Sunspots 45

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

The Great Separation says that there are victims of pornography, and links to two of them. (I found this post through the last week's Christian Carnival.)

Wired on a study of how easy it is to misinterpret e-mail.

In The New Atlantis, an article on kitchen appliances. The author describes our love-hate relationship with them, and points out the extreme specialization and expense that some of us go to to find a device that will do some job. The general impression given is that a lot of stuff that goes in the kitchen is vanity, vanity.

The birth of her first child, a son, to Sara. My guess is that she won't be blogging very much for a while, but she did post a photo, with vital statistics.

Brandy posted some quotes from Greg Laurie.

Kath posted some good advice for guys for Valentine's Day.

Suggestion, in New Scientist, that the primary function of color vision is to detect emotional signals, like blushing, from others.

A wedding invitation, with a wedding web page URL enclosed.

Julana pointed to a fine post on how Christian bloggers (and blog readers) should act.

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

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarians Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of them are great.

Almost every time I watched Martha Stewart, I finished thinking I could use a new kitchen tool, that just fit a particular job.
My grandmother entertained thousands of people over the years, without those gadgets.
I have a feeling our kitchens are better equipped than ever, and we eat in them, and practice hospitality less. (re the New Atlantis article)
Thank you for the HT. I thought those guidelines were so good. Bertrand is an intelligent writer, and obviously put some thought into those.

Check out the hungersite at See what you think about it. If you think it is credible would you include it in a Sunspot?

Martin LaBar said...

Thanks to both of you. Mufana, I complied. See next Sunspots.

Will you be attending the wedding? If so, I'll see you there.
