Had a fender bender last night in a late model BMW. Better to go through the 'insurance preferred' shop or find a local reputable shop?

Take it to BMW direct and insurance will cover it- pending decision on fault. Insurance shop may use after market parts to save money- not something you want to do with a late model BMW.

Insurance preferred so you can adjust claims later on if need be. I had a bumper replaced 2 years ago after a fender bender and it started coming loose last week, one of the brackets snapped. Insurance is taking care of it.

Thanks. That's my concern. I don't care who fixes it but I want to make sure they use the OEM parts.

Does your insurance policy specify OEM parts? If not, your insurer may not pay for them...

Is Accenture a good place to start in security for a new grad? I just got an offer for security consulting/analyst in the US commercial side.

My alternatives so far are being a junior SRE for a big insurance company or system engineer at a big retail company. Then I could make a lateral move from there.

Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
