In this issue:  It's a great time to look for a job, race
and law enforcement, and the danger from solar storms.

Fast Company describes four alternatives to the traditional
office holiday party.  Companies looking to do more to honor
their employees are coming up with more meaningful, creative
ways to show recognition to hard working staff.

Chemistry World reports that an Ebola vaccine has passed its
first safety hurdle.  The vaccine was developed
collaboratively by scientists at the NIH's National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and at
Okairos, a biotechnology company acquired by GlaxoSmithKline.

Will the new Google Glass look like the old Google Glass? 
It looks like we're still a long way from smart glasses that
actually look anything like regular glasses, according to
Fast Company.

Fast Company says the holiday season is a great time to look
for a new job.  If you're planning to wait until the new
year to start your job search, you might want to reconsider.

---Law Enforcement---
Fast Company reports that there will be no indictment in the
Eric Garner choke-hold death, which was caught on video.  On
Wednesday, a New York grand jury in Staten Island elected
not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the white police officer who
put Eric Garner into the choke hold that caused his death.
Fast Company discusses what Americans are saying after the
failure to indict over Eric Garner's death.  People are
calling for reform and organizing demonstrations on social
media via the hashtags #ShutItDown, #DieIn, and
Fast Company says the viral flood of responses under the
hashtag #CrimingWhileWhite purport to tell of times crimes
(ranging from the petty to the serious with everything
in-between) that were ignored or forgiven by law enforcement.

---Space Weather---
National Defense says we need a more robust early warning
space weather system.  The challenge for the space community
is making lawmakers who hold the purse strings understand
the importance of space weather forecast, and the impact
that events can have on modern technology.
