My Double Life in Therapy

As the cab pulled up to the mirrored building on 59thStreet and 6thAvenue, I slipped a diamond platinum ring onto my finger and sighed, promising myself this would be the last time. My therapist and I had a standing appointment for the past six months, Friday morning at 7:30, and I had made the same promise every week. But today was the day I would fire my therapist, because I was tired of pretending to be so many things I was not -- a divorcée who was happily married, for instance.Lawrence opened the door to his office, wearing a bright turquoise turtleneck.I can’t do it. It’ll ruin him,I decided, before I even entered the room. “That shirt looks great on you,” I told him.“Well, you said I should wear more blue, so …” I wish there was a more masculine word fortwirlbut there isn’t, and it is exactly what he did. Like a little girl showing off her princess costume to a roomful of doting grandparents, he twirled.Lawrence was just out of college and hardly in his second year of practice. He was gentle and excited, genuinely a sweet man. I don't know that he would have called me out on my lying, even if he had caught on. He wanted me to believe he was professional, a brilliant and accomplished therapist. It’s as if we were both pretending to be something we weren't.He adored me, and I adored him right back. He once described me as a “classic, chic New York woman” to a colleague. The reality is that I have colored many loads of laundry pink and I have no idea how to tie a scarf. But in his office, I was sophisticated; I wore black leather pumps that cost only slightly more than my rent (giving a whole new meaning to the woman who lives in a shoe). My naturally nasally tone became a purr. I traded my normal text-message speak for a lexicon that showed off my post-baccalaureate education and I occasional threw in some French. The version of me who sat across from Lawrence was highly successful, strong and feisty. She climbed mountains (literally and metaphorically), and had strong relationships with her family, friends and especially her husband. She only saw a therapist to keep a shopping obsession in check and because it’s New York; you are required to have a metro card and access to therapy at all times. In short, she was the woman I always wanted to be.It was on our first visit when Lawrence asked me, “So tell me who you are, tell me about Jessica.” He spoke in a soft voice, in an otherwise silent room. Silence is hard to find in New York; silence is terrifyingin New York.Well, I’m totally unsuccessful, and I make coffee and send emails on behalf of highly successful men, spending my days wondering where my ambition went and counting down seconds until this city chews me up and spits me out. I don’t climb mountains. In fact, I haven’t stepped foot inside a gym since George W. was reelected. My family does not discuss the divorce my parents got 34 years into their marriage. Oh, and the gorgeous ring weighing down my left hand – that was a parting gift from my ex-husband.But that is not what I said. Instead I began carefully, “I grew up in South Florida with two older brothers. I was home-schooled until we moved to North Carolina when I was 14. I met my first boyfriend straight out of high school and we got married before I graduated from college.” I was about to say more when Lawrence interrupted.“I just adore high school sweetheart love stories, especially when they last!” He spoke in a pitch too high, even for him. He cleared his throat and continued, “My parents and grandparents both met their true love in high school. How did you meet your husband” Lawrence thrust his hands under his thighs and leaned forward.This is the part where the sane, normal functioning part of my brain corrects the error with a simple statement.Oh no, we are actually divorced.Five simple words could have remedied the situation. Four words really, if time was of the essence.But no, I think a big part of me was too tempted by the idea that I could be free of all my past problems. I’ve never been much of an actress, but in that moment I decided that playing the role of normal and sane would be much easier than actually becoming normal or sane. And when I saw the grin on his face and the anticipation sparkling in his eyes, I couldn’t help myself. I kept going.“We met on a blind date, set up through a mutual friend.” I began to tell him every detail of our falling in love over the summer. How he bought me a kitten for my 18thbirthday (which I sold online because I find cats both lazy and hateful). I indulged him with the story of our first kiss, the first utterance of “I love you,” the marriage proposal soon after my 19thbirthday.We lasted 18 months -- 18 incredibly, unbearably long months. Our final days of living together consisted of a makeshift divider in our home office using a bed sheet and thumbtacks. But when Lawrence asked how long we’d been together, I too easily lied and told him three years. And that first meeting ignited the row of firecracker falsehoods that would follow. Before I knew it, I washer-- and I was stuck.The reality is this: Only a crazy person lies to their therapist, right But it went on like this for six months – me telling stories, Lawrence responding with doe-eyed amazement. I figured I must have temporarily lost my mind, and unexpectedly, the very person I hired to ensure that didn’t happen was now encouraging this behavior, spoon feeding it with his positive responses. And so there was no choice. I had to give him the boot.I’d never fired anyone before. I thought about posting a sticky note on his door: “You’re fired! Love, Jess.” But I knew he deserved more than that. Should I just tell him the truthBut I couldn’t allow myself to tell Lawrence how damaged I truly was -- that I stole from Wal-Mart too frequently to use the word “occasionally,” that the number of men I slept with whose names I didn’t remember far outweighed the number of men I slept with whose names I did. I couldn’t bring myself to tell him about the miscarriage I was partly relieved about or that while my body looked nice from the outside, it was slowly failing me each time I saw my doctor. I couldn’t bear to let him look at me with sad eyes, insisting that it was against his moral judgment to treat a patient who once returned an adopted cat to the shelter in a duffel bag (calm down, it was alive – I just hadn’t bought a carrier yet). He would be firing me, releasing me back into the wild like an exotic pet, one who can never be tamed, never helped.But this could not continue. I was exhausted. And so that afternoon, my alter ego and I joined forces and found the courage to come clean.“Lawrence, ” I began. I cleared my throat. “Ican’tseeyouanymore,” I mumbled angrily as I stared at the floor, like a child who is forced to apologize to his sister for throwing knives at her while his mom was at work. (Yes, that was my childhood.)“Excuse me, I didn’t hear that,” he said, scooting his chair forward.“I said I can’t … seeyouanymore.” I slurred.“Jess” Lawrence asked, so innocently, so unaware.“This is our last session, Lawrence.” I said loudly and clearly this time.“Can I ask why Did I do something” he asked, genuinely hurt.Maybe I didn’t have to end things. Maybe there was some other way. Lawrence was such a great listener, so zealous and encouraging to my made-up persona. How could I just let him go as if our time together had meant nothing It was going to be so hard to replace him. Finding a therapist as lovely as Lawrence wasn’t as simple as I’d hoped. I went through a racist, a sexist and a Baptist before I found him. It was awful auditioning therapists week after week but the first time I left Lawrence’s office, I felt so happy, so light, so … unlike myself. The problem was that I dug a grave of lies deeper and deeper every week, and I was now drowning in details I couldn’t remember. I had to end it.“Lawrence, you’ve been absolutely wonderful. It’s not you, it’s me ... I am not …”who you think I am who you think I am who you think I am, repeating the words in my head, hoping my mouth would follow suit. But it didn’t. “I’m not going to be living here anymore.”“Oh" He asked, caught off guard.“I’m moving.” My eyes darted away, searching for a way to remedy this tailspin.“What Where” he asked, surprised.It was a good question. I stared down toward the floor as I searched for a location in my mind. Iraq No, too angry. Greece Too hairy. France Yes, France.“To Paris, actually. I’m moving to Paris.”“I didn’t know you were thinking about that,” Lawrence said.“Well, I have always wanted to live in France and I figure if not now, when, right”For someone who was about to lose his favorite patient, Lawrence seemed surprisingly supportive, giddy even. He grabbed his notepad and came to sit on the couch beside me, demanding that we make a list:What I hope to find, what I am leaving behind.That was so Lawrence, to write in rhyme during therapy. For the next hour he pushed me to look inside of myself, to seek my strength and find my truth.Seriously This was the advice that people pay for Then again, who am I to judge I was the one paying someone to let me live in denial one day a week.Watching him add each bullet to the page, I realized that there was too much about myreallife that I was unsatisfied with. But was I dissatisfied enough to actually walk away from it and start over As we finished off the hope to find column, my heart began to beat faster and my mind, against my will, flashed images of what my future life could potentially look like. What if it was necessary that I start over in order to create, honestly, this version of myself that I was proud of That I no longer had to pretend to be What would it take for me to actually becomeherWith a double kiss goodbye, I left his office for the last time. Something in me had shifted; I floated down the street, feeling utter satisfaction knowing that my life could change.I was in love already with this idea, this possibility of an exciting future. I had to lock in this feeling immediately before I had time to think the whole thing through. My pace doubled as I walked along 47thStreet in the diamond district, waiting for the first jewelry dealer to invite me in. I took off my glove and twisted the ring off of my finger.“How much do you want for this” a pair of thin lips hiding behind a curly beard asked me.“Enough to change my life.” I smiled back. “But no less than $3,500,” I said, just to be clear.While it wasn’t the $3,500 I was expecting, it was enough to book a flight on Air France and leave a deposit for an apartment rental in Marais. How is that for locking in a feeling This is where my seedling of a white lie became the sprout of a terrible, terribly wonderful idea and bloomed into the ludicrous reality of starting over, from scratch, in French. After six months of therapy, I was ready to change my life; perhaps Lawrence was a brilliant therapist after all.

Therapy takes time and paticence on both his and your behalf. I agree with the poster above who asked if his hearing had been tested. I strongly suggest you get that done. Try music and singing very simple songs to him and with him. My 6 year old has Downs Syndrome, and his speech was sevearly delayed due to a range of factors, but music and as odd as this sounds, especially country music, has been a God send. He loves the "Swing" song by Trace Adkins, and he started trying to sing along with it. I saw his speech go from simple grunts and pointing, to him saying complete sentences and even telling jokes. If your child sees you getting frustrated, he is going to feel anxious and tense and more prone to tantrums, so you have to keep a sense of humor and make it fun to him to work on his speech. He will progress, but at his own pace, and pushing too hard can cause a backlash and a regression of any progress. Good luck to you, and if you ever need to talk, shoot me a line and Ill help where I can.1. What are the steps from the sensory nerve to the muscle contraction?A bit more detail on the latter stages - mention ATP. 1.A nervous impulse arrives at the neuromuscular junction, which causes a release of a chemical called Acetylcholine. The presence of Acetylcholine causes the depolarisation of the motor end plate which travels throughout the muscle by the transverse tubules, causing Calcium (Ca) to be released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. 2.In the presence of high concentrations of Ca, the Ca binds to Troponin, changing its shape and so moving Tropomyosin from the active site of the Actin. The Myosin filaments can now attach to the Actin, forming a cross-bridge. 3.The breakdown of ATP releases energy which enables the Myosin to pull the Actin filaments inwards and so shortening the muscle. This occurs along the entire length of every myofibril in the muscle cell. 4.The Myosin detaches from the Actin and the cross-bridge is broken when an ATP molecule binds to the Myosin head. When the ATP is then broken down the Myosin head can again attach to an Actin binding site further along the Actin filament and repeat the 'power stroke'. This repeated pulling of the Actin over the myosin is often known as the ratchet mechanism. 5.This process of muscular contraction can last for as long as there is adequate ATP and Ca stores. Once the impulse stops the Ca is pumped back to the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum and the Actin returns to its resting position causing the muscle to lengthen and relax.2. Characterizing a sentient robot: sensory dataI suggest this long answer of mine (90 votes) on a similar topic; it will define some of the terms you are using.A "sentient" or self-aware being (machine or biological) will have an internal model of itself in the world, and be able to model (or simulate) with relative success how its own actions will cause changes in the world.Most sentient beings would realize that using RGB codes with a human is pointless, their internal model of humans (necessary for them to work properly) will know that humans do not distinguish colors, weights, distances, etc with any precision. So it is not realistic for them to use these when talking with humans.Edit: I should point out; "self-awareness" does not imply "emotional". We have self-aware robots already; self-driving cars and other robots that navigate a natural environment, or that need to be careful not to bump into or hit people or things. It only implies an ability to represent itself as the one object it can control in an environment of other (fixed or moving) objects it cannot: It is aware of itself.Also, as a professional artist once informed me, nothing is ever one color. Even on a clear summer day, the sky is not "blue", it is fifteen shades of blue, and my shirt is not red, it is at least five shades of red depending on lighting, shadows, folds and wrinkles. So even the robot would know that the yellow dress is NOT #EEFEEF, but is a whole spectrum of colors, and predominately or on average what a human would term "yellow." In order to be effective, that would be built into its AI, it would not constantly say things the humans cannot understand and be confused by their confusion.That said, robot to robot, they might be precise and say "walk five thousand, nine hundred and eighty three feet. "Also, if a human requests it, they might report the exact value of their sensors, for sound-level, air pressure, temperature, humidity, distance (or distance walked), weight, altitude, compass direction, etc. Just like I might check my GPS coordinates on my iPhone.Personally I think this kind of commentary would be tiring for the reader. It might be fun a few times for a curious human to ask this sort of thing, I can only imagine a 2-3 year old's endless "why" questions posed to an encyclopedic and willing care-giver robot. Of course the robot is not an endless fount, either, eventually like a human it would have to admit it does not know how it knows something, or would have to cite a resource it believes is true. But the chain would be longer, and it might be entertaining if you pick the right starting question.3. If we took someone from the 18th century and dropped them into our time, what would be their sensory experience and thoughts regarding our world today?They would be mortified at everything they see. They would think of us as all being royalty with our massive houses (the average bathroom today was the size of the average house 250 years ago) along with our food and mechanized chariots (cars of course)

Blindfold yourself for a few hours.Unless you are suffering from a neurological condition, you've still got four senses, hearing being pretty key among them.After a few minutes of not having sight, you will start using hearing a little more and a little better. You will probably use touch for spatial awareness. Your brain, without sight to rely on, will start to cling to hearing and touch since they are useful for knowing your surroundings and navigating.Notice that even if you did not have smell and taste, you still have two senses coming in loud and clear...that you would not have in a sensory deprivation situation1. What are some defining characteristics that are OBJECTIVE for sensory deprivation in a nursing care plan?Sensory deprivation or perceptual isolation is the deliberate reduction or removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses. Simple devices such as blindfolds or hoods and earmuffs can cut off sight and hearing respectively, while more complex devices can also cut off the sense of smell, touch, taste, thermoception (heat-sense), and 'gravity'. Sensory deprivation has been used in various alternative medicines and in psychological experiments (e.g., see isolation tank). Short-term sessions of sensory deprivation are described as relaxing and conducive to meditation; however, extended or forced sensory deprivation can result in extreme anxiety, hallucinations, bizarre thoughts, and depression. A related phenomenon is perceptual deprivation, also called the ganzfeld effect. In this case a constant uniform stimuli is used instead of attempting to remove the stimuli, this leads to effects which has similarities to sensory deprivation2. Does anyone know some good activities for kids with Sensory Intergration Disorder?Try a book called The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun. I work in a special education school where the majority of children have sensory integration disorders. The Occupational therapists in my program use this book and it has a variety of fun activities for children with this disorder. Good luck!.3. Does my son have sensory issues?Well, as far as I can tell, 'sensory issues' would mean hearing or vision difficulties, not something like ADHD or Asperger's or whatever the over-diagnosed disorder of the month might be. So, definitely get him tested - if he does have an auditory or visual deficiency, it will be far better for him if it's discovered now through proper testing than if he winds up being diagnosed with a 'learning disability' down the road just because he can not hear the teacher properly or something like that. My seven-year-old cousin was considered 'learning disabled' and was put into speech therapy and everything until she was about four, when her parents suddenly discovered that she had a hearing deficiency so she could not hear higher frequencies, including things like higher-pitched voices (like a female teacher or other children in her class). She got hearing aids, and all the problems disappeared like magic, and now they've discovered that she's in fact an exceptionally bright little girl. So, the moral of the story is go for the testing, if something's wrong it will explain things and you can help him compensate for any issues starting young, and if nothing's wrong you will have the reassurance that your pediatrician was right and he is indeed developing just fine4. Sensory room for autistic child.?I think i saw an indoor trampoline with a handle in the Target AD that came out today. Not sure if thats what you are looking for5. Toddler with sensory issues. Please help?She was diagnosed with a brain tumor that she probably had for a very long time. 6 months ago, it was removed and all sensory issues dissapeared! Who knew?6. How can I test for a faulty O2 sensory after I checked my engine light?O2 sensors can CLOG Up with carbon and stop working! The NUMBER ONE reason for this is a DIRTY IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE! Take $20 to the local oil change center and get your THROTTLE BODY and IAC valve CELANED UP to showroom conditions. THe O2 sensors will many times start to WORK Again! Run GUMOUT SPRAY through the PCV VALVE> GOOD LUCK!!7. How can I get treatment for MUSES syndrome due to carbon monoxide poisoning 7 years ago when I can't get my doctors to believe my symptoms are due to me being poisoned? (MUSES=MUlti-SEnsory Sensitivity)By treating yourself! Doctors are not needed except to advise for or against what you can do safely by yourself in first-aid DIY fashion for free without them -- and without any need for hospitals or insurers or med equipment suppliers or pharmacies etc etc.To get CO out of your body, you canMetabolize more per hour to co2 (cant help you with this one)Exhale more per hour, free fraction only, by wearing partial rebreather mask (full disclosure, patent pending)Exude via skin while sunbathing, again free fraction onlyOr fastest and most effective,Excrete via blood (donate to red cross if they will take it or get wet cupping done on your back by TCM or Islamic doctor), which lowers both free and bound (COHb) fraction that is too large to exhaleHow can I get treatment for MUSES syndrome due to carbon monoxide poisoning 7 years ago when I can not get my doctors to believe my symptoms are due to me being poisoned?

How to Fix a Torn Bed Sheet
How to Fix a Torn Bed Sheet
Sharp objects and rough handling can tear even new bed sheets. If your sheet has a rip, do not replace the whole set. Mend it. A sewing machine that sews a zigzag stitch makes a smooth even repair. It is extremely difficult to hand sew a seam that is smooth enough to make an acceptable repair on a sheet and repair tape is rough and quickly begins to pull away from the fabric, making the problem even worse. Most tears in sheets are "L" shaped. Pull the torn edges of the sheet as close together as possible and hold them temporarily with a piece of clear gift wrap tape. The edges should touch, but do not pull them so close that they make a fold in the fabric at the edges of the rip. Set the sewing machine to sew as wide a zigzag stitch as possible with a short stitch length. On a zigzag stitch, the stitch length determines the angle between the stitches. Sew a test seam on a scrap of fabric. The stitches should be as close together as possible without the overlapping. Start sewing 1/2 inch before the rip. Sew backwards three stitches at the beginning of the seam to secure it, then continue sewing along the rip. Follow the rip so the needle goes down into the fabric on the left side of the rip when it sews the left side of the stitch and on the right side when it sews the right side of the stitch. The threads of the zigzag stitch will be perpendicular to the rip. Turn the corner on an "L" shaped rip by stopping with the needle down in the fabric on the same side as the corner of the rip and half a stitch width beyond it. The needle will be on the opposite side from the remaining part of the rip and about 1/8 inch past it. Raise the pressure foot, turn the fabric to sew along the other side of the rip, lower the pressure foot and continue sewing. Sew 1/4 inch beyond the end of the tear. Sew backwards three stitches to secure the end of the seam. Remove the remaining tape.1. samples of scrap to art?Patchwork - bits of fabric put back together to make quilts or clothing or wall-hangings or pictures or.......

While the Thread Count standard was established to create a measure of quality in the industry, it has, unfortunately, developed into an easy ploy applied by Marketers to artificially impress with elevated thread count numbers. Sometimes, to get higher thread counts, manufacturers end up using 2-ply or even higher ply threads. In easy terms, if two low quality yarn fibers are twisted together and used to weave fabric, it is considered two-ply fabric. So a 400TC 2-ply fabric is similar to a 200TC single ply fabric (this topic requires more attention, so more on this issue in a later blog). We always recommend our customers to stick with single ply sheets for durability, quality and feel. Deep Pocket Sheet Sets Traditionally, Sheet sets come with 12 - 14 inches deep fitted sheets. Nowadays, more and more people are buying taller mattresses or adding a layer of memory foam on top. It is not uncommon to see an 18 or 20 inch mattress. So if you own a tall mattress, you need to make sure you are purchasing sheet sets with a Deep Pocket fitted Sheet. We recommend that you measure your mattress and if it is 18 inches tall, for example, get yourself a 20 inch or higher Extra deep pocket sheet set.Can you really count the..........?Yes. Thunder rumbles because you get soundwaves coming from different parts of the storm. The speed of sound (760 mph, 1224 km/h) is very much less than the speed of light (186,000 mp/s, 300,000 km/s). So you see a lightning flash almost immediately it happens while the sound can take several seconds to reach an observer. If you count the gap between the lighting and the thunder, you can tell how far away the storm is. For every kilometre count 3 seconds, for every mile count 5 seconds. So if you count 15 seconds, the storm is 5 km or 3 m away from where you are.Does this count as animal abuse?Yeah call RSPCADoes this count as an extracurricular?A summer job is not an activity or an extracurricular.

10 Best Satin Bed Sheet Designs with Pictures in India
While buying the satin finish bed sheets, there are definitely somethings that you need to keep in mind. The list includes factors like: • Check the quality of the bedsheet you are thinking to purchase. • Know the size of your bed to bring the correct bed sheet size. • Look for the bed sheet that comes with a tight weave, as the tighter, the weave would be, the smoother the fabric it would be. • Look for a bed sheet with the highest number of thread count.I have a question about weaves ..?Weaves will work but get them done at a hair dresser they really find your correct color :)Troubleshoot: Popping last set of weaves?I would add more weaves. With what I know about the 2x2 you add more so the dog just goes Oh another set to go through. I would add 3-4 more sets, and when she's good at that vary it. Maybe she does 12, maybe she does 15, etc. Do not let her guess the number she needs to go through. I think you will see success with that once she's unable to count the number she needs go through. Dogs are actually very good at counting when we give them the chance.How To Choose The Best Yarn For Weaving?You can not weave without any yarn. But figuring out what yarn to use for weaving is not always easy. The type, color and weight of the yarn will determine how the final weave is going to look like. Moreover, not every yarn can be used for weaving. So choosing which weaving yarn to use might very well be the most important step when weaving. Keep reading to know what yarn to use for weaving. Types of yarns used for weaving If this is your first time weaving, you might be overwhelmed by all the different yarns you can choose from. Even small art and craft stores normally have a single section dedicated to only yarn. Wool yarn might be the first yarn that comes to mind. But yarn can be made from many different materials. Yarns can be roughly divided into the following three categories: Protein fibers like wool and silk come from animals such as sheep, alpacas, llamas, angoras, etc. Cellulose fibers come from plants. The most well-known types are cotton, hemp, and linen. Finally, synthetic fibers are made from acrylic or polyester. The properties of these synthetic fibers can easily be tunes by the manufacturer. But in general they are relatively cheap and durable. Recently blended yarns have become quite popular, because they can give the best of both worlds. For example the cotton and polyester blend has the softness and breathability of cotton and the strength of polyester yarn. Since all the types of yarn have their own pros and cons, let's look at them one by one. Acrylic is a synthetic fiber made from polymers. This means you can often find acrylic yarns that are much cheaper than the organic yarns. The acrylic yarn is pretty strong and does not change much when you wash them. However, the quality of the acrylic yarn can vary a lot. Some of the cheap ones I tried generated a lot of static and did not feel very good on my skin. I personally stopped using yarn that is 100% acrylic in my weaving. Instead, I try to go for blends that contains both acrylic and natural fibers. Alpaca yarn is also great for weaving. Although it's very soft, it's surprisingly strong. And it can be used as either weave or weft yarn. It is similar to sheep's wool, but it is a little warmer, softer and hypoallergenic. Unfortunately, it also creates more static than wool. So might want to spray a little water on it from time to time. Cotton yarn is great for weaving. Although it's soft, it's also strong enough to be used as warp threads. Moreover, cotton is one of the cheapest natural fibers you can find. You can find cotton yarn in many grades, and since they are easy to dye you can find them in almost any color. Personally, I almost always use cotton yarn for warping the loom. Hemp is a bast fiber, which means the fibers are shorter and the resulting yarn is stiffer than most other types of yarn. As a result, hemp yarn is not very suitable for weaving clothing or scarves. But they can still be used for weaving other things such as placemats, towels, etc. Also keep in mind that bast fibers (including hemp yarn) become softer and more flexible after washing them a few times. Hemp yarn has become popular recently because it's one of the most environmentally friendly yarns. Since unlike other plants like cotton, hemp can be grown without any chemicals or pesticides. Besides natural hemp yarn, you can also find "cottonized" hemp yarn. This type of hemp yarn is more flexible and easier to work with. But since it's made by washing the hemp fibers with various harsh chemicals, you can not really call it eco-friendly anymore. Linen is another bast fiber made from the stalk of flax plants. Similar to hemp, it's pretty sturdy and does not stretch. This makes it a little tricky to weave with linen yarn, because you have to wind the yarn perfectly. Moreover, pure linen can also be more expensive than you might expect for a plant-based fiber. That's why most weaver use a yarn blend. Especially "cottolin" which combines cotton and linen is popular, because it's easier to use and cheaper than 100% linen yarn. I know what you are thinking. How could you possibly weave with metal?! Metallic yarn is normally made out of nylon or acrylic yarn with a very small coating of metal particles. This make is flexible like normal yarn. But it also has the shiny look you would expect from metal. Weaving in a few rows of metallic yarn can give an interesting look to whatever you are weaving. But I would not weave something exclusively out of metallic yarn. Silk yarn is known for its nice feel and beautiful drape. However, depending on the quality and source of the silk, it can be quite expensive. Silk is definitely one of the luxury yarns. Moreover, while weaving the silk yarn can slip around a bit. So they are not as beginner-friendly as some of the other yarns. If pure silk yarn is too expensive, you can also consider a blend of silk with a cheaper fiber. I am pretty sure we have all had a wool sweater at some point in our lives. Depending on how the fibers are processed, the wool yarn can be either very fluffy or spun into a dense yarn. A fluffy wool yarn are great for weaving wall hangings, clothing, and rugs. Whereas the dense wool yarn is normally used to weave coats or upholstery fabric. Since wool can be stretched a little, it's easy to work with and very forgiving even if you make small mistakes. But also keep in mind that anything you make out of wool yarn can also be quite delicate while washing. The yarn you buy can come in varying thickness, also referred to as the yarn weight. Yarn weight can get a little confusing, because different companies can use different systems to classify their yarn. One of the most common methods is the Standard Yarn Weight System, which classifies yarn on a scale from 0 to 7. Where 0 is very thin while 7 is very thick. What yarn weight is best for weaving? Medium yarn weight is the best for making a tight weave. More bulky yarn will speed up the weaving process but might leave the warp threads visible. Combining different yarn weights is a great way to add texture and interesting patterns to your weave. Of course, you want to make sure you are choosing the right thickness for your project. For example, bulky or super bulky yarn would be a good choice for making a scarf to keep you warm. While fine yarn would be better for something that needs a tight weave. Moreover, if you are hand weaving with a frame loom you probably want to use yarns that are on the bulky side. Or else it will take a very long time to finish a single weave. What do the numbers on yarn mean? The numbers on yarn indicate the yarn weight. The Standard Yarn Weight System uses a single digit from 0 to 7 to specify the weight. The US system uses two numbers. The first refers to the thickness of a single ply and the second refers to the number of plies. The confusing part is that in the Standard Yarn Weight System a higher number means the yarn is more bulky. So a yarn weight of 7 is more bulky than 4. But in the US system bulky yarn has a lower number. For example, a 5/2 yarn and a 3/2 yarn both have 2 plies, but the 3/2 is more bulky than the 5/2 yarn. Can you use any yarn for weaving? You can weave with almost any type of yarn you can get your hands on. Cotton, wool, and acrylic yarns are the most frequently used yarns by beginners. Other types of yarn such as silk or hemp may be more expensive or more difficult to work with. It is best to try out different yarns and get a feel for all of them. Also do not be afraid of using multiple yarns in the same weave. Many experienced weavers combine yarns on purpose to add extra texture to the weave. Although knitting yarns and weaving yarns can be made from the same fibers, they can have very different characteristics because fiber preparation and spinning process is different for each of them. Knitting yarns are normally soft and stretchy, whereas weaving yarns are designed to be stronger, more durable, and more rigid. Of course, you can still knit with a weaving yarn, and you can weave with a knitting yarn. However, if you are weaving with a knitting yarn, you might not be used to how stretchy it is. So you have to be extra careful when measuring your yarn. Also knitting yarn is not always strong enough to be used as a weft threads. So make sure to check if your knitting yarn can resist some tension. If possible, I would recommend going with weaving yarn. But the different between weaving yarn and knitting yarn seems to be less than it used to be. What is the best yarn for warping a loom? Cotton yarn is the best yarn for warping a loom since it's both affordable and very durable. Do not use stretchy yarn like wool for the warp, since your weave will shrink once you take it off the loom. Experienced weavers may also experiment with other yarns to create interesting designs. During the weaving process, the warp threads will be under constant tension. That's why you want to use a yarn that is strong and durable enough. The strength of the yarn is determined by the type of yarn and the density. Traditionally lots of different yarns such as wool, linen, alpaca, and silk were used for warping. But nowadays cotton yarn is more commonly used since it is cheaper and stronger. No cotton yarn available? No problem! Simply pull a string on both ends and see what happens. If the yarn stretches, unravels or breaks it is not suited as warp yarn. What is the best yarn for loom weaving? Cotton, linen, and wool are the most popular types of yarn used for weaving. Cotton in particular is very beginner-friendly since it's affordable, strong, and not as stretchy. However, any type of yarn can be used for weaving. Experiment with different yarns to find your personal favorite. You want to choose your weft yarn depending on what you are weaving. For example, for a dish towel you want to go with a sturdy yarn, whereas you want to go with something more comfortable if you are weaving a scarf. Make sure to combine different yarns into your projects. Not only in terms of the fiber that the yarn is made out of, but also in terms of yarn thickness/weight and color. If you are having problems finding the right colors that go well together, an online color palette generator can help a lot. Wool yarn and wool blends are great for weaving wall hangings. You want to use thick yarns since it will speed up your weaving, and they look nicer on wall hangings. Additionally, you want to use plenty of different colors and yarn weights to create interesting patterns and add texture to your weave. Cotton, linen, and cottolin are all great options for weaving dish towels. These yarns are strong and durable, which is crucial for weaving dish towels. Make sure to use unmercerized cottons, since mercerized cotton is not as absorbent. Also use thin yarns to ensure a tight weave. The best yarns for weaving scarves are wool, merino, alpaca, silk, or any blend that uses two of these yarns. All these yarns are soft and feel great on your skin. If you want to use a cheaper alternative, use a blend that combines one of these yarns with cheaper acrylic yarn. Cotton, linen, and cottolin are all great options for weaving placemats. These yarns are strong and durable, which is crucial for weaving placemats. Moreover, these yarns also do not change or shrink much when washed, which makes it easy to clean them. Cotton is the best yarn for weaving blankets since you can wash it in a machine without worries. Yarns such as wool and alpaca feel very soft and warm but often shrink when washed repeatedly, which makes them beautiful but not functional. Moreover, acrylic yarn normally do not feel nice on the skin.
Going Hi-tech for Halloween
Going Hi-tech for Halloween
I've noticed this year, more than ever, that technology seems to be playing a big role in Halloween. No, I'm not talking about websites like halloween.com or spirithalloween.com , I'm talking about how technology has impacted decorations and parties.Animatronics (a portmanteau of animate and electronics) is arguably the area of Halloween that has been most impacted by technology. Looking at a site such as hauntedprops.com and browsing its animatronics section will raise an eyebrow or two. I thought some of the moving creatures at my local Halloween shop were expensive at $300. Now I appreciate the fact that they can go up to close to ten thousand dollars for a fully animated headless horsemen. Just what every family home needs.A few years ago I wrote a column about using a projector to create "spooky" effects for visitors to your home. The idea is still a good one - take a notebook computer with a webcam and point it towards the entrance of your home. Send the output of the laptop with the image to a projector and instead of worrying about a real screen, use an old bed sheet or white painting sheet as your projection surface. The ripples in the fabric will just add to the effect. (You could also "accidentally" spill some ketchup on it too.) For myself, we're having our biannual video game party Game Night with a Halloween theme (it's dubbed Game Night: Spooky Edition) and I've decided to use technology once again to enhance the mood. In the backyard I'll tack old paint sheets to the fence and project videos of the Top 10 Scariest Video Games of All Time. Something that doesn't necessarily need to be heard but is definitely great when seen.If there is enough time, I have some extra projectors that I could use to create slide shows of previous events to have the party-goers try and find themselves in the parade of pictures. Instead of using DVD players or computers to produce the images for the projector, I'll be using tiny media players and streaming devices like I discussed last week. Not only do they consume less power, they take up less space and without any moving parts are very reliable - especially if I hide them in a tree.If you are not having a party but just want to spruce up the place for the trick-or-treaters that will soon be knocking at your door, why not consider creating more of an atmosphere? Sound is one of the most effective ways to do this and with portable music players being so easy to use these days you could create a Halloween playlist on your device and wirelessly connect it to one of the various Bluetooth speaker solutions out there (personally I've been enjoying the products from fluance.com ). Now your visitors will have something to be scared about!Finally, you might consider lighting effects. I've seen strobe lights, battery operated candles, and a host of other devices that light up which effectively add to the mood of Halloween. Of course, things that combine all aspects are a lot of fun too, such as an animatronic that makes sounds when it detects motion and lights up. It's also pretty expensive.So whether you celebrate this "holiday" or not, there is no denying that technology is playing a bigger role. From free Halloween apps that you can put on your mobile device, to things in your home that enhance the experience, it's something fun to do and work on before we get down to the ideas of another big holiday that is now looming in the distance. No matter which way you go, enjoy the thrills and chills of the season and the most important thing is to be safe! Happy Halloween.The Personal Computer Museum is hosting Game Night: Spooky Edition, a video game event for families with a Halloween theme today from 7:30 PM until 1:00 AM. There will be over two thousand dollars worth of prizes, 40 different game stations to play on, as well as food and beverages. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. The address is 13 Alma Street and more information can be found at gamenight.ca Syd Bolton is the curator of the Personal Computer Museum and the manager of Information Technology at ACIC/Methapharm.
5 Ridiculous Sex Myths From History (You Probably Believe)
5 Ridiculous Sex Myths From History (You Probably Believe)
Since the sexual revolution of the '60s, we tend to think that sexuality from the Baby Boomers back to the beginning of time was a long history of repressed urges, prudish fundamentalist restrictions and brutal rape politics.But it turns out that a lot of what BBC dramas tell you about sex in history is just a fanciful cover for sex lives that didn't differ that much from our own. Myths that persist to this day include ...5Victorians Were Repressed and SexlessWhen you think about the Victorian era, you probably remember a whole bunch of jokes about how women couldn't show their ankles without it being considered indecent exposure. If they ever did have sex, they would first have to peel off so many layers of clothing that it almost wasn't worth it.Queen Victoria is rumored to have told her daughter to "just lie back and think of England" when the princess was concerned about having to fulfill her wifely duties on her wedding night. There's even a myth that Victorians covered the legs of because they resembled female flesh.Frankly, we're surprised that the population of England didn't collapse after men got sick of sobbing their way through sex long enough to impregnate their wives.It's true that Victorians weren't exactly into halter tops and assless pants. In public, that is. In private, they made up for it by producing . And not just any porn, but the type of porn that would make the most seasoned Internet deviant blush and cover their table legs. We're talking incest, rape, pedophilia, orgies, BDSM ... and .Here's a taste from a piece published in 1907:-From Alas, Victorians also left their table legs as bare as their marvelously hairy women: furniture-leg covers are a myth originally peddled, ironically, by demonstrating prudishness to his British audience. As for the famous prudishness of Queen Victoria, not only is the "think of England" exchange untrue, but the Queen's diaries reveal she was , and often presented her husband with male and female nude artworks. Oh, and this is those diaries were heavily censored posthumously by her children.So the Victorians weren't exactly Puritans. Then again, neither were the Puritans ...4Puritans Were Puritanical Every American schoolkid who has sat through a lesson on the history of Thanksgiving was told that the pilgrims who founded America , a group of sexually repressed religious fanatics. In reality, but since that's the only context in which most of us have even heard of Puritans, we just mentally combined the pilgrims and the Puritans into a single group of people who loved turkey but loathed sex.But those early settlers in America were part of a much larger group in the Church of England who were working to purify the world of anything relating to genitalia.Although sex between unmarried couples was theoretically a crime in Puritan society, that hardly slowed them down. It just meant that their society was rife with shotgun weddings. According to , up to 1 in 3 Puritan women were pregnant when they were married. The odds of becoming pregnant from one act of intercourse are a lot lower than that, so that's a lot of deviant behavior for a group that cheerfully crushed people to death for looking "witchy."Given that they lived in such a repressive and extremist society, these dangerous criminals must have carried out their illicit affairs with discretion, right? Not even close. The Puritans had sex . They had sex in churchyards. They had sex in ditches and in hedges. They had sex in bars and in bean patches and on porches. One of the most common places for Puritan servants to have sex was in the kitchen, often while the other servants watched.It's not even like the clergy were uptight about a little action in the bedroom or bean patch. The Puritan church not only condoned sex for pleasure between married spouses, it actually it. Sex was not only because it produced offspring, but because the Puritans believed that sexually pleasing one's spouse was a religious duty. At least one man was excommunicated from the Puritan church for refusing to have sex with his wife. Impotency or poor sexual performance was considered grounds for divorce, and a man was not to withdraw from his wife in case he ruined her orgasm.So, how could the Puritans justify awesome sex for married couples but no sex for the unmarried? The Puritan church believed that because marriage was between a man, a woman and Jesus, sex should also be between a man, a woman and Jesus. This wasn't even a metaphor: The Puritan church by describing the "voluptuous delights" that awaited them in heaven with their "heavenly husband." Yeah, they're talking about sex with Jesus.3Jews Had Sex Through a SheetThis one turns up in all the time, and Christopher Hitchens as an example of religious crazy: Jews conduct the marital act by way of a hole cut in a bed sheet, so as to avoid the lustful distractions of nudity.The story is so pervasive that whenever someone has occasion to discuss Jewish sex, you can be sure there's going to be some to it. They joke about it on . When it came time to write a book about the subject, they called it, "."If the media is to be believed, Orthodox Jewish men must go without ever seeing boobs in a sex-related context.These kinds of references tend to be as much a learning experience for Orthodox Jews as they are to other people, since the Jewish community have always made love like normal, non-furry people: . In fact, Jewish law clothed or covered sex. This means that not only are movie portrayals of deliberate Jewish sheet-covering inaccurate, but that those love scenes in which the actress mysteriously leaves her bra on are . Well, that's how we choose to interpret it anyway.But how on earth did such a specifically wacky myth start? The theory is that it arose from the tallit katan, a Jewish religious undergarment that does look a bit like a bed sheet with hole in it:That thing actually goes over your head. But back in the day, non-Jewish people saw their Jewish neighbors washing or drying something with a hole in it and thought, "." Combine general anti-Semitism with the depthless perversion of the human imagination and you have the most oddly enduring penis-related myth since "It'll be OK just this once if we pull out."2Feudal Lords Could Legally Rape Peasant Wives (Like in Braveheart)"Droit de seigneur," or the right of feudal lords to sleep with peasants' wives on their wedding nights, is probably most familiar today from , in which Mel Gibson's troubles with the English begin with him refusing to allow them to have their rightful way with his new girlfriend. But it can be found all over the place: It's a major plot point in the opera , there's a movie about it, it even pops up on the TV series . Basically, if you were a male peasant in the Middle Ages, you had about as much a chance of bedding an actual virgin as you did of finding a good Wi-Fi hotspot.In fact, a whole second myth rose out of this supposed law. If popular opinion and email forwards are to be trusted, the word "" actually came about because the king's permission was once required to have sex with your wife ever. If you wanted a baby other than the one delivered nine months after your wedding that looks suspiciously like Lord Peeblesworth down the street, you first had to hang a placard outside saying "Fornication Under Consent of the King," or "F.U.C.K." (presumably subtitled "If the dirt-covered hovel is rockin,' don't come a-knockin.'") Other versions of this tale feature soldiers obtaining this "consent" in order to rape foreign women.The subject of rape-kings come up in a bunch of historical texts ... always in reference to some country. According to pretty much everyone in Europe, the neighboring kings and lords were raping everybody out there, but no country actually listed this right in its laws, or for that matter, . In other words, rape-lords are the historical equivalent of spreading rumors about rival high schools, and Mel Gibson was promulgating an outdated form of medieval racism. Man, who would have thought?As for the old chestnut about the F.U.C.K. acronym, that's even more spurious, as most likely the word evolved like most other words do, from some ancient European word -- in this case, "fokka," to strike or to push. Hardly scandalous.1Contraception and Knowledge of the Female Orgasm Are NewAs the theory goes, the ladies had it pretty bad in bed for most of Western history. Until the rise of modern feminism, men pretty much used sex as an elaborate form of masturbation, giving no thought to how to please their women sexually, and the art of female pleasure was about as well-known as space travel. And if this bad sex wasn't bad enough, it also inevitably resulted in at least 25 children, since reliable birth control also didn't exist at all until very recently.It's easy to see why so many of us have this idea: After all, it was only a generation or two ago that the views of Dr. Sigmund "clitoral orgasms are a sign of immaturity" Freud were massively popular. Surely things before that must have been even , right?The female orgasm not only has an extensive history, but before the rise of Freudianism was even celebrated than it is now. We've about shady Victorian doctors who used their magic hands to cure uptight women, but the mystical properties of the female orgasm go back far earlier than this. In medieval times, that the female reproductive system was the same as a man's but inside-out, and they thought that babies were only made upon partners achieving climax. And even if you weren't aiming at baby formation, a lack of orgasm in sex could still lead to a of "seminal humor." Thanks a lot for ridding us of piece of ignorance, Modern Science.As for contraception, every form of it save for the Pill has a long history, and we mean long. Diaphragms and other barrier devices, made of everything from wrapped sea sponges to crocodile dung and often containing materials that melted inside the body and sealed off the cervix, have been in use , and popped up among the ancient Greeks and Jews. Women in the Roman Empire even had called silphium, modern-day fennel. And if you're thinking, "So what? They probably also believed that eating blessed leeches cured stomach cancer," consider this: Modern tests in which scientists gave rats closely related versions of the herb found that it was effective . Oh, and the reason the scientists couldn't use the exact strain the Romans used was because the Romans relied on it so much that they .: women love casual sex (you're just bad at it), everything you've heard about your "sexual peak" is bullshit and your favorite book sellers are now taking pre-orders for a ! Hitting shelves in October, is a fully-illustrated, systematic deconstruction of all of the bullshit you learned in school.It's loaded with facts about history, your body, and the world around you that your teachers didn't want you to know. And as a bonus? We've also included the kinkiest sex acts ever described in the Bible.
Bed Sheet Materials and Weaves - 2021 Ultimate Guide
Bed Sheet Materials and Weaves - 2021 Ultimate Guide
Why is thread count important for sheets? Thread count is important when it comes to sheets made of our cotton. A higher thread count means a finer and more subtle thread. A lower thread count means thicker, less refined threads. This can affect the feel, softness, and durability of the sheets. What should be considered when purchasing new sheets? There are many things to consider when making the decision to buy new sheets and which kind is chosen. Things to keep in mind are climate, how the sheets are cared for, personal preferences such as sleeping hot or feel of a sheet, and more. What does "weave" means when it comes to sheets? The type of weave on a specific sheet can change the feel of the sheet altogether. Weaves in sheets can be in the common crisscross pattern or diagonal. They can even be knitted or have things woven into the fibers. What might be the best material choices for someone who sleeps hot? Sheets come in many options and companies have been developing them from materials that provide a cooler experience for hot sleepers. Some of those materials include Tencel, bamboo, Modal, and silk.In the natural structure known as a β-sheet...?Maybe d., maybe e. The part about " three or more peptide chains form a structure" is correct, but I find nothing about anything called an "oligoplate". a., b., and c. are certainly false.Dealing with multiple types in an excel sheetI have already created(never needed to read one) some Excel sheet's with the Apache POI framework.You can read the cell type from the Cell object with getCellType().You can also read the cell as raw value with getRawValue() so you get a String as result. To show you how you can work with formulas, I refer to this answer on Stackoverflow.What is your favorite sheet count?I have one set of 1,000 TC sheets - wonderful but I hate them because they have to be ironed! So I bought two sets of 800 TC (Thread Count to Scouse) from QVC - they are wrinkle resistant and if taken out of the dryer the minute it stops, Viola! no wrinkles - just fold for the next use. Soooooo DE vine! CJWhere can you buy a black, shiny, non pourus material for on top of a bar. i have tried home depot, everywhere?You can use plastic laminate (Formica). They sell it at home improvement stores at about $60 to $90 per sheet.

For chocolate peanut butter cookies, add 1/4 cup cocoa and a dusting of cinnamon to the batter. Enjoy! -Electric field of infinite sheetYour mistake comes from a misunderstanding about the charge density. It is not uniformly distributed through the volume of the cylinder; rather, it is concentrated in an infinitesimally thin sheet; namely, the volumetric charge density (which is what Gauss's Law gives you) is $ho=sigmadelta(z)$. So your integral on the left-hand side of (1) should be$$frachoepsilon_0int dV = fracsigmaepsilon_0int dA int delta(z) dz$$Since, for any region of integration containing $0$, we have that $int delta(z) dz =1 $, therefore, this integral evaluates to$$fracsigmaepsilon_0pi R^2$$which is the total charge enclosed by your Gaussian surface divided by $epsilon_0$. Incidentally, this would have been completely obvious had you used the integral form of Gauss's Law instead of the differential form
Difference Between Flat Bed Sheet and Fitted Bed Sheet
Difference Between Flat Bed Sheet and Fitted Bed Sheet
To understand the difference between flat bed sheet and fitted bed sheet, we must know what is flat bed sheet and fitted bed sheet? Nowadays flat and fitted bed sheets are used for the same purpose - to protect the mattress and make smooth surface for lying.A bed sheet is a rectangular piece of cloth or linen cotton used to cover a mattress. It is this sheet that one typically lies on. In many areas of the world, a second flat bed sheet is laid on top of the sheet covering the mattress. This is known as a "flat bed sheet" ,and when a top sheet is used, the sheet covering the mattress is known as a "fitted bed sheet". One sleeps between the two bed sheets. Blankets, comforters, and other bed covers are then placed on top of the second bed sheet.Many people buy mattress protector in spite of fitted sheets. others who love sewing buy fabric from fabric store Fabric.com at cheap rate and sew themselves.Many of our customers ask for the difference between these two. Some wants to buy from us at Linens'n'Curtains, Whichever the case, we will guide you here with the difference between these.So, here we are explaining in details about both the sheets either flat or fitted.The flat sheet, also called the top sheet, originally is placed between the sleeper and the blanket. Its function is to make your bedding more welcoming. It also protects the blanket or the comforter from getting dirty. On warmer nights the flat sheet can be used by itself to cover the sleeper instead of a blanket. The exact size of a flat sheet when purchasing is less important as it is used separately.One can use a queen size flat sheet on a double bed or vice versa.Fitted sheets are the sheets that cover the mattress on a bed. They often have elastic sewn into each one of the four corners to help it stay in place over the mattress. Fitted sheets, like the other components of bedding, are sold individually, called open stock, or as part of a complete set. A complete sheet set includes the fitted sheet; the flat or top sheet; and either one pillow case for twin-sized beds, or two for all other sizes.The purpose of a flat sheet is to keep the comforter/blanket clean (and to have a soft layer next to your skin).Flat sheets look like their name; they are flat, and fold easily and neatly. Fitted sheets, because of their elastic corners, are harder to fold and cannot lie smooth and flat unless pulled over a mattress.Fitted sheets protect the mattress and provide a comfortable surface for the sleeper to lie on. Also called bottom sheets, they fit snugly around the corners of the mattress. A flat sheet lies over the fitted sheet, tucked in on the sides and bottom, under the comforter. Flat sheets help create a welcoming bedspread. They also protect the comforter from getting dirty, so it does not have to be washed as often, or they can be used by themselves on warmer nights instead of blankets.When buying fitted sheets, it is very important to pay attention to the dimensions of your mattress. While it is possible to use flat sheets of the wrong size (using a queen size flat sheet on a double bed, for example), this should not be done with fitted sheets. Fitted sheets must pull snugly over the mattress and tuck in under each edge, so that they cannot be easily pulled off.Now we have come up with new product called Fitted Valance Sheet which is actually sheet with valance attached and built in fitted sheet. so it is all in one extra deep fitted valance sheet.Read our story here - How we made customized Fitted Valance Sheet. and what customers are saying about it.What our customers are saying -Know more - Where to buy 12 inch drop bed skirt?What sorts of loads might you drive as you progress from rookie to expert truck driver?Started out in 1976 pulling box trailer's delivering dry box freight & in 1978 started pulling doubles for Bush Hog Loadcraft out of Brady Texas delivering container box chassis to both east & west coast's.
