Learn how to become an in-demand project manager for less than $50

Learn how to become an in-demand project manager for less than $50

TL;DR: You’ll get eight courses on project and quality management on sale for just $45.99 with this limited time offer.


Unless you’ve seriously never had a job, you’ve probably dipped your toes in project management. After all, pretty much every industry is dependent on managing set projects to completion, and you’ve no doubt had some small role in making that happen. Congratulations. 

Yet even if the person two desks over from you is a project manager, it can be tricky to figure out what it is they actually do; and infuriating to find out how much they do it for. Thanks to a somewhat elusive mix of people skills, technical know-how, and psychology, project management is hard and project managers are in-demand. Read more…

Saying Bernie Sanders ‘rejects’ climate reality is profoundly foolish

Saying Bernie Sanders 'rejects' climate reality is profoundly foolish

So far in short-lived 2020, Antarctic scientists measured warm waters eating away at the planet’s most threatening glacier, Earth experienced its warmest January in over 140 years of record-keeping, and the Australian Navy rescued 1,000 residents trapped by the nation’s historic, climate-enhanced fires. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders has an ambitious, though imperfect, plan to help slash Earth’s skyrocketing carbon emissions. President Donald Trump, meanwhile, appointed a non-climate scientist to the National Security Council who incorrectly claimed Earth’s plants are in dire need of more CO2, directed his administration to officially leave the world’s climate change agreement in November, and got owned by Captain America when he childishly tweeted that the inevitable presence of winter means the planet isn’t warming.

Best dating sites and apps for people over 40 — and the ones you should avoid

Best dating sites and apps for people over 40 — and the ones you should avoid

Dating when you’re 40 or older can be intimidating — unlike when you’re in your 20s or 30s, you can’t assume everyone your age is single and looking. If you’ve found yourself “on the market” again, it’s important to remember that half of U.S. marriages do end in divorce, so the dating pool isn’t as small as you might think.

Meeting people organically out in public still happens, but sometimes it’s easier and less intimidating to meet people where they are. It’s a comfort in knowing that the people you find on dating apps are single (hopefully) and looking for a romantic relationship, so at least you’re both on the same page. Read more…

Amazon removes fake products promising to ‘kill’ coronavirus

Amazon removes fake products promising to 'kill' coronavirus

Amazon will no longer allow third-party merchants to advertise products claiming to treat or cure the coronavirus, CNBC reports.

Misinformation continues to spread on social media, and it appears the same has occurred on one of the world’s most popular e-commerce platforms. The listings target fearful consumers through deceptive language. Sellers describe their cleansers, surgical face masks, and sprays as capable of “killing” the coronavirus and, in some listings, they go as far as name-dropping well-respected agencies such as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control.

Michael Jordan joked about the crying Jordan meme during powerful eulogy for Kobe Bryant

Michael Jordan joked about the crying Jordan meme during powerful eulogy for Kobe Bryant

Michael Jordan delivered a powerful speech honoring Kobe Bryant at a public event on Monday celebrating the lives of the late Laker, his daughter Gianna, and the seven others who died in a tragic helicopter crash last month. 

But Jordan — who sobbed as he spoke about his friend he called a “little brother”— also delivered a bit of levity by joking about the “Crying Jordan” meme that became a viral sensation online in the last decade. 

“Now [Kobe’s] got me — I’m going to have to look at another crying meme for the next…” Jordan joked as the crowd erupted in cheers and laughter.

Best men’s travel shoes for every kind of trip

Best men's travel shoes for every kind of trip

Everyone knows that packing for travel is a pain. I consistently have to sit on my suitcase to get it to close, and it’s usually due to one thing: My shoes. 

I’m guilty of overpacking in general, but especially when it comes to shoes. I just want some travel shoes that’ll go with every outfit, sue me. 

NEXT STORY:

But as any pro travel knows, you should probably only bring around two pairs of shoes with you on each trip — counting the ones you wear on the plane, of course.

That’s easier said than done, though. It all depends on where you’re going. Sometimes, you end up going places where you need a shoe that can withstand a blizzard, but other times, you just need a comfortable pair of lightweight sneakers.  Read more…
