10 signs the interview went well
Fast Company
You were punctual. You confidently answered all of their questions. You researched the company and asked intelligent questions. By all accounts, it seems the interview went well — but how do you really know? “When you walk out the door, it’s easy to second-guess and relive how an interview went,” says Devony Coley, senior consultant for the recruiting firm WinterWyman. “Everyone wants to hear that they’re someone’s number-one choice.”

Self-assembling nanococcoons mimic natural viruses
Scientific American
Scientists have designed short peptides that self-assemble with DNA to form virus-like capsules. These nanococoons could offer a new route to transport genes or small-molecule drugs into cells, the researchers say. When developing the new particles, Ying Chau and Rong Ni of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology tried to mimic how virus proteins encapsulate their genomic DNA. Viruses use simple protein units that assemble along their DNA, like a stack of Legos, she says.

Phys.org
Scientists should study pseudoscience — see what the pseudoscientists are up to and perhaps (for a laugh) try a few pseudostudies themselves. Critically, scientists must learn what really distinguishes science from pseudoscience. We can fall for comforting myths, with pseudoscience being the domain of cat palmists on TV claiming to predict earthquakes with the moon. Amusing, sometimes exasperating, but mostly harmless stuff.

Voices: Matt Taylor isn't the only one hurting women in STEM
USA Today College
It’s no debate that the shirt Matt Taylor donned during the momentous landing of the Rosetta spacecraft was disparaging to women seeking to make a difference in the world of STEM. And it’s no debate that one of the most brilliant scientists in the world has symbolically portrayed the ongoing trope of women belonging in men’s sexual fantasies rather than in science labs, whether he himself believes in such tropes or not. But when do we cross the fine line in which constructive criticism becomes mass bullying?

Mentor or best friend: Which management style is best?
Fast Company
For decades, managers led with a heavy hand from corner offices. They demanded respect and expected employees to follow their direction. It was all about command and control, but the power-suit/power-lunch boss is a dinosaur in today’s workplace. "Baby boomers climbed the corporate ladder under that type of leadership, but gen-X and millennials thrive with something much different,” says Thomas Moran, CEO of the professional staffing and search firm Addison Group.
