  • A survey of (science-focused) freelance journalists. It isn’t pretty, but there are reasons to be optimistic for would-be freelancers. Really well done

  • Ousting M23 is just the start, according to Laura Seay. Excellent article on the future of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Here are some of the best and worst “Africa Charity Ads” of the year. All four of the best ads are respectful and manage to get the point across in a really compelling way (I’ve previously written about #3 and #4)
