2018 issues differences between online archive and Australian edition

As per my previous post (here for reference), I will make a posting of all differences I see between the online version, and the physical copies we receive here in Australia. 

Also as mentioned by Scott in an earlier post (here and front cover variants here), the UK versions were guest edited and there were 6 cover variations, but here in Australia we seem to have received the American versions and there are only minor changes (or rather ommissions) in our issues.

2018 December:

-Everything is identical save for the advertisements.

2018 November:

-The "What's Coming" page is not wedged between the contents page in our issue (see below).

-No "Your Shot" page which to be fair is labeled as an advertisement.

-Everything else is identical save for the advertisements.

-My cover is identical to American editions, not that of the UK. It is interesting that the front cover of the UK version has Mars, where the topic of Mars in my edition was only discussed in two pages. I would be curious to know if more was discussed in the UK version (as with the other below issues that were guest edited).

2018 October:  

-Our subscription copy is the newstand edition, minus the barcode

-Everything else is identical save for the advertisements.

2018 September:  

-Everything is identical save for the advertisements.

2018 August:  

-Newstand cover without the barcode, non UK cover.

-Everything else is identical save for the advertisements.

2018 July:  

-Newstand cover without the barcode, non UK cover.

-Everything else is identical save for the advertisements.

2018 May:

-Four pages with the Jeep advertising are not present (bottom half is Jeep, while top half is the "captured/Clipped Vision" section, the other is the "Psychology" section, the other st is the "Food/No-Melt Ice Cream" section, and finally the "Stone Age Slugger" section).

-"Breakthroughs" page with Limpets, Plants That Don't Sleep etc. is not present.

-"Pop Omnivore" page not present.
