How long does it take for your medical waiver to be approved by the US Military?
Thanks for the A2A! The answer is “it depends”. Some waivers are basically automatic approvals and done at the MEPS station while your physical is still in progress. Others may require an outside consult done later that day or in the days that follow. Still others require a medical,package to,be put together and sent to the doctor at the recruiting command for final adjudication. It really depends on what the waiver is for.
After filling out the application for TSA Pre-approved, how long does it take one to get it?
If your application status is "Pending Review" then your application has been received and is being processed. Please note that processing times vary by applicant, but on average you can expect your application to be processed for Global Entry and FAST within 11 weeks, and SENTRI and NEXUS 3-5 months. This includes vehicle enrollments.The vetting process cannot be expedited. If you submitted a renewal application before the expiration of your current membership, then you can continue to use your benefits until the renewal is finalized (up to 6 months after your expiration date).After the application has been reviewed, the status will be updated to either "Conditionally Approved" or "Denied" and a letter will be posted in your TTP account with additional information. This letter can be found under Notifications on the Dashboard.If conditionally approved, you will receive a notification to schedule your interview. It is important that you complete your interview within 365 days of conditional approval. Failure to schedule an interview in that timeframe will cancel your application and you will need to pay again and reapply if you still wish to be a member.

What can you take to clean meth out of your system quickly (wiki)?
As a pharmacist ( granted, a retired one )…I believe I can give you the best, straight to the point answer you require. If you are trying to pass a UDS ( Urine Drug Screen ), and only a UDS, without popping positive for methamphetamine…there are actually two proven ways to do this. The first , Find a psychiatrist who will prescribe Adderall for your ADHD. While Adderall is not exactly methamphetamine ( it can be argued that it could qualify due to some of the short chain molecular properties ), it IS definitely an amphetamine. And, in UDS's…they look for the broken down metabolites of amphetamines. If you have a prescription for Adderall…you have a pass.Second , The trick to all UDS's, is that they all test by looking for…or reacting to ( just like a litmus test ) a certain amount of those metabolites in your Urine. And, of course, they want that test to react to as FEW as those metabolites as possible. We're talking down to several “ Parts per Billion “ !! So, how would one make their Urine contain as few metabolites ( parts per billion ) as possible…in essence making there Urine as clean as possible ?? Simple…You flood your urinary tract with as much water as possible !! About an hour before your test, begin drinking from a gallon of water, one 8 ounce glass every seven minutes for around 30 minutes. ( At this time, you will begin to urinate quite often. Good !! That is the key !! You want your Urine to be flushed out of everything that was hanging out in your urinary tract !! ) For the last 20–25 minutes…drink constantly. Don't try to finish off the gallon quickly…because you'll stop urinating, and those metabolites will gather again. No…drink steadily and constantly, all the while urinating as often as possible.Now, if you are in Pain Management…this might not be the solution for you. For while you may show no methamphetamine metabolites…you will also show no metabolites of the medications the Dr. has prescribed you for pain !!This WILL work in any other situation. Good luck !! ( I would suggest not indulging for at least 24 hours before hand. Oh, and many labs and tests look for the ingredients in those herbal teas…i.e. Goldenseal )
How long does it take for working memory to fill up?
Working memory is more of a process than a physical thing. It is the interaction that happens between short term memory and long term memory. It lasts around 80 minutes.The basic process of memory is that a vast amount comes in through your senses and is very briefly (less than a few seconds) stored in sensory memory. Your brain decides the important elements on which to focus and forward them to short term memory.Short term memory is a bottleneck. It can only really process 5-9 (Miller's Magic Number 7) items at a time and lasts only about 30 seconds. It handles that information by using existing long term memories to provide context for manipulation and understanding. If you repeatedly use information while it is in that working memory loop it will have a greater chance of being recorded in long term memory and being recalled from long term memory because neurons will develop dendrites to associate with other neurons creating a reference path.It gets a little complicated because those 5-9 (or averaged to 7) items are not bits. They are not discrete pieces of information. Your brain can organize and repackage information into "chunks" and then your short term memory can handle ~7 of those chunks. An easy example is a 10 digit phone number. 10 digits is too much for short term memory to reliably handle - but we often don't think of them as 10 digits. For example, we make the area code one concept or chunk - if you live in New York where 212 is a common area code - you start to think of 212 as one piece of information, not three. For this to work well, you need to have those chunks or analogs pre-identified in long term memory.Another way we do this is by using patterns. That's why songs are easier to remember than speeches.It takes a lot of work to do this kind of processing. That's where the cognitive load comes into play. Cognitive load is like processing capability, much like depicted on this display from MS Windows:Everything we ask our brain to do uses up a bit of that capability. Here's an example.Once it reaches 100% - LEARNING STOPS. Learning can not recommence until the processing goes down. It can't just be consciously reset with a thought - we have to stop thinking about the material and do something else for awhile.This is an area of much study and there are different interpretations of limits and timing. There are two results that I have seen repeated in many studies:1) Learning can happen well for about an hour. It can continue but less efficiently for the next hour (this is partially related to that 80 minute lifespan of working memory). Much less efficiency for the next. By the time we reach four hours, we start to have negative efficiency and can actually prevent learning from happening. I have to be careful about the tense, here, because the actual learning may not happen until hours later, as the brain works on reorganizing the neural networks.2) The famous Rule of Three - if you tell someone three things, they can remember them. If you tell them four, they will likely just remember three. The key here is that we are talking about three ideas. You might have to provide three pieces of information to learn each idea.The fundamental thing that we have to draw from this, as instructors (or learners), is that learning will be most effective and efficient done in small pieces. If we want to remember a lot from a book - we are best reading small amounts (a couple of chapters) - stopping - letting our brains process that material and start to build neural networks. Those networks can be used to get more out of the next session.The best sources I can recommend to better understand these ideas are:Miller, G. A. (1956). The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information. Psychological Review , 81-97. Sweller, J. V. (1998). Cognitive architecture and instructional design. Educational Psychology Review , 251-296. Chandler, P. a. (1991). Cognitive load theory and the format of instruction. Cognition and Instruction , 293-332.
How long does meth stay detectable in your system through testing (wiki)?
The high produced by meth is is anything but “fleeting.” I think people here are confusing it with cocaine. Meth lasts several hours, and an average dose taken in the morning will last into late afternoon before it noticeably begins to fade. Very pure product will even inhibit sleep well into the night - long after the actual euphoria is gone. This longevity, or “legs,” as tweakers call it, is the reason many drug users switch from cocaine to meth. Cocaine: as exhilarating and brief as an orgasm…and within moments one is abruptly dumped into a miserable hell which only more cocaine can alleviate. Meth: not quite as overwhelmingly euphoric as coke, but still pretty damn good and lasts hours instead of minutes. As time passes and the drug is metabolized, the body slowly & almost imperceptibly returns to its normal state, and a slight residual feeling of well-being will remain until sleep (and possibly even the following day upon waking). Most people prefer this to the hours of desperate craving that follow a 4-minute cocaine high. Obviously chronic, daily meth users won’t get the same mileage, and will tend to use larger amounts with greater & ever-increasing frequency until they can no longer obtain any effect from the drug and must submit to the inevitable crash & suffer through a few days of sleep/food/abstinence in order to renew the cycle.Anyway, the answer to your question is three days.
How long will a medical waiver take to get approved for the military?
There are two parts to this:MEPS and USAREC MEDICALMEPS can be very unpredictable. Your waiver can go back and forth between the recruiter and the Chief Medical Officer for a number of reasons. This can go on for a week or two. The best way to help your recruiter fight that, is by requesting ALL your medical records from birth to present. Trust me, we are not doctors, we only request what they request from you.After all the hoopla, it may be requested that you go to MEPS and take a physical and you may be referred to a consult with a specialist dealing with your specific issue. Again, this can take another 2 weeks to a month.After the consult, the CMO will determine if you are qualified or disqualified. If you are disqualified they will then determine if the issue is waiverable or not. IF it is, THEN, your case is sent to the top Doc in USAREC.Depending on the case load. There are hundreds of cases going on at any one time from across the whole nation, the top doc has to review these each. It is at this point that the recruiter can tell you how much longer it will take for your record to be reviewed, because there are a certain number of records that can be reviewed per day and we know the ratio. So whatever day yours was turned in determines when it will be reviewed.Not as easy as most people think!
