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

Covid sucked but I didn’t let it stop me from living. Met the love of my life and now getting married. Started two bad ass side hustles, got more fit and discovered peace thru Yoga/meditation. Also, quit drinking, two months now. Moral of the story, nothing changes if nothing changes.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼

I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!
