This is me today. Husband is essential worker with insane amount of work pressure through covid and a manager who is an incompetent idiot delegating to workers going in to work while he sits home protecting himself and verbally abusing the team. I want to be supportive of my husband but I am drowning and I know he is too with a toddler at home!!!

Hi! I’m not sure if this is the right question but I’d like to be fitter. I’m 230lb and 5’8 so it’s really bad. Because of covid I haven’t gone to the gym, I have 2 weights at home. Any recommendations on workouts from home? Running or jogging hurts like hell so I’ve been trying to walk at least 5 miles per day, some push-ups and sit-ups. I have watched a few videos online as well. Thank you guys

The split will be an amicable one, and I have no reason to think they would fire me on the spot (big "culture" emphasis here), although of course that's a concern.

All - i need some advice. I am a 27M and there have been talks with my parents that they are going to ‘set me up’ with someone soon.

I have a few female friends who talk about how much they got to know their BFs before the knot. People who have gone through this, am I seeing things the wrong way?

Getting sick of selling the market, watching it go my way, and then roaring back. So, I went back to revisit the daily. Could we be trading an extension long? Is that the reason why this market is going up? In Mid-June, we sold off to 2394 in ES. We can back for a 2nd test in early July but, rallied and we have rallied ever since. 3375 is the objective, 125 points away, and right at old highs. Do we have to goto old highs before a sell off? Maybe? Buy the 21 (yellow) and 51
