Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
(This doesn't effect me . . .) NPR reports that some people's hair changes from curly to straight, or the reverse, on its own.
(or maybe science) Wired has a group of articles on how to fix our power infrastructure. Here's one of them. There are links to the others, which include better batteries, ways to store energy for peak use, etc.
A formula that lets you know when a basketball game is out of reach of the losers, from Slate.
From Christianity Today, on how the scandal of the AIG bonuses applies to us. Whoops . . .
To toot my own horn more (I hope) than usual, I have also written about AIG and me.
On a personal note: this morning, I seem to be totally pain-free, thank God. I had continued to have some pain in the lower right leg, starting soon after back surgery on the 16th. It seemed to disappear by last evening. It was never the main problem, just a minor annoyance, but I'm glad it's gone.
