Newbie travelling to India

I'm contemplating travelling to India (New Delhi to start with) in January for ~10 days and meeting a friend there who is a naturalized US citizen who was born and raised in India. I know I need a visa in advance of leaving (gathered that much from the US State Dept website) but which kind? And: what else should I know?

Replacement Citizen watch strap that won't break the bank?

I have a Citizen Eco-Drive watch that I received last year, and I love it. But the leather strap is coming apart, and the only "real" replacement straps I can find cost $70. Are there any straps that will fit the watch's curved case without costing an arm and a leg? [more inside]

How to travel between USA/Canada as a dual citizen

DualCitizenshipFilter: I was born an American citizen, the son of a Canadian mother. A few years ago I applied for and received my Canadian citizenship, and was provided with my Certificate of Canadian Citizenship. I have never applied for and do not have a Canadian passport. If I were to enter Canada now (by air or land) what do I say, what do I tell them? Can I just show them my canadian card and be done with it? What about coming back to the U.S.A.? Can it be done both ways without either passport?

Voting turnout in different countries

“A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote in a national election” Why is there an apparent apathy of political participation in America, and to extend it a bit, how come voting turn-out is higher in some countries in others even if the countries in comparison are both recognized liberal democracies?

How to get licensed as a Citizen Arborist

I recollect reading or hearing a story within the past year or so in which I learned that one can acquire a permit or license from the city (I think it was Philadelphia, my city, but it could have been another city) that allows one to perform the duties of what I would call a "citizen arborist", e.g., if a tree branch were to be busted by a passing vehicle, said citizen arborist would be empowered to perform proper pruning on the spot on said tree for the greater health and well-being of the tree and its neighborhood. I find this so appealing and want to see if I can get that license, but I'm not sure how to start?

Dual citizenship (US and CDN) and security clearance

Can a dual citizen (American and Canadian) get a Secret level security clearance in the United States? I'm starting to hear rumors that they'll ask me to give up my Canadian passport to get the security clearance. And - by giving up my Canadian passport are they asking me to renounce my Canadian citizenship to get the security clearance?

How does a US senior citizen deal with insurance and health care while living in Canada?

My 83-year-old mom is thinking of moving to BC to be near me, which I would love. She's a US citizen. (I'm a US citizen, too, but I'm a Permanent Resident of Canada) Does anyone know how my mother would deal with issues such as insurance and health care? I don't think she'll ever be eligible for health care in Canada, so she would have to have something to fall back on if/when she needs health care.

How can I get French citizenship as a current US citizen?

French Citizenship or Residence

I am a United States citizen who is looking to move to France. I am currently living in the Republic of Ireland but I am finding it harder and harder to maintain legal residence (even though, my mother is remarried to an Irishman and my ancestry is Irish) It seems you either have to be offered a contract for employment or be a student to stay here. I HEARD that requirements for French citizenship or permanent residence were more lenient. Does anyone have any information on this. I am NOT "highly skilled" in the slightest, unless you consider fixing PCs and Macs a skill.
