I’m fine with states asking for federal assistance when needed. We’re a union regardless of party. But it really bothers me that Texas banned masks and did everything it possibly could to encourage the spread of disease in order to score political points, yet now expects the feds to come clean up their mess. https://twitter.com/joeycules/status/1476980890991476746?s=21

When we talk about funds raised during college, do bschools have any way to confirm the number? I did several fundraising projects in college but have zero recollection as to how much we raised. I know mentioned those types of stats on apps give you brownie points.
This is more of a cash back card question, not points. I’m looking to BT onto a nee card and considering the Citi Double Cash or the Discover It card. Citi would be best long term for the 2% back, but the Discover card matches all rewards in the first year. Tough choice, thoughts?
When do you tell your ECD that the great idea they’re raving about from a team has been done (in a super bowl spot, so they should know) I feel like it’s bad form to send a link. Do I just wait til someone inevitably points it out?

Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!

Ever since I started working in tax, it's just not been possible to rest. I've taken time off, but my mind has constantly been worried about work and been feeling anxious. I've been feeling drained and just totally fed up. I'm seeing work pile up, but I have little to no motivation to keep doing it. How do people disconnect when they take PTO? What's the point of resting, if you're gonna be immediately tired after coming back. I feel this damages morale so much in the long run.
As an intern, will interviewing with competitors for fulltime affect my shot at a return offer? (if current firm somehow finds out)
When should I start applying to full-time positions if I graduate in December 2022? I currently have an internship this summer in consulting at IBM. And last summer I interned at the Federal Reserve doing compliance and digital transformation. I don't know if I will return to IBM, but I will decide on that based on the experience I have at the internship. However in the mean time I want to explore and see what other opportunities there are. Any advice on when and where to apply for full-time?

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?
