This Week in Peace History -one item has very interesting timing this week
Note: Here's a really interesting one (timing-wise) with North Korea nuclear testing in the news:

October 10, 1963

The Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty took effect between The U.S. and the Soviet Union. In 1957, Nobel Prize-winner (Chemistry) Linus Pauling drafted the Scientists' Bomb-Test Appeal with two colleagues, Barry Commoner and Ted Condon, eventually gaining the support of 11,000 scientists from 49 countries for an end to the testing of nuclear weapons. These included Bertrand Russell, Albert Einstein, and Albert Schweitzer.

Pauling then took the resolution to Dag Hammarskjld, then Secretary-General of the United Nations, and sent copies to both President John F. Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev. The final treaty had many similarities to Paulings draft. It went into effect the same day as the announcement of Paulings second Nobel Prize, this time for Peace.
