Sunspots 275

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


(Except that this is a sad note) Cathy, the cartoon strip written and drawn by Cathy Guisewite, is ending after 34 years of gentle humor.

The Panda's Thumb reports on experimental results indicating that seemingly directed growth in chick embryos is actually the result of random cell movement.

Wired reports on the history of well-known symbols, such as that for the On button on this computer.

Christianity:N. T. Wright reflects on C. S. Lewis.

On my most recent post, do you think the gymnosperm in the final picture is a juniper? That's the only one I know of whose cones are adapted into a berry like structure. BUT, not being up on all my gymnosperms, and just googling for junipers, I am still not sure. The "berries" were not yet the purple color, but I thought perhaps there were still immature?

You're the only "expert" I know who frequents my blog - - - so I'm askin' YOU.
