Rhino poaching, Apple controversy and Russia's bad smoking habit

Wow, after last week's long list of publications, this week's five new articles almost feels like a letdown. But all of these articles attracted huge numbers of readers, generated discussion and had an impact. For a journalist, things don't get much better than that.

So, first up in this week's link parade are my two Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:

Rhino Poaching: An Extinction Crisis

Cost to Prevent All Future Extinctions: $11 per Person?

The "cost to prevent" article was also reprinted by Mother Jones.

The rest of this week's articles all appeared at Mother Nature Network, where my editor always finds a wide range of topics for me to cover:

Panda: It's what used to be for dinner in prehistoric China?

New Apple MacBook gets EPEAT Gold certification, but critics cry foul

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev vows smoking ban by 2015

That's it for this week, but I already have at least seven new articles in various stages of completion and lots more on the horizon. So stay tuned, there's lots more ahead.
