If you live anywhere in the DC metro area, you probably know we're expecting snow today. Lots, and lots, and lots of snow. So before we get snowed in someplace for the weekend, here's a hodgepodge of tidbits from New Voices to you!

To start us off, Research!America has a paid Communications Intern position open. "Ideal candidates will have a strong academic background, excellent writing and editing skills, and an interest in medical and health research and related policy issues." If that's you - or someone you know - get applying!

Scientists to Watch
New Voices is tipping our hat to the 100 winners of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. PECASE is the highest honor the U.S. Government can give to scientists and engineers in the early stages of their independent research careers.

Interesting reading for anyone who likes the arts and science
On Art, Fairy Tales, and Creativity from Asymptotia
The Music of the Species from Neurotopia
Netflix rental trends in metropolitan areas from the New York Times

If only science worked this way...

That's it for today! Enjoy your weekend everyone!
