Deroy Murdock: On coronavirus and nursing homes, DeSantis and Cuomo offer life-and-death contrast
Pre check ord term 1 worst ever.
My go to grab and go at LGA terminal D is a premade chicken salad sandwich. Team member just saw me and couldn’t believe I’d eat that at an airport. Am I crazy or should I keep doing me?
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
Hey San Jose fishes, any perfect cafe or restaurant (spacious though) recommenced for a date? Don’t want to go in those small crowded ones...
I’m planning to spend 8 months in NYC/NJ - need a place with easy access to EWR. Any recommendations?
Coming into Manhattan from LGA. Wtf is going on with the queens bridge?! Is traffic always like this here?
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.
Wtf ORD 😳
PHL is a fucking shit hole
what's the best car you've been upgraded to? mine was a BMW X5 at SFO and a Mercedes GLE at LAX
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
What are you doing with your portfolio with the upcoming election? 1. Selling some stocks and clearing up powder to get the best deals 2. Holding what I have and DCA as always 3. Selling everything as I think it's going to blow up like 2008 Also indicate your typical investment horizon.
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
Just heard that my school district is laying off at least 23 positions due to covid19. Is this happening all over the country? worried.
Not in busy season right now but slammed with a ton of work for a month end deliverable. Team is working super long days and everyone on my team (at least associates/seniors) is feeling super burnt out and morale is super low ☹️ any tips on how to increase team morale? I know it’s hard for most people right now as we come up on the 1 year mark of covid lockdown in the US.
I hate taxis, but seems to be the fastest way to get off the airport in ATL right now... Uber needs to negotiate a better deal than waiting off airport.
Has anyone else ever thought of moving overseas? Just came back from vacation, so I'm not sure if it's me dreading work or if I really like the country.
The role I’m interviewing for has an opening for the same position in the city I want to move to. The problem is that the recruiter mentioned that relocation is unlikely atm because of covid. If I were to receive an offer, is there any room to negotiate relocation at a later time? How long do people normally work at an agency before switching office locations? This agency is 100% remote if that makes a difference.
Hi 🐠, is there any good 1-yr program in the US? MBA or alternative programs? I would like to get a masters exposure but cannot afford spending 2 years away...
Someone, give me a virtual high five cause that’s the only raise my firm has been giving me
Where is our money?

Hi all! New to consulting and I received an offer from Deloitte as a consultant under F&EP within GPS. Any pros/cons to F&EP? How’s the work life balance? I assume it’s project-based but I would love to hear others’ experiences
Anyone one have insights on protivi? Culture , leadership, prospects? Have an interview coming up with them and want to make sure I am not wasting my or their time. Thanks
I am in a self-contained cross category room. Grades 2-4. We have kiddos who need to be placed in therapeutic schools but those schools are understaffed due to Covid — their staff found other jobs during the shutdown—and so can’t take them. Several of our kids are huge. I have been slammed hard on the back, chased around the room to hit me, kicked, bitten, clawed, hair pulled. Is anyone else experiencing heightened behaviors?
Hi Guys Does anyone knows about Virtusa ? They are offering me considerably high offer compared to others but I am not sure as I don't know much about the company or anyone who works there ? Project is Legato Healthcare. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙏 YOE- 6 Skill - Dot Net Full Stack
What’s everyone’s experience with traveling these days - how often and for what reasons? And where do you anticipate it going? I’ve left consulting but considering coming back, under the assumption that the regular 4 day travel week is basically not coming back (tho obv client / project specific and certainly will make sense sometimes). Am I nuts?
I am turning 30 soon. Had paid off my student loan and other debts (except my home mortgage). Making almost $100K a year and have saved around $45K (stocks + 401K). Want to know how am I doing?
Reasonable wait time on a Rolex explorer 1? No established relationship with an AD. Would be looking to purchase in the fall after promotion (fingers crossed)
Need some advice... I started at a new agency recently. Almost immediately upon meeting one of my male colleagues (over zoom) I felt this attraction and genuine connection. Context: he’s 11 years older than me but both of us are single, never been married, no kids, etc. he’s not my boss and we don’t technically work together on projects. I want to get to know him better but don’t really know how to approach the situation (or if I even should) without it being inappropriate or awkward. Thoughts?
