But they display a set of behaviors that make them admired and loved.

Employers: Is Facebook a friend or foe?
By Julie Bernhard
With Facebook's 10-year anniversary coming Feb. 4, many can't even imagine what life was like without it. What started as a college kid meet-up is now the world's largest social network, boasting 1.15 billion users, according to CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg, and a company value of over $100 billion. Aside from the obvious, there isn't much censorship in the social media realm. It's also really easy to believe that the information is seen by your "friends" only, but at the end of the day, it's still the Internet. What you post could hurt you, and believe it or not, employers want to know your status.

Don't just talk about diversity; implement it
The Huffington Post
According to a conservative commentator, "diversity can be annoying when enforced." Indeed, for those who hold the largest piece of the communal pie ― more than their fair share ― making room for everyone at the decision table is intrinsically off-putting. Plurality is for bureaucratic hundred-page diversity plans, not for implementation.

Congress and NIH don't see eye to eye on science education
Science Magazine
You might call it a failure to communicate. But the drama is playing out in real life at the National Institutes of Health, not in a movie. This month Congress told NIH to resume support for several science education programs that NIH director Francis Collins had decided to terminate after the Obama administration announced last April that it wanted to reorganize STEM education programs throughout the federal government.
