“When I was growing up, I read voraciously,” Tzavelas said. “But relatively early, I started becoming aware of the differences between how special girls and special boys were presented in fantastic fiction. It was usually pretty simple: Boys had the power to save (or maybe destroy) the world. Girls had the power to give birth to the boy who would save (or maybe destroy) the world. They might die in the process, or live to have the grave and important duty of teaching that boychild how to use his power responsibly.

Noxxon Pharma will test experimental drugs made from short strands of RNA, which is ordinarily quite delicate. Enzymes called nucleases can destroy the stringy substance within minutes.

Over the past two years, designer labels have tried to cash in on the flood of tablets entering the market. The typical approach is to offer a high-fashion iPad case, à la Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Coach.

Pierre Cardin’s offering is somewhat more original, as it’s an actual device produced and owned by the label itself.

So I got really engaged by doing that, the interaction with kids and what you learn about kids from what they make, encouraging kids. Part of it is just empathy for me: I was that kid, and now I’m helping that kid, you know? That has a lot to do with it for me. So I got involved in this teaching project, and it’s just built and developed over the years for me. It’s a passion of mine. And I just like kids: I like working with them, and I like their ideas, and what they teach you about them and yourself. I like having that interaction.
