I need recommendations on how to approach the “Santa” topic with a toddler. I don’t celebrate it in my culture so I’ve never believed in Santa. I don’t want to tell her that Santa will bring her gifts etc, but I don’t want her to feel left out when all her classmates and friends get gifts from Santa. But I also don’t want her to “ruin” it for her friends.. I don’t think she’ll be able to keep the “Santa isn’t real” secret to herself (Cont)

Two friends feel differently - one says the black fan is racist towards the white gf and the other says the fan is ignorant but not racist. What do you think? Please explain your stand. Thanks!

Kendall Jenner accused of cultural appropriation for starting a tequila company. Meanwhile, Jay-Z is a boss for selling half of his champagne company to LVMH.

Why are firms still so obsessed with geography? I applied to this firm’s Boston office because I loved the firm, culture, and practice, and half of my interview was about Boston. Sigh.

Hope everyone had a good start of the week! I have a quick question regarding MBB referal. I’ve been working for almost a year at a life sciences consulting firm with a PhD in STEM. Recently I've been considering to move to MBB due to project types, team dynamics, client interaction, etc. I've talked to friends in McKinsey and bcg (former case partners), they are very willing to refer me but they are relative new.
