His son’s school was going virtual... may be a contributing factor.

He only changed his stance because it affected his child.

He said to reopen unless in a hot spot, then use judgment and safety protocol in your area as suggested by your state governor and health department. Here in Ohio some schools are starting online because of the cases of covid and some are starting as usual. My school has an all in with provisions for closure or all online. It depends on the city/county you live in. I watched the press conference, then I received an email from my school about opening options. Hope that helps.

I read the article but it doesn't mention a pivot on his position about reopening schools. what did he say about it?

I didn’t say he completely changed his position. I said the position is shifting...it’s a crack in his position...will his supporters shift? That’s the big question.

Anyone have menstrual complications after their covid vaccine so bad they ended up calling their doctors? What did they do for you? I have had my period for 6 weeks straight after the covid vaccine. I worked with my doctor for YEARS to get my cycle and body where it needed to be (endometriosis) and have been on a pill so things were finally consistent and going great until the shot. I am miserable, scared and in pain. Just need to know I’m not the only one and things will get better.

How frequently should one expect or advocate for a raise at a small firm? I moved to a new firm (about ten lawyers) about two and a half years ago. After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.

Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen.

I secured a 2-year lease on my luxury studio during covid but am looking to transfer it to someone new around the 1-year mark (moving in with SO). Would it be reasonable to ask the new tenant to split the penalty with me (we each pay $2400) since they get to keep the low rent rate that I secured? The studio is back at market price now (~$1200 more than my current rent).

Anyone ever dealt with switching from rent controlled to rent stabilized before?

Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.
