Yosemite National Park for the differently-abled

Taking a trip to Yosemite (yes, the park!) next month and some of us can't walk long distances. What are the best things to do that don't involve lots of walking or that don't depend on you being able to keep going? Like we're not going to wind up stranded in the wilderness because we used up our walking spoons earlier than expected. [more inside]

iPad scale drawing app

I want an iPad app that will let me easily make a scale drawing of my back yard, and then export it in a useful standard format (e.g. PDF, EPS, etc.). I'm having a hard time telling of the "room design" and "floorplan" apps will do what I want. [more inside]

where can I read details plans and after-action reports (on any topic)?

For example, the 2014 Mason Transit inclement weather plan, NJTransit's hurricane plan, or the MTA's Sandy after-action report. Doesn't have to be related to mass transit; that's just where my mind is today.

Confused about the best iPhone 6 plans for AT&T

My wife has an iPhone 4 on a market rate plan. I have an iPhone 5 with both a grandfathered unlimited plan and a discount through my employer. Together, we fight crime. No, wait, we look for bargains on our cell plans. Can you help us figure out what's the best plan or combination of plans for us, and how actually to upgrade to iPhone 6? [more inside]

Help solve a friendship dispute.

2 friends attempt to get together once or twice a week and when they do its a really great, fun time. Both are quirky and odd and feel personal connections and common interests are a rare thing. But.... A is always late, often gets distracted with other plans when executing the original plan, abruptly changes plans or altogether forgets them. B likes to stick to plans and follow through reliably. B is often frustrated at A for what appears/presents as inconsideration, flakiness or straight up lying. A is often frustrated at B's inability to be flexible or understanding or appreciating of the 'thought' behind the plans whether or not they actually materialize. Friend A has untreated adhd (and doesn't want to discuss it) and and Friend B thinks this may be a contributing factor. Friend A and Friend B both secretly think the other is in the wrong while they try to compromise in order to continue the friendship of 4 years, but the many disagreements are wearing on them. Should A and B just not hang out anymore?

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood... and I took the one where I went crazy for a month to raise my score 40 points... and that uh... has made all the difference?

GRE-Filter: I was happy with my GRE scores. Then, I received word that I have the opportunity to get into a super-duper-top-tier doctoral program previously inaccessible. However, my Quantitative Score--while still in the range of accepted scores over the years for this program--is now less-than-stellar relatively speaking. Is it crazy to think I could study intensely for about a month and improve my score 30-50 points? Am I overthinking this? [more inside]

Help me build a special dog ramp

Help me design a ramp to fit over a staircase for a dog to go up and down. My parents’ dog has arthritis. My parents house has a hardwood floor staircase that she can’t go down comfortably. She slips and frequently falls down the stairs and it’s obviously painful and stressful for her to go down. I’d like to build her a ramp with some ridges (i.e. pieces of wood set up as crossbars so her feet don’t slip). Two catches inside. [more inside]

Trains from Berlin to avoid Ryanair?

I loathe Ryanair. I need to get back to London from Berlin next Friday, and I don't want to fly Ryanair, but all the flights on other airlines are hideously expensive. Before I succumb, I was thinking about catching a fast train from Berlin to somewhere in Germany not too far away with an airport, then catching a flight to London from there. Any suggestions on airports within two hours of Berlin on the fast train that have regular flights to London?
