Are we wrongly telling our participants that they don't get taxed?

I'm trying to find information about taxes and volunteer paid experimental (non-clinical) studies. I work in a lab, and one of our participants told us a week ago that if a study pays (the volunteer) over a certain amount, it gets taxed. Can anyone tell me if this is true and give me an official link? We're in Philadelphia, PA, USA. I can provide any other relevant information you need. Thanks!

What is the couch-to-5k edition of mediation and mental focus?

I need to bludgeon my anxiety to death in the most peaceful way possible. Many people recommend meditation. For me, attempting to meditate has been a miserable experience... a sad exercise in white-knuckled denial. Just thinking about it fills me with dread. I know this isn't the way it's supposed to go. I need something more than "sit quietly and allow your thoughts to pass by like clouds". I need the step-by-step, couch-to-5k edition of mental calmness and focus. Help me out, mefi. Give it to me straight, detailed, specific, and with absolute minimum of woo... the mental focus fitness program for someone who can't even lift a metaphorical 1lb weight. Book/media recommendations welcome too. (I'm in therapy already, btw. It's been helpful, but we're not specifically focused on my anxiety at the moment.)

Ever used an Alpha-Stim machine?

I have an anxiety disorder, and my psychiatrist tried an Alpha-Stim (cranial electrotherapy stimulation) on me a few days ago. The experience was pleasant but not lasting. I'm told I'll have to use it 2-3 times a week, 20 minutes at a time for a few weeks before I'll know if it's truly effective. So, I'm wondering if anyone here has regularly used one of these or knows anyone who has, and what the experience was like?
