Questions and Answers

Tips For Caring For My New Parakeet?

My boyfriend just bought me two parakeets from a local pet store. I've never had pet birds before, so i'm not really sure what they need and what's bad for them.

how do they need to sleep? I read on the internet they need 10-12 hours of sleep a day, but that's all I know. Do they need to be covered up?

What kind of nutrients, vitamins, and feed do they need? What kind of special treats can I give them every now and then? Do I need to buy seperate vitamin drops from the pet store?

Do they ever need bathed or washed off? Or do they do it theirself in their water bowls?

How much can they be handled? Do they custom to one person? Can anything happen to their feathers or wings if I let them fly around a room? How do you handle them? How do you play with them?




please help me with my new birds.

First question… My keets slept on my sleep sched. Basically, and they lived long healthy lives. I covered them shortly after dark, and uncovered when I woke in the morning. 10-12 hours seems a bit much, but it's what is recommended by the "experts". Covering them IS quite important though. It ensures a good nights sleep, as they are easily startled.

As for food, the best diet for them is a safflower blend for small birds. Most foods are loaded with sunflower seeds. These are very unhealthy for them if given in these massive amounts. Safflower blends are much healthier for them. My keets were always picky with fresh foods, but some scrambled or hard boiled eggs, boiled veggies (You may have to try different kinds of veggies)… Fresh foods are very good for them. Because of their small beaks, I boiled everything for them to make it easier to eat. As for vitamins, do NOT buy the store vitamin drops. It sits and collects bacteria in their food and water. Instead, a healthy diet should suffice. Avoid sugary treats being frequent… They should be given less often. Sunflower seeds, unsalted peanuts… Small seeds and berries are good occasional treats.

As for cleanliness, they take care of themselves pretty well. They do enjoy a sprinkle though. They have shower perches for your birds to sit in the shower with you. Just watch the water pressure coming out of the shower head! You can also spray them with a squirt bottle. They make little bathtubs for their cages also, but 1) they like to poop in them, and 2) I've got a fear of them getting stuck and drowning themselves.

With two keets, it's a bit harder to hand tame them, unless you are doing it in seperate cages. They bond to each other moreso than their owner, making them harder to train. They say birds choose their owners, not the other way around. So don't be offended if they don't take to you right away. Clipping their wings (Which can be done at home, or if inexperienced, at a vet's office) can help them bond with you a bit more. They rely on you more because they can't rely on their wings. It's not cruel in any way. It's painless for them if done correctly. If letting them fly, make sure there is nothing obvious for them to hurt themselves on. Also, I cannot stress enough how important it is to cover windows. It's hard for them to tell the difference between glass and an open window. Flying into the window can injure or kill them. Getting them hand tame is a long process, so you have to be patient. They should be in a quiet room with no distractions. By putting your hand in their cage and letting them get used to it, it will take away the fear of the new object in their home. When they are used to your hand, offer them treats from your hand, so they associate your hand as being something rewarding. When they get used to that, they need to learn how to step-up. This is done by putting your finger to their chest, a bit above the feet, gently pushing on their chest, and saying "step up", This might take some time, but they will learn.

Some additional things… They should have different size perches in their cage. It helps them exercise their feet. Also, avoid the sandpaper perches, for obvious reasons… Would you like to stand on sandpaper? Try to avoid plastic perches as well. The best is to find natural (untreated) wood perches, or rubber perches. They also appreciate a perch that hangs from the top. They seem to like to either sleep there, or swing from it.

Also, most keets LOVE cuddlebones. It has nutrients in it, and it keeps their beak and claws (if the use their claws) trimmed well.

Finally, very important, TOYS! Being bored can lead to attitude problems, and even plucking out their own feathers. They love bells, mirrors, and chew toys.

That's all I've got for now. Any more questions, you can e-mail me at

Diff. Size perches. Cuddlebone. TOYS!

Not bad its almost perfect 9.8/10 your garcomp should have dragon rush garchomp naturally has good attack and this move is physical plus u have sword dance which will make it even more powerful. It may not hit a 100% but it is a good chance this move will hit the opponent and when it does your opponent is in trouble plus the sword dance sharply raises your attack so it shouled be a guarantied win. I also recommend having a brave nature other than that your doing good man keep it up.

What are some of the accomplishments of Oprah Winfrey?

[display_name id=”1″]

Oprah began her broadcasting career at WVOL radio in Nashville while still in high school. At the age of 19, she became the youngest person and the first African-American woman to anchor the news at Nashville's WTVF-TV. She then relocated to Baltimore's WJZ-TV to co-anchor the Six O'Clock News and later went on to become co-host of its local talk show, People Are Talking.

In 1984, Oprah moved to Chicago to host WLS-TV's morning talk show, AM Chicago, which became the number one local talk show—surpassing ratings for Donahue—just one month after she began. In less than a year, the show expanded to one hour and was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show. It entered national syndication in 1986, becoming the highest-rated talk show in television history. In 1988, she established Harpo Studios, a production facility in Chicago, making her the third woman in the American entertainment industry (after Mary Pickford and Lucille Ball) to own her own studio.

The Oprah Winfrey Show has remained the number one talk show for 20 consecutive seasons*. Produced by her own production company, Harpo Productions, Inc., the show is seen by an estimated 48 million viewers a week in the United States** and is broadcast internationally in 126 countries.

Oprah has long believed that education is the door to freedom, offering a chance at a brighter future. Through her private charity, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation, she has awarded hundreds of grants to organizations that support the education and empowerment of women, children and families in the United States and around the world. Amongst her various philanthropic contributions, she has donated millions of dollars toward providing a better education for students who have merit but no means. She also has developed schools to educate thousands of underserved children internationally and created "The Oprah Winfrey Scholars Program," which gives scholarships to students determined to use their education to give back to their communities in the United States and abroad.

In December 2002, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation expanded its global humanitarian efforts with her ChristmasKindness South Africa 2002 initiative that included visits to orphanages and rural schools in South Africa where 50,000 children received gifts of food, clothing, athletic shoes, school supplies, books and toys. Sixty-three rural schools received libraries and teacher education.

During a December 2000 visit with Nelson Mandela, Oprah pledged $10 million to build a school in South Africa. As that commitment broadened, she established The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, to which she has contributed more than $40 million toward the creation of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls—South Africa, which opens in January 2007. Located in a 28-building campus in Henley-on-Klip, the Leadership Academy is a state-of-the-art independent school that will engender high standards of academic achievement and service leadership for girls. Its first 152 accepted 7th and 8th grade students, who show outstanding promise despite their impoverished backgrounds and social circumstances, represent all nine South African provinces. By 2011, the Leadership Academy will accommodate approximately 75 learners per grade, for a total of approximately 450 learners, grades 7 through 12. Her vision is that the Leadership Academy will help develop the future women leaders of South Africa.

In a 1997 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah encouraged viewers to use their lives to make a difference in the lives of others, which led to the creation of the public charity Oprah's Angel Network in 1998. To date, Oprah's Angel Network has raised more than $50 million, with 100% of audience donations going to non-profit organizations across the globe. Oprah's Angel Network has helped establish scholarships and schools, support women's shelters and build youth centers and homes—changing the future for people all over the world.

Oprah's commitment to children also led her to initiate the National Child Protection Act in 1991, when she testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to establish a national database of convicted child abusers. On December 20, 1993, President Clinton signed the national "Oprah Bill" into law.

Questions and Answers

Can a Lead Investigator working for the FBI lead a case on his own, or does he require to have a team?

I am a writer/filmmaker working on my feature, and I'm interested on how an agent of the FBI handles a homicide, serial murder to be in particular. I've done some research, but none of it makes it clear as to whether a Detective can lead an entire case on his own.

Posted by InVertigo
[display_name id=”1″]

The FBI does not investigate Homicides, except for Murders that happen on Federal property or the Murder of government witness etc. There are many services that the FBI performs that assists in Homicide investigations like laboratory services, Behavioral Analysis studies etc. But, unlike TV, FBI agents don't go out and investigate murders.

I spent over 12 years investigating murders (including one on federal property that the FBI was more than willing to let us handle instead of them).

What happens in a real Homicide division, is that the detectives work the "wheel". Everybody takes turns on taking new cases. When a job comes in, the Sergeant assigns it to the next detective up. If it is a suicide, or a suspicious death, the assigned detective may get two or three other Homicide detectives to help out (along with detectives from the local districts). If it is an "H" the whole squad turns out to work. The "assigned detective" or lead detective has to put the case together, but he or she gets assistance from the rest of the squad and of course the crime scene unit. District detectives and anybody else). The assigned detective holds that case until it is finished in Court, or until all the leads are exhausted, and he/she puts it up on the shelf. If something new pops up a year later, the same assigned picks the case back up.

In real life, nobody solves a Murder by him/herself. Death investigation is a team sport. It takes a good assigned detective, good murder cops, good crime scene guys, good laboratory folks, good intelligence information and it all starts out by being handled right in the beginning by good street cops.

The FBI is great at white collar crime, bank robbers and counter terrorism, but Homicide cases belong to real murder cops. And, they are always willing to help with resources.

In all of my years in Homicide, and hundreds of murders, I only saw the FBI take three cases. They were Federal witnesses who were murdered to shut them up. And guess what, we did almost all of the work for them.

Should I try to help our local police department with a recent crime?

A girl was murdered and stuffed in a crawl space a week ago (6 blocks from my house).. And I have been frantic/paranoid ever since.

I have read up extensively on every little detail concerning this matter. All news stories, news articles, the girls myspace and facebook etc…

Long story short, a lot of people in our community believe the (half-)sister did it. I can write a list of how the sister is the only one that could have did it.. And things that the police are probably overlooking (like the sister saying that her cat can "open the door for strangers").

Should I write a list and take it to the police? Would they even look at it?
Right now they "don't have any suspects".

It took them a week to find the body in the crawl space! Our PD is horrible!!

Posted by PlasticTrees
[display_name id=”1″]

Hey, its you again! Didn't I tell you not to be frantic/paranoid about it? Seriously, you are fine.

Do you have any real reason to believe the sister murdered her? (The mere fact that the sister's cat can open doors just means she has a very strange cat– it doesn't mean the sister's a murderer).

Every detective learns in "Detective School 101" that close family members are always the first suspects in a murder, so they have probably already gotten an alibi from the sister, or otherwise ruled her out as a suspect.

But by all means, if you think you have a real lead that the detectives are not considering, call up the PD on the telephone, and ask to talk to a detective, and ask if they have considered the sister, and give your reasons why you think she murdered her.

Hint: Don't do this if all you are going on is news reports and myspace accounts (unless it says something on myspace that definately indicates the sister was planning physical violence). If this is the case, then you will probably just be wasting their time.

Whatever happened to former LAPD detective Mark Furman?

Mark Furman was a lead Det. In the O.J. Investigation.

[display_name id=”1″]

After the trial, Fuhrman retired from the LAPD and moved to Sandpoint, Idaho and wrote a book about the Simpson case, called Murder in Brentwood. For his next book, Murder in Greenwich, he investigated the then-unsolved 1975 murder of Martha Moxley and presented his theory that the murderer was Michael Skakel, nephew of Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Senator Robert Kennedy. Skakel was convicted for the murder in June 2002. The book was made into a TV movie in 2002, starring Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Oz) as Fuhrman.

In May 1998, Mark Fuhrman was given a polygraph test on the Fox Network show Lie Detector. The test's administrator claimed the results indicated that Fuhrman did not plant the bloody glove and that he was not aware of the bloody glove before entering Simpson's property.

More recently, Fuhrman has written books on the controversial subjects of capital punishment and the medical treatment and death of Terri Schiavo.

Most recently, he has written a book on the John F. Kennedy assassination. In it he advances a theory debunking the Single Bullet Theory while still maintaining that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. He claims that the Warren Commission was forced to adopt the Single Bullet Theory for political reasons. However, he says that a dent in the presidential limousine used that day in the chrome above the windshield vindicates the story told by John Connally that a first shot at President John Kennedy did not hit him.

Fuhrman is a frequent guest of conservative commentator Sean Hannity and a contributor for FOX News. He is also the host of the popular Spokane, WA radio show "The Mark Fuhrman Show" on AM radio station 1510 KGA between the hours of 8am-11am Pacific. The show covers local and national topics and includes many guest callers and listeners.

In response to the proposed book If I Did It written by O.J. Simpson to be published by ReganBooks (an imprint of HarperCollins), Fuhrman stated that he would drop HarperCollins as publisher of his own books in the future. However, Simpson's book has since been cancelled.

U.S. Hospitals that practice collaborative medicine w/ salaried doctors:

Mayo Clinic – Rochester, Minnesota
Cleveland Clinic – Cleveland, Ohio

Other top U.S. Hospitals:

Johns Hopkins – Baltimore
Massachusetts General Hospital – Boston
UCLA Medical Center – Los Angeles
New York Presbyterian Cornell Weil (?) – NYC

Some top hospitals outside the U.S.:

Bangkok, Thailand: The Bumrungrad Medical Center has established itself as a Mecca in medical tourism, combing quality health care with reasonable costs. But steer clear of the hospitals and basic services in Thailand's coastal resorts. Thailand, in short, is today among the best places in Asia for top-rate hospital care at reasonable prices. Surgical fees for an appendectomy there range between $180 and $740; in Australia, a surgeon performing the same operation charges between $380 and $2,150.

Thailand has, at the top end, some of the best health care in the world.

I say this as someone who with my girlfriend has spent way too close to a million Baht and way too much time in hospitals in Thailand. (And in the States.)

The Bangkok Hospital Group (BGH) and Bumrungrad (BH) have better information systems than all but maybe a few hospitals in the States. BH runs Hospital2000. Research it. BGH something similar. Can your local hospital print pharmacy labels in English, Thai, Farsi, and Russian? Can a physician see your consult notes from another physician on the other side of the hospital ten minutes after your last appointment?

The physical facilities are very, very clean. And they are abundantly staffed.

Singapore: A star of Asian health care is Singapore's ParkwayHealth, with its 16 hospitals and 3,300 beds across the continent.
Gleneagles and Raffles are also good.

Hong Kong Adventist and the Matilda Hospital. But with China booming and ex-pat executives dashing to Hong Kong for medical care, the city's private medical costs are climbing at an alarming rate, rapidly approaching those in the U.S.

Sydney, Australia: Prince of Wales teaching hospital in is a leader in Australia's national health care system. Best kept secret: floors five to seven are for pampered private patients.

London, UK: Harley Street doctors have attracted foreign travelers for a century. But the gold standard remains the London Clinic. Established in 1932, it provides translators to wealthy clients who don’t speak English.

Zurich, Switzerland: Want Swiss-style pampering and quality? The world-famous Klinik Hirslanden in Zurich treats everything from headaches to cancer. Its more exotic offerings include a sports injuries clinic and a sleep center.

Paris, France: The American Hospital Of Paris, founded by American ex-pats in the suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, is as much a part of Parisian history as the Eiffel Tower.

Vienna, Austria: Fall ill while in Eastern Europe and you'll want to hotfoot it to one of the many quality private clinics in Vienna. Among them is the 160-bed Privatklinik Döbling. Others are Wiener Privatklinik, Goldenes Kreuz Privatklinik and the Rudolfinerhaus.

Panama City, Panama: Hospital Punta Pacifica is a Johns Hopkins Medicine International affiliate. The other class act in town is the Centro Médico Paitilla.

Painting over top of bad paint?


I'm renting a place that was built in the 70's and has a few layers of paint on it. The top most one was done badly and you can very easily scratch it off with a fingernail, and underneath you see a white. They also painted the baseboards the same color for some reason. I shall be asking my landlord for permission, but my question is this:

Is there a way that I can paint over the bad layer of paint with my own color, or will I have to remove it completely and start from scratch?

I'm not sure if the white paint underneath is a primer, or if it was the previous color.


Posted by ~*Emma*~
[display_name id=”1″]

Well, back in the 70's, they (I think) still used lead-based paint. I'd consider getting it checked out, as painting over it won't get rid of the lead…. I don't know if you have kids, but even to you it's toxic, and more so to them…

I also found this online:

Lead-based paint was used in homes before 1978 and is still found in older buildings today. The dust and chips from this paint are dangerous, because it has such a high lead content. Pregnant women and small children are particularly susceptible to the high lead levels in lead-based paint. Although lead-based paint that is not damaged or peeling is not dangerous, it requires removal as soon as it begins to deteriorate. This used to be done only by professionals, but now, special products are available enable you to remove it without creating more dust or chips that can harm you. Call your local municipality to find out about any regulations regarding lead paint before you begin

Questions and Answers

Targeting local seo………………..?

In local search engine optimization, you are guaranteed a greater chance to get to the top of search engine lists. A lot of people do not realize that local SEM is way better since you do not get to spend that much financial capital. Most large companies pay SEO services and that usually leads to added capital but longer time for return of investment.

Posted by Ain Bel
[display_name id=”1″]

I'm not sure what the question is, but yes large companies to pay for SEO services. The ROI is based on a longer time frame, but they also have a lot more at steak and cannot afford to be perceived as spam in the eyes of the engines or consumers. Large companies also do the same thing for localized search.

What is local listing?

Posted by
[display_name id=”1″]

Local listing allows one to get targeted traffic. This is why majority of commercial website owners have their businesses or websites listed in local listings or directories.

There are local listing services on the internet that caters to businesses or websites based on a specific location.

There are several search engine services that provide these services. These include Google Local Business, MapQuest,, Google Places, and Yelp, among others. Web users who perform searching for a business will easily find goods or services within their specific area of search.

Business owners can take advantage of local business marketing as it can deliver tremendous boon for their business. In fact, local listing SEO is considered to be another form of effective search engine optimization for any website.

This is especially true for local businesses since online visibility can help the business flourish locally.

Most web users indicate the local places or cities that they wanted to perform a search on to produce a more targeted result on search engines.

Website owners must therefore make sure to align with leading search engines as portal for their local business. It enables their business website to compete with other similar businesses in the area where a local listing search is performed.

An example is when users type in a specific city or location in addition to a keyword related to their search.

Instead of typing in the keyword "bicycle store", the user will type in "bicycle store in Anaheim, California" as a keyword. This will automatically prompt the search engines to identify bicycle store websites that are locally based in Anaheim, California.

Can I get no-lead ammo in 17 HMR?

My teenage boy (he is almost 16) and I shoot shotguns at our local skeet range in California where lead is not allowed. Only Bismuth and Steel shot is allowed, lead is banned because it pollutes the lake.
We are awaiting delivery of his first rifle, a very tame small caliber rifle – a Savage 17HMR. It seems all the 17 HMR ammo in the local store uses lead bullets. Can we get steel (or other non-lead) ammo for the 17HMR and where? Our main concern is to avoid lead while doing target practice with real bullets.
