The following posted with Fr. George's administrative approval  -PtA


My girlfriend Erin has the same genetic bone condition that I have (osteogenesis imperfecta) and she is in this contest where, if she gets enough votes, she will get a vehicle that is fully modified which would allow her to drive for the first time in her life. Obviously, that would be wonderful because it would give her a level of independence that she has never had before. Plus, she is planning on moving here sometime this year and desperately needs a vehicle that she can drive herself in, not only to get around here, but also to make trips back to Indiana to be with her family. If you could, please click the link below and take the time to vote for her. You can vote again every 24 hours as well. Also, if any of you could share this link on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social networking sites that you use we would really appreciate it. I will also put a link in my signature for the duration of the contest to make it easier for those of you who are able to vote again each day. This is very important to us and would drastically improve her life and independence, so any help you all can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,

If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

In order to win, Erin has to have the most votes in her region. We are not sure how big of an area constitutes a region, however. Erin lives in Indiana, and I looked over the Indiana contestants and right now there are 4 people in Indiana that are ahead of Erin.

I hope she can win the van.

She needs to almost triple her vote within the next 20 days in order to win this.
However, that means I can only give her 20 more votes @ 1 per day.
Yes, Facebook seems the way to go.

Click the green "extra vote" button beside the section where you fill in your name, email address etc.  It pops up a question - if you answer the question correctly, it counts your single vote as two. Smiley

I gave her two votes because I answered the question correctly. It was so easy.

Hint: Click the "Extra Vote" button before you vote. Once you have won two extra votes, then fill out the boxes and your double vote will be cast.

Spread the word by posting a link on facebook, send out Emails, and tell your friends and relatives.
Many people probably do not know that they can vote (with two votes) every day.
May 10th is the final day, so we have less than 20 days.

Currently she has: 9,429 Votes

However, May 10 is less than 20 days away, and she needs between 20,000 to 30,000 to win.

You guys may not like it because it is a horrible forum full of crudity, but, at this point, your only hope at winning this thing is to post this on 4chan. It is probably the most active forum in the world and could easily help you win this thing in the short amount of time you got left.

Voted again, btw, I noticed that this thing works via IP address. In other words, if you change your IP address, then you can vote multiple times in a day, in theory.
Well if that's the case, then whoever wins this I would be highly suspicious of the votes.

If you have enough people doing that and Erin doesn't have people doing it, she has no chance.

Erin posted some results from the campaign. One person already had 40,000 votes two days ago. I shutter to think what that person has today. Yes, there might be a lot of cheating going on in these campaigns, but that is why the judges do not rely on the voting campaign only. Apparently those in the top 5 percent, where Erin is, are considered finalists. Our continuing votes will keep her in the finals. Certainly those who are wealthy can afford to purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

Maria, how are you getting updates from Erin?  I can't see any way of 'friending' her or getting a vote breakdown through the National Mobility Awareness Month website...

Hmm, seems to have jumped up by about two hundred or so since last night  Cheesy I posted this on another forum that I frequent, so maybe that had something to do with it.

That is great.

Her votes to date:

Erin Reid
Indianapolis, IN
11,475 Votes

It would be great if she could get 1000 votes per day,
but she is only getting about 500 or less per day.

May 10 is the last day, and that is only 12 days from now.

We can vote every day (with a double vote if the quiz is answered correctly).

Okay, I do not know much about Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), so I checked out the NMEDA website to learn more about them.

However, there were no articles that discussed the various lifts or what they did.
The information was geared to helping handicapped individuals acquire the right vehicle or device.

I looked at this page, and clicked some links, but I am clueless.
http://www.nmeda.com/what-to-buy/

Here are my questions:
a) What are bridged mechanisms?

b) Integrated manual backup systems are used when the power fails, so that outsiders can help the handicapped person get in or out of the vehicle, correct?

c) What are sensor threshold mats?

Finally, what type of lift feature warns users if the lift is not level with the floor of the van?
a, b, or c?

I think integrated manual backup systems (b) could be ruled out, and a mat (c) does not sound like a lift feature.

What is the answer to this question:

What type of steering aid is normally used with a low-effort steering system?
And the answer is: Deep-dish steering wheels
