How do I turn a competing job offer into a raise without looking like a jerk?

Last week, one of my clients took me out to lunch and offered me a job right there on the spot. I was flattered, but I probably won't take their offer because I'm pretty happy where I am. The thing is, they were offering me more money. How do I let my current employer know that they're not paying me what I'm worth? [more inside]

Can you quote from a peer review report?

copyright/amademic publications filter: When someone writes a peer review report on a paper you hope to publish, and that review reaches you in its full original version, what is your position on quoting from it, or all of it, in, say, a book? Could you still quote from it, or all of it, if you didn’t mention the name of the reviewer?

What's so rebellious about a Danish Christmas?

Why does my Christmas mug have "rebellion" written on it? While on vacation in Iceland last week, I bought a mug at a Tiger store. The mug is red with the word "oprør" in green. Given the colors and the season I assumed this would have something to do with Christmas, but once I got home and looked it up I discovered that "oprør" means "rebel" or "rebellion" (in Danish). Is there any meaning to this that I'm not getting? Are the Christmas colors just a coincidence? Why is a multinational chain store fomenting rebellion? I'm mildly mystified.
