I flew Qantas on AA points May 2016. DCA>LAX>MEL round trip for about 70k points in economy.

Have done JFK-LAX-SYD on United First (only marginally more expensive with points than biz). Boatload of points, but you get so much space everywhere (lounge, cabin, seat)

Can do United biz roundtrip for 80k in economy and upgrade with 2 GS GPUs to business.

Going during Christmas. Flights were 300k+ on AA

Going into last night I had a 10 point lead with DeAndre Hopkins to play and a flex (David Montgomery or Allen Robinson) and my boss had Taylor Lockett. Thought I had this on lock and then Lockett decides to go off for 50+ points. Now I'm down 20 points with an open flex spot for Montgomery or Robinson. Leaning towards Robinson since Montgomery hasn't had a good game since Week 2. Thoughts?

Anyone know much about routers? My father in Leander has an incredibly fast Asus router, but his home is 7,000 sq ft and the signal completely dies when you go up the stairs to their mother in law suite where their tv is. Extenders don’t work well either. I suggested doing four Google mesh points but he wants to see if he can figure out with his current router. Anyone know how to set up an AiMesh router with Asus?

So with all the chat on here about how easy it is to get hired, are you as a hiring manager putting more emphasis into screening and challenging interviewees than before as a response?
