Author's Note*

Regrettably, some of these stories are locked behind paywalls so only headlines and a few paragraphs are visible unless you are a subscriber to The Wall Street Journal or the Bloomberg News service. I post them because they are representative of my rather eclectic interest in a number of subjects: the environment, renewable energy, medicine, food and, sometimes, just a good yarn.--KW
