Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/
Do any of your district NOT have a mask mandate?
I got an appointment for my first dose of the covid vaccine this Saturday! Might be the only time in my whole life I’ve benefited from being fat!!
Does post-Covid smell training really help to restore sense of smell faster? I was impacted by Covid around Christmas and still can’t smell much. Thinking about getting this, would it help? Scentful Smell Training Kit, Smell Loss Therapy, Regain Sense of Smell, 4 Organic Essential Oils, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09NF4RFNG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_BD7S82M78XRTD5RD8J2G
Yesterday, 6 American service members were killed in a helicopter crash during a peacekeeping mission in Egypt. Tropical Storm Eta made landfall in Florida. The number of Americans infected with COVID continued at a record-setting pace. Trump has remained silent.
Pfizer's Comirnarty coronavirus has been approved! Ok but seriously wouldn't you rather wait for Moderna's Spikevax? It sounds way cooler and who wants something called Comirnarty in their body. It sounds like Pfizer consulted with Medieval Times on the naming. -s
Interesting visualization of pandemic counter measures and effects for the Spanish Flu https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/2020/03/how-cities-flattened-curve-1918-spanish-flu-pandemic-coronavirus/#close
Finally got my first dose of the COVID vaccine. I find it sad I haven’t been this excited about anything in a long time.
Anybody here who recently travelled to the US from India? Did your covid report consist of type of test conducted?
I find many self staying muted on all my meetings, not offering to present my slides, doing what I’m told without taking much initiative. I’m so tired and lost all motivation after a tough COVID year on top of some long hours. Am I burnt out?
For those who get gel manicures, how often do you get them redone and how much do they cost? I went the other day first time after COVID and it was $50CAD which is the most expensive I’ve ever paid.
What is beyond frustrating about this article, is that regardless of Biden or Trump, the outcome would have most likely been the same. We have a bunch of wealth and lobbying power tied to the military industrial complex, that these huge contractors always, always, get behind the curtain white glove treatment. Lockheed, Rolls Royce, etc. still exist only because of bloated government military projects. We would kill 10 million of our own before we let these contractors sink. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/09/22/covid-funds-pentagon/
How many days did you start showing symptoms after you got exposed to someone with COVID?
I’ve never understood the “COVID was cooked up cause this is an election year” argument. I am a conservative but people who think the left cooked this up for an election are way off. I’d say this lockdown is only benefiting Trump because Biden is quiet as a church mouse and people most likely trust Trump to bring the economy back.
A brief interruption from regularly scheduled ad / Covid related posts: can straight, single people of the opposite sex (or same sex if gay) be just friends after the age of 30 or so or is it just a precursor to getting together? I realize this is the premise of When Harry Met Sally but still going w/ this confession / question.
Anyone know the President’s coronavirus plan? I know he wants to expedite a vaccine but besides that, are there actionable steps he’s taking to end this?
I turn 29 next Thursday and in need of restaurant suggestions for a group of 7-8 people. What are some good restaurants (still opened in this COVID world that would be a good option?
Do any of your companies offer Fitness programs to keep fit and healthy that all employees have access to? This would be a standalone program from the benefit carriers programs. I am worried if states shut down access to gyms soon due to COVID rates increasing, our employees will be left without a way to keep active. Maybe offering employees an allotment of $ toward in-home gym equipment or online classes? Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
NYC Area — anyone know of any virtual volunteer opportunities relevant to education and/or mentoring? Although things are at a standstill, I’d still like to network and learn of ways to invest my extra time. I’m also open to opportunities that will continue post COVID. I’ve checked out Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC, and other large organizations, but I know there have to be more out there...
Getting this off my chest!

Does anyone actually prefer a 2 wheel roller to the 4 wheel spinner? I don't get it but I still see consultants with 2 wheelers. I find it so much easier to walk the 4 wheeler alongside me.
