What’s the best single watch winder? COVID makes it tough wearing my watch all day... not looking for luxury, just something quality and a good value.
Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now. A lot of my friends from here are either married, moved out of the area, avoiding going out cuz of COVID, or hermits. 44/M
During Covid I lived with my parents a few months after living alone for 5 years (distance 3h by plane). I realized that not only I love living alone, I dont see myself at all marrying or having kids. I like to do to my things the way I like, to eat when/what I want to etc. That's it! I know I might turn to be a older and lonely man, but that's how I see my future.
For a medical exemption from the covid vaccine is a medical note required if you are pregnant? Please don't lecture me about how I should get it when you know nothing of my situation.
Mandating the vaccine and or an increase in insurance for unvaccinated. Thoughts? https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2021/08/25/expect-to-pay-full-deductible-if-youre-hospitalized-with-covid/ https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/03/business/vaccine-mandate-employees-microsoft.amp.html
Is it possible Fauci is lying to us about needing a “cure” when he already acknowledged we had one for SARS / novel coronavirus back in 2005? HCQ + Azithromycin + zinc function as both a cure and a vaccine. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1232869/ https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2020/04/27/fauci-knew-about-hcq-in-2005-nobody-needed-to-die
I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!
Just got a verbal offer but company asked if my start date can be pushed out to late summer due to Covid. How many of you are in this same boat?

How do you deal with family in India believing and spreading every false rumor/forwarded message on WhatsApp? I stopped correcting them a few years ago when I realized it was bad for my relationship with them, but the forwards nowadays especially related to Covid is outright dangerous (and obviously false when read by an educated person). Very worried about this
I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly
How do coronavirus symptoms start? My mom is having trouble breathing today and we're don't want to assume that's what is it? Not sure if we should go to the emergency room or wait it out.

In my town, we have been getting daily email notifications from the school district informing the parents of new Covid cases, usually it’s 1-3 new cases per email/day, the last email earlier this evening, 22 people (students, faculty, and district employees) tested positive!! Infection is spiking bc of the holidays. I am so glad we made the decision of keeping our kids home for virtual classes instead. How is the situation in your town?

Guys I need your inputs. I have 11 years of experience and currently working as azure data engineer. Current ctc is 12. Ey gds offering 23.5 fixed as senior 3 rank 42. Should I not get manager position with higher fixed package?
For my 401k I have a section that shows Roth contributions and earnings. I have a different section that is labeled “nontaxable balances” and just shows Roth contributions. The Roth contributions number is smaller than the Roth contributions and earnings (which is expected since my contributions have grown). But why aren’t my Roth contributions AND earnings showing in the nontaxable balances section?

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
Are you supposed to get a receipt notice after you send your medical RFE response for GC AOS?
Remote work opportunities? I'm looking for firms to look into. Currently in health. I think this will be disruptive (given we can't be on site... and my firm isn't used to delivering remotely).
Mid-level litigator. I have accepted an offer for a top litigation shop but I am still waiting on conflicts. I have started preparations to move to the new city but no contracts yet. A top corporate shop that I applied to several months ago reached out for an interview. The firm is in a different city than the offer I’ve accepted, but long term I really want to be in the corporate firm’s city. Ultimately I want to go in-house. Take the interview right? Cont.
Anyone else (who is NOT in big consulting/tech/banking), run the numbers of when they'll be out of MBA debt and realize it was not worth it? If you had an income of 120k, it would be quite difficult to save for a house/retirement/etc while paying down debt for 10 years.
This has been on my mind for a few weeks, and I have to get it off my chest: Via slack, did you PING him? Or did you PANG him? Heard someone say PANG one time and now I’m lost…
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
Looking for an office chair and am pretty settled on getting the remastered Aeron. Anyone know how to get a new one at a discount? Note: Buying used voids the 12-year warranty.

I’ve been a nurse for 10 years in Boston. I have a few years of sales that involved a lot of travel. Looking to step away from bedside nursing and get back into sales. I’m also a bit discouraged with my earnings and the wife wants to go down in hours to spend more time with the kids. So far I’ve applied to a few Novartis jobs and the interview process has started. Any other companies that you would suggest? I figure leveraging my medical knowledge would be best but I’m open. Thanks guys
Does anyone have any creative suggestions for providing role clarity within teams. We work diligently to maintain job descriptions and communicate team changes broadly, but our employees are still craving some sort of additional reference point of how positions interact with one another. We have Sharepoint and we’re thinking of putting more job info there next to peoples names and titles. Look forward to suggestions!
Don't think I did as well on Kellogg interview as I hoped 😞 it's my top choice by far so feeling a bit disappointed
