I live in Denver so our lifestyle was always pretty socially distant and hasn’t changed too much, but I used to live in NYC and this struck me https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/09/nyregion/new-yorkers-missing-nyc-coronavirus.html
Dumb question here so please be patient. I’ve always paid my credit card bills on time so not familiar with how interest is assessed. I had a bill of $853.23 and accidentally paid only $853 for that statement period. Just got my new statement and there was $0.39 interest on a “balance subject to interest rate” of $25.34—how can the interest be greater than my open balance at $0.23? Also not sure where the $25.34 came into the picture. Is interest assessed on the entire statement balance?

Weird scenario - gave my 2 week notice at a previous firm in March 4 and left 18th. During that time bonus numbers came out and during my exit interview HR did state that “im not eligible for bonus”. Fast forward to today - bonus hit my account and checked my paystub on ADP which clearly stated “annual performance bonus”
Question - can previous company claw it back or am I free to use to it since it hit my account?

Do you need a postpartum doula to look after the baby and yourself? WHO actually looks after the mom after delivery to ensure that the uterus contracts, wounds are healing and that there are no complications? I know in certain countries in Europe a midwife comes for multiple days/weeks after birth to ensure that both mom and baby are doing well. How does it work in the US? Any options without paying for everything out of pocket?
