  • Definitely avoid Lenovo -worst computer manufacturer ever from my experience!

  • I run a small business and getting exposure online is really hard and was wondering about giving adwords a go.
    Has anyone used adwords here? If so, what are your thought? does it work… is the ROI worth it? I would really appreciate any reviews and experiences you might have using adwords before I bit the bullet.

    Thank you!

  • cam replied to the topic Fibromyalgia and memory loss in the forum Health 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    I think problems with memory are quite common in fibromyalgia. My memory has gone shocking- I used to be able to remember everything but my short term memory is appalling now. I can still remember things from a long time ago but I sometimes simply cannot remember what I did two days ago. I’ll also ask the same person the same question several t…[Read more]

  • cam replied to the topic Melatonin to help stay asleep in the forum Health 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    When I had a period of disturbed sleep pattern, I didn’t find 5HTP or melatonin helped at all. It’s broken down too quickly by the body.

    I tried a course of magnesium and b vitamins and that had the best effect and I was much calmer during the day too.

    Drinking during the week was my main enemy and since I’ve stopped that things have also improved.

    The rationale I saw for that was that the countries where women more readily gravitate towards STEM tend to ones at the lower end of the socio-economic scale. That is, if you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to go to university you damn well make sure you choose a field of study that will afford you the greatest employment and earnings…[Read more]

    There is evidence towards the later, it being argued that if you compare the normal distributions of any traits between males and females you find greater variability in the male bell curve. You simply get way more males at the top and bottom ends of any distribution – more geniuses and more dunces as they say.

    This is also entirely compatible…[Read more]

    “Engineering departments are not exactly known for their bawdy macho sexist culture and the stereotype of nerdy types still kind of holds true today, it is basically still seen by many as being a deeply uncool subject up there with computing.”

    Interesting to hear that. Where I first went to university the engineering departments across the…[Read more]

    For someone who knows nothing about cricket, can you explain what’s happened ? Ball tampering, I appreciate. ..how does it actually work ? I really am clueless about such things.

    • pete replied 1 month ago

      I believe it has to do with roughing up the surface of the ball so it enhances the friction coefficient and therefore gets more spin. I think!

      • ted replied 1 month ago

        Not spin – swing through the air, before it bounces. Roughing up one side, while shining the other side, creates an imbalance in resistance/friction as it moves through the air, so it doesn’t go straight, it swerves, making it harder to judge and hit. This is allegedly more pronounced in some atmospheric conditions than others, though I’m not sure…[Read more]

    Why are you unconvinced about this?

    • Adam replied 1 month ago

      I know it’s not very scientific but it just seems too mind blindingly far out to be true. If eventually we find indisputable proof that it truly is the case then okay but right now I think you need some pretty extraordinary proof for such extraordinary claims.

      Odds or rarity would no longer have any meaning, if the chance of it happening is more…[Read more]

    Celebs such as Sofie Hagan and people like her encourage others to be fat, they encourage people to not do anything about their health and that attitude seems pretty widespread to me. People like her, and they’re very common, are not going to change their habits because portion sizes change they know exactly what they’re doing. They are the…[Read more]

  • cam posted a new activity comment 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    There’s a cultural meme that being fat is okay. Fat is beautiful, saying people are fat is “fat shaming”.

    • Cancer Research’s campaign to raise awareness of obesity as a significant cancer risk seems important and worthwhile to me.

      It is undeniable that being obese is not good for a person, but there is also widespread bullying of fat people and to some degree this ‘meme’ is a reaction to that. So perhaps things are a bit more nuanced than you…[Read more]

    @howard Thats the rather simple and childish view I had when I was 16 – Do you really believe that society should value a slum landlord in the same way it values a heart surgeon?

    I believe that somebody should be valued according to the type of person that they are.

    In your rather simple and childish view, we should value the heart surgeon over…[Read more]

    @ali People trafficking isn’t a job. So no.

    Rubber Duck Manufacturing provides jobs and financial security to the families that work there. In turn they will put that money back into the economy. The actual product can be sold in shops worldwide, providing jobs within the distribution industry… and so on and on.

    The best analogy I ever heard, was about life being a wheel.

    The wheels rim is the population, the wheels hub is life as we know it. Then every single job in the world, is a spoke on that wheel. You can take a spoke away, and it might survive for abit, but eventually it’ll weaken and fail. Every single job is just as important as the next!

  • cam replied to the topic Rotator Cuff tear…. in the forum Health 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I damaged mine, I couldn’t brush or wash my hair, do my bra up etc.

    It took months, I had physio and visited an oesteopath. I also did pilates which made a huge difference to my whole posture. I was advised not to wash windows, the car, do ironing nor vaccuming. As a result my hubby was trained in the art of switching on the hoover.

  • As a tax payer, I hope you are doing the required 35 hours per week job seeking. I’m lead to believe, by certain newspapers, that the unemployed sit around all day, watching tv, drinking stella, and spawning lots of kids.

    Quite how you could do 35 hours per week job seeking eludes me. If you scoured all the local papers, read the job sites, sent…[Read more]

  • Have you tried asking it?

  • Please dont rely on the doctor to provide you with adequate treatment. They wont. Read the facebook group, but essentially you will need 10,000 ui of gel cap vitamin D, theres a list of the decent brands, 100 to 150 of K2, depending on what you weigh and then a decent magnesium supplement. Please also check your blood test results yourself.…[Read more]

  • As someone who has probably used everyone, I do find it does depend on the practitioner a lot, a good physio who is willing to get hands on, move me a bout, and had some posh kit was the best option for me, unfortunately the best one I found lives a long way away from me now, I make do with a combination of chiro and sports therapy at the moment,…[Read more]

  • Putin’s Russia is quite ready to threaten or use conventional military force with no qualms, to interfere in the Western democratic process, kill its political opponents in the UK and stage cyber attacks on UK assets, military and commercial. I take the point that much of this is directed at what it sees as parts of the former Russina / USSR…[Read more]
