do you have to be established as a working translator or is there a chance you would be able to do it if you are simply fluent in the languages?

2. What are you doing today?
3. What is the last song you heard?
He's Muslim and rather religious, while I'm Catholic and not religious at all. Last night he gave me a chain with a charm that he always wore. He said it protects him. He told me the story of it and it's rather religious. He put it in my hand when he gave it to me and said that he hopes it will always protect me.
Now my question is, should I wear it? Would that be disrespectful to him or his religion? I'll probably ask him when I next see him, but I just wanted some opinions.
I'm going to start filling it, so I guess I'll see. If it will, in fact, leak- what can I do to stop it up?
edit: it is. very very slowly, but it is.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
And if anyone knows a bit about the disease if you could help me that'd be fantastic. ( Collapse )
They are college students that don't have room for items that take up space. They both love gothic style things, photography, have the biggest music collection that I know of, and video games. That's just a general overview of their likes.
So, what sorts of things would you buy them? Or what would you get someone that was turning 21? (I want to get them more than just the bottle of alcohol.)
For the past two weeks, my skin has been absurdly broken out, to the point that I look like the "Before" picture in a Proactiv ad. My skin has always been excessively oily, but it usually just has a couple of zits, and I control the oil with benzoyl peroxide soap. I may get an extra zit or two around my period, but never anything like this. I haven't had anything like this since junior high, 12 years ago! I haven't changed makeup, soaps, detergents, climates, stressors...anything I can think of!
I've tried increasing my face washing from once a day with the benzoyl peroxide to twice, and that seems to have helped a tiny bit, but only a VERY small amount. (I always wash my face twice a day, but I used to use the special soap once and Ivory once.) If it doesn't calm down in another two weeks I'll go to the doc, but does anyone have any ideas in the meantime what may have caused this and what I can do? I'm the lowest maintenance person ever and not vain at all, but this is really bad!
Here are your two options:
Nature of Mathematics - Mathematical reasoning with additional topics selected from number systems, number theory, computers, probability, statistics, mathematical modeling. Recommended for liberal arts and elementary education students. (MATH10)
Elementary Statistics with Computer - Computer investigation, exploration and simulations of concepts in statistics: descriptive statistics, probability theory, central limit theorem, estimation, hypothesis (parametric & non-parametric), confidence intervals, correlation and linear regression, analysis of variance. (MATH15)
Which would you go for?
Any stories about either class? Warnings before I take one or the other?
Yes, those are my two options. You couldn't pay me to take Calculus. I barely made it through Algebra II on my third try (lets not even talk about Algebra I). I have to get this over and done with in the Spring. It's like ripping off a band-aid, me and my math requirements. I've been slowly peeling it off for years now and I've just got to rip the damn thing off.
The other night when I was sleeping, I had on my air-condition and I was sleeping under a nice comfy blanket. I woke up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. I wasn't sick or anything either. What's the deal with cold sweats? What causes them?
*brainstorms userpic ideas*
"OMG 100 userpics!
As promised, the extra userpics paid account add-on now raises your userpic limit to 100. If you already have extra userpics your limit will be automatically raised. A regular paid account still has a limit of 15 userpics. (Want more userpics? ScrapBook has a feature that allows you to turn any uploaded photo into a userpic. Go to pics.livejournal.com, go to Manage > Galleries, select a public photo from the Edit view of a gallery, then click on “upload/manage user pictures” near the bottom of the screen.)"
1: Is tracing part of an image copyright infringement under US copyright law? - I fully understand that tracing an image is copyright infringment, but I also know that "borrowing" part of an image isn't always, and that copyright is tricky about what elements of a work you can claim to own (like pose...), so i'm wondering if I could, say, fairly trace the contour of a body - no details / features / whatever.
i'm not interested in whether it's "okay", or "moral", or "right", just whether it's legal. yeah, i'm nice like that.
2: does anyone know a good website with information about specific things like this - I know about websites with information on copyright, but they have general information about things like what constitutes fair use, copyright myths, etc
I know about this one: http://co.ntagio.us/eljay/iconmaker/
(Oh, how I miss having Photoshop at work!!!)
Do you think you're justified in breaking up with someone because they have too many problems and are too dependant on you, and you don't want their problems to become your problems?
I've only lived in the USA. Mississippi, Illinois, and Maine.
2. At what age were you allowed to pierce your ears? Or did you have no restriction on ear piercing?
I was watching an episode of Full House where Stephanie wanted her ears pierced, but her dad said she couldn't until she was in Jr. High. I don't understand why it was such a big deal, my parents didn't care one way or the other. I got my first piercings in like 4th grade, 2nd holes in 6th and cartilage in 7th.
3. What would you do if someone revealed a murder plot to you? Assuming it was a good friend of yours and you couldn't tell if they were entirely serious.
I'm not sure.
4. Have you ever known anyone that was on a talkshow? Which one and why?
I knew someone that was on Oprah. It was because her mom was diabetic and wouldn't take care of herself.
any info asap would be great.
He has about 600 so far, and there are so many different ones. Some have the same pictures, but have different designs or code numkbers. We see some at the car-boot-sales and some sell for 10p each, others for £5:00 each.....
How do you know how much cards are worth??
Or how rare they are??
Are 'shiny's' and 'holographic' ones worth more than plain ones??
Is there anywhere in the UK you can get folders?? I have found some on E-bay, but they are from Hong Kong, and I'd like to look at them in person before buying.
Thanks for your help :o)
If someone asked you for a good luck charm, what would you give them?
I have a good luck song (or at least a song I play before I go in for an exam or something) but I'm looking for actual charms that you can hold in your pocket or around your neck... ideas?
It can be words of wisdom, an experience, anything ...
These shorts stand out for out-of-this-world style. Suped up with lightweight microfiber fabric, cool zipper pockets with rubber pull tabs and fully lined in red mesh, they bring an ultra-modern flair to your warm-weather look. In Barley .
Do you have that person in your life you wish you could tell the truth to?? like mean things that you really think but could never tell them because it is ....mean?
What would you like to tell them and who are they?

Does anyone know what I'm talking about - or have a copy they can paste here?
Doesn't need to be GPS capable or anything like that, a client side implementation of MapQuest would work great.
My mac is a Powerbook G3, 400mhz, 384MB ram, OSX Panther... so it needs to run on those specs.
What is your phone model?
What country are you from and what is your service provider?
Any other comments about your phone (ie: reception, standby time, changable faceplates, ringtone variety, etc)
I'm finally thinking about getting a new cell phone (my current model is now obsolete) and was wanting some background information before I head out to the stores.
What do you think of the Internet as a social enforcement tool?
Question inspired by Dog Poop Girl Story.
I am from Bath, England and I have been collecting for about 2 years now and have about 550 autographs in my ever growing collection. My favourites include Shane Richie (British Soap Star) and Doris Day (which I received today.
I have met a few people so far including Russ Abbot (British Comedian), Peter Bowles (actor), Jo Brand (Comedienne), Patsy Palmer, Jonathan Wrather (British Soap Stars), Amanda Parr and Chris Vacher (Newsreaders), Gaby Roslin (TV presenter), Terry Pratchett (author).....all lovely people.....hopefully meeting Richard E Grant and Nigel Havers soon :)
Is there something that Hispanic men like more about white women than other women? I live in a community with a large Mexican population and it seems that many, many of them stare, make lewd comments and suggestions at just about any white woman in their path, but not at women of other races.
I know I'll get flamed for this, but what is it about white women they seem to like better?
2. How can you tell if the gas meter on your car is not accurate/broken? My sister said she filled my car today but the meter only read 80% full. Does she just suck at getting gas, are the gas people ripping us off or is there something really wrong with my car's gauge?
So I then figured, time to quit on caffeine since I obviously don't need it, it obviously is doing nothing for me! (I decide this after I drank a redbull at 9:30 and was nodding off at 10:00).
Around 2:00 I starting having horrid headaches and nausea and minor irritability, which I've come to recognize as "You need another hit, babe" but I resisted all day (drinking mad amounts of water) until tonight when the headache was miserable and advil doesn't help so I drank another redbull a few minutes ago and the headache went away... So apparently it does effect my body in some manner :(
Arg. This is going to be harder than I thought. How do I get off this stuff? Any advice on quitting? Just tough it out?
I will definitely have to leave work at least an hour early on Wednesday, but should I go to work on Thursday? I don't know if that will make me look like a slacker or not. Hey, I did go to the emergency room.
I want to get them each a going-away gift, like they did for me last year. I know I should have some amazing insight on the things college students need, since I went away myself last year, but I'm drawing a total blank. I don't want to get any of the essentials that they will have already bought on their own. If all else fails, I may just try to knit something nice and speedy up for each of them.
So, what are some ideas for nice gifts for college-bound girls? If it's something I can knit or make myself, that's a big bonus.
Also, most of the other attendees at the party will be girls who have also just graduated high school, some of whom I know fairly well, and some I barely know. There's at least one other girl there who I'd like to give something to, but who I most likely won't see again before she leaves for college. Is it rude to give gifts to only a few of the guests, or should I just give gifts to the girls hosting the party?
Why or why not?
