How do I get Google to fix incorrect information about a nonprofit?

I run a 2-year old nonprofit and the listing that Google created and displays for us on their search page is full of incorrect information that hurts our organization. It has our hours of operation wrong, it shows a picture of our facility that was taken before we were finished remodeling it, and it shows a logo that we don't use any more. How do these things fixed?

Help me get my face back please!

It appears that when doing a Google search for my name ('Tim Pollard') the result Google features is a weird combination of my details (from Wikipedia) but with an embedded photo of an entirely different Tim Pollard (a motoring journalist). Does anyone know how to change that so my photo appears with my details please? As a performer I want to make sure people know who and what they're getting! Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

old educational game on the apple II?

I'm trying to find an old Apple II educational game we used to play in school in the early to mid-eighties. Played in a first-person perspective, it involved puzzles that you had to solve in order to advance from room to room. I remember there being a wine cellar at one point, but not much more than that. I've looked in the Internet Archive and Wikipedia's lists of games, to no avail. This has been driving me nuts for years - any help would be appreciated!

Might As Well Face It, I'm Addicted To Gifs

My latest guilty pleasure is Tumblrs that use a crapton of silly, pop-culture-y gifs to give a humorous take on someone's job, like When You Work At A Museum or What Should We Call Stage Management. The problem is that those are the only two I know. Got any more recommendations?

How do I mix tape? (2015 version)

Of course, they used to be tapes. The last time I put a collection of music together for someone to listen to, I put it all on a thumb drive, then they just imported it all into iTunes. But my intended recipient doesn't have a desktop/laptop computer. Only an iPhone. I'm stumped. Thought of Dropbox, but... that's not gonna work. I could go iTunes gift card, then a list of music... but no. That's not a gift, that's a project! Halp?

Thing & Thing & Thing & Thing

This feels unbelievably trivial, but its ungoogleable nature is driving me crazy. What is the origin of the meme-ish thing where there are four or five characters grouped together with ampersands? The one I see most often involves the Game of Thrones direwolves, but I don't think it originated there. I feel like it's making reference to something I don't understand, and I should understand all the references. Help me out?

Best hypertext/wiki browser software/freeware 2015?

Creating a collaborative website, and one of my favorite tools in the original version of pbwiki is that you can simply type a word, click a button, and that word instantly became a link to a page of the same name. The updated pbworks doesn't do that, so I'm looking for a new tool. Example inside. [more inside]

1920x1080 LCD. Laptop graphics max 1366x768. Black bars top and sides.

New 1920x1080 HD LCD -- great. Can't wait to use it for my monitor. But -- INTEL graphics card tops out 1366x768, leaving *big* black bars top and bottom of screen, smaller black bars on sides but still annoying. Adjusted graphics using horizontal and vertical scaling from 0% out to 100%, worked great, filled the screen -- all better. Worked great, that is, until I rebooted the puter -- [more inside]

Can't zoom out on mobile for google sheets

A friend uses a Google Site to host a schedule for a catering company. They make the sheet in Excel, port it to Google Sheets, then link to it from the site. With a recent change within Drive, users have lost the ability to zoom out beyond to less than 100% on the schedule, making it more difficult to navigate. They can zoom in, but can't zoom any further out. Is there anything they can do to get this functionality back?
