I wan to make a Google ngram showing the history of the term "spoiler" as it is used in popular culture to mean the reveal ahead of time of an important piece of plot information. Problem is, "spoiler" has at least two other meanings and I don't know how, or even if, I can craft a query to separate out those other meanings. [more inside]

I am entering causes of death into a database.
On one of the death certificates from 1901 it lists "phithisis eutenca".
Any ideas on what this could be?
Google was no good to me.

I am working in Wordpress with the Whitelight theme. I'm pretty new but know enough to be dangerous :)
I have set up my attribute terms and added it to the variable product's page. Since they are scents, I would like to have the description (that I wrote when creating the term) appear on the product page. How this possible? Thanks! Happy Day!

My dear Egyptian friend calls me "Yah Soosah" and "Yah Habibti." What does this mean? I'm pretty sure these are terms of endearment, but what do they mean? She said "yah soosah" is an old Egyptian word. Help me figure out the meaning of my new pet names. Thank you!!! : )

I'm looking for a Latin legal maxim which says something like 'if a contract is silent on a point, it should be assumed that it is silent on purpose, and you should not read terms into the contract'. It is not "sub silentio", and in fact is almost the opposite of it. Can you refresh my memory?

I'm looking for a piece of software, either for my Mac or online: I'm a philosophy major, and there's a huge number of thinkers, schools of thought, and concepts to manage in the area. What I want, ideally, is something that holds terms and definitions and allows me to drag them into categories (i.e. a page for poststructuralist writers.) Tags are better than hierarchies because I want each term to appear in several areas. I'm sure something exists but I don't know what to call it to do a good search. (I already use Evernote for notes and it might roughly work, although I really want something more focused and lightweight.) [more inside]

Verizon Wireless extended my contract without my knowledge or consent when I changed my service plan a few months ago. I explicity ask Verizon each time I make a change to my account whether or not the change would extend my contract, and the customer rep must have said no, or else I would not have agreed. What are my options?
