Sunspots 393

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

Science:  The Register reports on the discovery of a planet that's not orbiting a star.

Sports: Wired has an interview with the author of a book on luck and skill. In the interview, the author says that, of team sports, basketball is most influenced by the skill of the players, as opposed to luck, and he tells us why that is so. (The interview is about other interesting things, too.)

The Arts: I haven't seen Lincoln yet, but Wired has what I take to be a solid review of the film, including statements on who should, and should not, see it.

Politics:  Conservative Christian, and columnist, Cal Thomas has some advice for his conservative Christian colleagues, in the wake of the recent election. Good advice.
