Subject: C&EN editorial

DCHAS members may be interested in the editorial in the March 28 issue 
of C&EN news, which discusses the graduate chemistry education scene in 
the U.S. Of particular note is the paragraph that says:

"The difference between the safety culture of academia and that of 
industry and government labs is apparent in the workshop report. It 
states: =93When employers review r=E9sum=E9s, non-academic internship 
experiences stand out. This is especially true when industry and 
government lab participants discussed the difference in the safety 
culture between their environments and academia; knowing a student has 
experienced that culture already makes employers much more comfortable 
in the hiring process. The attention to safety is often the most 
surprising aspect of starting a new position in an industry or 
government lab.=94 "
