Last week we had a great Hangout on Air with who chatted to us about how to be a better team leader in a manner that is inclusive of women in STEM. Yonatan brought up some excellent points during our discussion, such as the importance of active listening, modelling good behavior, and recognizing and rewarding positive behavior.
We wrote up about our conversation on our website, and you can check it out here: http://www.stemwomen.net/yonatan-zunger/

"Now, in a paper posted online on February 3, Terence Tao of the University of California, Los Angeles, a winner of the Fields Medal, mathematics’ highest honor, offers a possible way to break the impasse. He has shown that in an alternative abstract universe closely related to the one described by the Navier-Stokes equations, it is possible for a body of fluid to form a sort of computer, which can build a self-replicating fluid robot that, like the Cat in the Hat, keeps transferring its energy to smaller and smaller copies of itself until the fluid “blows up.”"

"I have enjoyed research and teaching for the last twelve years. Yet, I have resigned from my postdoctoral position at MIT a week ago, giving up on the dream of an academic position. I feel liberated and happy, and this is a very bad sign for the future of life sciences in the United States."
There is moral hazard builtin.

I just ordered a lawn sign. I've never had a lawn sign in a US election before. Very exciting!

Remember that you now need photo ID to vote! Check http://www.gotidtexas.org/ for further information.
Seriously. But this is a cool idea too.
