Last week there was no "honorable mentions" list of articles, and someone emailed me and asked where they were. Well, it's a good question and I thought I'd try to answer it before listing some of the other articles that came close to the finals blogs list this week, articles that were shared by a lot of people. The problem this last week was, as I said, the overwhelming amount of articles on the theme of money. Anyway, the reasons for last week's lack of an honorable mentions are manifold: (1) the "honorable mentions" is not meant to be a regular feature, merely a feature that when I do get articles on topics that are not blogged about, but which came close to being blogged about, I mention them in an "honorable" mention; and (2) If I have the time to compile an honorable mentions list I do so. Last week it was a bit of both: there were not enough articles on various topics to gather together, and I was far behind schedule-wise to do so anyway, as I'm burning the candle at both ends trying to get a book done.
But this week there are some honorable mentions, in some cases a few people sent articles, and in some, just one or two people (and as usual I'll try to mention them). Again, thanks to everyone who spot and send articles:
Ms. M.W. spotted these two articles:
Mr. N. spotted this article about a suppsoed Nazi u-boat in Antarctica (and I'm skeptical, if for no other reason than the "u-boat" does not look like the majority of boats in service with the German navy, except perhaps the Type 21):
Mr. T.M. spotted this update about the gold mergers:
And Ms. K.M. spotted this on giving infrared vision to mice:
