  • How are CDs labeled for customers to find them at a record/CD store?

    I work at the library and say a CD has 781.66 tmo on it. And we are stopping that method of labeling the CD bc it's only convenient for us workers when.putting away. Nobody looking for cd is gonna locate it that way. Bit.I have gotten my music digital. Dice it was legal and CDs were less bought in-store. So I don't remember how they label at a store to help customers browse and and find a very specific CD they want. Like if I wanted to find enya and then beyond that specific CD of "a day without rain" would I look under "e" then look for her name and grouse her CD collection till I found that CD? It's been so long. I think that's the method we will use to browse the CD section bc it's easier for customers. Only us librarians use the dewey system to locate a CD. Same with DVDs but that's easier. I was still using block buster up till it went out of business but wasn't using physical CDs for a while. I was looking g for help to make sure I understand this. We aren't switching to this for a bit but it was discussed today.

  • How much children's Benadryl can I give my tenpounder dog?

    I am only asking this question simply because I'm not finding good information on the Internet and this isn't because I need a doctor and I'm being dumb and asking Internet before I go call a doctor I've seen people do that I will admit I've seen people do that they say my kid took this or this or this what do I do and people will say well first of all you're an idiot you need to call the hospital don't ask people on the Internet because they may take days to get an answer to you idiot you know those are stupid questions I'm not doing anything like that I have children's Benadryl it says I can give my 10 pounds dog 1/4 of a children's Benadryl which is 12.5 mg but I did not write how often a day do I did the 1/4 tab and this was several months back so I don't remember and I can't find anything on the Internet that tells me all I'm finding is information for an adult dose so I'm curious what everybody knows I know that for an adult dose which is 25 mg you give 1 mg per pound of dog weight and I don't know my mouth well enough to know what that means for 12.5 milligrams of medicine in the chewable tablets I must have figured that out to 1/4 tablet but I did not write down if that's a quarter tablet every four hours or every 12 hours or every 24 hours or what so that's what I'm looking for the pill is 12.5 mg total and if I were to break that into 1/4 pieces for a 10 pound dog when she gets anxiety or allergies, how often a day can I get her one of those pill quarters?

  • Why do I have gnats that accumulate on the inside of my fridge raider door at the base?

     I have a few gnats fly around my apartment nothing special but they like to buzz near my nose and my mouth and I've heard if you have a gnat problem that likes to go around your nose and your eyes and your mouth and ears then it's probably fungal gnats not regular gnats. And I read that Vahe like moisture well I had a couple in my sink I killed them off with kitchen cleaner and I have not seen them come back since but after I did that I noticed there was like 20 of them crawling around on the inside of my fridge door and I don't have any rotten food I don't have any food that's days old and needs to be pitched or anything. I took everything out of the fridge end used kitchen cleaner and wiped out the gnat problem. end an hour later there were three so I did it again and the rest of the night they were fine and then the next day the same thing about 20 maybe more rolling around on the door at the bottom and going underneath my Pramheda store but I don't have any rotten produce etc. I took everything out yet again and I did a thorough cleaning of the walls and everything and I looked behind the fridge nothing. but every day I have to do it again and I'm baffled. please, any idea why and how they get killed permanently and stop coming back?

  • How do you clean store-bought mung bean sprouts?

    is the only method for rinsing them? And how do you reneseme I'm seeing a whole lot about how to grow your own and then after they grow to a certain point then you pick them and wash them but I want to know how to wash store-bought correctly what's the method for doing that do you wash them with vinegar water like you do with certain other fruits and veggies? Or do you just rinse them with water only and how long do they have to be rinsed ? And am I supposed to boil them I'm pretty sure I remember someone telling me you're supposed to boil them but can I just rinse them and put them in a Ziploc bag? I saw something briefly they are supposed to put paper towels in the bag and then loosely put the clean sprouts on top of the paper towel and then loosely put another paper towel on top and again another couple handfuls but you don't want to make the bag incredibly full and put that in the fridge but I don't know I've never seen that before so I'm asking what do other people do? Do I boil them after putting them in the sink to rinse and then wait for them to cool before putting them in the fridge or do I just rinse them and go straight to the fridge and then boil them before I eat them and how long do I boil?

  • Can I make all-purpose flour with tapioca starch coconut flour and almond flour?

    I've heard you can use those ingredients to make all-purpose flour but thing is I don't know if you can use that exact combination I've read cassava not necessarily tapioca even though it's the same plant but one is the sturgeon one is the actual flour end the thing I read also said arrowroot which I don't have all I have on hand is coconut flour almond flour and tapioca starch and I'm curious if I can use just those three as a blend to mix if I'm just doing something quick that calls for all-purpose flour and I can just mix that up but I don't know what the ratios are I know that you use quite a bit less coconut flour so if anybody can give me some advice or if anybody has a better idea maybe I could do something different next to make it Kaleo/AIP version of all-purpose flour . And if you think there's a better combination of grain free flours to make into a Kaleo/AIP all-purpose flour let me know I just would like some kind of all-purpose flour that I can use for anything where I don't have to worry about a little of this and a little of that I just have one already mixed up that I can just grab and go that works for many things that would work like one to one when a recipe calls for all-purpose flour. Thanks everyone.

  • Is it normal for my dog to still see fleas and scratch them 12 hours after taking k9Advantix 2? ?

    I know my dog is 11 pounds evenly and she supposed to be between four and 10 pounds according to the box but she's normally easily anywhere between 10.0 and 10 point 6 pounds because she has to take medicine that is specific everyday but I figured she can probably still be okay and that flea medication still probably work even though she's right evenly at 11.0 pounds but it's been 12 hours since and I can see a lot more fleas than I thought she had I thought she had maybe one or two here and there but it looks like I saw five or six that I actually killed and smashed and she still scratching as if she's itchy is this normal? Can she eventually stop scratching ? How long will it take for them to die? I ran 12 hours after dosage is when they die. but I've also read they can be a lot more active due to the medication after it affecting them. Just curious. it's been a long time since my dog really had to worry about fleas that bad so she really doesn't do flea medications too much because she's just decent. and I usually use frontline as well but I tried Advantix. Just curious. Thanks everyone.

  • How to make AIP all purpose flour with combo of almond and coconut flours? ?

    I would like to make a recipe that calls for condensed cream of chicken soup but usually condensed soups have wheat so if I were to make an all-purpose flour AIP friendly how would I do it? As far as how would I do it for the substitution of the all-purpose flour needed in the soup recipe to make it condensed? I read this but I don't know my math very well: 

    1 cup all-purpose flour = ¼-1/3 cup coconut flour. Coconut flour can be baked at the same temperature as other recipes, no need for adjustment. The best ratio is 3:1 almond flour to coconut flour. This low-carb flour substitution closely mirrors all-purpose flour without the need for additional eggs.

     The recipe I want to do for homemade condensed cream of chicken soup says 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour but if I were to make it up and put it in a jar so I could have enough to just scoop as needed what would be a good ratio? What would be like a good combo I don't know my math very well and I also know I've only worked with coconut flour once but I do know that it takes a hell of a lot less coconut flour than it does any other flour. So if the ratio would be like three to one what does that mean and what would be a good mixture if I were to put it in a 24 ounces spaghetti jar to have for later so I could just scoop this AIP all-purpose flour that I made when I need it for other things that call for all-purpose flour?

  • What does it mean if my home phone rings three times but feature ring is half a ring? ?

    It's like three different times today my phone would ring on the half rings it was three out of four rings but it would be half rings like "rin -rin- rin-" and finally the third time that it happened around 8 PM this evening I decided I was gonna pick it up and make sure my phone is not having issues and it was all crackle and I said hello three times before somebody answered and said that they were from farmers insurance and I was like nope and hung up on them but I take the phone back up and it had a regular dialtone. I told my dad about it because he's a tech expert and he said his cell phone was doing that to his cell phone was ringing just like that and when he would get a vibration for a text it would only be half of the vibration tone thing and he thought it was just his phone and we both were thinking that's a little weird but we don't have any explanation for it or any ideas why. Is anybody else having issues with this and does anybody know why? will it just go away?

  • Do Japanese sweet potatoes taste like regular sweet potatoes or more like a regular potato?

    I got some kind of a potato one time at my local farmers market store it was a store called sprouts farmers market and it was in the potato section over in the produce called a Japanese sweet potato and I thought what's this? is it anything like a regular sweet potato? but I wouldn't know until I got home and tried it once I cooked it I realized it tasted a lot more starchy and less sweet but still had a hint of sweetness mostly starchy whereas an orange sweet potato is not start and does not taste like a potato it's sweet . So I was very thoroughly happy because I can't have night shades. But I don't remember bc I also saw something at that store called "fresh white sweet potatoes". I bought it but haven't tried it. I read just now that Japanese sweet potatoes are sweet and are very good desserts but I thought the one I bought called a Japanese sweet potato was starchy sweet and had white flesh. just now reading about the white sweet potato it's got a very pale skin that makes you think of a regular potato but it's very bumpy and shaped like a sweet potato but skinnier and longer and it does have a white flesh I believe and it is claiming to starchier than your typical sweet potato. What is the best sweet potato survive that has the most starchy flavor the least sweetness and a good substitute for regular potatoes if I can't have nightshades ? Because I want to have potatoe soups and vegetable soups with this in place of regular potatoes and I need something very starchy.

  • What is MCM Client and why does it randomly install on my phone?

    I have sprint and I have sprint and a Samsung Galaxy S10 E. and I have never noticed in my life the phone doing this but it just recently about a week and a half ago started downloading this thing called MCM client and when I did my research into what exactly that was it is a mobile installer or something and apparently Josh can use that to check up on the clients information or something of that nature and send you documents through your phone etc. etc. but that's none of their business to do that is a question that as far as I know . But anyway apparently the phone company uses that to get information about how well my phone operates and not to get personal information about me but to get information about the phone such as operating status and things that it learns to help make the phone a better phone for its customers but again I think it's pushing that foundry… Crossing the line almost where it's like I don't know if I want the phone to be able to do that stuff . Do I really need it and is there a way to stop the MCM Client from installing itself? like I was pretty sure I didn't want that and I clicked Force stop in the settings because that was the only thing I could do for this app but now it's reinstalling itself and every time I try to click on it it says please wait...installing. Is there anyone that have any idea on this that can give me more information?

  • Why would someone get a nasal endoscopy other then to look through your swollen or infected sinuses?

    The last time I went to the G.I. he did an upper endoscopy he did an upper G.I. scope from my throat because he was looking for inflammation because I've had heartburn since I was four and I really never done anything about it I mean I'm always taking whatever medicine the doctors would give me but Ive had pretty life-threatening heartburn and never really done anything like I said beyond whatever medicines and it's never worked. so I went to get a upper G.I. scope last year and they said they found a little bit of inflammation from heartburn and they put me on pantoprazole and Zantac but they took Zantac off the shelf so it's now Pepcid. But now I'm severely in pain, the worst heartburn ever in my chest, my back is killing me from pressure associated with the heartburn and I haven't gone to work in a week. the last time I was at the endoscopy appointment he clearly told me before I did the scope down my throat that if this doesn't work we will have to go up through your nose but I thought that was a little odd. I'm concerned about having to do that given that they probably need "more" since this is bigger than the last time I went. But I'm not seeing a nasal endoscopy for anything other than sinus problems or an infection in your nasal cavities or things like that. Nothing you would get a nasal endoscopy for has to do with your throat or your chest or your stomach. At least I didn't see anything. Ideas?

  • Can angina cause your right arm to feel like a pinched nerve in the bicep? ?

    I might possibly have angina I saw my general practitioner who said I might need to see the gastroenterologist but I have an appointment for him on the 28th it's gonna be telemedicine or telehealth whatever it's called but I for the last week straight have been having the worst case of heartburn and on occasion indigestion and I can feel the pressure from the heartburn in my back preferably on the left side but it can be the holdback. and as I sleep sitting up the back pain is worse but if I lay down the heartburn gets severe and a couple months ago I was crying all through the sleep and my GP on Thursday said since I had a G.I. scope a year ago and found mild inflammation this might be something to look into again. and we temporarily switched my medicine for heartburn to Nexium until we see the G.I. just because we want to see if maybe that helps and then let him know and see what he thinks. but sometimes at night I feel a pinch nerve in my right bicep when I sleep but it's not that bad it just feels kinda like poor circulation I don't know . I feel like this might be angina and that I should mention that possibility to the G.I.. any suggestions? I really can't eat much more than like 1/4 cup of something all day everyday without feeling worst heartburn. Any suggestions.

  • how to connect my plex media account to my laptop?

    i wanna sit in bed and watch everything that is loaded on my plex server from my laptop. i have it connected from the desktop to my roku on the tv but i can also watch it on my phone. i dont have a premium acct just the basic. now i wanna do this on my laptop. so i went to the web and downloaded the plex media to my laptop and logged in. im still logged in on my desktop and now also on my laptop. it recognizes on the laptop that im using  the laptop for the plex but there is no content. so it also tries to connect to the desktop bc im using the same network. it tells me that its not a secure connection and i allow it anyway. so it then works for like 10 seconds and says couldnt find content. i try and try and i even see that the desktop is allowed when i look for allowed connections. it shows that the desktop, the laptop, the phone and the roku are all allowed and i dont wanna disable them. so why cant the laptop connect to my desktop where all the content is if my phone can? im not going outside the wifi range. i would need to have a premium for that i am just in the next room on my bed trying to use the same server but on my laptop. any help is greatly appreciated thanks. 

  • Is there such thing as a COVID approved facemask that allows you to put a cold compress/ something when you're outside?

    Somebody threw the idea at me and I had no idea if such a thing existed in either today they were just asking it would be nice if they had such a thing where you could put like us gel pack inside to keep your face cool it wouldn't touch your face but it would allow for the places around your mouth to feel cool and I was like I don't know if that exists and they were like we should create that if it doesn't. does anybody know if there's such a thing? because I was thinking that be a great idea for when you're working long hours outside or in a factory where you can't keep cool.
