Help! Flying to Frankfurt with connection in Amsterdam next week. Covid testing rules are not clear when checking the airline website - does anyone know what tests we need to take to entry? Do we need to clear both Netherlands (Schengen entry) and Germany (final destination) requirements or just the final destination ones? We are vaccinated.
Looking for a referral at top US consulting firms that do sponsor H1b visa transfer. I am based in LA but open to any locations in the US. I have over 10 years of consulting experience. Thank u for your time and help!

Looking forward to what Sprint Qualifying throws up 🙌🏻
I imagine if nothing goes wrong then order at the end of Sat will be order of pace but I'm sure (or at least I'm praying) some mid-field runner will do something crazy and end up causing an issue to a front runner and that will make Sunday interesting.
What are your thoughts?
Do you all think it'll just be: use softs on Fri set fastest pace, use mediums on Sat and finish in order they qualified, and then 1 stop Med-Hard strategy on Sun?
Pasted a list from excel to PowerPoint however when I try to make them bullets, PowerPoint reads it as a group of text (only puts a bullet for the first line). Can manually delete and press enter for each line to get a bullet but curious if anyone has a quicker solution?
I have an offer with Accenture in hand..and I had confirmed my decision of joining with the recruitment team when they asked again. Now I have got a different offer and thinking to join there. Accenture has been sending onboarding related mails. Should I inform them regarding my change of decision over mail. Will it cause any issue??

First day on the job like
Anyone have a CFE designation and taken the test recently? Debating about getting it wasn’t sure if it’s worth it.
I got my period as soon as the guy I’ve been seeing got here yesterday after weeks apart so that’s cool.
My wife and I are looking for a local nanny share. Due to the nature of the other couple’s work in the GOV, they want to ensure it’s payroll and not cash under table for the year contract. That sole point is turning away amazingly fit Nannie’s we’ve interviewed as apparently the cultural norm is to commit tax fraud. I’d get it if it were for a summer, but this is a year contract including PTO and holidays coming to roughly ~$25K annual.
Anyone deal with this before? Or know of a solution?
Does the results of the leadership reviews in the NextGen program reported to anyone or is it confidential to the reviewee only. I received a request to fill out peer review for a Next Gen candidate
3D printing. Industry on the uptrend, and most stocks still massively off their 2014 highs.
SSYS would be a 6x return just to get back to ATH, and has been flat for 5 years. It’s currently at the low end of that range. That tells me that the risk is low compared to the potential/likely reward over enough time. Using this kind of strategy was successful for me with crypto. What do folks think here?
Anyone have other similar investment ideas?

(The e-reader version is only $0.99) Spark Brilliance: How the Science of Positive Psychology Will Ignite, Engage, and Transform Your Team https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09SNLCW7Q/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_F3M21RCQ9KTGGQDMRVA7
Finally a bowl of like-minded people! I love reading but finding it’s so hard to find people to discuss what I read.
Just read Super Pumped!! Made me realize only a madman like Travis could’ve upended the taxi/ car industry. Anyone else read it?
How do you make time for reading in your schedule? Is it something you do in the early morning? On breaks? Before sleep? I can never seem to fit it in
Do you read multiple books at once? Power through one at a time? Do you set a page or chapter daily/weekly goal? Only do audiobooks? Please share your reading habits so we 🐟 can borrow/steal like artists 🎨.
For me, I set 20-30 pg min/night and listen to a different audiobook to/from work. The audiobook thing is new as I've never read >1 at once. Considering 1 chapter/night w/ 3 different books (3 ch/night)... I just want to read them all though not sure - may muddle if one > others.
I am reading "the 48 laws of power" by Robert Greene and wondering whether it still applies in today's corporate world.
Best book for personal development you've read recently? Specifically interested in anything related to motivation, discipline, getting organized, daily habits, etc. I'm really trying to grow in this area
Do you use audio books or find them useful?
Loving this new bowl! Please share your favorite business books with me. Topics of interest are personal finance, career, entrepreneurship, and life-work-balance and joy.
Currently reading Invisible Women. Very eye opening book and highly recommend for fellow males to read it.
I thought it would be good to have a bowl where we can post book reviews / recommendations.
