Your Questions About Pass To Me

How difficult is it to pass the foreign service exam without a degree in international relations?

How difficult is it to pass the foreign service exam without a degree in international relations or related field?

admin answers:

It’s not that easy even with a degree in international relations. The test is scored on a curve so, only about 10% actually pass the written exam. So, if everyone is an Einstein the year you take it, and believe me, they aren’t all Einsteins, then only the top 10% of the Einsteins will pass. Too bad for the other 90% who are still Einsteins, just not the top 10 percentile. Then, of course, you got to get through the oral. So, you have to know how to talk and write as well. Because the oral isn’t just talking, any more.

Anyway, there’s no set path. Do you watch something other than Fox News? You can watch Fox and still pass, but you need to watch something else as well. Do you read? You need to be aware of current events, history and international relations, some economics won’t hurt either,but you don’t need a degree from Georgetown or Princeton to prove it, if you’re self-motivated. And if you speak Arabic, Chinese or Russian you get a few brownie points for that as well.

What is the best pass that a tourist can buy to have discounts in museums in London?

Im going to london next week and i want to visit museums there is any pass that can i bought to visit many of this and have discounts,i know there is london pass but its the only pass that can i find?In your opinion its worth it?

admin answers:

I looked at the London Pass and unless you are really wanting to see a load of the places on offer, it probably isn’t worth it. You could probably only manage two or three of them in one day as most are spread over a wide area. There are plenty of free things to do in London.

There is a Merlin pass which gets you cheaper entry into The London Dungeon, Madam Tussaud’s and the London Eye, that costs approx £50 per adult. Did it last week, but got it all free as we knew someone working for the company.

Have linked you to information on free museums, free art galleries and the London Dungeon page with pass prices.

Have a fun trip.

What could cause a person to pass out from having leg cramps?

My dad has passed out on two different occasions from leg cramps. I realize they are painful but I cant understand why he would pass out. Any help would be appreciated.

admin answers:

I’m not a doctor but it would seem to me that the cramps could be from bad circulation, hence lack of flow to the brain = pass out

Lisa asks…

Can the analog pass-through signal in a digital TV converter box be fed through the composite output?

Does the pass-through signal only work through a coax output from the converter box? On my VCR (with tuner) the analog tv signal can be passed through the composite cables.

admin answers:

A baseband composite video signal (or CVBS) contains video picture information only and does not include the audio signal and RF carrier. With respect to analog television broadcasting in North America, an audio signal is combined with a composite video signal and modulated onto an RF carrier to form an NTSC broadcast television signal. It is the RF modulated analog video signal that applies to the ‘antenna’ pass-through option on coupon-eligible converter boxes (CECBs) and not the baseband composite video signal, which has its own dedicated Composite Video Out connection on CECBs.

Your VCR contains an internal RF demodulator to extract the composite video signals (along with the audio signals) so that they can be recorded. The video output from your VCR will be a baseband composite video signal on the (yellow color-coded) Composite Video Out connection. (In some cases, if the VCR is equipped with a mini-DIN S-Video (or Y/C) Out connection, you may also have the choice of using a Y/C video signal.)

As it relates to coupon-eligible converter boxes, the RF-modulated digital ATSC and analog NTSC signals collected by a UHF/VHF television antenna travel along the downlead to the CECB. From there, if the CECB is so equipped, the analog RF NTSC signal is passed through the converter box, unaltered, to the Pass-Through output on the back of the converter box for connection to the RF antenna input(s) on analog TVs and VCRs. The analog RF signal from the Pass-Through output on the back of a converter box should only be connected to an analog “RF” or “ANTENNA” input on a TV or VCR. You should never connect an analog “RF” or “Antenna” television signal directly to a composite video input without first demodulating the RF television signal.

Robert asks…

How hard is it to pass your road test to get your license?

How hard it is to pass and what kind of stuff are they going to make me do? Also what are some things that I should and shouldn’t do? Any tips? I want to pass it on my first try, but I am quite nervous. I live in B.C., Canada btw.


admin answers:

Here are some tips:

Stop signs: Come to a COMPLETE stop. Not a rolling stop, but a COMPLETE stop.
Seat belt: Ensure it is on before you start moving. Also, ensure your instructor’s is on. Some will attempt to trick you by purposely not putting their own on.
Turning onto a street: Look left, right, and then left again to ensure it is clear.
If it’s raining: Wipers must be on, even in light rain.
Blinkers: Use them properly, a few seconds before you make the turn.
Speed limit: Ensure you obey it. For the test, do NOT go over the limit, even by 1mph. Simply stay right at the limit or a little bit under it.

Basically, follow your DMV manual. Ensure you know the rules. I will be honest, I failed mine my first time, but I passed the second time. It is not hard.
