I have a relative who's in a moderately successful band. He and his wife have been together for a VERY long time (before he even joined the band), and are a great couple on the surface. However, he IS gone a good 3/4 of the year on tour. A while ago another relative nonchalantly asked me if I thought with him being gone so much, that he cheats on her. At the time I was shocked that she would ask and said "no". The band is the type that likes to party and drink a lot, and there IS one member that gets really friendly with the women. When I went to their last concert I finally began to notice how many women came up to my relative to talk/take pictures and how much there were on him physically. Then I thought "what if?" It's weird to think about, and I have met other guys in bands who cheat all the time...but do most of them cheat? Does it come with the territory?4 AnswersMarriage & Divorce8 years ago
Hi everyone, as the title suggests I'm currently a senior in high school. However, it's already January and I've only applied to one college (a state school). Despite what people have said about not having cost being the deciding factor, I'm about lower middle class and live with a single father. My dad never went to college, and has no clue what to do about the college situation, and as of yet hasn't sought out anyone to help us. The first few months of school I would constantly visit the school guidance counselor almost begging for help at the end, but eventually gave up because she would wisk me away. Now, I had a good idea of what colleges I wanted to go to but I am going to college for learning my major, not just to go to college. Currently, there's not many state schools that have my major. I received a scholarship for free tuition for state schools, but I have no clue how to get other scholarships...I don't even know about financial aide at all! My counsaler gave me fee waivers for applications finally the week before Christmas break, but from what I've heard from a lot of people is that financial aide is a lengthy and difficult process.
I know people usually take a year off for a "break", and to be honest, I don't think I need one. The only reason I'm confused about taking a year off is that it would give me more time to learn about the application process and actually sit down with people from colleges. I just don't know how difficult the processes will be. From what I read scholarships and financial aide can cover right up to dorm costs, but like I said I just don't know anything about it. Right now, my average unweighted is 3.8, and I have a 4.1 weighted average, and then unweighted my class rank is 14 out of 110 (so top 15%). I mean, that's not the greatest qualifications especially as my SAT's were right around the average for the colleges I'm applying to, but I'm thinking maybe I can get another group of SAT scores if I apply next year? Also, the major I want is a tad competitive and you need a portfolio to get in. I have an adequate amount of material, but I was thinking of working on more (if I did take a year off). I'm just really confused, and want to get into a good college so I can get a job n my desired field, but no one's here to help me. Should I wait and try to get help?
Thanks!1 AnswerHigher Education (University +)8 years ago
Hi guys, for the past few weeks I've been having severe printer trouble. These isn't your standard printer problems either. When I left for vacation, for some reason of another my father unplugged the cable connecting the printer to the tower. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem, but when I went to print after I plugged the printer back in it wouldn't print; the printer status read "offline". So I went to the printer on my control panel and switched it. There was a check next to the printer's picture that said "ready". Now when I went to print again the status read "no responding" with a yellow exclamation point sign. When I went back to the print section on my control panel it read "error" this time.
Now after research I have...Installed an updated driver, checked for updates on the comp/printer, checked and restarted the spooler, went through all the ports (when changed status reads "ready" only for a few seconds and then changes back to error), rebooted the whole system, and rebooted the printer. I also ran windows troubleshooter which checks all common printer problems such as connectivity, spooler, and driver problems and everything came up good. So I have no clue as to what the problem could be.
My printer is around 2 1/2- 3 years old and is a Canon Pixma MP480 which works fine and still prints scans and pictures just not anything off the computer. The computer also works fine and is a compaq presario make and I have windows vista.1 AnswerPrinters9 years ago
I've been interested in becoming a police detective for quite sometime. I have done some reading on the subject and I know that college and street experience (i.e patrol officer) is required. What I want to know is how long does the process usually take? Is the college experience only four years?
Research I have done has told me that it generally takes up to two years of being a patrol officer to even be considered to become a detective? To what extent is this true, and how much does it vary from place to place? Also is there significant difference from working with a major city such as NYC or LA to a smaller city?
Sorry for all the questions within a question, and any help is appreciated, especially of those who have on-hand experience!3 AnswersLaw & Legal9 years ago
Usually I don't pay attention to such things, but recently I noticed one of my teacher's has been behaving strangely towards me. In past years I have had good relations with teachers and have even gotten "close" to a few of them. I'm not one to complain about my teachers or others either, however I think this situation may be effecting my GPA. I'm a junior and enrolled in several Accelerated courses, including English. This teacher is generally well liked by the staff and students and is known for his sense of humor and outgoing persona. He constantly makes jokes or banters with students, but a month or so after school started I've noticed he began to banter with more more than the others and in different ways. For example, he would say things that might have been "daring" for a teacher to say. I have a similar sense of humor so this didn't bother me. He would also call me into his class room in between periods to tell me things about my grades (which he would tell me later in class anyways), and constantly call on me in class (more than anyone else). I didn't find this strange because I always have my hand raised, but I have overheard people say things like "why does he always choose her to answer?" etc. Sometimes if my answers were a little off he would embarrass me in front on the whole class. He constantly embarrasses me as well (which I used to find funny). Again he has never done this with other students (at least not in my classes). I've even noticed that my grade was rather higher than it should be, so I requested to see individual grades but every time I brought it up he said "he forgot". Also, when my speech didn't get voted in he choose me out of all his classes to go to this city-wide "speech contest" because there was an empty spot. I thought this was odd, because there were many others with better speaking skills (I'm a shy person) than I.
So back to the issue...basically now things are the complete opposite. He has stopped calling on me in class altogether, but glances at me irritatedly whenever my hand is raised. It also seems as though he ignores me as well. For instance, he doesn't answer me when I greet him every morning (our parking spaces are near each other) like I have been for the past few months. In the event he does answer it's generally one word phrases... or in a cold tone. My grades seem to be lower than usual as well and when I try to ask to see individual ones (like before) he says he's busy, or makes other excuses. Sometimes he just stares at me like I have no clue what I am saying until I leave. In class I catch him "leering" at me, like in an uncomfortable way. I often hear him talking to a neighboring teacher about me as well, who he also makes jokes about me to. This has happened before though, but only for a few weeks and he acted the same towards me later on. The first time I thought he was just in a bad mood. I mean am I just paranoid or does he have an issue with me? My locker is right near his room so he might have overheard something I said, but I doubt it. I just don't want my grades to drop in his class because I'd like to take Accelerated English senior year as well.5 AnswersMythology & Folklore10 years ago
