How often do you guys see your parents normally in non-covid times? Do you feel it’s too little much or wish you could see them more? In my 20s I used to see them every other month but as I’ve “settled down” in my 30s it’s been harder with distance and spouse so it’s down to once a quarter. Feel quite guilty and sad about it
You know what F all those people who say “Why are we wearing masks at work? This sucks!” I am happy we have to, that way I don’t have to smell your disgusting breath in morning or after your lunch. If you have good oral hygiene and don’t want to wear a mask I am cool with you guys/gals. If not, put on a mask to save a life. If your COVID won’t kill us, your bad breath definitely will.
Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year. Have a wonderful school year!! God Bless All❤️
I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?
Which companies handled COVID the best? Lack of layoffs, prioritizing safety, being transparent, etc. I think this will be very important when we’re considering future job offers.
Has anybody had rebound covid? I had first symptoms around last Wednesday, was symptom free by Sunday, but feeling sick today (congested, headache, tired). Is this a known trajectory/ has anybody else had this?
Do you have to pay for your covid test? I was possibly exposed and went to an urgent care for the test. I have Aetna and they said it's free if ordered by the doctor.

So i have a question for any physicians out there. Out of all of these COVID-19 cases that develop PNA, how many have you seen end up septic? And do these septic covid patients respond well to the 3-6 hour sepsis bundles? Has there been alteration in the treatment for sepsis secondary to covid-19? Asking out of curiosity...

I am torn between moving to a product director role (unicorn fintech) vs continuing my current role (principal at a M&A strategy boutique, can make partner in 1-2 years) vs moving to corporate development roles (no offers yet). I have 16 years of experience, recent 4 yrs of which in M&A commercial due diligences. I see all three as attractive options, but is it a good pursuit to take a product director role at a recently turned fintech unicorn vs the other options?

Know myself enough to know it's time to get back into talking to a professional! Thanks in advance.
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
I work for a small firm (about 20 attorneys) and make 90k. I’m coming up for a raise discussion in a couple of months but don’t know how to go about it/what is reasonable to ask for. I bill about 35 hrs/week at 400/hr, so I think I deserve a bump, especially considering the posture of the market. Any advice/feedback from similarly situated associates or partners at similarly sized firms?

Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”
Thoughts? Which is more competitive for HSW MBA: Stay on 1 year and get promoted to manager at MBB (3 YOE at promotion) or exit as an associate to a top PE fund but forgo the manager promotion? Hoping to differentiate my app and could always try and exit after promo but aiming to apply in 2023 and would have very limited time in the new role
Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
