I filed my STEM OPT report late this year due to delays from the legal team and my intl advisor encouraged me to retain proofs in case I get in trouble filing for h1b or green card in the future. Is it appropriate to just screenshot the work emails + dates and send it to myself? What’s an ethical way of doing this?

The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died.

My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.

How would you answer if interviewer ask you why you want to switch from B4 to B4? My honest answer is getting a job in other b4 seems easier than internal transfer but how can I say nicely..? Lol
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
