Thoughts on NIO. I have calls 6-8 months out returning 100% due to the jump this past two weeks. Should I hold on or take the profit? I think they are going to be big soon (trajectory similar to Tesla) specially given population in China, how controlled Covid is, how ahead they are in EV game. The only 2 downsides are it’s state run manufacturing and Tesla competition with Giga Shanghai.
Traveling to Portugal in September but considering postponing it due to Covid and its restrictions likely due to increased cases. If you have recently traveled to or lives in Portugal… can you share your experience in what pertains to covid restrictions? Are bars/restaurants open, etc.?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
I'm trying to do the 1 second everyday app to force myself to do something fun or diff daily even w COVID but I've decided a couple clips that are somehow under a second? Does anyone know how to extend them to loop or something so i can add them to the app? Using Google photos
How many of you are going to be celebrating outside after we bring it home today? Don’t want to miss out on once in a lifetime celebrations but covid is obviously very much still out there :(
Anyone here who has been or going thru arranged marriage prospects, at what point in the course of talking/ meeting do you bring up exclusivity? I am talking to this guy for 3 months given COVID we are not able to meet, but he also seems really into me, we talk everyday and go to sleep talking to each other, but recently I think he is talking to others too and my parents also want me to talk to more guys if I can’t finalize on him. How do I handle this gracefully?
You’re not crazy, alone or wrong, part 50a: Why can’t our country process information, change and suffering without using violence and anger so much? All but the wealthy have suffered enormously these last few years, but somehow our culture supports rage more than social or economic reform. Education (from bus drivers to board members), flight attendants, grocery store clerks, and waitstaff at restaurants have all recently and increasingly been targets of abuse and other violence. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/13/health/coronavirus-school-nurses.html
How do y’all get rid of this covid fat? Any tips for being consistent with workouts while working from home?
My friends and family think I have a tendency to be a little neurotic... anyone else in this boat? Any advice? I definitely have anxiety and can be a worrier but I’m not weird about cleaning or anything and I don’t let these worries hold me back from actually doing anything (besides covid stuff, and even then I’ve been on the lax side and go to stores and such).
Does anyone else with under 5 year old kids feel totally abandoned by society as mask mandates go away and people go “back to normal?” I’m at this point not as worried about my toddler getting super sick as I am about losing daycare for 5+ days. It feels like I can’t take her places (stores, on planes) now that I have to worry about someone unmasked, unvaxxed near her. After two years of this I feel exhausted and like the rest of the country simply doesn’t care about parents!
Trump: I wanted to downplay COVID because I didn’t want people to panic. Trump: If Biden wins, the stock market will crash, the suburbs will burn down, and you’ll have to learn to speak Chinese [sic]. 🚨 🆘
How do you deal with friends who get weird on you when you tell them you're not comfortable with certain activities during Covid times? Have you guys tried mending the relationship or just given up?
Wasn’t this rule already in place pre-covid?
Anyone talk to a girl(or guy) online and have great chemistry and are so attracted to them by their pictures and think wow they are so out if my league. When you meet, their pictures are clearly outdated(Covid 19) Not that I am a catch(average at best) but I always try to at least put current pictures and full body shots. We still had great chemistry and enjoy her company ￼and plan to meet again but it’s still hard not to be a little disappointed. ￼￼￼

Hey 🐠 I’ve left the city to be with family. My lease expires in September and even though I have a while to decide if I want to renew, I’m trying to think ahead. 2nd wave of Covid in the fall is supposed to be even worse than now. Would you resign? I’m worried if I do I’ll just end up coming back home and throwing $$ away on rent.
“There are 15 states where democrats control the governorship and the legislature. In these 15 states, new coronavirus cases have risen by an average of +42% over the previous 2 weeks. In the 21 states where republicans control both the governorship and legislature, the average rise in new coronavirus cases over the past 2 weeks was +86%. In the 14 remaining states where neither party dominates, new cases have risen +56% during the same period.”

How do you come to terms with just not being smart enough to get to the next career level? Currently a senior consultant and the partners seem super humanly smart and good at their job, I think this is as high up as my brain can get
#FirstWorldProblems is a stupid response on this platform. Of course our problems are "first world," we are high-earning business travelers.
Partner gave me dirty looks today after giving me a measly peasly bonus, knowing that I am a major flight risk in this market. I have also been ignoring his RFPs, as I am already booked for a different project. I love how the job market dynamic has changed.

I got an offer from Accenture today!!! Any folks know what a solid base for a Consultant (level 9) is? I was offered $92,000 base with a $5,000 bonus. I’m worried it’s a little low for a direct project placement hire...
