Hey folks! Happy Monday!
Last week saw the publication of two big new features, both of which I feel have already had a pretty big impact. I can't believe how many emails and tweets I got about them.
Obama in Kenya: What the President Can Do This Weekend to Help End Poaching
And here's the second feature, my latest technology careers piece for IEEE-USA InSight:
Cybersecurity Professionals: The Government Wants You [Seriously, if you know any smart kids or young professionals, point 'em toward this career.]
No Motherhood Yet for 100-Year-Old Turtle
Finally, here are two more wildlife-related news articles for TakePart:
Climate Change and Mosquitoes: A Deadly Combination for Hawaii's Rare Birds
Canine Cops Target Ivory Smugglers in Africa
That's it for this time around! Join me next Monday for more or follow me on Twitter for the latest links as they happen.

I also wrote two other endangered species stories for SciAm and TakePart:
World's Biggest Bumblebee at Risk of Extinction
Groups Ask Obama Administration to Protect Critically Endangered Pangolins
My last of this week's headlines comes from IEEE's The Institute, where I once again profile the annual Presidents' Scholarship winner (one of my favorite gigs of the year):

That's it for this week. Make sure to tune in next Monday for more links, or follow me on Twitter for headlines as they happen!

|Triskaidekaphobia is a thing. Don't judge me.|
Anyway, last week saw several projects get off my plate and into the world. Here are the first two, my latest "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:
Wolves and Monkeys: Unusual Hunting Buddies
Endangered Antelope with Fur More Valuable Than Gold on Its Way to Recovery
Next up, two new wildlife/environment articles for TakePart:
Plastic Bags Are Killing Fish—but Not in the Way You Might Think
Will the Drought Topple California’s Towering Redwoods?
And finally this week, here's my latest for IEEE's The Institute:

Lots more in the days and weeks ahead -- assuming I make it through today, of course!
Monday, July 6, 2015
A New Threat to Whales: Snake-Oil Salesmen
Poaching Could Cost Africa Millions of Jobs
Those were both for TakePart, by the way.
I've been working at kind of half my normal levels for the past two weeks (which was almost, kinda, sorta like a vacation), but I'm back to full speed ahead starting today. Expect a whole bunch of new articles for all of my regular publishers over the next week and beyond!
