My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL.

Need to spend $400 to make Delta Platinum next year. Anyone an idea how to do this best with no time..? Just spend a Sat flying around or do you know other options?
Delta now the last airline to fly Mad Dogs... these srsly need to go already. Loud, dingy, no IFE, loud, small overhead bins, loud, and way too loud. Love DL but hate these so much.
Traveling during the Cubs game tonight and Delta of course has no live TV. Sad. :-( Go Cubs! ⚾️
Partner and I have 3-4 weeks to travel in August. We’re considering either South America or cross-country roadtrip within the US. We don’t own a car and car rental costs in US seem exorbitant.

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
I am planning to do masters in cybersecurity . I migrated from India where I did my under grad. 35 M working as M at Big 4 with 12 YOE and making 170k. I feel doing a masters from US will add to my knowledge and some brand value to my education space in my resume . Any good school recommendations for online masters ? Was thinking between CMU , Berkeley , Georgie tech . Would prefer something that doesn’t need GMAT, less than 100k total tution and good brand name . Thank you. !!!
