Andante: Scales and Proportions for a Chemical Orchestra Amid the Fraying Social Norms
Anne Tardos

Meanwhile, astronomers have discovered that the Milky Way galaxy resembles champagne, full of bubbles, so we live inside the so-called Local Bubble, where among other things, Yiddish scholars are rescuing women’s novels from obscurity.


Their frustration with men’s advocacy for unrestrained sexuality and their lack of concern about the consequences for her.


The relationship between a small-town Jewish girl uprooted due to anti-Semitic violence and the dashing revolutionary who routinely disappoints her.


The fact that the astronomer who spends much time looking at the new images of our galaxy’s center, never gets tired of it.
