Sunspots 582

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

The Arts: This year is the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, who produced perhaps the strangest paintings ever painted. Here's a link to his most famous one, The Garden of Earthly Delights.

Christianity: A report that thousands of Tibetans, including some Buddhist monks, have come to belief in Christ, mainly because of the unselfish work of Christians after a disaster.

Computing: Gizmo's Freeware points to an article on how to use your Windows computer as a wireless hotspot.

Finance: FiveThirtyEight says that poor kids need summer jobs, but well-off kids are more likely to get them.

Science: Listverse reports on 10 very large one-celled organisms.

Listverse also presents 10 interesting facts about the planet Jupiter.

A writer in Wired considers the idea that we are not only making many species extinct, but are also doing things that make new species possible, and there have been some new species which have appeared recently because of what we have done in the environment.

Wired reports on the contents of sunscreen.
