What is a negative aspect of being a judge?

Well, it is VERY difficult to even become a Judge. You have to first attend Law School and become an Attorney (the more experience, the better) (Law school takes typically 7 years) So let's say you're an Attorney for 5 years. That's 12 years right there. Then, to become a Judge you have to do many things (can't remember, but it's a laundry list) and the city has to vote for you to become the Judge. You never know what competition is with you, so all that training could lead to you not being voted in as the Judge. it would obviously be 1000x more difficult if you tried becoming a Judge in a major/large city - such as Manhattan, Denver, Tampa, etc. Becoming a Judge in a smaller city would be easier, but like I said - to get to the point is tough. You must have tons of time on your hands.

Parenting and Children

Is there help for young single mothers under 18?


Yes. Depending on where you are, you can search for support services in your local phonebook. Even some churches can provide services and housing for teen mothers. Your first stop, though, should be to the local YWCA or YMCA. They will have staff on hand to give you the help you need and connect you to the right resources.

There are also places that you can go to for financial support. One of these places is WIC if you are in America (see related link). In Britain, you can receive benefits and child benefits for your child once you are 16. If you are still in education in Britain, you can receive the EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance) which is up to £30 per week. There are also services such as CAP and Payplan in Britain to help with with things such as budgeting and bill payments. In America, each state and city etc. has its own way of financially supporting young, single mothers.


In most states you can call UnitedWay's 211, or find it online, and they will also be able to help you with finding any kind of services that are in your area.


What kind of regulator works with an IDI Ballistic BCD?

The BCD (buoyancy compensator/control Devise) low pressure line is connected to the second stage of the regulator. International Divers Incorporated devises are compatible with other manufacturers of two stage diving equipment.


Any regulator will work. It is not the regulator, but the size of the low pressure inflator hose. The low pressure inflator hose can simply be changed if there is a size (fitting) issue. This should not be an issue unless you bought a used regulator where the previous owner used a different inflator on their BCD such as an inflator you can breath from (which often has a larger diameter inflator connection).

How long does it take to become an obstetrician in the USA?

Undergraduate degree (BA or BS, 4 years) Medical school (4 years) OB/GYN residency (4 years) Medical school is very competitive. You need good grades in college and a good score on your MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) to get in. You must also meet all the prerequisites of the medical school you are applying to, which usually includes at least one year of biology and two years of chemistry courses. 4-5 years of medical school 2 years of foundation programme 7 years of specialist training studying Obstetrics & Gynaecology Your A Level and GCSE grades have to be very high to get into medical school because it is very competitive. Also to go to medical school you MUST do 2 Science A-Levels including Chemistry. So that's like 13 years minimum in total, it's really long but bear in mind that majority of the specialist training is actually WORKING with professionals in the hospital.


What personal qualities or skills do you need to be an obstetrician gynecologist or ob-gyn?

Brains and discipline. Get a science related bachelor's degree, apply to med school, do well enough to get a slot in a residency somewhere, and do your multi-year residency in ob/gyn. If you aren't smart or disciplined enough to finish a bachelor's in biology with at least a 3.5 GPA you probably won't cut it.


Here are the steps involved in becoming an OB/GYN doctor:

1.Pre-medical college degree: First you need to complete four years undergraduate college degree in related field to fulfill the pre-med college coarse requirement. You will then need to take MCAT and get good scores. You should do some health related research project or otherwise volunteer in an hospital or other health related field to improve your chances. Getting accepted into a medical school is the most competitive step in your career plan.

2.Medical school:Once you are in a medical school, you are one step closer to your career goal. You have already crossed the most difficult barrier. In your medical school, you should try to get more electives in OB/GYN related clinical rotations. You should develop a good relationship with OB/GYN attending physicians and talk to them about your career goals. Their recommendation letter will play a vital role in achieving your next goal- which is to get a residency training in OB/GYN.

3.Residency: Your residency application actually starts during the final year of your medical college. You have to finish your USMLE board exams. The exam scores do matter but your overall medical school performance and recommendation letters matter more than your scores. You have to apply for OB/GYN residency positions, get interview calls and give interview at a few places and then wait for the match. After the match, you will find out if you were accepted into OB/GYN residency. OB/GYN residency is normally for three years.

4.Licensing and board certification: After you graduate from your residency, you have to get a license in the state in which you want to practice your profession. Although not required, you will probably get a board certification in your field to become a recognized "medical expert". theres a place downtown town where the freaks will come around theres a hole in the wall its a dirty free for all when they turn me on when they take it off when they take it off everybody take it off

Veterinary Medicine

What are the pros and cons of being a veterinarian?


  • You are the leader of the team, master of your destiny. You can determine how many animals you want to see in a day, what type of animals you want to treat, where you want to work at, etc. If you don't like one area, or are ready to move on to something else, you are free to move and cherry-pick your new job.
  • You set your own hours - if you don't like working weekends or getting up early in the morning, you can find a clinic (or operate your own) that accommodates your preferences.
  • You spend your day working with animals, keeping them healthy and helping them when they are not healthy. Most owners are good people who want to do the right thing for their pets and trust you with their furry (feathery/scaly) friends.
  • You get to work on some really interesting cases. Every veterinarian who has been in practice longer than about three years has at least a dozen hilarious stories about notable cases, clients or pets.
  • You get to think flexibly and creatively when presented a difficult case or trying to keep medical bills within a client's financial means - there are a lot of simple methods to get a reasonable idea of what is happening to a patient without spending a lot of money, and you look like a hero when you can do this.
  • You are integrated into the community, even if you didn't grow up there. You get to meet about half the neighborhood as you treat their pets, and as you settle in you'll find you have friends no matter where you go in the area.
  • The pay is pretty good - average in the United States is about $90,000 per year. You won't be swimming in money, but you can make a nice living for yourself while still putting away money to retire someday.


  • You are the management, and if pay/benefits/hours/schedules aren't what your team members want, you are the one they are going to complain to.
  • While you may get some say in when you start working on a given day, you are there until you run out of patients to treat. Some days you may be stuck at the clinic working your tail off for 18 hours straight because you get one emergency after another and can't get off the clock.
  • You may have to work a significant amount of night, weekend and holiday hours depending upon the availability of emergency veterinary care in your community.
  • Most owners are good people - some are crazy, lazy, cheap or flat-out stupid. Unfortunately, these owners are also the time-suckers and will turn your 15 minute recheck appointment into a 45 minute full examination with radiographs and bloodwork, then complain when it takes 2 minutes to check out at the front desk.
  • You can't help every pet - some diseases are just too severe, some injuries too grievious and there are conditions that have no treatment or cure. You'll be trained to provide the absolute best medicine possible, but this is expensive and sometimes owners can't even afford $20 to euthanize the dog for humane reasons.
  • Euthanasia in general is hard - you may be putting down a dog that you've treated since it was an 8 week old puppy, or a cat that is an owner's last link to a dead loved one.
  • You are known as the veterinarian in town and will be fielding questions about "my cousin's dog" or "my roommate's cat" while shopping at the grocery or visiting the park with your kids. Particularly in a small town, you are effectively on duty 24/7.

What exactly is the difference between a midwife an obstetrician and a neonatal surgeon?

A midwife is a skilled birth professional who attends low-risk births either at home, in a birth center or a hospital. Some midwives gain their skills through apprenticeship and are usually referred to as Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). Many midwives are Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM), these midwives were first registered nurses with a bachelor's degree in nursing who then attended graduate school to attain a master's in nursing as a Nurse-Midwife. Obstetricians are physicians (either MDs or DOs) who chose to specialize in obstetrics during their residency. Obstetricians in the US often attend both normal low-risk births, and moderate to high risk births. However in most countries, including those in Europe, midwives attend most births and obstetricians are reserved for those women with complications. Neonatal surgeons, are unrelated. They are pediatric surgeons who specialize in surgery on neonates. A neonate is a newborn baby birth through the first 30 days or through the first 30 days past when the baby should have been born if he or she was born prematurely.

What degree do you need to go into medical school to be an Obstetrician?


First of all, before deciding what kind of doctor you will be, you have to get into medical school. This just requires an undergrad degree. Your undergrad (college) degree can be in anything you want as long as you take the required science classes while in college. I believe this is 2 semesters each of chemistry, biology, calculus, organic chemistry, physics, and english. So as long as you have those classes you could do anything in college (psychology, drama, history, biology, biochemistry, english, math, etc). However, majoring in a science field especially biology will prepare you better for medical school than some other majors. You'll also have to take a test called the MCAT (medical college admission test) which covers biology, physics, chemistry, reading comprehension, and writing. This is a national test taken be all prospective medical students while in college.

Once you get into medical school then you decide what kind of doctor you want to be. In your fourth and final year of medical school you apply to a residency program. This determines what kind of doctor you will be one day. If you do a residency in obstetrics and gynecology you will have a 4 year reasidency and upon completion of that you can be an obstetrician.


Fine. What that person was trying to tell you was for people who understand anything about obtaining a degree in medicine. For you, who has no idea what you're talking about, it means this:

You need an undergraduate degree, which is a bachelors degree, which is 4 years of school. You want something in the field of science [ie: chemistry, biology, or any of the sub-levels of those categories]. After that, you must apply to medical school, which should be about 2 years of classroom work, followed by a residency, which can take up to 4 years. All in all, about 10 years of school, is that a straight-forward enough answer?

thank you, this helped alot! :]
