Sunspots 573

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


Christianity: A resource on the history of the Biblical canon.

Computing:
Wired on how to make passwords more secure.

Health: Wired reports on the dangers of driving over the speed limit, or of setting the speed limit higher.
 
Politics: National Public Radio has a commentary on how the news media failed to cover Donald Trump properly.

FiveThirtyEight weighs in on how and why Trump won the Republican nomination.

FiveThirtyEight also reports that Trump supporters have higher incomes than the public at large, which is contrary to what has often been said, or implied.

Science: Listverse reports on animals that decorate themselves, or their surroundings.

Listverse also reports on 10 small isolated villages where health conditions rare elsewhere are common.

Wired reports that the simple little hydra may be potentially immortal, and explains why.

Interesting NPE commentary on Trump's coverage. Bit puzzling, and depressing. Why didn't they expose him? His past is out there for all to remember. Occasionally we'd get little snippets of problems, but not enough to dissuade his many fans.

I remember studying hydra in school. Fascinating, and humorous article.

Oops, NPR article, not NPE.

I once found some hydra in some water and leaves I collected in a creek.

I'm not sure if anything would have dissuaded Mr. Trump's fans.

Thank you. Good to see you commenting again.
