Here’s a few things I found interesting on the Web this past week:

Serious Things:

1. Tiffany Orthman tackles the Common Core question over at the HEDUA Blog: http://hedua.com/blog/to-core-or-not-to-core/

2. The crew at Mortification of Spin tackle extra revelation. Find it through Aimee Byrd’s excellent website “Housewife Theologian” here: http://www.housewifetheologian.com/hear-calling/

3. Be really careful with chainsaws: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/04/02/x-ray-shows-chain-saw-stuck-in-tree-trimmer-neck-before-removal/?intcmp=features

Not-so-serious Things:

1. This post about Homeschool books: http://hedua.com/blog/snarky-homeschooling-books/

2. The Yankees lost: http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=340401118 (Which is funny because the tone in Sports World is like they deserve to win just because Derek Jeter is retiring. Um, no.)

3. This cat: http://www.cleanfunnypics.com/still-cant-find-it/#axzz2xkGdW7B1

Intriguing Things:

1. Vikings could plunder about later with this: http://www.livescience.com/44369-images-viking-twilight-compass-helps-navigate-north-atlantic.html which cuts against the “ignorant ancestors” way we look at history. Ancient folks may have been smarter than we admit.

2. As a believer that God created everything, I say of this: http://www.foxnews.com/science/2014/04/02/water-on-earth-and-moon-may-have-common-origin/ “DUH!”

3. Cool stuff about Petra: http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/ancient-cultures/ancient-near-eastern-world/solving-the-enigma-of-petra-and-the-nabataeans/ (the site, not the band)

Self-promotional Things:

1. I’m back to doing the Proverbs Blog: http://reflectionsonproverbs.blogspot.com/2014/04/proverbs-1-for-april-2014-by-doug.html

2. I wrote this on Science for HEDUA: http://hedua.com/blog/science-phobia/

3. I wrote this on discernment for the same folks: http://hedua.com/blog/hedge-discernment/

4. According to Google, this is the most popular blog post I’ve written: http://www.doughibbard.com/2011/09/severability.html
