I'd like to read substantive writing about MMA that does more than just follow the news. If possible, I'd like to participate in thoughtful discussion about it. Ideally, I'd like a blog, column, or forum that gets updated regularly, but books are fine, too. [more inside]

How do you get a regular column/blog on Huffington Post, and how hard is it? It seems like so many people have one.

I have to read a lot of academic papers. They are usually formatted into 2 columns per page. This is fine if I print them out, but when I read them on a computer screen, it is difficult/annoying for me to scroll up and down - I lose my place easily (I recognize this may be unusual). Is there software out there that will strip the text from a pdf into one column (and maybe put all the figures at the end or somewhere)? Like the Readability
extension for text on the web, but for pdfs. Maybe a plugin for Adobe Acrobat? Linux or Windows, please. Thanks.

I seem to have volunteered to write a regular newspaper column on the Arts in my local community. I have a mentor who will find topics for me and introduce me to the right people. What I need now is resources / examples and anything that I might not have thought to ask about (including pitching to the paper).

I've been given the opportunity to write a weekly tech/computer/electronics column for my local paper and although I have plenty of column ideas I can't for the life of me come up with a name for it. So I'm asking the Hive Mind: what should I call it? More details inside. [more inside]

Excel help. In column A I have several thousand numbers. In column B I have several thousand more numbers, some of which are in column A. I would like column C to contain the numbers from column A that are NOT in column B. I would also like column D to contain the numbers from column B that are NOT in column A.
