Help creating a keyboard layout shortcut.

Mac users: Can somebody please tell me how to set up a keyboard shortcut or script that allows me to toggle between U.S. keyboard and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) keyboard layouts? I switch these on and off a LOT when I'm using my iMac and Macbook, but am tired of constantly going up to the little flag dropdown menu in the Finder (which I have to do repeatedly as I switch from program to program, since the drop-down window change doesn't seem to apply globally, but rather only within the current program you have up top). I know there's an easier way, I just haven't gotten around to figuring it out or setting it up. Thanks! [more inside]

Where can I find a split-flap departure board in use, or video/film reference of one?

Diabetes Disability - who pays?

I have a friend (living in the U.S. Southeast) who is not working due to type 1 diabetes. He was recently working the assembly line for a major Japanese automobile manufacturer before diabetes forced him to stop working and now he's on some kind of disability for the rest of his life. Does his employer write his disability checks or the Social Security system or is this unknowable without asking him probing questions?

List of steps to a failed African state?

I am looking for the identifiable steps that a government takes towards being a failed state, with a specific emphasis on African countries.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think

Socialism. I keep hearing this word in regards to our current health care reform. I'm fairly sure most of the people I know don't really know what it actually means (my mother, for example) - I'm not even sure I know anymore. Are there already socialized programs in the US and, if so, please give me examples I can share?

Bars on the Upper East Side of Manhattan

NYC filter: Looking for a bar on the Upper East Side (preferably east 80s/90s) which can accomodate a group of ~50-70. My high school class is having its 15th reunion, which will start off at our school and then progress to an after-party at a bar at around 9/9:30pm on a Friday in June. So a private room would work, as would a bigger bar which could simply accomodate a mass influx. Anything from divey to schmancy is a possibility. Thanks!

using a QUERY formulate in Google Spreadsheet

Hi, I searched through the archives and did not find a match. Thank you in advance. Let's say I have a spreadsheet in Google docs with two columns, names and dollar amounts. Jane Smith, $5; Joe Sixpack, $7; Jane Goodall, $4; Joe Frankin, $10, etc. I want to use – I think – the QUERY function to ADD up all the dollars that all the Joe's have, or all the dollars that the Jane's have. I have read through as much documentation as I can find and it's not giving me enough to formulate a successful query. This:
=query(A1:B20, "Select A where (A contains 'jane')", sum(B))
does not work. Any suggestions? thank you!
