1st Century New Testament Fragments -- A Dallas Theological Seminary professor says several new text fragments have been found, including a 1st century fragment from the Gospel of Mark, the earliest N.T. piece found yet.
The Myth of the Eight Hour Sleep -- This article was a relief to me!

Perfectly normal! A fascinating read.
