    I'm not cut out for work

    MB, I agree that it could be a personality conflict. I have that issue with my current employer now. I do agree that his employer should have spoken to him much earlier. Werg, Moonbear's right, by showing that you can handle all the simple things, more responsibility will be allocated to you...

    I'm not cut out for work

    I agree with Andy. However I do also think that it is your employer's responsibility to bring things to your attention if there are behaviors or habits that are negatively affecting your work performance or that of others. If you are unaware of the issue then you have no way to fix it. While...

    News Rice Shortage Felt Around The World

    I wouldn't have thought about it like that. I know I heard about it yesterday when I was listening to the news at work. I also loved how they mentioned there was a rice shortage, but afterward mentioned that it was a shortage in Asian nations, not here in the U.S. However, people aren't going to...

    News Iraq war a self-fulfilling prophesy

    Amp, I think I heard it in passing but nothing in detail. I agree with your assessment of the after affects of the war. However, I think it extends beyond the ecological affects. There are many others that will not be measurable for some time. Such as the psychological affects of the deployment...

    News Iraq war a self-fulfilling prophesy

    W3pcq: "It is a very mysterious time we are living in. It is a time when information is available. It is also a time where information is a tool used to motivate, mislead, recruit, indoctrinate, justify, etc. Sometimes the more you take in the less you know. This is a time when you must listen...

    Is suicide genetic ?

    What I wonder is why people feel suicide is necessary. I'd be curious to find out when suicide really began to happen. Obviously its safe to say it has been around for a very long time. I'd like to know why and when it started. Although I think it's possible to speculate the why portion of my...

    Is suicide genetic ?

    This is kinda similar to what I said earlier about women being more likely to hesitate before they commit suicide. In the time they hesitate they're thinking changes and many times women don't actually commit suicide because of what they start to think about before they go to kill themselves...

    The Fundamental Theorems of Calculus

    Right. Doesn't adding C just mean that the antiderivative belongs to a family of antiderivatives that are all verticle translations of one another? ~Kitty

    Is suicide genetic ?

    Male suicides are much more prevailent than female suicides. I don't think its genetic althought there may be disorders that will put people at risk for suicide. http://www.nimh.nih.gov/suicideprevention/suifact.cfm [Broken] This website has specific findings on suicide rates and causes. I...

    The Fundamental Theorems of Calculus

    Math, I really don't see how this theorem is really the mean value theorem. Isn't the mean value theorem f(c)(b-a) which is really (1/b-a)(b-a)? Grr (I get furstrated when I get confused)...getting confused...:devil: ~Kitty

    Lol, I think its safe to say that it is what he what he meant, but it was in a joking manner. I understand it I think what confuses me is the proof of this theorem. ~Kitty

    Brain Fade About Trig w/Differential

    Multiply 1/(square root of 3) by the (square root of 3)/(square root of 3). Leaving you with the square root of 3 in the numerator and 3 in the denominator. Then multiply that by 2/1 (same thing as 2) to give you 2(square root of 3)/3. How did you think I rationalized?

    Why do dogs smile and chimpanzees cry?

    I didn't mean superior as in it would work way better for them. I'm sorry if it came off that way. For us verbal and sign language is superior than grunting like chimps. I do agree with your statement about humans intruding in their lives. ~Kitty

    Why do dogs smile and chimpanzees cry?

    This is true. SA brings up a good question of why didn't they develop it themselves if it is superior? They have demonstrated the brain capacity is there. ~Kitty

    Classes to take before Calc 1

    That I think is better advice than just skip it if you have to. I can agree with that. Although I think I may go back and take it before I jump straight into calc to make sure I have a very strong base. I already have one since I'm in calculus now as a senior in high school, but I just want to...

    Oh Mattara? Mattara where are you? :wink: That wasn't something I read. I heard about it though. I was just wondering. Yeah mixing outside the body for coagulation is a good idea. How do you go that without opening the bag and exposing the blood to air bourn infections? ~Kitty

    Integral of a function

    So by replacing it with u then you can just deal with the numbers without the square root and then once everything is worked out then you can take the square root. Do I have this correct? ~Kitty

    Blood types

    Wait...is that if you receive the wrong blood type in a transfusion? What if you have already had a transfusion, but you're in the emergency room and they have to transfuse you but they don't know what blood type you are so they use O negative? Will it kill you? ~Kitty

    Integral of a function

    Also what's the purpose of changing the variable from x to u? What's the difference between integrating with respect to x or respect to u? Its still integrating with respect to a variable. ~Kitty

    Integral of a function

    OH! So you CAN do that because all you've done is multiplied by a name for one inside the radical! That would have made one of my problems so much easier. Thanks for explaining. :biggrin: ~Kitty

    I get how to do it and that is the process that I used exactly. I just need to know if my answer is correct. That example does tell me I'm going through the correct process though. I was walking blind through the book. :smile: ~Kitty

    2( square root of 3)/ 3 I believe they are equivalent answers. I think they might have mislabled the answers again. This book is notorious for doing that. ~Kitty
