Id always use points if you get over 60 cents a point for mp or 1.80 per spg

If it’s the Courtyard Central Park in Rome, I would look for other options. It does not provide easy public transit access to central Rome, which I usually prefer while sightseeing. They do have a shuttle that runs once every hour and drops off at the Vatican. But if you miss the shuttle or are out past the schedule, you’ll have taxi/uber back

Scenario: You wrote a report with all the analysis and addressed your manager's comments. But your M brings in an undergrad intern to comment / edit your report, and the intern proceeds to essentially rewrite the thing, causing it to miss some key requirements.

I'm reading the situation as the M wanting to include the intern regardless of his/her contributions/qualifications. But this isn't making the report better or addressing the M's needs for the report. It's just creating more work...
