Hellbenders, Angry Birds, How to Develop Apps, Mobile Learners and lots more
Here are this week's links. First up, my usual two Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
Endangered Ozark Hellbender Salamanders Breed in Captivity for the First Time
Do PCBs Still Threaten Humans? A Turtle Study Suggests They Might
Also, last week's article on rare Hainan gibbons was reprinted by the Huffington Post
Mother Nature Network had three new Platt bylines this week. I particularly enjoyed this first one, but all were interesting to research and write:
iSchool Initiative inspires students to go paperless and become 'mobile learners'
Should New York City ban horse-drawn carriages?
Former missile complex to become 'mock city' for training first responders
I loved conducing the interviews for my latest Today's Engineer article, which looks at a growing technology career:
Career Focus: App Development
And finally, after some time off, the folks at Green Hands USA have started up again. Here are three short new articles for them:
Does Your Tuna Contain Mercury?
Save Green While Going Green: Try Leasing Solar Power
Angry Birds Helps Fight Bird Extinctions
That's it for now. More next week!
