Sunspots 434

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

The Arts: Frederik Pohl, who wrote excellent science fiction novels from 1954 to 2011, recently passed away. (He also wrote many short stories.) His novel, Gateway, won about every award possible.

Computing: ABC News tells us that the next version of the Android operating system (used on over half of all smart phones, and on tablets) will be named Kit Kat, after the candy bar. (Previous versions have been named Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich, among other names.)

Health: (and Christianity) National Public Radio reports on a Texas megachurch where 21 people have caught the measles.

Science: National Public Radio reports on the discovery of a canyon, longer and wider (but not deeper) than the Grand Canyon, beneath the ice of the Antarctic. reports that some tiny frogs use their mouths, rather than the middle ear, to magnify sound.
