Chemistry News, general press articles

The online news sources below are made available by major scientific organizations and are written to inform and inspire professionals in biochemistry.  These articles have authority (from where? why?) but their purpose is different from empirical research articles and review articles.  These writings do not go through the peer review process (why not? who does review the articles?) How might  these help undergrad chemistry students with their research?
