Why are all the articles for translation SO OLD?

Here is a "Recently Added" Spanish article:

http://duolingo.com/#/translation/55e1550b85695e26c38269c807580b08

Follow the link to original, and you'll find it was published...in 2007. In fact, almost all the "recent" science articles are from 5,6,7+ years ago. For some kinds of articles, this doesn't matter, but for news-related items, the age kind of takes some motivation out from translating it. XatakaCiencia is still publishing, where are all the new articles?

Good point. We are working hard on getting more interesting content on duolingo. Expect improvements in this area soon.

Severin, has any progress been made on this issue? I believe many Duolingo users will agree the translations are the best way to practice and one of the best features of the site.
