Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with. By contrast, people under the age of 50 comprise 7% of COVID deaths. Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
I quit my job after COVID and took a hiatus from working. I'm applying to new jobs now, how do I explain the gap in my resume?

Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now. A lot of my friends from here are either married, moved out of the area, avoiding going out cuz of COVID, or hermits. 44/M
Omg I'm an enthusiast. Covid dreams come true
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
For a medical exemption from the covid vaccine is a medical note required if you are pregnant? Please don't lecture me about how I should get it when you know nothing of my situation.
If the vaccine mandate for jobs is about reducing collective health risk, than why is it not targeting the age groups that are most vulnerable to covid?
Does anybody have any data on likelihood of dying from covid vs likelihood of dying from the vaccine? I got the vaccine, my friend didn’t and she keeps arguing that it’s more likely to die from the vaccine than getting covid. I tried researching but couldnt find a comparing data. Help!

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
Can you get back Virgin Atlantic miles spent on booking a reward delta international flight if you cancel the flight due to coronavirus?
Is it possible Fauci is lying to us about needing a “cure” when he already acknowledged we had one for SARS / novel coronavirus back in 2005? HCQ + Azithromycin + zinc function as both a cure and a vaccine. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1232869/ https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2020/04/27/fauci-knew-about-hcq-in-2005-nobody-needed-to-die

Suggestions for November 2021 Baby Moon locations? Looking for somewhere where covid rates are low
Would anyone buy a restaurant? There's a decent restaurant near where I live selling for what appears to be a pretty low price (assuming due to COVID). I'm really tempted to give it a go, and I have the finances to "weather the storm" until vaccines are out. I would of course go over their books before moving forward, just curious if anyone's had a positive experience?

Anyone here from the UK? I'm on a H1B and ain't been home in a fair while. Was hoping to get back for Christmas, given it looks like travel is opening up (at some point?) In November, but my immigration counsel seemed dubious on how easy it would be to renew the H1B to get back to the States in a reasonable time. While country looks like bedlam atm tbh.
When did you feel like you were successful? People around me think it’s impressive that I work at Deloitte; however, I’m miserable and hate the work I’m doing. Just accepted another job that others would deem a dream company and salary but I’m just afraid of being miserable there too. I just don’t feel like I’m good enough, will be happy, or be in a position where I feel like I’m successful as others.

Does anyone have a good way of dealing with sudden rushes of anxiety? I get anxious really easily before any medical exam/large meetings where I have to speak/presentations. However once I start speaking I am no longer anxious, so this doesn’t really affect my performance. I am just worried these anxiety spurs may jeopardize my health. Anyone else feels the same?

Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
