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.

If you’re looking to get a taste of the PM lifestyle, earning a certification is a good place to start. And this project management certification training can get you on the right track.

The bundle includes 11 courses comprising a total of 2,738 lessons. Some of the courses focus on more intangible notions like decision making, while others will prepare you to earn certifications in widely recognized project management techniques.

For example, the Scrum Certification Prep + Agile Scrum Training course will help you master the Scrum project management method, a widely used methodology that’s especially valued in tech industries. It’s taught by Paul Ashun, a consultant with over 20 years’ experience in Scrum-based project management.

Other courses concentrate specifically on exam prep. There are a number of recognized project management certifications, and these lessons will help you validate the information on your résumé with a concrete qualification.

You’ll prepare to take the Risk Management Professional Exam, and begin learning about how to take the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam, a popular qualification for project managers working in any organization.

The bundle is currently on sale for just $45.99 and is worth every penny.

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.

“I told my wife I wasn’t going to do this because I didn’t want to see that for the next 3 or 4 years,” Jordan said. “That is what Kobe Bryant does to me.” 

Jordan famously wept during an infamous 2009 Hall of Fame induction speech. From there “Crying Jordan” became one of the internet’s most popular memes, his tear-soaked face jokingly inserted into countless situations.   

Jordan’s speech about Bryant at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Monday was heartfelt, touching and widely praised. 

“He was like a little brother … and I just wanted to be the best big brother I could be,” Jordan said. 

Bryant idolized Jordan and famously modeled the way he played basketball after the former Chicago Bull, widely considered the greatest of all time. 

“When Kobe Bryant died, a piece of me died,” Jordan said through tears toward the end of his speech. 

Locust plague: Day turns to night as ‘biblical plague’ of prophecy falls on Middle East

“These are locusts on a biblical scale. It’s catastrophic, it’s cataclysmic, it’s apocalyptic and it’s happening right now.

“We’ve been talking about it for a while but guys, now it has turned the skies black, which takes us to two places in the Bible.

“You’ve got to go to Exodus Chapter 10 and the plagues of Egypt, and you’ve got to go to Revelation 9 and the smoke and the locusts that come out of the bottomless pit.”

In Exodus 10, God sends a devastating plague of insects upon Egypt to punish the Pharaoh for enslaving the Jewish people.

The scripture reads: “This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, so that they may worship me.

Millie Bobby Brown: The ‘Sexualization’ And ‘Insults’ Hurled At Me Are Painful

Millie Bobby Brown is celebrating her Sweet 16 by getting real about the public scurrility she receives.

The “Stranger Things” star turned 16 on Wednesday and marked the occasion by sharing a video on Instagram that features several harsh (and slightly ridiculous) headlines about her as Justin Bieber‘s “Changes” plays in the background. These headlines are soon followed by red carpet and behind-the-scenes footage of Brown in which she’s often shown laughing and smiling.

In her caption, Brown expressed a desire for a cultural shift toward positivity.

“I feel like change needs to happen for not only this generation but the next,” she wrote. “Our world needs kindness and support in order for us children to grow and succeed.”

She then emphasized how difficult it is to grow up in the spotlight when negativity is constantly directed at you.

“The last few years haven’t been easy, I’ll admit that,” she wrote. “There are moments i get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualization, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me.”

But just like in her video, the post pivoted to a message of hope while laughing in the face of adversity.

“But not ever will i be defeated,” the actor wrote. “I’ll continue doing what i love and spreading the message [of kindess] in order to make change.”

This isn’t the first time Brown has been outspoken about the impact unsolicited wrath can have on a child.

In January, Brown gave a speech at the United Nations about being bullied at school and, more recently, online.

“Bullying and online threats are never harmless,” Brown said. “Never just words. It puts children’s mental health at risk. It causes stress, and in the most extreme cases … it can lead to self-harm, sickness and even suicide.”

Canadian Scientists Give Vicious Name To Newly Discovered T.Rex Relative

Scientists have discovered a dinosaur that is a close relation of Tyrannosaurus rex and is nicknamed the “reaper of death.”

The animal was 8m (26ft) long and a relative of the T.rex, researchers said.

It is called “Thanatotheristes degrootorum” – the first word is Greek for “reaper of death”. It is also named after John and Sandra De Groot, the couple who found the fossils on the shore of Bow River in Alberta, Canada.

The Discovery was made by a team of researchers from the University of Calgary and the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.

It is the oldest tyrannosaur species ever found in Canada.

Darla Zelenitsky, assistant professor of dinosaur palaeobiology at the University of Calgary, told the AFP news agency: “We chose a name that embodies what this tyrannosaur was as the only known large apex predator of its time in Canada, the reaper of death.”
