Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
What has covid19 taught you about yourself?
Those of you who have went from having no car to having a car in the city...do you have any regrets? Even before Covid, I’ve often felt so “stuck” without a car, but I‘ve always been too cheap to seriously consider it. (Should mention that I don’t travel much for work, so that might make a difference in answers in the bowl.) Is it life changing!?
So far, no mass exodus in STL… 🤷🏽♀️ https://news.stlpublicradio.org/coronavirus/2021-10-12/as-covid-19-vaccination-deadlines-pass-st-louis-hospitals-say-most-workers-complied
I have an in person hearing scheduled in the cd Cal district court in the coming weeks. Im a nervous wreck mostly because I haven’t been to any court in person since the pandemic and have forgotten all the little things, like the logistics of getting myself to the hearing (where I park, where to go, etc) and now what new Covid protocols to follow. Anyone else experiencing these worries and does anyone have any tips for me?
We need to improve our ability to take care of people in their homes. COVID is a perfect use case, as better to have these folks avoid the hospital
How to handle the dual employment in BGV? I have a friend who have a overlap of 30-40 days from his last organization which is not disclosed in CV and with current organization. I feel UAN check will spoil it but his overlap is cuz he wasn't able to return assets back during COVID. Any suggestions?
Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
I recently developed binge eating disorder over the last few years - with Covid and everything else going on I used food as a coping mechanism. Now things are more back to normal I’m still struggling with it - especially when I have a bad day at work or other stressors. Anyone else struggle with this and how did you overcome it? I’m trying to lose a few pounds for my upcoming wedding and I feel like I keep sabotaging myself. Thanks in advance!
How lenient with clients are firms being re retainers and bills between COVID and holidays? Standard in our fee agreement is (a) required replenishment of trust balance, and (b) hearing/mediation retainers due 45 days prior. We used to be somewhat understanding, but now it’s by the book. And this change was almost overnight.
COVID policy for interns. How are you handling? Paid time off? Case-by-case? Are you sharing a specific policy (yes, I know it differs state-to-state)?
I’ve committed to a life coaching program to make changes that are needed to support me in leveling up personal and professional goals. A fresh start for my post-Covid world. I’m showing up for me.

Anyone who’s been laid off purely due to covid / lack of new biz / etc: what was your severance situation compared to your time and relationship with the agency? What’s standard? Asking for a friend.
I’m turning 30 this Sunday & really feeling bummed out bc of covid & not much to do. My husband shares the birthday weekend with me & my in-laws decide to come over. They’re pretty boring & I end up feeling exhausted afterwards - not sure what to do to make my 30th feel “special”
Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now. A lot of my friends from here are either married, moved out of the area, avoiding going out cuz of COVID, or hermits. 44/M
I'm curious - people who are in relationships. How have things changed between you and your SO during the pandemic?

HR memes are just awesome 😅

Newly promoted managers what’s the salary range around. Please mention the service line too.
I don’t understand why men think this ok? I go to the pool for a swim and see all the lanes are taken so hop in the jacuzzi. Immediately this guy comes over to me starts talking to me tells me I have a fat ass, tries to touch my legs, and asks for my insta. I politely tell him no thank you and I’m only here for a swim and go back to my phone. His friend is in the water with him and comments how he’s married? I see the lanes open up and hop/run out and start swimming. He then follows me (contin)
Looking for a monthly parking pass around the fulton river west area (near the Jewel on Des Plaines). If anyone knows of a place that has availability or aren’t using their pass that I can rent, let me know!
I'm from Baltimore, and lately, we have had a crazy buying spree, I mean I have sold the same property 2 times in less than 2 weeks, and the person who bought it immediately put it on the market and made an average of $25k in less than 5 days. Many reports show that investing in Baltimore and Philadelphia is the future, I don't doubt it. What is the fastest you have ever resold a property?
Anyone looked into pair trading with cryptos?

POLL. Please tell me your political party and whether you would be ok with giving dreamers and/or their parents green cards. If a bill was up for a vote to give dreamers and/or their parents green cards and you were talking to your representative, would you tell them to vote in favor or against? I want to see what people’s stances are on all sides.

Thank you, conservatives, for actively undermining every single effort to contain COVID and then having the utter gall to complain about the case numbers.
Letting everyone roll their own is absolutely not the most effective strategy, and you’ll need to convince me otherwise. Likewise, the strategies we have are working better than if we didn’t have them, and are only less effective than they could be because of the people (maybe including you?) who actively undermine them.
I know we don’t have a parallel universe in which to run a controlled study, but everything we know about science says I’m right and you’re wrong.
Lmao what? Of all the things to blame the administration for, you picked this?
So this is what is headlining Fox News today.
Let me guess, you’re also against mask mandates, vaccine mandates, vaccine passports and think Covid is just the flu?
Unserious take; next
Don’t care about cases. Care about deaths. And deaths are overwhelmingly happening to pro-COVID anti-vaxxers.
They’re making their choice.
Actually, I should amend this: I care about cases to the extent that it’s impacting hospital workers. Those people have suffered so much, and it’s not fair that this continues because of the willful stupidity of others.
But Trump said it was a hoax that would be gone by Easter. Or by the way election. Like a miracle, it would be gone. 😔
But conservatives collective refuse to do the thing that would fix it. Do you see how insane it is to blame him for something you’re actively subverting?
I will blame him for massively overestimating the ability for conservatives to do the right thing.
In hindsight, he should not have said that. He, being a generally decent person, had an innate assumption that people would do the responsible thing of using the new (at the time) nuke in our arsenal against COVID - getting vaccinated. Because of course we would, right?! He is old enough to remember the aggressive and I dare say patriotic campaign against polio, measles, etc. and he assumed that Americans today would act similarly.
Alas, that was his mistake. He did not realize that there are millions of people in the country who literally will choose to die instead of doing what he says, because he’s a Democrat. While I typed this, probably 5-10 people in AR, TX, or MS probably died in pain.
How do we counter this insanity? I am out of ideas.
So let's be productive about this then. Maybe Biden is doing a poor job. Maybe anti-vaxxers are to blame. It doesn't really change where we're at.
OP, what do you think we should be doing differently to reduce COVID infections and hospitalizations?
I actually think omicron changes the game and what was a bit irrational before is now inevitable. Doctors are saying cloth masks do nothing against omicron where they used to help a little.
I still raise my brow that we haven’t asked more questions about China’s role and cover up…
Yup. That’s what she does. I called her irrelevant posts out on another thread and she reported me. If nothing else she’s consistent.
