Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)

Lots of justified negative energy on FB. Here is my proposal- Let’s all make honest efforts to make work not just bearable but also respectful, empathetic, and productive for each other. We all have pain points at work and don’t always take ownership of how we’re the pain points for others. Hope everyone has a more positive day!

The real reason you need to be smart to go into consulting is in order to do the math on all those credit card and airline points.

Am I missing something? I’ve picked up Four Roses bottlings at various price points ($30-$90) and I find it consistently burn-your-gag-reflex-and-choke unpleasant regardless of age. I swear it makes me cough every time I drink it, and I don’t find this in other bourbons from my stash (Blantons, Michters, Makers, Knob Creek, Bulliet). It’s not an ABV issue either as I’ve enjoyed many cask-strength bottles. What’s with the Four Roses love?

Hi I have a real question that is going to cause a lot of controversy but it gets me so upset every time this happens. In casting and director searching, the request is always “non-white and female if possible”. It’s like I get more ‘brownie points’ for the most diverse person I can find. I don’t remember the last time I posted a casting request and was allowed to ask for white applicants. Isn’t this reverse discrimination? This can’t be the answer to equality. Am I crazy or unfair??
