Thoughts on the NYC vaccine mandate?
Meanwhile in Japan... Osaka Mayor Ichiro Matsui told reporters on Thursday (Apr 23) that men should be entrusted with grocery runs because women "take a long time as they browse around." Lol wut... https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/japan-covid-19-shopping-men-women-groceries-sexist-12672960
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Anyone else just feel too overstimulated by everything going on? Protests, riots, looting, coronavirus, Trump mouthing off, personal problems, job pressures? Cont'd
I got a new job offer for more money. My current team who I love working with made a counter offer, the counter offer isn’t as high as the offer for my new role. If I was only considering my own happiness I’d stay but I’ve started supporting my parents who lost their business due to Covid. They’re immigrants without college degree that apply in the US and have sacrificed a lot for me. Do I stay with the job that makes me happy but doesn’t pay as much or take the new job to help my family?
Trying to convince a brand to do some good in the world. What are some segments of the population that have been disproportionately affected by COVID? The more specific the better
Grocery shopping experience (US): has anyone else experienced that Patel Brothers is a free for all when it comes to COVID? Crowded, many people wearing no masks, no gloves, no social distancing, no hygiene with carts, workers sticking shelves with no masks/gloves in aisles already crowded with people? I went their to shop and was shocked how bad things were. I have been to other Indian stores where COVID business guidelines are being followed very well.
Has anyone seen other (covid round 3) applicants who received large scholarships when on paper it seems they shouldn’t have? I know someone at a M7 who has 2 YOE at a boutique consultancy, 720 GMAT, 3.8~ gpa from a top 70 Ugrad, is a ORM, has weak extracurriculars, and did their entire application in less than a month who not only got in, but received a ~80k scholarship. I can’t think what might have made admissions think they deserved to get in with a large scholarship. Anyone have any ideas?
Anyone in the LA area? How are things over there with COVID? My fiancé and I have our honeymoon planned their for September and one of our Airbnb’s just cancelled /: Should we cancel the whole trip or try to find another place in the area?
Covid vs election
Has anyone started a new job and already left in covid? Would find it funny that you started a new gig and left without even meeting your co workers in person
Share your coronavirus shame meals. I don't have a good one to share, but I found my 8 year old snacking on peanut butter and parmesan cheese earlier. Yes, mixed together.
Um, I feel like my BF of almost 4yrs (1 living together) and I are on the brink of separating. I think COVID is putting it into perspective. We’ve gotten through the worst of the quarantine while supporting each other as best we could (very thankful for him). But his coping skills with stress (during covid) are lacking and as things progressed he’s just been taking it out on me more and more in the moment, then he feels awful for not treating me as well as I deserve (he treated me well before..)

frustrated with my budget. First year out of school, new city, I'm saving but these start up costs feel never ending. Is this adulthood? Or do expenses flatten? feels like there's always something new
