Well, that didn't last.: Last week's lovely showing from 3 pharma companies didn't happen this week. Maybe they're saving for next week?

Speaking of next week...: Next week's C&EN is the jobs issue. I predict 4-5 ads from different Fortune 500 type companies, with a total CJ index of about 1200 square cm. Let's hope I'm right.

Small college of the week: Ohio Northern University (Ada, OH, student population: 3,290 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for a couple of tenure track professors in inorganic chemistry and analytical chemistry. I suspect that Ada, OH is in a impossibly beautiful, remote part of Ohio. Readers, what say you?
