First was the math courtesy of Teresa - an entry on Slashdot, Chinese Mathematicians Prove Poincare Conjecture. The last I'd read was that the Russian mathematician, Perelman, had a proof that was being verified. It seems that I'm not the only one on that track judging by the question on Ars Mathematica.
Second were several blog entries at ScienceBlogs referring to this story from Reuters - Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God

"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.
