Psychology preceding avoidable accidents and catastrophes

Please point me towards more non-fiction accounts of fatalities that may have been avoidable had the people involved made different decisions earlier on. In particular I am looking for accounts that provide detail about these earlier decisions so the reader can perhaps surmise where the “tipping point” was reached. [more inside]

MS Access Combo Box Fields behaving strangely.

I'm putting together an Access database (woe is me), which includes some "multiple choice" fields, that contain a defined list of options. I've got some code that puts together a query, and generates a report. The way these fields are displayed in this report is inconsistent, and I'm trying to figure out why. [more inside]

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]

Drug-dealer Problems

A man in my neighborhood is selling drugs, and from what I can tell its something hard. I want to report this anonymously to the police. I'm afraid of retribution if he or any of his associates find out about this. I'm confident I've identified him on Facebook. What materials should I include with my report? How likely is it to be followed up on?

Should I contribute to this report?

I worked on a professional project which went badly wrong. Before the project imploded, I tried to draw attention to the problems and suggest solutions, but was overruled. Now, months later, the project leader wants me to contribute to a report. If you've been in a similar situation, how did you approach it? What pitfalls should I be wary of?

What software should I use to make a sleek, professional report (with lots of different kinds of content)?

I want to make a 70-100 page report look as sleek and professional as possible. It includes text, references, figures, and photos, as well as "call-out boxes" of various sizes (100-500 words, plus 1-2 figures/photos) that need to be set apart from the text in a non-ugly way. Almost like a high school science textbook. I know there are a ton of Word "report templates" online, but I haven't found any that handle this many types of content, and I don't know if Word is really the way to go here. What *is* the way to go? Is there an easily learned, cheap software you would recommend for this?

Best Source for Book Descriptions?

I'm currently working on a research project that will lead to a written product (an article or report, either published in a magazine/journal, or released online). I want to create an appendix to the report that has the names and descriptions for books referenced in the report. This will be an extensive list, so I don't want to create the descriptions myself. Can I use the product description that is put out by the publisher (the one that is used by Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book sellers)? If not, what are my options?

Industry Standard Ad-Hoc Reporting Solution

I'm looking for a standard solution to provide minimal ad-hoc reporting functionality. I am an inexperienced sysadmin who spends a large portion of his day writing similar reports for my users. I am looking for a solution that will allow me to publish reports that can be modified by non technical users. My primary goal is to find the most "industry standard" solution, so that I know that it will have plenty of community support. More than just finding a good solution, I'd really like to find a good solution with a recognized name behind it. Flexibility and ease of use are my secondary interests.
