Desi bowl leaders now blocked DD from the bowl for asking to take action against personal attacks and name calling! Cancel culture at its best.

Can I just say that I ***love*** that the Charlie Kirk post in this bowl received the ***total disregard*** it deserved (unless I missed a reply just at the end) before getting taken down? Teachers are a classy and intelligent bunch!
(24M) I have around 10k saved in my credit union savings account. Thinking about putting a decent amount in a high yield savings account like GS’s Marcus to start compounding interest. I’m not very knowledgeable in investing as I didn’t grow up with a lot or have parents who were money savvy. Does anyone have recommendations on how to navigate the investing landscape? Honestly it’s a little overwhelming and I just feel lost. Should I invest in CDs, index funds, start a Roth IRA ? So many optins

Looking forward to what Sprint Qualifying throws up 🙌🏻
I imagine if nothing goes wrong then order at the end of Sat will be order of pace but I'm sure (or at least I'm praying) some mid-field runner will do something crazy and end up causing an issue to a front runner and that will make Sunday interesting.

I am on H1b visa. Booked tickets to Mexico long back. Is it a good idea to make an international trip with all these immigration issues? Totally confused..
Just absolutely disgusted at the state some attorneys leave their cases in when they know they’re leaving a firm. I’m sitting here drowning in deadlines that a former associate completely ignored. Trying to triage cases from deadbeat outgoing attorneys is infuriating. Honestly, don’t be this person. This bridge is so completely burned my entire firm has soured on this associate and it will be known that their cases were left in disarray.

Anyone know how Leo’s design is doing lately?
After reading posts from the bowl, My brain to me:
There is so much of toxicity and hatred. Marriage fear and uncertainty however that is true to some extent. But sometimes wonder what kind of world we are in the making and why are we becoming so toxic as a generation.
I read somewhere, We kept saying "Accept it as it is, now the world is full of toxic people. There has to be an order in the upbringing and societal behaviour but we have lost all that on the name of freedom and my choice."
My husband and I are going to New Orleans for a wedding at the end of October. We’re not big drinkers. Any recommendations on what to see/do?

My experience thus far (5 years) is on the private side of investing (private equity, private credit....) but I’d like to transition into a business development / relationship focused role versus modeling and analytics.
