  • Answer: Many people do not believe in love at first sight, whereas others think that love is only "real" if it IS "at first sight". As someone who falls in the twilight realm between these two. I was shocked when I felt an instant and powerful attraction to the person who eventually became my spouse.

    I did not believe in "love at first sight". I thought it was silly and overly romantic. Yet it happened to me at the age of 35! Can I explain it? I cannot, at least nont scientifically. Perhaps it was pheromones. But we were at a distance of roughly 25 yards. Was it looks? No. The sun blocked my view and I had NO idea what my true love looked like, despite my open admission that looks matter to me.

    Was it personality? For me, it was not, since I felt "that sense" even before either of us spoke.

    The only plausible explanation, for me, is that we knew each other in a past life. Before you dismiss this, consider the following:

    If human thought and emotion is made of energy, then where does it go after death? Some would say "to heaven", but there is no proof. Some say it evaporates into nothingness. Again, they have no proof.

    I say, that the principle of conservation of energy ALSO applies to human thought! I think there is no reason why though cannot "live" on, intact in some form, and capable of recognizing other "thought entities" (or "souls", if you prefer) long after the body is gone.

    Of course I have no proof, but how else do you explain such a phenomenon? People might reply: "Once they though dragons existed, too" and I would say that people simply misinterpreted fossil evidence of dinosaurs!

    At any rate, it is a question that, for now, cannot be quantified. All reports will be circumstantial until we can measure and analyze human thought in scientific terms, both pre- and postmortem.

    Until then, love at first sight is quite amazing! I wish that everyone could experience it.
  • Answer: The Tango 3P Open Fit is for moderate to moderately severe hearing loss, but not for severe. I think the best price on it is at http://www.perfecthearingaids.com
  • Answer: The answer to this question includes a number of complex variables. The following is a thumbnail sketch of the variables.

    A hearing loss means that at any given frequency (think pitch, like a note on the piano) you need more sound pressure (think volume) than someone with good hearing. You require a louder sound before the inner ear can send a noticeable signal to the brain.Audiometric Scale. The numbers you provided, 72 dB to 90 db, are numbers from an audiogram. The audiogram is a graph or chart that records your response to sound presented to the ear. This sound is presented in frequencies (notes) typically starting at 500 Hz. You are then tested in the following frequencies 1K, 2K, 3K, 4K and 6K. That is a basic sequence often followed. A more thorough test will start at 125 Hz and go all the way to 8K, testing each octave and some ½ octaves along the way. Zero on this scale is not an absolute number; it does not mean there is no sound being presented. It is a number derived from an average of many thousands of tests. It is the softest level at which someone with perfectly good hearing can hear a given frequency. If your hearing level is higher than zero, say 10 dB, 40 dB, 70 dB, then, this is the additional amount of energy your ear needs to hear a sound. It is the additional amount over someone with very good hearing. The audiometric scale ranges from -15 dB to about 140 dB, the point at which your ears are likely to start bleeding. Anything above 85-90 dB, over a given period can be harmful to your hearing. The louder the sound the lower the time exposure before damage occurs.Frequency Trivia. 250 Hz is approximately middle "C" on the piano. 4K is the high note on the piano. 29 Hz is the low note.The audiometric scale does not tell you how much speech understanding you have. It only tells you the sound pressure level needed in order for you ear to send a signal to the brain. The brain needs more energy and much more information than that to understand speech. The audiogram only gives us a general idea of how difficult it is for a person to hear a sound. Included in this series of the tests we also conduct "Bone Conduction" tests and frequency specific LDLs. (tonal loudness discomfort levels).SRT, Speech Reception Threshold.This is the first in a series of speech tests that we give to help determine the answer to the question "how much am I hearing". When someone asks, "how much hearing do I have?" They typically are wonder how much of the conversation are they getting, or missing? The SRT gives us the level at which sound is loud enough for you to begin understanding words. A typical SRT for someone with excellent hearing is as low as 5 dB. A typical SRT for anyone over the age of 40 is about 15-25. An SRT range that we would normally expect to see for someone with a 70 dB to 90 dB loss will run from 70 to 105. That is a wide range because it is dependent of the actual damage present in the cochlea (inner ear). The SRT range depends on more than just the SPL presented. Speech understand also depends on more than just the SPL (sound pressure level, think "volume"). Speech understanding depends on the coordinated function of thousands (approx 30,000) of nerve endings we call hair cells, in the inner ear. Of course it also depends on the entire nerve path and the respective brain areas. But in the vast majority of hearing losses (say 90%) the problem is in the inner ear. The speech reception testing sequence also includes tests for the MCL (most comfortable level) and the LDL or UCL (loudness discomfort or Uncomfortable levels)The next phase of testing will more directly assess your speech understanding. This portion of the testing sequence includes the tests we call "Discrimination testing". It also includes "Speech In Noise" testing and "Master Hearing Aid" testing.In summary the 70 to 90 dB loss provides only a small glimpse of a persons hearing function. With those two numbers, I do not know which frequencies were tested. For instance if this loss occurs at 6k Hz and 8k Hz (a common occurrence) the patient being tested might show 80% or better speech understanding. On the other hand if the loss is a flat loss starting at 70 dB (at 250 Hz) and declining to 90 dB (at 6k Hz) then the persons speech understanding could be 30% or lower. Of course speech understanding cannot be derived from the audiogram. It requires actual speech discrimination testing. True I can make a fairly educated and experienced guess, but a wide range of answers is possible.
  • Answer:
    A hearing aid will not accelerate your hearing loss or improve the underlying condition. You hearing loss could progress due to age, genetics, noise or medications but not the hearing aid.
    Ok but does using an aid have any effect on further loss in other words if not using an aid does a condition deteriorate quicker than if wearing one?
  • Answer: Yes. It will give them better hearing. (But, speak a touch louder)


    The most common type of hearing loss is nerve loss or sensorineural loss. Hearing aids are usually the best method for treating this type of loss and can significantly improve hearing abilities.
  • Answer: It depends: If there was only trauma, as in built up pressure when the ear was hit, then the eardrum was injured, and that may be temporary. If there was fluid coming out of the ear at the time, then the eardrum was ruptured and this may cause permanent hearing loss. There may be an operation to fix this, but only the doctor will be able to say for sure.
  • Answer: You can request it, but your request will most likely be denied. The other party must be served with the contempt action and must be given ample opportunity to review and to prepare to respond before any hearing.
  • Answer: depends how much skin, but typically no creams or voodoo will help. sources indicate that infra red treatment can help tighten skin, but its over a few months. but it really depends on how much skin. go see a doc.
  • Answer: Cooling system is leaking and the engine is getting hot. Hot engines burn the fuel before it can ignite and you lose power.
  • Answer: i guess it just reallys depends.
    you might just have to call the doctor to see
    whats going with the insurance and stuff.
  • Answer: No meat,no candy,no dairy or ale.Go on a vegetarian diet.
    It will take about a month or more with out exercise!
  • Answer: When you lose your strength all of a sudden, you collapse andsuffer some dizziness.
  • Answer: Exercise at least 30 min a day and cut back about 200 calories or depending on your weight cut back a little more. This is the healthiest way to loose weight because one pills are very unhealthy they are not approved by fda and once you get off the pill a majority of the people gain all the more then they usually weighed

What would you rather lose your hearing or your sight?

  • That would be a very unpleasant choice to have to make, but I believe that it would be easier to live without hearing than without sight.
