Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
Anyone else struggling with post-COVID fatigue and problems concentrating? My doctors mainly said to wait and take it easy. Anything else that worked for you guys?
I have one foot out the door in my current role (was unhappy pre-Covid, has become worse during Covid)...and I am having a challenging time in my personal life currently, Both of these things combined I feel are effecting my feedback style. I am a little shorter, easily frustrated & unmotivated. I worry I am making it harder for my creative team who I care about a lot. Im not sure how to address it, as it feels fairly personal. Has anyone been in a similar scenario & did you get past it?
Gained the COVID -19 (really only 10 pounds) but need to lose between 15-25. Been counting calories and mild exercise but we are interested in trying fasting but know nothing. How do you do IF right? When do you eat vs fast and what are the time frames? Do you eat only certain things on some fasts? Help appreciated
Who left NY during covid? Where did you end up and are you going back? Is single life there better than NY life? :)
Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J). The problem is I have to fly into Chicago next weekend and will be required to take a COVID test before I arrive as I won’t have the 2 weeks to be “fully vaccinated”. Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.

Can you add parents visiting from India as dependents for our health insurance. Parents want to visit but not sure how to pay for healthcare if something COVID related happens (not sure I can trust India based insurers if something big happens).. any recommendations ? TIA
Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?
I need a part time job to be able to support my family that lost most of their income due to Covid. I’m a first generation immigrant college grad, which for me means student loans and parents with unstable jobs. Any ideas what I could do to make some extra money besides retail?
For those who have roommates and contracted covid, how did you and your roommate(s) dealt with the situation sharing an apt? Did everyone just end up with covid? Looking for tips/tricks and how long the whole process took.
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.

I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
SC at Deloitte or M at a public (but less well known) IT firm? Same pay, slightly better benefits at IT firm. Basically, how much is that brand name worth in the long run?
Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾
Biglaw senior associate - I had an underpayment penalty last year. With the big bonus coming end of the month this year, what should I do? I feel I’m going to under pay again. I’m a w2 employee
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)
That awkward moment when you're sitting in Orals for an RFP and the client says they don't understand what role you've been brought in to discuss...
My husband just recovered from covid but still has lingering symptoms- loss of appetite, fatigue, memory lapse. If you had covid, did you experience symptoms after testing negative? How long did it take you to fully recover? He got covid a week after getting first vaccine so his case was mild.
