My friend gave birth 1.5 months early. She kept it on the dl due to some finds in the ultrasound. It’s her first child and he’s in the NICU (developmental issue). I want to send her something but am at a total loss. For any moms here, any ideas? Don’t know if she didn’t disclose earlier because the child’s survival odds are rare (his issue is very rare and there’s not a lot of medical literature on it). TIA

Junior partner at large insurance defense firm openly stands in middle of department and says we should be billing 10 hours for every 7 hours of actual work we do. Over billing is an open secret in insurance defense but i never imagined anyone would be so brazenly open about it.

Hi all! I currently live in LA but my wedding next year will be in my hometown of Chicago. I plan to go wedding dress shopping soon in both LA and Chicago. If I find my dream wedding dress in Chicago, I’d like to order it to be shipped to a store in LA so that I can have my fittings throughout the year without having to travel back to Chicago. However this also means I would have to fly to Chicago with my wedding dress. Has anyone been in this situation before? If so, how was the experience?
Interesting to see the Big 4 move up the consulting value chain to offer more strategy like work for lower prices and MBB move down the value chain to offer implementation work at higher prices
