One more reason why you should always have a broker and not rely on Redfin or Zillow. You pay the money one way or other.

Who cares find a good broker and you don’t have to worry. The good lines won’t be stuffing you with points as they know it’s a competitive market and you have other options

When drafting a brief or other submissions for court or arbitration, do you use words such as clearly, erroneously, etc. to emphasize certain points? Our managing partner says that we should, but all of the writing guides for litigators that I've read repeats the mantra "show, don't tell" and explain that most judges dread such words. I know that the politically correct thing to do here is to do whatever the managing partner wants me to do, but I just wanted to ask for other ppl's opinion.

I’ll be honest, I am mainly on the bowl for the political discussions because I fear being fired if I were to post publicly. Not that I’m posting crazy things but rather that basic conservative views seem to be so controversial these days. Am I alone on that? Shout out to those on the left who engage in good faith discussions as well cuz those are very much needed between left and right.

I am planning to move to Canada and have to give ielts.. 1) did you all give your ielts that is general training or the academic one. I know general training will suffice but checking if there are more points for academic one. E.g. same band/score in academic and GT but get more points in PR application if it's academic.
