Sunspots 408

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

Science: Chimpanzees and humans are often claimed to have DNA which is over 90% similar, or identical. A recent analysis claims that the similarity, or identity, is, rather, on the order of 60-70%.

A 37 second video in the Huffington Post on the creation of knots with water -- you have to read the description to see what's going on.

Reports in TGDaily and elsewhere that the Arctic icecap is expected to be so reduced (or gone) that ships could sail across the North Pole within 50 years.

Politics: NPR on the President's message about the sequester, and on Speaker Boehner's. There's  plenty of blame to go around.

Computing: (Actually, Photography) A 5 minute 42 second video from the BBC, showcasing entries to their garden photography of the year contest. The entries are broader, being from nature in general, not always obviously from gardens.
