Hi! Question. How does your company handle the communication between customers and solution engineers during integration? Do you use Slack, Jira, etc? We are using Slack but some customers won’t use Slack so then it’s bleeding over to other forms of communication that are less ideal. I’m starting to wonder if we would be better off doing Jira tickets. 🙃

Mamas who took a maternity leave…How did you do it? Did you wait until you went into labor or did you schedule a hard date to start your leave? What did you do before you left to prepare your team for your leave? Trying to finish out the last few weeks before my leave starts and I’m a planner and a worrier (if you couldn’t tell 😂)
How do you assure yourself that your baby (7 months) is crying at night for reasons that can be helped by sleepy training and not pain or illness? My daughter cries bloody murder, like she’s in horrible pain or something, several times a night. There’s no “always” solution: sometimes she settles with a bottle, sometimes with cuddles, sometimes a diaper change, etc. I’m just at loss, especially as she is perfectly fine and happy during the day.
We're a small division and need some help testing. Do you think it would be a conflict of interest to have an ESL teacher proctor the ACCESS if their child was one of the students?
Not sure if anyone has experience with this but figured I’d ask. My 8yo daughter has been gaining weight over the last 2 years. Started during covid being home a lot and I guess eating more than normal. Schedules now are back to normal and she’s still gaining. I’ve gotten rid of all unhealthy food in the house but she will eat a lot of everything, always wants seconds and very hard to control. I don’t know what to do. Is it too early for a nutritionist?
I'm looking for Bluetooth headphones that have volume and mute buttons for use on conference calls, can connect to skype, and with two ear pieces. Recommendations? Budget around $100.

How are you teaching middle or high school chorus in the fully virtual realm? I’m looking for new ideas and techniques. I hate that my choirs can only sing on Zoom with everyone muted...that’s the opposite of choral singing :-(
About to be a first-time father. My wife is taking a break from nursing to be a stay-at-home mom for a while when our child is born and said she'll get up at night to take care of him. I want her to have a happy and healthy recovery though, so I don't want her to be up all the time if our baby happens to cry a lot.
Was the snoo helpful for anyone? There's a sale and I'm thinking of buying one as a surprise. Just want to be a supportive husband and father. Thanks!
What is the homelessness situation like in Nashville? Currently live in Seattle and things are out of control here. Everything's too expensive, and the city doesn't have enough shelters for everyone. It's a mess. Hoping to move somewhere calmer where the city gives a f*ck about it's people. Mother in law lives in Nashville and she'd love to be closer to the grandkids, but rampant homelessness is a deal breaker for me.
Have people received inflationary raises? My dad received a letter stating that they’re giving him a 6.5% raise + a one time lump sum of $750 bc of inflation, retroactive to July 1st. He works for a university and is part of a union. Kind of feel like my company is being shady because I work in CRE & we do raises + bonuses in February which was when I was planning to ask for an inflationary raise. But I feel like a lot of companies have done this without having their employees ask?
Is there any better feeling than when one of your dickhead MDs tells you something is a shitty idea, and then that exact merger scenario happens within days/weeks?

Money or passion? Spent the last 2 years building my own company after burning out. It's been tough financially but I really believe in it. Now a previous boss has made a great offer, but I'd have to give up on my company (not enough time for both). What would you do?

Recommendations on apps to use for the gym? Looking for programs that will tell me what machines to use, at what intervals, etc for a week of workouts
After 2 years in which I’ve gained about 20 lbs, I’ve decided to give up on IF and admit it doesn’t work for me. I really believed the hype and hoped it would be a silver bullet for weight loss
Any experiences/credible resources for or against raising kids with a vegan/pescatarian diet? My husband strongly believes we should. I eat meat, but want to keep an open mind.
I go out for my run at 5:00 AM in morning, this has been my habit since this summer, and this schedule serves me well (I have started and stopped running multiple times because of schedule conflict) , now that weather is changing (got into 40s already in early mornings), and where I live soon it will be freezing temps.
Would love some suggestions from early morning runners, how do you manage these months of the year? Any specific outfits you recommend?
Has anyone seen more progress when they upped there NEAT calories burned (ex walking more) and had less intense workouts.

What's your favorite home gym equipment? Thanks!! We are moving to the suburbs and intend to invest in one home gym item.
I feel really lethargic everyday. It helps if I exercise in the morning to be more active, but sometimes there’s just no time for morning exercise. I’ve been thinking about getting a standing desk to help with this? Any thoughts of this will help? Or something else that might help? Thanks!
I’ve been trying to cut weight now for some time and can’t seem to make a big cut. I was around 212 in November/December and around 198 now but still feel massive. I’ve gone from 2500 cals down to 2k and don’t know if I’m stalling or just carb sensitive. When I counted macros a while back and did low carbs I saw differences but then have also been told it’s cals not carbs..

ISO shorts/leggings/capris for running that don’t fall down or ride up. I am not skinny. I want to concentrate on my workouts and not my clothes. I do not want to join a membership to buy clothes either (aka Fabletics).
After 17 days of eating mostly health and booze I ate a burger and tots yesterday. Gained 3 lbs overnight somehow 😞
I used to be very active but lately I’ve been down and I can’t shake it. I use to love working out to relieve anxiety and stress and now all I want to do is lay in bed in the dark and listen to my fan. How do you get back to getting on your feet and start to feel better? This may be a complex question but maybe reading ideas will help.
If he has never wanted one or talked about one def not a great move. If he cycles or actually likes them= great move
Does he want one?
I have a Sopranos DVD set which I also used when I first started indoor training. I find I still need TV if doing Zwift or an easy ride but prefer the Workout videos on Wahoo for anything intense. If he is into it, a smart trainer sounds good. I think the Kickr comes with a free trial to the Wahoo app. (Most apps give free trials anyway). There is also a Kickr bike but if he has a bike and you do not intend to use, the trainer is more cost efficient. Lots of other accessories too. I have the Clymb but not really impressed with it.
Unless it’s a subtle suggestion he lose weight, I think it’s a great gift idea! I didn’t really understand the anger behind the commercial. Even if he doesn’t bike but generally enjoys working out, I think it’s a good idea (especially if you’ll use it if he doesn’t). My boyfriend never did a spin class before and hadn’t rode a bike in years, but he generally enjoys working out, and he loves our peloton (which I mainly got for me tbh it wasn’t a gift but still).
I’m not sure how subtle of a suggestion spending $2k on exercise equipment would be 😂
If it’s something he’d enjoy and has expressed interest in having there is nothing wrong with it. If it’s a low key suggestion from you that he needs to lose weight then it will probably go over like a lead brick. Fitness is an interest of mine so I would not be offended by receiving a piece of fitness equipment as a gift.
I did not understand that at all…I ask for fitness related stuff all the time. It really depends on the person you’re buying for. If he’s a fitness nut, I think you’re safe.
Lol not bad at all if he wants one?
If he hasn't been using something similar, don't get it.
Agree that if he’s expressed interest in a Peloton or enjoys the stationery bike, it’s a great gift idea.
It’s only an issue if you give someone a gift that suggests a need for self improvement if they haven’t expressed interest in that item or activity. No exercise equipment for a spouse who’s sensitive about their weight if they haven’t explicitly asked for it and don’t use it already, no makeup set or shapewear for a friend if you’re not 100% they want it, no money management books or software for your adult child, etc.
Men aren't that sensitive that we would get offended over a fitness bike. 99.999% of men would love it and would love to test it out right away
If he’s been asking for one, or talking about it I don’t see the issue.
I also don’t get the issue. My husband got me a Brompton for Christmas. I didn’t ask for it, but it’s cute and I really like it. I’d love fitness related gifts.
If he would like it then knock yourself out. I would love all the fitness gifts
