Sunspots 215

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

"The little editor in your mind is no longer returning your calls, is he, Nona?" Sally Forth, syndicated comic strip, June 11, 2009.

Wired has a video on cleaning skulls, using flesh-eating beetles.

Slate on the long time for validation of the discovery of element 112 (which has not yet received its final name).

William Saletan, of Slate, has some suggestions for pro-life and pro-choice advocates that might help them to come to agreement, on some topics related to abortion.

With the NBA finals over, men's basketball on TV is on hiatus until November or so. I note that, of the ten normal starters of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Orlando Magic, only four are products of college basketball. The others were drafted out of high school, or from Europe. I also note that, in spite of the preponderance of African-Americans among the players, and quite a few among the coaches (an African-American was coach of last year's champions) both the coaches were white. (Both had African-Americans among their assistants.) The Women's NBA schedule is here. They will continue to play during the summer.

CNet has an article on identity theft, including a link to a web site that assesses the likelihood that your identity is at risk.

Weekend Fisher has some fresh insight into Matthew 24:13 (which says that those who endure to the end will be saved.)
