Friday Five (scientific serendipity)

It’s the first Friday of November. That means it’s NaNoWriMo time and I’m frantically writing every day.

As I mentioned last week, my long-running weekly round up of all the links I thought worth sharing has been retired, replaced by this, my Friday Five. Only the top five (IMHO) stories of the week and five videos and a recap of my posts.

Stories of the Week:

‘Scientific Serendipity’ Spurs Discovery of New Orangutan Species.

Twitter Suspended Me for Trolling White Supremacists.

‘Kids are gross’: on feminists and agency.

‘Higgs Bison’ Is The Missing Link In European Bison Ancestral Tree.

Arizona court: Religious beliefs don’t justify refusing calligraphy to same-sex couples .

In Memoriam:

I will continue to share links to obituaries of people I think ought to be remembered, and they won’t count against the Five.

Yvonne Burney, SOE agent and concentration camp survivor – obituary

Jane Juska, author of best-selling memoir, ‘A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance’, dies at 84.
