  • Blood Pressure swings 20 points?

    I sat down at the local safeway and tested my blood pressure. First reading 147, second reading 132 and third reading 127. Is this accurate and which number is right?

    I have tried this another day and get relatively the same results. My doctor previous to my own blood pressure tests said my blood pressure was a bit high so now I am monitoring this daily. However I am not sure if a concurrent reading is accurate? Should I take an average, low, or first reading?

    any help will be greatly appreciated

  • Whats wrong with my dog (urine)?

    I have a lab german shepard mix. She has been trained to go outside to pee, but when she sleeps she seems to not control it and even when she is just laying inside during the day. Its not a large amount, but definitely noticeable.

    We let her outside several times a day so I dont think that is the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,

  • Engine noise at 2000 and 2500 RPM?

    I have a 1995 infinity j30 with 150,000 miles. When I am in neutral or driving I hear a light grinding/rattle sound at only about 2000RPM then it goes away and once again at about 2500RPM the same noise will be heard when I decelerate. I have no idea what this could be or how to fix it so any help would be greatly appreciated

  • For all for the Uninformed Hamas Started not Israel?

    Too many people here believe that Israel started this war by blockading the border. It is true that Israel and Egypt blocked the border, however what many of you on here dont know is that Israel said it will open the borders once there will be a complete stop to the rocket attacks. And as anyone with a brain can go back and see that the rockets did not stop, but instead continued. Thus Israel stayed to its word and continued the blockade until all rocket attacks stopped. This was no provocation if Hamas stopped firing rockets the border would open up to food and supplies, but instead they decided to keep firing rockets at innocent citizens.

  • Why so much hate for Jews?

    Why have jews been persecuted all their lives. i mean if one goes back to history the romans, egyptians, nazis, catholic church and numerous others have always persecuted them. I know that Jews like money and many have lots of it so is it jealousy or what?

  • Are the Arab nations Ignorant or is it me?

    Israel has been getting hit with rockets for the last 7 or 8 days. There have been repeated warnings from Israel to stop. So Israel fights back targeting only military installations unlike the Hamas. And all of a sudden Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and other arab nations are shocked and use ridiculous terminology like war crimes, genocide, holocaust and many more.

  • Obama and donating money?

    Obama released his tax returns for the last 10 years to the public. Making huge amounts of money making from about $200,000 to a couple of million. "From 2000 through 2004, the senator and his wife never gave more than $3,500 a year in charitable donations -- about 1 percent of their annual earnings. In 2005, however, that total jumped to $77,315 (4.7 percent of annual earnings), and to $60,307 in 2006 (6.1 percent)."(Huffington Post)

    Its odd that he says he is so for social issues yet when it comes to his money he only donates a lousy less 1% of his income. Then only once the possibility of politics comes to play he boost his givings to a insignificant 4.7%

  • Will Obama Suspend Campaign?

    Do you guys think Obama will suspend his campaign and delay the Friday debate. McCain just recently decided to suspend his and has asked Obama to do the same so they can both go back to the Senate and try to resolve the bailout bill?

  • What is your solution to Iran?

    I was wondering from both democrats and republicans what they would like to be seen happen with Iran. For those of you who don't know, just recently Iran had a military parade showing off all their missiles with a military truck carrying a banner which read "Israel should be eliminated from the universe" in both English and Farsi. The UN security council has already slapped Iran with three sets of sanctions for their refusal to stop their nuclear program.

    Something that I would like to see is having those plants taken out just like they were taken out in Iraq by Israel in the 1980's under "Operation Opera." I believe these actions need to be taken to prevent a nuclear war.

    Interested to know what you guys think

  • Ban on short selling?

    I heard that the US government and I believe the British government banned short selling. I was wondering how they can do this or enforce this. Was a law passed where short selling is unlawful or is the government just "asking" investors not to sell short.

  • New campy cassette and not so smooth?

    I just replaced my 9 speed cassette to a campy veloce. The thing is that it runs not as smooth as before I replaced it. I thought it was the chain, but the guy at the shop said my chain was fine, but that it wasnt a campy chain. So now before I spend close to 50 on a new campy chain will this solve my problem.

    Note: It feels like a small rattle kind of like rubbing on some other metal but i made sure it wasnt rubbing on the derailleur cage. Also im not sure if the old cassette was campy but i am sure the chain ring is and the derailleur.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
