Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
Anyone know of any good black financial advisors/ wealth managers? I live in the DC area. During all this COVID-19 related stuff it feels like a good time to make sure my finances are in order.
Help! I’m going to a delayed-due-to-covid evening cocktail wedding reception In October in central Massachusetts. I have a closet full of dresses and a black pantsuit, all appropriate, but some are several years old or dont fit perfectly. Since y’all are far more fashionable than I am , what looks would you suggest? I’m 52.
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Trump just aired what is essentially a campaign ad, attacking the press and praising his response, in the middle of the coronavirus briefing. He forced the country to watch this live.
Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?

Hey Londoners - Visiting from the US in November after a stopover in Paris. If I'm understanding correctly, I have to take a day 2 COVID test. Is it pretty easy to find a testing center? Have any of you been taking the Eurostar and dealing with this? Thanks!

Between Covid and protesting, how are you all staying sane in all this? I can’t focus on anything and I feel so much guilt on top of all the other stress.
Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
India: Are there anyone who applied for PF Advance (COVID) twice? I’ve availed it once but skeptical if I can apply again. Please shed some light!
Morale at my firm & group is at an all-time low (no COVID bonuses, departures en masse etc). Partners asked seniors directly to do something on Friday and they collectively (I think) decided they would not work on the weekend and passed it on to me - at least 4 seniors called me independently to check if I was “available” to deliver it to the partner on Sunday (yeah of course...), so it was very obvious that all 5 of them decided they would just ruin my weekend instead.
I find joy in reporting all the inaccurate information my “friends” on Facebook share about COVID
Well looks like the secret service might have covid as well. Nothing like driving a covid patient around with the windows rolled up
What's the 240000 deaths CNN talking about.

Hearing from this bowl that Accenture Strategy pays $105k base out of undergrad, vs MBB which at most seems to be at ~100k base atm. Will there be any move from MBB to match this base? Is comp progression slower at Accenture, leading to the short term higher base to be not as appealing? Curious as to others’ thoughts!
