Flightless parrots, Alaskan weirdness, and lots of turtles

Here they are, last week's 10 new articles.

First up, two new pieces for my Extinction Countdown blog for Scientific American:

Next up, the usual collection of news items (at least one of them rather odd) for Mother Nature Network:

Alaska proposes federal takeover of NYC's Central Park

CDC issues new warning about salmonella from pet turtles

Causes founder Joe Green doesn't regret not helping Mark Zuckerberg launch Facebook

And finally, several short blog posts for Green Hands USA:

This coming week should see three new tech-oriented feature articles that have been pending for a while. Meanwhile, I'll be diving into seven new features and a boatload of other articles. It's going to be a busy month!
