All I can think of right now is the old REM song lyrics "It's the end of the world as we know it." I definitely DON'T feel fine. I'm not sick, but I'm sick about the US shutting down everything.

No, its not the end, but a little change will do us all some good. There is this saying, "and thus too shall pass." We will get through this ad before, and hopefully, we will all be better from this. Hang in there.

👆🏻I agree! Yes, this is inconvenient to say the least but we are being forced to stop and look around -which is a good thing - usually our lives are crazy hectic. I’m spending time and having conversations with my kids -this is a good thing. Even the level of pollution in China and Europe has dropped significantly since this whole thing started (NY Times). Some good always comes out of some bad. Hang in there it will be back to normal before we know it.

I know it feels like the end of the world, but it's also highlighting things that aren't working and need to be fixed. we've overcome much worse things... we will overcome!

I keep thinking of an old tv ad with the ending line, “It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature.” The pandemic lowers total population and slows the production of goods-improving water and air quality. Is this Mother Nature reminding us to be respectful?

I think that it is important to stay positive. As the Govenor of California said, "This is just a moment in time". We all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and our neighbors healthy. Soon we will be referring to events as bc (before Corona) and ac (after Corona).

This was said by our governor today-"He also offered what he called “personal advice," saying that New Yorkers should focus on controlling the things they can, such as mentally preparing for the emotional toll of time at home or physical isolation. Everyone’s lives will be very different for four, six or nine months at least, he said, and people should be prepared for adjustments." I don't know if he is saying he expects we will be locked down for four to nine months-I cannot even begin to imagine living like this until Christmas. I honestly don't think people will comply with lockdown for that long of a period. Then what will they do-have tanks and armored guards everywhere?

Anyone have experience filing a bar complaint against an opposing counsel for making racist remarks to you? I was present on a virtual conference when this occurred and was not even speaking during this meeting. This is highly unprofessional and I am just sick of this and want to do something.

I am hoping to secure a position as a mental health director or behavioral health director for a virtual medical platform/organization (not a private practice). I am a psychologist. Does anyone have ideas about what would be an appropriate salary range for a position like this? I have a pretty solid background for this type of position (would be 1-2 steps up depending on structure) and have been in the field 15+ years. I am looking for a starting off point for salary range suggestions. Thanks

Okay, I’m just going to say I’m deeply ashamed that I work for adam&eve DDB London. IMO it’s become a nasty, toxic environment run by robots.

So many people are struggling and we pride ourselves on not giving help. I need out. It’s so elite, jumped up and unsustainable.

Hello, all. First time here. I would like to get some advise. I have over 13 years of Food Safety experience in the retail and manufacturing sectors. Recently, I relocated from Dallas to Puerto Rico with the goal in mind to have my daughters closer to family. As you may know, Puerto Rico is huge in pharma and medical device, and there is a lot of opportunities. However, there is not much for food safety professionals, unless you cook. Do you think is time for a career change?
