Another week has gone by and it is time for me to summarize this week’s posts for those who have missed out. Links are provided to each one for curiosity.

I’m happy to report that the week of August 18, 2019 was the best individual week for PYCR yet! I had a series of very popular posts including three news articles and two “perspectives posts”. The “perspectives posts” are a new post format that I’m exploring. Fortunately, they appear to be doing very well.
