What are our thoughts about physically fighting a belligerent woman as a man?

My personal opinion used to be never put my hands on a woman unless my child or family is in danger or if she had a weapon But now Idk anymore

We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)

WPP Mark Read £2,594,000 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 1.88% reduction. Publicis Arthur Sadoun €3,265,800 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 4.6% reduction.

Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
“Dropping sick beats they call me DJ Nanna” makes me laugh every time I see that commercial
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
Looking for good behavioral and case interview prep resources. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome. Thank you!

What happens in the year you make over the salary limit for Roth IRAs? I am under the limit this year and plan to max out my contribution. Next year, I’m expecting to earn over the limit. Am I able to invest next year before I earn 140k? Not sure how this works
Got an offer from a big firm. I’m currently working at a small firm. The pay increase would be about 20% not including bonus. My concern with big law is obviously the stress level and billable hours but the small firm life concerns me long term because there’s only currently 6 lawyers and we just lost an office.
Company rushed me through interviews, asking that I do First, second and third rounds in 7 days. Then they go radio silent and take their time coming back with an offer... poor reason to turn it down?
