Three questions: (1) How many current civil service employees are also reserve/national guard members, (2) How many current civil service employees were also active duty military service members, and (3) How many of both groups retired from the military? I've been to DOD, the Census, OPM ... I'm not having much luck.

I'm looking for an international news program service that I can access online. I don't have TV, so ideally i'd like a list of videos that give me the gist of what's going on in the world, preferably from multiple sources. I'd like something like a video version of Android's pulse app, where I could choose my sources, make a playlist of stories and sit back and watch/listen. I don't mind paying for it, but I'll need it available in both the U.S. and China. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

What is the name of this book that was about history of airline stewardess customer service training?
I'm looking for a certain book written in the sixties or seventies about the sociological aspect of the training of airline hostesses/stewardesses. Don't remember if it was entirely about this topic, or just a notable part of it. Some part of it may have been about how stewardesses had to curb the outward expression of their personalities to match stringent requirements of communication with passengers that rendered them almost carbon copies of one another. It was somewhat famous. Suggestions? [more inside]

I work on a group of 11 developers. Our operations folks work 24/7, and occasionally servers go down or things break and a developer needs to be on-call to support these things. We have an 800 number that forwards to the on-call engineer's cell phone (rotated weekly semi-predictably) and has a centralized voicemail for missed calls. Unfortunately, our current service is a pain to configure and only supports a maximum of 10 forwarding numbers. Do you guys know of any services out there that would do something like what we're doing? I'm not sure what we're paying now, but it's probably under $100 a month.
