Sunspots 35

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

What does the word, tmesis, mean? The spelling, believe it or not, is correct! I didn't know. See below.

An article in Physics Today on Albert Einstein as a philosopher of science.

Article in The Guardian that says that biodiesel would be worse for the environment than fossil fuels, and details the author's support for that claim.

Interview with Richard Dawkins, by Beliefnet. Lest there be any doubt, he doesn't believe in God.

Web page from the University of California on William Paley, who is associated with the Argument from Design for the existence of God. (Thanks to the Librarians' Internet Index)

From the Griffith Observatory, a page on the Star of Bethlehem, with several links. (Thanks to the Librarians' Internet Index)

A new mammal has been discovered in Borneo. There's even a photo or two.

A scarf that automatically matches the clothing item under it has been developed.

Wired article on Firefox extensions you must have. You are using the free Firefox browser, aren't you? (Should be using version 1.5 now)

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)

tmesis means "in grammar and rhetoric, the separation of the parts of a compound word," according to the Word of the Day for December 12th, provided by my personal Google home page.
