Sunspots 533

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

Christianity: Ken Schenck tells us that the primary duty of the church is to worship God.
Computing: (or Fashion) Wired reports on a woman who printed her own clothes with a 3-D printer.

Wired reviews Windows 10 -- quite positively, but don't install it quite yet, yourself -- let Microsoft get out whatever bugs there may be.

Some artificial intelligence scientists are saying that we need a world-wide ban on the production of robots which are designed to kill people, using their own artificial intelligence. Some of them already exist.

Politics: (or business) National Public Radio tells us that human trafficking is widespread in agriculture and fisheries, around the world, with some in the US.

OpenSecrets is a non-partisan web site that keeps track of money and politics.

Science: Wired reports on "Kick 'em Jenny," which is the name of a dormant volcano, (I am not making this up!) which may be about to erupt.

NPR reports on transporting, as done in Star Trek. One atom at a time. Sort of.

Congratulations to Nancy Lieberman, who has been hired as an assistant coach in the National Basketball Association. (She's not the first woman hired -- Becky Hammon had that honor.)
And Christianity Today (!) reports that a National Football League team has, for the first time, hired a female coach.
