Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Have you read Toby Appel's Guide to the Orchestra? (Sample: "Trumpet players are the scum of the earth. I'll admit, though, they do look good when they're all cleaned up.")
The brightest supernova ever recorded has fueled the interest in these objects, and what causes them.
The largest dinosaur ever found in Europe has been recently discovered.
Science, on scientific breakthroughs in 2006.
Merriam-Webster has recently accepted 100 new words, including mouse potato and sandwich generation.
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 Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of these sources are great.
Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
