Looking to polish my rusty GIS skills

It's been a while since I did much with ArcGIS beyond making simple polygons by snapping to existing features, and my classes before that were with whatever version of ArcGIS was current circa 2007. What is the best way to get up-to-speed on ArcGIS version 10+, ArcGIS Online, and Esri Roads and Highways? Can you recommend online or book resources and tutorials? My current interest is related to transportation, for what it's worth.

To R or not to R

My office has recently had some funds open up and we are looking into investing in some statistical software to make our lives easier. We do a lot of work with distribution fitting, Monte Carlo analysis, and regression analysis with data sets that may contain left or right censored data. Unfortunately, we only have a few days to identify the best software package for our buck. Alternatively, the idea has been floated to download the free R software and spend the money on some training to get over the steep learning curve. What program or approach would be the best use of our money?

Corset newbie, seeks advice and tips

I just bought my first corset, a leather underbust (#305 from Orchard Corset) and would like some best practices from those more experienced! I am planning on learning to lace myself in, but considering that I've only actually gotten it on one time since it arrived, I'm open to ALL suggestions and helpful advice! (That one time is more because I just haven't HAD time to play with it, not because I'm scared or being a total klutz...) I particularly would like to know about what to wear UNDER it. I think I have tops that would look good, but again, knowing what works and what doesn't would be ever so helpful. Fashion pointers gratefully accepted! I am thin, and small framed, and plan to wear my corset in my daily life, and to work. Give me your best shots!!

Learn Adobe in a Flash

Two part question. 1.) Roughly how much does it cost for a company to hire someone to do one on one training for a new hire in Adobe Flash? 2.) Company likes you so much they offer you a job and are willing to pay out for your training on said and/or similar software, but give that as a reason for (insert too low salary range here) being the pay scale. You want to negotiate the best salary for yourself. Is it unheard of to ask for your salary to be increased the following year because the training will no longer be a hit to the budget?

Long vs. short distance running - in need of guidance on what's next

I've been running since 2007, and since then I've run three half marathons and several 10 milers/10k/5ks and what have you.

I think I want to transition to doing short distances and speedwork, but I'm not sure what I should focus on. [more inside]

2.5 km to 10km in a month?

Hello. I am signed up to run the Manchester 10 k on 26 May. I have never run any kind of race in my life before, and am REALLY „not sporty“ though I am used to hiking/cycling. I have not, to put it mildly, trained as much as I should. By now I can jog for 2.5 – 3 km in half an hour, and have mostly „trained“ on the treadmill rather than outdoors (I strained a muscle running outdoors and feel like it’s my muscles and joints that are most struggling with the running rather than anything „cardio“ related as such. So my actual question: is it still possible to get myself into a condition where I can get round the route without walking it and without injuring myself (too badly) in the remaining time?

Dog Runs Like Crazy Inside for No Reason

Advice on puppy house training in a flat.

I live in a 12th floor flat with a large balcony, 3m x 9m, which is enclosed, glazed, heated, pretty much counts as an extra room in the flat. It is tiled, and was once exposed, so has drains and is designed to withstand the elements. Could I house train a young spaniel pup in such an environment? Could I allow the pup to wee down the balcony drain in the short term, and would this make it difficult to train it to only poo outside? I don't mind accidents in the short term. Is it cruel to keep a dog in such a flat? The pup could have the run of this balcony until it is housetrained. I work at home, often from a desk on the balcony. So they pup would get lots of contact. I can happily provide 3 good long walks a day no problem, but I'm worried about the initial period. I live across the road from a dog friendly beach and park. Though it takes a few minutes to get from the flat to the road, which is ample time for accidents to happen.

Snooze, cuddle, snuggle, ATTACK!!!

What advice do you have for raising a happy, healthy and sane Australian Cattle Dog? We just adopted an 5 & 1/2 month old ACD/mixed breed puppy from a shelter and for the most part, she is a dream come true. She does have many of the less-pleasant but totally normal puppy behaviors like mouthing/biting when playing. We were told that she is a little socially delayed because she had diarrhea when she was transfered in from a high-kill shelter a few weeks ago. Treating the diarrhea threw off her vaccination & spay schedule, so she hasn't had much of a chance to socialize with other dogs and people until now. [more inside]
