Is there a connection between your Dinner Plate and Global Warming?
Ever since "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore has been the darling of environmentalists, but that movie hardly endeared him to the animal rights folks. According to them, the most inconvenient truth of all is that raising animals for meat contributes more to global warming than all the sport utility vehicles combined.
In late November, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization issued a report stating that the livestock business generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined.
On its Web page and in its literature, the Humane Society has also been highlighting other scientific studies -- notably, one that recently came out of the University of Chicago -- that, in essence, show that "switching to a plant-based diet does more to curb global warming than switching from an S.U.V. to a Camry," said Paul Shapiro, senior director of the factory farming campaign for the Humane Society.
At least I am here, unlike shilo9i, to inform and *raise* the level of thinking.
The only sensible answer appears to be from Permaculture byderule. Most other answers are hogwash. Apologies to all creatures called hogs.
Answer: Thanks for the update...now do you have a question you want answered, or are you here simply because nobody will listen to you face to face? This site is not here for you to raise awareness...it is here to ask and answer questions. Go to a chat room if you want to chat.

What is the name of the person in Angel (tv series) that is Angels connection to the senior partners?
She helps Angel get more details about things. Also who plays the character that tells Wesley to steal Connor and then slits Wesleys throat?

How can a 60 year old single lady find a room to rent?
Checked Craigslist and for 1 week, there is not a match. Called Senior Connections and was told they do not help people find places to live. Have been checking newspaper too. What else can I do now? Live in VA.
Answer: If you attend a church or belong to some kind of a club then someone there may have a room to rent or know of something. You could also put an ad in the classifieds in the local paper. Referrals are always safer and better but sometimes you have to try anything. Often in a university setting there are bulletin boards listing rooms for rent or people looking for roommates. Age shouldn't be a factor as long as you can pay your share.

High School Senior + Senior Citizen Connection!?!?!?
I mean, I have always been called a senior and I feel a real connection with senior citizens and we both face the same struggles in todays society.
@ E.M I agree 100%, in my family I was taught to respect elders very well. My grandfather(dads father) is my last remaining grandparent and I and all my cousins cherish him, I speak to him at least once a week and he lives right near me, so I could either take the subway or bus to visit him(I live in Staten Island NYC). As for what you said, I agree 100%, but it is due mainly to how theyre raised. Seems most of my family raised their kids and my cousins very well, all 7 of us on my fathers side deeply respect and respected my grandpa and grandma. When I was graduating HS, I volunteered in a nursing home. I actually think gaining knowledge, experience and wisdom from seniors is a MUST. To many kids my age, disregard this, although there are many like me and who still do this.
You can learn a lot from seniors and how it was back then and thats a GREAT thing. It helped me a lot. I am thankful for it.
Answer: You are so right about our mutual struggles. Look to the future, not to the past. We'll help you as long as we can. When we're gone, remember us -- and extend your hand of friendship to the young ones coming up after you. God bless!

Answer: One of my good friends was on Trading Spaces. The way she got on was by standing out amongst everyone else. She and her husband were hysterical in their application tape. You have to first get their attention and then make them look at your story/personality and say..."We have to have this person!" Spice up the story you just told here. Be a "character" , flamboyant, etc.... and humor is a MUST! Shows like Clean Sweep, etc. are about home improvement but are also try to be entertaining. Show them that you can be a great entertainer. Talk about any "feuds" you and your partner have over your clutter. Talk about the mess. Say things like you've lost a shoe and haven't seen it in over a year or you've lost your mate in the mess....something extravagant like that. You hit a lot of key notes in this story...just add a little more and really really really spice it up and make it funny...that is the key! Oh and don't just apply for one show, apply for them all. I have a feeling that you can get on one of the shows if you take my advice. You seem to have the personality they are looking for. Good Luck!!! Oh, and if they don't call you right away...don't give up. Contact them once a week and tell them that your mess is reproducing and taking on a life-form all it's own and if they don't come soon.................(think of something bizarre)

Answer: Yes, I hit refresh and it goes through!!!

Is there any connection between weight loss and age,metabolism,gender?
im a senior in high school and my senior project is over getting fit. i have to write a reserch paper and part of my paper has to do with the connection between weight loss and age, metabolism, and gender. if you get any information off of the internet i need you to include the website name with your answer. any answers would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
Answer: Yes, there is a connection between all four factors. First of all, in general terms, men usually have higher basal metabolic rates than women, mainly due to the higher percentage of muscle mass in their bodies. That means that at rest they burn off more calories per day than women do, even if they have similar heights and weights, and similarly active lifestyles. Also, people tend to have a higher metabolism when they are younger. A 20 year old women will burn off many more calories than a 50 year old woman per day, in general. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, because there is always variation and there are also sometimes genetic influences and anomalies. Based on all that, its reasonable to assume that a younger man will have a faster metabolism than an older woman, and therefore is likely to lose weight more quickly if the two were given the same diet plan and exercise routine.

Whats better: 2006 or 2007 Easton connexion senior league baseball bat?
Im trying to figure the difference between the 2006 easton connexion baseball bat and the 2007 easton connexion baseball bat. Is there a 2008 connexion coming out? If so, when? Or is there a different connexion baseball bat thats better than the 2006 and 2007?

The Easton baseball bat is designed with an extended barrel for maximum hitting area and Opti-Flex. Composite handle technology for enhanced handle flex. Streamlined ConneXion. Hope it helps.
What is the connection between football and gladiators?
My teacher said I should write about football (American Football) and gladiators as my senior project since I love sports. I watched Any Given Sunday recently and they showed clips of gladiators in the one scene. However besides this reference I have had a rough time finding any more connections. Can somebody please give me a link with the two being compared or a book/movie i can read/watch? Thanks!
Answer: Fighting physically, violence, defending a territory (gladiator:kingdom, football: endzone). It involves strategy and rankings (team captain, veteran, starter, backup, benchy). They all involve some sort of owner/king/dictator who isn't involved in the actual fight.

A connection between Existentialism and Technology?
Im doing my senior project essay, and I decided to make my essay about existentialism and technology. I cant talk about two different things in the same essay, therefore I need help thinking about a connection between the two because they both seem to be different.
Existentialism-A pessimistic take on existence
Technology- An optimistic take that tries to find meaning in ourselves and everything around us.
Answer: Science (technology) gave birth to existentialism. Your proposed topic is like comparing oranges to tangerines. You need to have "technology" to read "science" in your topic then you have them both on the same philosophical footing and redefines one definition. Science pushed the boundaries of human knowledge of the physical universe to where they realized that whatever we do, it will be for nothing because one day our universe will end. Science has also called into question the apparent solidity of matter which constitutes the visible portion of our universe. It has revealed the limitations of our senses and our mind.
