Wants to improve her 6th sense

Senses

March 28, 2015

Question

Hello my name is Jennifer and ik I have a 6th sense in fact I might have a few but I want to embrace them I wanna hunger better at them what can I do? I can feel the future and now I feel it more than ever about every day Ik when my mom is on her way when I'm late I guess time cards right and I just feel bad and good things that come true so is there a way to get better at it? Also I can read mins once in a while Ik what my sister will say next also my friends and some strangers once in a while I also know when someone is with me and I think I might be able to feel spirits I feel ppl when they stare nd IDK if the last two where sences but I mean I think they can be Plzzz reply I want to be able to control my senses to use them for good

Jennifer - USA (25870)

Answer

Many people seem to be able to foresee future events, but some seem to have the sense much stronger than others.

The interesting thing about the 6th sense is that the harder you try to use it and see future events, the less it works. It usually occurs when you are not trying.

Be aware of how you feel and what you are thinking of when you do have these times of feeling future events. In this way, you can possibly improve your abilities and know when it will happen.

But still, remember that if you are trying to see the future, the sense usually turns off. Thus, it is tricky to use.

The best thing is to enjoy your special senses.

Is Ebola a pandemic disease?

Health

March 28, 2015

Question

HI SCHOOL OF CHAMPIONS MY NAME IS PRAYGOD AYUBU. I HAVE A QUESTION IS EBOLA PANDEMIC DISEASE.

PRAYGOD - Tanzania (25871)

Answer

A pandemic disease is an infectious disease that has spread through human populations across a large region, such as across multiple continents or even worldwide.

Ebola certainly has the potential of being a pandemic disease, but it seems to be getting under control. It certainly has not killed as many people as such pandemic diseases as smallpox.

Was U2 the plane or the band?

History

March 27, 2015

Question

in the U2 thing, I do believe he was speaking of the band U2, not the U2 spy planes. However, I'm a younger reader of your site, so I may be wrong.

- USA (25869)

Answer

Billy Joel mentioned U2 as something in 1960. That is the year the spy plane was shot done.

The band U2 started in 1976, but they really didn't get popular until the mid-1980s.

Could wind cause me to speed?

Physics

March 26, 2015

Question

Can a strong gust of wind speed up car that is moving at 30mph to 36mph. This happened to me as I went through a Gatzo speed camera and is definitely true. I have to appear in a magistrates court on 30, March, 2015. I am using this as a defence and need evidence to prove it can happen ( which it did ) I am an elderly man of 70 years old, with 50 years of driving experience and have never had any points on my licence.
This definitely happened to me and I have no way of proving it.
I hope an email from you will help.

Regards.

Stephen - UK (25862)

Answer

If a gust of wind pushing on the back of your car was well over 30 mph, it could cause the car to speed up. However, I do not think that would be a defence in court, since you have no proof of the ind gust. The court could say that if the wind increased your speed, you should have braked to slow down to the speed limit.

I think a better defence would be to plead that you have been a safe driver for 50 years and that you did not intentionally speed. Perhaps a gust of wind increased your speed, just at the wrong time. Often, with your good record and being apologetic about the incident will cause the judge to let you off with a warning.

I hope everything works out for the best.

Export to Kindle is greyed out

Publishing

March 25, 2015

Question

I have noticed that Export for Kindle is greyed out on InDesign CS4 on Windows 8.

Do you have an idea as to why this is so? The book is indeed open and it works on Windows 7. Is this a Windows 7 vs 8 issue?

Thank you.

Daniel - Canada (25861)

Answer

You need to have downloaded the Kindle Plugin for InDesign.

It should work with ID CS4 for both Win 7 and Win 8.

Note that the present Adobe InDesign CC strategy is to have users export to an EPUB file that Amazon can then convert to the Kindle MOBI format. However, the Kindle Pulgin should still work for CS4.

I hope that helps.

Character

March 24, 2015

Question

I see that you revised this article in January 2014, however can you provide me with the original date so that I can correctly cite my reference.

Thank You

Robyn - USA (25854)

Answer

The "Character Resources" page was originally done on 6 December 2002 and last revised on 24 April 2012.

However, I think you are referring to another article. "Ambition" was originally written in 29 May 2007, and "Social Character Traits" was originally written on 8 February 2007.

I hope that helps.

Friend sees sparks or light when plugging into an outlet

Physics

March 24, 2015

Question

Sorry this may not be the same as static shock but just a question maybe you can help for a friend is it possible to see lights comes out of the sockets when plugging in to sockets ???

Debbie - UK (25855)

Answer

Some devices cause a small spark when plugged into an outlet. I know that when I plug in my laptop, I always see a small spark. It doesn't seem to hurt anything.

The only time such a spark can be dangerous is if there are inflammable gases or fumes in the air nearby. The spark could then set off an explosion.

Knowledge

March 23, 2015

Question

what causes structural imperfection

momoh - Nigeria (25848)

Answer

Structural imperfection usually concerns imperfections or tiny defects in crystalline materials, where perfections is very important. This can cause the material to be structurally weak.

However, the expression can also apply to written works that are well-done but have grammatical or structure errors.

In an case, care must be taken to avoid any defective material from entering the process.

Question

My name is Erik Seidenberg and I am an Assistant Director for Summer Study Programs. Summer Study has been running pre-college programs for 25 years and our Penn State program is one of the largest and most successful in the country. We also offer opportunities at The Sorbonne in Paris, Colorado State University, and Fordham University. We offer a great mix of college credit and enrichment courses as well as fun and exciting summer opportunities for teens.
I wanted to reach out to you and inquire about placing a link to our site on your website so we may offer these opportunities to young adults. We believe that taking our classes in the summer not only prepares students for the rigors of college, but puts them in a great position to be accepted in to the college of their dreams. Please let me know if this would be a possibility and if you have some time please check out our website at summerstudy.com. Thank you so much for your time and consideration

What sound frequencies are used by animals that use echoes?

Physics

March 23, 2015

Question

please help to answer grade 4 science question:
what sound frequencies are used by animals that use echoes?

Gitana - Canada (25851)

Answer

Bats and some whales are a few animals that use echolocation to find prey.

Bats use frequencies that range from 14,000 Hz to well over 100,000 Hz. Humans can only hear between 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Thus, some humans can hear the lower frequency chirps of some bats.
