WordPress theme for college newspaper?

The website for my college newspaper is undergoing a bit of an overhaul and we were looking for a good WordPress theme to replace our current one. It should be simple, with a header image, something to feature a "front page" story as well as categorical images for sports, campus events, etc.

What is the legality for a web site to make credit transactions?

In order for any web site to charge one for services or goods, in this case services, what are they legally required to record and produce? I'm having a little trouble wording my exact question so maybe this will help. The web site in question provides phone service for inmates in correctional facilities and in order for one to receive calls from a loved one in the correctional facility you have to set up an account and attach a phone number to it while loading money for the overpriced service... $5 for 15mins. The company charged me a fee of $5 every time I was to load money on the account which did not show the rate for a call per min and also charged me numerous unknown fees. I could not tell why or how much I was charged which was made worse by their not being a way to track credits and charges to the account. When I contacted customer support they also could not account for the charges and would not refund them, refused to refund my visa purchase, and claims to have no way of producing charges and credits to my account. Their customer service is no help and I'm not sure how to handle the situation. [more inside]

Trolling videos?

I am trying to find some good videos (perhaps on YouTube) on avoiding cyberbullying/trolling which are suitable for an older kid. YouTube search just pulls up a hodgepodge of videos, news reports, pointless amateur clips, and so on. Ideally what I'd like is a Yogscast (from Minecraft fame) type of presentation where experienced gamers talk about how to recognize trolling behavior, how to keep others from pushing your buttons, and why it's pointless to engage or retaliate. Parenting and supervision is working to a certain extent, but maybe a video is out there that would help drive the point home. The trolling has been happening mainly on Roblox and Playstation Network.

Grant me the Serenity...

I've had a pre-order with a major UK online retailer for a limited run collectable ornament for a couple of months now, but the 'Due for release' date has been pushed back three times now, allegedly down to manufacturer delivery issues. That wouldn't normally be a problem... but the same online retailer has exactly the same item (and it's only made by one manufacturer) listed again elsewhere as 'In Stock' - but at more than a 50% markup (£130 as opposed to the pre-order price of £80). Are they doing anything legally wrong here (in UK law), as opposed to just deeply immoral?

Is there a good website for making flow charts or concept maps or cognitive maps in groups?
