This is a complicated matter to wash away any sticky liquid you may have in the keypad. You have to open the casing smoothly with exact screwdriver and unlock the front cover without breaking any locks or make any scratch to your phone and then wash the motherboard side keypad very carefully with only not too wet cloth and then the outerside keypad as usual. It might fix your problem.

But if you're not that much techy-man you should change the pad.

Nutrients dog must to have in their diet


Dogs need to have a balanced diet full of water, protein,carbs, fats/oils, minerals, and vitamins. Having a balanced diet will have your dog feeling healthy and happy. First thing you need to make sure is that your dog drinks water! Water is as important to dogs as it is to humans and dogs need to have water available throughout the day. Next, your dog's diet needs to consist of about 20-30 percent protein that comes from high quality sources like chicken and lamb. Protein in dog food should contain all the essential amino acids that dog require. The rest of the diet comes from fats and carbs.Fat is the main source of energy for dogs, supplying twice as much energy as protein and carbs. Good fats include omega 3 and omega 6. Although carbs are not essential in a dog's diet, they are used for energy as well and are a big part of the diet. Finally, when it comes to minerals and vitamins, make sure your dog is getting the necessary amount of calcium, copper, Iron, Iodine, sodium, chloride, magnesium andpotassium, Zinc, Vitamin A, VitaminB1, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, and Vitamin B12.

There are three brands that dominate the market for sports drinks: Gatorade, Powerade, and Vitamin Water. I would assume that Gatorade is the highest grossing out of the three, although I prefer Vitamin Water

Where do i add the water


A rice cooker is designed to heat the water to steam, infusing the rice (or vegetables) with moisture, and removing the excess water by evaporation. Your rice cooker may or may not have come with a steam tray (used to keep the items you want to steam out of the water, but still allow them to heat via the steam). It most likely did come with a deep bowl with a non-stick coating. This is where you pour the rice and the water. Make sure to put the lid on and turn it on when all ingredients are inside the nonstick bowl. Place the bowl inside the electric burner (or the cooker). I would add a little bit of oil to the water to improve texture and stickiness.

I dropped my blackberry 8520 and the screen has a line straight down the middle!!! i cant see anything..WHAT TO DO? the screen is white also


Sounds like you have a broken LCD screen. Somebody needs to open your blackberry to replace it. Go to your provider, they might replace the phone for you. If they refuse and If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is a Blackberry 8520 Repair Guide that shows how. Try to look for the Blackberry Javelin repair guide, it is very similar.

Dropped my storm in water :/


The best way to get any and all moisture out of the phone and out of under your screen, put it in a bowl of rice(uncooked) and it will soak up all the humidity. I did that with my blackberry and it worked awesome. However I can't get my buttons to work, I took it apart, but it is all dry.
