Once I marry my fiancee (from Ukraine), how long will it take to get her Green Card so she can work? She is in the US on an F1 student visa currently. I'm an American citizen.
It depends on where you live. USCIS website is your best source of info.Regardless of how fast or slow her Green Card will be processed, EAD (Employment Authorization Document), I-765, is a separate document you should pursue if you want her to start working as soon as possible.The government knows how slow they are with GC. That is why they have this separate piece of paper called EAD as a stop gap. You don’t need to bother with EAD after she receives her GC. Likewise, if she chooses to stay home instead, then you don’t need the EAD either.Lastly, if she wants to work on the campus of her school (up to 20 hours/week during school or full time during holidays if she intends to return for the next semester/quarter), she doesn’t need a GC or EAD at all.
How do you check on the status on a Walmart application you filled out online?
Other than contacting the personnel manager of whatever store you applied to, there isn’t much you can do to check on the status of your application.The thing is the entire job application process for major corporations has changed. With Walmart you apply online. That files is run through various programs and algorithms which seek to discard any that contain definitive red flags, or names that have been deemed “Do Not Hire” or “Do Not Rehire”. Those same programs and algorithms also seek to push to the forefront any applications which contain keywords and phrases that it is looking for specifically to hire. Once they have run through the gamut of analyses, any that pass muster are then sent to whatever stores you included in your application. So there may be numerous stores that receive it, depending on what you entered when applying. After all that if any store that receives it has an opening that matches what you put down as interests with regards to various positions, you may get called for an interview. That might take less than a day, or it might take several months. It depends on need and the availability of stores having open reqs. Once you’re called for an interview, you will usually be made an offer that same day, unless they decide you just aren’t a fit for what they are looking for.
What is the legal status of volunteer police officers, nonprofessionals used to fill out the ranks?
First, read this answer.What is it like to be a volunteer police officer?Reserve police officers (in the US) usually receive the same Police Academy training as active officers and are part of a specific police department subject to the same restrictions and commands while on duty. They serve less often and in less demanding roles (closing off streets for a parade, checking transit fares, etc.). Since much of the more routine police work involves basic skills that don't improve or degrade much, reserve officers face the situations with many of the same skills and capabilities as active officers.

How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.
