I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.
Stock market looking great. Unemployment numbers improving already with so many states still waiting to open. Hope we can rebuild our great economy and bring it back to pre-covid numbers soon🙏
Lots of new testing in the next week. The number covid cases is about to go way up. But the mortality rate is also about to crash.
Has ghosting gotten worse during covid?
Do you think post-covid that companies will ever keep their tech employees in NYC? I’m a software engineer for a financial company and already am probably one of the last people to RTO if/when that happens. But now I’m thinking that this situation has proven that they don’t need to take on the costs of having SWEs in a HCOL city if all of us can WFH/work from a LCOL city with same results. Kinda bummed bc I’m a new hire and I never even got to move there... should I lower my expectations?
Even without covid, it seems like jobs are getting harder and harder to find. Why is this?
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
It is going to be fascinating to see how we view the fighting over school mask mandates in 20-30 years once we have more historical context and perspective. It’s so crazy to me how divisive that question has become, whether students should have to mask
In one month we cleard out a 5000 sq ft office space and turned it into a lab running high throughput COVID pcr tests (600 per day rn).
Interesting read on an epidemiological study done on the correlation between universal BCG vaccination policy and reduced morbidity and mortality for COVID-19. (This hasn’t been peer-reviewed) https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.24.20042937v1.full.pdf
Does anyone at Accenture have insight on if candidates that received verbal offers prior to Covid-19 will still get written offers within the coming months?

Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
So like a lot of us, I've put on some considerable weight during covid. I had to go into office but everyone's wearing casual - so I bought myself a pair of Good American jeans so they'll hold evening together lol. I bought size 2(my precovid size) & 4(my current size). I could fit myself in size 2 & decided to just put those on instead of size 4. And boy was that a mistake. Ugh - if I sit, it's uncomfortable. If I stand - it's uncomfortable. Ugh. No question here. Just sharing my life today.
Due to COVID, Deloitte in Australia just announced 20% pay cuts, still working 5 days a week, and no promotions till January 2021. What would you do, what’s the options?

I just took a 60k salary cut to get experience in a new category. Also not working with a-holes. That’s a plus.
Big 4 folks, if regional and even local CPA firms pay similar with better work life balance.... why not bounce ? (For folks who want to stay in public or don't know about going to industry yet).

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
