...and that process absolutely can, and should, come with a full tuition waiver and stipend!
By the way, I didn't really focus on this, but having a PhD really can make you overqualified for some jobs. I have seen clear examples of this. I am not saying it's right, okay? I am just saying it is real. So some notion of "do a PhD then get a "regular" job" might not work
In contrast, having a MS is almost always a plus. A MS can make you stand out amongst a stack of BS qualified people in a positive way, whereas having a PhD in the same stack gets your resume directed to the shredder by the wtf.baffled HR person. #facts.
For MAGAts spouting "most domestic terrorists are liberals" bullshit: I'm gonna hit you with some #FACTS. The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) includes systematic data on terrorist events around the world from 1970 through 2017. It includes domestic, transnational and... 1/7
international terrorist incidents. The GTD is →THE MOST← comprehensive unclassified database on terrorist attacks in the world, covering more than 180,000 cases. It includes the date & incident location, weapons used, nature of the target, number of casualties, and when... 2/7
identifiable; the group or individual responsible. According to the GTD; globally, terrorist attacks dropped from about 17,000 in 2014 to 11,000 in 2017, including a 40% DECLINE in the MIDDLE EAST, but the U.S. had a surge of terror-related violence in 2017 with 65 attacks. 3/7
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.
In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.
I see we've reached the "why didn't she tell an adult at the time" stage of the GOP response to #ChristineBlaseyFord - SIGH. Gather round & let's have a chat with some historical context to this convo.
I am 10 yrs younger than Ford & Kavanaugh - the first prominent study on the phenomenon called "Date Rape" was conducted in 1987... when I went to HS in the 90's "Date Rape" MOST people didn't consider it a true crime. #facts
Add to that the pure fact that sigmas & consequences of having BEEN raped are HORRIBLE NOW - they were down right unfathomable in the 80's & 90's. So no - a teenager that was just assaulted in a "date" scenario in the 80's would not have told an adult.
(1) The only time Democrats care about the US citizens of Puerto Rico is when they can make political hay out of them.
At all other times they ignore the territory & it's extreme poverty, economic dependency, & rampant political corruption.
Hurricane Maria deaths estimate.
(2) Watching hurricanes #Katrina & #Harvey from afar was an experience that radicalized me to become a Hurricane Watcher, focusing on storms affecting the US. Harvey had the potential to be another Katrina. Thanks to sterling work at all levels, Katrina-level tragedy was averted.
(3) The fact is, #Harvey, #Irma, & #Maria were handled well by local, state/territory, & federal government. Far Left Democrats FEEL that Maria wasn't, but Far Left Democrats feel a lot of things, especially since the #TDS pandemic outbreak on 11/8/16.
Aujourd’hui j’ai du temps entre deux fit de données pour vous parler du merveilleux conte de fée du 100% renouvelable.
Attention, on va être méthodique : des chiffres, des sources, des comparaisons, vous allez être servis ! #Facts
Ceux souvent qui prônent le 100% EnR sont ceux qui disent que l’atome, c’est comme le carbone : c’est Satan personnifié. Et souvent, ils veulent le remplacer par le solaire (PV) et l’éolien (EO).
Moi, un 100% EnR, si ça marche tout en gardant notre mode de vie actuel, je signe et on y va tous ensemble gaiement. Franchement, personne de sensé ne serait contre !
Phillip Paulwell is weaponising misinformation. The facts are the Simpson-Miller administration only used 52% of the SCT they imposed in 2015 on an oil hedge which covered only 1/3 of oil imports over the period and expired worthless. #Facts
Reasonable minds can disagree on policy but don’t play with the facts. They are pretending as if ALL of the SCT they raised in 2015 was spent on an oil hedge. Here are the facts:
The PNP and Paulwell are also pretending as if the oil hedge in 2015 covered ALL oil imports. Here are the #Facts:
Who would have thunk!
British hauliers will need licenses and permits to be able to drive on European roads. In a no deal scenario there will be no way of getting UK goods into Europe!
Yup! This is not #Scaremongering but #facts #BrexitMadness
Take a look again at the situation on the Border with Turkey: Trucks driving into EU will need permit from every country they need to pass! #CustomsUnion means free movement of goods but not trucks. ft.com/content/b44586…
Fayose's decision to borrow 56 billion with a fresh application of another N25 billion in 2017, without any significant socio-economic impact puts @GovAyoFayose's understanding of governance & economics in question. And also confirms his lack of transparency. /1
With low jobs growth, no wage growth, no industrial development, no investment in agric & no socio-economic plan, where does future govt revenue come from? @GovAyoFayose has presided over the worst govt ever to drive up #Ekiti State's debt without a plan to fix the economy. /2
Contrary to the lies by @OlayinkaLere & @GovAyoFayose, the first 30billion in this chart is an accumulation of accrued debt b4 & during @kfayemi's tenure. He ensured that 14.5b was paid out of the 25b loan before he left office. By Oct 2014, #Ekiti debt profile was 10.5b. /3
