Sunspots 47

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

From a recent Christian Carnival, a link to a post on 101 ways to get opportunities to witness. This is written by a wife and mother, so some of the ways aren't practical for those of us who aren't in that category, but there are plenty that fit you and me.

An article, by Kathryn Lindskoog, on Till We Have Faces, by C. S. Lewis. This page has a link to other articles by Lindskoog, some also on Lewis.

Bonnie wonders why she is so fond of a goldfish.

Sara, new mother, ponders her ability to care versus God's.

"Human genes involved in metabolism, skin pigmentation, brain function and reproduction have evolved in response to recent environmental changes, according to a new study of natural selection in the human genome." (from an article in New Scientist)

Kevin is unhappy about a violent (he says) video game associated with the Left Behind book series.

Thanks to Antabaka, I've seen a photo of a new genus of crustacean (crabs, lobsters, etc.) that is white and "hairy." Weird looking, but clearly a crustacean.

Wired reports that it is possible to have your appearance altered more drastically than by "ordinary" plastic surgery, for example, by having ridges put in your forehead, like those of some of the Star Trek aliens. Lest there be any doubt, I'm just reporting this, not advocating it.

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.
