My Toronto-based shop has just received a huge collection of art house, cult, foreign, Criterion, out of print etc. DVDs. For obvious reasons I'd like to turn these over as quickly as possible.

Hi - I am applying for technical writing jobs in Toronto, and - like many people - I find that I don't have a clear idea how to write good cover letters.

Hivemind, can you please help? [more inside]

"There was a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile. He had a crooked cane, and he wore a crooked smile."
Due to a recent and very vigorous visit to pukesville, I'm pretty sure that I've dislocated my jaw. Would a walk-in clinic or urgent care clinic (if those exist) be able to put my jawbones back in order, or does this mean a lengthy trip to the ER? I am in downtown Toronto. [more inside]
Alternative routes to Toronto for the Buskerfest. I'm in New York, I want to leave here early on Saturday morning. The trains are booked, the coaches take 13 hours and the planes are far too expensive. Can I get a train to somewhere else that's not too ridiculous, where I can change to get to Toronto? The Amtrak lady wasn't very helpful on the phone. Is my only hope a late bus (or late train) on Friday night? :(
I grind my teeth in my sleep. A friend of mine who is an Registered Massage Therapist ("RMT") tells me that even though I have a night guard I'll destroy the discs in my jaw by grinding, that the fact that my jaw clicks when it opens and shuts is VERY BAD, and that I need to get to an RMT pronto. The dentists at the clinic I go to claim they've never heard of massage as a cure for grinding. So I have two questions: is my RMT friend right, and if so, can you recommend a Toronto-area (preferably central or west-end) RMT who has specialized training in TMJ issues?
GTA: Fast and/or anonymous STD check in Toronto? Can anyone recommend a clinic in Toronto that has fast results on STD tests?
