• Where can I advertise English tutoring services in Europe?

    Hi, I'm an English tutor and I usually teach online. I'd like to know if there are any sort of forums or classifieds (e.g. European craigslist) where I can advertise to potential students in European countries. Germany, France, and Italy are the biggest markets from what I hear.

  • What is the purpose of the brew strength controller on my coffee machine?

    So I bought a Mr Coffee machine and I noticed there was an brew strength option on it, either to make it strong or regular. I just wanted to know what difference it made? I mean, if I wanted to increase the strength of the coffee, I could have just added more coffee beans. Or maybe that's the point? Please help!

  • Is this violin worth the price?

    Hello, I've been playing violin for a solid three years now on an incredibly cheap violin ($100 outfit), and all of a sudden my mom goes and gets a really expensive violin ($1,688 outfit) without consulting me beforehand. Now, while I'm incredibly happy that she would do such a thing, I'm still a little unsure about the quality of the violin. The company itself seems to be legitimate, but $1,400 for a violin is just beyond my understanding. Here's a link to the violin and its description: http://www.stringworks.com/mall/soloistv... Like I said, it looks good but I'm just not entirely sure if the price is fair.

  • How can i make it so my hair sticks to my head? Does wearing a hat work?

    I have typical asian hair that always stands up unless I grow it out really long and then it still resists and resembles a mushroom shape (ugh). So anyhow, I just wanted to know any ways of just having my hair just stick to my head maybe not all the way to the tips but at least for the most part.

  • Any good Actionscript 3.0 Books out there?

    I've been using Actionscript 2.0 for a while now, but just as a beginner. I heard that AS3 puts actions directly into the frames instead of the objects, and this supposed to improve the script, so I'd like to get a book that teaches AS3. I heard the Flash CS3 Professional Bible just teaches AS2, so I guess that's off the list.

I don't want a miracle become-a-master-in-one-day book; I want something pragmatic and give me a very strong foundation in the basics and even dives a bit into the more complicated Game Actionscript.

Anyways, I told her that I wasn't planning to buy anything from the exhibit hall so she told me to get a 1 day general attendee pass because I could attend every event with it for all four days except the exhibit hall. Is this true? And if I do get a 1 day pass and miss out on the exhibit hall would I miss anything interesting? I have been thinking to just spend the extra $30 since it's just a once a year thing anyways.

    So, I signed up for 3 SAT Subject Tests about 5~ weeks earlier before the test date. I started studying about 3 weeks before it, since I was fairly confident that I could get a good score because I am taking AP and Honors courses in 2 of the tests and the third test's subject matter was being taught by a very good teacher. Unfortunately, I realized that not only had I forgotten almost everything in the tests, California standards don't even cover all of the questions asked on the tests. So for the past 3 weeks I scrambled to cram as much information into my head. The day before the test, I've come to the conclusion that I am screwed; I know I'm going to get probably 500s to low 600s on the tests and I decided to retake it again in the fall next school year. I just want to know if these bad scores would reflect badly on my college application or if colleges will look over this mishap and instead consider the scores that will reflect two months of studying over the summer.

    Hey! First of all, I will not be turning vegan any time soon and I probably never will. Also, I am a beginner at cooking, I can stir-fry, marinate, and boil (ha), etc. simple stuff only you know? Well, when I come home, my house is usually empty and there's no food save for some leftovers, so I usually drop by a fast food place on the way. Then I watched Super Size Me again and though I've seen it before, its message really reached out to me. I'm not overweight or anything - but I do want to eat healthy and I want to kind of learn how to cook as well (especially since I'm going off to college soon). So I figure, hey why not learn vegetarian recipes? And I'd like some sort of protein in them (beans, soy, etc.) because they will be my lunch. So can you suggest a site or cookbook for simple beginner vegetarian recipes? And hey if you've got a good simple recipe, it'd be nice if you could share it!
