    Default when to use adverbs of time

    1) Can we use adverbs like today and now with present perfect
    eg He has gone to USA today.
    Is that we never use specific time with present perfect or can we use

    2) Can in one sentence there can be two different tenses.

    There are some adverbs you can use with the present perfect and some you can't.

    Of course
    Do you read much? All of your current questions will answer themselves if you find some good reading material and read a bit every day.
