Some Sunday Links

Here are some links for you. First, the science stuff:

  1. San Francisco has made a deal to have universal, no-cost wi-fi for the whole city.
  2. Here’s a cool article on filter feeders, with a nice picture of some ascidians.
  3. Here’s a very nice post about genetic draft
  4. Revere at Effect Measure discusses the different evolutionary rates of H3 and H1 influenza viruses.

The other stuff:

  1. Katha Pollitt has the best New Year’s resolutions EVAH!
  2. The rightwingosphere and Holocaust deniers think the same way.
  3. No blood for oil. Eh, not so much.
  4. Resolve is one thing, paranoia another. Amanda explains; the News Blog comments.
  5. Like Matt Yglesias, I too am tired of being smeared with anti-Semitism when I adopt positions to the left of the Likud.
  6. You probably know that the wingnutosphere doesn’t have much credibility, but Glenn Greenwald says it so well.
  7. The Nitpicker doesn’t think it’s very Catholic to oppose the minimum wage.
  8. I’ll have a lot more to say about this, but Disney is playing hardball with bloggers who point out that their radio stations employ hate-mongering radio hosts.
  9. Will health insurance companies go the way of the horse and buggy?
  10. I’ve posted about the GOP’s tolerance of sexual slavery. It appears the Democrats might do something about it.
  11. Big bidness is very worried about the Democrats.
