Cintiq through airport screening?

Can I take a Cintiq digitiser tablet through airport screening without getting it confiscated? The Cintiq requires mains power to work. (It doesn't have a battery, & was never designed to work with one). I think it's understandable that I wouldn't want to check this in as hold baggage. It's easy to mistake the thing for a tablet that "suspiciously does nothing" when not plugged in to the wall. UK-US trip. [more inside]

What background screening services show someone's salary history?

I found a background check service at one point that showed a summary of each paycheck my employer issued to me, including bonuses and other payments, and I believe my Social Security number was required in order to retrieve the report. I can't locate the service again. Are there any out there that still offer such a service?

How do libraries decide which donated books get added to the catalog?

The question was asked, What does the library do with donated books? and one of the respondents said that library staff screen donations and then decide what to do with, or where to send each book. These people were referred to as "Selectors." I'm curious about the process of 'Selecting' on behalf of a library. What I mean is, How do libraries generally decide what gets added to the catalog (approved for processing) and what gets rejected (sent off to the 'Friends bookstore' or what have you). I'm sure each library has its own needs to consider but, generally speaking, are there some set of basic guidelines that most Selectors employ in the initial screening process?

How can a negative HIV test affect a person's insurance premiums?

I'm a health care professional, and I recently read on a physician's blog that a negative HIV test on your health record may affect life or health insurance premiums. I have a vague idea of why this might be, but if any infectious disease, insurance or other professionals could shed some light on this, please explain!

Can you use airport amnesty bins to erase certain crimes?

Where can I find the written laws that regulate amnesty bins at airports? (Amnesty bins are the bins right before the metal detectors in some airports where you can, according to signs, throw away anything that you can't take through security without penalty.) And, related, are these actually legally binding, or just a gentlemen's agreement? Could someone hypothetically put a stolen painting in the bin, and be free of legal consequence of having stolen it?

Please help us improve our office phone system on the cheap.

I work in a small office with a small budget where the only full-time employees are my assistant and I, and we have separate offices. Our office has two phone lines. When one is busy, the other rings. Line one is our published office number. We each have our own voice mailbox. The problem is that you only get the "Press 1 to speak to [her], press 2 to speak to [me]" when both lines are busy or no one answers. I want to set up things so that people can select who they would like to speak to before the phone rings on our end. [more inside]

Does the TSA freak out over Incase hard shells?

Anyone know if TSA agents would require you to remove a laptop from a hard shell case during the x-ray screening process? Or are they just concerned about clutter in bags obscuring their view? I have the Incase linked above and do not want to have to try and go through the pain of removing the thing in line... or at all for that matter :) Thanks!

My mind says fraud, but that can't be right.

Legally, what would you call refusal to adhere to city/government by-laws to fingerprint or background check volunteer workers? I imagine it's a fairly serious crime. Location in Canada preferably, but US examples welcome. [more inside]

My dire background!

I'm applying for jobs that require a local law enforcement background check, and I suspect that it's turning up information that's [really] detrimental to being hired! What kind of information could they be finding? How could I find out what's on my background check? Finally, is there any way to delicately address these issues in job applications/cover letters without digging myself into a hole? [more inside]

Background check: am I doomed?

Did I permanently screw up my work history? Last summer I worked a string of three dead-end jobs, none of which lasted more than two weeks. One was a contractor position; the other two were regular jobs that withdrew taxes and social security on a regular basis. I was broke, desperate, and depressed at the time. [more inside]

Background check: deal breaker?

Employment history filter: I am starting a new job after about a year of intermittent contract work padded between various stages of unemployment. Though I never lied about anything, they might uncover that my past year has in fact been really spotty in terms of work (during interviews, we talked about my contract projects, but they didn't ask about specific dates or durations). Does this make me screwed? [more inside]

Landlords suck.

A potential new landlord told me that while my credit report came back a-ok, an issue came up on my "tenant report." I know this to be in error (the alleged "issue" occured before I even moved in to my current place). So do I have a right to view the report on me, like I do for credit? Whom do I contact in order to fix this item? They were very sketchy with the details, and this whole thing has left me even more jaded about renting. What rights do I have in regards to these "issues" and "reports"? Who does them? Are they legit? Do I have any recourse whatsoever? [more inside]

Preparing for TSA screenings

I'm flying in a few weeks, and I'm majorly worried by some of the stories I've been hearing about physical TSA screenings. There are certain ways I am not willing to consent to be touched by strangers, no matter what.

Do I have any recourse if I am singled out for a physical search of my person, other than not to fly at all? How can I prepare in advance for potential conflicts?
