I just wanted to point out that ALL the news coverage of this story exists thanks to TONMO and DWhatley in particular! Back in November she posted a link to the research article, and I decided the world must know. It took several weeks to raise an editor's interest, but eventually Earther published my story on Christmas--and the senior author on the paper was flooded with media inquiries the following day. :biggrin2: So, THANK YOU!

The fact that someone sees the new article links I post makes all the time I take to read and choose the abstracts Google sends me daily worth the effort! It also looks like the new format for featuring content help bring audience attention.
