Rename "Tickler" column to "Ticker"

OK, so this is a nitpick, but the field that runs text across the top of the screen should be called a "ticker", named after telegraph "tickers" that produced messages on thin strips of paper that were fed from the machine. A "tickler" is a set of often-used files which are placed on a desk or other work area rather than in the filing cabinet so that they are handy. I hate the "tickler" header because it always gets questions and laughs when included in a spreadsheet, especially from people my age who remember a notorious condom by that name.


Oh, and while I'm here, that down-pointing arrowhead symbol that opens up menu options is a downward facing caret, not a downward facing carrot.
