Two Extinctions (and Other Happy News)
First Bird Extinction in the Galápagos Islands Confirmed
Climate Change Has Claimed Its First Mammal Extinction
Luckily I had some other stuff to write about this week, but these stories for TakePart also weren't very good news:
These Maps Could Help Predict the Next Big Animal-to-Human Disease Outbreak
LED Streetlights Are Good for the Earth, Bad for Humans and Wildlife
But that's the bad news out of the way. Here, my second article for Hakai magazine, presents some interesting new science. I should write about whales more often.
Sperm Whales Have an “Eve”
All Work and All Play for Nelson Treehouse and Supply
American University’s Energy Supply Went 50 Percent Green Overnight
Finally, here's something completely different: my latest tech careers article for IEEE's The Institute:
How to Land a Job in Artificial Intelligence
That's it for this time around. Hopefully next week won't present such a bleak group of stories!
