Helpful drones, killer whales and engineering careers

Well the new year is off to the races, with nine new articles published last week and several more turned in. But 2012 isn't done with us yet: Scientific American has included two of my articles in its new eBook, A Look Back: The Best of 2012. You can read all about it here or buy it here.

Sticking with SciAm, here are this week's two new Extinction Countdown articles:

Critically Endangered Parakeet Population Grows on Predator-Free Island Reserve

Crowd-Funded Drones Could Help Protect Kenyan Rhinos

Next up, a whole bunch of articles for Mother Nature Network:

Herbicide could make deadly bacteria more dangerous, says new study

Python Challenge: Hunters descend on Florida Everglades to catch giant invasive snakes

Orcas free after being trapped in ice in Quebec [I actually had to write this twice after the whales escaped moments after my first version went online.]

PETA investigation uncovers abuse at North Carolina bear attraction

Self-charging battery named one of 2012's top innovations

Sea levels could rise more than 3 feet by 2100, according to new study

And finally, here's my latest engineering careers article for IEEE-USA's Today's Engineer:

Career Focus: Semiconductors

There's lots more on the way. Follow me on Twitter for the latest headlines.
