I've been doing some blog roll tidying up, and note the following:
* added STAT, which is pretty good health and medicine site from the US
* added Crux, which seems to have decent Catholic commentary (not entirely sure where it fits on the conservative/liberal spectrum, though.)
* io9 link was recently changed by Gizmodo so it redirected to Australian Gizmodo - so I've changed the link to take you to US Gizmodo, where at the top is the link to io9.
* added the site for the Society for Psychical Research, which has been revamped and holds a lot more reading material and news than it ever used to. Despite the old fashioned name, it has always been a very reputable source for information on most things paranormal.
* fixed up the link to Asahi Shimbun, for Japanese and Asian news.
There are probably some more links sites I should delete because I just rarely use them, but they can stay for now.
Update: nearly forgot - have added Axios, with its unique short, sharp and fast style.
