Wow, That’s pretty crazy. That would require quite a bit of time and drive the SOW price up. Or require the team to work really long hours to complete the deliverables.

How much from scratch? I’m assuming this is a tech company... so, do they build their own microprocessors or create their own languages. Prolly not. Everybody reuses something / stands on the shoulders of giants.

It’s a tech company, actually one of the FAANG

They just want to ‘feel’ different, unique, exclusive, etc. It’s always the same shiz packaged in a different wrapper. Bring your background and insight to the table. Ever been to a blind wine tasting where snobs back peddle after complimenting Bear Foot? Slip in a proven solution and see how they react. There is a theory that each human will max out at 3 completely unique/new thoughts in their entire life, and this is only trending downward in time... It is not the Wheel. It is how you spin it.

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.) We have committed to an A/B model with groups attending MT and Th/F in person, working remotely the other three days. If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.

This is going to sound nuts. But, based on the close, here is the tip. LESSON: Check out where we closed on Friday and where we closed today. Same spot. Tip: Markets don't like to create a significant low or high on a Friday afternoons or Mondays. Very often they will trade their previous setup on Tuesday . . . Meaning, this sustained bullish trend can take us up to 3111.25 on a HWB Short or 3139.50 61.8% without blinking an eye. It's like the dip into lows never existed.

Why exactly is it so hard for people to understand that ESL and Special Education teachers are in fact that: teachers? I'm bilingual so I constantly get called in to translate for parents in the office as well because it's so hard to get a hold of the district interpreter. Today I was teaching a lesson that took us on a scavenger hunt around the building and the nurse stopped me. "Oh! This is why I couldn't get a hold of you, you're playing!" What? I tilted my head and replied, "I'm TEACHING."

There's a $200 golf networking event at some country club.

Plus I think I might have to buy special golf clothes. I'd be going for the golf lessons starting at 2PM and it includes a cocktail reception and dinner. The companies sponsoring seem meh.

18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
