Here's an excerpt from today's Chicago Tribune: "State officials ...reported 625 new known <COVID> cases, which pushes the statewide total to 129,837."
So this number of cases - 129, 837 - that's cumulative, right? Meaning, as more cases are identified, their numbers are added to the total. But wouldn't some people recover by now, which would mean that there are significantly fewer than 130K sick people in the state?

Is it reasonable to be expected to spend 20-30 non-billable hours a month checking your paralegal’s work? (i.e. summarizing hundreds of records and bills). The partner said he “didn’t use paralegals” at his previous firm and eating the time is an “investment in yourself.” Is this common?

I can't imagine my life without my dog but she's regressed so much since we moved and the potty training has been even worse than her puppy days. I've literally sat and cried out of frustration.

Every two steps forward feels like 20 steps back. I'm feeling really disappointed in myself because I know it's my fault ultimately. Today started off rough but it's gotten better. I hope we stay on track. 🐕❤️

Wanting some advice. I manage higher up’s close friend and they are not qualified to do the work. I have been trying to steer the person in the right direction for weeks, & they don’t take feedback well and blame others. There was a particular meeting where this happened in front of others & they got frustrated and this got back with my boss and I’ve been told I need to work on empathy. The irony here is in past reviews my strongest feedback has been my relationship building skills.

I was working for ad agency here in Minneapolis and they reached out to me on LinkedIn without a job description saying that they wanted a seasoned digital project manager which I am. I accepted the offer and started working for this agency and now 6 months in they are asking me also do Wireframes and Content planning together with a project manager role as their team is super small and they do not have dedicated ux/ui and seo members in place.I said that is not my part of the job and parted.

More often than not, PM owns the tasks of ensuring their team and agency log their time, but I argue that it is not our sole responsibility. Finance and Leadership often stray away from penalizing offenders. Other than including job numbers in subject lines, statuses and meeting invites, how do you encourage your teams to log tine weekly (regularly)?
