Here’s a perfect example of totalitarianism, from an unelected official no less. You give them a finger, they’ll take the whole arm (and other organs if you’re below a certain age, but let’s leave that discussion for another day. Background: military, medical kept losing my record, received multiple doses of the same thing over and over, even the dreaded Anthrax series. This isn’t about the vaccine or preventing anything, this is about abuse of power and authority.

Let’s hear some stories of adversity and overcoming challenges. Socioeconomic, race, gender, disability etc. Work or personal. I think we all need some inspiration that we can overcome, no matter what.

Help! My husband and have a blended family and different views on CVD. I am vaccinated and my son tested positive a few days ago and has been sick. He's currently quarantined however my husbands HS son has been sick for 2 weeks and have completely disregarded all CDC protocol or school guidelines. I'm surprised his school has not sent him home. They work, play, anything they want. I am so angry and upset I am not sure what to do. I teach in another district but feel like I need to do something.
Does anyone know how insurance work when you leave a company? Say I leave on day X, does my insurance ends on day X as well or it will last til the end of the two week period after my last paycheck (because insurance premium is still held from paycheck)? And does medical insurance reimburse / cover based on the date of treatment or the date of they processing the claim? Thank you so much!

You took away our contribution awards, reduced bonuses, and now you're looking to take away the best medical plan in exchange for a shitty one. "Happy Easter kids"
Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help
Are there any good ways to make money outside of a typical career job? I’ve tried audit and currently in advisory. The job just makes me depressed, and I’m thinking the accounting space just isn’t for me. My husband works, so I don’t have to worry with medical benefits etc if I quit. We don’t have kids yet so I need something to keep me busy, and I would like to still have an income and make decent money. Any ideas?
Has anyone been approved for short term disability for depression? What was the process like?
Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.

Client trusts me. Confided in me that they are planning to shitcan the person I interface with weekly/daily. I feel for the soon-to-be unemployed...then again, they won't make life hell for me anymore
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
Has anyone successfully gotten MQD + MQS/MQMs retroactively applied to your Delta account when booking flights for your SO to join you on a trip? Doing Delta status challenge & curious if this works.

Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....
I had a final round of interview yesterday. At the end of the interview, the interviewer said ' let's stay in touch'. A bad sign, right? Should I give up the hope?
Happy Friday Everyone! How is school culture at your school this time of year? I am about to head to a staff happy hour and I hate how sometimes it turns into a gripe fest.
Last shot at H1B this time. Looking for options in Europe/UK. Any inputs/advise will be valuable. Thank you guys!
Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
I am a full stack developer (java) with AWS Certification. I want to switch company. Can anyone please refer me?
I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.
Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
