What is a high speed usb host controller?
A hi-speed USB host controller is basically a 2.0 usb port that replaces the 1.0 usb ports that were created a couple years ago. It's faster than the 1.0 usb ports, its still the same shape, but 2.0 has more power and better hardware incorporated. USB 3.0 is also available that is much faster than 2.0.
That's the general term for USB2.0, it operates much more faster than USB 1.1 which is know as non Hi-speed.
To find out if you have Hi-speed USB2.0 capable hardware:
In Window XP:"Right click my computer, then "manage", select device manager and scroll down to USB controllers. Click the + then look for the word "Enhanced" in either of the host controller listed. If there's 1 with Enhanced, then you have USB2.0 capable hardware.

What is a conjunction?
A conjunction is any conjoining, connecting artifact, or can be the union formed by a joining or combining.
Astronomy - any apparent close approach of objects in the sky
Logic - A conjunction is a compound proposition that is true if-and-only-if all of its component propositions are true. It can also be the relationship among the components of such a proposition, usually expressed by AND or &/or.
Part of Speech - A conjunction is a word that links words, phrases, or clauses together. You would use it when you were writing a story or report. To remember all of the coordinating conjunctions, just remember FANBOYS [for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so]
Conjunctions can be any member of a small class of words distinguished in many languages by their function as connectors between words, phrases, clauses, or sentences (e.g. as, and, because, but, however) or can be any other word or expression that performs a similar function.
Conjunctions are traditionally categorized into several types: coordinating conjunctions, subordinating conjunctions and correlative conjunctions. Some examples of each follow.
* Co-ordinating conjunctions: and, or, nor, for, but, yet, so
* Subordinating conjunctions:because, since, while, before, after, unless
* Correlative conjunctions: if...then / either...or / neither...nor / both...and / whether...or /not only...but...also/ as...as
The coordinating conjunctions can be used to link sentences together where neither is subordinate to the other. Subordinating conjunctions introduce subordinate clauses. Correlative conjunctions come in pairs that must appear together in the same sentence.
Some conjunctions can also link phrases that are smaller than whole sentences. For example, the coordinating conjunctions and and or can be used to link almost any phrases so long as they are of the same type:
- nouns: I like [cats] and/or [dogs].
- noun phrases: I like [this cat] and/or [that dog]
- verbs: The cat [scratched] and/or [bit] the dog.
- verb phrases: The cat [scratched the dog] and/or [bit the mouse].
- prepositions: The cat climbed [up] and/or [down] the tree.
- preposition phrases: The cat climbed [up the tree] and/or [down the wall].
- adjectives: I like very [energetic] and/or [playful] cats.
- adjective phrases: I like [very energetic] and/or [extremely playful] cats.
- adverbs: It climbed very [energetically] and/or [playfully].
- adverb phrases: It climbed [very energetically] and/or [extremely playfully].
- sentences: [The cat climbed up the tree] and/or [the dog barked].
A conjunction connects words, phrases and clauses. The 3 types of conjunctions are coordinating, subordinating, and correlative. Coordinating are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. Subordinating conjunctions include as, since, if, although, and because. And correlative conjunctions come in pairs: either/or, neither/nor..

What is declension?
Declension organizes the non-verbal parts of speech so as to indicate case endings gender, and number. Case endings help relate the different parts of speech to the verb, and to the rest of the sentence. In the specific example of Latin, the cases are called as follows: nominative, for the subject of the sentence; genitive, to show possession; dative, for the indirect object; accusative, for the direct object; and ablative, for objects of prepositions. Gender indicates whether an object or person is feminine, masculine, or neuter. And number indicates whether the object or person is singular, in the case of one; or plural, in the case of more than one. In contrast to Latin, declension isn't strong in English. There are traces of its influence in the differentiation between singular and plural. There are even fewer traces in the differentiaton between cases. Nowadays, it tends to exist in the pronoun forms of he/him/his, I/me/mine, she/her/hers, they/them/their/theirs, and we/us/our/ours. And there are even rare sightings of gender, other than examples such as blond and blonde.
What is Blancita?
I've modified the previous answer here because it disregarded Spanish spelling, but was otherwise correct for the pronunciation "blahn-KEE-tah":
"Blanquita", with "qu" instead of "c", means "little white girl" in Spanish. The root word is "blanco"/"blanca" which means white. and the -ita is used to show affection or it could also mean little. Most people think this is derogatory or mean, but in reality, it's not. it just depends on what way it's used.
If you were asking about a word or name pronounced "blahn-KEE-tah", this is a good answer. I've never heard of "Blancita", which in Spanish would be pronounced "blahn-SEE-tah", and would be meaningless AFAIK.
