How Frustration Led to Last Week's Most Popular Story
How the Western Black Rhino Went Extinct
That article got tens of thousands of readers, more than I ever expected. Hopefully it will continue to dispel some of the misinformation that has been spread about this extinction.
In other news, here are this week's other two Extinction Countdown articles. The first is feature-length, while the second is a weekend quickie:
Jamaican Iguana Conservation Program Marks 20 Years of Success, Faces Worries about Next 20 Years
Sunday Species Snapshot: Jackass Penguin
This week also saw publication of my latest feature for Today's Engineer. I think this is a particularly important piece and I enjoyed working on it:
Federally Funded Research: The Key to Unexpected (and Valuable) Discoveries
Finally, here are two new articles for Mother Nature Network:
Global warming isn't on 'hiatus'
Scientists invent not 1, not 2, but 3 new 'invisibility cloaks' [This was my favorite headline of the week]
What will this coming week bring? Hopefully it won't involve too much frustration, but we'll see. If it does, maybe I'll turn that into something useful like I did this past week. Wish me luck!
