Another school shooting. 3 dead including the shooter. When does it end?
Hi, I need to get an appointment for my L1 visa (moving from L2 to L1). I understand my spouse needs to do another DS-160 for her L2 visa renewal right? Do we need to book 2 separate appointments on the same day? Or she can come to my appointment without appointment ? TIA
Hi All, currently Visa is approved, stamping is yet to be done... But the package is 60k only and I heard from colleagues who are already there, that this is not sufficient... I am working at a package of 12 LPA in India, and I think switching is the best option rather than going to US. Need your opinion please

I’ve been hired by a health benefits startup with only consulting experience. Any recommendations for books, blogs, or online course material to get myself as oriented as possible before starting in 2 weeks?
As a public h.s. teacher, I see how the k-12 education system breeds the wrong mindset for students to reach their highest potential. They're taught to memorize facts to take a test and the carrot on the stick is their grade- which is an extrinsic motivator. They chase the "A" and will cheat at any moment to get it. They're taught to avoid failure which in turn reinforces the idea to stay inside their comfort zone when real growth happens when they step outside of it. Thoughts?
I’m sure this won’t come across well but I have to say it… my husband and I make good money (about $600k combined) and are grateful for it but these Biden tax increases are going to kill us. The truly rich don’t get hit hard meanwhile it sucks to be an upper middle class family. No matter how much I make somehow my take home seems to keep going down.

I participate in Fantasy Football every year, BUT I don’t watch any of the games. In fact I’m not even a fan of football, yet I place in the top 3 every alternate year! My fellow league players hate me 😂
Does anyone know if I can move from a PwC firm in one country to another? Thanks in advance.
How do you move forward back into "normal" after the sudden and tragic loss of a student? I had them twice a day along with their grade-level classmates. Our entire secondary is affected because we are so small. It's so hard to even comprehend my own emotions let alone my students.
How do you guys negotiate multiple offers.
I am a very bad/dumb 😅 negotiator.
Whenever HR discussion happened they " this is the maximum they can provide according to my years"
In some cases i got lower than what I am currently holding and got the above reason.
Couldn't refuse as I liked the company.
Fearing they might not offer anything.
Thing is refusing to hr offer during negotiations does really results in losing the offer Or saying no if it doesn't meets expectations will not do any harm.
I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?

Time machine! You get to go back and restart your career in any speciality (and there’s a job for you in it). What do you pick (and what do you change from)?

Happy Saturday, y’all! I work for a boutique consulting firm that models itself after Big 4. Curious to know what first year analyst are doing as far as average number of assessments per month, how many projects, etc. Not looking to move because I love my company, and I feel like my WLB is great, but interested to know how we compare to the larger firms.
Does anyone know acceptance rates at big 4 type firms versus boutiques? Most assume big 4 are harder to get into and more prestigious than boutiques or lower level firms. I’m at a mid tier firm so I’m fairly neutral in this. I’ve worked with highly intelligent, and highly incompetent, consultants from either type of firm. Would love to hear your thoughts on this and any data you have. Sometimes I wonder why big 4 is so highly revered when work products I review are less than stellar.
