Sunspots 510

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Christianity: A Christianity Today blogger has advised a woman, who is most likely pregnant with a Down syndrome fetus, to keep the baby.
Relevant tells us how to pray when we don't feel like it.
Education: National Public Radio reports that (surprise!) teachers do have favorites, and they get better grades.
FiveThirtyEight tells us that our brains are pre-programmed to draw wrong conclusions, at least some of the time.

Politics: The Jerusalem Post says that the Netanyahus have been accused of lavish household spending, at taxpayer expense. (The possible scandal is called "bottlegate," because a lot of the spending was on alcohol.)
Science: Wired describes some examples of really strange sexual behavior in animals, and considers the question, "Why is there sex?" (Many animals can reproduce without it.)
The Atlantic discusses the precision of clocks, including the idea of the Leap Second.
