Sunspots 92

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

Humor: This one is partly science, but take your time. Don't go there yet. It's Procrastination Central, by a social scientist.

Science: Fish, including some pretty small ones, make sounds.

Some supposedly "pure" white people have been found to have black ancestry.

Politics: A one-time feminist argues for chastity in non-married women. (This is in the Times of London, not some religious periodical.)

A good post on Christianity and pacifism. (It's a complicated subject, folks)

Sports: For the first time, a National Football (US football, that is) League coach in the Super Bowl will be black. In fact, both of them will be. I don't believe a National Basketball Association league championship coach has ever been black. Last year, one of the coaches in the championship was black. At least once, the winning team had a black General Manager. Both the NFL and NBA have mostly black players, but it has taken some time for this to percolate up to management and coaching in these team sports. I don't follow baseball, soccer (everybody else's football) or hockey as closely.

Computing: The Firefox browser can be set to open more than one home page.

Christianity: Heard on a broadcast by Ravi Zacharias, Jan 21st: "Christ didn't come to make bad people good, He came to make dead people alive."

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.
