90s Pro video equipment - Betacam SP - recycle, donate, what ?

I have a Betacam-SP UWV 1800-p player/recorder. I cannot think of any use for it. Would it suit a college AV department ? Or a museum ? I'd like to see it find a good home, but I will settle for getting rid of it. Can any Mefiers recommend a next step ?

Help me find a thorough sports doctor for my elite athletic hopes

Help me find a thorough sports doctor for my elite athletic hopes. I am a 28 year old male. I currently have a partially torn Hamstring, adhesions and scar tissue in my hamstrings (and buttocks). I also have a leg length discrepancy, my right leg is 1.4 CM shorter than my left leg ( .7cm in femur, .7cm in the tibia, confirmed by scanogram). I think the leg length discrepancy is slowing me down while running, and causing other injuries. [more inside]

Mentally exhausted by my professional situation (and I'm the reason)

I'm 33 and I feel like a hopeless failure professionally. To an outsider it would not seem so - I've gone to prestigious undergrad and grad (MBA) schools and have had decent to very good job opportunities and experiences. However, the pattern of my career has been: stress about finding a good job, land one eventually, do ok and enjoy it in the beginning, then begin a downward slide into frustration, anger, and general dissatisfaction and start to think about getting out - maybe this isn't the right function, this isn't the right industry, this isn't the right company, more school? I've chopped and changed industries & roles (grass is always greener syndrome) and consequently don't really have deep experience in anything. I have never been promoted, never gotten a raise, never gotten a really good review. I've never voluntarily left a job - never fired per se but either laid off, close to it or my employer wasn't sad to see me go. Most of my peers are plowing full steam ahead into senior positions and handsome compensation; meanwhile I'm struggling to hang on to a job. My professional life has always been and continues to be a source of anxiety, frustration, anger, shame - agony - for me and I desperately want peace, and a plan for moving forward. [more inside]

Got Rubrics?

I'm working with a few school start-up teams, and two of them are in search of resources for creating rubrics. I think I've convinced them that the act of creating rubrics is itself very valuable, but they still want to see some additional models before they jump in. Are there books or websites that provide strong sample rubrics as well as philosophical and practical guidelines for the creation of rubrics? Thanks--
