I work at a school for gifted kids that has a lot of talented staff but not much emotional support for the kids. I have been providing that and am starting to get training for it, but I need a title and to more tightly define what I want my role to look like. Help me, Ask.Mefi! [more inside]

I have a Buddypress site set up with all of my contributors set up as Authors. This has worked well, up until this point, where the users want to make groups. However, the Author role doesn't have permission to create groups. I've used several role modifying plugins to try to switch it on, but none of the plugins have this option available. The current plugin I'm using for role moderation (called 'Members') has an option to add in new Wordpress actions to allow/disallow, but I'm not sure what this would be called. Further data about installed plugins, versions, etc. available upon request. For the moment let's say that simply changing all user's roles to something else isn't an option.

Trying to remember the name of a TV show from my adolescence (1974 - 1981). It was an office drama in which sex roles were reversed. Women had all the power; women were the bosses, made the money, etc. Men were in support positions and were sex objects. The show was syndicated, and, in Boston, at least, was on a UHF station. Any ideas?
I'm looking for user interface shops or departments within companies that do a particular kind of work, and that hire a particular kind of role (even if they have no jobs open right now). Do you know if they exist, and whether they're common or rare? Or, do you know how I can find out? [more inside]

What are some examples of actors "playing themselves" (not someone purposefully featured as themselves, but someone whose personality is so powerful that it overwhelms the character he/she is supposed to be playing)? For instance, some people say that no matter what movie he's in, Jack Nicholson always plays "Jack Nicholson." Other people say the same for Robert DeNiro or Clint Eastwood. I'm looking for some actors and roles that are the embodiment of this notion.
