              Within every woman who has ever lived, hidden in plain sight in the last place we would think to look for it, lies a vast and beautiful untapped resource - a design whose breath-taking elegance and sophistication has not yet occurred to us. In naming women's four-m sequence of me...narche, menstrual cycle years, menopause and mature life as a single entity going far beyond its fertility function, the femenome model makes visible, speakable, usable and meaningful the potent feminine hormonal energies that have too long been mysterious and even disturbing to us.

              Since its emergence in early 2020, the COVID-19 crisis has affected every part of the world. Well beyond its health effects, the pandemic has wrought major changes in people's everyday lives as they confront restrictions imposed by physical distancing and consequences such as los...s of work, working or learning from home and reduced contact with family and friends. This edited collection covers a diverse range of experiences, practices and representations across international contexts and cultures (UK, Europe, North America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand). Together, these contributions offer a rich account of COVID society. They provide snapshots of what life was like for people in a variety of situations and locations living through the first months of the novel coronavirus crisis, including discussion not only of health-related experiences but also the impact on family, work and social life and leisure activities. The socio-material dimensions of quotidian practices are highlighted: death rituals, dating apps, online musical performances, fitness and exercise practices, the role of windows, healthcare work, parenting children learning at home, moving in public space as a blind person and many more diverse topics are explored. In doing so, the authors surface the feelings of strangeness and challenges to norms of practice that were part of many people's experiences, highlighting the profound affective responses that accompanied the disruption to usual cultural forms of sociality and ritual in the wake of the COVID outbreak and restrictions on movement. The authors show how social relationships and social institutions were suspended, re-invented or transformed while social differences were brought to the fore. At the macro-level, the book includes localised and comparative analyses of political, health system and policy responses to the pandemic and highlights the differences in representations and experiences of very different social groups, including peopl

              IQ and the Y2K

              IQ was annoyed. This was understandable, as he had a number of particularly annoying things to be annoyed about. For one, he was unable to locate a star translayer (whatever that is). And most annoyingly, his spaceship was running on empty, and his attempts to secure some much-ne...eded Y2K to power his ship were continuously being thwarted. However, there was a glimmer of hope; the planet Earth, somewhere at the end of Orion Spur, miles from anywhere, had both a star translayer and some Y2K, although its inhabitants were completely oblivious to this fact. Another fact they were oblivious to was IQ's arrival - until George, third year university student and all-round space-nut, accidentally tripped over his spaceship.
