Sunspots 205


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



Science:
Wired reports on an asteroid that was tracked on a collision course with earth, from the neighborhood of Saturn.

Wired also reports on evidence, including a photo, that our ancient ancestors may have cared for a handicapped child for a long time.

Sports:
Frank DeFord, of NPR, rejoices that four highly paid sports bad guys were cut from their teams, in spite of their talent.

Philosophy:
(or something) e! science reports that graduate school students have not had sufficient education as to what constitutes plagiarism. I suspect that the problem is much more fundamental than that.

I do wonder how some of these scientists come to their conclusions, but interesting to think about.

In this case, the evidence was a fossil skull, which, they said, showed evidence of a problem over an extended period.

Thanks.
