Facebook name check! Journalist/sex worker! Who should I email at FB?

I've been Facebook name checked, and I don't want to use my legal name - my Facebook name (shown on my profile) is my authentic name. I understand that public figures can contact someone at Facebook with clips and screenshots showing use of the name, and get to keep their authentic name. Who at FB is the best person to contact?

The Footprint on Crusoe's Island & its use in critical theory

The single appearance of the footprint in Daniel Defoe's 1719 novel, Robinson Crusoe, is perhaps one of the most famous events in all of literature. I am interested in who has referenced it, and for what ends, especially in critical theory. I also wonder whether Michel Foucault's famous closing lines to 'The Order of Things' is a subtle reference to the appearance of that footprint? Can other allusions to 'the figure of man' and marks in the sand be traced back to Defoe's novel?

Who took this photo?

I'd love to see more work by this photographer. I've tried what I think are likely google searches and have found nothing - maybe I'm using the wrong search terms, but if anyone knows or has suggestions, I'd be grateful! Photo here.

Need a Word specialist. Difficulty captions

I'm working on a book to Microsoft Word. Every time that I go to do a figure (which gets added in the actual page layout process), I have to repeat the figure call out three times. Once in the text, once in production directives, and once in the caption. Some chapters have as many as 60 figures. Meaning if I want to rearrange things, that life becomes very painful, and fraught with mistakes. It seems like word has the ability to put in to track of this, but not triplicate. Hopefully, someone reading this will have expertise to tell me how this is done. I'm using word 2011 on Mac.

Where can I buy this posable robot?

A friend of mine has this neat posable robot, which I've been using to mess around with stopmotion animation. However they don't remember where they bought it. Here's a photo of it. Do you know where I can buy it? Searching Amazon didn't bring it up.

Photoshop for Biologists

Photoshopfilter: I am making a figure for publication in a science journal. Is there a software or cellular components package that I could use to build diagrams of cells with mitochondria, organelles, receptors and signaling pathways? I am looking to make a schematic that look similar to this (click figures/tables to see it) that I can alter. Is there a components package I could use to build these without making it all from scratch? [more inside]

How do I get figure wrapping and captions to behave the way I want them to in Latex?

So I'm writing a proposal in a mock NRSA (NIH) grant format and I used a Latex template I found here. But for some reason, my figures are now not getting wrapped by text, and the figure captions extend well beyond the figure width on either side. What to do? [more inside]
