[ { "question": "1 How do I qualify as a Registered Patent Attorney?", "answer": "A person wishing to become a Registered Patent Attorney in Ireland has to fulfil several criteria. Namely, the person must reside and have a place of business in the State or in a European Economic Area (EEA) State, and possess the prescribed educational and professional qualifications. Looking at the educational requirements firstly, the person is required to have a knowledge of engineering, or chemistry, or physics (or such other scientific or technical subjects as may be deemed appropriate) – usually a degree certificate is sufficient as evidence of such educational qualifications. With regard to the professional qualifications, in order to satisfy this requirement, the path to qualification involves sitting a number of examinations. These examinations include Irish, UK and/or European patent examinations. The person is required to have a knowledge of the Irish law and practice of patents. In this regard, the Irish Patents Office arranges for the holding of an Examination in the Irish Law and Practice of Patents, usually held at the Irish Patents Office in Kilkenny around March or April every year. The date on which this examination is held is announced in advance in the Patents Office Journal. Candidates are expected to have a good knowledge of Irish patent law and practice, including a good knowledge of relevant case law and show a knowledge of European and International patent law and practice. This is the only patent examination held under the auspices of the Irish Patents Office, but persons wishing to become qualified as patent Attorneys must also sit a number of other examinations testing an ability to prepare, interpret and criticise patent specifications. In this regard, candidates are required to sit and pass the relevant written examinations prepared and conducted by the United Kingdom Patent Examination Board PEB (a joint committee of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys and the Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys in the UK). Such written examinations of the PEB normally take place in October each year and it is the advanced papers known as P3 (FD 2), P4 (FD 3) and P6 (FD 4) of the PEB which Irish applicants seeking registration in the register are required to sit. The examination in these papers is held simultaneously in the U.K. and in Ireland under special long-standing arrangements between the PEB and the Irish Board. The dates on which such examinations are held in Ireland, again usually held at the Irish Patents Office in Kilkenny, are announced in advance in the Patents Office Journal. The correcting and marking of Irish candidates scripts is also performed by the PEB. Where a candidate has sat and passed Papers A and B of the European Qualifying Examinations (examinations held for the purpose of entry on the List of Professional Representatives entitled to represent clients before the European Patent Office), the Board will consider this result as satisfying the requirement to sit papers P3 and P4 of the PEB. The subject matters covered by papers P3, P4 and P6 of the PEB relate to preparation of patent specifications, amendment of patent specifications in revocation proceedings or otherwise, and infringement and validity of patents. The European Qualifying Examinations are normally held in early March each year. An application for registration in the Register of Patent Attorneys must be made to the Irish Patents Office accompanied by the prescribed application fee. In addition to the educational and professional qualifications explained above, the candidate must have undergone training under the supervision of a patent attorney for not less than three years in the office of a patent attorney in accordance with the law of the State or another Member State of the European Economic Area, or have been acting as a patent attorney for not less than three years in the office of a patent attorney acting in accordance with the law of another Member State of the European Economic Area. A partnership is eligible to be registered in the Register of Patent Attorneys if every partner thereof is himself/herself already registered. Applications for registration in the Register of Patent Attorneys are considered by a Board, comprising persons nominated by the Minister of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, and of which the Controller of the Irish Patents Office is Chairman. Details of the fees prescribed for the UK and European examinations may be found at www.cipa.org.uk and www.epo.org, respectively. The APTMA does not of itself hold any patent examinations although it does hold tutorials when the need arises for candidates wishing to sit the examinations.

[ { "question": "Can the Child Decide on Custody?", "answer": "If the parties' combined income is less than $ 300.000 per year, child support is determined based on the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. If either parent has other children in the home or for which he or she pays child support, those numbers arc included in the calculation as well. There are different worksheets used in the calculation depending on the custodial arrangement. The Guidelines and the worksheets are available at www.nccourts.org. Child support generally terminates when a child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whichever occurs later. If the child turns 18 before graduation, child support continues until graduation. If the child graduates before turning 18, child support continues until the child turns 18. Child support may terminate earlier or extend later but only in certain rare circumstances. You can be held in contempt or prosecuted for failure to pay child support. You can be put in jail. Your driver's license and other licenses can be suspended. Your tax refunds can be intercepted. The courts have a host of options to enforce child support orders. Yes. Either parent may seek a change (increase or decrease) in child support at any time if a substantial change in circumstances has occurred after the order was entered by the court. A substantial change in circumstances is presumed by the court if the request to change the support order is made three or more years after the entry of the order and there is a 15% difference between the amount of support being paid and the amount of support that would be required with new calculations under the Guidelines. In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree to the divorce and the situation is generally amicable. In an uncontested divorce in Mecklenburg County, the divorce is generally granted on papers and no court appearance is required. In other words, you and your spouse will NOT have to appear in court. Needless to say, in a contested divorce, the parties are at each other's throats and generally cannot agree on most important items. An annulment is a court order declaring that the marriage never really existed in the first place due to some defect. Marriages can be declared invalidated only in very limited circumstances, as indicated at Section 3 of Chapter 51 of the North Carolina General Statutes.

Consession rates are available to people on a low income who are able to attend daytime appointments between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Vivienne is also able to offer counselling through Victims of Crime (if you are seeking counselling support to cope after a crime has been committed against you) and Carers Victoria (for family carers of someone with an illness or disability, or who is aged). To apply for these free services, you need to contact those organizations directly - see http://www.victimsofcrime.vic.gov.au or http://www.carersvictoria.org.au/how-we-help/counselling for more information. 2." }, { "question": "What frameworks inform your approach?", "answer": "We use an eclectic approach, based on systemic theory, attachment theory and emotion-focused therapy. When working with the effects of relational trauma, we also draw on music therapy methods, dialectical behavioural therapy, mindfulness and sensori-motor psychotherapeutic frameworks. These are all evidence-based, client-centred approaches that give you perspectives and tools to actively and effectively work on your relationships, as well as maximizing your existing resources and strengths. 3." }, { "question": "For men and boys: Will a female counsellor understand my point of view?", "answer": "We really enjoy hearing the different views that each partner or family member has about what is happening! Each person's unique perspective gives important information about the situation, that is needed in order to craft together win-win solutions that are tailored specifically to your particular strengths as a couple/family, and are the right fit for you. 4." }, { "question": "How many sessions will we need?", "answer": "We offer two types of counselling. The first focuses solely on helping couples, children and families communicate and resolve conflict better. This is suitable for people where issues have occurred recently, you have a history of being able to relate well as a couple or family, and no-one is dealing with other complex issues such as unresolved grief or trauma. Often this work can be completed within 4 - 8 sessions. The second type of counselling focuses more on patterns of relating which may have developed in response to grief, trauma, abuse or neglect. These ways of relating may have helped you to survive difficulties, but may now be creating problems in achieving intimacy and healthy connection. This work requires a longer time commitment (an average would be 6 - 12 months, but can take longer where issues are long-standing and may have affected your relational functioning in a more profound way). We will work together to evaluate goals and measure progress together, to decide how long a time may be required. 5." }, { "question": "How often should we come for counselling?", "answer": "In order to get the most benefit from counselling, we recommend you come either weekly or fornightly. 6." }, { "question": "Can I come to counselling on my own?", "answer": "You are most welcome to come to counselling on your own. Sometimes it can help to start individually,especially where trauma or grief has affected your relationships with your partner, kids, parents and/or extended family members. Where issues are more complex and/or long-standing, counselling may involve a mixture of individual and joint sessions. Families may find it useful to come in different combinations at times, depending on what you want to talk through. 7." }, { "question": "What if I can't get my partner or family member to come to counselling?", "answer": "Start by yourself, and we will work together on how best to encourage your loved ones to feel that counselling may be a non judgmental and healing space, where their perspectives will be welcomed. If they continue to be unwilling to come to counselling, you can still learn strategies and new perspectives that will empower you to make the changes you need for yourself in relationship. 8." }, { "question": "Do you see couples and families who have not experienced trauma or grief, who are just dealing with 'ordinary' issues?", "answer": "Yes, of course!

[ { "question": "Looking for technical FAQs?", "answer": "Try our wiki or forums. Untangle’s NG Firewall licensing is done individually for each deployed NG Firewall. One license cannot be shared across multiple NG Firewalls. The pricing band is determined by the number of devices that are behind the NG Firewall. You can purchase a monthly, 1-year, 3-year or 5-year subscription. Untangle’s NG Firewall is priced by bands for different sized companies and networks. The appropriate band can be calculated by counting the number of unique devices behind an NG Firewall on any given day. More explicitly, it is the number of unique IPs on any non-WAN (local) interface including VPN users seen from midnight to midnight the next day. If the number of unique IPs is below the upper bound of the subscription band for that server it is fully compliant. Bypassed devices are not counted. Bypass Rules can be added for devices that do not need NG Firewall scanning and services (printers etc) but still require internet access.

[ { "question": "Can I Earn an Online Wedding Planner Degree?", "answer": "There are no known degrees in wedding planning, but there are professional certificates offered by many colleges and universities throughout the United States. Some schools do offer this certificate fully online. Often, you will learn about both wedding planning and general event planning and management within the same program. Online learning might give you the flexibility you want or need if work and family commitments don't allow for regular classroom attendance. Many programs are self-paced, meaning that you are able to start and finish lessons when it's convenient for you, and typically, the curriculum of the program is the same as if it were being taught in a traditional classroom. Some schools offer an in-person internship at the conclusion of the program, allowing you to use the tools and techniques you've learned online in a hands-on, supervised environment. Some schools suggest a maximum timeframe of six months for completion. You'll need access to a computer with Internet capabilities to take an online certificate program. Using the school's distance learning website, you can download lesson plans, submit assignments and take quizzes or tests. You can communicate with your instructor through e-mail; some schools permit you to schedule telephone meetings with him or her if you are more comfortable communicating that way. Audio and video files may be used in conjunction with text files or PowerPoint presentations to aid the learning process. A wedding planner certificate program is designed to include all aspects of professional management of a wedding, from inception to post-event. You will be taught how to seek out and arrange meetings with potential clients, methods of establishing your role as a planner, how to communicate any expectations you or your clients may have and techniques on how to close the sale. Event planning challenges - including working within budget limitations, dealing with vendor issues, stress management and handling last-minute changes or emergencies - are all typical discussions addressed in a certificate program." } ]

[ { "question": "How are auditions conducted?", "answer": "Auditions will be conducted the first day. The students do not need to have anything prepared. The director will have selected parts of the script that they will use for the auditions, and the students simply need to be prepared to read their part an audition as a group in the scene they are assigned. Afterward, they will have a choice to stand up by themselves in front of class and deliver one line from the scripts if they would like to do so. The students will have a chance to practice reading through the lines with their audition group for 10 minutes or so PRIOR to auditions, and the director will be there to answer any questions and offer assistance. Kids who are just learning to read need not worry! The Director will call out the lines to them and they just repeat them aloud. The primary thing the instructor will be looking for when casting is how animated the child is with their bodies, faces and voice during their audition." }, { "question": "Why are auditions required?", "answer": "Auditions are required as a means of assessing the initial comfort level of your child as a performer. If your child does not feel comfortable auditioning then they are not required to. They will still get a role in the play assigned to them based on all the info gathered from the entire class the first day. As part of the audition process, we explain that all the parts are important parts in the story they will perform, regardless of the amount of lines it has. It’s up to the actor who is assigned the part to flourish in it and make it their own. It’s not about counting lines and the more lines an actor has doesn’t make that actor more important. We discuss that the more lines to memorize means more homework and study at home. We also ask the top 3 roles each child is most interested in so we have an idea of what they are looking for. Not everyone will get one of their top 3 choices, but all of this allows our Director to make the best assessment they can that day on what roles to assign to whom for the best possible experience for all our cast members." }, { "question": "Will the kids have a chance to eat a snack before rehearsal begins?", "answer": "Yes, we will take time at the beginning of each class for the kids to have a snack since they are usually hungry right after school. Please try to send snacks that will create minimal crumbs or mess and are peanut-free. If your child has any kind of intense food allergy please make sure to notate that when you register them on our website. My child got a small part and is upset." }, { "question": "What should I do?", "answer": "KidStage teaches children to do their very best no matter how many lines they have. Even if a role looks small on paper, there are still additional activities to participate in and ways to make that role into something special and unique based on the individual child’s personality. Some of the most memorable characters in plays/movies/stories are only in one or a few scenes. Less is, in a lot of cases, more. We have found that the children with the smaller roles shine just as brightly because they are able to focus on their role and really turn on the performance power! Your child can focus on the delivery of every line they have with much more forethought, practice, and intensity. This will allow them to delve more into characterization and emotional make-up of their character and not having to sit at home memorizing for a longer time just to get their lines down. We would suggest that you have a conversation with your child explaining to them that all the roles in the Play are important and that they can really shine in the role they were assigned as a part of the performance team. Also – you can ask your Director for pointers on how your child could improve their future auditions, and share that with and work on those things with your child." }, { "question": "What is the best way for my child to learn his/her lines?", "answer": "Practice makes perfect! Students should speak their lines “loud and proud” every evening. Young actors need an adult to help set aside and schedule time to work on their lines each week until they are down pat. Without scheduling it, it can easily be forgotten about. Once your child is memorized, then a brush-up every few days is critical to keep them up to speed, and also can be fun since they can delve into creative character exploration at home. You can help by running the dialogue with them; simply read about 3 to 4 lines prior to their lines in the scenes they are in. This gets their brain to start to recognize the pattern of speech leading up to when they need to deliver their line. You need only rehearse the scenes of the play your child is in. For children that are having difficulty recalling their lines, try having them write the lines down repeatedly, this can even be done as a journal exercise. Finally, it really helps kids practice projection and being loud when they rehearse lines from a distance (ex: you sit at the top of the stairs and they sit at the bottom or across a room). It’s natural for them to want to talk softly when on stage so the more practice at home they can have pushing their voices out and with strength, the better it will help them on show night!" }, { "question": "Why is it important for my child to memorize all of their lines by the Off-Book date?", "answer": "Memorization is a crucial element to ensuring your child is getting the most out of the in-class experience! When a child does not know their lines, it’s hard for them to have fun and learn about acting because they’re constantly focused on carrying their script and reading while trying to rehearse. This is why we set the off-book (fully memorized) target date. Your child should be 100% memorized by this point. Ideally, they are off-book sooner than that, but that is the final goal date. This way they can learn more about acting in class without the added stress (and it is stressful) of carrying a script, trying to stay on the right page and then reading their lines. This is ESPECIALLY important if your child is younger (grades K-3). Gaining and developing self-confidence is one of the most influential elements of KidStage and when a child has worked hard and feels confident about their lines they are able to perform with confidence and are free to let loose and have fun exploring their character!" }, { "question": "Are we required to purchase costumes for our children?", "answer": "No. The KidStage philosophy is to keep productions simple and affordable. The class and production are about process and the performance experience for our young actors. Parents can purchase costumes if desired, but we encourage you to push your child to creatively come up with their costume using things you already own! Think outside the box. At the end of the day their costume can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish and often times made entirely of items you already have at home. Many parents have told us that it is a fun parent/child bonding activity that can be scheduled for a particular weekend." }, { "question": "Will there be props for the production?", "answer": "We need families to volunteer to bring/make these items in order to make the show more visually appealing and fun for our young actors! During the session, the director will send out a list of props needed for the production. Please volunteer for things you can bring in – it rarely requires anyone to be artistic and to make massive back-drops. It can be as simple as a tea set, small chairs and table, bench, etc. This is another great example of the collaborative nature of theatre and how everyone working together makes the final project the best it can be!" }, { "question": "What can we expect on show night?", "answer": "The majority of our Productions are simple, and it will be what the kids and parents make of it. In order to ensure a better production, it is of utmost importance that the children have memorized their lines and cues. And to do that, it requires the parents to constantly schedule, remind and work with the children at home. The primary purpose of the show is to help the children build confidence speaking and performing in front of others. Therefore it is great to have as many parents/siblings/family/friends at the show as possible to root them on! There is no ticket charge for most of the shows, so the more the merrier! Also, bring a pencil/pen to the show. One of our traditions at KidStage is that we encourage the audience to get autographs from the actors after the show! It’s a blast and parents/actors all have fun with this! It will most likely be hard to hear some actors." }, { "question": "Is it possible or probable that you may be a bit nervous – forget a line – and even talk softly?", "answer": "In most cases, folks would agree. This is one of the big reasons why young children need the KidStage experience early on so they build up this experience so that standing up and performing or speaking in front of others becomes second nature. We don’t use mics or sound systems because they typically don’t work well and they can be quite expensive. Using mics won’t teach our actors to learn to project their voices. So please be aware that you may not hear certain parts of the play, but that our goal is to build each and every actor up and help them learn to enjoy being on stage. Fearless. Standing with self-assuredness. Strong. And it’s critical that our audience believes in this mission and helps support it by loving and supporting the actors on show night, regardless of how loud or shy or gregarious or emotional they may be." }, { "question": "What does my child have to gain from this program?", "answer": "Theatre can create a positive opportunity for personal and social growth and development. Children involved in performing arts can be more self-aware, understand the value of collaboration and working within a team. They can learn about how emotions can be tied to or even changed by the use of our bodies. Public Speaking has been documented as one of the greatest fears among adults, and our goal is help our students conquer that fear before it can even set in. Through the KidStage experience, students can develop an enhanced imagination, strengthen their creativity, and learn to take risks in a safe environment. Parents have told us that after KidStage, their children exhibited an expanded vocabulary, higher reading scores in their school work, and much more confidence in conversations in groups as well as in a one-on-one setting." }, { "question": "How does the Wait List work?", "answer": "This process has recently been changed, so it’s important to share with you. If a class is full, then you will have a box on our registration page where you can enter your email to be put on the wait list. If and when a spot opens up, the system will automatically email EVERYONE who is on the wait list for that class at that moment at the same time. The first person to go into the site and register will get the spot." } ]
[ { "question": "Highland Smiles > FAQs > Bite Guards > Why do I need a bite guard?", "answer": "Many people grind or clench their teeth while they are sleeping, and they aren’t even aware they are doing it. Often it is their dentist who uncovers the habit because they can see teeth that have worn down. If your Denver dentist recommends a bite guard after an evaluation of the wear on your teeth, wearing it at night can help protect your teeth from further damage. If you continue to grind or clench your teeth at night without intervention, you may start feeling pain in the jaw joint (the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ). You might also begin to experience headaches and pain that radiates along the jaw. A custom-made bite guard is different from the mouthguards you can purchase over the counter to protect your teeth while playing sports. These soft guards are not made to run interference with the act of grinding or clenching. We will make a bite guard in Denver for you from an impression of your teeth and bite registration. After you wear it for a week, we will see you again to adjust it as needed. A bite guard that fits you properly can last for a very long time. And it will eliminate the grinding motion—protecting your teeth and keeping you pain-free." } ]

This is especially useful for charting and graphing." }, { "question": "Can I copy scoring data from a paper score book?", "answer": "Yes. However, be sure to let Takedown know that you're \"Copying\" the scoring. Takedown will ask you that question at the end of any match it suspects is being copied from paper. This is important for preserving the usefulness of statistics -- short time scoring, for example -- that need an accurate match clock." }, { "question": "Can I print my administrative and statistical reports?", "answer": "Yes, all of the statistical reports can be printed from within the app if you're connected to an iPad-compatible printer." }, { "question": "Can I print reports without an iPad-compatible printer?", "answer": "Yes.

All reports will include the new team name." }, { "question": "Can I add my team logo?", "answer": "Yes. Click here for a tutorial. We use Seasons to segregate schedules, rosters and scoring data from one year to the next for reporting and statistical purposes." }, { "question": "How is a Season defined?", "answer": "A season is defined by a name you assign (typically, something like \"2015 - 2016\" but it's up to you), a start date and end date, again of your choosing." }, { "question": "What does a Season contain?", "answer": "Each Season has a Schedule of events, your team Roster, a list of Opponent Teams and all associated scored matches." }, { "question": "Are Seasons in Takedown the same as Seasons in Trackwrestling?", "answer": "Conceptually, they are similar in that they both contain events and rosters defined over a period of time. In Takedown, however, you decide how many and what type of Seasons to create." }, { "question": "How many Seasons can I have?", "answer": "As many as you'd like. In the fall of 2018, many of our customers are adding their sixth Season. Six seasons of data is pretty awesome if you're trying to build a legacy for your program. I just started using the app." }, { "question": "Can I add scoring from previous seasons?", "answer": "Yes. For example, create a Season called \"2017-2018\" and enter the corresponding scoring data from your paper score book or other source. A list of dual meets and tournaments. Just like your paper schedule." }, { "question": "How should I deal with that?", "answer": "Events are categorized as Varsity, JV, Freshman, Middle School or Other -- we call that \"Competition Level.\" For reporting purposes, you can select the Competition Level of interest to keep the stats separate. But, if you'd like to have separate JV and Varsity Seasons, that works, too. In this case, title your Seasons something like \"2015-2016 JV\" and \"2015-2016 Varsity.\"" }, { "question": "Should I add the text \"Varsity\" or \"JV\" to my Event name?", "answer": "Isn't necessary, the app allows you to specify the competition level and displays that information in the appropriate places such as Schedule, Match Scoring and Reports. Adding the competition level to the Event name will create redundant labels -- such as \"Washington HS Varsity -- Varsity\" in the app. A dual meet or individually bracketed tournament. Schedule multiple dual meets on the same date for a dual tournament, quad or tri." }, { "question": "How is the Event defined?", "answer": "An Event includes the following information: event name, opponent name (dual only), date and time, competition level, location, weigh-in (optional), weight classes, first weight class wrestled (dual only), period lengths (including consolations for tournaments), 2nd period choice, official's and scorer's name (optional, dual only), team and individual place winners (optional, tournament only) and notes (optional). A dual meet optionally contains a list of expected regulation and exhibition match ups that are automatically loaded into the Scoring interface." }, { "question": "How do I schedule a dual tournament?", "answer": "A dual tournament is simply a series of dual meets over a short period of time, typically one or two days. Schedule each opponent as a dual meet with the appropriate date and time. You can give your dual tournament a Name which is different from the opposing team's name." }, { "question": "Can I download my team's Roster from your database?", "answer": "Over 9,000 middle school, high school and college rosters exist in our database, so the chances are good. For how to download your team's roster, click here. My Team's Roster isn't in your online database, but I have it in a spreadsheet." }, { "question": "What else can I enter for a wrestler on My Team?", "answer": "Photo, grade or college year, birth date, telephone number, email address, weight certification data, equipment issued/returned and notes. The more information you enter, the more value you'll get from the app." }, { "question": "Can I remove a wrestler from my Roster?", "answer": "Yes. For removed wrestlers, associated match scoring data remains in the database for reporting and statistics." }, { "question": "Is My Team's Roster stored in the cloud?", "answer": "Your roster from the certification process is probably in our database. However, any changes you make to your roster in Takedown Scoring and Stats is not uploaded to our database. Your detailed roster information is stored on your iPad and is private. You can share your Roster at your discretion and with varying levels of detail." }, { "question": "Do you support a \"conference\" or \"non-conference\" designation for opposing teams?", "answer": "Yes. And reports can include or exclude opponents based on this designation. This is especially helpful for post-season tournament seeding." }, { "question": "What is an Opponent Team?", "answer": "A named list of wrestlers, typically representing a school, college or club program against which you compete." }, { "question": "How do I enter an Opponent Team?", "answer": "Download Opponent Teams from our cloud database or enter manually. We maintain current rosters for over 9,000 high schools and over 400 colleges." }, { "question": "Do you maintain rosters for prior seasons?", "answer": "Yes, rosters back to 2012 are available for download in the app. I'm a college coach." }, { "question": "Can I download all the college teams and be done with it?", "answer": "Yes, easily. Never know who you'll encounter at an open tournament. I'm an Ohio high school coach and we wrestler only Ohio schools." }, { "question": "Can I download all the Ohio teams and be done with it?", "answer": "Yes, easily. There's an option to download all teams in a state. I'm still an Ohio coach. We often wrestle against Indiana and Pennsylvania teams." }, { "question": "How many Opponent Teams can I have in Takedown?", "answer": "Limited only by the memory and performance of your iPad. Takedown does not enforce a limit." }, { "question": "Can I add an Opponent Team Logo?", "answer": "Yes. This logo will display on the scoreboard during a dual meet. I'm in the scoring section, but nothing's happening." }, { "question": "What next?", "answer": "Select your wrestler and the opposing wrestler, then tap the match clock in the center. In the scoring grid at the top, the team on the first line is always \"My Team.\"" }, { "question": "Can I add Opponent Teams and wrestlers in the Scoring section?", "answer": "Often, we can't enter the information ahead of time. Yes, it is possible to add the opposing wrestler (and team affiliation if necessary) in the Scoring section. A better approach is to download all the teams you could possibly encounter during the season and that will reduce the need to add wrestlers manually in the Scoring section. Also, for dual meets you can pair contestants in advance of the dual meet. This is optional and is easily overridden in Scoring. Can I add exhibition matches \"on-the-fly?\" Yes, as many as you'd like with or without a weight class assignment." }, { "question": "Can I change my wrestler's color in the scoring grid from green to red to correspond with the ankle bracelet color assigned by the official?", "answer": "Yes. You can change the color at any time. I selected my wrestler and the opposing wrestler, but nothing's happening. Start (and stop) the match clock by tapping it. Always use the match clock. Do not use override to avoid starting/stopping the match clock. Override should be used sparingly. But, the Takedown match clock and the official match clock aren't showing the same time!" }, { "question": "Won't that mess everything up?", "answer": "Unless you're the source for the official clocks, don't worry. Use the \"+\" and \"-\" buttons to get the Takedown match clock to agree with the official match clock if you'd like. If the Takedown match clock expires and wrestling is still happening, just add time by tapping the \"+\" button. There are statistical reporting benefits to having the Takedown match clock agree with the official match clock. Specifically, the Riding Time, Short Time Scoring and portions of Wrestler Profile require an accurate match clock." }, { "question": "Why are the scoring buttons greyed-out?", "answer": "To prevent scoring errors. The scoring interface knows the match context and permits only legal scoring actions based on the current National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) or National Collegiate Athletic Association rule books, depending on how you've installed the app." }, { "question": "But, I need to use one of the greyed-out scoring buttons?", "answer": "Tap Override and all the scoring buttons will be visible. Override should be used sparingly." }, { "question": "Can I add a generic point (or two) to the match score to compensate for action that I missed?", "answer": "No and click here to understand why that's a really bad idea. Use Override or Undo to correct an error. Override should be used sparingly." }, { "question": "How do I erase a scoring error?", "answer": "The Undo button will erase the last visible scoring action. You can tap the Undo button more than once. Once the match clock starts, you can not Undo the previous period." }, { "question": "Do you support Injury, Blood and Recovery clocks?", "answer": "Yes. Tap the appropriate colored chevron(\"<<\" or \">>\") on the side of the Scoring view." }, { "question": "How is start-of-period choice managed?", "answer": "For a dual meet, go to the Schedule and select the event, then on the right side select Odd or Even for your team and 2nd period choice will be offered to the correct wrestler in each match. For an individually bracketed tournament, 2nd period choice is always official's coin flip so there is no Odd/Event choice to select for a tournament. For both dual meet and tournament, the app offers choice to the correct wrestler in the 3rd period." }, { "question": "Do you support team penalty points?", "answer": "Yes. Team penalty points are subtracted from the offending team's score. Yes. The regulation scoring grid transitions to an overtime scoring grid if regulation ends in a tied match score." }, { "question": "Can I change the view from overtime to regulation time and back if I need to check something?", "answer": "Yes. Swipe the scoring grid left to right to go back to regulation and then right to left to go back to overtime." }, { "question": "How do I record a intentional release (escape) on the restart?", "answer": "On the restart, tap Override and tap Escape prior to starting the match clock. Click here for tutorial." }, { "question": "In a tournament, do you support different period durations for Championship and Consolation matches?", "answer": "Yes. Also, within an event if a loss is recorded then that wrestler's additional matches will automatically use Consolation period durations." }, { "question": "Is Riding Time and Riding Time Advantage tracked?", "answer": "Yes, for college matches. Riding time clock operation is automatic, no user action required. Each wrestler's riding time clock is adjustable. The riding time advantage clock is non-adjustable as it is simply the difference between each wrestler's riding time. A riding time advantage point is added to the match score when appropriate." }, { "question": "Can I copy match scoring from a paper record into Takedown Scoring and Stats?", "answer": "Yes. Be sure to start the match clock in each period. Don't use Override to avoid starting the clock. Override should be used sparingly. Make sure to tap \"Copying\" if Takedown asks." }, { "question": "Can I stop scoring an event and score some other event?", "answer": "Yes. This can be done between matches. If you try to switch in the middle of a match, Takedown will give you the option of finishing the match or throwing it away." }, { "question": "Does the app automatically determine the winner of a dual based on tie-breaker criteria?", "answer": "No, but the Scoreboard and Scoring Details reports will help you figure out the winner very quickly. When I finish scoring a match, the app asks if the match is Live or Copied." }, { "question": "What does this mean?", "answer": "If you are copying scoring from a non-live source, a paper scorebook for example, then the match clock is obviously inaccurate. Some of the statistical reports rely on an accurate match clock. So, when the app \"senses\" that you're copying from a non-live source, it asks for confirmation. If you say that the match is Copied, then that match won't be included in certain statistical calculations -- short time scoring, riding time and various stats in Wrestler Profile -- that assume a valid match clock. Oops. I scored a bunch of matches into the wrong tournament." }, { "question": "Can I re-assign them to the correct tournament?", "answer": "Yes. For this and other ways to correct errors, click here. It is possible to correct many, but not all, scoring errors after the fact. For example, it is possible to change the contestant names, weight class, event assignment and match type after the fact. It isn't possible to change the scoring transcript after the match is committed. I paired two wrestlers for a weight class in a dual, but the coach sent someone else to the table." }, { "question": "How can I record scrimmages or other events without messing up my statistics?", "answer": "Create a Season called “Scrimmages” or “Exhibition Events” or whatever you’d like. Or, in your official Season, create a tournament event called “Scrimmage” or “Exhibitions” or whatever you’d like and run all the matches as “Exhibitions.” There are other methods. In any case, it is easy to exclude a Season or an Event or Exhibition matches when generating stats." }, { "question": "Can I create a report without an Internet connection?", "answer": "Yes. All your match scoring data is stored on your iPad. All of the processing and calculations for creating the report are done on the iPad. Tap \"Report Selection\" in the upper left corner of Reports. Standard scorebook, box score, scoring detail, win/loss, seeing meeting, riding time, wrestler profile, short-time scoring, shot success rate, points-by-period, leader board, schedule and roster." }, { "question": "How do I narrow or expand the amount of data shown in the reports?", "answer": "Tap \"Report Selection\" and then tap the blue circle \"i\" to the right of the report of interest. Typically, a second or two. Complex reports -- Wrestler Profile, for example -- can take longer." }, { "question": "What are the various ways in which the data in a report can be expanded or narrowed?", "answer": "By season, event name, wrestler, competition level or event format. Forfeits can be included or not. Some reports -- seeding meeting, for example -- have sorting options." }, { "question": "Over what time frame is short-time scoring calculated?", "answer": "Over the last 5, 10, 15 and 20 seconds remaining in each period, user selectable." }, { "question": "How long is the ranked list in the leader board?", "answer": "Each stat is displayed for 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20 or all wrestlers, user selectable." }, { "question": "In what formats are the reports available?", "answer": "Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), spreadsheet (CSV), image and text. Yes, from within the app by tapping the Apple \"sharing\" icon -- a square with an embedded up arrow -- in the reports view. Email needs to be installed and configured on your iPad." }, { "question": "Can I post reports to Facebook user timelines, Facebook pages or Twitter timelines?", "answer": "Yes, from within the app by tapping the Apple sharing symbol -- a square with an embedded up arrow -- in the reports view. Facebook and Twitter need to be installed and configured on your iPad." }, { "question": "Can I text message reports?", "answer": "Yes, from within the app by tapping the Apple sharing symbol -- a square with an embedded up arrow -- in the Reports view. Apple's Messages app needs to be installed and configured on your iPad. Yes, if your iPad's is on a network with an AirPrint compatible printer. I don't have an AirPrint compatible printer." }, { "question": "What now?", "answer": "Email your reports to a desktop or laptop from which printing is possible. You can also export your reports to a cloud service -- Dropbox or Google Drive, for example -- that's accessible by a desktop or laptop with printing abilities." }, { "question": "Can I save reports on the iPad or to a cloud-based service like Dropbox?", "answer": "Yes. Make sure you have the cloud-based storage service installed and configured on your iPad. Other popular choices are iCloud (much improved since iOS 9) and Google Drive." }, { "question": "Do you support the box score format favored by most newspapers?", "answer": "Yes. After displaying the Box Score, tap the Apple sharing icon and select \"Share Text\"." }, { "question": "Our state has a website for posting results -- can I post our results on that website?", "answer": "Yes, you can post your results anywhere you'd like. Our reports generate PDF, image and text output, though not all reports support all output formats." }, { "question": "Can the referee sign the scorebook?", "answer": "Yes. Starting with iOS 11, using the built in Apple Annotation tools. For pre-iOS 11 installations, download the Adobe Acrobat app (free) from the app store. You can \"share\" the scorebook report with the Adobe Acrobat reader and the ref can sign -- finger tip or stylus -- the book in that app. Adobe Acrobat will keep a copy of the signed scorebook, it isn't stored in Takedown Scoring and Stats." }, { "question": "Do you support auto-posting results to Facebook?", "answer": "No. Facebook usage guidelines prohibit auto-posting. This feature was removed in Release 2.8.1. Sorry, not our decision." }, { "question": "Yes, it's easy to add a custom hashtag to Twitter posts..\nHow is Takedown LIVE different from posting my results to a social network?", "answer": "Takedown LIVE displays detailed scoring action as it happens using the same scoring grid and notation as Takedown Scoring and Stats. Takedown LIVE is an app for iOS devices. Takedown Scoring and Stats posts to your team's Twitter timelines end-of-period and end-of-match scores, not individual scoring action. Use the Twitter or Facebook apps on mobile or a browser on the desktop to view the live scoring posts." }, { "question": "Can I post to Takedown LIVE and Twitter simultaneously?", "answer": "Yes, you can post your results anywhere you'd like. Most sites accept PDF or text and both formats are available for the Box Score." }, { "question": "Can I embed the live scoring results on my team's website?", "answer": "Yes, easily. To see an example on this website, click here. For instructions on embedding your Takedown Scoring and Stats automated scoring tweets on your team's website, click here. With some development effort, it is possible to have a Takedown LIVE-style presentation embedded on your team website." }, { "question": "Can I install Takedown Scoring and Stats and Takedown LIVE on the same iPad?", "answer": "Yes. This is a convenient way for coaches to follow their team if its wrestlers are split between two venues -- JV in City A and Varsity in City B -- or between multiple gyms at the same venue. I see the Takedown LIVE symbol on various websites like WrestleStat." }, { "question": "What does that mean?", "answer": "We make Takedown LIVE data available to qualified third parties to improve the availability of scoring-related information. WrestleStat is a one of our partners. See more here. If using a hard wired connection, the iPad must be running iOS 9. A Mini 1 is a good device to use for a hard-wired connection." }, { "question": "What kind of display should I use?", "answer": "Any display with an HDMI input. We've tested displays with DVI inputs, using and HDMI to DVI converter, but it isn't as reliable as HDMI." }, { "question": "What size monitor is supported?", "answer": "Any size will work. We've run on 20\" computer monitors and ceiling mounted, four-sided Daktronics monitors at Stanford." }, { "question": "Does the Scoreboard display team logos?", "answer": "Yes, for My Team and the Opponent if the logos are uploaded to the app." }, { "question": "Where can I find team logos?", "answer": "We don't know of a central source for scholastic team logos. Some league or section websites have a member logo repository. School websites, of course, have logos." }, { "question": "Are you part of Trackwrestling?", "answer": "No. You can choose to save a lot of time by letting Takedown copy your match results and weigh-ins to your Trackwrestling account, but that's your decision. If you like typing, then don't use this feature. It's up to you." } ]

A non-funded partner has a role within the project, it actively participates and spend hours work in delivering something to GeoERA that is relevant for the end-result of the GeoERA project. This can be a governmental agency, a industry partner, an academia partner, etc. A non-funded partner becomes part of the project by signing the Project Agreement. An external stakeholder (from government, industry or academia) that wants to follow a project and likes to be closely informed is very much invited to do so. It is important to keep external stakeholders closely involved, so that relevant applied research finds its way to the end-user as soon as possible. Since these stakeholders do not deliver something to GeoERA and they are not mentioned in the activities that are being carried out in the workpackages and there are no dependencies (they do not deliver something that contributes to the end-result of the GeoERA project), they are not a non-funded party." }, { "question": "Q: Do the proposals need to be signed by the Director?", "answer": "A: The proposals do not need separate signatures of the directors, since they have already signed the Grant Agreement and signed for their commitment as indicated in Table 1 of JC Doc. 3 Admissibility and Eligiblity.

However, it is understood this depends on the activities you are going to carry out. In case you will need substantial consumables or additional travel, which clearly results from the described activities in the proposal, you can exceed this percentage if a good justification is provided." }, { "question": "Q: How many project reporting periods are there?", "answer": "In these reports (financial and progress) the Project Lead reports to the GeoERA board. Besides those reporting periods the Project lead will have to submit the cumulative expenditure for the Project to the designated MRO via e-mail for the purpose of GeoERA Co-fund Action. This is a number which I need at the end of every year to submit to the European Commission (NB this is not a report!)." }, { "question": "Q: Can I add a Linked Third Party?", "answer": "A: Read about it in JC Doc 3. You can add a Linked Third Party in case you are legally linked with each other independent of GeoERA. The addition of a Linked Third Party requires approval by the GeoERA General Assembly and the European Commission, and requires an Amendment to the Grant Agreement. This needs to be requested by the Coordinator." }, { "question": "Q: Does the proposal also need to contain the specified budget for the Linked Third Parties?", "answer": "A: Yes. See Art. 4.1 of the Grant Agreement: The ‘estimated budget’ for the action contains the estimated eligible costs and the forms of costs, broken down by beneficiary (and linked third party) and budget category." }, { "question": "Q: Who has to submit each project proposal by the 12th January?", "answer": "A: The Project Lead of every Project Proposal will have to submit the proposal, on behalf of the other participants, within the ISAAC online submission tool for GeoERA. This implies that the GeoERA partners, that do not intend to lead a project, will not have to register into the system." }, { "question": "Q: What is the EU reimbursement rate for the GeoERA projects?", "answer": "A: This is 29,7%. The official reimbursement rates in ERA-NETS is 33%. However, it has been agreed in the Grant Agreement that 10% of the 33% is withheld for the coordination costs of GeoERA (33-3,3 = 29,7)." }, { "question": "Q: Can I subcontract activities?", "answer": "A: See Article 13 and 35 of the H2020 AMGA. You are allowed to subcontract activities that are clearly activities outside of the capabilities of the GSOs of the GeoERA consortium themselves, e.g. accounting, buying website-space, specific analyses you and/or the other GSOs do not have laboratories for, etc. Subcontracting may cover only a limited part of the action. The beneficiaries must award the subcontracts ensuring the best value for money or, if appropriate, the lowest price. In doing so, they must avoid any conflict of interests. The beneficiary/beneficiaries, that subcontract remain fully responsible for the work done by the subcontractor." }, { "question": "Q: How can I become participant of a Project?", "answer": "A: You can become a participant of a Project if you are 1) a beneficiary (member of the GeoERA Consortium), 2) a linked third party to one of these beneficiaries, or 3) a non-funded partner. Details are described in Document No JC 3, Admissibility and Eligibility." }, { "question": "Q: How can I propose a Project Proposal?", "answer": "A: Project Proposals must be submitted using a template which will be available on the Call page when the Stage Two Call is launched." }, { "question": "Q: How will the Project Proposals be evaluated and selected?", "answer": "A: Preceding the Evaluation, submitted project proposals will be checked for Admissibility and Eligibility (see Document No JC 3) by the GeoERA Secretariat. Then eligible Project Proposals will be forwarded to the Expert Panel. Eligible proposals will be subject to an Independent Expert Evaluation (see Document No JC 8, Evaluation and Selection), following the general H2020 evaluation rules and award criteria. The Expert Panel will prepare a consensus report for each Project Proposal and establish a ranking list on the basis of which Project Proposals will be funded. Read here about the ranking procedure.

[ { "question": "Do I need to adapt my cells into CD FortiCHO™ before starting an experiment using it?", "answer": "A: You may find that cell lines created in media other than GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ may need several passages to adapt to this fortified medium environment. We provide a recommended protocol for transferring cells into GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ culture in the Product Profile Sheet that comes with the product and that can be reviewed on our catalog website. 2." }, { "question": "Since GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ is fortified, can I still add feeding supplements to my culture?", "answer": "A: GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ was created to advance the ability of batch culture to higher cell densities, longer culture duration and higher titers even before feeding. However, you may still use fed-batch conditions to increase titers. In fact, in our testing, using a limited glucose fed-batch culture (avoiding depletion of glucose), titers over 1g/L we obtained in one of our test cell lines. With addition of EfficientFeed™ supplements, it was possible to boost this titer to levels over 2.5g/L. One recommendation, to avoid lower results than expected, is to first add the feed on the day when the cell line achieves ½ maximum cell density in GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ without the feed. 3." }, { "question": "When should I choose GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ versus CD OptiCHO™ or CD CHO?", "answer": "A: Assuming you have the ability to consider base medium options, we would recommend testing more than one of our options for a particular cell line. If you’ve optimized conditions for fed-batch as a platform in CD OptiCHO™ or CD CHO, you may wish to compare results you could gain with CD FortiCHO™ to see if it can add to the productivity of your cell line. Should you only have room to test one GIBCO® base medium, we would recommend testing CD FortiCHO™ medium after adapting your cells according to our recommended protocol. 4." }, { "question": "When should I do my first day of feeding for a culture using GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™?", "answer": "A: Because of the nutrient fortification of CD FortiCHO™, we have found that cell lines respond better to feeding when feeds are added first on the day when the cell line achieves ½ maximum cell density in CD FortiCHO™ without the feed. 5." }, { "question": "What Feeds do you recommend I use with GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™?", "answer": "A: It is possible to use any of the EfficientFeed™ nutrient supplement products to CD FortiCHO™ medium. Because there is some variability among cell lines, we would recommend starting with the CHO CD EfficientFeed™ Kit to determine, through testing, the best feed or combination that would work best for your cell line. We would note that we have a product that is available as a stocked custom called CD EfficientFeed™ C AGT (A11525) that has shown good results when used with CD FortiCHO™ in some cell lines we or our customers have tested. 6." }, { "question": "Does GIBCO® CD FortiCHO™ contain 2-mercaptoethanol (2-ME)?", "answer": "A: This product was formulated without 2-ME.

But I can tell you that we use WordPress as a base, using a modified Thirty Ten child theme. The site in its current form took about 40 hours for someone with web experience to produce.

I’d like to work for Brawsome." }, { "question": "Can I send you my resume?", "answer": "A. That’s fantastic, but please don’t. I hate to be a jerk about it but Brawsome is currently a small operation and we don’t have the capacity to check and store lots of resumes, so sending your resume out of the blue will be a waste of everyone’s time.

No matter what your skillset, if you’re creative enough and have the drive you’ll find a way to make games, there are oodles of tools out there and you should really do your own digging. Go to conferences and events where games people are likely to be. Check out the IGDA, there’s probably a chapter near you! Hang out on forums where gamers might hang out, like indiegamer.com. Focus on why you want to be in this industry and the games you really want to make, the more focus you have the more likely you’ll be able to achieve that.

Though the simple reality is MacGuffin’s Curse was a significantly more expensive development in terms of time and money, but did not make the return of Jolly Rover, so in terms of where to focus time, games more like Jolly Rover, i.e. traditional point and click adventures, will most likely be the focus of Brawsome. Unfortunately the Venn Diagram of people who like deep puzzles plus narrative-adventure is smaller than first thought. That being said, traditional point and click adventures are Brawsome’s favourite games to make! A. December 2018 – Currently working on a prototype for a space adventure. Using Adventure Creator in Unity and likely targeting high resolution 2D. Will be looking at funding options in 2019. Q." }, { "question": "Where does the name Brawsome come from?", "answer": "A. It comes from the words Braw and Awesome. I came up with it when I was living in the UK for a time. I wanted a word that didn’t come up with many hits when I typed it into Google that couldn’t be confused with any other company or thing, which also sounded awesome. Q." }, { "question": "Where is Brawsome located?", "answer": "We’re in Victoria, Australia. Currently anyone that works for Brawsome works out of their own home, which is really the only way we can afford to make awesome independent games rather than some licensed crap just to keep the doors open. Q." }, { "question": "How do you afford to keep making games?", "answer": "Well the big ones like Jolly Rover can only be done with some investment. The Victorian government has thus far been pretty ace in supporting Brawsome’s endeavours thus far, which is lucky because raising private investment for games in Australia is both very hard and ultimately not worth it, especially for the kinds of game we want to produce, which are fun as opposed to just making money. But most people working on Brawsome projects have to have other things going on to make ends meet. Being able to work on an independent game project full time is a massive luxury not many of us can afford. Q. I’d like to pay Brawsome money to make a game for me. And we’d like to let you! But if you look at our portfolio you’ll see we like to focus on humorous non-action games with fun characters and stories, so if you’re contacting us to make a dress-up game or a FarmVille rip off we hope you’re not disappointed when we politely decline the offer. However if the game looks like it’s going to be genuinely hilarious and fun to work on we’ll definitely consider it.

[ { "question": "What books do you use for research?", "answer": "Tiger's Dream is on the back burner right now while I work on a still untitled Egyptian book for my new publisher, Delacorte." }, { "question": "How many books will there be in the tiger series?", "answer": "Contact Contact my agent, Alex Glass, at Trident Media Group. Keep in mind that I usually don't travel out of state unless I have a new book to promote but I am always open to doing events in Oregon, Washington, Utah, and Arizona when I visit family. I love meeting fans and doing book signings and enjoy doing school presentations in particular. J.K Rowling (Harry Potter Series), Chris Paolini (Eragon Series), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight Saga), John Steinbeck, Walter Farley, Jules Verne, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Orson Scott Card, and many more! I was fascinated with Chris Paolini’s story and when I found out he was such a young author and carried around his manuscript for four years before getting it published on his own, I was even more impressed with his grit and determination. The science fiction of Orson Scott Card and Jules Verne carries me away to places I never imagined. When I was young, I wanted to be Laura Ingalls and ride horses like Alec and have great adventures like they did. For a list of books I recommend, scroll down just a little further. The personal stories of Stephenie Meyer and J.K. Rowling really touched me. Both women just decided one day to give writing a try and the course of their lives changed. One day I woke up and decided I was going to give it a shot, too. I always loved creative writing in middle school and high school, sci-fi and fantasy being my favorite, and have been an avid reader all my life, but I never considered it as a career. Seeing Rowling and Meyer--two self-trained writers--have the courage to give writing a try inspired me to channel my creative energy into imagining and writing the Tiger’s Curse series. I write at my desk near a window with a great view of Oregon pine and beautiful houses. I always light a candle when I write as a reminder to include the senses of smell, touch, taste, sight, and sound in my writing. It has to be quiet and, until recently, my dog always slept at my feet. That's my comfort zone when writing. I really love writing in the afternoons because that’s when things get quiet. In the mornings I like to write personal correspondence to people who write to me about my books and do the research on the exotic locations I write about. I walk everyday and listen to music that inspires me to keep writing, but I can't listen to music and write at the same time because I get too distracted. Here is my list of books I recommend. Check back because I'll keep adding more. To see what I'm reading now, follow me on Goodreads. I've worked in a variety of jobs. I know how to make a Big Mac and a Big Bacon Classic. I know how to decorate cakes, work a salad bar, and put sprinkles on donuts. I've managed a Chinese kitchen and learned how to make fried rice, stir fry, and homemade egg rolls, but for most of my adult life I've worked as an American Sign Language interpreter. I've interpreted from Elementary School through Graduate School and most recently I worked as a video relay interpreter, which uses modern video technology to help facilitate phone calls between Deaf and hearing people. I would credit three teachers for helping me develop my English skills. Two of my teachers were at Gridley Middle School in Tucson. I took Mr. Snider for two years, I think for sixth and eighth grade English. He encouraged me to write stories. I can't remember the name of the other teacher. She was an older woman, which doesn't mean much, because everyone is old to a seventh grader. I remember she loved Tom Selleck and had a picture of him in a Speedo on the back of her door. The thing about her that I remember the most was that she had large posters of all twelve of the Greek gods surrounding her room. I spent an entire year looking at Zeus, Athena, Ares, Demeter, and Aphrodite. It made a big impact on me. I wanted to learn their stories and became fascinated with mythology because of her. She also made us memorize Juliet's \"What's in a rose?\" speech. I still remember that today and thought it was wonderfully romantic. The third teacher taught Shakespeare at Sahuaro high school. Shakespeare was like a secret code that got you into an exclusive club, at least that's how she made me feel. She was an awesome teacher. I'm forever grateful to her. If any of you teachers ever read this, please contact me. I'd love to chat. I check email and work on my correspondence in the morning then write in the afternoons. When I finish a chapter, I get my husband who also works from home and we go over it together. He reads the entire thing out loud, we argue about punctuation, and then when we’re done, I send it out with pictures to my early reading group who give me their thoughts and feedback. When I'm in full on deadline mode I try to write 1-2 chapters per week. The pros are you can create something that is perfect for you. Sometimes I watch a television program, or a movie, or read a book and I think, I really like it but I’d like it so much better if it had this. In creating my own story I can focus on the things that I love the most. Another pro is being able to share my story with others. My husband gave me a stuffed white tiger for Christmas a few years ago and my brother-in-law who was visiting said, \"That's the strangest Christmas present I've ever heard of.\" My whole family just stared at him and I said, \"Wow! It's like I've given birth to a child and you didn't know.\" Writing a book is a life-altering experience and one you want to share with everybody. The con of writing is that it’s a lot of work. I once told a friend that I wish someone would come along and finish it for me because I enjoy reading much more than writing. It takes a lot of mental energy and every once in a while a plot twist will stump me. Usually, I sleep on it, and the answer pops into my brain by morning. Most of my ideas come from books. Two of my favorites are reference books-one is about dream interpretation and the other is about signs and symbols. I have dozens of books about the mythologies of the world and keep detailed notes of any cool ideas I find. The tests of the four houses actually came from a myth found in Mayan culture. I also get a lot of ideas from dreams. My husband says he doesn't dream at all or at least doesn't remember them when he wakes up, but I remember mine. I write them down and hope to turn them all into books someday. For the Tiger series, I felt it was very important to involve a person from the literary world experienced with Indian culture. Through internet research and emails, I found Sudha Seshadri, a fantastic collaborator and confidante who has given me much needed advice and has become an enthusiastic supporter of the series. I have an early reading group made up of close family and friends who read my book chapter by chapter and offer insights and feedback. When I'm finished, I reread a hard copy of the entire book and do my own revisions. Then the manuscript moves on to my editor at Sterling. She goes through the whole document and we go back and forth several times until we’re satisfied with the content. After that it goes to a copy editor who makes sure everything is just right. I have never been to India though I would really like to visit. I had to research everything from what kinds of cars are popular there to what the Mumbai airport looked like to where the forests are found. I spent a lot of time on Google maps zooming into the cities and forests and trying to figure out the distances between places. I studied the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve for a whole day and didn't even end up putting it in the book. The Oregon places I can write easily but India took a lot of work and many, many days of study. When I was writing the Hampi section, I went back and forth studying and learning about the different buildings in the ruins as I wrote. Sometimes I study one thing and it leads to several others. For example, recently I was studying about the Kraken and of how the Vikings first wrote about it, and then I learned about the Vikings using a sunstone to figure the position of the sun even when surrounded by thick fog. It was so interesting I added that into Voyage as well. A lot of Mr. Kadam's facts come from this. Indian mythology is very complex because the same god or goddess can have many incarnations with different names, appearances, and personality traits. My Indian mythology is “westernized” meaning I took the basic premise and either romanticized it to fit my theme or put my own spin on it so it made sense in my own mind. Bottom line-don’t try to pass a test on Indian mythology based on my version, however, I hoped to make it seem real enough that if you happened to visit Hampi you’d look for the statue and the entrance to Kishkindha. Yes. With an early reading group comprised of family and friends. They all love me which means they can be brutally honest and know I won't ostracize them, at least not for longer than a week. Kelsey's grandmother is very similar to one of mine. My grandmother had a flower garden, made me biscuits and gravy, and gave me a special blanket. I’ve also named most of the secondary characters after my nieces and nephews. I'm a big fan of Moonlighting, the television show with characters David and Maddie portrayed by Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepard back in the eighties. I loved how they fought all the time but desperately wanted to be together. It always made me giggle. So I incorporated giggle-inducing lover's spats into my books. Interesting fact: Kelsey's real mother is named Madison Hayes in honor of my niece and Madelyn Hayes, the character in Moonlighting. Kelsey is brave. I was never a risk taker like her and I admire that about her. She also has the courage to do what she believes is right even if it causes her pain. Ren is a poet at heart—sensitive, thoughtful, and kind. He sacrifices himself for others and makes everyone around him feel like they belong and are important. I’m a sucker for romance and those are my favorite parts to read over and over. Visually, I love the action scenes. I’m a special effects geek so I can picture them in my head. To see them come to life on the big screen would be over-the-top awesome. The parts that are the most fun to write, however, are the fights. I really loved the show Moonlighting which ran back when Bruce Willis still had hair. He and Maddie Hayes, which is where I got Kelsey’s last name by the way, had the best romantic tension fights. I wanted to put that into my books, not only because I think it keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, but because it’s really, really fun. I enjoy the fast back and forth dialogue. Smart and witty verbal jousting is exciting to invent. For the answer to this question, I went to Sudha Seshadri, my advisor/editor from India, who says, \"Royals were well versed and some sent their sons to England and Europe to study. Many had English Governesses and Artists from Europe staying with them. Due to colonists like the English, French, Portuguese and so on Indians, both royal and merchants, picked up many languages.\" No. He got a replica. He discovers it in the prologue of Tiger's Voyage and doesn't take the news well. Dhiren is like Dhi as in dishes or dip and then add ren. Kadam is Ka as in cut and dom as in domino. Nilima is Ni as in knit, lee, ma with the emphasis on the \"lee\". This was from a Martha Stewart show in 2001. Love these things. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with Silpats (French nonstick baking mats). Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda, and set aside. Right now the movie is in the screenwriting stage. Julie Plec is adapting the first book for the big screen and I couldn't be more excited because I love her work. I'm a big fan of The Vampire Diaries, Kyle XY, Dawson's Creek and she wrote all of those!

Yes. Audible has purchased the rights for the audio books for the Tiger Series. They've done the digital version and Brilliance has produced the hard copy CDs. They are for sale online. Random House will be doing the audio book for the Egyptian story. The Tiger’s Curse Series is currently available in ebook format from the Nook ebookstore on BN.com, the iBook Store, and ebookstore.Sony.com. . Yes, here is a current list of foreign publishers. Korea, Woongjin Think Big Co. I can't share a lot about it yet but it will definitely have all the same action, romance, adventure, and mythology of the Tiger Series plus the added coolness of mummies. Here is the official blurb my new publisher, Delacorte, put out about it. I think the hardest part for me is just opening the document. Once the file is open and my hands are poised over the keys, I do just fine. It’s often easy to get distracted by everything else going on. My husband works at home too and we interrupt each other often. Also, if I get up and see the laundry basket is full, I may end up doing laundry instead of writing. I’m something of a clean freak. So I’d say setting aside the time to just focus on the book is my biggest obstacle. For me, writing is like a road trip. I travel from point A to point B, say Los Angeles to New York City. There are dozens of ways to get there and I give myself leeway to travel down different paths that peak my interest. I may stop off in Denver for a few days or take a day trip to Memphis but I always turn around after my wandering and fix my gaze on New York. I’m a bit of an organizational freak. I like to catalog ideas into neat little spaces, but every once in a while I come up with the name for a chapter, like, Pirates, for example, and have no idea why I chose that name. Then I brainstorm and come up with the perfect thing to put there. As far as the writing process goes, I like to establish a routine. Writing at the same time every day, surrounding yourself with things that make you comfortable, having a huge bottle of water or your favorite drink nearby, and keeping reference material near is helpful. I got a mini-fridge which I fill with snacks and drinks in case I’m on a roll and don’t want to head downstairs. For me, I light a candle to remind me to incorporate the sense of smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound in my writing. If your character doesn’t feel it neither does the reader. Keeping a notebook or a file to store ideas when they come to you is always a good idea. I also use pictures when I write. If I’m trying to come up with a setting or a character, I search images on Google and select a picture or series of pictures and keep it open on my computer as I’m describing it. Often this will break me out of any block that comes along. I believe writing can never be a bad thing. If you have a desire to write you should. My grandfather wrote cowboy books. He never got published and he died before I was born so those books are the only way most of his grandchildren ever got to know what he was like. Always seek out traditional publishing first, but if you’ve exhausted your options, then there is nothing wrong with self-publishing. When I was self-published, I was perfectly content and happy just sharing my material with others. Whether I have ten fans or ten thousand, writing makes me happy. If writing is something that makes you happy too, then by all means, write! I was honestly shocked at just how many e-readers are out there. I self published my first two books originally and just before they went on sale, I was offered a deal on preparing my manuscript to be an e-book. I figured I wanted the widest audience possible so I said yes. Right away the e-book sales shot above the hard copy sales. In January of 2010, about three months after they went on the market, there was an incredible spike in sales. I went from selling three hundred e-books a month to three hundred in a day. Soon I’d been contacted by publishers in China, Korea, and Thailand and by a movie producer. An agent, and my publisher Sterling, soon followed. The wonderful and extremely fortunate thing about my publisher is that they shared my vision with getting the books out to fans as quickly as possible. They not only agreed to launch my three completed books in the same year but they bumped up the launch of their new imprint, Splinter, almost a year ahead of time. We all worked hard to get Tiger’s Curse on the market as soon as possible. At this point in my career I don't really read reviews left by readers. There comes a time in every author's journey when they have to let that go and for me that happened pretty much when we launched Tiger's Curse. My hubby still reads reviews but he has learned not to share them with me. I tend to dwell on bad reviews and reading them at this point is counterproductive. There really isn't anything anyone can say now that I haven't heard before. Out of one bad and fifty good I’ll remember the exact phrasing of the bad. I am a very sensitive person that way. I once got an email from a reader who listed thirty things I'd done wrong in my book with actual numbers in front of her thoughts. By the fifth one I was crying. When I got to the end she said, \"By the way, you should know I'm thirteen.\" I was angry with myself for getting all worked up over the critiques of a thirteen year old. That was a powerful lesson for me. At the end of the day you have to just tell yourself that you do the best you can and know that you can't please everybody.

I'm sure there are errors but rest assured this was done to the best of my ability while also engaging the help of an Indian editor. I chose a Beauty and the Beast theme and then focused on my beast first. I immediately rejected the idea of a vampire or a werewolf and made a list of real animals. After I crossed off bear, lion, a eagle, I setted on tiger then switched to a white tiger because there is something already magical about them. Next was my setting. I thought white tigers came from Russia so I began researching Russia but later I discovered that the white tiger is Bengal and ended up switching my story to India which worked out perfectly. Authors typically play no part in the casting of movies and since I've never been an actress myself, I have no idea how one would go about it. I do know there are both open and closed casting calls. Closed essentially means, \"Don't call us, we'll call you.\" My guess is that most movies are cast that way. If my producers ever open cast for Kelsey or a walk on role for a fan, I will surely let you all know. Otherwise, there is nothing I can do to influence casting. Of course you are welcome to try the normal Hollywood routes and I wish you luck." } ]

The download is sent to the customer once our servers verify the payment has been completed with the PayPal servers. The special download link is presented to the Customer after they have completed payment at PayPal and is also sent to the email address they used during checkout. They can also use the Order Lookup System to retrieve their download. You can view the payment and file delivery process using our sample product here.

Some examples are: an originally authored ebook on how to repair electronics, a piece of software, an original piece of music, or even photo images and video.

Our system also provides you with a snippet of HTML that also inserts a Buy Now button image that makes it even easier to make your file available for purchase." }, { "question": "Question: What email address should I enter?", "answer": "Answer: The email address you enter in the product creation process is where all notifications will be sent to. This includes payment notifications from PayPal. Therefore it must be a working email address if you expect to receive payment for your item.

If you do not enter a valid address, we will have no means with which to notify you of a purchase." }, { "question": "Question: What if I don't have a PayPal account?", "answer": "Answer: You do not need to setup a PayPal account to begin selling on our system. However, if you do sell an item, you will need to create a PayPal account to claim your funds. When a customer purchases your item, PayPal will send an email to the address entered in the product creation process notifying you that you have funds waiting to be claimed from the purchase. You then simply go to PayPal and create a new PayPal account using the same email address. Once you have created your account, you then have access to the money that was sent to you. You can withdraw that money to a bank account, receive a check from PayPal, use it for online purchases, and more." }, { "question": "Question: I need more options than what's provided, how do I sell my item?", "answer": "Answer: The PayLoadz Express system is intended to sell basic items.

[ { "question": "How do I keep my hardwood floors safe from water damage?", "answer": "Avoid having standing water on them. You can map them with a water based solution, but you should wring the mop thoroughly before moping. The floor should be dry in less than 5 minutes after mopping. If there is a water damage situation and the floors have a lot of water – it is best to call PuroClean. Both the hardwood floor and the floor beneath must be addressed. This gets very complicated and is best done by professionals." } ]
[ { "question": "I’ll answer the questions with the same response I give to those who have asked in the past as well as comment (or perhaps moan is the right word?", "answer": "ha ha) on the question itself in italics. I’m honoured to know you like my work enough to want to commission me. I will need to know exactly what you want created before I’m able to give a price. For example a pencil sketch of a head will take considerably less time and therefore cost less than illustrating an entire book or creating 6 months worth of video game assets. The Hire Me page on this site was created to answer this question and give customers an understanding of how to commission artwork from me. Please appreciate this question gets handed to me at least once a week so can’t help let out a sigh every time! Imagine asking a builder “how much do you charge?” to build a house. It could be inexpensive if you only want it for your kids to play in or dog to lay in, or it could cost tens of millions if it needs dozens bedrooms of and 20 bathrooms! Or what about walking into a restaurant and asking “how much do you charge?”." }, { "question": "There’s going to be a big difference between a side salad and lobster dish, so surely most people would at least ask if they have a menu if not specifying, for example, “how much do you charge for a salad”?", "answer": "Mostly Photoshop CC software with a Wacom Cintiq 27QHD graphics tablet. I’ll occasionally use pencil, ink and markers for traditional work. I’ve likely already posted #photoshop and #cintiq in the description on social media art posts, yet people still ask on these posts what I use. I do wish people would pay more attention." }, { "question": "I think a lot of people are looking for expert insider information with this one to help give them the edge, but does it really matter what I use?", "answer": "You can achieve similar results to most things I create with dozens of different software or traditional media, so much of the time it comes down to personal preference and my methods may not suit other people. It’s strange that most other artists also list this as a most frequently asked question when there are so many other important or interesting questions that could be asked. I’ve written art tutorial books which discuss tools of the trade in far more depth than I can cover in a reply online, so better just to buy those- they’re reasonably priced and not going to break the bank. Sorry. I’m too busy with work and commissions. I feel it’s disrespectful to ask an artist or any professional to work for free. It’s like walking into a hairdressers and asking for a free haircut. Like most creatives, I have so many ideas for things I’d like to create that I don’t have time or want to devote mental energy to focusing on someone else’s project (unless compensated). I especially wouldn’t have time if I’m spending vast amounts of my life drawing pictures for anyone who asks." }, { "question": "Does anyone ever actually say yes to this request?", "answer": "I would imagine every artist gets asked this question all the time and I’m sure we all face-palm every time. I’m in my mid thirties so quite a long time. Read my Backstory for more info. I’d rather aspiring artists buy and read my How to Draw Manga books (in this site’s Shop or via Amazon) which gives hundreds of tips. If you’ve read my books cover to back I guarantee you’ll learn something new and anything needs more clarifying, let me know and I’m happy to help as much as I can. I know everyone’s looking for a free education, but sometimes putting your hand in your pocket and investing just a small amount in a tutorial book can be such a time saver. I also think if you’ve paid for information, you’re more likely to take on board what’s being said plus I’d feel happier to see people using what I teach in the books than me handing them some general advice on social media which wont stick or be sufficient to make people want to sit down, try a new technique and feel inspired to create. I don’t have a good answer to this one. Every artist will need to find their own way to success. I’m not deliberately trying to be vague, but it would be impossible for anyone to replicate what I did to established myself." } ]

[ { "question": "What is the Trader Development Programme?", "answer": "The Trader Development Programme – known as the TDP – is a 2-3-year programme aimed at graduates with 3-5 years work experience. Tailored to your skills and aptitude, it’s designed to help you develop the skills and gain the experience required to build a successful career as a trader at Shell. To apply, you’ll complete a short online application form and submit a CV. You’ll then be invited to complete two online psychometric assessments, designed to test your numerical ability and logical thinking. Successful applicants will be invited to a telephone interview with our trading assessors. This hour-long session will consist of a case study, and competency-based interview with motivational questions. If you progress to the final stage, you’ll be invited to an assessment centre at a Shell office. You’ll take part in several individual assessments including an investment scenario, a commercial case study and a structured interview. Candidates will also have the opportunity to meet and network with people working in the trading businesses to gain a better understanding of the culture and career opportunities in Shell Trading and Supply. We’ll aim to let you know within 48 hours of your assessment centre day whether you’ve made it on to the TDP. If successful, you’ll be allocated to a trading desk based on our business needs and your individual suitability." }, { "question": "How long does it typically take to complete the programme?", "answer": "Given that the programme is tailored according to the individual’s current level of proficiency as well as subjected to individual learning style and pace, the duration will vary. However typically it would range from 2 to 3 years." }, { "question": "When do I start trading?", "answer": "The Trader Development Programme aims to provide all the training and experience you need in order to achieve what we call ‘Trader Readiness’. You will not be expected to start trading until you reach this level. We recognise that everyone comes with a different baseline of knowledge and professional experience but expect that all programme participants would be able to build the requisite skills to attain Trader Readiness within three years. Shell has an end-to-end value chain – we source, refine and supply energy as well as trading it. Assignments are designed to let you see the breadth of our business; they could span operations and include a range of commercial activities. Your Trading line manager will be the driving force in determining your assignments, as well as monitoring your performance and development during the programme." }, { "question": "How am I assessed during the TDP?", "answer": "As the programme unfolds, you’ll undergo assessments at appropriate junctures to evaluate your readiness towards achieving the required standard to become a fully-fledged trader. Formal assessment runs in tandem with regular performance reviews and informal feedback with your line manager. We will keep track of your performance, make sure you know how you are progressing and draw up relevant development plans to close out gaps." }, { "question": "How does trading at Shell differ from commodity trading houses or banks?", "answer": "We trade across a wide spectrum of product lines but, importantly, Shell is a fully integrated organisation. That means we don’t only trade assets – we also source, refine, produce and supply them. Add to that our global capacity and strong brand reputation, and it gives us an enviable platform from which to maximize opportunities and increase our optionality. Shell’s different market segments translate to potential opportunities to grow and progress across the organisation. Culturally, our focus on value generation across the entire chain creates an open and collaborative working culture, within and outside of teams, both regionally and globally. There is also a strong commitment to training and development here, that you don’t always find in smaller trading environments. It means that exceptional performers can find opportunities for overseas postings/ assignments, as well as being developed as future trading leaders." }, { "question": "Do I need any trading experience to apply for the TDP?", "answer": "Whilst trading experience is useful, it’s certainly not a requirement to join the TDP. We look for men and women who bring us diverse professional perspectives, life experiences and educational backgrounds. We are open to receiving applications from talented individuals who demonstrate an appetite for trading and the potential we’re looking for." }, { "question": "What do you look for in a good future trader?", "answer": "Traders have to be comfortable making critical decisions and taking calculated risks in a time-pressed and fast-paced environment. The market is very dynamic with constant changes, and you’ll be expected to quickly grasp the situation even if information is incomplete or ambiguous. Traders need strong numerical and commercial acumen to identify good deals and create commercial value. They take interest in markets and movements, and have the intellectual curiosity to keep track of geopolitical and economic developments that could influence the market. Being a team player is also important. Traders build collaborative partnerships with their stakeholders and team mates; they can leverage their networks and relationships to help them they can make the best trades at the right time." }, { "question": "What happens upon a successful completion of the TDP?", "answer": "Once you’re signed off as ‘trader ready’, you will be officially cleared to apply for junior trader roles. Subject to availability and business requirements, you may be placed into a trader role in the area/commodity you have gained experience in, or an alternative desk depending on business requirements. This is the start of your journey to developing deep trading expertise. Trading Managers will outline the competencies and experiences you need to focus on to continue to make progress. You can expect to be managing increasingly large books and interfacing with counterparties of growing status, complexity, value and risk." }, { "question": "What happens in case of an unsuccessful completion of the TDP?", "answer": "If an individual is not successful in completing the TDP, he or she will be supported to look for other more suitable roles within Shell." }, { "question": "If I’m not successful this time around, when can I re-apply?", "answer": "Cindy is passionate about diversity in trading and, as well as managing a global trading business, acts as a champion and mentor for many other women taking their first steps into the field.

The document provided is the right type of document. Pet and pet owner account data matches your own. The document is clear and legible." }, { "question": "Why do I have to upload a spay/neuter certificate for my pet?", "answer": "The City of Syracuse requires documentation that verifies a pet's rabies vaccination. Documentation is also required to verify that a pet has been spayed or neutered in order to receive the discounted rate. Requiring documentation ensures that pet information is accurate which is critical for identification reasons." } ]

Sometimes you can find us in the Asian aisle too. We can't promise your store will have every flavor in stock, but if you ask nicely, they'll probably be happy to order the flavor you're looking for. But since you're here, why not buy directly from our new [online store]." }, { "question": "Will Soy Vay® make me a better cook?", "answer": "It may not get you your own show on cable, but studies have shown that using Soy Vay® has led to a dramatic increase in kitchen popularity and requests for seconds and probably thirds." }, { "question": "Traditionally, our flavors are a perfect match for grilling or cooking meats and veggies, but why stop there?", "answer": "One of the things we love about our sauces and marinades is how they bring together unexpected flavors to create something amazing. Try drizzling our sauce over your weeknight tacos or use it as a base for stew. We even partnered with some guys to make Veri Veri Teriyaki® jerky, and it turned out awesome. So use your imagination and get cooking. Check out our recipe section for a little inspiration." }, { "question": "Is it safe to use Soy Vay® products if they've been left out over night?", "answer": "We wouldn't want you to lose a single drop of sauce, so be sure to put it back in the fridge after use. Soy Vay® is still safe to eat if your bottle has been unrefrigerated for two hours. However, for anything over two hours, we highly suggest you discard any sauce, marinade or food that's been left out without refrigeration to ensure food safety." }, { "question": "Is it still safe to eat Soy Vay® products after the \"best use by\" date?", "answer": "Unfortunately, your bottle of Soy Vay® will not last forever (even though we wish it would). All our products taste best when used within the “best by” date on the top of the cap." }, { "question": "Do Soy Vay® Products contain lactose?", "answer": "No, none of our Soy Vay® products contain lactose. But we did think about a teriyaki ice cream once … just once." }, { "question": "Do Soy Vay® Products contain gluten?", "answer": "Just to stay on the safe side, be sure to read the ingredients carefully and contact a medical professional if you have concerns about whether or not a product contains gluten." }, { "question": "Are Soy Vay® products certified kosher?", "answer": "Yes, indeed.

All other products, including our marinades, do not contain peanuts." }, { "question": "Why switch Soy Vay® bottles from glass to plastic?", "answer": "We made the switch from glass bottles to plastic bottles for several reasons. We heard the sad tale—from grocery stores and from you—that our glass bottles were cracking or shattering before they made their way into your kitchens. We knew we could make a change that would prevent this from happening in the future … enter, plastic bottles! And since glass is heavier than plastic, we were also contributing to fuel waste when transporting our bottles from the manufacturing site to your pantry shelf. By making our bottles lighter, we’re reducing our carbon footprint and doing right by Mother Nature." }, { "question": "How do you address the fact that plastic is less recyclable than glass?", "answer": "The Soy Vay® bottles you’re buying at your local store are PETE 1, which means it’s as recyclable as plastic comes. We’re doing our best to balance all aspects of environmental concern—fuel costs, recyclability, etc. — while ensuring that our delicious sauces are available to you when and where you want them. Yes, our new bottles are completely BPA-free." }, { "question": "Will the switch to plastic affect the taste of Soy Vay® sauces and marinades?", "answer": "Not on our watch. We have done extensive testing to ensure that the delightful, saucy flavor inside every Soy Vay® bottle tastes just as good coming out of our plastic bottles as our old ones." }, { "question": "Am I getting less sauce in the new plastic bottle?", "answer": "Absolutely not. You can expect the same amount of sauce as before — and a more juggle-friendly bottle." } ]

[ { "question": "What is the difference between an 'carrier oil' and an 'essential oil'?", "answer": "Essential oils are extracts from the root, bark, stem, leaves and aromatic portions of the plant. There are several extraction methods in practice like the steam distillation method, cold-pressing method and solvent extraction method to produce essential oils of absolute or concrete kinds. Essential oils are thin oils with strong aromas. They are very concentrated and are volatile and evaporate pretty quickly. Carrier Oils (also called base oils) are vegetable (and some animal-based) oils that are used to dilute essential oils. Since essential oils can cause skin irritations or itching when used in undiluted forms. Carrier oils are used as base oils to dilute them. They do not evaporate quickly and do not tend to have a strong aroma. Vegetable carrier oils are derived from the fatty portion of plants, like the seeds, nuts and kernels. Animal-based carrier oils come from the rendered and refined fat of the animal. Since each carrier oil has its own set of therapeutic benefits, an essential oil’s effectiveness depends on the proportion and properties of carrier oils used in the blend." }, { "question": "How long do your serum last?", "answer": "Our serums are good for up to 2 years from the date of purchase.

[ { "question": "Toilet location?", "answer": "That’s where Google Sheet comes in. ProBotDev Event Chatbot uses the information you put inside Google Sheet to answer inquiries. Sort of like FAQ, but interactive. For this to work, you need to structure the spreadsheet in a certain way. I have created a template that you can use—just create a copy and edit it. As you can see from the template, there are three tabs (sheets): Events, Speakers, and FAQ. Inside, there are some predefined columns. Note that the label of the sheets and the columns must not be changed. Also, keep in mind that everything will be imported as plain text because most messaging platforms don’t support text formatting, and you can’t use any formula other than “=IMAGE()”. This sheet is where you put extra information that can’t be set in Google Calendar. At the moment, ProBotDev Event Chatbot only takes a hero image. This sheet has two columns: Name and Hero Image. The name must be the exact match—but case-insensitive—with the one you put in Google Calendar. For example, if you put “Awesome Event” there, putting “AWESOME event” here will work, but simply “AWESOME” won’t. It doesn’t matter where you host the image as long as it’s accessible—verify it by opening the link in private/incognito mode in your browser. This sheet has 4 columns: “Name”, “Portrait”, “Bio”, and “Website”. The name must match the name (including any symbol) you put in Google Calendar. The bio can be up to 2,000 characters, but remember that most people will use your Event Chatbot from their phone, so shorter is better. Everything (except the name, obviously) is optional. This sheet has three columns: Event Name, Question, and Answer. For the event name, you can put “*” (star, without the quotes) which basically means, “all events.” You don’t need to repeat the event name; subsequent rows will assume the same name. The question column contains the “keys.” For example, when someone asks, “Where is this event?”, ProBotDev knows it’s ABOUT_EVENT, and will check your spreadsheet for the answer. If the sheet has empty answer for the key (or simply doesn’t exist at all), ProBotDev will try to find the fallback answer—the answer you put “*“. If it can’t find the fallback answer, it will say that it is not programmed to answer the question. Once the spreadsheet is ready (you can always refine it later, ProBotDev will auto-sync), head to ProBotDev and open the project, and select the Sheet. If you’re still confused, just open the template and create a copy, then use it as-is with the event chatbot from Google Calendar you created last time. Event Chatbot from a spreadsheet." } ]
[ { "question": "How can a property manager’s actions affect a claim?", "answer": "The property manager is the agent of the owner and we treat both as the same person. Both Residential Tenancies Acts and insurance law require that the owner/agent take steps to minimise the loss. In part, this means that the owner/agent needs to pursue breaches as fast as the law allows. If they don’t, the amount lost may be deemed to be increased by the irretrievable time lost as a result of not doing it. There is a danger of this lost time not being included in the claim settlement. We allow a reasonable time to issue notices. If an owner wants to give leeway to a defaulting tenant, the owner needs to know that they may be incurring some losses that are unrecoverable from insurance." }, { "question": "Do we cover hardship of a tenant?", "answer": "Yes. Under our Tenant’s Default section, we cover the owner for lost rent when the tenant obtains a court order cancelling the lease agreement. We treat it as a straightforward default of rent. It is important that the owner/property manager does not agree to the cancellation of the lease. The tenant should apply themselves to the court for relief and the property manager should continue to pursue the tenant for rent arrears until the relief is granted. We will treat the remainder of the lease as claimable in the normal way, provided appropriate measures are taken to re-tenant the property." }, { "question": "Do we cover death of a sole tenant?", "answer": "Yes. Under our Tenant’s Default section, when a sole tenant dies during a fixed-term or periodic tenancy, we treat the matter as if the tenant had left the premises. The property manager should take reasonable steps to obtain vacant possession and re-let the property. The property manager is also entitled to seek unpaid rent from the deceased estate up until the date of vacant possession. The only difference between this event and a regular default is that we do not have the right to pursue the deceased estate for the balance of the lease period rent. DELIBERATE DAMAGE IS WIDER THAN MALICIOUS DAMAGE. The test we apply is that if the intentional actions (not omissions) of a tenant would, if viewed by a reasonable person, be considered to lead to damage, then the damage is deliberate. For more information, please refer to the PDS." }, { "question": "How does the bond affect a claim?", "answer": "We do not deduct the bond from our claim. However, for tenancy matters, if the bond is not used up on legitimate non-insurance related matters, then the remainder of the bond is entitled to be kept by the owner to cover Deliberate Damage and Tenants Default losses. This means that the amount the owner needs to claim from us is reduced by the remaining amount." }, { "question": "Does the policy cover tenants on a periodic lease?", "answer": "Yes. Under our Tenant’s Default section, the only difference between a periodic lease and a fixed-term lease is the amount of notice each party is required to give to the other. In most states, a periodic lease requires 3 weeks’ notice. In the case of early vacation by the tenant under a periodic tenancy, we will pay the owner the rent they would have been entitled to if the tenant had given proper notice." }, { "question": "Do the tenants need to be in advance of their rent for any period of time?", "answer": "No, but they can’t be behind either. If the tenant is up-to-date, that’s good enough. If you are asked about PRIOR history of arrears and other breach of lease behaviour by the tenant, you will have to tell us about this before cover is granted." }, { "question": "Do we cover accidental damage?", "answer": "We cover accidental damage to fixed glass forming part of Contents as part of our Contents cover. Some other covers provide an accidental damage cover to other property with a substantial excess. If they treat each item of damage as a separate accident, a separate excess will apply to each item. Therefore the value derived from the cover is not very great. For this reason, we try not to provide what may be seen as a “Claytons” cover.

However, if you are insured and are claiming for Deliberate Damage you need to call CRM Brokers immediately and discuss the damage before starting repairs. If we want to collect some information about the damage, we will ask you to hold off repairs until this is done and we will pay for any rent loss arising from the additional delay. You should also complete the repairs as soon as is reasonably possible. Unnecessary delays caused by working weekends only (for example) and the like may prejudice your rent claim." }, { "question": "When do you start the process of re-tenanting?", "answer": "To avoid compromising the claim settlement, you should start the process of advertising for a new tenant immediately the premises is fit for viewing.

[ { "question": "What is the goal of Blaze Web Directory?", "answer": "Blaze Web Directory is a strong human edited web directory that is focused at providing a valuable resource for top quality listings to heavily benefit web site owners and provide a convenient resource for submitters looking for the beneficial method of web site promotion. Blaze Web Directory uses a new concept of ranking listings by bid amount, rather than traffic, alphabetical order, submission date, or Google PageRank. This approach offers more control and better promotion for web directory owners. Theoretically, every website on the Internet has a chance of becoming the most popular piece of virtual real estate in cyber space. Blaze Web Directory simply attempts to reflect that by ranking websites according to the dollar amount contributed for that website. A major benefit of such a ranking system is that it provides some indication of the quality of traffic from a particular website. This is the directory where advertisers will come looking for you, and visitors will find you. Yes. In reality, owners with deep pockets are in a better position. It is possible for a website to contribute a million dollars and stay in the number one position for eternity, but this is very unlikely. A more likely scenario would be having a popular blog with a million visits a month linking to Blaze Web Directory. As a result, the contributions increase steadily over time, keeping it in the number one position solidly. In addition, for Blaze Web Directory to achieve its goal, it must have a large enough sample in its database for the data to mean anything. Therefore, the funds generated can be put to good use by generating more traffic for the directory, which will attract new listings and benefit all existing ones. All websites need to start somewhere, so we fix a low one-time fee of USD$49.95 for all new listings. After that, anyone can add to the contribution to increase the ranking of a website. In the long run, every dollar counts. That's why anyone can contribute starting from USD$10.00 onwards. If two listings have the same amount of contribution, Blaze Web Directory will automatically rank the earlier listing higher. To contribute to an existing listing, click on the \"[Increase Ranking]\" icon at the bottom of the desired listing. Blaze Web Directory also helps by promoting the HTML link for all listings, making it available publicly for visitors to use the text links and help increase the rankings of your website. Blaze Web Directory is highly promoted and well maintained to offer powerful listings for web directory owners." } ]

[ { "question": "Do you have a question about deer impacts or solutions for your community?", "answer": "Chances are, another community has asked the same question. We have summarized many of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to community-based deer management here, along with responses that have been helpful for other communities. While questions are organized by role, some of the questions are repeated as they are relevant to multiple roles." }, { "question": "What is community-based deer management?", "answer": "Community-based deer management, or CBDM, involves collaboration of local entities (e.g., local governments, nongovernmental organizations) with state wildlife management agencies for the purpose of addressing a local deer management issue. CBDM efforts are undertaken to make decisions and design action strategies that will be implemented in a small geographic area, such as a village or town, municipal park system, or even a single neighborhood." }, { "question": "How do I find stakeholders to participate in our community's engagement processes?", "answer": "Identifying stakeholders to participate in stakeholder processes is challenging. Decker et al. 2002 suggest a number of routes to go to find stakeholder participants. First, you might consider consult experts, i.e. those who seem already to know much about your deer management problem. They may be in a good position to suggest others. If you are looking for representatives from specific groups, the best approach may be to have those groups select their own representatives to participate. You may also snowball sample stakeholders; once you have identified a few stakeholders, you can ask them to help you find others. You might also advertise for volunteers, or keep the process open to anyone who might want to join." }, { "question": "What does stakeholder engagement or involvement look like?", "answer": "Stakeholder engagement can be accomplished in many ways, so it does not look exactly the same in every community. Some communities get input from public meetings or comments on proposed actions; some collect information using surveys of community residents. Other communities involve stakeholders more directly, using in face-to-face deliberations like focus groups or workshops. Over time communities may gather information using a combination of several approaches. The best approach for engaging people will depend on factors such as: the level of conflict over deer, the number of stakeholders affected, how interested and aware stakeholders are in the deer management issue, how much information decision makers need from stakeholders, as well as any resource limitations your community might have. For more discussion on this, please see Decker et al. 2002." }, { "question": "Is there any way to avoid controversy around CBDM?", "answer": "Usually, no. It's best to assume that there will be controversy. Controversy typically arises around two issues: (1) whether or not deer impacts should be managed at all and (2) which methods of deer management are acceptable. Try and separate these two types of controversy. The first issue, whether or not deer impacts should even be managed, should be resolved before you tackle the acceptability of the approach taken to address those impacts. Engaging in well-designed stakeholder involvement efforts and informative communication can help communities constructively deal with these two sources of controversy." }, { "question": "Who should we include in discussions about local deer management?", "answer": "To understand and then work through a local deer management issue, it is important to engage people who represent the full range of deer-related interests and concerns in your community. But many communities find it challenging to identify and involve people with different “stakes” in local deer management decisions. Consulting with experts who already know much about local deer management can be a good place to start They may be able to suggest the types of people you should engaged in discussions. If you are looking for representatives from specific groups, the best approach may be to have those groups select their own representatives to participate in any group (e. g., Deer Task Force) formed to lead discussions about local deer management. Once you have identified a few individuals with particular interests or concerns, you can ask them to help you find others who should be involved in community discussions. You might also advertise for volunteers, or keep community committees open to anyone who might want to join. Lots of people claim to have expertise about wildlife management." }, { "question": "How do I know someone is really a wildlife expert?", "answer": "There are many kinds of experts you might consult throughout your community’s CBDM process. Different experts have different kinds of expertise, including expertise implementing the types of management alternatives a community is considering, expertise on state wildlife management laws and policies, and expertise on process management and public involvement. Some wildlife experts may work for or have worked for a government agency or organization, have university credentials, or be a certified wildlife biologist. It may also be helpful to get a sense of what kinds of experiences the expert you are considering has had with respect to deer management. Your community may benefit from consulting more than one expert for different phases." }, { "question": "How much information do we need to understand before my community makes a decision?", "answer": "There's no right amount of information your community needs to know in order to move forward. As described in the best practices described on this site, it's important to understand the nature of the deer management problem in your community, and to bring in content experts as needed. Education and learning is an important part of the CBDM process. However, it is possible for a community to experience \"paralysis by analysis\", feeling like there is still too much to learn before a decision can be made. But, at some point, your community will have to move forward. Do your due diligence regarding education and learning, make a decision, and when you reach the evaluation stage of the process, be willing to reassess your decision given any new information your community has learned." }, { "question": "How do I learn more about deer and deer management?", "answer": "Please see our resources tab to find a variety of information about deer and deer management that you may find interesting. Your county’s Cooperative Extension office may be another place you can contact to find out about any upcoming programs or workshops related to deer and deer management. Many counties' Cooperative Extension offices have natural resources specialists who may engage in outreach related to deer. I am interested in being involved in my community’s deer management planning process." }, { "question": "What do I do to become engaged?", "answer": "There are a variety of ways that different communities’ may involve community members in the deer management decision-making process. Some communities may implement a survey of residents; hold public meetings or workshops; recruit citizens to sit on a deer-management decision-making body; solicit feedback through a municipal website; or involve citizens in the monitoring of deer impacts. A good place to start is to contact your local elected municipal leader’s office to find out about these opportunities. Many communities may also include this information on their municipal website. I would like to be able to contribute to effective deer management in my community." }, { "question": "What kinds of actions can I take?", "answer": "There are many actions community members can take to help reduce conflict between people and deer. Residents may landscape with deer-resistant plantings, install deer-proof fencing, or take steps to reduce contraction of Lyme disease, to name a few. If you browse our selection of resources, you will find information on some of the actions that you may take. In addition, your county’s Cooperative Extension office may also provide educational resources you may find helpful, from informational pamphlets to community workshops." }, { "question": "What conditions can leaders create to make progress in addressing local deer management issues?", "answer": "Leaders can help their communities by creating processes that increase knowledge about the issue, by helping to build working relationships, partnerships and informal networks, and by helping to foster community commitment to a common purpose. See Decker et. al (2004) for further discussion of the essential roles that local leaders play in successful CBDM cases." }, { "question": "Does my community need to put together a deer management plan?", "answer": "Not every community needs a formal deer management plan, but it is important for your community to consider what might be elements of a deer management program. For example, this includes understanding the impacts that are driving your community’s deer management problem, understanding the data you need and how to collect it, knowing what your goal for management is and how much time and money you can commit and over what time horizon." }, { "question": "Where can I find more information on specific, direct actions for deer population reduction?", "answer": "For more information on direct actions for managing deer, we suggest visiting the website http://wildlifecontrol.info or reviewing our resources page for additional help. I am interested in finding an outside facilitator for my community's deer management process." }, { "question": "How do I find one?", "answer": "Formal facilitators can be found by contacting your local state wildlife management agency, which may have citizen participation specialists or other professionals who may perform this role. Your state's Cooperative Extension system may have educators who facilitate public processes, so contacting your local county's Extension office may be a good place to begin. In addition, private consultants may provide facilitation services, as well as local nonprofits or dispute resolution centers. Finally, there may be respected leaders in your own community who, while not formally trained in facilitation, may have the skills necessary to aid in facilitating public meetings or deliberations. Please also visit our resources tab for a list of organizations that may aid in helping you find a facilitator." }, { "question": "What are some good ground rules for public processes?", "answer": "Clearly identified ground rules for participant behavior and for group decision making are an important initial task for community deliberative processes. Respect and recognition without accusations, blaming, or making personal attacks, as suggested by Forester (2009), are good rules to begin with, coupled with allowing each participant the opportunity to speak without being spoken over. Some facilitators may even use tools such as “talking sticks” to allow participants the opportunity to speak in small group processes. These ground rules are often agreed upon and suggested by process participants, as well as facilitators. Appendix B of Susskind and Cruikshank (2006) lay out detailed ground rules for both the behavior of participants and for decision making, if you are looking for a more specific and comprehensive list." }, { "question": "How long is the whole CBDM process going to take?", "answer": "There is no easy answer to this question. Time will vary based on a number of factors and needs specific to your community, including the amount of time and money you are willing to contribute, the support of local elected officials, the management method selected, and public support of the effort. CBDM is often not a one-off effort, but an ongoing commitment by a community. Some communities are able to come to a decision and take actions quickly (i.e., less than a year). In other communities it can take years to agree upon and implement deer management actions. Browsing our library of cases may be helpful to you in finding communities that may be similar to your own, in order to get a sense of the time commitment that may be needed. However, keep in mind that what worked in one community, no matter how similar it seems to your own, is not guaranteed to work in yours. My community wants to carry out a resident survey prior to deciding what our process will look like." }, { "question": "How do we do that?", "answer": "Implementing a resident survey requires a large time commitment as well as financial resources to commit to developing a survey instrument. Often, developing and implementing an effective survey will require the involvement of experts in this skill. You may wish to consult your local university or a private company that specializes in survey design and implementation. For example surveys, please visit our resources tab; you will find example deer management-related surveys under the “tools” heading." }, { "question": "What do we need to do to ensure my community's CBDM process is successful?", "answer": "Browsing our library of cases may be helpful to you in finding communities that may be similar to your own, in order to get a sense of how those communities’ processes progressed. However, keep in mind that what worked in one community, no matter how similar it seems to your own, is not guaranteed to work in yours." }, { "question": "How do we choose the right deer management tool for our community?", "answer": "After the issue has been identified, and you understand what is and is not possible in your community, it is time to explore what tools or combination of tools or actions are available to you. Some tools may need to be implemented by a community, some by individuals. These tools have varying costs, effectiveness, and time horizons that a community needs to understand before they select the method or combination of methods that is right for them. This means weighing the alternatives available, and being open to continual evaluation and reassessment of your community’s use of those tools. This also means being adaptable in your approach and changing that approach as conditions change—conditions which you may be trying to affect as well as conditions which may be beyond your control. Browsing our library of cases may be helpful to you in finding communities that may be similar to your own, in order to get a sense of which actions were selected in different context. However, keep in mind that what worked in one community, no matter how similar it seems to your own, is not guaranteed to work in yours. My community needs assistance in implementing our deer management plan." }, { "question": "How can I find help?", "answer": "Implementing your deer management plan may require the involvement of private firms, non-profit organizations, or local citizens. Please see our list of experts to help you find the appropriate assistance in your area." }, { "question": "Do I need to be a deer expert to be an effective facilitator?", "answer": "No, not necessarily. It is important that facilitators be perceived as unbiased by stakeholders, and sometimes being viewed as not having a stake in deer management may be a benefit to facilitation. However, a facilitator does need to have some knowledge about the issue, especially given that part of their role is to help create knowledge among stakeholders. What is especially important is that facilitators are able to effectively help foster partnerships and information networks, create decision-making processes that are regarded as fair and credible among stakeholders, and facilitate discussion that leads to a common community purpose." }, { "question": "Do I need special training to be an effective facilitator?", "answer": "Facilitation skills may partly account for why different communities may have different outcomes for similar processes. If training is available to you, you might find it helpful. Some organizations (see our resources tab) may provide training specifically on conflict resolution and negotiation, but many accomplished facilitators have developed their skills through experience. So no, training is not a requirement, but it can be beneficial. Resources for facilitators can be found under our “resources” tab; a few good references to begin with may be these three books." }, { "question": "Where can I find more educational resources regarding deer and CBDM?", "answer": "Please see our resources tab for a variety of educational resources that may be helpful to you. You will even find some pre-made PowerPoint presentations that you may use and alter for educational purposes. You may also find it helpful to contact your county's Cooperative Extension office for additional educational resources." } ]

[ { "question": "Who uses the HAARP Observatory?", "answer": "Scientists are the primary users of the instruments at HAARP for upper atmosphere, space and radio science research. NSF is funding scientists to conduct experiments with HAARP in 2017, including the use of its large phased-array high-frequency (HF) radio transmitter. However, the HAARP Observatory is more than its giant iconic phased-array \"ionosphere heater\" that is only operated for approximately 100 hours during a typical two-week experiment campaign. The observatory also hosts several passive and active diagnostic instruments, many of which are in continuous operation. Data from several of the diagnostic instruments used to be made publicly available in real time over the web and efforts are underway to restore this service. NSF is funding Chris Fallen through NSF Award #1702328 \"RAPID: Spatiotemporal Evolution of Radio-induced Aurora at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) Observatory.\" Scientists will conduct experiments in February 2017 during the first UAF-led HAARP \"experiment campaign,\" lasting approximately one week. The first campaign is somewhat of a \"shakedown campaign\" when a fraction of the HAARP transmitter (approximately 60%) and supporting equipment will be tested following years of storage. NSF-funded experiments conducted by Dr. Chris Fallen, Assistant Research Professor in the Space Physics group at the UAF Geophysical Institute, will conduct both artificial aurora and radio propagation experiments. The artificial aurora can potentially be photographed, weather and experiment conditions permitting, from locations extending throughout much of Alaska, including its major population centers of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. HAARP transmissions can be similarly be received worldwide with shortwave radio receivers, conditions permitting. Details of Dr. Fallen's experiments, including experiment times and radio frequencies used will be published through the Operations News link at the top of this page and his personal twitter account @ctfallen." }, { "question": "How can I participate or observe HAARP experiments?", "answer": "Anybody who wants to participate and follow HAARP experiments should follow the official and unofficial announcements linked at the top of this page. There are two main ways to participate in the campaign: by listening to the radio transmissions from HAARP itself or by photographing artificial auroras created by HAARP. Amateur (Ham) radio operators can also use temporary ionosphere irregularities created by HAARP to open new propagation modes for their own transmissions. A shortwave radio and knowledge of the time and frequency of the HAARP transmissions provides opportunities to \"listen in\" since the radio wave energy often (but not always) propagates very large distances, sometimes worldwide! Shortwave radios capable of receiving frequencies in the same range that HAARP can transmit, between approximately 2.7 and 10 MHz (2700 and 10,000 kHz) allow anyone to hear HAARP transmissions provided long-distance radio propagation conditions are sufficient and the radio is tuned to one of the frequencies where HAARP is transmitting. Ham radio operators also have an opportunity to reflect (or \"bounce\") their own transmissions, typically in the HF, VHF or UHF bands, off ionosphere irregularities created above HAARP during high-power experiments. This creates propagation modes that would normally only be possible during certain space weather events such as aurora. The artificial aurora (properly called radio-enhanced airglow) occurs at an approximate altitude of 150 to 300 km and can be photographed, conditions permitting, from distances several hundreds of kilometers from HAARP, including near the main population centers of Alaska: Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. The HAARP artificial aurora is usually not sufficiently luminous to be seen with the unaided eye except under exceptional conditions, and even the best case it is as bright (though much smaller in appearance) as the Andromeda galaxy. A consumer-grade camera with a long-exposure feature is sufficient to photograph the artificial aurora, and photographing the Andromeda galaxy is a good baseline test of sufficient exposure length and light pollution conditions. The artificial aurora can either appear as a spot or amorphous blob in the sky, sometimes as a ray aligned with the geomagnetic field above HAARP, or a combination of both. Photographers near HAARP in the Copper Valley vicinity should aim their cameras near vertical to photograph the HAARP artificial aurora which is typically located approximately 200 km directly above Glennallen. Photographers outside the Copper Valley should aim their cameras toward Glennallen with an elevation angle that decreases with increasing distance from Glennallen. The approximate location of the artificial aurora can be located with the Google Earth application by downloading and opening the \".kml\" file available through the links at the top of this page. The ground-level view displayed in Google Earth will show the approximate region where the artificial aurora or airglow induced by high-power HAARP transmissions will occur so photographers can frame their images accordingly." } ]

[ { "question": "Do I have to apply for college financial aid every year?", "answer": "Financial aid is awarded on an annual basis. You’ll need to complete a new FAFSA and scholarship applications each year to determine your eligibility." }, { "question": "If I do not qualify for aid, or if I do not want loans, do I have to complete the FAFSA?", "answer": "It is usually in your best interest to complete the FAFSA even if you think you may not qualify for aid. The FAFSA is required for all federal aid (including loans), and it is also required for the Stallings Endowment Scholarship and some school-based awards. Students at the School of Divinity and School of Law are required to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is not required if you plan to pay out-of-pocket or use a private loan; however, having your FAFSA on file allows us to have your information in the event additional aid becomes available." }, { "question": "How do I apply for federal and Virginia financial aid grants?", "answer": "Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) . The information from the FAFSA will help us determine the type of federal financial aid you are eligible to receive. Virginia undergraduate students interested in applying for the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG) should submit this form to the Student Financial Aid Office. You can also apply for university endowed or school-based scholarships and grants." }, { "question": "What documents will I need to complete the FAFSA financial aid requirements?", "answer": "NOTE: You can complete the FAFSA using “estimated data.” If you choose this option, you will need to send us a copy of all tax forms when they are completed and submitted to the Internal Revenue Service." }, { "question": "What is the deadline for submitting my financial aid application?", "answer": "There is no deadline for submitting the FAFSA. You just want to make sure your FAFSA and all additional required documents are submitted prior to the payment deadline in order to avoid late-payment fees and interruption of your courses. Students who are eligible for the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant must submit their completed application by July 31 for priority processing. Applications submitted after this date will be reviewed for eligibility based on availability of funds. Please refer to your school of enrollment to determine the deadlines for school-based scholarships and awards." }, { "question": "How does the Department of Education determine my Expected Family Contribution (EFC)?", "answer": "Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is the number that’s used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid. While the EFC is considered the amount of money a family is expected to contribute toward a student’s college costs, the EFC is not the amount of money that your family must provide. Rather, you should think of the EFC as an index that colleges use to determine how much financial aid you would receive if you were to attend their school. The Student Financial Aid Office uses your EFC to determine the need for aid for the following types of federal student financial aid: Federal Pell Grant, TEACH Grant and Stafford Subsidized Loans. All data used to calculate your EFC comes from the information you provide on the FAFSA. A variety of factors affect your EFC from the FAFSA: household size, number of people in college in your household, household income levels, state of residence, etc. Once you have completed your FAFSA, it is processed by the Department of Education’s Central Processing System. Once processed, you will receive an output document containing a summary of your FAFSA as well as your results (Student Aid Report). The Department of Education has provided a document that provides additional information about the EFC Formula." }, { "question": "How long does the student financial aid awarding process take?", "answer": "Typically, our office begins processing financial aid award packages for the upcoming academic year in mid-March." }, { "question": "How do I know what additional requirements I have to submit for financial college aid?", "answer": "Once the Student Financial Aid Office has received a processed FAFSA, we will send a notification letter to you with instructions on your next step. This letter will include your Regent University Genisys/Student ID, a temporary PIN (if you are a new student), and a list of your satisfied and unsatisfied requirements. You can also look in Genisys to determine what requirements are still outstanding. Once in Genisys, click on the following menu items: Financial Aid -> Select Aid Year -> Step 2: Financial Aid Requirements." }, { "question": "Why was I selected for financial aid verification and do I have to submit my tax returns?", "answer": "The Central Processing System (CPS) randomly selects applications to undergo the verification process each year. Approximately 30 percent of all applications are picked for verification. This means that your aid award cannot be finalized until your counselor reviews your submitted verification documents. If your application is chosen for verification, you and your parents/spouse (if applicable) will need to submit complete, signed copies of your most recent Federal 1040 Tax Returns, including any Schedule Cs and all W-2 forms. Learn more about required verification documents. You will also need to submit a completed Federal Verification Worksheet (independent | dependent ). A student’s application for federal financial aid may be selected for review by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) in a process called “Verification.” Financial aid regulations say that schools have the right to ask for financial information and other information, as it applies to your application, before awarding federal aid. The verification process requires that a student’s application be reviewed based on specific pre-determined criteria set by the Department of Education. The federal verification process is a random selection process. It is usually a more in-depth review of the student’s application data, as set according to the Department of Education’s Student Aid Handbook. The verification process requires that information from the student’s application be compared with copies of the student’s, spouse’s (if married) and parents’ (if dependent) federal tax forms or financial documents. Other documentation may be required as it applies to the information on the application. Notification to students is sent via email stating that there are outstanding requirements. The student’s Genisys account will also list the document requirements and the status. Each year about 30 percent of students’ financial aid applications nationwide are chosen for verification. The main reasons for being selected for verification include that you were chosen randomly, the FAFSA you submitted was incomplete, your FAFSA contains estimated information or the data you provided on the FAFSA is inconsistent. Verification is a federal regulation. Students who are selected for verification are not being punished; rather verification prevents ineligible students from receiving aid by reporting false information and ensures that eligible students receive all of the aid for which they are qualified. To assist in the verification of the items above, the following documents are required. You should only provide tax documents if we request them." }, { "question": "What are private loans for students?", "answer": "Private loans are credit-based loans offered to students to assist in covering their educational expenses. These loans are not administered by the U.S. Department of Education. As a result, each lender can set the interest rates, loan fees and terms of his/her programs based on his/her own parameters. Undergraduate students who are not eligible for the Parent PLUS Loan can apply for a private loan. Most lenders have an online application to expedite the process. Once the student is approved, your lender will require the university to certify the student’s eligibility for the private loan. The amount a student is eligible for is based on the student’s Cost of Attendance (COA) minus other aid received for the period. Find out more information about private loans." }, { "question": "Will I have a student refund?", "answer": "You are eligible for a student refund if your term balance in Genisys reflects a credit balance. Once in Genisys, click on the following menu items: Bill and Payment Center tab > Continue > My Account. If the “Term Balance” line shows a negative amount, you have a credit balance and are due a refund." }, { "question": "How much will I owe after financial aid?", "answer": "Your total amount owed includes your tuition and any related fees. Your tuition and fees rate is based on your school of enrollment. If you are not using financial aid to cover your tuition and fees expenses, you can view your account balance in Genisys within the “Bill and Payment Center” tab. You can also view your remaining account balance in Genisys if your financial aid does not cover your total tuition and fees." }, { "question": "Who do I contact if I have questions about my Regent University financial aid?", "answer": "If you have questions that require personal attention or situations that you wish to discuss with someone in depth, please contact Financial Aid, at 757.352.4125." }, { "question": "Why is my financial aid scholarship only entered for the fall and spring semesters?", "answer": "In general, your school-based scholarships and grants are awarded for the entire year; fall/spring/summer. However, for programs not designed as year-round, aid is initially entered for only the fall/spring semesters. For students in these programs, school-based scholarships and grants are entered onto the system in late January." }, { "question": "Why has my scholarship not paid to my account?", "answer": "There are a number of reasons why your scholarship may not have posted to your account. Check Genisys for unsatisfied financial aid requirements: Financial Aid -> Select Aid Year -> Step 2: Financial Aid Requirements. You may not be enrolled in the required number of credits to receive the scholarship. Your GPA may not meet the scholarship requirements, or you may not be making Satisfactory Academic Progress. Your scholarship may not cover classes outside of your major or program." }, { "question": "How do I apply for summer financial aid loans?", "answer": "If a loan for the summer term was not included in your original aid package, you may be eligible for a summer loan. You must complete the Summer Aid Request Form in Genisys. The form is available in late February. If you have received the annual Stafford Loan maximum during the fall and spring semesters, you will only qualify for either a Parent Plus Loan (dependent students), private loan (independent students) or Graduate Plus Loan (graduate students). Each loan, in this instance, requires a credit review. Approval is not guaranteed." }, { "question": "Do I have to start repaying my loans if I take a leave of absence?", "answer": "You have a six-month grace period on your federal loans. If you have prior loans for which you had already begun repayment, there is no additional grace period. Contact your lender(s) to determine if you qualify for a deferment or forbearance." }, { "question": "What happens to my bookstore credit if I do not use it?", "answer": "You will receive your refund according to the regular schedule. The Bookstore Credit program simply allows students to purchase their books early through the bookstore without having to pay out of pocket. Student refunds are in no way affected if you choose not to use the credit. We hope you found the financial aid help provided above useful.

[ { "question": "What is going to happen now?", "answer": "If you or any of your children are diagnosed with scoliosis it is important that you see a scoliosis specialist. There are around 30 scoliosis centres of excellence across the UK and you can find your nearest specialist by calling or emailing SAUK. You will need to take the names of the specialists to your GP, who will arrange a referral. You will then receive a letter in the post with your appointment date and time. At your first consultation you will be examined by the specialist, X-rays will be taken, and you will be told the Cobb angle. The Cobb angle is measured in degrees and will tell you how big the curve is. The specialist will then talk to you about your scoliosis and possible treatments. For smaller curves the specialist will probably want to start by checking you regularly to see if the curve is getting bigger. For larger curves treatment will probably be recommended. It is important to remember that every scoliosis is different and there is no standard treatment, so getting the advice of a specialist is very important. In general, AIS should not stop patients from taking part in physical activities. Patients who have mild scoliosis and are being monitored by a specialist can usually carry on as normal." }, { "question": "Could the scoliosis have been prevented?", "answer": "Scoliosis can only be prevented when it is due to rickets or poliomyelitis, which can both be treated. Happily both these diseases are now very rare. Scoliosis is not caused by bad posture, carrying a heavy backpack, or anything the child or parents did or did not do." }, { "question": "Should I have noticed my child’s curve sooner?", "answer": "It is very common for a parent not to notice a curvature straightaway. Scoliosis most often appears during adolescence, when the body is developing and changing. Young people are more likely to undress privately and it’s often on holiday or when they are wearing something tight that the curvature is noticed. Scoliosis can progress very quickly, so a curve can seem to appear suddenly that might not have been easy to spot just a few months earlier." }, { "question": "Will scoliosis mean that my child can’t take part in sport?", "answer": "Having scoliosis does not stop most young people doing what they always do. If they are not in pain and are under specialist care they can go on as they always have. Exercising and taking part in sports is a good idea and helps to keep you healthy and flexible. However, it is a good idea to check this with the specialist. It is particularly important to check in the case of sports like rugby or horse riding. Wearing a brace shouldn’t stop a child from being active. If surgery is needed, patients should slowly ease back into gentle exercise. Many patients will be back to normal activity levels by around 6 months. For high impact exercise and contact sports it will take longer. Please do note that every case is different, so ensure that you consult your scoliosis specialist. I have seen a scoliosis specialist and I am still unclear as to what course of treatment to have. It is normal to feel confused about what course of treatment to choose for you or your child. There is a lot of information to take in and some of the questions about scoliosis have no clear answer. It is absolutely fine to ask your specialist further questions, and perhaps another appointment to go through everything again. It is usually helpful to have list of questions for the specialist so that you get all the information you want. If need be you could ask for a second opinion. If you need names of other centres or specialists then you can get this information from us by calling or emailing the SAUK Helpline. You may also find that it helps to talk through the specialist’s advice with someone. The friendly SAUK team are always happy to offer advice, support, and a listening ear. You can ask us as many questions as you like and we will try to help. It sometimes helps to speak to people who have been in a similar position. If you would like to speak to people affected by scoliosis, the SAUK membership scheme can help you to do so." }, { "question": "Will I have any problems with pregnancy?", "answer": "Many of our members have happy, healthy families. It is always sensible to discuss the management of labour in advance with the medical staff who will take care of you during the birth. Your scoliosis may affect the position you take during labour and delivery. Sometimes if you have had a spinal fusion operation you will not be able to have an epidural. Although idiopathic scoliosis sometimes runs in families, the risk of the baby developing scoliosis is low." }, { "question": "My teenager is struggling emotionally with scoliosis what can I do?", "answer": "Everyone reacts differently to being diagnosed with and living with scoliosis but it can be a lonely and worrying time for a teenager. Young people often dislike anything that makes them different from their friends and may worry about what scoliosis will mean for their future. It is important for teenagers to be involved in discussions about their health and given the chance to ask questions of the specialist if they wish to do so. It is a good idea to get them to write down any questions or concerns before the appointment. Try to discourage them from surfing the internet for information about scoliosis and let them know that what they read online will often not be accurate. It is helpful to provide them with information from trusted sources as learning more about scoliosis can help to reassure them. Reading about or speaking with other teenagers who also have scoliosis can help them to feel less alone. There is a hub for teenagers on our website where teenagers talk about their experiences and share tips and advice. Also our membership scheme allows us to put families in touch with each other who have been through similar experiences so teenagers can contact each other or meet up. There are youth representatives throughout the UK who are available for younger members to contact for advice or just to talk. If your teenager has been put on the waiting list for surgery this can be a very difficult and often upsetting time for the whole family. Being prepared can really help to reduce anxiety and distress so we have put together some guidelines to help with preparing your child for surgery." }, { "question": "How can I encourage my teenager to wear their brace?", "answer": "Encouraging a young person to wear a brace can be really hard. There will be times when it feels hot and uncomfortable. Brace-wearers often feel self-conscious and different from their school friends. At SAUK we believe that young people find it helpful to speak to others who have been through a similar experience. If you are a member we can give you contact details of other young people with scoliosis in your area. If your child feels comfortable you could ask your child’s school to have a talk or assembly about scoliosis will raise awareness of the condition, and increase understanding at school. We can provide leaflets to the school and talk to them about how to best support a child with scoliosis." }, { "question": "How long does it take to recover from scoliosis (fusion) surgery?", "answer": "Every person is very different when it comes to recovery. For young people, a usual hospital stay is about a week after the operation, but this time can vary depending on how extensive the operation is. Once at home, most patients would be able to do basic things for themselves and be able to go up and downstairs but might need some help. They can slowly build up their activity levels as they recover. The general guideline for going back to school is around 6 weeks but some people feel well enough to return sooner. Many patients will be back to doing their normal activities by around 6 months after the operation. For some activities such as football and other contact sports it will be longer ̶ usually around 9 months to a year after the operation." }, { "question": "I am not happy with how my child has been treated by the specialist or at the hospital what should I do?", "answer": "It is your right to ask for a second opinion from another specialist at the same or a different hospital. Also every hospital has a patient advice and liaison service (PALS). If you are unhappy with the way that you have been treated or have any other worry or concern about your care, you can seek advice from the PALS service linked to your hospital, which will be happy to help." } ]

[ { "question": "Why am I being asked to contribute to the PAC?", "answer": "Over the last couple of years, attacks on labor unions have accelerated into an all-out assault on workers across the country. In many states, American workers have been blamed for the financial crises and have been the chief target of many state budget cuts despite corporations reporting record profits. The momentum began with Wisconsin, but is now continuing in New Hampshire, Florida, Maine, and Ohio. In Washington, Congress is making major decisions that affect IATSE workers nationwide, concerning issues such as digital theft, the funding of Medicare, and collective bargaining. Giving to the PAC allows us to fight for legislation that benefits IATSE (digital theft) and against legislation that hurts working men and women (funding of Medicare, and collective bargaining)." }, { "question": "I already pay dues, why should I contribute to the PAC?", "answer": "Federal law prohibits the use of union dues from being used for political purposes, so in order to participate in the political process and have a greater voice on issues impacting you as a member of the IATSE, you have to voluntarily give to the IATSE-PAC." }, { "question": "What do I get for contributing to the IATSE-PAC?", "answer": "If you have filled out a Payroll Authorization PAC form, give it to your employer's payroll company (if your employer handles its own payroll, then give to your employer's payroll department). Please send a copy to your local union so you can receive appropriate recognition for your donation." }, { "question": "What happens to my PAC card after I submit it?", "answer": "Because your PAC card contains sensitive information, the IATSE-PAC will record the data in a secure manner. Our PAC is required by law to report to the Federal Elections Commission when an individual's contribution exceeds $200 in a year, and our PAC reports only what is legally required. The law forbids anyone from using the information on file with the FEC to solicit any business or money from you.

We are far more interested in working with agencies and their contractors/recipients to identify opportunities for compensatory cargo to be carried on U.S.-flag vessels. This corrective action is far more cost-effective for the contractor/recipient and ultimately serves the actual purposes of cargo preference – getting cargo aboard U.S.-flag vessels. (7) any other relevant considerations. These factors would all be taken into consideration when setting any actual penalty for a knowing and willful cargo preference violation." }, { "question": "2) Do shippers/ suppliers have to ship on a US flagged vessel and under a US flag carrier bill of lading or can they also ship on a foreign flagged vessel under a US flag bill of lading?", "answer": "Under the Cargo Preference laws and regulations, a shipper/supplier cannot ship the US flag portion of preference cargo on a foreign-flagged vessel, regardless of whether the bill of lading is issued by a foreign-flag carrier or a U.S.-flag ocean carrier. A shipper/supplier must ship the US flag portion of preference cargo via a U.S.-flag vessel, and receive the US flag carrier’s master ocean bill of lading. Copies of ocean carrier master bills of lading for both US flag and foreign flag shipments should be submitted to MARAD." }, { "question": "1) When should we submit the Form F and bills of lading?", "answer": "Federal Regulations require submission of bill of lading copies within 20 working days of the date of loading for shipments originating in the United States, or within 30 working days for shipments originating outside the United States. For one-time Ex-Im Bank shipments, the Form F should be submitted within these parameters. For multiple shipments, The Form F should be submitted at the beginning of each calendar month and include all of the bills of lading received for the month just ending. Required to submit together. For more information on the Export-Import Bank process click here. 2) Please confirm that PR 17s application is restricted to EXIM Bank Cargoes which meet the current threshold of “7 years in length and USD20.0M loan amount”. PR-17 as codified under 46 USC 55304 covers exports financed by the U.S. Government including Ex-Im Bank cargo. Ex-Im Bank is presently the only program operating under 46 USC 55304 but it is not exclusively limited to the Ex-Im Bank program. 46 USC 55304 technically applies to all Ex-Im Bank cargo moves however for the Loan Guarantee program a special compromise was put in place that provided for the “threshold” concept, but this is only for the Loan Guarantee program. Direct Loans require the application of the U.S.-flag requirement from the first dollar on up. Under the PR-17 agreement the U.S.-flag requirement is applied at 100% where it is applicable. 3) PR 17 had the impact of waiving the 3 year waiting period for US Flag, Foreign built vessel participation criteria and had the impact of permitting a Project Manager(NVOCC) Bill of Lading to be considered the Over Carriage Bill of Lading vs the US Flag Carrier Bill of Lading, while still maintaining the requirement to produce the US Flag Carrier Bill of Lading.

The Cargo Preference Act of 1904 (04 Act) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS) defines DOD Cargo as “supplies”. “Supplies” means all property, except land and interests in land, that is clearly identifiable for eventual use by or owned by the DoD at the time of transportation by sea. “Supplies” includes (but is not limited to) public works; buildings and facilities; ships; floating equipment and vessels of every character, type, and description, with parts, subassemblies, accessories, and equipment; machine tools; material; equipment; stores of all kinds; end items; construction materials; and components of the foregoing. (DFARS 252.247-7023 Transportation of Supplies by Sea)." }, { "question": "4) What percentage of US Military (DOD) cargo must be shipped on US Flag vessels?", "answer": "Cargo Preference Act of 1904 cargo (military supplies) . . . 100%. This has also been extended to military HHGs and POVs, if U.S.-flag ships are available. The regulations implementing the 100% U.S.-flag requirements of the Cargo Preference Act of 1904 (10 U.S.C. 2631) can be found at DEFENSE FEDERAL ACQUISITION REGULATIONS SUPPLEMENT (DFARS) 247.5 (instructions for Contracting Officers) and at DFARS 252.247-7023 (instructions for contractors), which is made clause in every DOD contract in which transportation of supplies by sea may occur." }, { "question": "5) Can the U.S.-flag vessel requirement be waived?", "answer": "Yes, however only the DOD contracting officer can waive the requirement for U.S.-flag vessels. The conditions under which a waiver can be granted are described in DFARS 252.247-7023. If you have questions on the waiver process, please contact the Maritime Administration at 202-366-4610, press 4 for the Department of Defense team." }, { "question": "6) Does it include FMF (for Foreign Military Financed by U.S) Cargo?", "answer": "No. FMF cargo and Excess Defense Articles (EDA) provide to a foreign country comes under the 1954 ACT. Regs covering FMF as administered by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency are found under the SAMM. There is now FMF cargo moving outside of the DSCA program and this is generally referred to as “pseudo-FMF”. 1) It is reported that the 1954 ACT identifies US Flag Shipping requirements for other US Government owned or otherwise controlled Cargo shipments." }, { "question": "Can you identify those agencies and the requirements?", "answer": "46 CFR 381.2 details the application of the Cargo Preference Act of 1954 and offers a list of potential agencies that are subject to the ACT. The list is not complete and is, for example, missing DHS as a new agency. And it includes the U.S. Post Office which is no longer subject to the ACT. But otherwise the list is representative. As a general rule, the 1954 ACT applies to all U.S. Government entities. The 1954 ACT in implemented through FAR and the cargo preference regulations. DOD is first subject to the Cargo Preference ACT of 1904 and the DEFENSE FEDERAL ACQUISITION REGULATIONS SUPPLEMENT (DFARS). Ex-Im Bank – EXIM operates under Public Resolution 17 (PR-17) that calls for 100% of a portion of the Banks traffic whereas the ’54 Act calls for 50% of all traffic." }, { "question": "2) Based upon US Flag, US Built and US Flag, Foreign Built concepts are the eligibility standards the same?", "answer": "46 USC 55305 specifies that vessels built or rebuilt outside of the U.S. , or vessels documented under the laws of a foreign country are not qualified vessels. U.S.-flag /U.S. build is eligible. Foreign flag/foreign build is not eligible. Foreign flag/foreign build reflagging under U.S. will be under the 3 year wait. Foreign flag/U.S. build reflagging under U.S. will also be under the 3 year wait." }, { "question": "4) Some agencies indicate that unless there is specific legislation to modify the eligibility, that US Flag, Foreign Built must always going thru a 3 year wait to be eligible to lift US Flag Preference cargo with three exceptions-MSA/MSP, specific legislative exceptions on a once off basis-ie the constructed Liberty Bulk Vessels whose eligibility rights were purchased from ISH, or PR17?", "answer": "Vessels under MSP are not bound by the 3 year rule. Vessel seized by the U.S. Government and then purchased for commercial service are also not bound by the 3 year rule." }, { "question": "5) What is the process to accomplish a General Waiver vs a Specific Voyage Waiver?", "answer": "Under the PR-17 Program a General waiver can be requested by any of the specific credit stakeholders but must be under the acknowledged routing control of a U.S. located party. For General waivers we require that the recipient nation has not discriminated against any U.S.-flag carrier operation. General waivers are Ex-Im Bank credit specific and run the length of the credit. General waivers require 50% U.S.-flag and 50% recipient nation flag but U.S.-flag portion is to move first. All other PR–17 waivers are incident specific. We do not use the term “voyage waiver” since the incident specific waivers can and do sometimes span several voyages." }, { "question": "(C Boggs clarifies “is there a difference in the flag requirement of a grant vs. a loan vs a guarantee”?", "answer": "Under an Ex-Im Bank direct loan U.S.-flag participation is 100% with no eligibility threshold. Under an Ex-Im Bank loan guarantee U.S.-flag participation is at 100% but only for loans that are in excess of $20 million or 7 years in length. There are no Grant programs under the Ex-Im Bank structure." }, { "question": "7) Would there be any negative impacts on the eligibility of US Flag vessel % of participation in the EXIM Program if PR 17 were to be permitted to expire?", "answer": "A number of studies have been done as to which program would yield better results but the results of the studies are inconclusive as accurate data on the full range of Ex-Im Bank potential is not available." }, { "question": "8) Under what authority is a compensatory waiver permitted?", "answer": "9) The MSA established a criteria and subsidy for eligibility and selection by the US Military to utilize(have access to privately owned) US Flag vessel asset and infrastructure. It established US citizenry and non-US Citizenry ownership processes." }, { "question": "Leaving aside the waiving of the 3 year wait for Foreign Built, US Flag Vessels eligibility were there other significant implications brought about by MSA?", "answer": "(3) capped the single voyage lift of PL480 Cargo at a level not to exceed 7500mt for MSP vessels." }, { "question": "11) Does the “BY Country, By Program, By Vessel Type” criteria apply only to PL480 cargo shipments?", "answer": "54 Act / non food aid – we monitor by Program by Country. We assume all cargo moving essentially by “dry cargo Liner” and o not monitor by vessel type. This program is essentially an administrative waiver of the U.S.-build requirement of the Jones Act." }, { "question": "2) Why do I need the waiver?", "answer": "This waiver is required to obtain a coastwise endorsement from the U.S. Coast Guard. This endorsement is needed for foreign vessels or vessels of unknown build to operate in the U.S. as commercial passenger vessels." }, { "question": "3) How do I apply for the waiver?", "answer": "The intended use must be to carry passengers only. Activities such as carriage of cargo, commercial fishing, towing, dredging, and salvage do not qualify for this program. Sport fishing is permitted as long as any fish caught are not sold commercially. You will need to submit a new application to include Puerto Rico or any other state not listed on the original waiver letter. I am thinking of purchasing a boat and the current owner tells me they have a small vessel waiver." }, { "question": "Is there a cost and how long does the process take?", "answer": "Once the application is completed and the application fee is paid, MARAD will process and review the application. A notice will be published in the Federal Register for a period of 30 days to allow public comment. At the end of that period and assuming no comments are received, the waiver letter will be prepared. After review and signature, the effective date of the waiver is the 6th working day after date of signature. The original letter will be mailed to the applicant and a signed pdf copy will be e-mailed to the applicant. The applicant’s next step would be to contact the U.S. Coast Guard National Vessel Documentation Center to obtain a coastwise endorsement." } ]
[ { "question": "You are here: Home › Further Reading › JFK Assassination FAQs › What Do People Think About the JFK Assassination?", "answer": "In opinion polls since the late 1960s, the general public has consistently rejected the lone-nut hypothesis. Public opinion about the JFK assassination does not agree with that of the news media. The lone–nut hypothesis, strongly promoted by the media, is rejected by the general population not because people get their information on the subject from conspiracy–oriented books, but because they adopt the same critical attitude to the assassination as they do to other, similar topics. The main polling organisations take surveys of popular opinion about the assassination from time to time. In most cases, the survey questions have been restricted to a simple choice: lone nut versus conspiracy." }, { "question": "1993, 2001: Do you think that one man was responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy, or do you think that others were involved in a conspiracy?", "answer": "Hundreds of books have been published on the JFK assassination. Most of them are given little publicity, and presumably do not sell in large quantities. Those with the largest publicity budgets tend to be uncritical or sensationalist, and pose little threat to the lone–nut hypothesis. Gerald Posner’s Case Closed , for example, received coverage in newspapers and magazines, and on television and radio, that was quite out of proportion to the credibility of its analysis. The conspiratorial book most heavily promoted in the media was probably David Lifton’s Best Evidence , which proposed that President Kennedy’s body was surgically altered to conceal evidence of shots from the front. To the majority of the general public, unfamiliar with the details of the JFK assassination, such a proposition must seem too far–fetched to be taken seriously. Best Evidence was a safe book to promote. As Roger Feinman pointed out, Lifton “is the perfect public spokesman for the assassination research community, only if we look at things from the perspective of both the government and the established news media”. Although Lifton performed some useful research, his theory is far from conclusive and is not a central part of the argument against the lone–nut hypothesis. The books that make the most convincing case for conspiracy, such as Gerald McKnight’s Breach of Trust and Sylvia Meagher’s Accessories After the Fact , have received hardly any publicity in the mainstream media, and are surely unknown to almost everyone who takes part in opinion polls on the subject. The general public gets its information about the JFK assassination largely from the established media, which, in the US at least, overwhelmingly depicts the assassination as the act of a lone nut named Lee Harvey Oswald. On the rare occasions when the possibility of a conspiracy is acknowledged, Oswald is assumed to have been an active participant in the plot. From the point of view of most media commentators, such conclusions are perfectly rational. Two official inquiries concluded that Oswald was a gunman. According to the first, he acted alone; according to the second, he almost certainly acted alone, but may perhaps have had associates. The inquiries were official, so their conclusions must by definition have been justified. Therefore Oswald was a gunman who almost certainly acted alone but may perhaps have had associates. In the first few days after the assassination, a majority took seriously the idea of a conspiracy, as information inconsistent with the lone–nut explanation was widely broadcast: evidence of shots from more than one direction, Oswald’s apparent contacts with representatives of the Soviet and Cuban regimes, and Jack Ruby’s connections to organised crime. Towards the end of 1964, the balance swung towards the lone–nut explanation as the media heavily promoted the Warren Report ’s conclusions. The public had adopted a more critical attitude by 1967, following the publication of the first wave of properly researched critiques of the Warren Report , such as Sylvia Meagher’s Accessories After the Fact: the Warren Commission, the Authorities, and the Report . In the mid–1970s, public belief in conspiracy intensified following two events: the broadcast on national television of a copy of the Zapruder film, which contained prima facie evidence of a shot from the front; and the Schweiker–Hart Report’s revelations of assassination attempts by US intelligence agencies on official enemies such as Fidel Castro. The proportion of those questioned who believed that the JFK assassination was the result of a conspiracy rose to about three out of four in late 1991, when Oliver Stone’s film, JFK , got into the news. The proportion seems to have remained at or above 75 per cent in the two decades and more since JFK was released. Whatever their views on the JFK assassination, only a small minority of those questioned can have had anything more than a superficial knowledge of the subject. Few will have heard of Lee Harvey Oswald’s impersonation in Mexico City, which does not form part of the standard media narrative despite being a central event in the assassination. Even among specialists, hardly anyone is familiar with the neutron activation analysis of Oswald’s paraffin casts, which suggests very strongly that he had not fired a rifle at all on the day of the assassination. It is not only the general public that lacks specialist knowledge. Pundits in the media, who for institutional reasons overwhelmingly endorse the lone–nut hypothesis, give every impression of being just as poorly informed as the general public. and that the Warren Commission did not perform an honest investigation into the assassination. Even though the majority of the information that reaches the general population is supportive of the lone–nut hypothesis, enough contradictory information gets through to allow the official interpretation to be rationally questioned." }, { "question": "Are JFK Assassination Beliefs Rational?", "answer": "The surveys quoted above were of US residents only, and may or may not be consistent with opinion elsewhere. There is one type of belief in which north America differs notably from most industrialised countries: the US and Canada contain a disproportionately super–sized number of believers in fundamentalist religion. The figure usually given for belief in one or another form of creationism has consistently been not far from 50%, according to Gallup: 44 per cent in 1982, and 46 per cent in 2012. For the results of a detailed survey from 1988 of religious belief in the US, see George Gallup, Jr, and Jim Castelli, The People’s Religion: American Faith in the 90s , Macmillan, 1989. Perhaps the ‘dumb Yank’ stereotype applies also to the JFK assassination, and the large pool of ignorant and credulous folk who cannot find Africa on a map, or who believe in young–earth creationism, includes those who believe that a conspiracy assassinated President Kennedy. Churches and religious radio stations are easily accessible to the reactionary and poorly educated sectors of the population which form the main audience for fundamentalist religion. There is no such network for those who question the official doctrine on the JFK assassination, a group which surely relies extensively on the mass media for its information on the subject. and they seize on the few items of critical information that the mainstream media does provide. Over a substantial period of time, belief in a Kennedy assassination conspiracy has been related to a political world view which sees the government as failing to provide its citizens with the help they feel they need to cope with the problems of modern life. This failure is not seen as being due to the inability of the president — the symbol of our government — to do a great deal to solve them. Rather he, and the government, could solve them, but choose not to, preferring to put the needs of the upper classes above those of working and middle class Americans. Many opinion polls, mostly unreported outside the specialist literature, show a large majority in favour of such subversive notions as a more equitable distribution of wealth and power. According to one survey of the literature, 82 per cent of the US population believes that the “government is run for the benefit of the few and the special interests, not the people” (Everett Carll Ladd, ‘The 1994 Congressional Elections: The Postindustrial Realignment Continues,’ Political Science Quarterly , Spring 1995, p.13). The best–known case is probably the opinion poll taken by the Boston Globe in 1987, on the 200th anniversary of the US constitution, in which respondents were given a list of sayings and were asked to identify those that were so obviously reasonable that they had to be part of the constitution. 45 per cent of the respondents approved of the notion ‘from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’ (see Laurence H. Tribe, ‘To Praise the Constitution or to Bury It?’, Boston Globe Magazine Special Supplement , 13 September 1987, pp.8f; the respondents were not told that the quotation was from Karl Marx). The public has consistently adopted a critical attitude to the Vietnam War, in notable contradiction to the media, which has published even less dissent on this topic than on the JFK assassination. Even though opposition to the war has decreased along with its relevance to everyday lives, the population has always rejected the media’s strongest criticism, the tame notion that the Vietnam War was a worthy cause that was improperly carried out: “respondents were asked how they felt about the statement that the Vietnam War ‘was more than a mistake; it was fundmentally wrong and immoral.’ In 1986, 66% of the public concurred, compared with 72% in 1978 and 1982. A total of 27% disagreed ‘somewhat’ or ‘strongly’ with the statement, compared with 21% in 1982 and 19% in 1978” (John E. Reilly, ed., American Public Opinion and US Foreign Policy 1987 , Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, 1987, p.33). The widespread belief that the JFK assassination was the result of a conspiracy is just one aspect of a widespread recognition that national institutions do not represent the interests of the general population." } ]

The financial transition from a working life to retirement is a difficult one. Decisions need to be made with the confidence of a strong financial background, so it has been invaluable to have the expert knowledge of Dominic and his team to help us through in these testing times. Dominic is a very good and patient listener, always insisting on fully understanding our situation and future needs. He answers questions I haven’t even thought to ask and his advice is down to earth and available at a level we are comfortable with. We are very grateful for and reassured by his help. I can and do thoroughly recommend the service provided Dominic and his team at Solomon’s. Andy & Heather Keys-Toyer. Dominic has been my IFA for over 14 years, so we might have grown wise together! However as my medical career has advanced my knowledge of financial products has waned, so I have increasingly depended on Dominic’s professionalism to keep my investments on-track. I simply do not have sufficient time or commitment to improve my financial acumen thus it is appropriate to trust Dominic to filter all the available information and submit it to me in easy to understand bullet points." }, { "question": "What are Fee-based financial planners?", "answer": "We have gradually grown since 1999, but always held to the principles of transparency, integrity and accountability in dealing with both clients and those within our industry. Our approach has always been to treat our clients fairly and we are delighted that the industry regulators (Financial Services Authority) have made this the platform for regulation. So we regard ourselves as pioneers. Dominic Thomas is the founder and Principal of Solomon’s. He has now been advising clients for over 20 years. We are a dynamic small firm that has always operated on a fee system. The new rules set by the the Financial Services Authority require all advisers to charge proper fees from 2013, meaning that we were nearly 14 years ahead of our time, with a wealth of experience that other firms simply don’t have. From the very beginning, we removed commission from protection products and created a ‘level playing field’ for investments, charging the same fixed fee across all new investments. It is easy to forget how radical this idea was at the time and how much money our clients have saved as a consequence. We are seeking long-term client relationships, built upon mutual trust, enabling us to create and provide a valuable service. We provide a bespoke service, working in partnership to enable you to have the best chance of achieving your goals. Together we will create your unique Financial Plan which will act as a working document reflecting the essence of what is truly important to you. This will effectively act as our mutual guide upon which all future financial decisions are based, so our attention to your detail is vital." }, { "question": "How do I contact Solomon’s?", "answer": "In order to meet with Dominic, simply call the office (we’ll even pay for the call) and speak to our team to arrange a time. You won’t need to bring anything with you. If you are reading this in ‘out of office’ hours, you may prefer to email us with a good time and date to call you back. We will only require your name, number and a suitable date or time. “The financial transition from a working life to retirement is a difficult one.

[ { "question": "Who will be painting my home?", "answer": "We recognize that most people experience some anxiety looking for and hiring a contractor to work in their home. Our company policy is to conduct pre-employment screening and to obtain background checks and complete drug testing on all of our employees. Most important to our customers: we ONLYuse employees for painting projects. This is in sharp contrast to many of our competitors that use day laborers or sub contractors. The reason is simply to make more money at the customer’s expense. We provide a 7-year warranty on all of our projects. This is as much as 7 times longer as most of our competitors. We have been in business in Fort Worth since 1985 so you can feel confident that we will be around to honor our warranty." }, { "question": "How do I know that your insurance is current and covers all of your crew?", "answer": "Our insurance agent will send you our Certificate of Insurance directly so you will know we are covered. It is not a good idea to accept the certificate directly from the contractor because this isn’t proof that the coverage is current. One more thing – some painting contractors in Fort Worth claim to have “Workers Compensation” insurance. Workers Compensation Insurance does NOT cover sub contractors or day laborers. If a sub contractor or day laborer gets hurt on the job, you will be responsible if the contractor doesn’t have the proper insurance." }, { "question": "Is it really necessary to ask for customer and business references?", "answer": "Yes and you should call the business references and at least 3 of the customers references. We provide bank and supplier references so that you can be comfortable that we are a legitimate business." }, { "question": "Is a membership in a professional association that important?", "answer": "We are proud members of the PDCA (Painting & Decorating Contractor’s of America) and we abide by their Codeof Ethics.

I have operated Supreme Painting continuously since 1985 and have never filed for bankruptcy. This is a good question to ask because some less than desirable folks have folded their painting business and burned suppliers and customers. Unfortunately, because there aren’t any licensing laws in Texas, these same folks then start up another painting business. Avoiding these folks is a smart move. Ask everyone to provide the names of each company, partnership, Limited Liability Company or other business that they have been an owner in and then check them out on Google. It is simply a smart way to hire. Yes, we accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover for all services. You will simply use your credit card to pay according to our agreement. Some companies may charge you an additional fee or % in order to use a credit card. That seems unethical to us and we don’t require it. Simply call us at (817) 457-9353 to set up our visit. If we happen to miss the call – we will call you back in 2 hours. Really! After we meet with you, we will either provide our agreement immediately or within 24 hours – in rare cases, 48 hours. I am proud to say that our clients feel comfortable providing us with their key or security code. We do like to speak to you each day to give you an update.

There is no limit to the amount of Authority you can gain." }, { "question": "Q: When do players discard cards as the result of discard effects (like on Imperial Fighter)?", "answer": "A: In the digital game, players discard cards at the beginning of their turns, though in the physical game players should discard as soon as the ability is triggered." }, { "question": "Q: Do players get to choose which cards to discard, or is it random?", "answer": "A: If an ability forces a player to discard a card, they choose which card to discard." }, { "question": "Q: When do my cards’ ally abilities become active?", "answer": "A: You may use the ally ability of a card so long as you have another card of the same faction in play. The order in which you play your cards does not matter for ally abilities (if you play two cards with ally abilities, both will become active, regardless of which entered play first)." }, { "question": "Q: Does damage dealt to a base carry over to players if more damage is dealt than the base’s defense?", "answer": "A: In Star Realms, cards which grant combat add that combat to an imaginary combat stack, which you can distribute as you please. So, if your cards have given you a total of ten combat, you could use six combat to destroy a Mech World and use the remaining four combat to attack your opponent." }, { "question": "Q: If I use a card like Trade Bot to scrap a card from my hand or discard pile, will I get the scrap ability of the card that I scrapped?", "answer": "A: No. Scrapping a card from your hand or discard pile does not trigger scrap abilities." }, { "question": "Q: Before I use the scrap ability of a card, can I use its other abilities (primary, ally) as well?", "answer": "A: Yes! Put the card into play, use its abilities, then trigger the scrap ability last." }, { "question": "Q: If a card has two icons as one of its abilities (like Cutter), do I have to choose which one I want?", "answer": "A: No, on a card like Cutter, you get both (2 Trade and 4 Authority). The only time you have to choose is if there is an “or” clause separating the two icons (like on Patrol Mech)." }, { "question": "Do I get to use it every turn the Hero is in play?", "answer": "A: When a Hero from the United expansion is acquired, you do what is listed as their primary ability (the top-most text box). You only use the primary ability at that moment, so you do not get to use it every turn." }, { "question": "Q: How do I play with more than 2 players?", "answer": "A: Each copy of the Star Realms base game supports up to 2 players. If you want to play with 3-4 players, you’ll need two copies. For 5-6, you’ll need three copies. Shuffle the trade deck cards together to maintain the game’s balance." }, { "question": "What’s wrong?", "answer": "A: To access the full features of the digital game, you must navigate to your user profile (within the “Play Online” section), then click “Restore Purchases.” That should unlock all content on your device. Q: I purchased an expansion on Steam, but it’s not unlocking on my other devices." }, { "question": "What should I do?", "answer": "A: Please open Star Realms on your Steam device, go to Play Online, and go to the user profile in the bottom left.

Q: My Wins are not registering!" }, { "question": "What do I do?", "answer": "A: Most likely, you are playing Challenge games, where you directly challenged someone, someone challenged you and accepted, or you are playing a “rematch”. In those games, the result doesn’t count towards your wins, nor towards your losses. This was implemented to prevent abuse with dummy accounts." }, { "question": "Q: When do the lifetime/monthly/weekly rankings get calculated?", "answer": "1) If it’s a Monday, you will get your lifetime and weekly avatars. 2) If it’s the 1st of the month, you will get your monthly avatars." }, { "question": "Q: If I am playing against a challenge card and flip over a factionless card (like Merc Cruiser), what do I do?", "answer": "A: The player whom will be directly affected by the card chooses its faction. If multiple players would be affected, they choose among them which faction to declare for the factionless card. A: As this would greatly slow down the pace of the game, note taking is not allowed in official Star Realms events. Fleet HQ – Only ships played while Fleet HQ is in play get the 1 Combat bonus. Mech World – Mech World may trigger the Ally ability for any faction, including all of the Ally abilities on Merc Garrison. However, Mech World doesn’t count as any other faction, so cards like Blob World won’t count it. Stealth Needle/Blob World – If you copy a Blob card with Stealth Needle, it won’t count as a Blob card played for Blob World. This is because Stealth Needle copies a card after it enters play. Merc Cruiser/Blob World – If you choose Blob for the faction, this will count towards Blob World, since you are naming a faction as you play the card. Megahauler/Blob Carrier + Emperor’s Dreadnaught/Colony Seed Ship – If you acquire Emperor’s Dreadnaught or Colony Seed Ship with Megahauler or Blob Carrier, it will end up on top of your deck regardless of whether you played a card of the same faction this turn. You cannot resolve half of Megahauler/Blob Carrier’s ability, so if you decide to acquire a card for free, it is acquired to the top of the deck. There is no chance for the “acquire to hand” ability to happen before it’s on top of your deck. Patience Rewarded – The player whose turn it is scraps and sets aside a card first (so the second player can pick the card that replaces it in the trade row). Stealth Tower – This will become a copy of another base after it enters play, so it won’t count as a card played of the copied faction. Ally abilities will still trigger as normal. Rapid Construction – ERRATA. This ability should read: “The first card a player acquires each turn is placed on top of their deck instead of their discard pile.” This means that a card only goes on top of the deck if it would normally go to the discard pile. Heroes enter play as they normally do. Cargo Boat – ERRATA: The second row ability is a Trade Federation ally ability and should have a blue icon to the left of the gain-2-authority icon." } ]
