What situations call for an electric collar in training? Who should use these collars?

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Question by KS: What situations call for an electric collar in training? Who should use these collars?
I’ve never had any experience with electric collars, so just asking the dog community what they know.

In what training situations should they be used?
Should only experienced trainers use them or should average pet owners be taught how they work/how to use them as well?
If you have used one…what issue were you addressing? Why did you choose an electric collar? And what were the results?

Do these old Lionel train tracks and transformer have value?

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Question by mrenticon: Do these old Lionel train tracks and transformer have value?
When i moved into my house a few years ago, left behind was a train track setup (no trains) and an old Trainmaster Type KW Transformer in the corner. Can you tell me whether the tracks and transformer are worth keeping/selling? I’d hate to throw out something that is useful to someone else. Thanks.

Hi, Mrenticon!

There are definitely people out there that would be interested in these items.

Although it is really the engines and cars that are of value, the basic track pieces and transformers are also sought after.

I’ll try to find a site for “Lionel train collectors”.

If I don’t get back yo you I’m certain there are train collecting magazines and such with a classified ad section.

I’ll see what I can do. Definitely don’t chuck this stuff. Somebody out there would enjoy having it!

Does anyone see something uniquely different with how these troops deaths were reported?

Question by Really Now?: Does anyone see something uniquely different with how these troops deaths were reported?
http://www.denverpost.com/ci_12119972?source=rss

I do:

The title is “Truck Bomber” first and then “suicide attacker”.

Then it says that the 5 were in the “wrong place at the wrong time”. The bomb was set:
“near a national police station in a residential neighborhood in the northern city of Mosul as a U.S. convoy was passing”

Well aren’t convoys a common things around police stations, military recruit stations, hospitals, and training areas? Plus is this the only time troops were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and just “driving by”, I have never heard it told like that before.

So can someone explain to me how the “wrong place at the wrong time” works?

Answer by Wes
It was a weak attempt to blame the military while sympathizing with the bombers

Why are employers so uptight these days?

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Question by ▐▀▀▼▀▀▌ ►Scouser Ste◄ ▐▄▄▲▄▄▌: Why are employers so uptight these days?
I’m so frustrated with the job market.

I’m 19, I finished education only a year ago. Why do they ALL seem to demand experience specifically in that field instead of (like they did before) provide the relevant training themselves? It’s like a glass ceiling to get into a job with prospects. I just don’t see any way out. Even the NHS sets “no prior experience in hospitals” as a handicap for a PORTERING job? What? How can I get experience in hospitals, if I can’t get an entry level position?

I have so much to offer, but no opportunity to prove it.
For the record, I got an interview for a portering job – but was told my lack of expeience in hospitals made it difficult to employ me…

welcome to my world. i guess i assumed that once i graduated college, employers would be banging on my door dying to hire me…. lol it didn’t quite turn out that way. is there someone you know (a former boss) that would be ok with you “tweaking” your resume, to reflect that you have had some experience in the field you want? for example, even if you worked at burger king once before, you wouldn’t lie and say you were a manager, but maybe you could say you were a candidate for MIT (manager in training) white lies to get you into the job market never hurt anything, just make sure your references are aware and ok with what you say.

Are my child not quite ready for a wooden train set or an electric set or maybe have to tried these already?

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Question by Adelia: Are my child not quite ready for a wooden train set or an electric set or maybe have to tried these already?
I have 2 sons, ages 2 & 4. As a single parent, I was looking for something that would be an easy “add-on” collection for my children while spanning different ages.
A tiny bit of challenge to set it up the first time but it gets easier as one becomes more creative. They are both thouroughly enjoying the train set. They are also both prettyrough with toys and it is handling the abuse.
Are they not quite ready for a wooden train set or an electric set or maybe have to tried these already??

Answer by Reese

Are these things worth anything? A Martin Nascar toy, and a Bachmann Train?

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Question by Fang: Are these things worth anything? A Martin Nascar toy, and a Bachmann Train?
I was going through couple of things in my closet, and I happen to run into 2 things that I thought may be worth something.

1st thing I found was this little Nascar, probably about the size of a hotwheels car. It’s still in the package. On the package it has Number “6” and Martin. As well as Nascar, 2001 Edition Issue #3 and “Team Caliber” Pit Stop on the upper left corner.

Here are some pictures of it;

http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x123/Nick2314/101_0959.jpg?t=1290285096

The other thing I found was this train that runs on a track I believe. It’s still in the box, never really has been opened or played with. It was originally my dads. He bought it when he was 13, gave it to me when I was 14. He is now 51. The maker of the train is “Bachmann”, quality since 1833?

Here are some pictures of the train;

As long as it is in the package and perfect conditions, you’ll make a ton.

Electric trains rest during the mid-day lull before resuming their manic shuttling to get the 50,000 people at work back home again!
