Sunspots 358

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

Science: Karl Zimmer, science writer extraordinaire, in Discover, reports that autism is due to the addition of too many brain cells during fetal growth. Amazing!

National Public Radio reports on the size of the eyes of giant squid -- the largest eyes known on earth.

Politics: (sort of -- not much) National Public Radio reports that adding renewable energy to the US power grid causes problems, because of its unpredictability.

This may partially explain why Meth/speed and Schizophrenia medications are linked as possible causes of autism.

Maybe, atlibertytosay. And, although Zimmer is a fine science writer, I'll be amazed if the research he reports on is the last word on autism.
