Hi does anyone have any recommendations of what kind of jobs/career I can apply for with a Bachelors in Theology and World Religions and a Masters in International Relations.

On top of that I realised when doing my masters that I didn't enjoy Politics, which was quite a blow as my goal was to eventual become a Political Affairs officer. I just feel quite stuck and would really appreciate any advice.

How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD??

Does anyone else feel like Olympic campaigns are seriously subpar this year? (One exception being the skateboarding FB ads by Droga). Normally I feel like there are at least several great campaigns you see over and over and this year I literally can’t even bring many to mind. Wondering if the cause has been covid production restrictions, or less money pumped in due to fear of the games being cancelled, or brands feeling like the Olympics shouldn’t have even happened. Thoughts?
