For Susan Milstein, it has become the perfect way to merge her skills as a certified public accountant with her desire to give something back to the community.After four years, Western Maryland College's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program has produced a cadre of trained student volunteers who have become indispensable to those who can't afford professional help in preparing their taxes.The idea came to Ms. Milstein, a Western Maryland professor and the VITA program internship adviser, a few years ago while she was taking a sabbatical leave from her teaching job.After a little research, Ms. Milstein found that the Internal Revenue Service had a program to help taxpayers who were older, disadvantaged, handicapped or non-English-speaking.

Throughout the 1980s and '90s, there was a gold standard brand-name in consumer electronics: Sony. If you had disposable income and were interested in entertaining yourself, you were looking at Sony products first, and then working your way down. In the early part of this century, that mantle was captured by Steve Jobs' reincarnated Apple. Through its dominance in high-end mobile devices and consolidation of major functions, Apple pulled the dedicated portable gaming system out of the mainstream consumer's hand and replaced it with a sleek, pricey, all-in-one device.

Now that the Web has made international TV shows available anytime we want, I decided to return the anthropological favor and study another country's lifestyle through its television. I began my Italian journey with Provaci Ancora Prof 2, a series about a high school literature teacher who, despite having a job and a daughter and a perfectly nice husband, still finds time to solve crimes and experience unspoken lust and pulsating sexual tension (but no actual sex)
