  • What can you do with an Xbox One that you can't do with an Xbox 360?

    Give me specifics please, like are there more apps available on Xbox One, more/ better accessories, a better web browser, etc? I mainly use mine (Xbox 360) for watching DVD's and streaming music/ video from my PC, but if there's more fun stuff with the One that I'm missing out on, I'd like to find out. Thanks!

We've tried yellow incandescent ones but they didn't work one bit! We don't want to kill them, just keep them off the porch.

Over the next few hours it got worse and my stomach got bloated (felt like it was full of air) I went to the bathroom around 7pm and had a little bit of loose stool that had pieces of some salad greens I had had on a sandwich for lunch around 1pm. I felt a little bit better but stomach was still bloated. 20 minutes later the nausea got Even worse and I knew I was soon to throw up, which also had pieces of the salad greens from earlier. Immediately afterward my stomach was no longer bloated and I felt normal again. What could have caused this? I don t have a history of digestive issues, acid reflux, etc and am otherwise healthy.

The lines from the wall are not connect to the lines from the sink. With the water supply under the sink turned off, One of the lines from the wall is dripping water from the end that would connect to the line coming from the faucet. Does this mean that the valve under the sink is leaking? Do I need to shut off the main water supply to the whole house? Thanks!

  • How to mathematically find the midpoint of a series of numbers?

    An embellishment session went awry and I ended up with stray iron-on glue in two unintended spots on this sweater. I got out as much of the glue as possible (I imagine the trace residue will come out in a few more spot washes), but the real problem is that my initial scrubbing attempts with a damp, soapy washcloth ended up fading out some of the color! It's not horrible, but it IS apparent and it makes me so mad every time I see it. I really don't want to add anymore "stuff" to the sweater (decoration to cover up the spots), so, short of buying a new one and starting over, is there any way that the fading can be repaired at home or maybe by a tailor? It's a royal blue sweater, 81% cotton, 16% nylon, 3% spandex. Thanks!

  • What happens if you don't pay a returned item fee?

    I had $10 in a checking account I never use at "Bank 1", so I made an electronic transfer to move it into my other checking account at a different, online only "Bank 2" that I do use. Trouble is, I FORGOT I had already put the transfer in about a week before, and I made a *second* $10 transfer. What happened is that the original, good transfer went through fine, but the 2nd transfer was reversed by "Bank 1" (where it was coming from) and then charged a $35 ACH returned item fee. They had sent the money, then they took the money back before it was ever made available to be used. 1) I'm opted out of courtesy pay at both banks, so I don't get why "Bank 1" charged a $35 fee for allowing the transfer to go through and then reversing it; shouldn't it have been declined to begin with if I don't have courtesy pay enabled? 2) As I said, I basically never use the checking account at "Bank 1" except for the rare occasion I'd need to send a check to someone I wouldn't want having my bank and routing numbers. They are a terrible bank and the only reason I'm still a member is because my oldest credit card is through them and I'm not quite ready to close that card yet. Since there's no activity on the account (last time it was used prior to this $10 transfer mess was almost two years ago), nothing gets paid from it or is linked to it, there's no possibility of it being further overdrawn and bouncing checks to creditors, etc. That being said, what consequences would ensue if I do not pay the returned item fee? Currently the balance is only overdrawn the $35 fee, as the 2nd $10 transfer was reversed. Any credit score damage, legal issues if the account just sits there at -$35? I don't care if they want to close the account, cancel the credit card, etc.

    I just started job at Company A last month and will be under probation period for 90 days. Due to various internal confusion and miscommunication I only recently was able to begin training for the position. Now I am considering a better opportunity at my previous employer Company B (similar work but more pay, in different department from where I was before) which, if offered, I would not hesitate to take. It's a good organization and the work is not bad, but the compensation is even worse than I was told during the hiring process and I don't really feel like I fit in with the existing company culture on a personal level. It was also very unsettling being at the mercy of their unpredictable confusion for nearly my entire first month. My position is an entry-level one in which a fair number of more new hires are imminent, so it wouldn't exactly be an irreplaceable blow to them if I were to leave right now before being fully settled in. Problem: Do I include Company A on my resume sent to Company B? I'm not worried about a gap by not including them, but would Company B be able to find that employment even if I don't disclose it on my resume? If asked in an interview why I left Company A (especially so soon after starting), how could I explain the reason in a professional-sounding way? Problem #2: How do I explain to Company A my reason for leaving so soon? Obviously I wouldn't expect a good reference from them for my next job, but for the sake of professional courtesy is it enough to reference the apparent lack of a good fit after a shaky start while still in probation? Thanks!

I don't have a bedframe right now so my plan is to put the box spring directly on the (carpeted) floor for height. But I realize this is not optimal for the mattress because it can't ventilate, plus the box springs warp over time. So I wondered if it would be possible to add the slatted bed base *on top* of the box spring so that the mattress will not be sitting directly on top of the box and has airflow. I know one is usually used in place of the other--- but would it work to use both that way? IIRC this is how the IKEA showroom here had it set up--- except on top of a frame. Thanks!

    I love my Canon Powershot A620, but after six years of faithful service it is getting time to upgrade. I tried the G12 and was very disappointed with how noisy the photos are, even in RAW mode. At ISO's above 400 the grain was terrible and the focus was always disappointingly soft even when viewing under 50% of actual size onscreen. No way would I dream of shooting at the max 3200 ISO this piece of garbage claims to have! So, I'm looking for a point-and-shoot in the under $400 range with the following features: - Vari-angle LCD (flips out to the side as well as rotates up and down) - Easy to carry around (can fit modestly inside a mid-sized purse or tote bag). - GOOD optics. Not looking for art book-worthy prints, but images ought to at least look good on an average computer screen. - minimum 5x optical zoom - minimum 8.0 MP - RAW file ability would be nice, but not necessary. I'm not loyal to any particular brand but do want a reliable mainstream brand that can be trusted to capture good photos. I've been taking photos for over a decade and have never been so disappointed by a camera before. Thanks!
