Sunspots 196

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

A Reasonable Imagination has some advice, from (fictitious) publishers, to St. Augustine on the manuscript of his Confessions, and for C. S. Lewis on the manuscript of his Miracles: A Preliminary Study. Unfortunately, it rings true.

We still don't know everything. Surprise! Carl Zimmer writes about "vaults," tiny cell parts (organelles) that seem to be found in most living things. We don't know what they do. They may have some relationship to cancer. Zimmer has another post about vaults here. There is a brief Wikipedia entry on the subject.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved a trial of embryonic stem cells in paraplegic humans, says Wired. The cell line used was one of those approved by President Bush in August, 2001

An article about Anthony McGill, who played clarinet (with some other luminaries!) for the inauguration of President Obama.

Heart, Mind, Soul and Strength continues her thorough study on prophecies in the gospels, and their fulfillment.
