Hi friends!

It's a quick version this week, and a day early. I'm in over my ears with training, travel, and a long weekend off. Fortunately all good things :-)

As a reminder, a "quick" version is where I gather the stories that I found interesting, but I use the default summaries provided by the newssites themselves.
