• My friend was offered to purchase a High School Diploma. We took them to this house where this guy supposedly runs a home school.?

    We take them there and the house is in a sketchy neighborhood and they wouldn't listen to me about it being a possible diploma mill. They were referred to by a friend. They also have to pay for the diploma without taking any tests or classes. Is this diploma legitimate? Is this a diploma mill?

  • My boyfriend lacks ambition?

    (UK) Hi everyone, so here's the deal. I'm 18, currently sitting A-Levels. I want to go to university this year to study Psychology with Neuroscience and travel.

    (UK) Hi everyone, so here's the deal. I'm 18, currently sitting A-Levels. I want to go to university this year to study Psychology with Neuroscience and travel. I'm a good student and try my best. My boyfriend: he didn't get into the same College as me as he failed all but one of his GCSEs (C,D,D,E,E,E,E,E,F) and is now in a college notorious to have failing students who don't care. He wants to be a professional photographer and work for national geographic despite his only qualification in photography being at an E grade. He now does a level 3 BTEC in creative media and is resitting his Maths GCSE and Science. I have a job, he does not. He couldn't afford to buy me anything on Valentine's Day so I took him out for a meal and paid for it all. I get angry because I'm worried for his future. I tell him to try and he says "I do try, you don't see me at college working!" He doesn't seem to be taking things seriously and it upsets me because I only want the best for him. My parents get angry and tell me I can do better and I'll find someone better at University. I've told him many times how concerned I am with his future. He spends his time on the PS4 when he's not at college and be despite (according to him) applying to every job in town, he's got no job offers. Probably because of his lack of qualifications and work experience. I love him and want him to do well in life. How do I wake him up? I started dating him before I knew he failed. Before everything changed. What do I do?

    Today in class we learned about DNA replication in bacteria. I don't know why I would need to know any of this especially since I plan on going to Fashion Institute of Technology to major in Accessory Merchandise. All he talked about and kept repeating over and over again was the DNA replication is bidirectional, that is it proceeds in opposite directions and always in the 5' to 3' end. DNA polymerase III adds nucleotids to a fragment of nucleic acid called a primer. It only adds in the 3' direction. He then said that there are these enzymes called helicases that unzip DNA creating a replication fork, with two stands a leading strand and a lagging strand. The lagging strands have fragments called Okazaki fragments. A new RNA primer has to be laid down and the DNA polymerase lays down a new DNA. Finally DNA ligase links the Okazaki fragments in the lagging strand. Why do I need to know any of this stuff? Should we eliminate subjects like Biology from the high school curriculum or at least dumb it down?

    Due to issues I choose not to discuss, I am in the position where I have to get my GED. I'm not convinced my entire life is over and my future is doomed because at least I'm getting something, right ? I can't help but have this feeling that things might fall apart but I don't want to just dropout and get NO education. Couldn't I still self educate myself even after I've passed my GED ? I also want to be an example that a piece of paper doesn't necessarily determine the rest of your life but I don't want this to backfire. Any advice or words of encouragement?

What is the purpose of studying 18 hours a day? Even med school (at least from posts I’ve seen study maybe 4-6 hours a day), but 18 hours seems like wasting your day and life away

  • Can a dumb person make you feel, I don't know, stupid?

    Can a dumb person make you feel, I don't know, stupid? It just seems like anytime I'm arguing with a one dimensional person, I all of a sudden feel dumb or something. It's like they will not allow you to have an opinion or answer.
