Anyone in the US - has anyone been successfully negotiated an offer while being pregnant? How did the recruiter and the team take it? At what point did you share the news?
Has anyone here used the "Read Scripture" app? It goes through the entire Bible and includes accompanying summary videos from "The Bible Project" (whose videos can also be found on YouTube). I love how it groups portions of Scripture and the videos are helpful for making meaningful connections with the text. I love these for myself, but they're super kid-friendly, too. Excellent support for your daily study. Enjoy!
I'm considering a Research Lead offer from a Series A start-up in NYC and admittedly don't really know how to evaluate it. First user research hire and the pay is US $178K plus stock options of 7100 shares. I think the pay is a bit low for the current market, but not sure how to assess the shares. I noticed they have no 401K or IRA, and they don't say anything about parental leave policies. Is this typical for a Series A start-up to not offer retirement plans? And is this fair comp? Thanks!

Pls no comments about how I don’t need to lose weight :)

Another question - These days does your parenting look more like a micromanager or a leader? What kind of parent do you want to be?
What is the best gift you got as a new parent? A coworker just had his first kid and went on paternity leave. I just started with the team but offered to send him a gift.

Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child. Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
