Sunspots 186

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

I'm not sure quite where to put this. Jan has a good short post on crying.

It's possible that a man has been cured of AIDS by a bone transplant, Wired reports.

National Public Radio reports that we have photographed large planets from other solar systems.

(or something) Wired on why we have five time zones in North America. (China has only one, I believe.)

A Slate writer discusses a politically conservative environmentalist agenda. (And says that that is not an oxymoron!)

CBS News points out that, for teenagers, the dangers of driving drunk are much greater than those of on-line predators.

Ken Schenck on the Tribulation: "But Paul knows nothing of a seven year tribulation."

Schenck also reviewed a book on women's roles, by a Christian author. He says that the author argues that the so-called traditional family, with the woman at home, is a post-industrial revolution development. ". . . before the industrial revolution everyone was at home and everyone worked at home."

The article on the time zones is interesting. Who knew?

Thanks, Julana. Not me, for one.
