There is no set age to leaving a child home alone, but the general rule for maturity of being able to, is around 12. It's the parents responsibility to assure the child is not left alone at risk, and children under 12 are generally seen as being at risk. Leaving your child at risk is considered child neglect. It's important to always leave, even the most mature of children with proper emergency contact information, and the place where you'll be. Make sure you set rules, and know that it's never safe to leave your children alone for a long period of time, and always call to check on them.

How do you get a lyre on RuneScape?

If you have started 'Fremennik Trials' you will need a lyre to play to get one of the people to vote for you. To play a lyre it needs to be enchanted. First, to get the wood for the lyre you need to cut a branch from the swaying tree east of relleleka. After you have obtained the branch you must use it with a knife to create unstrung lyre. To make it strung you need some golden leace. This can be obtained by a troll east of relleleka. After this you will have a lyre. To make in enchanted you need to get a raw shark or monkfish an place it on an alter that is west of the bridge that you cross to get to relleleka. A spirit of some sort will speak to you and enchant your lyre. K that's it. Add me on runescape. My username is blueking512. good luck!!!

How do you make the rocket in Pokemon Ruby go faster?

When you ask about the rocket in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, I assume you ae reffering to the rocket that it supposed to take to you to the moon so you can catch Dexoys. Many people belive this is true (like me) and some people don't. But, to make the rocket gain launches faster, go to a stretch of land (no grass) and tape down the arrow key pointing in the direction you want to go. Now just leace it overnight and it is okay if you run into a wall, because the rocket gains launches depending upon how long you play! Before you do this, make sure your gameboy is plugged in or FULLY charged, so you don't run out of go juice.

Is it more expensive to leave your air conditioner on or turn it on and off?

cheaper to turn it on and off. it doesn't work any harder cooling down a hot room than it does maintaining a cool room so it will run less total time if you turn it on and off. cheaper to set the thermostat higher than lower for the same reason, it runs less total time. Don't forget humidity is a factor. It doesn't take a lot of energy to cool a room, but it does take a lot of energy to draw all the hot moisture out. If it is humid, it will be cheaper to just leace the ac on and keep the room cool and dry as opposed to letting the room fill with moist air and then removing it. So: If it is dry, you could save money by shutting the AC off. If it is humid, not so much. It is cheaper to maintain a constant temp. A warm room increases the amp draw (hydro draw) on the A/C compressor. This is called the power factor. As a room cools the amp draw on the A/C drops. Leave it on at a resonable temp I disagree, regardless of the humidity or temp, you are removing it all day or once! Also it takes less energy to cool the air then it does to cool the concrete, walls, furntaure etc. so if the air is off the house gets warm the concrete gets warm and it takes more energy to cool that
