Configure Outlook calendar with internal vs. external colors/categories?

I color code my Outlook calendar using categories to keep track of multiple projects I manage at work. I have a fully established personal color-coding system, but the admins have just mandated that we switch over to their system. Is there anyway to configure it so that I preserve my color-coded categories in my view, but everyone else sees a different set of colors when they look at my calendar? [more inside]

Does this iPhone case exist?

I'm looking for an iPhone 8 case that includes a backup battery but also allows wireless charging, plus a built-in Lightning-to-headphone adapter while also allowing use of the Lightning port. Oh, and I want the Lightning port converted to micro USB. Does this exist? I know I'm asking for a lot. Some of it exists though! [more inside]

How should I help keep the world from changing?

I would like to start actively working for one cause, and have decided my cause should be climate change, or more accurately, averting/preparing for climate change. There are a lot of environmental groups out there. What effective Toronto-area and/or remote access environmental activist group could someone with chronic fatigue issues and no money join and be of use to?

Change management training

I've got the opportunity at work to do some change management training and wondered if anyone had any experience of either the Prosci or APMG Practitioner courses? Any info on how you found the course and how you've used it afterwards would be helpful, and bonus points are available if you work in the public sector or, even better, higher education.

Successful application of Scrum?

I may be one of the few people who enjoy bid management and fundraising. I am good at documentation management, procurement, recruitment, and development. However, I am looking for ways to be a better manager of campaigns and people where we may only have a few weeks to a month turnaround as well as managing the larger scopes these programs fall under which can last multiple years. Would Agile/Kanban/Scrum master training would be a good way to get these skills? Is there a way to understand discipline differences better for their applications?

Country Video

I'm looking for an old country video, from the 80s probably. The main setting of the video is in a restaurant and the singer is on a date. There are plastic ketchup and mustard bottles on the table, and I think a checkered table cloth. Other scenes from the video include classic US Southern trees and covered bridges. I don't know who sings the song but the music is 80s country lite, along the lines of this Ronnie Milsap song. Halp? [more inside]
