STEM programs really important right now?

Looks like instead of going around the country promoting STEM programs for young women. VZ should concentrate more on this for all young people https://thehill.com/policy/technology/479388-senators-fret-over-lack-of-manpower-to-build-5g

Wireless cell site tech job

Thinking about applying for this job. Is this side non union? How’s the pay? Are they likely to get laid off? Thanks

No 4-Day work week

Kyle laughed at the idea of a 4-day work week. Hmmm... well, I guess I'll take my AI and ML credentials to a company that doesn't think that question is humorous. See ya!

5G is the dream turned nightmare

CORBA is up. Insurance alternatives.

12/28 VSP here. My VZ paid COBRA will be done in 30 days. There is the VZ Acess Pre Medicare plan but for single coverage I am looking at around $1100 a month with basic Dental. Anyone using Medishare? If so does it really work?

After 30 years

I left. haha Hahaha haha. Hahaha hahahahaha ha haha Ha haha hah!

Just a holiday reminder
