5,000 PQM short of what?

like

I’m 5,000 PQM Short of retaining Platinum Status with no planned travel for the rest of the year.

Make it an EOY vacation to somewhere warm. You've got the hotel points to make it happen. Google Flights is good for exploring inexpensive flights globally.

Several years ago I was backing in South America and I met an older guy (50s) who introduced himself as a writer & producer in LA for a well-known early 2000s sitcom. He invited me to breakfast at his hotel, we ended up hanging out for a couple of days & he convinced me to let him take some nude photos, which was actually pretty fun. Despite his efforts I didn't sleep with him, even though he was really pushy.
I googled him recently and apparently he's been arrested for SA other women

I have an offer from IBM, which I need to join from 30th June at Bangalore. Currently am at my hometown.
I asked the HR if there is any travel reimbursement and initial accommodation provided by them. The HR denied any such facility provided by IBM. And asked me to ask my manager once I have joined the company.
Any suggestions, as I have to travel only for the joining and traveling would be quite heavy on my pocket.

Partner called today to “flag” that I left the office yesterday at 5:40 after he gave me an assignment, and that he would expect me to be there until 8:00pm. I responded that I was told when I was hired that I would have the flexibility to make my own hours, and that seems to be contrary to that policy. If the policy is changing, then I requested my compensation be adjusted to reflect more time working, as the flexibility was part of why I agreed to join the firm. Too ballsy?

When I was hired, I don't recall being informed about my salary being tied to my location. My employment contract also only makes one mention of location, and says "home office" and my state. I was recently told by HR though that if I move, my comp. will be lower. Is this legal? Should I consult a labor lawyer?

In my mind, I don't recall being told this and it's not clear from my employment contract, so I feel like they're breaking our agreement, and it feels unfair.

Thoughts on what to do?
