I have a bit of discretionary money (1k). Rather than just letting it sit in a bank account earning basically no interest, I am opting to dip my toes in to the world of stocks, options, investing, etc. Other than buying shares in a company I am already aware of and think is going to do well in the future (which isn't always that simple, I know), how do people independently (ie. not via a broker) research and learn about other stocks and worthy investments? [more inside]
I'm launching a Kickstarter campaign tomorrow, and I have around 1500 people to email. How do I do this simply?

If relevant for potential software/plugin solutions, I have a Mac and a Wordpress site on a good server.

I'm moving house next weekend and new place does not have WiFi. It's a six month lease and I'll probably be moving out of the country after that. I use a lot of internet (streaming music, downloading podcasts, films, sending large files, using cloud services, etc.) and so I need something unlimited or pretty near it. Everything I'm seeing online so far is either too much £ for too little internet (£20 for 2GB per month, seriously??) or too much commitment (12-18 month contracts for phone, broadband and TV). I only need internet. What are my options, if any? Thanks!

Can you help me plan which treatments to get and in what order? [more inside]

I need something nicer than a bag of sugar-free Lifesavers.

I enrolled in a veterinary technician program this past fall, and I've realized that I don't want a career in this particular field.

If I choose to quit the program, how do I tell those supporting me, specifically financially, that I don't want to take this path anymore even though I appeared so sure of it before? Also, where do I go from here? [more inside]
