Happy Friday! It’s time for our weekly link-round up, where we bring you the most interesting, useful, informative, or cool stuff we find on our travels across the Web. This week: understanding job descriptions, making restaurant classics at home, and more!
- When you’re looking for a job, sometimes you need to read between the lines of the job posting—the job description is often a hiring manager’s wish list for the ideal candidate, not a list of non-negotiable requirements. This guide will help you understand what you can (and can’t) get away with when it comes to qualifications.
- Restaurant classics are classics for a reason—but they’re also loaded with calories and fat. But you can take some of those dishes and make them at home, with all of the flavor and half of the calories.
- Music can be magic—scientifically speaking. Mental Floss collects eleven ways that music can dramatically improve mental and physical well-being, from infancy to old age.
- This incredible 93-year-old woman is strong, flexible, and the oldest yoga teacher alive. Watch the video and marvel at her physical prowess—and if you’re like me, wish that you could be half as physically fit as she is.
