Where do the John Does of the world live?

What are some equivalents of "123 Main Street" outside Canada and the US? I'm looking for prototypical exemplar addresses, like you might see used on a sample form, but which are still likely to exist in reality -- so, NOT something like "123 Example Street" or "123 Anystreet." I do realize this exact address format does not apply to all areas of the globe. [more inside]

I'm considering taking an international vacation next summer. I've never been outside of North America and I have very little disposable income.

What are some great budget travel locations? [more inside]

International Music Request

This question has certainly been asked before but I am looking for great rock music from different countries, the place matters not (except US and Canada). What I really want though is more musical exposure of bands who I can then listen to and research outward from them. In other words, I am not looking for exhaustive lists of bands, rather, geographic diversity. The more different countries, the better. [more inside]

International Relations 101

I read the news (BBC) daily and pick up The Economist once in awhile (it's expensive!). I'm curious and want to know what is going on in the world, but most of the time I can't put anything into perspective and understand what this means for the rest of the world or the possible impact on my life. For example, I'm not really sure why Bush started a war in Afghanistan, or the repercussions of the Gaza flotilla attack. I like how The Economist will analyze issues and say "X happened. This is bad because Y might happen now." or "A is mad because B did this in the past." in short, up front sentences. When I try to look people/events up on Wikipedia or Google, it's overwhelming because there is TOO much information to read, and I'm constantly having to look up more and more and this easily turns into hours of reading and 60 tabs open on my browser. How can I get a general grasp of international relations? [more inside]

How can I work as a registered nurse in U.S.?

I really would like to get some help from somebody who knows about the regulations for international nursing in U.S.. I have ten years of nursing experiences as an registered nurse in Japan. I just graduated from a nursing program in the U.S. and would really like to work as a registered nurse. I am not a U.S. citizen and have only a student visa (F-1). I would like to apply for H1-b visa if I can find a hospital that is willing to become a sponsor. However, I have had a hard time finding a hospital and some say it is almost impossible with current immigration situations to receive a working visa for nursing. [more inside]
