I’m so confused why we can’t just all get vaccinated, wear masks and continue living nicely. I don’t see a difference between getting vaccinated for covid and vaccinated for Polio? How’s there even an argument with all the data we have…
Has anyone flown back to LAX recently from an International (India) trip? What testing is being done for Coronavirus? How much additional time should I factor in for that after arrival?
So like a lot of us, I've put on some considerable weight during covid. I had to go into office but everyone's wearing casual - so I bought myself a pair of Good American jeans so they'll hold evening together lol. I bought size 2(my precovid size) & 4(my current size). I could fit myself in size 2 & decided to just put those on instead of size 4. And boy was that a mistake. Ugh - if I sit, it's uncomfortable. If I stand - it's uncomfortable. Ugh. No question here. Just sharing my life today.
PI plaintiff’s attorneys: Is anyone else dealing with adjusters coming in with extremely low offers and using COVID as leverage to settle?
Considering a post Christmas trip to Panama City, Panama. Is this a good place to visit? Covid restrictions seem bearable and it’s not outrageously priced. How long is too long to visit? Any input/recommendations welcome. Thanks!
This is a fact that fans of Trump either chose to ignore or just don’t give a damn. I find it embarrassing that people are enthusiastic about a man that proclaims that he beat it ( with a heavy dose of privilege and tax payers money) and mind numbingly claims that ‘don’t be afraid of covid’ ? This is the reality people that our president don’t like to tweet about
Firm holiday party is cocktail attire but I have a dress I’ve been dying to wear since before COVID. It’s this one but in black. Thoughts?
Even without covid, it seems like jobs are getting harder and harder to find. Why is this?
I am in a self-contained cross category room. Grades 2-4. We have kiddos who need to be placed in therapeutic schools but those schools are understaffed due to Covid — their staff found other jobs during the shutdown—and so can’t take them. Several of our kids are huge. I have been slammed hard on the back, chased around the room to hit me, kicked, bitten, clawed, hair pulled. Is anyone else experiencing heightened behaviors?
Has anyone had any luck reducing rent with current landlord or actually broken their lease? Resigned pre COVID and now everyone is getting 2 months free on a new lease. Would probably save by breaking the lease and moving to a better area that is also cheaper. NYC based
Got an appointment with a dentist / orthodontist today but have been second guessing going due to General Covid concerns. Anyone felt similar or have advice?
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Interesting read on an epidemiological study done on the correlation between universal BCG vaccination policy and reduced morbidity and mortality for COVID-19. (This hasn’t been peer-reviewed) https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.24.20042937v1.full.pdf
Anyone else concerned about the long term negative effects of working remotely? Seems to be a minority viewpoint, but I question whether this is sustainable post-Covid for personal, psychological, and profession-specific reasons.

Can anyone help me get a job in google in the finance sector .. I just got laid off from work due to Covid-19. I have over 10 years of experience
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
Serious question! I’m an agency recruiter. We’ve all had an amazing year. COVID brought a lot of lay offs and now companies need agencies to restaff. We’re looking at amazing commissions but I know this won’t last. Should I look into corporate recruitment or continue with agency for a few more years?

Is internal audit worth it? Im 32M married with a baby. Currently an acct advisory manager making 131k base. Recently, ive started to think about leaving as I can’t stand the stress from both work and home. The first opportunity a recruiter found me is an internal audit manager gig. Company is pre-ipo stage, and would like my experience since all I’ve been working on since last yr is ipos and spac merger. If they can match my salary or go up to 140Ks for 40-45 hrs work, should i take it? -> /2
