Discovery Makes Black Holes More Puzzling. “A new survey revealing more than a thousand supermassive black holes in one region of the sky calls into question a popular model of how the gravity monsters behave.”

A history of duelling.  “Somewhere in our molecular makeup a sword-bearing protein squalls to have its day.”  The opening paragraphs don’t fully illuminate the hypocrisy of Hamilton.  The 2004 reenactment.

NY Times Science:

Philistines, but Less and Less Philistine.  “... the Philistines had fine pottery, handsome architecture and cosmopolitan tastes. If anything, they were more refined than the shepherds and farmers in the nearby hills, the Israelites, who slandered them in biblical chapter and verse and rendered their name a synonym for boorish, uncultured people.”

Buried batteries contaminate Bernalillo site.  “Bynum said the batteries were likely buried in the 1960s and 1970s. Before the 70s, she said it was not unusual for companies to dispose of materials by burying them.”  This was the gift that kept on giving in NJ.  Dig, you never know what you’ll find.

The Art Newspaper:

Not the Burgomaster of Delft and his daughter. “The following year Steen painted Adolf and Catharina on the steps of their home. It is a summer scene, so it may have been linked to the girl’s 13th birthday. Grijzenhout and Van Sas speculate that the bouquet of flowers on the window sill may represent her deceased mother, Ariaentge, in which case she is standing between her two parents.”

Rather than invest in another email client,

I discovered Google Mail turned on my ‘POP account access’ features.  I filled it up with my other accounts, and I’m finding a couple of distinct benefits:

1. Responses to comments on the weblog are stored as threads.  Handy.
2. Spam filtering is much superior to any other email solution I’ve used.

This spam filtering is in addition to having SpamAssassin tag and Google’s filters delete the gross excess.  Spam has gotten rather aggressive since the holidays.  I am surprised, actually, how much time I’m saving over dealing with spam overall, since trying this switchover.  It’s like a gift of time.  Priceless.
