    Dear Quentin, I read your column regularly. I never thought that I would reach out to you with my own issues. But I was wrong. I’m hoping you can help on how best to handle this situation. In 2016, I lost my long-term job. The company simply went through serious changes, and my position was no longer needed. They were great to me when I worked there, and they gave me a small severance package. I was 55 at the time. I was more than a bit anxiety ridden as I wasn’t in a position to retire, and I was concerned about the prospects of being rehired at this age. The good news is that I was a saver, had no debt and always lived frugally. My husband’s job carried the benefits. “ ‘I woke up every morning at 4 a.m. to research, research, research how best to...
    A young nurse who never envisioned herself working in disaster circumstances during a viral pandemic was forced to reconsider her career path once the strain of providing care became too much, just one example of the toll that COVID-19 has taken on healthcare workers. Hannah McSwain, 26, started her career in nursing in 2017 at AdventHealth Tampa hospital, where she worked as a team leader in the progressive care unit, an intermediary step between the intensive care unit and a general medicine floor where patients still need a high level of skilled nursing care. In spring 2020, the PCU was converted into a COVID-19 unit, one of seven in the hospital, and McSwain was tasked with leading her team of nurses through the daily rigors of caring for patients who often would not leave the hospital with their loved ones. Just as her husband and parents began to...

    With the libraries shuttered, except for curbside pickup, Denver Public Library adult services librarian Heidi Young wanted to give people in the city a way to express their thoughts and emotions about COVID-19 and this brutal year. Inspired by Quaranzine, from the Arlington Public Library, Young decided to create a zine in which library staff and customers could reflect on these brutal times. "For myself as a teenager and a young person being involved in the underground music scene back in Seattle, zines were circulated a lot in that circle," Young says. "I would trade zines with my friends and drop them off at independent bookstores." Zines are DIY, homemade magazines often showcasing works by artists, writers, photographers, and other creatives. Young thought it would be the perfect way to give her coworkers an outlet.

    Dear Moneyist, There have been several COVID-19 cases at my company. ‘There have been several COVID-19 cases at my company. People have been out for at least two weeks because they were either sick or thought they had coronavirus. Most of us, but not all, wear masks inside the office. My coworkers are coughing and sneezing for days, but nobody does anything. Other coworkers complain, but I worry that I will get into trouble, so I don’t do anything. Of course, those same coworkers talk about their parties, trips and don’t wear masks. What is the right way to handle this? Please don’t add my name. I’m worried I’ll get in trouble. M.W.

    New York Times opinion writer Bari Weiss has announced she has quit in a scathing resignation letter that slams the newspaper for fostering an 'illiberal environment' and censoring centrist opinions. Weiss, who joined the Times in 2017, said the paper of record was among the media institutions now betraying their standards and losing sight of their principles as she accused them of only publishing stories that 'satisfy the narrowest of audiences'.    In her lengthy resignation later addressed to publisher A.G. Sulzberger and posted on her website on Tuesday, Weiss claimed that intellectual curiosity and risk-taking was now a 'liability' at the Times.

Weiss also accused the outlet of creating a 'hostile work environment' for employees that had anything other than left-of-center views.   She says this mentality has resulted in her being constantly bullied by coworkers who...
