UK Speed Reading / Effective Reading Courses

I am a bit dubious of all this "speed-reading" shenanigans. Is it real? Are these somewhat expensive courses actually worth the money? Has anyone done a course in the UK? If so, was it actually worthwhile? Can I learn to stop Sub-Vocalising without doing a course? I think thats the main thing slowing me down at the moment. [more inside]

Romantic / English Dinner Ideas?

Seeking ideas for plannning a multi-course, romantic, home-cooked meal for two that is also thoroughly, completely English. The more traditional the better. Looking for dishes in season, no seafood, ideally with a focus on lamb as a centerpiece and easy on the potato/bread. Other then that, assume a high level of cooking skill, endless time for fiddly bits, and acess to pretty much anything and a well stocked UK grocery importer store nearby. [more inside]

Which PMI-related courses should I take to obtain PDU's?

I am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP). I am always looking for good values in my ongoing education while also meeting PMI's PDU requirements. I also want to take those courses that others have found to be rewarding and useful for project managers' careers. Frankly, from what I've seen online and taken so far, it has been somewhat disappointing. I am looking for your recommendations. Are there any courses you can recommend? Thank you!

Online teaching of Python or R?

I've been asked by a colleague as to how they can learn programming for their professional advancement. Because of the area they work in, the possible languages would be Python or R. Complicating factors are that they (a) don't feel confident about self-learning and so (b) would like something more like a traditional classroom or workshop approach but (c) are in a remote foreign location, far from any educational facility, at least in their native language. So what we're looking for is an online classroom of sorts. [more inside]

Teach Me, Montreal!

What can I learn? (On a semi-flexible schedule). I'm in Montreal & would like to take a class in something. My problem is this: I feel like learning something new, but whenever I see a local/ community class that interests me, the date/time is usually inconvenient. I would love to have a list of instuctors (teaching either small groups or one-on-one would be ideal) of a wide range of topics who I could just call & set up a series of lessons. [more inside]

Which is better project management certificate program - Bellevue or UW?

Does anyone have any experience with the Project Management certificate programs at either Belleuve College (previously Bellevue Community College) or University of Washington Extension? Any comments on which is the better program? I'm thinking that the Bellevue program would be a better value career-enhancement-wise because of stronger connections to Microsoft and the tech industry in general, but UW is a better commute for me. This is for a person who has over 10 years of experience as a software developer and is looking at a career transition during the economic down time. Good understanding of and integration with Agile/Scrum would be a plus.
