Frog Week, Fulgurites and Freebies
Which is what I'm doing now, as a matter of fact. Yup, it's time for my weekly Monday linkfest. This time around I've got nine new articles for your reading pleasure.
I'll start with my Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American, which covered two critically endangered frogs and one spectacular (and also critically endangered) bird:
Good Dads Help Rare Haitian Frogs Breed in Captivity
Squeaking By: Frog Species Rediscovered in Ghana, but Invasive Devil Weed Threatens Its Survival
Sunday Species Snapshot: Bali Myna
Next up, my latest for IEEE's The Institute. Although geared toward engineers, these lessons are good for just about anybody:
Learn Effective Communication Skills With Free Online Lessons
Art that sucks: Dutch artist proposes 'vacuum' to clear Beijing of smog
New studies provide clues into colony collapse disorder and other bee deaths
Sweetening the bottom line: Tobacco farmers switching to stevia
Electrical safety: How electrical current affects the human body
Fulgurites: When lightning strikes sand, magic is formed
That's it for this week. I already have several items for this coming week turned in and working their way through the editorial process, so make sure to follow me on Twitter for the latest links as they happen.
See you in seven days, Monday!
