Anyone seriously considering a permanent remote work situation and move out of Chicago after Covid? How do you go about it with your Manager/company? Do you keep your Chicago salary or is a move put things in question?
Switzerland question: if im an American driving into the country from Italy, does that mean I'm entering "from Italy?" Already have the covid certificate fwiw
Reached a COVID milestone today, first time meeting with teams from my bathtub. Still here if anyone has any questions. 🙏🏿
Started a new job. Today. In the midst of the coronavirus. Was working at a startup with no sizable income and is on halt now. I feel extremely lucky. Good luck to all, not all hope is lost!
Hi all! Anyone here a single dog mom/dad? I’m adopting during covid but concerned about dog parenting when work life is “normal” again. Any advice or outlook?
I love New York, I’m just having trouble making sense financially of doing it. I could make what I make here while living in Florida…. Given Covid.
Anyone isn’t big fun of year end gatherings? I live close with elder parents, concerned about COVID spike. But feeling obligated to attend …..wondering if I’m the only one.
Taking BEC on Monday, my last section, and if I don’t pass, I can’t retake prior to my 1st exam expiring. (Thanks Coronavirus). Any advice on the written portion? It’s the one thing I cannot find any confidence with and feel super unprepared. I read Becker prompts and my mind literally blanks on everything.
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
When are we going to acknowledge that this is no longer a pandemic of the unvaccinated? Vaccinated/boosted people are commonly getting and spreading covid and transmitting variants. You should get vaxxed. It will protect you from severe illness and death. But it’s not preventing transmission, spread, or variants. So let’s stop treating unvaccinated people like pariahs.
COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
Have your employers made you return your covid monitors/desks if you’ve gotten a new job? How have they collected?
How comfortable is everyone (due to covid and bird flu) to go outside? Any weekend suggestions (must try sought off!)
So he tested positive days before the debate. Then miraculously tested negative. Then days after, he tested positive again and ended up in the hospital. After the fact, in his town hall with Savannah Guthrie, he said he never tested positive until *after* the debate. I’m sure it was all totally above board… and naturally, Trump says Meadow’s claim is fake news. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book
He is doing something about covid. He's waiting for it to disappear. One day he will be right

I dont know about you guys, but the Naya Rivera news hit me hard.. and I didnt even know who she was. Dont ever take your life for granted, we arent promised tomorrow 🙌🏽 Makes you also think how we can get desensitised to hearing the # of DAILY deaths due to covid.. Remember that they too were fighting for their lives and have left behind devastated loved ones.

Best place to stay in Singapore? “Bonvoy” lifetime status so prefer those. I like to swim and the Westin and St. Regis have pools but could pass those up if the Ritz, JW, or others are worth it
Anybody switched from plaintiff to defense later in their career? If so, which did you prefer? Also, I’ve done plaintiff work my entire career - outside of billable hours, in your experience what are some frustrations/challenges that are unique to the defense side? I’m a 10 year attorney looking at some defense jobs right now and they seem a lot more stable with more upward mobility than anything I’ve experienced at a plaintiff firm. Thanks in advance for any comments offered.

PSA: if you’re having holiday parties this season, consider hosting a canned food drive for your local food shelter. It’s easy - just search & register on your city’s food bank website and they provide all the bins & instructions. You can ask each guest to bring 1 non perishable food item. Attached is an example for Houston

My wife is on L2 visa, waiting for USCIS to change the I 94 so she can work. In the meantime, can she start a job with a company in India, travel to US on L2, and continue to work remotely? She will start her US job as soon as her I94 change comes through or EAD is approved. What if any are the legal ramifications of working for a foreign company while on L2?
