Some science and environmental links

A few items of interest:

-- The best map yet of the early universe (more precisely, of the cosmic microwave background).

-- "Yes, conservatives can be environmentalists. Here's how." A look at the thinking of Jonathan Adler, who emphasizes property rights in protecting the environment.

-- "The Mechanics of the Pull-Up (and Why Women Can Absolutely Do Them)." My longtime favorite exercise finally getting some of its due.

UPDATE: One more: "The Heretic," by Andrew Ferguson at The Weekly Standard, reviewing Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False, by Thomas Nagel (a book I haven't read as of yet).
