How does one gracefully renege in an offer that they have already signed? (Had an offer in place for an October job but they pushed it all the way back to February because of COVID)
Do any of you have earthquake insurance as part of renters insurance? It increases the cost of renters insurance by like 30%, so it is hard to tell if it is a gouge or if there is a bigger risk than I appreciate. I am new to the area and have never experienced an earthquake, but I doubt another 1906 is likely in the next few years.
Questions for FDD folks:
1. What are the most common adjustments that you identify?
2. What are the technical areas of accounting you use most?
3. Specifically for health care/life sciences, what accounting areas do you look into most extensively?
Sharing a story.
For Asian American heritage month in March at my company they put on a jeopardy game. Several questions on coronavirus history and one on arranged marriages. 🤦🏻♀️
Trump: https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/20-times-trump-said-the-coronavirus-would-go-away/2020/04/30/d2593312-9593-4ec2-aff7-72c1438fca0e_video.html Also Trump: "It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better. Something I don't like saying about things but that's the way it is. That's what we have."
I’d like input!
I am currently a charge nurse and am in a “Pathway to Leadership Program” that will come with promotions into leadership/administration. I am concerned that going through the leadership ladder will lead to a lot of politics.
I am thinking of getting a masters of healthcare informatics, and would love input from people in both industries and any advice you have!
Would you continue into the nursing leadership ladder or go into health informatics (which also has leadership!)?
Looks like the coronavirus crisis is officially over. America is back to "normal" with racism, police violence, entitlement, psycho-Karens and rioting. Almost forgot what non-COVID life was like.
How to broach taking time during the day for Ramadan for myself as a junior consultant - on a COVID related engagement so I’m reluctant if it’ll be received well...
Also how much time is okay to ask for?
Finally cut off someone I thought was a friend. We dated for 2 years and cohabitated (2017-2019). He dumped me twice, slept with someone else the first time. After the second time, he eventually dated a woman who terrorized me just because that was her nature. Each event was pushing me back into a pit where I stayed in bed daily and didn't understand the point of being around. I eventually got a little better, focusing on my mental health, and then he came back around... (cont...)
Would you fly to go on a shoot in LA right now if it’s good for the career but makes you uncomfortable from a health standpoint?
My understanding is that it’s possible to contract Covid but be asymptomatic. If one contracts it, is asymptomatic, and self-quarantines for two weeks, is the virus then (in theory) no longer transmissible? (Don’t flame me, this is just a curiosity question)
I’m traveling to Maine from Georgia in a couple of weeks and will be flying into Boston and renting a car. I am reading about Mass. Covid travel rules and I am wondering if I would qualify as a transitory traveler since I’m just passing through. The website only talks about people that are driving through so I was wondering if anyone has done something similar recently. Also, if anyone has flown into BOS recently, how did they check to see if you exempt from the Covid rules?
Thoughts on moving during quarantine and corona virus times? Our lease is up at the end of June, we can probably resign but I’m not even living there right now as I went home.
Work mostly in retirement distribution with both insurance and aum. Looking for planning software and client facing software suggestions please. What do you all love to use?
What are some tips to tell someone (a close friend) that you don’t feel comfortable visiting them in COVID? Had plans to go to Nashville for a while, but hearing stories about indoor bars / no masks, etc. and would rather wait. Friend tends to get very slighted easily, but she’s a long-time friend.
Finally admitted to myself that I can't take care of both my mental health and do any form of productive work anymore and just left the job... time for a solo trip back to home country...life happens
Any thoughts on term life vs whole life insurance? I’m in my late 30s, have good savings in 401k, personal IRA and brokerage, 529 plans for two kids, 50 % of mortgage paid. I want coverage for family
Curious how everyone is doing with their coworkers these days amidst the current political climate. I know our field tends to lean conservative so just curious how you're dealing.
Looking back, anything you wish you did differently before trying for number *two*? Have a 2.5 year old and getting ready to try again.
Any recommendations for Galveston, TX? Places to eat, places to stay?
Might do a causal anniversary celebration down there in a month or so.
...Because this looks sustainable. 🤔 -BC
Come be my Senior Art Director partner in Amsterdam. Gotta have some digital/activation experience. Can't sponsor your visa unless you're like really good and I can tell my boss we'll die without you. DM me your book.
Really looking forward to my upcoming vacation time and the moment I get a message saying if I could reschedule my time off because “everything is hot right now”.
As most of us are rounding out the first quarter, how do you think it went- better or worse than expected?
From election fraud to four seasons landscaping to dripping hair paint to THIS. Republicans need new role models.
Is it annoying to message creative directors on linked in if there’s an open role on their creative team? Is there a right way to do it? An agency I’m dying to work for has an open role and I don’t want to get lost in the sea of applications.
Sweet summer child
Leaving firm for another big law position. Is it typical to provide information about the new job when resigning? I always hear advice about how one should not divulge this information, but it seems like it’s formalizing relationships, especially when I’m hoping to leave on good terms.

Starting a new job with a Big Law in June but very worried that they may not confirm me given the economic downturn & virus ...
Paul Hastings people in DC - do associates have windows in the new office? I know NY associates all have interior offices.
Telling any person the color of their skin makes them more/less capable or successful or bigoted or “topic x” is racist in itself.
Schools telling us lessons will include a requirement for accepting that skin color requires student to admit / to atone / give up things to others is racist. Don’t say schools aren’t teaching this — because they are across the USA.
Businesses requiring people to atone or admit in group that their skin color = racism is itself racism.
It’s time to stop!!
