Sunspots 522

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Christianity: A review of Lauren Winner's book, Wearing God, by Relevant. Winner discusses some interesting Biblical metaphors for God in the interview, and the book. Not just Father, or Lord.

Relevant also tells us 5 ways that viewing pornography ruins a marriage.

Computing: National Public Radio reports on how good a job (or not) various traffic and map apps really do.


Health: Wired has some suggestions for making the development of effective antibiotics more attractive to drug companies.

Politics: Benjamin L. Corey believes he knows what a truly Bible-based nation would look like. Maybe not like you think.

Science:  Wired tells us about a woman who has deliberately let 200,000 bedbugs bite her.

I would like a traffic app if it were accurate, but it seems that the ones available now are no more accurate than the traffic updates on the radio, and more distracting. I'll stick with the radio. I can usually tell if an accident sounds like one that will have cleared by the time I get there, or not.

The "Christian Nation" article was intriguing. I think that all of us who call ourselves Christians should live like Christ, as much as possible.

According to the report, the apps available aren't very accurate. It's too hard to get good up-to-date information in real time.

Mr. Corey's writing is always intriguing.
