Recommend me some WordPress plugins

I am tasked with updating a WordPress site for my research facility. I need to add two features, an image gallery and an event ticker or news feed. Free plugins are greatly preferred, since the mechanics of payment for this sort of thing are a giant pain in the patookus. I am not terribly experienced with WordPress, but have spent a decent amount of time elbow deep in the site and have an idea of how most of it works. [more inside]

I paid for a year of hosting and a domain, now what?

I'd like to get back into managing a silly little bit of webspace for myself and my whims. I paid for a year of hosting and two domains through Dreamhost, but no real idea of how to go forward, and I don't have significant blocks of free time to really get involved all at once. [more inside]

Free (or cheap), clean, minimal, mostly text Wordpress theme

I'd like a place to put up a CV and occasionally some writing. I'm looking for a minimal, clean, and if possible free Wordpress theme. In terms of references, I really like the look of Grantland articles (for example, the first thing I clicked on their frontpage). I love the running header, the minimal navigation, the centered space for an article, the white space, the blocking, and the running foot-notes on the side.

Tracking user activity on a Wordpress blog

Wordpress question: Is it possible to generate a report on which users are the most active on the site in terms of interactions, click-throughs, and time logged-in? I see a few plugins which claim to do this, but it seems like something you'd have had to have installed since the time you wanted to start keeping track. Is there something I can use which will find this information automatically?

Small business websites and WordPress

Dealing with Wordpress and Web-based WYSIWYGs

Does anyone have any tips for dealing with less savvy users of web-based WYSIWYG products like TinyMCE (which Wordpress uses) and/or improving the usability on the back-end? The best users I've worked with seem to universally use the HTML editor, while the rest fight with the visual editor to varying degrees of success. [more inside]
