Is it that hard to get our make-up together for tv? What in the angry eyebrows is going on here…
Weird idea. Is there a way we could set up like a virtual work room? Like one where we're logged onto something like skype/messenger/Google meet/zoom/ZooRoom/Discord or something where we can all be working at night time, but at least not alone. It would mostly be silent, but misery loves company? I legit hate working alone for the whole day and then into the evening too.

I love all these news outlets pumping out articles talking about the recent 'crash' in cryptocurrencies. A few months ago the news was 'will Bitcoin break 3k?'. Now it is 'crashing' to $3500 lmao. Hodl long term people
Since the beginning of the year I've already gotten 4 referrals. 2 have become clients, and another is a high possibility. This is an abnormally high number of referrals for me. Hoping it continues!
I have started my first job as a software developer and I really enjoy it.
Question is… Is it worth doing Masters degree in computer science? (Part-time)
Would it make a difference in salary/knowledge?
Just wondering if it is worth investing my time into it.
I hear a lot of negative things about Guidehouse on here, but I received an offer that’s a 20% increase from BAH. I’m making mid 70’s at BAH in the health market with 4 yoe in DC area. I wanted to know about GH’s Oracle practice and how it is (which is what the offer is for). I was planning on leaving BAH anyways due to low pay/admin team issues.
I’m stuck in a position where I feel like I have no unique skills and am therefore an M level generalist making it difficult to leave. Does anyone have any suggestions on what skills I should develop to get out this rut?
I have joined Wipro on 4th May and today i have recieved an email from Matrix company on behalf of Wipro for background verification. They are asking for the relieving letter and form 16 but I have not received it yet from Accenture. Can I tell that company that i will get the relieving letter within 22 to 45 days?
Will it cause any issues? Does anyone else has faced such issue in Wipro post joining ?
Please pour some information.
This brings me comfort

I need help making up my mind on where to attend.
So I have two offers on the table : Tuck vs Yale SOM. I am getting 40k scholarship from Tuck and nothing from Yale.
I'm planning on going into consulting afterwards and am not sure what school to attend. I know Tuck's group oriented teaching is slightly more geared towards consulting.
What has been making me hesitate is the global presence of what Yale has in its name.
Would you say Yale has almost equal chance of getting into MBB as Tuck?

Would be shocked if it’s full remote. Either hybrid or in person
“Hybrid” is pretty much online. If all social events, clubs, recruiting, etc. are virtual, who really cares if you get to go to a few classes in person?
I do, meeting people in person makes a big difference and I’m sick of sitting behind a webcam all day.
80% chance it’s more or less in person
20% chance not
I think the US will be basically fully-vaccinated by then, and variants don’t seem to be causing enough trouble to keep restrictions around, unless you get into the worst instincts of some of the more hysterical experts (e.g., Tom Frieden, Devi Sridhar, most of the UK govt advisors)
I know there’s evidence that the variants with the E484K mutation (e.g., South Africa variant) will be partially vaccine-escape, but so far the non-AZ vaccines are holding up really well in preventing severe disease. Most like the viruses stays around forever and it’s widely circulating but basically harmless in the US by autumn.
The 20% tail risk is from mutations being a bigger issue or ‘the experts’ giving into their most hysterical instincts and keeping restrictions for no good reason (more likely in California than the rest of the country).
Also, this is a US-only view. We’re lucky to have an excellent vaccine rollout and not to be relying on the AstraZeneca vaccine.
OP, thanks. :) I spend basically all my time reading about Covid so I like to share what I know. It’s a far more interesting subject than anything I’ve encountered at work, ever.
Our guess is as good as yours dude
Hybrid most likely
It’s not as black and white as in person vs remote vs online. Restrictions on social life are always changing (eg. 50 person outdoor gatherings, 10 person indoor gatherings). Unless some variant fucks us fall 2021 should be miles better than now. Probably still no intl travel or massive parties but you’ll at least be able to network and socialize with your peers
They might be and I hope you’re right. Only time will tell I guess
I don't think schools would back-track from where they are now. Even Wharton is hybrid right now.
Been following the vaccine rollout very closely with this question in mind. Given it's possibly going to take until EOY to vaccinate 75% of the population, I can see schools taking a conservative approach and keeping a hybrid model for the fall. BUT I think the vaccine should be accessible enough to anyone who wants it by this fall, so it should still be safe to socialize with classmates in person assuming we're all vaccinated.
Agree that international travel is probably going to take longer to come back, but I think it'll likely come back in doses. I can see the UK being ok to travel to by EOY (assuming they iron out the kinks with the AZ vaccine) and Greece is planning to reopen to vaccinated tourists this summer. Can see other EU countries following suit. APAC and LATAM will likely take longer imo.
The 75% threshold is weird because it’s a sort of herd immunity guideline, but I don’t think we’re going to get enough transmission blocking to think in terms of true R<1 forever herd immunity. Much more likely is an endemic virus.
So then what? We want to protect people from severe disease. What percent? Well, probably every adult who wants it. 75% is probably reasonable. I’ll be angry if we keep society locked down for people who voluntarily don’t get vaccinated.
But 75% of adults should come faster than 75% of the whole population, because kids are a whole other issue. 12-16 yo studies are going to happen, and a vaccine for them may or may not be approved. U12 vaccine will probably not be approved. So then what? Under all these scenarios I think we basically need to be prepared for every child to get Covid, which should be fine given its sub-flu IFR at that age, except we’ll probably hear hysteria about long Covid. But what else do we do? Even giving finite vaccines to 12-16 year olds in the US seems like a dreadful use of resources when they could go to, I don’t know, nurses or 90-year-olds in Peru or something.
All this to say, an arbitrary number like 75% gets into weird territory and isn’t that meaningful as we talk endemicity rather than herd immunity. The reality I honestly think is that hospitalization and death metrics will carry the day.
Skeptic on how long its going to take the general public - I do not think the general US public will be back to socializing as normal in the fall. But I DO think top tier MBA programs are going to do whatever they can to try to secure vaccines for their students. So perhaps your class would be vaccinated through student health.
Will schools require proof that a student has taken the vaccine? I’m guessing yes.
