Thanksgiving Poem by Latino?

Specific Thanksgiving poem by a Latino author? I am trying to find a remembered poem for a professor about Thanksgiving that he remembers reading. Poem is in English, by a Latino poet, very funny, and about a young person explaining to his/her parents what Thanksgiving is/means. The prof thinks the poem was by a male author. (minor additional details below the fold) [more inside]

Car dealers in West Philly

Where do folks in Philadelphia buy used cars? - We need a used car, sensible Japanese economy style. Is there anywhere accessible from West Philly where there are those streets with multiple car dealers on them? The online reviews for some of the small local dealers here are ... scary. Thanks!

How do I make an RSS feed for Bloomberg News?

I'd like to have an RSS feed for Bloomberg News, specifically for their environment reporting, that I can put into Google Reader. The problem is, Bloomberg News discontinued RSS feeds in 2006. None of the workarounds I've found are satisfactory: This one, for example, tries to use Google News, but it wouldn't really work for my purposes. (Using "environment" site:bloomberg.com as my search string wouldn't necessarily return all news items related to the environment -- a story just about renewable energy, for example, not its environmental benefits, wouldn't show up at all.) There's also Feedity, but they want you to pay to have feeds with any sort of functionality, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to. Page2RSS is closer to the mark, but the output is messy (multiple stories in the same feed item). Businessweek.com, which is owned by Bloomberg News, offers RSS feeds with Bloomberg News, but they don't allow for narrowing down on just the environment reporting. Is there a solution out there that's better? [more inside]

Corrupt NTFS filesystem, can't get into the repair console.

My parents computer isn't booting, and it's due to a corrupt ntfs filesystem. I'd like to run CHKDSK, but when I try to boot into the repair console, it requires an administrator password, which we don't have (second-hand computer). I can't use a password reset disk, because it won't recognize the disk (presumably due to the corrupt filesystem). Catch-22 - what now? [more inside]

Annoying phone calls

My husband is receiving annoying phone calls from his ex (a friend gave his number out without knowing any better). He does not want to change his cell number due to his numerous work contacts. When he sees her number he doesn't answer and then she leaves messages. He has told her to stop but she must be a mental case, she has been calling for 2 months. What would be a solution to this other than changing his number? If he had the number blocked we figure she will just call from another number.

Choosing a professional email address?

I have my full name as a domain name, and I'd like to start using it as my email address on my resume and for work purposes.
