By taking upon himself the task of spinning, Gandhi sought to draw attention not only to the plight of Indian households, which had been stripped of their earning capacity by the heartless introduction of mechanization, but to the exemplary role of women in keeping the household afloat through their daily efforts at spinning. As Gandhi had the unique gift of finding the heroic within the trivial, and of eliciting the poetic from the prosaic, so he found in the daily lives of women the most salutary lessons on how to run a country, engage in the political life, and lead a life of economic thrift and moral plenitude. The constant rotation of the spinning wheel, though it might have suggested stagnation to some, was to Gandhi a profound illustration of the sustaining power of women, and of their reliability as keepers of the hearth and guardians of a society moral codes.
“I would go to the sunglass store with hopes of buying the latest trending styles, but often left disappointed and empty handed.”She often settled for pairs that left marks on her cheek, slid down her nose or rode up her face when she smiled. Because after all, it was either that or wear no sunglasses at all. Her cofounder, Florence Shin, faced similar issues.”I envisioned myself delighted to try on new shapes and styles because what girl doesn’t love shopping, but the reality was that they never fit comfortably,” she said.
Quantum coherence is an essential ingredient in quantum information processing and plays a central role in emergent fields such as nanoscale thermodynamics and quantum biology. However, our understanding and quantitative characterization of coherence as an operational resource are still very limited. Here we show that any degree of coherence with respect to some reference basis can be converted to entanglement via incoherent operations.

The past decade has witnessed a burgeoning interest on the part of scholars in exploring queer identity in their subjects, most notably: Philip Brett, Gary Thomas, and Elizabeth Wood’s Queering the Pitch: The New Gay and Lesbian Musicology(Routledge, 1994); Howard Pollack’s work on Copland; David Metzer’s essays on Copland and Blitzstein; and Anthony Tommasini’s biography of Thomson. Hubbs’s book goes beyond these efforts, however. She perceptively analyzes how Copland, Thomson, and the circle of composers associated with them formed identities both individually and collectively vis vis American modernism and queer culture.
