Question: I recently evicted a few tenants from my apartment building. i have had some break ins and such and would now like to install some security cameras. I would like something that has the capabilities to record at night. I saw some that are wireless you can plug something into the usb port of the computer and then you can see the cameras on the screen. I would like something like that does anyone have any idea where to buy that and how much they would cost? I saw them on ebay but am a little weary about shopping on there. I would like a camera that is small enough to easily be hidden.

Hello Not all CCTV equipment is created equal, in fact there are many options that offer varying performance much like the automobile industry. In the world of CCTV you can find the equivalent of a $2,000 golf cart and a $350,000 Ferrari and everything in between. Both have 4 wheels and windshield but that where the similarities end, it’s under the hood that counts. Just like any other consumer electronic in the end you get what you pay for. Most retailers and sellers make about a 40-80% profit margin, this is after costs like shipping and overhead. That means when you buy a product that costs $100.00 the manufacturer usually has only spent $30 to build it which simply means it’s not a good product and will probably have a working life of about 2 months. There is a reason these products are 1/10 of the price of good and reliable DVR brand names. The type of seller these products attract are online sellers (ebay) and will make profits margins as low as 2% which means they can’t afford to offer good service or allow for RMAs (returns). Cheap products are like disposable razors they are NOT designed to last for a long time and you will end up replacing them every 2 months. Now some products can be made cheaply like ipod cases, screen protectors, and other simple products with no moving parts or electronics. DVRs need to be good quality as they run 24/7 (20X more than the average electronic device) and process anywhere from 30-480 frames per second which in a year is over 15 billion images, and a good DVR should last 3-5 years. A true DVR requires years of research and development to facilitate the seamless integration of both the hardware and software. DVRs are highly complex systems that must run 24/7, processing millions of images per day and are one of the few products that can’t be made both well and cheaply. Cheap and inexpensive products like Q-see, Swan, Lorex, and other low grade DVR’s sold by Tiger Direct, Newegg, Sams Club, are not used by security professionals and should only be used by hobbyists. Wireless cameras are one of the worst thing any one can do as fart as security goes. All wireless cameras under $500 (per camera) will either use 1.2 2.4 or 5GHZ and send Unencrypted video to the receiver. This means anyone with a laptop and a brain can use your cameras to spy on you and know when a good time to break in is or to spy on you. They also can be blocked with jammers you can by in ebay for 10 bucks. If wireless was safe easy and effective there would be no wired cameras the fact is there is wired cameras because wireless is not reliable, safe or affective. There are a few good wireless option for CCTV cameras but they can run anywhere from $500~5000 USD. http://www.videotransmitters.com/ (good wireless) Also as far as night vision or IR cameras go most do not give good images in the dark. Many companies claim good night vision but there are only a handful of brands who give night vision over 30 feet out doors. normally if a cameras is rated 150 feet of IR it will give you ok images at 30 feet at night and good images at about 20. Some good CCTV brands that I recommend are Bosch, Pelco, Honeywell and Ascendent. http://www.ascendentgroup.com (Great IR cameras) www.honeywell.com www.pelco.com/ http://www.bosch.com Two good economical DVRs I would recommend are Ascendent's AVP-4120 DVR or Pelco's DX-400. They will allow you to view all your cameras instantly from anywhere in the world using either IE, or a client software. The AVP-4120 uses the latest H.264 codec to improve streaming and recording time, and will allow PCs and Apple computers to remotely view cameras. These are the DVRs I would recommend that are good quality and affordable. Hope this Helps, If you need anything else feel free to email me at [email protected]

Well, you can do it all, at least in part, but you need to find the right university! I'll list a few that do offer decent acting programs (often both stage and screen), plus good writing programs, and in some cases, would also allow you to take classes in 3D animation. Note, however, that at some schools with top level acting programs (like NYU), you can't necessarily take classes in those programs if you aren't a theater major. It might, in that case, be easier to major in acting, and either dual major in writing, or minor in writing, so you can get into the acting classes. This is always a question worth asking of any college - if I major in X, can I take classes in Y? New York University Middlebury College UCLA USC SUNY Purchase (strong acting school, less so their writing program) Boston University Carnegie Mellon Fordham Florida State U U Michigan Ann Arbor Rutgers New Brunswick Indiana University Bard College Vassar Columbia University All of these have good-to-very strong theater/acting programs. All are strong universities which offer writing (some, like Middlebury and NYU, are famous for it), in some form, as a major. Many offer 3-D animation, but I prioritized that after writing and acting. Note that some of these schools offer more camera acting than others, so look carefully at that as well.

Check out Rutgers University. They had 5 campuses in one area. Now its combined into 3 schools...Rutgers, Rutgers school of biological and life sciences and mason gross. You can have a major in writing in the Rutgers part, either livingston, busch,college avenue or douglass (all girls) part and a minor or double major in theatre at the Mason Gross part! So you go to "two schools" at once but they are all in the same place!

Katharine Originally Answered: I have Trichotillomania. Can anyone offer good advice to help me stop pulling?
I understand everything you said because I have/had the same problem since I was in Primary School. Other people just don't get it. To them, compulsively pulling/plucking strands of hair to the point that it becomes a manifest problem may be the strangest, weirdest, wackiest thing that can happen. But to us, it is not something we can easily control despite knowing well that it is a detriment to our appearance, self esteem etc. The impulse comes as naturally as an ordinary person would seek the desire to satisfy their appetite when they're hungry. It's a predictable cycle of urge, short lived satisfaction and long term regret. I think it was since I started acknowledging my problem as a serious psychological problem that my condition started to see improvements. Note that I have not sought any professional help. Like you, I began doing some serious research and was instantly relieved to know that such a condition was recognized and that there was actually a medical term for it. I began to see the light in my condition when I realized I CAN resist the temptation by ruminating to myself every time the "urge" takes hold of me. I think of the numerous times I have succumbed to the temptation and reiterate to myself that if I begin plucking/pulling out my hairs again I will not stop until I have fulfilled my satisfaction. I think of that ugly bald patch of skin that would entail. My prevention method has generally worked and dramatic improvements have taken place. My mum now comments on how much thicker my eyebrows look (I should note that she isn't actually aware of my psychological condition, she just thinks I'm "weird") which gives me a boost and lots of encouragement to my self esteem and that adds to the effectiveness of my prevention method every time I use it. Good luck, I hope you'll find your way out soon :-)
