THE BEST SCIENCE HAPPENS AT 4AM

I am only going to bed just now, at 4am, because I couldn't turn off the pbs/nova episode "What Darwin Never Knew." Sometimes i think the best science is the kind that brings you smarter, better questions.

ZAZU: THE HEADLINE READING ALARM CLOCK

If you have a droid, there's a handy little thing called Zazu. It's a combo alarm-clock, headline reader- the awesome part is that you designate RSS Feeds for it to follow. After the alarm clock goes off, you can have the droid read the headlines to you from the RSS feeds while you're still waking up!

RÉSUMÉS, COVER LETTERS, AND TYPOS! HELL!

I had the recent unfortunate experience of digitally submitting a résumé and cover letter for a job opening. About four hours later, I found the typo: A missing "R."


It is my understanding that Human Resources departments are inundated with far too many applications for any posted job, and giving them a reason to frown at your résumé, like a typo, is going to result in tragedy for you.
