FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, a few items that I would like to point out for this weeks newsletter as well as upcoming newsletters. Firstly you may notice from time to time duplicate articles. This is by design. In order to keep the newsletter functional and each section reasonably short and readable we use a combination of sources to gather the news. What this may end up as, is a duplicate situation if one of our news source does not refresh any, or all of their articles that we gather from week to week. We do not anticipate that this is an issue and of course will mean that from time to time there will be duplicates in a number of areas. We do not think this detracts from the newsletter, and it is also a way to catch up on articles you may have missed from week to week.

In addition to this, as we are almost at the end of the year there will be just a few more newsletters to look forward to. This means that in 2018 we will catch up and continue with any news that we may have missed from 2017. There will be at least 1 more newsletter for 2017.

Thank you again to all of our readers, we do this for you and we know how useful having this digest can be. Don't forget that we have every newsletter archived going back to 2009 for you if you ever want to look for something from a prior edition.

I wish you all a fantastic week ahead.

Virtually Yours
