comment What is “chmod” and its practical aspects?
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment How safe is UBUNTU for “non-geek” users
Important part here is: set up properly: you log in with a limited account, and (maybe at first) do all admin tasks yourself. Don't give them an elevated account, and they cannot crash stuff.

You're having a network problem: can you reach other sites? from that commandline? (try wget google.com or something). Also, check out the formatting buttons on the edit field and put a bit effort into making your question look better. It helps :)

Could you give us at least some basic info about what you are doing? For instance, did you type a command? If so, what command was it? Did you click on something? What version of ubuntu are you currently running?

comment Can I get some help with making Live USBs?
What do you mean "do not work?" We can't even guess if it's an issue with booting or your live-usb creation. PLease add what you did, what happened (exactly), what you expected, what you tried (bios? etc)..

comment Standards accounts are able to get root access using sudo without password request
Because that's exactly what that line says? ALL is the keyword here. The line starting with %admin says that all members of group admin have sudo rights, and this line says that everyone has it.
