Moms of fishbowl - what is the best bottle warmer and sterilizer? I’m due in February, planning to do a combination of breast milk and formula (to ensure baby gets all his nutrients one way or another). We bought the baby brezza advanced with WiFi for formula, so more focused on a warmer + sterilizer combo thatll work for breast milk (and specifically thawing breast milk too). Seems there aren’t as many options for combo products with sanitizer, so maybe I’m asking for too much. Suggestions?

A question for recruiters with knowledge of Applicant Track Systems (ATS). Do products like Greenhouse show if an applicant has applied at other companies? I imagine not, as it would be a massive privacy violation if that was the case.

I feel envious of others my age who I came up with at a previous firm getting into great bschools. I’m grinding away, trying to prepare for the GRE, formulating my story and coming into my own in a new role. Why do I always feel like I’m behind?

Work from home has been great for many reasons, but the confession part of this post is how much a loud, disorganized, chaotic environment raises my stress levels. I’ve realized that I can be so much more productive in a quiet home office. But I know some people like the “energy” of a corporate office.

Confession - Haven’t made proper use of my kitchen in 2 weeks. Been on a terrible downward spiral of eating out/eating cereal. Finally broke the pattern (see succulent pieces of baked chicken as evidence). What’s the longest you all have gone without cooking a proper meal? 👀
I think my dad is in a deep depression and I don’t know how to help. I think his general “laziness” stems from that but my family’s anger toward him for not trying to find a job or contribute at all to the household has created resentment against him so it’s a vicious cycle. He doesn’t want to help himself (probably because he is depressed) and that makes people not want to help him. Any suggestions?

Anyone have any recommendations on how to meet someone they really click with? I'm 27 and male. I find on the dating app route I get plenty of dates, but struggle to meet someone I actually click with / could see myself being with long term. Either that or I find out there is some major deal breaker after a few weeks.
Would appreciate any advice fishes have :)

A friend and I went for brunch. Everything was ok but she was quiet for long periods of time in which she seemed kinda checked out. After walking alone together for almost 1 hour during which she said nothing we met up with another couple of my friends. Anyway side from almost totally withdrawing to text other people when we went to a restaurant for dinner she spent 90% of the time texting and reading articles on her phone. The real kicker was when...

Everytime I am on LinkedIn, I see the same 3-4 people posting essays on a particular career track, almost on a daily basis, and the same group of people commenting to hype each other up to increase engagement algorithm.

“You’re saying it wrong,” Harry heard Hermione snap. “It’s Wing-gar-dium Levi-o-sa, make the ‘gar’ nice and long.”
Proper pronunciation is sub-stan-tuh-tay-tive.
Nope, you guys are just lazy.
omg everyone stop.
It’s pronounced im-POR-tant.
If you’re concerned about saying it wrong, you may want to look into how you’re using it too.
Substantive refers directly to a (literal) change in substance. Substantial is the word you use when referencing intangibles (e.g., a substantial change in employee sentiment).
I prefer to use the word material change as opposed to a substantive change
If it makes you feel any better, I frequently find that I use words incorrectly because I never actually look them up just infer the meaning from context when I hear other people say them
