I'm not wearing it but I've been very tempted to get it. Just not ready to bite that signicant cost on top of what I already pay for fitness, especially because many reviews say it's best at getting you to sleep more and that isn't happening here (although I know it should).

I would not wear on Shabbos but I'm curious what you'll hear!

Is eating before fast bad because drinking is good?
The idea is electrolytes are good and so is water, so either do like so:Or just have them separately
Interesting, thanks

It's good but not a replacement
So it's actually worse? Then why do doctors specifically recommend Powerade before the fast to pregnant women?

Is Powerade better than water before a fast?

As time passes, I am only getting more and more impressed by the selflessness and dedication of @cgr . She has started numerous threads about all sorts of financial aid for struggling people, aside from her website which contains an encyclopedia of information.

Here are just some of the threads she started over the last four months:
Fee Waivers due to Coronavirus
Coronavirus Stimulus Aid Package
Residential Mortgages
Compassionate Helper Volunteer Program- NY
NY Rent Relief
Heath Insurance Premium Credits
IRS Tax Credits Available for Business (FFCRA and ERTC)
New York Forward Loan Fund
NJ Rent Assistance Program
NJ Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program
Main Street Lending Program
NY Rent Assistance Program
NJ Commercial Rent Relief

But most impressive is how she responds to every question, often for the fifth or sixth time, with endless patients and clarity. So many people are lost when it comes to these matters, and they cannot afford to hire accountants or lawyers, but they are helped through the work of @cgr . Her website has no advertisers, and she doesn't charge a penny for her services here on DDF.

Some people get involved in activism because it brings them attention, but this forum is anonymous. Some get involved because it's easy and exciting, but they get burned out when it drags on too long. It has been four months already, and she doesn't stop answering each question, often doing research in order to do so.

Here's just a simple post from today - the 2,544th post on a thread almost completely moderated by her - that gives a glimpse into the type of work she has done for others.

I'm jealous of your Olam Habah, @cgr .
Can't agree with this enough

If it does, I would love to be involved. It's been a while but I was a magazine editor back in the day.
