Sunspots 187

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

Wired reports on stars with an immensely strong magnetic field.

(or something . . .) A map of what soft drinks/pop/soda are/is called in the US, by county. Fascinating.

(Not on-line, so far as I know.) I watched a little of ESPN's men's college basketball coverage on November 18th. President-elect Barack Obama (by tape) said that he had gotten to play a little against Tyler Hansborough, North Carolina's national player of the year for the previous season, during the campaign, and almost scored against him. Hubert Davis, ESPN commentator, and former UNC player, said that he was there, and watched this in person, and that Hansborough contained Obama pretty much completely. Bobby Knight, former coach, and also ESPN commentator, told Davis that, in a few days, Obama would be in charge of agencies that could make Davis disappear, so he'd better be careful. It was all good fun (I think!)

Bob Jones University has apologized for its past racist policies on admission and inter-racial dating, saying that they were shaped by the culture, rather than by the Scripture.

Jan has been posting on servant leadership, or Christian servanthood. Here's one of her posts. Short and to the point.

Somebody has posted a graphical representation of the cross-referencing between parts of the Bible.

Someone named Anonymous found one of my old posts, (on Abishag) over three years old, a couple of days ago. I thank God that He helped me write it, and that it is still available.

Thanks for reading!

Love the "soda" map. I always called it "pop" because I grew up in the Midwest. Now I call it soda, living here in so. Cal. Language is so interesting. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Thanks, jan. I used to call it soda pop, too. Now it's soft drink.
