looking for a post about learning to write

There was a (fairly recent I think?) question on AskMe from a person who was trying to help their son get better at writing coherently for school assignments and provided an example of the son's recent writing as an example. My partner's son is now experiencing a similar problem (distance learning is not helping, thanks pandemic) and I would like to find that question since I remember a few educators popped up in the answers with good advice. Thanks.

Six-volume (so far) thriller/spy series on Green/Blue?

I thought it was in this Ask, but it isn't. Very recently someone referenced a series of books in the political/thriller/spy/something genre, and said "and volume 6 has just been released on Kindle" or similar. I need a good book series and for the life of me I can't find this comment. Help, please? Thanks!

Two tips to be successful at work

I can't remember which colour board it was on, but there was a post/comment outlining two complementary attitudes/behaviours that were expected by bosses and enacted in the workplace by employees who were seen to be playing the game right. They were about performing what is asked without quibble. [more inside]

Comment about keeping Nazis out of bars?

A few months ago on the Blue (I think), someone posted a comment with link to either an article or a social media post about how a particular bar owner kept his place clean of Proud Boys, Nazi sympathizers, etc. Can someone help me find it? [more inside]

We're starting the numbering over because it's not 2020 anymore! No, really, it's not. Seriously. Anyway, happy New Year! [more inside]
