I ordered gloves on Amazon shipped from China didn't arrive after 8 weeks.
Seller rating was terrible everyone saying it's a scan, so I Emailed seller and they refunded

Item arrived 3 weeks later (total 11).
I actually feel bad for seller, as they are full of 1 star ratings with comments saying they are scammers, meanwhile it's just covid delayed shipping from China it seems.

A balance of some days home and others in the office, with employees sharing space in the office is the way of the future.
I'm just waiting for the employee to be able write off home office for tax like self employed.

IDK. Never looked into it. Remember that in the Siddur the AR sometimes rules differently than his SA.

What did you say with your kids?
The Aramaic version? Hebrew?

If anyone can chime in I'd appreciate it.
This psak is in many places (that עיקר הברכה היא פתיחתה וחתימתה) so it's hard to imagine the alter Rebbe went back on it.

And the nusach of the page for kids was made or reviewed by the Rebbe IIRC, by kehos, definitely not the Alter Rebbe.

Questions for chabadniks @ExGingi
Why does the ברכת המזון לילדים in our siddur not have a חתימה - i.e  בריך רחמנא דזן כולא
Acc to the Alter Rebbe in shulchan aruch this would be an integral part of the nusach

My insurance gave a discount only because I am not driving to work, and only using car for essentials

Surely this is flawed, as even those driving regularly are still at less risk of accident due to less traffic in general.
Or is this not a given

Email from chase over yom tov.

Your bonus offer is extended
(for accounts opened from 1/1/2020 through 3/31/2020)
As we all adjust to the impacts of COVID-19, we want to make sure you have enough time to earn the new account bonus on your IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card that you opened on February 5, 2020.

That's why we're extending the time for you to earn your bonus by 3 months so you now have a total of 6 months from your account opening date to earn your new account bonus.
There's nothing you need to do to activate this extension it's automatic.

Please stay safe and, as always, thank you for being our customer.

Amex doing the same?

I hope all 80 million don't post here that they received their checks.
If they all get a post count why not.

Can one do a puzzle on Shabbos?
Specifically,
Time period of לאלתר and definition of פסולת for non food items that will be used later but now not wanted (separating sides from middle pieces)
Does this change on yom tov and how?

Is there a master list somewhere showing what cities/states/countries have mandated/recommended

School closures - to what degree
Non essential business closures - to what degree
Travel restrictions - to what degree

It would be interesting to compare
