Sunspots 99

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

Fairy rings are made by mushrooms. The Botany Photo of the Day has posted a satellite photo of fairy rings in London.

A complaint about the "Jesus Tomb" video from Scientific American, no less.

Also from Scientific American: a beaver has taken up residence in the Bronx.

Astronomy Online is a good general source.

The Chicago Symphony has changed its summer schedule to avoid an anticipated outbreak of 17-year Cicadas. Really.

My team, the Southern Wesleyan University Lady Warriors, won the National Christian College Championship. This is also, mostly, the team that went to Europe on a mission trip. I was privileged to be present for the chapel where they reported, and to see a few games, before we went West.

A Slate article on Zoho, a web-based, but nearly free, alternative to Office.

Henry Neufeld on why everybody needs help from experts in studying the Bible (even after taking Greek and Hebrew classes).
Henry Neufeld, in a different blog, on the ESV Bible. (He finds both good and bad in it.)

A position paper from Stanton F. Jones, of Wheaton College, on homosexuality. (Warning -- this is a .PDF file)

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.

I wonder if cicadas will be a problem for the orchestra at Chautauqua??

I don't know. There must be someone, possibly the local Agricultural Extension Agent, who keeps up with such things.

Cincinnati, including the orchestra, had a problem last year with cicadas.
