My father in law feels that as a white man he’s discriminated against as all his bosses are women. Every time I go to fight on this I get flustered and upset. Recommendations to address civilly?
So I got laid off. Have minimal savings - had been redirecting most of my salary to pay off student debt. What options exist to borrow in the short term at low interest?
Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.
Or… should I take a small loan?

Thinking of re-vamping my cc strategy. Currently have the Amex Plat and the Delta Amex Plat (mainly just for the companion pass each year which cancels out the AF) but because of the increase in Amex Plat’s AF I’m thinking of downgrading to Amex Gold, then getting Delta Reserve card for Skyclub access to replace my Delta Plat card. Thoughts on this or is there something I’m not thinking of? Lounge access and Amex’s transfer partners are the two main priorities to me
Wife told me the other day, after a 70 hour week, that it's easier to think of herself as a single parent. That way she's less angry at my job or firm. I hate that she feels that way. 3 yrs & 4 mths.

Is it a red flag as a candidate to ask if a company offers maternity leave? I was recently laid off, so I wasn't expecting to lose my job. We're planning on trying for a baby in the next year or so, so it's really important to me that my next job offers paid maternity leave.
The issue is that it's so rarely advertised on company web sites, but ultimately better maternity leave would sway my decision for a job. Is there a way to ask this tactfully? Or without raising red flags?
I need advice. A student at my worksite came to school with a gun. He’s a SPED kid, and administration did not inform anyone. I had to help the teacher and instructional aide deal with the incident. I told the AP that we needed to do more. I was ignored. I fear for the safety of teachers and students. What can I do, when union reps got involved and administrators did nothing.

Hi friends - need a suggestion. My mother got critically ill due to Covid and has been in the hospital in India for over a month with added complications. Hospital charges are through the roof and it is a long road ahead of us. Are there financial aids, options available to explore to meet the expenses? We are salaried people and parents are retired. We are exploring loan options and wanted to check with this group for other creative ways to manage. Thanks a lot for the help!
Suppose to do an in person interview in my home for a nanny last Thursday from an agency but she caught covid. They wanted to reschedule for today saying she’s now negative. I’m pregnant with my elderly mom living with my husband and 2 small kids. Would you feel safe meeting in person?

Hi single parents! How do you cope with being the NOT preferred parent? They say a mom and son bond is unbreakable but my son always chooses his dad 🥲 no matter how hard I try for our relationship, he always misses his dad even if they spent the whole week together. I love that their relationship is strong, but still hurts to know he’s fine without me but not his dad!

In the past I would use Brightscope to search companies 401k ratings. They have since been acquired by ISS and they no longer offer this information publicly. I am interested in seeing details about your company.
(1) 401k plan provider
(2) company match
(3) option to purchase additional PTO
For example, at my company GDIT
(2) 100% match up to 3% of your salary, then 50% match for the next 3%, making a total of 4.5% of your salary
(3) yes, up to 40 additional hrs

I just recently got promoted to be a director for the company U currently work for. I’m fairly new to the company and been a nurse for about two years. I was excited to take on the challenge but already i feel like it’s “eating me up”. Any advice on how to balance a healthy home life time a way from work, with a strong healthy work life. I feel that I’m spending all day at work every day which is likely to burn me out. I really want to succeed in my new role.
I just got a new job offer and currently going through the background check with hireright and it’s taking FOREVER! Of course no record or anything bad so I’m like what’s the hold up! I guess I should mention I no longer enjoy working at my current firm so maybe that’s why I’m being impatient! Lol. Has anyone else dealt with this?
anyone else get annoyed when there’s no proper documentation from last year and for some reason no one does what was done and why so they expect you to figure it out 🙃🙃🙃
this is an in house situation too which makes it more annoying
Few tips to improve your visual design skills
- Learn Typography: Typography is essential because 60-70% of user interfaces are about written content displayed in a meaningful way.
- Learn Layout and Composition: You don’t need to be pixel perfect, but if you place labels 10px above inputs, you must do that consistently across your whole design.
- Learn Color: Color doesn't need to be complex. Understand how colors interact with each other and learn how color can set moods.
Today's epiphany: the secret to being happy at a freelance gig might be to do your best to think of whatever you can in the time you have. But not take any of it too seriously.

Questions on crypto ....please help me understand:
1) if cryptocurrency is burned, I understand this to mean that the token has been sent to a wallet that can only receive the coin but never release it. Is it possible to trace who sent burned the token?
2) if yes, technically the one who sent the token to wallet still owns the token, but they will never be able to retrieve it. In theory, don't they still own this token? Could there be possible value in selling a traceable burned token?
