the surgery center for about 1 hour for the entire procedure. 3." }, { "question": "Will I be awake during the procedure?", "answer": "A: Yes. You will receive several drops of topical anesthesia to numb the eye. In addition to the drops, you will also be given an oral medication to help you relax. A: The vast majority of patients experience no pain with Laser Vision Correction. Because we are not all equally sensitive, some people do report feeling some pressure or discomfort during the procedure. Afterward, you may have a scratchy, foreign body sensation for a few hours or up to a day or two following your surgery. 5." }, { "question": "Will I need to wear glasses or contacts after the procedure?", "answer": "A: Most of the time patients are able to function without the need for glasses or contacts lenses after Laser Vision Correction. In fact, 98% of patients are able to drive legally without glasses. In patients who need bifocals or reading glasses prior to surgery and elect to have distance vision correction in both eyes, the need for reading glasses is expected. 6." }, { "question": "How long will I be off of work?", "answer": "A: Most patients are able to return to work 1 day after LASIK, and 3 to 7 days after PRK. 7." }, { "question": "Are there any restrictions after the procedure?", "answer": "A: There are just a few restrictions after Laser Vision Correction. For example, swimming and rubbing the eye vigorously should be avoided for one week. Eye make-up should also be avoided for one week. 8." }, { "question": "Does insurance cover laser vision correction?", "answer": "A: Although most insurance companies consider Laser Vision Correction procedures to be non-covered surgery, all plans and individual policies differ.

[ { "question": "He also examines how the market has changed in the last few years and how he foresees it evolving in the short to medium term?", "answer": "Mr Norwood takes a look at the key differences between active and passive investing, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each within a portfolio. He explains how he assesses different types of passive funds, either exchange traded or more traditional OEIC/unit trust structures and looks at other key issues surrounding passive funds. The opportunities passive funds offer Financial Planners and their high net worth / mass affluent clients are firstly, a very low risk of underperforming the benchmark, and secondly, generally lower fees. There is another, possibly less discussed, advantage of passive investing. Financial Planners will often provide future projections for their clients, for example, how large a portfolio might be at some point in the future if the client invests a certain regular amount of money per month into it. The models for these projections will use forecasts for the market, or index, returns and volatility of the asset classes invested in. Therefore, passive funds will have the same (or virtually the same) risk-return characteristics as those in the models producing the projections, while active funds will have, to varying degrees, different risk-reward characteristics from those of the model. Thus using passive funds enables a planner to stay closer to the projections of their asset allocation or risk tool. As I will show, the passive fund industry has grown strongly over the last decade or so as investors have increasingly sought out lower-cost solutions and, in the case of the UK, due to the Retail Distribution Review. This growth has been particularly strong on the exchange traded side and shows no signs of slowing. The main disadvantage of passive investing that Financial Planners need to be aware of is that the investor will forgo potential outperformance over the benchmark, also known as ‘alpha’. In these times of lower investment returns, a few extra per cent of return each year can make a significant difference over time. Table 1 shows the two different kinds of passive investment along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. As can be seen from Chart 1 below, after 15 years of almost uninterrupted growth, global exchange traded assets, at the end of 2015, stood at nearly $3tn. As the chart shows, the majority of these assets are in equities. Just over half of the equity total is composed of US equities. Within commodities, half the assets under management (AUM) relate to gold. Turning now to open ended passive funds, the following charts show recent numbers for UK domiciled funds, both in terms of AUM and industry share. As can be seen, there has also been growth in this area, with the passive open ended fund share of total UK funds now standing at more than 12.4 per cent, compared to 6.6 per cent 10 years ago. In parallel, the last few years have seen a big shift away from synthetic to full and partial replication, at least in the UK. This is most likely due to the fear by many planners of the counterparty risk associated with the synthetic method." }, { "question": "How do we at Defaqto assess and rate passive funds?", "answer": "Firstly we split the universe by asset class and whether the fund is an ETF or an OEIC/unit trust, so that we are comparing like with like when rating each fund. Risk includes counterparty risk, UCITS compliance and domicile. Accessibility is repre- sented by number of distribution partners. We always keep an eye on market develop- ments and regulatory influences and may sometimes update our rating criteria in order to remain up-to-date. The following numbers and trends within the data used for our 2016 Diamond Ratings may be of interest to Financial Planners. Firstly, passive investments’ ability to track is now generally very good, especially in the case of ETFs. The average r-squared is around 95 per cent for the traditional passive funds covered by us and more than 99 per cent for the ETFs in our universe (a number of 100 per cent would indicate perfect tracking of the index). In the case of open ended, the one sector where we have seen several funds failing to track their index is non-UK Fixed Income. The other numbers, which might be of interest to planners, are the latest passive ongoing charges by asset class. The ETF figures are what might be expected by most people: equity ETFs have higher charges then fixed income ones; within equities the developed market ETFs have similar charges to each other and lower than those of emerging markets; and within fixed income, gilt ETFs have lower charges than corporate bond ones and UK bond ETFs cost less than non-UK ones. The numbers for traditional passive funds, however, are maybe less expected: more variation among the developed equity market sectors; UK equity funds costing the same as Emerging Market ones on average; and passive gilt funds appearing very expensive in relation to the other asset classes. One reason for this is more outliers in terms of charges within open ended passive funds. Financial Planners can of course include both active and passive investments in a client’s portfolio. Many people believe that some markets, such as US equities, are very efficient and already highly researched by fund managers and analysts. Therefore, passive management might be best for that part of a portfolio, as it is harder for a manager to add any further value. Emerging markets, however, are less efficient and researched, offering more scope for active management in that area. Other studies, though, have shown that high proportions of active managers of less ‘efficient’ asset classes have underperformed their benchmark, with there being a greater percentage of underperforming managers than for the more efficient classes. The less efficient classes will generally have higher fees than the more efficient ones. For example, emerging market equity funds will often be more expensive than US or UK equity funds on average, while high yield bond funds normally cost more than investment-grade bond funds. Therefore, on a gross basis, the manager of the less efficient and more expensive asset class starts ‘further behind’ the index, which means that they will have to beat the index by a greater amount just to break even. Whichever of the above competing thoughts one believes in, there may be occasions when it makes sense for planners to design portfolios holding both active and passive within the same asset class. When using active managers, investors face a relatively wide distribution of returns. When combining an active fund with a passive fund for that asset class, however, then the distribution of potential returns will be dampened – there will be fewer very low return outcomes, but also fewer outcomes of very high returns. This reduction in the distribution of returns should reduce ‘client risk’ – the chance of clients leaving if their returns fall below a certain level. In summary, the advantages of passive investing include lower costs on average, virtually no manager risk (the ability of passive funds to track their respective index is generally now very good) and enabling a Financial Planner to stay closer to the projections of their asset allocation or risk tool; while the main advantage of active investing is the potential ability to achieve outperformance over the benchmark. Passive investments don’t always have to replace their active equivalents though – indeed, it is often sensible for portfolios to contain both active and passive investments. Among the different passive peer groups there have often been variations in charges and other fund attributes, therefore initial due diligence and ongoing review are very important. Defaqto’s Diamond Ratings can act as a framework for research into passive funds, comparing and rating them across a range of criteria and allowing Financial Planners – and their clients – to see where they sit in the market in terms of quality." } ]

Seeking and collecting vintage perfume is a road to heartbreak because some things are mostly irreplaceable. It's also expensive and requires time and effort, especially if you're on a hunt for specific items. However, the argument for this quest is education. There's a certain point in one's perfume obsession when curiosity takes over and you want to know what the real Mitsouko smelled like or why many of us are so angry at Dior. I definitely don't think everyone should go out and buy every old bottle of Shalimar he or she can find, but there's something to be said for acquiring samples, even small one, and educating your nose." }, { "question": "Is there a specific perfume house or perfume category that are better as vintage?", "answer": "Some people will tell you everything used to smell better, others will say that it's pointless to even buy modern versions of certain Guerlain or Chanel perfumes. As I said above, starting with the classics is a good idea. It gives you an idea of the changes in the industry. That leads us to chypres and other oakmoss-based perfumes that have either changed significantly (Mitsouko) or were completely discontinued because of the restrictions on the use of this raw material (Parure). If you're interested in perfume history it's also a good idea to track down the classic Coty perfumes from the days when this house still had some integrity. Vintage Emeraude and L'Aimant are relatively easy to find and reasonably priced. It might be an eye-opening experience to smell them." }, { "question": "How much vintage perfume is it reasonable to have in a balanced collection?", "answer": "This is really and truly up to you. As I said above, keeping some samples for reference can certainly be all you need to educate yourself. A perfume collection, in my opinion, should be about the fragrances you love and wear. Some people have little interest in modern perfumes and prefer to only wear vintage. Other are very concerned about smelling dated and out of fashion. I love my vintage perfumes and wear them often. I try (not always successfully) to keep a certain balance because I feel it's more important to support the indie perfumers working today. But I do love my vintage perfumes and still seek them actively." }, { "question": "How do you know when it has gone off?", "answer": "The first rule is that if smells good then it's wearable.

But sometimes the top notes have gone off (especially if they were citrusy) but underneath the weirdness there's still a beautiful composition waiting to be discovered. You won't know until you try, but don't go spraying or dabbing anything on your neck or anywhere sensitive.

This has several disadvantages such as taking up space on the docket sheet, less flexibility when processing orders, and lack of a means to track an order's progression through the system. Uploading orders to E-Orders will look very similar to the way you upload orders now. This is because both E-Orders and the current method of submitting proposed orders use CM/ECF as the underlying mechanism for browsing and uploading orders.

We also have multiple flashes we can use, so even though we prefer natural light we're totally prepared to create gorgeous indoor portraits -- especially those indoor lifestyle sessions or wedding day receptions which can be rather dark!" }, { "question": "WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY PHOTOS?", "answer": "We can't stress enough the importance of not only natural light but the \"golden hour\" light -- aka the sun that's closest to sunrise or sunset. This creates fresh, timeless photos that will be true to you! Plus, then you're not squinting with harsh light in your eyes or forced to stay in the shadows. Just a reminder, the sun sets much later in the summer and much earlier in the winter months so use a sunset calculator to determine the sunset for your date and location then subtract your session time. Our style is all about capturing the real joy in your life! We are going to create images that feel fresh and natural -- avoiding those stiff awkward prom or family photos. We want photos that feel like you. We’re going to take a mix of some really great traditional portraits and fun fresh editorial portraits. We want to make sure you have those precious and fun candid photos on your wall as well as one you can share with your family and grandparents that shows you looking at the camera. For us our style is all about capturing the joy in life." }, { "question": "WHERE DO YOU TAKE OUR PHOTOS?", "answer": "The location of your portrait session is up to you! Most of our clients choose to show off the natural beauty of Minnesota throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding area. Outdoor, open-air environments are always our first choice and we have plenty of them with all of our great state and local park reserves. In outdoor, open locations the light is heavenly, especially during golden hour. We also love to do lifestyle sessions in our clients home -- especially during the winter months as no one wants to be outside trying to take pictures when it's below zero. There are so many great spots throughout our area that even if you've never seen us there, we're always up for a new adventure together! Try to think outside the box about places special to you and brainstorm spots that only you have access to. We're totally game traveling! If you have a place you would like to use for your session, send us a message and I'm sure we can make it work!" }, { "question": "Not sure where you want your photos taken?", "answer": "No worries, we have a ton of great spots in our back pockets. We're also familiar with traveling for destination weddings and love to explore fun new places (check out Nate & Chantelle's day)!" }, { "question": "HOW DO I ACCESS MY PHOTOS AFTER YOU DELIVER THEM TO ME?", "answer": "We have an entire lengthy email that gives a step-by-step process on how to download your images but we'll quickly break it down for you! We use an awesome online personal gallery called PASS that'll give you a personal link to your gorgeous photos. It allows you to download the photos onto your phone or computer and share them on social media directly from your gallery as an option, but not a requirement. You can even share the link with friends & family!" }, { "question": "CAN I PRINT THROUGH YOU?", "answer": "We don't have you print through us :) When we send the the link to your photos as we deliver them electronically and the details of how to download them, we'll include a professional print release so you can print wherever you'd like -- just keep in mind that at retail labs the machines aren't calibrated and technicians aren't trained to make consistent professional prints, so you might see slight or even drastic differences of quality between your screen and the prints you receive. PASS also gives you a convenient access to order prints and more from one of the nation's most prestigious and professional print labs, White House Custom Colour -- which happens to be in our own backyard of Eagan (yay for shopping local!) -- at special retail prices comparable to Walgreens! The prices are very reasonable and when you consider the quality, it's a steal! Plus, the photos will ship right to your door. If you run into any issues and need customer support, you can contact PASS's support team and they’ll take good care of you!" }, { "question": "HOW FAR OUT DO I NEED TO BOOK YOU?", "answer": "Good question! It depends on what you're booking for and when. If you are booking a wedding, I recommend at least 3 months before but it never hurts to check if we are available. Also, we don't book more than a year ahead. For family, engagement, or portrait sessions typically a few weeks to a month is plenty of time. Obviously, during high traffic months like September & October it's a lot harder to squeeze you in!" } ]
[ { "question": "Is there any better way to post two forms and then redirect to a new page on a button press?", "answer": "I tried posting both of them using the method above and then using window.location to change pages but I had a similar problem. You might try submitting \"first_form\" in a callback from the post of \"second_form\". I believe that the submit of \"first_form\" is unloading the page which causes the second post to be aborted. Doing the post of \"first_form\" in the callback from \"second_form\" will ensure that the initial post is complete before the second post begins." } ]
[ { "question": "Who can join a Letsystem?", "answer": "aged people, builders, unemployed, sole parents, lawyers, craftspeople, people with disabilities, teachers, small business operators, healers, shops, children. Anyone who abandons thoughts of “what’s in it for me” and instead thinks “what can I contribute to society”. Anybody who is time rich and cash poor. Anybody who has the ability to think outside the square. Anybody who would like to see a greater sense of time-value placed on their skills. Anybody who has a sense of social justice. Anybody who would like to increase their network of friends and interact with like-minded people. People who want to get something for “free”. People looking to exploit others. Your time and energy will be the greatest contribution. An unskilled worker will be just as valuable as a trained professional. Think about what skills and abilities you have and enjoy using that a community could appreciate." }, { "question": "Are there good clothes your children have outgrown?", "answer": "For more ideas look at the Register to see what other people are contributing, as well as what they are looking for. Take a look at our map of members to see where you can find other Sydney LETS members." }, { "question": "If there aren’t many in your area yet, why not invite a few friends to join as well?", "answer": "There are no limits on account holder’s local currency and no repayment or spending schedule is applied to members. However if the committee considers that a member is abusing their membership, it may take appropriate action to rectify the situation. There is never an obligation to trade if it is not in your interest to do so. Not much, provided that the rest of the members carry on trading with each other. Members can’t take local units with them and can’t spend them outside the system. This question reflects a justifiable concern about cheating within a co-operative activity. They have simply taken more goods and services from the trading community than they have given. However, with conventional money this would be a problem – if a cheque bounces, the money is not available to the payee. With local units, even though the member leaving is in the negative, the member who they traded with is in the positive and they have those units readily available for their next trade. Turnover is the key to a successful system, not the level of credits or commitments. Turnover reflects the amount of transfers happening within the community and also reflects the efficiency of administration in facilitating these trades. As LETS uses a philosophy of “time” and “energy” and each members time is equally valuable, Sydney LETS suggests a base rate of 35 operas per hour regardless of skilled or non skilled labour. In this way activities which are traditionally low-paid tend to be rewarded more generously. As there is never an obligation to trade, if you consider the market value to be too high or too low you can decline to trade. By using a ‘local currency’ that is abundant, people are able to value each other’s time, skills and energy more appropriately. When you use LETS, you are participating in an internal market, which is subtly different from the national or regional markets, which use conventional money. Everyone is still keen to get as much cash as possible. But the ability to earn LETS money is enhanced and there is pressure to spend it rather than hoard it. These factors can combine to give a much lower spread between low price and high price services. People who overcharge find that their trading slows up dramatically and their ability to earn is reduced. LETS is an ethically based trading systems in that they are community based and controlled and no person can profit from the LETS itself, though anyone can benefit from any trading they do in the system. Local currency is also ethically driven in that its worth is derived from a member’s commitment to return the value of goods and services received to other members of the LETS. If a person attempts to “rip off” a LETS group, other account holders can simply refuse to trade with them. To ensure this, each member is allowed to know the balance and turnover of any other member, but no other trading information. LETSystems are cost-of-service, not-for-profit systems run and operated by the members. No person or organisation outside the system can profit or benefit from the system, either in dollars or local currency. The potential exists for an individual to take and not return. However, even if this does take place, the people who have received payment will be able to trade unimpaired. This has no effect on the structural integrity of SydneyLETS. If too many people do this the others will simply slow their trading down, as their ability to spend will be reduced. Not unless you want to take some. Participation does not make you liable for the affairs of the other members or for the SydneyLETS itself. Treat LETS work as if you were obtaining a quote from a trades-person from the Yellow Pages. If it is a major household project, ask for a written quote for work, prior to the work being done. As with all business dealings, it is advisable to negotiate an exchange of operas prior to the trade taking place. Members are advised to take out Work Care cover (approx $10.00 per year), as household liability insurance may not cover household workers employed on your property. If you are concerned about LETS trading causing problems with a Centrelink payment please discuss with your Centrelink officer. If they have any questions we are happy to talk to them to explain that no federal currency is involved and that LETS is a great way to stay active in the community. There is a clause that allows income from government approved LETS based job training trading systems to be exempt. Sydney LETS doesn’t have an official exemption. Accountability for taxes incurred by members is the obligation of those involved in an exchange. The official ruling states that if you earn local units whilst providing a service which is your main profession you must pay tax on all profits OVER 300 units as if you had earned dollars. Units are also deductible so if you spend operas on your business expenses you may declare it. For example: if your main profession is a plumber and you do some plumbing work to the value of 700 operas then 400 operas is considered taxable at the normal rate. If however you spend those 400 operas on bookkeeping or other business expenses then the profit you have made in that year is only 300 operas and the tax department don’t want to know about it. Also if you earn operas as a handy-person (ie put up a chook shed) then this is not considered as earnings under your main profession (plumber) and is exempt from income tax. There is no control, or monitoring by SydneyLETS, of either the rates people charge or of the quality of work performed. However normal consumer affairs and small claims tribunal rules do apply and if there is conventional protection for services performed (eg. Law Society, Master Builders Assoc. etc. ), these also apply with local currency trading. SydneyLETS provides no warranty or undertaking as to value, condition or quality of the items exchanged is expressed or implied for claims for injury or damages of any nature arising from trade between members. See the Join page for details. If you are going to be out of the area for a period of time, and do not wish to receive newsletters or registers, please notify the office in writing before you leave. If your membership has lapsed you may renew it at any time within two years and retain your original balance. You should try to bring your account as close as possible to zero. If you intend to move from the area permanently, please advise the office before the move. Permission from the other LETS group will be required but usually a simple balance transfer is all that is required. You may be asked to pay membership fees to the new system. You can control the display of your contact details when you are logged in to CES,. Any account holder may know the balance and turnover of another. This enables everyone to participate in regulating the system. Should any member behave in an abusive, improper or inappropriate manner, toward another member, the committee could invoke cancellation of memberships. The members concerned are encouraged to employ a mediator, but should this process fail to reconcile the issue, cancellation of membership may occur. Any behaviour which may fall in the jurisdiction of the Police Dept. should be reported." }, { "question": "Can I undo one of the transactions?", "answer": "– Click on the [My Record] button at the top and your personal details will come up.
