Sunspots 41

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

Thanks to a Google alert e-mail, I found a blog post on Psalm 84:11 (the source of the title of this blog)

A Nature News article says that web users make decisions about the appearance of a web page in as little as 1/20 of a second. (Are you still reading this?)

Bonnie writes (well, as always) about the relationship between faith and experience.

Ben has some thoughts about well-tempered mathematics. (Yes, he does mention well-tempered music.)

Thanks to the Librarian's Internet Index for pointing to a site saying that the US Food and Drug Administration advises against sonograms of unborn babies for no medical reason.

Tim Stafford, in Christianity Today, writes about affluenza (Maybe I've got it. Maybe you, or your kids, or your peers, do or will).

Thanks to Arts and Letters Daily, I link to a light-hearted article in Opinion Journal, on Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr. Seuss. The author offers two interpretations of Seuss. One, it's a kidnap story. Two, it's about salesmanship.

My wife (and others) say that I have a very poor sense of taste. I think they are right. I don't drink wine, but I was interested in a report in New Scientist that says that eating cheese masks subtle differences in wine taste.

NPR reported on Google Maps Mashups. This site is a blog that posts on interesting enhancements to Google maps.

Sara has passed on a list of movies that will never appear on the Lifetime Network. I doubt that they'll be titles of faith fiction novels, either. Sample: The Successful Surgery That Improved the Quality of the Patient's Life.

A key statement in End of the Spear is this, by Steve Saint, to Mincayani, who, in the movie, has just revealed that he killed Steve's father, missionary Nate Saint, years ago: "No one took his life. He gave it!" (This Christianity Today review says that Mincayani is partly fictional, but also says that the story of the film, and the deeper story behind it, are true.)

Charles Colson and Anne Morse have some great advice for Christians on politics.

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