  1. I'm a management consultant and our company is planning on completely remote business through spring 2021. We're primarily in data analytics and resource optimization, human and capital. I spent 60+ nights in hotels last year, 100k miles on airplanes, tens of thousands on rental cars and restaurants. I'm one of a dozen people in my position, and we're a relatively small firm. Even our sales team is setting remote appointments, and they travel more than our project teams. The travel/dining/hospitality industry is really going to suffer from these kinds of losses. I know we are not the only company significantly scaling back our on-site appointments.
  2. Works for me. I'll send you a PM

  6. Thanks for your interest and understanding. I’d rather sell them local as I don’t currently have anything to ship them in.
  7. Done. Sold to stacked up pending payment.
  8. Let me see if I can find a tube. If so, I’ll ship them both for $50 plus cost of shipping. I’d guess somewhere in the neighborhood of $25-$30.

  11. I'll take that. I'll pm info.
  12. I work as a management consultant in the higher ed and healthcare industries. Faculty costs are absolutely not the primary factor in increasing tuition rates across the US. It's actually one of the areas administrators have tried to trim the most, by way of using more adjunct faculty and TAs. A few of the big hitters driving up costs: Rapid and constant changes in technology over the last 15 years and the necessary infrastructure to support it Aging campus plant and infrastructure, and the increasing maintenance and repair costs Insane growth in administrative departments, including adding departments that never existed (Office of Sustainability, Diversity office, etc.) Expanding campus footprints and adding lavish student amenities (rec centers with climbing walls and lazy rivers, large residential suites with private baths, etc.) Decreasing pool of incoming students means price per student has to go up to maintain expenses Decreasing State Appropriations to higher education You will see significant numbers of small, private campuses closing in the next 10-15 years or being swallowed up by larger campuses. You will also see a number of public, regional institutions close or consolidate.
  13. VP audition. She's a bland centrist who carried 2/3 of the vote in NY. She'd look great to suburban white women as the sidekick to a real contender.
  14. I read the same or similar piece. It makes a lot of sense, black mothers are often solo caregivers and public schools certainly aren’t helping to pick up the disciplinary slack.
  15. It is. It’s called vocal fry. She is absolutely manipulating her voice to sound like that. She sounds like a high school girl.
  16. Shimano Sedona 500 FD in like new condition both cosmetically and mechanically. Includes box and papers. $32 shipped.
  17. Done
  18. No problem. Thank you.

  20. I'd rather not go that low with shipping. I could knock a few bucks off to $29, but that's it.
  21. Can't read? Can't write? Kent State!
  22. I fly through Atlanta weekly on Delta. There are delta gates at all all concourses in Atlanta (T, then A-F). Atlanta is huge, but you should still have plenty of time for a meal and to walk or tram to your gate. The best restaurant at ATL is One Flew South in Concourse E. Other good spots are Chick Fil A and Varasanos in Concourse A, Paschals in Concourse B, and Chicken + Beer in Concourse D.
