New Superhero T-Shirts Latest in a Long Line of Sexist Licensed Products from DC AND Marvel I’m not entirely sure who is making the decisions when it comes to licensing at DC Entertainment, but recently two somewhat controversial shirts have appeared at retail outlets, and it’s safe to say most people aren’t very happy with them. The first shirt was revealed on the DC Women Kicking Ass page, which features an image of Superman and his now-girlfriend Wonder Woman locked in a mid-air kiss from the cover of Justice League #12, with art by Jim Lee. It’s already an older image, so why all the hubbub now?
Wonder Woman and Superman get new costumes in the comics This year, both major comic houses summer events are going to reboot their continuities. Marvel is going all in and throwing out their “616” universe and years of continuity in an event called Secret Wars and DC is doing a minor reboot in an event called Convergence. Where as Secret Wars is ending a large swath of Marvel continuity, DC’s mini reboot is notable for ending the so called “New 52,” their experiment in a complete reboot of their line undertaken in 2011. Not all of the new comics soared, some flat out face-planted, but some of the New 52 eventually found its footing and prospered for a few years (for my – and a lot of readers’ money – it’s Scott Snyder’s work with Batman). Convergence will hit this April and by the time June rolls around, the New 52 era at DC will be over. Now it’s time for something new once again!
O Brother, Where Art Thou? - Wikipedia O Brother, Where Art Thou? is a 2000 adventure film written, produced, edited, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, and starring George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson, with John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and Charles Durning in supporting roles. Set in 1937 rural Mississippi during the Great Depression, the film's story is a modern satire loosely based on Homer's epic poem, Odyssey. The title of the film is a reference to the 1941 film Sullivan's Travels, in which the protagonist (a director) wants to film a fictional book about the Great Depression called O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
Yvonne Brill and the Beef-Stroganoff Illusion The most grating phrase in the opening paragraph of the Times’s obituary of Yvonne Brill, a rocket scientist whose inventions satellites still depend on, is not the one the newspaper changed after a burst of outrage—the one about beef Stroganoff. The Stroganoff, if anything, is a clue, one ignored in the obituary, whose greater flaws, like Brill’s achievements, are hidden in plain sight. Here is how it originally began: She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job and took eight years off from work to raise three children. “The world’s best mom,” her son Matthew said. But Yvonne Brill, who died on Wednesday at 88 in Princeton, N.J., was also a brilliant rocket scientist, who in the early 1970s invented a propulsion system to help keep communications satellites from slipping out of their orbits.

Brenda Milner: A scientific pioneer and a reluctant role model In the early 1950s, Wilder Penfield, one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons at the time, performed what should have been a straightforward elective surgery. The patient, an engineer who headed his department, had come to the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, affiliated with McGill University, with epileptic seizures. The results of the surgery were catastrophic. “He couldn’t remember anything that happened. He couldn’t go out for dinner and follow a conversation,” recalls the neuropsychologist Brenda Milner. “He had to be demoted to draftsman.
