I want to pass along some resources (things to read, organizations or people to learn from, etc) regarding Qatar and its poor record regarding homophobia, labor exploitation, women's rights, terrorism, etc. What do you recommend? (Qatar-specific preferred but regional groups are good too; anything focused on LGBTQ rights and/or sports is a plus.) [more inside]

A close friend of mine would like to ask the AskMe community for personal recommendations for a male therapist in the Seattle area (Burien/Renton/Tukwila also OK). [more inside]

I like to lock myself out of apps like Google and Chrome so I can only get into them if I really need to. I used to use one called AppLock from DoMobile Labs, which allowed you to put a really long password in (got the idea from this post). Now it won't work on my phone, and the other apps I find only have 4-digit pins. Are there any other app lock apps which allow at least 16 digit passwords?

We've been using Eventbrite to run a free timed admission system for a cultural institution. One of the things that Eventbrite doesn't do is let us limit reservations by email. We are going to be doing a holiday event over three weeks and want people to only be able to register once per email. [more inside]

I'm looking to video+text chat with friends. Tools like Zoom etc put typed messages in an awkwardly separate pane; I'm looking for a tool where the messages just scroll in front of the video, or at least in the same pane, in a nicely designed way (kind of like this game screenshot, but for videochat with friends rather than gaming). Is there such a thing? Thanks!

I've written some D&D 5e adventures, and I'm evaluating building them as a third-party (second-party?) video game module. Neverwinter Nights (NWN) from 2002 has the Aurora toolset which allows third-party module creation, but NWN is D&D 3e. Does anyone know of an existing or planned D&D computer game that has a similar module toolset? It doesn't look as if Solasta: Magister or Baldur's Gate 3 has this tool.

I read a study or an article a few months back that described the efficacy of therapy in terms of years progressed. As in, they asked study participants how many years of growth they had experienced while in therapy. And through this they found some sort of expected ratio like "one year of therapy produces the same amount of personal growth as non-therapy (normal) years" Do you know what this study or article is?

As above - how do I tell if these Twitter suspensions are permanent or not? It’s confusing and hard to tell what’s recent 2020 info and also what’s a punitive short term ban for spamming or what have you vs a long term ban for abuse.
I've been using AntennaPod on my Android phone for a while and syncing to gPodder.net. I would like to start using Pocket Casts instead. I know I can do a OPML export/import to move my subscriptions, but is there any automated way to let Pocket Casts know 1) which episodes I've already played 2) which episodes are currently in my queue?

There's a chapter in Randy Frost & Gail Steketee's book "Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and The Meaning of Things" that details an incredible story about a successful female documentary filmmaker in the 1970s who hoards over 200 cats and who works with a female psychiatrist...and the psychiatrist hoards over 600 cats! I'm actually a documentary filmmaker myself and I'm dying to know if any of this story is publicly available so I can track it down. Details about the case and the people involved were changed in the book to protect their identities so I can't even be sure of the most basic details of the story. It says this all happened in NYC but it could just as easily have been another city - maybe LA given the filmmaking connection? Anything you might know about this would be a great starting point for me to dig more. Thank you.

I am trying to track down a series of photos a father took of his teenaged daughter that I saw many years ago on his personal blog or maybe Flickr. All I remember is that the photos seemed too voyeuristic to be taken by the father and that the subject, a Grunge/Punk teenager smoked a lot. I know some of the photos were taken in the Baltimore area because I distinctly recall my old coffee shop hangout being in them. Ring any bells?

I recently read a quote and am trying to find it again. I think it was by a famous chef? Paraphrased, it said "Don't be afraid to use a lot of pots and pans during cooking". Something about how saving on the washing up can ruin a good dish. Any ideas?

I work off a NAS, and use DigiKam on my desktop for photo management. Via NAS, those same photos are available via the Files app on my iPad, and I would love to do the photo organizing/management I do on my desktop (tagging photos, organizing into Year-Month-Event folders) from the comfort of the couch on my iPad. Does anyone know of an app that plays nicely with the rest of my setup?
