Question for PC gamers: since i won't be buying a graphics card any time soon, i was wondering if it would even be worth it to upgrade Mobo/chipset. Current specs are: i5 7600k (OC to 4.4ghz, only supports up to 2400 speed ram, 4 cores no hyperthreading), GTX 1070 OC'd, m.2 nvme storage, 32gb 3200 cl 15 ram even though it's not supported). I know these are pretty old parts, but...yeah is it even worth it to spend the money

Have people received inflationary raises? My dad received a letter stating that they’re giving him a 6.5% raise + a one time lump sum of $750 bc of inflation, retroactive to July 1st. He works for a university and is part of a union. Kind of feel like my company is being shady because I work in CRE & we do raises + bonuses in February which was when I was planning to ask for an inflationary raise. But I feel like a lot of companies have done this without having their employees ask?
What do you consider too young or inexperienced to become a team lead/manager? A position opened up and naturally I’m next in line, hiring outside wouldn’t make sense due to the specialized experience and learning curve, however, I was told I would be on the very inexperienced side, which surprised me. Background: I have ~5 years experience and have been performing at an “Excellent” level per each yearly evaluation and casual talks with the several managers and co-workers.

The next day, during a workshop, the speaker brought it up as well. I checked it out and it looks promising and would certainly hook the students. Has anyone tried this?

Can he read in his home language? There’s a HUGE difference between helping students that are already literate in another language acquire English literacy and helping students who don’t have strong literacy skills in any language...
