Luba ist humorvoll, sarkastisch, ein wenig überdreht – und vor allem völlig durcheinander. Sie ist schwanger und weiß nicht so recht, ob ihr das ins Konzept passt. Ihrem Lebensgefährten Horst erzählt sie nichts davon, sie macht sich ihre eigenen Gedanken. Die großen Pläne, die sie für ihr Leben und ihre Karriere als Radiomoderatorin hatte, sieht sie schon an sich vorbeiziehen. Dennoch freundet sie sich allmählich mit dem Gedanken an, dass sich Bernadette – so nennt sie ihr Baby – in ihr Leben schleicht. Selma Mahlknecht zeichnet in der ihr eigenen präzisen Sprache die Überforderung der Hauptfigur nach. Luba reflektiert und kommentiert den Zustand der Welt ebenso wie ihre eigene Rolle als Frau, trifft auf besondere Mitmenschen und wächst an ihren Schwächen. Letztlich geht es in Mahlknechts Roman aber um nichts Geringeres als die Liebe.

Gilbert Hernandez’s sprawling family saga focuses on the United States, where newly immigrated Luba and her sisters, body-builder Petra and therapist/film star Fritz, find their families’ and friends’ lives becoming more and more intertwined. As the three sisters have “memories of sweet youth,” the next generation finds the spotlight: Luba’s adult daughter Doralís emcees the proceedings in her role as mischievous host of a children’s TV show, while Petra’s little girl, Venus, has adventures with her aunt Fritz and her best friend Yoshio. At her mother’s urging, Venus also writes missives to her fierce, one-armed cousin Casimira, who’s back in Palomar. In these stories ― never before collected together ― Venus tells it like it is!

Introduction to the History of African Civilization: Precolonial Africa


Author: C. Magbaily Fyle

Publisher: University Press of America

Category: History

Page: 182

Introduction to the History of African Civilization explores the major issues dominating African Civilization from the earliest recorded period to the eve of colonial conquest of the continent. C. Magbaily Fyle begins with a discussion of the myths and prejudices underlying most analyses of African issues, and moves into a discussion of the origin of humanity; the similarities between the classical Nile valley civilizations of Egypt, Nubia, Kush, and Axum; and the spread of Islam through African societies. He portrays the systems of precolonial government and society, including the role of women in governance, as well as traditional trade and agricultural patterns. Fyle provides a new perspective on the Islamic Jihads, shifting focus from Sokoto and Macina to the Senegambia and the Upper Guinea region, and a revised interpretation of the Atlantic slave trade, which includes the importance of African objectors to this process. He also discusses important cultural features such as the traditional African food, architecture, and typical structures of towns.

How Elie Metchnikoff Changed the Course of Modern Medicine

Around Christmas of 1882, while peering through a microscope at starfish larvae in which he had inserted tiny thorns, Russian zoologist Elie Metchnikoff had a brilliant insight: what if the mobile cells he saw gathering around the thorns were the same as white blood cells that traveled to the site of an injury or infection in a human or other animal? Was this some form of cellular defense? Metchnikoff's theory of immunity, that phagocytes—white blood cells—formed the first line of defense against invading bacteria would eventually earn the scientist the unofficial moniker "Father of Natural Immunity" and a Nobel Prize. But first, he had to convince his colleagues, including the skeptical Robert Koch. Author Luba Vikhanski chronicles Metchnikoff's remarkable life, work, and discoveries in Immunity, the first modern biography of this hero of medicine. Metchnikoff was a towering figure in the scientific community of the early 20th century, a tireless humanitarian who worked to curb cholera, syphilis, and other diseases, and pioneered research into probiotics and gerontology. Though Metchnikoff is largely forgotten today, Vikhanski makes a compelling case that his work on natural immunity is finally receiving the attention it deserves.
