Stock Market Simulation

I'm working with a high school Economics teacher. He has asked that I find a site where we can run a stock market simulation for the students. Each team will have $100,000 to invest between Tuesday, and May 29th. My big concern is that this not turn into a massive pile of papers that is impossible to manage. Have any teachers done this before? What is the easiest way to manage stock market simulations? Do you have web sites that make it easier? Thank you for your time!

Want to study Masters online while traveling. Where to start looking?

I am specifically interested in sociology or history but I am wondering more generally about how credible these kinds of online programs are these days. I plan to travel around Europe and stay in various places for a month or two while studying. I am also wondering if there are any with an on-campus period component. Europe preferred (as that's where I will be based) but open to US/Australia/Canada as well. In fact, any background info about where to start looking or personal experiences would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Go Lean

I am self-taught Lean and Lean SixSigma but not certified because certifications are expensive and I cannot afford 4K+ price tags (my employer will not reimburse.) I found a few online training/certification courses that are affordable ($200-$500) from companies like this and this, but I am wary of these being valid. I use these methodologies in my current role, but the lack of any certification is problematic for career advancement and industry switching. Are these programs viewed as legitimate or are they a waste of my money?

How do I teach myself conversational Hebrew?

By way of Eytan Fox's movies, and plenty more after that, I have recently developed a taste for all things Israeli, and I want to learn basic spoken Hebrew. I will probably visit the country within the next two years and I like the idea of knowing at least a few words in advance. I have watched a ton of Isareli movies with subtitles, but all I've been able to gather so far were Shalom for Hello and Tov for good/well. [more inside]
