Here are 5 things you should know.
1. If your teacher or professor doesn’t want you using Wikipedia, you can go to the References section and use Wikipedia’s sources.
2. You can read news articles behind paywalls for free by typing “outline.com/” before the link.
3. There is a flash game preservation project called Flashpoint trying to save as many games as possible before Flash dies in 2020!
It’s called Flashpoint and they have archived over 30,000 games all playable offline!
Here are some helpful links:
Game Master List – This is the Master List of everything they have so far. Curators are constantly working to add more and fill out the library so always check the master list before you request games.
Animation Master List – This is a list of all the Animations they have saved thus far.
Requests System – This page has links to a Game Request Form and an Animation Request Form. Please check the respective Master Lists before making requests!
4. Burn a jar candle for the first time until the entire top layer of wax has melted (at least a few hours) to prevent tunneling.
The wax that has already melted once will melt much faster next time. The image below shows what leads to “tunneling” of pillar candles: the second time around, the little melted wax pool from the first burn will melt first, then melt the wax around it, leading to the candle burning much faster downwards than across. And so on, every single time.
So the key is that very first burn! If the entire top layer of wax melts, then this entire top-level will melt more quickly next time, leading to uniform warming and melting all the way across from thereon out. This will take a few hours (a general rule of thumb is 1 hour for every inch in diameter), so make sure to make time for this!
Source, which also has instructions on how to fix a tunneled candle, but it’s much more labor and time-intensive than just preventing it!
5. Why insurance can simply deny paying for the ambulance ride.
Taking an ambulance ride to the hospital can be expensive and does not guarantee going straight to the back. But even then insurance (medicare/Medicaid definitely) can refuse to pay if you can walk. If you have other means of transportation. Or the illness started greater than 2 days ago and you called 911. Don’t think trying to fake any of that information will work either. EMS documentS what you say and what they see to include those things for insurance billing.
