Inexpensive short term furniture rental?

Is there even such a thing? Student intern in northern VA needs bed and sofabed for only 3 months and furniture rentals are really expensive. She doesn't need to buy furniture because we cannot hall it across 4 states and we have no where to store it at our house. Any suggestions?

Physician titles in medical hierarchies around the world?

In the USA, doctors in academic centers are interns (first year trainee), residents (subsequent year trainee), attendings (completed training), fellows (attendings who are further subspecializing and revert to trainee status). Also, leaders of primary teams and consulting services are both called attendings. What's the terminology in other countries? I'm most curious about English speaking countries (registrars? consultants? LMO?) but would also enjoy hearing about others also!

Creating an internship for a small-budget documentary

I'm making a documentary in 40 cities in 10 months. We're travelling a lot, and need certain jobs done in many disciplines while we're away, which will be a large drag on our time. We would like to employ someone to help, but have no funds, other than to offer a slice of the end profits should the project become successful. So, an internship? A volunteer? How can I create one that's useful to the intern? [more inside]

Lazy and Inexperienced or Latent Management Material?

I am mentoring a college kid who wants to be a programmer. I am detail-oriented; he does the bare minimum required to get the job done, but he gets things done.

Will work for no pay, but a litte prestige wouldn't hurt.

How should I go about contacting non-profits about taking me, a relatively inexperienced college sophomore, on as an unpaid summer intern? I'm contacting these organizations cold, and could use some help figuring out my initial approach- what information should I include? Is there anything I can say that will make the recipient of my email more likely to seriously consider my proposal? Do I even stand a reasonable chance of that happening to begin with? [more inside]

Don't want to lose myself in the music, the moment, etc.

After an extremely favorable turn of events, I have been approved to intern at a non-profit in Tanzania. Family is worried about culture shock and my small history of past anxiety in new situations. I'd absolutely love to go, but fear that somehow I would find myself in a similar situation as before: anxious and possibly homesick. Is anxiety medication the answer for me?
