All but three states have gone to a "masks strongly encouraged" general policy and/or leaving it up to local school districts to make policy for their schools. Question: If CDC says masks do nothing to stem Covid infection, and if children have statistically ZERO chance of hospitalization in the slight chance that they even contract Covid, WHY should schools still force masking?
Thoughts on visiting Singapore right now w coronavirus at a lot of the connection ports in Asia? Healthy (to my knowledge) 23 year old girl. Flights are cheap af
Don’t know why, but I am not feeling afraid of getting laid off. And also I don’t feel like pushing to get another job in case that happens. I am fed up with this visa nonsense, the corporate slavery they have in name of H1B. And also this whole world in turmoil due to covid has left me thinking what better i could do to add value to the society. Adding to the agony of American dream is the civil unrest in US, trump again for 4 years, more guns, absurdity of USCIS etc.
I got an offer from Cognizant and they are giving me senior associate projects. I am having total 5.8 years of experience. I heard Cognizant has fired employees during COVID period. How is the work culture in Cognizant right now . Is it a good choice to join Cognizant. What's the scope of oracle apps dba in Cognizant.
HR just told me I have a week to get vaccinated or leave the firm. Any amlaw firms say vaccination is optional? Is there a thread for which firms allow attorneys in the office without vaccination?
Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year. Have a wonderful school year!! God Bless All❤️
Have you had any cases of covid at your school?
Just posting to show off my new unicorn 🦄 badge 💁♂️. Apparently, I’m a coronavirus “enthusiast.” Have a good day!
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.
Are you still afraid of catching COVID?
Why you should stay invested : asset inflation, then normal inflation, low rates forever, trillions in additional stimulus, dollar destruction (on purpose), coronavirus pushed tech ahead a year or two in adoption. STONKS ONLY GO UP!
Last I heard the COVID protocols held by the unions are still standing, indefinitely. Has anyone heard differently? So tired of wearing a mask on my brutally hot outdoor shoots.
What industries are doing well right now and reps are actually enjoying their day to day? My current role has sucked the life out of me while trying survive Covid and the burnout has reached a new level. I’m actively applying but want to find a good fit I can grow with. Not a fan of company hopping.
I have ~$15k in federal loans from undergrad and planning on taking out ~$200k in loans for mba. With COVID forbearance, should I pause paying off my undergrad loans to save/invest more cash between now and August when mba starts? Trying to figure out if there is any reason I should keep paying them down.
Honest opinion, Whats ur take on workplaces mandating the COVID VACCINES on their staff? Literally, where i work at they tell us "if you dont get it then we will let you go" like How is that a choice? Im by all means not an anti vaxxer but i am against forcing something on someonw that wants no part of that Just a little venting 😃😃
How much do you guys pay for a 1 bedroom? And in what city? No “I pay $400 for a 7 bedroom in Alabama” comments please. Trying to gauge what a 1 bed in most states is. Thank you ❤️
Coronavirus is ushering in the age of the introvert!

Managers, analyst asks to take 11am flight to avoid the 6am (only two options - Mondays). Yay/nay?
This jet lag is killing me! 😭
Hit me with your most insane travel story. I’ll start... Our client restricted bringing luggage on-site and a teammate “stowed” their bag in a nearby bush outside the office... (see below)
Manager flies out on Wednesday night....better leave the client 4 hours before my Thursday flight, just to be safe 🍻👍
Told my mom my flight is diverted and I'm stranded in a random airport with a coworker and she just asked if he's single...🙄
Asking for a friend. EY asked him for salary expectations before they draft the offer. He is being considered for business systems analyst position under the service delivery center (SDC) in Atlanta. He has 3 years of experience. How much should he ask for? He was thinking 90-95k, is that high or low?
Female here. Had a female client berate me and undermine my role in front of the whole team. What is it with some women find joy in belittling other women??
Moving to NYC after MBA , gf of 2.5 years in DC , 25 & 26 years old. She won't move without a ring, thoughts ?
As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
