Whales + Bees + Radio

Hey folks, it's time for my regular Monday morning linkfest of my articles from the previous week.

This time around there's not all that much to read. Only two of my bylines appeared this week, along with one fun little extra. Let's get to the headlines:

Should Humpback Whales Be Removed from the Endangered Species List? (Scientific American)

Bees Are Getting a Buzz off Neonics, and That Could Be What’s Killing Them (TakePart)

And here's the extra: my latest appearance on the Green Divas radio show (along with an accompanying blog post):

Extinction Sucks, But You Can Make a Difference

This coming week should see a lot more of my articles -- in fact, I know it will, since at least two of them are pending publication first thing this morning. Make sure to follow me on Twitter for the latest links as they happen!

Seal Placentas, Frogs with Claws and Shy Turtles

I write about some weird, wonderful stuff.

Case in point, this week's two "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

Critically Endangered Frog Claws Its Way toward Recovery

A New Tool for Conservation Genetics: Seal Placentas

Another case in point, this week's articles for TakePart:

Is This Turtle Too Shy to Be Saved From Extinction?

A Big Gold Mine Could Wipe Out a Tiny Endangered Critter

Say Good-Bye to Fish and Chips

This coming week should see at least one of my technology-related articles and lots more about weird wildlife. Stay tuned. Come back here next Monday or follow me on Twitter for headlines as they happen.

Zoos, Evil Chocolate, 3-D Printing, Polar Bears and Chinese Smog

Holy freakin' cow I published a lot of articles this past week -- 10 articles from five different publishers! No wonder my fingers hurt all weekend!

With so much to read, I'll skip the big preamble. Instead, I'll start you off with this week's "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

How Zoos Acquire Endangered Species

Is Chocolate Driving Monkeys into Extinction?

Next up, three eco-themed articles for TakePart:

The Big Reason the Deepwater Horizon Disaster Is Not Over

Seafood Surprise: A Third of These Species Faces Extinction

Forget Secondhand Smoke—Start Worrying About Secondhand Smog

Sticking with wildlife, here's my second article for South Africa's Earth Touch Network:

Climate change will scramble polar bears' diets – and eggs aren’t the solution

Switching gears, my latest technology careers article came out in IEEE's The Institute this week:

Thirty-Five Percent of Engineering Jobs Now Require 3-D Printing Skills

And finally, three of my earlier articles from The Institute and Today's Engineer were revised and updated in the IEEE Spectrum 2015 New Career Guide.

That's it for this time around -- stay tuned for more next Monday! If you can't wait that long, follow me on Twitter, where I'll share the latest headlines as they happen.
