  • How do you go about teaching English abroad?

    I just wondered which qualification(s) you need to work abroad, teaching English as a foreign language? Also do you need to be able to talk a foreign language already? I'm from the UK and would love to work in cover countries. Thank you for the help in advance.

  • What books and other media would people recommend on Modern Physics, Sciences and Fringe Sciences?

    I'm a bit behind with the sciences now and I used to have a huge interest in them. I'm thinking of doing my teacher training course later in the year to either teach Physics or Maths so I'd like to freshen up my knowledge. What books would people recommend on areas like Modern Physics, Sciences and Fringe Sciences? Also any TV shows/DVDs or other types of media that you can recommend would be great. I don't mean like Sci-Fi books but proper reference/resource/non-fiction media.

  • Pokemon White Team help?

    I'm trying to get a competitive team together focussed on Cloyster as the lead Pokemon. I thought something along the lines of

    Cloyster, Ferrothorn. I don't know what to choose for the other 4 Pokemon however. What types should I focus on? The rules are that I can only have 1 Legendary Pokemon in my team. I'd like to incorporate a Scizor if possible also. Any info on what types of Pokemon to use with those 3 would be greatly appreciated.

  • I feel like I've wasted my life at 26?

    I'm 26 and finished my degree when I was 23 and haven't done much since. I was qualified in Systems Engineering at Masters level and got a 2:1. I had a guaranteed job if I moved back to my home town but it would mean leaving my best friend back 200 miles away and he has been struggling with Psychosis so I really didn't want to leave him.

    Now I feel trapped here and useless. I haven't had a job in 18 months and my friend's condition has deteriorated and he just treats me like rubbish daily even though I try to help him through every day. I feel like I did the wrong degree and would have much preferred to do Law or Criminology and had dreams since I was 15 of moving and living in America or Japan. None of which have happened and without having a girlfriend in a long time also I just feel alone and that I've made wrong choices my whole life.

    Anybody who can offer advice on how to get out of these seemingly impossibly deep pit I'd be very grateful to or anybody who finds themselves in a similar situation? I have the motivation to succeed but unfortunately I think it's balanced out by my general misery at mistakes of the past and feeling useless.

  • What type of saxophone should I get?

    I'm getting a saxophone this week for the first timeand I'm not fully sure which one I need. I would like to play things like Bryan Ferry - Let's Stick Together, George Michael - Careless Whisper, Pink Floyd - Money etc. I was considering an Alto Sax but will that be adequate for those songs. Can somebody explain the differences between the 4 types and also suggest some help when looking for your first one. I play guitar and bass so I do have a music background. Just want to try something new.

  • Why does our internet constantly run slow and lag?

    We pay a ridiculous amount each month in our house for cable broadband from Virgin Media. We have a 20Mb/s connection from them and it just runs pathetically. A lot of the time I can't open a page it runs that slow. This includes pages like google that require no connection at all. Also if I'm downloading anything the maximum download speed I ever get and very rarely is 600kB/s which is nowhere near the over 2MB/s I should be getting from high quality servers. What is most annoying is if I'm playing games with my American friends on my PS3 I get constant lag and can't really play with them on any game. I live in the UK and I really am not happy with the connection I'm receiving. Is anyone else with Virgin and not happy and has anyone changed ISP providers as I want to change.

  • What are the best books on Psuedo Science and Micro expressions?

    I'd prefer more encyclopedic kind of books that cover more areas of the topic areas but at a basic level. Pseudo-sciences such as Transmogrification, Precognition and Dark Matter etc.

  • What parcel companies are cheapest when sending from the UK to Sweden?

    I want to send a parcel that is about 10kg from the UK to Sweden for as cheap as possible but it needs to offer insurance up to £1000. However it can take up to 21 days to be delivered so it doesn't have to be an express service. What would you recommend?

    Are there any violins that are full size for beginners that are fairly cheap but are still of a high enough quality to sound good. Cheap acoustic and electric models if you can off some examples. I'm a guitarist who wants to try something a bit different.

  • Learning Japanese language (spoken/written)?

    I'm interested in learning Japanese for moving from UK to live in the country and would love to get to grips with the basics and move on to more advanced parts of the language. What books would you recommend that are quite interactive and involve cds to work along with. I'd like a big book if possible that goes from the basics of japanese verbal and written languages through to the complex stuff. As if you were going through the levels that they have of japanese in the country.

    Cheers :)
