To understand this concept you have to understand the different types of tv. First you have CRT (cathode ray tube) This type of tv is usually interlaced and is the style that most people have. It has been around since the beginning of TV. The next style is the LCD/Projection/Plasma. These TVs are all progressive or non-interlaced. Cathode Ray Tubes display a picture by shooting a cathode ray at electrons giving you a picture. The cathode ray scan down the screen in lines. If it scans interlaced it will scan lines 1,3,5,7 etc. and then it will go back and scan lines 2,4,6,8 etc. Because of our mental ability to "fill in the gaps" we percieve it as an uninterupted picture. Non-interlace pictures scan all lines from top to bottom. Progressive scan gives you a higher quality image but it is harder to maintain brightness a constant picture because it takes longer to get through all of the lines than just half of them. This scanning rate is also called the refresh rate. Plasma screens and LCD essentially refresh all of their pixels at the same time so they are neither progressive nor interlaced.

What does it mean when your crush gives mixed signals but already knows you like them?

It could mean a number of things. One thing that you should definitely consider, though, is that they aren't mixed signals and you're just grasping at straws because you're desperately looking for any indication that your feelings are returned. The fact that they're "mixed" might mean your crush is just being normally friendly, realizing that you've taken it the wrong way, and then overcompensating by being harsh.

How do you execute hand signals in a volleyball game?

If you mean between the players on a team, then the signals have to be learned by all of your teammates. Once everyone learns what they mean then they will know to look for them and what they mean. As for "How do you execute them?" Very quickly. It's a fast sport. What really works better than hand signals because you are busy watching the ball and the other players is voice signals. Agree on words that can be called out. "High", "Low", "Spike". Whatever words you want.
