WS Watch - The Williams Syndrome Blog

WS Watch

I have been tracking Williams Syndrome (a genetic condition my son was born with) on the web for a long time. It seems like more information is becoming known all the time.

So, I decided to funnel that info on to a dedicated blog that I have named WS Watch - Updates from the Web on Williams Syndrome. (That is a pretty original name, eh?)

Anyway, if you have any interest in WS I have posted a few helpful (I think) links to articles and other sources of information. For more of my personal view on WS as a parent, you can search this blog (kerux noemata) by the "Williams Syndrome" label.

[Update: I changed the name. It is now called Williams Syndrome Web Watch: Resources and updates from the Web on Williams Syndrome]

Asian Carp Invasion Part II

Although it would make fishing easier, I doubt we want to see these guys in our Great Lakes!

Alleged Terrorist Activity by "Toronto 18" Now Being Exposed | GTA | Alleged Toronto terror plot detailed in court:

There is finally more information being made available concerning the Toronto 18 - a group of men and youth arrested in 2006 for conspiring and training for a terrorist attack in Canada. Read the whole article for the facts. Here is an excerpt:

"Details of the alleged plot, which also included storming Parliament Hill and beheading politicians, emerged in a factum filed by the Crown that described the case against the accused as 'shocking and sensational.'

The document contains transcripts of wiretaps and videotapes that include one conversation in which one of the accused speaks of the group's ambitions."

Arc, Trace and Diagram! The Bones of Exegesis!

Gazing at Glory: Arcing and Tracing

Thanks to Doug Smith there is now an assembly of some really great articles on arcing and tracing. This is one of the most important tools in the exegete's toolbox.

When I was in seminary, our preferred method was labelled, "diagrammatical analysis." I still use that method, although it has been tweaked through the years by the arcing idea... and, of course, the emphasis on broader context and literary genre that men like Carson model so well.

Anyway, in case you missed it over the weekend, Challies linked to this page and I have downloaded all the articles. If you are an aspiring or well-seasoned student of the Word, I commend each of them to you!
