User: In Science, a hypothesis is useful only if_____? A. it is proven correct. B. it can be proven incorrect. C. it can be tested. D. the explanation is already known.





Weegy: Answer: Hypotheses are generally considered useful only if they are likely to improve on the current body of knowledge on a subject and pave the way for greater knowledge to be acquired in the future. [ Also, a hypothesis is generally not acknowledged if it defies other commonly recognized knowledge. If a hypothesis meets all of these requirements, it will typically proceed to the hypothesis testing phase. ]

a hypothesis is useful only when it can be tested if it cannot go further the explination would be hard.

Hi deb, i have a question. my husband wants to have his own weegy account also, can he make one also? so we can both be an expert and work at the same time? is that possible? thanks in advance!

As far as I know you can't have two accounts for the same IP address. I suggest you send a message to the Weegy Team to ask them though. It may be okay if they know it is two people.
Added 9/26/2012 11:18:47 AM
Okay, i will do that. thanks! :)

Deb, they replied already. If i reply again to their email, would they answer again? Or should i use the contact button again found in here, i mean do i need to make another email? Because there are some emails that replies are not allowed, right. And do we have a list of what does each badge means? thanks again! :)
Added 9/26/2012 12:04:47 PM
Hi, deb, jonsyg asked me this also in another thread, so I am just going to comment here:

If they use two separate computers, they should have two different IP addresses. When jonsyg said they would work at the same time, I assumed they would be on different computers. I wonder about this as well. Can you please let me know what the Weegy Team says?
Added 9/26/2012 12:22:23 PM
@kaysha- yes we both have our own laptop so we are planning to work at the same time however Weegy team replied to my email already and said that we cannot log in or work at the same time but he can make his own account even same IP address. i hope it's okay that i ask you kaysha in different thread and i ask deb in different thread also because i wanted to ask those tenured experts already. by the way kaysha, do we have a list of what does each badge means? thanks! :)

What happened to me was a year ago, when I was just starting. My account was suspended. I emailed Lee, and he said that some experts within my network have been suspended. I told him that I didn't have any other account aside from andrewpallarca. They reinstated my account then. Since, they have replied to your email telling you that's okay to work within the same IP, I guess you're good to go.

jonsyg, If you let your mouse hover over the badges a tag will pop up with what they mean.
Added 9/26/2012 12:56:00 PM
Your welcome, and thanks for letting me know what the Weegy Team said. As far as the badges go, there is not list. If you hover your pointer over an expert's badge, it tells you what it is for. For instance, (L) badges are given at each milestone level. You get your first one when you reach level 1. (P) is for winning the monthly points contest. You can place either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Hovering over these will show you which place the expert got. (C) is for posting the most comments. You can rank 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. And (M) is for Moderator. There are many others, but you should be able to figure the rest out by using your mouse pointer. I hope this helps.

@andrew- thank you again. my husband and i wanted to work at the same time, Weegy said we can't. He can just make his own account with same IP as long as i am not logged in to my account.

@vanilla- thanks, tried it just now. fun! :)

@kaysha- no problem, thanks again for explaining everything. :)

jonsyg, you're welcome, it would be better to post all of your queries to the blogs in order to be addressed quickly by the weegy team.
Added 9/26/2012 1:06:24 PM
Thanks for helping out with the answers everyone. I went out for a while. Sorry about that.
kaysha, I thought if computers were all connected through a router with the same internet connection they would have the same ip address. I'm not extremely computer literate since I am old, haha.
Added 9/26/2012 1:48:29 PM
Yeah, they would have the same IP if they share the same internet connection, deb. I was just confused with Lee's explanation to me and to jonsyg because my account was once suspended due to some experts being suspended within my network (not IP literally, but the service provider itself) although I didn't have any other account. I'm confused now. Haha
Added 9/26/2012 1:52:30 PM
@andrewpallarca- I have my bachelors in IT. Two IP address can not exist on the same network. There is a difference between the IP address for the router(network) and the IP address for a computer. Every computer has to have a unique IP address to be able to connect to the internet.

@kaysha and deb, yes that's what i know also that if you are using same connection even different computers, you will have same IP address.

@andrew- i will do that next time, i want to directly ask tenured experts that's why i messaged you guys here. hehe because in blogs i posted one of my concerns before but i am not sure if i got the attention of tenured and weegy team. sorry if this is not allowed. thanks again to all! :)
Added 9/27/2012 1:28:24 AM
I thought it was like that too. Same connection same IP, to avoid multiple accounts in one connection.
Added 9/27/2012 1:50:25 AM
You will both share the same IP address if you share one internet connection. Try whatsmyipaddress.com and check your IP, and try it with another computer and laptop who shares the same internet connection, same IP address will show up.
