Interesting Stuff: Final for 2009

This is my final collection of interesting stuff for the year.

Astronomy:

Anthropology and Geology:

  • Oldest verified case of leprosy. (Slightly spoiled by the bit about the Turin Shroud, particularly the misguided words “hitherto assumed”.)
  • Geologists explain the Petermann Ranges.

Biology:

Psychology and Language:

Social:

  • Don’t forget to show your support for English libel reform.
  • Also to oppose Internet filtering in Australia. (I do object to the way the journalist uses the name of the country metonymically; this isn’t a context where that device is acceptable.)
