What is a high speed usb host controller?
A hi-speed USB host controller is basically a 2.0 usb port that replaces the 1.0 usb ports that were created a couple years ago. It's faster than the 1.0 usb ports, its still the same shape, but 2.0 has more power and better hardware incorporated. USB 3.0 is also available that is much faster than 2.0. That's the general term for USB2.0, it operates much more faster than USB 1.1 which is know as non Hi-speed. To find out if you have Hi-speed USB2.0 capable hardware: In Window XP:"Right click my computer, then "manage", select device manager and scroll down to USB controllers. Click the + then look for the word "Enhanced" in either of the host controller listed. If there's 1 with Enhanced, then you have USB2.0 capable hardware. See the related link for more info about USB1.1 and USB2.0

What is the meaning of 'Have you ever been bonded'?
The concept of employee bonding is really an insurance matter relating to the employer’s efforts to protect itself against wrongful acts by its employees. In industries where employees have direct access to money or to property, the employer will often be keen to protect itself against the impact of employee theft. Also, certain businesses will be required by their customers to provide proof that they are bonded. For instance, customers of commercial cleaning companies might demand the cleaners be bonded. This provides both peace of mind (that the cleaners are trustworthy) and financial protection in the event of theft.

What is declension?
Declension organizes the non-verbal parts of speech so as to indicate case endings gender, and number. Case endings help relate the different parts of speech to the verb, and to the rest of the sentence. In the specific example of Latin, the cases are called as follows: nominative, for the subject of the sentence; genitive, to show possession; dative, for the indirect object; accusative, for the direct object; and ablative, for objects of prepositions. Gender indicates whether an object or person is feminine, masculine, or neuter. And number indicates whether the object or person is singular, in the case of one; or plural, in the case of more than one. In contrast to Latin, declension isn't strong in English. There are traces of its influence in the differentiation between singular and plural. There are even fewer traces in the differentiaton between cases. Nowadays, it tends to exist in the pronoun forms of he/him/his, I/me/mine, she/her/hers, they/them/their/theirs, and we/us/our/ours. And there are even rare sightings of gender, other than examples such as blond and blonde.

What is Blancita?
I've modified the previous answer here because it disregarded Spanish spelling, but was otherwise correct for the pronunciation "blahn-KEE-tah": "Blanquita", with "qu" instead of "c", means "little white girl" in Spanish. The root word is "blanco"/"blanca" which means white. and the -ita is used to show affection or it could also mean little. Most people think this is derogatory or mean, but in reality, it's not. it just depends on what way it's used. If you were asking about a word or name pronounced "blahn-KEE-tah", this is a good answer. I've never heard of "Blancita", which in Spanish would be pronounced "blahn-SEE-tah", and would be meaningless AFAIK.
