What is a good attention getter for a speech im writing on the negative affects of citizens united?

Im writing a speech on why citizens united has a negative affect on the election process. I need an interesting attention getter to grab people interests any ideas? they have to tye in

rmahadevan answers:

Showing a pie chart of much wealthy donors contribute as a percentage of total contributions

Lizzie asks…

Shouldn’t the supreme court judges who ruled in favor of Citizens United be executed for treason?

Citizens United was a decision to allow unlimited money to be spent on campaign contributions in super pacs, which will ultimately destroy our country. I believe they should receive corporal punishment for their treason, and it should be done with the consent of the voters.

rmahadevan answers:

No.

I would personally support a ban on ALL non-individual political contributions, including unions. Absent that, the system as it stood was correctly negated by the Supreme Court.

Sandra asks…

After Citizens United; both Corporations and Unions won unlimited campaign contribution?

And both played it in the last elections. Republicans are trying to bust up the unions largely to get rid of funding for Democrats. However corporations are not on the GOP hit list; unions are. So that after citizens united; only corporations will have any power?

rmahadevan answers:

That’s the goal of the Koch Brothers and the GOP. Sadly, a large plurality of Americans think that’s the way to go. When Republicans and Big Business finally win total control of all governments, it will be too late for the Middle Class. The feudal lords will have convinced people it is in their best interests to live the life of serfdom. People will have to beg for their daily crumbs and water and then wonder why they suffer in misery.

Best place to buy a rolex watch in the caribbean?

Traveling to St. Thomas, St. Marten, Bahamas, Puerto Rico next month and I’m looking to buy a new Rolex and wanted some recommendation of stores to goto while in port.

rmahadevan answers:

St. Marten.

Go to Shoppers Haven. Ask for Ken.
Dicker bargain, dicker some more.
In the Caribbean you never pay asking price.

All the islands have Diamonds International but they are kind of high.

Puerto Rico is high as is the Bahamas.

1. St Marten
2. St Thomas

Since St Thomas is a US possession if you are from the US you have a higher customs allowance.

Ruth asks…

What is the difference between a Rolex submariner 11613BL and submariner 11613L?

Ready for a challenge? The two watches appear to be identical but are listed for different prices ($7100 on Amazon for the one ending in “BL” and $6,295 for the “L” at steindiamonds.com.) The “L” version has more hits on the internet while the “BL” seems to have more Japanese and Chinese hits. If you look at pictures of watches with the two product IDs they are identical. The list of features appears to be identical. But the difference in price indicates there must be a differerence of some kind. Please help!

rmahadevan answers:

I think you should look for a website that has both items available and compare prices from there. I don’t see any difference between the 2 of them either. Maybe one was released first, then later rolex improved it and released it again with a similar item numer.

how long does an automatic tissot watch work?

without overhaul like locle automatic made by tissot

rmahadevan answers:

I have a kinetic Tissot watch, I have worn it every day for some 4 years and I bought it second hand. No batteries, no maintenance, keeps perfect time. That was the best value I ever got for £100.

I assume by “automatic” you mean it is kinetically powered. These watches are great because you don’t ever have to open them up to put batteries in. And in my experience, they are very reliable and quite accurate.

rmahadevan answers:

Well, if you have a blog, facebook or myspace account, you can always post anti-fur trade photos on your profile with links to organizations that people can go to and contribute to.

Also, a these industries cater to designers that still think it’s ok to use fur in their designs. If you stop supporting them by buying their products, then the demand for fur isn’t as great.

Some brands that LOVE fur are: Jennifer Lopez, Sean Combs, Kimora Lee Simmons, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Versace, Prada, Marc Jacobs…and countless others.

Also, buy not supporting Vouge, Harper’s Bazzar, Elle, W and most other fashion magazines that feature Fur. They depend on their designers advertisement, so by not supporting either one, the need for fur gets reduced.

Also, here’s a list of Designers that have stopped the use of fur.

rmahadevan answers:

Rutherford’s Most Important Work

In 1906, when he moved to the University of Manchester, Rutherford teamed up with Hans Geiger, famous for the invention known as the Geiger counter. Together, they set up a centre to study radiation, which was about to change physics forever. Rutherford’s test consisted of bombarding gold foil with alpha particles; he then monitored the paths of the particles. An amazing thing happened: Rutherford and his students saw that some alpha particles were deflected, that is, bounced back straight toward the source.

From the experiment, he was able to deduce that atoms have a central core, which he called the nucleus (plural, nuclei) and the particles that bounced back directly hit on the nucleus. This discovery was of fundamental importance in understanding the atomic structure, basis of all subsequent nuclear physics.

Rutherford concluded that an atom must consist of a minute but dense nucleus, surrounded by space in which electrons orbit. His atomic model’s structure, likened into a planet, became known as Rutherford Planetary Model. The orbital model of Niels Bohr (Bohr Model), later evolved.

In 1909, New Zealand physicist Ernest Rutherford, along with Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden at the University of Manchester, performed a famous experiment in order to put the plum pudding model of the atom to the test.

In this experiment, alpha particles (a type of naturally-occurring radiation consisting of positively charged helium atoms) were fired at a high velocity into a very thin sheet of gold foil. The trajectories of these particles after passing through the foil were then detected. If the plum pudding model of the atom was correct, then it was assumed that many of the particles passing through would have had their courses slightly altered by the charge within the atoms, though in no dramatic fashion.

Lisa asks…

How do I safely get rid of spiders in my house?

I live in the midwest. This time of year spiders seem to be a problem. I have 3 dogs and worry about pesticides. How do I safely eliminate spiders from my house?

rmahadevan answers:

Pholcus phalangioides is also called “daddy long legs,” and its mouth is too small to be able to puncture human flesh. They do, however, often dine on other spiders. We had black widows in my mother-in-law’s garage (one time leading to an Aliens moment when, after finding a bunch of them, came upon a huge “queen” in the back). But they’re all gone, now. At one point, a Pholcus phalangioides got itself into the garage, and within a year, all the black widows were gone. We’ve that variety all over the house, now, and they make good radon gas detectors (i.e., if the spider is alive, you don’t have radon gas.) I don’t see them getting other insects (e.g., mosquitoes), but they keep other spiders out.

Juicers – How to get the most juice out of them?

I am juicing cabbages (medicine for my gastritis) and when I juice it with my sharper image juicer I see that alot of the pulp is moist and like half of it is not even juiced at all. I feel like I am wasting alot of the cabbage…I just chop it to the size of a quarter or something how should I chop it? Should I chop it smaller or bigger? Thanks.

rmahadevan answers:

I believe the sharper image juicer that you’re using is a centrifugal juicer type which means that it process produce in a centrifugal fashion wherein they are chopped finely by fast-spinning sharp-blades and then crushed into the the strainer through what manufacturers call “g-force” and since cabbage can be classified as one of the softer, green leafy vegetables, centrifugal juicers won’t be able to provide you maximum output; centrifugal juicers like the one you currently have is best for hard produce like most of the fruits (i.e. Apple) but they can’t juice green vegetables as well as masticating juicers.

Masticating juicers like omega 8005 or the Hurom Slow Juicer will give you the most output out of vegetable produce like cabbages.

George asks…

Sauce maker/ food strainer to make apple cider?

I’ve been making apple cider with my omega juicer, but the chute is so small that i have to cut my apples really thin and it takes forever to juice them.
Would a sauce maker handle my juicer‘s job?
Thank you

rmahadevan answers:

Forget about the sauce maker and the juicer. Get yourself an apple press and use it. I use a large one that I got second-hand and its done me wonders.

Joseph asks…

Which of these juicers is best?

I am planning on doing a juice fast and am trying to choose between a Champion,Omega and Breville.
Which is best and why?

rmahadevan answers:

I honestly don’t know the Champion that well but the Omega is a powerful juicer that uses a masticating process for juice-extraction. The Breville I quite like as they are both quite elegant designs and have some extra features that allow them to make smoothies as well as extra wide intake chutes so you can pop pieces in with little prep. It depends a bit on what exactly you want to use it for. Link below shows some different kinds.

What major should I take to break into the fashion world?

Like, for example designing jewelry for Disney Couture, or sketching ideas and becoming part of an artistic team for big names like Chanel or Marc Jacobs, or something fun like Toki Doki or Harajuku By Gwen Stefanie…

What credible and flexible (as in it can easily apply to other fields if I were to take a different route in life) majors do you recommend?

Thanks. :)

rmahadevan answers:

Take classes in pop culture, marketing and media. Art history will focus on art — studying painting can help you learn about color, shape, etc. Also, when designing a clothing item, understand the difference between clothing item and costume. Study public relations, survey research — you must be in touch with your public to be successful, communication, english would help too. Don`t get too hung up on drawing, sketching outfits is one thing. Study advertising (look at the gap product red line, they have an amazing ad campaign. Or obama`s election speeches, etc). Also look how everything from clothing lines, to electronics, to whatever has some sort of artist-athlete endorsement. Do you thing jordan designed his shoes or wears his own underwear?, or do certain bands care if they`re playing fender or esp guitars? Watch austin powers, and count the number of product references in that movie.

My suggestion, study media, business and marketing with some classes in english and art.

Polo by Ralph Lauren, Gendarme, Grey Flannel, Vetiver by Creed, Givenchy Gentleman, Canoe by Dana are the ones that most come to mind for me when I think of classic men’s colognes that have stood the test of time. Vetiver has been around since the late nineteenth century, Canoe has been around since the 1930’s, Polo has been around since the early 80’s, Givenchy Gentleman has been around since the 60’s as has Grey Flannel, and Gendarme has been around since the late 80’s early 90’s. Polo is the strongest scent and Gendarme is the lightest and cleanest. All the rest fall somewhere in between.

This cologne is very pleasant to the senses but definitely not overwhelming.
Many women find Givenchy cologne very sexy. Avid fans of this collection have remained loyal despite the fact that many other designer brands are now available in the market. Givenchy cologne evidently combines sophistication and modernity.

2. Unique Vision

Hubert De Givenchy, a famous fashion designer, founded Les Parfums Givenchy in 1957. The first Givenchy cologne was launched in 1959 and it was called Monsieur de Givenchy. Givenchy had a vision of creating a distinct image for its men’s cologne collection. It wanted to promote the gentlemen’s image that is both sophisticated and elegant.

In 1975, the Givenchy Gentleman was added in the collection. This item has proven to be very intoxicating for women as it has a very romantic aromatic fragrance. Sometime in the 80’s, the Xeryus was launched. The Givenchy Xeryus is ideal for daily use because of its distinctive clean and fresh fragrance. Then in the 1990’s the Pi collection was launched. The Givenchy Pi is noted for its great smell that is very refined and oriental. This is often used for very special occasions.
Just recently, the Play collection was released. It is endorsed by famous pop icon Justin Timberlake. Other items in the Givenchy cologne collection are the Givenchy Pour Homme, Givenchy Blue Label, Givenchy Insense and Givenchy Very Irresistible. They have all gained excellent responses from the consumers.

The Pi is a combination of a citrus and woodsy aroma, giving it a refined and oriental appeal. The Gentleman is woodsy and spicy with a hint of a floral scent.
4. Givenchy Men Are Sophisticated and Elegant
When the Les Parfums Givenchy was founded, Hubert de Givenchy had a vision of combining French elegance with American modernity. Givenchy wanted to represent a style that would make Givenchy men distinct from all other men.

The Givenchy men are sophisticated but also classy, exuding a fresh confidence and elegance that makes them the envy of many.

5. Women Find Givenchy Men Sexy

Women find men who wear Givenchy cologne very attractive and sexy. Givenchy definitely creates very seductive fragrances that are sure to make men a magnet for women.

Does anyone know of Pradaxa being used “off-label” for a patient with a mechanical heart valve?

My wife has a terrible time with coumadin, her inr varies wildly between danger zones of clotting and bleeding. Pradaxa sounds like the answer but has not been studied with mechanical heart valves. One source suggested that physicians use meds “off-label” but I don’t want her to be the first.

rmahadevan answers:

Pradaxa makes some people have an upset stomach or indigestion. If that is causing your symptoms, and not anxiety, there’s a good chance that it won’t go away. Try taking it with food. If that doesn’t help, talk with your doctor to see if you are a candidate for a medication like Prilosec or Protonix to relieve the symptoms.

A very quick introduction to watches and then, below, some suggestions:

Watch lovers love mechanical watches. Mechanical watches are anachronistic; quartz (battery) watches are more accurate and less expensive. Good mechanical watches can cost several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars and are intended to last decades or longer. Patek Philippe, Rolex, and others make watches at this level.

Most people do not want such an expensive watch, and watches in the $30+ range are accurate and reliable. (Timex makes watches at this level.)

For a bit more, you can choose a watch with better finishing details and have more options (style-wise). If you’re willing to spend up to $100 or so you can choose from innumerable styles of quartz watches that will be well-made and reliable. Watches at this level will be steel and, if you wish, gold-plated. Seiko and many others make watches at this level.

(In between extremely good mechanical watches and $100 watches are quartz watches made by serious watch companies that also make mechanical watches. These watches are made of gold so they cost quite a bit more than $200, and their finishing detail is usually very well done. Watches in this range might cost from $1,200 to $15,000+. Baume et Mercier and many others make watches at this level.)

For him, look at Seiko, among others. They make many different styles and their quality is good.

I have several dress shoes… so far kenneth cole new york is the best shoes that i have…

and the worst in term of comfortability and price is gucci shoes

rmahadevan answers:

The most comfortable is Salvatore Ferragamo! Hands down! Worth every penny.

Nine West is not that bad either. I think the curvature of the sole really suits my feet. :)

I don’t know about uncomfortable since I never actually take them home from the store.
