What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
Can someone breakdown how to solve this for me? 4x-3y=12? 4x - 3y = 12 3y = 4x - 12 y = (4/3)x - 4 at x-intercept, y = 0 0 = 4x/3 - 4 4x/3 = 4 4x = 12 x = 3 point of x-intercept is (3, 0) at y-intercept, x = 0 y = 0 -4 = -4 or an easier way to find the y-intercept is to look at the value for b in your equation y = mx + b, y = (4/3)x - 4 where m (slope) = 4/3, and b (y-intercept) = -4 point of y-intercept is (0, -4)
Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies? You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
We would love to go to the Shetland Islands but can not afford the price. Could anyone tell me where I would find a lot of ponies in? Scotland
Will Shetland and Orkney get their independence from Scotland? Good point, thanks for reminding me. Shetland is a Viking island and so too is Orkney - the very names have that ring of the Vikings about them. Indeed, the world's biggest Viking event is held each year on the Island of Shetland Up Helly A Lerwick Shetland http:// Shetland Times http:// Welsh Barbarian Savage

How to get from the Faroe Islands to the Shetland Islands How do I get from the Faroe Islands to the Shetland Islands or the other way round? Is there anything besides a flight via Scotland?
Where can I see Shetland ponies on Unst? I will be spending a couple days on Unst on the Shetland Islands next year. My wife is very keen on seeing some Shetland ponies, and I am wondering how to go about this.My research seems to indicate that Unst is a good place for this. Furthermore it seems that they are roaming freely and one can find them grazing at the roadsides. Now, by randomly looking through some Google Streetview, all I can find is a lot of sheep.So my question is, how do I go about to find Shetland ponies on Unst? Is there a high probability of us finding them at the roadside without looking for them or are there specific places (farms, parks) where one would have to go to find them?
Affordable yacht holiday around Cook Islands / Pacific Islands Does anyone know any affordable options for some form of yacht / boat holiday around the Cook Islands or other Pacific Islands? I'd really like to explore a bit off the normal beaten path with a bit of island hopping.I guess there might be private smaller yacht owners that occasionally take passengers on-board for a bit of extra cash? Any methods to reach out to such potential providers?

Mixing countability; how to correctly say "there is plenty of rice, earthquakes and typhoons"? In this question I wrote the following sentence, knowing full well that it has problems. Where I live right now there is plenty of rice, earthquakes and typhoons. Both earthquake and typhoon are countable nouns, while rice in this context is probably considered uncountable. I could split this up into two sentences, or separate the rice from the other two within the sentence, for example: Where I live right now there are plenty of earthquakes and typhoons to go along with the rice although I'm sure someone else could find a more graceful way to do it. There are some possibly helpful recommendations in this answer but I'm not sure how to apply them here. But here I am asking if there is a way that I can keep the three nouns as close together as possible.
