Can you explain why you think this is better?

Correct grammar and wording of sections. Improved title so it's less of a 'review my app' question.

comment Embedded Google Maps or static stylized map
Purely subjective here - but I often use the embedded map on sites to zoom out to give me some context as to their actual location. (I'm not looking for full navigation, just a way to zoom out until I recognise the general area). Specific street address may be useful for people who know the area of the place, but just a zoomed in map showing 'George St' and 'Martin Luther King Bvd' is no use to someone not familiar with the location.

comment Can I trigger a browser scroll without the user explicitly requesting it?
You are correct that it is not a standard <select> box, it is more akin to the Gmail example you use here - an icon alongside the text for each item in the list. Your point of "{the list appearing upwards...} allows the user to maintain their point of reference within the context of the page without having the refocus their attention." sums up the overall problem perfectly, so I agree with you here.

comment Do we still need to add custom back buttons to our design?
You say 'still' in a way that makes it sound like this is a common pattern already. What websites do have in-page back buttons? It might be different depending on the type of site you are referring to here, so a bit more detail and context might be useful.

comment What should a good error email look like?
Have you actually spoken to any of these administrators and asked them what information and frequency they want? Surely asking your target audience is going to illicit more accurate responses.

comment Pop-up vs In-page Error messages
Ah well in that case i would suggest considering actual Inline errors rather than these two options. You can find useful info on this very related (possible duplicate) question: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/26173/…

comment Pop-up vs In-page Error messages
I wouldn't call your 'inline' option truly inline actually. To be inline you'd need to have the individual error messages against the fields themselves as well as displayed at the top.

comment What is the difference between a systems analyst with a UX Designer?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about job descriptions, it is not a User Experience problem that needs solving.

comment How easy to read are small caps vs lower case?
Why is low 'contrast of shape' detrimental to readability? That article reads like pseudo-science rather than actual fact. Has any of that stuff been tested with anyone?

comment Multi Select DDM Scroll Issue
This isn't really a UX question I'm afraid. The UX side would be deciding whether it is the appropriate control to be using in the first place, rather than how to programatically build and update it.
