Sunspots 270

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

Science:Wired reports on scientists at MIT, who are doing research on "fibers that can be fashioned into clothes capable of capturing speech, textiles that can measure blood flow in the capillaries or nets that can double as sound sensors."

NPR reports that there are insects -- LOTS of them -- flying or floating up in the air above us.

You probably didn't know that the Iroquois lacrosse team wanted to participate in the world cup of lacrosse, but didn't, according to NPR, because they refused to use passports other than those from the Iroquois nation, and the UK refused to recognize these passports. The Iroquois invented the sport, a long time ago, and the team has participated in previous tournaments. The Iroquois are from New York, Quebec and Montreal.

Thanks, Pete.

NPR is often cool.
