    [–] Expect more worrisome variants after Omicron, scientists say cubansbottomdollar 1 points ago in Coronavirus

    At some point, I think we have to recognize that

    A) COVID will never disappear. It will continue to mutate until it finally becomes endemic and isn't as deadly, such as the seasonal flu.

    B) As trusting as we should be of highlighting important, tested medical information, digested and presented by professionals in the medical community, we have to recognize that the media will always have a substantial interest in generating revenue and clicks. Take that with a grain of salt the next time you read a speculative headline like this.

    [–] What are some businesses in the Valley that you will never go back to or recommend to anyone? cubansbottomdollar 6 points ago in RioGrandeValley

    There are two shoe shine kiosks at La Plaza mall. One by the doors next to the food court and the other near a soccer store that's supposed to specialize in tennis shoes.

    The kiosk by the food court doors is staffed by men who have clearly been doing this for years that charge $6 for a shine. The other is staffed by teenagers no older than 19 that charge $10.

    Take a wild guess which one I regretted going to today.

    Honestly, i didn't necessarily have a "bad" experience there, but you definitely can't shake the feeling that you're being hawked at to make sure you don't steal anything.

    [–] Latinx people residing in Trump states reported especially poor mental health after the 2016 election — cross posting from science to gauge peoples feelings on this and/or the term “Latinx” in the rgv! Let’s be civil. cubansbottomdollar 35 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in RioGrandeValley

    Gauging the RGV's feeling on "Latinx" is like gauging the entire latino population about the term.

    We don't like it: https://www.politico.com/news/2021/12/06/hispanic-voters-latinx-term-523776

    EDIT: Well, there you have it OP. You've asked and some of the more active members on this sub majoraly have the same negative feelings toward Latinx. Maybe make a poll next time.

    Why anyone uses Uber Eats or is beyond me.

    [–] I’m 18 and want to move out of my parents place. I know where I’m gonna move to, the thing is can my parents find a way to drag me back? cubansbottomdollar 2 points ago in RioGrandeValley

    If you want to leave, then they cannot legally stop you from doing so.

    I'd imagine you don't have any money saved for a deposit/first month's rent for an apartment, so I'd recommend staying with a relative or a friend until you can get on your feet with a job or get into student housing (if you plan on going to school).

    Good luck
