Hi - I am applying for technical writing jobs in Toronto, and - like many people - I find that I don't have a clear idea how to write good cover letters. I am also not sure how assertive a cover letter should be, or how long I should wait before following up. I also wonder whether I need to explain why my job history is a bit convoluted. Hivemind, can you please help? [more inside]

"There was a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile. He had a crooked cane, and he wore a crooked smile."
Due to a recent and very vigorous visit to pukesville, I'm pretty sure that I've dislocated my jaw. Would a walk-in clinic or urgent care clinic (if those exist) be able to put my jawbones back in order, or does this mean a lengthy trip to the ER? I am in downtown Toronto. [more inside]
Alternative routes to Toronto for the Buskerfest. I'm in New York, I want to leave here early on Saturday morning. The trains are booked, the coaches take 13 hours and the planes are far too expensive. Can I get a train to somewhere else that's not too ridiculous, where I can change to get to Toronto? The Amtrak lady wasn't very helpful on the phone. Is my only hope a late bus (or late train) on Friday night? :(
I grind my teeth in my sleep. A friend of mine who is an Registered Massage Therapist ("RMT") tells me that even though I have a night guard I'll destroy the discs in my jaw by grinding, that the fact that my jaw clicks when it opens and shuts is VERY BAD, and that I need to get to an RMT pronto. The dentists at the clinic I go to claim they've never heard of massage as a cure for grinding. So I have two questions: is my RMT friend right, and if so, can you recommend a Toronto-area (preferably central or west-end) RMT who has specialized training in TMJ issues?
GTA: Fast and/or anonymous STD check in Toronto? Can anyone recommend a clinic in Toronto that has fast results on STD tests?

Filming on mass transit in Toronto, Canada. Legal? ... A friend of a friend of mine was on a Toronto streetcar when a fellow passenger complained about the delay to the driver. The driver threw a fit and decided the passenger had to leave or she wouldn't drive on. The passenger refused. The driver called an inspector. The inspector sided with the driver (of course). My friend captured this on her cell phone video. When the inspector sees the camera (which was in clear view the entire time) he walks over and smashes the camera out of her hand (he didn't ask her to turn it off first). My friend wants to post the video but is unaware if filming on the transit system in the city is illegal as faces are clearly visible. I saw the video and was shocked and want it spread wide. Legally, what's the situation? [more inside]
