Play the field or play the odds?

Multiple brand new jobs opening at my company. Was planning to apply for all of them, as they're fairly the same. However, was just told there's a particular job coming open, and supervisors want to sponsor me as the applicant of choice. Apply for one job, or apply for all? Specifics inside. [more inside]

How do I prove depression as a cause of absence for my unemployment claim?

Recently, I successfully applied for unemployment benefits in New York. My former employer has filed an appeal. They are claiming I was discharged for misconduct, specifically, absenteeism and tardiness. I am claiming that my absences and latenesses were due to illness, specifically, depression. How do I prove my case? Will a letter from my therapist suffice? Do I need a letter from my psychiatrist (an M.D.)? Do I need the therapist/M.D. to verify that my illness was the cause on each of the dates in question, or is it enough to provide a general statement that my illness was the cause of this pattern of behavior?

DIY Portfolio Management

Database Filter: Building a database for project portfolio management- The project table must contain a record of every member of the project team as distinct people so that I can query which projects John Smith is working on as well as all of the team members of Project ABC. Project teams have between 3 and 20 people. The best design I can come up with is 20 fields for resources (ie, R_1, R_2, etc). Doable, but this will make my queries pretty bulky.

Help a Peruvian deal with the jetlag he gets from overnight and weekend trips to Bolivia

Parents of 3+ year olds! How do you deal with being tired *all the time*? I've gone from being single and childless and in my early 30s to being the boyfriend of a mother of two boys (3 and 7). Things are astonishingly good between us, and the boys are great (albeit a lot of hard work, even according to their Mum), but I'm *so* tired after helping out with the boys - it's all the games of tag, the nerf gunfights, the question and answer sessions, etc. We're really enjoying ourselves, but ohmigod I'm exhausted. Help me not feel like I'm letting the side down at home with my housemates, at her place, out and about with my friends and at work. Other than 'coffee', 'more sleep' and 'less time with the girlfriend and the boys' (done, done, and ain't gonna happen), what are your protips for fighting off tiredness and irascibility?

I'm looking for record stores in New Orleans.

My wife is traveling to New Orleans this weekend, and I'd like her to pick me up a (vinyl) record or two. The place she's staying is on the edge of the French Quarter and Faubourg Marigny. Can anyone recommend some cool record stores in that general vicinity where she could pick up N.O. jazz/blues vinyl? I've done a bit of searching, but most of the places I've found seem to stock mostly CDs.
