image for PhD students told to consider selling Avon products to make ends meet

Postgraduates chosen for their “excellent potential” to become future leaders in environmental science and sustainable business should consider selling Avon products, pet-sitting and joining clinical trials to cope with the cost of living crisis.

The letter describes how PhD students can boost their finances with university level teaching and training, tutoring, and exam work, and goes on to suggest dog-walking, pet-sitting, paid-for clinical trials and selling Avon products as alternative sources of income.

Adriana Lowe, who was awarded a PhD from the University of Kent in 2019, said she was “outraged” at the suggestions.

Natalie Starkey at the Open University called the advice “unbelievable”, while Jess Wade at Imperial College London called it “appalling”.

“This is just another example of how PhD students are completely let down by the system.

While they’re called students, they’re producing vital research which in many cases has a direct and meaningful effect on wider society,” said Lowe.

The primary concern here is the cost of living crisis and its disproportionate impact on our research students. »

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan said the public is "rightly suspicious" of the Supreme Court if the seating of a new justice can change the meaning of laws — an apparent nod to recent instances in which the bench has overturned longstanding precedence.

Hours later, in never-before-seen surveillance footage released Thursday, the senator, now looking quite timid, is seen literally running away from the same mob.

The striking footage didn’t sit well with Michael Fanone, a D.C. Metropolitan Police officer who was beaten, electroshocked and nearly killed by the insurrectionists.

“The fist pump, combined with what he did in the immediate aftermath, just shows [his] true character ― or lack thereof.”. »
