Sunspots 545

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

Christianity: Christianity Today says that churches aren't doing much to prevent divorces in couples who attend.

Christianity Today also has an essay on why complaining hurts us socially.

Computing:  itools is a sort of one-page yellow pages of the Internet, allowing you to find web sites that help you do things.

How to get your WiFi password, if you have forgotten it.

Politics: Republicans are often accused (probably with some justification) for wanting to put barriers to voting in place. But FiveThirtyEight, which is apparently not a right-wing site, argues that Democrats also want to put barriers in place, and that, for them those barriers are having more than one date for the various kinds of elections.

MarketWatch has posted a graphic, showing where US Foreign Aid goes. It's interesting. It does not distinguish between military-type aid, and other kinds, although the accompanying text gives some indication of how much is which, for a few countries.

Science: Wired on the most beautiful caterpillars in the world.

Interesting but sad article on divorce in the church. I think the churches could do more to help couples, but I don't know what.

I don't, either. Couples don't usually let it be known that they are in serious trouble until things have gone a long way.
