On my new project they have a tradition where new people have to sing for the rest of them over zoom. I hate singing and do not feel comfortable doing this at all, especially since I live with my family. I’m scared that telling them that I don’t want to will reflect poorly on me and make me seem like I’m not a team player, but don’t see why I should have to do this since it’s not related to my job at all. Does anyone have advice as to how to maneuver this?
I work at a startup — our CEO has requested we have our video on during every call. I have a 5-6 calls a day. I think this is ridiculous. I will be leaving in the next 2-3 months. Is there a politically correct way to say this is too much? I have zoom fatigue and these demands are an example of how I’m working for a dictator and why I need out.
How are you feeling about working in the Workday space during COVID? How have things changed for you?
What it is incredible, is how we are still seeing new types of presentation of persons infected with Coronavirus
Has anyone asked for a raise during COVID? If yes, how did it go? We’re currently on a hiring freeze and incredibly understaffed for Q4 so not entirely sure how asking for a raise would go. Any advise helps!
ZS fishes, how often did you travel (fly days) before covid. And how often do you expect it post covid. Plus when do the NE offices expect to return to office/adopt the hybrid model. Starting at Princeton office this June* thanks!
Hi mamas, my sister in law just went into labor! What can I get them to celebrate / help them at home? For context, we already bought them a nice car seat and baby books as a baby present and we live very far away so no way of visiting to help out around the house (esp given Covid). Thanks in advance!!
Anyone get sleep apnea surgery and never have an issue afterwards?
Apparently, it’s normal to lose your sense of smell while using a CPAP. I’m not down with that. (And no it’s not COVID)
Hi all, is there any churches and gospel I can attend to on Sunday ? Or are they closed due to covid ? Thanks
Interesting papers about possible "trained immunity" for covid and other infections from the BCG vaccine
What's the new working model going to be in your organization post Covid: office all days, hybrid (1-3 days) or entirely remote?
Since Covid has made all meetings virtual, it has become completely commonplace at my company for people to be double and triple booked for meetings, with the expectation that they will jump between all of them, chiming in as needed and asking to be caught up on what has been discussed if they have missed something. This seems completely unreasonable/unworkable to me as standard practice but I have never worked in another corporate environment having come from private practice. Is this common?
First proper NYE in NYC / US (considering it's still safe to party in two weeks re: covid)... is kissing at midnight an actual thing? What do the single people in the clubs do, gulp your whiskey? Kiss a stranger (with consent)? Stand in silence?

I want to surprise my husband with a short RV road trip. He’s been wanting to do it forever but it’s never been appealing to me. We are in the dc/ va area. Recommendations for short trips around the area with an RV? Also, what’s a ‘short’ time frame for a trip where an RV is still justified? In my mind it should be 4-5 days at least? Or am I over thinking this?
Any sagar problems?

For those working in Intel, do you ever regret getting a clearance and not being able to WFH? I recently got cleared and feel the environment is making me unhappy but the security and money is decent. Not sure if I am pigeon holing myself to just intel work for the rest of my career...
