    In what sense are we giving our country away?

  5. Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use. If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling. After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth. The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel. Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing. A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad. In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care. He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth. So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth. They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface. It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why. But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.

    You can make it by heating sweetened condensed milk for a long time, or substitute another caramel sauce

  8. The educational system in South Africa is the same as in many countries. I want to talk about what kind of educational system is in America. Kindergartens are not very popular in America. Parents prefer that their children study with their nannies or with them at home. Children go to primary school at 5 years. Children graduate from primary school at 11 or 12 years old. Children who are smart and who study for each class one year, finish school at 11 years old. Children who have difficulties with learning, and who repeat their studies in a certain class, finish school at 12 years old. Children go to secondary school at 11 or 12 years old and children finish high school at 14 or 15 years old. A high school has a duration of 3 years. For graduation from school, a student must write a graduation paper with which the college essay writing service www.paperial.com can help and a student must pass exams which belong to different fields: such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and so on. After a student finishes school, he or she can go to college where he or she will study for 2 years or may go to college or university in which he or she will study for 4 years. In order to enter a college in which students study for two years, or to enter a college or university in which students study for 4 years, a student must pass the entrance exams and have a card in which there are good grades received at school. After graduating from a college or university which obliges a student to study for 4 years - a student can enroll in a magistracy and study there for 2 years. In conclusion, a master can study 3–6 years in order to obtain a doctor’s degree.
  9. You can’t touch the source without reaching through the taint.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    "if the number of qualifying candidates is too unwieldy for a single debate, the Democratic National Committee said it’ll hold primary debates on multiple nights if necessary, assigning candidates randomly to the two debates" That opens up the possibility of a lot of mischief. " 1 percent support in three national polls or polls of early primary states, or raise money from a minimum of 65,000 donors from 20 states, including at least 200 unique donors per state. " What polls? Do candidate polls count? Who decides if a state poll is worthy of inclusion? Do polls which have more then a 4.5% magin of error count (many early polls are at or over this level although they are statistically unreliable)? How do you include candidates with one or two percentage support if the margin of error in even the best polls are above 2.5%?

    The casting thread

    My pick would be Eva Green. She's got a bit of that ageless look, she has a wider range of acting, she can take command of almost any scene she's put in, and given that she's French, she fits the Carhienen look that Moiraine was described to personify. Mila is great from an appearance standpoint, but I honestly don't think she has the acting chops for such a strong character that's supposed to mentor the leads. As for the Kutch... he would be extremely hard to take seriously as Lan, especially since he's too much of a pretty boy. I always pictured Lan as one of the action heros from the 90's like Sylvester Stallone. Honestly I think Josh Brolin would be a great pick for Lan. He might be a bit on the older side, but his performance as Cable in DP2 is kinda how I've always pictured Lan, a broody, stone faced macho man with a gravelly voice and a death wish. My main wish right now though, is to see Ken Watanabe as Lord Agelmar. It was a huge toss up between having him as Agelmar or Ingtar, and I'd still be happy either way, but after my latest reading of MoL, I think Agelmar would be the better fit.

    Neither did I when I looked for it. I had to get a grocery store manager to help me find it. Looks like soft caramel in a can.
  15. The end of book 1 is when the channeling and reactions happen almost at the same time. After that he doesn't get the side effects of starting to channel such as taking chances, trouble moving his limbs, etc anymore and starts to experience the filth/taint. So my guess is a channeler doesn't feel the taint until they survive the channeling and side effects happening at the same time part.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    Re-primary debates: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-dncs-debate-rules-wont-make-the-2020-primaries-any-less-chaotic/ Sounds fair? The early (6 person) 2016 debates on the democratic side were laughable, but that's an aside They are clearly motivied to have as inclusive a field as possible. The idea of multiple randomly-seeded debates isn't a bad one, but it'll make drinking games harder.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    Something I've been thinking about post-Bernie entering the race, though this article is about Warren: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/elizabeth-warrens-ideas-could-win-the-democratic-primary-even-if-she-doesnt/ If the policies which are primarily identified with one candidate make it into the party platform, does it matter so much who's on the top of the ticket? I'll allow that it does, clearly, but this is a question of degree.
  18. You saw how quickly the blight was changing just after the last battle, while RJ confirmed shadowspawn die if the DO gets sealed away. So just going by the speed that was seen right after the fight, without the DO's influence it shouldn't take too long for the blight to be gone. Also will Rand share the growing song? The interesting question will be what is done with all the land freed from the blight. We know Malkier is going to be reformed, but what of the other land? Will new nations arise or will the border nations expand?

  23. I actually think Jeffery Dean Morgan would be better as far as LOOKS for Tam or Gareth then Bayle but his acting/personality/mannerisms etc fit Bayle better. And for Thom.... Sam Elliot
