This month’s ToPIX update includes additions to the Industrial Psychology in the News Page and the Song List.
Assistant ToPIX Editor, Jessica Hartnett, posted a link to an NPR column on the Missile Crew cheating scandal. These are individuals charged with launching nuclear attacks. Jessica notes that this story could be used to explain organizational culture and counterproductive work behaviors that result from corrupt culture.

Some Taylor Swift (“I Knew You Were Trouble”) was added to the Song List in the context of the hindsight bias. Check it at http://topix.teachpsych.org/w/page/54339452/Song%20List
