  1. Just be careful if you have an actual anxiety disorder. Below the tips it says: "Anxiety exercises may not work for everyone and may actually make symptoms worse for people who have a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). If you have GAD, consult your doctor for more effective treatment options."
  2. At this point I would have sat my DS down with me on the computer and insisted that we take care of the money transfer electronically right there and then. Because, this is the 21st century and there is technology. Waiting until a 22 y/o walks his ass to the bank? Nope, not going to happen. And insisting on that would not be the point I would feel the need to make.
  3. OK, if you don't want to, great. FWIW, you do not lose quality when you transfer a cell phone video to a computer. You simply copy the file over - that does not change anything about the resolution. (You may have to adjust the sampling frequency if you work with video editing software that insists on 44k.1Hz by putting it through Handbrake or MovieMaker)
  4. I am saying this gently: you are doing it again! You are again coming up with excuses why you cannot do a thing. I have noticed that in many of your threads. Yes, you can do this. You may decide that you do not WANT to do a thing, and that is fine - but realize that this is your choice. Video editing ain't rocket surgery. You can figure out how to do it if you want to, without needing a man to do it for you. You can also not want to - but then own it.
  5. You can use the cell phone to film outside just fine. Outdoors is easier with lighting anyway. ETA: If you want to learn video editing, you can teach yourself. The internet is your friend. Again: you do not need your DH to do this for you.
  6. No, you don't. You can simply set up your cell phone and film yourself, if your computer does not have a camera. You do not need to beg your DH and wait around for him to get to it.
  7. Neither of my kids have taken any APs. My DD got into a highly selective college without; she had 30- dual enrollment credits from a 4 year uni instead. Having credit rest solely on the performance on a single high stakes exam was a kind of stress she absolutely didn't need.
  8. I like company meals that can be cooked in the oven and are somewhat forgiving of timing, so there is no last minute fiddling at the stove. Baked salmon (in foil, with lemon slices, garlic cloves and hers - looks fabulous), roasted veggies (root veggies in fall, asparagus when in season), roasted potatoes. London broil. Can marinate during the day, grill 6 minutes on each side, can be finished when the guest arrive
  9. Really? How does that tally with the fact that the US is one of the only two countries in the world that does not have maternity leave? The very first kind of support, something every other country has recognized as beneficial for mothers and babies? What about protection for parents who have to take time off work to tend to their sick children? Other developed countries have laws in place that mean parents do not have to choose between caring for a sick kid and keeping their job. What about access to medical care for families who cannot afford insurance? Elsewhere in the developed world, families don't go bankrupt because of medical bills. Nope. Once the kids are born, support for those who really need it is pretty thin. How else can it be that kids go hungry in one of the richest country of the world???
  10. Of course there would be a drop in birth rate when women can finally choose how many children they wish to bear and raise. I don't think that is surprising or bad.
  11. whatever she can fit. Honestly, writing a card or entire sheet is a brilliant way to encourage synthesis and analysis of information. In college, we were allowed one letter size sheet in our physics classes, with anything we wanted on it. We spent a lot of time constructing our sheets, and it was the most valuable way to review and study.
  12. That's completely up to you and depends on the test. If the test is designed to test memoriziation, then obviously notes/cards/books make no sense. If the test is designed to test conceptual understanding and application of problem solving, I see no harm in a card. FWIW, we give our students in the introductory physics classes a sheet with equations to use on their exams, because the point of the class is not memorizing equations, but understanding concepts and applying the equations.
  13. or when they have a teacher who actually understands math. So many kids end up thinking they suck at math in school, when it was their teachers who sucked in math and should have had no business teaching.
  14. Retention of the paying customer. What's different from decades ago is that public funding has dropped and even public colleges are largely funded by tuition.
  15. The purpose of the hyphen is to remove ambiguity. In the situations referred to by the style guide " if the modifier is “commonly recognized as one phrase, and if the meaning is clean and unambiguous without the hyphen.” the hyphen is superfluous. In situations where the meaning would be ambiguous without a hyphen, the hyphen is still required. I see no reason to be upset about this.
