Hi Friends,

Have 3 offers, TCS, PWC AC Bangalore and Societe Generali.

TCS - package on lesser side.

PWC AC and Societe Generali have provided equal pay package, Societe is higher in terms of pay.

YOE - 13
Skills - Program Management - Digital

Which will be good for long term, wlb, and work per say.

Kindly advise

Indiana is the dumbest state in the union. We started with healthcare workers, first responders (agree these were a must), and oldest age brackets first. It’s going to be March next week and we are still paused from opening it up to 60-65 age group, half a million people. Based on survey results, that group is the least likely to get vaccinated in this state. I’ve got to wait until probably July for 62 YO Karen who thinks Trump is Jesus, and the vaccine is for leftist control. SMDH.

1992: Ukraine holds about one third of the Soviet nuclear arsenal, the third largest in the world at the time, as well as significant means of its design and production.

1994: Ukraine agrees to dissolve the entire nuclear arsenal in exchange for “safety guarantees” from Russia, USA and the UK, becoming only nation in the history to willingly give up nukes.

2022: They are fucked and nobody wants to intervene with troops because “Russia has nukes”

Fossil fuels is a finite resource. Once we (US) deplete our reserves (of which we have substantially less than Saudi, Russia, etc.) then we will be exclusively dependent on importing our oil and gas needs. I’m amazed at the short-sidedness of some takes in this bowl. We’re kicking the can down the road on this issue. How different would this conflict be if we had depleted our reserves??? That day will come.
