Your Questions About Solar Power Partners

Susan asks…

5 year relationship break up – in a tough situation – help?

I know this is a generic question. I feel i don't have an easy escape though.

I still love her, she doesn't love me. She broke up with me.

We still live together for financial reasons. We also have her brother living with us. I earn $630 a week, she earns $400 and her brother earns $125. They are both on government money (she has Aspergers, so gets disability pension). If i move out, they are screwed. Also most of the furniture is mine, so i would be leaving them with nothing. If i moved out, i would be an arsehole.

Is there any way i can make this work by living here? It feels so much easier to remain – i have no friends here, and my family live in a solar powered cottage in a swamp. We lived there before, and it's not very nice, and it's kind of annoying to be with parents when they are alcoholics.

I live in a town called Port Macquarie, north of Sydney. I want to move on and meet new people, but i'm not very outgoing and i've searched for social groups etc. It's not like in the city where i grew up. I could move back to Sydney also, my best friend lives there, but i don't really want to end up back there.

I just don't know what to do. My partner has already formed a long distance relationship, and seeing her constantly messaging him makes me sick. The day they inevitably meet will be unbearable. We were each other's first, and have built each other into who we are now. It's so sad to see that go into someone else's hands.

I can't do normal things that make me happy anymore…. help me?
The recent boyfriend lives interstate, they haven't even met yet, so it is early days. I doubt he could support her yet.

ssadmin answers:

Move out, you worked and paid for the furniture, what do they do with their money?
Get in church, you'll make friends and meet nice girls as well.The United Pentecostal churches are good.

Chris asks…

Need help researching this?

I'm doing a science project and since my partner does not want to do anything, I'm stuck doing all of the work.

Well, my problem is, I have to type up a 1 page research paper on what is known about my topic. At first I thought I was just going to build a solar powered water purifier, but I had no clue what to type up for that. So now I'm doing an experiment where I'm testing to see if artificial light (ie.lightbulbs) would achieve the same amount of water purification as the sun.

But I'm having a hard time finding “backround information” on this.

So, overall, what I am trying to ask is, can someone can help me find links to websites with information that can help me or just type what they know about this topic?

Mary asks…

What brand and model of watch did you wear today and yesterday?

I now wear a LeCoultre “Futurematic” that debuted in 1953. It has a self-wind mechanical movement that displays hours, minutes, seconds and power reserve. It tells me my watch will run 30 more hours if I do not wind it by moving my wrist. It has an 18 karat yellow gold round case 36 mm in diameter with fancy Art Deco strap lugs and a disc on the back for setting the time, so there is no crown at 3.00 on the case band. The dial is champagne enamel with small gold triangle markers at the hours (2 larger ones at 12:00) and black dashes for minutes, larger at 5 minute intervals. It has two sub-dials. One at 3:00 on the main dial shows seconds, and one at 9:00 shows power reserve in hours. Hands are gold Dauphine-style in 3 sizes. The strap is sienna (reddish brown) crocodile skin with a gold buckle.
Yesterday, I wore a Tiffany & Co, “Classic” with manual-wind mechanical movement that displays hours, minutes and seconds (of solar mean time to be specific). It is just a bit smaller than the “Futurematic” with round 18kt. yellow gold case and plainer lugs. The dial is white enamel with gold bar hour markers but no minute markers. A sub-dial at 6:00 shows seconds. Hands are gold baton-style. The strap is black lizard skin with gold buckle.
Antoine LeCoultre began making watch movements in 1833. His grandson David LeCoultre took master watch-maker Edmund Jaeger as a partner at an uncertain date, probably about 1920-1927. I own 1952 and 1953 watches labeled “LeCoultre” and a 1956 one labeled “Jaeger-LeCoultre”.
Charles Lewis Tiffany and John P. Young opened a department store in New York in 1837. Later, they took several partners, and the firm was incorporated as “Tiffany & Company” in 1851. They sold jewelry and introduced Patek Philippe watches to the USA. They eventually began making their own watches too. I once lived about 10 years 2.5 blocks from San Francisco's Tiffany & Co. store at about 450 Post Street I think.
5 POINTS FOR THE MOST THOUROUGH DESCRIPTION OF AN EXCELLENT WATCH!
There is quite contrast between the ladies' watches with none, a Timex, a Vacheron Constantin and a Russian Poljot. I own several Vacherons, including a 1902 railroad approved one with lever to set time, engraved gold hunter case and glass back to display the movement and a 2005 very limited-edition 250th anniversary model. Would you believe I have never owned a Timex? My brother has, however. Poljot was a name used on some waatches made by the Moscow Watch Co. that began in 1961 I think. Sturmanskie and Buran are other Soviet watch brands with some history. Now, Vostok Europe offer watches intended to be cheaper than Swiss ones but not as cheap as Chinese ones. Aviator is another current Russian brand. Tovaricha Olga, kak ti!
John, why do you think your watches stop? I have heard that some people have that problem. Some believe it is magnetism in their bodies. IWC was a pioneer in antimagnetic models with a series of 15 pilot's watches. Then, in 1976, IWC's “Ingenieur” resisted 80,000 Ampere/meters of magnetism with its shielded movement. That is 16.67 times the COsc standard for antimagnetic watches. In 1989, a 500,000 A/m “Ingenieur” appeared. Its critical parts were made of an alloy that resists magnetism. Production of said alloy ceased, so this model could no longer be made. In 2008, I saw some “Ingenieurs” that are still quite antimagnetic priced $5600-$7500 in steel in two sizes. In 2009, I saw some Sinn watches that are rated 80,000 A/m priced $2300 for a basic model to $4600 for a chronograph, all in steel. You might check IWC and Sinn, who are the leaders in antimagnetic wristwatches now.

I just wear a plain and simple Timex…with a leather strap.I have had it for five years and it has not given me any problems….and I wear it every day. I just need a watch that is basic for every day use. It is oval and has a second hand to count the seconds.The strap is black leather and the is at least 10 years old.

WSW 2/19/09 HeLp AsAp HeLp AsAp?

CHICAGO — A landmark Energy Department project to bury carbon dioxide produced by humans has begun as workers sunk a huge drill bit into Illinois ground this week, signaling continued support for a climate change mitigation strategy that has fallen out of favor in many circles.

The start of drilling marks the launch a geological sequestration project that will deposit a million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the ground by 2012.

While that's nothing compared to the several billion tons of CO2 that humans emit yearly, it's the geology of the site that makes the development exciting. The CO2 will be piped into a geological formation that underlies parts of Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky that could eventually hold more than 100 billion tons of CO2.

“This is going to be a large-scale injection of 1 million metric tons, one of the largest injections to date in the U.S.” project manager Robert Finley said here at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting Sunday.

While the Department of Energy and private industry have been pushing to create cheaper renewable energy and investigating increased nuclear-power options to reduce carbon emissions, carbon capture and sequestration remains an attractive idea. It would allow regions of the country like the southeast, which don't have Texas or California-level wind or solar resources, to continue burning coal without contributing to climate change.

To do that, many technological issues will need to be solved. Last year, the Bush administration canceled the DOE's most expensive carbon capture and sequestration project, FutureGen, and some utility executives have questioned whether storing CO2 will actually make sense. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimated that as much as 30 percent of the energy created by a coal plant would have to be spent on just pulling the CO2 out of its flue gas.

But new materials for more selectively capturing CO2 from gas mixes continue to be created in labs like Omar Yaghi's at UCLA and at Georgia Tech under Chris Jones. Those innovations could make the capture part of “carbon capture and sequestration” easier than it currently is. Add in a carbon tax of some form and fossil-fuel power plant operators would have the incentive to start capturing a lot of carbon dioxide. Then, they'll just need somewhere to put it.

The DOE thinks the United States has more than enough underground closet space.

Mt_simon_slide “What we found in the U.S. with the research that we've done over the last 10 years is that there is a significant potential to store CO2 … in these very large reservoirs that are underground,” said John Litynski, who works in the fossil-fuel-centered National Energy Technology Laboratory's Sequestration Division.

But most current sequestration projects use the carbon dioxide to squeeze more oil and gas out of depleted fields. Those fields probably won't cut it for much larger amounts of CO2. For that, we'll have to turn to huge reservoirs deeper underground. That's why the Illinois demonstration project is so important. It will test a formation called the Mt. Simon sandstone, allowing scientists to track in near real-time what happens when they start putting large amounts of compressed carbon dioxide 6,500 feet below the surface.

“We have numbers for what we think the capacity is in the U.S., but the only way to prove that is to actually drill a well,” said Litynski.

Drilling a 6,500-foot well doesn't come cheap — the Illinois Basin project has an $84 million price tag. It's a collaboration between the DOE and industrial partners including Archer Daniels Midland, which is providing the land for the test site and will serve up CO2 from its ethanol fermenters. A group of scientists centered at the Illinois State Geological Survey known as the Midwest Geological Carbon Sequestration Consortium are leading the research.

They'll collect enormous amounts of data about how the CO2 plume moves through the pores in the sandstone. The Mt. Simon formation is particularly attractive because of a series of fortuitous events that have placed three layers of impermeable rock — known as “cap rock” — between the sandstone and the surface. Finley thinks that makes the project a very good bet to succeed in keeping CO2 buried away for what amounts to forever in human timescales.

But the audience at the AAAS meeting who watched the researchers present their sequestration evidence weren't wholly convinced. They gave the presenters a rougher time than one normally sees at this meeting, where most questions are softballs. One audience member noted that the Mt. Simon project was sequestering 10,000 times less CO2 than we'd have to put into the ground each year to offset human emissions.

It's the expense and time needed to scale up the tech that leads renewable energy advocates to complain that money used to make coal cleaner should instead be spent scaling up wind power or installing

William asks…

Pokemon explorers of time advice?

So i'm at the point where your half way through temporal tower and after clearing ten floors you reach Dialga. I tried to beat hime thirty times and lost. I have the technique to use sleep and riviver seeds and oran bearries to help. I'm a level 58 Torchic and my partner is a level 58 Turtwig. Our moves are:
Torchic:
Ember
Hidden Power
Flame Thrower
Dig

Turtwig:
Solar Beam
Giga Drain
Leaf Storm
Razer Leaf

Do you think i should go all the way back to treasure town, train more and gets tons of items or stay where I am and keep trying?
Do you have any tips on helping me defeat Dialga? It would be really helpfull, thanks.

ssadmin answers:

Ok here is what you should do make sure your partner is infront of him and you are on the right or left side of dialga then throw a sleep seed… Your partner will attack… Than once dialga is asleep use flame thrower… Then flamethrower again…and then after using it twice use dig… He will prolly wake up when you are under ground… And then he will attack so beause youre underground you wont get hit and then BAM he gets hit… In the mean time your partner will be using strong attacks too so dialga will be pretty hurt… Keep using those flamethrower and dig and maybe ember too. Between you and your partner he will be K.O.ed so soon
