I posted this in the mom’s group but wanted to cross post here Best swimsuit brand and / or type for bigger bust and round tummy but not quite plus size. Usual size is large or xl. Haven’t lost all the baby weight yet 17 months later.
Just picked up Whiskey Bible's #1 rated whiskey for 2021 (and 2020 World Whisky of the year) - can't wait for the weekend to crack this baby open. Alberta Premium Rye Cask Strength.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Teacher, I need help …. When you see, out of compliance IEPs, students not getting FAPE, treated differently for integration from their peers… who helps you? Union won’t, parents are not even involved with their child so that’s not a help, I emailed all the possible emails for Department of Ed , and all those listed under IDEA/ADA… I don’t know what else to do…
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
Pregnant 🐟. Does firm allows you to take STD (thinking to take a week before due date) plus the parental leave which I heard is 16 weeks? ?
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.
At EY , do you have to be there for a year before you can take the 16 weeks of parental leave or is it an immediate benefit?
When I was 13, I was a very impressionable kid. An older cousin of mine had told me that everything on the news is a lie and that there’s always another story to historical events. This lead me to googling every single event in history with the word ‘truth’ attached to it so I could find out what really happened lol. I thought I was the smartest kid in my middle school because I believed we faked the moon landing, the titanic was a hoax, and that they put fluoride in the water to make us passive
I hope this helps a baby fish.
If you start a career at a new company and are pregnant, do you get maternity leave? I know some companies say you have to work at the company for a year
Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
Doing some benchmarking as we revisit our leave policy. Do any of your firms offer external career coaching for transitioning into / then back from parental leave? Any organizations you’d recommend or things you’ve found to be particularly helpful / successful? Thank you!
Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Any advice of how to get a dog when the rental has a no pet policy? I really could use a fur baby in my life
Anyone have experience with being laid off after coming back from maternity leave? My family member recently did and we have email documentation that it’s related to her maternity leave...

Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.
MBB? More like DPEK

Anyone can give some pointers for what to say for the "Why Stanford" question in the interview? higher marks for those that are weirdly specific :)
What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job. This IA role is for a small credit union and you’ll be the only IA. It’s a new role they came up with this year as different departments would have a a role at different audits. Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.
I filed prevailing wages in June this year under H1b. When would I expect to receive response from DOL?
My B1/B2 visa to the US expires at the end of Feb 2022. If I enter to visit the US in mid Jan 2022 will I get a I94 valid for 6 months or it’s typically upto the visa end date only ? And is there any draw back in staying longer than the visa expiry date but assuming it is within the I94 end date
Is there anyone here from McKinsey or BCG in Montreal willing to chat? Im thinking about applying soon, but I feel like speaking with someone who works there will help me assess if I would love working there (culture, types of projects, etc), and that my interest isnt solely based on prestige/reputation!
Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
What would you do, if anything? A coworker with confirmed COVID19 results (asymptomatic, only lost sense of smell) refuses to wear a mask and continues to go out, even sends her toddler to daycare.
