Do you teach at a private/religious school? Or is this a personal lens you want to use in the classroom? If so, which religion or religions specifically? What grade level?

Ok, important question: if I’m 50% a lady bachelor version of George Clooney, but without the fame or money (just charm and a nice smile) / 50% a version of Amal but without the accomplishments or global impact (just smart, attractive and tall) who should I date, other than myself??


As other global firms are calling their employees back to office ? Will pwc ac follow the same or will continue to provide option of working from home .

I've been thinking about a concept: essentially a decentralized exchange similar to Kyber, except it would also have the comparability to issue new tokens on the platform. A new ICO would be proposed on the exchange, and the issuer would be able to also upload information about the project (white paper, code, statement from founding team, etc). P2p would ensure that information uploaded would be linked to the original issuer and prevent false info on ICOs which is currently rampant. Investors could then use existing tokens they have listed on the exchange to stake into the new ICO under a set of rules established by the issuer using smart contracts (ex: first 1000 bitcoin would get x tokens per bitcoin, next 1000 would get y amount of tokens, funding is capped at a certain amount, or however they want to conduct their funding round). Issuer can also set a threshold to return funding if the adequate amount of seed funding isn't reached, in order to eliminate underfunding of projects which often drives coin values down to zero. After a certain amount of time on the exchange, the promised ICO coins would automatically be issued to investors and immediately listed on the exchange for trading.

Any coins staked on the actual exchange itself would generate a return of a percent of every transaction.

I think this would make ICOs very transparent, enable regulators to easily monitor ICOs, reduce a large portion of the risk associated with new coin offerings, and open the door for accountability for founding teams and potential legislative recourse. Right now, someone could write a white paper and a few thousand lines of code, pump and dump Reddit, issue an ICO, collect millions in bitcoin/ether, and then abandon the project with no transparency or consequence.

What are y'all's thoughts on this kind of protocol? It's just a curiosity that's been rolling around in the back of my mind for a while.

What do the requirements for equity partner look like at your firm? How is origination handled (ie once you bring in a client every new matter is your origination whether they called you or someone else at the firm, whether you do the work, and even whether for insurance clients the adjuster assigning to a colleague doesn’t know who you are)? My firm has one female equity partner- who doesn’t have a family. How can I work to change the mold for others to get there?

Hi everyone! Looking for feedback / suggestions. (6th Grade) I want to do a class read aloud & have students discuss different components & comp skills (types of conflicts, analyzing characters, etc…) but I feel like the high ones will be the only ones who talk, or the students will get off task & talk about other things. Any ideas on how I can gauge understanding w/o them just writing the answers down? I’m looking for a balance of open discussion & accountability.
