Trump haters and supporters, is there anything Trump could do to change your mind either way? Anything so vile you'd vote Biden? Anything so praiseworthy you'd vote Trump?
How can anyone still think we’re overreacting to the coronavirus at this point? If you hold this belief, why?
Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!
Covid Vaccine Booster?
Has anyone gotten the booster yet? (Moderna and J&J just got approved in our state) I got Moderna six months ago and wondering where everyone’s head is at?
Moving to Manhattan (from Canada) in a couple of months. Hoping to get a one bed or studio in midtown. Considering that rent may potentially drop due to covid19, what range $ should I be considering?
Let’s pray for a miracle. This trump guy and his crooks should be educated about the laws around cutting corners and fine for causing emotional distress. This H1B overhaul execution is a political stunt, giving current COVID economic impact and ongoing elections. https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/trump-administration-overhaul-of-h-1b-visa-program-challenged-in-court-11602892079
I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.
Is moving to the East Village or LES worth it now with COVID? My partner and I are introverts and don’t mind the lack of night life. Our appeal to the area is being surrounded by young people, the availability of nice restaurants for take out or dine outdoors, nice parks and crossing off our bucket list to live in the city. We also don’t mind if the neighborhood will be a little quiet, but I’ve heard there’s more homeless people, shady people roaming around outside now? Appreciate any insight!
Heard this question posed before, but what impact do you think COVID has had on social security? As part of a younger generation, we have been told not to expect nearly what we have paid into it. With the majority of victims being elderly, will this cause any shift in SS?
Could anyone from Bain’s London office provide any insight into how much travel was typically involved (Pre-COVID)?
Also, how do you see the split of WFH/office/client site be going forward?
Do you think boutique consulting firms that focus on local markets are doing better or changing their business model because of covid since their reach can extend outside of local market? Do you think they will allow their consultants to stay remote or travel once COVID travel bans ease up?
Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
Besides coronavirus related reaction posts, is anyone actually working on other projects or things?
I’ve been feeling nauseous lately and i can’t tell if it’s because I’m hungover, have food poisoning, or if it’s covid 😬😬😬
Broke up with my fiance the week before Covid hit (not knowing all this would happen). Now I wonder what life would have been like if we hadn't broken up then. Maybe we could have worked things out? I will never know.
Let’s be real here the easy thing about the first lady having COVID was quarantining from Donnie. She been trying quarantine from him.
Hi. I am moving across the country from Atlanta to Seattle once the COVID is done. Any suggestions for movers and packers ? I have stuff nearing 2 bedroom apartment.
Can you catch omicron simultaneously or right after delta? I had a second reinfection with what I assume was delta at the end of November as I was out with pneumonia. I’m two weeks recovered but just came down with a fever and my normal beginning of covid symptoms. Is it possible I’m infected a third time? (I’m double vaccinated)
Entering my 3rd year as a SA. Didn't make manager this past cycle due to fewer numbers with covid. Got an offer from a smaller boutique firm for a manager position. The only problem is the comp is the same amount as my current and I wasn't able to get them to go up. Any advice? Stay at KPMG and try again for manager next year or take the manager title, even with the same salary
Anyone who has got the best rate for 30 year fixed, no pmi and lower closing costs? Bank / credit union / lender name please. Thank you
I need some advice:
I recently started a position as a senior writer. I jumped from a copywriter role with this new position. It has not been a smooth onboarding at all. My manager moved off my brand before I could even start working. I was doing a bunch of sitting around for the good part of 2 months! Now since there’s a budget issue they want me to take the spot of the freelancer that was the lead writer with only one real week working under this freelancer. Weird to anyone at all?
Is it really that hard to say please and thank you instead of barking orders at me like a dog?
I know we are busy, I know this is my job, but dang, it is a lot more pleasant to work for the midlevels and seniors who say please and thank you and show a tiny amount of respect and appreciation.
I actively avoid working for midlevels and seniors who just bark at me, never ask, and never say thank you because it just shows they don’t care about being a half decent human.
