  1. Hey what about the poor people on the island? Or were you meaning a desert island?
  2. We did it a couple of years ago and I can't really remember specific details but there was not very much to fill in and not very much room to do so anyway.
  3. Another vote for Derek Owens. If you do the regular option you can get help from him whenever you need it. He responds really quickly to questions and will send the student videos explaining the thing they are having difficulties with. He is a fantastic teacher!
  4. My dd found that she was awarded more credits for her AP tests than she earned for her dual credit classes. We self studied for one so that made it very affordable.
  5. Yes we do a Lego Robotics camp too, which is a great fundraiser, but it is an absolute ton of work!
  6. We have a yearly yard sale for our robotics team and we have found it most effective to not price the items but to ask people to donate what they want or what the item is worth to them. We do sometimes put minimum donation notices on big ticket items, but have found that this method almost doubles the amount we make from the sale.
  7. Just wondering if you do this on-line? Do you have a website or something? Might be a service people on here are looking for.
  8. I think my dd used it for her first Spanish class at college. She only used it for 1 semester though as she tested up several levels when she started college. It seemed ok and she had a good semester and learned stuff. The annoying thing was that we had to spend a lot of money on the book, which is usually used for 3 semesters, for her to use it for only 1. She still has it if you end up needing one ( if that is the right one I'm thinking of lol)

    Wanted to buy - used copy of The Fallacy Detective (2015)

  10. Following. My dd is interested in getting a keyboard.
  11. I think it is a type of 'Bleeding Heart' plant.
  12. I always thought this way too but have changed my opinion. I think there may be some kids who are helped by that boundary. Then again maybe it's just because I've gotten old lol!
  13. I've always had everyone call me by my first name, but I'm starting to rethink that now. I'm the coach of a robotics team and I really think it might help some of the kids be more polite if they had to call me Mrs. ... I'm kind of sad about it because I've always gone by my first name and never really had a problem until recent times.

  15. Thank you all for the great information about the Georgia Public Broadcasting course!
  16. I could really use some help figuring out what to do for dd for chemistry this year. It's coming down to the wire and I just can't decide. My dh lost his main job so I really need to be careful with expenses. I have the Spectrum Chemistry set, would need to buy the consumable set - chemicals etc, that oldest dd used. However, we did not have a great year with that because, although dd got good grades on the tests etc, she felt like she wasn't really understanding things well. So now I am pretty intimidated about trying to use it again with youngest dd. I have looked at the parent graded Clover Valley option and both my dd and I thought the honors class looked good. However, even though the parent graded option is significantly cheaper, you also need the textbook, not cheap, and the lab kit, so adds up to quite a bit. I've looked and looked at the pinned Chemistry thread but can't seem to come up with good ideas. What would you do if you were me? I should add that I have only rudimentary chemistry knowledge myself.
  17. I'm sorry you are so upset by this. It might be better for your peace of mind to just move on from this now that you have expressed your opinion.
  18. Oh my, hope this doesn't make it more complicated. We have had it pretty easy here because the school is really co-operative and has always been really easy to work with.

    There is Atrial Flutter as well as Atrial Fibrillation and they can happen at different rates. The reason people in A Fib need to be on anticoagulants is that the atrial chambers of their hearts are not beating uniformly and so it's possible for clots to form as the atria are not being emptied of blood efficiently when the heart beats and the clots can travel to other places like the brain. In my experience, anyone not just transiently in A Fib also gets put on anticoags and not just meds to slow the rate down like beta blockers. Other fast rhythms like SVT don't usually need anticoags because the atria are emptying properly.

    If you are in AFib that much you should be on blood thinners now. If it is SVT then you don't need to be, but in AFib it is essential to lessen the risk of stroke.

    Good, glad you're on blood thinners! I sort of thought from what you said that you might not be. Usually they use beta blockers and calcium channel blockers to slow your rate and sometimes slowing it down allows you to convert to normal sinus rhythm. Another med they use is Amiodarone which is an anti-arrhythmic medication to try and convert you to normal rhythm.

    If you are pretty continuously in AFib you need to be on blood thinners to reduce the risk of stroke.
  23. Congratulations! That's wonderful! Well done to your dd!
  24. I don't think any of them ever get trashed for wearing high street brand clothes or M&S. In my experience when I lived there, the British public, and the press, thought it was a good quality not a bad one.
  25. Yes it does! You're hating on them for hating on her. I don't know what the truth is about Meghan. I don't suppose any of us really do.
