How does Masterchef work?

Last week my husband and I were watching the final episode of UK Masterchef and we got into a discussion about the logistics of the show. Basically, they edit the show like everyone finishes cooking at the same time, but they are judged one at a time. But how does one contestant's food not get cold while someone else's is being judged?

How can I get my city to improve traffic signal timings?

I live in San Diego, and I hate the traffic lights along a particular road that I always drive on (Genesee Avenue). I'm regularly astonished at how soul-crushingly stupid they can be, and I'm constantly yelling at them from my car like an idiot. What can I do about this? My dream would be to talk to the traffic engineers in my city, really pick their brains and offer my observations. How does one go about making this happen? [more inside]

Timing belt broke, can I repair it myself?

The timing chain broke while I was driving my 1997 Ford Taurus GL, I drove it for a few more minutes and the battery died. Once I was able to pull over to the side of the road, I opened up the hood and the chain was ripped to shreds. I don't have a lot of auto repair experience, but am I able to repair it myself by just simply installing a new timing chain? If so, are there any diagrams or helpful directions on the internet somewhere? [more inside]
