Here’s what we’ll be talking about while we’re waiting in line for a latte.

From Noah: The BBC’s new nature documentary host had an embarrassing meeting with her most famous predecessor.

From Sarah: A proposed bill of rights for science students, and terrifying news about increasing use of the strongest antibiotics as bacteria evolve to resist them.

From CJ: The NIH found some smallpox samples stashed in an old storage room. Oops? And meet the coywolf.

From Jeremy: There may be some hope that amphibians can develop immunity to the infectious fungus that’s been devastating global frog and salamander populations. And arctic shorebirds are shifting their nesting dates to accommodate warmer temperatures.
