Logos is offering free Greek and Hebrew paradigm charts!  Oh, how I wish they would have released these 5 years ago.  It would have saved lots of tiny writing.

Apparently, Iran will have nuclear ICBM capabilities by 2015.  Not sure why we aren’t doing something about this…

Article from a libertarian writing about the Icelandic free state, who from 930-1262 had virtually no government and where the private market supplanted everything from executions to fire fighting.  (HT:  Phill Graham)

Article comparing the relative birthrates among secularists (~2.1 in the West) and religious fundamentalists (~5+).  Time and some basic Algebra 2 will tell you that religion isn’t going anywhere (for better and for worse).

Fascinating New Yorker article on the future of books… also an excellent summary of said article by Justin Taylor.

The World Bank released all of its data on World Development Indicators.

Matt Perman has a nice article on how not to motivate people in the workplace.
