After years of research, scientists at the University of Michigan have developed the world’s smallest computer system to help treat glaucoma patients. This tiny unit, about the size of a single letter on a penny, contains a microprocessor, sensor, memory, battery, solar cell, and wireless radio with an infinitesimal antenna. Though it won’t be available […]

On May 23, 1940, Vice Admiral Bertram Ramsey rubbed his eyes in the caves beneath Dover Castle overlooking the English Channel and then jotted a quick note to his wife: “No beds for any of us last night,” he wrote, “and probably not for many nights. I’m so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes […]

It’s amazing what companies try to sell us to eat. A Scottish company offers a potato chip that tastes like haggis, Scotland’s national delicacy. For those of you unfamiliar with haggis, it is a blend of various sheep organs traditionally simmered in the animal’s stomach or intestines for several hours. Just think, you can now […]

In C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters, the senior devil, Screwtape, explains to the junior devil, Wormwood, why they must tempt humans to worry and not trust God: “There is nothing like suspense and anxiety for barricading a human’s mind agains the Enemy (God).

As hard as it was keeping up with our kid’s schedules, it’s even harder to keep up with the grandkids. I’ve now found myself on various email chains to find where and when games are being played, or concerts performed. The one for Sam’s school is Eagle Nation.
