What would you do if a coworker asks you to disclose your salary info so that she can tell another person it, who is applying for a job (thinking since it was my first year and it will be hers and they would be similar)? It automatically made me feel uncomfortable and it’s someone I don’t have a great relationship with, but also don’t want to be on her bad side? How would you feel?

Does anyone use a science curriculum that they actually like? One with authentic learning, covers the necessary material, includes literacy components, where students are engaged, & there are scaffolding options built in? Bonus if it has a vertical alignment layout! I’ve asked every teacher I know across the US & this seems to be something that doesn’t exist. No one seems satisfied with their science curriculum. Question 2: what do you look for in a quality science curriculum? Non-negotiables?

I have a modeling test on Wednesday with a solar farm developer. On the phone interview that proceeded this, the CFO mentioned that these pro forma solar farm models are more nuanced than most. He mentioned bonus depreciation and tax credits among other things. Are there any good resources that I can use to learn about solar farm/renewable energy modeling? Also any general tips or things I should be aware of. If anyone could share a model too that would be awesome! Thanks for the help.

Own a townhouse currently, but venturing into investment property for the first time. Are condos a good idea in Jersey city, Hoboken area? Targeting the ones without the horrendous HOA obviously. Also hearing from the realtor that the play has to be that you say it’s your 2nd home to use on weekends or something like that so you don’t end up with higher down or high interest rates that are associated with a typical investment prop from lender standpoint. Curious to know how this works.
