John 12:42-43 (KJV)
42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
I want to be successful but i want to know the pros and cons of being wealthy and successful and known. Is there any REAL chance for REAL happiness and love?
My daughter, who is 12, is beginning to back talk, bend the rules her dad and I set and just in general being annoying! I know this can be typical teenager behavior, but I don’t know what to do. She is on the phone constantly (4-5 hrs at a time) and then gets on the computer to im her friends. I have to remind her of her chores, but yet she demands to know when she can go to a friends, to the movies, etc… how do I make her understand she is only 12 and not 16?
The way teachers and coaches speak and act in K-12 schools, it definitely is NOT okay to be average. They send the message that only the students who get above average grades are okay, and only the teams and athletes who win most of the time are okay.
But logic and common sense tell us that it is IMPOSSIBLE for everyone to win most of the time.
For one team, athlete or student to be above average, another team, athlete or student must be below average.
What team or nation would boast “We’re Number 27!”
The best comedic commentary on all this from the movie “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” starring Will Ferrell as Ricky Bobby: “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”
So, I see enormous pressure in K-12 on students (and teachers too) to be GREAT, to be one of the BEST, to be an ABOVE AVERAGE achiever. And this spirit and ethos is also present at many of the employers where these students end up.
It all sounds good. Who can argue with the value of excellence?
Yet, there seems to be one little problem: There is NO way everyone can be above average.
Some people, of a more “Liberal” bent, often say it is okay to be average, or even below average, that there’s no shame in it, and that no one should let it affect their self esteem.
The problem I see with this Liberal approach is that the economy and the wider world is not Liberal, and so, as a matter of practical reality, students and adults who are not above average find it much harder to earn a living, and end up with the more sucky jobs, and often end up living in the least desirable (and sometimes unsafe) neighborhoods. So, being average and below average has practical consequences. It hurts. Yet, in a Capitalist and Democratic country, there MUST be winners and losers, since everything is big competition.
I honestly don’t know what should be my attitude towards and philosophy about Competitiveness and the Quest for Excellence (the root word, “excel,” means to be above average, to go beyond the common lot of people).
On the one hand, it is easy to see that the “winners” of life have more enjoyable, more secure, more peaceful lives.
On the other hand, the Capitalist philosophy of “to victor goes the spoils” seems way too Darwinian for me, way too “survival of the fittest.” (To me, it is no accident that one of the Columbine mass murderers, Eric Harris, wore a t-shirt during the massacre with the phrase “Natural Selection” emblazoned across the front.)
So, I am asking for people here in Yahoo! Answers to tell what is their personal philosophy regarding this whole cultural demand that everyone be a strong competitor and end up being and remaining above average (when that is simply impossible). Thank you.
1.) Biblical Law. Matthew 5:17-18 says quite clearly that Jesus demands Christians follow Old Testament law completely, to the smallest possible point. Why don’t they?
2.) Infanticide. The modern Christian churches of the world tend to gloss the fact that God is a child killer—the 10th plague in Egypt—and say that Jesus set this right. Ignoring for a moment that the crucifixion is just one more child killing to fulfill God’s will, why does Jesus say he also will kill children in Revelation 2:23?
3.) Fact or Allegory. The Bible says the Earth is between 6,000 and 8,000 years old, that it was created in 7 days, and that Man is made of dirt and Woman a piece of Man. Most churches today say that this is allegory. What passages of the Bible support it all being just allegory?
4.)Needle’s Eye. Jesus said rich men don’t go to Heaven easily and even implied that it wasn’t possible. Why are so many people with money and property Christian if they are probably going to Hell?
5.)Apocrypha and Biblical Revisions. The Bible of 400 CE and the Bible today differ by dozens of chapters and thousands of parts. Which Bible is the word of God and why does man edit it?
6.)Born Fallen. Even in this global age there are millions of persons who never hear the Good News. We are born in sin. Do some go to Hell just because of their birth circumstances?
7.)Graven Images. Isn’t wearing the cross and making statues and movies of the life of the Christ a violation of the 2nd Commandment? “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image…”
8.)Inquisitions, Crusades, Witch Trials. Historians put the number of those killed and executed by Christian churches at between 2 and 15 million; mostly Jews, witches/pagans, and Muslims. Do Christians retain this murderous nature? If not, why not?
9.) Turn the other Cheek. Jesus instructs the saved to love and to forgive even deadly insults (Matthew 5:44: “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” et cetera). Why do no prominent Christian leaders to follow this?
10.) Free will. Freedom to choose is given to man by God. Man has two main choices: 1) accept the Love of God and, upon death, go to paradise for eternity, 2) Refuse God and, upon death, just die, be utterly damned. How is that freedom of choice when it is the same thing as a gun to your head?
go to this website and watch the first video on the left hand side of the page titled 10 questions that every intelligent christian answer”
No one said I based what I feel on the website. YOU are a moron. But to the others…what do you think of the video? how do you answer those questions? really?
So,I’m not Christian,but it sounds like a very nice religion.And I was wondering if I would fit well in it (it’s about to sound like an obvious no soon.)With still being able to like the things I like.
OK.Here’s a list of thing that I support.
1.Controversial books. (some include rape and violence.Magic and evil)
2.Controversial music.(My chemical romance,Panic,Marylin Manson.Music with death violence.)
3.DARK humor.I mean baby being used as a football dark.Freakin’ DARK
5.Abortion rights for incest and rapes.(not stupid schoolidiots)
6.Controversial movies (violence,cussing,sex(not fond of tthat part)
7.Cussing.(Average of at least five cusses a day by my guess.)
8.BBelievingthat people have a right to bbelievewhat they want,without being evil.
10.Think premarital sex is fine (protection and love involved,or coarse)
Now could I love all those and still be a good Christian?
Also,some thing that I’m curious about.
Do people of other religions,even if they were good people,go to hell.Or after they die do they get like,another chance to bbelieve

I am teaching my first ever college course and I can only remember when taking this class myself, that I nearly fell asleep because it was so boring. Help me think of a few fun assignments or activities to keep the class learning and interested! It is a sophomore level course.
For English we have to do a short roleplay and while I’m getting full marks in everything else I have no clue how to act or anything XD; So me and my partner are doing this thing and it sort of consists of two monologues each, but two of them are more of one-sided conversations to get some interaction in there.
We aren’t suppossed to write scripts but I need something as a guide to help me get going :3 Could you tell me what you think of this so far and any tips on how to act it? It’s got to be about 30-60 seconds long if I’m going to keep in the time.
Note: I am an abusive husband who is scolding his wife for coming in late.
Who do you think you are idling around on my doorstep when you were supposed to be in here five minutes ago? Hmm? I gave you a curfew of 7 o clock and yet here you are, stood on MY doorstep at five minutes past seven? Do you really think I let you live under my roof just so you can ignore every single word I speak? Who do you think you are, stood on my doorstep without a happy care in the world when you are SUPPOSED to be inside? You’re lucky I’m in a good mood or else you’d be suffering some serious consequences, woman. What’s your excuse then, hmm? Did you lose track of the time? Were you really that STUPID as to lose track of the time when I gave you a SPECIFIC time to be here? Or maybe you were… what is it… hanging out with your friends? Oh wait, of course you weren’t! You don’t have any of these so-called friends, do you? Do you know why? Because I OWN you. You’re mine and I won’t stand for your petty little friendships when you have a place to be, which is in that house – cleaning. So what is it? Hmm? Do you plan on telling me or are you just going to stand there all day like the spineless little woman you are?
If anyone thinks anything is inappropriate to be said in a school then please tell me ^^;

I help my mom by watching my 8 year old sister before and after school. She’s a good girl when she tries to be. She’s very bright and can be a sweet girl.
Unfortunately lately I’ve had a lot of problems with her. She mouths off at me, argues every point even when you give her a reasonable explanation in a calm voice, she is stubborn and she gets angry when she doesn’t get her way.
I know this is probably normal behaviour but it is frustrating to deal with. I’m doing my best to be a good big sister and a good babysitter. I try not to yell at her. I try to talk to her both calmly and firmly but it feels like all she does is take advantage of me or act worse.
My mom is expecting me to stick with this and not quit on her since my other sister is 12 and in school and doesn’t get home until around 4 pm. I am almost 23, live on my own and married and I am doing this as a favour to her as well as working myself.
How do I deal with this behaviour without either losing my temper nor caving in to her demands?
My mom has tried lecturing her, grounding her, taking away priveleges for not behaving and she acts this way at school too. I am not allowed to spank her either, so that is out of the question as I’m her sister not a parent
pleeeeaaaseee…. i suck at economics!! :S
I make $9,000 a year. I want to strip for money. my man and I have been together for 5 years.If I strip I will bring home $19,200 a year or $60,000 a year. and save money for my collage I want to go to which is $19,000 a year. my Financial aid is only $5,550 a year. He won’t let me drive my car. because of it’s a crappy car but he can drive it. And he does not want me to strip for money. I told him I will give him money.the money will gratefully help us out. and he makes $10,000 a year. our bills together not included gas, tp, food, ect..we have 2 cats to feed and take care of. is $1,000 a month. and we gotta buy things to wash out dishes and cloths so that’s over $1,00 a months. and both of us smoke a pack of smokes a day. they r $4 a pack to buy. what should I do. and he said If I strip we will have PROBLEMS.
and we owe ppl money $900 to many ppl
Just wondering what all of these sinful gluttons will expect me to do to accommodate their laziness?
Will the Government, run by whales like Chris Christie, demand that all furniture be made to hold at least 500 pounds of irresponsible pigs who can’t keep themselves from eating a pound of sausage for breakfast?
Will the fatties demand that all doors be widened from 3 feet wide to 6 feet wide so they can get in without having to turn sideways or so two fatties can walk in side by side?
My 4 year old son actually had the 4 year old neighbor kid say to him “your lucky you have a skinny daddy that can play with you, my daddy is so fat he sits in the chair to play catch with me.”
What other accommodations will be made for the 100 million, most of whom are conservatives like Christie? What will need to be done to make all these personal responsibility haters happy?
What will need to be done to make them all feel “normal”?
Will they ever actually say “we did not choose to weigh as much as a cow”?
Being disgustingly obese is not a choice is it? LOL
Jeez people…is it that hard to see when clear points are being made? Rather than moving towards being a nation of healthy people American’s are simply going to point to numerous reasons why there is an obesity epidemic, toss the blame on the food industry or the Government for not better regulating the free enterprise food industry…Americans sure the hell are not going to do anything to end the obesity epidemic, if anything they will fight to preserve the status quo.
Only a handful of Americans seem to take the stand that if food producers, business owners and consumers themselves are the CAUSE of the epidemic…if these Americans will not take any personal responsibility anywhere along the line, like children it should be forced on them.
Maybe Government should make it a crime to feed McDonalds to a kid more than once a week…how about it lazy no cook parents, you agree with that?
Maybe it is a good idea for Government to enforce a “kid’s eat broccoli 3 times a we
This might be a hard question for some people to anwser because they are not open minded.but anyway society feels that a man shouldnt be able to abandon his kids no matter what the situation is. He should just suck it up regardless .society feel if it was his sperm he should be a father period even if a woman stole his sperm from the trash its too bad for him.but society also feels that a woman should be able to abandon her responsibility as a mom even if she was irresponsible.she can just give her child to someone else to raise and finacially provide for it.than society say aww it was a selfless thing for her to do.no i think it was a selfish thing to do to give the child up for her own selfish reasons.because no matter what she could have got a job and busted her butt to make sure the kid have a comfortable life.why do you think this double standard exist?and i was a teen mom I had my first child at 18 and I had 2 kids by 21.but me and kids father busted our butt to provide.it not easy but it can be done. Thats a consequence of having sex it should go for both sexes not just one!
I truly angry and confused, I just want to find a way to take control of this situation. This is a long written out problem but I honestly need someone’s help.
I’m the legal guardian of a 16 yr old boy, his name is Jacob. I’ll try to make this a short story. I got custody over Jacob when he 7 because his mom was my best friend and she died a single mother with no other family and his father died before he was born. So I have taken him in and raised him. He’s the greatest kid he’s my only kid and he’s like a best friend to me. He’s accepted as family to my whole family.
My parents died a couple years ago and when they did i think our bond grow closer because we were able to help each other cope.
I have a sister who is 16 who now lives with my grandmother after my parent’s death. They live about two blocks away me. When my parents died Jacob and my little sister got close being able to relate to one another
Him and my sister have been dating for the last 2 years. At first i was mad that out of all the people in the world that my little sister and the kid that I’m raising are falling for each other. But i realized that they cared a lot for each other and my grandmother and I thought that they were helping each other get past the pain that they have been through.
The first year and a half was cute with them but i guess teenage hormones kicked in and they have been all over each other. It’s gotten to the point where it’s disgusting, they are very inappropriate in public places. For example, being all over each other like animals in a movie theater and they make disgusting sexual remarks towards each other when other people are around. Its embarrassing. Last week i walked into my house and they were dry humping. I sat them down and asked them if they were having sex and they lied to me and said no. I know for a fact that they’ve been for at least the last month that they’ve been having sex like rabbits whenever and wherever they can in my house, I’ve been finding used condoms everywhere, again disgusting. I told them cool down on their behavior that it was bothering me hoping that they would listen.
They didn’t listen and a couple of days ago I caught them in my home cutting class to have oral sex in my room. I didn’t think I was yelling at them but i guess i was. I’m pissed that they cut class to have sex and I might be more pissed that they had sex in my bedroom.
They told me that they were sorry for what happen and that they would never do it again in my room but they told that it was hard for them not to be completely all over each other when they are around one another and they told me for the last month they’ve been having sex 3-4 times a day. They said its addictive to them.
They are really good kids who are great students in school and the fact that they would skip school to have sex, worries me.
What should I do? Should I make them spend time apart from each other? How do I stop their inappropriate behavior? Should I be worried?
We all know that marriage is between one man and one woman. That is nature. That is science. That’s the way it is. Religion has nothing to do with to do with this debate. Why is at that the Proposition 8 opponents always seem to attack religion? Are they truly intolerant? I thought hate was not a family value.
I saw it today. It had such a different ending than what you’d expect. Did anyone else find the same?
and no it doesn’t come out tomorrow. It came out yesterday. In Australia it did anyway…
So I have noticed a little change with my daughters wardrobe in the past 2 1/2 weeks. She has been wearing sweatshirts when it is 90 or hotter degrees outside, she wears those tight skinny jeans and some all star high top shoes. Also, I’ve noticed my razor blades have been disappearing from the tool box I also heard some of the lifeguards at the pool saying they saw cut marks on a girls arm. She is wanting to dye her hair black and pierce her lip, she is listening to different music now some band called Hawthorne something and a lot of interesting bands. I’ve been looking up articles about this “Emo” lifestyle. I noticed that my daughter seems depressed she has for awhile now, but I just assumed it was because I started dating and spending less time with her but, that doesn’t seem to be the problem every time I try to watch a movie with her or have a girls night out she goes upstairs in her room and sits on the computer and listens to music. What is going on with my daughter?
I really don’t know what could make her sad or mad, I try to talk to her but she avoids me at all costs. When she does talk we usually fight and the fights always end in an “I HATE YOU, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND” then she goes up to her room and hides.
None of her friends are “Emo” or into the music she is into. I really don’t think she is trying to find herself and I don’t think that when you self harm yourself it is a stage, there has to be something behind it.
I think there is such great potential within this game… even better than GTA 3 and GTA San Andreas. The plotline is amazing and the finale of the game where Tommy Vercetti single-handedly defeats Lance and Sonny’s henchmen…? That things are GOLD! It reminds me to scarface a lot (only Tommy is not slaughtered in the end)!
Which part of the game should be incorporated in the movie then? Which properties and dirty business should be included in the major plotline? I believe at least counterfeit and “fleshy” bussines of Candy Suxxx must be on the movie…
What do you all think here? How should GTA Vice City be adapted in the movies? Would they dare enough to shoot the movie in Miami? Who should play Tommy (and Lance, Diaz, Colonel Cortez, Mercedes, Candy, Sonny, etc) in the movie? Any personal idea and suggestion? If there were open audition for this Vice City movie, would you join? What part would you be?
is the movie’s story plot similar to the movie the fugitive starring harrison ford
past few months I found out that my 12 yr.old son stole my jewelries and gave it to his female friend (a classmate). I got the shocked of my life when the girl and her grandmother came to my house to return the stuffs that my son gave her. After that we also found out that he used my husbands credit card to pay to download a game from the internet. He has been stealing money from us too but he doesn’t spend it. today when i was cleaning his room I found a cable bill under his pillows and saw some video on demand being charged, 2 were adult movies. I’ve already talked to him but i still need more advices about this..pls. help.
something that wont bore my 9th grade english class..
I am an 19 year old not from LA, wanting to seriously pursue a singing career and was wanting to know where abouts would be the best place in Los Angeles to live/rent, near to places with open mic nights, connections to the music industry ect. Where it is safe on a moderate budget.
My brother’s 14yrs old daughter ran away after school hours, 15days ago & has just been found. As the parents bring her back home, the big question looming is – How do we go ahead with her?
Top of my head are the below thoughts :
1) First get her back, make her comfortable @ her home, do not reprimand, just lovingly treat her until her mental state of mind returns to normalcy.
2) Next, with gentle probing, identify what really prompted her actions so as to get to the root of the problem & correct it.
3) Withdraw her from the current school & restart the term in a new school (to avoid old school-mates ridiculing her actions).
4) Entire family relocate to another town to avoid social stigma. (Please note we live in India).
5) Once the girl has mentally relaxed, have a good talk, maybe some counselling, & make her understand the consequences of her actions & the facts of life. After-all it would be most unhealthy to just keep her confined under watchful eyes & restrict her outdoor activities.
Need your advise on all this. The toughest parts are – (a) getting to the root of the problem, (b)ensuring she doesn’t run away again and (c)she not doing something drastic like attempting suicide, etc.
About the girl :
The girl is very outgoing…..makes friends easily.
She was allowed to pursue her interest in learning/teaching/giving dance performances.
Coming from a not so economically well-off family, she lives in a little village and has had limitations on socializing, has not been given a mobile phone and has not been introduced to the world of internet. The few outings to a mall/movie have been only with parents & not with other girlfriends.
Her extra friendliness with boys was noticed a year ago & she was warned to stay away from getting into any relationships with boys.
From a very young age itself, it was noticed that she loves dressing up extra and putting on make-up (lipstick, blusher, huge earrings) not just for special occassions, but also secretly when going out anywhere. At times she was found in school with a make-up kit in the school bag.
She doesn’t hesitate to ask others to buy her gifts despite the parents providing her most of her demands.
I believe she commented to her friends that her father seems to favour their dog and the toddler next door rather than herself….but her parents claim to shower her with lots of affection.
About the parents :
I believe they have not been abusive or violent. After many many years, just a year ago, the girl received a spanking for bunking school & visiting a mall very far away with a couple of boys & girls without parent’s knowledge.
Parents have provided to their best capacity what ever she needed, at times given her a little beyond their means too.
Mother is a house-wife and hence takes care of the children’s upbringing. Father has a job & provides for the family. The girl loves her older brother.
We are all at a total loss trying to understand what prompted her actions and more importantly, how do we react now. How do we bring her up in the right way without blundering again?

In the article “History of the Goths,” Iain Rowan writes:
“Along the way, they gave their name to current Gotland in Sweden and Gdansk in Poland.”
Which answer uses “current” with the same meaning as in the passage?
￼In the current, our canoe drifted randomly to the bank.
￼The strong current was cause for caution along the beach.
￼The current trend toward civil discourse should be encouraged.
￼The household current was interrupted during the lightning storm.
In the article “Solar Power: Hype or Hope,” the author, Keith Brooke, writes:
“So while today India produces around 150 gigawatts from “dirty” sources, in 2020 it aims to be producing 20 gigawatts from solar, leaving 280 gigawatts to be produced by some other means. While such approaches may slow the increase in polluting activities, they are nowhere near enough.”
According to this excerpt, what will be the overall effect of India adding 20 gigawatts of solar electricity?
￼It will significantly reduce the pollution in India.
￼It will not have a positive effect on global power policies.
￼It will make a sizable impact on pollution or power production.
￼It will help meet India’s demand, but not significantly reduce pollution
Read the following excerpt from Keith Brooke’s “Save the Planet: Eat More Vegetables.”
“Why should this matter to us and to the planet? It’s impossible to unravel the personal from the global: Each decision an individual makes about how to live his or her life has an impact at a global level. If we make informed choices about what we eat, then we help begin the shift to a more sustainable form of agriculture. Caring about each broiler chicken, or about the damage caused by rearing cattle for fast-food burgers, is inextricably linked to what happens on a global scale.

Marietta Edgecombe, was the one who told on D.A but in the movie, Cho Chang was the one who told. Now if we are talking about the book, why did he get mad at cho, she wasnt the one who told on them.
Hi, don’t know how to make the story short. But I got green card for my mother of 56 years old to come from Iran to USA. As I knew she likes nice stuff, my boyfriend and I (my daughter lives with us 6 yrs old) moved to a very nice luxury apartment with lots of amenities so mom can have a nice experience. the complex has inside movie theatre, valet parking, 3 pools, 4 hot tubs, 2 community rooms, 2 gyms, and etc. my boyfriend and I sleep in one bed, and my mom and my daughter were supposed to sleep in the other. she is an artist, so I spoke with the apt manager to let her use the community room ( huge luxury studio with balcony) as her art class. our balcony opens to a garden where I thought she would paint. we wanted her to live with us forever.
Problem: Since she came here, she feels entitled of everything, very negative, demanding, puts me down, wants my boyfriend out of here, wants a boyfriend. Doesn’t want to teach, wants a gallery and thinks we should leave our life go after renting a gallery for her, despite my disagreement, she brought 70 paintings from iran. she doesn’t like my daughter to call her grandma and etc. In the first 15 days, we tried to please her, bought her a computer, desk, all the new bed and mattress and stuff, bought her iPhone with unlimited national, international talk and text, took her places but nothing was enough, she thought it’s my responsibility to make her famous. She was criticizing and etc. Anyways, when I confronted her that my boyfriend is the one paying for everything and she is crazy thinking he should be out just because he speaks English!!! and she doesn’t understand, and that I expected her to at least cook, or play with my daughter, or be a little nice or appreciative, she picked up the phone and called everyone in Iran and in USA, anyone she could possibly know and on Facebook that I am mean to her, I am crazy, I have mental issues, I am just like my dad, I have anger issues and I am the worst daughter ever, so others would feel sorry for her and try to save her, … all because she wants her own independence and she doesn’t understand this is America and she doesn’t even know English and can’t read bills… anyways, lots of family hated me, tried to rescue her, took her places, but as she was super demanding and non-appreciative, one by one they avoided her phone calls. Now tomorrow she is moving out, she is milking my brothers who are in England to pay for her living expenses here to have her own place, and blames me for being a monster.
Do you think I was mean to her?… worse than that I am really worried about her how she is gonna survive on her own???
I Enjoy my job, it’s just all the third grade drama is driving me nuts. I work for a small company, and the “buddy system” is going on. They promoted some guy above me who has no experience, is a loud dumb redneck, and he’s my boss childhood buddy. And then that guy got his cousin hired, who is also a useless tool. The company is going to go under soon if they keep this up.
I need to start being a arrogant moron I guess, I think it’s the only way you get promoted… “Office Space” is a great movie. heh
I have to tell him how to do his job all day long, and he’s making more money than I am. I got pissed off today when he kept asking me questions and I said “You are the foreman, you figure it out” then I went back to my project. After work today, the boss chewed me out for that.
Love the work, and it pays well, It’s just irritating that some dumb redneck is getting more money than I am and he’s now my boss. I get paid like 10 dollars more an hour here than I would at any other company, so I would hate to quit, but it’s getting to point where I think it may be worth it..
How do I deal with it?
My friend and I are doing a hip hop duet in our recital this year and we don’t know what song to use. It has to be from a broadway show though since our theme is broadway.
I am 5’4 and 123 pounds. Can you help me determine what the average waist and hip sizes would be? I’m female and I hit puberty about two years ago. Fairly skinny.
I have done jazz dance before and the attire was pretty simple. However, I am just starting a hip-hop dance class and was wondering what to wear. I don’t want to show up looking like I have no idea what I’m doing. I have read a few website regarding what to wear. However, I want to hear some advice from actual dancers who take hip-hop classes.
One of my hips is higher than the other hip, which causes curvature of my spine. My joints hurt on the side where my hip is compressed. I feel quite a bit of pain, especially in the affected knee. My Primary Care Doctor made a referral for me to see a orthopedic doctor.
What is it about hip hop that made the media choose it as their music of choice to market and advertise to our youth? There are so many forms of music out there, but they continue to choose hip hop. Why?
My right hip has hurt for some time. It doesn’t hurt when I walk or run, or put weight on it, but it hurts quite a bit when I twist to the left for any reason. Could it be bursitis?

So what were your favorite releases this month?
I should note, I meant only vocal projects. I didn’t include instrumental projects on this list (if I did, there would be notable differences).
I have had pain and stiffness in one hip ever since I had my second child (2 years ago). Can anyone suggest any exercises or stretches to ease the pain and possibly strengthen that area?
My 88 year old Mom broke her hip last week and they had to replace most of it. She is in a physical therapy hospital to get moving around again. The only thing is that the incision keeps leaking quite a bit.
Has anyone else had this problem and how long did it last?
I want to get a hip piercing but before that i want to know about any potential health risks. Is there any ?
Getting my first tattoo tomorrow afternoon.
I know what im getting, and where; hip area

She’s playful as a puppy, gorgeous ,and loving (age 18 as am I ) That being said she’s going through life putting in the bare minimum effort and it freaks me out when i think of the long term. Her room looks like a hurricane hit it and the bathroom is no better with all her make up stuff everywhere.
She rarely gets out of her pajamas to put on regular clothes( the regular clothes are sometimes tarnished with food stains) Sometimes on the weekends, she won’t wake up until 4:30 and keep her pjs on and has what she calls a “lazy day”, where she insists I call in sick to work and watch movies all day with her. Sometimes she’ll wear the bottoms to school. School consists of her sleeping through class and skipping the homework, and getting a 40% on the homework ( school rule), the tests , she gets a 60 which is the lowest you can get on a test. , and she’s never had a job. Rather than make any food she just drives thru and buys salads. .I’m not a straight A+ student either, but I maintain Bs and low As. I’m not a neat freak but my room looks presentable. I love her and her hedonistic attitude but sometimes I wonder what it’d be like to date a more mature woman. Do i bother to talk to her And yes her parents made her this way. Do I talk to them?
His left hip pops with almost every step. He doesn’t limp or have trouble getting up however. And he’s very playful. For having such a bad hip he seems like he doesn’t care. If I hadn’t heard the popping, I never would’ve known to take him to the vet as it’s nearly unnoticable visually. He’s very young, not even a year old. Is it possible that his quality of life will stay this way, or is it inevitably going to get worse?
Can hip replacement be done on NHS? Is it successful? how long is the hospital stay? and how long will the replacement last?
I had a regular hip MRI that came back negative but i have SEVERE hip pain and the doctor wants to order an arthrogram…
Is the only difference with and without contrast?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Im trying to find a hip-hop song about getting on aboard a train and riding, possibly from the 90′s. Can you help me?
Obviously a hip replacement is too dangerous for her at her age and she would never survive it or walk again. Thank you.
Aside from breaking the hip, what bad injuries can a person get in their hip from falling off a horse?
I’m writing a story, and I want my character to have a bad hip injury that would lead to complications — possibly arthritis or something. Can anyone suggest something?
Thanks very much!
I’m not having a hip replacement but this is for my school biology homework!
So let me explain, Me and my 3 mates are entering a hip hop dancing competition in school and we have got the dance sorted its just the out-fits that we are stuck on. Any help here?
please please please HELP!
I have dysplasia in my hip and there is soft tissue damage. The plan is to have this procedure where they cut the hip socket in three places, put springs in and then let it heal. This increases the size of the socket (which is too small) and should prevent me from getting arthritis at about 25. I am 17 years old and i have been told the recovery will be about 6 months, but i am not entirely sure what that involves. I am desperate for information that does not come out of the mouth of a surgeon. Can anyone help?
What happens to the muscles that cross the hip when the pelvis is posteriorly or anteriorly tilted? How does this affect the low back? The hip?
Eleven years ago, I had a total hip replacement. I need to take 2,000 mg of Amoxicillin an hour before receiving dental treatment. How long is pre-medication required?
- I love hip hop and rap. I grew up with it. Now its hip hop is gone. And now these garbage so are called rappers are putting the head stone to it. We need real hip hop not bubble gun rap. Artist like Rick Ross, little wane and that that dumb Nicky menaj are killing it
At 51, my orthopedist says I am too young for a hip replacement but the pain with each step has become agonizing, and the limping has caused imflammation in my SI joint.The doctor suggests three physical therapy sessions a week but with a deductible of 40.00 each adding another 480.00 minimum to my monthly budget just isn’t in the cards. And- I have had some physical therapy with little or no results. Can anyone suggest anything?
I have tried a cane, but it seems that the cane doesn’t help the hip pain much, since so much of the pain has migrated to my right SI joint and my right leg seems to have torqued a bit inward. I have tried using the cane in both hands without a lot of success.
After watching step up 3D and a few videos people dancing hip hop, breakdance and ballet etc. I started to be in love with dancing. I used to take up latin dance wehn I was little. And hip hop to me is a big new thing for me.
I would love to know more about hip hop. Is it like normal dancing with new moves and not like breakdancing where you need to do stunts and all? And is 14 to old to start?
I’m considering adopting a saint bernard. The only thing is they told me he has hip hip dialysis. I’m just wondeing if this could be an expensive problem or if you have any information about it at all. Thanks
It’s not like a hip-hop dancer is going to wear prep or skater brands. Although they can. Just asking what they wear today and what brand.
I have recently had hip replacement surgery. I am wondering how many people out there have had this surgery, if your glad you did,
and how long it took to get your life back on track?
I had a hip replaced just over a week ago. I am experiencing muscle twitches in my neck, arms, hands and the leg and foot of the leg that has NOT had the replacement, and this is interferring with my sleep. (BTW These are not the same as the painful muscle spasms that I get on the operated hip leg.) Are these twitches normal? Do they go away? Will a body massage help to stop them? Thanks.

If someone had never heard any hip hop before and you had to try to explain it to them using only 5 albums, which ones would you choose? (and no adding extras, stick to just 5)
Explain your choices too if you can.
My left hip flexor has become very stiff over the past 3 days. I stretched it out today, it felt much better, and then i walked on the treadmill to keep the blood flowing in my legs. Now, I can barely walk. Please help, can somebody give me any ideas as to what I should do for this?
I know someone getting a hip replacement (one, maybe even both) due to a vascular necrosis. Will this permanently disable them, and in what way? I can’t seem to find anything via Google search.
So I just started taking hip hop dance for beginners last week, but I find it super hard to keep up. My dance instructor just does the moves without explaining them and she expects us to keep up and memorize them. I have pretty good memory, but sometimes the moves just don’t come out right. They look awkward and unnatural. How can I look like I am actually hip hip dancing and not just moving around awkwardly?
How true does an artificial hip replacement has a high-failure rate? I heard a lot of bad things happen with these hip replacement implant.
I have bilateral hip pain which is caused by certain movements. When I get the pain it lasts about 30 to 60 seconds and would be ranked a 10 out of 10. I also have a low grade fever of 99.0 to 99.5 most of the time. I have bilateral knee tenderness and hands hurt if grip something. I have been to the doctor and had x-rays and lab work. Am waiting for results. He mentioned arthritis or Avascular necrosis.
My boxer, Missy, has hip dysplasia and she has been hobbling after she had her puppies, but now she has started to urinate out of nowhere. its as if she can’t feel it or something. Is this a result of the hip dysplasia or should i look into other causes?

I had my hip replaced at 34 with a Stryker Ceramic on Ceramic hip. I’ve been very active since then and couldn’t be more pleased. My surgeon told me this hip could potentially last me the rest of my life and in the laboratory, they are unable to wear down the material. Does anyone know how long this will really last? I’m 38 now and quite active in terms of walking, hiking, etc. No running.

I’ve got 2 hip replacements and the metal detectors everyone has to go through to get in and out of the warehouse at work are overly sensitive. I can never make it through without setting it off and having to be wanded and its just really annoying that I have to cut my break and lunch short because of it. Is there anything I can do to prevent my hip replacements from setting off the metal detector?
I’m 34 and for the last year my hip joints have been sore after exercising. It’s been getting worse in the last month. I have weighed about 1 stone more than I used to during this last year but have been keeping up my regular level of exercise, which includes aerobics and disco-dancing on weekends, which involves a lot of jumping around.
Are my hips worn out?
What can I do to improve their condition?
Any supplements I can take?
Do I need to stop dancing so much/energetically?

So I’ve loved hip-hop since 90. I haven’t been listening to much in the last 2 years so I don’t know what’s really good that came out as of late. Can anyone recommend me albums so I can start rekindle my passion?
When performing a straight punch why do you think the hand comes back to the hip during basics, I am interested in other people’s theories and ideas on why this is done. Is it just to learn technique or does it always represent a grab and pull? Ides anyone?
A couple weeks ago, my sister and I watched Paranormal Activity 1. We were interested, so we watched all the others. Yesterday, I finished Paranormal Activity 4 with her. I thought it was pretty good, but I don’t understand the whole story behind the series. Can some one explain the plot so far or how the two sisters got possessed? (I know there is a fifth movie coming out, so it’s ok if you can’t really explain it yet.) thanks
I had total hip replacement with leg lengthening (about 2-3 in.) 6 weeks ago. I then had x rays and due to soft bones, I still can’t put full weight bearing on my right hip. I can only toe-touch and have to use a walker, until healing continues. Maybe another 6 weeks or longer? I am so disappointed that I have to sit or lay around for six more weeks. It’s so boring. I am 62 years old and had perthes leg disease, and the doctor said it was really bad. Anyone else had similar results?
I am curious, what is the difference between rap and hip hop? I have heard people saying they listen to hip hop music but that seems to be the same music as rap. What is the difference?
I have a question about a 6 month power struggle I’m having with my 11 year old son. My 11 year old is in 6th grade. At my 11 year olds son middle school and elementary they allow cell phones during times when the students aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher. Kids let other kids use their cell phones. 6 months ago, I discovered my son borrowed a cell phone to create a Facebook when he was 8. I confronted my son about this. He admitted to this. I even saw posts on other websites during school hours connected to his name and on his Facebook wall. I demanded his password. He wouldn’t give it to me. I explained to him why I wanted his password (predators, bullying) and his father showed him a Dr. Phil episode about a girl being raped by a man she met on a cellphone with internet and how cyber bullied kids committed suicide. I had him sit at the dinner table until he gave me his password. He sat there all day Saturday and Sunday. Then I tried other consequences such as taking away TV, computer and friend privileges and he still didn’t give me his password. I told the school not to let him borrow cell phones and he didn’t listen to them and they gave up after 2 months. They gave him lunch and after school detention and he took cell phones and didn’t give them up he was using them in detention the school tried to grab them from him and the school gave up after 2 months. A month ago his teacher was absent from one week because she was feeling sick. During that week, my son watched rated movies with friend’s cell phones. I know because he even told me what they are about. It has been 6 months already he still hasn’t given me his password. What should I do?
P.S. I was also thinking about homeschooling him because of this. Please give me advice on that?
He doesn’t use the internet in my home unless it’s for homework. Even if he did, he wouldn’t log onto facebook. I reported his account daily upon discovery and had friends report it, no luck.
The district said they cannot keep out cell phones so they “compromised” and allowed kids to use cell phones during times when they aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher in all their schools. Private and charter schools in my city do this too. My son will find a way to sneak in a cell phone and he already has done that they took away 5 cell phones away in 1 day from him but they put him under strict supervision but they said they can’t supervise him like that every day nor can they supervise him 100%.
He still lost his privileges since the day I took them away 6 months ago.
My 11 year old is in 6th grade. I am in a power struggle with my 11 year old. Here are some examples.
― At my 11 year olds son middle school and elementary they allow cell phones during times when the students aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher. Kids let other kids use their cell phones. 7 months ago, I discovered my son borrowed a cell phone to create a Facebook when he was 8. I confronted my son about this. He admitted to this. I even saw posts on other websites during school hours connected to his name and on his Facebook wall. I report his account daily and have multiple friends report his account daily since the day I discovered he had a Facebook, no luck. I also demanded his password. He wouldn’t give it to me. I explained to him why I wanted his password (predators, bullying) and his father showed him a Dr. Phil episode about a girl being raped by a man she met on a cellphone with internet and how cyber bullied kids committed suicide. I had him sit at the dinner table until he gave me his password. He sat there all day Saturday and Sunday. Then I tried other consequences such as taking away TV, computer and friend privileges and he still didn’t give me his password. I told the school not to let him borrow cell phones and he didn’t listen to them and they gave up after 3 months. They gave him lunch and after school detention and he took cell phones and didn’t give them up he was using them in detention the school tried to grab them from him and the school gave up after 2 months. A month ago his teacher was absent from one week because she was feeling sick. During that week, my son watched rated movies with friend’s cell phones. I know because he even told me what they are about. He doesn’t use the internet in my home unless it’s for homework. Even if he did, he wouldn’t log onto Facebook. I reported his account daily upon discovery and had friends report it, no luck. The district said they cannot keep out cell phones so they “compromised” and allowed kids to use cell phones during times when they aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher in all their schools. I switched schools 3 tines already private and charter schools also. My son will find a way to sneak in a cell phone and he already has done that they took away 5 cell phones away in 1 day from him but they put him under strict supervision but they said they can’t supervise him like that every day nor can they supervise him 100%. Every day when he comes home he just sits at the corner every day until he gives me his password and he sits there all day doesn’t watch TV, use computer or go to friend’s homes he just does his homework and on the weekends. This went on for 4 months and was at 7 months overall he still didn’t give me his password. Last week, he threatened to publish our names and address if I continue to bug him with his password and the next he posted our names and address and I got a phone call. He recited our address and said he was going to come and kill us. Then he threatened not to take his insulin (he’s diabetic) and he physically fought me (he’s stronger than both of us and no one can stronger can restrain him). I gave up the password battle because he missed insulin for a long time and then he took his insulin again.
― Last year he left school without waiting for me and went to a friend’s house without our permission. We did not approve of him playing rated M games (which he probably plays at school) and we grounded him for the weekend and we told him that friend can come over and play with our supervision. He went back there a second time and we grounded him again and took away his TV and computer privileges and he went back there 50 times and I couldn’t get in contact with his parents because they leave their son home alone and I don’t know their number. Each time he went back there was a consequence but he still went back there. We fought over a year about this. He is not considered a runaway because he has to spend the night away from home to be considered a runaway.
― We went to the cardiologist and kept breathing during the cardiogram and playing with the wires we had to redo it 8 times and I don’t want this to turn into a power struggle.
― His friends give him chocolate and he eats too much according to me and his doctor and I fought a week over this but stopped because I am very stressed out over these long power struggles.
I do talk to him in a low tone authoritative manner while making eye contact. That doesn’t help. What should I do?
Innervation of hip joint comes from branches of femoral nerve (nerves to rectus femoris and quadratus femoris), branch from obturator nerve’s anterior division, and articular twigs from sciatic nerve. Branches from these three major nerves (femoral, sciatic, obturator) nerves also supply knee joint. That’s why sometimes pain from knee may be referred to hip and vice versa.
My question is, which one is it? Is it femoral, sciatic or obturator nerve that gives the most supply (innervation) to hip joint?

I told the school not to let him borrow cell phones and he didn’t listen to them and they gave up after 3 months. They gave him lunch and after school detention and he took cell phones and didn’t give them up he was using them in detention the school tried to grab them from him and the school gave up after 2 months. A month ago his teacher was absent from one week because she was feeling sick. During that week, my son watched rated movies with friend’s cell phones. I know because he even told me what they are about. He doesn’t use the internet in my home unless it’s for homework. Even if he did, he wouldn’t log onto Facebook. The district said they cannot keep out cell phones so they “compromised” and allowed kids to use cell phones during times when they aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher in all their schools. I switched schools 3 times already private and charter schools also. My son will find a way to sneak in a cell phone and he already has done that they took away 5 cell phones away in 1 day from him but they put him under strict supervision but they said they can’t supervise him like that every day nor can they supervise him 100%. Every day when he comes home he just sits at the corner every day until he gives me his password and he sits there all day doesn’t watch TV, use computer or go to friend’s homes he just does his homework and on the weekends. This went on for 4 months and was at 7 months overall he still didn’t give me his password. I was told to seriously start taking away privileges and have a firm talking to him with a firm, authoritative voice while making eye contact. I did that before and it didn’t help and what else is there to take away? The parents in my area don’t care. My mother and the rest of my family knew he had a Facebook since the day he created one and all of them told him not to tell me. Everyone says I’m too strict and that all kids post these things these days. Last week, he threatened to publish our names and address if I continue to bug him with his password and the next he posted our names and address and I got a phone call. He recited our address and said he was going to come and kill us. Nothing happened. Should I homeschool him?
At my 11 year olds son middle school and elementary they allow cell phones during times when the students aren’t learning such as during lunch time or when there is a substitute teacher. Kids let other kids use their cell phones. 7 months ago, I discovered my son borrowed a cell phone to create a Facebook when he was 8. I confronted my son about this. He admitted to this. I even saw posts on other websites during school hours connected to his name and on his Facebook wall. He swears, posts pictures that I feel are inappropriate, lies about his age, talks to older girls on Facebook and other websites. I report his Facebook account daily and have multiple friends report his account daily since the day I discovered he had a Facebook, no luck. I also demanded his password. He wouldn’t give it to me. I explained to him why I wanted his password (predators, bullying) and his father showed him a Dr. Phil episode about a girl being raped by a man she met on a cellphone with internet and how cyber bullied kids committed suicide. I had him sit at the dinner table until he gave me his password. He sat there all day Saturday and Sunday. Then I tried other consequences such as taking away TV, computer and friend privileges and he still didn’t give me his password.

What are some of you favorites (doesn’t have to be any set number)?
My boss keeps getting onto my pants because of a recent crack down on leggings, and skinny jeans. However, my pants are actually skinny fit slacks and have no denim in them whatsoever! I proved this to her, by showing her the tag, and letting her feel them. However, she said that in order to have to avoid feeling my pants, either her or someone from upper management questioning them, that I should wear shirts long enough to cover the pockets on the back. WHAT? I only own 2 shirts that actually cover my butt, and where am I going to find a tunic for the summer in Texas? I am actually wondering if this could be a discriminatory issue, but at the moment I am more concerned about where I am going to find pants, in order to go to work. When I bought the pairs I have, I had the hardest time finding something to fit my frame. I have tried every store, and the only pants out there were the skinny pants. Dress slacks that I found, were still too big, even in the lowest size. A 00 at Anne Taylor Loft Petites, were still too large, and bowed out at the hip. I have even tried the children stores, and sections! Some will fit there, but end up too short around the ankle, and looked like I was highwatering, or they are embellished in girly stuff. I cannot afford to spend a fortune, and considering my profession as a hairstylist, getting color or lightener on them will be inevitable at some point. However, I do need pants that will last multiple washes, and still stay together. My budget range is up to $50. Please if anyone knows where I can find some dress pants, for my size I would appreciate it!
I am: 5 feet tall, weigh 100lbs. Athletic body type (no hips, straight waist). Stand all day, so no longer have a butt. 25 years old. Wear flats to work alot.
Boss’s requirements: No pockets on butt that look like they could be jean pockets (no outside pockets), no denim, no skinny pants (is what she is saying). Black, gray, or white.
I just realized I forgot this. Pants must not drag or touch the floor. No cargo pants, or carpenter style. Also, while I can wear heels, As a hairstylist I stand for almost 8 hours in one spot . Heels are not in my wardrobe any longer lol. I can hem though if I need to.
Ok here are my measurements. Waist- 25″ (I have a high waist, short torso) Hips- 32″ Thigh- 30.25″ all the way around Thigh circumference -17.5″
I would like to know if anyone knows why do i always have sharp hip pains on my left side whenever i sit on my bed. whether i am sitting on the edge or against the back board i always have pain that feels like it’s in the muscle on that one side that’s so bad it will hurt to walk. My dad tried putting some type of firm foam piece under my spread but that didn’t work. I went to the doctor and they took some X-rays and couldn’t find anything and of course it wasn’t hurting that day.
I am 14 years old n I love rap and hip-hop music but my parents hate it, they think that it’s “not suitable” for me but I have always listened to it. So my question for other parents is would you let your daughter or son listen to rap or hip-hop?
Oh and i’m not talking about christian rap or any thing like that. I’m just talking about the rap and hip-hop music that alot of people catigorize as “gangster music”.
