Hi ,

I want to negotiate a restitution against a big firm. I want a professional with "never say die " attitude to negotiate for me.
I have seen some firms on line but they only negotiate some joke cases like car , mortgage etc..
this is a case that they are about to lose and I need to slam them pretty hard.
Any ideas would be appreciated

from your perspective, can you write in laymen's terms what might be pros and cons of playstation4?

the parent is busy and less aware of latest IT usage trends. their child is 12 year old girl and they hear that it might be a good thing, but don't know much about it. (they don't have tv at home, just laptop).

if you list the pros and cons of playstation - unsupervised for a soon to be teen, what are the kinds of talks they should first have with their child, or what should they educate themselves or their child before giving them a sophisticated costly tool as that.

of course, from their perspective, if it is all innocent, they are ok for it.. by that what they mean is they don't want child to hear swear words or see violence, or learn latest (scanty) clothing styles from the video games.. the parents are only thinking (hoping) of 'educational' value that will help during summer break or weekends and so forth to aid more intellect and mental skill growth.

would appreciate your input from experience.

Dear experts,

Are there good online courses or DVDs available which will teach Violin and Flute (carnatic, south Indian) step by step.

Also suggest which violin is good for both Carnatic (south Indian) and western music.

I am absolutely new learner, with absolute no knowledge on music.

Thank you

Could someone clearly explain the ontological argument to me? I'm having difficulties understanding it despite the numerous times I've read and reread it.

Knowing how I feel about such matters, my brother rather amusingly bought me a 'crystal healing' set for my birthday. This set included a book. On the back of the book, the author describes herself as follows:

'... author of the bestselling Crystal Bible, ..., as well as numerous books on astrology, divination, past lives and related subjects.'

Now, when you think about it: astrology, crystal healing, past lives, etc, are completely disparate subjects. Of course, people like myself throw them all into one category since they are all hogwash, but what strikes me is that even those who *do* believe in this stuff *also* lump them together ('and related subjects'). Indeed, you'll have great difficulty finding a crystal healer who scoffs at astrology.

Question #1: What is it that attracts some people to this utter drivel? They make impossible demands from mainstream science and yet blindly accept anything that is notably unorthodox - and do so with such conviction. Why?! Are there any psychologists here?

As it happens, I was provoked into posting this topic after reading this thread by judico:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Other/Math_Science/Q_26928867.html
These maniacs pop up every now and then on here, and indeed I even come across their work on sites like arXiv.

Question #2: Do you believe their intent is genuine?

Question #3: Should we tolerate them? Or scorn them?

I have invited judico to provide us with some insider knowledge.


P.S. We can now …

Hi,
I having this question which I need some help answering.
the question is in regards to Socrates trial and him referring to himself as a gadfly
I am supposed to write an essay on based on this statement
"in apology Socrates refers to himself as a gadfly explain how this metaphor is considered to be characteristic of philosophy's relationship with our academic or intellectual pursuits."

My understanding is we should seek knowledge and question the subjects we study and learn from.
But I don't see any other point to write a complete essay about this topic. am I missing something here?

I'm in a discussion about materialism, with a person I truly dislike (he's a religious fanatic defending genocide etc.). Now, I don't have a clue on the subject, other than what I read on Wikipedia about "Materialism", so I need a good counterargument on his last comment :) (I've translated it):

"No materialistic mechanisms have ever been empirically proven. Materialism is a metaphysical stand. You mix it with empirical data, just what I critized. ... ...  your own naturalistic world view rest on premises and assumptions that can NEVER ben scientifically verified."

What should I answer? I don't care about right and wrong etc (I'm happy with my own personal world view), I just want to look good in the discussion :)

opk , i study aerospace engineering and i have been wondering about this stuff...that exist on the internet.

First of all , non of the footage is clear. ALL of them are just some shadows , some objects , or dots moving around that there is NO WAY you could ever tell what this object is....
None of the astronauts came out , ever , to say , or to describe a UFO , meaning an allien spacecraft.  Only some strange dudes come out and claim to have been abducted and so forth.
I believe this is all junk , and of course a good source for writing books and making money...kind like the 2012 deal... People are mesmerized by the unknown , drama , wars , ufo's , end of world...they need something to forget the financial crisis..

Thoughts ?

I've found out about the "Urantia Book". It's a religious document that seems related to Christianity and has a science fiction like overtone.

You can find it here.

What I'm trying to find out is, why is this eccentric looking text a bunch of hooey?

Do you actually think there is some kind of merit to this book and why?

Remember to back up any answers.

Usually in mathematics you are told you can't divide by zero, but there are various examples of mathematical branches that change normal mathematical assumptions - such as non-euclidean geometry, or imaginary numbers.

I wondered if there are any branches of mathematics that removes the assumption that you can't divide by zero to see if it is possible to get something meaningful out?

I wanted to know if there are any good AUDIO books on enunciation exercises/classes?  I have a bit of prolems with enunciation and since I'm on the road most of the time, I would prefer an audio lesson/class.

Is there a point limit on questions in P&R?
Does this also apply to questions cross-posted from other zones?

Where is this described on the EE website?  

I am going to try to make this a 500 point question and cross post to another
zone as a test.

=======================================================

Actually running an experiment can provide valuable information.

The EE website forced me to lower the points to 50 before submission.

I would still like to find where this is described on the site.
