Sunspots 299

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

Science: (and The Arts) Vladimir Nabokov, author of Lolita, was also a butterfly expert. Carl Zimmer reports, in the New York Times, that the late Nabokov's once-dismissed speculation that some butterflies migrated across the Bering Strait, and ended up in South America, was correct.

Sports: A college basketball  player recently made 8 shots from half court in  a minute, setting a record with his achievement, according to Wired. The  report has video of the event.

Wired reports on a book about various myths in sports. One such, it turns out, is true. The home team has an advantage, in any sport checked.

The Arts: Spring, from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, accompanies an artist drawing with sand.

Christianity: An essay defending egalitarianism (between men and women) in church leadership, by John Stackhouse.
